Poll results: Coaching Dolphins' big issue

The results are in from more than 2,000 Miami Dolphins fans. According to our latest SportsNation poll in the Dolphins blog, Miami’s biggest issue during this slow start to the 2014 season is coaching, which garnered 44 percent of the vote at the time of this post.

There are various reasons why Miami is 1-2 and lost its past two games by 19 points each. We listed a few major explanations, such as mediocre quarterback play (27 percent), dropped passes (13 percent) and getting off to slow starts in the first half (10 percent).

However, a majority of Dolphins fans feel coaching has been the biggest reason Miami doesn't look like a playoff contender early in the season. Coach Joe Philbin and his staff have made consistent mistakes with play-calling and clock management.

The good news for the Dolphins is there’s still plenty of football left to play. Miami will travel to London to play the winless Oakland Raiders (0-3) on Sunday with a chance to get back to .500 before its bye week.
