Well, Teddy Bridgewater is the quarterback for the Miami Dolphins. At the moment, we have no idea if that means for the rest of the season or for only this week. You would think there would be no way we see Tua Tagovailoa at quarterback again this season but if they think enough heat has died down maybe they’d put him back in.
This whole situation has triggered a lot of Miami Dolphins syndrome that we are all very used to and thought those days were behind us. Once again, we have learned that the Miami Dolphins will always Miami Dolphins and just when you think you have a normal running football team, you get shown that you in fact have the same franchise that has no clue how to get out of its own way.
I realize that Tua being placed in the concussion protocol for the 2nd time this year is different from situations such as grown men bullying each other and offensive line coaches skiing with morally casual women(hope you know what that whole line meant beginning with skiing). But the same numbness has once again encompassed me as if I was underwater.
But this team isn’t finished. In fact, they have a very realistic chance of making the postseason. A win on Sunday and a Jets loss to the Seahawks in Seattle and Miami are in.
Now, if you’re like me you want the Dolphins to make the playoffs for obvious reasons but you also have that feeling that it will just be like 2016, 2008, and the early 2000s playoff appearances where the Dolphins were completely destroyed where the game was over within the first 10 minutes. That will be a bad feeling if that’s what happens but I’d rather that than not making it.
This team was 8-3 and on top of the world and now they’re 8-7 and are living in the 7th circle of hell. I’d rather it end with a playoff birth. We know there’s a ton more nonsense and roster decisions that will soak up the majority of the offseason. Might as well be able to say we made it to the playoffs.
Teddy Bridgewater is the man we need to have faith in. I understand that will be impossible for some given how inept we’ve seen Teddy Bridgewater play this year and others. I myself wanted and wrote about Bridgewater being traded earlier in the year so that Skylar Thompson can be the backup. Now, I’m glad he’s here because I want the playoff birth and I think he gives the Dolphins the best chance to do it.
I think Teddy Bridgewater is capable of going to New England and being part of a winning team. If it were up in Buffalo or Kansas City I’d say no way. But this Patriots team is very beatable. He can play awful and they can still win.
There are some reasons why Teddy 2-Gloves can make this offense efficient thus leading to winning games. Here are those reasons.
