The Dolphins did not beat the Pittsburgh Steelers today. But clearly, they did not lose to them either; they lost to the NFL Officials. The Steelers? They ain’t so tough. They ain’t so great. Dolphins can play and beat any team in the league right now and are only improving in the meantime.
Miami kept it close and answered again and again, unceasingly. Be proud as a Dolphins fan – this team is only getting better while the Steelers are getting worried and barely came away with a W in this game. The Dolphins fought through the entire game and came away looking like Rocky!
My brief note here will not be a game review but just a note: the Dolphins have played tough in every game so far and the only “blowout” was against the Patriots due to Special Teams mis-coaching. This is clearly a Dolphins team on the rise and making the playoffs can definitely happen.
Clearly a Fumble Recovery
I watched the game while surrounded by Steelers fans. And they were very quiet after the Rothlisberger fumble in the 4th quarter. And even after the “win” these fans were not jumping for joy. Why? They know. They know that the Dolphins in fact, beat them and out-played the Steelers. This was supposed to be a roll-over for Pittsburgh and every commentator save 2 had them favored – overwhelmingly so. And clearly, the Dolphins are a better team than many have credited.
Will the Dolphins Step Up to the Next Level?
That is the big question. They looked impressive here, even in defeat. It is a personal decision for every member of the team to make: will the Dolphins step up to become a Champion?
