I can't say I am a student of the game of football when it comes to posting comments critical of many aspects of the game, however; having watched every Miami dolphin game since the inception of the team I do feel qualified to make certain observations. My first observation is this - how many times this season have we seen Ryan T attempt a long pass to Wallace only to have Wallace break stride and almost stop to try and make the catch only to have the defensive player break up the pass? Too many I would say. The one pass thrown to him this year, hitting him in stride was thrown by Moore. Admittedly it may be too early to start calling T-hill out as an average quarterback with great athletic ability - someone who would be a very good back-up qb. The reason is obvious, he played most of the season on his back or on the run so at this juncture saying he is not the future QB for this team would be premature, however; can we agree his arm is not a cannon?
I won't even go into how many current NFL QB playing very well in 2013 the fins passed up for T-hill. There is so much to break down and analyze about the 2013 Miami dolphins it is mind boggling but many of you have done a decent job in my opinion. I have to think coach Joe has the skills, knowledge and understanding of the game to be a great head coach so I am not going to start on him but as he said the buck stops at him. How much input does he have as far as player personnel? Is Ireland the last word on that or is it a consensus between him and the coaching staff? Some folks say Ireland has made some great choices involving draft picks and F/A but I say with the number of players he has chosen to play for the fins he would have to get a few right. I believe the slate on the Dismal failure of the Parcells era should be finally wiped clean.
Do we blame the defensive front for looking like a bunch of punks on the run, or linebackers who can not cover the middle or do we blame poor performance of the offense making the defense stay on the field most of the game? I don't know but I will say there is plenty of blame to go around. What about the last two games? Who gets the blame? We all saw what happened and it was ugly in nearly every aspect of the game. I'm an old man who would like to see the once great Miami Dolphins back atop the AFC east but I'm worried the remainder of my years of watching them play will be as they have the past decade. I have to ask the $50,000 question WTF is going on in Miami the past 10 years?
