An incredible win, and we all feel good. But…
Jamar Taylor and Damien Williams should not be NFL players. Cut them tomorrow and watch how many teams pick them up on waivers. Zero.
These are guys left around by the Philbin regime, and we’re stuck with them for now. Why? Lack of depth. Philbin’s idea of a balanced roster at the beginning of the season was to have about 35 wide receivers and two running backs.
Philbin put way too much faith in undrafted fumbler Damien Williams and thought of him as a solid backup to Lamar Miller. They should have kept Jay Ajai active. It only takes a few weeks for broken ribs to heal, and then a player can wear a flack jacket to come back sooner. Philbin had so much faith in Damien that the Dolphins put Ajai on mini-IR, and he’s not available until Week 10. A terrible decision. Jonas Gray is still learning the playbook. All this adds up to indicate that we are stuck with Damien Williams as a Miller backup.
Williams fumbled the opening kickoff last week at Tennessee and then fumbled away the shutout today in Miami. He is a poor backfield blocker. He brings nothing to the table. Nothing.
No wonder his college kicked him off the team. No wonder no NFL team drafted him. Except Philbin.
As bad as Williams is, he is an All Pro compared to Jamar Taylor, another player Philbin kept around far too long…and now we’re stuck with him too because of injuries and awful trades.
If some loser bum like Brian Hoyer can pick on Taylor all day long, imagine what Brady will do to him Thursday night? We might score 70 points and still lose, because Taylor is absolutely useless out there. He is such a liability. A nontackling corner who can’t cover anyone. Andrew Franks covers a WR better than Taylor.
Before each play, Taylor is looking all around. He has no idea where he’s supposed to be. Then someone tells him where to go. He gets set. Then 3 seconds later, he’s getting burned. Every week. Every play.
Luckily today, the offense was on fire, and 10/11ths of our D was on fire as well. If only we could get that 11th piece in place, then we could be a real contender inthe AFC East.
