Patriots blow out Dolphins 28-0

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- If you wondered how wide the gulf between the Dolphins and a playoff team is, now you know.

The Dolphins are seemingly an ocean apart from the Patriots. And today's 28-0 loss here is proof.

Joe Philbin's team was never really in it. Never really fought. Never really seemed capable of staying with New England.

The Patriots offense dominated in every imaginable category -- first downs, time of possession, passing yards, rushing yards.

The Patriots defense set a team single-game high for the season with six sacks. And after establishing that mark, they added a seventh sack on the very next play.

And not only did Miami get beat but it got beat up.

Richie Incognito (neck), Kevin Burnett (concussion), Anthony Fasano (concussion) and Dimitri Patterson (ankle) all left the game and did not return.

Doesn't matter, however. The Dolphins season is over.

Andrew,

Please remember that Parcell left 2 years ago and the story has not been written on some of his picks yet, especially these year's rookies. Also, some of the guys you mentioned were selected in the 6th and 7th round; hitting on any of those guys is rare. Here are some of his finds post Parcells:

Reshad Jones, Charles Clay, Ryan Tannehill, Mike Pouncey, Jonathen Martin, Lamar Miller. We still have to wait for some of the picks this year. Miller, Vernon, Martin, Tannehill, and Mathews will get better. In FA Matt Moore, Thigpen, and Lane were nice finds. This year he will focus on playmakers for the offense early on.

PHINS 78.......... WHY DON'T YOU ASK ARMANDO ,DONKEY AND LET CRAIG DEFEND HIMSELF ..........................

Just glad Dolphins cut loose Marshall and V. Davis ... all Davis did today was have two INTs to help Colts upset Texans... and I think Marshall had more total TDs for Bears than entire Dolphins offensive unit combined. But I forgot... Dolphins have luxury of having excess talent to dispose of in exchange for better "locker room character!"

The Fins mediocrity is due to the cumulative effect of mediocre talent evaluation (draft and FA picks) and just plain bad luck over the years.

Like picking a franchise LT over a franchise QB.

Now, if Ross won't move this Team and Coach from here, I will encourage him in everyway to move it. We don't like you kind here

If I can have 3 wished one would be to to punch Craig M square in his nose. Is there any blind homer more of a homer then him?? The scedule was a soft one and we went 7 and 9 and your excited about that. Lol The Canadian cold must of froze some of though brain cells of yours.

Nope, not a lie. Armando and I talk regularly over coffee in the morning. He said you're a fake. Told me you're not even an immigrant and the whole ME SO STUPID thing is just an act. Ask him yourself, he will be happy to tell you the same thing if you don't believe me. Go ahead fake person, write Armando and see what his response is.

I hope the major sports story coming out of the Miami Herald tomorrow states this: Jeff Ireland is shown his walking papers! And then there will be a parade outside of dolphins headquarters in Davie.

Craig,

I agree that Garner is terrible but he has been in the league for 5 years. Martin did well for a rookie this year and he will get stronger. I think that he is going to be very good. I do have to say that you have been one of the few that has advocated for Long to be resigned and I have to say that after today you are right. We need to find a way to keep Long.

Craig..

Please dont try and hide the fact that you like everything that is average on this team every year and your ignorance is bliss attitude is basically how you compose yourself every time you try to defend the problems miami has and that the've made progress this year by a one win difference in the standings column


They've lost to bad teams that have looked god awful compared to how miami has played this year and you think Irefiend will fix it in one offseason with his history here in miami regardless of their draft or cap situtaions....

You can act the part of an Ignorant fan but dont drag me down with your hopeless optimism....

Jeff fisher and Peyton manning were both right. The dolphins don't have any talent at all. Mr Ross fire Ireland tonight please

Cheers Phins78!

Also got your post from the last blog re:WRs. We'll talk about it more in the future when we have more time.

In no way am I making for Ireland but I think the expectations of what the fans expect him to do are completely unrealistic. A guy like Pioli looks like he's going to keep him job despite the team finishing 2-14 this year. To get rid of Ireland now would be the dumbest thing this franchise could ever do because it would also likely mean the end of Philbin and many of the coaches. If guys want us to be the Browns and Raiders, then this is a great recipe to that path.

"WHY DIDN'T YOU ASK ARMANDO ,IF I SIGN WITH OTHER NAMES ???????"

"Aloco"

I did bud, he told me I was right. I love how your English gets better as you get more upset. Priceless.

Why did Philbin not take RT out when this one was shaken up? He still expected to win the Game? Or wanted RT hurt? For $?

Phins 78...your post made no damn sense to me at all....please interpet??!!!

Phins78,

Really???????????????????????

What other names do I post under???????

LMFAO

Clue,

Any time bud. Ask Armando for my email address and we'll meet up. Bring it on kid....I'm laughing at you and your childish ways.

Make sure you don't hide this time....you chicken sh*t!

Let me know....I'll be right here.

