Joe Philbin is Out

Joe Philbin is out as Dolphins head coach.

I believe the man is fortunate, because the Dolphins aren’t very well run from an organizational standpoint. They bring back Ryan Tannehill for $96M, even though he’s only shown signs of becoming a “franchise quarterback” in the eyes of NFL insiders. Sorry but I’m not buying Ryan Tannehill as a leader of any sort. He’s got a hot wife, which seems to have won him some favor from the media. They bring in Suh, a great player for $60M guaranteed, but no great leader. They brought in Mike Wallace for $60M, found out he was a mistake, had a crap attitude and ship him off to Minnesota. If you bring in high profile guys who aren’t leaders, you get implosion when times get tough and that’s what the Dolphins have done. They wouldn’t win with even Big Bill Parcells in charge … in fact, they didn’t.  The Dolphins biggest problem was at offensive line, which their management didn’t work hard enough at rebuilding after the Incognito – Martin nonsense. Tannehill, even though they weren’t going anywhere fast with him, was taking an NFL-style beating behind those turnstiles.

So Joe Philbin, a decent guy (remember him from Hard Knocks?) is out at Miami. Good for him. He gets to watch a lot of football, get some time off from a high pressure job and he will get another shot as HC in the NFL. The firing reflects more upon Miami as a franchise than it does upon him.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
