    Besides Shula, best Phins Coach?

    After Don Shula, who is the best coach the Miami Dolphins have had?
    George Wilson (1966-69)
    Jimmy Johnson (1996-99)
    Dave Wannstedt (2000-2004)
    Jim Bates (interim 2004)
    Nick Saban (2005-2006)
    . I am not sure we can add Cam Cameron yet because we have not seen the team play in the regular season.

    Jim Bates. Even in the seven games he coached, he did a better job than the other garbage we've had after Shula, IMHO.

    That has nothing to do with his coaching ability. Out of that list, Jimmy Johnson is the best talent evaluator, especially in the later rounds, but Bates did the best job as a coach.

    I am not sure we can add Cam Cameron yet because we have not seen the team play in the regular season.

    I would have to exclude Cameron from the list, since he has not coached a season yet and despite the fact I genuinely like and appreciate his demeanor. Jim Bates was only HC because Pornstache got the heave ho and Bates didn't even survive the purge. Jimmy killed what was left of Marino's career and accomplished little else. Indeed you could say that Pornstache, Johnson and Saban all took the keys to the Ferrari and promptly drove it into the effing wall. George Wilson was kind of painful to watch; the birthing of an expansion team was more brutal in his time and he was probably in over his head. So, how freaking far do we fall from Shula to the rest of the swill in his wake? Pretty far I am afraid. I guess I would have to say none of the other HCs deserve utterance in the same paragraph. The short answer is there isn't a second best on the list. Sad but true.

    Saban had me fooled for a while. Cameron doesn't seem to have that in him. I think it is a good thing that there is a humane human at the helm again. Hey maybe they will play like an actual team this year instead of an ad hoc clusterfudge of elite and not so elite players, not very often on the same page. Here is to hoping.
