Dolphins Players Turning on Joe Philbin and Coaching Staff After Embarrassing Loss

So that was not at all shocking.

The Miami Dolphins, coming off a throttling at the hands of the Buffalo Bills last week, had a chance at getting back on track this week at home against a Kansas City Chiefs team playing without seven of its starters, including its star running back, that managed to come out and kick us all square in the pills until we puked our collective kidneys.

The Chiefs obliterated the Dolphins to the tune of 34-15 in front of the home crowd, and now it seems that players are fed up, calling out the coaching staff's lack of game-time adjustments and overall suckiness.

In other words, IT WAS PURE MIAMI DOLPHINS FOOTBALL.

Here's what we learned (or, already knew, as it were):

Tannehill isn't the sole reason the Fins suck, but he's not helping Last week, we wrote our declaration that Ryan Tannehill is not the answer at QB this team has been looking for all these years. It took only a week, but it looks like everyone else is coming around to seeing it our way. O HAI TODAY'S SUN SENTINEL.

Yet coming off a week when he took the blame for his own crappiness, Tannehill came out on Sunday and did pretty much absolutely nothing to dispel the notion that he's just not very good. What's worse, Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith -- who is the walking definition of the middling quarterback -- downright made Tannehill look like a bucket of piss in comparison. Where Smith was decisive and sharp, Tannehill seemed befuddled and out of his element. When Tannehill wasn't hitting his targets, he was staring down receivers. And when he couldn't find open receivers, he stood around looking for one until a Kansas City linebacker eventually sacked him. Tannehill lacks the inner clock and overall pretense a successful QB needs. Whether that was knocked out of him last year when he was sacked roughly 7,947 times, we'll never truly know. Either way, something's missing.

It's only a matter of time before the fan base starts clamoring for Matt Moore, because the best way to heal an open wound is by rubbing shit on it.

It's Only Week Three and Already Joe Philbin Has Lost the Team
