So here we are at the end of another disappointing Miami Dolphins season. We have (yet again) less wins than losses, we have no direction at quarterback, and we do not know who our next head coach will be.
Thankfully, all is not lost just yet. We can still make this season partially successful. All the Dolphins need to do is win at home this Sunday against the Jets, and we can have something to be happy about going into the offseason.
Just think about it. The Dolphins could really do some damage to the Jets if they win Sunday. A win would damage the Jets in a few different ways. The most obvious way is that they would eliminate them from the playoffs, but that wouldn't even be the worst thing that happened to New York. A lot of people have started to question whether Mark Sanchez is a franchise quarterback, and those questions would only be amplified if he was unable to make the playoffs. Think of all of the uncertainty that the Jets would have at the QB position this offseason if they don't make the playoffs. It would be great.
But, my favorite reason for why I want Miami to hand it to the Jets this weekend is Rex Ryan. Ryan has finally "lost his Bravado", and what better way to make the Jets ownership question him even more than to prevent him from making the playoffs? I would love nothing more than the Dolphins being the team that hands Rex Ryan his last loss before being he is fired, which I believe is a real possibility.
I want the Dolphins to come into this game with a (at one time) backup quarterback, an apparently "washed up" running back, and an interim head coach and beat the snot out of the Jets and their so called golden boy quarterback and loud mouth coach.
I want to end this season on a high note for once. I want to be able to say that we knocked the Jets out of the playoffs. A friend of mine is a Bengals fan, so I want his team to make the playoffs as a result. A Dolphin win will be a win-win for all of us, so let's hope Miami can get one.
And one last note: get this win for Jason Taylor, so he can officially be a Dolphin forever. His last win in the Dolphins-Jets matchup should not be as a Jet beating the Dolphins. It should be as a Dolphin beating the Jets and eliminating them from the playoffs.
Thanks for stopping by, and let me know your thoughts.
