That's awesome man. Cool to hear and to have you.
But its us realists who are haters.
Every year people here get the proverbial junk punch when reality sets in. It seems they have learned nothing and want another.
5 win team. Fitz is replaced by week 3, and Rosen shows his inability to maneuver a pocket, look backside or escape the pocket.
Well hell, now I'm a fan.
As a guy who was supposed to be a writer and hasn't turned into one professionally, I can tell you this:
Writers...write. Don't ever stop if it's what you want to do.
You're getting yourself this worked up over people on a message board being happy and optimistic about future events...
...but they're the ones who are sick?
This is one of the best posts I’ve seen on here in a long time. We can’t focus on 16 games, especially with this team.
We have REALLY struggled in the last 2 regimes (Philhin and Gase) to do the little things right. We have talked this big game about these fast offenses and we lost site of little things, like you said converting 3rd downs and giving the D a breather.
I want to get back to playing complete team football.
One thing Miami has in its favor is a lot of young talent that can emerge. Hopefully this coaching staff is an upgrade and we'll see that happening with a handful of players.
Exactly. That quarterback position is just such a big key. If Rosen begins to emerge a .500 season is possible. I don't know about playoffs, but stranger things have happened in the NFL.
If goodell thinks he can make a buck on it we might end up seeing one.
Lots of questions for sure. That right side of the offensive line looks scary in a bad way.
I don't know who is rushing the quarterback. Not sure who plays defensive end. Have to assume at this point that Wilkins gets a lot of snaps there.
The wildcard for Miami is really Rosen and a few other young players who could emerge. Plus, I agree with you on running the ball. Miami appeared to prioritize run blockers this offseasons with Deiter, Reed, Prince etc.
My first thought
Its not likely, but I would love to see a miracle Superbowl win just for the sheer salt it would generate from the rest of the league.
Back to earth, I think this teams potential might be better, but injuries and lack of depth will likely kneecap them the moment they look anything near "legitimate playoff run."
Many things have the potential to be better this year, and most of it starts with coaching, and fundamentals.
There was really no possible way to build depth, to any degree for the upcomming season.
The good news though, is that "depth" should be a built in given for the following year.
Rome wasn't built in a day, and this team will not be either.
Though I said there was no way Miami was going to come close to the worst record in football to get Tua (Especially if the coaching is as good as I hope they are), their schedule is brutal, so....
If Miami gets 5-7 wins, depending od how Rosen looked, Miami will be going into the draft with huge ammunition to either move to get one of the top QBs or draft away to creating a contender.
If Miami gets 8-10 wins, but miss the playoffs, I will be excited for the following year, will really be happy to see the FA, and draft, and will look forward to the progression of Josh Rosen in 2020.
9-11 wins, in the playoffs, I will spend the rest of the week asking people to pinch as run around in excitement.
12 wins or more, I will be rediculoisly happy for 30 seconds, until I realize no need to be pinched, I am in a dream, guess enjoy it until I wake up.
Some people just don't want anything to change for what I can see. This team is not even close to be ready to make the playoffs. We have a lot of holes. If this team makes the playoffs then this coaching staff is the greatest coaching staff in history.
Dat roster tho
