The Atlanta Falcons have never been the same after handing a free-gift Super Bowl championship to the Patriots three years ago, and their long decline continues. On Sunday, they barely put up a fight vs. Houston. The Texans got to 3-2. Let’s hope they start losing soon, because as we all know, the worse they do, the better our draft will be. Thanks for nothing, Atlanta.
The Steelers, however, were more generous. They blew a home game late, and they fell to 1-3. It would be wonderful to see them stay at one win all year.
Prepare yourself for a week of bad jokes and mocking leading up to our next game, as the 0-5 Redskins come to Miami next week to face our 0-4 Dolphins. This one could be a real stinker. Our defense, as bad as it is, is actually better than the Redskins horrid offense. We have a chance!!
I watched Minkah Fitzpatrick have another good game for Pittsburgh in a losing effort, and it got me thinking that we should have let him play safety. This is an experimental season anyway. The kid begged to play safety for a winless team, and our coaching geniuses said no. Why? Why not try it? Yes, I know the coaches make the decisions, not the players. But he has so much talent, and he’s telling you how to use him. Why not listen? I don’t get the inherent stubbornness in the Dolphin coaches.
Remember 2016, when Jay Ajayi rushed for 1,200 yards (including a record TWO DIFFERENT 200-yard games in the same season), and made the Pro Bowl? He asked for more carries and so Arrogant Adam Gase gave him away to Philly (where he promptly won a Super Bowl). Sometimes, the players know what they’re talking about.
Fitzpatrick and Ajayi played football their entire lives. Gase, Philbin, and Flores, COMBINED, have played in zero games. Zero. Before Ross gave them jobs, they had coached ZERO games as well. What makes them think that they know better than the players out there in the trenches?
