Separate names with a comma.
Ummm...what "talent" did we purge in this deal?
No idea how #1 priority ISNT the OL
Ross having to sell is WAY too good to be true. Im not taking the bait.
If it ended up being Vance Joseph...
I'll believe it when I see it....
What an embarrasment
2. Never expected they would. Was hoping Id be pleasantly surprised by Harbaugh or even Pederson.
One question has nothing to do with the...
I dont have a great answer for you. Definitely not enough targets to make an impact, but the offense and especially the QB position was a disaster...
I know its the CFL so who knows, but Im from Ottawa and follow the CFL and Ottawa RedBlacks closely. Dedmon is a legit return man. Ottawa easily...
I honestly dont know if my fandom can take this hire.
Hideous. Yet not as bad as our actual unis lol
This feels like an underwhelming hire. But maybe thats just cause I was ready for a Harbaugh.
One of the Harbaugh Brothers.
Please and thank you.
Just use the throwbacks as our regular unis and call it a day. Pretty fn simple.
The original logo is the best. this new one is trash. The color schem is trash. God I hate our current uniforms and logo. Its not the only reason,...
They need a hell of alot more than a tweak.
We are so bad at LB I wouldnt be surprised if we spend $$$$ in FA AND draft one in the 1st
If Cutler has a big year, we won't be in a position to draft either of those guys.
Maybe its new PSG, but I don't see why this is a sky is falling injury. Yes, it hurts, Lippett has been very good. But we have decent depth ay CB....
Pretty sure that's fair.
I like Boulware quite a bit, but in the 2nd is a huge reach, imo.
My opionion...if GB wins.
Sat. 430pm: Hou/Oak
Sat. 800pm: NYG/GB
Sun. 100pm: Mia/Pit
Sun. 400pm: Det/Sea
But wait...the Miami Dolphins are the worst team in the playoffs.
I know this because every single
talking head has been saying in since Saturday.
I'd like to welcome everyone, especially all the Tannehill haters, to Matt Moore Football.
Line is now Miami +1.5. Pretty big swing.
Everyone is pounding the Cards.
I love the throwbacks. But it's probably because of my dislike of the new unis. Hate the lack of orange. Don't like the navy.
New unis would be...
I'd wager a good chunk of change that the 6th seed will have 10 wins.
If we win today, I think we get to 10 wins.
The problem I see is, I think...
I feel pretty confident 10-6 gets us in.
Im less confident we get to 10 wins though.
The original post is a tad too doom and gloomy even for me. I think the most likely scenario is a 2-2 finish. Unfortunately that wont get us to...
This franchise has "earned the right" to have fans worry about a December dive.
I can only speak for myself here, but me agreeing that we could be in for a December dive, isn't about disregarding what this team has...
Sorry bro, I didn't see that post.
I wasn't bashing your post, Just wanted to show the kind of degenerate I am...:tongue:
Agreed. I also didn't take that Pittsburgh win seriously at the time.
I'll also take some OL depth and TE. Please and thank you.
Good point. And one that hasn't been brought up yet.
But how damn fun is it to have truly meaningful games this late in the season and feel like...
Yes we are. By less than FG. Which means Vegas thinks Arizona is the slightly better team. Which means nothing, just pointing it out.
I think we need to go 3-1 to get in.
Lets just say we beat Arizona and the Jets, although both could go either way. That means we have to beat...
Yesterday's loss really had nothing to do with Tannehill. The defense got torched. And wasn't even competitive.
I'm not pro or anti Tannehill. I'm...
I also agree with this sentiment. All the member bashing was one of the reason I took a long hiatus from here. I got caught up in it and was...
Unfortunately, I agree with Monst.
But mostly because I've just come to expect it.
Bingo. Turning point of the season. This team was spinning their tires until that happened. I believe it made this team buy in. It made me buy...
In a word...no.
Lets worry about catching one of those 3 AFC West teams. That is our realistic ticket to the postseason.
While I haven't posted much lately Ihave been lurking.
And while I mostly agree with Monst's post, I have to say the last 2 weeks (Its only been...
It looks OK. But there is a very decent chance we end the season on a 4 game losing skid.
Rushing yards 77
Every time I come back to this site and read the nonsense that is written....I remember why I don't frequent this place as much as I used to.
