Now it's really about winning.

I've paid for all this talent and we are still going nowhere. What's a profiteering business owner supposed to do?

The sad part is, I don't even fire these coaches. They just up and leave as if I am the problem.

If these coaches can't bring our Division 3 players to next level, who needs em? As long as you fans stick with me and pay dearly for my consessions and tickets, we'll all be just fine.

You fans don't really want a Superbowl anyway. All you want is hope. Yes we dismantle the team every year because we don't want to match salaries and pay raises, but, at least I give you hope. I did give you Porter after cutting every player that did good last year and the years before. That's got to count for something.

Furthermore, I added more bars and restaurants so you folks could spend more money with me. This is where the fans are. Come mingle.

Don't get caught up in that whole winning thing, it's overrated. If it makes you feel better I'll say it again: Now it's really about winning. Happy Now? See you idiots I mean intelligent fans next week.

Could someone please tell Brinks we need more trucks to show up?

Thank You All!!!

I wish Beck could show even some glimpses but he looks like a high-school QB out there. It's really hard to stick with him when he continually shows nothing. Most rookies struggle but at least they will show signs of whats to come but Beck is just bad.

Beck just bad? guy he has played 4 3 1/2 half games! He could not even grasp the ball before he was laready being pressured or sacked. Sure the ball slipped off his hand . have you ever played futball in cold weather, and you mean to tell me that he could not have had the play Lemon had if Cameron had called it when Beck was in the Game.

Now after demanding that beck be put in the game against the better judgement of the HC , when he plays bad because he is not ready and has ZERO supporting cast he is no good , he is bad , Jeez.

Cameron blew this one he has probably damaged the kid certainly he has shown he buckled to the fan pressure to put Beck in when he knew he was not ready to play w3ith the kind of seros he has around him.

But putting lemon in made zero sense. The guy is limited he won't be here next year and you demoralized your rook. This is big time blunder.
One more thing, those poor souls that deceived themselves into thinking that OL was fixed, you need a left tacle and a left guard BADLY

Cam Moron as someone else put it a while back is our biggest problem. Yeah Beck was bad but look at his supporting cast. The only one who ALWAYS plays well is Taylor.

Dump Cameron--his play calling is horrid. Beck should still have been tossing the ball (if he could.). I like Cleo but he isn't our answer.

Is Joe the Duck available? Bring Back anybody. How about Trent Green? Interesting thought. No-not as the qb --as the coach.

I agree that beck played badly. But it was a mistake to pull him. In the end if you look at Cleos numbers against a prevent scheme... they are about what we would have seen from beck, based on what becks stats say from his first 3 starts.
We all wanted to see beck in there. How many people said "i dont care if we go 0-16, i just want to see the kid play." Well guess what... he is playing like a rookie that has no support. He has no protection, no running game, or even a threat of a running game, and no one who can make a play. How can anyone be surprised that he has struggled? Cleo said it best after todays game... he (beck) just needs more playing time.
Now if we play Cleo... we will score more points... but we will not win. If we play beck... we will not win either, but atleast we can learn more about beck. Can he settle down? Can he handle the pressure? Can he lead?? I personally dont care if every pass is dropped... if he is making the correct reads.... the right throws, accurately, and protects the ball the last 3 games... with no support or protection around him... then that says alot about what he could do if he does get some help next year. The only way to find out about him is to let him play it out.
Its time for us to accept that we are probably going 0-16, everything that could possibly go wrong this season has. Unbelievable bad luck with injuries, coaching calls, and performance. Lets atleast finish the season looking forwards... lets find out if the kid really has any potential or not.

Hey come on now. The Dolphins are the funniest joke on television. I think Wayne is trying to get the team to play their games on the Comedy Channel. It may boost their ratings because the Dolphins Sunday follies are a laugh a minute.

He's a cam SYSTEM QB who will never be more than a career backup qb at best in the league. Another wasted 1st and 2nd round pick.

Everyone has excuses, Buffalo has more injuries, more on IR, rookie QB who is performing good, Coach who knows how to prepare his team while we have a coach and fans who are accepting the excuses we are rebuilding, we have lots of injuries, rookie QB. People with character learn how to win and accept their failures as learning experiences. This team is not nfl material from owner to the waterboy.

He went 8-8 his 1st year with S.D. and followed that with 4-12. His 4-12 team that year was worse,record wise and statistically,than the team he took over.

"IF" something isn't done real soon ... Meaning getting some real talent in the management staff .. The draft will be a blunder and next season will be in the toilet.. One plus .. next season don't look like it could be any worse.. The again they could loose all the pre-season games next year... 0-20

all dolphin haters are rejoicing, and have been all season long. guess all the football lunkheads on sports talk radio (what a sorry group) will have to re-think their love affair with beck.the best aspect of all this is that jason taylor will forever be linked with this disaster. wonder what sour grapes he'll be offering after this great performance..if they do go 0-16, will shula push for an asterisk?????

If Wayne wants to salvage what's left of this shrinking fan base he will fire this "coach" today, before noon. Even if lose the rest of our games 40-zip. He needs to put an end to this bleeding, today, not in January. If nothing else, a morsel of hope for your abused and weary Dolphins Fans, Mr. H..
