Hungry For A Championship
Well, Fin-atic...I think you have inadvertently touched on something of a truth.

LOL! The problem with that is football players are not heros. They are just athletes on a team. They are not better than their team. I don't need a hero at QB to make me feel good about the Miami Dolphins. There are real heros in life...but, not on the football field.
I don't worship Dan Marino and never have. He was a great player and should be honored for his ability. That's it.
The Dolphins are the only team to go undefeated. They did it with a no-name defense and weak armed QB. The best team that functions as a team is the one left standing. They are not heros. They are just doing their job.
