It was bad...I think even MadDog put his foot through a TV on that one.  He could have had the first down with a headfirst dive and not even get hit but instead he started the feet-first slide and was short of the first down.  If it was first or second down I could understand it but it was third down!


That would have been a huge momentum shift too, to get a first down on 3rd and 25 or whatever it was.

The whole game came down to that Tannehill run. You gotta go head first for that 1st down. The game was 14-7 and still within reach. They could've been in Jets territory putting together a nice drive. The momentum after that play changed on the dot. Changed the entire game.

How could you be down to the Jets, at home, with a playoff run on the line?

 

Miami should have dismantled this team from the start.

Yep that run was bad, gotta know where the first down marker is. The moment that made we want to put my foot through the TV though was the Geno TD where Wheeler go run over like the bitch he is. Wheeler couldn't tackle my mom. In any event, I want Philbin and Ireland canned, the last two games were a disaster. The coaching staff didn't have this team ready to play with the playoffs on the line- fireable offense when all you have to do is beat the Bills OR the Jets to get in. I don't think either Philbin or Ireland will be canned, but it does sound like Sherman is gone, which is good news at least. Tannehill had a bad game yesterday as did everyone else, although he was playing with a sleeve on his leg from what I heard. Last time he played with a sleeve last year, we endured the 34-7 Tennessee game. It obviously affects him. Still- no excuse for a bad performance. It will leave a bad taste in people's mouths (especially Tannehill haters like Daniel), but Tannehill had a good year overall. He's a good QB. He will get better. I'm worried about a lot of things with this team- the QB aint one of 'em (for once). Anyway, typical Fins. I expected them to piss it away. Its what they do. Now I get to turn my full attention to the Devils. Yaaaaay. :P

Sources are telling the AP that we should find out what happens to the Dolphin coaching staff today.  Expectations are that Mike Sherman and Jeff Ireland are in danger of losing their jobs, with Philbin tentatively expected to return for season #3.

 

My only thought is that I want Norv Turner at least interviewed as the new OC.  He's basically been shown the door in Cleveland, and I hope that will be our gain.  I want to see what he can do with the offense we have.

Sherman's being made the scape goat.  He's been shaky at times no doubt.  But still he had a crap offensive line to work with, and a QB that could not connect on a deep pass to an open Wallace to save his life (if Tannehill throws even 30 percent of those with sufficient accuracy this might be a playoff team). 

 

Unfortunately, I don't know what the answer is, other than to hit rock bottom and re-build yet again.

Maybe, maybe not. They brought in Tannehill's guys to help him along. Forget how many years he played QB in college, when you bring your coaches and offense to the NFL, you should be further along than Ryan is. Not saying he isn't going to be good or great, but this staff has not got him to where he should be with this clear advantage he had over other young QBs coming into the league.

Its hard to develop your quarterback when he's on his ass more then any other QB in the league....maybe some of that is on Tannehill since he doesn't feel it...get rid of the ball....or side step it...but when you're a young guy like that and it's coming from all over on you like that, I can see where the confidence would start to fade and you just mentally turtle

There's a pretty significant connection between being sacked out of your 5-step drop and being able to throw a deep ball.  If OL is not made a priority on this team this year then I'm going to be a very unhappy camper.

 

Someone's going to pay for the last two games, more or less, and that falls on coaching.  Regardless of the situation, you have to have your personnel ready to play to the best of their ability, and even if the OL gets overwhelmed to the point where passing is impossible (no, that's not an excuse for Tannehill, just stating the obvious about our OL). 

 

And even beyond that, speaking to the season as a whole, Miami's offense was 27th in total yards and 26th in points per game.  You can't average less than 20 PPG and 325 yards per game as an OC and expect to keep your job.  Some HC's don't survive that.

I completely agree with that, it's just not a coordinator's job to have the players ready to play.  That's the HC's job, which is why I think Sherman is being made the scape goat.

 

It also falls on the players though.  They're pros who have been playing the game their entire lives.  They should be able to motivate themselves. 

 

Which brings me back to another problem I have with Tannehill.  He just really does not seem to care all that much, to the point that he's completely aloof.  ("If I lose, not a big deal, I still get to go home to my smoking hot wife").  You look at the great QBs like Marino, Brady, Elway, Montana and Young, all were fierce competitors.  Before training camp, Tannehill didn't even know who the other teams in the division were.

Getting rid of philbin and Ireland would be a bad move. This franchise needs some continuity! Not to scrap it every other season

Don't be blind to the good free agents that were brought in.

So for the off season, our injured players return healthy. Gibson , Keller hopefully and Patterson

Fix the o-line , get a power back, another cb

You have Tannehill who I thoroughly respect.. but this is an offseason to start fresh for Miami, based on the turnover your roster's about to undergo. Miami's got tough decisions to make, in: Brent Grimes, Nolan Carroll, Chris Clemons, Tyson Clabo, John Jerry, Bryant McKinnie, Paul Soliai, Dustin Keller and Randy Starks, just to name a few. It's not like you have multiple franchise tags. The talent on your roster was such, that you should've at least won 10 games this season. Starks, Soliai, Grimes & Clemons are all Top 25 UFA's this offseason. --and I expect my Jets to go after them. Your 8-8 is very different than the Jets 8-8, namely because; you had the talent!
It's going to be very interesting to see how this summer unfolds in Miami.

Clabo, Jerry, and McKinney can hit the bricks, they suck. The o-line will be re-built through the draft and free agency. Soliai will probably resign, I expect Starks to walk. Grimes will be franchised if he isn't signed to a multi-year deal. Carroll may or may not be back, don't really know. I expect Wheeler to be cut after June 1 too, he's a joke. There are some decent run-stuffing LB's available in free agency.


Clemons- don't really know about him either.

Down goes Sherman. How often does the coordinator change, but keep the coach, actually work? Usually, the coach isn't far behind.
