Well Dolphin fans it is 3 down & 13 to go to a 16-0 record. Ricky is DA man!
Very nice results so far for both Dolphins and Saints fans over the Williams trade. I wonder how things will shape up 3 months from now. One things for sure, my Vikings will probably be 0-16 if they keep this crap up
It was pretty ugly today. Especially between the QB & Moss.
If Miami makes it to October 20 still unbeaten, circle that day as the day perfection comes to a grinding halt...If however, they are less than perfect going into 10/20/2002...i guess it will be salt in the wound.
PS It was bad enough last week for Minnesota...but cmon...
Oops! I meant to type, "Nobody could overlook this."
Stephanie, I remember the 1972 season very vividly. I watched as many games as I could that amazing year. A lot of the credit for their perfect record should go to Earl Morrall who subbed for the injured Bob Griese.
Well, Jeff, I envy you for that. I was in nursery school during that season and have only fragmentary memories of the Dolphins' glory years.
One memory in particular stands out, though: my father, yelling at the TV--
"GAA-ROOO!! WHAT were you thinking?!?!?!?!"
I think it was the combination of the funny-sounding name and the notes of confusion and panicked alarm in my father's voice that seared that one in my memory...
As for my [Marino years] generation, my "Garo"-type memory would have to be WR Duriel Harris injuring his own ankle while coming down hard in a theatrical ball-spike after scoring a TD -- in a playoff game ['82?]. Shula looked like he was about to bust a gasket, he was so mad...
Holy Crap! I think that Miami is going to go 15-1! See ya in October!
The Dolphins always start with a BANG but have had problems late in the season. If they can stay healthy, they may have a good shot at being in the mix at the end. That touchdown run Ricky Williams had against the JETS last Sunday was quite impressive. Their schedule is not too kind, they have some cold weather games in November and December, those will be the true test. As for now, South Florida is a fun place for football. Go Fish...Go 'Canes. -Gary
Indeed the end of the year will be the TEST. But right now they appear to be the real deal. Amazing how a good running game changes things for a team.
Miami's march to "perfection" has been derailed.
And with a gigantic thud!. Well on to trying to win the Division & maybe having the best Conference record.
You probably just picked the wrong Miami team to have a perfect season. The Hurricanes may yet make this thread's title come true. Rob
Well if anyone wants to serve up some crow, I'm ready to eat it. I had hopes for a great season, but to no avail. Considering the way that their season came to an end, I believe that the Dolphin management needs to take a VERY hard look at this team. There is enough individual talent on this team that a 9-7 record should not have occurred. This team just does not seem to have what it takes inside to be able to make the plays in critical situations in hostile environments to preserve a win or to come back to win. The loss to New England to end the season is a prime example. I think some personnel changes to obtain players who have this intangible fire in their belly should be made. This quote by Zach Thomas says it, "This team does not have a killer instinct,'' Miami's Zach Thomas said. "You can say all you want about how we should have won, but I'm sick and tired of hearing how good we are. We can't win a big game." I've never been & will never be a believer in Jay Fiedler as a championship caliber starting QB. He is a caretaker type. A good backup QB who is starting because his team has no one better. David Woodley was the same type of QB with Miami, in between two franchise QBs (Griese & Marino). I felt during the draft that Miami should have attempted to position themselves to draft Drew Brees. This team must find a higher caliber QB if they wish to have a chance to go all the way. Otherwise the talents of Ricky Williams & some of the defensive players will go to waste. This team also committed far too many penalties this year. That was never a problem during the Shula years. I hope this loss really burns in the guts of this team during the off season. Then maybe their fans will see a team next year with a real fire in the belly attitude & desire to succeed.
Brian "Nobody Likes Me" Griese is not in the same league with his father. I doubt he would perform too much better than Fiedler.
