Hulk back. Hulk angry once again. I mean Hulk always angry especially at new job that makes it hard for Hulk to write as much as he would like. But really for the most part Hulk had been pretty optimistic this off season and Hulk looking forward to start of season and then first week ugly win make Hulk sweat but Hulk felt road win on week 1 always good thing and the team will shape up. Then road loss week 2 to lowly Jags and Hulk start getting angry. But Hulk says no way team come out flat against the toe suckers but then Hulk watch team fall flat on its face in one of worst games Hulk watch since the Titans debacle a couple of years back and you know what happens when Hulk gets angry. So here is what makes Hulk angry:
Hulk angry that coach Philbin still have job. Year in and year out coach Philbin manage to have team under perform in key games, especially against division foes. But owner loyal to a fault. He no fire the queasy coach, why? Hulk don’t know! It’s not like we have a track record of success with coach Joe. We are now into year 4 of Philbin and we really see nothing different about Phins.
Hulk angry that front office do nothing to fix offensive line in off season. Once again our offense line is truly offensive. We can’t pass block and we can’t run block. Our big off season acquisition was to wait to the 4th round to draft somebody and bring in a couple of journeymen linemen who really were no different than the journeymen we had on the roster. So guess what the result is. Our best OT is still hurt, we have back up OT that is not good and got hurt himself as well. Our 2 starting guards are among the lowest rated guards by PFF and offense looks like it stepped in quicksand as a result.
Hulk angry at Walt Aikens. Here is kid who has all the raw talent to be a monster in his own right. But kid don’t know how to cover receiver going deep down field. Aikens make Hulk long for Louis Delmas and Hulk no like Louis Delmas but he better than Mistaikens.
Hulk angry at Mike Tannenbaum. He was man who almost ruined Jets by making dumb contracts to players who underperform. He come to Miami and now doing same thing. Hulk angry that we have talent shortage at key positions along OL and at linebacker but we will have no cap space to do anything about that because we tied up too much money to too few players. Hulk fear this team will now be in cap hell with no way out.
All those things make Hulk angry but you know what make Hulk angrier than anything else? Himself. Hulk angry at Hulk because Hulk got fooled or suckered in by this supposed optimism coming from Davie. Hulk believed that things would be different this year because we got Suh. He would make us tougher, this team won’t be so soft anymore. This team will have a mean streak to it and play like that. Hulk really believed all that and that is what makes Hulk mad because Hulk was sold a lie. This team is just as soft as Jonathan’s Martin’s fragile ego ready to crumble at the first sign of adversity, throw it’s lunch tray down in the middle of the field and stomp off to go call mommy. No one on team has intestinal fortitude. No one on team make big play when it matters. No one play with urgency. All the things that were supposed to be different this year. Hulk angry at himself for believing that it actually would be. Now Hulk just angry that he has to start looking forward to next year and it is still September.
