    What an *** whupping.

    Philbin should get ZERO credit for "handling" the Martin situation when it was his culture that caused it. They crapped the bed today. The coaches are to blame.

    We got manhandled at the LOS on both sides of the ball. While I didn't love the offensive gameplan, there's not much a coach can do when the GM assembles one of the worst OL's in the NFL. Instead of addressing that issue, he overpays for 2 garbage LB'ers and spends 3 of our 1st 4 draft picks on defense. Somehow, that defense managed to get worse this year and cannot stop the run.

    Some credit must be given to our great architect for constructing that Wall of China of an offensive line. HOF job!

    This is on the offensive line. They sucked. Hartline couldn't catch to save his life today. Our LB's are just terrible against the runner who fakes inside and goes outside.

    So many of those sacks are on the coaches. That's dead serious too.

    Predictable play calls and horrible line calls. It was so brutal.

    This is ultimately a team without an offensive line, without a running game and without decent linebackers. I'd be thrilled with an 8-8 season in all honesty

    Why would you keep running the same play up the middle? It's going right at their strength. I wish they would have fired the OC at half time.

    I'm with you. Coaching can only do so much when your GM leaves so many gaping holes on your roster. That's why I figured coming into this season we were a 9-7 team. It's been a roller coaster ride of a season but we're just not there yet.

    I agree and it really seemed no one cared to make any adjustments.

    can anyone else fire the coaches, Sherman? don't think Philbin will do that, Unless they keep Sherman and someone else calls the plays. i'm sure they will have a sit down
    and evaluate.

    I'm not going to overreact and call for Philbin's firing, but I do believe that the game plan was poor and the adjustments were nonexistent. The same blitzes worked for Buffalo repeatedly. And while some were physical beats far too many were schematic beats. Also there were almost no play calls to take advantage of those blitzes.

    Absolutely right it's on the coaches. Everyone moron wants to jump on the GM for the Oline, the same one that held up fine the past 3 weeks. The coach is supposed to be an O-line guru, and prepare the team. Huge failure today by Philbin and the entire staff.

    Today was definitely a terrible game for Philbin. He's put on notice, I think.

    That's fair. I believe he should be fired bc he assembled a bad staff and I don't believe in him.

    But at least you can see this wasn't a tally for good coaching.

    I have heard it a thousand times but I'm guessing he will get one last chance to prove himself with a competent qb...

    The list is long...

    Philbin: For having the team TOTALLY unprepared to play a very meaningful football game.

    Mike Sherman: For making zero adjustments to his game plan. The Bills were sending corners off the edge right off the bat, no adjustment. The Bills were feasting on the O-line, no adjustment. We attempted to run the ball, up the middle, where they are stout, instead of attacking the perimeter, where they are softer. No screen passes, none. No draws. No designed roll outs. Shotgun, straight drop, all day. He did NOTHING. He should not even be paid for today, I'd fire him on the plane.

    Jim Turner: Whatever.

    Kevin Coyle: Instead of attacking an inexperienced, third rate quarterback he played conservative and lost to him, for the second time in a year. Losing to Thad Lewis twice in a year is a fireable offense all on it's own.

    Maybe the worst coaching performance I've ever seen.

    We got swept by the Buffalo ****ing Bills. We got swept by a team quarterbacked by Thad ****ing Lewis.

    Yup, all his fault today.

    IF we ignore the horrid game plan.

    The flat team.

    The pass protection.

    The half dozen drops.

    The defense not being able to stop the run.

    The defense not being able to get pressure on Thad Lewis.

    The defense not being able to get off the field on 3rd down....

    ....yes, it's all because of Ryan Tannehill.
