Miami morning take: Reaction Monday

November, 25, 2013
Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories Monday from around the web: Morning take: Miami blew a 13-point lead in the second quarter to the Carolina Panthers. The Dolphins also blew a 14-point lead last month to the New England Patriots. Miami simply doesn’t have the killer instinct to put teams away.
Morning take: It’s too late for that. Miami is not that kind of emotional team. The Dolphins try to be even-keeled in good times and bad – and that’s a reflection of coach Joe Philbin.
  • John Congemi of the team website says the Dolphins need touchdowns, not field goals.
Morning take: Miami needs points -- period -- in the second half. The Dolphins were outscored 14-0 after halftime. That puts a lot of pressure on Miami’s defense.
  • The Dolphins’ running game gets an “F” for their performance against Carolina, according to the Sun Sentinel.
Morning take: Miami ran for just 52 yards, with quarterback Ryan Tannehill the leading rusher. That’s not a formula for success.
