  • I Have to Say It...Disappointed in Dantallica

    I said this in the game thread, and in my article. But I just have to rant a little. What the hell happened to Campbell tonight? I mean he truly looked lost. Like the moment was too big. It showed him dozens of times on the sidelines. No interaction with players and coaches. No vocalization. No emotion. He just was leaned over with hands on his knees and with glassy eyes. Like he was watching a football game not coaching it. What made him Danimal was his fire and I swear I didn't even see him talk once into his head set. Wow...it was such a disappointment. I hope he finds himself because I would like him to have this job. But tonight it seemed he and the players conceded defeat before they even took the field. Wow...

    Yeah, he seemed a bit lost throughout the game... Not sure if he's anything more then a interim HC.

      Perhaps he was channeling his inner-Philbin!

        Seriously though, did we really think he'd have all the answers 3 games into a head coaching position he basically has no real experience for & is learning on the fly?? Also, i'm sure it doesn't help that it's against a currently undefeated New England team in their own backyard (where they almost never lose, no matter who the opponent) on primetime no less...

        Yes, i'd say the moment was too big for him, just as it was too big for the entire team..Not sure the legendary Vince Lombardi would've been able to get our 'Not ready for Primetime Players' ready last night!

          After sleeping on the ass whooping, it was just too much to expect a win last night. Belacheat did his usual and exposed every weakness we have. And we got more than a few. Next week against the Bills is a must win and a much more winnable game. Also we are not the only team the Pats have dismantled this year and looks like we won't be the last for them.

            I think Dan over-thought this game. It was a toss up on whether to go with the offense to open or go defense. He seemed to channel his inner Joe when he decided to trot the defense out to face the hottest offense in the NFL at home. I understand wanting the ball to start the 2nd half, but damn, don't give the pats extra opps to get on top of you at the start of the game.

            Once the pats easily stacked up Suh with Double-teams and ran down the field, it was apparent we were in trouble and in for a shoot-out. Then on our very first series on offense, we lost James and couldn't run at all.

            In reflection, the game was over just that quick. Losing James, Parker, and then Wake, was just devastating to morale and probably the rest of the season. We'll win a few more games, but we're done. 6-10 record is highly likely.

              Better than Watching Philbins Deer look. He sounded better to at the post interview instead of Philbins rhetoric.
              The deeper the roots, the higher the reach.

                Not throwing in the towel on him yet, as many coaches with much more experience than Dan have been out coached by Billy boy. I was disappointed in the lack of fire from the offense. I thought the defense played well enough to win if the offense could have had any answers and not turn the ball over especially on their side of the field.

                  Agreed... few have gone into Foxborough the past decade and came out winners. Dan looked a bit shell-shocked after the defense gave up that opening TD and the Offense failed to sustain a score on it's opening drive as well.

                I didn't expect to win but I at least hoped they would make a game out of it. Let's see how Dan does in getting them ready for the next game. I was disappointed that he didn't do much to encourage his team when they were down though. They need encouragement even more when they are playing bad.
                While it takes two to have an argument, it only takes one to walk away.

                    You can't put this beating on Campbell. Tannehill was absolute crap. The defense kept us in it for as long as possible. If Tannehill would have played good enough to sustain more then one drive all night, it would have been a close game. We'd still have Wake too, because the defense wouldn't have had to play 85% of the game for us.

                    Secondly, they aren't the Super Bowl champions for nothing. Still, our defense came to play. You don't win a game throwing two interceptions(should have been more), no running game, etc.

                      He's a tight ends coach that was promoted to Interim Head Coach in record time. He might have looked lost because he was seeing the game from a different perspective, as a head coach, and what he was witnessing out on that field by the Patriots was something he hasn't seen before since his last two opponents that he faced as a head coach were pretty simple offenses. In his defense, many coaches with most more experience then him look pretty confused when playing the Patriots. I don't put the blame on Coach Campbell at all. I think he is doing a really good job considering he doesn't have any experience at his current job and his third week into his job he is being tasked with trying to defeat a team that no other coach has done so far this year, with a bunch of players he did not draft or sign, he got stuck with.

