I have been reading a lot of these preseason predictions, and no doubt, do the prognosticators recognize the talent overhaul the last few seasons. However, I know it is easy based on prior years to predict Miami will be mediocre again, and even more surprised that these prognosticators do not think we can build on last year's success. So I am left wondering, it can't be a lack of talent right? Because as a whole, we make up for the positions or units we may lack. So what is it? I have to think it is killer instinct. It is the "IT" factor. Frankly, I don't know if we have it. I don't know if Tannehill has the ice water in his veins to put the game away when given the opportunity, or the offensive line with the key block late in a game to continue a drive, or the pass rush needed to put a team out of field goal range late or worse yet, stopping the run on third and short. I know Gase is trying to instill this in them. But I don't know if this is player-related, coach-aided (by calling certain plays) or do we lack this toughness on the roster. I need to see a cockiness or brashness to know we have turned the corner from a fluffy team to a rugged/beat you down in the 4th quarter team. I also need it to be complimented with play calling on both sides. I don't know if we can recognize this at camp next week. However, someone or something has to turn this culture around. Jarvis and Suh are sick of losing to the Pats. But talent alone won't beat them. Someone has to suck the wind out of them, early or late in a game to make a statement. It has to be a back-breaking play, a block, or a gutsy call. Camp is next week, and I have never anticipated a season like this in some 20 years. The talent in house maybe the best overall talent we ever have for this era. Next year you never know what you lose or gain with free agency. I also have been searching as to why we haven't signed Jarvis. And I have concluded that I think Miami wants to make him earn it even more, and if that means more money next year because of a phenomenal year, that's a gamble they want to take. A hungry Jarvis, combined with the offseason and injured players back is the exact formula I think this front office wants. I think it is all a formula and Jarvis (X) plus all the additions (Y) and coaching (Z), is the formulation they feel puts them in the best position to win. It sounds selfish and insane, but I think they believe they get more out X+Y+Z than if they tinkered with any variable. But what do I know?
