  • Dolphins Coaching Changes If They Lose to Jets

    From Bleacher Report:
    Dolphins face crucial game against Jets Sunday00:00/02:02
    The Miami Dolphins are considering shaking up their coaching staff if the team loses to the New York Jets this weekend in London, multiple sources have confirmed to NFL Media.

    "If the team loses three in a row, don't be shocked if someone on that coaching staff gets fired," one well-placed source said.


    A season that began with optimism in Miami has quickly become disappointing as we near the quarter-point. Multiple sources inside and around the franchise indicate there is widespread frustration among the players with certain members of the coaching staff. A meaningful portion of that discontent stems from -- what some players believe to be -- flawed offensive and defensive play-calling.

    One team source said "everyone understands" the coaches are the issue and aren't putting the team in a position to win.

    As a result of those frustrations and a host of others -- including the length and difficulty of practices -- multiple sources said the coaching staff is at risk of losing the locker room if Miami loses in London.

    "We've been going out there, and practicing our (tails) off every day, but as players, we're tired of being embarrassed," said one member of the Dolphins. "If we get beat in Europe, (players) are going to throw in the towel. It isn't the players. We have all the talent in the world."

    After an offseason that saw the Dolphins add a number of players through free agency and the draft -- such as defensive tackles Ndamukong Suh and Jordan Phillips (second-round pick), wide receivers Kenny Stills and DeVante Parker (first-round pick), and tight end Jordan Cameron -- team owner Stephen Ross made it abundantly clear during numerous interviews that he expected his franchise to make the playoffs for the first time since 2008.

    "There has to be improvement," Ross said in March after adding an extra year to head coach Joe Philbin's contract.

    While Philbin is revered by those who know him well, his 24-27 record in three-plus seasons has exposed him and his staff to scrutiny. Despite being on the brink of making the postseason in 2013 and 2014, Miami missed the playoffs each time.

    The Dolphins opened this season with a 17-10 win at Washington, but they have since lost consecutive games to the Jaguars and had a 41-14 loss to the Bills.

    "(Ross) is a remarkably loyal person," said one source who knows the Dolphins' owner. "But I don't think that loyalty is limitless."

    Yeah, he was on Total Access this morning and said the same thing. Said it was a good source from within the organization that if Miami loses changes will be made and no one on the staff is safe.

      while I think Philbin should go. nothing like the players planning on quitting before the game has been played. I see there are still players from the QUITFINS from a few years ago. Oh how sweet. FU dirtbag players. We need to get rid of everything including all the players like a brand new franchise. I' so pissed and sick of it all

        I appreciate the fact that the players don't accept losing just to collect their paychecks. They are applying internal leverage while we are applying external leverage to see this situation not be allowed to continue. I want players who take pride in their performance and demand results. Holding themselves and ALL others accountable, including their coaches, GMs and owners.

          I'll believe it when i see it...Probably'll get their asses handed to 'em by another divisional opponent with no difference other than the continent and they'll fire the assistant laundry guy because they didn't think their uniforms were white enough...

              JHMO but I still don't think Philbin gets the axe. They'll probably fire Coyle but I see Philbin staying on.

              Yeah, I am with you here. To be honest I don't there is anyone (including Philbin) qualified to even be an interim HC. Fire Coyle and ride with Philbin to the end of the season unless they thank he is handcuffing Lazor's offense.

            Any truth to the rumor that Philbins plane ticket is One-Way?!

              Now that's funny! May lead England to declare war on Miami, not the whole US, just Miami.

            the only way I think he gets axed is if he refuses to fire Coyle

              Wake and OV no sacks! Suh 7 tackles and a secondary that can't tackle.. I would of fired Coyle after the Jags game... You're probably right.. Then I would of fired myself after sitting the only guy that made a sack...SMH

              Agreed. As I just said to Ricky, I think Coyle gets the axe but I don't think Philbin is going anywhere yet.

          • #9
            I too think Coyle will get the axe if we lose. I (unfortunately) expect to be stuck with Phailbin until the end of the year.

              Unfortunately, you are probably right, which means 4th place in the division is OURS!

          • #10
            Philbin is gone if we lose.
            Can we sign this guy?

              I hope so - but I only see that happening if it is an utter embarrassment.

              He SHOULD have been gone 9 months ago, along with Coyle!
              As much as this NEEDS to happen, it probably will not...

            A "blowout" loss "Could" cost philbin his job. So in other words we could lose the game and Philbin could still be here. This sucks.
            While it takes two to have an argument, it only takes one to walk away.

              Maybe we could talk England into keeping Philbin, Coyle and Lazor if we throw in the original 13 colonies........

                I am not completely soured on Lazor. There are things in the Offensive scheme that I like - it's just difficult to do much of anything with the train wreck of an Offensive Line we have. I just hope when Albert comes back he makes a real difference....and as the season progresses the Guard play improves to "adequate".

              I live in one so NO and we would have to throw in some more because of interest. It's always the darn interest.

                  It seems OBVIOUS that the staff has LOST the players respect, IF they ever had it... Tannehill simply is NOT as bad a passer as he has shown in the last two 1st qtrs he has played... The defense doesn't even show up until their backs are on the goal line, and then they aren't showing MUCH there.
                  The HC and both coordinators could be fired at halftime, and we probably wouldn't see much (if any) decline in performance...
