SO, our disappointing season continues as we host the hapless Denver Broncos, who oddly enough, are in worse shape than our Dolphins at 3-8. This game is meaningless for us the fans, but to players, the games still matter, because they get paid, and they have a job to do, and for some, they are looking to make a positive impression on the coaches to earn a spot on the roster. In the big picture, it would probably be better for us to lose out, and finish the season 4-12, and end up with a top 5 pick, but Coach Gase and probably the majority of the players don’t want to see that.
I’m not even sure what to expect from our team this week. Denver is hurting in the secondary with the 1 game suspension of Aqib Talib, so one might think Devante Parker should feast. The reality is, even with Jay Cutler at QB, who loves Parker, they just can’t seem to have a big game together. His best game this season was probably game 1 against the Chargers where he caught 4 passes for 85 yards, but he scored his ONLY TD in Week 2 in the final second of a 20-6 loss against the Jets. Remember before the season all the talk about what a great year Parker is going to have, he was tearing it up in training camp, practice and even the preseason? BLAH BLAH BLAH, he’s completely underperformed again, along with the rest of the team. Broken record.
Some here will be rooting for a loss, some for a win, and others don’t even care anymore and won’t bother to watch. I’ll watch, I have to, but if it wasn’t for FF, I might find other things to do on Sundays at this point. I think when I sit down to watch, I just hope I can see something that gives me hope that we can be a good team. Show me some good play in all phases and beat the Broncos 34-3. I’d rather lose than have us win a slopfest 13-10 or something, and I really mean that. That win, to me at least is meaningless. If we’re going to win, at least give us something to watch.
