The Dolphins should sign Cutler over Kaepernick
The Dolphins are in the market for a starting quarterback after Ryan Tannehill went down with a non-contact knee injury yesterday and appears to be headed for season ending knee surgery, and within 5 minutes of the injury being reported, Colin Kaepernick supporters were out in full force, lobbying for Miami to sign Kaep.
Outrage ensued later in the day when early reports mentioned that Miami might have interest in semi-retired quarterback-turned-broadcaster Jay Cutler over Kaepernick. Today in The Herd, Colin said that Miami signing Cutler would make more sense from a football standpoint.
The primary reason is that Cutler had one of his best seasons with Gase as the OC in Chicago and could step in and execute his system. Considering the season starts in a month, that’s kind of important. If the Dolphins do decide to sign Cutler over Kaep they don’t need to apologize for it.
Tennessee’s Butch Jones on the hottest hot seat to start the season
A recent article listed college football coaches who are on the hot seat to begin the season, and ranked UCLA’s Jim Mora as the coach most likely to be fired first.
Colin thinks Mora may be in some trouble, but in his opinion, no coach will begin the year on a hotter seat than Butch Jones at Tennessee. While Jones had to play some serious catch-up after the failed tenures of Lane Kiffin and Derek Dooley, he’s coming off back-to-back 4 loss seasons and has never won more than 9 games since taking over in 2013.
Even though Tennessee has been down since Philip Fulmer was fired, the fan base won’t settle for anything less than re-emerging as a national title contender, and they’re running out of patience with Jones. If he starts slow, he’ll be the first coach to be shown the door in 2017.
