The importance of a good start
That's not me saying that. That's history.
In the past two seasons, only one team out of 24 that made the playoffs, recovered from an 0-2 start to make it to the postseason.
Kansas City started last season 0-2 and still made the playoffs. Of course, the Chiefs had a quick exit when Trent Green played poorly against Indianapolis. But I digress.
San Diego, Seattle, New Orleans, New England, Indianapolis, Dallas, Chicago and Baltimore all started out 2-0 and went forward. The Jets and Giants, and Philadelphia, started out 1-1 and had a good season.
The point is if it isn't happening for the Dolphins as soon as this week, it isn't happening.
And I can hear you snickering right now. You're thinking the Dolphins stink and this season will prove it.
But I say, maybe not. Maybe the Dolphins lost against what will be a pretty fair Redskins team in overtime while on the road. We'll see.
