Stephen Ross hopes his Dolphins are hoisting Lombardi Trophy in a “very short time”

Miami Dolphins Introduce Brian Flores

The Miami metropolitan area has hosted eight Super Bowls since the Dolphins won their last one. The team’s last championship was so long ago that current Dolphins coach Brian Flores — who is 40 years old — wasn’t born for another seven years after it.

Dolphins owner Stephen Ross, though, made mention of winning a Super Bowl “soon” several times Tuesday as the team opened its new training facility.

“We want to do as much with the community as we possibly can; we want to be the best in class in the NFL; and we want to win the Super Bowl,” Ross said, via Adam Beasley of profootballnetwork.com. “Well, I think we are two-thirds of the way there, and the rest, I hope we are hoisting the Super Bowl [trophy] in a very short time, with the emphasis on short.

“It takes all these small details when putting together a great organization, that will be used to winning and winning often.”

The Dolphins fell short of the postseason by losing in Week 17 of the 2020 season. They have not made the postseason since 2016 and have not won a playoff game since 2000.

  1. Small details like blowing up everything every few years an mistakes like hiring a failed coach form a very bad Jets team that brings having to create a new roster. Flores I think can do it, but like other longtime losing teams (cough, cough Dallas) teams with meddling owners usually screw it up by trying to make player decisions just before the team can turn the corner.

  2. Tua will never lead a team to the Super Bowl. Natural right handed passer forced to be a lefty..Take it to the bank as I hope Tua did with his contract. Huge bust imo.

  3. Him selling the team to a competent ownership group would be a great start!

  4. They need to get a QB first. Tua isn’t going to take them anywhere. Tua just isn’t as dynamic or as good of a QB as his peers are such as Kyler Murray, Justin Herbert, Justin Fields, Joe Burrow etc. Of all the newer QB’s in the league age 25 yrs and under Tua would be the last guy I’d take. He’s near or at the bottom of that list for sure.

  5. lol!

    This loser dope has been saying this for 10 years and thinks spending wildly without drafting very well and building a middle roster, is somehow the way to go.

  6. Tua not only beat but outplayed both Herbert and Murray head to head last season. Just sayin

  7. Shocking. Positively shocking. So a billionaire is hopeful his toy wins the next competition as he does hope his toy will make him happy as every other toy he has does. If they don’t? Out of the rib with a clatter! A rich guy expects to win, wake me when the unexpected happens..

    Tua never played Herbert or Murray. Neither of them was on the DL, rushed from the LB position, or defended a single pass. So if you are saying his stats were better against a couple of middling teams than them playing a middling team? Who cares? Tua is not a very good NFL QB and I would stake my money on Herbert any day. Murray not so much.

  9. When you hire and fire coaches one year into the job and you constantly spend big money in free agency and those big name free agents don’t pan out along with bad drafting It sets your franchise back years. Today’s NFL owners are impatient and want to win now But they don’t realize the more you start over the further away you are from actually winning. Will the dolphins be a competitive team this year I think so, are they going to win the Super Bowl no way.

  10. Tua had way more obstacles to overcome in his first year than any of the other QB’s his being compared to, mainly due to the hip injury that kept him from playing for most of his last year of college. He was 5-4 as a starter (I’m giving him a loss to the Raiders instead of a win because he was losing that game before he was pulled) and his TD to INT ratio was what you want from a franchise QB. We will see what he can do with a full offseason and a better understanding of the play book, not to mention better receiving group.

    Dont know any of the stats just watched the games. You ever watch a game and see one quarterback doing better than the other? Whether its making plays, awareness, not screwing it up? Thats what I mean by head to head

  12. I expect a fall back to earth this season for the Phins. I’m not sold on Tua, and there is no Fitzmagic to bail out the team this year.

  13. The NFL should bring back the Playoff Bowl and rename it the Stephen Ross Bowl because the Dolphins will never be Super Bowl contenders with Ross or Tua!

  14. I really like what the Dolphins have done the past few years. They’ve amassed draft picks and are building through the draft. They’ve finally got a decent head coach. The people criticizing Tua are being way too hasty. He’s actually looked pretty good at times and has shown he can play at a high level, but like most young starters he’s got to become more consistent.

