    I disagree with their pessimism. Do you feel it likely that we would possibly not makes the playoffs after all the FA pick-ups so far?

    We were semi-close to being in the playoffs last year. Now we're stacked on playmakers.



    We'll be one of the AFC contenders :brewskis:

    They're saying that b/c we really haven't changed the roster all that much. We signed 2 LBs to replace 2 very capable LBs that we already had. We signed Keller to replace a capable TE in Fasano that we already had. The only upgrade so far is Wallace (which we highly overpaid for, but i'll keep my comments to myself) but we've also lost a starting CB, a starting RB, and have yet to bring back Long or replace him. So we still have a LOT of question marks.

    The national media forgets we lost 2 games because of missed field goals last and could have very easily been 10-6 with a few breaks. The AFC is tough and we'll have our work cut out for us, but to say we don't stand a chance is BS

    We're in the middle of Free Agency, the draft is coming up, the first down hasn't been played yet, AND we're not making the playoffs?

    That's just among the most dumb-assed things I've heard so far.

    I'm sure they all pegged Seattle to make the POs, let alone take it as far as they did too right?

    Based on what? A couple days of FA moves ??? How about we finish FA and then the draft, then how about seeing how camp and pre-season goes, etc. etc. Who cares what they say. IF we do well, there will be dozens of reporters coming out saying how they said to watch out for us this next year. . . . Monday morning QB's to the nth degree.

    It's up for grabs. You figure New England will still be favorite to win the division. Most people are giving Houston the south, Denver the west and Baltimore still favorite in the central. That leaves San Diego, Miami, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati and Indy fighting for the two wild card spots. Miami will be in the hunt.

    Three days into free agency and media are already writing us off? Even after we have already made some of the biggest splashes in the market? Before free agency is even over? Before the draft where Miami has stockpiled a lot of high draft picks? Funny.

    And they didn't overpay for their receiver, but we did..... even though they're basically the same contract.

    the Phins will compete for the division and the wildcard. The Pats took a step back by signing Amendola over Welker and haven't made any other real moves since then. They have 5 picks (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 2- 7ths) and limited cap space. Meanwhile, the dolphins have made some big upgrades, have cap space to work with and 5 DPs in the first 85 picks. When all is said and done we could have a formidable team. I'm not looking at wildcard, i've got my eyes set on the division!

    Wow, they can make that prediction without having a clue who will be on the opening day roster. Impressive! I saw the segment, Dukes thinks Wallace doesn't care about winning. Time will tell!

    Well we have a really tough schedule. If Tannehill can give us over 25 td's and 10 or fewer interceptions, we have a good chance. We play a lot of teams with solid QB play, and it really comes down to our defense and Tannehill's improvement. My best bet is hoping the Patriots fall off big time, but as long as they have Brady, it won't happen.

    Is divisional champs to lofty a dream even if we makes all the right moves in both FA and the draft - can we beat the Pats in other words. Too lofty a hope?

    with younger, speedier LB'ers who are better in coverage than Dansdy and co. we should match up better with the Pats (mainly their TEs). we still need some good CBs among other things but if we construct our team the right way we can be better than the pats.

    It's like the Lakers, Yankees or Celtics - we can't say we're better than the Patriots until we beat them. Until that happens they are on top and Miami is chasing..

    Do you want the truth or do you want a thread where everyone agrees we're winning the Super Bowl and Ireland is a genius?

    I'll phrase it this way: Are the Pats concerned (in your view) of the real posibility that we might take the top spot in 2013?

    Don't you think there's a Rosie O'Donnell ***-sized gap between merely making the playoffs, which we damn near did last year with a plethora of holes on the roster, and winning the Super Bowl?

    Who on here is complaining about an analyst saying we have no shot to win the Super Bowl?

    Well, our season win over/under will probably be 8 with juice on the over. Perhaps 8.5 with juice on the under, if we make further moves in free agency and the draft that are positively received.

    That's an uptick but it doesn't equate to playoff likelihood. We'll certainly be underdogs to make the playoffs on opening weekend. The media normally falls in line with the consensus.

    The ones who have been most off base for years in regard to the Dolphins are the pollyanna fluff types, where every move is celebrated.

    BTW, for anyone who wants to bet into those season win props when they are released, keep in mind that the Las Vegas sharps who prioritize and pounce on those things are looking to bet under, under, and under some more. You literally hear under at least 75% of the time when talking to them. If they bet 10 of those props, it's likely that 8 will be unders, if not more than that. It's exactly the opposite of the public, which fixates on the over. I tried to make that point to the guy who jumped on the Dolphins over 7.5 last season. Unless you're 100% sure, or don't care, it's best to wait instead of jumping on an over.

    If you add up every season win number for every team, it comes out to far above the total number of victories in the league. That's amusing every season. There are 256 games but the over/unders will add up to 265, if not more than that. The public happily ignores that penalty while the wise guys are always looking for the bonus 2-4% edge.

    BTW, one time Greg Cote in his preview column came out at roughly 272 wins for the league. He was assigning an extra half victory per team than was possible. :lol:
