Miami Dolphins lost any chance of playing in the playoffs as they lost yet another home game. 2010 is certainly not a great year for the now 7 – 7 Dolphins. Yes, a 7 -7 season is certainly nothing to be ashamed of. However, it’s the Fins’ home record that is quite disheartening.
The recent loss to the Buffalo Bills cancels out any chance of Miami playing in the playoffs this season. A lot was riding on that game. First, a ticket to the playoffs. Second, break their current bad spell playing at home. The team failed on both attempts.
The 14-17 loss to the Bills pretty much signifies the team’s performance this season. They defended well, but could not do anything offensively. Their current inability to win matches on home soil is also quite baffling. The Dolphins are 1 – 6 at home right now. Their only home winning achievement this season is against the Tennessee Titans in November.
The Dolphins have an excellent record playing away, though. They are 6 -1 when they visit their opponent’s home ground. If only their home record was a little better, Miami would certainly be playing in the playoffs. That, however, is not the case this season.
Two more games of the season left to play. The Fins could very well use them to restore some pride into the team. They could also use the two games to provide match day exposure to those who have not seen too much plays this season.
Time to start thinking about the next season then for the Miami coaching staff. Go Phins!
