Driving home from work this afternoon I was able to pick up ESPN radio for a change (my town sucks and there are no sports talk shows on the radio). Just in time I might add to hear them talk about the Miami Dolphins. The big topic around the media waves this Monday revolves around the 3-0 teams. Naturally the media wants to nitpick what teams are contenders and which ones are pretending. The 2012 Arizona Cardinals team get’s brought up a lot. Them of the 4-0 start followed by the sunken ship that dropped to the bottom.
Surprisingly most in the media believe that Miami’s record is no fluke. In addition many of those in the media are playing the “Would you have ???QB on your roster or Ryan Tannehill?” The answer to most of those questions is Tannehill. It’s a swing completely in another direction as we have seen time and again the Dolphins as the media’s whipping boy. Three and “O” will do that. Hey the fans came back on Sunday registering a 70,000 plus attendance.
The Dolphins are playing good football despite bad mistakes. More importantly they are one of the top teams in Red Zone offense (imagine that). For the team however it’s a good idea to put down the papers and to stop reading the hype…human nature is you will start to believe it.
