OK, So the Dolphins squeaked by the Jags with the team riding the defense for the win.
If you watched the game or even read about it then you already know that our defense was superb and our offense might as well not have suited up in the first half because they ran something like a total of 9 plays for a 12 yards and yet we were still winning and getting the ball to open up the 2nd half.
With all that being said, I am giving Tannehill & Philbin a PASS! Yup, that’s right, I am not holding it against them. This team got the win even though it was in horrendous fashion.
I have said all along that the true tests of Tannehill & Philbin will be against the Bears, (which they won), Chargers, & Lions. I expected them to beat the Jags, even though I admit I expected a lot more out of the Phins, they won as expected. The Ravens also pose another test for our coach & QB but that is far down our schedule so we will talk about that in a month or so.
The reason that I say the Chargers & Lions pose a huge test for Tanne & Philbin is because:
One: They are 2 really good defenses, the Lions own the best one in the league as a matter of fact.
Two: These teams both find ways to win ugly games, just look at the Lions victory over the Falcons yesterday.
Do you think Philbin can come up with a game plans to win? And can Tanne execute those Plans? Because Rivers & Stafford won’t be throwing two pick 6 interceptions to hand us the game. Enjoy the Jags win as I am but remember, if we were playing probably anyone other than Jacksonville yesterday, with the way our offense performed, we most likely walk out of that game in the loser column.
Hopefully our offense can put it together for these next 2 games.
