ESPNs Tirico Excited About Dolphins MNF Matchup

Bess [1]The foundation was set last year with the arrivals of Joe Philbin and Ryan Tannehill.  Add a deep-threat receiver to the mix, a handful of potential difference-making defensive free agents, not to mention a new logo and new uniforms, and the Dolphins are nothing if not intriguing heading into the 2013 season.

You see it reflected in the team’s schedule, released Thursday night, with the inclusion of three primetime games, including two on ESPN’s Monday Night Football.

So how will these new-look Dolphins react when the bright lights are turned on?

Count Mike Tirico as one of those who is curious. The ESPN play-by-play man points to Miami’s contest at the Saints, the Dolphins’ first primetime game in 2013, as one of the Monday Night matchups that “jumps out” during the first half of the season.

“I’m really interested to see Sean Payton back with the Saints, and Miami was so aggressive in the offseason. I know from the ownership and GM level, and the head coach, there’s a lot of enthusiasm about the Dolphins, and that’s one of the key mileposts in their season.

“Do their additions give them enough to go into the Superdome on a Monday night and play well? We’ve seen that is very hard to do.”
