MVP: Ronnie Brown led the way through midseason. Ricky did well. Randy Starks looked like he might take the award at some point, but dropped off. Nate Garner deserved a nomination because he came on strong and played 4 of the 5 positions on the line. But in the end, it was the 5th guy on that o-line, the only player to make the pro bowl, who quietly stole the show. Our MVP is Jake Long.
effort...we'll try again next year.
Instead, the Dolphins will induct Bill Stanfill (one helluva defensive
end) and Jake Scott into the ring.
In Scott's case, the reconciliation with Shula really has opened the door.

The Cardinals game was played on 11/7, but I said it was on the 8th.
(I downloaded the files on the 8th, so that was the date on the file)
And I think that explains it all! I was in an empty stadium, and

games that season. I'm supposing he was inactive that week (or
something) because he doesn't appear in any of the pics I have of the
And Yeremiah Bell was also on the team that year. The game I went to
was late in the year, and he was already on IR with the broken leg.
Hence he was not in any pictures.
I guess we all make mistakes sometimes. Or no wait. It was a test,
and you passed.
The NFL started selling Brandon Marshall #19 jerseys this week. And
in fact, its already among the top sellers.
"As of this point, he's wearing No. 19," Dolphins spokesman Harvey Greene said.
It didn't seem possible Marshall would settle on Ted Ginn Jr.'s old
Dolphins number. And he still may not — according to the NFL, players
can change their numbers, although they must go through a procedure to
Marshall had hoped to secure No. 15 – the number he wore for his
previous team, the Denver Broncos — but Dolphins teammate, wide
receiver Davone Bess, said he's not giving up No. 15. Bess reiterated
again Friday that the number isn't for sale and that he's made that
clear to Marshall without consequences.
"There were no problems from the get-go," Bess said. "He was a man
about the situation. I was a man about the situation. We sat there and
we had a talk. I know it would mean a lot to him. It means a lot to me
as well. We're teammates and we wanted to get past that stage and now
we can focus on football and help each other."
