The Miami Dolphins fired Chad O’Shea and he should return to the New England Patriots as the offensive coordinator.
Now not all of the blame can be placed on a single person as you see above, but the coaching of the unit needs to be questioned. Is Josh McDaniels as much of a genius as he is made out to be?

McDaniels’s play calling is questionable to say the least. He will call a screen or a halfback draw on a 3rd and 15 and have you screaming through the TV. Also, there is the fact that this was one of the most frustrating offensive seasons to watch.
The last time the Patriots finished outside the top 5 in team offense was a decade ago. New England was 7th this season.
With ‘Black Monday” long gone, the head coaching carousel is picking up. McDaniels is once again a hot commodity. He is rumored to be linked to the Cleveland Browns, Carolina Panthers, and New York Giants head coaching vacancies.
O’Shea left the Patriots this offseason to become the offensive coordinator for Brian Flores and the Miami Dolphins.
Now O’Shea didn’t have a lot of success but look at what he did against the Patriots in Week 17. He helped tear apart what was once considered as one of the best defenses in the NFL.
When he was in New England, O’Shea was the wide receivers coach. I think we can say he knows a lot about a good passing game.
Seeing that New England struggled so much in the passing game having O’Shea back in the fold would be perfect. The passing game seems to be the key to New England’s offense.
