I also watched Dan Campbell’s press conference twice now, noting several things. I also took in as many interviews and articles as I could cram in.
The thing that strikes me the most is that Richie Incognito said the Bills kept running the same running play over and over and over. The Bills linemen were laughing at our linebackers, because they just sat there and let the Bills pulling guard block them. Terrible.
Made me think…can you guys name ONE impactful play any of our linebackers have made all year? I cannot think of one sack or turnover. It might have happened, but it certainly wasn’t memorable.
It is so disgracefull that the Dolphins wasted a first-round draft pick on an unneeded, unnecessary benchwarming WR when we so desperately need a tough linebacker and some DBs who cover and hit.
I don’t know if Campbell will be offered the job next year, but if he does, I kinda see him as the type of guy who will DEMAND an opinion when it comes to the draft. And he will not be stupid enough to think that WR is our topmost concern.
- Campbell has watched Jamar Taylor run around in circles all year.
- He’s watched Brent Grimes fall down when trying to catch up to fast receivers who’ve just burned him.
- He’s watched Walt Aikens and Michael Thomas never get in position until it’s too late.
- He’s watched his linebackers make zero impactful plays.
- He’s watched defensive penalties destroy so many plays.
- He’s watched his overall defense give up 30+ points far too many times.
- He’s watched All Pros like Blake Bortles, Kirk Cousins, and Tyrod Someone pick us apart.
After all of that nonsense, do you think Campbell will sit around and let some suit say, “Hey! Let’s waste our first-round pick on a benchwarmer Wide Receiver!”?
