VIP On the Mark | We know the English like Fish and Chips, but if they ate a batch of what was served up at Wembley this past Sunday, they’d throw up. When the Miami Dolphins can serve up a pair of flat out stinkers against the Jets and Saints, it’s time to change the recipe.
We know the English like Fish and Chips, but if they ate a batch of what was served up at Wembley this past Sunday, they’d throw up.
When the Miami Dolphins can serve up a pair of flat out stinkers against the Jets and Saints, it’s time to change the recipe. Perhaps the remedy is a long awaited home game after having to deal with a West Coast trip, Hurricane Irma and being sentenced to London.
Jay Cutler is more like Veal. Maybe he should have stayed retired. Bears fans are laughing. New Orleans was dead last in the NFL last year in pass defense. Last Sunday they pitched a shutout because the Dolphins didn’t have a pass designed to travel more than 10 yards.
Miami’s leading rusher Jay Ajayi is a London native. He had back-to-back 200 yard games a year ago. In his return home he couldn’t stay on the field. If you had the guts to watch the entire carnage on CBS, it had to be either because there was a wager on the Saints, or the UNDER was in play.
The NFL is having enough problems keeping its shield clean with all the political stands going on. The league sure as heck doesn’t need for the product itself to look like garbage – the term Miami coach Adam Gase used last week at the Meadowlands to describe the 20-6 loss to the Jets. This 20-0 debacle to the Saints was downright sewage.
This will certainly be an interesting week in South Beach when the Tennessee Titans bring their power game to a storm torn area. We will anxiously await who’s on the Fish roster by game time. Check the waiver wire for anyone named Burger, Franks or Fries.
