On Sunday the Dolphins will host one of the two or three best teams in the league when the Steelers march into Sun Life Stadium. Though I have a feeling there won't be many picking the Dolphins, let's see who the media is picking:
|Adam Schefter - Pit||Chris Mortensen - Pit||Tom Jackson - Pit|
|Ron Jaworski - Pit||Peter King - Pit||Mike Florio - Pit|
|Gregg Rosenthal - Pit||Pete Prisco - Mia||Jason Cole - Pit|
|Sterling Sharpe - Pit||Brian Billick - Pit||Brian Baldinger - Mia|
This is about what I expected. And it's fair, I suppose. The Dolphins are 0-2 at home against very good teams. The Steelers are another very good team. Many are calling Pittsburgh Super Bowl contenders - and for good reason.
That's why the Dolphins have a chance to really make a statement. But if they come up short, we're all going to be wondering if this is just what the 2010 version of the dolphins are - an above average team that hasn't beaten the league's best teams.
With that said, I'm expecting a strong showing this week. I believe the Dolphins will go toe to toe with the big bad Steelers. But will they do enough to win this slugfest?
You tell me...
