Dolphins win again! ...hopefully :)

    My 18 year old son, Jon, wrote this and I thought it was pretty well written - and his points seem valid, so..

    We are 2-0 and the fans and media finally have a reason to be positive about our team.  We finally have  a realistic chance at a playoff spot.  And it feels so good!!  With that being said, we play Atlanta this week. And most people don't expect us to win, for a good reason.  There is no denying Atlanta is a powerhouse team with an offense that is just scary.  I mean come on, Julio Jones, Roddy White, Tony Gonzalez, and Matt Ryan all on the same team?!?  That's just unfair.  It may be crazy to think we can beat Atlanta.  But, I honestly think we can and will.  In the words of the great Billy Joel, "you may be right, I may be crazy."

    To beat this football team we must play mistake free football.  That means we can't give up the ball and we can't give up many penalties.  This is not an impossible feat!  We gave up zero penalties last week against a good football team and who says we can't do it again?  Honestly, we need to if we want the dolphins to go 3-0 for the first time in recent memory.  We also have to win the turnover battle...and by that I mean, we can have no turnovers.  Other than the incompletion the zebras called a fumble, we didn't give the ball away last week either  (A few more calls like that, and I'm gonna have to declare zebra season!!).

    I know that there were some no calls that probably should have been called against the Phins, but for the most part we played a clean, mistake free football game and came out on top.  If we can do that again and get our offense going full throttle for 60 minutes, there is no reason the Dolphins couldn't get that third W and something for everyone to talk about come Sunday night.

Well said. MD, your out and son is in.


I honestly think this game is gonna hinge on one or two plays - a turnover, a costly mistake or a special teams gaffe. I think Philbin has the team headed in the right direction, playing disciplined, relatively mistake free football.

My pick: Phins win 24-21


Mark, you are picking Miami??? I thought you had us finishing 7-9. We will need to lose these games for us to lose 9. Anyway, I am very glad you decided to see the good team we have...
