Separate names with a comma.
On pace to be Tanny's best NFL game.
Who could have thought this would be possible 3 weeks ago? I'll need ketchup for my crow by the way.
Fair enough, although I prefer to reserve judgement (and expectations) until at least after we play the Pats and the second leg with Buff. Then...
Guys these are the Titans...nothing to get worked up about.
I don't think anyone hates Philbin personally...there really isn't much to hate...and that's not a compliment either. The guy hardly has a...
I hope your expectations don't involve the playoffs because that ship has sailed and won't be back until next September. I also hope your...
I really and truly hope this isn't true. Tanney has at least been a total class act these last 3 years, no sense into tarnishing that rep over a...
He doesn't inspire any confidence, imho. Being severe and stoic is fine if you actually show some results.....when you don't you just look like a...
We are making AFC East look like a tough division and we haven't even played NE yet.....just think about that for a second.
With the kind of stench some of the players on this team are making, to go after Wake does seem a bit silly.
Knowing this team we'll be 7-9 with nothing but shattered dreams in December.
Let's remember happy times.
At this rate I'd take Dwayne Johnson.
Playoff hopes have died already considering the spread in AFC E and how this team looks after 3 games....short of a miracle and the rest of the...
Elite QBs? Dude let's get this o-line figured out before we dream about passing records and SBs....
Jesus, how many times did YOU read it? :ohmy:
What do we have to lose at this stage? Pats are 3-0, Jest and Balls are 2-1 and we are 1-2 with the worst blowout in recent years and a loss to...
First Wallace, now Suh. We love going through other teams' trash. Wake up, there is a reason these guys were FAs.....
Same time same place next year right? Hey, uhm, is anyone taking those Doritos home?
Not voting. "No." is way too reserved for how I feel about the (mis)management here.
Let's get Shula back on the sidelines while we still can (with respect).
And because he has the integrity and sportsmanship of a 5th grade bully.
Does the defense realize they are still on the clock? Pathetic.
Philbin is and has always been useless. I didn't like Suh before he came to MIA, I like him less now. We get our first decent QB in more than a...
Guess it's hard to tell what's going on from across the pond eh "mate"?
Miller is hit or miss.
Grimes....one man D.
This D is as bad in real life as it looks good on paper....which is to say quite bad.
D is asleep.
This could be the turning point right here....
That's right Henne, you watch and take notes.
Darius better not have bet a steak dinner on this game.
What a **** show on D.
Dan Carpenter is laughing his *** off.
Really like Tanny today.
Tanny is what we've been asking for, for over a decade; a young, intelligent, talented guy with no off-field problems, can stay healthy and who...
In fairness his body language reeks of bullishness and smugness. It's not necessary. We don't need Cogs 2.0 so thanks but no thanks.
I guess if it keeps all the unconstructive, QB-bashing vaulted in one thread without it leaking over into other discussions then I don't mind....
Exactly. Lucky/epic return saved our asses. Good time management though....unlike last season.
I knew from the moment I saw this thread that it would never die.
Was otherwise pre-occupied....just joining in now....not happy....can anyone sum up the game so far?
If only Jake Long worked out.....*sigh*
JT probably deserves it more but I'd say I like Ricky better.
Will be missed on those 4th and longs....
That's right. The T-Hill hatewagoning is way out of style by now.
Would love to see some conservative QB running this season. Nothing to risk injury but those 'surprise burn!' runs Ryan can make, like the one...
Right? What a QB draft 2012 turned out to be. I mean no one could have predicted that RG3 and T-Hill would trade media hype 3 years later.
Talk about first world problems. In the Republic of Canadasovka i'm lucky to see the Fins play on any sports channels on cable. If they play the...
It wasn't always that way around here. Interestingly all the Tannehill haters have been mysteriously quiet lately. Something tells me they will...
The main reason I'm going twill with the throwback is how small the printing is on the replica jerseys. Since Nike moved in the printed jerseys...
If that doesn't get you amped up for week 1 I don't know what will!
It becomes part of your identity around people you know, especially if you live outside Florida. You revel in those wins against big market teams...
How the hell would black make any sense?
At any rate the orange alts should have always been a fan-gear only thing in my opinion, I found them...
I have confidence in the players, it's Coyle who needs to convince me at this point.
His leadership was never really in question. He was basically making the same remarks after getting flattened like a pancake week after week in '13.
If you think the athletes aren't human beings who have highs and lows and where the media and the fans can get into their heads then you plainly...
