First of all, I know there are a lot of new threads and some probably very similar to mine, but I just have to get this off my chest. I also know it's only week 1 and a lot can happen over the next 16 weeks. That said, why is it that every year, we appear to have 1 facet of the game down while EVERY OTHER facet holds us back? For instance: 80's & 90's - Dan Marino and the Dolphins passing game are truly unstoppable but without a running game and/or defense, they are unable to get over the hump. Late 90's early 2000's - Jimmy Johnson comes in and builds a Super Bowl caliber defense only to see Dan Marino retire and the Dolphins pin all of their hopes on Jay Fiedler (offense lags and is just not good enough to move past the 1st round in the playoffs). Early 2000's - Wanstedt decides to mortgage the future for Ricky Williams. Still a great defense, now great running game, no help with the passing game and Wandstedt runs Ricky into the ground pushing him to smoke more pot and eventually retire (yes, I made that part up). 2000's - The Dolphins have a pound the rock mentality with Ronnie Brown and a renewed Ricky Williams, defense is getting younger but way behind and guess what, the Dolphins have yet to find a QB. 2011 (this one is a stretch b/c I know it was only 1 game) - If the trend isn't bucked, the Dolphins have their franchise QB in Henne, have a strong WR core, NO RUNNING GAME, and the defense is overly inconsistent. Can one GM / Coach put together a complete team? It's been basically 40 years now and it's becoming harder and harder to put up with this garbage. Unfortunately, I'm a die hard so I will never quit on my fandom of the team, but it's just too frustrating.
