    Here's how the Super Bowl applies to the Dolphins plans and thoughts:

    1. Offense wins championships.
    These were the two most old-school teams in the NFL. Two great running backs. Strong defenses. Coaches trusting in traditional means to win. And look what happened. A 34-31 game. A game where throwing again decided the affairs. This isn’t to say you don’t need balance – of course, you have to build a defense. Of course, Baltimore’s defensive stand at the goal line closed the game. But the lesson once again for the Dolphins is you need to score points. They only scored more than the 49ers’ losing 31 points once in 2011 (35 against Oakland). This Super Bowl was the norm, too. In the four games of the semi-final weekend, no team scored fewer than Seattle’s 28 points (all in the second half) in losing to Atlanta. Once upon a time, defense was the blueprint to win championships. Only someone clinging to yesterday still thinks that in the NFL today.

    2. The receiving corps matters more and more.
    Who made whom in this game? Did Joe Flacco make the receivers, as quarterbacks traditionally are thought to do for receivers? Or did the receivers make Flacco the MVP? Flacco had a great game, no doubt. But Jacoby Jones got 10 yards behind the 49ers secondary, came back for an underthrown ball, then beat two defenders to the end zone for a 56-yard touchdown. Anquan Boldin caught a jump-ball pass for a 31-yard catch on a third down. This underlines what everyone knows: Ryan Tannehill needs help. When Tom Brady lost his favorite weapon in Rob Gronkowski, he could beat the Dolphins, but the offense suffered against the league’s best teams. I still think a quarterback can turn an average receiver into a good one, and a good one into a great one. But more and more you see receivers are helping make quarterbacks, too.


    3. The best teams don’t win – the ones that play the best do.
    An illegal formation on the first play of the game by San Francisco? That kind of sums up the 49ers day. San Francisco, to me, had the better talent and should have won the game. But Baltimore played a near-perfect game and executed their game plan perfectly. Both these teams were well-coached. But Baltimore played better this night.


    4. And next year I'm rooting for a snowstorm in New York next year.
    The Superdome is 38 years old and acted every bit of that on Sunday in a power outage of 34 minutes. I’m expecting a publicly-funded proposal to update the stadium come out from the Saints any day now. San Diego, New Orleans and South Florida should be part of any Super Bowl rotation. They’re the best cities for holding Super Bowls. But the stadium has canceled San Diego from plans, New Orleans looks in trouble … and Sun Life? The point is this: the NFL should be helping pay for these updates because these cities are crucial to Super Bowl success. The truth is these renovations are for the Dolphins and the Super Bowl is a shield. As I wrote with the Marlins, Panthers and Heat, the public shouldn’t be asked to keep dumping hundreds of millions of dollars into stadiums.


    5. You’re never as far away as you look.
    Entering the2011, the 49ers were coming off a 6-10 season, didn’t have a proven quarterback and had a new coach and general manager. That 2011 draft, their top two picks were pass-rushing defensive end Aldon Smith and quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Added to what they had their, and adding Jim Harbaugh to the mix, they were on their way. One good off-season can change everything. The Dolphins fans keep hoping for that off-season.

    What I took from this playoffs as a whole is how far the Dolphins are away. Even teams that the Dolphins had played against had clearly elevated their games during the playoffs in ways that I don't think the Dolphins would've been able to.

    And now I see MGM's odds for the 2014 Super Bowl and they have the Dolphins at 50-1 odds, tied with Tampa Bay. Only the Jaguars, Chiefs, Rams, Browns, Cardinals, Raiders and Titans have worse odds.

    Oops. Sorry. Yes the Bills have worse odds than Miami at 75-1.

    So according to Las Vegas, Miami's odds for winning the Super Bowl rank 23rd/24th out of 32 teams.

    By the way, the Jets are 30-1. With Mark Sanchez still at quarterback.

    I think that is accurate. We're at least 20 points a game away from being competitive at that level. I see us needing to upgrade at 6 positions (2 WR, TE, 2 OG, OT) on offense and 4 positions (2 CB, DE, LB) on defense over the 2012 roster to have a legitimate shot at winning the Super Bowl. We're not going to get there in one off-season, even if Ireland hits on every draft pick and every free agent acquisiton.

