If our Dolphins earn a victory over the Saints this Monday night, do you expect the national media to give our team some respect?
I personally do not expect any change. Too many bradys out there.
If we win on Monday night, we will get more coverage and props than we have gotten since 2008. That I guarantee you.
if we win we will get our due, no question
Just picturing Monday night, you are going to hear about Katrina, about it being the 8 year anniversary of Katrina, about how great the Saints have been post Katrina on MNF in the dome and about the Drew Brees 300 yard streak and about Jimmy Graham. On top of being the only game on in primetime . . . I think if Miami goes into that place and comes out with a victory . . . the national media will have no choice but to throw some respect towards the Dolphins. Sure some people will still pick the Ravens the following week . . . but this game is the type of game where a team wanting to take the next step in showing off how far they have come can actually do that in front of a nationwide audience.
And if we don't win, who cares about what the media thinks . . . that has never been a problem for me and that won't change now that we are 3-0. I just want to exit this game healthy and knowing that we put up a good fight, win or lose.
I think that even with such a giant win over the Saints, that the national media will say that it was a chance occurrence that we won Ė that we really didn't beat them...that they beat themselves in other words.
we have got respect this week and if we beat the saints in NO we will get a lot more - I dont blame people for backing the saints to win
not sure why all those threads about respect are being made this week... I went on every major sports site and ALL of them have multiple pieces about how the Fins are for real.... am I missing something here?
Respect is honor. Honor is an acknowledgment of not only quality but of character. Character is most definitely a mark of a champion. So respect, even though it may seem insignificant, is worthy. It is important. At least that's my angle.
4-0 is all I care about, could care less about the media's respect!
