I’m afraid I started this season with exceptionally high hopes.  The Dolphins were among the worst in the league.  Then, with Coach Gase on board, we’re suddenly in the playoffs.  Additionally, they acquired some quality talent in key positions during the offseason so my expectations were high for a winning season in Miami this year.

To say the season has had a rough start would certainly be an understatement.  The Dolphins started with a canceled game, a hurricane, Tannehill out (again), international travel, continuing pre game controversy and the embarrassing offensive line coach debacle.  True, some of these distractions are self–inflicted, but not all.  

Yet here we are at 2-2.  This is a very important week for the Dolphins.  After all they’ve been through and continue to face, can they turn it around?  These next few weeks are pivotal and could be their defining moment.  I believe the talent is there but they need a leader.  They need someone to rally them as a TEAM!  Someone who can inspire them to WIN!  So far, I haven’t seen them play as a real team….a cohesive unit on the field.

Their division is probably the toughest division right now.  They’ll have to find a way to dig deep and come together as a team to stay in the hunt.  Hopefully, the coaching staff can regroup to rally and motivate the players into a winning season.

    Hi Larry how are you sir? Loved reading thru your website about the current and past stuff in your football life. I’m 47 years old and caught just a little in the tail end of your career but through the magic of replays and YouTube, got to see a lot of your great games and runs. I do a podcast here in the Detroit area thru ITunes ( The PizzaMan Podcast) as a hobby, but take it serious. Would love to have you on a guest and promote your website, speaking engagements and your past games/teammates. Please let me know. Fredi Bello, The PizzaMan


    Thank goodness they were able to find a way to win especially after that slow start on Sunday. Being 3-2 I not bad considering what we are having to overcome. Now it’s on to the Jets and they are never a push over. I hope Cutler is finding his mojo. He looked like he had a little fire fire out there this last week against Atlanta. Hopefully he keeps it burning this week especially considering it’s Jets week.

    How do you feel about the kneeling protest Larry? I myself don’t like it but, I believe it is their right and will still support The Fins. Wish the Dolphins would get back to their winning ways of yesteryear. I have a Csonka 39 Jersey and an autograph picture of the Zonk!
