Marshall doesn't need you on 'Fins bandwagon

The Giants might be favored by 10.5 points, but Brandon Marshall still has faith in 0-6 Dolphins' chances. (US PRESSWIRE)

Posted by Ryan Wilson

For not having won a game this season, the Dolphins sure are in the news a lot. After Sunday's inexplicable loss to the Broncos, Reggie Bush said what everybody was thinking: "this team stinks." That prompted teammate Yeremiah Bell to proclaim that Bush "stinks" before Bush could again reiterate the obvious: "I still stand by it, because there's nothing fun about 0-6."

The Dolphins travel to New Jersey to face the New York Giants this weekend and as you might expect, everybody expects them to lose. (Perhaps more embarrassing: only one out of five CBSSports.com experts thinks the Dolphins will cover the 10.5 point spread.)

Miami wide receiver Brandon Marshall, who promised to play like a monster against the Jets two weeks ago (if if the plan was to be a no-catching monster then mission accomplished), has issued a warning to those who still don't believe in Miami (pay no attention to the 0-6 record).

"To: Media When we win Sunday please don't say the Giants didn't take us serious."

As PFT's Mike Florio points out, Marshall says "when we win" not "if we win," and presumably he means it.

But you know what? Miami could pull off the upset Sunday. And before you say it, yes, the Dolphins could win if: an asteroid hits the Giants team bus, Eli Manning only throws passes left-handed, Ahmad Bradshaw moonwalks instead of runs through the hole, and Miami gets 12 downs instead of four, unlimited timeouts, and interceptions are considered incompletions.

But look at the Dolphins' schedule through the first nine weeks of the season. The Browns beat them by a point and under no circumstances should they have lost to the Broncos. A 2-4 record may not impress a lot of people, but it beats oh-for-'11. 

(Also: the Eagles are 2-4 and still considered a playoff team. Clearly, Philly's better than Miami but the point remains: a few fluke plays and unlucky bounces is the difference between 2-4 and the Dolphins' current predicament. Well, that and some suspect coaching, but you get the point.)

It's worth mentioning that in Week 5 the Seahawks came into MetLife Stadium and beat the Giants, 36-25 (and it wasn't even that close). This is the same Seahawks team, by the way, that managed three (!) points against the Browns last week.

So let's just say the Giants aren't mortal locks this week … but it's close. (Side note: we actually picked the Dolphins to win. No, seriously.)


The Miami Dolphins are still searching for their first win as they prepare to take on the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium on Sunday. NFL.com's Pat Kirwan and Jason Horowitz preview this matchup. Watch the game on CBS at 1 PM ET.

If Brandon Marshall is the face of your team: You have biiiig problems. If they do not get Luck, these guys are looking at ten years minimum to make the playoffs. I thought Marino was going to make water into wine, part the seas etc. What happened Fins fans?
