Game day against the Chiefs

First things first: Some of you may have read my article today in which Jason Taylor talks about retiring.

He is considering it and I am told that unless the Dolphins right the ship and start winning -- even this year -- he will seriously consider quitting after THIS season.

We'll see.

As for today's game: Daunte Culpepper is inactive again and concern about his health continue.

I believe you'll see a more confident offense early today based on last week's success at Chicago. It will be interesting to see if the Dolphins can have some early success to bouy that confidence and allow it to continue throughout the game.

OK, let me know what you think at halftime and after the game. And watch how Taylor dominates again today.

So far so good - I'm looking at the body language on the field and it looks like there are some solid signs of these guys playing like a team. We finally connected on a big play to Chambers and Ronnie is getting in to a flow. As long as the defense holds up we should come away with this one.

It was nice getting another win, but we need work on that offensive line. To much pressure on Harrington . If we cannot protect, or give time to the QB, his accuracy will be for shit.

Defense... what can anyone say. Yhey did a great job pressuring Huard, and disecting his offensive line. Jason Taylor, what a day for him. Taylor was phenomenal, he made the key pass blocks, and tackles that kept us in the game. Others did do well in this game, such as, Brown, Bell, Holliday.

We just cannot keep defense on the field 75% of the time, and after halftime there was absolutely no offense. I do not blame Harrington alone, though he does need to step up, but the line as well. The team is showing signs of coming alive, but we cannot wait till mid-season for them to do this.

This is torture. Another year in which the season is effectively over by November 1st, yet, we soldier on gallantly for just enough wins to put us in the middle of the pack come draft day. Don't get me wrong. There's a big piece of me that's thrilled they are winning. But think about it. How many years can we be oh so close. Years of starting out hot only to fade in December in unprescedented ways, followed immediately by the reverse, losing it all right away and then getting hot. Are the gods still punishing us for that 17-0 season?

Bell looks very confident at safety...I was very impressed with him. I'm glad we gave him a shot to see if he is a long term solution, so far he has passed the test. Some of the play-calling double-reverse and HB pass were unnecessary. Joey threw no INTs. ONLY 1 PENALTY for 3 yards! Finally we are doing the little things right. Defense was terrific. 2 Down, 7 to go. Hopefully we can keep this effort up!

I get sick of people rooting for draft picks. If a team I am a fan for ever subscribes to defeatism for the purpose of a higher pick, I would quit watching. Even in 2004, I wouldn't trade that win against the Patriots for the #1 pick in the 2005 draft. Saban has the team without one draft pick next year. We have the most picks, especially in the first 4 rounds, that I can remember in a long time. That's what matters. We can find quality players anywhere in the draft, and that's whats important. Great win today, and I hope we keep winning, playoffs or not. I'd hate to see us fold, cause a lot of these players will be back next year. Defense is playing tougher than I've seen in a long time. Secondary is coming together very well.
