Chan Gailey’s Miami offense might look a lot like the Jets 2015 offense

Chan Gailey last ran an offense four seasons ago.

Gailey, 68, has not talked to the media since Brian Flores lured Gailey out of retirement, leaving everyone to guess at what the Dolphins will look like.

Gailey, though, coached Ryan Fitzpatrick with the Bills and the Jets, which at least makes it an educated guess.

“I would venture, let’s look at old film,” Dolphins quarterback Jake Rudock said, via Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald. “That’s the best way to get a grasp for it.”

Fitzpatrick’s most successful season came with Gailey as the offensive coordinator with the Jets in 2015 when he threw for 3,905 yards and 31 touchdowns. The Jets finished 10th in total offense and 11th in scoring that season.

“I know that Fitz loves [Gailey], so that’s good enough for me,” said Rudock, who spent last season on the team’s practice squad.

Fitzpatrick has committed to a 16th season, with the Dolphins expected to draft a quarterback whom the veteran quarterback can groom to replace him eventually.

  1. That was 5 years ago!! Every year theirs change upon change in offensive and defensive schemes. Don’t forget Fitzpatrick is also 5 years older. If Flores was going to hire a late 60 year old coach he should have hired Wade Phillips as his defensive coordinator. At least he has been coaching, not a guy who hasn’t coached in 5 years.

  2. Anyone wonder what Rosen thinks about Gailey? Does anyone care what Rosen thinks about Gailey?
    Rosen could be the first first round QB in the XFL next season.

    And Rosen should be the first first round QB in the XFL next season. Rosen was terrible in Maimi…reminded me of Brandon Weeden who was terrible with Browns. This XFL thing might be what Rosen needs–he’s from a wealthy family and grew up feeling entitled, kinda affluenza, without the criminal record. So maybe Rosen needs a dose of reality for once (any draft pick who says the teams thst drafted ahead of him and didn’t pick him would regret it needs a dose of reality!)

    Yea like that Aaron Rodgers dude. What a bum.

  5. This is like throwing away a brand new DeWalt Cordless Lithium Ion drill for a Amish cork screw hand drill from the 1940’s. Sure they had their use at their time… but newer is always more efficient.

    How do you know this? Have you met him? Have you talked to him or his friends or family? Are you an employee with the Dolphins or even the Cardinals or UCLA? You are getting rehashed nonsense from the limited media. What we do know as facts: He had the highest ratings for pass accuracy in his class, he has limited mobility as a pocket passer and spent time with a medium to bad team and really bad team. The only verbal criticism of him was that he does not know how to call protections from the line. He never had to do this. It was like Tannehill in the early days with the putrid OLine and then he gets a play called and HAS to run it without protection shifts or audibles. He was a sitting duck. Fitzpatrick improvised the whole season based on veteran savvy (and admirable guts). Rosen costs nothing to keep and really has not much trade value until he gets more game experience.

  7. I expect the Dolphins offense to look the same next season. If they dont add good players on the OL the running game will be nonexistent once again. Gailey can only call the plays and draw them up. He cant block for them too. Fitzmagic will continue to be himself and throw 50/50 balls to his tall ears. Gailey will draw up plays for the smaller wrs to get them involved. I expect this offense to pretty much be the same unless they can somehow get a running game by improving the OL and finding a good rb. Only thing for sure to change is the play calling. New guy=new play calling
