    (Could someone sticky this?)
    In light of recent events, I thought it would be interesting to see which fans were opitimistic, realistic, and pessimistic. And to do this I think a season prediction thread with everything up in the air would be a terrific start. I don't know if Muck and da boys could give out a gift or anything, but the winner should have the pride of knowing (good record that is, and displeasure for correct horrible record) that he was correct.

    Okay I'll kick it off,

    11-5, too many distractions and a young line, plus new offense is too much to overcome for a better record, but things pick up at the end of the season and our boys make a push.
    I am unable to make a playoff prediction, because I am too biased, and optimistic.

    I didn't make this a pole because I wanted fans to be accountable for their predictions, this makes it more interesing I think, besides I don't think I could make a poll large enough for all the possiblities.

    10-6 or 11-5

    We will either make the playoffs or barely miss them.

    4-12 - 6-10

    We wont have any Running game and our passing will remain as bad as it has been for the last 2 years.

    11-5 You should make this a poll, and give the different records as options. It would be interesting to see how people vote.

    Unless we get a solid RB to replace Ricky, 9-7. If Wannstedt goes 11-5 with this team, then we should give him an extension because he worked a miracle.

    Thats what I thought. Lets TRY not to be as blindly (and insanely) optimistic as the Jest fans.

    i was going to say 9-7 with ricky, now i say 4-12. i think this is the year our defense hits the wall. behind our defensive line we have some age and its going to catchup this year.

    i predict after this year, madison is gone, knight is gone, seau is gone, thomas will play 1 season after this.

    Gotta say we will go 9-7. I think too many mental mistakes (i.e GD penalties, and turn overs will prevemt us from getting into the playoffs). Dave Wannstedt is a good man and fine human being, BUT his teams are to undisciplined. Just remember how many stupid penatlies we take including countless 3rd down conversions tha we give b/c of a penalty. Wannstedt (who I like as a human being) is our downfall this year. The RW debacle will be a bad memory, but I feel will not be our undoing this year.

    11 and 5 at least. We still have our D, and boston has to make a difference. whoever we run won't have to face that many 8 man fronts, that's for sure.

    Before Ricky abandoned us I was thinking 12-4. Now my prediction is 10-6, but this time we make the playoffs as a wildcard.

    I've podered this all year, and with RW's insane actions, here's my opinion!

    The Fins will unite as a team like we haven't seen in along time. Now that the old reliable RB who's going to win it all for us is gone, the rest of the team has to play much better. These guys got sh## on and that will make the difference. I see some close games early, with the defense carrying the load, while the offense gets their timing down. Once the offense gets in gear things will roll well, with both sides feeling the mojo. :cool: Special teams will be an impact throughout, both ways, and the Fins finish with a 12-4 record, surpising everybody. :eek:

    Oh by the way, the stars are aligned exactly as the were in 1972, just a little early. We have about 15 months of pure excellence before us! :D

    Fins rock, period. No 1 player can change that. Review the '72 season and understand, the stars don't lie :D

    I know this sounds crazy :goof: But I'm gonna have fun despite the negatives. :shakeno: I'm too old to think any
    other way. Besides, this should get a few laughs, and we all need that right now :cry: Bless all my fellow Fin fans, and may we be happy with our goal to root for the next championship team :tongue:

    p.s. If I spelled something wrong, please forgive me! I have no playoff predictions at this time, but will say this, I'll always be a Dolphin Fan to the max, and hope they do well every year. If they only win 8 games, may they sweep the Bills, Jets, Pats, crush the Browns, and absolutely destroy the Steelers ( they are the most arrogant a$$h0le fans in the world) (and their too stupid too know it).

    I hate to be a foolish optimist, but we have done better with worse talent on the offense with practically the same defense and HC. Granted the OC is new and that worries me a bit but, I gotta say 11-5.

    The Dolphins will unite as a team and play for their pride and work even harder than previous years. Thats why they will go 11-5.

    10-6 or 11-5. I don't think Ricky will be missed as much as some think. I keep going back to 3.5 ypc last year. We can get that from almost anyone we choosed to start.

    As much as I hate to say it, you could be right. However, it's the '72-'73 consecutive win record they could break, which is 19 to tie and 20 to break.
    Just like the Bears in '85, it could come down to a game with the Fins to see if ya got what it takes. It won't get to that point :shakeno: and if it does, that record stands :lol: On a better note, the Pats have done great as of late and deserve the rings. Not this year Pal :shakeno:

    Before Ricky left us I was saying 12-4.

    Now that he's gone, I will say 9-7 sadly. :cry:

    10-6 remember how well we did before ricky came? our offense is better than it was 2-3 years ago. I know thats still to be determined but im confident in Feeley, our o-line will be at the least decent, and Minor w/ someone to split up the carries will get us through.

    Hey, had to find something positive :D Not much of that going around lately. Too many folks have already pulled a Ricky this season. Not you, but way too many. I never quit, and never will :evil:

    10-6 if our o-line and Feeley turn out ok.

    12-4 if our line is OK and Feeley absolutely rips it up and surprises us all

    9-7 or 8-8 if Feeley is a bust and our o-line doesn't gell.

    But if I was a betting man, I'd say 11-5 or 10-6.

    I still think we're 10-5 when we play the Ravens, I just can't call that game, but I think we make the playoffs either way. So, 10-6 or 11-5.

    Im optimistic about our record but Not so about our playoff chances, I just havent seen the afc east get weaker and if 10-6 wasn't good enough to get in last year.........?

    But my prediction is 11-5. I really think this team has a chance to prove people wrong.

    Exactly. We were 11-5 on DW's first two years here. Then RW came along and we went, what, 9-7 and 10-6, no playoffs. This year's offense has way more talent then the Lamar smith days IMO. Another note: How do you guys think our opponents game plan against us looks now? :evil:
