Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said that he is concerned about his team’s preseason performance.
We’d love to hear his thought’s on the flight crew that handled the team’s flight back from Dallas early on Thursday morning. Defensive end Jared Odrick sent out a tweet informing the masses that the Dolphins team plane backed into another plane on its way to the runway.
This is not real life…team plane backed into another plane right before take off. Party at @Anthony_Fasano ‘s old crib—

The incident damaged the team’s plane too much for it to fly, forcing them to wait several hours for a replacement aircraft. Just what everyone wants to see after a final preseason game on the road.
The team finally arrived home closer to the start of business on Thursday, a rough ending to what’s been a pretty rough preseason for the team. Injuries, the Chad Johnson saga, reports of player dismay in the wake of the Vontae Davis trade and everything Hard Knocks have combined to make for a little more chaos than you might like to see at this point in the year. Perhaps that makes the plane snafu a fitting final scene for the preseason.
Miami just hopes it isn’t an omen for the regular season as well.
