    How many other smart fans were estatic to see us come from ahead to lose that game? This was a highly important loss because it takes Denver out of the running with us for Luck. Keep the L's rolling!! :hclap:

    me too! I was hella excited at the end. Even opened up a bottle of champagne right after the winning field goal as i was laughing and smiling ear-to-ear.


    it was awesome to see that inevitable and predictable meltdown unfold

    That game today was the best I've felt about a Miami game in years. YEARS !

    God, from the smothering depression of the first 27 minutes of the second half, to the absolute elation when the Dolphins pulled out the victory... what a rollercoaster ride of emotions. So happy they came together and made it happen in the end!

    This game was showed all though Florida and South GA. It was blacked out on Direct TV because so many local stations, stations that in Jacksonvile that NEVER show Dolphin games even when they can.

    I will keep take copies off of my DVR and save them. Of the last 10 minutes or so of the game.

    It was kind of awesome to get excited about a Dolphins game and feel as if the team had actually accomplished something huge in a season when the team is 0-6 and the worst team in the NFL.

    We want long term success.

    I'm sorry you can't differentiate b/w long term and short term since you need personal satisfaction from winning now.

    You do realize that it hurts us long term with inferior draft position in each round. There is a less chance that each of those players will be a success.

    It's amusing that you need to be a blind faith homer to be a "Fan" according to you bunch. When did you get to decide this?

    How many times has the number 1 pick turned out to be the best player in the draft?? I'd say the odds are better if we don't get the number 1 pick to get the best player.

    I haven't felt that good after a dolphin game in years! When this team gets Luck and Cowher I guarantee the fans will have something great to look forward to. Can't blame the fans for wanting Luck at the expense of a long lost season.

    What the?

    Choosing from the entire possible draft picks is better than being limited by the few players you won't draft...

    Choosing from the entire population gives us a better chance to get the best player.

    You really are trying to reason winning now. It makes no sense.

    Thats stupid to say, how many times have we foregone getting a QB and instead gone for a ****ING O-Lineman...All while we see the likes of Matt Ryan, and Drew Brees get away... If your a REAL dolphin fan you would know were allergic to Star Quarterbacks...With Luck coming out this year you got a close to a sure thing and the fact we want our team to tank a season(which was lost when we went 0-3) to get a very skilled "face of the franchise" makes us fake fans??? pffft uFAIL!!!!

    lol....might as well deal with it with humor. I cracked up when Tebow ran in. No need to mope around.

    This is rock bottom. It's over in 2 and a half months. We'll probably have either Andrew Luck or Landry Jones and we'll have a new staff. Hopefully they are more like a Shula staff than a Wannstedt staff.

    Matt Ryan and Drew Brees weren't drafted 1st overall right?? Thats my point, not trying to get us not to take a QB

    um using matt ryan as an example probably isn't the wisest thing to do. he was drafted 2nd, and only because our great leader bill decided a left tackle would do more to help this team than a quarterback.

    Doesn't matter...we get the #1 pick, we draft Luck. Nobody is a guarantee, not even Luck, but Luck gives the best chance.

    Well, if our Draft Room believes you ... they could trade down for a couple firsts & get 2 GREAT PLAYERS instead of only a GOOD one at the top.

    Brilliant ... call it in to Ross & the future coach!!

    not sure if you were being sarcastic but your post made me looked up Chris Long's stat since I havent heard his name since he was drafted... i thought he became a bust but surprisingly hes doing good in St. Louis.

    Lol I'm all fine taking Luck if we get the number 1 pick, but I'm not going to sit around rooting for us to lose every game. I'm just pointing out that there are still good options even if we don't get the 1st pick.

    So you'd rather go 3-13 and get Barkley, than go 0-16 and get Luck who's the surest thing since Peyton? What the **** is the point in 3 god damn wins?

    I would take Landry Jones over Barkley. And if we ended up with Jones as our franchise QB; Yes I would be good with that.

    So if we got the number 1 pick and Luck decided not to come out, who would you draft?? Coples or Kahlil?? Who are you Jeff Ireland??

    People need their wins even though it will hurt future winning potential.

    People can't think long term. If they can't think long term with respect to their pro team, do you think they think long term with respect to their own lives?

    I was nervous there but I knew my boys could do it. Im so proud of those boys, snatching defeat out of the jaws of victory.

    Ha!!! Colts, jags or rams. You think u can suck? My boys will show u who the real masters are. I screamed such joy when prater kicked that Fg. Tears of elation wear coming from my eyes as my heart swelled with pride. I'm so proud of my boys. Hopefully they can stay focused

    Well done boys. Well done

    For me, it's not all about getting luck at #1 overall; it's also about letting Ross and Ireland deal with the mess THEY created. Letting Tony stay, signing Columbo and STARING HIM!!! letting the QB position goin untouched even with the slightly below mediocracy with it. The stupid Tebow day idea was just plain horrible. Being content with letting Sparano being so conservative with leads, or even when we're losing. It's all ofthese things for me. I just have to laugh when we lose like his. It makes menso happy when this front office falls on their faces.
