    Kenneth Stanley "Bud" Adams! For giving a damn and going George Steinbenner on his entire organization. Thats my vote. Any other opinions?

    I'd have to say Locker, he easily gave us some momentum when we could have just as easily lost it.

    No offense, but what changed? What did the coaches do differently?\


    Nothing...... Except where Gray rested his behind. Bud Adams didnt cause the fumble and didnt return an INT for a TD to put us up quickly. He didnt make Locker come back and scramble to convert some first downs that Hass would not have been able to do.

    Id pick Locker or CJ, or even McCarthy's int which put us so far ahead that the Dolphins had to abandon everything and catch up (sound familiar)

    I under your logic, I really do. It's just that we actually looked like the team that us true fans expected see from day 1. I think that being put on notice makes everyone on edge. Go to work tomorrow and let your boss say improve your job performance or you are fire. You are going to bust ass. Same here. Saying that, I do agree with the players you mention.

    I give it to Munch for banishing his coordinators to the booth ... they seem to do better up there.

    Don't really agree.

    1) Miami made it easier for us. Killed the first drive with the FB run. Bush fumble. Benching Bush when he is clearly the most dangerous player. Penalties. Turnovers.

    2) Locker brought some energy. He made a few nice throws early and made something out of nothing running. That is demoralizing.

    Like a lot of teams, we are pretty decent when things are going our way and don't have a lot of staying power when they aren't. When we can make things go our way more often, we'll be good. When we can learn to compete when it isn't our day, we can be a great team.

    Chris Johnson. Miami has a very good run defense and CJ made some great plays today.

    Definitely CJ and the O-Line for Offense. The Dolphins run defense was completely dominated by them.
    Linebackers for Defense.

    The game ball goes to Akeem Ayers;he caused the McCarthy int and picked off a pass of his own

    Thank you! Someone had to light a fire under these guys. We do not need a guy like Dan Snyder who plays with the team like it is his toy. And we do not need a guy like Jerry Jones who micromanages everything. And we do not need a guy like Ralph Wilson who neglects the team.

    What we needed was exactly what Bud did. Rock the boat and wake everyone up.
