    ESPN: 4 things were learned about AFC East, phins a headache to play

    No. 3: Dolphins are a headache to play

    The Miami Dolphins are rebuilding this year. But they are playing very hard every week and it finally resulted in a victory Sunday. The Dolphins beat the Cincinnati Bengals 17-13 on the road to improve to 2-3. Miami is below .500 but proving to be a tough team to play. The Dolphins are the type of team no one likes to face. They have a physical defense, an improving offense and rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill is getting better. Two overtime losses may have Dolphins fans wondering what could have been. But it appears the Dolphins are learning from their late-game mistakes. Miami has a chance to get to .500 for the first time this season when they it hosts the St. Louis Rams on Oct. 14.

    Surely James Walker was crying while admitting the local team is better of what he would have expected.

    He insists Miami is rebuilding and I would say yes, but this team is using a "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" style, where a bunch of workers and quick building techniques create a new home in a week.
    I mean if things keep moving like they do today we could expect to see a contender team in the next months.
    Of course the biggest task will be to concrete some key contract extensions, including: Jake Long, Brian Hartline, Cam Wake and Randy Starks.

    Yeah "Finally" resulted in a win as if that was Miami's first win of the season.

    Dolphins will finish second in the East this season. The Bills and Jets are garbage.

    if you are a fan based on wins you can`t be a fan. you should route for the pats they win a lot. being a finfan has more to do with the tradition this team represents and the history it carries.

    The winning tradition, right!!!!?

    I agree with you but let's not pretend we're not proud of our tradition because it was a very successful one!

    Of course ESPN is dumb enough to not know we've been 0.500 this season already once...

    What's funny is the insta-backpeddle from all of the commentators.

    Look...They commentate. It's what they do. We pay them to do it.
    Everyone has realized that the Dolphins are a few bounces/players away from
    being important, and that's why the teams under us have been put there.
    We're moving in the right direction. The others aren't.

    Thanks Shifty!
