Today the Miami Dolphins trounced the New England Patriots 38-13 using a radical playbook which made the New England defense look lost. The defense gave up 461 yards of total offense, 216 of which on the ground to the combo of Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams. Miami coach Tony Soprano… I mean, Tony Sparano won his first NFL win as a coach and ended a 21 game win streak.
Last week, the situation at Quarterback and our season looked much brighter. This stinker certainly shakes things up. The blame shouldn’t fall on Cassel alone. I would like to look at this as a statistical outlier, the occasional stinker that any sports team will give up. Look at baseball where even the best teams will lose two fifths of their games. The Red Sox lose bad games all the time. But the initial reaction after Tom Brady’s season-ending injury in week one seems that much more validated now.
