Just thought I'd post this for the sake of mental health - my own and anyone else's who might feel the same way... The changes brought to the Dolphins FO, coaching staff and personnel staff might be the biggest changes in a good while. Yes we've had changes before, even not too long ago, but this time, especially with Ross hinting at a re-building, it feels especially significant. Of course, the work coaches do, especially less visible ones, is less accessible to us. Personnel work even more so. So we see hear about the name changes, but we don't expect to physically see anything, so the change feels smoother, easier. Players, though, are the guys we see on the field week in and week out. We can review film, check out stats, we can watch them do what they do. We can love/like/hate them. When players get cut, when new ones get brought in it feels a whole lot more significant. It feels like it will hurt more. What we know is changing, and that which we don't know scares us. Soon enough we'll start to see changes this year. Maybe some major, major changes. The 2019 Dolphins may not look anything like the Dolphins from the past few years. Quite a few us will cheer at the thought of it. Still, change can be scary, especially when you watch it happen. If you like control and micromanagement, and you're interested in all the possibilities then you might love it. If you're not, though, or you're not quite sure what all the details mean, then it might be something like watching a builder remodel your house starting with a demolition job. Seeing your house get knocked down, in whole or part, generally doesn't feel good, unless you hated it. It is, however, an important part of building something new. If you're not the sort of person who wants to watch that, then my recommendation it, focus on what's coming, not the demolition job. Know that something new is being built, surrender yourself to that, and set your heart on seeing the new thing that will be. Wait to see what the 2019 Dolphins actually look like rather worrying about what they were or might be. And remember that the process will take longer than one season to complete, maybe 2 maybe 3 seasons, so maybe the front porch, roof, and living room get destroyed this off-season and the garden gets ripped up. Then only the basic framework gets rebuilt with no decoration. Try to enjoy what there is, look at the newness, rather than what's missing or ugly. The architect/builders are going to need time and they're going to need to be able to knock things down and make a mess. Let's give them that time. Maybe even enjoy the chaos a bit. We're going to be living in the spare room for a while. Let's just roll with it.
