A not-so-wise woman once wrote: "At this point, it is hard to envision the Dolphins winning one game with the players on their current roster."
Yup, there it was, an 0-16 prediction right under my name in a July 22 column along with unflattering comments about Ricky Williams and a host of others.
To say I was wrong is an understatement — even though I wrote this B.C. (Before Chad). Even after Chad Pennington signed with Miami, I thought the Dolphins would be lucky to go 3-13.
So this is a mea culpa for calling the team garbage, for complaining that it was downright awful to have Williams as the face of the franchise. It is Williams, after all, who helped Ronnie Brown unleash the Wildcat offense that has helped the Dolphins to their most surprising season in franchise history.
and looky here!
"Fins fans feel like football is back," said Ryan Yousefi, a contributor to the Dolphins fan sitewww.ThePhinsider.com. "We know what December should feel like, and it hasn't felt this way in years. Monday mornings, flags are flying on cars, people can be heard chatting Fins football in line places. Grown men are giggling like they are 12 again. Soccer moms now chat about the upcoming game over coffee.
"Weekends are fun again, and when your NFL team is good, the city really does seem like a better place to be."
