The Miami Dolphins Should Sign Josh McDaniels As Their Offensive Coordinator

Now that the Miami Dolphins Head Coach situation is all settled up, it is time to start focusing on the Offensive Coordinator.

Previous Offensive Coordinator Dan Henning is stepping down, and it is time for the Dolphins to find another coordinator who is good at play calling and can use the strengths of his players to his advantage instead of trying to force them to use their weaknesses.

I have really only heard two different names as potential candidates for Offensive Coordinator: The first is Gary Kubiak, but it looks like he will remain as the Head Coach of the Texans. The second is Josh McDaniels, who was the Denver Broncos Head Coach for two years before being fired.

I am sure there are a lot of other candidates that Miami is considering, but those are the only two I have heard about.

I, personally, am very much in favor of the Miami Dolphins hiring McDaniels as their Offensive Coordinator. I know he hasn't done well as a Head Coach, but, from what I have seen, he can put together a great passing offense.

If you look at Broncos QB Kyle Orton, who is know available to trade for, and compare his numbers from his best year in Chicago to his two years in Denver, you can see how much he has improved under McDaniels. In just his first year with the Broncos he had almost 1000 more passing yards than his best year with the Bears, and if he hadn't been benched after 13 games this year, he would have been close to 1500 more yards than his best year with the Bears.

Not only is McDaniels good for quarterbacks, but he would also be good for Brandon Marshall. Under McDaniels, Marshall didn't get as many yards as previous year, but he did get a career-high in touchdowns. Isn't that what Miami has been missing this year? Touchdowns?

I don't know what you guys think about McDaniels, but I want him to come in and turn whatever quarterback we trade, sign, or draft into a star. If you combine the potential passing attack that McDaniels would bring with our current defense, you're talking a push for the Super Bowl as soon as next year.

Miami better go after McDaniels soon, though, because the Vikings are also looking at him. I bet there are other good offensive coordinators out there, but McDaniels may be exactly what Miami is looking for just because they need somebody to develop their new quarterback as well as help them score a lot of points.

Josh McDaniels is a huge step up from Dan Henning for the Miami Dolphins, and it would be a mistake if they didn't try and go after him before any other team gets him.

Let me know what you guys think, I look forward to hearing your opinions.
