I get it, the Dolphins don’t have a Lousaka Polite type at their disposal that can come in and guarantee them a yard on 3rd and short. But that doesn’t mean we have to trot Jacoby Brissett out there to run the sneak, which he isn’t that good at anyway, or fake it and let Jacoby make a play. Nope, we don’t have to do that.

Keep Tua in there and have him make a decision or I don’t know maybe run the ball with Duke or Lindsay. Do something that’s not Jacoby Brissett coming in and all of us collectively rolling our eyes back into our heads Undertaker style.

It’s actually odd, come to think of it, because the Dolphins are creative and solid from scoring from inside the five and even at the one-yard line. You’d think they would be solid at gaining a yard from anywhere on the field but they aren’t.

I’d much rather fail with Tua on the field than see Brissett lumber out there and not pick up the yard. I know that Flores doesn’t care about my feelings, but in this instance, it be nice if he considered them.
