I had to head in to work today. I know, it's Saturday, but some things needed to get done here. But, that was good for The Phinsider. Why? Because whenever I drive in to work, I listen to ESPN Radio. My timing was perfect.
Mortensen's response was:
"Last night I really watched the Dolphins pretty closely, with Chad Henne finally having Reggie Bush and Brandon Marshall together. That was really vital for me at this point. I heard that there's been a really good week of practice, because, you know, the first week against Atlanta, Marshall and Bush did not dress up and play. I thought Chad Henne looked like a different quarterback. And that's what can happen.
"And I think when you add a Reggie Bush, as the people who have played the Saints have told me, and a lot of people, over the years, when you played the Saints and Reggie Bush was in the lineup, it made the Saints a better team. You know, you still had to account for Reggie Bush, no matter what you think of him.
"And Brandon Marshall, although he wasn't perfect last night, I know that he and Henne are getting closer to being on the same page. So, Miami jumped out at me last night. I think that they are underrated and a team that may not be fun to play. A team that's been bashed probably more than, you know, they deserve."
It may not be a lot of love from the media, but it's a start. Someone has noticed that the Dolphins are putting some things together in Miami. Maybe, just maybe, the media hate-fest against the Dolphins could be ending.
We can only hope.
