    I'm just trying to distance myself from the travesty that has been the last two weeks, and here's a way! Gloat about how much pure talent you have on your team!

    Pouncey at Center!

    Okay, as much as I feel like NOT celebrating anything or anyone associated with our OL this year...Mike is our man. We actually looked good when he had big Jake to his left but alas...those days are gone. Bright side is that we don't have to start from scratch when we detonate the OL this off-season!

    Wake at DE!

    Wake the Kraken! Surprise, surprise....Who else is feeling unbelievably lucky that we have such a class-act superstar on our D team? Still can't believe it. Hope we can add #91 onto the honor roll one day where it belongs, beside #99 and #54.

    Grimesy at corner!

    Talk about fighting your way into the Pro Bowl! Absolutely on fire this whole year, sign him, extend him, whatever you want to do, DO IT NOW!

    Fields at P!

    So happy for his guy! Has been a busy leg and guardian angel for our offense all year. Great to see he gets recognized for his massive average yardage and hang time.

    I really could care less about the Pro Bowl. Individual stats and awards mean nothing when your team fails.

    I know you are trying to be positive after a tough loss so I will digress.

    Happy for the players, but this does nothing for me as a fan.

    I honestly think only Grimes and Fields deserved it.

    Pouncey is solid... not great... But I guess they do take in like 5 centers so maybe he is the 5th best center in the NFL..

    I can't think of too many other centers i'd take over Mike Pouncey. This was a rough year for the offensive line but that certainly wasn't because of Mike Pouncey not doing his job. He's an emotional person and I think that is why he gets some of the hate he gets. Trust me...we better keep Mike Pouncey on this team. It would be stupid to move him or get rid of him. We could do a lot worse at center.

    Before a new GM? If any moves are made, wouldn't that indicate Ireland will be around another year?

    Sorry, honestly not trying to hijack this thread or anything, I'm just disappointed that's all.

    I won't be watching, I can barely stomach watching yet another playoffs without anything to care about. So that's still 1 playoff game since 2001. 1 playoff game since I was in middle school. And the Dolphins were dominated in it. I'm at the point where I am barely going to watch the Super Bowl unless I go to a party. What's the point, watch two more teams who were able to turn things around and actually give their fans something to cheer about?

    And I have very little hope it will change anytime soon. We're on the level of the Browns, Lions and Bills now. The Bengals haven't won a playoff game since 1990, Chiefs since 1993. I think that ends this year for the Bengals, and certainly possible for KC...but for all we know its possible the Dolphins can have a similar streak. The Bengals drought would be akin to the Dolphins not winning one until 2023...And that isn't entirely out of the realm of possibility. If the Chiefs AND Bengals win next week, only 3 teams will have a longer playoff win drought than Miami - Bills, Browns and Lions. This is the company we're in now.

    To end that tangent, congrats to those 4 players, the only ones who deserve to go. Except I'd have left Pouncey off...nobody on that atrocious O-Line should've been there.

    this was a painful ending to the season. typically it's not a big deal because we're never in it in week 17, plus I now have to face the damn Jets fans I work with.
