I like my colleagues over at the Phinsiders. I really do.
Despite the fact that they wrong 90% of the time, and despite the fact that they banned me from their site because I corrected them too many times. Still, they are true Dolfans, and we have to respect that.
In the latest example of how wrong they are, the Phinsiders today are defending Jamar Taylor. The blogger Evan Silva correctly stated that Jamar Taylor was a bust, and the Phinsiders went nuts!
The Phinsiders humorously said that Taylor is “developing into a solid player.” So am I. So are you. We’re all developing. We don’t want developing. After three years, we want developed. DevelopED.
Taylor has faced some injuries, and that is true. But when he is healthy and at his very best, he’s still an average-at-best player. He has had opportunity after opportunity to step in and become impactful, but it just hasn’t happened.
It’s just another example of the Phinsiders’ curious policy of only saying nice-nice things about the Dolphins and never engaging in real debate. Soon they’ll be telling us how awesome Dion Jordan is again!
Let’s move on from Jamar Taylor. Let’s hope he is an adequate nickel CB and let’s hope that Brice McCain proves the coaches right. And let’s hope that Joe Philbin never gets rid of our All Pro cornerback Vontae Davis and….oh, too late.
