    Naples … When you consider that this is a less than average team that displays no heart and is poorly coached, it’s really not that hard to believe.

    i am finally speechless.

    There is no more point to playing Tannehill in this game. We are just going to get him killed.

    it is called good coaching.

    So have we given up over 400 yards in all three games this season?

  5. The Flying Pig says:

    I would keep playing Tanny

  6. finfanrob says:

    Ken says:
    September 27, 2015 at 7:23 pm

    Why? it is just putting him at risk for injury at this point.

    exactly and if he gets hurt and out for a while it gives blowbin more excuse to be back next year

  7. finfanrob says:

    if philbin is back tomorrow i hope the jets make it a 48-7 game

  8. bat says:

    Piggy …Do you think he should be?

    • The Flying Pig says:

      I wanted him gone in the offseason

      Well I wanted harbaugh

      I don’t think it’s a great idea to fire a coach in September
      You basically need to promote a coordinator and I don’t want lazor or Coyle as a coach either

      The oc and do are part of the problem

      If you fire Philbin now, where do you go

      And before some one says anything is better try to remember if you said that for sparano or Cameron

  9. rgs322 says:

    Who should be more embarrassed, this Dolphins team or Washington for losing to us in week 1?

  10. finfanrob says:

    The Flying Pig says:
    September 27, 2015 at 7:26 pm

    I don’t think Philbin gets fired

    no problem. then i look forward to the jets blowing them out

  11. bat says:

    rgs … Washington …This team doesn’t care enough to be embarrassed

  12. bat says:

    Another horrible attempt at a fade … Why bother?

  13. bat says:

    One long one short …Both fail

  14. The Flying Pig says:

    That fucking fade pass
    It’s not supposed to resemble a falling anvil Tanny

    Wtf was that

  15. herdfan says:

    A complete disaster

  16. finfanrob says:


    they are going no were this year with this tool as head coach. so you would rather keep him then to just give someone else a shot.

  17. Ken says:

    Well I have to go smash a TV, kick a cat, yell at the wife and kids. All the usual stuff after a loss only with more intensity. I am out.

  18. D says:

    My god lazor just wants to fucking prove back corner fade is going to work. ROLL HIM THE FUCK OUT LAZOR

  19. Rockphin says:

    So what is the initiation to join the HDS?

  20. finfanrob says:

    The Flying Pig says:
    September 27, 2015 at 7:34 pm

    I don’t know
    Who do you give a shot to?

    i dont know. that cheerleader in the front row looks like she has big brains.

    and yeah a change just for a change. why not. this is a joke. you really want more of this. this team since week 1 has actually gotten worse and it is only week 3. so yeah a change let anyone coach the team

  21. Brian in NY says:

    I don’t think it’s too much to ask Tanny to throw a fucking fade route in the NFL.

  22. CavalierKong says:

    There is no way I’m waking up at 6:30 next Sunday to watch THIS team play.

  23. The Flying Pig says:

    Is this Miko

  24. naplesfan2010 says:

    I’d fire Philbin as soon as I find someone willing to take the job. I’d fire Coyle tonight. I’d think of something to do about Lazor’s inability to figure out how to manage an offense, like demote him and get a real coordinator in there.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      Appearently the lions dc is sitting out the year

      I don’t know if we can sign him
      But that would be worth firing Coyle now

      But it’s not just the defense

      Our offense looks bad
      The whole team looks bad

      I’m at a loss

  25. CavalierKong says:

    I know when you fire a HC in the middle of a season you normally promote a DC or OC. I say fire all 3 and promote a positional coach. Our top 3 coaches are all 1st time at their position and they have all proven they STINK.

    How many times are you going to call a fade with a QB that has shown he CAN’T THROW THAT PASS? How many times are you going to call a defense that has the CB playing 7 yards back on a 3rd and 5 or less and give up a pitch and catch 1st?

    Call the season a loss, bring in some retread HC to finish out the season and get these guys off the Dolphins sidelines.

