While the season is more than likely over, as New England now has its act together and the Dolphins pursue yet another .500 season thanks to inept Joe Philbin, still we love our Dolphins and root for them do or die.
Next up are the Chicago Bears. And Brandon Marshall. You remember Marshall…one of the best receivers in the league who the Dolphins decided to get rid of because Davone Bess was ready to be our #1 superstar. Brandon Marshall, who the Dolphins got rid of after he was named Pro Bowl MVP. I mean, who would want such a terrible player, right?
Anyway, the bad news is that we have to face Marshall. The good news is that Inconsistent Jay Cutler still helms the Bears, and he’s a very beatable QB. The Bears play as inconsistent as the Dolphins, and they won last week against a terrible Atlanta team, so they are due for a loss.
Also, the Bears already lost to Buffalo. I don’t care about the Bills and their defense…they are an awful team with EJ Manuel and Kyle Orton running their offense. No way on earth should the Bills beat anyone, but they somehow managed to beat both the Dolphins and the Bears. All we’re saying is that if the lowly Bills can win in Chicago, than the Dolphins certainly can.
This is only our 2nd away game (London doesn’t really count as an away game per se, because it was a neutral setting and the Raiders had no home-field advantage). So this will be a test.
The Bears’ rushing game isn’t too impressive. Matt Forte is decent, but he won’t break anything open against us. The passing game can be dangerous, but Cutler is due for one of his pig games, and we predict that our defensive line will give him fits all day.
The intangibles favor Miami. Our defense has something to prove. They know that they face 12 men with the crowd, and I think they’ll be ready.
Actually, they’ll be up against 13 men because Joe Philbin always helps the opponent.
Our offense caught a spark and wants it to continue.
I can’t remember the last time Miami scored three touchdowns in a row on three consecutive drives like we did vs. the Packers. Sure, the last drive stalled (because Philbin strategized it that way and overruled his OC). But up to that point, we had a near perfect second half.
We can hope that continues.
