That is because (just as we've been saying, and writing) the loss of starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill to a season-ending injury hasn't proved catastrophic. The combination of Tannehill not being all that great and replacement Jay Cutler being good enough means Miami has not fallen off much at the most important position. Cutler encouraged with his sharpness and arm strength Thursday, in going 5 for 8 for 105 yards and a touchdown. His 72-yard strike to DeVante Parker was a thing of beauty. Coach Adam Gase is looking smart for his gamble that hauling Cutler out of retirement would work because he knew Gase's offense from their Chicago days, making his comfort level almost instant.

Progressives were able to impose their sick ideology on a previously healthy society by making a long march through the institutions so as to capture the cultural high ground. They infiltrated the influential pillars of the establishment and eventually took them over, driving out most everyone who would resist their agenda. It happened to the news media, to Hollywood, to education, to the federal bureaucracy. Given that so many focus their attention obsessively on sports, it is unsurprising that progressives have strategically taken over the sports media too.
