For all the talk about losing every game and getting into the Luck Lottery, the Luck Lottery looked a little less exciting after watching Stanford’s game last Saturday. Far better was looking at the Miami Dolphins on Sunday vs. the Washington Redskins. The Dolphins are actually playing like a real unit and unified football squad. They have now won 2 straight games, including the win at Sun Life Stadium, their first in almost a year. Yes, a year. Now the Dolphins are favored by a couple of points against the once aspiring Buffalo Bills. Home field maybe will have an advantage. The team is showing some spunk and not playing such conservative ball. Not to be confused with the Green Bay Packers, but at least the boys can hold their heads up. Reggie Bush is running, Jason Taylor is sacking, and finally Dansby is becoming the player the Dolphins hoped and thought he could be. Playoffs not in the picture, but playing is. Go out and see for yourself.
Remember the election with hanging Chads. Well now the Miami Dolphins have no more Chad. Chad Henne, hurt on a busted play against the San Diego Chargers, is out for the season, and most likely out forever with the Dolphins who at best have not had any success with him. Signing Sage Rosenfels who has not thrown a single regular season pass since 2008 is where the Dolphins are: Still missing a quarterback since Dan Marino left. The Dolphins have Mat Moore as the starter. There’s no question, the Dolphins need More, Not Moore. Let’s see what the rest of 2011 brings. Hopefully pride will win out over talent. Tough to really say congrats to Sage Rosenfels. Let’s play it out. Reggie Bush, you better start running.
The Miami Dolphins Ricky Williams who always heard the chant of “Run Ricky run”, is still “run Ricky run”, not in Miami, not in Machu Picchu, but now in Baltimore, drafted by the Baltimore Ravens. He’s been good for the Dolphins, and the Dolphins were good for Ricky, but now change has come. I think everyone in South Florida will miss Ricky not running at Sun Life Stadium. However, for Ricky it’s a good move. While I think he could have been a good compliment to Reggie Bush, he has a better chance to be in contention for the playoffs with the Ravens. Bill Parcells, no longer with the Dolphins of course, once left a can of gas in Ricky’s locker which was pretty clever. Ricky showed he still had plenty left in the tank. Now the Miami Dolphins have to hope that Reggie Bush has enough in his tank. His endurance and ability to stay healthy remains questionable. David Thomas, the rookie will have to stay on the field and do well for the running game to get running.
Vernon Carey has decided to stay with the Miami Dolphins. He hasn’t moved to another team, but he has moved over one spot. He’s replacing John Jerry, who did not show the team anything. Vernon Carey hasn’t played guard since his Miami Hurricanes days, but we hope he can make the adjustment. He’s got a good group around him, including Pouncey, Richie Incognito and Jake Long. The Dolphins have also signed Marc Columbo. These guys should get the job done for the Dolphins. There are so many other issues, but at least there is another veteran player for coach Sparano to work with. We’ll take any good news.
The Miami Dolphins are one of the busiest clubs in the NFL. Jeff Ireland is on the clock himself, and has to be looking to plug up a myriad of holes, on offense, defense and special teams. You name it, they need it. A very good start is the signing of now former New Orleans Saints, Reggie Bush. Reggie gives the Dolphins a solid third down runner, a dynamic return threat, and a guy who will bring fans to Sun Life Stadium seats. Now they are working on a quarterback. Kyle Orton seems to be their idea of a prize. Kind of a side way move to me, but hopefully he can do better than Chad Henne. It will also be interesting to see if Ricky Williams will stay in Miami. I think Ronnie Brown is definitely the odd man out. Keep on signing Dolphins. We need some entertaining and productive football.