Until his career ends in 3 years.
My gf asks me this all the time.
And the truth is...I have no good answer to give. None.
I think he fits way better in a 34 defense.
Looks like it could be the ugliest stadium in the league (or even in the history of stadiums) on the outside. But one of the nicest on the...
The Denver D plays great. Keeps the game close until late. The Sheriff has one last late drive in him.
Until they get the franchise ship righted, they can play games at 3 am, won't matter, there won't be any home field advantage.
Boom goes the dynamite.
At this point in their careers, Tannehill isn't as good as Smith. IMO.
But he probably has a higher ceiling.
I agree. My point wasn't to be a dick. More to say their skill set is a bit different.
Agreed. But if Tannehill had Smith's brain.........
At least they make the playoffs.
Not sure that is a good move.
In the presser, Gase said he hadn't made any hires.
Is this what this organization has turned their fans into?
I thought I was bad. Jebus.
So it's not happening this year?
I was hoping for someone with HC experience (Shanahan or Jackson). But Gase would be at the top of my 'wetbacks' list.
Sure it does.
You bring them to town. Show them the facilities. You don't fly them to NYC to accommodate the owner. Its says "I don't really have...
It's possible it makes no difference. But the optics look bad imo.
I'm not up in arms. But out idiot owner should be holding interviews at the facility. Not NYC.
Because our douchy owner wishes he owned the Jets.
I think FinD is right. The structure is normal. The problem is with the people, imo.
God Gawd I hate our owner.
Pretty sure this is gonna happen. Thought so for a while now.
I don't know what makes me think it will happen, but its what I think.
Maybe it's Ross' desire to go big. While I'm OK with Jackson or Gase or...
Nothing. Just a feeling I have.
Ramsey over Hargreaves?
Apparently he is staying in the NFL. And just wants to coach....
For some reason I keep thinking Mike Shanahan will be the next coach of our Miami Dolphins.
Don't want him anyway.
Sean Payton or Mike Shula please.
I hear ya man.
I'm just saying, all things being equal I think the Shanahan match up well with Tannehill. Now, if you don't like Shanahan as a...
I want Payton or Shanahan.
I think the Shanahans would do wonders for Tannehill.
My thoughts are with you and your family.
Meh. That joke of a head coach is gone. Its over. Time to move on.
Besides, I've been wrong before too....probably.
I so badly don't want to let this go, but in honor of what happened this afternoon...I will.
I said it in the game thread....but either this team fully and completely quit on Joe Philbin or Joe Philbin is a worse coach than even I thought....
Jebus! This is a different team.
Thanks Ross for keeping Philbin around a year too long and making us all go through that.
Either this team fully and completely quit on Philbin...or Philbin was a worse coach than even I thought.
Looks like a totally different team today.
Good for Stephen Ross.
However that doesn't make him a good NFL owner.
Talk about the wind coming out of my sails. FFS!
Also, its one thing to fire your head coach, but it's another thing to fire everyone. Campbell will most likely sit down and talk to and evaluate...
If Campbell decides to keep Coyle I won't love it. but I'll assume and hope he sits down and talks to him.
Is it wrong that I believe #5 is our best option?
<-------- Or Coach Taylor.
I'll take Sean Payton thank you.
Easily the worst head coach in the NFL.
Sure does. I wish I could pull the trigger and bail on this joke of a franchise. And become a Packers fan. I have sooo much fun watching football...
Ha. You wish!
I'm sooo done.
I just texted this exact thing to a buddy. Sad.
Philbin will be fired soon.
And we will get a top 5 pick in May.
Philbin really does need to be fired first thing tomorrow morning. The guy has zero ability to get his team ready to play a game of football.
Mostly venting. But Coyle isn't exactly doing a great job. Clearly you disagree.
Well, our coaching staff seems to be fairly obtuse.
Like I said about ten pages ago.....if/when this season goes into the tank it will be more about coaching than quarterback play.
Coyle is proven at what? Sucking as a Defensive Coordinator?
I don't want this team to lose. I hate that this franchise has slowly sucked the fandom out of me the last decade or so. But, I can't believe that...
It was time 16 months ago.
Just enough for thar idiot Ross to keep Philbin
Just like this organization.
Thats funny shiit right there.
