The biggest thing the fish got this year? A replacement for Shula. Finally.

After last seasons debacle I see nothing but great things ahead for this storied franchise. To get it back where it belongs.

you can start by NOT re-signing Crowder. I guess with the knee,
he's three steps behind instead of two.

Defense, defense, and more defense. Once V. Carey leaves our starting O-Line will be 24 (w/Smiley), our WR will be 25, Starting RB 25, starting TE, 25, and a QB of the future at 23. Our defense has some good young pieces on the line but needs youth in LB and secondary. We can wait till 2010 for a game breaker at WR to groom with Henne, Pennington needs the type of receiver we have now. Be smart with free agents (no to TJ. Housh, Chad Johnson, etc) and look at 2nd tier guys like last year who are younger, cheaper and have potential.

This team has no chance next year when you play some good teams.

Can't believe you people buy into this crap. The dolphins showed how bad they are today by playing a team that isn't soft like you have been playing all year.

Man you people have got to be the dumbest fans I've ever seen!!!

That's what they said this year nitwit. Go back to NY. You picked them to go 11-5, right? When you make the playoffs in a "rebuilding year" you are doing saomething right.

not sure if a big time WR will be available for the Fins to take witht the 25th pick... Might have to settle with a DT or ILB/OLB in the first round...

the Fins have to get a real QB instead of Noodle Arm. And the need to get rid of clueless Wayne.

The only reason the Fins looked decent this year is because they played a last place schedule. They are still a bad team.

i dont understand how you can consider them a bad team when they went 11-5 won the afc east and had the lowest turnover ratio in nfl history but i guess thats bad to you and by the way it was supposed to be a rebuilding year.

Find someone to replace "The Mouth" he disappeared when it counted and I cant remember him making a tackle during a run play all season.

Does everyone realize that the schedule has only two 'variable' games. So that every AFC East team plays basically the same 14 games! Strength of schedule is way overated, only changes 2 games when comparing within your division.

please review the video of the end-around to Ginn. You will see that it was a brilliant play call. Had he not dropped it, the left side was wide open for a TD, especially given the Baltimore blitz. It hit both of his hands at his waist. Chad did a remarkable job to just get it to him. That would have made the game 20-16 with 8 minutes left. It is rather amazing to look back and think that we were actually that close.

Also, in the first half when Ed Reed got his INT TD, that was when Ginn fell down after tripping on his own feet. Had he not fallen, it was mostly and up-for-grabs. He could have at least defended it. Thereby making him a 14 points difference.

I find that hard to believe. Based on your posts, I think you see the dumbest fan you've ever seen every time you look in the mirror.

Anything else, Einstein?

You played a WILDCARD game and got blown out!!

That's not what I would call a great finish, but you people would.

Oh and what does NY have to do with me or this discussion?
