Today? Looks like I finally solved time travel.
Record is secondary. The most important thing this season is how tanny develops. If tanny evolves into a franchise qb I could care less if we go 5-11.
I think our season ended last Sunday personally, but it's possible for them to finish strong enough for a wild card. They certainly have the schedule for it.
I thought slip sliding away was a Paul Simon solo piece? At any rate that's a great song
Thanks for easing the tension.
While i am optimistic about the years to come, these dismal September's have to cease. We need to regain our September dominance. Comeback stories are great but they are few and in between. Playoff teams start strong and that gives them leeway to lose in December. When you begin the season like we usually do there's no room for errors. Until we figure out how to close these games , we will always be playing the what if game.
I know this board wasn't expecting a winning season before the season especially after those 4 meaningless pre season games.
I still think the Bengals game is very critical to the season. There is a good chance that if Miami wins that there will be a four way tie in the AFC East at 2-3.
Well lets hope that we will finally play a complete game and put the bengals away for the win.
Stupid thread. Anyone with a brain knows this whole season is gravy for Miami. It's about new coach/staff implementing their program/system and the development of Tannihill. Of course winning would be nice but keep the grand picture in prospective
Thanks for the laugh.
You do realize it takes a whole team of players to win, ignoring key weak spots that could be addressed is not good for future, a better receiving corp makes Tannehill better
I agree. And I thought the Cardinals game was very critical as well, only because I thought it told us what kind of team we are right now, either bottom or middle of the pack. Right now we are with the bottom teams.
The Cincy game will be detrimental to our season....if we slip to 1-4 I think our playoff hopes will begin to diminish this early in the season. We just can't afford to lose another game of this caliber to a possible playoff contending AFC team. We are going to need some tiebrakers if we are going to finish strong. Cause it's not how you start, rather how you finish.
Now, do you guys think a 1-4 start would be the beginning of an Ireland firing at the end of the season????
....at risk of sounding like a Homer here....at 1-3...I'm actually ok with where our Phins are at this point...hell we're a couple of field goals... or a couple of ill timed passes of being 3-1..and that's not a stretch to say...personally I haven't been this excited about Miami Dolphins Football....well..since Marino was playing....I can't believe I just said that...I'm looking for win against Cincy...
Ireland gets a full season report card no matter what.
I don't think the 1-3 start hasn't been enough for a firing, but that could change really quickly in the next 2 games
ok agree but what does your statement have to do with this stupid season might start sliding thread
That was replying to people acting like this season is just a practice year to throw away and we didnt need to add any talent because 2013 is the year thats all.
If we score 21 points a game with this offense this season and tannehill looks legit...its all I care about. Good things to come.
i guess legadu nannee is playing 50 ways to leave your lover.
This. Why do we constantly talk about how it's all about T-hill's progression? I'm just as excited as the next guy and a huge T-hill fan, but this is a TEAM effort which starts with our coaches. This is also the NFL and you are suppose to WIN. It's all about where you are in the standings. The scoreboard doesn't give extra points for the progression of our QB's maturity level. I wanna see the defense dominate, our off. line hit on all cylinders, our WR's running crisp, accurate routes efficiently, our ST's cover their zones and cause turnovers, our kicker.... uh, kick... good... etc.
The team is playing hard and RT continues to develop. If Carpenter gets out of the whisky bottle, we are 3-1.
The season is far from over. Once we win the next 2 games, at 3-3, we can make a push for a wildcard.
I am not expecting the playoffs this year, but we have a shot.
This a must win if there is any hope for this year....next year looks very good though.
The next two weeks are going to be very interesting. IF we go 3-3 by the bye, we follow with 4 winable games vs Jets, Indy, Titans, and Buff, and should all be feeling pretty good about this team.
IF, for whatever reason, we drop the next 2 games, I have to wonder if the team, at least considers, trading any of our potential FA's. I have to think that by now the team has a plan for next year, and who they can sign, the cost, and the fit. For one example, could a Starks become available, with moving Odrick to DT, and get a much better look at Vernon and Shelby? Moore would be a possibility, and bringing Devlin in for the backup. IF we do not have plans for Long, that would be a whole lot more complicated, as it would put RT at risk.
Just a little food for thought.
As we have become musical, add in the team building "A Bridge Over Troubled Waters."
If Miami beats the Bengals on Sunday I think there will be nothing but the Sounds of Silence in Cincinnati. We will be calling Cincinnati Guard Trevor Robinsn, Mrs. Robinson, as we repeatedly sack Andy Dalton. If the Dolphins can win in Cincinatti I think we will be Homeward Bound, and right back in the thick of the AFC East. :420:
Cheese-n-Rice!! thanks for the sunshine Chicken Little. but for a couple of made field goals… we gotta put away the scissors & sharp knives. c'mon y'all, one game at a time.
Then I'm laying out my winter clothes
And wishing I was gone
Where the New York City winters aren't bleeding me
Bleeding me, going home
In the clearing stands a boxer
And a fighter by his trade
And he carries the reminders
Of ev'ry glove that layed him down
Or cut him till he cried out
In his anger and his shame
"I am leaving, I am leaving"
But the fighter still remains
Lie la lie ... any thought of a winning season is a lie la lie.
After we beat down the Bengals...what will we hear from these bengal trolls? I suspect we will hear The Sound of Silence
