Miami- I'm not impressed!

Post by s.. » Wed, 18 Sep 1996 04:00:00


I'm sort of getting sick of all the media hype given to Johnson and his
Dolphins.  Sure they are 3-0, but who have they played.  The Jets, Cardinals,
and Patriots are all teams that will be drafting in the to 5 next year.  the
dolphins have won three games that they SHOULD HAVE, WERE EXPECTED TO, BETTER
HAVE won!  I'm still not impressed and I think ST. Jimmy and the  Fish are in
for  a rude awakening in Indianapolis on Monday!

that's great, except that NO ONE was picking miami to win against new
england.  everyone kept saying that bledsoe was going to throw all over
the dolphin's weak secondary (which, btw, has nine (9) interceptions for
the first three games.)  sure, the other teams weren't good teams, but
it's not the dophin's fault they play them.  yes they were expected to
beat them and did so handedly.  the jets games was not really as close as
the score said.  three jets touchdowns came on 1)  100 yrd interception,
2)  fourth down "hail mary" pass brought down by johnson, and 3)  a long
passing touchdown after the miami defender gambled for the interception.

as for the colts this monday, even though i'm a dolphin fan, i think the
colts may win this, though it should be a good game.

You're quite wrong. For one, Miami was a 3 point favorite to win, and most
people(perhaps everyone) here picked the Dolphins to beat New England.

FWIW, I picked Miami, 24-17.

: everyone kept saying that bledsoe was going to throw all over the
: dolphin's weak secondary(which, btw, has nine (9) interceptions for
: the first three games.)  

Who's "everyone"? Just curious. Because the "everyone" surely weren't
here deep in the heart of Dolphin country. If nothing else, there was
more of an emphasis on stopping Curtis Martin than worry and dread
over Bledsoe(and besides, outside of Coates, who got constantly double
teamed at the line of scrimmage, who could he throw to? Shawn Jefferson?
Maybe....if he hung on to the ball....which he couldn't before he got
injured).

: sure, the other teams weren't good teams, but it's not the dophin's
: fault they play them.  

I know, but that's not the point. The point is, Coach Hairspray's squad
has fattened up on three poor to abysmal teams so far(though I don't think
the Patriots will be in the top 5 for next year's draft). He's not a
genius....he's just a coach for a team that has lucked out with a simple
schedule.

I agree with Scott....beating New England, Arizona, and the Jets isn't
an overly impressive feat. If they can beat the Colts, I know my own
view of the Dolphins will change a bit, but for now, I see them as
somewhat unimpressive, too.

: yes they were expected to beat them and did so handedly.  

But this is a direct contradiction to what you said, though. You
emphatically claimed that no one felt Miami would beat New England, but
now you say that they were indeed expected to win these games.

At least here you're correct....but weren't before.

: the jets games was not really as close as the score said. three jets
: touchdowns came on 1) 100 yrd interception, 2) fourth down "hail mary"
: pass brought down by johnson, and 3) a long passing touchdown after
: the miami defender gambled for the interception.

I agree with this, but you being a Dolphin fan, you should know the
history these two teams have head-to-head(i.e., a lot of high scoring
games). Somehow, I couldn't have imagined you sitting comfortably through
this game....

: as for the colts this monday, even though i'm a dolphin fan, i think
: the colts may win this, though it should be a good game.

Agreed. Except I think the Colts *will* win this game.
