This is a moderated phorum for the CIVILIZED discussion of the Miami Dolphins. In this phorum, there are rules and moderators to make sure you abide by the rules. The moderators for this phorum are JC and Colonel.
I usually know well ahead of time what team the Dolphins will play but today, for the life of me, could not remember what team the Dolphins would be playing this coming Sunday. Ah, I thought, the Texans and then realized they have the same horrific record that we have: 1-7. "Holy crap Marie." Will these teams both bumble through 4 quarters trying to outdo one another in the mistake lottery? Maybe...the way it's going.
With the trade deadline in our wake, with no trades of any kind, what is left is a mass of emotional baggage for coaches, players and us--the fans. The drama with the Dolphins is outrageous. Comments by Grier--we are just doing our due diligence is to quote Col Potter--"horse hockey." Yeah, right...I have a bridge to sell...interested?
These Dolphin executives and coaching staff are bumblers and the team reflects that behavior when they play.
When will we ever be able to praise the Dolphins for selecting the right player, developing a winning attitude and executing plays each week to win 10-12 games a season? The drought persists this season and it's becoming more of an interest to watch for the miscues during the game than the great stupendous plays we so badly need.

We're not going to be able to praise this team until there's better management. And it starts at the top with Chris Grier. And this BS of the Dolphins hiring HC's with no credible experience at it as well as rookie assistants being shuffled around to work with players in areas that they are clueless about and unable to teach ANYTHING at all needs to STOP.
Watched the Jets and Colts game last evening and have empathy for Jets fans. They are under trained and coached like our Dolphins. Then compare these two teams to the Lions who have yet to win a game. These three times are clearly bottom of the barrel.
Aside from terrible records, they do have a lot more in common. Dan Campbell (Lions HC) was a member of the Dolphins coaching staff and was briefly interim HC. I liked his style; but the front office didn't. He has a defense background.
Robert Saleh (Jets) is a first time HC with years involved as an assistant coach working Defense.
Brian Flores (our HC) comes from a Defensive background too. He has the most HC experience and being with the Patriots has several SB rings. He is the most experienced, perhaps the luckiest to have been with the winning ways of the Patriots for so many years.
None of these 3 teams have a sturdy defense; they are also lacking on putting points on the board.
The Jets have rookie QB Zach Wilson, White and Flacco. Wilson has thrown 4 TDs with 9 INTs in 6 games. He did not play against the Colts, White did. The Jets are "rebuilding."
The Lions, winless, have Jared Goff as their QB. He has experience with the Rams. Goff is struggling with 8 TDs and 6 INTs.
Tua, with 1 win, is struggling with 7 TDs and 5 INTs in 5 games. Our offense compares to Jets and Lions. Nothing much to praise on offense or defense.
They all need lots of work to make them average and lots more talent to make them competitive.
The fans for all three teams are miserable. Something else in common.
I will hold back my thoughts on the Texans until after they play the Dolphins this coming Sunday afternoon.