Where are all the fn rainbow and lollipoppers????
This is such a POS franchise.
For sure it ain't over. But thats not the point.
Ross is too stupid. He loves him some Philbin.
In other breaking news.....the f**king sky is blue.
This team fn sucks. Cant wait til Philbin is axed.
This team will go nowhere as long as Philbin is coach.
Can someone please tell me why this team is never ready to play ffs?
My guess is if we fail to make the playoffs it will have more to do with coaching than quarterback play.
Still very concerned about our safeties.
Time may not be on their side, but the circumstances aren't on our side either. That is a gaping hole we have inside. Gaping. And if you believe...
I would give anything for those to replace the current crap ones.
That's better than our current jerseys.
A team takes on the personality of its coach...
I certainly hope you are right and I am wrong.
Damn. I wish I had an ounce of confidence in our head coach, my optimism would be through roof if I did. However, I fear will have to win games...
A couple of those are better than the real one...
No doubt about it.
21 mil guaranteed...wow.
I don't like Joe Philbin.
That is all.
Is anyone else's excitement tempered by the fact Joe Philbin is still our coach?
No we gave them a 7th and Wallace for a 5th.
No. Just Philbin.
I haven't read through this entire thread, but are there people actually saying Tannehill is as good as Wilson, it just doesn't look that way...
My first thought was I agree with you...
My second thought was, crap, I'm old.
That's just the way I roll....
Joe Lombardi - 2.5 mil
Whisenhunt 2.5 mil
Ken Whisenhunt - OC 1.5 mil
Why u always gotta take it there......WHY?!
I like pie...wait, what?
Treat her well. Feed her...and don't hurt her.
All that work making my team page look nice and pretty....gone. Bastard! :cry:
1st overall pick.
Anyone else, just make an offer.
Tampa Bay retain HC Lovie Smith and DC Leslie Frazier
#1 pick overall is in play...fyi
What? Nobody bought that?
PSG has just agreed to GM the Bucs
All this is very cool.
But Joe Philbin is still our Head Coach...just sayin'
And I know that's not all you have to remember me by....:shifty:
I'm calling now...
Why does Todd get his kind of porn? Not everyone likes "Old MacDonald did his farm animals...."
I don't give a sh*t about Michigan. I care alot (or used to) about the Miami Dolphins.
He could have help Michigan get Harbaugh and fired...
Rock Bottom. 3-13. First overall pick.
I predict we will be drafting 1st overall in 2016.
I thought going away and sleeping on it would make me better about this.
This. Exactly. This is 100% how I feel. Which is to say I don't feel anything.
Cause Philbin has shown he can lead a team to the playoffs?
No, what he has shown is that his teams underachieve, don't EVER pay 60 minutes, are...
This is what I got...
Sounds good, no?
8-8. That's what its got.
Packers maybe though.
I sorta bailed near the end last year due to some personal stuff....but I want back in...please.
I think maybe a bit more time between the time...
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...
A loss to the Jets should do it...
Didn't read anything after the bolded part...
Can we fire Philbin tomorrow.....please?
Or Joe Philbin try to coach.
Uh huh. Keep those glasses on bro.
Incomplete pass fellas
Hate being a fan of this POS team.
Season. GTFO Philbin!
Hopefully next year our new Head Coach doesn't coach scared all the f***ing time
Not now. This team is pathetic in the crunch.
4 down territory
Agreed. Nobody can be taken seriously in these threads....myself included.
Landry is literally the best receiver on the team.
Win win really.
If we find a way to comeback and make the playoffs....awesome.
If we choke like last year...we fire our inept coaching staff
All the MO is with Baltimore right now
It should have been. MIAMI should be in the AFC SOUTH.
Just like the season, I'm done.
Hopefully so is Philbin.
Please fire Philbin and his cast of slapdicks.
Is losing tonight a fireable offense? Seriously.
I have no confidence in Ross either...sigh
Hell at this point my 21 point Rule will take affect before halftime.
Yup. And if we don't win this f'n game...I'm done with him.
And how many times have we seen it?
That's the MO of a Joe Philbin coached team. We've seen it before
Its what they do...
Gonna need more than that...
Never easy against the Jets.
Every time I get excited about this team...
We run the table...Pats lose in SD next week...
