More Humiliation On The Table For Brent Grimes

One of the great laughs in the recent bumbling history of the Miami Dolphins came last year.

The Miami Herald set out to commemerate the 50th anniversary of the storied Dolphins franchise.

For the youngsters unaware, Miami was a true powerhouse team of the 1970s, compiling a whopping 104-39 record (1970-1979) with two Super Bowl victories, a Super Bowl loss and seven playoff appearances.

Then, from 1980 to 2000, the Dolphins had just one losing season. ONE!!!!!

It’s been rather ugly from there, but the point is Miami has a ton of great players in its history.

Back to the Herald. It released a 50 greatest Dolphins of all-time as the 2015 season closed. And you know who made the list? Bucs cornerback Brent Grimes.

Then just a handful of weeks later, it became clear that Grimes and his wife Miko wanted nothing to do with the team and were orchestrating a social media war so Grimes would get cut.

And he did.

The rest is history; Grimes came to the Bucs and was a superstar last season, leading the NFL in passes defensed, and he pulled down four interceptions. He’s been damn good when healthy this year.

Today, Grimes heads back to play Miami, where he and Miko have plenty of haters. And Dolphins beat writer Omar Kelly, a known friend of the Grimes family, said last week that mild-mannered Brent Grimes will have his share extra fire on his mind against his old team.

Usually, the notion of players getting extra focused and dialed in to torch their former team gets totally overblown and never pans out. But Joe has a feeling the Grimes drive today will be firing on all cylinders, and he might take a few extra gambles against giving Jay Cutler. It should be fun to watch.

    Jay Cutler throws INT directly at the defense. The Bucs defenders just has to catch the ball.

    There have been many great coaches and I’m sure I can fire up a debate here but I think the all time greatest coach was Don Shula! His record speaks for itself but when you think of what he did at Baltimore and then Miami.

    And here’s what’s amazing. He did it with no name QB’s and with star QB’s. Shula was a master at working with the talent he had.

    As DK likes to say….these are our guys…and Shula could look at his guys and get the best possible team.

    I agree. Great coaches have a way of creating a TEAM, not a bunch of high draft picks who want to go off script in game situations. It’s a difficult job. Lots of personalities and lots of players who may be great athletes bit may not work well in your team’s scheme. Shula had some great players but that TEAM wanted to win more than anything else
    and they worked well together. Belichick does it better than anyone else today but Brady is really a second coach and an extension of Belichick. They can plug and play players that are unknowns and castoffs better than anyone. Wish we could do the same. To have the talent we have and and have our record is inexcusable.
