Dolphins lay another egg, fall to Chargers

in Sports/Top Headlines by

To Miami Dolphins Coach Dan Campbell, October must seem like so long ago. When he won his first two games after taking over for the fired Joe Philbin, it appeared his team was responding to his leadership. Since that quick start, Miami has lost six of their last eight games. The latest was Sunday’s debacle at San Diego, where the Chargers, largely on the strength of four Danny Woodhead touchdowns, manhandled the Dolphins, 30-14. San Diego broke a five-game home…

To those currently on the Miami Dolphins coaching staff, here is a suggestion for increasing job security; either beat the New York Jets or put up a better struggle while losing.

After a brief turnaround when Campbell replaced Joe Philbin a month ago, the season is again…

Miami Dolphins veteran receiver Greg Jennings arrived at work Monday to discover he had been assigned a different locker, which was fine with him. “I was just hoping I still had a locker,” Jennings said. A new coach has brought job insecurity and lots of change, from the locker room arrangement and practice routine to schemes and use of personnel. Interim coach Dan Campbell said he has sought advice from many associates and mentors since being promoted last week, and…
