It ain’t over yet. If anything, it’s just beginning.
Like we’ve been saying for 4 straight weeks, we’re about to face a team with a very pathetic offense and an unknown young quarterback who should be susceptible to blitzes as long as we don’t make it easy for him.
In the previous month, we did make it easy for them. It’s frustrating and embarrassing to lose to the likes of Tyrod Taylor, Kirk Cousins, 87-year old Ryan Fitzpatrick , and draft bust Blake Bortles. None of those QBs is any good, yet 3 of those 4 beat us and the other one tied us (minus a special teams TD by Jarvis Landry).
Let’s do our best to forget the last 3 games, as we also try to forget the last 3 years.
Those days are gone. We have a new coach and hopefully a new determination in our players.
Coach Campbell is still SAYING all the right things, but let’s hope that deep down he hated Joe Philbin’s strategies and secretly disagreed with virtually every decision Clueless Joe ever made.
Any smart coach would.
And finally, just for fun…l took a peek back the Dolphins official website back in 2011, right before Joey took over. Here is an interesting snippet:
• The efficiency of quarterback Matt Moore continues to be remarkable. He has thrown two interceptions in the last seven games. It’s been a while since a Dolphins quarterback has been so mistake-free. Another aspect of Moore’s game that is highly underrated is his running ability. He has a great knack of knowing when to take off, when to slide, and when to just throw the ball away. You just don’t see many minus plays with this guy. Every game, I am more and more impressed.
• Can we finally put to bed all those questions about Reggie Bush being an every down back? It is clear, abundantly clear, that Bush can run the ball 20-25 times a game and still be fresh in the fourth quarter. This is a unique player, a unique person.
• Cornerback Vontae Davis is finally playing at an All-Pro level. He is a healthy and seems so at peace with himself. His sack against the Raiders was the first of his career, though I’ve got a feeling there are many more to come. When Davis is at his best, he does not need help from a safety. The value of this can not be overstated. There is no reason why Davis can’t now reside among the top cornerbacks in the league.
BUSH, MOORE, and DAVIS. 3 men tossed aside by Clueless Joe.
