I’m the kind of guy that prefers a local sports broadcast over the national option. I want to hear Dolphins, Heat… if there’s a national story that’s important, the local guys can give me that too. At 10 AM the John Renshaw show gave me all I needed and more. Local sports with a passionate take. Renshaw’s connection with listeners, from social media to hosted watch parties, had grown quicker than anyone expected… And that’s with him going against known commodity in Colin Cowherd and FM stereo (let’s face it, you’re cutting out a huge piece of potential audience)
So Renshaw’s gone and I’m sure he will land on his feet… there’s a wide ocean of sports out there and I will look to tune in when he’s on the air again.
WQAMprojected line up
Mornings Joe Rose Show.
Mid-days Alex Donno paired with ???
1-3 Kup and Crowder show
Evenings Marc Hochman
Marc Hochman has been rumored join WQAMafter the no compete clause in his contract runs out (rumored to be six months) We should start hearing Hochman around April on our drive home competing against his longtime friend and ex co-worker Dan Lebatard.
What does he bring to the table as a Head Coach? When he was the Packers Offensive Coordinator, it wasn’t his offense that Aaron Rogers used, he didn’t even call the plays! Mike McCarthy was the play caller. Some believed that Philbin was instrumental in the development of Matt Flynn (who was thought to be a good QB at the time) and Aaron Rodgers. Maybe he can do the same when we draft a young Quarterback, maybe he can turn Tannehill into Aaron Rogers 2.0…
Then we find out that Philbin had nothing to do with Rogers’ development. It was the Quarterbacks Coach at Green Bay that developed Aaron Rogers and Matt Flynn. It feels like we were duped, all of us, including you Mr. Ross.
Philbin is not an offensive guru, he doesn’t play call, and he also doesn’t develop talent. His strength, according to Stephen Ross, is his attention to detail.
ATTENTION TO DETAIL? Philbin? The guy that had no idea his starting Left Tackle was being bullied to the point that the player ran away from the team? The same coach who’s offense tells the opposing team if the play that’s about to be run is either a pass or run play depending on weather Tannehill says GO or GO-GO.
Surely this cannot be his best quality, this is proven by his own admission of not knowing what’s going on in his locker room. The truth is Philbin adds nothing as a Head Coach. He’s not an offensive genius like Sean Payton and Chip Kelley. He’s not a players coach like Rex or Dungy. He’s not even a “young-project” coach like Jason Garrett. Philbin adds nothing to the table. It may be time for Stephen Ross to look for a Head Coach with some experience and doesn’t have to learn on the job.
