It’s time for a major change in the Miami Dolphins organization, a major change that should see each and every coach not be in the building tomorrow morning.
What was displayed by the Miami Dolphins football team in their 22-19 loss to the winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers was absolutely disgraceful, especially with a team that had major playoff hopes to start the season.
Those hopes are now long gone as the team has fallen to 4-5 on the year after starting off 3-0. They are in the middle of a bizarre situation featuring offensive linemen Jonathan Martin and Richie Incognito, and it appears the coaching staff is at a loss.
While the off-field issues might be a distraction, there is no excuse for the play calling and personnel packages being put on the field in the games.
It is very apparent that the most noticeable weakness on this team is the offensive line, yet offensive coordinator Mike Sherman does nothing to help out his young quarterback Ryan Tannehill in terms of play calling.
The running game is non-existent for the Dolphins, as they managed only two rushing yards on the night … two rushing yards. That is not a typo.
It’s no better on the defensive side of the ball, as the team was also not able to stop the run game of the Bucs even though star running back Doug Martin wasn’t playing.
There were numerous times where star defensive end Cameron Wake was on the sideline in key situations for no apparent reason, as well as rookie first-round pick Dion Jordan, who continues to not be used effectively.
These kind of personnel blunders mixed in with atrocious play calling on both sides of the ball and topped off with the circus that has become the Dolphins football team all signal that changes needed to be made.
The Dolphins have great players on their roster and there is no denying that. Tannehill can be a great NFL quarterback if he is given the chance to develop. There are big name players on both sides of the ball and it has the looks of a playoff team.
The problem is the coaching staff. Joe Philbin has lost control of this squad and it’s time for a fresh face and new style in Miami before things get really ugly.
