I’m writing this on limited sleep, after 2 grueling days, so take it for what it’s worth. I drove about 10 hours in the car yesterday, just in time to make it home for the second half of the Dolphins game. Well, I would’ve rather driven another 10 hours than to watch Tyler Thigpen take another snap from center.
This team is beat up, they have injuries, ALOT of injuries. Other teams have injuries too, but they have enough depth to still put a good team on the field. What happened to the Dolphins last night was an embarrassment. I went back and watched the first half to see why things went wrong. I have been a member of the Tony Sparano fan club, BUT last night his team wasn’t ready. Short week, alot of injuries, I get it. But, you have your 3rd string QB in the game and you hand the ball off 7 times??!?!?!
It’s not like the Bears were up by 3 touchdowns in the first quarter. It was a 6-0 game at halftime. Ronnie -3 carries, Ricky – 3 carries…Not enough Mr. Henning. That’s not enough even if you have Peyton or Tom at QB. How do you control the clock if you can’t run the ball. Look, I know the early runs weren’t working. Well, change it up! Try some runs with fake reverses behind them. Heck, throw in a WildCat or 2! Keep the defense honest. Throw on first down, then run on second.
I’m done venting – I’ll be back tomorrow for a post game recap after I’ve calmed down
