Yes, we’re all fully aware that a win against the Jets hurt our draft standing. (We were also hurt by Adam Vinatieri choking on an easy FG and a missed extra point vs. the Steelers, but we can’t help that).
But to me, it’s all worth while, for now. The Jets are the laughingstock of the sports world this morning, and the Dolphins are an afterthought. There will be no 0-16 teams in Miami this year. Jet fans have learned first hand what I’ve been saying about Gase for years. The media has caught on too. No Dolphin jokes today, and it feels great.
Do yourself a favor, and go to the NY Daily News and NY Post sports sections online. It is comedy gold to see the NY writers lambasting the Jets. And especially Gase.
They are 3 or 4 years behind me, however, in pointing out that Gase had success in Denver because of Peyton Manning, not the other way around. They are years behind me in pointing out Gase’s refusal to run the ball. First and goal from the two, and Gase ignored LaVeon Bell. Thank you, Adam !
The burden of an 0-16 season is now off of us, so I say TANK AWAY the rest of the season.
And now for the bad news… Word is that Stephen Ross has agreed to giving away ANOTHER home game in 2020 AGAIN. Ross prefers his Dolphins to play in front of British soccer hooligans, rather than a raucous home crowd. As I point out often, home games are like precious gold in the NFL. Teams claw all year long to gain home field advantage in the playoffs. But then there’s Stephen Ross. He simply doesn’t get it.
It’s ridiculous that the NFL itself promotes these stupid international games, but it’s even worse when our gullible owner doesn’t see the harm in giving away a valuable home game.
My blood is boiling again. Ross does so much to hurt his own team, and he seems clueless about it.
