3 things Skylar Thompson must do to not have the Dolphins get obliterated
By Matt Serniak
For any type of success on offense, Skylar Thompson needs to let it fly.
We saw last week Skylar was hesitant when he dropped back. He would get to the back of his drop, look downfield, and then quickly pull the ball down and roll to his right. He did this, at times, when receivers were open. That can’t happen this week. Not if the Dolphins want to not get crushed or at least cover the now 14-point spread.
Skylar needs to trust his eyes and let the ball go when Hill, Waddle, or whoever gets open. If it gets picked off, oh well. Better to go down swinging than to watch Josh Allen lead scoring drive after scoring drive because you keep punting over and over again.
What we need is the Skylar Thompson we saw from the preseason. Yes, I realize that many of you will laugh at that because Skylar did that against extreme backups but that doesn’t mean that he can’t still play with that aggressive attitude. He has Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle to throw to. Not Erik Ezukanma and Braylon Sanders. Make having the best receiving duo matter.
