    I know, pretty hard to believe right? I was expecting maybe one or two ticks up... It's wierd having people take the Dolphins seriously.

    To top it off one of the hosts of NFL AM actually admitted that they went over board on dissing Philbin and the Phins during Hard knocks and gave us props while giving some sort of award to Rashad Jones.

    overall those rankings are good, but if i were making a power rankings, the chiefs would have to be last. that team aside from being 1-4, through 5 games they have not had a lead in regulation. ( 1 win vs the saints and they didnt lead until ot when they won)

    It's nice to finally get some respect around here. Even James Walker is giving the Dolphins some praise. JAMES WALKER OF ESPN.

    I hate when we get attention. I really like it when we're ranked #32 and everyone thinks we're a push over and not to be taken seriously. Damn you Philbin and Tannehill

    Here's an interesting look at how this has evolved.

    Preseason:
    27 Dolphins 6-10 Last Week: 28 The Dolphins are excited about QB Ryan Tannehill. But he won't help the team this year. (Walker)

    Week 1:
    27 Dolphins 6-10 Last Week: 27 Start of the Ryan Tannehill era will be rough with no playmakers at wide receiver. (Hensley)

    Week 2:
    30 Dolphins 0-1 Last Week: 27 The Dolphins are in familiar territory: winless after Week 1 for the eighth time in the past 10 years. (Hensley)
    Lost to Texans this week

    Week 3:
    25 Dolphins 1-1 Last Week: 30 Miami hasn't allowed an opposing running back to crack 100 yards in 16 straight games, the NFL's longest current streak. (Hensley)
    Beat Oakland this week

    Week 4:
    29 Dolphins 1-2 Last Week: 25 The Dolphins play their next two games on the road, where they have lost eight of their past 10. (Hensley)
    Lost to the Jets this week

    Week 5:
    26 Dolphins 1-3 Last Week: 29 Ryan Tannehill broke Dan Marino's 29-year-old Dolphins rookie record with 431 yards passing against Arizona. (Hensley)
    Lost to Arizona this week

    Week 6:
    19 Dolphins 2-3 Last Week: 26 Miami is winning battle up front. The Dolphins rank No. 8 in rushing offense (136.2 per game) and first in run defense (61.4). (Hensley)
    Beat the Bengals this week

    It helps to get noticed when your team is fielding Reggie Bush and one of the best looking QBs to come out in the last few years providing you're playing well enough win or lose.

    The media bashed this team during the offseason so much. For example:

    -Marvez laughing at the team on WQAM every week and listing them as #32 in his power rankings.

    -Cole bashing the team every chance he gets.

    -Crowder ripping the team(mostly Ireland because he got cut by him)

    -Schien calling the team a circus, the worst run team in sports and giving our draft a grade of a F.

    -Florio after the Texans loss saying the franchise is so bad that the only thing to do to try and improve it is to fire everyone including Philbin and throwing mega money at Bill Cowher.

    -Wyche saying the team is a "dumpster fire" and that they probably be picking #1 in 2013.

    -Biggane questioning Philbin's character and calling him a flat out liar.

    -Gannon said he was losing faith in Philbin after they signed Chad Johnson in June.

    -Sapp laughing at the team and saying the team won't be able to score on offense.

    -Dameshek on NFL.com said this about the Dolphins: "That team's going to stink worse than the Dumpster behind a South Beach seafood restaurant in July."

    Those are just a few of the anti-Dolphins crowd's comments and views during the offseason. Let's not forget the fans protesting and banners flying over the stadium in January. The team was called desperate by draft gurus in the media for drafting Tannehill in the first round.

    Sorry if I don't feel any respect now for these same people who bashed the team for 9 months that now all of a sudden are singing praise for the team. I like seeing good things said about the team, but I am not going to give any credit or gain any respect for bozo's like Marvez and Schien now that they suddenly are saying positive things. They shouldn't be allowed to get off the hook so easy.
