    The defense sucked last season and the season before that. The offensive line has always sucked and they will continue to suck again while getting Cutler and Moore hurt in the process. The schedule is tougher than last season in which we barely beat a bunch of bad teams. I can't see how we win more than 5 games. And 4 of those wins I'm counting against the bills and jets.

    Anything is possible. My outlook on the season isn't anywhere close to being as bad as yours. We'll see.

    I still believe we can get off to a 3-0 start, how bad is New Orleans this year (7-9 last 3 years), maybe 4-0?

    Yes the starters gave up a 36 yard td drive to the offense that was the best in the league in 2017, with the td coming on a 20 yard 4th down conversion. Yes that is indeed a sign that the defense sucks and the season is over. Pack up the trucks let's all go home. :)

    Miami in 1972 lost their starting QB (ended Undefeated, and won a SB), last year the Patriots were going to have to go 4 games without Tom Brady (Reached, and were gifted with a SB by the Falcons), last year Miami started the season 1-4 (Reached the playoffs).

    Am I saying this Miami team is as good as the 72 Dolphins, or last years Brady led Patriots, or even that the schedule this year would be as easy as last year? Probably not, but when you have a good to great HC, you actually get through it, and we are about to find out the hard way, how good Gase really is.

    Miami losing some key players is tough, but they still have a lot of talent to still get through it if Gase is the real deal, now we learn if this is just us assuming, or if we hit the lottery when we got him last year.

    Over before it started. Ugh. Being a lifelong Dolphin fan has been a constant letdown.

    You never know what will happen during the season.

    And if it is going to be a long season, I take that to mean it will be more than 16 games...such as a playoff game or two? :)

    Are these crying tissues or private moments tissues? Just need to be clear before I ask for one.

    What's the bad news sunshine?

    You could be right, but as a fan, i'm at least going to wait until they lose the games to be let down.

    It's unrealistic to expect a SB, might not even make the playoffs. I'll be excited just to see improvement and see our team competing and trying to win. IF Gase is what we think he is then we should be competitive with Cutler and/or Moore. It was doubtful that we make the playoffs even with a healthy Tannehill.

    No because we lost our starting QB, LG, the rookie I was most excited about seeing play this year who we needed desperately to pan out at MLB and our star battering ram RB to a concussion (and we know how those go)....in about a 10 day span and it's week 1 of the preseason. Not to mention we are running a guy out there who barely played last year - who was retired and came back for the money.

    Sugar coat/ dismiss it all you want but this is beyond worse case scenario for the beginning of 2017. Just being real

    That's a tough blow losing McMillian. Yep, just a rookie LB but the love our coaches were sharing about him leading the defense...it's going to set us back a notch. If we want to be a contender this year, the defense has to be drastically improved. Losing our MLB certainly is not going to help that cause. Any word who coaches have hinted at for MLB? Hull moving up? Timmons moving over?

    Winning is more about the front office and coaches than the player's. We won the super bowl with that formula years ago and are about to find out if we have the right formula again. I am still optomistic as last years roster was trash IMO and we did pretty well. This years roster IMO is still much better than last year's even withb all the injuries. Count me in on the next chapter on ehat happens next with the fins.

    No i feel this way because the o line sucks and it all starts up front. Who doesn't agree that the line is a weak spot on the team? The plan for the center is to not have him practice in hopes that he may last the season. What a complete joke. If he was on the patriots he wouldn't be on the patriots cuz they would have found a player that could actually practice. We lose our starting MLB who by the way was a 2nd rd pick. The team does not have enough talent to lose players drafted so high. just because the team beat a bunch of garbage teams people think we are better than we are. I'm a fan and I will always root for Miami but IMO it's more of the same crap just a different year

    Search the waiver wire or trade for a garsh darn MLB NOW while it is still pre-season. No throwing in the towel this early.

    HOPE..that's all we have right now. Hope that the Oline plays well. Hope that Pouncey remains healthy. Hope that the defense improves. Hope that the new QB doesn't suck and his attitude changes. I hope that we can make the playoffs I really do, but we can as easily go 7 and 9 this season and it won't be a surprise.
