You gotta feel for Josh Rosen.
The former UCLA star lasted just one painful season with the Arizona Cardinals before losing his job to a rookie and being traded to the woeful Miami Dolphins.
And now he’ll be the starting quarterback for the tanking team, which made the announcement on Thursday that Rosen will replace Ryan Fitzpatrick under center this week when they travel to Dallas to face the unbeaten Cowboys, who are heavily favored to beat the Dolphins.
While being named a starter in the NFL is usually good news, this situation is far from that as things will likely only get worse for the Dolphins as the season goes on.
Josh Rosen goes from playing with one of the worst offensive lines and supporting casts in Arizona last year that I can recall in recent memory to playing with….
An even worse offensive line and inferior supporting cast in Miami. Not getting much help early in his career.

Rosen’s head will be on a swivel yet again as he tries to get his NFL career going once again.
NFL media and fans felt bad for him:
Let’s create the absolute most dog situation possible for the young QB we acquired so we can then evaluate how he handles “adversity” when we start him. Good luck Josh Rosen.

Now they can lose by 36 instead of 43.

Josh Rosen went from the worst team in the NFL to the worst team in the NFL. The hot tub seems preferable tbh

If I'm Josh Rosen I would politely decline the offer to be sacrificed as a tribute for this year's Hunger Games. https://t.co/nOB8AGlmGF
