so i was browsing message boards and i found this about week 1 Dolphins Vs Falcons
i would love to know a fellow dolphins fans opinion on this kids response.. and on the game in general alsoLet's break it down:
QB: john beck vs. Chad Pennington
Pennington doesn't throw picks, but has the weakest arm of any starting QB. Ryan is a star on the rise with a ton more weapons. Give us the advantage.
RB: Turner/Norwood Vs. Brown/Williams
Ricky Williams is getting older, but Ronnie Brown should be completely healed from his knee injury. Turner is a workhorse and Norwood is a big play waiting to happen. Give us the edge again.
WR: White/Jenks/Doug/Finn vs. Ginn/?/?/?
Seriously I can't think of another Dolphin receiver. We meanwhile have a ProBowler, and solid number 2 and 2 guys who can work from the slot. No brainer.
TE: Gonzo/Hartsock/Peele vs. Fasano/?
Okay should've done my research better. Fasano is great, the guy could be top tier if he had a WR who would take some pressure off him. But Gonzo is the best ever. Im man enough to call this a tie.
OL: Us Vs. Them
I ain't writin all those names. Our oline came from nowhere. There's got a no. 1 overall pick and became revitalized. For both lines the running game is a specialty. I'll call this a tie as well.
DL: Us Vs. Them
Still not typing all those names. We got Abe and a bunch of solid not special players after that. Unless of course Jerry proves to be a beast, or Anderson, Davis or Sidbury steps up big. Their line is built on completely different principle do to running a 3-4. Do to Abe I give us the slight edge.
LB: Peterson/Lofton/Nich Vs. Crowder/Roth/Porter/Taylor
Lofton is the real deal. Peterson has something left in the tank, and Nich has potential to be great. Porter put up the sacks, Crowder is good when healthy, and Taylor is a future HOF. I'll give the Fins the edge here.
Secondary: Us Vs. Them
You know who they are. Truth be told I don't like either teams secondary, at least at the beggining of the season. I think our safeties (Coleman/Williams) will be great by season's end. But for now I'll call this a tie.
Well, looking over all the positions it seems we have the edge at the most important positions. Add to that the fact that we're playing in ATL and I say Falcons win a good game. I say 24 -17 Falcons.
