Before this season started 'most' experts around the league, mock drafts, etc. had the Miami Dolphins drafting in the number one spot. Meaning, they all thought the Dolphins sucked and were the worst team in the NFL. Well, so much has changed since then and even ESPN, a network that obviously dislike the Dolphins, is starting to give them a little respect, basically because they have to the way they've been playing lately. NFL RANKING through week 8 1. Falcons 2. Giants 3. Texans 4. 49ers 5. Bears 6. Ravens 7. Packers 8. Patriots 9. Vikings 10. Steelers 11. Seahawks 12. Broncos 13. Eagles 14. Cardinals 15. Cowboys 16. Dolphins Currently, the Miami Dolphins are ranked #16 on ESPN's list. However, I happen to think the Dolphins stock is on the rise, while others stocks are on the decline. I personally think that the Dolphins are better than the following teams, because I feel they are on the decline while the Dolphins are improving. Here are a list of teams I feel the Dolphins will climb past in the coming weeks; Ravens, Patriots, Vikings, Seahawks, Eagles, Cardinals and Cowboys. If I am correct, that would make the 2012 Miami Dolphins a top ten team. I think a game ball is deserving to Coach Philbin and his staff for making the Miami Dolphins a respectable team so fast. I thought it would take a few years but it only took Philbin a few weeks to get respectability back to Miami.
