A Win is a Win is a WIN

Well, it certainly was not pretty on Sunday to say the least. Jay Cutler looked horrendous, no big plays whatsoever (AGAIN,) a bad fumble by Jay Ajayi, and the list could go on for quite a while of all the problems on the Miami offense. However, our Fins found a way to get the win at the end of the day. To be transparent with everyone, I really do not care how the wins come, I just care that they come and they come often.

I want to take a quick second to say… THE HECK WITH YOU CUTLER. As I sat there watching the game, this man shows zero emotion during the game. He just has this stupid look on his face every time he makes a mistake and acts like he has no idea what is going on. I know it has only been four games but there is no reason to think that anything will change in the near future. I know, I know, “it is not all his fault ,“ but he is also not doing anything to help the offensive situation either. From this fan’s standpoint, I am beyond thankful that we only have this bum signed for this season.

I would be wrong if I did not take some time to talk about how great the defense looked. From the dominant play of Cam Wake, to the incredible fumble recovery by Reshad Jones, to the great presence of Lawrence Timmons and Kiko Alonso, I was extremely happy with the defensive effort for the game. Also, I thought Xavien Howard set the tone early with his physicality. The Titans offense seemingly never got anything going, throughout the entire game. Granted, Marcus Mariota and Taylor Lewan did not play, but I really do not believe it would have mattered much. Low key Matt Burke has had a tremendous start to the season with the Dolphins defense.

Now we are onto the Atlanta Falcons. On paper, this is a gigantic mismatch that doesn't favor Miami. Offensively the Falcons have some serious playmakers on offense. Guys like Matt Ryan, Devonte Freeman, Julio Jones, and Mohamad Sanu (who likely won't play this week) can completely take over any game that they play in. However, when you look at the other side of the ball, the Dolphins could take advantage of that Falcons defense. Of the 4 games this year, they have not given up less than 17 points in a single contest. In addition to that, they give up nearly 100 yards rushing per game, rushing the ball. If Miami's offensive line can rally behind the win of the last week and the events surrounding their offensive line coach, this could be a big week for Ajayi. The major key to helping one Jay will be getting the other one going.

Lastly, I want to say thank you to our players and to the remaining coaches in that  Miami Dolphins locker room. The amount of crap that they have had to deal with this year is beyond fathomable. The list includes, but is not limited, too: Losing Ryan Tannehill, losing Raekwon Mcmillan, losing Tony Lippett, having Timmons go AWOL, our offensive line coach blowing away the rest of his coaching career, a hurricane do a lot of damage to the South Florida area, bringing guys on the fly to “hopefully “fit in the system, a kneeling controversy, and having more travel miles in the first four weeks than half the whole league will have to travel for the whole year. Our players, as a whole, just go out every week and play hard.

All of these circumstances certainly do not make the season any less easy, but four weeks in, and we are .500 at 2-2. I do not know about you, but I am actually looking forward to the rest of the year. I want to see what else this team has in store. Whatever happens, it will certainly be an adventure. GO FINS… NOW AND FOREVER.

  1. Mike, great points as usual. Watching this team is like going to the dentist without novacane. The ineptitude of the offense has got me puzzled. We do have playmakers but for whatever reason no one is able to make a big play and get this team fired up. Even though its not all his fault, I can't defend Cutler any longer. He looks bored and lost and can't even generate enough to get some points in the first half. Defense looks good but will wear down at some point due to the offense being "3 and out" almost every time. Maybe it is time for Matt Moore to show what he can do. We can't look any worse. The incident with the OL coach brought back bad memories of Martin/Incognito. We continue to shoot ourselves in the foot. Never thought Tannehill was the answer and Cutler is not. Hope we don't go the Band-Aid route next year and try and trade for Manning or Rivers. Lets draft a QB and groom him to be "the man". Fins got so spoiled having Marino around all those years and never have to worry about drafting a QB. We are 2-2 but gotta get the offense and Ajayi going. "Go Fins"
