To craig or whoever said why no criticize defense:

The WHOLE team collpased at the end. It's like a suicide attempt-when we all say it must have been a cry for help--

The Entire team, defense included, collapsed cause subconsciously & conscious;y actually they were sending Ross a message:


BLOW IT UP. ALL OF IT.

ThigPen=Only home victory

Just throwin that out there....

WHY WOULD ANYBODY SUPPORT TONY SPARANO AT THIS POINT ? ANYWAY IT DOESN'T MATTER AT THIS POINT. ROSS HAS TO MAKE CHANGES TO SELL SEASON TICKETS. TONY THE FAT SLOB/QUARTERBACK KILLER WILL BE RUNNING A PIZZA JOINT IN NEW HAVEN NEXT YEAR. CHEERING DOLPHINS FIELD GOALS WITH A PIZZA MENU IN HAND. PEOPLE FORGET HOW BRILLIANT CHAD HENNE LOOKED IN 2009. SPARANO ABSOLUTELY RUINED CHAD HENNE. SEEMS AS THOUGH EVERYONE IN THE WORLD GETS THAT EXCEPT DOLPHINS FANS. FIRE SPARANO A.S.A.P.

superPHIN,

Why do you doubt that Sparano would bring in a top notch OC, next year? Did he not do that with the defence this year with Nolan, one of the best in the game? I believe Ross will insist on it, if there's even a chance that Sparano will be back.

DB, I am coming around a little bit to your thinking about Carson Palmer for next year. I'm not a huge fan and I don't even know if he can win the big game any more but I'm all for giving Henne competition for next year. My only problem is, isn't Palmer under contract next years with the Bengals. I'm not in favour of trading draft picks for him.

Blah,Blah,Blah, Your team lost,You peasants should be use to it by now., The Empress has Arrived, Honour me with your Praises

The pick 6 the WR slipped..... the ball was where the WR was supposed to be.... modern passing game is about timing and the pass has to be thrown before the WR gets to the spot.... the main problem in our passing game is that the WRs are too slow and that allows defenders to sit on the routes... any mistake is a possible INT. Lack of separation = Easier INTs!!!!! The TE pass that was intercepted, I have no idea if the TE stopped before getting going again or if it's purely on the QB. Shuler has not been involved in the passing game till this game.

1 Win
7 Losses

H O M E !!!!


I'll bet Mr Ross wishes he had played those
'1pm September Home Games', n o w !!!
.
.

Speaking of Michigan QB's:

Brady fired his 309th straight pass without an interception during the third quarter of Sunday’s game in Buffalo.

The absolute final insult,

I've defended Henne all year, no more.

Against this crew, up by ten and lose by ten, unforgivable.

Heads have and should roll.

This team has no pride purpose or direction, as high paid as they are, they should be ashamed to take the pay cheque.

BASTAGES.

The Detroit Lions are on a three-game winning streak.

The Empress wishes all you Peons a Happy Holiday, and thank you for all your gifts.Those that sent me a gift, at your time of judgement, you will ask me for mercy, and I shall grant it, Those that did'nt send your Empress a gift., They'll be no mercy.THE EMPRESS HAS SPOKEN

MIKE NOLAN THE DC WAS ASLEEP THE LAST 20 MINUTES OF THE GAME .

THE ONLY YEAR WE WON ONLY 1 GAME AT HOME WAS THE 1-15 YEAR

Canes, thanks for the compliment.

McCreet, we're all frustrated. Only thing is sometimes things aren't as bad as we think. Think of just how bad that defence was last year. Missed tackles by Wilson and Ayodele, too many plays off by Crowder and Porter, a worn down Jason Tayor, blown coverages in the secondary. It's much improved next year and I expect it to be even better next year with the return of Odrick and Merling and the develpoment of Solai. That's what our offence could be next year. Imagine if Fasano was a complimentary TE next year instead of the main guy. Imagine if we had some young 24-25 year old stud running the ball next year, coupled with one of the vets. Imagine if there was another WR for Henne to throw to. Imagine if there was some creatvity with the play-calling. It's all possible for next season.

Empress of Pineapples = Michelle Ryan!

SOMEONE SAID WHY DONT WE BLAME THE DEFENSE.
THE D DID HAVE 2 BAD OUTINGS EQUALLING 14PTS. BUT STILL THEY ONLY ALLOWED 256 TOTAL YDS TODAY TO HIGHLY RESPECTED OC SCOTT LINEHAN.

