    Very interesting.
    In how players feel about Gase, he used the words like, no respect, no trust, blowing smoke from his mouth.
    He also said, Gase is very close to losing the team if not lost already.

    I wondered the same thing myself. Right now this team is sickening! I wondering if this was due to Jay Cutler decision? Are players really happy that he was brought in?

    If he has lost the team then it's the beginning of the end for him. He's toast.

    I fully believe so, yes. If Cutler had come in and played on fire, then I think the team might've rallied behind the decision. But when you've got a hard worker and team guy like Matt Moore, it was a slap in the face to everyone to shell out $10 mill for a guy that was on the couch and even in his prime was as good as Moore ever was.

    I don't think Gase is going anywhere after this season. So if he lost the team that means there will be a lot of roster changes going into next season. Whether you think Gase is a good coach or not doesn't change the fact that many of the guys currently on the roster are either underperforming or they just suck. Not many guys currently on the roster that you would want to build a championship team around. Hopefully the team adds more talented dedicated football players to the roster next season. Much of the dead weight currently weighing the team down needs to be gone.

    I thought the same and saw signs a ways back...remember landry. If Ajayi was liked in the locker room that may have been icing on the cake. Brutal losses and playing the way they have leads to this.I would be more shocked if they stood behind him. If we see what the product lacks on the field imagine what the players see and feel.

    He will lose the locker room before the end of the season. They will get blown out at least 2 more times.

    Trading Ajayi was stupid. I will say it til I die. That lost the team.

    Gase definitely lost the team.i said that 2 weeks ago. Best to dump him after the season. Never had us prepared for a single game this year. We are the Miami Dolphins so most likely Gase be there anther 3 years til Ross realized he's a bust

    It could go either way. Ross doesn't really like to fire anyone and when he has done it, he failed to clean house all the way. I honestly not sure what to think of Gase at this point. My dad(RIP) used to say, "if you don't have the horse then it doesn't matter who the coach is"........at this point it wouldn't matter to me if he stays or goes but if he goes, then t-dumb and Grier need to go as well

    Ozzy rules!!

    I think players should be more concern about there own job security right about now. If Gase has lost the locker room something I am skeptical about, the players have no one other than themselves to blame not necessarily the coach. If you can't block, throw or catch that is not on the coaching staff that is on the players and they need to look in the mirror. Gase is not going anywhere, but some of those players are and rightfully so.

    meh, if he lost the team over dumping a malcontent, then he never really had the team and then it's time to move on. I anxiously await the offseason to see how much roster turnover we have. whichever players he lost I expect them to be gone.

    When the team is not prepared for the first drive, before the snap, before blocking, throw and catch, that's on coaching.

    If he lost the team it's because of what the product is on the field, game plan, adjustments, coaching, dealing with personnel etc. Our players may be dumb, lazy, unmotivated but so our our coaches. Cripes, I have been a fan for 45 years and nearly all bad but this year tops all others in being bad...can't blame it all on the players some of it is scheme.

    Is Ajayi, plus Cutler, plus JT, plus Manualuga, and few others things.
    How would players feel when you sign an overweight Manualuga because of connection.

    I don't think it is Gase as a coach as much as his inability to delegate or having the right coaches to delegate to. He needs to give up calling plays to a real OC and we need a real DC and better position coaches!

    I guess none of these players are concerned about future contracts.

    yes but he seems to be stubborn and makes excuses blaming players. Wheres the coaching accountability. Imagine having a ****ty physics teacher and when you fail a test h or she's says you are not putting in the effort, need to study more etc. Now multiply this over 5 quizzes and three exams and you would want the teacher gone. This is what I feel is occurring here currently.

    On coach for the most part. It is coaches responsibility to make sure players prepared.

    I got an idea! Lets give up on gase when things get tough just like we do all our struggling young players and then watch as he takes a team to the super bowl that isnt us! Sounds very dolphinish.

    I agree. I cant remember what OC it was but a few years back I remember our OC going down to the field to make calls, then giving it up and saying he needed to be up high to see the whole field. I have been wondering all season if that would help our playcalling.

    I find it hard to believe that this team was not prepared to play any game this season, our failure to execute is a lack of our Oline being unable to protect the QB which has affected the entire play of the offense.
    On defense: The Dline is showing it's age and getting no pressure on apposing QBs which has also affected the Dbacks ability to cover, couple that they are young you can understand the difficulties.
    I highly doubt that Gase is a bad coach, he just has a bad team.

    Except a head coach can't prepare every single player on the team. These are grown men, professionals who have to take the game seriously and learn some of this on their own. It also falls on the position coaches to prepare their units.

    I thought that Gase was the next young Don Shula? Brilliant young mind? What happened? Could it be the front office handcuffing him? I don't get it. Sean McVey sure looks good at age 32 right now.

    Player acquisition falls on the staff including Gase. Gase basically said the guards were ok and we see the result. He does not seem to recognize talent. Again folks, it's not only the win/loss record. We look horrific from the bell week in and out. We are not losing well fought games late, we lose 5 min in and it doesn't get better. How can anybody see anything good out of Gase. What has he done with the team to even give me hope this year?

    If we know anything about Ross its he'll demand Gase fires at least one assistant to send a message. So will it be Burke or Rizzi (to be fair, the offense is just as bad as those units but he can't very well fire himself)?

    Truthfully more coaches have lost this locker room than the players have played for their coach. I'd release all of them if I could. I could build an expansion team that could execute better than these bums.

    Unfortunately, Gase and TBum will still be with Miami next year and problem another season after that. Ross has no spine.

    Ross is the problem. Might have money but he's proving..slowly but surely...he cannot hire the right people to even contend the AFC East let alone the AFC. Playoffs? Que the New Orleans HC infamous quote. Ross. Start at the top. The sooner this individual stops getting a get out of Jail card the better. Hes pulling the strings.

    Maybe, just maybe, that core of players that he supposedly lost are just plain bad... At some point, you go through one coach after another, maybe it's the players and the guys picking them up... Or maybe he didnt lose them, maybe he's just about to cut all of the overrated bums on this team... Who knows... either way, he aint losing much....

    This roster isnt one free agent away from competence. It needs purged, but only after every member of the front office from tannenbaum to the lowest scouting inturn has been purged and renoved from the building.
