 Happy Holidays brutha

You pretty much summed everything up. Jason Fox...god Awful The entire line is awful.  It's going to be interesting to see now that Lazor is gone how the play calling goes with Zac Taylor.

The Dolphins don't need sexy picks next season. Get the o-line, solid corners, and linebackers next season. I don't care if it's through the draft or free agency just get some. We don't need no WR's, we have running backs that are fresh because the run game is non existent for some reason this season, hell trade for the entire Cowboys o-line lol.

Anyway looks like the house cleaning is moving along in the Dolphins household with Lazor gone....Any thoughts or suggestions on who the Head coach will be next season?

Aloha my brutha  our team seem to be going in the wrong direction  The defense allowed two 100 yard rushers in that Bills game

unless something drastic changed since that Bills game I'm afraid to see how the Dolphins defense can handle the High Tempo Eagles offense. I'm looking forward to Jay Ajayi sharing some carries with Miller to keep the run game relevant.  

Anyway brutha good luck on your wagers and the Dolphins this weekend

The Dolphins have been spiraling down since the 2 wins against below average teams. I was hoping for a better performance against the Bills but was disappointed of the outcome. The Dolphins defense allowed not one but two 100 yard rushers in that game. The defense couldn't stop a few crucial 3rd and long plays to keep the game competitive. Cam Wake missing in the line up was key in the Bills game but still no excuse on such a poor performance by the defense.

Unless their has been a drastic change since the Bills game I cannot see how the Miami defense can stop the high tempo Eagles offense. Murray seems to be coming around and Sproles can be really dangerous as well.

I have been saying this quite too often about the Dolphins O-line but I'll say it again...Protect Tannehill and give him time.

The return of rookie Jay Ajayai should be some sort of a bright spot for the Dolphins run game to share snaps behind Miller. I feel the Dolphins been abandoning the run game too quickly all season but in turn I guess that's what they need to do when the fall behind early and can't convert on 3rd downs being one of the worst in the league in 3rd down conversions.

Being a longtime suffering Dolphins fan still hoping the Dolphins pull out the Victory in this game but I can only hope.

You could be right brutha good luck on your wager

I have much respect for the Patriots as they have been dominating the AFC for quite sometime now. The Dolphins 2 wins was nice but against teams at the bottom of the barrel. This will be the Dolphins true test. I'm hoping for a Dolphins victory of course but I'm just hoping the Dolphins stay competitive for 4 qtrs. of football at the least.

Houston - 24                                          Miami - 13

Texans +4                                    under 43.5

Patriots up next for the Dolphins. Texans catching them at the right time. I hope.

Houston - Under    The posse is heading in to South Beach

I was just skeptical of what could happen with a new coach my brutha and didn't want you to think it was going to be a cakewalk for the Titans  ...sorry about your wager on the Titans

The Dolphins are like 0-7 against the Texans so I'm Leary about this game for them. It was during coach Kubiak's time that the Dolphins were losing against them so I'm hoping it's time for the Dolphins to finally win one this weekend.

The Dolphins defense finally came alive and the running game became relevant  again. Not sure what's going to happen here but like I said I'm hoping for a Dolphins victory.

good luck on your wagers my brutha

EW I agree with you but I want them to make the playoffs lol. That's all I ask as well...play hard for 4 qtrs. of the game.

This next game is tricky...The Dolphins have yet to beat the Texans. They seem to have the Dolphins number every time they play...I'm hoping they can finally beat them this weekend.

Congrats on your wager EW

I don't think Miami is ready to win on the road after that double digit loss in London.

GL TitansFan your team is ready to turn the corner. Looking at their schedule they could find themselves in the thick of the race come December.

Titans - Under 

You are breaking my heart my friend  ..but you are right. The only thing I can say is that with Interim Coach Campbell coaching his first NFL game ever.I would be a little hesitant on even wagering on this game....sometimes a interim coach can put a fire in a teams belly.

Good luck on your wager my friend

I would love for the Dolphins to win this game but at the same time I'm hoping my home boy Marcus Mariota has a great game as well. I'm hoping more for a Fins victory though.

Good luck on your wagers EW

EW all I can hope for is a great finish to this season with Campbell in charge now. Seen that they just hired Al Saunders to help with the offense as well. Thought for sure Coyle would be a goner by now but I guess we will see.

All off season I couldn't wait for football to start...now I'm almost hoping it would end. I'm depressed, irritated and frustrated but still a fan.

I agree with you and don't see why Tannehill gets picked on...Sure he is not perfect but give him a solid offensive line I'm sure he would be so much better.

Also another reason I really like Rex Ryan is even though the Bills were up 27-8 when the Bills made a mistake he was flipping out like the score was 0-0. This is the kind of coach I want because this is the type of coach I would be. Paying attention to extremely small detail is the difference between winning and losing. I am all about screaming at your players when you are ahead, and being the nice guy when you are losing trying to motivate. Rex Ryan is just a great coach with fire and I love that. How great is it that he also called plays late in the game so former Fins players could embarrass Miami like Chris Hogan.

Also, how nice is Charles Clay? Why would you ever let that guy go. Really wish they had brought him back

Even though I hated him as the Jets coach I would of welcomed him in open arms if he went to Miami.

Clay was a huge loss and hated to see him go...their is a glimmer of light with Jordan Cameron so I'm hoping he starts shinning soon.

This Dolphins offense seems so night and day from pre-season. The starting unit gave me hope during the preseason that this could be a solid year. Seems like the offensive game plan totally changed during the regular season...could be just me nit picking but not the same type of offense I seen during the preseason with the starters.

