DAVIE, Fla. -- The Miami Dolphins ran a stale and predictable offense last season under former coordinator Mike Sherman. Miami finished 27th in total offense and was inconsistent running and passing the football. ...

We are only in Phase 3 of the Dolphins’ offseason program, but Lazor is getting rave reviews from his players.

“It’s really interesting. I’ve never been in an offense like this, how it’s called, how it’s run, the combination routes,” Dolphins receiver Brian Hartline said. “There’s a lot of things going on that I haven’t done. It’s really exciting and actually, I’m really enjoying it. You can tell it puts a smile on my face. I can’t wait to learn more, do more and then put it into action.”

...

Lazor is still experimenting and learning his players. For example, one interesting wrinkle the Dolphins are toying with is how to use tailbacks Lamar Miller and Knowshon Moreno in the same backfield.

Not everything is going to stick come September. But Dolphins players seem to appreciate the creativity. That is a good sign at this early stage.

My hope is that Lazor is really impressive this year - then Ross/Hickey proceeds to fire Philbin and company, give Lazor the reigns and he brings in more of these Chip Kelly style people to get this team going.

Part of me thinks Ross really wants Philbin to succeed. There is no question he likes him a lot. And if he does falter its all in on Harbaugh.

Lazor has a chance to use this as a launching pad to a head coach position elsewhere, in my opinion. If he gets Tannehill and Co. going this year, and they make playoffs perhaps this year and in 2015 then I have no doubt he'll be a hot name ala Jay Gruden.

If Lazor exceeds, that would mean the offense would post up top 12 numbers...I don't see Philbin being fired in that scenario. Losing games wouldn't just reflect on Philbin, it makes them both look bad.
