A few weeks ago, we were all - the media, the fans, talk radio hosts - talking about how bad this team was. How it was bereft of talent. How the #1 overall pick was within our grasp.
And then the Fins go out and win two games, one at home (which hasn't happened since about 1956, or so it would seem), and the media and many fans start talking about the talent on this team. How they're playing together. How great they're doing.
And I just don't understand it. This team has a few decent players on it., but "talent" is sorely lacking. They managed to win two games, after losing 7. They're going nowhere. And the wins were against the god-awful Redskins and the Chiefs who lost to the legend of Tebow this week.
They are as bad as the '07 team. The difference here is coaching. Cam was awful. The bootin' bull keeps them motivated and handles himself well in-game for the most part.
So net-net, I don't see that optimism.
As for the Redskins, I saw a few hilights, and the one thing I'd say to Vontae "I act like a pro when I'm in the mood" Davis and Karlos "I think I'm the best, but y'all know better" Dansby, is that I can't give you much credit. My non-football-playing grandmother could have made either of those picks. There was no pass rush, and Grossman threw a couple of bad balls. In fact, I would argue that the Dolphins should have made more picks. Their ineptitude showed through there.
