    Sometimes to get better you have to tear it down before you can rebuild it. These decision are hard and easy to criticize especially when you are sitting in your AC office and hitting enter after writing an article like this. An inflated cap, some bad contracts, not to mention a couple players with bad attitudes and somehow this man is suppose to work with that.........expect changes whether we like them or not.

    Another forum post at best disguised as an article... Write something! Anything! Those ads need somewhere to land...

    This is not directed at you DK, just thinking out loud here....

    Gase also created that momentum.

    This is either the beginning of something special or the beginning of a complete disaster.

    I'll like to believe that it is the beginning of something special.

    I can't predict the future, I can't claim to know what's going on in Gase's head or behind the scenes.....but what I can plainly see is that Gase is not playing around anymore. That guy is serious, focused and win or lose he is setting up what he wants. I for one happen to be an optimist so I believe it's going to work. He's earned that from me after having pretty decent success through his career.

    If it fails then we'll know we don't have the right guy, I just don't see that.

    I like him during the season, but it seems he's making on year 3 the decisions he needed to make on year 1. Usually in the NFL a HC doesn't have a long enough shelf life to do that

    Thr premise for the articles title is flawed IMO. Aside from Jay who of significance was "churned" during the season?Everyone else was after the season.

    I don't know how to measure momentum in the off season. If he is unhappy or disagrees, OK. But lost momentum?

    The author should have just said "I think Gase sucks" and left it at that. Would have saved a lot of unnecessary typing.

    Should we have just kept the team intact that went 6-10?

    Recipe for success, IMO.

    Constant churn of talented players is quite the hyperbole.

    Oh look, another writer with a gloom and doom piece.

    Every year, around this time where most of the trades are done and we're waiting for the draft, the sports beat writers put out pieces about why their teams will be great or abject failures. Here is the thing: if they were any good at the stuff they are writing about, they would be professional gamblers or a coach instead of just an arm chair flack trying to get people to read 800 words.

    Can we please, please, please skip this crap for just a little while?

    The defense has only 2 starters remaining from the roster Gase inherited. Cam Wake and Reshad Jones. 4 if you count Lippett and McCain.

    The offense has 4 starters remaining. Parker, JaWuan James, Stills and Tannehill.

    That's quite the turnover in 2+ years.

    The past 15 yrs told me anything, it's that to NOT expect too much from this squad.
