You can make the argument that in the NFL any win is good. But when your QB is playing poorly and you struggle against what is probably the worst team in the league, you expect more. So that's one reason today was met with a sort of yawn.
But there's another factor: the loss of Jose Fernandez really struck south Florida pretty hard. It affected fans, the media, the community.
So it's kind of a "meh that's nice the Dolphins won but in the scheme of things it really doesn't matter"
Dan LeBatard captured it well in this article: http://www.miamiherald.com/sports/spt-columns-blogs/dan-le-batard/article104096841.html
And let me add my two cents. Miami is always eager for a winner. And larger than life personalities are hard to come by. There was the period when Lebron was here and Wade was here. Then they both left.
And the funny thing is that even though most people around here don't care about the Marlins, Jose stood out as being that personality. When he pitched, they called it Jose day and people came out to the games. Or at least paid attention to how he was doing.
He was the up-and-coming new face of Miami. Sorry Dolphins players, but none of you have that mix of swagger, personality, and skill on the field.
It's a sad day in Miami and the Dolphins? They come second.
