Is This It?
Is this our season?
I think it might be, and heres why...
This is a new era of football. For a number of years now, this league has been a pasing league. Everyone used to say that winning the superbowl requires a great running game and an elite defence. not anymore. Yes you do need an elite defence, im not saying you don't, but i dont believe you need a great running game anymore. Based on these pre season games our passing attack looks brilliant. Lots of deep throws, lots of reciever screens, lots of well everything needed to be successful in the passing game. I know its only pre season. But I believe it now. I think we have our guy. And i believe that having that guy, gives you a chance at all times.
An article a few weeks back, Mosul, stated that he believed the Dan Marino era was the most depressing... I agreed. But there was always one thing missing in that era, one half of the criteria needed to win a superbowl, and it was a great defence. Whilst Dan the Man was under centre not once did we have an elite defence. NOT ONCE. So lets say Chad Henne has the season we all hope he's going to have, and tosses 20+ touchdowns and under 15 interceptions, a solid season, and confirms his case to be our guy. well that could be it, we could be on our way to a superbowl. Do i think that Just because of Henne? Hell No.
We now have that elite defence. The defence that would of won us a superbowl with Marino under centre. Their all here. From the front seven to the secondary, every player on our defence is good, if not great.
The most recent pres season game, we showed an inability to run the ball. While i know running the ball keeps the defence honest, i dont believe it plays that much of a factor when your talking superbowl. The teams that win the superbowl these days are passing teams. Thats just how it is.
So I will ask you all? Is This It? im going to put my ass on the line and place a £100 bet (I'm from England) on The 2011 Miami Dolphins to win the superbowl. Because as of right now im a Believer!
