Good to hear the positive vibes... hopefully "we won't be fooled again"... I think most of us are excited to find out..
Over the years there have been continued complaints about our teams lack of national recognition... now the media is recognizing us for the Rosen trade AND becoming "New England South East lol
I guess we will take the attention where we can get it...now we just need a winning team to keep it going
That's nice but we don't need to be "New England South East". Cheaters will never get my respect.
We'd be a hell of a lot better off being "Shula's Dolphins 2.0"
I respect the hell out of Shula, and consider him a legend in his own time, but let's not pretend that the sole reason for NEs success was cheating.
They have consistently evolved, and been ahead of the curve philosophically.
If Miami can establish that same innovative approach, Call It whatever you want.
Shula operated in an entirely different era. There was virtually no player movement allowed. There was no salary cap to deal with, and the complexity of both offense, and defense, were no where near what they are in the modern game.
I'm not saying Don wouldn't be successful today, but it's an apples to oranges comparison.
There is also something to be said when a team has, arguably, the best thrower of a football in history, yet failed to establish a complimentary running attack, or an above average defense.
Dolphins reborn, resurrection, rebirth whatever. It's time to start a new era.
I'd just like to point out that "Chris Simms Unbuttoned" is an awful name for a show.
Could be worse, I suppose.
The naked truth?
Their evolution and philosophy involves consistent, flagrant disregard for the rules.
I'm against that and I hope no one brings that to the Dolphins.
No fooling here. Miami has a chance to draft a QB next year too if this year doesn’t work out. Win win.
I guess we will have to agree to disagree.
I don't believe the incidents of cheating, and yes, there are undeniable examples, are the driving force behind their success.
I don't think any of us fans want a cheating culture, but let's not throw the baby out with the bathwater.
Simms officially lost me when he said New England south east.
New england South East.
To me, its a meh, non issue, but i can understand why a fan may not like the association, and prefer their own unique identity.
On a national level, though, the connection of the dots is undeniable.
Football isn't connect the dots.
But reporting/journalism is.
They make their livings with words, ideas, and opinions. Some, no doubt, also push individual agendas.
If you have an issue with their reporting, take it up with them. I was just saying why I believe the narrative is what it is.
And you fall for it, hook line and sinker.
