Season Opener- What it says about the Dolphins?
I was excited to turn on the TV and watch the Saints-Vikings contest tonight. Quite the matchup and quite the game!
I wasn't very impressed by the Vikings, although, when Favre couldn't count on anyone else, he hit Camarillo for a 29 yard gain.
Overall, pretty lack luster from Minni.
What really impressed upon me is how amazingly talented and GOOD the Saints are. These guys really have it all together, and it seems as though they play at a whole different speed and urgency than the Dolphins.
It really got me wondering if we are the type of team yet that can compete on that level.
Maybe I've just seen way too much preseason stuff over the past several weeks, but we never have been able to pick up chunks of yardage like the Saints do, and people don't get scared if we are close to the Redzone.
For the Saints, you're just waiting for something dramatic...
Looking at this game made me feel a bit better about our defense, and worse about our offense.
But anyway, I think we have some good stuff going, but we have a long way to go as well to play on that level.
Could we make all those strides this year? Maybe. It all starts this Sunday. Have of winning the race is who starts the fastest.
