their defense needs any help they can get.....
Inspired by no other than Ben Violin
He's actually a very good DC. Just because he was a terrible HC doesn't mean he can't do anything. Just look at Wade Phillips, for a recent example
I thought they were relocating
Wanny might not be the best Head Coach, but he has always been one of the top DC's in the league. Super Bowls with the Cowboys and built one of the better defenses in the league while with the Dolphins. Some guys are just ment to b coordinators and not head coaches like Wannstedt, Spagnolou, Childress, McDaniels, Nolan and Linehan just to name a few.
He's a good DC and certainly an upgrade above over-his-head George Edwards. He's also likely motivated thinking, probably delusionally, that a stellar performance will buy him back into a HC position.
"I worry about wins; I don't worry about meaningless fantasy #s"
(fine for RT17 but not when it comes to someone's HC and beloved QB)
lets see , buffalo gets a new DC, jets may lose OC,DC and ST coach retired. who knows what our future holds. looks to me like the pats will run away with the east again. blah
Wanny is a joke... the only reason he was successful as a coordinator was because he had premier talent.
Guy runs 4/3 press man concept which demands a MLB and shut down corners....
He is as vanilla as it gets and his D always caved when you needed it most in Miami.
