This is the third week in a row–with another coming next week as well–where the Dolphins can really help their future by losing.
We had business beating the Philadelphia Eagles, but that pathetic squad from Pennsylvania didn’t get the memo that the Dolphins stink. Somehow, the Eagles lowered themselves to our level, and we overcame a 14-point deficit to earn the win and blow the draft. Did you see the Eagles’ win on MNF? The entire 4th quarter, all they did was pass the ball to their tight end. Where the hell was that vs. the Dolphins?
Next up were the Jets, who adequately lowered their effort, but luckily we lowered ours as well.
The Giants have Eli Manning back and an overdue Saquon Barkley. NYG should be able to run the ball all day long, but I said the same thing about the Eagles too. Assuming Brian Flores is still trying to win games, even if the players give it their all…we might lose this one outright. We have no offensive weapons left, and our defensive secondary of no-names just can’t keep excelling as they have been (can they?).
I expect the Dolphins to come out fast and furious, but I think the Giants defense will take care of business. The NY crowd will be strongly behind Eli, and I the the G’s will feed off of that. I hope so anyway.