    • Brian in NY says:

      I thik Lazor was thinking “Fuck it. We’re getting blown out. Let’s practice the fade route Ryan is so shitty at throwing. Maybe he’ll figure it out”

  26. Try Pod says:

    As long as I’ve been on the Philbin is not a head coach bandwagon, I will say you do not fire him until the season is lost. If you do it before then, you’re taking the risk of not being able to get the coach you want, because your message is we are impatient.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      The worst thing to be when shopping for the best candidate is a bad organization

      I just think we might have to take this on the chin
      If they are going to switch gears they need a plan

    • herdfan says:

      3 years isn’t impatient. And it’s not like the team has looked prepared to play in any of the games so far this year.

      • The Flying Pig says:

        Patience may be a bad word
        But no decent candidate wants to come into a toxic situation
        Oakland and Cleveland are struggling to bring in good coaches based on the way they went through HCs

        Firing coaches is part of the nfl culture
        But I do believe that there a perception about the right way to do it

      • Try Pod says:

        I thought about that Herd, bit in the context of one season, what exactly do you lose by waiting another 4 or 5 games to see what happens? Another coach you are interested in may think better of you for doing so.

  27. The Flying Pig says:

  28. The Flying Pig says:

    See guys
    No worries
    Philbin is looking for a magic potion

  29. BoulderPhinfan says:

    another very long year in miami. And this is on Ross. He should have fired philbin. There is a reason not many coaches get a 4th year without playoffs.

  30. finfanrob says:

    The Flying Pig says:
    September 27, 2015 at 7:40 pm

    How do you know you don’t get more next week if you fire Philbin now

    yeah, duh. i mean keeping blowbin we will get more of the same next week. at least some one new there is a chance of changing things. i mean what more proof is needed to know blowbin is just going to bring an unprepared team to the field

  31. Mike E. says:

    I simply have no faith that Philbin can turn this around. Lazor’s system sucks, Coyle can’t get anything out of the talent we have here, and Philbin doesn’t have his team ready to play. All 3 of those things are difficult to overcome.

    • BoulderPhinfan says:

      the problem is Ross. We had this shitty season last year. We have another long year as fans because ross didn’t have the balls to get rid of the idiot philbin last year.

      He said we need to get better and we didn’t last year. Fuck Ross.

  32. finfanrob says:

    wow some of you guys. so, tanny sucks but dont blame the o line cause he has .3 seconds to throw the ball. but dont fire philblow cause it is his coordinators that suck not him. like he isnt the one in charge.

    • BoulderPhinfan says:

      Tanny needs a perfect line to play well. He’s not tom brady who can make a couple of fuckin rookies look good.

      • The Flying Pig says:

        Which is why Tanny’s problems should not be ignored

        The rest of the team has to be great
        But not Tanny
        I don’t know what kind of philosophy that is

  33. Brian in NY says:

    If the Dolphins are going to fire anyone it will likely come during the bye week.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      Would make a lot more sense
      And the bye week is really the Wildcard here

      It gives the team a little cushion to get ready under a new hc

  34. Brian in NY says:

    I don’t think Lazor’s system sucks. I think it’s a combination of a subpar OL and poor execution. Has the playcalling been bad at times? Yes, but I think if we had a solid OL we’d be seeing different results on the offensive side of the ball.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      I don’t really like the system
      It’s just way to finesse for me
      But all those factors make it worse

    • Try Pod says:

      I think Randy would say the Oline is not as bad as they’re made it to be, and that bad decisions by others males them look so. Add much add I hate to say it, put Tannehill on NE and Brady here, and the outcomes would likely be different from what they have been.

  35. Brian in NY says:

    Not only din’t he have the balls to fire him, but he gave him a one year extension as well.

  36. BoulderPhinfan says:

    fuckin perfect. who cares at this point

    Adam Beasley @AdamHBeasley
    And now Mike Pouncey is hurt.

  37. BoulderPhinfan says:

    Ross should have asked himself this last year. If I fire philbin will any other team hire him as a HC?

    We all know what the answer to that is. Its NO.