    Sorry, but it's hard to believe that a team with statistically the worst 4 year QB starter since JaMarcus, a HC who's proven to be more cluless than not over his tenure, which we decisively beat... and that has lost 14 out of their last 25 games is more likely to win the SB. :idk: That's unless they of course find a way to get out of Cap Hell and sign Alex Smith, Anquan Bolden and Wallace among others, as Morningwood does seem to be a decent OC (and HC in waiting?).

    Odds are a funny thing. What was San Fran's odds coming off their 6-10 season in 2010? Or Baltimore after their ****ty 2007 season where they lost to the Dolphins?

    I think it's true that defense no longer wins championships but that does not mean offense wins championships.

    The truth is that the most complete TEAM which peaks at the right time wins.

    When was the last time Miami elevated its game in the playoffs? Certainly not in the last decade plus. I'd say maybe in the divisional round in 1992. And they quickly descended again the following week.

    I'm glad he posted it - saved me a thread.

    CB's and DE's don't matter anymore, period. Aldon got handled and the great 49ers secondary got schooled....and yes I think their secondary is top 3 in the league, maybe the best.

    For the 4000th time we need playmaking WR's and TE's. Gore is a stud - Rice is a stud...they were after thoughts in this game.

    Another 30+ point game...something the Dolphins rarely do....

    Hartline and Bess wouldn't have even sniffed the field in that game. Those WR's are fast, athletic, aggressive, get YAC, and kill to get in the endzone. Crabtree looks like a ******* stud now, love the way that kid plays and did someone give Boldin a time machine pill?? He looks better than ever. His hops, strength, stiff-arm, route running, etc... is amazing...wish we would have brought him in.

    Draft OFFENSIVE PLAYMAKERS!

    i'm sure glad we don't have to beat the 9ers every year to get to the super bowl...here comes a long run for that squad of super bowl invites...even if kaep can't read a defense or throw with anticipation...

    Because the oddsmakers have been so wrong to dismiss the Dolphins regularly over the last 5 or 6 years?

    ck, the only thing those odds can tell you are where teams project as of today without any changes to the rosters. It'd be more concerning if these odds were released near the end of pre-season. A lot will change between the day after the super bowl and the day before the season opener. Furthermore, how ridiculous does that look to have the Jets at better odds than the Dolphins? Kind of hard to take those odds seriously when there should be a lot of turnover in New York...

    the one thing the 9ers need to do this offseason is find just one more defender they can bring in in the nickle and certain packages at safety who can play coverage better than donte whitner...the ravens pass pro held up long enough yesterday for the te's to be able to expose whitner in coverage down the field...he's a liability in man coverage player and coverage period and it was exposed yesterday...

    if i'm the 9ers i would look into trading up for a kenny vaccaro or finding a better option in that rotation...running with the same 11 on the field pretty much in all scenarios is bad when you have a liability in the group...and whitners just that in coverage

    Why even pay attention to NFL odds for the 2013 season at this point? They don't know which free agents will be re-signed, which new ones will come in and what the draft will look like. Waste of time to even glance at Vegas odds at this point. Just like Power Rankings for next year is a waste of time.

    I took away 4 things from the playoffs...

    1) teams elevated their game to a level that Miami is still no where near. We are trying to reach the level these playoffs teams were at during the season so to hope they do that AND raise their game to another level for the playoffs is asking to much from thsi roster and team, especially from this GM.

    2) Miami lacks DB Playmakers, DL playmakers, WRs, TE, O line and one of the most important ones, playing lights out defense with 8 minutes or less left in teh game and making sure you pull this victory out. Miami cracks on the last 8 minutes on defense dating back to the 2001 season.

    3) These teams showed that 1) they have a good defense and 2) they can score at WILl and make plays when there is nothing there for them.

    4) you need a team where the defense is good enough to keep the game in check and the offense is good enough to drop 35 pts a game if need be. The days of scoring 13 points and giving up 16 to win are long gone. All these games were explosive games. Knowing Ireland and how he "addressed speed" last time around when we were desperate via drafting Gates and calling it a day, I can see Miami signing 1 WR with speed and assuming the rest is history we are SB bound. We need a #1, a #2, and a TE that is very good. He wont get all 3 you can count on that.

    When the 9ers were at the 5 yard line in the final 2, I thought to myself if this was the Miami defense that the 9ers were up against, all they would do is a QB Draw and the QB would walk in for the TD because Miami has given that easy play up for a loss maybe 6 times in the last 5 years. Ravens CRUSHHHHHED the 9ers on the run and plays sound defense.

