Game day against the Jaguars
Today the Huntsville Times is reporting Saban is expected to interview for the job this week. Ridiculous.
This is a guy who wouldn't go across town during training camp to have dinner with the President but he's going to take time out during his preparations for the New England Patriots to interview for another job.
Saban has not commented on the report before today's game. As Harvey Greene, the PR guy for the Dolphins told me, if it were the New York Times reporting this, he'd ask Saban for a statement.
The Huntsville Times? Not happening.
Saban will be asked after the game and deny the thing again. I believe he will and believe his sincerity.
As for today's game: It now seems clear that Travis Daniels has lost his starting cornerback job to Andre' Goodman.
Today marks the first time in nearly five weeks that Goodman, Will Allen and Daniels are all healthy. And it will be Allen and Goodman starting for Miami while Daniels comes off the bench in nickel and dime packages.
As I sit here, the Jets are pounding Green Bay, New England is showing little interest in beating Detroit despite their game being tied, and the Bills are trying to mount a comeback against San Diego, which I believe is the most complete team in the AFC.
That simply tells me the Dolphins have little security of beating any of these three division rivals in the coming weeks. The Dolphins lost the first meeting against all three and it says here they'll probably be under .500 in the rematches.
