Any Given Sunday: Dolphins over Panthers

Three weeks of football, three weeks the Panthers were part of one of the biggest upsets of the day. While Jake Delhomme continues to give the ball away at crucial times, but once again he's stuck operating with just one good receiver. In Miami, head coach Nick Saban apparently acquired a team that was going to make a run at contention without notifying anyone.

I was dreaming when I wrote this, so sue me if it goes astray. But when I woke up this morning, I realized this piece was really late. The sky was full of footballs, Marshall Faulk was running everywhere. Since the Titans play the Rams this week, I know you might really care. Two thousand-zero-zero? Party's over, now it's 2005. But tonight we've got DVOA from 1999. (cue guitar solo)
