Vance Joseph’s Dolphins getting destroyed against Steelers
Denver Broncos head coaching candidate Vance Joseph is having a rough day in the playoffs against one of the NFL’s most explosive offenses…
It hasn’t been a great day at the office for Denver Broncos head coaching candidate Vance Joseph, whose Miami Dolphins defense has been absolutely destroyed by the Pittsburgh Steelers.
From the first drive of the game, it was apparent that the Steelers were on a mission in this game, and the elements haven’t favored Miami in the slightest. This game is being played on the road in one of the most hostile environments in the NFL, against a Steelers team that is as close to full strength as they can get offensively.
Pittsburgh running back Le’Veon Bell has had an amazing game, running for 167 yards and two touchdowns while also catching a pair of passes.
Miami’s inability to stop the run has allowed Ben Roethlisberger to pick apart their secondary to the tune of 13 completions on only 17 attempts with a pair of touchdowns.
This game is not all on Joseph, but it is very disappointing to see his unit playing like this on the game’s biggest stage. Miami’s offense hasn’t really helped any, but you also can’t really judge Joseph as a head coaching candidate based on one game.
Still, it’s going to at least force John Elway and the Broncos’ brain trust to take an extended look at the man who is considered the ‘favorite’ for this job, perhaps the most coveted in the NFL right now. Joseph won’t be interviewing with the Broncos on Monday, however:
Hopefully there’s some clarity on the Broncos’ head coaching search here in the near future. For now, it continues to be a three-horse race between Dave Toub, Kyle Shanahan, and Vance Joseph.
