As If We Don't Have Enough Problems Already

What else can go wrong?  Let's see, maybe we could misplace the footballs.

Can the timing be any better? Can we get a handle on things in South Florida already!

Philbin has gotta be pulling his hair out right about now.

Ireland has gotta be wondering if they missed something in vetting Jonathan Martin prior to last years draft.

Ross has gotta be sharpening the axe.

This is turning into quite the soap opera down there.  "All My Linemen" or "As The Roster Turns".

Now it appears to me for a grown man to slam down his lunch tray and storm out of work, he either doesn't like his job or has some emotional issue that truly needs resolving.

Another lineman has some sort of ties to a murder suspect.

You can watch this kind of shit on Bravo!

For heavens sake, aren't we a football team?

Is this some sort of Mischief Night prank?

Tell me there is toilet paper strewn through the palms. Tell me they soaped up the coaches' cars.

I cannot believe this is actually happening.

Well it could be worse.  I just don't know how.

We don't look to smart telling people how good this team would be...

Its just plain old stunning Zaf. Like a 2x4 to the head.

Maybe we'll be shocked tomorrow, we beat them the last two times and we're at home. Maybe Sherman with Shock us and use a tight end in the blocking-passing-running game.

I think he will. We should get that fullback back. My mind is mush right now.

Maybe he wants to win more than all the other losers...0-4 is not the time for fun and pranksterism. Grow up and go win a Friggin game!

I think there is a bit more to it than a single prank. Martin has been reported as sick all week. As I recall Martin was blasted in the preseason early on for not being able to handle Left Tackle. Then the focus of the season has been on how bad the line as been in particular on Clabo and Martin. Then they sign Bryant and Martin is moved to the right side. Which for his professional career is a big hit because right tackles don't get paid like left tackles. So I can understand his frustration. I do hope he is ok and is getting help if he needs that. With that being said I if it is just him tired of the critics then I have lost any respect for him to leave the team like that. I also hope this serves as a wake up call for the team. Obviously this is a concern, but even more concerning is Phillbin yelling at an assistant in front of the team at practice. There is still time to right this ship and I feel the team has the talent they need to win the next several games. But Suddenly I feel like Miami has become a circus like the Jets.

Well said Gofins4sb, well said indeed.

Movie Quote For Martin and the Rest of The Fins

"Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard ya hit. It's about how hard you can get it and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done! Now if you know what you're worth then go out and get what you're worth. But ya gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain't where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody! Cowards do that and that ain't you! You're better than that! "

Wow, great advice. You got me on this one. What movie is this from?

I think Sherman is one of those coaches that can't make the transition to NFL at this point in his career. It baffles me why he can't move the pocket consistently and why our defense gives up 3rd and long repeatedly. We're not closers. Ryan is better for sure. Think they should use Thigpen more but let's be real. If the OL isn't good enough the play calling is not the issue. Think we need 2 nasty ass OT's and OG's to compliment Incognito and Pouncey. Also need to put start Dion Jordan and get some dam sacks. The kid is going to be a great one if we let him play

I agree Jeff. Next year's draft is loaded with OL.
Jordan's ankle may be the reason he hasn't been out there as much. I would love to see him play more.
