« Dolphins overcome disasterous first quarter | Main | The fallout from a third consecutive loss »

Bill defeat the Dolphins, 23-21

They came here with their third string quarterback. They came on the road. They played a team coming off a bye.

And the Buffalo Bills still beat the Dolphins, 23-21 today.

Awful.

This is the third consecutive loss for Miami. And the worst of the season.

I hate to place blame, but the play-calling by offensive coordinator Mike Sherman when the Dolphins led 21-20 late in the fourth quarter was very questionable.

He passed. And passed. And passed. Three and out.

Next series he passed again and Ryan Tannehill got hit and fumbled, setting the Bills up for the game-winning field goal.

That was delivered by Dan Carpenter. Remember him?

Bad all the way around.

No Evidence

Stuck with Sherman. And, this offense. Philbin doesn't call plays. He watches for gum wrappers and untied show.

shoes

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAAHAHHAHA

AND WE GAVE ROSS AN EXtENSION!!!!

HAHAHAHA

THE ROOKIES HE DRAFTED DONT DO A THING!

NOT ONE PLAYER IS DOING ANYTHING!!!!

HE COULD HAVE TRADED FOR ALBERT TOO

HAHAHAHAHAH

5-11 IS WHAT I SAID EVEN AFTER 3-0!!!

5-11 AT BEST!!!!

WHAT A JOKE!!! HSHSHSHSHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAA

Same story, different day. Can we begin the discussion about a Dolphin curse? Begin with Dan Carpenter.

Bwhahahah. The problem is Mike Sherman thinks he has Tom Brady as QB. T Hill stinks and is nothing special were F! Still have no QB seasons done!

2 weeks to plan this game?? ... this team is amazing , they are undisciplined , sloppy and even foolish ... well this forum reflects what dolphins has made to fan base ... The have dismissed fan base ... we dont ask them to win añll games... we ask them to play like pros every game... today they play like a bunch of colleges...
To loose against buf with a 3rd stringer QB is too much ... I dont wanna know anything about this team ... They are a bunch of coky and foolish players

this is not a playoff team. this was not a playoff team before the season started. tannehill will never be an elite qb, just a serviceable nfl starter. and irelands offseason moves can officially be called a failure.

What a joke ,

Who would you rather have now? Dion Jordan or any better offensive lineman? Bush, or any Dolphin running back? Totally disgusted with this team and I've been around since 1969.

...No doubt. I haven't been critical of the playcalling until the 4th quarter today. WTF??? The sad part is that the formation we were in when the fumble occurred had been working all freeking day..as a run formation. We finally went to 2 freeking tight ends and it was everything it needs to be. But instead of staying with what was working..Boom, we get cute. I don't get it. That was a game we should have never lost. Never. I'm not quite sure what to feel right now.

sherman might be the worst play caller ive ever seen. Run the ball 3 times and punt if you have to and pin them deep. Just a complete joke

btw, don jones' job is to cover kicks. that is the only reason he made this team. and he doesn't know that a player who goes out of bounds cannot be the first to touch the ball. what is the problem here, stupidity or bad coaching?

Exactly what I didn't want to see. It confirms that our last 2 losses were no flukes. We are regressing.

LIVE HERE IN BILL'S COUNTRY ~ SHOULD HAVE BEEN EASY DIVISION WIN. BILL'S ARE DYSFUNCTIONAL, BUT MARONE IS A BETTER COACH.TIME TO EVALUATE MIAMI'S POOR COACHING STAFF. SEND SHERMAN TO SHOWERS GET A HEAD COACH WITH SOME BRAVADO.
SHULA WOULDN'T BE LETTING THIS HAPPEN. ESPECIALLY THIS YEAR, DIVISION IS WIDE OPEN FOR THE TAKING. BRING BACK SPARANO AND THE FIST PUMP !!
WHY THREE AND OUT WITH POOR PASSES, WHAT HAPPEN TO RUNNING GAME. LET MARCUS FOLLOW UP WITH HIS RETURN.

DION JORDAN!!

BAHAHAHAHAH

JAMAR TAYLOR!!

