Why in the hell didn't the Dolphins kick the XP to tie it up? Did they attempt a 2 pointer and fail? You're 0-6...you do whatever you need to give you the best shot to win the game. That means you kick the XP and send it to OT. EVERYONE on Miami's coaching staff needs to be fired tomorrow!!


You really think they wanted to win?

Not only that, but to say you should go for tie because you're winless is dumb.

He dropped the pass on the 2-pt conversion. Based on the decisions WAS was making, i bet they would have let him in for the score if he did catch it.

When you're 0-6, you do whatever you need to do to give yourself the best chance to win. Sure, if you convert the 2 pointer, you look like a genius. But again...you're 0-6 for a reason...because you kinda suck!! So you kick it, tie it up, and take your chances in overtime.

Even if they weren't trying to get the 1st overall pick, your reasoning sucks. Playing conservatively because you're winless is like friging for chastity.

Or because he sucks and they had a chance to win today.

Only reason that makes since is they want to lose?

Washington ends up being the only NFC East team to win this week.

My Phins can't even keep their word. Last week on WED "Rosen is our starter for ROS" proceeds to pull him for Fitzy.....LOL

We can't even properly evaluate ROSEN due to how bad this team is. He has now been on 2 of the worst teams in the last 2 years. His career might go the way of Osweiler if this keeps up....Yikes!

If I were Rosen I wan't out and fast to try and salvage what's left of a shot at being a starting QB in this league.

Did you see Rosen play yesterday?
I didn't but the numbers were not so good. Especially against a Redskins team.

Fitz came in and did what Fitz does - ball out and come up short in the end.

For a brief moment, my 4 team parlay was saved until the Chargers broke my heart.

I did....then we undid what Fitzy did by going FTW! I agree on the call by the way, when you're a bad team you go for the win.


WOW...chargers loosing to an UDFA 3rd string QB at home broke my heart too I started EKELER & Mike Williams & JUJU I think I got a combined 15 points lol!

This X10000 Why on earth are you throwing it to Drake. At the very least if you wait 3 more seconds the CB covering Parker rushed in, he was open and could have floated it to him. Bad play design and bad call overall.

ha!

yeah, I don't know about that. There had to be a better "go to" play.

I suspect there was which is why they went with this playcall. :wink:
