    the poor house
    I used to have a lot of joy watching the dolphins from 94 to 2006 and even in the year we went 1-15 I felt as that we would become a respectable franchise again.

    After the last 4 years I don't enjoy the team as much as I use too. now it would be easier to change teams but I have no intentions of doing that so with yesterday's loss I feel sick about where this team is headed. To make matters worse the Jets are the front runner for Harbaugh and the media is hoping this happens because they despise the Miami DOLPHINS . we are the only team in the afc east that gets snubbed in every facet .

    what can be done to get us to respectability ? it isn't staying with Philbin and sure as hell isn't staying in this 7-9 8-8 rut.

    the thing we need to hope for is that the Jets don't beat us and they get a top notch head Coach because If they do and we get another hack then we will be stuck in the cellar of the East for the next 5 or 6 years.

    I say this because there is no razzmatazz with this club . I am so sick of the Patriots and the Bills are already better then we are at the moment.

    I wished we could stop wearing the all white uniforms I like the old logo and the old teal jerseys the new uniforms have a curse on us .

    when was the last time we really had a great offense and defense at the same time ?


    I guess I am really depressed knowing that that Patriots are going to win the afc east for the 7 th time in a row.


    by the way who was the idiot that got into a scruff with the Pat's player who had just gotten a 15 yard penalty ? those players were broken apart but the dolphin player ran back and mouthed off and he got a 15 yard penalty .

    The last time we had a great offense and defense at the Dave time? Probably '72 or '83.

    not pointing this at you, by why would it be easier to change teams? what true football fan ever changes allegiances? I couldn't if I tried. 30 years of rooting for Miami, I'd have to give up football altogether before I could switch teams.

    I just hope we set our aspirations (and be we, I mean dolphins organization) than Rex Ryan. yes, he's an improvement over Philbin, but he should only be our fallback choice if we can't land someone better.

    Gotta hold the line brother. Would you have been happy to be a Bills fan in the 90's to get there year after year and blow it every time? Take the Falcons here for example, they were one play away from the big game two seasons ago and have stunk it up since and are about to hit the reset button too. My point is, every year there are 31 disgruntled fanbases.

    I have no idea if this guy is a troll or not. But I find it hysterical that anyone who criticizes the Fins and esp their very avg QB is labeled a troll. I get it...it's a way to stifle criticism by switching the debate from the merits of the post to the posters bona fides as a fan. Some of you are more critical of the fans who root for the Fins than you are of the players and coaches who suck. The Fins aren't very good. No fan here is responsible for it. It's intellectual cowardice to attack fans that are critical.

    No real Phins fan points to the uniform as a reason we lose. No real Phins fan refers to the primary color as "teal".

    I'd be happy with going back to the old uniforms. Did not like the smiley dolphin we had before whatever this is we have now. He wants to change because he feels they are cursed. There have been curses discussed in sports as long as sports have been around. You might be young to realize that.

    With the new emphasis on constant offense, and the Dolphins seemingly perpetually stuck, it really is looking like a possibility.
    Just due to the rule changes I find myself enjoying the games ~30% less.

    What concerns me is we never manage to have 2 pieces of the puzzle at the same time. Defense goes south when offense looks good, Offense goes south when defense looks good. We seems to often have both pieces going bad offense and defense, it's very disheartening for fans to stay loyal to a team that constantly hurts you...

    I used to root for teams, now with Free agency it's not the same I root for players mostly. Sadly not anyone on this team but wake that I can hang my hat on and say I care about... Man I miss Zach Thomas... There was a guy you could root for!

    I think that was his long winded way of saying you better hope you don't start losing the passion for this franchise.
    I kinda get what he means in that respect. It gets depressing and old cheering and giving my time and energy all season...just for the same result.

    JimToss, Just jumping in here, but Tannehill continues to digress. Every week it appears he didn't watch any tape of the opponent. Lazor can't seem to come up with a game plan that Tannehill can follow. DB's and CB's are over matched every week. With the rules the way they are these days, pass interference could be used as a consistent tool to sustain drives. Can you imagine the things that Dan Marino sees up in the Press Box and with these rules, how many million yards would he have thrown for? Tannehill runs well, but he doesn't make the decision fast enough for this League and his comprehension of defenses is deplorable for a 3rd year starter. I contend that he did not spend enough time learning from Matt Moore. I have shaken my head on a weekly basis this year watching the 3 and Outs. Stephen Ross will hopefully attend a Football camp this off season, in an effort to gain valuable information on running a division winning NFL team.

    just to clear up something that I omitted and I was saying but I accidently deleted it but I was saying we don't want another great coach come to the AFC EAST unless there are two great coaches but a great coach that goes to the Bills OR jets and we will be in trouble and that is what I don't want at all.
