WATERCOOLER CHAT: DOLPHINS CLINCH AFC EAST, LIONS MADE HISTORY

On Vacation this week…..back on Monday Jan. 5th. Enjoy the Weekend Wild Card Games

NFL

Darius Rucker, lead singer of Hootie and the Blowfish used to sing about the Dolphins making him cry. Well, not this season. After a 1-15 2007 season, the Dolphins under a brilliant executive vice president of football operations Bill Parcells,  clinched the AFC East title with a 24-17 defeat of the Jets. Dolphins QB Chad Pennington was under a tremendous amount of scrutiny and pressure this season and particularly in this game as he was released from the Jets when they brought in QB Brett Favre from the Packers. According to ESPN, before the game Chad told his teammates that he loved them. All Dolphin fans are loving their team today as well….particularly my buddies the two Michelles.

Oy, the Detroit Lions did it….they made history with a legendary 0-16 season. With a 31-21 defeat at the hands of the Green Bay Packers, the 2007 Lions have secured their place in history as the first NFL team to lose 16 regular-season games.

In Dolphin/Lions news, there is report this morning that Bill Parcells may leave the Dolphins and look for a job…possibly with the Lions. The Lions already fired head coach Rod Marinelli after three seasons with the team.
