No excuses for this blowout and almost shutout loss but an unusual rumor might make some sense
Anyone that watched this game could see that Jay Cutler was constantly throwing off his back foot. The only problem was there wasn’t much zip on the ball until the last scoring drive of the game with time running out. It was only at this point when he did step into a few throws and wasn’t throwing off target as much.
So what is this rumor that might explain this. A low blow to the nether region with Jay not wearing an athletic protector. It is also stated that most NFL players do not wear them. It would make sense in a loss of power just like in fighting if this did happen to him somehow or by someone as in a Jets player.
Unfortunately I don’t have visual confirmation as most of the game was unwatchable as in reception on my TV. But this also applies to trying to re watch this game should I get the opportunity. And be glutton for punishment while searching out for this rumored moment in this dog of a game.
So this turned out to be a loss 20-6. If you go back to the last game a win over the Chargers – by field goals mind you. There was better ball movement that game to set up those FG’s. And Cutler was also throwing off his back foot but was more of a marvel from having completions. Fast forward to this game with not many completions that same method of Cutler becomes negligence.
Only a small glimpse on the last scoring TD drive with Cutler and Parker. Is this what can blossom as a lot of people have speculated?

Still missing in action
All three units, all the coaching staff. In a game like this you can pretty much blanket the whole team as to what went wrong.
Maybe the game reception not coming in well on my TV was a blessing in disguise because this ranks as one of the worst games the Miami Dolphins have played in a long time.
Phin Fact: In 103 matchups, the Dolphins have only been shut out by the Jets once: Nov. 18, 2001.
This game was so bad there wasn’t a third down converted on offense until the start of the fourth quarter. This type of play from the offense bleeds over into the defense and special teams by making them overworked having to be back on the field so fast.
Last week’s game I had to leave out game highlights due to my own time restraints beyond my control. I checked the Miami Dolphins twitter feed for official NFL game highlight tweets and there wasn’t any. Maybe they don’t want to view this dumpster fire of a game also.
Cutler called this outing a wake up call and let’s hope they stay woken as the Miami Dolphins will need it traveling to London. The next game playing the Saints will have more time changes and some jet lag to go along with it.
