JT was interviewed after the game yesterday. It was a different JT than we've ever heard. He was going on and on about how he made the right move by going to the Jets. And while he was happy, the team goal was to win it all - and they had that chance.
And then he said he was having fun. Its fun to play for Rex. He's enjoying himself.
I don't think he ever said that here (or if he did, it was a long, long time ago). And certainly you haven't heard that from any Dolphins players in the last ten years or so. Sheesh, it almost seems like this team is bereft of fun.
And isn't this a game? A sport? Isn't it *supposed* to be fun? Why isn't it? Coaching? Ownership? Approach? Apathy from the fans?
Now for the change of heart I've had: I want the Jets to win it all. I want JT to be happy. And I want him to come back and retire as a Dolphin, and get his name up on the ring of honor.
That way, there would be a monument to the futility of the franchise. A guy in the ring of honor who was very good for this team, but whose chief accomplishment was helping some other team win it all.
