Please Stephen Ross, Don't Hire Brad Childress As The Miami Dolphins Offensive Coordinator

The Miami Dolphins are going to interview Brad Childress as a potential candidate for their Offensive Coordinator position. That is a bad idea, and the Dolphins must not hire Childress to run their offense if they ever want to win in the near future.

Yes, Childress did take his Minnesota Vikings to the NFC Championship game last season, but that was more thanks to Brett Favre's arm than it was Childress' leadership.

In fact, Childress seems to be a very bad leader. He lost the respect of the majority of his players in Minnesota while he was there, and I am worried that something similar would happen with the Miami Dolphins players if he came to South Beach.

We already have a possible problem brewing after the whole debacle between Stephen Ross and Tony Sparano, and bringing Childress in would just make things worse.

I would much rather the Dolphins go after somebody like Mike Leach, the former Texas Tech coach, or Chad Pennington. Technically, Pennington is still a player, but I doubt that he will come back and ever play again because of how weak his shoulder is.

Miami should hire Chad as either their offensive coordinator or quarterbacks coach before he gets a chance to coach for another team. He is a veteran with a lot of experience, and I really think he would be a great coach. He was basically a coach this year, so why not just promote him officially?

Please Stephen Ross, whatever you do, don't bring in Brad Childress. There are plenty of other candidates that you can look at instead of Childress. You talk about being committed to making a winning team, but then you go out and interview Brad Childress.

Thanks for reading, and please let me know what you think about Childress, Pennington, and Leach with your comments.
