New Offensive Coordinator Must Bring In Something New

New Offensive Coordinator Must Bring In Something New


I know all the talk here is bringing in someone who has ties to Philibin or even the Green Bay Packers, my response to that…is why?

Why are we bringing in someone that will implement the exact same type of offense that we have seen in the past two years, what development will that bring in? How can you spin that to the fans? We believe the hiring of this candidate will bring the same type continuity that Sherman produced.

Hold the applause.

The fact that our points per game only increase by a factor of 1, should tell everyone that we need something new.  I am not saying we should shy away from the west coast offense, but at least a new perspective of that type of attacking offense.

Who might be available…in my opinion you don’t have to look that far.  This former coach has the ties to the Miami area and implements a version of the West Coast offense that might entice the fan base. Who is the prospective coach; Rob Chudzinksi.

Rob Chudzinksi aka Chud,  played and coached for his Alma matter and the University of Miami.  He had a one year stint as the Cleveland Browns head coach before he was fired this offseason.  Why fire a coach one year into his program doesn’t make sense to me. Chud did his best with a very weak skill set, and deserved a little more credit than he got, but then again he decided to take the head coaching job of the Cleveland Brown who’s head office drama is worse that our team.

In 2010, Chud was the Offensive Coordinator for the Carolina Panthers, where he took one of the league’s worst offense and transformed them into a top ten offense.  Furthermore he took the development of an erratic first round quarterback to the next level.  Cam Newton thrived under the mentorship of Chud.  Reviewing our team, I believe Ryan Tannenhill has graduated and learned all he can from Mike Sherman.  Chud would be able to cater an offense to Tannenhill best assets and would be able to take his skill sets to the next level.  Chud has proven experience in achieving this goal, something that we can’t say Mike Sherman had.  Just to put things in perspective, in 2010, the Carolina Panthers finished seventh overall in the league on offense, fifth in points scored, and set a new franchise record for total yards in a season.

Let that marinate for a second.  Is that exactly what we are looking?

The only downside of adding a coach like Chud is that it might not be for long. If we do hire this former Hurricane, and he implements a type of offense that brings us to the next level, his name will once again be linked to head coaching vacancies, but that is a risk we should be willing to take.

I understand the bringing in someone who has ties to our front office is great in order to ensure everyone is on the same page, and doesn’t break the cohesion that has already been created.  However, we tried that the past few years and it didn’t work. It’s time to try something different and the solution is right in front of us.


Do you think the Dolphins should hire Rob Chudzinksi as their next OC?

    What about Kyle Shanahan? The Texans Offense was very good under him and then dropped off after he left for Washington. The only bad season he has had as an OC was this one and I don’t think you can blame that on him considering the level of dysfunction in that organization.

      That would be a completely different scheme…would Kyle bring in the pistol offense or would be bring in his zone blocking scheme…the diversity allows for multiple looks…interesting option.

    I have no problems with Chud. I think he was one of the candidates when Sherman was hired? Plus if
    philbin is canned next year, he might be the next head coach.

      other way around my friend…he was a candidate for the Head Coaching job….

    i agree and love reading articles on this site because you GET IT. there’s so many people who write to not offend anyone. Philbin wanted to keep Sherman so he’s going to hire someone to runt he same offense which is ludicris.. we need fresh, young blood to boost this offense. Personally i thank Ross for making moves but he made them in a backward manner, and i’m not one of those never pleased fans i’m just saying philbin thought Sherman did a great job. That right there is cause for concern. We’ll see next year i guess. OC is a big part but Tannehill better work on that deep ball because if he has a season like he did in 13, someone better open their eyes and move on. BCS championship game QB’s were lofting deep balls with beauty that tannehill can’t do that 2 years in is a major problem that hasn’t been solved.

      Mike thanks for the read and for the insight. I completely agree with you on the deep ball…think about this for a second, what would are record be if Tanny actually hit Wallace in stride on half of the long balls that he threw? The one that matters the most, the game against the Jets…if we would have connected, it would have been 14-0 and a completely different ball game…

      Woulda coulda shoulda!

    Tanny got no help from Wallace. In both the Jets game (& I think the Carolina game) Wallace dropped td passes in the endzone. But more importantly, no one taught Wallace to come back for slightly under thrown deep passes and get the pass interference. I mean, if you’re 3 steps past the defender and the ball is under thrown, stop running and jump into the defender who is sprinting to catch up to you. That’s how great receivers help out their qb’s. This doesn’t even consider how little time RT had to throw deep.
