Even though Miami head coach Brian Flores has denied it, the Dolphins are seemingly embracing the tank.

The Ravens open the season with a road game in Miami and recent developments have decreased the chances substantially of a Dolphins win.

Last Friday, the Dolphins named journeyman quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick their starting quarterback. Fitzpatrick, 36, has endured a career filled with big time throws and inconsistent play. The alternative, second-year quarterback Josh Rosen, was the 10th overall pick just two seasons ago.

The Dolphins appear to be content by watching a 36-year old quarterback take the reins instead of figuring out the potential of Rosen, who they acquired from Arizona in exchange for a second-round pick along with a fifth-rounder.

After the startling news, the Dolphins elected to have a trade frenzy over the weekend. The Dolphins traded star left-tackle Laremy Tunsil, wide receiver Kenny Stills to the Texans along with starting linebacker Kiko Alonso to the Saints.

In return, the Dolphins received a plethora of early-round draft picks but didn’t improve the team for 2019.

With Week 1 less than a week away, the Ravens will gear up in Miami to face the Dolphins. A team led by a 36-year old journeyman, without his blindside protection or second-best receiver, and a defense without their signal caller.
