This should be an exciting day as Dolphin fans worldwide await two welcome pieces of news.
One, the firing of Joe Philbin should be inexorable.
Two, the excitement of who our new head coach will be should be filling all the comment boards and talk radio stations everywhere.
However, there is to be no excitement whatsoever for the Dolphins fans, and especially not their players.
In true Joe Philbin form, he lost a game to a terrible, last-place team. And in true Stephen Ross form, Philbin will be rewarded for this failure.
No, I don’t blame Philbin for the lack of defense and special teams today. But I do blame Philbin for his usual batch of incorrect and inconsistent decisions.
Philbin refused to go for it on 4th and one. He refused to go for it on fourth and two. But he did go for it on fourth and five.
Inconsistent? Without a doubt.
Incorrect? The final score answers that for you.
Philbin is simply an atrocious game manager. It began today with Philbin winning the toss and choosing to receive, which he shied away from all year long. Why choose today to be inconsistent? The man is inept, yet we’re stuck with him.
AND NOW WE LEAVE YOU WITH THE DOLPHINS’ FINAL SCORE OF 2014
