Well, here we are at the half way point of the season. The Dolphins are 2-6. Let's take a look at the goods and the bads of this half of the season.
Best Game: until last week, it seemed the Pittsburgh game was the best one, because at least they were competitive, although they lost. But, after last week's win at Chicago, I would say that was their best effort.
Worst Game: Well, with 6 losses, there are a lot to choose from. You could make a case that any of the games against the division foes was bad and ended in a loss. But, I'd have to say the loss to the Texans was my pick for the worst. They coulda shoulda woulda won that game. Except that they had a few lame plays, and wound up down by 11 with very little time left. And then game management became suspect. Nick went for a fieldgoal when he was inside the 5, and then had to go for 2 to *tie* the game late. Mularkey had Ronnie Brown throw a left handed pass. Ugly.
Top rookie: As Drew Rosenhaus would say "next question."
Top offensive player: Ronnie Brown has been consistent, but they haven't found enough ways to use his talents. But, I also have to give a tip of the hat to lineman Vernon Carey for his efforts.
Top defensive player: Jason Taylor is da man in most situations. But, I can't overlook Crowder's accomplishments.
Mid-season MVP: Wes Welker deserves this for his all around effort. He has been amazing to this point.
Biggest disappointment: Choose one from - Randy McMichael; Chris Chambers; Daunte Culepper; Jason Allen
Funniest moment: Watching Nick Saban throwing the red flag pretty much any time during the season.
My prediction: I said they'd go 11-5. That was a dumb thing to do. They'll be lucky - LUCKY - to finish 8-8.
Mid-season Wanker: Its hard to figure that anyone deserves it more than Daunte Culpepper. See the wanker section for more.