2009 Henne 7 wins
2010 Henne 7 wins
2011 Moore 6 wins
2012 Tanne 7 wins

Kind of hoping the Fins brass just shuts up this off season and stops putting out the propaganda (Mr Ross...look up the definition). After years of "average" we get it...it's all about jersey and ticket sales...sorry guys/gals I can't help! See u in 2015 because this team is at least 3 years away from playoffs.

Awesome, so you're superphin too Aloco! NICE! You want me to let Craig fight his own battles but you won't let Superphin do the same?

Hmmmmmmmm, so either you are a phony person like Armando told me or you are a major hypocrite. Which is it "Aloco"?

PHINS.....POST ,WHAT ARMANDO SAID TO COMPLETE THE LIE,,,,,,,,,,,,

PRICELESS ,MY FOOT ......

Orlando,
The 20 departing FAs have to be replaced with the 10 draft picks before the skill players can be added.

Craig,

Don't need to be a fan of yours...

Just need to read the posts on this blog and have a memory...

Not that complicated.

Craig it's all good man. We will have a rationale and objective conversation about this in the near future. I'm sure we could both learn a thing or two about the other side of thinking. Knowledge is power! (That's why Aloco is so weak ;)

As I predicted after the draft, the colts were rewarded for tanking their season last year and the skins were rewarded for showing guts and taking RG3. Ironically even the rams showed more heart with fisher than we did. Anyone who now still supports Ireland is a complete idiot period. Anyone, literally anyone in the miami dade phone book would b an improvement. And that idiot Ross continues to focus on things that don't matter. Most currently the logo. What a bunch of losers. The sad thing is that I think that our second tier QB could have Horton us in the playoffs if Marshall and Ocho cinco were still on the roster. Please someone fire Ireland.

PHINS,IS A ROFFER ,WHO'S HAPPY TO DEFEND OTHER MALES .......

STRANGE ,FRIENDSHIP......

Orlando, Reshad Jones is not from post Parcells. Tannehill is not a find yet. Neither is Lamar miller. They haven't proven a thing. Your list is shrinking.

Ireland is indefensible not your fault. Would you rather have Tanny or Russell Wilson, be honest. We will see if some of these guys pan out.

Pouncey is great but he plays center, one thing a team doesn't need is a dominant center. Ireland would make a great interior line scout, he has no business being an NFL GM. When he screws up this pivotal offseason, don't forget I told you so.

Craig,

Pioli was considered gods gift to GMs. He could do no wrong with the patriots and we wanted him down here. How long has he been with the Chiefs now and he has the worst team in the NFL. The Chiefs are much worst than us. It is funny how guys like Tom Brady make GMs and coaches look good. The reputations of both Philbin and Ireland are in Tannehill's hands. I really feel that Ireland earned a new honeymoon period when the fins decided to start all over with an inexperienced rookie QB. It will be a short period this time but he should get a chance to see this through.

ALoco,

Why did Armando kick you off of the live blog today? what did you do? Could it have been that you tried to impersonate someone? Kris maybe?

What's with that bud?

Joe Philbin lost a son and after that happens there is all kinds of guilt flying around...

CRAIG M ,

HE DIDIN'T ,HE WAS UPSET,I WROTE A POSTE ,SAYING HE SUPPORTED OUR GARAGE MANAGER ALL THE WAY AND FL WRITERS ARE CORUPT ,,,,,,

i thought that tannehill has looked pretty good this year for the most part. the problem is that he has nobody that can get separation and make plays. i think that he is the future. for everybody that thinks that henne is better than tannehill...you are idiots. complete and udder idiots. just wait until the kid has some weapons. hes going to be awesome. hes never confused, hes hardly ever off target, and he seems poised in the pocket. he will be awesome. just give him some time. trent dilfer said that he will be the rock star of this draft class, and hes right.

Jeff fisher and Peyton manning were both right. The dolphins don't have any talent at all.

Posted by ; Mike

Awesome news! Fisher went to a team with more talent and posted the same record as Philbin and his talentless Dolphins? Philbin must be the next coming of Shula in that case! Woo hoo things are looking up!!!!!

Sure I'm disappointed as a fan to have missed the playoffs again, but I think coach Phil in and his staff have done a fabulous job with very little talent. Now we have 10 draft picks, and are 45 million dollars under the cap. I think the future looks bright!, not to mention we will get a new look that will represent a new start

its sad to see how the dolphins as an organization fails to draft good players and make bad desiciones like letting go of wes welker,as a fan i am very frustrated and the only thing i can do is cheer for another team so i wont suffer anymore.
julio garcia

Orlando, if you think Charles clay is a find, everything about your support of Irebum makes sense.

I can only hope that Criag M never has the support from any NFL owner to become an actual Gm for a football organization. 5-11 and 7-9 seasons will only have you promoted in the front office.

Can we stop make excuses about these overpaid average players. Miami doesn't need to resign any of these free agents. We already know what they bring to the table....mediocrity!

Well,this loss could have been Irelands also because of inferior Players..

THE LOVE BOYS;;;;;;

CRAIG M
PHINS 78
KRIS......