Someone gets it.
Yeah....you don't understand what I said at all. FOR YOUR OWN LIVELIHOOD...don't create 6-0 or 12-0 fantasy expectations of this team, you likely...
Like seriously. T-Hill hate is sooooo 2013.
Stats aside I tend to hold up MLB or inside linebacker as the more important position on the defense over a defensive end since it tends to be the...
We don't need 2013 all over again....3-0, hyped up, hopes high....finish 8-8....You can start 6-0 and still finish 6-10.
Just focus on the each...
First of all ZT is "the" defensive legend and second of all ZT is the defensive legend.
What? Tannehill is gonna be the only QB in the league to play a defensive position? No? Then don't invite this crap storm about judging you on...
I don't know about that but I definitely smell payoffs...mmmm.
Get him a big pair of fakes that look like what ol' cool n' easy used to wear. We literally will not lose a game (perfect season deuce?).
I will buy one.
There is the natural tendency to blame the QB for everything (even piss poor defense and lack luster special teams) and then there was the crap...
Not sure if this has been posted before but I just came across this....love how Marino inadvertently jabs Brady towards the end of the video....
Okay well for better or worse (likely better) Tanny is our guy. Kind of a relief to have an actual franchise guy instead of a revolving door of...
ABSURD...And here I was thinking Bellicheat lost it by not calling TO....these coaches one up each other....
Jaded hardcore, which slots between casual and true hardcore.
That ref contorted like he was a demon splashed with holy water. As if there was any doubt....
Could have been a HoFer...maybe the last HoF RB.....what a shame...
Ryan just went out there made a "this is MY team" statement game. The rest of us can only nod, drool and if applicable, eat crow.
He's deeply frustrating at times and then he's undeniably likeable the rest of the time. No one is blaming you for being a Flippity Flip Fin.
At the very least a performance like this should earn him some respite from the otherwise unrelenting "h8" being hurled around at him.
So true. So, so true.
Missed the game but proud to be a Phin. Great game by Tannehill, we just need more like that.
This was a nail biter against a pretty damn good team...we aren't the lost cause we like to think we are but some of the coaching decisions out...
I did that for the first bit of the Raiders game....I was NOT going to watch my team get humiliated to the ****ing Raiders.
Then I checked my...
That was his single best career game so far, 100% agree. This last one is definitely top 5 though.
That was not on Tannehill...come on.
Minni and JAX are gimmes. We're screwed with Denver. Everything else can go either way.
Get another TD here, what the hell.
Is it that bad to let Moore throw a few to see what he's got?
Was that Ricky!?
How do these scrubs have 14pts?
Ryan deserved a break.
I don't know about THAT. We don't want to give these jerks even 3 at this point.
Relaxing after his Pro bowl appearance and not going hard enough in practice?
Agree. Not sure why this hasn't happened yet. I think Moore would love the opportunity to just be out there again.
When you're losing this bad why not blitz every lay?
A regular Napoleon.
Don't need him to start ruining his great game either. Gives us a chance to (safely) evaluate Moore and get him some practice.
Any other game and i'd be irate.
We seriously have a shot at 60+ points at this rate.
This is absurd....but I love it.
Don't, for your own health.
Still think Philbin is about as responsible for this as you or I am. Sue me.
"It's good to be king."
This is comedy.
Would he really be able to play another snap if the pain was that intense? I think he probably just pulled something, hope he's okay.
Carr taking a page out of Ryan's book.
True but can you blame me? I'm like a fat kid who hasn't seen double fudge cake in years, leave me alone.
We want 62!
If Ryan kept that ball it would have been a TD.
That was the exact kind of play that we brought him back for...ridiculous having Miller run it.
fair enough, pour it on.
Am I allowed to feel bad for Raiders fans?
With Marino in attendance....can we pleeease do a 62-7? Or better?
Ryan's waaaay tougher than that. 2013 would have killed a mortal man.
Did I just hear the commentators berate Griese?
Can Janikowski get any fatter?
He needs an outstanding game under his belt to build confidence going forward. It would be an absolute shame if the rating dropped that much by...
Let's just hope he can finish the game with around the same rating.
wait...they actually call on holding on Wake? Am I in bizarro world?
It's Oakland but who cares? We are dismantling another NFL team and looking better than we did in week 1 all without Moreno and a good HC. Chalk...
This is the Tannehill we drafted. Keep it up.
You're over thinking it, he's just a dope.
Tannehill is absolutely on fire.
