All he had to do was confirm it. Yes, we know that nothing has been signed yet. But if Vic Fangio were 100% coming to the Dolphins, he could have said so already.
Instead, he’s being cryptic and telling everyone he’s unsure.
Honestly, I don’t blame him.
It’s not Fangio’s job to quash NFL rumors. These reporters nowadays, especially the so-called insiders, are dying to break a story before anyone else. It gets their name mentioned on ESPN. Is the story true? Who cares! They’ll interview me on ESPN for breaking the story! So when one guys lies and says that a rumor is a fact, a bunch of other hacks report it as well. Pretty soon everyone believes it, even though nothing has been verified.
I hope Fangio comes to Miami, but his tenure isn’t starting off very well. All he had to do was say Yes I am going to sign, instead of saying, “I didn’t sign anywhere yet.” Hmmmm….
