Eric Studesville: Collaboration with Dolphins offensive coaches hasn’t been an issue

The Dolphins offense has failed to impress through the first four weeks of the season, but head coach Brian Flores said on Monday that the team will not be making any wholesale changes in order to get things moving in the right direction.

That means they will continue with Eric Studesville and George Godsey as co-offensive coordinators. Flores said he likes “the system we have in place,” which also includes input from quarterbacks coach Charlie Frye and others on the staff into what the team should be doing offensively.

Both coordinators spoke to reporters on Tuesday and both men said things have to get better while noting that there’s a lot of football to be played this season. Studesville also said that the collaborative approach has not been problematic.

“That part of it hasn’t been an issue,” Studesville said, via Joe Schad of the Palm Peach Post. “It’s more execution and doing things of what we’re calling.”

Godsey said “the bottom line” is that the Dolphins have to improve their production, which is correct but easier said than done based on how the unit has looked through four games.

  1. The Dolphins offense is in complete shambles only 4 games into the season and these clueless coaches think they can fool the public, another house cleaning coming soon in the MIA.
    The problem is the owner who hires those in charge will remain.

    The Dolphins are the Detroit Lions of the AFC, only difference is the Lions have an NFL QB.

  2. This is mostly an OL and coaching issue. They were decent last year. The fact the offense has regressed so badly is nuts. The defense hasn’t helped, either…

  3. Who the heck do these coaches think their speaking to, 5 year olds??!!
    Someone needs to explain to Flores the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results.

    That only gets you fired in the NFL.
    After the offensive coaches do a press conference today, we learned we have 3 “offensive coordinators”. Time to clean house before it gets even worse, CHARLIE FRY WAS AN AWFUL QB, WHAT MAKES THEM THINK HE SHOULD CALL PLAYS!!!!!!!

  4. So the guy who is a big part of the problem….says there isn’t a problem? This team has taken a huge step backwards offensively this year and I really don’t think this is about talent. The coaching and game planning is some of the worst I have seen

  5. Nice way to throw your players under the bus. Dolphins are a disgusting mess as usual. IT’S NOT WORKING!!!!!!

  6. Maybe Tua isn’t the problem after all, because it seems to be a coaching and OL issue.

  7. Eric Studesville just defined for us the problem. Denial, Denial and more Denial. No one wants to admit their not good enough. If one does not get a positive result how can one like the system. “The bottom line the Dolphins have to improve the production”, Well when a speed rusher can’t be blocked by an offensive tackle due to lack of agility perhaps that’s a personnel issue. What about calling more screens or being more creative with screens. I’m sorry the coaches do not have the answers and so the very good HC and defensive coach Brian Flores just believes in them until he gets fired! The Dolphins should rebuild their entire offensive line with the draft capital they have. Any quarterback will not have the time to be productive with the current offensive line.

  8. Too many soldiers when they need a General. Somebody has to have the singular vision of what the team is offensively. Everyone else can have input but it has to be in support of moving the team in the direction of that singular vision.

  9. Brian Flores said on Monday that the team will not be making any wholesale changes in order to get things moving in the right direction.

    In other words “we’re going to keep doing the same things and expect a different result”!

  10. Someone needs to explain to Flores the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results.

    Not true. If that were the case, teams wouldn’t practice.

  11. Really?? The collaboration hasn’t been an issue? If the roster improves yet the product on the field regresses who’s fault is that? Our coaching and gameplan are near the bottom of league, if not dead last. Our best offensive player is our kicker. Parker and Waddle are the only tradable players on offense. Our team is not only void of superstar talent, but also void of good coaching. More media attention needs to be given to both Flores and Griers warming seats.

  12. “The problem is the execution of what were calling”. Thats a sure fire way to piss on your players. Also that indicates the GM is not giving them good enough players. (Which I agree with). If your team is getting embarrassed throwing the ball for 2 yards every play, then maybe DEMAND the players throw the ball deeper. And if sacks and INTs are the result, at least everyone else OUTSIDE of the building knows your actively trying to win a freakin game. Even the game we won was pathetic offensively. We havent seen a single good game yet.

  13. I am not crazy about the offensive co-ordinators. However many there are. There have been a few mistakes in assigning people to positions. Hunt should be a RT not a guard. Eichenberg is a natural left tackle and should have been kept there. Gaskins should be the main back since he is a lot better than Brown.
    But let’s not forget that besides all that Miami is playing with a backup QB, I saw an All-22 showing Waddle wide open against a zone and right in front of Brissett who had a clean pocket. Wingfield said that Waddle was open throughout the game but got only three tackles all short.
    Brissett is doing the best he can. But he took too long too make decisions and that was a big factor why the team never got going until the fourth quarter.

  14. I could of sworn that during the summer fins fans were going crazy saying how good the dolphins looked in practice. Reason I bring it up is because Grier has been terrible for years and so is Flores. Tua could have an all pro oline and Tua would still be a marginal QB at best. Fins fans are still divided on how bad the team really is meaning that in the end very little will be done to fix this dumpster fire because management knows those novice fins fans will support anything. Ross, Flores, Grier, ALL CLUELESS!!! Tua still has not played a season worth of games and at this rate it may take Tua 3 seasons just to play 17 games. You can not win with a brittle QB. Passing on Justin Herbert and other players in the draft is the easiest way to get fired yet Grier is still employed. Tannebaum and Hickey were way better and that is saying a bunch.

  15. So you still think Tua was the problem with this offense? Tua bashers have been awfully quiet these last three weeks.
