    That says it all. 10 rushes for Ronnie Brown. 7 rushes for Ricky Williams. Are you ****ing kidding me?

    You let Henne throw the ball 45 times? People say we don't have a run game...that's because WE DON'T call running plays.

    Bills have the 8th pass D and 32nd Run D. And they never stuck to the run to begin with. Forget about re-signing Ronnie, if I were him I'd shun the Dolphins and be gone if this coaching staff comes back. They don't give him the ball.

    I agree we need a more open-minded/up to date OC. I think Sparano deserves that at least.

    I am relatively calm about this loss. I find comfort in that I expected it, and that Henning is as good as gone, possibly sparano too.

    Did you see Ronnie? He put on his "Moves" before he was even threatened. That's not how you run for a new contract.

    He stated in his post game that he told Dan Henning to open it. He's had that power all season and could have done it all season. He didn't.

    Ricky should have had around 18 carries and 25 for Ronnie. But, we've been saying it all year. Could even give some of those to Cobbs if you want. In most of the Dolphins wins this year they've ran the ball about the same or more than they've passed. No surprise we lost now.

    Dan Henning is a senile old fart who needs to be sent to an old age home to eat pudding for supper for the rest of his days.

    I'm hoping this doesn't surprise you considering who our OC is.

    To hell with Sparano too really. It's his philosophy to play ultra conservative that gets us into most of this trouble. He can go too as far as I'm concerned.

    Yeah I was very surprised by this...I thought Miami would attempt to run it down their throats. Seems to work for everybody else...

    Nah..where is the fun in exploiting weaknesses? How could we then infuriate the fan base?

    It's as if they are tanking games on purpose.

    This. Several times. We don't run the ball because we can't. Ronnie dances because there is no hole.

    It's almost that egregious with the negligent playcalling...it was seriously mind-boggling.

    Well...you know...My wife is a football fan..but she is not up on team rankings..etc...

    She tells me.."Buffalo is terrible (no offense)...Henne should have a good game.."

    I then respond "intelligently"..by saying "nah..their secondary is pretty good....but they can;t stop the run...this is a Ronnie/Ricky game....we should run it 40 times at least....and win by 9 or 10."

    We then throw it 45 times and ignore the run. My Wife: "I thought you said that they can;t stop the run...why are we throwing it so much?" I just shook my head..and smiled.

    Not like we don't have enough healthy running backs either.

    lol, I hear ya man. Everybody always overreacts and thinks they can coach better than the actual professionals, but from what I've seen this year (from a number of coaches around the league) I'm actually starting to believe it.
