Do you want the Fins to tank, rebuild or both?

    The QB will tell the tale. If we play one of the QB's currently on our roster, not named Ryan Tannehill which is very likely, we can never expect much from the QB. Even still I'd expect conservative game plans where we don't ask him to do much. It won't work vs the big boys but there are plenty of bad teams that will beat themselves. It should be interesting.

    I agree. The word TANKING shouldn't even be used by anyone here or in the media when describing the Dolphins this year. We are rebuilding, which probably includes shedding unfavorable contracts, players, etc., however, that doesn't mean we aren't going to try and win. Make our changes and let the chips fall where they may. When Armando and others use the word TANK and then have to take time to describe what it means, then they are using the wrong word.

    Tanking just makes zero sense.

    You're rebuilding anyway. You're probably not gonna compete much at the beggining and if you win games, well, the rebuilding is working.

    The tank we need is in shell firing arm of a QB.

    It's not a bad roster. The Oline depreciated faster than a new car driving off the lot.

    Tanking is not a game plan...it’s the result of building through the draft and a youth movement.

    You always try to win games...but within the guidelines of the above.

    REBUILD ONLY:

    Which means find a franchsie QB. For the record you DO NOT need to tank to find a QB. Just identify the right guy and trade up to get him.

    I think you keep some like Fitzpatrick, Baker, McMillan, Wilson, ballage, etc and then get rid of everyone else and build on that

    Tanking is a bad word. Tanking means getting rid of really good players for no reason.

    Rebuilding is fine, and your still competitive. Add talent to the talent you already have then go all in on a qb.

    We are a QB away from being a decent team, but the young talent we currently have will keep us from truly tanking......along with better coaching.

    It's surprising so many fans don't realize this.

    What fans need to accept is IF the "game plan" "building through the draft," fans will see a competitive team in 2025
