Won't be the first time we were a laughing stock I'm sure it won't be the last.
or maybe this is what the team needed.
That word, laughing stock is thrown around too much here. It's idiotic.
I think this term is way overused.
They already are a laughingstock. They'll just be a bigger laughingstock when these moves backfire.
Well, one thing is for sure. What the team has been doing for the last 20 years has not worked so why not try something different? Will it work? We don't know but what they were doing wasn't working and it was time for big changes.
How exactly can these moves backfire? Paying Landry would have been nuts, and Suh’s contract was ridiculous from the start. The other two cuts were no brainers. This team was going nowhere as it was constituted.
Now, could the team screw up the rebuilding? Of course, and there’s a good chance they will. Doesn’t mean it was wrong to try.
Tannenclown at his very best!!!!!!
The plan was for these players to all be together with Ryan in 2017 and it failed when Tannehill went down. Cutler was brought in to save the plan as is. Didn’t quite go as planned. The new season brings a new plan. Suh, Pouncey, Wake, Tannehill, (Ajayi), Landry, all are or were in play to flip for 2018. It’s a business. This team does need to rebuild for the next run, as always, be it this year or next or a three year plan. There is never a four year plan. Get it done asap. 2017 is done. Get over that roster, it’s history. Hey, our team is churning and active and there is some movement and things happening worth tuning in for.
We are easily the biggest laughingstock right now in the NFL. What team is a bigger joke right now? I can only think of Indy.
idk about you guys but i was laughing pretty hard all last season....in between heavy sobs of course
for years we needed to just break it up and build a real team. Hoping they will build it the right way now. Thru the draft and without wasting money on big ticket free agents
Yea okay. Laugh away.
Or another thought. We have been a laughing stock for the last 30 plus years, always believing we were just a player or two away.
Will this season be the start of a new and successful team, who knows. But what we do know was what we've been doing for a long, long, long time hasn't been working.
I don't agree with people saying we were going nowhere to justify the moves. Almost all of us have been watching football a long time to know better, hell just last year the Saints had a good damn draft got a fantastic HB and CB and some other pieces and suddenly 11-5 after 3 consecutive 7-9 seasons.
Obviously we have to hit on draft picks to accomplish the turnaround but with a healthy Tannehill, some improvement from our younger players as well as returning players from injury and a good draft....why couldn't we have been the team that has a surprise turnaround like the Saints or Eagles.
I mean I could have sworn the consensus around here was we're a playoff contender with a healthy Tannehill in 2017 and if he can stay healthy the playoffs are a real possibility in 2018.
Now the mainframe is were headed nowhere fast so might as well start over?
You don’t think we are? We are a 3-4 win team right now.
guys, we are a joke in the league. a total joke. living in an NFL city (Denver) it's amazing how much sumpasym you get when you tell folks you are a dolphins fan.
not sure what those that don't think this are on, but aside from the browns, our dolphins are the butt of the league and have been for some time .
Good article by Cote. I'm happy to see ONE of the beat writers calling it like it is, instead of the Tbaum *** kissers.
Unfortunately, we are already a laughingstock. **** is only going to get worse.
Will be? Try have been for the better part of 2 decades now.
They will backfire. Hard.
We should be proud of our continuing excellence of ineptitude and buffoonery (with a dash of baboonery sprinkled in).
Seriously. In the era of parity and Paleo it's not easy to sustain the impressive streak of stank we've been blessed to witness.
None of this would have been possible without Ross the Clown!
Wait! I'm confused. I thought they were already a laughingstock according to many on this board? So they aren't and will be IF these moves don't work out?
This board needs to make up its mind. Are they a laughing stock already or are they not?
You should just tell everyone what to say, and how to say it, since you have the pulse and voice of the board collective.
We're still on this? Laser13 you have an entire board to impress with your expertise. I'm not one of those members.
Have a great day!
I’m not trying to impress anyone. Nor am I making subtle jabs at anonymous strangers on a message board, simply because their opinions don’t align with those of my own.
It’s weird, since I was under the impression that you had left because you’re above mingling with the peasantry discussing the subject matter dedicated to the site.
Well, it definitely makes you wonder what the plan is. Right now, the team has opened up holes at slot receiver and defensive tackle. There are some young players who could step up like Grant or Carroo in the slot and maybe Phillips at DT. But finding replacement as good as Suh and Landry, or even close to that level, will be difficult.
Then there are the already existing holes at guard, tight end, and linebacker. Plus, you've got to wonder about the quarterback position with Tannehill coming back from an injury and in a draft with four or more qb's who could be upgrades.
To me, this looks like a total rebuild purging talent and contracts to possible make some big moves next off-season.
Meh, I haven't been emotionally-invested enough to laugh at this team in years. Mostly just a chuckle at this point as I change the channel to better football.
I don't want to go through the series of events that took place last year but aren't we already. The coke head coach kind of takes the cake with the LB who choked a bartender over $40. If we aren't already a laughing stick who is?
More than we already are? Or were during 1-15? How about after losing a playoff game to Jax 63-7?
Do you think people sit around and laugh at teams like it’s 5th grade? Cleveland has won 4 games in three years and they’re being talked about as on the rise now.
No one really cares. Certainly not as much as you think they do.
This fire sale has been needed since Saban was here, every year its been the same crap and we just put band aids on everything and the band aids have been over prices, often injuries vets that don't produce. We need to blow it up and build from the ground up. My only concern is Tannenbaums philosophy, you really need to build from the draft, but he loves trading picks and over spending in Free Agency
Is there a such thing as a daring move coming off a 6-10 season. If the team replaces Landry and Suh with mid-level talent and finish at .500 that's actually an improvement and back to norm for most of the recent seasons. If they fall below 6-10 they will be in a good spot for 2019 with cap space and high draft picks.
Dolphins are a joke. No one outside the organization thinks much of this franchise anymore.
Same goes for Tannehill....people around here refuse to believe the obvious though.
I know. We hired Jay Cutler out of retirement and gave him ten million bucks. So let’s not act like laughingstock is new or something.
Could make us the laughing stock or the start of something good either way....no playoffs this year!
Sad thing is though, if Tanny isnt hurt we arent a 6 win team. Yes, one player DOES make a difference.
Sure do. Of course, I'll reevaluate after FA and the draft.....
