Can we be real here? This situation the Miami Dolphins find themselves in ? practicing 2,700 miles from home, living out of a a suitcase, getting ready to play their season opener after their opponent has already cleaned up mistakes made in their first outing ? is not good news.
This is the opposite of good. This is distraction. This is an upsetting of the routine. This is burdensome.
The Dolphins, like it or not, enter their season opener against the Los Angeles Chargers at a competitive disadvantage.
No one on the Dolphins team will admit this.

In fact, the team?s personnel has invested a lot of time and energy to make it seem like them being away from home while home is A) damaged or B) without power or C) needing major cleanup is not a problem at all.
