Im not one to be so naive as to think these trick or gadget plays are always going to work. In fact teams pretty much catch on to them once they are used enough of the time where the defenses have time to prpare for them & I also think by using these type of plays it might show some form of desperation but who cares.
I stated last week that this team needed to come together by any means possible & find a way to win , learn how to win in fact & hopefully they just might have.
Now , honestly I would have liked to see them blow the doors off the Patriots when they were at full strength in a much more conventional way but at this point , this staff did the thing that apparently last years staff could not do - go outside the box & find a way to win.
I can only hope that this will boost confidence & lead to more wins. Now I am not saying that we are a serious contender but what was once thought to be a very strong AFC might just not be.
Indy & NE are beat up , Jacksonville , SD & Pittsburgh may not be as advertised. Looking at the first place teams you still might not be able to separate the contenders from the pretenders & that just might open the door for the Dolphins.
The cream will obviously rise to the top as the season looms on , but if we can somehow manage to hover at the 500 mark we might just be on our way back.
Somehow we need to make these strides now & not wait until some teams get healthy by next year.
