Longtime fin phan here, I'm curious what makes us any more hopeful that the Phins will be at least as good as we were last season? And why? Every publication, "our" bloggers at the local miami newspapers, natiional pundits etc all think feel and believe the Dolphins will suck this year. My question is, why won't we suck? Is it Pennington for Yr2? JT returning? better defensive backs? Cameron Wake? Ronnie b healthy after his ACL? What factors will make the Dolphins not a crappy 7-9 team this season? For me, it comes down to our Captain, Il Kapatain, Tony Sparano, more than injuries ever can, as was famously said of Don Shula: "He can take his'n and beat your'n, or he can take your'n and beat his'n" What do we have cooking in Miami, and be objective, to me, we have a top ten offense and a top ten defense developing...but what say you?
