Now that we have a victory out of the the way, it saddens me to say that the Dolphins should start losing. With no hope of the playoffs, we might as well experiment and let’s see what some different players can do. Starting with Josh Rosen. We can’t lose on purpose. We can’t ask players to drop the ball or miss tackles on purpose. But we can play some of the guys who otherwise might not be playing. Let’s see what they have.
There is a huge difference between picking 1st or 2nd in the draft and picking 5th or 6th, which is exactly where the Dolphins will be if they win a few more games. And today’s game is very winnable, as the Colts come at us with a 3rd-string QB and an ancient kicker who blew a game last week.
It’s painful to root against the Dolphins. It hurts me. But I know it’s for the best.
That’s why the 3rd-and-20 blitz vs. the Steelers didn’t bother me as much as it bothered some others. It’s a risky call and probably cost us the game…but did we really want to win that game? Flores knows his job isn’t on the line, so why not call it? I think we’ll see more and more plays like that as the season progresses…the old “we got nothing to lose plays.”
So the second half of our season starts at Indy, and let’s see where that takes us. Come join the chat.