  38. getterdone says:

    Sports Science….glad we have coaches & a FO that is so technologically advanced.

    Now learn what football 101 is all about you stupid FUCKS!
    Most horrid coaching, game planning & undisciplined team I’ve ever seen!!!

    Total Embarrassment to well meaning paying fans!

  39. getterdone says:

    The time to fire Philbin & the coordinators is now! Grow a testicle ROSS!
    Don’t ever tell me it’s too early in the season….I dare anyone say that promoted assistants would do worse in the interim!!!!

  40. Rhino says:

    So, in looking ahead to the draft… who exactly are we “sucking” for?? Maybe we’ll be the first team to take an OG with the first overall pick. 😦

  42. getterdone says:

    F**kin Home Opener and the team looked like they do every week….Like they just arrived for a funeral….their own! SMH!

  43. finfanrob says:

    to compare anything to the cheats is on fair. we all know how their oline gets away with holding.

    and i am not defending tanny but he is by far the worst player on the field.

    and brady on this team, with this coaching staff. yeah he would be a bigger joke

  44. Mike E. says:


    It’s obvious that Ross likes Joe Philbin as a person. It has obviously clouded his judgement of him as a Head Coach. I don’t think Joe will survive this season, and I do believe if we continue to play poorly against the Jets, someone is getting fired, whether it’s Coyle, Lazor, or Philbin, or all 3. The season will be nearly over, and due to the fact that Philbin has nothing on his resume that dictates he deserves to stay, it could be it for him.

  45. getterdone says:


    Had a young lady watching the game with me, & she has very limited football knowledge….she kept asking me, why do they not run the ball, why do they subject their QB to pass from the shotgun every down when they know the other team is gunning for him and they can’t stop the pass rush???

    I said, welcome to the worst coaching in the NFL & likely all of college football too.

    Football 101 is meaningless with this troupe of clowns!!!

  46. finfanrob says:

    I dare anyone say that promoted assistants would do worse in the interim!!!!


    that is what i am saying. like could an interim get a teal less prepared then they were today. and i am saying it is week 3 who knows maybe n interim will get lucky and something will happen this year. to think leave blockjaw in there longer is going to make things change is just idiotic

    • getterdone says:

      We’ve seen interim coaches fare well before….with a team with less talent……
      This band of idiots don’t know how to coach in the NFL….I don’t give a fuck if they win 5-7 more games….they are clueless in preparing a NFL team!

  47. Try Pod says:

    Tim is smart to not be here. I agree with much of the sentiment here, but there is vast overstatement and reaction going on right now. Which is fine- I’m all for venting.

  48. getterdone says:

    Try Pod says:
    September 27, 2015 at 8:10 pm
    A little reactionary, eh?

    Not at all….do you want to see this week in and week out? Do you honestly think the WR coach would do worse calling plays? The LB coach calling the defense?
    Rizzi as HC?

    Those guys would be better and no worse than what Philbin is running with right now FFS!

    • Try Pod says:

      I have been seeing this week in and week or for 3 years- what else you got?

      • getterdone says:

        We all have Try, so that’s my point….what else we got is better than what we currently have coaching….it’s pathetic at best!

      • Try Pod says:

        And I submit we gain more by waiting until season is lost than we do be throwing in the towel now.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      I’m not sure those guys are any better
      We just haven’t seen them yet

      Besides they are adopting all the problems we already have

      I think the real question is who is best to fix it
      And really who is best to accept the consequences of it

      If we hire an interim coach they are basically the walking dead

      If you fix the play calling (which I hate too)
      You still have a host of other problems

      If you fix the game prep, you still have more problems

      I really think part of the problems are the design of the team
      And that’s not going to fixed with an interim coach
      You need an offseason for that

  49. finfanrob says:


    i do care if they win 5-7 games with these idiots. i dont want that. with blowbin in charge i want 1-15 if he last the year. at least let the next regime start out with high draft pics

  50. Mike E. says:


    I think the season is not flushed yet. On the other hand, left in the incapable hands of the current staff, it could be very shortly. I don’t want that.

