A Case For Bill Cowher

http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/football/jets/2008/12/30/2008-12-30_jets_bill_cowher_agree_to_discuss_coachi.htmlDuring the Miami Dolphins press conference on Monday morning following the loss to the Buffalo Bills, head coach Tony Sparano adamantly defended offensive coordinator Dan Henning, who leads an offense that’s last in points scored in the NFL.  “I think that Dan Henning, for Tony Sparano, has been tremendous,” said Sparano, in the third person.  “I think the guy has done a wonderful job during my time here.  I look at the entire body of work, you guys just look at the last three or four games.”   Go back to early October and you’ll see reports questioning Henning for his play calling, not just the last couple games.  Those statements may likely take Sparano down with Henning this off-season.

The next question for most Miami Dolphin fans is if Tony Sparano will be fired and who will replace him.  More importantly, how can the Dolphins get Bill Cowher if Sparano does go down?  Good question.

    The kind of fulsome praise Sparano spewed on Henning, especially his bizarre referring to himself in the third person, is tantamount to saying Henning is a lame duck. It will be very interesting to watch the interaction of the offensive coaches at the game on Sunday.

    As I will be at the game, and the season’s destiny is cast, I’m going to do the best I can to observe the interaction between the offensive coaches and the team, as well as amongst each other. For once, the interminabale commercial breaks will serve a purpose.

    As far as Cowher is concerned, I don’t know. As I’ve made it boringly clear, I think the key to a great season is getting an OC on a par, or reasonably close, to Nolan is critical. The draft and an FA signing can do the rest. The new OC hardly has to be a big name. Just someone with a good record of adapting to his personnel effectively. Our defense has proven that once the offense is competent, it can do the rest.
