This is what happens when you’re shopping in the bargain bin. The Dolphins’ new offensive coordinator could very well get fired this time next year along with the remaining Bifecta, and everyone knows it. Tony “Sir Kicks-a-lot” Sparano is on thin ice, despite what Ross’ extension and raise might have the football world believe. So when Sparano comes knocking it’s hard not to notice the Grim Reaper off in the distance, checking his watch.
After a parade of uninspiring candidates we have ended up with recently fired OC Brian Daboll, who was just sent packing after coordinating the league’s #29 offense in Cleveland. That was a great improvement (eyes rolling into back of head) on Daboll’s 2009 offense, which was of course 32nd in the NFL.
This is Ireland and Sparano’s first move after the “clusterfin” we just witnessed in Davie? This is the game changer? Specifically told to implement an unpredictable, dynamic offense, they’ve imported one of the two human beings who somehow managed to conjure up fewer points than Dan Henning?
A curious choice, to say the least. Maybe we’ll get an inspired performance out of Mr. Daboll? After all, if he tanks it as an OC his second time around he’ll probably never get another shot. Maybe we’re about to see a touchdown explosion for the ages, an innovative, unpredictable, dynamic attack the likes of which has never been seen? One can dream. If Daboll’s got that somewhere inside him, he hasn’t shown it yet.
But hey, that’s life in the bargain bin.
