Pat's Crush Phins In 2nd Half

For those of you who still think that Joe Philbin has what it takes to be an NFL head coach and should stick around for another year, this game against New England is a perfect example of why I feel he should be gone. The Dolphins clearly outplayed New England in the first half despite being down by 1 point. A couple of mistakes led to the Pat's 2 TD's. A great catch in the endzone by Mike Wallace in the final seconds of the first half brought the Phins to within 1 point and Miami had all the momentum heading into the second half.

That second half was an absolute disaster. New England came out firing and put up 27 unanswered points. The Dolphins barely put up a fight. No answer to stop Brady, no answer to stop Gronkowski. Nothing. The Dolphins were flatter than a pancake. This was on the coaches. They had nothing to counter what New England was doing.

According to CBS Sports, Miami is not OFFICIALLY eliminated, but a bunch of good teams would have to lose their final two games for Miami to slip in.

I hear progress in being made, but what I see is Miami losing two straight games with the playoffs in their grasp for the second year in a row. That is not progress, no matter what they do in the final two games. If you want to be a playoff team, you need to beat playoff contenders and Miami has failed to do that these past two weeks. I don't think Phibin deserves to keep his job by beating up on two patsies at home with nothing on line.
