    I was just wondering if anyone else feels the same way i do. I'm 28 years old and since i can remember the Dolphins have been absolutely irrelevant. The Dolphins keep up this facade that they are one of the storied franchises of the NFL, but I think that's absolutely delusional. We haven't played for a conference title in 25 years when Buffalo beat us at home. In some ways were the Notre Dame of the NFL holding onto accomplishments and relics of when Nixon was president. At least Notre Dame won something in the 80s and played for a title this decade. We are the Browns delusional older brothers. At least they accept the reality of what their franchise is. Hell, even the original Browns franchise has won two super bowls the last two decades. So here's to another super bowl sunday where the thought of the Dolphins playing in a super bowl seems like bizzaro world. Now back to another thread talking about our accomplishments from nearly 50 years ago.

    I am 30, and I was actually thinking about that same thing today while I was taking a dump. I seriously doubt in my lifetime the Dolphins will play in a Super Bowl, much less sniff one. The closet they have ever got since I followed this team was getting annihilated by either the Broncos, Jaguars or Raiders in the divisional round. As long as Ross owns this team, they will go nowhere. His unwavering loyalty from the front office to the coaching staff will continue to make this team less and less relevant. From the piss poor drafting, mind boggling FA signings, and lousy coaching, this team will continue to go nowhere. There is absolutely no reason Mike Tannenbaum should still be employed by this organization. Sparano got canned one year too late, as was the same with Philbin. The same will probably happen with Gase. I have just come to accept it is what it is.

    The Fins will never be revelent until Ross sells the team. This franchise has been a farm team since his arrival.
    Been a fan since 1970. That is my 02

    Give me a break! It's all Ross fault? I'll never understand the logic on this forum. It's the owners fault for the multitudes of other teams that don't make it to the big show?

    Is Kraft the reason the Patriots have been successful? He masterfully picked the previously failed Belichick? Hired the right coordinators and front office personnel too?

    I don't have a problem with Ross, it could be a lot worse, he could be cheap or be meddlesome. He opens his checkbook and lets the football guys to their thing, thats all you can really ask for. If Kraft didn't hire a rethread in Belichick and Belichick didn't draft Brady in the 6th how many super bowls would they have right now? Sometimes you have to be lucky. One day our luck will change until than the motto is maybe next year.

    Nothing we aren’t used to. I’m 36 and don’t even remember the 92 game vs Buffalo. It feels like Miami has never hosted a playoff game in ages.

    With NE always making it to the SB it doubles down on us feeling awful as fans.

    How can you not be tired of it at this point.

    The people that still go to the games are crazy to me. I'll watch on tv at the bar or my house but there's no way in hell im devoting my entire Sunday and those resources to support the perpetual losing

    This thread is hilarious. A Dolphin fan on a Dolphin message board asking other Dolphin fans if they’re sick of the Dolphins being irrelevant. Gee, I wonder what the answer will be??

    ^^^Exactly! It's really a crap shoot. Did anyone think Doug Peterson was the next coming that would win the SB in his 2nd year as a HC? Give me a break...

    And stop being cheap and start paying the refs. And mix in some discreet cheating.

    Well the fans that love Tannehill will think Miami is relevant and in good shape.

    The rumor when he was hired was that he was just a gofer for Andy Reid (see Joe Philbin in Green Bay). But, alas, he looks like a guy with serious staying power. And it helps that Philadelphia has been killing it in talent scouting and player acquisition.

    Comparing Doug Pederson to Joe Philbin is as stupid as comparing apples to dump trucks

    ^^^Exactly again! That team certainly had some talent to begin with and they nailed drafting that QB in Weintz! Sometimes it just comes together like that out of pure luck.

    Oh hell no! We love being a doormat!! We live for it. Glad that winning **** has been gone since 2001!!!

    You are kidding, right? You do realize that this team once defined excellence. And that we expect similar performance every year.

    And that this team owes each fan a liver transplant.

    You get that, right?

    Look how easy it was to go 20 years being basically irrelevant. There are many ways to skin a cat, I loved the way the Eagles did it. And the Vikings and Jags did it a different way. But one thing is for certain: giving Jay Cutler $10 million-ish is like trying to skin a cat with a stick of butter.

    Invariably, whenever a good coach comes in said team "always had talent." You want to know what saw Pederson coming? The stats. Statistically, they were one of the best 7-9 teams in league history.

    Everyone is sick of being irrelevant, but I feel good about the coach we have and my thinking is he has a plan to bring us back to being a good team. I am willing to give him the time to make that happen.

    Ah, The Patriot way!!

    Why not, seems people legitimately believe the Pats are one of the greatest teams ever, and Brady is the greatest QB ever...no matter how they did it.

    I'm with you man. This irrelevant thing is pretty fun. Winning is for the birds (pun intended).

    Dolphins front office don't seem to be tired of being irrelevant. They've been drafting mediocre players for over a decade.

    Weve been to 3 Super Bowls in like 40 years. It’s better than 28 NBA teams. So there’s that

    Exactly think about how disappointed Pats fans are. We avoided all of that heart ache and bullshit in Week 13.

    I for one am sick of it! Hopefully Gase & Co. took notes last night and learned what goes into beating our fiercest rivals and gets it done. Time is ripe to dethrone the Pats and take the division back.

    Lifetime of spit, rinse and repeat since Shula was run out of town. Yuk. Best we could muster was the Dave Wanstant error the phins coach everyone still loves to hate but hey thats the current benchmark. Gotta do better.

    Drunk guy McCloughan would do a better job than Tannenbaum and co. He was just hired by the Browns.

    We as fans keep hoping that the FO knows what they're doing. Recently, they got the hottest new HC in football. Gase.
    Gase said he wanted to work with Tannehill. More feel good stuff. They do well together, make the playoffs with Ajayi, and we are happy for their first year. Second year, Gase shows he needs a QB to win. He's not Pederson who can do it with a back up.
    This draft will be telling. Is the FO good with Tannehill, or do they get a 1st rounder?
    Do they address the line?
    Gase has gotten the assistants he says he always wanted. Well they're here now.
    To me, this draft and season will tell us the immediate future of the Fins.

    Meanwhile back on the ranch...Kraft APOLOGIZES to Pats fan for losing the Super Bowl.

    Un freaking believable...They win AFEE EVERY season...They win 8-10 AFC Championships in a decade and are in just about every SB and he is apologising for losing one.

    The NFL is broke...They need to fix the glitch that allows such domination to continue every year. It could be shaking up divisions,more draft picks to low tier teams and more FA help but do something even if it means a coaching musical chairs determined by the league. How does Harrison suddenly become a Pat 3/4 into the season? Something is wrong folks...
    People all across the spectrum outside of NE are tired of it and its costing the NFL viewership.
    Fix The GLITCH
