First trip to Buffalo - bringing the wife to the game- any suggestions? Should i wear my Marino Jersey or will I get the crap kicked out of me?
as a Miami fan who has watched every snap for the Phins (at least twice) this season, I wanted to throw out a quick break down of the Phin's chances this week against the division rival Bills.
Coaching- not sure how you guys feel about Chan Gailey, but the Phins right now are a coaching mess. With Todd Bowles taking the helm after the firing of Coach Sparano earlier this week, the Miami Dolphins are going to have difficulty making the adjustment in 5 days time. When you have guys like Daniel Thomas coming out and saying that Bowles has had little interaction with the offense at all this year, your team is basically as ready to play cohesively as they were week 1 of the preseason. Advantage Bills.
Offense- I dont think I am breaking any news here, but the play of Ryan Fitzpatrick (who, admittedly, I am a fan of and would rather have on my team rather than Henne/Moore/Losman) has clearly not lived up to the expectation the team had for him prior to signing him long term. Fitz has shown that he can have huge games, make smart decisions, and put the team in position to win- the challenge has been sustaining that type of performance over the length of a season. Matt Moore, who has been more than a serviceable backup for the Phins, is banged up and even if he does get the start, I anticipate an early exit from the game re-aggravating the neck/head injury. more than likely, JP Losman (your scraps) will be making an appearance in Buffalo... and the moment he does the Phins dont have a chance. Advantage Bills.
Defense - I dont know all that much about the Bills D, other than we put up 35 on you guys a month ago. the Dolphins D didnt do much better last week, getting a 26 spot in basically one quarter hung on them by the Eagles. for no other reason than i need to give my boys some love, Advantage Dolphins.
Prediction - Not going to be the best game to watch, but no worries cause I will be pounding brewskis theyre going out of style. Bills win it in a stinker - 13 - 6
