LEMON SQUEEZES OUT AFC PLAYER OF THE WEEK HONORS: The good news just keeps getting better for the Dolphins. First, word comes out that Bill Parcells will be bolting Bristol to join the team as head of football operations.
Now, Miami learns that QB Cleo Lemon has been named AFC Offensive Player of the Week.Lemon went 23-of-39 while passing for 315 yards against Baltimore last Sunday. More importantly, he threw a game-winning 64-yard TD to Greg Camarillo. Most importantly, Cleo led Miami to its first win of the season.
Of course, Lemon led the Fins to some of those earlier agonizing losses, too. But these are happy times at the Stadium Formerly Known As Joe Robbie. No need to snow on Miami’s parade.
The Pats will do that on Sunday.(Then again, the Dolphins were the last team to beat New England in the regular season - in a shutout, no less!)
