Six Reasons the Dolphins Big Win Sunday Wasn't a Fluke

Page 2 of 2

1. Lazor Savior! Pheww, phewwwww, phewwwwwww! The Dolphins finally have a competent play-caller.

Ahhhh, it feels so good watching the Miami Dolphins run an offense that doesn't look like it belongs on ESPN Classic. Bill Lazor updated the Dolphins offense software Sunday, and the result was an exciting, fast paced, thirty-three-point performance. I'm as shocked as you. After years of suffering through 16-13 games for what feels like forever, Dolphins fans saw a team that actually looked like it has a chance to be, I mean, dangerous on offense? Weird.

2. Knowshon Moreno runs like a razor covered bowling ball rolling down a hill.

Whenever your team cuts a guy fans have nicknamed "vagina feet", the next man up will most likely be an upgrade. And upgrade, Moreno is.

Moreno dick-punched Patriots in his path all day Sunday, on his way to 134 yards and a touchdown in his Dolphins debut. Dolphins players were in awe of Moreno's intensity, and found it contagious. As long as Moreno stays healthy, the Dolphins have finally found a back that blends the ability to break a big play, with the tenacity to run a guy over. Moreno is also a hug upgrade in pass protection compared to what the Dolphins have had in recent years, something that showed up big time Sunday, as the Dolphins gave up just one sack.
