That is the one word that comes to mind with Miami's performance today against the Browns. They were on their 3rd and 4th string QBs, without their top WR, without their top pro bowl corner, need I go on?
Last week, the shitty performance was chalked up to, "Belichick is just a great coach" when we lost to an injury/suspension decimated Patriots team.
Except this one is a lot different. We were at home. We had to pray to baby Jesus for a THIRD missed FG from Cleveland to not be embarrassed by a loss to probably the worst team in the NFL, even when healthy, which the Browns were not even close to.
The Dolphins were also out coached. Badly. How is it that you cannot figure out how to stop one player? Terrelle Pryor toasted us, at nearly every possible position. What the hell Miami? Make a damn adjustment for pete's sake! Pryor had like 200 all purpose yards!
"We start slow"
"We have too many 3 and outs"
"We don't get stops when it counts"
"We are right there. We just need to execute"
All excuses that have come out of the Dolphins players mouth so far in this young season. Who gives a damn? You guys started slow today again, had too many 3 and outs, didn't get stops when you should have and if Cleveland had their starting kicker in the game you would have lost again!
Everyone was quick to hand out a "moral victory" after playing Seattle tough in the opener. If there are such things as "moral victories", then please tell me what this one is?
We should be proud of nothing.
Wanna change my mind Miami?
Beat the Bengals on Thursday. Show me that these are just growing pains of a young team and an inexperienced coaching staff. Let me know we are headed in the right direction. Don't give me a reason to start hoping we are shitty enough to have a top 5 pick in the draft.
BEAT. THE. BENGALS.