It's sort of disheartening when you realized this is one of the better threads around on thephins.com...
After this season that joke will be about us.
Arodgers12, all of us here can appreciate self-depreciative humor...heck Dolphins fans invented the term...but please, we are going to get killed...
I like it when Ryan's pissed, he shows some fire. Can't wait for Sunday (I have no expectations one way or another).
You're missing the point I was making; his performance so far this season does not merit benching him for Moore, especially in light of everything...
The Eagles are way ahead of us in pretty much every department...
More hyperbole. Tannehill didn't turn the ball over vs. KC and had over 600 yds in 3 games...and with the receivers dropping balls constantly and...
Uh, no. When you make a sweeping absolute statement like "Tannehill has never been good" you invite this kind of response. If you really wanted to...
That's completely different from what you said you earlier. I think what Ryan accomplished last year, despite the OL, the coaching, the scandal,...
Simply not true.
10/07/2012 W vs. CIN 17-13: 17/26 (65.4%) and 223yds, 0 TD, 0 INT. 92.3 QBR.
10/14/2012 W vs. STL 17-14: 21/29 (72.4%) and...
If half of these dropped balls were caught then the YPA would be at least 10-12yds.
No question but to be honest his performance this season so far does not merit getting benched for a guy who hasn't started in 3 years. They have...
I've noticed that too, he does seem to flip and flop around.
Come on. Henne is still a starter in this league, get real.
There, there Chad....he didn't mean that.
At least last year we had an identity. We were "That team with the garbage bully OL and that really good punter." Wake and Grimes were our crown...
You really rank Moore ahead of Tannehill? Otherwise the list is spot-on.
If this is truly the case then we need to get the ball moving asap to either be in a position to get an early pick in the next draft or figure out...
Did you tune in to the Buffalo game?
Ross seems to always want to be the "nice, friendly" owner. The way he got rid of Ireland was like politely asking the pool boy to leave your...
That last TD by KC was a figurative way for Reid to piss all over Philbin. This was in some way more humiliating than last week.
Never too soon. Us Fins have grown thick skin over the years....lay that **** on. Pile it high.
They didn't call holding on them...why would they call TD celebration?
To be fair Henne went to JAX...not exactly a talent/opportunity rich environment. Maybe we need a second hand veteran. Penny was working for us...
Why does Philbin always look like such a clueless twat on the sidelines?
**** these refs...call holding on one team only.
Why is it one or the other? Is it so hard to see that nothing is working on this offense consistently?
Every team with us on their schedule is getting excited.
Sure, let's try it but what are you gonna say after Moore wets the bed?
We need to beat the Raiders for pride but tank after that and try to get a decent pick...
Philbin should be done by now but look how much BS it took to get rid of Ireland...Ross has a high tolerance level for BS.
As bad as Tannehill was....you do not go to a pass play on 3rd and 1 after an incomplete.
Why didn't we hand off to the FB on that? BS playcall.
This is when you use Thomas.
No confidence in the OL to hold up that long?
If he's anything he has been tough these last few years.
I agree but you can at least see why some people have a problem with "Redskins". Nothing at all wrong with "Chiefs" though, which was the point I...
Give us that ball back!
Big difference between Chiefs and Redskins. One is equivalent to "Saints" while the other is equivalent to "Negros".
sad but true.
D makes members eat crow and happily so.
didn't expect this even from you, just stop.
Defense is the reason this is still a game.
Sturgis made that? I'm impressed.
We don't need that...defense needs rest.
Landry redeems himself.
We beat the Pats though...although that feels like an eternity ago.
We need a fat coach.
What other team can you think of that gets **** on by the NFL...at home!
The D got us back into this....can they keep us in?
Didn't the KC receiver celebrate on the first TD? What the hell is this?
Hartline is a workhorse for us....
Please don't DT this drive.
we seriously need 7 here....
Those are empty seats my friend.
Anyone who is watching the second half is a masochist. Seriously...eventually we might derive some joy at watching our team get humiliated week...
sure you are.
That's all you have for us? I was expecting a more in-depth analysis as to why Tannehill cannot catch his own passes.
But I agree with him. Why do we deserve any success? Sports fans are naturally fickle but some members here are borderline anti-Dolphin trolls.
Even little kids on Madden know better clock management than this....
lol and a few members have nothing to say for the moment....
This fanbase deserves nothing better.
Wow, you must be proud of yourself there Sherlock for putting that one together.
