So, Miami Dolphins fans, there's good news and bad news.
First, the good news: The preseason is over.
Now, the bad news: We have to watch this team play 16 more games.
After Wednesday night's embarrassing 13-30 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, it's nearly impossible to conjure any scenario in which this Dolphins team succeeds in 2012. Generally, I try not to overreact to anything that happens in the preseason, but this game—combined with the preseason as a whole—was just miserable.
The Dolphins were undisciplined, inefficient and incompetent. For starters, they committed 10 penalties for 126 yards and converted on just three of 13 third downs. More depressingly, they yielded 238 rushing yards. No, not to DeMarco Murray or Felix Jones, but to Lance Dunbar, Jamize Olawale and Phillip Tanner.
This week's Hard Knocks is going to be so depressing; I might not even watch it.
All this being said, there were a few scattered glimmers of light. They were just dwarfed by the team's collective failure.
Anyway, here are the winners and losers from Miami's preseason finale.
I'm going to go throw up now.
