2. This game determines how the rest of the season goes
I know I am putting a lot of stock into this Week 7 game, but I truly believe this game will determine how the rest of the season goes. That is a vague statement, and it’s up for interpretation.
You can go many ways with it, and one of the ways I’m going with is, if Miami loses this game, it’s going to be a very long year. Miami will end up getting a top 5 pick, but they traded their first-round pick to the Eagles, so the Eagles will have a top 5 pick.
I do not see Miami winning many games if they lose back-to-back games to the Jaguars and Falcons.
I also think you could take that statement as Miami will change their entire team before the year ends. Coaches will be fired, players will be traded, and the team will never look the same. Winning cures all, so a win over the Falcons could help a lot, but a loss will set things in motion for this roster to be blown up.
Before the year started, fans were excited and had high hopes for this team. The fan base will turn quickly on the Dolphins, and they will want accountability. The fans deserve accountability, and they will get it.
This is the biggest game of the season because of its implications on the rest of the year and the future of Miami.
