Blow Out Win!


What a day!   Carl Leone and I were at the game today and let me tell you the stadium was rocking.  Miami is back in the playoff race so I am hoping we get some momentum going. Next week is going to be very difficult on the road against Detroit. Miami has clearly established they are in the top half of the league. Now they need to establish they are in the top 3rd and a playoff team.  There are reasons for optimism everywhere. Our defense is playing so well and now the Lazor offense is really starting to click. Tannehill is continuously getting better and we certainly appear to be a better team going into the 2nd half of the season.  If we can go 5-3 in the second half of the season this team is position to make it. Phins Up!

You and Carl are lucky to have make that game.

Great win. Indeed this team looks playoff bound.

My only concern is that this team has yet to win a close game. All wins have been by 10+ points! If this team is going to go far into the playoffs it will need to learn how to win the close games against tough opponents like Green Bay.

Hey linearz, maybe now, we are so good that no one can blow us out.

Carl,

That would be nice... To come back to Earth though, this is the NFL. Chances are this team will end up playing more close games than blow outs as the competition gets tougher.

Talent wise, this team may be the best we've seen since the days of Shula. Certainly the receiving corps is the best we've had since those days, and Tannehill is the best QB since Marino. And the defense is starting to look like the monster we had in the early 2000's.

But there are still some holes. Against a good, physical D-Line, or offensive line struggles. Tannehill still has inconsistent accuracy. Depth at RB is thin. And I'm still not sure what we will see when we are playing a close game down to the wire. Will this team choke like it did against Green Bay, or can it learn how to win those games? IMO, this is the kind of thing that separates the great teams from the good teams.
