This past Sunday the New England Patriots once again won another Super Bowl. In a year filled with offensive explosion averaging 23.3 points per game, 2nd only to the 2013 season that averaged 23.4 points per game, Super Bowl 53 was led by defensive dominance. The Los Angeles Rams, who some considered were becoming “The Greatest Show on Grass”, came in with the 2nd ranked offense during the 2018 regular season and were held to a total of three points behind Jared Goff, Todd Gurley (kinda), and Sean McVay. A team that averaged 32.9 points per game in the regular season were held to three measly points. How is that possible? The Patriots gave up 20.3 points in the regular season and were ranked 21st all year, it doesn’t even seem true. It’s all because of one man.
A NEW ERA IN SOUTH BEACH
Brian Flores had that New England defense dialed in on Sunday and he has through all of the playoffs. The Patriots tore the Chargers to shreds, Chiefs offense didn’t exist for a half, and the Rams never reached the Redzone. PURE DOMINANCE. Showcasing exactly the type of style and culture he will bring to the Miami Dolphins next season. In my opinion, the linebacking core with Jerome Baker, Kiko Alonso, and Raekwon McMillan are all set, but Flores will be looking to bring the winning aspect that he learned in the Patriots organization for the past 14 years rather than just the linebacking core as he did this past year. Flores excels on the big stage and it shows beyond last night, you might remember this gem when Brady captured his 4th Super Bowl.
Dolphins fans concerned about him being able to evaluate offensive talent since he is defensive minded, he spent his first three years as a scout for the Patriots. Flores also served as an assistant to the offense in 2010 when New England had the 1st ranked offense. He is now tasked with turning around the league’s 31st ranked offense and 29th ranked defense in 2018, one in which he will be ready to do.
If you’re looking to rebuild, this man seems like the one you take a shot with. Groomed by the greatest dynasty in the history of sports Brian Flores is taking his talents to South Beach after mic dropping the country and helping his now nemesis win their 6th Super Bowl.
On February 4th, 2019, his duty became to build the great city of Miami, a CHAMPION.
