But if your gonna link Tua to someone its not Jones who was in a different draft , its Herbert.
Yep, I agree. The best quarterback in last year's draft is Justin Herbert. He has all the tools to be very good. He can do it all. When he is done, he could own several passing records.
Look , Dave ... you know as well as I do that we have seen this before.
Favorable part of schedule , pull off some wins , get us back to respectability. So you have renewed confidence in your young QB. But the losses earlier cannot be discounted or forgotten either. So we finish the year with a somewhat respectable record , Ross who is a bad owner brings back Grier and Flores because the feeling is that we are that team in the second half of the season and not the first. Another slow to develop draft class or one that does not develop at all and this rollercoaster continues and that is how we are stuck in mediocrity. If you are going to suggest Jones is better because of the staff around him then you need to take action and do something about it because teams who were lesser than us when this regime took over have now surpassed us.
All homer jokes aside , its time to face reality or we will still be living in 1972 for quite sometime.
I cannot argue with you. I like the winning streak, but I didn't see a whole lot to get excited about. This was a game where our lame OCs should have tested the Jets very young secondary as other teams have done, but we stuck to the safe dink and dunk passes. Pure frustration. The Dolphins could pull off 3 more wins in a row (Panthers - have a better record than us, Giants, Jets) and get to 7-7 but the last three games are the Saints, Titans, and Patriots. I'll take it one game at a time and enjoy the season, but the Jets game showed me that this team is still struggling.
One thing I will say is that the Dolphins/Jets rivalry has always been a rivalry where you throw out the records. So, I will be happy that we were not upset in this one.
