In case you are not keeping track, our Dolphins are 1-2. We started off by playing respectable against the Jets, but we followed it up with very poor showing against the Cardinals. When despair was the only thing we could feel the Dolphins came out and trounced the Patriots shocking the entire NFL.
So, what are we #1 at? We rank at the top of the NFL in the least amount of dropped passes: zero. It is a good feeling to know that the Dolphins are not beating themselves with dropped passes. Gone are TE Randy McMichael and WR Chris Chambers. They would make spectacular catches only to follow them up with an easy drop. Those drops would kill drives.
I think Chad Pennington is part of the reason for our success. He is a very accurate quarterback that puts the ball right where his receivers can catch the ball. Much has been said about the Dolphins inability to gain separation. That is why tight ends Anthony Fasano and David Martin are two of Miami's top receivers. Greg Camarillo has been Miami's bestwide receiver.
Rising up the depth chart is WR Ernest Wilford. In fact, it looks like he's overtaken Davone Bess as our #3 WR. Pennington needs a WR threat and Wilford is a big receiver that could be dangerous in the Red Zone. He is supposed to be a receiver with good hands but does not possess a whole lot of speed. Hopefully on Sunday Wilford will find his place in Miami's offense. He needs to.
Well, if you're on the west coast. It looks like a third of the country is going to watch the Chargers/Fins game.
Once a Loser ...
Ex-Dolphins running back Lawrence Phillips was just sentenced to 10 years in prison for assault with a deadly weapon. After being upset about the result of a pickup football game, Phillips attacked the kids with a car.

Wildcat May Have A New Wrinkle
The Dolphins may be experimenting with that overused term: Wildcat. Ted Ginn, Jr is an ex-high school quarterback and may be asked to throw the rock. Mr "Big Play" is averaging 9.4 yards per catch and that is hardly what was expected when he was drafted last year.
4 Sacks For Joey Porter
Man, what a dominating game Porter had last Sunday. The NFL officials just gave him a 4th sack after analyzing the film from the game. The last time a Dolphin did that was back in '91 when EJ Junior did it. Incredible.
Ricky Has Diaharia of the Mouth
Ricky said this week that he was tempted to smoke that wacky week last weekend. He had too much time on his hands and the pressures in the NFL were weighing on him. It's typical behavior for someone suffering from a chemical imbalance as Ricky does. It seems to me that maybe Ricky does not have to be so honest when posed a question by the media. Keep those struggles between you and the person you use to keep you accountable, Ricky.
