The Dolphins won their first game last week against Kansas City after starting the season with seven straight losses.Miami has endured this before it went 1-15 in 2007, which preceded Bill Parcells hiring as personnel chief (he has since retired) and Tony Sparanos arrival as coach.Redskins defensive coordinator Jim Haslett can relate to the Dolphins struggles.Ive gone through that a few times in my life and its a relief, number one to get the first win, he said.During his NFL coaching career, which started with the old Los Angeles Raiders in 1994, Haslett has had a quartet of bad starts. 1995: New Orleans linebackers coach. The Saints started 0-5 but finished 7-9. 1996: New Orleans defensive coordinator. The Saints started 0-5 and finished 3-13. 2007: St. Louis defensive coordinator. The Rams started 0-8 and finished 3-13. 2008: St. Louis defensive coordinator. The Rams started 0-4, Haslett replaced Scott Linehan as head coach and the team finished 2-14.As for the Dolphins, Haslett said: The win they had, that makes them feel much better about themselves.
