Jay Cutler is making his debut with the Miami Dolphins and so far the gameplan has been pretty conservative. The former Broncos and Bears quarterback has a reputation for being a gunslinger, but he mostly stuck to short, efficient passing in the first half against the Los Angeles Chargers.
But with two seconds left in the half, Cutler let it rip down the field and … yikes.
The Chargers took the lead in the second quarter and didn’t fall behind until the Dolphins went ahead with 1:10 left in the game. Los Angeles responded on the next drive with large chunks of yardage on the first few plays and set up a potential game-winning field goal attempt.
But again Younghoe Koo’s attempt to save the Chargers in the final seconds of the game was no good. While his try in Week 1 was blocked, his 44-yard attempt against the Dolphins was just pushed wide right.
The Chargers finished 5-11 in their final season in San Diego, but somehow managed to blow a fourth-quarter lead in seven of those 11 losses. While the team didn’t have a lead in Week 1 against the Broncos at any point, the Chargers rallied and had a chance to tie.
Things just never seem to go right for the Chargers in crunch time.
“He watches a lot of guys who do it right and he applies it to himself. The whole team sees that and it just becomes contagious and we all grow as aJames Conner Youth Jersey whole,” Bryant said. “As for him, it’s outstanding. The guy is extremely young and the way he approaches his game is second to none. Some of the young quarterbacks I’ve seen in the past, they have all different kinds of brain farts. With him on the other hand, he’s just, ‘I got it. Whatever you throw at me, I got Cameron Jordan Youth Jersey it.’ It feels like he’s been here for a good five years.”
