DOLFAN SATISFACTION METER: GAME 10: Results are certified in the latest Dolfan Satisfaction  Meter, and they show 58.5 percent overall satisfaction in the wake of Sunday's 35-8 home win over the Buffalo 1aa1dsmBills, a division result putting Miami's season record at 3-7. Amazing what a three-game win streak can do. The reading is a season high.

The DSM, in its fourth season, is a continuous gauge of how fans feel about the team and its 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. I also suggest your vote be based on this season only, and not how it might affect the 2012 draft.

The poll never closes but results are certified official after one full day of voting. In this case that was around 9 a.m. today/Tuesday.
