    Lol those 4 qb's all played better than tannehill, while 3 lead their respective teams to the playoffs and one of them started in the superbowl. Get the homer glasses off, they were never gonna talk about tannehill

    This says it all really. Unless you're New York, LA (when they finally get a team), or Chicago, the media doesn't give you attention until you win. Even that will be greeted with skepticism, as it was when we won the division in Sparano's first year. We had a last place schedule and all of them mentioned it, and the next year we had a real schedules and slid back into mediocrity. It's going to be tough to get the respect until we can prove we're consistently successful, and IMHO, that'll be more than a 1 or 2 year turnaround in the media's eyes.

    Look at our division. There was a time when the Buffalo Bills were the perennial laughing stock, then Marv Levy, Jim Kelly, Thurman Thomas, Andre Reed, Cornelius Bennett and Bruce Smith turned them into division winners every year and 3 time Super Bowl participants. They got a lot of media love during that time, despite getting zilch when they were losing. The Jets? Well, they're in New York, so they'll always have shills like Mike Greenberg promoting them regardless of how poorly they do, and elevating them to media darlings if they are average. Even the vaunted Patriots were the laughing stock of the division for years, with only a handful of good seasons sprinkled into a long history of mediocrity. Then Bledsoe and Parcells and Bellichick and Brady and all of a sudden they are the standard to which greatness is measured (blech, sorry, just made myself puke).

    If the Dolphins make the playoffs once, everyone will add 1 line to their Patriots glory articles ... "And Miami is a team on the rise" ... and that's about it. If the Dolphins make the playoffs twice in a row, we'll be where the Bengals are now, "they're a good young team, don't sleep on them." But even now, with the Bengals having been good for a few years now, people still start that division with the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens ... the small amount of air time left they try to squeeze in a few player names and then move on to something more glamorous, like Peyton, San Fran, or Seattle.

    Media attention lags behind success on the field. Have sustained success and only then does the media actually watch your games and begin to notice that you don't suck any more. Sad, but true.

    well being 7-9 every year how much respect should we have garnered? I just dont get why people think that the media has some agenda against us when we havent had a winning season in almost half a decade
