Brian Daboll was Chad Pennington's quarterbacks coach with the Jets in 2007. And although Pennington had been in the league for seven years before hooking up with Daboll, Chad still attributes most of his football knowledge to the tutelage of Brian Daboll :
"The year I spent with him (Daboll), I just learned so much about how defenses attack offenses, and all of the nuances of coverage that I didn't understand before. He made me a better quarterback - why we are running certain plays, and why we were attacking certain coverages the way we were."
Brian Daboll talking at his introductory press conference as the Miami Dolphins new offensive coordinator about how he plans to work with Chad Henne:
"This is a quarterback-friendly system, where the quarterback is going to be able to make a lot of adjustments at the line of scrimmage. I'm going to take an active role in being with him in the meetings and getting him to develop the way I think he can."
From what I've read about Matt Cassel's work ethic and intelligence, this may work out to be a good match. The jury is still out on all involved but I'm anxious to see what can be produced from this new dynamic duo.
