Most of the time, pop culture jokes about bad football teams are usually only reserved for really bad football teams. The Dolphins are not a bad football team, and yet they are the butt of a joke in a new movie.
As explained by Omar Kelly from the South Florida Sun-Sentinel (through Sports Business Daily), Tomorrow’s War contains multiple cracks in the recent fortunes of the Finns.
“So, will the Miami Dolphins ever win the Super Bowl?” asks Chris Pratt’s character at one point in the time travel movie.
Later, after Pratt’s character returns from the future, the character played by JK Simmons asks, “So what was the future like? The Miami Dolphins still suck?”
As Kelly points out, other teams would fit the joke much better. Teams like the Lions or the Browns or the Jets. Indeed, the Dolphins are getting competitive and they still have more Super Bowl trophies in the case than the Bills, Jets, Browns, Bengals, Titans, Jaguars, Texans, Chargers, Eagles, Vikings, Bears, Lions, Saints, Panthers, Falcons , Seahawks, Rams or Cardinals.
