Now what?

2011 is going to be a most interesting year for the phins.  And I'm going to be right here.  MAKING FUN OF IT!!!

Enough with the "we'll get better soon" or whatever nonsense we'll be hearing, and have been hearing for the last decade.

This team is a joke.  We've become the Detroit Lions.  I think the game a few weeks ago where they beat us was the official handoff ceremony - they get to go on the uptick, and we start the downward spiral.

Tony Sparano is now a one-year coach assuming he stays around at all.  Who is going to come here and coach with him given that?  That's right.  No one.  It seems unlikely that he'll land any replacements for OC, or special teams, or anything else for that matter.

And if and when free agency resumes, who will want to come here as a player?  After a bunch of guys bad mouthed the coach, and the coach may not be here?

A lockout is bad news as well: the players are banned from the team facility.  No working out.  No going over game concepts or film.  No installing offenses.  No meetings with coaches. Then when we resume (late summer?  early fall?), we'll still have mostly the same players.  Chad Henne, Ricky, Ronnie, and so on.  Because they won't be able to go anywhere...

And that means when they do take the field, we'll be seeing the same nonsense we saw this season - only worse.  Other teams will have figured us out, and there is bound to be some major dissension in the locker room.  However many games there are, I predict we win no more than 2.

I said it last offseason, they needed to load up to win in 2010.  And now I look like a sage one.  

And the distance grows greater and greater between us and the rest of ... I was gonna just list the Jets and Patriots.... but its the Bills too.  And the rest of the NFL.
