No, that isn't the contention, apparently. The contention is that the Dolphins' surroundings were a tremendous ball-and-chain on him, and so the Dolphins' must've been especially poor 2012-2018. All he needed was the roughly average surroundings he had in Tennessee in 2019 and he'd blossom. It can't be that the Dolphins' surroundings were average and the ones in Tennessee were exceptionally good -- that's impossible because lots of people on a message board said so, and people on a message board are never wrong, especially when lots of them agree about something. Message board consensus = reality.
