I cannot seem to get away from Madden 08. 19 and 20 were solid games, and on PC were really great. Yet, they lack the charm and depth 08 still has over them, which is wild to me. So here are again. I had two great Madden 08 chises over on SS with the 2007 Ravens and the 2012 Bills and I'm ready to get back it. Thanks for dropping by.

Nick Sabans Resigns to Take Alabama Job
Image
January 4, 2007

DAVIE, Fla. -- "I am not going to be the Alabama coach."

After weeks of vehement denial that he would not abandon the rebuild project handed to him two years ago, Nick Saban is walking away from the Miami Dolphins to take the head coach opening for the Alabama Crimson Tide.

Dolphins owner Wayne Huizenga seemed unperturbed by the move that he was made aware of this Wednesday after a meeting at Saban's home.

"It is what it is," Huizenga started. "I'm not upset, because it is more involved than you think."

Saban had reportedly always been drawn to the college game and was experiencing a bit of buyer's remorse taking the Dolphins job after National Championship-level success at LSU. After a 15-17 record with the Dolphins, capped off by Saban's first losing season as head coach, he has decided to buy into Bama athletic director Mal Moore's pitch to build the Crimson Tide. The timing is ideal since the NCAA recruiting "dead period" ends this upcoming Friday.

The Dolphins now have the tall task of bringing a new head coach to lead the charge of this rebuild under general manager Randy Mueller. Names like Chicago Bears' defensive coordinator Ron Rivera, San Diego Chargers offensive coordinator Cam Cameron, and former Packers head coach Mike Sherman have been thrown around as potential replacements. Whoever replaces will be the fourth Dolphins head coach in nine years.

Miami Tabs Chargers' OC Cameron as Head Coach
Image
January 20, 2007

DAVIE, Fla. -- The search for the next head coach of the Miami Dolphins is over as they have successfully nabbed San Diego Charger's offensive coordinator Cam Cameron.

"There's a lot of great people in the organization," Cameron said in his introductory press conference. "I know Wayne, Randy, and I are all ready to win, and win soon."

The hiring comes on the heels of the surprise resignation of last year's head coach Nick Saban, who took the head coaching job at the University of Alabama after declining interest in the position throughout the 2006 season. Saban's Dolphins finished 9-7 in 2005 but regressed to 6-10 last year. Cameron is set to be the fifth Dolphins head coach since Don Shula's retirement in 1994. The team Cameron is inheriting was anemic on offense this past season and is aging heavily on defense.

The Dolphins search for a head coach definitely leaned more towards the offensive side of the ball, with the team averaging a lowly 16.3 points per game, their lowest mark since 1967. Cameron, with an offense spearheaded by young star QB Phillip Rivers and MVP LaDanian Tomlinson, helped lead the Chargers to an exciting 14-2 record.

Cameron confirmed he planned on retaining coordinators Mike Mularkey and Dom Capers, but he also plans on handling offensive install and playcalling this season.

"We're going to build an elite team here, and we are going to win."

Cam Cameron Coaching History:
  • 1984-1993: University of Michigan - Graduate Assistant ('84)/Wide Receivers Coach ('86-'89)/Quarterbacks Coach ('90-'93)
  • 1994-1996: Washington Redskins - Quarterbacks Coach
  • 1997-2001: University of Indiana - Head Coach (18-37 record)
  • 2002-2006: San Diego Chargers - Offensive Coordinator

Definitely a big part of the process is getting him going. Gotta capitalize on early round picks. Or else you end up like Jared Odrick, Ryan Tannehill, Dion Jordan, Jamar Taylor, Jawaun James, Laremy Tunsil, Charles Harris, Phillip Merling, Daniel Thomas, etc etc

Dolphins Trade for Green, Cut Ties with Culpepper
Image
June 10, 2007

MIAMI, Fla. -- After a few disgruntled weeks with the Chiefs organization, Trent Green has evacuated Kansas City for the kind beaches of Miami.

The Miami Dolphins has acquired pro bowl quarterback Trent Green from the Kansas City Chiefs for a conditional pick in the 2008 NFL Draft. Green had requested a trade from the Chiefs after claiming the team was edging younger quarterback Brodie Croyle and journeyman Damon Huard ahead in the quarterback race without letting Green truly compete. The Chiefs also requested him to take a pay cut for the 2007 season.

Green's 2006 season was plagued by injury, as a scary opening day concussion put his career in jeopardy. He was fortunate enough to return to the starting lineup at the end of the season, leading the Chiefs to a playoff loss against the Indianapolis Colts. He finished the seasons starting eight games, throwing for 1,342 yards, 7 touchdowns, 9 interceptions, completing 61.1% of his passes. In 2005, he made his second pro bowl appearance after throwing for over 4,000 yards and 27 touchdowns.

The move by the Dolphins adds competition to their quarterback room, which has been remodeled from last year's squad. A couple of days after the move, the Dolphins released quarterback Daunte Culpepper, a holdover from the Saban Era. The Dolphins acquired Culpepper for a second-round pick (instead of investing in Chargers' QB Drew Brees) but struggled with injuries and missed most of the season. He and his agent requested the release after the news break on Green's arrival.

The other quarterbacks are last year's main starter Cleo Lemon who the team re-signed as a restricted free-agent, Gibran Hamdan who has bounced around from teams and NFL Europe, and 2007 second-round pick out of BYU John Beck who seems to be viewed by the front office as the likely quarterback of the future.

We are likely to see a full-out quarterback battle this training camp, with Green and Lemon holding the lead.

Alright. Let's dig in here.
Who are you starting at QB? Lemon is probably best but there's a chance you could develop Beck?

Leaning on Ronnie Brown?

Wildcat?

Defense seems decent. Maybe need another cb and some pass rushers?

Not a lot to live up to with the 1-15 season. Think you can match the 11-5 2008?

Matt Ryan?

Green will likely be the starter week 1, but that doesn't shut the door on Lemon playing (I'm almost certain Green won't last the whole season). I'm gonna treat Beck like he's the QB of the future, and should the season get out of hand or Lemon and Green stink it up, he'll play and he'll get a chance to compete in future seasons when Green is gone.

Ronnie and Ricky til we die, we don't have the developed talent for a heavy pass game yet.

Since the Wildcat package in Miami's history is a function of the Tony Sparano/Dan Henning offense of '08, I won't use it this season at least. It is an option down the road.

Defense is a tough situation because the best players like Jason Taylor and Zach Thomas are old and have maybe two seasons tops left in them. We'll have holes to fill really soon and I don't care for how Cameron and Mueller drafted in '07 with regards to that. But DBs and pass rush are definitely current holes.

Record-wise, who knows? If key guys like our tailbacks and Green stay healthy I don't think 9-7, 10-6 are out of the realm of possibility. But it's not a super great roster.

If we're a high enough pick in '08, Matty Ice is definitely on the table.
