A couple of Patriots tidbits that affect the Dolphins. Maybe.
Rob Gronkowski, who fell down to enable the Miami Miracle to take place, has retired. Whoever his backup is will probably score 5 TDs and gain 400 yards against the Dolphins. We are consistently the worst team in the world at covering TEs, especially backups.
Pats owner Robert Kraft continues to embarrass himself. If he just pled guilty and allowed a few jokes at his expense, it would be water under the bridge by now. But since he refuses to admit to any wrongdoing, he is making it worse.
By the way (and this seems to be a weekly occurrence), the Dolphins signed YET ANOTHER tight end. Some unknown named Clive Walford. That’s SEVEN tight ends on the roster and one defensive end. But don’t worry. Our new coach and GM have a plan.
