    Dolphins Head Coach Joe Philbin has retained Special Team Coach Darren Rizzi

    The same source said Philbin has retained Darren Rizzi as special-teams coordinator but is letting go of almost all the rest of the Dolphinsí assistants.

    I am OK with Rizzi returning, since Special Teams were better this season. Carpenter and Fields are solid players, they did block two punts and Gates seemed to improve as the year went on.

    Hopefully we have a real kick and punt return...

    Bess is completely useless.

    How did that suck?

    The special teams units definitely were trending in the right direction. Rizzi inherited a total cluster problem from about as bad of an assistant (Bonamego) as you can find. And they trended positively once Rizzi came on. So, that's something. At the same time, I still wonder if we could do better. I wouldn't call our units as stellar, but at least they were headed in the right direction. So, I'm open minded on Rizzi for another year. This year on ST was nothing like the amateurish 3 years under that idiot Bonamego.

    I haven't seen any blocked punts by the Dolphins special teamers in years before this year. Rizzi's done a good job.

    We do need an impact kick returner however.
