NYF, when a quality team struggles to that extent, they lose by 14-20. Against a team as bad as the Titans, probably 10-14. Decent teams don't lose to anybody by 34 under *any* circumstances. The Giants for example played as badly as they possibly can and still *only* lost by 18 to the Bengals.
Maybe if Coyle had better players he wouldn't need to have them play so far off the receivers. Maybe if anybody in the receiving corps was an actual scorer Tannehill would have more TD passes.
It was universally agreed that Philbin was doing a good job the first 7-8 games, why is he so horrible now?
The Dolphins committed 7 penalties and 2 turnovers in the first half alone.
Philbin benched our best offensive weapon to prove a point, which was completely ridiculous.
We didn't take one shot down field, even though the safeties of the Titans weren't playing back.
When these things happen, I don't point my finger up at the press box.
When a team who is favored by 6 points loses by 34 points, it's a coaching issue, not a GM issue.
The team was completely and utterly unprepared to play.
I'm glad that the rest of the world is placing blame clearly where it belongs: on Joe Philbin. He's a first-time coach, so hopefully he learns something from this.
