In a move that won’t hurt the Dolphins, special teamer Michael Thomas has ditched the team to go to the New York Giants.
Five years ago, Thomas came to the Dolphins in mid-season. He had a game-ending interception that helped us beat the Patriots that year. Since then? Nada.
Yeah, I know people count special team contributors as key ingredients to a team, but I don’t. Thomas was not our return man, so it’s not a big deal to replace him.
I’m more concerned that our DB coach, Lou Anarumo, also ditched Miami and went to New York. The DBs were the ONLY position that showed marked improvement over the past year or two, all under Coach Lou. I woulda fought to keep him, but we know the Adam Gase way. No-name, no-experience, no-success coaches are rewarded and promoted under Gase, while the good guys who are just starting to demonstrate marked improvement, are cast aside.
