NY media jumping on the Dolphins' bandwagon?

New, comments

OK.  So the title of this post is a little misleading - that I will admit.  But hey, I wanted to get your attention.

However, my assertion above isn't too far off.  At least one member of the NY media is indeed giving the Dolphins props.  Dave Hutchinson of the Newark Star-Ledger writs the following:

I got some bad news for the Jets, though. I was talking to one of my Miami guys and he tells me RB Ricky Williams is back and he's running wild. Williams has surplanted Ronnie Brown as the starter and will likely get nearly 20 carries.

As I wrote today, Williams is a notorious Jets killer, having rushed for 530 yards and five touchdowns on 131 carries in six career games against the Jets.

Williams is just what QB Chad Pennington needs. Chad can give him the ball 20-25 times, completed 16 of 22 passes and you have a Dolphins win.

First off, let me just say that I wouldn't read too much into Hutchinson's "Miami guy" because we all know this regime isn't giving out info like that.  In fact, Tony Sparano wouldn't even tell us who would start at running back, instead telling us to "buy a ticket" to find out.  So this is just an educated guess.

But how about that formula for a win that Hutchinson provides.  Sound good to you?  I'll even add to throw in 10 to 15 carries for Ronnie Brown as well.  That's exactly the recipe for success not only this Sunday but every Sunday for the Dolphins.
