Why at 5-3 it's way too early to get all hyped over Miami as a playoff team. In any season. Ever. When we are 6+ games over .500 in late November or December ... then believe the hype that this is a good team. This game (really this season) is a vintage archetype of what Miami has been for nearly 20 years with a couple of minor exceptions. It's like living in a time warp. It's like groundhog day but you can't figure out what's going on and improve yourself. You're stuck in a bad day with no hope of getting any real improvement. It is what they will be the rest of the season. Good one or two weeks. Bad one or two weeks. The team is, shall we say, Philbin-esque? (which also means Wanny-esque and Sparano-esque). And, now, with the loss of Albert and possibly Finnegan ... and the Bills on Thursday ... good grief. It's just getting depressing watching this team decade after decade. Sorry for the rant but this is frustration of decades (not weeks, months or years, decades). It's not just mediocrity but also some terribly bad luck (see the injuries). Still hope but such hope (especially with the loss of such a critical position) is fading fast ... a loss to the Bills could be devastating (we lose and we are ostensibly two games behind them with six to play because of the head-to-head 0-2 disadvantage). Crazily enough, we're behind the entire Central Division!
