Half a century.
It is a long time. An achievement. A milestone. The Miami Dolphins celebrate their fiftieth year as an NFL franchise this season.
Christmas Day Game. The Undefeated Season. The Hook-and-Lateral. The Fake Spike. The Wildcat. So many great memories. Wonderful people took part in those memories: Shula, Langer, Csonka, Wakefield, Scott, Duhe, Marino, Clayton, Moore, Taylor, Taylor, Thomas and far too many more who deserve mention.
This season should not be about the past though. It is about the future. A bright future. This season will be about Tannehill, Suh, Landry and Wake.
This season should be about a quickly ascending 4th year quarterback hitting his stride. It should be about a ferocious defense being led by one Ndamukong Suh. This season should be about making that next step.
No this season should be about making a giant leap.
It all begins Sunday at 1pm as these Dolphins face the Washington Redskins.
Time to make new memories worthy of this franchise.
