Different GMs have different philosophies and the Miami Dolphins are no different but they all have struggled to fix areas of need and so has Chris Grier.

We can travel back a long way and find plenty of problem areas for the Miami Dolphins. Jeff Ireland for example, loved his pass-rushing linebackers. Dion Jordan, Danell Ellerbe, Cam Wake, Karlos Dansby, and a few more. Despite his attempts to fix linebacker issues, Ireland couldn’t get the right coaching staff in place to make them work.

Dave Wannstedt did a great job with the defense making it an annual juggernaut but all he could do on offense was put the onus of the game on the legs of Ricky Williams.
