Costly penalty that helped spark the Colts comeback.

Also, the front office again, for starting the rebuild one year early

Coach Flores gets mine. Fitzpatrick clearly has a concussion and should not be playing. Rosen should have not only been playing but leading us the rest of the way. Bad decisions by Flores.

I'm assuming this is sarcasm, wanting to not ruin the draft position, right?

Fitzpatrick was not that special in this game. The defense has been looking better and the team is not beating themselves as much as they did earlier in the year. If the defense can continue to hold teams under 20 points a game, Miami can win those games even with Rosen at QB.

I hate these threads.  I am pretty sure I've mentioned it.  I feel like anyone who has played at organized sports at a team level would agree with me.  Rarely, if ever, does a single event (or person) cause a loss.

This being said, I think this theme is interesting.  I don't think Miami is "tanking" this year; this will be an on-going process.

i don't think miami was ever trying to tank .. i think miami was and is prioritizing long term success over short term success .. so if someone offers you a kings ransom for a good player, you say yes thank you and take the 2 1st and a 2nd all the way to the bank

Getting rid of the many of best players on your team at the same time is tanking.

Yeah, and tanking is prioritizing long term success over short term. It's potayto potahto.

Tanking isn't "prioritizing" long term success.  NE "prioritized" long term success when they traded Logan Mankins for draft picks.

Tanking is intentionally sacrificing short term success to move up in the draft via having a worse record.  If you are purposefully trying to improve your own position in the draft, you are tanking.  Period.

The front office is tanking. Flores and the players are not. Which is one of the reasons that Minkah had such a problem being here. How would you like it if your CEO was actively torpedoing your career?

If Flores was informed before accepting the job that that management's plan was to get a better draft position in 2020, he is a willing participant in the tanking process.

Concussion protocol.  It should be done on the very next play.  5 mins later is ridiculous.