    You know why its worth a look? Because they know Miami wont do anythign that will make them a top 6 team in the NFL. Thats all that matters at the end of the day, being in the top 6, not the 7-9 we are showing progress in the NFL crap we hear all the time since 2001.

    They have NO IDEA what the team will do this offseason, neither do YOU. It is pointless to waste your time with vegas odds for the next season in early February.

    Kaep next year will NOT have the year he had this year.

    Just as Vick hasn't since his return, just as Young never did after his, as Newton hasn't, as teh WC died, etc.

    Once a team like the ravens figure out how to play against a specific type of QB, the rest of the league copy cats it and it usually ends that players career. Kaep can be good, but he wont be this Madden video game player he was this year just as Vick hasn't even come close to that since his great first year back run.

    I had the same impression, that the playoffs verified we're not even close. San Francisco and Seattle were far more advanced than we we faced them. I don't think we had another gear.

    Keep in mind the whistles are swallowed in the secondary yet these teams still put up bushels of points. We have trouble scoring during the soft rules interpretation of the regular season.

    I agree with Hyde that San Francisco seemed to be the better team. Among a sample of 10, I'd suspect they would win at least 7. I lost a bet on 49ers -3.5 but was thrilled the Ravens won. I'm a huge Ed Reed fan. His post game interviews on CBS and NFL Network were terrific. Last thing I wanted was 49ers to win but not cover, which nearly happened. Besides, the haters would have been out in force if the Ravens had blown that game. I could sense all the partially written threads, the ones attacking Ray Lewis. It would have been like the jubilation when Lebron James lost to the Mavericks two years ago. Lewis would have been mocked, and proclaimed the goat of the game. I don't like Lewis' post game themes, and I have no idea what his involvement was 12 years ago. But I don't like vehicles for the simplistic haters. It was marvelous when they were denied again. It's been a rough stretch for them, given the Heat title, election results, and now the Ray Lewis ringed send off.

    I wouldn't put much stock in futures odds, at least not the number itself. They might be useful in teams in relation to each other, from a perception standpoint. But futures odds these days are notoriously low. You could probably double or triple every number on the back end to have a better feel for actual likelihood. Sportsbooks were burned big time by high odds on the 1987 Twins, and later the 1999 Rams. Those examples caused casino owners to demand less risk. Why give bettors 200/1 when they are willing to take 40/1 on the same team? You always have a steady stream of tourists walking into a sportsbook with their little crumbled sheet of paper, rescued from grandma's purse. Uncle Fred wants $20 on the Cubs and $20 on the Bears and $20 on the Blackhawks. You could punch out a 2/1 ticket on all three and nobody would care. They'll take it home and happily present it to Uncle Fred, who will happily accept the paperwork and root them in.

    Among everything a sportsbook does, there is less sophistication in futures odds than anything else. There's no power rating that makes a team 20/1 instead of 30/1. It's merely feel, and a determination to keep everything low. Numbers move down all the time, but seldom up. Some joints never move a number up.

    The sportsbooks had avoided being burned on high odds for quite a while until the Cardinals won the World Series recently. They weren't high odds to begin with, but when they were in bad shape late in the season some joints that maintain adjusted numbers assumed they had no chance and moved them way up, to 500/1 or beyond. A few guys took advantage of that and cashed big tickets. The chief Nevada oddsmaking firm sent out a related warning subsequently. A friend of mine who works in a sportsbook emailed me a copy of the memo. It basically screamed at the sportsbooks to follow the suggestions and not take things into their own hands. In other words, don't risk anything.

    Well yes, alluding to the Jets being 30-1 favorites vs the Dolphins being 50-1 favorites, they have been wrong.

    Its common sense actually, this team lacks so much talent taht it doesn't matter what they do this OFFSEASOn, they need more than 1 offseason to accomplish that.

    Have you taken an outside look at this roster rather tahn that of a fan?

    Burnett and Dansby are old, they are getting slower, they are not playmakers, they don't create they dont make game changing plays or impact plays so that right there hurts us, our DB are atrocious and that means all 4, you think MIami will replace 3 new CB? No. Clemons is as useless as they come. thats 5 DBs.

    Misi is good vs the run and useless in every other phase of the game. How many times did you hear Bowmans name yesterday ? More in 1 game than I have in Misi or Burnetts tenure in Miami combined.

