The problem with the Dolphins is that they seem to have to rebuild every other year and the scouting seems to suck.

Problem is most Dolphin fans don't live in South Florida and trying to sell out that stadium is tough. The Dolphins don't sell out unless the Jets, Patriots, or a "national" team such as Pittsburgh, Chicago, or Green Bay at in town. The Giants job is definately the better job between franchise tradition, off-field business opportunities, the franchise QB already in place in Eli (the lone bright spot of Big Blue's season so far), the new stadium, and the ego boost of being the head coach of the cornerstone franchise of the NFL.

It starts at the top with Wayne Huizenga. He has cultivated a culture of losing. It's been a disaster ever since he pushed Shula out the door. I have been calling for him to sell the team for years, and I will continue to unitl we win a SB, he dies, or he actually does all a favor and sells- whichever comes first. The man knows NOTHING about football or how to run a football team.

The modern era of the NFL, which started when games were first broadcast in 1956 because the television networks wanted to broadcast the Giants. Through greater coverage their players such as Sam Huff, Charlie Connerly, Pat Summeral, and Frank Gifford became celebrities staring in movies, commercials, and eventually becoming national sports commentators. The Giants were also the first NFL franchise to put their better athletes on defense (Huff, Dick Lynch, Rosie Grier, Andy Robistelli, etc.). Because of this football defense became recognized for the first time anywhere. The NFL's "league-think" socialism mentality would not have happened if the Mara's pulled a Steinbrenner and horded the television riches of the New York (and Boston) markets to themselves. "National Teams" such as Green Bay, Pittsburgh, and perhaps even Dallas would not have survived the 1960's financially if not for the Giants. Because of the popularity of the Giants at this key period in the NFL's growth they were the most important cog in the league's overall success and survival during the league's post WW2 adolescence.

I didn't even mention that Tom Landry (defense) and Vince Lombardi (offense) were the Giants coordinators in that 56-7 rout of the Bears in the 1956 NFL Championship. Those guys kinda revolutionized the game. As well as the mediocre Fran Tarkenton teams of the late 60' which was the first team to invent what became known later as the "West Coast Offense".

Yet they have how many super bowl rings? Face it, football didn't become an every house every person sport untill the late 60's early 70's... when we watch highlights of the best teams to ever take the feild we see teams from that era and modern day, including my Dallas cowboys. When yo think of a Dynasty you think of Emmit Smith, michael Irvin, and Troy Aikman, you think of Tom Brady Bill Billechek and Adam veneiteri, but you don't see or hear, unless you are talking to a Giants fan, higlights or scores from games in 1956.. you can cherish your victories from where a helmet was made out of leather, but football as we all know it didn't come along untll well after that, so if you want to talk about the past we can talk about the past, but that has no place for a discussion about a more valuable and ownable, for complete lack of a different word, football fracnchise now a days...

Don't get me wrong, i think owning the Giants would be more beneficial than owning the Dolphins (YEAHH MATSUI!! SEE YA!!!) ...sorry... where was i? Oh yeah, the G-Men would be a better team to own, basically because of the fact that they are a New York team, (even when they play in New Jersey, but don't get me started on that), and because the New York Media can do wonderful things to a manager and/or owner, as well as rip him apart. Also the fact that they and the Jets do have a new stadium coming helps...

What my message sounded like was a disagreement, and I'm sorry it did, because i agreed with your post, but it just got me a little off beat when you called the Giants the "cornerstone" of the NFL.

I think the first Dynasty ever was the Steelers back in the 70's.

Terry Bradshaw,Franco Harris, Jack Ham,Lambert, and the STEEL CURTAIN! Lynn Swan as the WR...They had monsters on that D-line, and when it came to Superbowls, Bradshaw would pay his ass off.

49niners,Steelers,Cowboys can be considered as Dynasties though.

Ill tell you what, the Redskins look a LOT better this year now that they have a decent QB who will only get better, that allows them to better utilize their talented WR corps. They also have 2 very good RB's, a very underrated TE in Cooley, and a very underrated defense with good, young talent such as LaRon Landry. Fletcher so far has shown to be a very nice addition to their defense.

I guess Gibbs can still coach
