Back in 2016, the Dolphins started 1-4. Then Jay Ajayi decided he was going to pack a whole career into one season and he had three 200 yard games in one year. Because of him and the steadiness of Ryan Tannehill(that’s an oxymoron right?) Miami made the playoffs only to get trounced by the Steelers.
Even if you look at last year, the Dolphins climbed out of a 1-3 hole. Ryan Fitzpatrick started it, Tua kept it going and Ryan Fitzpatrick nearly ended it. Miami didn’t make the playoffs, as we well know, but the team did go 10-6. That’s a record that usually makes the playoffs and given that there was an extra seed it was downright odd that 10-6 wasn’t good enough.
I get that those teams have nothing to do with this current team. My point is that we’ve seen this franchise do what needs to be done before.
This Dolphin’s team has every chance in the world to have a similar plight. Everything thus far has gone against the Dolphins. Yes, most of it has been their own doing, but the fact remains that it has been a near miserable season being a Miami Dolphin’s fan. With a win against a winless Jaguars team, whose coach is trying to get pull a Costanza attempting to get himself fired, the Dolphins can generate some much-needed positive vibes flowing in South Beach. Then next week they play the not solid at all Falcons and then who knows what could happen.
Lose on Sunday, and I think someone is fired. Not sure who, but someone has to go if they fall short again. But let’s not think about that now. Let’s do what we can to think good thoughts. Good thought. We’re thinking good thoughts.
