Having admitted my disease for which no 12-step program exists, I must tell you: this year is no different in one respect - BUT completely different in another.
I expect the Dolphins to win 11-13 games this year. I see them getting better each week and completely embarrassing a few teams along the way. Now, keep in mind, I say this type of thing every year - ask my son or read some old articles. HOWEVER, this year, the entire team seems to have my expectation and outlook. Hell, even the trollers of Radio & Print Media (Orlando, Omar, Walker, et al) have seemed to notice the difference. They are less pessimistic than in years past.
It sincerely seems different. I not only homer-believe, I really believe with my discerning mind that the Miami Dolphins have turned the corner on a decade of forgettable teams. This is the first year of many in which the Dolphins will produce playoff and championship caliber football.
We just need to stay relatively healthy and we will dominate our opponents. We will go 5-1 in our division with TWO victories against the Patriots. You heard that here first!
I Believe! The Team Believes. Soon, the National Media will KNOW!
