  • Don't Care Any More???

    I don't know if it's the many years of frustration, the horrible lack of effort in the first four games or, knowing that we are going to be starting over to at least some degree but, I have not had the obsession I did for the past two weeks. I thought it may have just been the bye but, the win last week did nothing for me.

    I don't care who may be coaching next year, what Tannehill said to a player, what anyone thinks about Campbell or players, including Dallas, etc.

    At this point, for me, it just doesn't seem to matter much.

    Anyone else?

    Good way to shield yourself from disappointments! Unfortunately I don't have a life and my kids have better things to do then hang out with Dad. I'll take the baton but I won't research like you Sobe!

      I was reaching that point after the Bills game. Firing Philbin and Coyles rejuvenated my zest for the team, then Dan came in and so far, I've loved everything he has said and done. He's the anti-Philbin and working on turning this season around.

      We went 1-3 under Philbin in the 1st qtr of the season. Ridiculous and good riddance.

      This quarter we're 1-0 under Dan Campbell. No way we'll be as bad in our ''new'' home opener as we were for Philbin's home opener.

      If we beat the Texans this Sunday, I'm ''All In'' on Dan.

      C'mon Joe, watch some tape of Billy Turner blowing up guys on Landry and Miller's touchdown runs or Suh and Wake destroying the Titans OL. That'll get your aqua blood to pumping again. ;-)

          We stand an EXCELLENT chance of being 4-4 after the Buffalo game, which would be a great sign for the future. It starts Sunday, and if we continue to improve this week, I will watch a week from tonight with a RENEWED passion!

              This Sunday will tell a lot. If this team plays like last week then I will be 100% convinced that things have changed with the Dolphins. And no way will I give up on a team that refuses to quit and plays their heart out. That being said the team that played the first four games I was done with and will be done with them again if they show back up. But I don't think Campbell will let that happen.

              Pretty much my feelings as well. If they would have stayed with Philbin and Coyle I was ready to DVR games and watch when I could as opposed to watching them live. DanTalica and the new attitude has me pumped right now. I am sure it will settle some after the first loss, but I am loving everything he is doing right now and loved this brand of football. I am not a fan of arena league football, maybe I am just old but I love the punch you on the mouth and keep trucking over top of you.

              Football is a physical sport and it's about imposing your will on another man...this takes me back to the days when I played and I was a trench guy so probably why I love the smash mouth stuff.

                I know for a fact that i'm not the same Fins fan i was growing up. Though they'll always be my team through thick & thin i've become super-jaded and almost indifferent to them as i've almost come to believe that i care more about winning than they do..I actually believe that had we not finally made the change & fired Philbin & Coyle, i would've looked for something better to occupy my time on Sunday's, this coming from a guy who would've in the past, thought it unthinkable to miss a single minute of Fins football!

                    I can relate Sobe. I am excited that maybe Campbell has ignited a spark and potentially this team is turning things around, but to be perfectly honest I'm worn down as well. The rollercoaster this team has put me on definitely had created a bit a apathy in terms of excitement and hope. It's easier to deal with the disappointment if I keep my expectations in check. Don't get me wrong I will be as excited as everyone else if we turn this season around, but I'm trying really hard to reduce the level of disappointment us long time fans can't help but think is lurking around the corner every Sunday.

                      We all go through it. I was already starting to put together my draft board for next year. I put the brakes on for now. Let's hope it continues. Teddy Bruschi said today that he doesn't trust this team to continue to play with this kind of energy because the coach isn't the reason they came out on Sunday the way they did. They just knew their jobs were on the line for the week so they decided to give the effort. I couldn't disagree more. Campbell has the fire to get everything out of each player. Plus, they finally quit outsmarting themselves with stupidity. The defense is attacking. That is our only hope. We lack the MLB, a CB and a Safety to play a flow style defense. If we're going to make mistakes, let's do it at full speed, not standing on our heels. On offense, we're attacking. How could we ever expect to be successful running a five man blocking scheme where all of our linemen start their attack by running laterally down the LOS when defenses are coming straight ahead full speed with six and seven men? The running game mixed with legitimate play action already showed me more than I could have ever expected. That is what has changed. That is why the attitude has changed. Do you really want to stay in a fight if your opponent is allowed to kick, punch and knee but you're only allowed to slap back? I have to admit Tannehill looked a lot better when defensive linemen and blitzers didn't know exactly where he was going to be on every play. Obviously, he's the key. I think if the players bring the energy they brought last week and Lazor stays totally unpredictable on offense, we're going to handle the Texans, which sets up real nicely for the return of Jay Ajayi and the Thursday night matchup with the Pats. Something tells me your juices are going to start flowing. I don't think you can control that. It's just a part of who you are SoBe. It's in your DNA now.

                        And Bruschi is a douche anyway. He and Heath Evans hate Miami so we shouldn't care what they say.

                      I've been hearing the talking heads stating that this isn't going to last too. I heard someone say last week that the reason why they played with so much intensity was because the players wanted to really prove that THEY were not the problem and it was the coaches. They went out and played with fire because they wanted people to blame Philbin and Coyle for their poor play and by playing hard last Sunday and getting the win tricked people into believing that the blame should be put on the coaches and not the players.

                      I don't believe that for a second. I do blame the players a little bit, because they do get paid well to play their best and I don't think many of these guys did. It looked like they just gave up out there in previous weeks and no matter who your coach is, if you are getting paid that much money you should at least try your hardest on every play for yourself, your family and the fans. I don't think many of the players did that in the first games of the season. I blame the coaching staff for most of this teams problems and hopefully this team can be turned around. I can't wait until Sunday to see if they can play with the same intensity and fire they did last week, for nothing else but to shut some mouths around the league. I am really looking forward to that Patriots games especially if the Dolphins can pull off a victory this week and the Jets upset them as well.

                        Guys, I'm not saying that I'm quitting on being a Phan, just that it does not matter as it has for many a year. After the first 3 bad games, I still had high hopes for the home opener turning things around. Friends and I paid a bunch for great seats, and our pre-game started on Fri. I've been to well over 100 Phins and Canes games, and was never as disgusted as that piss poor performance by our players.

                        I was thinking that if players don't care without someone to "inspire" them, why should Phans care. I thought I would get over this with the bye but, did not happen, and I was kinda numb watching the Titans game. Maybe the fire comes back, maybe not.

                          You're absolutely right Sober, why should the Phans care if the players don't...The last 4 games,(not including the Titans) these players didn't give any effort and acted as if it was just another day at the office,, As for Mr.Magoo, he should be very worried about the fans because if we don't care who's going to show up to the games? Who's going to buy all this merchandise? I think it's a great Idea if nobody spends money on this pathetic side show of a team so Ross will sell it.. I truly hope we kick ass the next few weeks just because I want glory for my team again.. But I sure in hell won't be holding breath; and I sure in the hell won't be spending my money on Mr.Magoo...Tru Dat!