THEY ALL LOVE IRELAND.
THEY ALL LIERS ,,,,,,,,

The Miami Dolphins are si bad the their fans turn against each other looking who to blame for this mess hahahaha

BS Aloco....you were impersonating me..and GOT BUSTED.....PERIOD.....

Andrew,

You are making my point. It is too early to tell on the post Parcell picks. You have to give picks at least two years before you say that they are busts. No one thought that Jones would be a top tier safety, hence, he went in the fith round. That is why I don't bank too much on all these picks next year. I think that next year will be more about Martin, Miller, Vernon, Mathews, Tannehill, and even Egnew. Hopefully, we run into 1 or 2 picks next year that are solid contributors in their first year. Tannehill is the key to how good the fins will be next year and of course we have to sign or resign the right FAs.

Here's what he said Aloco.

" Dear Phins78, I have read your letter and would like to inform you that everything you said is absolutely 100% true. Aloco who posts in the Herald also posts under different names. I can not divulge those names because it would be a breach of trust but from reading your list I can see you have most of the names figured out. On another note, where would you like to meet for coffee tomorrow morning? I'm thinking we try a new spot, lets go to a strip club this time so when you grab the waitress' a%$ they don't kick us out! Hahaha Okay man, talk to you soon and God bless".

KRIS HAS A MIND OF A BROWN DONKEY,,,,

AMAZING...

There are no playmakers on either side of the ball. Ireland drafts a TE in the 3rd round who never sees the field because he can't block. It's not how many picks you have in the draft (10)but if you know how to use them another words pick good players. Jeff Ireland has 46 million dollars to spend this off season that scares the hell out of me.

I hope the perception that no one wants to sign here is gone. That's on Ross and Ireland.

Sporano's tenure with the dolphins and Jets proves he is a fraud as a coach of any type and shows you how clueless Parcells was in choosing a head coach and ramming a coach and GM down our throats when each should be neither
Ireland was and is just a scout and is way above his head
How can Ross not see this?

greg, you on drugs man? Best of the QB class? Luck, Griffin and Wilson are already top 10 qbs. Tannehill is top 25

Craig please.... Ill wipe the floor with you buddy! Anytime any day

Perhaps Aloco......

BUT YOU STILL GOT BUSTED....PERIOD....

Aloco,

I was with you...

Until you included Kris.

not quite getting the mileage out of this "4th losing season in a row" gig......would 8-8 make fans feel ALOT better than 7-9?--and 8-8 wouldnt even be a winning season, technically--8-8 wouldnt have made me feel better......its playoffs or nothing, really.

Dolphins tentative, overmatched -coaches & players. Cold seemed to be a factor. Can't run with the big dogs, yet.

It's a fine line in the NFL,

a)Binns takes the catch at the 2 yd line

b)Bush doen't drop the handoff in the red zone

c)Welker's messed up catch stays an inch of the floor, which Clemons took to the house.

It'd then be 21-21 and all to play for. So close yet so far. I hate New England more than the NYJ

So what's with it ALoco? What's with all the sign in names? We all know you do it, the question is WHY? Do you get off on this or something? Like, what's the mentality man? Are you on a lot of medication or something, 'cause maybe that would be different. But if you're not, maybe you should be, no?

Is this like the highlight for the day for your or something? Does it ever get hard for you to keep all these personalities straight?

jonathan martin was steamrolled by a blitzing cornerback i nthe 4th quarter. all he does is backpedal into the qb. atrocious game by him....

Andrew for a 6th round pick Clay has shown some skills. Again he was in his second year this year before he got hurt. He also had a rookie throwing him the ball. I am not saying that he is Gronkowski but serviceable for a 6th round pick which is what you expect. Ireland will focus more attention this year on offensive playmakers early in the draft and in FA. Though I honestly, hope that he takes a pass rusher or guard Chance Warmack with the first pick. There are no WRs or TEs worth taking with that first pick.

You see that Aloco. That doesn't even make sense so not only are you a phony but can't even make up good excuses.

So Armando kicked you out because he didn't like your opinion?! Bwaahahahah puhlease. Armando allows people to stay in here after writing the most racially charged posts but kicked you out over an opinion on south fla reporters?!

Nope, guy, I have berated reporters in here and Armando has never once erased my post or kicked me out. Try again, what was the real reason he kicked you out? Don't bother, we know already.

PHINS....YOUR MADE UP LIES HAVE NO LIMITS,I ASKED YOU BEFORE AND YOU NEVER BEEN WILLING TO PROVIDE A PROOF ,...

NOTICE...........WE R ASKING ARMANDO TO SAY THE TRUTH AND HE NEVE,EVER WAS WILLING TO ANSWER ME OR ANY ONE ELSE ,EVEN TODAY ON A LIVE BLOG .......


YOU NO SHAME ,,,,,,

I AM ASKING AGAIN THE THE INTEGRITY WRITER ARMANDO IF I WITE WITH OTHER NAMES ?

NOTICE, HE WILL NEVER ANSWER B/C THE ANSWER IS NO ......AND THAT WILL KEEP THE BLOG HITS ALIVE,DONKEY.
