On Sunday, the Dolphins play the Buffalo Bills, led by either some guy named Tyrod or else led by bust EJ Manuel, depending on who is injured the least.
Joe Philbin always had trouble with the Bills, and we never understood why. When we lost to Buffalo, we lost big. When we won, we squeaked by in games that featured a lot of field goals. And in each of those games, win or lose, the Bills featured a horrendous joke of a quarterback who we should have pounded into submission.
Let’s hope we can shake off the New England game and get back into this race. The Division titles are already settled, but no team is running away with the wild cards, so it might as well be us.
We will know right away when the Dolphins come out of the gate. We’ll know if the Dolphins are playing fast and tough, or lethargic and scared. That will be up to Dan Campbell’s preparation.
The honeymoon is over for Campbell.
Now it’s time to be a seasoned head coach. Starting the game by willingly choosing to give the ball to Tom Brady was not wise, and let’s hope Campbell gets that nonsense out of his system. Kicking off to EJ Manuel will NOT be as costly, I guarantee you.
We also have to re-face the same group of Dolphin Pro Bowlers who Joe Philbin decided to get rid of, such as Richie Incognito and Dan Carpenter, along with others like Charles Clay, Chris Hogan, and more. Each of those men hurt us in the first Bills game. I have to imagine that their intensity and their quest for revenge will have subsided since Week Two. I doubt they have have hatred for Campbell like they had hatred for Philbin.
On a side note, and yet another reason we love Rex Ryan, the brash Buffalo coach admitted that he wouldn’t want to mess with Dan Campbell in a fight! Rex was confident that he could whoop Channing Crowder, but didn’t want to tangle with Campbell. You gotta love Rex. You gotta wish he were here coaching us.
Dolphins 26, Bills 16.
