Kevin Coyle Speaks To The Media

coyle e1402165361328 Kevin Coyle Speaks To The Media

DC Kevin Coyle

My Thoughts On the Kevin Coyle Interview:

This is the time of year when every new player reminds one of that shiny used car you just drove off the car lot. You did your research, and fell in love with the prospect of what this car can do for you. Maybe you were looking for comfort, and reliability? Or possibly something to hold you over until you could afford something better. In either case, you had expectations, and you felt comfortable this car would most likely suit your needs. That is how a coach sees every new player he is assigned. He may need to tune the engine, or tinker inside the dash, but the overall car is perceived as an upgrade, and a value. That’s the impression I get when I listen to coaches talk this time of year. Every player is a blessing, and each one is exactly what the team needs.

Here is most of Coyle’s Q&A interview from the other day. See if you don’t get a similar impression. I’ll comment under his answers as appropriate.

You can listen to the entire interview at www.miamidolphins.com

Bottom line the defenses job is to keep points off the board. We’ve finished 7th in 2012, and 8th in 2013. There are only 4 teams in the league that have been in the top 8 both seasons, those are SF, Seattle, Cincinnati, and us. 

The bottom line is keeping other teams out of the end zone and giving yourselves a chance to win. Like every team in the league there’s areas we need to get better at, but when all is said and done if we keep people from scoring points that’s the job of the defense, and really that’s what it is. We’ve been doing a really good job of that. We’ve been very good in the red zone, we were 5th in the red zone last year, and first the year before. Quarterback ratings against us last year, we were 5th in the league at 77.3%. There’s a lot of positives. We’ve had the 2nd least amount of touchdowns against us over a two year period. Seattle being the only team that’s been better then us, so yeah, there’s quite a few things to build on, but we want to be the best in the league in all these things so, uh, I feel that we’ve made great progress, but we’re not where we want to be. We want to build a championship defense that is going to take us to the Super Bowl. 

_____________________________________

I wonder to myself how coach would have responded if someone brought up Darren Sproles. He absolutely killed us in the Saints game, and it seemed we didn’t have an answer. Then there was Graham. It’s great to point out the positives, but the defense got outscored 8 times. That’s a lot in a 16 game season. I wonder too, how he felt about the final two games. No sugar coating, just an honest opinion.

Ranking the All-Time Dolphins by position part one – offense

Offense

Part one. Defense will follow.

This is an impossible task, and totally subjective which is what makes it both fun, and challenging. Some positions, like QB are easy; others like DE are brutally difficult.

The advantage I have in taking on a project like this is I’ve been a die-hard fan since Christmas Day 1971. I’ve seen almost every meaningful moment in franchise history. The disadvantage is I am old, and surely will forget someone I shouldn’t have. icon smile Ranking the All Time Dolphins by position part one   offense

Feel free to disagree, as I am using no specific formula, other then my perception of the player’s value to the team in the day he played. That being the case, a player like Larry Seiple could be in front of other punters who had a better average. Most positions I will list my top 3, unless I find it too unfair to do so, and no current day players will be included.

Here we go…

The obvious and far too easy position is QB.

  1. Dan Marino – Simply one of the best ever.
  2. Bob Griese – Very underrated QB who was as unselfish as they come. Hard to call a hall Continue reading

John Benton new Fins O-line coach

In a move that was pretty obvious the day he was hired it’s now official. John Benton has been named the new offensive line coach. In his first season in Miami he’ll be charged with a ton of change. He’ll need to improve the pass protection, the running game, and the culture. He’s got a full plate. To assist him will be Jack Bicknell Jr. formally from Pittsburgh. He was released by the Steelers in January after only one season of coaching their offensive line.

Let’s hope these two men are successful!
