These Dolphins sure don’t fail to disappoint do they?! They come out smoking hot and defeat New England then flop the next 2 games that they should have won. I could have accepted the losses to Buffalo and Kansas City a lot better if they would have at least put up a fight. They didn’t even compete which was the most disheartening part of it all.
It is obvious that Philbin screwed up with the handling of his QB situation. Some want Matt Moore and some want Tannehill. I really am getting tired of the excuse train that has been following this controversy as well as the 2 straight 19 point losses. Some examples are:
Receivers drop passes.
The offensive line gives up a lot of sacks.
The offense put the D in bad situations.
Our Linebacker suck.
We have injuries.
We should have ran the ball.
We should have passed the ball.
BLAH! BLAH! BLAH! BLAH! BLAH!
I. DON’T. CARE!!!
You want to know what I care about? WINS! I don’t care who is playing QB, hell, let Pee-Wee Herman do it. I don’t care who coaches, Mickey Mouse will do just fine if he can lead the team to victory! This team needs to stop making excuses to the media, themselves, their team mates, the fans, the coaches and the rest of the league and WIN!
Now that all that is out in the open, it is also clear that Tannehill will start against Oakland and I am fine with that. Again, don’t really care. I also don’t care how he plays against them because they are the bottom feeders of the league although it can be debated that Jacksonville is not too far behind who we also play this year by the way. I EXPECT HIM TO HAVE A GOOD GAME. If he fails and we lose I will criticize him to no end but if he wins, it will not matter to me! You know what will impress me when it comes to Tannehill and Philbin? Put up more points than Aaron Rodgers when we play the Packers. Give it hell against the Bears and COMPETE. Beat the Chargers AT HOME! Again, COMPETE against the Lions! Those will be the true tests of Philbin and Tannehill. If you have any standards as a fan then this game against Oakland on Sunday is meaningless when it comes to how Philbin and Tannehill perform. It should be expected that they beat a horrible Raiders team.
