This isn't even a trap
game. Miami sucks. I mean, they historically suck. They suck so much that
they won in overtime with a Marino like game by Fitzpatrick (why isn't
Rosen playing again?). He was only the second Miami QB to throw for over
400-yards and 4 TDs in a single game (that's right, Marino was the
The Brilliant decision
to not give Rosen a single snap this season, just cost them one spot
in the NFL Draft to the 5th Pick. Now there's talk about Drafting Tua
Tagovailoa and using Fitzpatrick as a bridge to Tua. They would have had a
shot at Borrow, if they had played Rosen all season.
There is no way that
Miami marches into Foxboro in December and wins, even with Harvard's own Patriots-killer
Ryan Fitzpatrick still playing QB. "He’s a veteran quarterback. He’s been in the league for like 15 years, and so he’s seen a lot of defense. We’ve faced him multiple times, and one thing about him, he does a good job of reading
coverages," OLB coach and speaker for the Pats' Defenses Marcus Covington
said. "He does a good job of finding open guys, and he also does a good job of extending plays, whether it’s extending the play to throw it down the field, or extending the play by using his legs. So, he’s definitely a guy that you’ve got to prepare well for throughout the week or he can hurt you, whether it’s throwing or running, using his feet."
Half the team is already packed to
leave Miami for the off season.
But the Dolphins do
hate the Patriots so they will be looking to put a hurt on the Pats.
"This is a different team than when we played them earlier in the season, just like we’re a different team than when we played earlier in the season. When you look around the National Football League from Week 2 to Week 16, every team has changed, whether it’s the roster change, philosophy change, or your team has just evolved and gotten
better," Covington said. "And I’ll say the Miami Dolphins have gotten a lot better from Week 1 to now. And so their coaching staff has done a good job of preparing the players: they play hard, they do a lot of good things up front, they do a lot of good things with their receiver corps, and then of course we just talked about their quarterback just being a savvy vet that has played a lot of football and who can lead that group in the right direction."
These two teams know each other very well.
Miami offers some challenges
with all the turnover, new players and coaches. "The Dolphins, this is really, it’s a big challenge for us. They’ve got a lot of different faces that have
[joined the team], we don’t know this team maybe the same way we would know a normal division team because they’ve had so many bodies play on
defense," McDaniels said. "We were just talking about that as a staff. We’re in the process of really trying to hone in on who’s where, how they utilize their personnel, the different strengths and weaknesses. Our personnel department has done a good job of giving us updates on the people that are now in there that maybe we didn’t see earlier in the season." But
it shows how terrible the Dolphins are, when the Pats biggest concern are
their injury replacements.
Despite all the Pats
propaganda the two teams know each other as well as any two teams in the
NFL, And that absolutely favors the Pats Players. The Pats always find
players who are as smart as they are athletic. The Pats will be at Home in
the cold and wet snow, and the Dolphins will be planning their tropic post
season vacations with their families.
So just don't tell me
that we don't know who we know the Dolphins are. "They have a lot of different
guys," White said. "I know they’re banged up on defense and what-not, but those guys still go out there and they compete. They play hard, they play good coverage, they’re going to attack you. They’ve been playing tough football, and it’ll be a great challenge for us."
Oh for Christ sake.
Their HC is falling
apart. Their Defense is injured and held together with duct tape and
baling wire. Fitzpatrick just has his last best game, and does nor play
two great games in a row. Brady finally got his grove back last week. Now
they need to put a beating on a hapless Defense, and gain even more
confidence. The Dolphins are hapless.
They have a lot of new
faces, because they have injured players with no reason to fight back onto
the active roster. So what this is, is a practice game for the Offense to
continue to iron out the kinks in their changing roster. This is essentially
the centerpiece of a magnificent three-week mini-camp, where the Offense
has some serious practice time together to finally comes together as a
unit, or perish in the Playoffs.

Trump’s efforts to block the Ukraine investigation do not exist in a
