    Good move for them ... Fitz - a draft pick and one of the other 2 sleds.

    They can still easily tank ... by barely losing it will look okay.

    Bingo. If this was about finding a good match and situation there is no way Flores would have ended up in Miami. But unless he is a total disaster this year he will get at least a second year out of it and will make most probably 25-35x the amount he would have made as a DC here in a year.

    He essentially is set for life no matter what.

    Which is the first game? Regardless, first game over, second game wildcat. So under.

    This is why I said Flores was dumb for taking the Miami job. Sure he'll get 10x the money and finally be a HC, but how does this help in the long run? How many HC's in Miami have gone on to bigger and better gigs?

    Why not just have kept Tannehill one more year?

    This means Fitz gets to add to his already-impressive helmet collection!

    The good news is that much like losing in Pittsburgh (under TB12), we tend to go to the SB the years we lose in Miami, too.

    It’s a win/win, even when we lose. ;)

    The little midget being in the draft opens things up a bit, as far as QB options this draft year. Tannehill's part of the problem. That part of the problem is now solved. Fitzpicksix is just there to either serve as the bandaid or the transition guy, depending upon how the Dolphins work the QB spot beyond him.

    Him being from Harvard is the ultimate irony. In the NFL, he ends up playing for the Bills, Jets, and Dolphins but not the team located in Boston.

    Kap might win them a couple games. Fitz is good for getting that #1 pick, especially since he'll probably go down with an injury a couple games in.

    Why? If I were them, I'd rather tank and get that #1 pick next year to use on a quarterback. Sure, they might get a good quarterback at #13 (I believe that's where they're picking). But why not try for a great quarterback in a year?

    In his illustrious career Fitz has thrown 190 TD's and 148 int's..

    Not sure how many TD's he has thrown against the Pats, but it seems like quite a few..

    Fitzpatrick also holds the distinction of throwing the most TD passes in a season for the Jets (31) in 2015.... then in 2016 he threw 12 TD's and was intercepted 17 times.. which pretty much sums up his NFL career.

    Dolphins will beat us and start 3-0 then lose to Jets and Bills immediately after and finish 5-11.
