Miami is a 3 point underdog against the winless Texans

I believe that pretty much says in all in regards to the amount of respect the Dolphins have earned so far in the NFL. Geez, even Hank Goldberg just picked the Texans to win just now on ESPN. Yes, people are saying nice things about the Dolphins and there 2-2 record, but all you really hear talk about is the Wildcat Formation. Both CBS and ESPN were in Miami this past week to discuss the formation with the staff and players.
The league and media seem to want to overlook the fact that the Wildcat Formation only makes up about 10-12 percent of the snaps for the Dolphins in there last 2 games. Forget the fact that Chad Pennington has completed 39 of 49 passes during that 2 game strecth or that the defense for Miami has stepped it up and are now a top 10 defense overall, it all about the Wildcat Formation.
You earn respect in the NFL and media by continuing to win. IF this is TRULLY a solid football team, they will find a way to win against a winless Texans team that probably looks at Miami as the 1-15 team they escaped with a win against last season and once again a team that they should beat.
Time for Miami to continue to show that they are indeed a solid, fundamentally sound football team that is capable of playing winning football.