BAHAHAHAHHAHA

DALLAS THOMAS

BAHAHAHAHAH

JEFF IREALDN GETS AN EXTENSION!!!

BAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAH

this is exactly the type of thing that got sherman fired at texas a&m.

Stuck with this nonsense until Ross sells team!

Ravens fired OC(Cameron) last year during season and went on to win the sb.

We're not going to win the sb this year, but, that's no excuse not to give Sherman his pink slip today.

What a joke we need a different OC who can see the big picture if we are ever to move forward. As soon as the media started reporting that Tannehill was a good young QB on ESPN this team has regressed.

Please fire Sherman
Worst play calling ever

Who would you rather have now? Dion Jordan or any better offensive lineman? Bush, or any Dolphin running back? Totally disgusted with this team and I've been around since 1969.

Dion Jordan?! I heard of him, has he even played this season????? Jesus Christ what a waste of picks.

The fact that the JETS are better than we are should tell you everything you need to know. Nothing good on this team. NOTHING.

Forget previous series. Thigpen and STs handed it to Sherman. They had enough time to throw anywhere and spike it. Awful.

Another season and the same thing, I am freaking done with this team again. I'm sick of hearing "well, we'll look at the tape and fix things" they can't do it anything right. The defense will save the offense and then they can't produce crap, or the offense will gain some momentum and then the defense can't get off the field on 3rd down. I mean come on 3rd and 15 and 3rd and 20, I'd bet if the opposing team had to convert a 3rd and 75 they'd be able to do it. Why can't this team just get their freaking act together. They suck, and they wonder why people don't want to come to the games, I don't even want to watch on the television. I haven't been this mad since the so called "Miracle at the Meadowland" They need to figure out what they're doing, because they are killing the fan base cause I'm sure I'm not the only one. Play calling sucks on both sides, the protection is still horrid at best. Clabo is worthless. Sherman can't seem to get out of his own way of calling horrendous play one after another. If I was coach Philbin I would seriously think about firing the entire staff. This so called top 10 defense can't keep anyone out of the endzone, it's pathetic!!!!!!!!

Bob Griese on radio after game lost: "It all comes down to protecting the Quarterback."

Was Mario W EVER contained in a critical situation?

So much for Sturgis and his amazing kicks too. What irony that Carp kicks the game winner and stops the go ahead kickoff return touchdown. Pitiful. This sh88 makes me want to scream this loss hurts.

Particularly I think it's on Tyson clabo. How can tannehill do anything if he's not allowed to play football?

This team doesn't have a heart. Or a brain or courage for that matter.

Blame this one on the Sherminator!

Same old Same old.

Agree with Stevet.

Isn't it a fact that teams starting 3-0 go to playoffs 70% of the time....keep the faith..HA!

Dolphins = AFC East Cellar

can we also send Clabo to free agency. he absolutely blows.

glad they worked on correcting tannehill's ball security problems during the buy. p.s. go back and look at tannehill's film at texas a&m. he was a turnover machine. in fact, in the loss to texas that ultimately got sherman fired, tannehill threw 3 crucial interceptions. but sherman had blinders on when evaulating him and convincing ireland to draft him at 8. the same problems will continue to plague him....

Pathetic. First fire Mike Sherman. 3 passes out of the shotgun after your defense makes a huge stop. A run play after the defense intercepts the ball. I could go on and on, Mike Shermans play calling is f$#@ing awful, period.

Next, Clabo is the biggest piece of s$#t that ever wore a Miami uniform, I wish we had the bum from Dallas back. Pushede right back into the qb multiple times today, especially bad when he is moving backward at the snap of the ball and allows the dlinemen to strip Tannehills arm. Can't even hold a block for longer that a second. F%$#ing pathetic.

After Mario W rung Ryan's bell we didnt stand a chance.

NE will kill us as will the JETS.

Pathetic again, as every year.

Is it bad that I miss Dan Henning?????

BAHAHAHAHAHHAHA

I LOVE SEEING THIS RETARD GM FAIL.

WHY EVEN BOTHER PLAYING THE GAMES

WE LOST BEFORE THEY STARTED DRAFTING TRASH AND SIGNING TRASH.

