Who cares a win is a win. Wayne has been looking to sell this team behind our backs. That's why he skimped this year. Ne could have spent 10 million more on talent and spent the money on the right talent. Not Joey. Than he has the nerve to leave us with 7 home games. www.NoGlobalNFL.com

The Dolphins are the best 1 win team in the history of the NFL.

Why is no one commenting on the play calling with about 2 minutes left in which the ran the ball 3 straight times up the middle from the 10 yard line??? The ultra conservative play calling almost cost them the game as: 1) They didn't go for the kill by going for 7! 2) They left way too much time on the clock for only going up by 3.

It's that type of play calling losing coaches are a part of, and winning teams are not. 0-13 and you don't go for the jugular??? You must be kidding me?

What are you 4-10. You got the ball on the 1 foot line fourth down with a chance to put it away in regulation? Gutless football!!!!! Everybody and their brothers coulda called this play. Only thing to gain was a win. PATHETIC play calling.

Yeah, Wayne's act probably seems pretty tired ... but then again, who would know about tired acts better than YOU?

Bricker, I'll have to disagree w/ you on some of the grades. Passing offense was not that good until the last catch of the game. There was rarely a 3rd and short. A lot of passes were checkdowns to Lorenzo, and his speed got the yards. There wasn't a deep pass all game. The redzone offense (passing) was horrible. fade's to a defensive end from 15 yards out?..come on. That playcall brings us to coaching. Again, Cam seems to make everyone nervous when crucial yards are needed. I think Cam got lucky w/ that 4th and 1 with the option to Lorenzo. Good thing he is quick! But then again, maybe that's why they went w/ it. I give passing and coaching a D-.

I give the overall an A, because.....well, they won!
Go Phins!

How do you give an A for coaching....

When they keep pooching kicks out of bounds and their offense still can not do much. You should be reminded that this team was turn into a Divison 2 college team by this coach and that he kept players like Lorenzo Booker out most of the season.

And let us not forget that if the Ravens had kick that field goal or if they had kept on driving the ball for the win they would have comeback and taken the last drop of blood out of Miami. The Ravens were playing without McAllister, Samari Rolle and Ray Lewis also went out fo rmuch of the second half and played with a 3rd string QB and had the game won.

I do not see any reason to be elated other than it was another day where it was clear for me that this coach has to go.

OH, BY THE WAY, the San Diego Chargers who were supposed to fall apart without the input from the genius offensive brain of Cameron just killed the Lions yesterday and are once again the champions of the AFC West and that in spite of having Norv Turner as coach, a guy that has failed in many different places and will surely be out of San Diego by now if he did not have all that talent in that team.

Don't forget about the 40+ yard long pass into the end zone to Ginn where the DB plowed into him before the ball got there!

22 minutes of ball control in the 2nd half, 10 points to show for it. C-

I wonder why that is?
It must be all my fault given that the Dolphins under this man who was hired to be the top man has made it so enjoyable this year. You know what I liked best was the Marty Booker 4th down play in London where he was asked to take a pitch and rush into the line. Now Marty falls all by himself most of the time.
Then I also enjoyed the holding back of young players as if Cameron was a Pat Reilly twin. But I also enjoyed the outstanding humiliation of Culpepper and the tremendous job that Trent Green and joey Porter did. And how well the new kicker with his strength has been utilized in kickoffs. And I thought it was brilliant to roll John Beck out in 3 out of 4 bad weather cities in late November-December period and against teams that had better defenses than most others. And the idea of having a dink donk offense with no dink donk receivers (Welker could have been), IT IS ENDLESS. THE JOY OF FOOTBALL. May I suggest to you that soccer is more enjoyable now than Miami Dolphin football.

Thats terrible for you! I don't relate to that, but hey, if that's where you are at, then I guess that is just the way it is.
Like I said, I don't relate to that at all. I may not like losing, or may not agree with what is going on on the field, but I'm a fan, and I'll support them no matter what. It doesn't make one way better than another, its just the way it is.

We are in the top third of the league in Cap space usage.

2/3 of the leagues owner/GMs used less cap space than the dolphins.

2/3 of the leagues owners must be planning to "sell the team behind (our) backs".

Superspammer, after a season's worth of spamming work, you still can't get anyone to sign your dumbazz petition can you?

Joey has improved for like 6 straight weeks. What argument are you going to invent next?

Because armchair coaches who think they can playcall better then NFL headcoaches are dufuses! The ones who do this even after a win are the dumbest of those dufuses.
