The Miami Dolphins have been unable to make the playoffs since 2008 when they won the AFC East with an 11-5 record, and head coach Joe Philbin has not finished better than 8-8 in each of his first three seasons.

The Dolphins exercised patience with him by giving him a one-year contract extension though, and it will run through the 2016 season.
Quarterback Ryan Tannehill has shown steady improvement since being drafted in 2012, but the Dolphins have not come close to unseating the New England Patriots as AFC East champions.
They overhauled their offense by trading wide receiver Mike Wallace and releasing Brian Hartline and Brandon Gibson before acquiring Kenny Stills from the New Orleans Saints.
Owner Stephen Ross said that he hopes to see improvement from the Dolphins despite expressing confidence in Philbin.
