The Dolphins made a great hire today in former Packer offensive coordinator Joe Philbin. Philbin was high on a lot of lists around the league and I think he will have a good run in Miami. I personally believe Philbin will have more success in Miami than Jeff Fisher will have in St. Louis. I guarantee it will be on the minds of Dolphins fans going forward. The big question is whether or not Matt Flynn follows Philbin to Miami. Smart money says yes. This is a nice bonus for the Dolphins, I think Flynn is actually under-rated at this point. There are worse quarterbacks than Flynn making more money than he will get in free agency, and he will be worth his paycheck. One thing that has not been mentioned a lot is that Philbin will be trying to bring familiar faces from the Green Bay coaching staff with him. Watch for others to make the move from Wisconsin to Florida. The Dolphins will also be switching to a West Coast offense and I think this suits Dolphins personnel just fine. This will benefit Brandon Marshall, especially if Flynn is on board. Miami took their time and did their research and I believe they ended up better off in the end. Congratulations to Joe Philbin and the Dolphins.
