As a privileged citizen of the United States, I believe in the American political system. I believe in voting to voice ones choice in our grand republic.
As a resident of Miami-Dade County and Florida for most of my life, I also believe in voting early ... and voting often.
And so I'm thinking if you are anything like me, Matt Moore is going to be a very humbled man by week's end because he is a nominee for the FedEx Air and Ground Player of the Week honors. As you know, Moore had a career day in leading the Dolphins to a victory over Kansas City.
He completed 17 of 23 passes for 244 yards, with three touchdowns and no interceptions. He posted a quarterback rating of 147.5. Very nice. So you can go right here and vote for Moore to be the FedEx Air dude of the week. You have until 9 a.m. Friday to get your vote in.
He's competing against Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers and Atlanta's Matt Ryan so already he's in good company. I'm sure Rodgers will get a lot of Cheeseheads voting for him. Ryan, I'm not too worried about because Falcons fans aren't always the most interested ardent bunch.
So get to work for Moore. Vote. Vote again. Vote lots!!!
I think it's allowed.
Get a Miami Dolphins player elected to something other than an All-Disappointment or All-Underachieving team.
