      Max boxing takes but you’re dead wrong about the Dolphins as just about every media personality as well. Case in point on the Tunsil-Stills deal to Houston. You’re talking optics when we the fans see & hear the reality. Max, when Laremy Tunsil heard what the Texans were giving up for them he said, and I quote, “You gotta make that deal!” What we the fans are tired of is a subpar roster we hope can overachieve and make a wildcard push! Enough of this! We’d rather endure the pain early this season & begin building for sustainability for the near future. To show you I’m not some delusional fan who doesn’t know what’s happening I’m going to give you three scenarios that will happen to this team to show progress: 1) CB Jalen Ramsey will be dealt to the Phins for a 1st rounder & a 4th rounder; 2) QB Josh Rosen will become the franchise QB after Week 8; and 3) they will pick up T Trent Williams from the Deadskins

              The players should all quit. Give up the money to save themselves the shame and physical beating. If Brian Flores had any integrity as a coach he wouldve refused to have been any part of this mess. Every executive of that team should quit and never show their faces again. Even the lions and browns were trying to win and managed to show some form of competetiveness. Every ticket buying fan and season ticket holder should sue for a refund on their money. The dolphins are a sick joke and a mockery of professionalism.

                So what if the Dolphins are building up picks in the draft look at there history of players taken there either no longer in the league or playing on another team and all those high draft picks if they work out will want to get payed in a salary cap era....

                      They are tanking but ESPN etc doesn't want to say they ARE because it'll make the NFL and the product look bad. Viewers, fans etc know they are but it hasn't been spoken from the horses' mouth to be 100% truth. Also, GIVE THE PATRIOTS THEIR SUPERBOWL RINGS, NOW!

                                    Max must have a crystal ball. It's week one dude. Brady still hadn't walked off that cliff yet like he predicted. At least the organization has stopped the free agent band aid approach that had resulted in years of floundering. The nights always darkest before dawn.

                                                  Of course they are tanking. But tanking doesn't require you tell every individual player to tank. If you do that, then someone would whistleblow. It wouldn't hurt to come to an understanding with a few of the players, who can then fumble at the worst possible moment, draw penalties, etc. And a few of the coaches. But really, they can just remove the veteran players, proclaim they are building for the future, work on fundamentals instead of game planning, etc.

                                                    They are tanking, not the players but management, give the team what they need to be totally pathetic.

                                                      If these dolphins players made it this far in their football career....I think they can all can be successful if they put their heart and mind into it.👍

                                                        Thats just not true that they arent talented the defense is full of high drafted talented players and the offense is everywhere but oline

                                                          The Coachs were bad bad bad but not tanking

                                                          wasnt the coachs fault that MCCAIN a converter safety bit hard on a run fake leaving no safety help

                                                          or that Fitmagic rolls out and throws a dumb int early to earl thomas or that Jakeem “butterfingers” grant fumbles a fair catch punt inside our 10

                                                          It was floresgrier fault we played a bunch of practice squad guys though that were newly added to the team weeks before

And fantasize about Barry sanders getting traded to Miami and it being a superbowl team. Never happened. Tanenhill was never good. And I dunno why. But miami cant maintain or keep a offensive line. So when tunsil fell i was ecstatic. And we gave him away, repeat gave him away. Stills was drama I'm not concerned there, then our defensive pieces. They bring in not even an off or def coordinator. A linebacker coach from new England. While it makes the Rooney rulers all happy. I think hes over his head and nothing to prove his worth. I mean has he ever called a play? With patriots I doubt it. And when we need offense... offense. We get a linebacker coach. If you wanted that bring in lance Briggs or I forgot name that Miami linebacker zack Taylor I believe it was. Someone with ties to miami atleast please. Instead were trust the process 2.0 . And I'm not convinced it worked for browns or philly in basketball. Say what you want stephen A. If they dont get the hardware it's a bust. If toronto and milwaukee are east mains teams the process needs work. And browns got a great wr the roommate of obj. Serviceable and alot more team friendly. But I did hear the the kicking equipment said yes and obj is planning his marriage. Flash in the pan. Hot for talk. But until they beat Patriots, chiefs, and in their case steelers. It's all hype. Miami was gonna be a cusp team looking at 6 spot. Now it's just sad fans and sad times. And so help me god if we draft tua I'll scream. Theres 3 at least better QBs. Tell me I'm wrong stephen A. Tell me I'm wrong.
