Once upon a time the Miami Dolphins were a good team. Not only were they a good team but a perennial contender with a Hall of Fame Quarterback and receivers with names like Mark Clayton, Mark Duper, Jim Jensen and Nat Moore. Like Crockett & Tubbs those glory days of the Dan Marino Miami era are long gone and Dolphins fans know it’s been a while since their team was even competitive. Only once in the last eight seasons has Miami had a winning record. This season projects to be no different. In fact many feel that come New Year’s Eve the Dolphins will sit alone in the basement of the AFC East. With a first time head coach, a rookie QB and from what “Hard Knocks” has shown, a shaky roster who could blame anyone for having a dismal outlook for the Fish. In this new Dolphin era all the eggs lie in the Ryan Tannehill basket. The rookie’s performance this year will set the tone for the franchise for the next few years so why not get the guy some help? But where can you find good help these days? Eleven-year veteran Jabar Gaffney was just cut by the New England Patriots.
