Now if the Phins can just beat the teams that they are supposed to beat, we can start to think playoffs. Regardless, the foundation looks good.... I still think A. Boldin would look great in aqua and orange. Add a true #1 corner, some help at nose tackle, and some overall depth, and who knows.... The Jets have paid to win NOW, and the Pats aren't getting any younger, so I don't know about the rest of you, but I am truly excited about the future. This team believes in Fasano, and how much of a P***y does Cam now look in comparison? Cam is a coordinator, and T is a head coach. GO PHINS!!

Miami needs trash the wild cat formation....and need to learn to run better from base offense.The offensive line and running game needs to get better.

We are definitely a playoff contender. We have the best team in our division! Hopefully these last two HUGE wins of Buffalo and Denver give us the driving momentum to keep the wins rolling in!

still need a #1 receiver. I said before that this team is a 10-6 team. It has the talent w/ Pennington at the helm and as long as they stay healthy (which they couldn't last year). They're 4-4, and the rest of the schedule favors the dolphins. The talent is there, but it will be all about the playcalling and execution from here on out to be 10-6. No more wildcat! I've been saying that for weeks. If they use the strength of the team, which is pound the ball with R&R, screens with Ronnie, and playaction, which Pennington is good at.

Rmember a few weeks ago, when we were 2-2 and coming off big wins against SD and NE? Everyone was talking playoffs. A couple players mentioned Superbowl.(Shudder) Then we got smacked 2 weeks in a row. Now I'm not saying that we WON'T go to the playoffs (my crystal ball is broken at the moment.) All I'm saying is lets enjoy the fact we are improving and take it week by week. Playoffs or not, this is an entertaining team to root for right now. Not since Danny was hucking it around could we claim that.

I'll take average over last year any day!

Now no one could say they saw Miami putting together this type of year, even if we lose a few more which I figure almost has to happen, still sit back take a look at the different attitude here.

And all that had to be done was find the right guy to find the right guys!

Why is Dave Jinxing this team, just let them play with no pressure and try and get better every week.

Come on, Dave! We're 4-4. It's a great record considering last year, but it is MEDIOCRE at best.

Until the Fins start beating the "bad" teams, I refuse to be a believer. Yeah, they get up for the so-called "elite" teams, but then they lose to the teams they should beat.

I am very pleased with the progress we have made, but we are so far from being playoff contenders that this column is a joke.

Miami has backed way off the Wildcat in the last 2 weeks. I saw it less than 5 times in all of todays game. It is still a good distraction, they had one wilcat play where Ricky followed Ronnie on an end run. The Broncs got lucky with a blitzer and it only made about 4 yards. I think the Phins have been good about winding the wildcat down and using it to confuse and make the opponents defense work on it in practice. I have to say it is offensive Parcells and Sporano genius, I saw some other Pro and College teams start to use it last week also. Go figure that the Dolphins are defining a new type of offense. I love the quote from Fat Tony that we were not going to run 3 times, punt, and ask the defense to try to hold em. FYI, that was a direct shot at Wannstache, cause that is all he knew how to do. Kepp it up Phins, Looking good!

One more thing:

Get A Boldin now. He's a Pahokee hero and would love to play for the Phins. I vote open the wallet for him.

If Dave wants to know "why not?",
It's because of The Jets.

The Dolphins should use Chad P. or Chad C. running across the middle on wildcat. That should keep the opposing defense honest!

Instead of Ricky use either Chad!
