It's hardly just Tannehill...your running game had 13 carries for 0 yards.  Your D allowed 150 yards rushing to a bunch of third-string backs.

"The Devils have high standards, that's the difference. We have a standard to live up to every year, and a couple of teams in our area don't have the standards we do." - Pat Burns

The New Jersey Devils win Stanley Cups everywhere:
-NHL record for most road wins in the playoffs - 10-1 in '95 and 10-2 in '00
-NHL record for most home wins in the playoffs - 12-1 in '03

The D gave up 20 points and got zinged by an awful pass interference call.

Tannehill was given several gifts against the worst team in football and couldn't top that.

It's a QB league as they say, and ours can't win squat.

Maybe having a better line in front of him would help

Up until that last series, his protection was more or less fine. Or it was good enough for him to win the game. A good QB does that. We don't have one.

In fairness to Tanny, his O-line was/still is terrible. No QB can perform with this problem. There is no running game and his receivers suck. Wallace is a One trick pony.

The O-line was good enough tonight, and it was good enough against Buffalo. It was also probably good enough against NE, but I couldn't watch that game.

The running game is no good because defenses don't fear the passing game.

And Tannehill would make a receiving corps that consists of Megatron, Jerry Rice and Randy Moss look like crap.

Did we watch the same game tonight Daniel? RT threw nearly 30 completions, for 220+.. and 2 TD passes. His only interception came on a hail-mary, otherwise no other picks, fumbles or turnovers whatsoever.

I'll give you the fact that his numbers weren't star-studded, but again.. THE GUY HAS ABSOLUTELY NO OFFENSIVE LINE! They ran for 2 yards the entire game! Who\Where did Tannehill get help from tonight??

The Dolphins are headed for a full rebuild. The GM and HC will be gone (and the Cowher to Miami rumors will ratchet up)

 

Tannehill may be part of it, he may not be. I think it's 50/50 at this point.

 

They need new backs, a tight end, and a full offensive line retooling top to bottom.

 

The defensive line is pretty darn good but you wonder how long they sustain since guys like Starks, Solail, and Wake have some age on them. Wake will be 32 in January.

He missed a wide open Mike Wallace, and couldn't put it in the end zone when given the ball on Tampa's 11. He could have easily thrown a couple of more picks had the Bucs not dropped the ball.

Bottom line is that he was given every opportunity to win a game against the worst team in football. He couldn't do it. And if you can't do that, what are you doing here.

With some people though, Tannehill can't get blamed for anything. They just have to believe that he's a franchise QB. And I get it. Despite my rantings, I actually feel a little optimism at the beginnigng of each game that he's finally going to show us something, and prove the a Skip Bayless's of the world wrong. Even when he manages to win a game, it's done in a style that's about as impressive as Gus Frerotte.

Yet another wasted Miami season. Hopefully they can at least play spoiler to the Jets when I go to the game at MetLife. And if Matt Moore's the QB, they just might manage to do that.

I doubt Cowher or any established coach takes the job. We'll probably end up with Wade Phillips.

When you give up the most sacks in the league you need to retune that o line. No qb can handle it. Wallace is only GOOD when he's open otherwise he's worthless

The yards-per-attempt were low (only 5.45). 

 

But yeah, Tannehill didn't get much help at all. 

 

All things considered Daniel, Tannehill IS showing improvement in his second year.  His numbers are going to better this season than last.  Granted, it's almost Sanchez-like, in that his second-year numbers were just about guaranteed to be better over his first, but he's probably going to finish with about 3800-3900 passing yards and 23 TD passes.  Not great in today's bloated QB stats NFL, but steps in the right direction.

 

Yeah, next season, you'd like to see significant progress (and he's not young for a second-year guy...already 25 years old), but for a guy with 25 NFL games under his belt, on a team that clearly has holes and now has this whole other mess to deal with, he's not really doing THAT bad.  Could be a lot worse.

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

I have a friend who is positive the Dolphins tipped every single play with the QB's cadence. As simple as "Go" being a run and "Go Go" being a pass.

If that's true, that falls on the coaching staff...they have to be aware of such things.

I've read about that too.  How much it matters from a nuts and bolts standpoint I can't tell you.  I mean, it seems so obvious that a coaching staff that managed to make it to the NFL would do something about it, if it effected the outcome.

The biggest mistake by far was getting rid of Brandon Marshall.  I couldn't tell you whether that was more of a Philbin or Ireland move, as I've heard both. 

 

If your passing game is going to be built around short to medium yard attempts, I don't see what Wallace adds to the equation.

It's kind of comical that the best Dolphins have looked the past 10 years is the 6-3 record in 2011 with Matt Moore leading the team. Very easily could finished 8-1. Sparano was not fired after the 0-7 start, but really got this team going in the last 9 games. I thought they were building something, but they went in a different direction with coach and QB.

Actually the best they've looked in the last 10 years was 2008 with Pennington when we won the division. Nothing that happened in 2011 after 0-7 means jack sh!t. All that did was cost us Luck.
