I certainly didn't see this coming but after next weeks certain throttling by the Patriots, Miami will officially be in last place. A few things are also getting more clear.....the defense and offense are average on their best day. RT is going through a sophomore slump even with better weapons. It appears the RT to Wallace connection will not happen. Sad day.....we're back to being a .500 team at best . :angry:

Miami was always a .500 at best.

So curious...you almost sound happy with this? So what's your remedy? Fire the coaches? Ireland? ...if Miami is a .500 team and only 1 game better than last year's bunch....why is that?

I don't think anyone's expectations were for a .500 year. Especially after starting 3-0. I thought we were well on our way to double digit wins.

to start the season I'd say most were 9-7....I saw a few double digit and 7-9 predictions but not many. The point is, they're getting worse not better.

Happy? Naw. So many of you thought Miami was suddenly this wonderful team that was going to win & now that they are not, its everyone needs to be fired. This team is poorly coached.

I was not a huge fan of Philben & I believe with each passing week he is in over his head. He got the job because of Rodgers development when he was not responsible for it.

Some of you went into the season expecting way to much from Tannehill.

LOL, he is crowing because he thinks he might finally be right about something in his life.

Give him his moment, surely it won't last.

I don't know if you were ever in the military or played sports, but there are no excuses. You go into war/season expecting to win, high expectations for everyone. This crap that I've read regarding going 2-3 into the bye was BS, you want to go into the bye 5-0. There are no easy wins like some of the posters predicted. BTW, I'm sure most of us have high expecations for the Qb, again, no excuses.

Going to stay away from the war analogy, while talking sports.

Sure everyone would have liked to went into the bye with a 5-0 record. However, reality speaks to some & most know that while its a possibility was not a realistic possibility.

While it would have been great had Tannehill light up the NFL like Peyton is doing. Realistically no one should have expected him to and that is where those records came out. No one went into any game expecting Miami to lose. However, most knew before the season Miami was going to lose some games.

I agree there are no excuses, but there are reasons.

Neither do I. Especially if they improved themselves. I believe they did, but I also believe the coaching staff is at a loss as to how to use them. They never figured out how to use Bush.

Well as a true beleiver & as someone who was at todays game I am left scratching my head. I would hate to think that with finally drafting a QB in the first round last year and after trading up to the 3rd pick in this years draft plus all the spending in free agency we still have a lack of talent.

I was totally sucked in a 3-0.

Looks like we don't have the talent.

Might have something to do with GM. But hey, he's given us so many great years, I don't want to pile on the guy.

As I sit here and watch guys like Bush, Vickersin, Davis, Satele, Dansby, Burnett, Walden, Carpenter, and others make plays, it makes me think we're the 1970's Braves who we're the respective farm team for the rest of the league

Davis is ballin' tonight. He has absolutely shut down Demaryius Thomas.

Thomas hadn't done anything up until Davis got hurt a moment ago.

I still don't think much of Satele.

we're not losing because of lack of talent. We're losing because we are sloppy and lack poor execution. Poor play calling and poor situational football. The only area lacking talent is the offensive line.

Most of the teams that lost this week were just flat outcoached.

We still lack talent at DB and O-line ..... oh and we lack TE's and RB's who are reliable in pass pro.

Reminds me of all the extremes of opinion when the trade first goes down compared to how it starts to play out once the player is given time and properly acclimated.

So many people wouldn't have pissed on Davis if he were on fire. I never understood it.

EDIT: LOL .... vintage VD though. In his post-game interview he said all week long he prepared for Tom Brady.

:haha

That is an absolute compliment lol, honestly. I said even before the loss in New Orleans that the offensive line will lose us at least 5 games this season by itself, and no doubt contribute to all the rest. Tyson Clabo blew two games in a row for us now, he has completely sabotaged the past two games by himself.

I promised myself the 24 hour rule before commenting after this loss. I am basically at a loss for words because it is all negative, so for once, I am going to stow my own comments.

I can say I was extremely frustrated and if anyone has ever seen the movie "GroundHogs Day" with Bill Murray, that is how I feel watching the Miami Dolphins play.

It seems the same challenges and problems carry over unfixed from year to year. What a shame.

We expected improvement. After the first 3 games, our excitement was building. We can still make some waves this year, but as you said, it will start with the coaches. Philben doesn't have the gonads to put the heat on his coordinators.

Most of us were excited about the Philben hiring because we wanted the offense that Philben helped develop at Green Bay.

I think fans should not forget that Tannehill started only 2 seasons at QB in college. Before that he converted over from QB to WR. He needs help with better playcalling, and he needs better blocking to develop. I find it ridiculous that coaches and some fans are expecting him to carry the team. He isn't there just yet, but we see a lot of potential that he can possibly be that quarterback.

I said it when many here wanted him hired. He didn't run the offense and the system belonged to Mike Mcarthy. His contribution was to help develop the game plan during the week.

What does that even mean? Did he look at the other team's weaknesses on defense and tell Mcarthy to exploit them?

"Hey Mike, they are ranked 31st against the pass and their two starting CBs are injured. Let's throw on them".

I like Philbin's no nonsense approach, but he is a stubborn man and needs to become more flexible quickly to be successful.

Well said Rich. Philbin has some good attributes as head coach and far for me to know exactly what is being said today behind closed doors and what kind of Kahuna's Philbin has but I sure hope he decides to step on Sherman more.

The play calling is baffling at times and even worse when us peanut gallery fans even know what is coming and what won't work that amazingly keeps being utilized over and over and in the wrong set of situations.
