Wayne Huizenga Says Parcells Is ‘Going to Stay’ Even if He Sells the Dolphins
by November 30, 1999 @ 12:00 am (Category : Uncategorized )

Jan 4th 2009 10:14PM by Will Brinson (author feed)
Filed under: Dolphins, Lions, NFL Coaching, NFL Media WatchThe Miami Dolphins have now officially ended their 2008 season, which means it’s front office time again. Well, at least after they deal with landing a new owner.

Some controversy has circulated around Wayne Huizenga’s sale of the Miami Dolphins during this offseason; most of it’s politically infused, and, actually, the sell kind of makes sense from that fiscal standpoint. Of course, there’s one other bit of controversy: if Wayne sells the franchise, Bill Parcells has a clause in his contract that lets him walk out of Miami with $12 million in hand.
“Bill’s going to stay,” Huizenga said after the Dolphins’ 27-9 loss to Baltimore.

“He told me [Friday] he’s going to stay.”
That’s a pleasant stance to take and all — and probably one that Huizenga to take, since he doesn’t want to make it appear like his organization could crumble; after all, despite the great job that Tony Sparano has done, Parcells is the one who very, very quickly took the Fins from 1-15 all the way to the playoffs.

And as a result of his front office success, you’d have to think Parcells would be highly sought after by a team like, say, the Lions, would he come available on the market. None of that means he’ll leave, but at least he’ll certainly have some leverage with the new owner.

Ed Hochuli Works Ravens-Dolphins Playoff Game, NFL Grades Him Top Ref

Filed under: Dolphins, Ravens, NFL RefereesFour months after blowing a call that handed the Denver Broncos a win over the San Diego Chargers, Ed Hochuli has been rewarded by the NFL with a playoff appearance, working today’s game between the Baltimore Ravens and Miami Dolphins.

The NFL gives playoff assignments to officiating crews based on the way they performed during the regular season, and CBS announcer Phil Simms reported that the league actually rated Hochuli and the six other officials on his crew as the best team of officials in the league.

And although that won’t sit well with Chargers fans, it’s really not a surprise. Hochuli has long had a reputation for being a firm but fair ref, and just because he was very wrong on one very big call, that doesn’t make him a bad referee. If he’s been judged by the league office as the league’s best ref, he belongs in the playoffs.

Cam Cameron Won More Games in Miami This Year Than He Did as Their Head Coach

Filed under: Dolphins, Ravens, AFC East, AFC North, NFL CoachingSometimes you can’t make a coordinator into a head coach in the NFL. Malcolm Cameron (yes, that’s Cam Cameron’s real name, though I guess it’s reassuring to know his name isn’t Cameron Cameron) would be a perfect illustration. He’s a great offensive coordinator, yet his one head coaching stint in the NFL resulted in disaster, as he went 1-15 with the Dolphins last season.

I remembered thinking it was an awful hire for the Dolphins, simply because — even though he’s a great offensive mind — he was such a terrible head coach at Indiana, my alma mater. I endured watching 38-35 losses on a weekly basis during college, thanks to Cam’s lack of defensive prowess. He couldn’t even get to a bowl game with Antwaan Randle-El and his high-octane offense. Seriously, if you can’t succeed in the Big Ten, how are you cutting it in the AFC East?

Today, Cameron won his second game of the season in Miami, as an opposing offensive coordinator for the Baltimore Ravens. Coincidentally, his lone victory in Miami last season came against the Ravens.

Just as was the case last year, I’m sure Dolphins fans are happy to see him exit South Florida.

Against Ravens, Chad Pennington Forgot That He Was Comeback Player of the Year

Well, today’s playoff performance should temper all the “Chad Pennington should’ve won the MVP award” talk. I thought he deserved to be in the conversation, but it’s hard to argue against Peyton Manning landing the honor; the Colts won their final nine games of the regular season, and unlike Pennington, Manning the Elder had no running game to fall back on.

Via ESPN.com’s Tim Graham, Pennington wasn’t just bad against the Ravens, he was as dreadful as he’s ever been during his nine-year NFL career. And given that he was benched for Kellen Clemens last season, that’s saying a whole lot.

Ravens 27, Dolphins 9: Chad Pennington’s Bad Day Ends Miami’s Surprising Season

Filed under: Dolphins, Ravens, NFL Fans, NFL Playoffs

During the regular season, Miami quarterback Chad Pennington threw just seven interceptions, one of the lowest totals in the NFL among starting quarterbacks. On Sunday, during the Dolphins 27-9 Wild Card loss to Baltimore, Pennington was guilty of four interceptions while Miami turned the ball over five times against a swarming Ravens defense. Miami finished the day a -4 in the turnover department, after finishing the season with a league-best +17 margin in terms of turnover differential.

