The HEAT is on - Ross finally puts Sep/Oct games at 1pm

10

Miami has to take all the advantages it can get. For the Miami Dolphins playing in sweltering heat of south Florida in Sept and Oct at 1pm is an advantage they must use. Don Shula knew what an advantage that is and used it to the max. Ross comes in and starts moving the Dolphins home games in Sept and Oct to either night games or 4pm games. Doing that plays into the hands of the opponents. New England, Buffalo, and NY all use the cold weather in Nov/Dec/Jan to their advantage and realish getting Miami up there in the snow and ice. Finally, in 2012 our Sep/Oct home schedule is back where it belongs at 1pm on Sundays. I did some research on Shula's record in day games in Sep/Oct and this is what I found, In Sept home games that were played during the day the Don Shula Dolphins were 27 and 4, or an .870 winning percentage. In Oct they were 33 and 15 or an .670 winning percentage. Even in lean years they won at home in Sep/Oct. When the Dolphins announced that the Raiders game was moved to 1pm, it was the right move. If you are fan who attends the games in Sep/Oct at 1pm, don't complain about the heat, drink more water and relish watching the opponents melting in the 3rd and 4th quarter in those dark road jerseys. I would happily sit in the sun and heat to see the Phins win all of there home Sep/Oct games.
