    Jesus, it was our last game and to the players it was like the last day of school for them until summer vacation, how many of you all actually cared and worked hard on the last day of school until break unless you were in all AP classes? I don't blame them since we weren't playing for anything anyway. Helps our draft position out a lot better in the end.

    Tannehill is fine, don't understand why some people all of the suddenly hate him after this game.

    Hope you all have a good off season. I will see some of you in the basketball section and the rest of you when the draft comes around.

    I agree. I'm not mad we lost.

    I am however upset at Wallace for acting like a pre-schooler and the idea of bringing Coyle back.

    Now I won't lie, I will freak out like a pre-schooler if we bring back Coyle. Think it shows that the players on defense don't like him.

    Some of you people are amazing...who died and made you thought police? The problem is not that fans over-react to a loss. The problem next year when the miss the playoffs again because the owner, hc, dc, and others suck is no one's going to care.

    I'm more upset that we are keeping Philbin than that we lost.

    Also **** the Jets.

    You pretty much summed it up. The team played like kids on the last day of school. You just stated that they didn't care, and you expect this to be received favorably by fans?

    It's easy to overreact to losing a game, one that was to a rival and not to mention all the bad feelings fans had bubbling underneath them for most of the season, heck even the decade or so. It's just another season where all you can do is throw up your hands in frustration and hope for the best coming up, but we know it just leads to more facepalming because the moves that some of us want to see won't happen. I'm just going to sit back and hope that sticking with the same regime will equate to the same success that Dallas had this year sticking with Garrett through three 8-8 seasons. Just bring me a sledgehammer at MLB and a big STRONG WR this offseason.

    I just came from pulling Fin-O off the ledge. It was a difficult thing to accomplish, let me tell you. I almost gave up hope when I saw him wearing his Knicks jersey, so futile I thought the effort would be, but I just couldn't let him jump without trying to stop him.

    I'm excited to see what next season will bring but I think we'll essentially know by week 8 whether or not there's any hope.

    I don't like Philbin but I'm alright with him getting 1 more year. I definitely want to keep Bill Lazor around for offensive continuity.

    I think there's a chance that this team really lights it up offensively next year. If the right things happened, I think we could become something special on that side of the ball, but at the same time, it could also fall to pieces quickly and we could be staring .500 right in the face again. The defense is utterly abysmal and Tannehill has flaws that rear up now and again.

    I don't know. We'll see I guess. I'll remain optimistic but this might go nuclear if things fall apart and I can't really blame anyone.

    The jets didn't think so. They had a good football coach. That's why.

    To me, this is the exact reason I am pissed off. That's ridiculous to even think that it's ok for them to play that way. They're professional athletes! It's their job! It's the coaches job to ensure they stay focused and motivated, even when there's a meaningless game.

    Another year, no playoffs, another year of Philbin and his .500 records, or one game over, or under 500. Great.

    Fans have a right to be upset in these situations.

    Unfortunately... there's nothing we can do. Complain for a few days... then move on to get beaten down by this team again next year.

    On the bright side, he Jets may keep Geno as their starter.

    Is Geno going to play the Dolphins defense 16 games next season?

    It is a shame that is how some fans are too (not saying you, I sense your sarcasm), however, I will never settle for despicable displays from my favorite sports teams like what the Phins displayed today.... absolutely pathetic.

    I agree but what am I really going to about it. Nothing. But grease up for the 2015 reaming.

    He played well, just as he did last year in week 17. As a Phin fan I definitely hope they keep him.

    2 years in a row ****ting the bed against the stinkin Jets. 2 years in a row choking down the stretch and another season in the long line of mediocrity that is Miami Dolphins football. Missing the playoffs is one thing - missing it in this fashion is terrible.

    Really? School? Since when does anyone get paid millions to go to school?! It's a damn job, and they're paid HANDSOMELY to give 100% for the duration of the season. Once they start playing for free, they can start being carefree about their play. So do you give a half-assed effort every Friday at work just b/c it marks the end of the week?

    Regardless, it's still the f***ing Jets, a game that should NEVER be treated as meaningless. They sure as hell didn't!! Losing to NY should never be tolerated or encouraged no matter the circumstances. It's the last game of the year against your biggest rival. If you're not playing for the playoffs, you sure as f*** better be playing for pride, especially if it's a chance to sweep them. Philbin deserves to be canned immediately for not having this team up and motivated for 60 minutes of this rivalry game; meanwhile, Rex had the Jets playing like it's the Super Bowl, and his team and fan base were rewarded for it.

    It's simple, we were playing for nothing. Philbin knew he was safe for next season so why would anyone care about the last game that meant nothing? If you thought this game meant something then hey more power to you bro.

    The Patriot players seemed to enjoy a game off for being paid millions. Their game meant nothing and so did ours. We already knew we missed the playoffs a few weeks ago so it shouldn't come to a surprise.
