To say that things are bad in Miami right now is an understatement. After Sunday's embarrassing loss at home to their division rival Buffalo Bills, the Miami Dolphins now reside in the cellar of the AFC East. While many thought they were the second most talented team behind the New England Patriots in the AFC East led by QB Ryan Tannehill and newly acquired defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, the Dolphins and their fan base are rightfully in full-panic mode.
Before you take your stance on this opinion, answer me this: how can a head coach, who can't get his team fired up and prepared for a home opener against a division rival, lead a team with championship aspirations?
Now, many would say that firing a coach this early in the season is a sign of resignation, but what other options do the Dolphins have? They have a few talented players, but everyone is underperforming and need a fire lit underneath them.
If the Jets trounce the Dolphins in London next week, many think that Philbin won't be accompanying the team on their long trip back to Florida. Surely, he won't be here when the Patriots set their sites on embarrassing another AFC East opponent, right?
