Might as well start looking forward to the draft. Seriously.
The egg the Fins laid last night against the Bears is still dripping today. The team is not going to the playoffs, much less the Super Bowl.
Call me a pessimist if you must. I'd rather be called a realist.
Consider: The Dolphins have the backup to the backup quarterback playing.
They played with the backup to the backup at center.
Their running backs can't run very well. (At least last night). 11 yards between Ricky and Ronnie. Are you kidding me?
Their diva wide receiver throws better than he catches. (His aim was pretty good at Jay Cutler).
Now, he's injured too.
Their best offensive lineman is playing hurt. The rest of the offensive line is well, offensive.
The defense continues to drop interceptions. And can't get off the field on third down.
Some of the players seem to be playing without passion. Without heart.
Where are the leaders? Who will step up? Too bad Jake Scott and Bill Stanfill couldn't suit up.
I hope I'm wrong. But it sure looks like the season is over.
