I think we can all agree that Fitzpatrick is a FS, slot CB, and boundary CB. Can he play SS? I'm sure he can once he learns it, but you are wasting his coverage skills there. I think we have a good body of work from last year to know what he can do, and a bad day out of position will not tarnish that.

“It is what it is,” Minkah Fitzpatrick said, via Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald. “She’s being honest and saying how she feels. There’s nothing wrong with it. I wish she would have addressed me first and talked to me first before it happens, but it is what it is. She feels very strongly.

“She’s not wrong. Coach has asked me do something right now. I got to do what they ask me to do. If we have to have some discussions in the future, we’ll have those discussions.”

The Dolphins are running short at the moment, with with Reshad Jones, T.J. McDonald and Walt Aikens all injured. So Bobby McCain‘s been working at free safety, forcing Fitzpatrick into an unnatural position for a 207-pound player.

Oh no not another mom or wife putting their .02 in. I said it in another post that its scary that fitz plays so many positions. Is he a jack of all trades and master of none?

It's frustrating as all heck why this team / organization continues these failed strategies involving players, particularly the only two or three good ones they actually have. They drafted this guy, arguably the best player available, into a position of relative strength, leading to this quagmire where the kid is all over the place last of which is developing at his best and more natural position.

Any wonder why we are in this infinite loop?

Hire the mom she seems to know better than the current coaches what to do.

Ever notice it is always Omar Kelly getting into social media spats with players and/or their families? The other guys were only attacked Miko Grimes.

There is a reason for that which is why most of us have ignored Omar's articles for the most part. I think I started to read them for the first time in years this year, but it is what it is still.

I refuse to pay to read his stuff online so I only see stuff here that's quoted or what he posts on Twitter.

Big Brother is watching.

:haha

If there is one that I would pay for it would be the Miami Herald as both Armando Salguero and Barry Jackson are top notch, but they need to come down on their price for the football section. Last year's price was very good. I don't mind paying for good quality stuff as they work hard to get it out there. My wife will just have to do without flowers .... lol.

A little more on seeing Fitzpatrick at SS.

Dave Hyde (Sun Sentinel) wrote:
3. I’m not nearly as worried as Minkah Fitzpatrick’s mom is that Brian Flores doesn’t understand what he has in the second-year safety. He’s being used close to the line with other safeties out and, as mom points out, he’s not a linebacker. Let’s see how it all works out come the games. Flores moved Patrick Chung around the Patriots secondary the last few years to confuse offenses. Fitzpatrick will have a similar role.

And we did not hear from Chung's mom. Just freaking tackle, force a fumble, or pick the ball Fitz. Who cares where you play...

That crossed my mind. What prob happened was that he was talking about it to his mom, venting, and she went public. I doubt she knows the difference between a fs and ss.

He kind of threw her under the bus then imo. He said he wished she would have spoken to him first before going socia!. He better get her an early mothers day or birthday present.

You can’t go up against Mommy Wisdom.













He’s right.