A loss is a loss and hate it when the Dolphins lose but I took losing to the Jags harder than losing to the Bills. Although they are division rivals which makes it a tougher loss the Bills have a pretty solid team. I wanted the win but wasn't surprised that they loss. I expected the win against the Jags that's why it hurt more.

 Dolphins looked unmotivated, stupid penalties are killing them, the o-line is just plain terrible, the defense can't seem to stop the run at all this season, and the coaching staff just seems clueless. All these things should of been taken cared of in the off season...I know you can't foresee injuries but the staff should of picked up better depth players...like I stated earlier McCain can't cover anybody! The staff need to go out and find someone that can or start giving others a chance to play cause if McCain is the best chance they got...the loses will just keep on piling up. Anybody know how Tony Lippett is doing? can he start at corner?

Win or lose I'm still a true fan but C'mon on Dolphins wake da hell up!!!!!!!!!

I know the London game is early for the fans on the Mainland but I live in Hawaii so that London game is even earlier for us. If I'm not mistaken it's like 3:30am...I am not waking up that early to watch the fins get their arse kicked again so I'm hoping to wake up this Sunday to a Dolphins victory.

Good luck on your wagers EW!

Aloha my brutha

Tough loss yesterday. Not sure if the Dolphins overlooked the Jags being that the Bills are next but tough loss. I'm hoping Albert gets back on the field soon as the line looked terrible once he left the game. Landry is a beast and Tannehill put up great numbers until Albert left the game. Rishard Matthews is a huge surprise for me this season... a well welcomed surprise I should say. I have Miller on my fantasy team. I was hoping for a better game from him yesterday but he left with an injury but had nothing going on while he was in anyway. The Dolphins seem to be shying away from the run game early this season.

Not sure what's going on with the defense. Maybe I expected too much. That stupid penalty on Vernon yesterday was just plain dumb and undisciplined on his part. I just seen on the news that Will Davis was just traded to the Ravens for a 7th round pick next season. Grimes needs some help back there as Aiken and McCain was getting schooled yesterday.

No doom and gloom for me yet as the season is still early.. win one ugly and lose one ugly...it is what it is and now on to the next.

I'll stop by again to get your useful insights as usual. Good luck this season brutha

LET'S GO DOLPHINS!!!!!!!!!

Last weeks game against Colorado was just plain sloppy. Wittek is inconsistent and the Ohio St defense will have a field day with him.

Watched Ohio St against V-Tech while I enjoyed my Labor day off. V-Tech kept it close to start but once Ohio St's offense got it going V-Tech could not stop them. Jones, Miller, and Elliot was just too much for that defense to handle.

I don't see the Warriors even staying close in this one. The only way this stays close is if Urban Myer has mercy on them.

Welcome back to football everyone

I would not mind at all if they got rid of Daniel Thomas. I like him and my biggest problem with all the heat he catches from fans. Everytime he touches the ball he runs hard and is pretty productive. He is nothing more than a 3rd down back but he is solid. I really think Dolphins will bring in a power back, hopefully they can stay healthy and produce. Miller/Moreno would have been a sweet combo and would have helped Tannehill and O-line a lot.

As they say, there is always next year. Coyle has to go. No excuse for the defense to look like the best in NFL and then completely fall off the map. He needs to go and take Wilson, Wheeler and Misi with him. 

lol and he can take Ellerbe as well with him. That should free up a lot of cap space next season. We need excellent depth at o-line. The starters are solid but once injuries started occurring it all went downhill from there. That's why I stated we don't need sexy picks next season. I'd rather solidify the o-line, linebackers, and DB's. The Dolphins could have Andre and Calvin Johnson on offense and would probably still be a bottom tier offense without a solid o-line. I love the toughness of Tannehill. Taking that many sacks since the beginning of his NFL career and he keeps on ticking.

The 2 issues I want him to work on in the offseason is his accuracy with the deep ball and his leadership. There were some issues that I saw with the short and mid level passes to where he threw the ball behind his WR's as oppose to leading them but he got a little better as the season progressed. I would like to see Tannehill get more vocal with his offense. Basically get on them when they miss a block, run the wrong routes, drop balls, etc. as oppose to the "aw shucks" type of emotion. I could be wrong and he does get on them but I basically never see it. It's basically the same problem with the Hawaii Heisman winner Mariota. Got all the talent and athletic ability but lacks that vocal leadership.

With all that said I love the improvements Tannehill has made every year so I'm looking for an even better year for Tannehill next season.

Well brutha the season is over for us Fin Fans. Another 8-8 season in the books. It was nice chatting with you this season but I'm hoping next season we are chatting about the Dolphins finally making the playoffs with a chance to win the Super bowl lol.

I'll probably look for you during draft time. We basically need everything you can think of in next years draft lol. We don't need anything sexy ( QB, RB, WR) we need some trench players. Solidify the o-line, linebackers, and DB's are the important ones on my list during Free agency and the draft. But that is just my opinion. Rex Ryan as DC would be a nice bonus. I'm not sure what happened to the defense later in the season but they made Geno Smith look like Marino yesterday.

I'm not hooked on Thomas like you but Miller was a bright side for me this season. I don't think Moreno will be back next season but if he can stay healthy I would welcome him back. Gore might be an option as I think he is a free agent next season but that is looking too far ahead.

Anyway take care brutha

Aloha!

I'm kind of on the fence with keeping Philbin. I haven't been impressed with his coaching but at the same time the constant change of head coaches for the Dolphins have made the team so unstable.

I think Coyle might go but I don't know.
