It is no secret that the 2019 season has been a struggle for the Dolphins so far. They currently have a 0-5 record and have lost by an average of 27.6 points. Their 17-16 loss to the Washington Redskins is the closest that they have come to victory but they fell short to a team that was also winless entering their matchup.
The message that Flores had for his team following that disappointing to the Redskins closely resembles was positive in nature. A failed two-point conversion at the end of the game proved to be the difference in the contest.
“We stay the course, we’ll continue with our process, which I think has been better,” Flores said, via the team’s official website.
The expectation for both sides when Flores signed a five-year contract to take the head coaching job with the Dolphins was that it was going to be a real process. There is only so much that someone can do with a team that is deprived of talent, especially when they decide to trade key contributors for future assets.
While the expectation is that Flores will remain as the head coach in 2020 despite such a poor start to the season, some have speculated that it’s because the team will be tanking next season too. It remains to be seen what the long-term plans for the Dolphins are but even with a potential 0-16 finish, expect to see Flores remain at the helm.
