An NFL team’s preseason record may not matter, but Dolphins coach Joe Philbin admitted that he was concerned about the way his team has played after they finished the preseason with a record of 0-4.
Following the Dolphins’ 30-13 loss to the Cowboys on Wednesday night, Philbin said he was glad to have the preseason over with because his team has been badly outplayed so far.
“The only good news is this part’s over,” Philbin said, via Ben Volin of the Palm Beach Post. “Am I concerned? Yeah. . . . I thought we’ve been a good team in practice, we haven’t transferred that to the game.”
The Dolphins have lost their four preseason games by a combined score of 96-43, and Philbin isn’t happy about that.
“I don’t care if it’s the fourth preseason game, seventh regular season game or the Super Bowl. That’s unacceptable,” Philbin said.
Philbin has a tough task ahead of him getting the Dolphins to perform at an acceptable level Week One in Houston.