SURE......... LETS BLAME THE DEFENSE. WASNT IT THE PICK 6 THAT LOST THE GAME? LOL.........

Talk about feeling like a loser. I've been supporting this team for 20+ years. And for 20+ years, they've disappointed.

Anyone wants to take anyone out, please, do me a favor, take ME OUT and put me out of this misery!!!!

Cooz, How Dare you.Your demise will be quite painful.THE EMPRESS HAS SPOKEN.

For some reason...at least right now, if Ross announced Sean Payton was the new Fins coach, I'd just feel like "why get my hopes up AGAIN?"

I promise y'all I WILL not get excited about whomever takes over...UNLESS we get an EXPERIENCED, PROVEN GM unafraid to pull the trigger, instead of always going for the "safe" pick.

Coach and roster changes will come soon!

LOL @DC.

IMA, now you're learning brotha. I'm right there with you. We could get Peyton Manning next year and I'd STILL think we'd find a way to lose. I'm not gonna believe until we've won the division, won the championship game and are IN THE SUPERBOWL. And then...maybe!

Graig M. - well I don't feel that way.First of all being a blue coller worker and seeing the coaches and players making the kind of money they get paid to not perform does not not bold well with me.So if I want to boo them or post my opinion because I think they are under performing so be it.Iknow where I work u underperform or don't show up YOU ARE FIRED!!! So..............

Blame the ORANGE CARPET.


Fans are asking themselves...

HAVE DEMANDS BEEN PLACED ON THE PLAYERS, DURING THE WEEKS OF HOME GAMES, THAT MIGHT COMPROMISE THEIR FOCUS AND PREPARATION ??

The Empress tires of all this whining.I've got a party to attend(Only a-listers)(so I'am sure I wont run into any of you people) Good Night.THE EMPRESS HAS SPOKEN.

Happy New Year to ALL...we may sometimes...OK, OFTEN disagree, but hopefully we ALL bleed our crappy colors. The smiling Dolphin HAS to go, though.

I suppose, if any of us were destined to become HC's in thye NFL or GMN's we would be.
But we're NOT.

However, you don't have a rotting fish slammed up your nose to smell that it is putrid.

I feel our players, especially on defense have given their all, and for that I'm they are to be commended.
Our HC has proven his ignorance regarding game management, player assessment, and QB handling.

His defense of Henning is indefensible.

If Ross does not let Tony go, fans need to make their displeasure known.

Again, Happy New Year to all. lets focus all our energies on wishing the Jets into a VERY bad place.

What this franchise needs is a leader. We need somebody that the players all trust. a face that pops into a casual fans head when you mention this team. You can see how this translates to our squad. There is no leadership what so ever. If this leader is a new head coach, or a franchise quarterback, or running back whatever. We need a guy that the team can get behind and beleive in when it is the fourth quarter. Or when we have hit a down spell. I will say that this team hasn't appeared to quit. But rah-rah only gets you beat. I don't know how far the F.O. will go this offseason. A lot of me says that it would be irresponsible to sell the farm to pick up a quaterback. Part of me wouldn't be shocked or angry. We will have to wait and see

Tell that fat carpetbagger Parcells to go ruin someone elses team next year - maybe the Patriots are looking for a new GM?

Sorry for all the typos in my previous posting.
My wife "princess sour grapes" keeps it freezing in the house, and it's 20f outside.
peace.

CRAIGM,

CINCY DRAFTS TOP 5 FOR SURE THIS YEAR. MOST LIKELY THEY DRAFT A QB. MAYBE WE COAX THEM INTO A STRAIGHT UP RONNIE FOR CARSON PALMER TRADE IF BROWN WOULD SIGN OFF ON IT. LOL...........

Don't worry folks..Sporano will give our heroes the day off....they've earned it

I'd like to see Ross throw some of his money at Tony Dungy = he is guy everyone respects. If not what about fat Rex's even fatter brother Rob? Imagine those two fatties going head to head - at least it wouldn't be boring

How many of you would be for a straight up Carson Palmer for Ronnie Brown trade if he signed off on it?

It puts the cube in the round opening.
It puts the cube in the round opening.
It puts the cube in the round opening.

I think if they put the cube in the round opening
just one more season, it will finally work.

What do you say?

Learning from mistakes is the first step in being a winner. It puts the cube in the round opening. Errrrrrrrrrrr! Mummy..

Bill Cowher, himself, said... (during a September visit)

"The Dolphins Practice VERY SIMILAR to the way the Steelers do."


So...
Their two philosophies are essentially the same.

