Fireman Ed

With respect to Big Papa Pump who earlier said he didn't understand why Fireman Ed would quit on his team... I get it. I respect it. And I understand.

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.

Asking for autographs

There's a "story" out there about Jamal Charles asking Peyton Manning for an autograph after the game.

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.

That was fun

Just when I was just about done with the Dolphins, they pull out a win against a good team and in a comeback manor. I started to notice that the last couple of games where really boring, mainly because we were losing. Now however just when you thought we were out of the playoff picture we pull off a win and are just one game back from a wild card seed. Two teams are ahead of us, the Steelers who lost to the Browns and are not looking good without Ben, and the Bengals who we would hold the tie breaker head to head against because we beat them earlier in the year. Tannehill had one of his more impressive games when it counted in the fourth quarter. He was able to pull out the comeback and pull three consecutive drives with scores that were desperately needed. There is still a little hope for this season in terms of playoffs but with two games against the patriots and one against the 49ers it will be tough. Also on another note Wilson is going to be a good player in the future, that guy is fun to watch and can make something out of nothing. However with that being said, from what I saw today I would rather have the guy who we have under center right now then Wilson for the present and future.
