It has been 13 years since any team started 0-3 and made the playoffs.  And since 1990, when the NFL expanded its playoff field to 12 teams, only three teams have survived 0-3 to reach the postseason -- the '92 San Diego Chargers (who were 0-4), the '95 Detroit Lions (back in Barry Sanders' heyday), and the '98 Buffalo Bills.

      I don't blame Tony very much because he wasn't supposed to be our Head Coach.  If most of you remember ...Bill Parcells interviewed first REX RYAN but he got scared away by Rex's personality and Parcells is a control freak so he hired TONY SPARANO .....
        Because Ladies and Gentlemen, this looks like a Sad Soap Opera.
      Steve Ross you should not hire people that you don't trust and this is the first rule in any business, so do your job and FIRE THEM.
      I still believe that we can make the  playoff as wild card.  I think you guys will call me crazy but I BELIEVE.

     

     

    All three were wild-card teams and none reached their conference championship games. Of the three, only San Diego won a wild-card game, but then lost in the divisional round.

    I know that most of you are as mad as I.   After watching yesterday's game against the Brown I have more concern now during the 2007 season. This team has zero confidence in winning and that's Sparano's fault.  I know a mid-season change won't do much but we need new blood.  I am with a lot of you... This regime is done. How is possible that every year we miss drafting a TE and a DE.?

    I think DEFENSE wins Championships and even last year's Packers had the best Rushing Linebacker and 2 opportunistic CB and our Walden....released by Miami and a star in Green Bay.

     Our talent evaluation stinks and this is Jeff Ireland's fault, along with Parcell's of course.

     

     

    We wasted a lot of money on players like Wilford, Crocker, Gibril Wilson, Jake Grove, etc etc. and those were done by Parcells - Ireland duo and not Sparano.
