    Yea but, did you ever truly expect anything better than 8-8 heading into the season?

    This was always a transition year, and I think we've shown some great progress.

    Everyone who called for Sparano's head last year had to know this was coming. Philbin came in and got rid of our best playmaker because he wants the team he wants. Which is fine with me.

    I knew if he grabbed a new coach we'd have to wait one more year, as I think most did.

    That's why I don't understand the rampant negativity.

    He also got rid of our biggest team cancer and rampant dumbass.

    Brilliant move on Philbin's part. I knew right then that Philbin might have a chance at being successful.

    Exciting stuff, right.
    ****, i'll be honest. I predicted 5-11 and wanted to upgrade that halfway through the season... now it looks like my original prediction might be right.

    Youre being sarcastic right? You're saying better because instead of starting off bad we're finishing badly? The defense has regressed clearly both from an eye test and stat wise. Theyre not bad at all but we were better last year.The special teams started off nicely but has been horrible the past few weeks, contributing heavily to a few of our losses. More of the same crap clearly

    And op - unimaginable? Winning a Super Bowl is unimaginable - going 7-9 is like breathing for this team

    How do you know this QB is the future?

    I had 5-11 as well. At this point I'm thinking 6-10 or even 7-9 is certainly attainable.

    Regardless, disappointing season at best.

    The defense has played outstanding...the only reason SF scored 2 of their TDs were as follows:

    -Thigpen muffs punt inside the 10 after the defense produced a 3 and out
    -Miami got jobbed by a bs PI penalty on a 4th down that they stopped SF on.


    Last week they were the first team in 5 weeks to hold NE below 30 pts.


    Defense has not been our problem.

    We're finishing badly because our offense has came up lame for about 4 straight weeks, and much of that is due to Tannehill growing pains

    THat's not the case...but I also tend to see good moves for what they are.

    I have no personal agenda to bash or canonize any certain player/ person