A win puts us back in the thick of the division race too. If we run the table here I think we will win the division.
If it means the playoffs? Absolutely.
But my point was, if we finish 10-6 an argument can be made we are progressing under this regime even if...
If we get to 10 wins but don't make the playoffs I can see the argument for progress and to keep everything intact.
But another 9-7 or worse...
Meh. Best I can muster. He isn't great...He isn't terrible. He's average. Just like his football team.
And even that won't guarantee a playoff spot.
This is it exactly.
Our problem right now is that instead of saying "we will win this game no matter what it takes." Philbin is curled up,...
I want to laugh, but I believe this could so happen. Ross is that stupid.
Joe Philbin saves his job because Stephen Ross is a moron.
Its possible Philbin ranks in the 30s in the list of best HCs in the league.
Just sayin.....brace yourself for another year of Philbin.
This thread is taking a huge leap of faith that Ross will actually fire Philbin.
True. But it seems like a revolving door of ineptitude that hasn't stopped since Shula and Marino left.
It's not even that I want to stop being a fan. But I hate this team for making me feel so...emotionless about the franchise. It sucks.
I said in the post exactly when I started it. Right after the 4 bad plays calls.
It as just a microcosm of the last 10 years.
And as I thought,...
The point of the post was more to say the passion isn't there like it used to.
I don't know why stick around either. Glutton for punishment I guess.
Good for you. Why even click on it then bro?
Before I start let me just say I know all the rainbow and lollipoppers will call me this and that and tell me to GTFO. But that's not the point of...
The gift that was Jeff Ireland just keeps on giving.
I so badly want to believe Tannehill is the answer. But on Sundays my eyes keep telling me otherwise.
Poor reads. Poor throws. Poor confidence....
Not throwing in the towel...but hard to get excited about this group...and this HC. One up, one down...The Philbin Way.
I'm honestly shocked people are saying Tannehill is as good as Rivers. SMH.
We will go nowhere as long as we have Philbin as HC.
Coaches scared all the time.
Damn....I wish those were our new uniforms. So much better than what we have now.
Neither have I. May just go with RedZone channel this season.
Exactly where I am right now....
How many times do I have to tell you...it was a trade. :shifty:
Ahhh Paul...I missed you too brother. :wink2:
WTF? I go on hiatus for a couple months and I miss all the fun.
As far as the apathy goes, It's a weird feeling and I don't really...
It's been awhile since I've been around but now I'm back....I know, I know, this place was better without me. :tongue2:
A number of things have...
Like the Landry pick. Not sure we needed to trade up for Turner. Not sure we needed Turner.
Why is it knee jerk. Im fine with trading down there. Just saying we reach by round yesterday.
Should have done that last night...would have saved us drafting someone a round early.
Thanks....been working from my phone this entire draft....couldnt post much info.

In your face...in all your faces....
I will never give up. I cant. I wont.
I know Im up...trying to get out but can't find an offer to my liking...
If anyone is looking to move up a few spots Im willing to move down a bit from 73 for an extra pick.
Minnestoa releases S Robert Blanton
With the 40th pick the Minnesota Vikings select:
Jimmie Ward S - Northern Ilinois
I wont hold things up too long...if I cant move down I'll make the pick soon
40 is still available. Id like to move down but stay in the 2nd round. PM me.
If anyone is interested in #40...Im wiiling to move down a few spots.
With the 38th pick the Minnesota Vikings select:
Xavier Su'a-Filo OG - UCLA
Why does that not surprise me?
I get it. But while Carlson and Rudolph are good they both have injury concerns...and I love Ebron.
With the 8th pick the Minnesota Vikings select:
Eric Ebron TE - North Carolina.
I wont hold up things long...but if anyone wants to move up a couple spots...I will listen for about 30 mins.
May as well get the ball rolling....Im willing to move down a few spots...
Yeah Todd....get off my account....
Think I'll just wait until noon on Wednesday. ..
I agree with not needing all the bashing....but just Todd being Todd.
I was more talking about agreeing with Todd with how the auction was...
I hate siding with Todd, but........
Screw the auction. My offer of 3.72 for Lofton still stands. And will until Im OTC.
You two damn crybabies should both be ruled out and Lofton should be mine....suck it.
