Please say no to Marty
The thinking is that Schottenheimer is a solid coach who has straightened out teams in Kansas City, Cleveland and San Diego. Once upon a time, there was talking within the Dolphins that if Don Shula could name his replacement it would have been Marty Schottenheimer because Shula has the utmost respect for the guy.
But I say if Miami seriously considers this, it's ridiculous.
Without taking into account how uncomfortable it would be to consider both Marty and Brian, his son who is a finalist already, there is a more compelling reason why the elder Schottenheimer is not a good fit.
Schottenheimer is the coach with the most NFL regular-season victories that has failed to win any championships. Why waste your time on a guy who has proven unable to win the big game despite having the best team -- as he did this year in San Diego?
I say pass on Marty. What do you think?
By the way guys, the Herald keeps track of how many hits each of its blogs get. This blog is fourth in the Herald's lineup of like 20 blogs for most hits since January. That's good if you don't mind being fourth.
But if you're like me, fourth doesn't mean squat. So start hitting the button more often. I'll try to post more stuff and more interesting stuff. By the way, the Herald doesn't pay me a penny more to do this, in case some of you degenerate thinkers were already going there.
