It is Super Bowl weekend, and the Miami Dolphins are on the outside looking in. While the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs prepare for their Sunday night game, the rest of the NFL takes advantage of the weekend in Las Vegas.

For Jaylen Waddle and Braxton Berrios, that meant a trip to Radio Row to reflect on the 2023 season and set lofty expectations for 2024.

The Dolphins had a championship-caliber team, but when injuries mounted near the end of an otherwise thrilling season, Super Bowl hopes faded. Berrios and Waddle understand the significance of delivering a Lombardi to Miami, which has not won a Super Bowl in 50 years.

“Miami is one of those cities where I believe if you win, everyone loves you, everyone comes, and everything is sold out. Take a peek at the [Miami] Heat and [Florida Panthers]. When they win, it’s the wildest show. Obviously, when we’re on a roll, we have a great time. “Bringing [a Super Bowl win] back to Miami would make us kings for life, and that is the plan,” Berrios said.

Waddle continued, “When we were winning and on the road, we felt like the entire city was rooting for us. To bring back the Bowl would be insane, and we’d definitely be like rock stars after the lengthy drought.”

Following the 1972 and 1973 seasons, Don Shula’s Dolphins won back-to-back Super Bowls. Shula led the Dolphins to the Super Bowl following the 1982 season, and again with Dan Marino at quarterback in 1984.
