After the Dolphins debacle in the second half of the game and I still want to give Coach Bowles one more chance to see what kind of leadership and toughness he can instill in week 17.
The chance for Bowles is nothing new to South Florida media. Armando Salguero would rather not touch the subject of Bowles as the next coach calling his chance an experiment and that it is time to clean house and start fresh.
I happen to disagree with Armando in that it's easy to blame Bowles for the loss to New England. Frankly, the Dolphins failed in every category from special teams to offense to defense. I pin the loss on the coaches and strength and conditioning coaches who are responsible for this Dolphin team being in shape.
Bottom line, the Dolphins had Brady on the ropes and they danced and pranced around like they one the game. Then the big play that didn't happen defensively was a sure INT by Vontae Davis who instead dropped the ball thus breathing life into the New Englan offense. No way I blame Bowle's for Vontae's misplay. The technique was there.
It's now officially Jets week and it's time to ring in the New Year with a win over the Jets!
I am looking forward to seeing Brian Daboll's game plan in action!
