    He's making analytical points, but still makes the same moronic mistake of spelling Sparano's name wrong.

    If you can't pay enough attention to detail to spell someone's name correctly that you've probably seen a hundred times, how do you expect anyone to put any sort of stock in what you're trying to say now?

    Mando is easily the worst writer covering the Dolphins. He's worse than Omar Kelly IMO

    right on! for way too long, we've settled. most of the planet's citizens are all about that… settling. those that risk; that take the bait and run; that move the dial all the way over to bleed; the "1%'ers" among us… them's my kinda peeps! to quote Dan Sileo "a lack of sack" will only lead you to life's 'woulda shoulda' bench… I like the view (actually LOVE the view), from risk… feels good… scary, but good.

    that's how I'd like our team... scary... but good!

    Yeah, you sure as hell got that right, fascinating that you took your time and effort to post to such a horrible post with a typo or mistake.

    WHAT THE HELL ARE THESE "SUPER MODS" DOING ON THIS SITE IN ALLOWING THIS TO HAPPEN?

    I believe you should write in to the Admins to have them all fired. We as posters should in no way shape or form be subjected to this.

    There is no dripping with sarcasm add on to add. So, I will add that my post was dripping with sarcasm. ROTFLMAO!!!

    I'd send a warning to Ross about continual sucking, and I'd defintely send a warning to Ireland, but to Philbin? I wouldn't warn him about anything.

    If the field goal is made, we have a chance although a small one to stop the Pats and come back and score a t.d. Hindsight is 20/20. I do agree that Philbin has to take his coaching to the next level next year.

    I got a couple takes...
    1) Mando needs SOMETHING to write about because he has jack **** as he is using a dumb email as his writing prompt
    2) As noted above, it is Sparano not Sporano
    3) I would take Marino over Brady. Marino would destroy this Pats pass D
    4) People are making so much out of that last game of the year
    5) I did not know Joe going for a field goal at the start of the game condemned him to be a loser of a coach
    6) If you live in Mass you know more about the Pats than the Fins' staff

    At least Omar has some entertainment value, I quite enjoyed the discussion he had on wqam on the benefits of men sitting down to pee. This Mando clown is completely worthless however.

    It's his job to be thought provoking. The more so the better as that is what people like to read. He has deadlines just like any other journalist does. How about looking at the actual merit of each article's point(s) rather than dismiss everything because it may have a negative or critical stance?

    Newsflash: the Miami Dolphins franchise has been downtrodden for years. There are only so many times a writer can do the silver lining glass half full "well it was a better than expected season considering they were rebuilding!" piece and pontificate about what they are going to do this offseason. The dude has to write an article a day it seems. They aren't all going to be winners, man.

    I'm not defending Salguero personally, either. I am simply being as objective as possible. The person who wrote the e mail/letter to Armando did in fact bring up a valid point and during what is obviously a very slow time for any Dolphins related news, there frankly is just going to be **** like this. You always being Super Apologist #1 is really no better than the negative *** you perceive Armando to be.

    It's his job, so he posts a letter from someone else and that letter consists of 85% of Armando's article.

    How utterly thought provoking!!!

    If I sent an e-mail to Armando outlining why I think Philbin is a good coach and predict that he will become a great coach down the line, do you think he prints that? The answer is NO.

    Also, the majority if the article isn't even substance from Armando, he just posted an e-mail that was sent to him. How come he has never posted an e-mail of a positive nature? 90% of his blogs are Dolphins bashing articles and how "alarming" certain things are. He is an admitted anti-Dolphins person and this is why he posts garbage like this. Ben Volin reads FinHeaven, but you never see him writing a blog by posting an entire thread topic by someone else. He actually writes ORIGINAL informative articles. Armando and Omar write garbage.

    Ben Volin seems like a very nice person but he brings nothing to the table as a reporter. He never breaks any news and its clear that he doesn't have any contacts inside the organization. Same thing with Omar. They're in the dark.

    Joe Philbin's hiring among many others. The Herald breaks all Dolphins stories first.

    Screw the emailer, the writer, Tom Brady, Belichek, and the Pats. Actually, screw the emailer twice for insulting the legacy of Marino. Maybe he should go join the Cheatriots fan club.

    No way the guy that wrote that email is a Dolphins fan. Sounds like a patsy to me.

    Maybe Philbin went for the FG to test out the new, cheaper kicker in cold weather situations? Lol! Carp is making something like 3 Mil next season.

    A North East Phin fan taking Brady over Marino any day of the week? I stopped reading at that point. MIAMI simply has the most fair weather fans you could possibly imagine. And to have a 'sports writer' using such dribble to make a point, is moronic.

