Those who did not think that today's game was a big deal...tell me it was not important for Tannehill to have a game like that? Tell me YOU do not feel better about your Fins.
I am impressed with the effort and how they played through injuries as well. I thought we would win UGLY...nope. Impressive win in the end. Wins are tough to come by in the NFL. Very happy right now...for Tannehill and Philbin and yes, Jeff Ireland.
Still wasn't huge. That was marginal football being played. It's great that Tannehill had the chance to play like that against a ridiculously bad D, but the level of competition is so poor it doesn't mean much moving forward. There is always 1 or 2 bottom feeders every year who are dramatically worse than the rest of the league. Last year it was the colts. This year it's kc and jax. I already knew the Dolphins weren't the worst team in the league so what exactly was gained by this game?
tannehill played well. he may have had four td passes if not for dropped balls.
what an effort by that defense to hold them I believe three seperate times inside the 20 yard line, for NO points... good team win.
I was all for losses last season because we had no QB and everyone knew the head coach was a goner. But when you are hoping to build on something with your rookie QB and rookie HC, a win like this gives you reason for hope.
Now I am become coach, the destroyer of teams.
Even if we'd lost it would have been something of an unfortunate fluke because, though we're not a good team, we are a better team than they are especially when they're ravaged by injury. We've already had bad losses this year back when it actually mattered. They beat TEN who we lost to. Whatever happened in this irrelevant game should not dictate our perception of this team or the decisions we make moving forward.
