    The trade deadline has passed. Surprise! The Dolphins made no moves at the trade deadline, electing instead to go with the “salvage the season” approach. Like, it’s going to work this time, right? Well, after going 3-1 in September, the Dolphins went 1-3 in October and 1-2 in November. There is no way the Dolphins can win four of their next five games. The Bengals, Texans and Colts all hold the tiebreakers if it comes to that. It won’t.

    Sadly, I am at the point, if I wasn’t already, to look beyond this season. Crazy as it may seem, the offseason for the Miami Dolphins is my favorite time of year. Oh sure, there is the emotional high I get when the regular season does roll around, but really for those four months after free agency has begun, after the draft has occurred, after following all the storylines in training camp, I am left to wonder and hope that next year will be our year without actually knowing it and having to deal with it. There is comfort in that.

    Does wholesale mean we are getting our players from Dollar Tree this year?

    Gase is safe beyond this year...Burke might not be because I dont think Gase wanted him to begin with...now if the team has the same issues next year watch for Rizzi to take the interim job

    I'd be surprised if Gase isn't back. He needs to come to grips that Burke has got to go and his plan going forward can't be Ryan Tannehill. He probably knows this already.

    I want Gase fired after this season but that probably won't happen. Ross is dumber than a rock when it comes to football decisions. But Gase better give up the play calling duties and fire Burke or this team will suck bad next season.

    When you snap the ball to your 3rd RB with the game on the line somebody is not coming back next season.

    If we keep fifing HCs, we'll be more of a laughing stock than we are right now.

    Gase's bizarre play calling seems to be to prove he's a genius. He's not going to change and I was hoping Ross would follow the Packers' lead and fire him after yesterday's "win".

    Gase should be fired but Ross is a moron. Gase needs to have the play calling taken from him. Burke needs to be fired too

    Yeah the good news is we have a good shot at 9-7. The bad News is the one loss has to be to Minny. A loss to NE is the nail in the coffin.

    Of all the plays I have issues with this year, this is the one that stands out.

    Regardless of what everyone wants or thinks. Gase and Tannehill will be back next year. Ross invested a lot in those 2, he brought in one to fix the other and he’s going to give them the benefit of the doubt with all the injuries this year. I know it’s not a popular decision but it may be the right decision.

    Now Burke is another story....

    Agreed but Ross has got to strip Gase of playcalling duty and hire a young innovative mind as the Offensive Coordinator. Bad playcalling aside, Gase also needs to get his *** off the bench and watch when the defense is on the field.

    It's really a matter of who is available at QB next year and who is available for HC? If we don't have better options for this next year then we have to go with Tannehill and Gase. There has to be other peripheral changes: Burke, defensive scheme, trainers, etc.
