    I do believe that had we done the Suck for Luck we would have zero Super Bowls, just like the team that got him. It’s an idiotic thing to even propose. It’s a team sport.

    So if I had a choice of a "Suck for Bush" or a "Suck for Luck"

    I know which one I'm taking. :rolleyes:

    Nobody is asking the Dolphin players or coaches to "tank" or lose on purpose. Why does this keep getting brought up?

    You know how you organically "tank"? By shedding every veteran contract you can get away with and talk about "youth", skimp in free agency, and give up current season draft picks for ones the following season. All of those moves mean you're going to have a really rough time in the upcoming season, but it's for the greater good. There's literally no difference between that and "tanking" except that "tanking" requires sticking with that approach whole-heartedly and not in half measures, like signing Fitzpatrick who can actually win a meaningless game or two.

    That's all I'm expecting from the team. Don't half-*** it. If you're going to hit the reset button, then do it.

    Exactly. So it’s not tanking. Teams may do what’s best for the future cap wise and such. But shedding contracts and stuff like that is not a design to lose, ever, in the nfl.

    Signing the likes of Fitz is the standard. Teams are always looking for a couple extra wins.

    Then unless you're in charge of controling the world dictionary quit trying to re-invent the word "Tank".

    Love you guys that get pissy because they cant call it what it is.

    There is no such thing as a reset button in football. Stop trying to paint it what it's not because you like the word tank.

    We're rebuilding.

    There's no reset in football?

    What the hell did the front office just do this offseason then? What would you call it?

    You're arguing semantics and textbook definition of things. Is this a delusion tactic?

    Especially if that shedding is no surprise and people here were looking to dump these players anyways. All these moves they made are no surprise. Well, it is actually a surprise that we have an FO now who actually does it but from a production/contract value: no surprise.

    Tank for Tua was never real. It was created by the misinformed South Florida Media who twisted Stephen Rosses words.
