At this point, it’s hard to argue. It’s also hard to imagine how it would help.

According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, the Dolphins are considering starting quarterback Josh Rosen next week against the Cowboys, after yet another horrible performance by Ryan Fitzpatrick.

In the 43-0 loss to the Patriots, Fitzpatrick threw three interceptions, including a pair of pick-sixes in a five-play span. He completed 11-of-21 passes for 89 yards, for a passer rating of 23.8. He was sacked four times.

They’ve scored 10 points in two games.

In the moments after the game, coach Brian Flores said “Right now, Ryan is still the starter.” But that appears to be a temporary condition, even if it lasts another week.

  1. I get it, Fitz has been awful. But what happens when you start Rosen and he’s equally as terrible? Then what?

  2. poor guy. his career has probably had the worst start in recent 1st round pick QB history in terms of the teams and directions of those teams he has been on.

  3. Rosen has come in relief and done exactly the same. A switch needs to be made for sure, I just don’t think Dolphins fans should expect an improvement.

    Going with the hot hand is fine, but going with the not-quite-as-cold hand is the worst case scenario.

    It is going to be a long year for ‘fins fans but hang in there. Flo is a good coach and will get it turned around though it may take a few seasons to bolster the roster.

  5. The first thing that Miami needs to understand is: “YOU DON’T HAVE TO TANK NOW” because Miami has enough picks to move into any position that they need too to get anyone that they want REGARDLES of their record.
    So Flores should add a few needed players on a one year deal and try to WIN! And Start Josh Rosen PLEASE! Bring in another veteran QB and release Fitzpatrick. This defense is much more talented than anyone imagined; even without Reshad Jones. This team can win NOW and make the post season!

  6. Sure, start Rosen, but if you think Ryan Fitzpatrick is the reason that the Dolphins stink (or even that his stats are as bad as they are), then you haven’t been paying attention.

    Same thing that is happening now? If it ain’t working make the change. If it still ain’t working….cry. And then get the first pick.

    Not that it will change anything on this team. This is a sad state for one of the most storied franchises in NFL history.

    Then you Draft Tua next year and Trevor in 2021 and let them compete for the starting job

  9. This is disgusting. So, what’s the plan? Strip the team of ANY talent, draft a QB in the next couple years then watch as he is abused his first three years in the league because of lack of talent? By the time you rebuild the roster to semblance of an NFL team, your QB is toast. Ask David Carr. This is not the NBA. One player does not turn a team around. Flores is clueless and over his head. Maybe he just doesn’t understand that rebuilding is one thing, but ruining a team is another. Doesn’t this clown get that he WON’t be around by the time this team is slightly competitive. I hated the hire when it happened and hate it even more now. Ross needs to sell the team.

  10. “poor guy. his career has probably had the worst start in recent 1st round pick QB history in terms of the teams and directions of those teams he has been on.”

    Google Archie Manning

  11. Well at least its better than 7-9, 8-8, 9-7 seasons and going nowhere. They’re copying the NBA model…You have to be really awful to get the best talent in the collegiate draft. That’s just the reality here. Fitzpatrick knew what he was walking into. He just wanted that one last great paycheck. Everyone knows he’s garbage, those good numbers at the start of last year in Tampa was an aberration.

  12. Starting Rosen isnt about winning now. Its about getting him playing time and experience. They gave up a 2nd rounder for him they want to see if theres something there. He made some nice throws in garbage time. Theres nothing to lose by starting him.

  13. Wow! Dakota is starting to have a season like Cam Cheating where he pads his stats playing against losing teams. And then when a competent defense appears, the rest of the season was simply a mirage.
