I'd like to congratulate Coach Saban and his staff on what appears to be one of this teams finest drafts in a very long time. We have NEVER had so many players contribute to a season like the newly aquired youth(every player is on our current roster or IR at this time)....I didn't list older vets that were also added that have helped to turn this team around in 2005.

Whether we finish 8-8 or 9-7, we fans have been treated to an undefeated December for the first time since 85, and that's amazing. Plus we could finish this rebuilding season on a 6 game winning streak come tomorrow afternoon.

Here's to a wonderful future for our team!

Happy New Year!

Diamond and Jones arent rookies... but still it was the best Dolphins draft i've seen in a while... Brown, Roth, Crowder, Daniels, Vickerson and Wright have very bright futures, and i think that Alabi will contribute at some point.

Look back at JJ when he first came to Dallas. He was fresh from college and knew where the talent was. Hopefully, we will see another strong draft.
