Monday Night Football! Dolphins go prime time again! Prime Time has been nothing less than brutal for our “Not Ready for Prime Time Players”.
vs Saints in London – LOSS 20-0
vs Ravens TNF – LOSS 40-0
vs Panthers MNF – LOSS 45-21
So basically, 3 games in prime time, and we were outscored 105-21. That’s unbelievably hideous. I don’t know what to expect from our Dolphins after we drubbed the Broncos senseless on Sunday 35-9. Will that be the team that shows up on Monday night, or is it the NRFPTP troop? I wish I could tell you, but I just haven’t a clue as to what’s going to happen. If I’m being honest, I’m not really expecting us to be in this game, I just can’t imagine we’re going to put it all together against an NFL team like the Patriots who is just methodically dismantling every team they play. Even on a day where QB Tom Brady has a poor game, they win easily. They are a tough beat at 10-2, they really are. On the other hand, we usually give them one tough game per year, so maybe this is it.
Well, Gronk did us a favor last week when he got all frustrated that the Patriots didn’t get a call for once on what he thought was defensive holding at the least, or even pass interference on Bills DB Tre’Davious White, so Gronk took matters upon himself to dish out judgement, and after doing a whiny little dance about not getting the call, he promptly turned around, and dove on top of White who was already face down on the sidelines, and delivered a vicious forearm shiver to his helmet. Gronk should probably be missing a few games for that, but he happens to play for the Patriots, so . . .
I’d love to see Drake have another strong game, and I would really love to see Devante Parker have a freaking big game for once! If Parker does nothing, I’d sit his ass and start Leonte Carroo III at least for one game, while the embarrassed Parker assumes the bench role Carroo III currently owns. Who knows, maybe the kid will finally show us why we traded up for him. I’d also love to see the defense play like they did last week, and make some big plays and turn the Pats over a few times.
Anyway, enjoy the game, and hope for the best!
