    right when green didn't get up I had the gut feeling we shouldn't have signed him. I just couldn't say anything then.......

    lol....right?

    I mean could he possibly regret it as much as the team now does?

    I was unable to find anything concerning his guaranteed money...this is about all I could find:

    # 2009: $1.2 million
    # 2010: $1.65 million
    # Total: $2.85 million

    and he could earn 3 million in incentives..

    I'm guessing that he had to have gotten at least a half million guaranteed...

    If any of us got a job, worked for a month or two and totally sucked at it, got fired and walked away with that much money......what the hell would we regret? lol

    I don't think that sounded bitter. I thought it sounded honest. Not everybody fits everywhere.

    Basically this job was too hard for him and he would rather have an easier time on a worse team. What a competitor.

    I know that not everyone fits everywhere but he is playing football. For lack of a better saying it is 'a man's game'. Discipline tends to win ball games last time I checked. See ya man.

    The fit goes both ways. Acknowledging that fact doesn't mean you're crying. It just means you recognized that. I expect that the Dolphins may regret having signed him too.

    I don't think he's bad mouthing the team. I just think he's saying it was a bad fit.

    Fins were best to cut thier losses when they did-I'm sure he don't regret that signing bonus he walked with.

    I have a feeling he didn't get that much of a signing bonus because it was clear that he was coming in to compete for a job, and not to automatically be the starter

    Seemed to me from his interview he just didn't like the discipline and hard work here. He prefers a laid back, easy does it program like AZ or 49'ers. Mike Singletary must have mellowed BIG TIME in his "older" years.

    I think it says it all when your mother says you need to play with greater enthusiasm.
    What was the bigger mistake? Him signing with the Dolphins or the Dolphins signing him?

    I don't know.....

    He is supposed to be a professional and all. I agree he wasn't a good a fit cause he just didn't want to put in the work to be on this football team.

    Or maybe he just wanted to see Coach Singletary's butt I don't know.:lol:

    Doesn't bother me that he's bitter or that he felt it wasn't a good fit. What made me happy about this story is that he's happy to be gone because the Dolphins weren't "laid back" enough. Maybe I'm in the minority here, but the thought of my football team and the moniker "laid back" being used in the same sentence would make me want to puke and switch teams.

    A laid back work place breeds laziness and red bottom lines...

    A laid back set of parents breeds spoiled brats...

    A laid back approach to one's faith breeds a loss of it...

    A laid back football team breeds underachieving, overconfident, untested, inconsistent losers.

    Eric Green leaving the Dolphins is a landmark event folks. Not because of who he was, but because of what the Dolphins have become.

    I would venture a guess, he was let go for poor decision making, and perhaps a bit "slow" in reactionary skills.

    Is he serious? He didn't like Miami because the workouts and such were too hard for him? Man up, dude, you're in the NFL.

    I thought for a second that this as about Trent Green. :lol: At least he took things well and didn't cry when the Phins had to let him go.

    Well, at least he didn't make it as far as standing on our sideline during a Pats game, and wishing he was standing on the other side. :shifty:

    That's a good point. It's all about finding the right 53.

    My only contention was that he didn't sound bitter. The ones that sounded bitter were those here attacking him like he had insulted the team.

    Sounds like an "I" guy, rather than a "Team" guy which is being built here. Go 2008 AFC Champs!

    Note to the Dolphins front office:

    We are now 0-2 for success with guys named Eric Green. Please don't sign another Eric Green.

    Agreed. I'm surprised any team allows gum chewing in team meetings like Green was complaining that the Dolphins didn't. Where else can you got to work for hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars and be allowed to chew gum in meetings?
