The game only airs on the NFL Network. Even the real networks won’t cover this game!
Looks like we’re getting the D-list of announcers too. Dolphin-hater Tony Dungy, ESPN dropout Mike Tirico, and Doug Flutie. Jeez, who even knew Flutie was an announcer? The guy hasn’t been around the NFL in a decade, and he’s hired to analyze the Jets and Dolphins?
So Adam Gase was commenting on why Jay Ajayi wasn’t in the game for the two failed rushing attempts at the end of the game. Gase said, “That was my fault. I did a bad job.”
Ya know, every week we hear him say that about one or more of his own decisions. He’s done an okay job this year so far, but he is a terribly slow learner. As I’ve pointed out for months, somebody always has to tell Gase to do this or try that. He lacks quick decision making and instead overthinks. He doesn’t seem to recognize what’s going on out there until after a stalled drive and someone tells him. I used to think this was all just my own perception, but Gase himself is admitting these things.
I wouldn’t mind if he said, “Damien Williams had a good game, so I wanted to give him a couple of shots to get in the endzone.” I’d buy that. But instead, he messed up and really did want Ajayi in there but forgot to call that package.
I mean, look at this glaring fact: Our own head coach did not realize that his first-string running back was on the bench for the TWO most important plays of the game. “I did a bad job” is an understatement.
As for the Jets, I think we can walk away with a win and breathe easy. No more heart attacks. We face a newbie quarterback. In the past, these kids have given the Dolphins trouble, but I like the way our D played last week, and I think Vance Joseph will design things to get in the kid’s face all night. The Jets have a decent running game, but they’re just playing for pride at this point, and I think we may FINALLY see a desperate Dolphins team instead of December Quitters as in years past.
Of course we’ll be monitoring Matt Moore, but my own prediction is that he’ll be a non-factor. Short passes, a solid running game, and moving the chains will keep us in the lead all night. I don’t think we’ll need any heroics from Moore.
Dolphins 30, Jets 13.
By the way, as Dolfans, this is the second week in a row that we have to root for the Patriots to win. I want to puke.
