There are so many things to be frustrated about after yesterdays demoralizing loss to the Minnesota Vikings. Pick one, the fact that it only took one quarter of football for the Vikings to beat Miami, the fact that every team that needed to lose to help keep the Phins slim playoff chances alive actually ended up winning, or the fact that Ryan Tannehill had about less than a second to throw the ball.
What we saw yesterday was once again just the overall wild inconsistency of this team. There are times where this offensive line actually looks like they know what they are doing and then there are games like yesterday when it just seems like they forgot how to play football. How does that happen?
You can definitely point to coaching, that would be the easy answer. It might also be the correct one. How do you give up 9 sacks?! Yes, that’s right, 9 sacks. Just a complete and total meltdown from top to bottom. From Gase, to the O-line coach, to the guy who holds a clipboard, everyone involved with how that line played yesterday should be ashamed of themselves.
In fact, the entire team should be ashamed. Because once again, in typical Miami Dolphins fashion, they give their fans false hope that they may actually be able to do something after pulling off that “Miami Miracle” and instead the pull their usual Miami Meltdown.
