Originally after the Rosen trade I said he must start immediately to make the trade worth it and to evaluate Rosen, but the schedule actually sets up quite nicely to allow him to sit a few games behind Fitzpatrick and take over after the bye.
The first 4 games are still brutal with the Ravens, Pats, Cowboys and Chargers. All teams with stout defenses and good QBs.
The pass rush on these teams should dismantle the Dolphins OL.
But it eases up a little after the bye. A home game against the Redskins would be an ideal game for the Rosen debut as it would pit him against a comparably talented team with a rookie QB.
I still don’t think the draft changes the outlook much about the season since the team is still outmatched by the opponents, but might mean a 2-3 game swing from what I originally predicted.
I see a 6 win team here...
