This Is A Statement Game

That's right. Only 3 weeks into the season and our Miami Dolphins have an opportunity this Sunday to make a bold statement.

By 7:30 Sunday night, we are gonna know whether they are truly contenders or semi pretenders.

Are they becoming league elite or just another top of the middle?  Can they compete with and BEAT one of the better teams in the league or will they fade in the friendly confines of their own heat?

Are they fact or fiction?

Sunday night we will all know.  By then they will have either beaten one of last year's Conference Championship Competitors or NOT!

I don't care how they win or lose.  You don't get to the playoffs or win a division or  gain home field advantage with moral victories.

You either win or lose.  That's it!!  Win or lose.

So this Sunday our Dolphins better show up because I am sure that the Atlanta Falcons will. 

Oh, they've been watching the film.  Their O line knows about our D line.  Their D backs know about our receivers.  They know we blitz.    They know where we run the ball, blah, blah, blah.

They know everything there is to know about the Miami Dolphins.  There will be no surprises.

The Falcons are a veteran team built to win a Super Bowl and they want it now.  They will come prepared.

The difference in this game will be execution.  Whomever blocks, tackles, throws, catches and runs better will win this game.

Nothing else will determine the outcome of this game more than that.

So boys in White with Aqua and Orange trim, I hope and I pray that you show up fired up as all hell!

I hope and pray that you execute!

I hope and pray that you take care of the little things so that the big things take care of themselves!

I hope and pray that you want this damn game more than them!

Because, frankly, we have the talent to go out there and kick their asses!!

And then, by Sunday night, the NFL will be on Alert.