    • Try Pod says:

      Is not- but I don’t want to tell the next coach I hire that I am unwilling to see something through, or the commitment I made to the current coach.

  51. getterdone says:

    I’m sick of Philbin’s blank face staring into space…..his team reflects his pussified demeanor!

  52. finfanrob says:


    you call this venting, i just call it another normal dolphin season

  53. The Flying Pig says:

    To me
    The problem for Ross IMO is losing the fan base
    This being the home opener and getting killed is a problem

    I don’t think keeping or firing a Philbin now is going to make or break the season

  54. The Flying Pig says:

  55. finfanrob says:

    Try Pod says:
    September 27, 2015 at 8:22 pm

    And I submit we gain more by waiting until season is lost than we do be throwing in the towel now.

    well yeah, i mean like next week maybe they will just lose 35-14. huge gains

  56. Mike E. says:


    I think it sends a message that this will not be tolerated. They have too much invested to let this season slip away completely.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      I hear you on that message but to what end

      It doesn’t mean the next guy doesn’t fail
      You don’t need to send that message
      No one wants to suck
      Some people aren’t good enough not to

      The plan needs to be to get the best people in place
      So you do whatever you need to do to make that happen

      Even if it means Philbin is the walking dead this season

      I do think their are unwritten rules about how you treat coaches and which organizations take ones you can count on

  57. getterdone says:

    Three Stooges = Philbin, Lazor, & Coyle!

  58. getterdone says:

    No Fire, No Emotion, No Clue = Not many wins…..gets used to it!

  59. finfanrob says:

    getterdone says:
    September 27, 2015 at 8:26 pm

    Three Stooges = Philbin, Lazor, & Coyle!

    nope. the three stooges had talent

  60. finfanrob says:

    ‘Miko Grimes was indeed arrested.’

    well at least she showed more emotion then the rest of the team

  61. Mike E. says:


    This might be the first good move Ross will have made since he got here.

  62. Mike E. says:


    Heck, you might be right on your angle, but I’ll be surprised if we get hung out to dry next week that Joe and Co. keep their jobs.

    • Try Pod says:

      I certainly don’t claim to be right- but when emotions are raw or is not a good time to make these type of decisions. I think he talks with leadership and the have a specific benchmark in mind.

  63. The Flying Pig says:

    If the Dolphins get killed next week
    It will be great
    We will know it’s over if we lose 2 “home” games

    What I worry about is hovering around .500 all season and doing that flirtation with the playoffs in. November and them missing out

    And Honestly I think that is where we are heading

    We pave been beaten badly by the bills under Philbin before and still finished at .500
    Same with playing in tight games with losing teams

  64. herdfan says:

    I don’t think any sane person could fault Ross for firing Philbin and company after 3 years if they watched the last 3 games.

  65. ocalahowie says:

    Relax everyone
    I had us 0 and 3 right know and we still end up 10-6 but instead of losing to Washington it’s the Texans we are going to lose to, yet again
    Oh, and we will beat the Jets next Sunday
    GO PHINS!!!

    • The Flying Pig says:

      Not the texans
      Not the fest game!

      Wtf Howie
      You had us going 0-3 and finishing 10-6???
      That’s pretty bold

      Do we make the playoffs?

  66. finfanrob says:

    Try Pod says:
    September 27, 2015 at 8:38 pm

    I certainly don’t claim to be right- but when emotions are raw

    how are they raw. this has been going on for 3 years. they are well scabbed over. it is just time for a change.

    i just dont get how anyone after see the last 3 years and these 3 games thinks doing more of the same ole same ole will some how equate to a turnaround

  67. Mike E. says:


    I know there is certainly emotion behind my thinking, but there’s also a lot of logic. After playing lackluster football for 2 games, to come home for the home opener, and not only lose, but really not compete against a division rival like we did, I think that’s a sure sign the coach does not have this team.

  68. BoulderPhinfan says:

    why is it that all the players we let go, shine on another team. Fuckin chris hogan roasted jamar taylor today for a TD. Chris hogan!!!

