Miami Dolphins lose to the Browns, 17-16, and still winless

CLEVELAND -- The Miami Dolphins are winless after three games. Jobs are now officially at stake.

I'm not talking at the end of the year. I'm talking this week, tomorrow perhaps, and on the bye week almost certainly if the losing continues.

Terrible.

The Dolphins, field goal kicking experts, must understand that they are always at risk when they don't maximize drives with touchdowns. That's because other teams do maximize drives with touchdowns. And that helps them win.

This is bad folks. Really bad.

Going into the locker room now. Will report back afterward.

#1.

I hope Ross cleans house, no reason at all to keep Sparano and Ireland any longer this season is already over

YOU GUYS SUCK!

To quote the groundskeepers from the movie Major League "They're shi**y"

Get 'em Mando. Don't let Ireland get away!

I'm sorry, guys. Maybe next time, ok?

Heads must roll +players who want to win must be signed.

Did i cause this?

Those FG fist pumps will haunt my nightmares forever. He has to go, asap, it's that bad.

The Bill Parcells experiment is over. Fire Sporano and start over.

I want SPARANO & IRELAND's HEADS served on a dish IMMEDIATELY!!!

Colt McCoy carried the team on his back in the final drive for a TD.,

Henne is still just never able to do that, and that is the difference.

Glory does not come in between the two 20 yard lines.

Fudgin hurts. I will still root. I reject Suck for Luck, mostly because it's stupid and as inane as "show me the money."

But it hurts. Damnit. Oh well....deep breath....Over it already. Glad I have a full, well-rounded life!

just get rid of sparano...this team has no identity whatsoever...how did we keep this coaching personal after last year.....

Yes jason you helped loose instead of penalty was the only play we noticed you did

I feel like my girlfriend cheated on me with my sister!....Let Down and heartbroken...

I don't think I have ever seen a worst coached, more inept football team than this.

Henne cannot think under pressure. Sparano needs to go. That is an all-star collection of losers in Dolphins uniforms.

FU Henne, FU Sparano, FU MIAMI!

don shula as interim hc right now. then he picks the next hc, gm and qb. do it now ross and then go hard after rob ryan. this is fing incredible. 0-3. geez

0-4 isn't even a question, is it? ONLY thing saving Sparano IMO is the bye week is a natural place to fire a Coach (gives new HC time to adjust). ONCE we're 0-4, here.comes.Nolan? Same DC who's defense just lost the game? Daboll, still getting adjusted first year, on a better defense to a worse team, lol? Not sure there's anyone in-house TO BE HC right now people. No answers from me, just questions.

Sparano press conference transcript:

" well we wanted to win, but sometimes the other team is just so much more talented. I thought we played well, we kisked to late field goals there, and almost had a chance for another one. Thank god chad threw that pick because my shoulder would have been hurting for all the fist pumps i would have given him. Yeah well i guess we have to go back to the drawing board. I think that first win is just around the corner, maybe even next weeks game....

Ireland needs to go as well...this product on the field is much his fualt as it is sparanos...we need to clean house ASAP!!!

Fudgin hurts. I will still root. I reject Suck for Luck, mostly because it's stupid and as inane as "show me the money."

But it hurts. Damnit. Oh well....deep breath....Over it already. Glad I have a full, well-rounded life!

FU Sideshow Bill!

Fire Sparano now.
Gruden, Cowher, Ditka, Fisher are all available

Fire now! Fire now! Don't wait, court cowher or Fischer immediately. No reason to keep the crappy management a minute longer. Thanks for wasting my time and money again. Grrrrrrrrrr.

sorry, meant offense (Daboll)

No you don't, your probably unemployed and owe back child support.

Offense and Defense BOTH stink... the defense was making stops earlier and then the absolute one time they need a stop, they let Cleveland convert a 4th and 10 and then commit a penalty on 3rd and 10 which would have set up another 4th down. I have never seen a team that cannot get a play at least on one side of the ball when they need it. That is a sign of BAD coaching.

Early TD, then FG, FG, FG....it's the Miami Mildcat offense! After all, how many NFL teams will ever score more than 16 pts?

I will not be watching next week's game and may not for quite some time. I haven't missed a Dolphin game since I was a kid, going back to the 80's. I can't take watching another second of this rampant incompetence.

Years of mediocrity are to follow............

Ireland should be the 1st to go-he created this mess and Refused to get Sproles, Jimmy Graham, Shockey and a speedy receiver

I feel like my girlfriend cheated on me with my sister!....Let Down and heartbroken...

Who told you that?

Daboll=Henning JR without the wildcat.......
Redzone=NO points
Ireland=No Clue
Sparano=Just needs to resign b4 it gets worse!!!

The Fins aren't much of a road team this year either - Their 4th quarter play calling and decision making is not that of a winner. They have played 2 of the best teams and now 1 that is not so good and have no leader at all and seem to have no passion for practice or game time.

Well, on to San Diego. Any suggestions, guys?

sigh. i was the last to want to admit it, but i guess it's time to rebuild. the coaches cannot inspire a team to win a game, to seal a deal or to play hungry. i still think henne's good talent. but i'm ready for sparano, daboll and yes, even nolan to hit the road.

Jeff Ireland = Evil owner from major league movie....

Did i play well today, dude's?

Fudgin hurts. I will still root. I reject Suck for Luck, mostly because it's stupid and as inane as "show me the money."

Posted by: Despicable, disgraceful, what a joke

I love you too

Suck for luck.

Can't wait to hear what Jason Taylor blames this time.................

0-16. Looks like we won't even have to Suck for Luck, we can do it all by ourselves.

nobody circles the wagons like the buffalo billz!!! Finz deliver cleveland steamer!!! LOL

While other teams in our division are worried about wins (plural), we're trying to squeak out A win to one of the worst teams in football, WITHOUT their best offensive player. Sigh. All the while Buffalo is tied with the Patriots. Long year ahead.

I suggest they miss their flight!

I LOL'd

We are now firmly, I mean firmly the worst team in the AFC East. I would trade this roster straight up for Buffalo's and I wouldn't even have to think about it.

UM canes and MIAMI dolphins must be sleeping in the same bed

Wow iam envious of Buffalo. Exciting, over achieving and they are just getting started. What i would do to have a team that scores over 30 every game..even if they lost at this point.

Does anyone know where I can get a good burger?

Knowing this team.. They'll fire Tony Sparano and hire Wade Phillips...

I'm sick of the Dallas rejects...

Can't wait to hear what Jason Taylor blames this time.................

But Miami loves me!

If there is dysfunction at the Top no amount of good intentions are going to accomplish anything.

Did Sparano purposely coach his team down?

Know what? I bet you Parcells Paid Tony and jeff to blow the seaon, just to piss off ROSS.

There i s no other excuse. This team is REALLY bad, and is entirely filled with "their" people. Maybe its time for them to go someplace new... so that they can then hire ex cowboys, and ex-dolphins players to suck for them.

We need a new GM now, because he doesn't seem to notice we need a TE bad, all the teams who are successful in the red zone have a TE. Then we need to clean house on all the DBs', all of them need to go. Henne and the offense is very impressive except those TEs'.
