Dolphin fan since high school days

 Jay Cutler is not the answer but he is capable making plays.  just how consistently can he do this though?

Phin Phan here too.  They were clicking last night.  With less than 3 minutes left the Pats were 0-10 on 3rd down conversions.   In their history you think that's ever happened before?

Not in a long time.

Sad thing is, Miami is not making the playoffs. When I was growing up in the 70s and 80s, they seemed to always be in the playoffs.

Nice victory though.

My Phin phandom dates to Griese, Csonka, Buoniconti etal.  #1 Garo Yopremian.   Those were the days.

Cutler is terrible.  I guess you can blame me for him.  I used to work with a Bears fan.  I'd crack jokes about Cutler on a daily basis.  Now he texts me since he signed with the Dolphins.

Our son lives & works downtown Chicago.   He's a Bears fan  and a Phins phan.   He wanted him gone from Chicago.  I said you got your wish.  He said, yeah, right.

Csonka is my favorite although I only saw him on NFL films.  I also like Marino.

Cuter is a poor man's Brett Favre. He extends plays, has a rifle for an arm, and one of the few remaining gunslingers. Both Cutler and Favre could single handedly win you a game or lose you a game and lacked the consistency you'd want. The difference b/w the two is that Favre would do just enough to make you question benching him, but then he'd do something else that wiped any doubt away that he was your long term starter. Cutler does just enough to make you question whether he's turned a corner and could be your long term starter, but then he'll do something that makes you realize that answer is no.

And a side note on the phins.....they're not out of the playoff picture yet.  In a normal year 10'W's would be the threshold for getting a wildcard spot in the playoffs but the Phins could conceivably do it with 9 'W's this  year.  Even 8 isn't impossible.  Not likely, but not impossible.

This about sums it all.

Bears fan here and it was a roller coaster ride with him for 8 years.

Haven't been keeping up with the NFL this year, but was looking at the box score of the Miami game and saw AJ Derby caught a pass.  I thought he was still at Denver, but it's good to see him still playing.
