Do fans owe their support to teams?

Plenty of NFL tight ends would be happy to switch places with San Francisco's Vernon Davis this season. The 49ers are 6-2 with a two-game lead in the NFC West and look to be in position to make another run deep into the playoffs or beyond.
But this isn't...

Maybe Dolphins owner Steve Ross should tell everybody in his organization they are being "closely evaluated."

Three Things to consider on this sports Wednesday:
Thing 1: So Texans defensive end J.J. Watt says he got the Miami Dolphins snap count from "Hard Knocks."

We have nine days to debate if the Bears offense can be as bad as Thursday night's debacle in Green Bay would lead one to believe.

Miami Dolphins rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill didn't have any problems aiming his passes downfield on Sunday against the Raiders.

Sack-happy defensive end J.J. Watt went out for a pass as a wide receiver, retiring center Jeff Saturday snapped to two Mannings on opposite teams and the NFC blew past the AFC 62-35 in a Pro Bowl that could be the league's last.
