JOE PHILBIN:

Greg Cote: Staying the course with Joe Philbin the right choice | The Miami Herald
At 8-7 the Dolphins’ record will have again improved under Joe Philbin if Miami beats the New York Jets here next Sunday, a reasonable expectation.

In typical Miami Dolphins fashion, they were officially eliminated from a postseason berth with a Pittsburgh Steelers victory while they fought tooth and nail during an action-packed fourth quarter at home against the Minnesota Vikings. The wild finish netted the feel-good 37-35 victory, and the chance to at least finish the season with a winning record when they face the New York Jets on Sunday is a small consolation prize. But more important to their future was the announcement after the game from owner Stephen Ross that head coach Joe Philbin would indeed be retained for next season and finish out his original four-year deal.