He was solid all first quarter...our receivers start dropping balls everywhere and anywhere....he gets sacked once and then you decide to post....
RT17 makes one mistake and the haters pounce lol clockwork.
Miller is stepping up...just don't expect him to catch.
Yikes. Ever since Tampa last year I am super weary of winless teams.
are you watching this game btw?
Why does it feel like we're down multiple scores?
Correction, we are the team that other teams need to put away.
You get what you pay for right?
Why'd we pass Carpenter for this turd?
RT17 has been golden today.
Tanney to Wallace IS a thing. Great leading if you ask me.
KC knows what it feels like to be us on offense.
Guys the defense has been good today...give them a break.
lat year it was the OL....we haven't even solved that issue and our ST and receivers are falling apart now?
shut up already...
shades of 2008!
Where is pro bowl Fields?
Miller is making us eat crow so far.
Nice run Miller....is Ryan wearing a Line cut jersey?
Holy **** landry...
lol @ KC
I think the outcome of this game will establish what kind of team we are more so than either the NE game or the Bills.
I just never liked the orange alternates of the old shadow numbers jerseys. In my opinion they were too orange, too shiny and the numbers didn't...
That motocross gif is disturbing.
You mean this monstrosity?
uhh....don't hold your breath.
Looking around the league...particularly at Buffalo after last week....there are teams that show off their tradition and club history much better...
When every pass has to be done from the shotgun plus a 3 step drop....and you're still under duress...It's tough.
Okay, so what? Everyone needs to play better. Wallace and Moreno are really the only two guys who are safe from criticism after last week.
Grimes, Brent  -
Wake, Cameron  +
This is an exercise in futility though. Next year we should have a cap or threshold for the final 2...
Either we start getting some work out of our pro-bowl center or we ship him out for a decent pick next year or some LBs that are worth a damn.
We were desperate for a QB though. Wilson/Foles over Tannehill makes sense in hindsight but we don't know how much of those guy's success comes...
Looking back now...yes Kuechly would have been our Zach Thomas 2.0 but was it that obvious back on draft day 2012? Not so sure....
We need to win our home games, period. This is not the kind of team that can step into away stadiums and hold their own so if we have any hope at...
From the horse's mouth, for what it's worth:...
Not a fan of Sturgis...those painful misses last year play a part in that opinion...I'm part of the pack that would have preferred to keep Carpenter.
If anyone has earned the right to have an off day it's Brandon. Give him the benefit of a doubt.
Your repeated use of this "rebuttal" only demonstrates how simple minded you are. I accuse you based on what you have and have not said, not by...
The running game was nonexistent against Buffalo, and you can't cop that out with Moreno's injury. We didn't have him or any big names last year...
Lay blame where it's due....everywhere it's due.
Whether or not Tannehill was good or bad for the first two quarters is no reason to waste a...
How about you stop distracting yourself with ad hominem and actually spit out an argument? We're talking about Philbin here, leave Tannehill for...
Don't you think he, as head coach, played a role in what kind of team he brought onto the field Sunday afternoon or are we alleviating him of even...
It was beyond horrible. Open up the thesaurus and give me the most extreme synonym for "horrible" and then multiply that by a hundred.
They also have solid linesmen in front of them, reliable run games, and receivers that make plays from nothing. On top of that they all have good...
Is Dalton elite? Is Foles elite? Rivers? Cutler?
You just can't have an average QB and suck everywhere else like we do. Playcalling was...
You're being hysterical. Ryan is easily better than everyone since Dan, save for Penny and maybe Fiedler.
I was indifferent to Philbin at first but i'm starting to get annoyed by just the sight of him. At least Sparano had a personality, this guy is...
Not really a good representation as the first 16 games were rookie season stats and everything after that was with a below college level OL.
I hate the Bills more now if that's even possible.
Critics come after QBs, we all know that and that's fine. But the criticism has to be grounded in reality at least a little bit. When you have...
You are conveniently forgetting all the great games he had in 2012 and 2013 and painting those seasons as complete failures...some of us remember...
No one is. I think that some transparency exists on the part of some members here who are known to have been Tannehill dissenters since before...
How many freakin' threads. He played bad, you don't like him, we get it, can we move on?
This is just the same old fin fairweatherness. At 8-6...
That's the QB's fault too I guess?
EJ Man is no Cam Newton but we made him look like one.
You're kidding right?
When other teams have OL troubles, NYG and Atlanta come to mind, they direct the heat where it's deserved.
