    nfl.com-stick a fork in the 2012 phins

    It's not easy being a Miami Dolphins fan.
    Not in the post-Marino era, anyway. Ever since No. 13 took off his jersey for good, the franchise has struggled to find some measure of stability. The decision to draft quarterback Ryan Tannehill was supposed to change that -- and it still might. But the Dolphins aren't ready to play with the big boys in the AFC. Not yet.
    Miami dropped to 4-6 following a 19-14 loss to the Buffalo Bills on Thursday night. To even sniff the playoff picture, the Dolphins would have to win (at least) four of their last six games. With a brutal schedule ahead, forget it.
    Enter the fork.
    What went wrong

    Tannehill has shown real promise in stretches this season, but he's hardly at the stage where he can do it alone. There simply aren't enough playmakers on this team, which helps explain Miami being ranked 29th in total offense. Brian Hartline and Davone Bess are nice players, but the Dolphins lack a true game-breaker. Someone like, well ... Brandon Marshall.

    Right, because with a "game breaker" like Brandon Marshall, we could go......wait.....6-10! With his dropped TD passes, he turned out to be a game breaker all right.

    The playoffs were w pipe dream to begin with. We flirted with going to the dance, then the carpet was yanked out from under us and we fell face first into reality.

    I totally agree we are done. But now is it in our best interests to lose out or get to our usual 6 or 7 wins ?

    I dont believe in tanking the season unless there is a once in a genration QB like Luck coming out of the draft. We should try and win as many games as possible to build on something and go into next season with a good feeling. I'm hoping for 7-9, 8-8. But going 6-10 could be a blessing because that might mean the end of ireland.

    What went wrong?

    An unknown force intervened and decided to put an end to our cinderella season.

    No coincidence we fell off the map the way we did.

    It was all orchestrated by the hierarchy downstairs.

    That, plus the book was written on us, we don't have any playmakers, and we weren't supposed to be any good anyways.

    This team has no spirit, and no talent.
    I would lot be surprised if we lost the last 6 games.

    This team has spirit and talent, just not enough to provide a winning record in the NFL. I am tired of being negative and in the spirit of Thanksgiving am thankful for the wins we have thus far. Does anybody really think this team is capable of a winning record with our remaining schedule?? 5,6,7,8 wins maybe, but a winning record I think not. I for one am not getting crazy about Wins and loses anymore because we are not there yet.

    When Thigpen ran back the kick for the TD in the Buffalo game I didn't cheer because I knew he couldn't run back 3 kicks, our offense would have to step up and do some damage to win the game, which they were incapable.

    This could all change if we beat the crap out of Seattle.. LOL

    GO DOLPHINS!!!!
