The 2010 Miami Dolphins' season has been filled with highs and lows, ups and downs, bright spots and dark days.
They began the season 2-0 and 4-0 on the road, including dramatic wins in Minnesota (a four-down goal-line stand against Adrian Peterson) and Green Bay (an overtime field goal by Dan Carpenter).
But they've also lost four games, including all three at home, with the silver lining that the four losses have come at the hands of the four best teams in the AFC—the Jets, Patriots, Steelers, and Ravens.
The Dolphins sit at 4-4 midway through the season and in third place in the AFC East—not quite out of the playoff hunt, but certainly not in good position either.
The second half of the season becomes even more uncertain with a surprising and abrupt quarterback change, as veteran Chad Pennington takes over for third-year player Chad Henne.
It's certainly going to be an interesting two months in Miami, but here are my Dolphins midseason awards for the first half of 2010.
