My my my, what a roller coaster ride this season has been.
The Miami Dolphins came out of the gates like gang busters, to only slip into disarray before having to weather a perfect storm that somehow righted their ship instead of sinking them for good.
After a month long losing streak and the turmoil of Bully Gate, the Fins are in the playoff hunt and on the verge of something special.
By playing relevant games in December for the first time in years, the buzz building around the team is seething with optimism, maybe more so than it was when the Fins started the year 3-0.
The Miami Dolphins are prime to make a statement, fresh off a win in the snow that ended with Antonio Brown barely stepping out of bounds, with 2 games left at home, 3 overall and all against division foes, could the Football Gods have written a more riveting script?
Today’s game against their division rival New England Patriots is so important to the direction of this franchise, the implications are crazy to fathom.
Winning this game will allow the Dolphins to finish the season hotter than they started it.
Winning this game will solidify Ryan Tannehill’s position as the franchise quarterback, beating the Golden Boy & standard Tom Brady which no Dolphins QB has done since Chad Pennington was aided by the Wild Cat.
Winning this game will save front office jobs and inflict fear into the hearts of all the AFC playoff teams.
The Dolphins are on the verge of catching the winning fever. Call me crazy, delusional, or just plain nuts, but winning this game will give the Dolphins the look of the flawed team that got hot at the right moment and let that momentum carry them to a Super Bowl.
The last 4 or 5 Super Bowl champs weren’t the season favorites, just teams that caught the right vibe at the right time.
The AFC is beatable, as proven by the Chargers beating the Broncos in Mile High, there isn’t a team in the conference the Dolphins can’t beat on any given Sunday, winning this Sunday is the game that can propel them to greater heights as individuals, as a team, and as a franchise.
LETS BEAT THE PATS!! FINS UP!!!
