    We seriously lack consistency, toughness and depth. The coaching staff is uber conservative and lack game awareness and ability to adjust to second half adjustments.

    Philbin preaches fast starts, while fast starts are essential to great teams, nothing is more important than closing!

    Most of the all, the single most important criteria we must strive for is to bring impact players at impact positions to impact our seasons so that we can impact the post season!

    The conservative approach to winning games has been with us ever since the Marino era closed.
    From Wannstedt to Saban to Cameron to Sparano this team thinks winning by 3 points is awesome. I can't remember the last time we actually pounded an opponent and won by 30+ points.

    We leave too many plays on the field a game. IF we hit wallace one more time a game for a TD its the difference between a top seed in the AFC or where we are now. We are that close. The record thing i hate. You are what you are, i agree with that but its viewed the wrong way. Its close and it should't be, i don't know how we are that good sometimes but we manage to blow a gimme a play a game. Keep working at it. I think the tannehill wallace deep connection is coming consistently.

    Sorry I had to fix that for you. "Winning" for part of a game means less than nothing when you do it over and over and over, year after year after year. Everybody knows "almost" only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades, although this team might be able to close out a win if they were equipped with the latter...

    So picking up big leads in three quarters is talent, but getting humiliated in one is coaching?

    Maybe part of the reason why we're blowing leads is because we're not talented enough to avoid being exploited from time to time.

    At halftime against the Panthers almost all posters on this message board would predict that we'll lose the game eventually because we were kicking field goals instead of scoring TDs, because we can't make proper halftime adjustments, because we just can't run the ball when we need to. That was pretty interesting to say the least. We have no trust in this team whatsoever. That's not a sign of a good team. Heck that's not even a sign of a mediocre team. That's a bad team. And amazingly enough it's been like that for years now, regardless of the coaches or the players. I don't understand this to be honest.

    Anyway, we're 5-6 but we're only in the playoff hunt because the AFC is lousy this year. Good teams take care of the Bucs and the Bills and don't have this discussion. We're not good and we will most probably miss the playoffs for the fifth straight year.

    Almost good is like...

    Almost eating a prime rib,
    Almost winning the lotto,
    Almost getting a raise,
    Almost became a doctor, etc, etc., etc.

    The one sure thing this team is not almost in is being frustrating.

    This is emblematic of a young team with a relatively inexperienced QB. While Tannehill isn't responsible for most of the losses (Buffalo game, being the exception), he hasn't elevated the team either. An upper echelon QB with the current roster wins the games against Baltimore, Buffalo, NE, Tampa and Carolina IMHO.
    What I would like to see going forward is continued development of RT and an offseason dedicated to upgrading the O-line and replacing Wheeler.
    This defense is solid, but could use a John Offerdahl/Zach Thomas/Kuechly type player in the middle to direct the defense.
    This team is not as bad as some of you think it is, and it would be a huge mistake to "blow it up" in the offseason.
