Sure maybe he was more visible / high profile than bitchin Dave. But we were big-time fans of our respective teams.
And for our own reasons we each stepped aside as the team let us down, and other fans disrespected us for doing what we did.
Ed: enjoy your time away. You can still be a fan, but you don't have to be as public about it.
And I say: so what?
Here's a related story: back on 1987, the player strike was going on. The replacement players were brought in to play a few games.
After the lone dolphins home game, two players approached Don Shula and asked him for an autograph.
And this was in a day before autographs were big. Ridiculous? Maybe. But I still love it.
Tannehill completed 18 of 26 passes for 253 yards and one touchdown as the Dolphins beat the Seahawks 24-21. With a nine yard completion to Davone Bess in the game, Tannehill set the team record for most passing yards in a season by a Dolphins rookie quarterback and now has 2,373 yards on the season. Tannehill moved past Dan Marino who passed for 2,210 yards as a rookie in 1983.
Tannehill marched Miami 80 yards for the tying score. Tannehill drove the Dolphins 65 yards in the game's final minute and a half to set up kicker Dan Carpenter's winning field goal as time expired in a 24-21 victory.
