    Parcells steps aside so that his boys can stand on their own and prove their worth and they give Ross this crap. Ouch. Ross is attempting to bring this franchise into the 21st century with family friendly and entertaining upgrades, celebrity owners, etc and we lay 2 eggs in our first 2 home games. Ouch. There is egg all over his face right now and I'm guessing the New Yorker in him doesn't like that very much.

    This FO better watch out, this may be their last season coaching the Fins unless they at least start winning home games. They better be busy during this bye week because with our up coming 5 games we could very well be 2 - 7 by the time we get to the Bears game.

    at Packers - maybe if we prepare well for their passing game and it won't be frigid up there yet
    Steelers - I don't think we can win this game. Its at home but since we don't have a home field advantage...
    at Bungles - winnable but far from certain
    at Ravens - forget about it
    Titans - winnable if we can at least slow down CJ.
    Bears - if the G-men can get 10 sacks on Cutler I would think we could at least have 5 sacks

    I am underwelmed...

    all ross cares about is the entertainment value. he's the clown that lobbied for no 1pm games because it's too hot. instead we start with 2 on the road and our first 2 home games are in the evening taking away the head advantage.

    that said sparano stinks. this team has talent but he's trying to run an 80s style offense.

    Right now, Miami is not a good team. When a team plays this bad everything has a bad taint to it. We got beat by Ninkovich, Chung and Woodhead. That is pathetic. I hope Ross is fuming and lights a fire in the coaching staff's *****.

    If I were Ross I would probably step back till Wed, he can't be happy he has given then Carte Blanche and isn't getting much in return!

    as long as the halftime show went off without a hitch, ross is fine. the product on the field is secondary to his star studded press box and red carpet entrances.

    he'll confide in ole pal carl peterson who will promptly go with fimiliarity and hire herm edwards.

    eegads!

    It is with the competion in the south Florida market. I don't have any problem with what he's doing on the business side. I don't really want our franchise to become the better version of the Jax Jaguars, hemoraging money because we can't get our fans to the games (much less all the Jets and Pats fans that come). Its the nature of the beast in today's NFL. All of the "football purists" need to get over themselves. They're stuck in the '80s and '90s like Parcells.

    As long as the celebrities aren't roaming the sidelines being distractions, I don't care.

    True...

    One of them needs to be up in the box calling plays, the others probably need to be playing special teams..

    Stephen Ross is much more interested in Enrique Iglesias' performance last Sunday than he is in Chad Henne's performance last night.

    I seriously doubt it. People don't come to see losing teams, no matter how many celebrities you trot out for them or how many water parks you build. You still have to win games. Every owner in the NFL wants his team to be a big money maker and the best way to do that is to be a winning franchise.

    They played as well as Enrique last night. I am ashamed that they scored on us every way possible. And Tom Brady still went home and banged Giselle. Henne banged his sock puppet.

    football is secondary to Ross.... always has, always will be. However last night was an embarrassment to him. He's pissed. Believe that. Last night the Miami Dolphins made Ross look like a complete fool. $#!t... they made the fans look like complete fools as well. I saw so many people dressed up and decked out in fins gear only to sit there in silence. This team better beat the Packers... they have no #$%@ing choice now. Better show us what your made of.

    ross doesnt give a crap about this team!!! And you know something else, J-Fastass-lo and Marky have never met Henne or most if not any of the team.. Ross allowing these idiots to become partial owners, only proves he could give a crap about the team.. He is one of the worst owners in the NFL.. Bring back Wayne for god sakes. At least he cared!

    Mm, the no 1PM games is a good idea. Ever been to a game? You get torched..quick. It's a little different from cold weather..

    Then explain, E!, the medias obsession w/ celebrities (Showbiz tonight, etc...), no talent clowns trying to become celebrities (American Idol, etc...), & how ESPN locks on to & deifies athletes (LeBron, Jeter, Sanchize, Kobe, Tiger)?

    I personally could care less who owns a team or even who the GM is. I will root for against a team because of Geography or who the coach is.

    Bottom line; Ross IMO will not be as patient w/ the current regime as Wayne was with Dave W.

    Have you ever experienced a cold weather game? Having sat in Rice-Eccles & or Lavell Edwards stadium in October or November in rain & snow, I can tell you its a fate worse than fate worse than death.

    Of course, I'm kinda funny when it comes to weather. I prefer Vegas in July to Feb in Utah.

    Stephen Ross is likely too busy ruining our stadium, vacuuming the Orange Carpet, calling up D-list celebrities and performing fellatio on the collective members of Roger Goodell and the Super Bowl Host Committee rather than paying attention to the actual team he owns.

    Plus I like the 1 PM late summer-early fall games, Tampa Bay and Jacksonville have to deal with the same heat and they don't complain. Just drink plenty of water, wear sunscreen and a hat, and enjoy the game.

    the 1pm games are an advantage to a hot weather team just like the cold is going to be an advantage to the pats when we play them the last game of the year.

    ross doesn't care about that. he thinks the fans come for the "experience". it's very simple. if you put a winning product on the field the fans will come no matter what time the game.

    I don't think you become a billionaire by overreacting too quickly. We are 2-2 with 3/4 of the season left to go. I'm sure he's upset with what happened last night but it would have to be a miserable year for him to do anything drastic after the season...he won't do much until then

    Bill Cowher anybody? sparano gotta go..Bad playcalling...Unmotivated special teams. Bad mix of run and pass. Anybody else thinks sparano is a bad coach...He cant control himself.Like when he jumps up and down after every other play...Does he even know what play is being called???? I know.But to have henne go up and blame himself for the loss is kinda what sanchez did the first week and a couple of times last year..But it really was marks fault...Henne is not to blame...The plays after the run were..No play action and no shots down field...I can't believe how small bess is..I only watch them when they play nyj or prime time......

    i wouldn't say henne isn't to blame for last night. out of all the pats 6 pts in the first half, they all came on drives that resulted after an henne int. if henne does not throw ints in the first half when he did, we can easily have scored at worse case scenario 13 pts, and maybe even 17-21, and the pats may have not scored at all, and its a whole different game in the 2nd half with our team motivated and fired up.

    henne started the domino effects last night by throwing the 2 picks, but the way the st played in the 2nd half, it all got lost in the game.

    play calling with us is always questionable and odd, but the only one that really stuck out to me in the first half was the 3rd and 6 wildcat call. made no sense.

    also, in the 2nd half, the fins showed no sense of urgency to score, calling runs, and taking their time to get to the line of scrimmage. it was really embarrassing.

    I have no problem with the owner trying to make a profit. But from a season ticket holder's (since 2000) perspective:

    1. Stop showing Fergie, The Williams Sisters, Gloria, JLo, Etc. at EVERY break in the action (No one cares about whether they own part of the team or not)
    2. The stupid "Fins Up" thing - Get RID of it. Pats fans had a blast with that last night, and to be frank, I'd laugh at us too.....
    3. Other teams play music to fire their fans up after a score......we play Jimmy Buffet. Embarassing.
    4. "Orange Carpet" - Who cares. I don't know one season ticket holder who gives a rat's a$%

    Sigh. I've actually thought of turning in my six seats because it's borderline annoying going to these things now. And that's about what, 8k to the team I spend every year?

    Both teams have to play in the elements regardless if it's 100 degrees or 10 degrees. Like Sparano said, people can just use weather as an excuse. You think because I live in Wisconsin that I don't get cold in the winter?? Everyone does!!!! And we get hot in July when the heat index is over 100
