2015 Dolphins Draft Picks
Dan Campbell says we're about to see the sleeping giant awakened. I'm so ready for that; however, the serious part of me understands that is part of the hyperbole he needs to use to motivate the team. Reasonable expectations for Campbell and company would be a competitve team that plays hard, irrespective of the record at the end of the season. The faithful can hang their hats on watching a new coaching staff and players come together. It would be important for him to start winning more than he's losing at the end of the season if he's going to keep his job. I'm already sick of reading the articles about his replacement. Didn't be send Todd Bowles packing in favor of Philbin? This once-storied franchise is in full ruin. It is like the inner city infrastructure of Detroit..... rubble. It just doesn't need a tweak. It needs a complete engine overhaul. Ross has brought this here. He took us from the slippery slope of decline and plunged us directly in the abyss of horrible football. After the unenthusiastic play against Buffalo, I had already lost interest. I began spending my Sundays doing something productive. At least now, I can enjoy watching again. How long that lasts depends on how hard this team plays for their new coach.
At the beginning of the season you would've marked this as an easy win. Now, @Tennessee, I'm not predicting a win. I think its too much to ask an interim HC to pull off given he had to fire his DC as well. If Dan were a defensive coach, i'd be a little more optimistic about short term success. We now have a DB coach who might be over his head as DC. You never know, people surprise but all indications are this is going to be a loss. Here's what my gut is saying. This won't be a close game. Its gonig to be either really good, or really, really bad. This team has the talent to do their jobs and win despite the circumstances; however, that's just it.... on the flight to London there's some clown walking around laughing, joking and other players seemed like they were heading to the beach....not a football game where they're 1-2 coming off one of the most embarrassing losses in a while. I would've expected a somber mood. One of more seriousness. Campbell has his work cut out just with changing the attitudes on this team. If he can get that turned around, he still has to figure out how to turn it into a winner. Imagine walking into a garage with a high end car sitting their in pieces. Completely dismantled, each piece dumped in one big pile. Now imagine you're told you have to be ready to race in two weeks and btw, we just fired the body and frame guy. I think you get it. With that said, If Dan pulls off the unthinkable this season and manages a miracle turnaround..... it might be worthy of Dan the Man status.
