Hangover time...again.

Well that was unpleasant, wasn't it?

The Dolphins last second loss to Cleveland in a 13-10 sleepwalk of a game brought them back down to 6-6, and back down to earth after a glittery win last week.

If it isn't obvious to everyone in Dolphins Land now that the offense of the Dolphins, from the play-calling to the O-line to the talent, is one of the worst in the league, then the blind is surely leading the blind.

The Defense did just about everything they could to give Miami every chance to win the game, and time and time again, they failed miserably.  Davone Bess, Ricky Williams and Ronnie Brown cannot do it all on their own, and the Dolphins won't even give them the requisite reps just in case they can do it on their own.  

When the game is on the line, who should we target...the steady Bess?  The TD scoring Fasano?  The Ground and Pound (and ball protecting) Ricky and Ronnie?  Nah, lets target Roberto Wallace and Marlon Moore over and over again. (For the record, Anthony Armstrong had 6 catches for 97 yards and a TD yesterday for the Redskins, remember him?)

As I said two weeks ago, the front office has raped this team of talent on the offensive side of the ball, as they did the year before on defense.  Think back. They got rid of Andre Goodman, Renaldo Hill, Vonnie Holiday and eventually Matt Roth.  This year it was the year of the Offense, removing a very strong O-line core in Jake Grove, Justin Smiley, and Donald Thomas and possibly placing Nate Garner on IR immaturely.  They got rid of Ted Ginn Jr, Greg Camarillo, and Joey Haynos.  In fact, the team's personnel turnover was pretty huge for the 3rd year of this regime, and it's not looking to be that much less next year.

I'm beginning to argue with myself for the current regime to end.  I know that means starting over, but I think starting over may be better than to continue going down the wrong path altogether.  Sooner better than later.