  15. These jokes kinda write themselves huh. “short time” is not going to happen Sir.

  16. Sorry Tua . They say NY is tough on QB . Well so are the Miami faith full who take nothing at face value. You need to prove your self over and over in order to get a phins fan respect! I also believe that Tua is Ross pick all the way. I still rather have Fitzmagic or Watson even with or with out his legal issues that i think are all BS anyhow!

    Let’s take look at this

    AZ 31 – MIAMI 34

    Tua 20 of 28, 248 yds, 2 TD

    KM – 34/31 283 yd, 3 td.

    LA 21 – AZ 29

    Tua 15 of 25 169 yd, 2 td.

    JH 20 of 32 187 yd, 2 td 1 int.

    So yes , the dolphins did beat AZ and LA when they played. But Murray’s stats were better than Tua’s in that game, and while his stats were better than Herbert’s Herbert had a bit of a bad game.

    Both of them were one score games, no one got blown out.

    Look I’m not saying Tua sucks, it’s too early to make that call, but I’m glad my lions passed him even if Okudah doesn’t work out. I think it’s possible that he ends up being better than Murray but I’m not huge on KM either. But , can you honestly sit here and tell me you would rather have Tua over Herbert to build around? Dude smashed records and won rookie of the year and he certainly passed the eyeball test.

    Anything can happen , but if you had to bet your life on Tua or Herbert being a better QB I think moat people are taking Herbert.

  18. Ya’ll hating on Tua and Dolphins are in store for a world of pain over the next 10 years.

    If your not aware of how well this team is setup and stacked, feel sorry for you.

    Waddle, Fuller and Parker are a lot different than Bowden and Isiah Ford.

  19. Since the Dolphins open the season in New England where there are 6 super bowl trophies , maybe Mr Kraft will let the Dolphins hoist one of them.

    Sorry man….I didn’t see anything from Tua last year to convince me he is anything other than Tyrod Taylor 1.01

  21. Look at Tua and his games against the raiders, broncos, Bengals, and bills (week 17). Only a casual fan would think Tua will succeed in the NFL. Not denying his talent but I am denying his ability to be successful against NFL caliber players. Tua played with 4 first round receivers at Alabama. He will never get that with Miami. Tua constantly goes 3 and out and struggles to get first downs. Tua is an average guy with average strength with an average hip. Tua is not special at doing anything and that will become a glaring problem.

    —————————————————–

    LoL. Murray was FAR BETTER than Tua was in that game. And the only reason Tua did decent in that game is because no one ha tape on that offense yet as it was Tua’s first or second start. Tua completed threw for 248YDs/122 passer rating w/ 2TDs to 0INTs, Kyler Murray on the other hand completed over 80% of his passes in that game for 283YDs passing 3TDs/0INTs w/ a 150.5 QB passer rating and had 11 rushing attempts for another 106YDs rushing w/ 1TD AVG just a hair under 10 YDs per carry. Don’t try to act like Tua out played Murray in that game, and that was also the game where Zane Gonzalez missed yet another chip shot kick costing them another game with his poor kicking. Murray far outplayed Tua across the board in that game.
    Justin Herbert also out played Tua when the two met up in that game though it was closer than the Tua/Murray game.

    Tua is nowhere near the QB talent that both Justin Herbert and Kyler Murray are, which is why in the majority of rankings out there both Murray and Herbert are already ranked as top 10QB’s and no one has Tua ranked anywhere near that high. Chris Simms recent QB rankings rank Kyler Murray as the 7th overall best QB in the NFL, Justin Herbert ranks 11th, Tua ranks in the mid 30’s at 34th overall. That should tell you what the narrative is surrounding Tua nationally and what people in the NFL world think about Tua. The Dolphins front office would redo the 2020 chance in a split second if they could and take Herbert over Tua if they could. I mean I’m just saying.

  23. The fish passing on Herbert is Brees 2.0. Tua isn’t a lefty. Say what you will but this matters. Check out his mechanics, they are off. I would say this will present itself in a big game but the fins won’t smell a big game with Tua. Fourth rounder at best.

  24. The only Quarterback to rank higher in completing tight throws last season than Tua was Aaron Rogers. Tua has the accuracy to be dangerous in the NFL and now he has the receivers. If Miami’s offensive line is just marginally better than last year, he’ll get Miami to the playoffs and be a top ten performer this year.
