Vince Young hasn't matured as a man. He was terrific at the college level but hasn't been able to overcome the complexities of NFL defenses, and cope with the higher level of NFL play. While he is the athlete, unless he sees the light at the end of the tunnel pretty soon, mentally, he'll be just another QB flop, heading for the unemployment line. I don't think he'll be sporting a Titans uniform

Okay--thanks for the information. Too bad Satele didn't pan out for us. He's snapping for the Raiders.

Watching Welker yesterday afternoon, I couldn't recall who we selected for the slots we got from NE. We got a 2nd and 7th Rd pick in the draft. What players were selected with those picks? Anyone remember? Thanks.

Victor-- It's not magical. Setting goals for some is hard, getting there more difficult--neither requires magic. Magical connotes a fantasy solution. Making those changes, getting those positions filled requires full creative effort. It may take cash ($), trading and cash, giving up a draft pick, trading a player, cash, etc. No wizardry involved. The first thing, IMO, is determine the

The Dolphins could be a playoff team next year, and with the right mix of players could win the division in two years and play in a SB in 3. Nothing magical about what needs to be done--acquire the right players. Our goal would be to... 1. trade Vernon Carey--too slow--for a more athletic veteran RT 2. secure a top 5 Center, if possible, a veteran who has years left 3. trade Ronnie Brown

Planning to lose goes against the grain of all competitors, against the grain of one's inner self. If anyone on the Dolphins is resigned to lose, they need to quit the team, the coaching staff or the front office, and go find a nice place in namby-pamby land to curl up and suck their thumb.

Marshall would never have acted out if Shula was his HC. Marshall would be taking splinters out of his butt from sitting on bench. I agree--Sparano is not in control of his players.

Congratulations to the Bears winning their 700th football game in our stadium with a shut out--the first in 40 years for us. Okay, now that that's out of my system--the Fins are a train wreck. With injuries everywhere, my optimism for a win was unrealistic. My hope for Thigpen performing behind a makeshift front O-line was unrealistic too. He never got a chance to settle in. It just didn'

I always proof read my posts--really missed the "way" for "wait." I am typing it correctly 10 times on the computer just for being so damn inept.

If Thigpen does well against the Bears (and we win) it will be more difficult for the front office to replace him after Chad Henne recovers from his injury. However, given the fact he came at a real expense, they will replace Thigpen still thinking he is the Dolphin's future at QB. A mobile QB adds so much more to the team's offense today especially if he can throw the ball too. I compare

I like the way he is able to move about and his throwing arm reminds me of Fran Tarkenton.

Boy, yesterday was one of those days. I'm really sorry that so many players suffered injuries. Pennington's injury may sideline him forever. The injuries to others may not be as damaging. One could say it affords some players the opportunity to step in and step up their game. Perhaps, this may be the case. Thigpen who came off the bench did a very credible job.

If, and I say IF, Sparano and others believe that play calling is poor, Sparano as head coach must communicate that it is poor to Henning. Henning then has the choice of opening up play or sticking to his approach. When it is resulted oriented, and I believe it is, and the conservative play calling is not working and Henning is not capable of making things happen, he must be relieved of his job

I am rooting for Pennington Sunday. What I expect to see is leadership. What I expect to see are plays that are not "catch and crumble" but catches on the run that make yardage. I also expect to see Pennington changing plays at the line of scrimmage when he reads the D. He will improvise when necessary and look to Fasano, Bess, Ricky, and Marshall to make plays when Pennington moves

I'm not going to throw Henne under the bus quite yet although I've complained about him lacking finesse and leadership skills. I draw from my own experiences and offer this as the reason why Pennington is stepping in to lead the team. 1. When a less experienced person runs into difficulty it's often time to bring in a mentor to show that person how things are done. In this case, it is an

You know, most of us are pointing out problems which have not been satisfactorily resolved. Each has there own perspective of what is misfiring. Honestly, misfires are everywhere. I have been down on Chad Henne because his progress has stalled. He doesn't exude the poise I'd like to see from a QB. He doesn't display the take charge leadership, I'd like to see. His ability to time passes wi

Execution and consistent execution on plays makes good things happen. A great throw is only great when it results in something positive. If Henne actually leads his intended receiver and the receiver doesn't execute (catch it) that's a missed opportunity for a play. Both have to be dialed in to make it happen. It takes "two to tango" as they say. Very discouraging team play.

The team was seriously out played today. Special Teams on the Ravens kept the Dolphins pinned back. How many times did the kicker put it in the end zone? Three times, maybe four? Rice, was an elusive RB and receiver. He had a great game and couldn't stop him. Our defense never got on track. What could have been a momentum changer would have been Smith's interception of Flacco's pass. O

A&O--granted Marshall didn't catch it. But where is the ball so that the receiver can catch it while he's running. The ball should meet the player in stride. Henne throws to much at a target. Like a pitcher throwing a high inside pitch to the catcher's glove. Leading the receiver so he can grab it in front of him may allow the receiver to catch and run with it. It also protects the ball

The game is still underway as I write, but the game is over. Henne is not capable of leading his receivers so if they catch the ball they can run with it. Brandon Marshall's expression on the sideline I've seen before. He was upset with Henne's poor pass to him that resulted in Reid's interception and TD. Not wanting to pile on, but Henne is not the answer at QB.

The short pass to Fasano wobbled from the get-go; no one touched it after it left Henne's hand. Henne remains pain-stricken around / inside the 20.

No touch inside the 20. Henne still appears panicky. His throw to Bess was off. He could have thrown it more at the flag allowing Bess to catch it and score. That's my thoughts.

Montequi--I agree wholeheartedly. If a DB can't make the catch make sure nobody else can do it either--swat it to the ground. I sense DBs get a bad rap about not catching balls because they don't! They are so focused on not getting beaten by the wR they are covering, the thought about catching the ball when it's on the way is all but a momentary thought. The better DBs not only cover, they b
