I could not agree with you more. I loved this site during the off-season... But once the season started and all the haters started to write it pissed me off so bad that I barely read anymore. Everyone is so negative about everything.
Speaking from a personal stand point, I was very excited going into the 1st week against the defending Super Bowl Champs.. But based on the way the team played that night.. it was a sobering dose of reality this team was not going to be as good as the hype..
Now speaking for the masses, when someone gets their heart broken... like us PhinFans, there is a sense of anger and confusion along with a mad scramble to analyze... I think this "negativity" you're talking about is us fans being without any control in the situation and all trying to figure out whats happening...
The thing that burns me the most is the Qb thing, It sucks bad that Culpepper rushed back into the season trying to prove himself to all of the fans and haters but unfortunately it didnt go his way this season. People freak out thinking he wont come back or ever play the same way again, His knee will be fine Hell look at mcgahee and how strong he runs now, and we know h can throw the ball.
Back when Saban elected to go with DC rather than Drew, I knew he made the wrong decision... However, none of us fans sat in on the negotiations.. so it very well could have been that Drew was asking for too much $$$ and DC was selected by default.... Regardless of why DC came to Miami, I held a complete open mind and hoped DC would come in here and throw TD after TD.. but when DC started off the season so poorly, everyone should have expected the door to open with all the second guesses and fan retaliation.. Looking back over the course of the entire season, I am more disappointed with the other offensive players than I am with our QB play.. Surely a well placed throw at key times would have helped... but all those dropped passes, missed blocking assignments and stupid stupid penalties.. Thats what really hurt the team..
Saban made the right choice between him and not Brees ( you really think brees would be having the same year here?) and lets just wait and see what happens down the road, over the next 2-3 seasons. Lets see whos going to stay healthier longer and have more success.
At this point of time.. all we have left is hope.. hope that DC plays up to his reputation...
The biggest isse we are having is The offensive play calling, thats the only thing I agree on we should all point fingers on and slap murlakey for calling them. The biggest difference from last year and this year is that we took longer shots down the field last year rather than this year. They never stretch the field and create room for the Rb's to do there thing or help the oline out by geting a couple extra guys in the secondary rather than in there face ready to blitz or fill the gaps.
Personally speaking, I don’t blame the OC... sure there were times that a different play should have been called.. BUT.... all the plays are designed to move the ball down field... So if the players could have executed the called play, then we wouldnt be having this discussion..
Once again, speaking from a personal perspective... Without any hesitation what-so-ever.. I primarily blame CC and RM for the failures of the offense... The dropped passes, blown blocking assignments, catching the ball with your body, tipped interceptions, lack of seperations... that set the stage for the poor offensive team play.. Surely you can point out each and every players mistakes and comment on how this is a team game.. But I feel very strongly in my conviction that had Randy and Chris stepped it up this year, the other players would have followed in their examples..
Everyone is entitled to there own opinion but why would you always look for a way to bring down your home team rather than to pick them up and support them so they can do better in the future. There not going to make the playoffs so what has it killed us b4 in the past no... But we are getting stronger slowly but surely. 5 in a row is not an easy thing to do. Now can you imagine what will happen once they get a couple of other missing pieces?? Shoot look at the Chargers.... Eli Manning didnt even wanna be drafted by them and look at them now. Goes to show...
I think I am safe when I speak for the masses... We fans are tired of supporting a losing team.. Call us spoiled.. call us greedy or bandwagon jumpers or Jets fans in disguise.. call us what ever you wish... but the bottom line here is we arent Cleveland Brown fans... Don Shula ruined us with all those winning seasons.. and all those playoff appearances.. Wanny and Saban has given us.... SQUAT!!! Each preseason, we're all riding high in anticipation of beating the Pats, Jets and Bills and ending up on a high note in the playoffs... only to be disappointed with a total nuclear sized meltdown.. and probably the worst part of the entire ordeal is we all know the talent is there... and yet we (the team) cant seem to find the right motivation to have each player play up to their ability week in and week out...
Everyone is entitled to there own opinion
Why yes we are and this is my opinion and your free to chew it up.. spit it out or add your own opinion...