                      Let's face it, the Dolphins still have the same coaches they had in the beginning of this season and they all belong in the college ranks not the NFL. After this season this team needs to find some real NFL coaches and a real NFL quarterback who the team can reply on to put the game on his back.

                        I don't think they need a HC other than DC.
                        they need DC to put together the players he feels are up to his standards.
                        I can say that half this team does not live up to his standards.
                        the OC is a hand me down, the DC is running off some of what the old DC left.
                        a off season with Dan getting what he wants and next year will be a different story.
                        by the way ,I think your right about Tannehill,he is a backup quality qb,not a franchise qb
                        they need to find a qb that can perform when under stress and not check down every play or can elude a pass rusher and not just crumble into a pile of jello!

                        I am terrified of promoting from within because the Dolphins still have a bunch of college coaches that Sherman brought into Miami who weren't qualified then and after getting on the job training they have proved that they are better suited in the college ranks. We really need to gut this whole team. I admire what Campbell's trying to do and I think he might be a good head coach some day and I wish if the Dolphins could keep ONE coach from the current team it would be coach Campbell. I think it is time, once again, to start all over again with a totally new coaching staff, one that has no ties to Tannehill whatsoever. It IS time to move on from him because TanneHenne is NOT a starting caliber quarterback. The Dolphins would need a 2000 Ravens type defense to go anywhere with his limitations. He is too easy to defend playing inside a 13 yard box. Yep, his box used to be 20 yards but now it's down to 13 yards. Some QB's might be able to make that work but Tannehill and this coaching staff don't have the right plays to make that happen. Lazor is part of the problem too, he just isn't creative enough. Time to go back to the drawing board with a total rebuild.

                      As hard as it is for me to admit the fact is NE is heads and tails above 95% of the NFL. How they do it year in and year out with different players is beyond me, but they do. The other painful realization is that if we can't run the ball we can't win. And teams will figure it out very quickly that they have to stop the run and then tee off on Tannehill and our porous offensive line. Sadly we will probably have to watch an unbeaten NE team in the SB again this season. Ugh.. I'm drained of hope after two short weeks of thinking we had the roster to compete for a playoff spot. Sucks to be a phins fan. And we lose a great player to boot.

                        Agree... annoyingly Lazor gives up on the run too quickly. Miller the game with an 8 yard run. After we lost James, Lazor gave up on it and went back to what was failing us against the Bills and Jets.

                      I didn't expect the win. I was hoping for a closer game and if our Offense could have gotten anything going there is a good chance that we hold the pate to less than 30. The D was on the field to damn long. And then even when we did see a glimmer either somebody drops a pass, we get a stupid penalty or Miller trips over a blade of grass. The pats came to play and there confidence showed. We are just too young, inexperienced and not enough depth to compete with them.

                      The true test for DC is how he prepares the team for the bills

                        I thought we had a shot as long as we were healthy. Losing James sucked, but Matthews and Cameron were total disappointments last night.

                      Campbell was in over his head last night. Belichik and Brady recognized all of our defensive weaknesses (LBs in coverage, J Taylor, W Aikens) and totally exploited them. Our O line didn't hold up and Lazor had nothing other than the same old same old. That pistol formation will never beat Belichik again. As long as we keep blowing drafts (0 productivity from the 2015 draft) we can't expect to get better. Sure some of the players may help the new regime but they never seem to add to the continued growth of the current team and help us reach a winning mentality. Man for man the Patriots are better than us. Coach for coach the Patriots are better than us. Player for player they are smarter than us. The Dolphins could decide to keep Campbell at the helm and bring in a new DC and a new OC but, realistically, Tannenbaum is already waist deep in lining up a new staff for 2016.
