And play their fourth bad game in a row.
Whatever the case, it appears we may have a decision as early as Monday about the future of the 50-year-old franchise. None of his plans have panned out this season.
As for that Tuesday practice, you can bet a lot of banged-up players will be sitting out, recuperating from a win over the Dolphins that took a physical toll.
Miami quarterback Ryan Tannehill did not have a stellar game.
“We talk during the week all the time”, Philbin said.
Brandon Marshall did everything he could Sunday except get into the end zone. The defense has been moribund, producing just one sack thus far through four games. This is a serious coaching flaw that continues to expose Tannehill’s inadequacies. “I was on the field in fourth quarter, watching the guys compete out there”.
A 6ft 4ins, 320lb force of nature, Suh had wreaked havoc on opposing offenses over the last five seasons in Detroit, but his impact in Miami so far has been minimal. He is doing what the Dolphins expected him to do.
Both teams have byes next week. There is no reason for the Dolphins not to be using defensive stunts or linebacker blitzes. The Jets’ offensive formula is basic and lethal when done right. Miami will play at Tennessee. The corners are suffering because the line can’t put pressure on the quarterback.
A Mexican wave then started to swirl around Wembley midway through the third quarter as the fans tried to find other ways of entertaining themselves. This adjustment allowed Walt Aikens to break up a critical third down pass from Ryan Fitzpatrick to Devin Smithwhich helped the Dolphins hold the Jets to a field goal on the drive. For a team who just finished with an 8-8 record, it might be hard to believe, but at this point that’s all the Dolphins can rely on is belief. No consistency what so ever. He’s probably one of the best backs in the league.
This team can not figure out how to move the chains consistently enough to boast a running game. Once the run is established, Chan Gailey needs to mix up the play calling.
Is it any wonder the Dolphins play like a loosely affiliated talent collective rather than a team? Joe Philbin’s squad have now lost three consecutive games after defeating Washington in the season opener, 17-10. When the Dolphins get into third and long, they call plays that will net only a couple of yards. They may as well punt on third down instead. The 0-12 showing on Sunday was part of a continuing trend. However, he did pull down seven catches for 128 yards.
Surviving December collapses defined the Joe Philbin era in Miami. But head coach Joe Philbin told reporters he’s not anxious about his job, and that defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle is still the DC. Jarvis Landry was an outstanding rookie in 2014. Eric Decker had 46 reception yards and a touchdown. His run game and defense did the rest. But the owner didn’t expect to get blown out, so he brought a few influential friends to England to show off his team.
Having been dominated in the opening stages, Miami rallied late on and had a touchdown disallowed before Darrelle Revis and Marcus Williams made two brilliant interceptions in the endzone with just minutes remaining. The surprising Atlanta Falcons didn’t need him.
So, this is not all on Philbin.
