Is this a sarcastic comment because there's no way in hell they should of rejected Tunsil trade if you're rebuilding team.

Because Tunsil is so old?

The problem is now that they traded almost all their talent on O, and are completely throwing Rosen in the deep end. I would have wanted to see him with Tunsil and Stills, but what do you expect to see now? If the goal is to see a young QB struggle with the worst supporting cast in the league then sure throw Rosen in there.

So Stills and Tunsil make Miami have a noticeably stronger supporting cast?

The OL was going to be trash with or without Tunsil and Stills isn't a game-changing receiver. Those comments were made after those players were traded.

Road game as a 22 point underdog. No problem. 

BTW, is this the first week in NFL history with 2 teams (also New England) favored by more than 20 points? Probably not. But I'm not sure I remember another example. 

I haven't been watching the Dolphins games but it seemed like Fitzpatrick was doing a swell job toward that #1 overall pick. That's the only reason I oppose this.

People gonna complain whatever they do

Not true at all.

They trade a 2nd rounder for Josh Rosen - okay so they must believe he's the future, and they have some young pieces around him like Laremy Tunsil to help build that future.

Dolphins name Ryan Fitzpatrick starter, trade away Tunsil and Kenny Still and Minkah Fitzpatrick

NOW it's a dumb decision because they're tanking for a QB anyways.

Dolphins lose 2 games in which their offense gets pummeled on the OL and their defense is historically bad, but name Josh Rosen starter anyways

Yeah that's an objectively bad decision because now you're tanking and starting Rosen? Either you believed in him before or not, and trading away a piece like Tunsil while tanking so obviously indicates you don't think Rosen is the future, or the present.

Those comments were relevant when the Dolphins still had good pieces on offense. They traded those away and now there's nothing left. What can you honestly hope to gain by starting Rosen at this point?

I believe it is the 2nd time. I think there have only been like 13ish times in nfl history a team has been favored more than 20 pts.

or maybe that was on the road, idk

You don't think his supporting cast is noticeably worse now?

@ET80 is still available if they’re just tanking anyways. Might as well get a personality out there, sell some jerseys.

 

Miami called. I let it go to VM. I got too much pride for a tank job.

They probably just want to see if there's really anything there on Rosen now before they draft Tua.

Kinda hard to really find that out if your using what amounts to a JV Team vs NFL opponetts? Just saying!!

Tunsil isn't old and was definitely in Miami's long term plans but ultimately the Texans offered more value than the Dolphions could realistically refuse, especially since Tunsil will have to be extended soon.