  69. Mike E. says:


    What are your thoughts on Philbin, or Coyle or Lazor (or all 3) being fired?

  70. finfanrob says:

    i will say this loss isnt as exciting as last weeks. at least after last weeks loss i had a pig telling me off. LOL

  71. finfanrob says:

    to bad impersonating a head coach isnt crime

  72. getterdone says:

    Philbin coming to Miami is a 1st time HC who wasn’t even a real OC…McCarthy called the games….Joe learned nothing! GB hasn’t missed him what so ever.

    Coyle coming to Miami, also a 1st time DC, was a DB coach that Cincy didn’t care to keep. Bengals are better on defense now.

    Lazor coming to Miami as a 1st time OC, was QB coach in Philly….the QB he coached got traded for a hobbled Bradford. Eagles pulled together today for an impressive road win.

    FACT: We have 3 of our top coaches all at the same time, green 1st timers in Miami.
    Folks, show me where that’s worked for any NFL franchise???

  73. finfanrob says:


    you said ‘game’ pretty sure what we saw was not a game.

  74. Ken says:

    Head coaching candidates, lets a start a list.

    1. Jim Schwartz, former HC at Detroit. Has good history with Suh.
    2. Doug Marrone. Buffalo’s rise from mediocrity started with him. He overplayed his hand when he opted of his contract.

    • BoulderPhinfan says:

      Sean Payton maybe. John harbaugh maybe.

    • getterdone says:

      I’d take Mike Shula over Philbin in a heartbeat…..I’ve said it before…..if I’m Ross, I bring the Shula name back to Miami to fill seats.
      He could then hire the best DC he could find, likely even from the Panthers defensive asst’s….their D is not bad at all.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      Marrone in interesting
      But we need some one who can beat the cheats

  75. wyoming85 says:

    Mike E
    It’s been a fish or cut bait year for the coaching staff since the end of last year for me!

    I just don’t know if they will have enough fingers left to cut bait at this rate?

  76. Ken says:

    I think both Payton and John Harbaugh have enough cred with their respective organizations that they will ride out the rough patch right now. I don’t see them as viable candidates.

  77. BoulderPhinfan says:

    Once again dolphin fans are asking who to hire as HC in September. I think I’m gonna get sick

  78. Ken says:

    Mike or Kyle Shannahan are possibilities I think the son more so than the father.

  79. BoulderPhinfan says:

    I wouldn’t mind marone.

  80. New Age says:

    I don’t want to see another craptacular year but I agree with Piggy. If we have to see another 1-15 team to get a top coach, then I’m all for it. We barely beat a dysfunctional Redskins team and lost to the awful Jags. Our defense is probably the worst in the NFL. Backups are eating it alive. Our offense is even worse than under Sherman.

    I’d like to fire the garbage today, but we have no shot of a top HC right now anyways so just laugh it off. I would fire Coyle tonight and get Schwartz. Tell him whatever he has to hear and get that defense fixed. Ross is paying way too much money and I want to see Suh terrorize someone besides Coyle.

  81. BoulderPhinfan says:

    With our top 10 pick we should go LT. Fuckin Albert and hickey for bringing him here

    • Ken says:

      The move to bring Albert here was the right one. He was a pro bowl caliber LT. He had a fluke injury last year that could have happened to anyone. He got his leg rolled up on. I am not going to kill the organization for that move when there are plenty of other moves to kill them for.

  82. New Age says:

    This says it all about our coaches. From writer Chris Wesseling, “We’d like to know why Matthews has spent the past two seasons on the trade block and in Joe Philbin’s doghouse after flashing playmaking ability with 11 catches for 120 yards and a pair of touchdowns against the Buccaneers in Week 10 of the 2013 season.”

    This coaching staff is awful and I don’t think Tannehill will recover honestly. Too many OCs, too much to learn, no deep ball or desire to throw one, another system to learn. We will have a top 5 pick. We might need to get QB.

  83. Ken says:

    Looking at the college ranks I am a big fan of Gus Malzhan.

