Joe Philbin Let Go After Just 4 Games
The Miami Dolphins became the first NFL team to fire their coach – jettisoning Joe Philbin from a sinking ship – which leads to speculation as to whom will be next.
The NFL is a copycat league, after all, and after Dolphins owner Steve Ross made the first move, surely another one will do the same.
Eagles Fans Upset With Chip Kelly
A likely candidate is Chip Kelly, who is being butchered on Twitter.

Or Jim Caldwell. At about the time that Ross was telling reporters “My goal is to still make the playoff,” Caldwall was on Monday Night Football falling to 0-4 with the Detroit Lions.
Then again, Lions fans are used to these kind of results.
It’s too soon for the 49ers to fire Jim Tomsula (they are getting what they deserve by chasing away Jim Harbaugh) but what about John Fox in Chicago? The Bears are 1-3 and looked pathetic in two of those loses.
It could well be Chuck Pagano, who said he may not be back next year and with just a 2-2 start in a weak division, the Indianapolis Colts are looking at a very disappointing season.
Only four games into the season is a pretty quick trigger but nobody who has seen the Dolphins could argue with the decision. They have been outscored 37-3 in the first quarter this year.
This included 27-0 to Buffalo the third game at home. It was 14-zip in the first quarter. Fans don’t pay a bunch of money to want to leave the stadium before their first beer is empty.
One thing is for sure, it won’t take long for another owner follows Ross’ lead.