    Our pass rusher is Odrick and Wake is getting old.

    We need 2 GOOD GOOD WRs and 1 decent one because to me, bess is a #4 trying to be a slot WR which he can't do because of his lack fo speed, playmaking, and everything else required to get something more than a 1 yard RAC.

    Our RB situatoin is a disaster outside of Mller. Thomas is a barbie playing football and Bush is likely gone.

    Our TEs, 1 has an egg as a brain the other hasn't had 1 catch over 10 yards all year and hopefully is gone.

    Our O line needs a VERY GOOD T, a LG, and a RG.

    Now you think you can fix all that this year? Good luck this **** ain't Madden, its reality. People think its so easy to become good and a powerhouse. It is probably the hardest thing to do and Miami fans take it like we are 1 WR away from being very good.

    The 9ers came back from behind to win the game or a chacne to win the game after being shut out 17-21 pts a couple times. They started to score when teh defense took it down 1 notch and the 9ers played desperate. Untl they become desperate they are conservative and less explosive.

    They scored because of good field position as well. The ravens on the other hand were bombing **** up left and rght as they have done consistently.

    The ravnes also blew out the pats last round, does ANYONE here remember hte last tiem Miami Beat NE by more than 3-7 pts? And we are contenders now if we get a #1 WR? Oh please. This team does NOT have the mental make up of a champion. You want an example, take a look at Smith and Clemons. Have you seen 1 player on both of those defenses in the SB that has such a fear of hitting or even tackling someone? Nope. GOOD teams have GOOD players from A-V and solid players from W-Z. Miami has good players from A-H and the rest are somehow employed.

    the ravens problem on d which luckily didn't end up biting them in the rear in this game was they have no consistent win edge pass rusher...haven't all year had one...have to blitz to get pressure...krugers the best guy at this stage but he's not a consistent win guy...he'd look good in miami as a #2 rusher though...suggs looked like a shell of himself coming off the achilles which i guess is to be expected...

    surprised san fran didn't win more downhill in the running game...too much pistol imo although i understand why so much it helps kaep make easy reads against one on one looks an allows for him to see the guy open before he rips it...but i would think more i form downhill blow you off the ball with a lead fb would have been the way to go for san fran...

    I already have an idea of what our team will be next year. I mean, how different has it been the past 9 years? No different at all, all of our GM's have sucked major ****. Until I see there's going to be change then I'll believe it. But until then, the Vegas odd's is on par with the past decade of Dolphins' football.

    One of the most exciting offseasons in Dolphins history is on the horizon imo. Like you said the team already has the QB in place, now they enter the offseason with $45+ million in cap space, 5 draft picks in the top 82, a new logo/uniforms and a stadium renovation on the table. Fans should be excited.

    I love your analysis -- it is almost exactly the same as my own. We're short 20 points a game in being competitive at this level. I see us needing to upgrade at least ten players to have a shot at winning a Super Bowl. You are 100% correct when you say this can't be fixed in one year. Even if our GM hits on every draft pick and Free Agent signing we'll still be 4-5 player upgrades short of being competitive at the Super Bowl level.

    One thing I do take away from that Super Bowl is how raw the quarterback prospects were when they first started. I don't think Flacco would be the quarterback he is if he were the quarterback of New England, those receivers he has make him look that good.

    We need to do the same to Tannehill because he too is a raw prospect with all the talent you need at quarterback. Give him real playmakers. Bess and Hartline wouldn't even play a down for either team yesterday.

    We don't have a single playmaker on offense with Bush likely leaving to another team. Not a single one.

    There's nothing exciting about the Dolphins. 4 straight losing seasons and the same GM that doesn't have a clue what a skill player looks like is still in charge.

    Can someone explain to me what a new logo, updated uniforms and a stadium renovation have to do with winning football games? After all, winning football games is what this is supposed to be all about.

    Miller is replacing Bush(if he leaves) and he has the POTENTIAL to be a playmaker. Ireland is likely going to add a front line WR in free agency(probably either Jennings or Wallace) so things can certainly improve fast in the playmaker department. The Dolphins have a lot of resources this offseason to surround Tannehill with playmakers this offseason. Can't wait, exciting time to be a Dolphins fan.

    It is part of the offseason, which is what I said. Didn't say those things would win football games. The parts where I said the QB is already in place, $45+ million in cap space and 5 draft picks in the top 82 will help in winning football games.
