I don't necessarily think anyone wants to Philbin to get fired. We all want to see him and the Dolphins succeed.
It's not that the Dolphins lose. It's HOW they lose.
I believe it comes down to coaching. I don't need to go through the 2 collapses against Detroit and Green Bay, we all know what happened. Let's talk about Denver.
Philbin loves calling defensive time outs to "Kodak" the offense. So why didn't he do that when Denver scored in the red zone when Jelani Jenkins was covering Demaryius Thomas? Yes, I get it, Denver had him lined up as a TE which is why Jenkins picked him up, but why not call one of your famous time outs to combat that and maybe make Denver change the play or at least be better prepared?
So to recap, Miami calls time outs against teams that they have on the ropes without any way to stop the clock and does not call them against the team that is shredding their defense.
I personally like the way the Phins look recently but Philbin must put his team in a position to win. He has not done that which is why we are on the outside looking in right now.
If the Phins lose because of a great play by the opposing team, it would be a lot better than losing because they are getting out coached.
Hopefully Philbin learns from all this and gives his team the best chance to win week in and week out.
