Reality Check?




This is the way I see it, partially based on fact but obviously subjective: The Dolphins are a good team.

Many, before the season started, said that if the Dolphins were 50-50 after 8 games, that would be a decent start given the schedule they faced. They are 3-3 after 6, and without wanting to bellyache over it, somewhat robbed, (by the rule as it stands or indecisive officiating, against Pittsburg) of being 4-2.

Almost everyone on the staff has come in for a barrage of abuse at some point, but all have performed better than the detractors claim. Henne/Henning? How many points are being scored against Pittsburg on average?

The two home defeats to division rivals certainly puts us at a disadvantage, but the Patriots game is the only game against a good opponent where we have performed badly.

The Jets and Patriots currently have excellent records, which makes the Dolphins' look worse by comparison, but it's a long season and it may be that we need to beat either or both on the road to reach the playoffs. So be it.

If I am completely wrong about us being very much in the hunt this season, there is plenty to look forward to from our young team.

I'm not attempting to pep talk or anything. I think the fact of the matter is we are a good team, and we have a good head coach. Disappointment may lead to negative talk, but the Steelers game only confirmed what I thought of the team, not the other way round.

I'm expecting some alternative views :)
