I know I haven’t been around much. I’m sorry for abandoning you.
You didn’t deserve this…
You see, I was crushed.
When I was a young little football I enjoyed the fruits of Marino to Clayton and Marino to Duper: 20, 30, 40 and 50 yard completions.
I thought it would last forever.
But all good things must come to an end
After 1999 I had a really tough time. No more Marino. It was like I didn’t exist anymore.
I started drinking a lot. Anything to ease the pain. I didn’t want Dolfans to see me anymore.
Sure I made some appearances with Jay Fiedler. But from Fiedler to Marino…well…its just not the same…I’m sure you noticed. And things only got worse.
In 2007 it didn’t seem like things could get any worse. I hit and all time low.
Thankfully Chad Pennington helped me pull out of my funk.
The Dolphins were winning again. They were in the playoffs.
Unfortunately I still had a drinking problem. So every time you saw me I looked like a dying duck
When the Dolfans switched to the strong arm Chad Henne, I thought all my problems were solved.
It was going to be Henne to Ginn deep. No one would stop it.
But Ginn had an affair with the sideline and Henne only had eyes for the check down.
So I abandoned you.
I know you thought I would come back when the Dolphins spent big money on Mike Wallace.
But I wasn’t ready and I stood you up.
But things are different now .
During Sunday’s practice, Ryan Tannehill hit Lamar Miller for 35 yards. I know, I know, that’s a running back. So next there was a 40 yard pass to Rishard Matthews. Followed by another 40 yard pass to Jarvis Landry. And then another deep one to Matthews.
I’m back. I’m sorry I left you Dolfans. Will you forgive me? Will you have me back?
