We tried like heck to motivate the guy (I think he has weight clause in his contract) but I think we just gave up on him. Good luck...with your "pro-bowl" player.

Oh I'm sure he'll be a fvcking gem. What's the over/under on how many snaps it takes for him to give up his first sack? Let's say 3. I'll take the under.

The fish haven't tasted victory since Sept. 22nd, and should come out livid as all hell @ the start of this game. Look for players foaming at the mouth here, seriously! A loss would give the Dolphins 4 in-a-row, and push them to the brink of a divided lockerroom. I expect RT to show us his best against the Pats, and once again, prove the doubters wrong.

The coaching staff damn well better have them ready to play this week, after the horsesh!t they put on tape yesterday. For them to come out so unprepared for a game against Thad fvcking Lewis and the fvcking Bills at home... Just unacceptable, and that falls on the coaches that this team wasn't ready to fvcking eat Buffalo's children out of the gate. Horrible playcalling. Horrible o-line. Great job by Tannehill to recover from the rough start with the 3 TD's and getting the team in a position to win, but ya gotta hold on to the ball there kid. I know Clabo is garbage, but ya gotta hang on to the ball. This was a TEAM loss, soup to nuts. Everyone had culpability. If they beat the Pats, I'd dance the jig of all jigs and then another jig after that.

Tannehill still gets a free pass. I don't get it. The loss is more on him as it is on the O-line, which was pretty good most of the game. When it's all said and done, the defense was responsible for 13 points. Tannehill was single handedly responsible for 10 lost points (the pick six and the pick in the red zone that cost at least 3 points).

All I can hope for at this point is that the Jets-Fins game on December 1 is meaningful for the Phins.

I said everyone had culpability. That includes Tannehill. Just because I don't hate his guts and didn't blame the loss completely on him and him alone doesn't mean he's getting a free pass. I said he needed to hang on to the ball. The picks were both mistakes. But if you can't see the positives as well, then you're just hating to hate. He brought them back and got them the lead, and he showed character to respond from the bad start instead of going into the tank. It was a good response to adversity, which you want in a QB. As hard as I know it is for you to do with Tannehill, look at the whole picture. That said, he had his share of blame in this loss and that is undeniable.

Apparently the Dolphins complained to the NFL about the Ravens pushing a player through the line on their failed game-tying field goal attempt a couple of weeks back.  The league admitted that it was a missed call and vowed to make that a point of emphasis for the rest of the season.

 

Thanks guys!!  :thumbsup:

What a disaster. I fvcking hate this franchise, they do it to me every time I dare get my hopes up. I should've learned a long time ago. And CR, who are we kidding- 31-10 NE domination and we all know it. No way we're going into Foxboro with the Pats off a loss and beating them after that clusterfvck monstrosity piece of sh!t yesterday.

 

The Pat D has taken a major hit with the injuries.  They're back to being meh again, after showing signs of FINALLY becoming pretty good. 

 

And the Pat O keeps showing signs of what could be, but can't find any consistency.  I pointed this out in the Jet thread, but don't be fooled by Gronk's 8 catch, 114-yard "looks good on paper" day.  He was targeted 17 times.  Kinds of tells you how Brady feels about throwing to the rest of his receivers. 

 

There's the makings of an upset here...especially since the Pats don't seem to be able to pull away from their opponents this season.  Don't be surprised if the Dolphins are in this game in the 4th quarter...not saying they'll win for sure, but they'll have their chances.

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

One advantage of rooting for an out of town team is that you don't have to feel as embarassed about bad home attendance.

There will probably be more Fins fans in the stands in London than there usually are in Miami, sadly.

Very true.  I've seen the Patriots play the Dolphins twice in Miami (in '98 and '99...Pats won in '98 14-12, and Dolphins won in '99 9-6 in OT...both games were about as lame at the scores would indicate).  While the Dolphins are clearly one of the those "national following" kind of teams (along with the Raiders, Cowboys, Steelers, etc), the local fans really don't seem to care much in Miami.  The crowd was about 30%-40% Patriot fans at the games I attended.  And during our first game, my friend Jim (huge Dolphins fan) said, "Damn bro, I think there's more friggin' Dolphin fans in NJ than there are in Miami!"  Miami is an odd sports town.

I saw Fins-Pats in Miami in 2002 and my section was Foxboro south. I was surrounded by Pats fans, I felt like it was a road game. Truth is its just never been the same since they moved out of the OB. Joe Robbie has never really provided much of a home field advantage. Combine that with a horrible decade and a half of football, and this is what you get.

Yeah, I didn't know what to expect...at that point, the only road Patriot games I'd been to were at the Meadowlands, against the Jets.  I was pretty surprised when there seemed to be more Pats fans in my parking section than Dolphins fans...even more so when I saw the number of Patriot fans in the building itself.  And yeah, Joe Robbie is a very "meh" kind of building.  Even though it's not that old, it's probably already one of the more dated NFL stadiums out there.

So what's Tannehill's excuse this week?  The Pats gave the Fins every opportunity to take the game, with Brady basically not having a hand to throw the ball.  Tannehill just finds ways to lose.  But he never gets called out on it, so there's no incentive for him to improve, if he were even capable of it.

 

At this point I don't even know what to say.  There's really no hope for this franchise.  They guessed wrong with Tannehill, and they're not really bad enough to get a true franchise QB.  Hopefully they'll be awful when it's time for the QB from Florida State to enter the draft.

It's sort of like asking what's the next move for the Jags.  It doesn't really matter.  But in our case, it's even worse in that we still haven't hit rock bottom.