  84. Try Pod says:

    OK, have your lynching. But there are more potential negatives for a coaching change now than after mathematical elimination, IMhumblestO.

    OK, have your lynching. But there are more potential negatives for a coaching change now than after mathematical elimination, IMhumblestO.

    what is that. that the jets may beat time 54-7. i mean didnt you see this team, the game, the first 3 games. this team cant be much worse. so what if they hire some nobody and he goes 0-13 they get the top pick. i dont want blowbin hanging around and going on some meaningless 3 game winning streak or something like that and ross keeping him around.

    • Try Pod says:

      And letting him go definitely changes what?

      • Try Pod says:

        And what does the next coach we go aftet think about it? Whether you wanted him or not, don’t you think fisher turned us down because of, in part, our poor handling of Sparano/Harbaugh and a reputation of not being a well run organization? Who else do we not know of that turned us down?

  86. finfanrob says:

    Try Pod says:
    September 27, 2015 at 9:28 pm

    And letting him go definitely changes what?

    really????? it changes he isnt here. it changes there is some hope. you really think keeping him round there is hope.

    • Try Pod says:

      OK- hope springs eternal. You’ve convinced me. Let him go right now, and we’ll be improved immediately. Addition by subtraction. In the history of the nfl, changes like this always improve a team. It’s why the Raiders are always so good. “OFF WITH HIS HEAD!”

    If you read up, you’ll know what my thoughts are. But some want blood now, though I think there is fresh pain involved with this.

    you do know that is a bit arrogant. that some of us are just emotional and not thinking with a clear head but you are the one who is calm cool and collective and thinking every thing thru. the rest of us are a bunch of 13 year old emotional kids.

    i for one have been calling for joe to go……hey that is it, the fins can suck with the mantra joe to go…….any ways been calling for him to go midway thru a season and a half ago. but if that is me being emotional then i am

    • Try Pod says:

      You act like we speak in a vacuum- i, along with others, wanted Joe to blow with Ireland, and each successive year since. But there exists virtually no benefit to letting someone go before elimination. Sorry I’m being so arrogant.

  88. finfanrob says:


    i am not saying to go after a coach. just saying to get rid of joe, promote from with if if you need too. but just thinking keeping buffonbin and thinking something good is going to happen is just the definition of insanity

  89. BoulderPhinfan says:

    does it make a difference to let him go now or later? Maybe we attract a better coach if we allow philbin to be mathematically eliminated before we fire him. Or let him finish the season. All it means is we get a better draft spot next year.

    I just can stand the sight of him on the sideline anymore.

  90. BoulderPhinfan says:

    yes his injury was an accident. But the injury that kept him out of this game wasn’t. he was injured often in KC as well. He’s played half a season for us and without him this team is below average.

    OK- hope springs eternal. You’ve convinced me. Let him go right now, and we’ll be improved immediately.

    nope, and dont put words where i never did. i never ever said they would be improved. but i do know doing the same thing over and over and over and failing doesnt mean if you do it again things will change. so why not change something and see what happens

    • Try Pod says:

      Perhaps I did put words in your mouth- but that is the implication; that somehow there is a benefit to letting him go now as opposed to week.. 10, or whenever it is no longer possible to make the playoffs.

  92. New Age says:

    I want Philbin and staff here all season now that I think about it. Of course I also want the next coach to have a top 5 pick in every round too so I might be biased.

    You act like we speak in a vacuum

    nope. just pointing out what i am saying isnt some irrational emotional reaction like you are saying some on here are having. i have wanted this for a while so to think i am just upset about the loss isnt fair. hell i am not even upset about it. last week yeah, but i am not tonight in the least. i had absolutely no hope going into the game. i am not upset in the least

    • Try Pod says:

      You are not the only one that wants the execution- you may be calm and rational, but you know as well as I that not all can say that.

