Dolphins QB Josh Rosen will ‘try to provide that spark’ Miami needs
The Miami Dolphins are 0-2 with Ryan Fitzpatrick as the starter and have put up ten points to 102 in that span. Now that Josh Rosen is the starting quarterback, that trend could change, as he’ll try to provide that spark Miami desperately needs.
“Obviously right now we need a spark, I’m going to try to provide that spark,” said Rosen on Friday, per ESPN’s Cameron Wolfe.
While Rosen wants to provide that spark, Miami may want to pour water over it and cool the team down. Though the Dolphins haven’t (and won’t) say they are tanking, they quite obviously are. Nobody gets handed five first-round picks over two years; the Dolphins earned that by trading away their best players and may continue doing so.
That’s alarming news for a quarterback wanting to not only get his team going but his career too. Rosen will be without a lot of weapons he thought he had when the Dolphins first trade for him; on offense, left tackle Laremy Tunsil and wide receiver Kenny Stills are gone, on defense, more.
For the second straight year, Rosen will be handed the starting job after the incumbent fell on his face. For the second consecutive year, he’ll play with the NFL’s worst supporting casts; that does not bode well for the 2018 No. 10 overall pick.
Rosen will get his first start for the Dolphins on Sunday when his team travels to Dallas to face the 2-0 Cowboys. Miami enters the game as 22-point underdogs after losing by 43 to the New England Patriots the week before.