I dont think any RB on the roster is good. Moreno isnt anything special either but he is as good and probably better that what we currently have.
Based on what...exactly?
Kinda just realized how old this thread is so....nevermind.
I dont think Ive been inactive at all. Havent made many trades...but that doesnt mean I'm not active. Trades arent the end al be all.

Previous Salary: $21,773,000
New Salary: $10,886,500
This the most interest I've had in AP since this thing started.....if you want him...better step up with an offer before he is gone.
Thats potentially true....but AP is a game changer at that position. My point was more that everyone must just assume Im asking for the world...
Salary I get...but the asking price isnt crazy....its steep enough...but not crazy.
Does nobody around here want Adrian Peterson?
Looking for a top tier QB.
Peterson is being dangled.

Playoffs. End thread.
Anything less is just settling and coming up with excuses again.
I was in the clean house camp myself.
Yes. I think better coaching would've got us a single win against the less talented Bills or Jets at the end of the season.
No doubt in my mind.
Someone didnt read the first post fully.
Stephen Ross is basically an idiot savant.
This is unbelievable. I'm going to at least let the guy do something before I start bashing him.
And people around here call me negative.
Brandon Fields says hi.
If I'm Gaine it would tell me nobody else wanted it so they turned to me as a last resort.
1. Cleveland Browns
2. Minnesota Vikings
3. St. Louis Rams
4. Oakland Raiders
5. Houston Texans
6. Jacksonville Jaguars
7. San Francisco 49ers
Um because Lake Dawson himself said so. But keep your head in the sand. We are a finely run organization.
Wow. Imagine that. Shocking.
No. This is the lowest....and it isn't even close.
Sure, 1-15 sucked. So did the 62-7 playoff beatdown by the Jags.
But this is different. Those...
The Miami Dolphins are the new laughing stock of the NFL. And it will stay that way until that bufoon Stephen Ross sells the team.
It sure is disturbing. Thanks Ross.
Lol....forgive me for having very little confidence in Mr. Ross as a competent NFL owner.
Ross will blow it.
Why do I get this sinking feeling Ross is just gonna promote Gaine...ffs
Haven't you heard?
That is too bad...
Yeah Im completely on the fence with Philbin. Im willing to give him another year...I guess.
He did have a lack of talent to work with but that...
You are right about Kubiaks health being a potential issue.
I dont know much about Lazor so I don't really know if he was the best choice or not.
I know. Just been lazy....
My guess is either one would have been better than Lazor, but thats just a guess.
Now get your asses home and get this league going dammit!
Has there been a GIK/Mach sighting?
What the hell are these two doing?
If true, its one step forward...two steps back.
Only you can cure my itch. And you are lollygagging good sir.
All you are really getting prepared for is to lose by 3 touchdowns again.
The smug rapist is about to win the Natioinal Championship.Too bad.
Lol. Good point.
Not looking very genius like in the 2nd half...
You have more confidence in Ireland's ability than I do.
So this is the big shake up?
Fu*king awesome. Looks like the circus has been extended for another year.
I NEVER thought I'd feel this...
It would actually explain alot if GMJohnson was Teflon Jeff.
It would help explain why Ireland is so sh*tty at his job. He spends to much time on...
But we needed olinemen last year and Teflon Jeff whiffed. Why have so much confidence in him again?
So what do you want?
How long does Teflon Jeff get to produce something other than dog crap?
You seem content with .500 every year Because you want nothing to change.
Why? Because we arent happy with mediocrity?
Uh....hate to be that guy but....link?
Means we didn't get swept.
Which is the division the MIAMI DOLPHINS should be in.
Nail. Head. Hit.
You're right. We are way better than buffalo. The 0-2 record proves it.
Will I switch to a new team? Probably not. But it is getting increasingly harder to give a sh*t about this team.
Nah....my diaper is good bro.
All I know is that it looks like Ross is happy with mediocrity.
Which makes Miami the worst.
We got f**king swept by the Bills.
This itch is starting to turn into a rash.....just sayin.
Also, it does appear to be somewhat new news, if accurate.
The reports says both Ireland and Philbin are safe. Suggesting Ross indeed has made up...
Fair enough. We just have a difference of opinion. There is no way I will ever be convinced that keeping Jeff Ireland as GM of this the football...
