Dolphins players don’t have ‘great respect for the coaching staff’


In 2013, it became clear that there were plenty of issues in the Miami Dolphins organization. After the team’s season came to an end, offensive coordinator Mike Sherman and general manager Jeff Ireland were fired in an attempt to get everything back on the right track, but it looks like the problems run even deeper.

According to a recent report, many players inside of the Dolphins organization do not have respect for the coaching staff and they don’t feel like they are learning in Miami.

“Criticism of the coaches is consistent with everyone I talk to on the team,” a source told the Miami Herald. “You have some assistants who weren’t experienced or comfortable in their jobs. Some players said they didn’t learn much. It’s pretty disconcerting. There’s not a lot of great teaching there.”

If head coach Joe Philbin doesn’t begin to turn things around, there is a good chance that he could be fired during next season. There is no denying that he is a part of the problem and the responsibility of gaining respect and order should fall on the shoulders of the team’s head coach.

    Philbin would be a horrible high school coach! What’s so shocking that the rest of the coaches are crap! The whole staff should have been fired mid year! What’s it gonna take a 1-5 start for this idiot to get fired!
