Sorry cat. You may need them Kleenex's yourself.

Tebow is just an inspired player. Hard to not give him credit for his efforts.

Btw, I hate your Fins and am glad they are still in the running for Suck for Luck. Have a nice draft day.

Elmer's better send a big shipment to Miami. I think half the city's faces dropped on the ground after blowing that lead.

Inspired? No, just had a little luck at the end. Let me paint a picture for you though. If you have a good season as a team, you make the playoffs. If you bomb, you get a decent pick and maybe can improve yourself. If you have a mediocre season, you don't make the playoffs and get a crap pick. So if your team isn't going to make it out of the regular season, you might as well lose them all and try to build and try again next year.
I personally knew this would happen to the Fins this year. They lost 2 pretty solid backs and signed a guy who should retire (Bush). At QB you have 2 average at best guys and 1 solid receiver and a few decent guys to throw to. Now if Marino couldn't get a ring with good receivers and a weak running game, then how could Henne?

Well, at least at the moment the Vikings, Colts, and Dolphins are in the running for that top pick. And I don't buy the theory of the clubs effort of "suck for Luck". Miami just doesn't have the overall talent. As Lancet71 pointed out losing those backs put them in a hole. For Miami to lose that game the way it did, well I just don't see Tony Sparano surviving beyond this week, much less the end of the season. I honestly think Sparano could be a quality coach somewhere else, the situation in Miami is just dismal, that's all. From 1970 to 2000 they had one of the best, if not THE best overall won-loss record in the league. And for the last several years they've been sliding.

And if anyone knows how it feels, it's the club that beat them today. Ever since their 2005 AFC Championship loss to Pittsburgh, they've been sliding to the bottom themselves.

Well, I have been proven wrong (happens a lot on this forum). Actually though, it takes a little longer than week 6 of an NFL season for an NFL head coach to get his walking papers, not in all cases though. I still think Tony Sparano could be a good NFL head coach. His situation in the Denver game was different all right, what with the Florida Gators being honored at halftime and all.

Today there was an interesting 5 minute segue on ESPN's Around The Horn. The talk is that CBS commentator and Pittsburgh Steeler head coach Bill Cowher might move out of the studios and venture back to the sidelines as a future NFL head coach. John Gruden's name was mentioned as well. I don't pay much attention to this stuff until season's end, but there could be something to it.

This is a flip side however to the "suck for Luck" sweepstakes. Andrew Luck just might want to stay for that last year at Stanford. There are some pretty good quarterbacks coming out in next years draft as well.

I'm pretty sure through what I've heard that you could add Brian Billick to the conversation as well. He brought the Ravens to relevance (and won a Super Bowl) and is known for his offensive skills which the Dolphins seriously need.

Yep, Billick's name has been mentioned a time or two on the NFL Channel as well!

He's a very intelligent guy, is/has been well liked by players and think he would be a good candidate to turn the franchise around.

Forget about the coach. Try investing in a real QB and a legitimate RB and then the team will start to turn it around. You're not turning it around without players. No coach can do that. Face it, Henne is NOT the answer. He's a decent backup at best.

Ok, so Joe Philbin from the GB Packers is going to be the head coach of the 'Fins, so will Matt Flynn follow him there as he is a free agent this Spring???