Sparano got stuck with a Bad O.C.

Remember...It takes at least 4 years to fully evaluate a Head Coach.


If Cowher delays entering the market until 2012... then I might be open to the idea.

Statistics show that Teams that 'clean house'
every three years
NEVER WIN.
.

Fire the DJ -- Keep the Coach
.

Well we better start searching for coaches before the Chargers enter the market!

ALoco is a total idiot. Mike Nolan took this defense from one of the worst defenses in the league last year to a top 5 defense this year. Your comments demonstrate that you could put all your football knowledge into a thimble and still have room for Rex Ryan. You're a real tool.

I would - Brown sucks - so does Palmer... but not as bad as Henne - I'd rather have Ray Lucas than Henne

Hard to believe there are still Henne/Sparano/Ireland supporters. What is it going to take for you to understand?

If we could get Brown to sign off on a straight up trade for palmer and Cincy blesses it. Then we use our first pick to take rb Mark Ingram to begin the Cowher era. LOL..........

There's mediocrity all through the league. How else to explain the Bengals trouncing the Chargers in a must win game for San Diego. Phillip Rivers a very medicore 19-28 for 187 yards, ZERO TDs and a pick. Eli Manning coming up short against the Packers in a very big game for them. David Garrard throwing a ket interception for the Jags in overtime. It's happening all over the league. It's not just us. The reality is the QB gets too much credit when things are going well and too much blame when things are going badly.

WE BETTER SAY,CARSON PALMER SALARY IS 11.6 MILLION UNTIL 2014.

What an embarrasing team to be a fan of. I don't even wear my Dolphins gear anymore because I don't want to be ridiculed. Henne is worthless and is a mirror image of the whole staff aside from Nolan. We have watched teams such as Detroit, Cleveland, Buffalo go from bottom dwellers to exciting teams to watch with our help. Dolphins suck except for a handful of players.

CARSON PALMER THE GREAT IS .....3-11 THIS YEAR W/11.6 MILLION A YEAR UNTIL 2014

Fist Pump is Henning is Fist Pump is Tuna is Wannstedt is Henning.


This cancer has spread far beyond Henning........the entire regime must be excised.


Chickenscratch, Neo-Wannstedtian, Take-A-Knee Football.


Did Fist Pump ever once intervene, overrule, call his own play, etc. He enables Henning.


They ALL must go. Dull as dishwater football.


Plus........added bonus: World's Worst Two Minute Drill. No one else's even close.

NICK SABAN TO DALLAS COWBOYS ..................

DB (if it really is DB),

Brown is a free agent at the end of this year. Your not going to be able to trade him for anything. He'll be free to walk away and do whatever he wants. If there's compensation need to bring in Palmer, then that's a road we should NOT travel.

@cocoajoe:

Most of the Henne/Sparano/Ireland diehards are in New England & NYC.

Our FO is the gift that keeps on giving to the Jets & Pats.

ALL OF them----------gone now!

BTW--WATCH BELLI ROLL OVER JUST TO GIVE SPARANO A CHANCE TO STAY

Was out of town and did not get to watch the game, I was really bummed NOT!!!!!!!!!

Good to see Blowcells took his money and ran.... maybe he get do us a favor and get get another plowboy scap.... Hire Wade Philips!!!

BLOWFISH SUCK!!!!!

Carson Palmer made that play because it was a good play call and he had time to throw ball to a speed guy! Hmmmm?

Am I mistaken or is the sorry ass Carson Palmer 16-21 for 269yds and 4 td's against a team many predicted as a SB favorite? BTW the Bungles are also ahead 33-13 with less than 4 minutes to play.

Boy the Palmer sure is washed up! LOL..........

NICK SABAN THE EX DOLPHIN COACH WILL BE HIRED BY THE COWBOYS .,

Carson Palmer FOUR TD passes against the Chargers in a must win game for the Chargers. Maybe Norv Turner will be out at the end of the year. Bring him in as our OC next year and it's a whole new team.

This team rivals the 1/15 club...

Chris M,

A free agent can be traded if he's willing to sign off on it. How do you think Wes Welker became a Patriot. LOL.............

yep good teams find a way to win and bad teams find a way to ..... well look at the blowfish!!!

Could Rivers be the next Marino? All those Stats with no Championship?? Sad!

PALMER'S SALARY IS 11.6 MILLION UNTIL 2014 W/MARSHALL 10 MILLION A YEAR THE DANSBY W/8.6 MILLION A YEAR ,WE REALLY ARE DOOMED .
