Another No-Show by the Miami Dolphins

The no-show Miami Dolphins went bumbling and stumbled into Wembley Stadium against the NY Jets and left with more questions than answers. Again, the offense looked lethargic. Ryan Tannehill threw wild uncatchable passes in the face of the same blitz repeated continuously the entire game. The Dolphin offensive brain-trust was incapable of altering the protection to account for the CB blitz.

On defense a vaunted Miami defense line featuring Ndamukong Suh allowed Journeyman Ryan Fitzpatrick to slip away without a single sack. Journeyman running back Chris Ivory ran for more yards than any game in his career. The Dolphin defense had no answer for the running game and never found an alignment to pressure the quarterback.

The pathetic Miami Dolphin coaching staff was exposed for the fourth straight week, looking more incompetent in each game. Exasperated fans tuned out and went about enjoying their Sundays as the football game was over in the first ten minutes. Steven Ross showed no inclination to make changes after the game even though a team thought to possess many talented pieces once again did not perform for the coaching staff.

The wrath of the fans has turned from the inept coaches to the bungling ownership unfit to make decisions in the NFL. At what point, fans wonder, will the owner look at the collection of talent and understand the coaching staff has lost the team. Without making wholesale changes, Steven Ross is proving his ignorance in the game of professional football. The Miami Dolphins have become a toy he parades before his ultra-rich friends and clients while they laugh in his face.

There is no explanation of the regression at QB, other than the coaching staff is completely over its head. Ryan Tannehill went from promising franchise QB to looking worse than Ryan Fitzpatrick, Tyrod Taylor, Blake Bortles and Kirk Cousins. Miami has yet to play a top tier team. A fandom hoping for a 6-0 start prior to the season is now left with the distinctly possibility of not winning another game.

The ownership and coaching staff has again left a once proud franchise to wallow with the dregs of the league waiting for the first pick in the draft. It is completely shameful Miami's 2015 season is over in four weeks. It is inexcusable that nothing has been done to rectify the mistakes continuously compounding as the early season flounders on to the torture of the loyal fans.

Kevin Coyle has taken the 5th ranked defense in the NFL on a progressive decline to bottom of the league. Bill Lazor has been unable to make in-game adjustments to stop a blitz package that was run over and over again to the point of ridiculousness. Joe Philbin is completely over-matched and clueless at how to get his team prepared and emotionally ready for a football game.

Ryan Tannehill looks worse than his rookie season, never seeing the same blitz over and over. Never adjusting protections or identifying the CBs creeping into the box. With each horrendous overthrow the emboldened defense moves closer and closer to the line of scrimmage. Tannehill never gives his receivers a chance to catch a long pass as the onslaught continues. Tannehill was given a contract extension prior to the season leaving Miami fans to wonder at the wisdom of this decision.

It seems the ownership in Miami is completely clueless. Unable to select a coaching staff, unable to select a personnel department, willing to pay huge contracts to unproven players, spending absurd money on free agents, supporting a management and coaching staff unable to build a team through the draft.

Miami fans can no longer be expected to support this team. Though the true and loyal fans will face the disappointment with gritted teeth and shattered expectations, they will tune out.

The fans have had enough...

Banners will begin to fly, but there is no Ireland or Sporano to place in the cross hairs. The wrath belongs completely on the shoulders of the owner. The staff, from the coaches on down were the owner's choice. He can no longer blame Bill Parcells for his ineptitude. Steven Ross, this is an indictment against you. These are your people and they have failed and consequently Mr. Ross, so have you.

Enjoy your billion dollar toy.

Miami Dolphins vs Jets Week 4 Game Chat

Maybe the Dolphins will forget who they are in London and win a game.

Dolphins Sleep Walk Through Humiliating Home Loss

The Miami Dolphins hosted their first home game of the season and didn't bother to show-up for the seasons third straight week. Buffalo came to play while Miami would have had a better showing if they had simply stayed in bed while forfeiting the loss of 41 - 14. Visiting Buffalo converted 53% of their thirteen third down opportunities as the home team was able to exhale after third down plays just 30% of time.

Miami's (whats supposed to be) vaunted defense once again didn't touch the opposing quarterback all day and have just one sack for the season (week one). The Dolphins defense allowed yet another opponent to rush for a buck fifty plus while the Bills accrued a total of 428 net yards (half of that in the first half) as Miami's defense also didn't create a single turnover on the day. Once again, for the second consecutive week the Dolphin defense extended many a stalled Bills drive with untimely stupid penalties. Week one corner back hero Brice McCain was eaten alive for the second straight week, and second year safety Walt Aikens committed a second major error in as many weeks, while on this day no one Dolphin defensive player deserved to be wearing anything but their pajamas as they slept through the games entirety.

Though he was sacked just twice, Ryan Tannehill played from within a stampeding herd of Buffalo over the games entirety while the Bills jumped out to an early 14 point lead as their defense pinned their ears back for the rest of the day. Left tackle Brandon Albert was out with a hamstring and Miami's offensive line in the run and/or pass protection game is simply atrocious without him on the field or at less than 100% when he has been on the field three games into the season. Miami couldn't run and gave up on the run far too early while deciding to run effectively in the fourth quarter they managed to accumulate 102 rushing yards on 20 attempts, and 391 mostly garbage time total offensive yards for the game.

Tannehill threw what will suggest (in the box-score) to be three interceptions. After a punt return and Bills penalty with Miami down 14 - 0. On a first down play inside the Buffalo 40. Tannehill's first quarter "interception" came after he planted one in the gut of Jarvis Landry for a first down and as Landry pulled it from his mid-section he tip-drilled it to the opposition. The visitors turned that turnover into 3 more points to total 17. A second "interception" came with under two first half minutes to go as one of many Buffalo horns misplaced the ball from Tannehill's forward aiming firearm while a Bills defensive lineman returned it 43 yards for the pik-six 24 - 0 lead. The one interception that he can truly be blamed for came with less than a minute remaining though in that instance too, Tannehill was under heavy duress in a desperate end of the half attempt that the opposition turned into another three points.

Digital lighting at each end of the stadium spelt out a score of Visitors 27, Home 0 at halftime. With 5:40 remaining in the third quarter Ryan Tannehill hit Rishard Matthews on an 21 yard touchdown pass and converted the two point play for the Sno-Man 8 points on Miami's side of the board. The abused (via play-calling, offensive line & defense) quarterback connected with Matthews again late in the fourth quarter for a meaningless 46 yard touchdown on a 4th & 8 broken play, and the Dolphins couldn't even manage to connect on the extra one point attempt which left Miami with just 14 total points for the day.

Other Miami Dolphin Highlights.
1st quarter) Miami won the coin toss.
2nd quarter) They executed a brilliantly choreographed sprint into the halftime tunnel.
3rd quarter) Buffalo's Dan Carpenter missed a 54 yard field goal attempt.
4th quarter) Miami players and staff shook the hands of all the opposition as the Dolphins wiped the nights mucus from their eye's.

Thanks for the (non-required) open-minded read,
and we (kind'a) look forward to your angle of view : )) !!

One things for sure, this is the worst game Miami will be a part of this year!
They can't possibly attend a game in any worse condition! Note, "attend" was the word!
Surely, No one will survive another such running in quick sand type of nightmare!
Miami faces the Jets from London at 9AM EST next Sunday in a Nationally Televised game!
