I like the Brandon Marshall move. With the extension, it looks like a sweet deal. That makes the already potent Dolphins even more of a threat. I like that. I really do. I don't see the Jets, Phins or Bills as enemies. Sure, only one of us can win the division, but that's beside the point. As a martial artist, I see the Jets, Phins, and Bills as sparring partners. Each of us pushing each other to best represent our division. The division that used to be called the AFC Least. A label that no longer fits.
I don't want my team to have a weak division. It's not healthy for the team. You end up in the playoffs every year, but you can't win the prize at the end. The Lombardi trophy belongs in our division - every year. We hone our skills by playing each other. If you are stronger, we must get stronger to compete. The division competition is healthy and desireable. I want you guys strong. I want Belichick to work his butt off planning for you. I want Brady fighting like hell to get the ball to his receivers and the line fighting to keep him upright. I want our defense on their toes trying to stop you. If, by some miracle, we make the playoffs, we'll be prepared. If we can claw our way out of the AFC East, we'll be prepared for the rest of the NFL.
Trial by fire hardens you, and this year we may get burned. I'm good with that. In fact, I wouldn't have it any other way. Good luck to you on your season, and may it be injury free. Thanks, guys. Football this year is going to be a lot more fun.
