Trap Game - no matter how much this was talked about as a trap game, the Dolphins still fell into the trap
I don't necessarily see it this way. I know a lot of you here felt like the team wasn't ready to give it there best, & I can say that is likely true. However, I never thought there was a danger of losing this game to the Jaguars.
They are a much less talented team, with less experience. The problem was simply their D-line vs Miami's O-line. & possibly that the coaches weren't prepared to start the game or make the necessary adjustments to avoid the pressure on Tannehill. (which is reoccurring I might add)
I believe, even without the defensive TDs the Dolphins simply would've outlasted the Jaguars & won the game a little later. If Miami were dominant then it would've been a blow out like most of us hoped but I'm not disappointed with an arguably closer game.
I will say that I think the biggest problem with the entire franchise is the attitude. Rather than being respected for winning the Miami Dolphins have a perception ineptitude and uncertainty. I'm sick of the way this franchise is talked about & looked at by seemingly everyone who isn't a fan. & that has lead to is the biggest problem of all; this team not approaching their work with belief AND almost every team that plays Miami believes they have a chance. Perfect example: Jacksonville came into the game ready to give everything they had because they truly believed they could take the Dolphins down.
We saw it last year too with Buffalo, Tampa, NY, and Carolina in the 2nd half. All teams we should not have lost to or even given them the idea of us being beatable. That has
to be changed before the "trap" notion can dissolve
