Sadly, no one cares.
The Colts play in the easiest division in the history of sports, and they STILL can’t win it. LMAO. The Colts are all set to lose the division to a team who got destroyed by the lowly Dolphins (Houston). The fans, the media, and even the NFL itself has given up on the Colts.
As for the Dolphins, everyone gave up weeks ago. This is a meaningless game in a meaningless year for both teams. Sad sad sad.
So the possibility of a Patriot-Panther Super Bowl is very real, and it’s causing some division among Dolphin fans about who to root for. On one hand, you having the lying, cheating Patriots, and all they stand for. Their owner says he will not question whatever penalty the NFL hands them for Deflategate, and then as soon as Tom Brady is suspended, the same owner whines and cries to the courts. Fight the penalty or accept it. Be a man! But do NOT say that you will accept it and then later fight it. And don’t draft thuggish murderers either.
On the other hand, the Panthers will be 18-0 entering the Super Bowl (let’s hope I’m wrong, and then this point is moot). Dolphin fans enjoy being the only undefeated team in history, and we don’t want Ted Ginn Jr. to be among those who take us off of that mountain. We really all have to pray and pray that both the Pats and the Panthers get knocked off.
We studied several articles this week about Lamar Miller, showing Miller’s own dissatisfaction with his low amount of carries. I used to blame Clueless Joe Philbin exclusively for the Dolphins poor offensive playcalling, but I see now it goes far beyond him. Mike Sherman, Dan Campbell, Mike Sherman’s son-in-law, Bill Lazor. They all suck. This is really the best case for decimating the coaching staff in 2 weeks and starting anew.
The ENTIRE stench of Philbin and ALL his coaches need to go.
Miller can be a stud, but he gets so few chances. It is ludicrous that our coaches say “We can’t run the ball when we’re losing,” but that’s about all we ever hear when they’re asked about why Miller routinely gets benched in the second half. He gains like 87 yards in the first half, but then ends up with only 90 yards total. You can do the math.
The coaching staff refuses to compensate for a shitty offensive line. Hell, they don’t even admit we have a shitty offensive line. Lazor and Zac Taylor still employ the 4-and-5 wideout formations. As we’ve seen ALL YEAR LONG, those do not work for us. Defenses don’t respect our receivers, and they blitz everyone. The opponent gets sacks and broken plays far more often than we burn them for TDs.
If Miller is unproductive in the first half, then I would agree to abandon the run. But when he’s lighting up opposing defenses for 7, 8, 9 yards at a time, then why on earth stop doing that?
Why stop running a play that works? It’s an insanely baffling question, yet Dolphin coaches (any of them) have the same answer, time after time after time: “Well, given the situation, we felt that passing gave us the best chance to win.”
Really? You have the choice of gaining 9 yards on the ground, or getting Tannehill sacked for Minus-9 yards. Which would YOU select?
Sorry, Dan Campbell. We gave you our support and a fair chance. But your brainless decisions prove that you’re not ready for this. Just ask Lamar Miller.
