    One aspect that has not yet been mentioned is that the threat of #17 running, allowing Ajayi space last year. That threat doesn't exist this year, putting more pressure on the OL, 9 man boxes, more 3 and outs, and subsequently more pressure on the D. So, much as I love the Fish, a lose out is possible, maybe (sacrilege) even preferable...

    I love how everyone writes off the Bucs and Broncos as definite wins...I obviously think we can win any of the remaining games but lets not just say because X player is out for their team that we will win...not a shot...every game will be tough I can guarantee that....also a lot depends on how quickly TJ and Ted can play at a starters level, the injury to Juwan James, and Kiko covering TEs/RBs better than he showed against Oakland (awful)..and can the O line create holes and give Cutler time?

    And one thing about this Miami Franchise is that they play to the level of the opponent, generally. So if people think Bucs and Broncos are poor teams, we'll play to a poor level, and hopefully eke out a win!

    I love this team to death, but I hope we win 1 more max. Need to add some quality talent through the draft and maybe wake up Ross into getting rid of some of our talent evaluators. #tannebaum

    Football Outsiders ranks the Panthers and the Broncos as having the 5th and 6th defences respectfully.

    The Dolphins have played two other teams with top ten defenses....the result...shutouts.

    I really, really do not understand the optimism going into these games. Against the Ravens half their offense was injured and we knocked out Flacco. That didn't seem to help.

    If we don't beat the Bucs in a couple weeks, that might be our last chance for a win. That game is the only real tossup. The rest of our schedule will have us as huge underdogs.

    There's nothing even resembling a lock on the schedule. The bucs, broncos and home bills game are the only ones left well be favored in Vegas. And maybe not even the bills one. 7 wins is the most likely scenario, but 6 or 8 wouldn't shock me. Either way, no playoffs and not a top 10 pick I'm guessing. The Dolphin way.

    So Buffalo is proving to be who I always thought they were, not that good.

    I guess Miami losing 20-0 to New Orleans is not that bad now lol saints on fire and their defense has been playing lights out. My question is where was this vs New England?

    It seems like we always play the Saints when they're having a good season. And lately they haven't had many of those.

    Well they’ve been decent for the most part since they signed brees. Ironic New Orleans is undefeated vs Miami since they got Brees? Last time Miami beat them they had Aaron Brooks at QB.

    They've been decent but they've also had some really bad seasons in the last few years. So I find it funny that the season we play them again they seem to be a contender.

    I don’t see how New England isn’t in yet another AFC title game.

    btw, as of right now, the Dolphins would be drafting 14 or 15 in the first round. As usual, middle of the pack. As bad as I believe our record will be, there will be at least 10 other teams with records worse than ours

    Ozzy rules!!

    It would not shock me one bit if we finished 4-12 to be honest but I will give them the benefit of the doubt and say 6-10.

    Because outside of Miami, the Giants, Broncos, and KC, the rest of the NFL just bends over for the Pats.

    This is how i feel and felt before tonight's game as well. Now watching them get the crud beat out of them. We need to draft O-line so what good would it be getting to 7-9 or 8-8? I see us being 5-11 maybe we win one or 2 we shouldnt due to a bad game by the other team. Who knows for sure.
    I think Gase gets a pass on this season since tannehill got hurt but i can see Tannenbum get caned as someone needs to take the shot for this mess.

    Hopefully none, I want as high a pick as possible and I want people fired.

    Two wins are possible, probably Tampa and Denver. And I don't mean we will beat them.....I'm saying they are the only two we can still win. Tampa can't score either and Denver's slide right now is worse than ours. I can't believe anyone thought we'd hang in Newton's cradle tonight. That was just insane thinking. Thank God this league has the Browns/Giants/49ers and they can take the attention off of how bad this club really is in 2017. We got a couple fortunate wins early on so it made us look more legit. But we're bad - horrendous!

    Blow it up - all of it! Need new everything at every position.....BUT FIRST.....new talent evaluators to bring that talent in. Scouts/GM/VP Ops....start lining new ones up as this franchise is dead and needs a do-over. It's rough talk folks, but it really is necessary. Frankly, no one in our building knows what they're doing or has a plan for getting better. I just see a bunch of players with no rhyme or reason as to how they fit or why we take them? We took a cover corner out of Baylor-a team notorious for not playing defense and we took him pretty early in the draft. He's just.......again.....horrendous and I don't know who's going to make him get better? Got me?

    The OL? Where do we go to get better? Maybe just bring back the OL coach who snorted the coke off the hooker's rear end? Maybe Forester deserves our forgiveness so he can take another crack at it? (no pun)

    Anyway.....a whole hell of a lot to do to make this team even passable in the next few years. Blow it up!!!!

    1 maybe 2. The Dolphins vs Broncos is going to be a snore fest. Tampa Bay no matter who plays QB is going to easily exploit the Dolphins defense. The Bills will crush the Dolphins in Buffalo. The Dolphins may be able to pull the upset in Miami but still doubtful. The Patriots may score close to 125 combined points in both games vs the Dolphins. The Dolphins will have no answer for the Chiefs and it will be another embarrassing loss. So at best this is a 6-10 team. They will have a top 10 maybe top 5 pick. Too bad they have clowns running the team. I could see another 2013 level blunderfest ahead.
