Like many, I like to stay optimistic when it comes to the Miami Dolphins and based on the way this offseason has gone thus far, I see nothing but good things coming out of Davie, FL recently. But, what I wanted to say is that I notice that some fans keep trying to compare us to the San Diego Chargers of last season.
However, I think we are shaping up to be more like the 2004 Atlanta Falcons. Think about it for a second. Like Atlanta, they're long time head coach resigned in the middle of the season and they lost they're star player to injury (not the bong, like Ricky). The following offseason, they hired a new head coach who brought a new energy to the organization (like Saban) and implimented a new offensive attack that included a devastating one-two running back punch in TJ Duckett and Warrick Dunn (like Wiliams and Brown) to compliment a solid defense.
I'm not saying that the Dolphins will go 11-5 and reach the conference title game like the Falcons, seeing that we still have some holes. But, we will be improved and I just thought it was something to think about on a boring Monday afternoon....take it for what you will.
