    Can't say I'm surprised with that prediction. I really hope this schedule turns out to be a little easier (like last years) once we get into the season. Tell ya what pisses me off...go read Seattle's prediction. Couldn't have played out better for them!

    Predicting this far out is useless.

    I was considering that this could be a tiny accurate ... Until I scrolled down and saw he predicted Buffalo 4-11-1 ... Who the **** predicts a tie?? They are extremely rare and no way you can predict that this team is more likely to tie than that team. Credibility out the window.

    I find that these schedules are off about every year with teams that are projected to be tough suddenly bottoming out with a injury hit in the preseason etc. Usually I am pretty willing to throw the phins into that bunch of teams of unpredictable but after watching Gase pull off those games for wins last year and this years improved draft. I would say 8-8 will be on the low side and 11 -5 more predictable. I was pushing a 6-10 record on the high end prediction at this time last year

    Very possible that we could play better and have a worse record than last year

    STRONGLY disagree with the predictions for Denver and Kansas City. I see both struggling to win 8-9 games. Oakland should have that division clinched with a few games left to play assuming Carr has no setbacks.

    Those will be two huge games for us. Probably the difference between the Dolphins being a wild card team or not.

    They are really trying to make the NFC south seem much stronger than it is...I like a lot about the Bucs, but they are still a year away...Carolina is not as good as they seemed to be two years ago, but not as bad as last year would indicate.

    The West is not on the same level it was 2 years ago...but it should be Raiders and the other teams with under 10 wins.

    I think 8 wins is our floor and 11 is the ceiling. Gase isn't Philbin, we will not lose games we should win and we will also pull off a few surprises. I don;t see any reason why we could not be 5-0 going into Atlanta and 7-3 going into the bye. Tough final 6, but split them and you should be in playoff position.

    I truly hope I'm wrong but I see 8-8 or 7-9!!!...either way I'll be at every home game or in front of the tv on away games rooting for a Fins victory! Can't wait for the start of the season, I'm even excited for the pre-season this year!! I think they have a very tough schedule this year...3 road games in a row at LAC, at NY, at NO (London) then home the following week is going to be a test. Love the fact we are getting a night home game this year against Oakland!

    The Chargers sure beefed up their offense this year. Added Dan Feeney AND Forest Lamp as well as WR, Mike Williams.

    6-10 in 2017 - then we go after some more talented OL, LB and DL in F.A. and the draft. We'll have to spend money, but it's fixable.

    ^^^ id take the over on that bet.

    I think alot of fans are alot more willing to buy into the hype on other teams than they are their own favorite team, for various reasons.

    My take is the team should be good enough to start winning some of these games where folks see the Instant L on schedule. 5 losses total.

    Sounds right to me. You guys picking low numbers of wins need to factor in the coach. No way he has a losing season and we'll probably be fighting for a playoff spot in the last few games again.

    we started last year 1-4 and could have easily have been 0-5. New system, first time HC. Too many duds starting the year like Mario Williams, Jason Jones, Earl Mitchell & Billy Turner.

    Mike Pouncey missed the first 4 games.
    DeVante Parker missed the first game and was not healthy for the first several games.
    Branden Albert was not healthy until mid-season with the knee.
    Jordan Cameron was out after game 3 and learning a new system.
    Ajayi was not being utilized.

    And then we went on a 6 game winning streak. No reason we can't start there.

    Pouncey might play the first four games this yr, but my over/under on him is 8 games tops.
    Parker did miss the first game, but he put up 8 for 106 against NE in Wk. 2. And had decent game with a TD in Wk. 3.
    Losing Cameron didn't mean anything. Sims and Grey played just as good, if not better.
    Ajayi needs to stay healthy from day one, cuz he's going to get used a lot!
    Bottom line is, while I'm as happy as the next guy, and think Gase is the real deal, we beat one team with a winning record on that run. Not trying to play Debbie Downer, but it'll be tough to go 10-6, even though I think we've gotten better personal wise. Last year's schedule looked brutal on paper and some breaks went our way....hoping for the same this yr. I sure as hell hope we dont get decimated with injuries like last yr.

    Id go range it from 7-11 wins.

    BTW who predicts a tie (Bills record) lol so stupid

    And 3 teams from the same division all going 11-5 lol AFC West is a solid division but what??

    That's almost impossible for 3 teams to finish 11-5 in the same division.

    I've never seen it lol

    If we start 4-2 and end the season losing 7 of the last 8, this team and Coach Gase will be in trouble.

    The Fins will be better and more complete.
    11-5 including a split of the Pats.
    If we can host the wildcard game, anything can happen.

    We are NOT losing 8 in a row down the stretch...not with Gase running the show.

    While I think we win more than 8 games, the logic and reasoning behind his analysis is solid.

    It's easy for an "outsider" to expect us to prove it where as from a fans prospective I'm expecting us to prove it.

    To me "strength of season" means nothing. It's some statistic drawn from last year not taking account for a quagmire of possibilities. Weather, injuries, and the bad nights rest on a strange bed. You have a better chance trying to figure out "the roll of the football". If this team is coached well and prepared it'll do well, if it's not it will continue to be 500 and the story.

    Regardless you have to get off to a 4-0 or 3-1 start to the season. Miami has been terrible in the first quarter of football and then down the stretch when an injury or two hinders the team there is no margin for error.

    Miami hasn't been good out of the gates for years and it always puts them in a game of catch-up. Good teams don't play catch-up if Miami wants to be considered with the Pats, Pitts, etc...they need to win early.

    There's no reason that Miami can't make it back-to-back playoff trips. I'm going to be optimistic and say 11-5 and a wildcard. New England probably goes 14-2 so catching them likely won't happen this year.

    The big thing for the Dolphins is they know who they are. They have an identity. It took the team until game six last year to find that. Miami is going to pound the rock with Jay Ajayi and if teams commit eight players to slow that down, the Dolphins have the talent in the passing game to go that direction.

    I believe the defense will be better. I'm concerned about the wide 9, but I wouldn't be surprised to see that modified a bit and maybe used mostly on passing downs.

    The play of the linebackers against the run should be much better with Timmons and McMillan added. There's more depth and talent on the defensive line, though I am concerned with defensive tackle opposite of N. Suh. Jones is back in the secondary and there's some talented young corner who could take that next step.

    This should be a good year for the team with maybe one playoff win.

    I think the Chargers had one of the best drafts. Added maybe the top receiver with Mike Williams, then got the top two guards with Forest Lamp and Dan Feeney. Then they got a huge steal in round 5 with Desmond King. Not sure they have the coaching to challenge in that division, though.

    A number of teams are in the pool where games can go either way, so injuries luck and the ability to avoid costly mistakes will decide a lot of games. It's just a guess at this point to try and say how those close match ups will go.
