Joe Philbin's Time Is Up After Patriots Destroy Dolphins

The Miami Dolphins' 41-13 humiliating blowout loss to the New England Patriots Sunday wasn't just the last nail in the Dolphins season, it was the six-feet of dirt on Joe Philbin's tenure as head coach. With the team's playoff hopes on the line, the Dolphins found every way, from start-to-finish, to make sure there would be no question as to whether this season could be saved; it's over, and so is Joe Philbin's time in Miami.

Joe Philbin is now 22-24 in three seasons with Miami, and has no playoff appearances, much less a playoff win, to show for it.
