Vic Carucci: Why the Dolphins are Legit

Ahh..R.E.S.P.E.C.T.....

 

It wasn't a case of the Dolphins already putting themselves in the playoffs. They were simply acknowledging that after winning their last two games to go to 4-4, they have a shot at something that seemed impossible after last year's 1-15 finish.

It is possible this season and here's why:

» The Dolphins are only a game behind the three other teams in the AFC East -- New England, the Jets, and Buffalo -- and have beaten the Patriots and Bills.

» They have a smart, efficient quarterback in Chad Pennington running a balanced offense that allows him to utilize a new difference-making weapon each week. In Week 8, it was Ted Ginn Jr.'s 175-yard receiving effort that helped dispose of the Bills. In Week 9, it was Greg Camarillo's 11 receptions that helped sink the Broncos.