    You have to go after a coach eventually- what does firing Joe after three games day to potential candidates?

    aahhh, maybe if you drive this team into the ground. and you are a bumbling fool you get fired.

    what does keeping him say to a potential candidate. come here. dont worry about things. be average at best or a failure and you will keep your job or 4 years no matter what

    • Try Pod says:

      That’s one interpretation- I’m hard pressed to think that everyone, particularly potential coaches, only get that out of it.

  95. finfanrob says:


    but that is what i am saying why wait till eliminated from the playoffs. i get just giving an interim coach the job makes the odds of anything good happening slim to none. but with keeping the buffoon there imo the odds go from slim to none to none

  96. finfanrob says:


    and i have a hard time any coach cares. these are nothing but a bunch of egotist. they arent really going to make a decision based on how the prior coach was handled. they all think they know what to do, and think the are going to be successful. no coach looks at what the team does before and thinks, if i fail they will do that to me. they all think they will be successful

  97. Try Pod says:

    I didn’t say this to be contrary, or to engage in a long debate about it. As I said, I don’t think I am more right than someone else with a differing opinion. I was only saying that people, particularly here, get way upset and react strongly, particularly to losses. I hope Ross is more analytical and less reactionary than we are after such a poor showing.

  98. finfanrob says:

    so the Detroit d line lost the best defensive player ever in the history of the game but yet they still look better then the fins d line

    • Try Pod says:

      Yeah- was not for that signing from the beginning, though after 3 games I’m not going to say it was a total bust, either.

  99. finfanrob says:

    i think Websters is changing the definition of bust to just a picture of suh
    (see try, now that comment was just all emotion. i get it is too early to call him a bust)

    I didn’t say this to be contrary, or to engage in a long debate about it.

    hmmm ok, i was enjoying the debate. i didnt think you were doing anything contrary, just thought we were having a conversation with two different opinions

  101. ocalahowie says:

    10-6 but no playoffs
    Pats take the east and 11-5 teams make it

  102. finfanrob says:

    yep others here do get we do here act strongly. i wanted joe gone at half time. but i get it, if i was ross i would have to sit and talk with others and their opinion about what is best.

    i on the other hand are just on my sofa watching a game i dont have to think things thru and gather all the facts. i can just go with my gut feelings

  103. finfanrob says:


    they are just scared i met the hulk out of my basement

  104. Try Pod says:

    You were right, btw – I was a bit arrogant with my thoughts on others emotions clouding their objectivity. I apologize to whomever I may have offended. I get full of myself sometimes.

  105. Mike E. says:


    While I understand your feelings that other potential candidates might think we acted rashly, I just don’t see it that way. I would say it’s clear that the team had an idea of where they should be, hoped Philbin would be capable of getting us there, and failed. They made a huge investment this year, will be severely capstrung next year, and want to try and save the season. I really don’t think it’s rash, and also don’t think any potential candidates would view it that way. That’s how I see it.

    • Try Pod says:

      I admit that is a reasonable assessment. With our history, I’m not sure others will give us the same benefit of the doubt. I think we have to prove more and stick longer to try to build up some good will.

  106. finfanrob says:


    no biggie. it really isnt. we are all just fans. we all want the same thing. and besides it wasnt like you were being an ass or jerk about it.

  107. Mike E. says:


    I would think if they don’t want to come here now, they won’t want to come here after the season is over either. Next year may be worse than this year.

  108. Try Pod says:

    I’m going to guess Miko lost her job (radio show with Omar) after her arrest.

  109. finfanrob says:

    ok, i guess i am done. i can keep looking for the news joe is gone anymore.

    try, again good convo and no worries here with me. we are all a bit arrogant, it is what us men do.

    goodnight all

  110. Mike E. says:

    Goodnight FFR – Ya fucking troublemaker

  111. Mike E. says:

    Miko should have never had that job. She’s a low class-ass.

