    its not even a question. we are 0-5 , have absolutely zero chance at making the playoffs, wins will do absolutely nothing for this team other than keep us stuck in this crap for the foreseeable future.

    in every other year, i would want wins because the gap in talent is not that significant. this year is a once in a generation type thing where we can select a guy who may turn out to be one of the greatest qbs not just of his generation, but of all time.

We gave coach after coach after coach the benefit of the doubt for passing on quarterbacks. We won't do that anymore. So if that upsets some players (that probably won't be on this team much longer) or some media pundits (who can go f%c* themselves), we don't care. We want Luck. We want to win (not just 1-2 meaningless games this year) but for a decade under a competent quarterback and a coach that realizes how important that is.
    What I hate is the S4L campaigns by fans in other cities are not being promoted by the media, especially ESPN. Its only here that they are making noise about it, because, as usual, ESPN has an agenda, and that's to hate on whatever sports team that come from South Fla.

    You're 100% correct that ESPN/NBC/FOX are focusing inordinately on the SFL campaign in Miami when EVERY OTHER 0-1 win team has fans rooting to SFL.

    As I've said before, the Jets/Patriots fans at ESPN/NBC Sports/FOX Sports don't want Miami to become the dominant, relevant team in the AFC East again. You can bet your *** they would like nothing more than to see Luck refuse to play for the team that drafts him and go to the Jets or something.

    jets fans say it all the time that they want us to go 4-12 and not get luck.

    if our biggest rival wants us to win meaningless games, we can root to lose meaningless games.

    You forgot Trent Green, Damon Huard, Brian Griese and John Beck!


    I think some fans actually would rather see the Dolphins win 4 games and start Rex Grossman, Tavaris Jackson or Trent Edwards next season than win 1 game and get Andrew Luck.
    Let's Go Dolphins!!

    I agree with you as long as we get rid of Ireland and Sparano. If we somehow retain the services of the aforementioned jackasses, they will find a way to screw the pooch.

    Cool, what team are you a fan of? Always nice to see other fans drop by our boards. I'm a Dolphins fan... hope Tebow takes us out, lets go Broncos!
