    Same here. It's 0% in reality.

    Possibly. But Jimmy G. is apparently the best backup in the world so the drop-off would probably be minimal.

    I'm with Goin' Deep and DuderinoN703, I'm kina surprised it's that high too. We are not going to win the division, and 17% is too high. Now a 1.7% chance I could believe. The kings of our division reign supreme ... our goal this year cannot realistically be to dethrone them, although I'm sure it's listed as one in an aspirational sense.

    IMHO, our goals should be 1) get back into the playoffs, 2) win a playoff game and prove we can compete, 3) win 10 wins again to show that our team actually is good now, it was not just a blip on the radar for one season, 4) improve our underperforming defense dramatically, 5) become a consistently good run team, 6) score more points, 7) lessen our turnovers and increase our takeaways, 8) be able to kill off games, 9) play smart, and 10) Tannehill to make that step from a decent QB to a definitively good QB.

    But winning the Super Bowl or winning the Division ... I just don't see those as realistic goals yet. Although, I'd be happy to be proven wrong.

    I'm looking more at 2018 as our chance to make a leap that big. I think our ceiling next year is wild card, and I'll take that if it means a healthier and more talented team playing wild card weekend. I still believe that Reshad Jones and Maxwell being out was the difference in that wild card game. Antonio Brown just flat out blew us up early on before the Bell show.

    Give me this team healthy and improved heading into a road game on wild card weekend and I like our chances against any team (excluding the Patriots who will be sitting at home anyway).

    17% is actually pretty high, considering who we're up against and the knowledge that the Bills will be better this year.

    Not sure I agree with that. Bills have huge QB issues and actually played very hard for Rex.

    Maybe we got that bump from 1.7 to 17 cause Brady is on a Madden cover. But since it's a contract year and Jimmy is best backup ever obviously they could only go so high.

    Miami has been cursed to be in the same division as New England. Imagine if Miami was still in the AFC South (which it should be)

    Now we're talking!

    yeah I agree though was surprised to see 17% myself but our chances are certainly better than they have been, at least as far as taking care of our side of things.

    If we win the division we can certainly win the superbowl.

    Spoiler alert:

    If China takes over South Beach, Dolphins odds get a substantial boost.

    Also, all Seahawks fans will be Shanghai'd and made to assemble IPhones.

    Ya we should lol I have no clue how the most southern team on the east coast isn't.

    Whatever could've been worse. We could've had to face Peyton and Brady in their primes in the Colts were to stay lol

    This reply was made at 17:00 on the east coast.

    It's 2017

    Holy crap Tannehill, if this isn't a sign that it's YOUR year, I don't know what is.