You give a QB enough time to make 1...
When did you start that you are done now?
It's one thing to hold the QB accountable for team losses but to completely give the OL a free ride for 2 years is just absurdity. Receivers are...
Nah, he's a hater and games like this are exactly what he's looking for.
Trade Ryan to some team with an actual line, tank to 1-15 and draft a new QB that we can take our frustrations on to. Plan?
We don't deserve better with fans like these.
lol Tannehill's going to ask for a trade.
Love how you omit the line...and the run defense...love your bias.
No...we have stayed around the same standings. I don't think you know what you're talking about.
What is the NFL's policy towards forfeiting? No sense in getting more players injured against these wild animals.
Yeah, because before we drafted him we were playoff regulars.
Can we get on loan the O-lines of the teams that are on bye weeks? They get practice and we can keep our head out of water, everyone wins.
Nah, you're just trying to offset your part and making him feel that way.
Seriously, now is the time to put Moore in and see if he fares better.
I know, and that is the point. Sarcastic, childish, posts like these and the guy calls me juvenile.
And get a life.
Yeah, i'm juvenile. Coming from the guy who with "Blame Wallace" in every other post.
Wake has been quieter than an ugly 15 year old chemistry geek.
How many idiot posts per page are we up to now?
Unless against the Miami Dolphins. Pg 223, Paragraph 2, line 6.
Defense is worst than the offense now.
Ryan gets trampled all game, we make Spiller look like Lynch and Moreno is injured...Wow Buffalo weeks are the worst.
I don't know much hyperbole you guys are going to throw at this game but I've had my fill.
Defense needs their game-changers to wake up, no pun intended. Grimes, we need to lean on you again buddy.
No one saying anything when the chains are moving....despite bad blocking.
I think i'm done with these game day threads.
Holding is on Tannehill.
No ****ing blocking holy ****.
We make Buffalo look good...wow....
There we go guys.
Tannehill makes something out of nothing.
Moreno is this year's Gibson.
RGIII's career is on it's last legs already.
Love you man, you're always positive even when we're laying big ones. Big props.
The feeling is probably mutual.
Not that that's helping any.
Not really, we almost won that game.
It's like getting a worse grade that that "idiot" stoner kid in the class. You just question your own worth at that point.
Might as well forfeit all Buffalo games and use those as extra weeks training weeks because this team cannot do jack against the Bills.
2013 all over again. This OL.....It's like taking your transmission to a bad shop...it works for a few days and then it's broken again.
No, they are not.
scalpel! Ahem...I mean snap the ****ing ball!
No starting QB in their right mind would sign or re-sign here.
You're telling me he can't snap to himself? What kind of QB is this?
Tannehill sucks....put Moore in. :tantrum:
We need some fans that understand football too.
We need this man
You're kidding right? This drive was all on the linesmen.
Bills having revenge for the 70s when we would be invincible against them.
That's a lot of exclamation marks for someone your age.
Why do you think? Oline can't be relied on for jack ****.
Let's go guys!
Dolphins forums...what do you expect?
Nice. D keeping us alive.
I know. Pathetic.
Sure you guys aren't Bills fans? All over EJ's dick....
These ants are our kryptonite, I swear.
R. Williams jersey on...let's go Moreno.
Damn you Carpenter.
D is nowhere to be seen. Gave up 3 points easy.
Give me a break.....
Not impressed o-line....
Nice opening completion!
Such a smart play. Grimes never ceases to impress.
Not so fast..
Get their off off the field now....
Gave up too much on the first run.
Don't even entertain the thought.
Too much to ask for to have Griese cover a Fins game?
Not this Canadian, I have a team brother.
This. Especially considering he's always moving and throwing on the run sometimes. Big arm and good accuracy. I am so hopeful after seeing this...
You know what sucks? In Canada you have half a dozen basic sports channels that play NFL games at 1pm and they're all showing the Pats game...wtf....
There are a plethora of public figures who get into what should be worse debacles but if their stories aren't as "juicy" they get off the hook....

Bills defense is all that we really need to worry about in my opinion. Can't wait to see Moreno take it up the middle for 7 or 8 on these sobs.
Not entirely true. We almost and would have beat them in Miami if not for a last minute sack/fumble. But putting up no points in Buffalo? That's...
Oh god, if they only had a video of the lunchroom incident last year then Ross would have had to sell the team.

Lamar is doing great!
Just got home to cheer my boys on and actually saw an OPI against NE!?! I can't believe it.
