The Top Five (2/16)
1.) Greg Cote Is Not A Real Blogger!
The Herald’s Greg Cote wrote a blog yesterday saying that D-Wade could surpass Dan Marino as Miami’s Sports King (Cote). In my blog from Sunday night, I merely stated that Wade is just beginning to approach Marino’s stratosphere as a Great Player. But never did I say Wade would end up bigger than Danny. For that to be the case, I’d say Wade would have to win five to six championships, ala Michael Jordan, just to enter the debate. That’s just the way it is. This is a football town and it will take a whole-heck-of-a-lot to dethrone Marino as South Florida’s Greatest Athlete. Cote is WAY off base here. And judging from the reader comments, I’m not the only one who feels this way. (That’s why blogging should be left to the bloggers and not to professional columnists … you just know Cote and dudes of his ilk hate websites like the MSD. Hey, Cote, get off of my cloud!).
2.) Trade For Culpepper?
No, I don’t want the Dolphins to trade for Daunte Culpepper. Not only did Pep have a horrendous season last year, but he completely blew out and shredded his knee and will enter training camp a gimpy QB, which is the last thing we need. I’d rather we made an aggressive push for Brett Favre than bring Culpepper down here. Besides, you just know Minnesota is going to ask for way too much and, frankly, Pep is not worth anything beyond a 2nd round pick right now. Is he an improvement over Gus? Of course! But he's not worth what the Vikings will in all likelihood ask for in return.
3.) Go After The BIG Guy
I’d love to see Ty Law down here. BUT, you know he’s going to cost too much. Instead, as the Jets begin to release top players to free up cap space, we should go after the best center in the NFL – Kevin Mawae. Not only would he be a top-notch anchor for the offensive line, giving whoever is at center down here plenty of time to throw, but he would also give the Fins the flexibility to go another way in the draft. Ask Zach Thomas how he feels about Mawae. No one else would give Nick Saban a better scouting report.
Incidentally, did you read Law’s comments on how he feels about the Dolphins? This is what he said, “ … if the Dolphins get a quarterback, they're a real contender for the Super Bowl. That's what it's all about for me right now. I need to win another title." We even got Ty hatin on Gus Frerotte (just hope Mrs. Frerotte doesn’t get wind of that comment). Boom Goes The Dynamite!
4.) WARNING: Band Wagoners Ahead!
The Heat start the second half of the season with a pretty cake-walk schedule (New York, Seattle, Toronto, Boston, Atlanta, Charlotte, Washington, to name a few). I bring this up because they should start off the second half of the season red hot – which will bring the band-wagoner Heat fans out of the wood works, which is always a lot of fun to watch. Of course, the band wagon will crash, explode and burn in a massive ball of fire and carnage should they lose at Detroit on March 22nd. Ya gotta love this town!
5.) MSD's Dolphins Off-Season Coverage
Be on the lookout for our Dolphins Off-Season coverage starting in early March. We will be covering everything we possibly can when it comes to Free Agency, Roster Cuts and, the Big One – the NFL Draft. And much, much more! We hope you’ll dig in and read our stuff as our staff will be working hard to keep the buzz rollin and we hope to inspire some healthy debates on The Forum.
