It's exciting that it's finally time to talk actual football and our opening home game of the season. As you probably know or have figured out on your own, not a single analyst around picks the Fins in this game since most think this will be an 0-16 season. I don't like our chances either BUT here's a few reasons we can win this football game- 1) It's hot and humid for tomorrow's game- humidity has always been our 12th man in Joe Robbie stadium. Combine that with how hard Flores has worked our players and we have a physical advantage on the field tomorrow. We will be the better team in the 4th quarter and we'll have to cross our fingers that we're within striking distance for Grant or Drake to save the day. 2) It seems like we traded everyone the past few months, but our defense is largely still in tact other than our defensive line. In that ridiculous Wide-9 defensive linemen had to make plays to stop the run, but our new formation will use speed at LB to stuff holes and create pressure. I don't think we'll be perfect folks BUT there's a chance this won't be a blowout like everyone expects. If we can contain then we have a shot at making this a respectable game. 3) On offense, Miami is going to unveil a quick-strike game plan with lots of runs and short passes. Fitzpatrick is likely in for a tough afternoon, but Baltimore is not as talented as recent years on their D-line and our new quarterback has put in a ton of extra time this season so far. Drake will be the workhorse on Sunday and if we can get him going early, I think we're going to shock some people around the league. 4) We have two big targets at WR this season that can go up and get the ball over defenders. We also have two ridiculously quick options that can create near instant separation on any play. Our receiving corps are highly under-rated and it's not going to take miracles for them to move the football as long as Fitz is delivering quick strikes. That's the key to the ballgame and honestly the season. Folks, this should be a blowout and on paper, we have zero chance of winning. The line will look bad and opportunities will be limited. Yet we all know that if you get Grant or Drake a short pass in space, it's a TD waiting to happen. So that's the game plan- pound the ball, control the clock as much as possible, let our secondary force turnovers and survive until one of our speedsters has a step on someone. Miami wins this game 24-21 with a 4th quarter comeback. It won't be pretty folks and at times we'll be tempted to turn the TV off, but stick around for the full 60 minutes. As they say, it will get worse before it gets better but this is actually a winnable game.
