I wish there was a rule in the NFL where you have to have been born in the state where your team is located ... imagine the Dolphins , Bucs and Jags would be great and the Pats , Jets and Bears would suck . In fact teams from Florida , California , Texas and Ohio would rule !!

Just wishful dreamin !!!!
Two of the Bucs' best players (Mike Alstott and Simeon Rice) are from IL, so Id watch your comments.

As long as Chris Chambers is a Dolphin, I'll have reason to root for them. Go Badgers!

It's been very difficult to see what has happened to the team, especially since Marino retired. A position that was never an issue for 17 years has become one of unending frustration. Even when he was there, the management never did what they needed to get them the championship. Contrast that with the Colts. They know what they have in Manning and do whatever is necessary for him to be as successful as possible and it paid off last year.

Who knows how long it will be before they turn things around. The last several years have seen multiple bad draft picks, questionable free agent signings and trades, horrible quarterbacks, incompetent coaching and on and on. Next year will be another high draft pick; I can only hope they will be a little wiser with it.

I could rant for a long time regarding all of their problems, but I'll just mention a few that have bothered me. One of my biggest complaints is that they constantly waste draft picks in trades for players that never work out.

1) Ricky Williams - cost them several draft picks including #1; he plays 2 years and abandons the team
2) Daunte Culpepper - another draft pick for a quarterback needing a walker; they could have had Drew Brees for no draft picks, who coincidently is named to the pro bowl and leads his team to the NFC title game
3) AJ Feely - Philly gets a #2 pick and gives them a quarterback who did nothing but throw interceptions and kill every chance they had
4) Was it wise to pass up on Brady Quinn and go for John Beck?

Trent Green has not exactly been stellar. Jay Fiedler could only take you so far. Ray Lucas was horrible. When will Ronnie Brown get going? What happened to all those high draft picks the last few years, are they starting? Why trade Welker to a division rival so they could improve even more?

Their decision making does not exactly model the Patriots, which may explain why the Patriots keep winning and the Dolphins keep losing. Something has to change in Miami.
Boy, you echo my thoughts COMPLETELY. It's almost as if there was a curse on this team after Shula left. Every possible inept move by the front office and coaching staff has been carried through to the extreme. I'll always root for my Dolphins though. They'll get it together again someday. Hopefully before I grow old and go to the great beyond, however.

I feel for Chris Chambers. That guy could have gone to the pro-bowl every year if he'd had a decent quarterback throwing to him all of these years. The guy is a phenomenal athlete, and although he does drop a few balls, I think it's mainly because he's trying to do to much with the limited opportunities he has. The guy is all legs!

The song that says "let her cry" is entitled "Let Her Cry." The song that says "the Dolphins make me cry" is called "I Only Wanna Be With You." In the video it shows the lead singer playing catch with Dan Marino at one point.. Just an interesting little anecdote there.

BTW, I'm a Dolphin fan, but Bears fans are the greatest. I visit the Bears football forum and there is one guy on there that writes the funniest little limricks I've read in my entire life. After the Dolphins beat the Bears last year (was it last year?). He bellied up and wrote a little poem about the Dolphins (because he lost the bet) that was one of the funniest things I've ever read in my life. It was pure greatness. Since then, I've become a Bears fan as well, which works out really well because they don't play in the same conference.

Bears fans are tops in my book.
