The Miami Dolphins have been mired in mediocrity for to long, they have tried to correct the ship the only way short sited organizations know how, by getting the biggest fish in the sea and praying for results. I do commend them for spending there money on the hottest commodity, but usually when you spend a premium price on a hot commodity the stock drops. That is the Miami Dolphins Organization in a nut shell, allot of investment no return. It is time to buy penny stocks because well, it can't get any worse.
The Dolphins should hire someone with allot of risk, someone that would be controversial, someone who is innovative, and someone FUN for god sake. The Dolphins should hire Mike Leach. Now before everyone starts screaming bloody murder at such a preposterous suggestion, let me defend my position.
THE SPREAD OFFENSE.
The New England Patriots began there scorched earth campaign against the NFL with an Offense that was fashioned after Texas Tech. With the exception of Randy Moss, the New England offence is a system ran by quick slot receivers and tight ends creating havoc in the middle of the field, and every once in a while a draw or two. The Spread offence works in the NFL!!
THE SHOCK FACTOR
Hiring Mike Leach will surely be noticeable, curious, intriguing, controversial, and FUN!! This team has been boring for to long. Hiring Mike Leach would surely put people in the seats because of curiosity alone. The Dolphins would be headline material in ESPN on a weekly basis, and the experiment of the decade in the NFL.
THERE IS NOTHING TO LOSE
The number one enemy to excellence in the NFL is mediocrity. The Dolphins are a victim of there constant struggle to keep their heads above water. They had one opportunity in decades to draft first and they BLEW IT!! I'm not saying we should tank seasons, but I am saying that taking a huge risk can pay dividends one way or the other.If he's a failure then we move on with a high pick and a potential franchise QB dropping to us. If he succeeds then all is well in Davie, and everyone gets a pat on the back for a job well done.
IT WILL COST NOTHING
Lets Face it getting Mike Leach during a looming lockout is serendipitous. He lives in Florida, he would take penny's on the dollar, and would probably be more than happy to inherit Mike Nolan as a coordinator and Jeff Ireland as a GM.
I realize it would be a cold day in hell the day the Dolphins hire Mike Leach, but that is the kind of inspiring hire that will get this franchise, notoriety, popularity, gumption, and eventual prosperity. It is TIME to think outside the box.