PHILBIN CANT COACH. HES TOO BUSY PICKING UP GUM OFF THE FLOOR.

SHERMAN SUCKS. HENNEHILL SUCKS.

JEFFY IRELAND GOT AN EXTENSION

AHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA

This is shameful what a mess

miami deserved to lose this game, if for nothing more than philbin's stupidity for staying with clabo after he had demonstrated he was the worst starting right tackle in the nfl.

..21 rushes(running backs) 37 pass attempts??? When will this staff learn that we cannot win games with a run-pass ratio that is so one sided????????

I need a simple explination? We are not yet capable of throwing the ball this many times. Like I opined earlier this week. We may win a few games. But until the quarterback has developed into a passer that can handle this, until the offense in general is able to play like this...We must RUN THE BALL..It is pretty simple!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111

I hope we lose every game this year so Philbin and Sherman are fired and we get a high draft choice that we will blow on a F@CKING DE. Cut Clabo now, cut Martin now, start ANYONE in their place because it does not matter!

It's bad enough that I miss Jay Fiedler

I recommend Ireland's contract be bought out at years end. And I recommend Sherman be sent to the OC Old Folks Home. And I recommend that every pick in the first three rounds be spent on the O FREAKIN LINE!

has normal we suck we need a mean coach- bill cowher.we will finish last in divison maybe time to change team

Vontae Leach and Brandon Albert.

Miami could have had both of them, easily.

Miami would be sitting at 5-1 right now.

But Ireland wouldn't pull the trigger on either.

Fire Ireland. His incompetence has to come to an end.

An inexcusable loss - bad as they get!

tannehill has no clue of game situations.how can you fumble the ball with the lead and running the clock down. i'm tired of hearing this guy is a good qb. he destroyed this game all by himself. what a terrible game from a wide receiver playing qb. i can't take these stupid hs mistakes anymore.

Eat sh,t losers. Pathetic fish. Keep celebrating 72 - pathetic.

Ohhh why do we still have the same offensive linemen playing!! The only thing they can block is the air from hitting Tannehill!!!! Why have we not made any adjustments?? Fix the line you fix the running offense and it won't make u a one dimensional team!!! Wow doesn't take a freaking genious to figure it out!!! If ur gonna call pass pass pass can u at least go deep to ummm make the corners at least run!!! Failure totally a failure!!

Does Joe Philbin change his expression at all during the game??? Bwahhahah he looks like an old man who has no idea what's going on in front of him!!! He"ll never fire his mentor Mike Sherman. Ireland shelled out millions on garbage players like Ellerbe and the other dread head dummy

Tannehill is beyond pathetic he knows his OL sucks will he even try to get out of a non existence pocket?? NOpe!

Ireland gives away Brandon Marshall and Reggie Bush and replaces them with garbage. Nothing will change unless IRELAND IS FIRED!!!!

Next, Clabo is the biggest piece of s$#t that ever wore a Miami uniform, I wish we had the bum from Dallas back.

There has got to be someone who is more efficent than Clabo. Why hasn't Watkins hit the field yet. As soon as the announcers started saying that the oline was doing a good job in protection they began to falter.

worst team ever,next time the sun live stadium is empty.
what a joke this team,what a joke the coaching staff,fire all of them.

You guys a are dreaming.

No one is going to get fired by Ross. It's ROSS that needs to go.

Keep those stands empty for a few more years and it might happen.

Particularly, we can't blame our 3 losses on any one individual player. At one time or another, many Dolphins players have contributed to losses.

Then there's the coaching staff, Jeff Ireland, and Steve Ross. This franchise is cluster-forked!

The big adjustment was starting Daniel Thomas?! THAT was the answer to reversing the slide? That right there should be cause enough to fire this entire coaching staff.

anyone could have made the offseason moves that ireland made. sign the highest price free agent and pass on shoring up areas of the team that actually needed work. note. it wasn't dansby and burnett. he had already traded a true elite wide out in marshall. and he did not shore up the o-line. i will say this. my guess is philbin was behind getting rid of jake long, but it's on ireland to replace him. ireland needs to be let go.
