You have to think Miami Dolphins owner Steve Ross could use the Kobe System seminar right now.
Ross has already failed to reel in two big fish, missing on John Harbaugh and Jeff Fisher the past two offseasons, and now the Dolphins must finish executing plan B of their head coaching search, which will likely involve hiring one of the NFL’s hot, young coordinators.
Problem is there’s more competition for fewer quality head coach candidates out there, and the talent base of the competition is on par, if not superior, to what the Dolphins are offering.
Tampa Bay has what appears to be a young promising roster, which features a franchise quarterback in Josh Freeman.
I suspect that whole quarterback thing was the major reason the Dolphins lost out on Fisher to the Rams (okay, not offering Fisher complete power had a lot to do with it too).
Speaking of quarterbacks, Oakland has Carson Palmer and a half dozen very promising players like Darren McFadden, Jacoby Ford and Rolando McClain.
