    THE ERA OF JAY FIEDLER IS OVER

    START Sage Rosenfels THIS SUNDAY !!!!@




    What do we have to loose? We know what Jay can do playing football, and what Brain can do fumbling the football.. But we haven't seen what Sage can do yet, He did relieve us of a shut out in the disaster against the titans, and ended with a great touchdown pass, but we haven't seen him in a starting situation.

    Since the season is already over for us, building for next year the prime priority, And we need a QB more than anything. Not a WR, or a new OLine because everything ultimatley starts with the Quarterback. You cant have a running game without a passing game, and vise versa.

    We need a Quarterback for the future and i think the first place to look is on our bench, If we do loose, the worst thing that can happen is we get a higher draft pick, and if we win we obvisouly get a lower draft pick.

    JAY FIEDLER's ERA is over, we need to start looking for a new QB

    keep in mind the sage is 4/6, 50 yards and a TD pass his first time in the NFL vs the titans

    Wannstedt could care less about the Dolphins future. He's playing Jay.

    I'm all for starting Sage if he has a decent chance of beating the Jets. If not, I hope Jay starts. I'd like to see the kid, but I'd rather have a win over the Jets be my final memory of this disappointing Dolphins season.

    C'mon guys!!! This will probably be Jay's last game as a starting QB in the NFL. I know he got us nowhere but he's a tough guy who plays with a lot of heart. I think we owe him this last start. Although I do admit seeing Sage play is an intrigueing idea.

    I gotta look to the future with this one, though I admire your sentimentality. It has to be sage this week. We are going to have to draft a young gun QB this season, and we'll need someone to start next season...most likely Sage. Plus I'm an ISU Alumnus :)

    Let Sage have his chance. There is absolutely nothing to lose from it. Give the kid a chance. In his appearances for the Dolphins he has looked good.

    I would love to see Sage.
    The season is over.
    Let's see if the kid has a chance at this level.
    I personally don't think he's good enough to be our starter.
    Prove me wrong!!!!

    When the dust has settled on Wanny's failure here...

    ...he's going to want his record to speak. For him, that means putting in Jay cos that's who he believes in and a 10-6 season vs 9-7 will look better in posterity.

    But I polled Sage because that's what I'd like to see ;)

    Start Sage?

    I would like to see him in action. I guess it won't happen because if he does good then they look worse as a coaching staff for not giving him a chance earlier. i also would like to see more use of Travis Minor in this game.

    Sage won't play because 10-6 looks better on a resume than 9-7... If Wanny were staying or if we were under a new coaching regime already I might think Sage would have a chance to start but not under current circumstances.

    In fact I would like to see the following players sit next week for fear of injury:

    Chris Chambers
    Ricky Williams
    Zach Thomas
    Jason Taylor
    OGun
    Surtain

    Bascally sit the first stringers...

    I mean wouldn't we rather lose this game anyway? Am i wrong? Draftwise, by winning Sunday we only hurt ourselves and help the Jets.

    The coaches would look quite dumb if he (Sage)came out and played rather well. They're gonna stick with those that they feel give them the best chance to win it. Dave feels that that guy is Feidler.

    As for Minor, I wish he would get more touches as well, but Ricky is the better back, and that's just the way it goes.

    If we are getting our a$$es handed to us by halftime, I think we could see some Sage.

    Re: THE ERA OF JAY FIEDLER IS OVER



    What we have to lose is possibly Sage himself.
