 Mike Pouncey expects Dolphins to be “great”
The players are buying into the system and the changes.

Mike Pouncey expects Dolphins to be “great”
Posted by Michael David

An offseason of high-profile moves has confidence exuding from Miami. The latest to express that confidence is Dolphins center Mike Pouncey, who says he sees his team being not just good, but great.

“I think our football team is going to be great this year,” Pouncey said on NFL Total Access. “We added a lot of key additions to our football team. We look good on paper right now, but it takes chemistry to get where we want to be, and that’s in the playoffs.”

Pouncey specifically cited the defending AFC East champion Patriots as the team with a target on their backs, and Pouncey sounds confident that the Dolphins can knock the Patriots off this year.

“That’s what it’s all about,” Pouncey said. “Everyone wants to be just like the Patriots. They’ve dominated our division for a long time now. If you can go up there and win in Foxborough and beat the Patriots, you’re doing good.”

The gap between the Patriots and the Dolphins has been enormous in recent years. But after four straight years of sub-.500 records, the Dolphins are talking like they think they’ve closed that gap.

What a change of image these past few off seasons. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't enjoying this. Can't wait to see it translate on the field.

No doubt there's reason to be optimistic.............and It's better to have the players confident than the other way around. Let's be real though, it's May, lot's of new players and the Team hasn't even lined up in pads. To go from a decade of mediocre to great in one year might be a stretch.

Here's one of my favorite quotes from Ross...........

"Chad has been the greatest quarterback the University of Michigan has had," Ross told a crowd of several hundred kids and football coaches, "and I'm sure that I a€™m hoping, as is everyone else, that he goes down as the greatest quarterback in Miami Dolphins history and you know what that will mean."

Gee, good thing Ryan Clark didn't sign with Miami.

Try winning a game first...

Chad did amazingly well against Ohio State. For that comment alone , Ross should pay for his upgrades.

That is how I want my Pro Bowl OC to think. I want this team to realize that if they come together as a team, they can achieve the playoffs.

What is wrong with saying that he hoped Chad would be a great QB????
Should he hope that Chad was the next Ryan Leaf?

Ross is an hugely successful Business Man........he should know making a statement there is hope Henne can be the best quarterback of all time drastically reduces his credibility going forward.
