How bad is the Dolphins franchise? They haven’t qualified for the playoffs since 2016. They haven’t won a playoff game since 2000. They haven’t been to an AFC Championship Game since 1992. They haven’t been to a Super Bowl since 1984. They haven’t won a Super Bowl since 1973. You get the picture. That’s a lot of droughts. If you’re a Miami Dolphins fan, you have two choices. You can either continue the insanity and believe the next coach will bring the team back to glory or you can return to normality and find something better to do on Sunday afternoons.
Einstein defined insanity as the act of doing the same thing over and over again and hoping for a different result. That is exactly what it’s like to be a Miami Dolphins fan. It’s complete insanity. Add Brian Flores to the graveyard of coaches since Don Shula. I’m not saying Flores was a great coach. But he certainly wasn’t terrible nor did he deserve to get fired. Flores managed to lead the Dolphins to their first back-to-back winning seasons since 2000 and 2001. So what’s his reward? He gets a pink slip from owner Stephen Ross.
