    I was hyped beyond belief for the Ravens game. A ten out of ten.

    I'm gonna watch the game and am grateful for any football, knowing that soon, we're gonna have to wait 5 months for games. But my excitement level is about a four out of ten. You?

    Non existent to be honest, my goal is to see our young QB keep playing well. That's about it

    Don't care that there's a game today, it's over. At this point I wouldn't even dress the players that are valuable to us, a major injury in these last meaningless games would be tragic. But Philbin is going to try to save his job and so everyone is at risk.

    1 out of 10.

    I'll be checking on Matt Asiata's stats throughout the game, that is it.

    I might try to finish up my Christmas shopping instead. I may watch a little just because I'm paying for Sunday Ticket.

    I'm pretty discouraged and not very excited about the game, but I am going to watch it. I'll be hoping to see some guys that haven't gotten snaps in the game. Tripp, Turner, Williams. Hazel, the new TE and any others. Even if we win not sure how excited I will be.

    thought this was a gif thread..

    Raven game was the apex game..

    I just keep going back to the jet game last year, to lose to geno smith, at home, with everything on the line, and now the measuring stick game, the ravens at home, to lose both has me at a 7, because Im all about that offseason..lol

    I'm hyped to see if Tannehill can build on last weeks vertical passing success. Aikens, Matthews, Sheppard, auditioning for a job. Clay, Odrick want new deals. Hartline & Gibson need to show they still belong.

    I'm more excited for what could potentially (by that I mean probably won't at all) happen on 12/29. I'm a 0/10 for today's game and my only hope is that there are no long-term injuries suffered by key players for next year.

    I am sure they will win the final two games because the chokers have no pressure to win.

    My excitement level was lost when our Defense disappeared off the face of the earth. I really am sick of finest football. Also I still had hope going into the New England game..I hate to say it but now Miami do not get fancy and win these last two games..I want us to lose the next two games so I can be assured that Philbin & Coyle are BOTH gone and it will also give us a much better draft pick in each round

    Not as excited as I would be normally, but there are only 4 months of Miami Dolphins football and 16 games every season (since we can't get to the playoffs), I am going to try to enjoy every single one of them.

    I cant watch wanting the Dolphins to lose but, I would like to see the entire roster playing.

    Lets see what we have. Who knows maybe someone shines that otherwise wouldn't be given a chance.

    This is when I root more for the players I like. Seeing RT17 excel will be my main hope for the last 2 weeks.

    Well I will watch the game but it is difficult to go another season with no hope for the playoffs.

    Exactly.. if we end the season on a good note, winning the last two games convincingly, it would be pretty satisfying for me going into the offseason. It would also lift the players' spirits and keep them optimistic heading into next season, albeit it would also higher Philbin's chances of being kept, the one drawback for me.

    I'm not excited at all. I didn't watch last week, wound up checking the score on my phone. At halftime I was regretting my decision, but by the 3rd I chuckled and was glad.

    I won't be watching today. Maybe next week since its the jets and it'll be on local TV.

    Gotta be honest - I'm rooting for a loss today. If Philbin wins these two games, we are gonna have all the weirdos come out of the woodwork talking about injuries and one game improvements and a bunch of other complete nonsense and Philbin may be kept.

    I warn everyone, if we win out and Philbin is kept, we are gearing up for an 0-8 start next year. It happens all the time. Failed coach hangs on when he shouldn't and the wheels come off. Then tanneys fate is sealed and so is our next 2-3 years.

    We need to lose and get failbin the hell out of here. Sorry but I'm actually hoping the vikings win decisively. That's why I won't be watching too, can't root against the phins when I'm actually watching.

    In all seriousness, as others have said, I'd like to see Ryan Tannehill finish the season strong. Especially considering how he finished the final 2 games last year, if he puts up 2 bad performances to finish off a questionable December, it will create questions about his ability to finish strong and may cause top coaching candidates to give pause before considering the job.

    On the other hand - If he can light the world on fire these next 2 games then candidates would have to feel pretty good about taking over a team with a promising young QB. The media and everyone else tends to remember the most recent performances of a QB. That's why nobody talked much about RT in the offseason. They remembered the last 2 games and not how well he played the rest of the season.

    I was at the pats game last week and left by the 4th. Ive seen the dolphins lose 8 or so times at games and always stayed at the game. Last week felt like a stab in the heart, i dont even want to watch the game. I just hope tannehill continues to be our qb of the future and plays like it

    I`ll still be watching every minute, every play....don't really know any other way. Depressing though knowing we had the playoffs in the palm of our hands for the second year in a row and blew it.

    I have a tee off time at 8:30 am locale time. That will 1:30 pm eastern time. I have set my DVR to record the game and I plan on watching it only if the Dolphins win. I have no interest in watching it if the Dolphins lose to the Vikings. I will check the score when I get home from the golf course and see if the Dolphins won or not.

    At this stage of the season, with the Dolphins having little chance of making the playoffs, my interest in this game is a 1 on a scale of 1-10.

    My main concern now regarding the Dolphins is who the next head coach will be and who the Dolphins will select in the upcoming draft.

    Right.... Tannehill's stats as of now are 22 TDs, 11 ints and 3390 yards. If he can post about 500 yds, 4 TDs and 1 int over the next two games (doable, IMO) he'll end up at around 3900 yds, 26 TDs and 12 Ints, which would be a pretty respectable stat line and would show consistent progress from year to year.

    I know it's not in our best interest to win, but I can't help but root when I see our colors on that field. I really have no control over those feelings.

    How sad that our clueless owner has put fans in this tough position where they feel they have no choice but to root for losses just to secure the dismissal of a coach that should be fired regardless of how our last 2 games go.
