    On paper it is but alot of things have yet to happen. FA, draft etc if things go right for Miami that schedule should not be so daunting.

    These toughest and easiest schedule stuff before the season suck. Teams are never what you thought they'd be and vice versa.

    That never means anything. Last year the Colts and Redskins were playoff teams.

    I do find it funny that the Patriots get the middle-of-the-road 14th toughest schedule and the Broncos get the easiest schedule though. With 2 games each against divisional foes, that's 6 games set that probably make the difference ... we play the Patriots twice (hard SOS games for us) and they instead play the Dolphins twice (easier SOS for them). Both teams play the same 4 games against out of division foes, so that's 10 games set. One game each against the teams that finished in the same place in the other AFC divisions, so we get the 2nd place Colts and the Patriots play the 1st place Texans, so there are 3 slightly tougher games for the Patriots with the schedule up to 13 games. So in the end, that leaves only 3 games for the schedule makers to adjust.

    Never paid much attention to this. This is based off last years teams and no team is 100% the same from one year to the next. Look at that stretch of time the last place team in the NFC South would win the division the following year.

    I have no idea what you are trying to say in this post. The schedule makers don't adjust anything. We play the division x2, one entire NFC division, one entire AFC division, and in the other 2 AFC divisions we play the team that finished in the same spot as us.

    Rarely does the schedule cut us any slack. A team on the rise can surprise some people though.

    Winnable games: Buffalo twice, Jets twice, Carolina, Cincinatti, San Diego, Cleveland, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis
    Difficult games: New England twice, Atlanta, Baltimore, Pittsburgh, New Orleans

    Of course alot can change, but this is very reasonable look at it.

    I personally want us to destroy the colts. That was the turning point of the season as far as I'm concerned

    The Broncos have the easiest schedule, but that is mainly because of the cupcakes (Chiefs, Raiders, Chargers) in their division. If you took the Patriots out of the AFC East and put in an average team, our schedule would not be that tough, but that's just the way it goes. We have to find a way to beat the Pats and win this division.

    Let's see how we are/ they are after the draft and FA period. If we spend to the cap like Ross says, and if we do it properly, it won't matter how hard our schedule is. I believe in Tanny to step up in year 2.

    @Buffalo and @ Indianapolis are no gimme games next year. Can't believe Miami is winless vs Indy since they left the AFC East.

    A good team doesn't have to worry about this.

    The Dolphins need to go back winning all of their home games especially in September, and October. When it was super hot, like they always did.
