The last time Miami played the awful Jags team was last year.
The Jaguars outscored us.
Well, our offense anyway. Thanks to Blake Bortles being a jv quarterback who gave us 14 free and easy points, we came out on top. But it was an ugly game. Tannehill looked awful. Our defense couldn’t stop the run (Thank God Jax kept calling for passes!!).
In other words, except for a few pick-sixes, we would have gotten destroyed in this game last year.
Make no mistake about how terrible the Jaguars are. I mean, they were silly enough to think that Chad Henne was a quality starter, so that tells you their mindset right off the bat.
They have a decent running game, but no passing whatsoever. No one to really fear, except Jared Odrick, who got kicked to the curb by the Dolphins for doing nothing wrong.
I have a bad, bad feeling about this should-be easy game. Odrick will be on a mission, and he knows better than anyone how to exploit our offensive line. Joe Philbin NEVER has the Dolphins ready to play inferior opponents. I think the refs will be calling anything and everything against Long Suh, to make up for the non-penalties/fines last week.
We should know early how this game will go. If Miami comes out on all fronts and shows it’s the better team right away, we could have a fun afternoon. But if we struggle against a crap team–just like we did last week–the Jags could sneak one out and win.
And then Stephen Ross will give Joey P a contract extension.
