2015 Dolphins Draft Picks
I like a roller coaster ride as much as the next person, but these Miami Dolphins are starting to make me queesy, no, scratch that, I am queesy. At the risk of an upset stomach, lets go through the season so far. Game one against the Patriots, the Dolphins start the game poorly, by half time it's looking like a Patriot blowout, the coaster is heading down. Then the second half, it's like the teams changed uniforms, Dolphins come out like gang busters and take the game from the Patriots, the coaster is climbing.
Week two, Buffalo, can't stop Sammy Watkins, Buffalo wins it's third game in a row against the Dolphins, coaster is going back down. Week three, Chiefs, Dolphins get rolled over by Chiefs, the downward coaster continues. Week four, Raiders, Dolphins white wash Raiders in merry old England, everything works, coaster is on the upswing, taking us into the by week on a high note.
Week six, Packers, Dolphins play an awful first half, and back down goes the coaster, but wait, the second half starts and the Dolphins are here to play, they make a ferocious comeback, coaster is on it's way back up but the Packers take the game to send the coaster back down. Week seven, Da Bears, Dolphins have a complete dominant performance, coaster on a big climb.Week eight, Jaguars, Dolphins come out flat and have an absolutely awful first half, Blake Bortles is our best weapon..., coaster seems like it might crash, second half is better, we come away with a win, but Bortles remains the best weapon for us in the game, the coaster is on a slight incline.
Anyone else need Dramamine? Which one of these games represents the real Miami Dolphins? The dominating team that beat up on the Raiders and Bears, the team that got clobbered by the Chiefs and loses to the Bills, the Jeckel and Hyde team from the Patriot and Packers games or the team that needed a couple pick sixes to overcome a one win team. Who knows, I think it's a reflection of the lack of leadership, which leaves the Dolphins without an identity, no leadership, no identity.
With the schedule being what it is for the next nine games this team needs to find it's identity, six of the games are against teams with winning records. This up and down roller coaster type of play will not result in enough wins against these teams. So now is the time, with the Chargers coming to town, now is the time, will the real Miami Dolphins please stand up.
