TE Coach Mularkey Given Play-calling Duties

                                  Unhappy Dolphins fans 

It appears that being 0-12 and calling all of the plays from the sidelines doesn’t quite agree with Miami Dolphins head coach Cam Cameron.  Since the Dolphins’ last game – a loss to the New York Jets last Sunday – the play calling was performed from up in the booth by tight ends coach Mike Mularkey. 

Previously, the play would go directly from Cameron to the quarterback.  Under the new system with Mularkey calling the plays, veteran quarterback Trent Green, who started the season’s first five games, relays the play to the microphone in the helmet of rookie starter John Beck.

Calling plays isn’t exactly new to Mularkey, as he served as offensive coordinator of the Pittsburgh Steelers from 2001-2003, and was the head coach of the Buffalo Bills for the 2004 season.  I think it is safe to say that the team’s poor overall performance and sometimes erratic clock management may have facilitated the change of play-calling techniques.
