Yeah those two overtime losses really grind my gears. Could you imagine being 8-6 right now with a game against Buffalo coming up? Oh well, as the saying goes, you are what you are.

I thought we were past this silliness. Losing to Indy, Buffalo, and Tennessee should have snapped the dreamers back into reality. Somehow it didn't.

I'm looking forward to the draft. We need playmakers. Pass rushers and WRs to make this team more competitive. We need O-lineman as always. And we need a ballhawk in the secondary. Those ingredients will make us a 10 to 12 win team.

Whats unrealistic about wanting to beat Buffalo at home and hope that Pittsburgh beats Cinncy? No one actually believes we can clear the Week 17 hurdles but we want to see the team actually play a meaningful Week 17 game. The Week 16 challenges are actually quite reasonable.

It's not the desire for us to do well, I share that with everyone else. Whenever the Phins are on tv, I'm cheering for them to win every single time. That's expected and it's fine.

It's the absurd desire to see all the other stars line up so that we, as a .500 team, can go to the playoffs and have our arses handed to us by a really good team. I don't want to see another 65-7 drubbing. I don't want to see Tannehill with 175 yards, 0 TDs, and 3 INTs. I don't want to see our defense get torched by NE, Denver, or Houston. We don't deserve the playoffs, that much is obvious to me. I want us to finish strong and focus on the off season so we can add some playmakers that we desperately need.

The offseason will come whether we make the playoffs or not.

No duh.

I'd rather have an off season where we didn't get destroyed in a hopeless playoff game. This fixation about making the playoffs is silly, we don't have the players to compete with any of the other playoff teams.

Two well played games....let the players go into the offseason with confidence....let them get close, but just miss the playoffs....A team hungry for success can be very dangerous....

Its more fun to be involved then not involved at all. I have fun watching the playoffs and the longer the Dolphins are included the more I enjoy it.

Give it your best shot. So what if it hurts the draft position, the draft is pretty bad this season. It is historically awful at the top anyway. More wins=more attractive to FA and to fans. Fan buzz=good.

So you enjoyed Marino's last game because it was a playoff game?

I didn't particularly enjoy our loss to the Ravens in 2008 either.

I enjoyed the fact that during the week before the playoffs I still had a fins game to look forward to. 31 teams are going to get knocked off eventually, no use in not wanting games because youre so sure we're going to lose.

Dolphins making the playoffs? Sure! Its about the same probability as every poster here dating a Miami Dolphin cheerleader.


Dibs on Samantha.

It would be pretty hilarious for us to make the playoffs and beat someone. I would have loved it if the Pats were the #1 seed and we made it in as the 6th.

This. Every teams goal is to make the playoffs. At this point, even though the dolphins chances are slim, the fact that some people don't really care if we make it, and actually want us not to, shocks me.
