Dolfan Satisfaction Meter: 17.3%

[1) It is MONDAY, NOVEMBER 12. Find our main Dolphins-Titans game post below in the blog. 2) Visit our video channel at YouTube/TheGregCote (on hiatus; new vids coming soon) and join us on Twitter @gregcote]

DOLFAN SATISFACTION METER: G9: Results are in on the latest Dolfan Satisfaction Meter, and they show 17.3 percent overall satisfaction (nearly equalling a season low) in the wake of Sunday afternoon's 37-3 loss vs. the Tennessee Titans putting Miami's 1aa1dsmseason record at 4-5. The DSM, in its fifth year, is continuous weekly gauge of how fans are feeling about the Dolphins and their direction. Right after each game I invite you to share your overall degree of satisfaction. Criteria for voting is your own, but I suggest fans consider the most recent game's performance and caliber of opponent, the season as a whole, the direction the club is heading and your overall degree of optimism -- all in the context of reasonable expectations. Polls never close (you may still vote), but results are certified official the morning after one full day of voting. In this case that was (tardily) around 10:30 a.m. today/Tuesday.