  112. olddolphan says:

    JUST GOT BACK FROM THE WORST DOLPHIN HOME GAME I’ve ever attended since year one in 1966!! –WHAT an abortion of a product Steve Ross put on the football field for the home fans!!
    It’s the FIRST TIME I’ve left a Dolphins game in the FIRST QUARTER IN MY LIFE- – And I was far from the only one!! – – Hundreds of Dolfans were leaving the stadium as the 1st quarter ended!! – – Funniest of all, not too far from my car, a Fins fan was arriving late with his lady friend and I told them to go home, Miami had already lost!! – – And they proceeded to get in a big argument (she wanted to leave; he wanted to see the rest of it). –DON’T know who won the argument.
    Will tell all of you MORE about the sights and sounds of the game and pregame tomorrow. But I’l NEVER FORGET the sight of all the expensive seats ($1,000.00 per ticket per game AND UP) on Miami’s side between the 20 yard lines) being 80 PER CENT VACANT AT KICKOFF!! –By late in the 1st quarter they were almost half full. But a little 2-minute shower hit and, bingo, they were 90 per cent vacant!! – – Indeed, close to half of the now 64,000 seats (formerly 75,000 before the “improvements”) were dead empty the entire first quarter!!
    AND IF YOU THOUGHT THE STADIUM WAS EMPTY TODAY, wait until the next home game in October against the Texans. ALL the “F.U. ers”) will be able to sit most anywhere we want on that day!!
    CAN’T WAIT TO HEAR Jahndoh’s and Jetsfan’s reasons to keep Philbin now!! Had Ross fired Philbin after year 2 we’d be in year 2 of the recovery plan right now. CLEARLY good cases can be made to fire both Philbin and Coyle on Monday. But nothing fails quite like falure itself, sooo-o-o I expect Ross to keep them around a while longer. Remember, Ross did NOT fire Sparano after he started a season 0-7!!!!
    Drove 600 miles round trip to see one quarter of football. I would have said “PRO” football but that would be a lie!! –What the Dolphins played was NOT PRO FOOTBALL!! –I think I need a beer!

  113. D says:

    I’m sorry, but even if a back corner fade SHOULD be something he can throw. If it’s not something he can do now, quit fucking around with calling plays that aren’t working, call ones that do.

    When he scrambled or rolls out we usually have a successful play, and even if it didn’t mean we won a couple extra scores would have been nice. Not getting shut out from the 2 on 4 straight shitty cslls would have been better. Overall might not mean much, but would mean lazor doesn’t keep doing the same stupid shit over and over.

    If you guys can’t blame lazor for a good part of this shit you’re giving a pass to a big chunk of it problems.

  114. Try Pod says:

    Goodnight all. This looks to be a long season. And a short one, too.

  115. BoulderPhinfan says:

    that whole off season to have this type of team? Wow. We have all been tricked by the phins FO.

    • olddolphan says:

      NOT ALL OF US HAVE BEEN TRICKED, Rick!! –Wherever Ross-Philbin & Tannenbaum go, disaster is sure to follow!! – – The ultimate cure is for Ross to sell the team, take his profits, and go back to New York and play his real estate prowess into billions more! –Breaking up the “New Trifecta” would be a good thing.

  116. Mike E. says:

    No two ways about it, this has been a HUGE disappointment. I feel like the biggest sucker, I buy in every year to their bullshit. I would understand if it was just the O-line, but really, it’s everything. This team just never looks prepared.

    • olddolphan says:

      That’s because they AREN’T PREPARED, mIKE!!–PHILBIN’S FINS have had a halftime lead in only 18 of the 51 games he has been head coach of this franchise!! And in the 1st quarter of the 3 games this season, Miami has gained just over 100 yards net total offense while our opponents have racked-up over 400 yards total offense in the 1st quarter, according to Miami’s radio announcers today!! -BOY were they livid!!

    • olddolphan says:

      ALSO, Mike and GDP; Remember my philosophy of “SHOW ME!” –Until they SHOW ME THEY CAN DO IT ON THE FOOTBALL FIELD, I don’t accept as fact that we’ve moved ahead and gotten better. Believe it when you see it, and NOT before!

  117. Mike E. says:

    It’s toxic OD, no doubt.

  118. olddolphan says:

    TOMORROW is a better day. And we’re one day closer to Philbin’s firing. I’m OUT.
