The Chill Pill: Friends In Low Places

Medic who?  I'm your bartender today.  Drink up people because that is the only remedy i got for you.   I did it all day Sunday,  trust me it works.   I was actually trying to pace myself going into the half because i wanted to remember the game this time.  But as the game wore on,  the pitchers of bud light came.  Then the shots of jagger,  then the tequila.   By the fourth quarter I was overwhelmed by a plethora of feelings and liquors.   What it really boils down to is we lost, barely, to one of the best teams in football.  Feelings and liquor aside,  we should not be overly upset about this one.

I know the hot topic,  its Ted Ginn's continual suckiness.  I'm not disagreeing.  I'm not even close to disputing it.  But what can we do?  What can the FO and coaching do?  We are stuck with this guy and it blows.  I pronounced Ginn D.O.A. in the third quarter of the Chargers game,  and my medical opinion is that he's still dead.  Dead to me at least.

Bill Parcells knows what he's doing.  He's building this team like a freaking genius.  Its just to hard for a lot of us to grasp.  We are all part of the "I want what i want and i want it now" generation.  If you really think about whats going on in Miami you should come away with a euphoric feeling of fuzziness.  Parcells is doing exactly what he promised.  He's constructing a football team with a winning culture methodically and correctly.   The process just seems to move so slow at times that it can really be painful to us avid fans.  I ask you fellow Dolfans to please be patient and see the big picture.  It really is poetry in motion,  and the Parcells process is a work of literature that should be appreciated and respected. 

Here's a funny vid/song.  The answer to the question in it has long been delivered.  YES.

I want us to win badly.  I know we all do.  This year has started exactly the way last year started: 2-4.  Yeah, remember that?  Right before we went on that NASTY run to win 9 of our last 10 games?  The difference I see this year from Dolphis fans is that we are more pissed off.  I see this as a good thing.  We're not jumping ship.  We're still showing up to the bar on gameday with our Dolphins gear donned.  I know last year that wasn't happening.  You know who you are, its ok.  You were watching from home,  too ashamed to publicly be a Phins fan.  This year I've seen Phinatics out in full force, at least in Hawaii.  I know just from watching on TV that attendance is outstanding at Landshark.   The pride in this team is fully restored,  amongst fans and players.  I couldn't be happier with where we're going.  I just cant wait to get there. 

I know there's been a lot of bickering going on here at The Phinsider.  Tex even suggested that I make it the subject of a Chill Pill to help us get along.  My take is that this is why we're here.  We have differences of opinion and that's what makes this community great.  We can come on here and let our feelings and thoughts be known.  Some people seem to enjoy going against the grain  and i for one appreciate it.  Somebodies gotta be "The one",  right neo?   As long as we can all be respectful of each other i say we continue to enjoy the good debates that we get into. 

Our next 2 games are critical.  There is A LOT riding on the game @NYJ.  We absolutely need to win this one.   I predict Ginn to have a big game.  I'm not flip flopping,  i still hate his guts,  but Ginn has huge confidence issues.  I think he will have a fire lit under his ass in this one because of what he did to Revis last time.  Now the same could be said of Revis,  with him stepping up and letting Ginn know that his catch on MNF wont happen again.  However,  i dont see it playing out like that.  So here's to Teddy getting it done at least one more time. 

I know we've all seen this a billion times,  but lets enjoy Ginn's highlight (singular) one more time.

Well freaks, my fingers are tired, and so is my brain.  I gotta wake up and do "muscle failure" PT in the morning.  Sweet right?   Please feel free to post your questions, comments and concerns below.  Medic's Out.
