The lackluster defensive performance has led to some rumblings out of the Dolphins' locker room. Specifically, players were peevish about defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle's game plan.
The coordinator added the team will review the defensive performance Tuesday and look at where he and the defense need to improve.
The scheme, it should be said, was not what caused the cornucopia of missed tackles that plagued the Dolphins' defense all game long.
"We're not playing well enough over the last two weeks to win a football game in the National Football League," coach Joe Philbin said after the loss. "It's hard to say, but that's the facts."
Inside the locker room, players appear to be grumbling. Outside, the fans are already in full-throated revolt mode. And Philbin's calescent seat grows more uncomfortable by the week.
