In My Opinion…What’s Wrong With 5th place?

Remember when you were in grade 3, and you had track and field day?  I don’t know what they do in the United States, but back in my day, the teachers would give out ribbons to everyone that participated.  Even if you weren’t in the top 3, you got a blue ribbon that said ‘satisfactory.’

That’s how our Dolphins play; satisfactory.

I don’t know how you can’t be upset with our team right now.  All facets of the game of football, which I love, are not being played correctly…period.

Special Teams: needs to be sponsored by Rolaids or Tums.

Offense: we are an amazing team, if we played in 1920.

Defense: Nolan has been impressive, but why doesn’t this team practice on the jug machines?

Now that all the negative stuff is out of the way, there is a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel.  Say what you want, but all of our loses are against the best teams in football.

    Hey, Phanatic, Nobody hates the Patriots more than me but what’s with the gay slur? “Gaytriots”? You’re better than that.

      This was my opinion, but i can understand your logic.

      I have made the revision.

    What’s even more depressing than us under performing is that the upcoming strike threatens to derail any progress that we’ve made as any serious playoff push is at least two years away (providing the strike is going to be as bad as people are saying).. So either make a Superbowl push this year or in a sense we have (along with everyone else) two years of “rebuilding/retooling”.. Best to plan accordingly..

    The Dolphins are what their record says they are, mediocre.

    Our front office has done a much better job than the previous regimes but they leave much to be desired in building a championship team. We will wallow in the 7-9, 9-7 region until better players are taken from the draft *and* we fine tune our FA acquisitions.

    At this point, I am not so sure we don’t need another QB waiting in the wings as Henne has not shown great strides in his progression towards being a franchise QB.

    Drafting a fast, powerful RB should help next years offense as well as getting speed (needs to get open and be able to catch as well..)at a WR slot. Miami is slow on offense.

    Having said all that, they *should* be able to win the majority of their remaining games – however, we have seen them backslide many times before. I would say we are on a collision course with just missing the playoffs by a game.

    This “Give Chad another chance,” reminds me of an Aggie joke.

    There was an aggie football player that had been working for 12 years to get his diploma. He had set a record in persistence by taking algebra 1 nine times before passing, but finally it came time for graduation. Well, the academic committee wanted to be sure that he was ready so on game day they called out the dean to give him a special test in front of the student body…

    Dean Jones: OK chadd here’s your test, spell Potato.

    Chadd: Oh boy, that’s a tuff one… Poat…, The student body gave a loud groan, and then shouted in unison, “Give Chad another chance, Give chad another chance!!!”

    Dean Jones: Well Chad, it seems your fans really love you so were going to give you another chance… Spell, Eat.

    Chad: Oh wow, another tuff one… E…. A….T. The student body gave out a huge groan and in unison shouted, “Give Chadd another chance, Give Chad another chance!!”

    Is this what we have come to?? I don’t see Chad deserves another chance. Give Thigpen another chance, Give Pennington another chance.