    Schefter broke the Philbin hiring. Armando "learned" of the hiring about 10-15 minutes later.

    One thing is clear, you guys are wasting time ripping Armando. If he's using emails as a source of his material he's not sensitive and he's not changing.

    The 4th and 9 play is a dumb focal point but we were definitely overly conservative in that game. Tannehill seemed to believe 10 or 14 points would be plenty to beat Brady on the road. It's still hard to believe anyone praised him for that performance. Newsflash: You can't assign 7 points to every threatening possession, and claim it should have been 21-14, or whatever. That's the same mindset that whines about close losses while taking for granted all the tight wins.

    It's probably a bad break that Tannehill's first game against the Patriots turned into a relatively low scoring affair with Brady not at his best. You can't get lulled into believing they are a normal team. Tannehill had no sense of urgency in the rematch.

    I think it was the other way around. He was also first with the Sparano firing mostly because he was in bed with Tony. Salguero is in bed with the owner and the entire front office.

    Philbin went for a field goal from the exact spot the Patsies passed on kicking one from earlier. The call at hand was moronic and thinking the game would have changed with that field goal is equally moronic.

    Unfortunately we struggle getting ten yards on three downs yet alone picking up a first on fourth and nine. This offense is the definition of conservative. We've lacked the big play possibility for the last five years, I doubt that changes. Philbin may not be the next coming of Shula but we should have a pretty good idea after the season whether or not he's our guy. We either have a good season and he sticks around or he and Ireland both get the boot. I can't imagine a in between scenario. Ireland should get him the players he needs, it will be up to him to make his legacy as a HC in the league. I've been a strong backer of Philbin well before he was signed, I just hope he produces the goods.

    Did Armando just collect another pay check off someone else's letter...? All he did was paste the guy's words down and call the article his.

    No he collected a paycheck because thousands of Dolphin fans clicked the link and went to his blog. This wasn't a article for the herald it was a post on his blog. I would imagine that's a bit different.

    Regardless, he thanks us all.

    Well this is a no point thread by retarded Salguero and the fake Miami fan.Once again wit salgueros negativity about the dolphins taking it overboard in a meaningless game.Philbin taking plenty of chances during the season especially going offside kick in jets game,winning 7 games when the league projected Fins to only win 2 wit no playmakers.Good coach in Philbin and future QB in Tannehill, wit a few more moves on offensive playmakers,pass rusher and Cb we will be easily in the playoffs next yr. Salguero needs to go to boston like he was rumored.Everyone around the league like the well respected ones sees a bright future in the Dolphins.

    I wish someone would send a letter to Armando about Armando:

    Armando,

    I'm a life long Dolphins fan living in New York. Living in NY I have a better pulse on what the Bills beat writers are doing than I do the Miami Dolphins beat writers. I'd take Mark Gaughan of Buffalo articles eighty five times over yours and four thousand times on Sunday. The problem is speculative writing and reaching for news worthy facts. While Gaughan covers more the basics of football like the head coaching search in Buffalo, the up coming draft, team needs and free agency you tend to cover things like "Where is Steven Ross's private jet heading....could it be for a new GM", "Yesterday I talked to several "inside" sources and they all say Egnew isn't going to make it" and of course "what really is the Miami Dolphins off season plan?"

    While the stories you provide are indeed entertaining for there lack of insight they are also readily available from the lowest of website including Bleacher Report. I would like to see more out of you Armando, gaining slightly more football related topics would get you to the level of Omar but that isn't a very lofty goal either, that is like aspiring to star in Killer Klowns From Outerspace yeah it gets you on TV but an Oscar nod it will not. No Armando I think you can get to Ben Volin's level with a little effort and insight. Grab a seat and a keyboard and call of those "inside" sources and grab and interview with Ryan Tannehlll or Cameron Wake. Maybe even some insight into the actual reason Ross's jet heads toward NYC so often his huge development project in Manhattan. Maybe a little depth on the contracts of veterans like Bush, Hartline and Long or maybe an article on how Philbin persevered in Miami even after the loss of his son given the one year anniversary of his death is upon us.

    So in closing, enough of the half truths and speculation that makes up little more than tabloid news, give us something on par with the local town newspaper, we aren't asking you to be the BBC News or Time Life, just good enough to be a Buffalo beat writer with some Miami sprinkled in. That's all we want.

    Thank you,

    The Fans.

    Armando actually took a few shots at you last week when you reported that Sean Smith was going to get the franchise tag. The callers of the Joe Rose show also take shots at you for being an Ireland apologist. The natives are restless down here.