That’s not going to get it done. Continue Reading

Behind Enemy Lines: Talking Wild Card With Dolphins and Ravens Bloggers

Filed under: Dolphins, Ravens, AFC East, AFC North, NFL Playoffs I like the fact that no one is giving us any real credit for getting there. Jim Mora says on air that the best AFC East team is New England and there has been little “props” for winning the division as most of the kudos surrounds simply the turnaround. The Ravens are three-point favorites in this game and the Phins are getting tired of feeling second rate.

The Ravens are really beginning to gel in Cam Cameron’s offense and now they are getting contributions from Mark Clayton and Willis McGahee. Joe Flacco has come on strong since the last meeting with the Dolphins and has the third highest road QB rating among NFL quarterbacks. And of course the team’s defense is always dependable. The Ravens could be a dangerous post season participant.Continue Reading

All Four Home Teams Are Underdogs for Wild-Card Weekend

Filed under: AZ Cardinals, Chargers, Colts, Dolphins, Eagles, Falcons, Ravens, Vikings, NFL PlayoffsWinning an NFL division championship means a playoff spot, a home game and nothing else. All four teams that will be hosting the wildcard round of the playoffs are underdogs.

The lines for the four wildcard games has been set:

Eagles (-3) at Vikings
Falcons (-2.5) at Cardinals
Colts (-2.5) at Chargers
Ravens (-3) at Dolphins

The Falcons have two more wins than the Cardinals. The Colts have four more wins than the Chargers. The Ravens and Dolphins have the same record. The Eagles finished with just one less win than the Vikings but the same amount of losses.

Since the NFL has established the current playoff format in 2002, this has not been rare. In both the 2004 and 2005 playoffs, three of the four road teams won their wildcard matchups. This year, we have our first 8-8 division champion since 1985.

NFL Playoff Picks: FanHouse’s ‘Experts’ Predict Wild Card Round Results

It’s an interesting week to begin shaking the Magic 8 Ball here, as these games each have interesting storylines but no clear-cut favorite. Not only are, shockingly, all of the road teams favorites in Vegas, but none of the spreads venture past three points.

That indecision amongst oddsmakers and bettors is reflected in our picks; very rarely is the same four-team combination picked, there’s a nice variety in the selections. It’s hard not to imagine a myriad of possibilities in all of these contests, and that’s the way the playoffs should be — competitive and intriguing.

See who we all picked, and add your own predictions, after the jump.Continue Reading

FanHouse Preview: Ravens vs. Dolphins

When the Ravens faced the Dolphins in Week 7, both teams were 2-3 and coming off forgettable 2007 seasons. I’m pretty sure nobody had Baltimore finishing the year 9-2 or Miami winning the division. Yet 11 weeks later, here we are.

The Ravens won 27-13 back in October in what has now become a familiar formula: run, run, play-action; matriculate the ball down the field; control the clock; and let the defense take care of the rest.

Pretty much everybody likes the Ravens tomorrow, partly because of their suffocating defense, and also because the Dolphins haven’t beaten anybody outside the AFC East. Of their 10 non-divisional games, Miami was an impressive 7-3, but the teams they beat combined for a 36-76 record. So, yeah, there are some skeptics. The Ravens, on the other hand, smoked the Eagles, Redskins and Cowboys, and played the Steelers well enough to win. Twice.

Now the question becomes: can Miami concoct variations of the Wildcat that will work against Baltimore’s defense? And when running a conventional offense, will Chad Pennington be able to play up to his MVP candidate form against the Ray Lewis All-Stars?Continue Reading

NFL Playoff Fantasy Football Guide

Filed under: AZ Cardinals, Chargers, Colts, Dolphins, Eagles, Falcons, Giants, Panthers, Ravens, Steelers, Titans, Vikings, AFC East, AFC North, AFC South, AFC West, NFC East, NFC North, NFC South, NFC West, Fantasy Football, NFL PlayoffsThere are several different fantasy playoffs models, so it’s difficult to accommodate everyone when doing any set of fantasy advice for the real playoffs. Most common models require you to do a bit of prognosticating as far as the actual game winners. To that, I say good luck. This isn’t like last year, where we all knew the Patriots were going to the Super Bowl. This season the playoffs are wide open, and no, I don’t think the Giants are a sure thing to make the big game. They are the surest bet, but it’s still a bet.

Anyway, we’re going to analyze some of the players.

First, here are the regular-season defensive rankings for the teams playing this postseason.

Pittsburgh Steelers (1, 2, 1, 1)
Baltimore Ravens (2, 3, 2, 3)
Philadelphia Eagles (3, 4, 3, 4)
New York Giants (5, 9, 8, 5)
Minnesota Vikings (6, 1, 18, 13)
Tennessee Titans (7, 6, 9, 2)
Indianapolis Colts (11, 24, 6, 7)
Miami Dolphins (15, 10, 25, 9)
Carolina Panthers (18, 20, 16, 12)
Arizona Cardinals (19, 16, 21, 28)
Atlanta Falcons (24, 25, 22, 11)
San Diego Chargers (25, 11, 31, 15)Continue Reading
