This year is going to suck. A lot. In many ways. I suspect that we'll see plenty of threads each week about just how bad each game was and how much different things could have been had we drafted this player or not cut that player. Fair enough. I understand the need to vent. For my part though, I my aim this year is to endure the pain and focus instead on the positives. To try to learn as much as possible about what we DO have. The past is done. We don't get any do-overs. Cuts are gone. Draft picks were used. We are where we are. That's not to say there won't be trade demands and other things that surface. Things could get really ugly, and I'm not sure what to think about any of that just yet. I'll have to deal with it as it comes. Of course, maybe what we DO have is also horrible. Maybe the coaches, players and everything else are pitiful and the Dolphins crash and burn in their entirety. I don't know that either - so whatever happens I aim to watch and see what happens, see what we've got. To that end, here's my hope and desire for the forums during this season - to see whatever nuggets of information, rays of light, silver linings, you guys can spot as we go through the storm. I don't pretend to be a very knowledgeable person when it comes to the details of football. There are many far more knowledgeable members on here and I really appreciate being able to come on here and learn, as well as throw out questions and see what comes back. This season especially, what really interests me is the idea of being able to see through all the debris of a disaster season to spot the good, the highlights. Obviously there's no way to guarantee that, or make it happen, but consider this my request to any and all members here. Please share whatever positive thoughts, or even just constructive criticism on here. It's going to be a long season, but making some discoveries along the way will really lighten the load, and help pave the way to the possible future of Dolphins football. Thanks for listening guys. I'm looking forward to wading through this with you guys and finding at least few bright spots in what's going to be a dark season. G.
