For much of their preseason debut, the Miami Dolphins looked as sloppy as the surface of Sun Life Stadium.
As a monsoon rushed down over Miami on Saturday night, the Dolphins starters failed to navigate through the slushy quagmire of a field, leaving its second and third unit players to pick up the wreckage and inch out a 10-7 victory over the Tampa Bay Bucs.
But, as bad as the starters looked on Saturday, there's good news, Dolfans.
You can relax.
It's the preseason. The games don't count and players are shaking off rust.
There's cause to be concerned, of course, but this team still has almost an entire month to sort through its issues and shortcomings.
Still, there was plenty to be taken out of Saturday's game, some good, and some bad.
Stay confident, Dolfans, stay confident.
