    Week 1- @ ATL
    Atlanta has an excellent offense and a defense that isn't all that great. Last year Atlanta could not stop the run, and I suspect that will be the key to victory week 1. If we run the ball well, we likely will win.
    OUTCOME: 24-20 Miami

    Week 2- IND
    Indianapolis always has their reliable weapon, Peyton Manning. It's a Monday Night home opener for the Dolphins and i believe the fans will be pumped for the game giving us a HUGE home field advantage. However, our secondary is very suspect and the Colts are no joke when it comes to passing. This one could go either way, but something tells me Miami has a good shot of winning this one.
    OUTCOME: 31-28 Miami

    Week 3- @ SD
    San Diego is a team full of stars. On paper, they have a lot of talent. LT may be passed his prime, but they still have a stud at QB in Phillip Rivers. Antonio Gates, Chris Chambers, and Vincent Jackson are his main targets, and again, could give our secondary major trouble. We will be taking a trip to Qualcomm, and I believe the Chargers will just be too much to overcome at home.
    OUTCOME: 28-17 San Diego

    Week 4- BUF
    Buffalo is a very underated team, but at the same time every year the can never seem to get it done when it counts. They frequently have late game meltdowns and just give the game away. While they do have TO (team obliderator) and Lee Evans, I just don't see us losing at home to this mediocre Bills team. Their offensive line will be a huge part of this game though, if they excel then we could be in trouble.
    OUTCOME: 21-14 Miami

    Week 5- NYJ
    The Jets are a team that has a lot of question marks all over the place. Rex Ryan is a great defensive coordinator, but that doesn't always translate into a great head coach. Mark Sanchez is a rookie who arguably was not ready to come into the NFL just yet. They lost a great WR in Laverneous Coles. They've got a great O-line but I just can't fathom that the Jets will be anything but a 6-10 team.
    OUTCOME: 28-14 Miami

    Week 6- BYE
    This will be helpful, the second half of our season is very tough looking. We will need the rest in order to be able to compete with many of the teams remaining at that point.

    Week 7- NO
    New Orleans is a team that has a high octane offense with a very poor defense. While their recievers aren't all that great out side of Marques Colston, Drew Brees is an excellent QB. Just think if we had taken him instead of Daunte Culpepper. This will be a shootout I believe. In the end though, I think our defense will hold up while New Orleans defense just simply can't.
    OUTCOME: 42-38 Miami

    Week 8- @ NYJ
    It's always tough to beat the same team twice. It'll be midseason and the Jets may have gelled by then. Sanchez could be something special, could be a train wreck. I hate to say it but I think we'll split with them.
    OUTCOME: 17-14 New York

    Week 9- @ NE
    Regardless of how good we are, New England and Miami always play each other well. I think here, they'll get us. Again, i think our secondary will cost us the game. New England's passing game is just too good.

    Week 10- TB
    Tampa Bay completely dismantled their team this off-season. They let go of Derrick Brooks and fired Gruden. While they did manage to draft Josh Freeman, he will not be an immediate answer to their QB woes. They look like they'll be a pretty bad team all around IMO.
    OUTCOME: 24-10 Miami

    Week 11- @ CAR
    This is a Thursday Night game that I will actually be going too. They do have a two headed monster at the RB position with Deangelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart. If we can contain them, I believe we can force Jake Delhomme into some mistakes, which would be huge. Carolina is at home though, and this could go either way.
    OUTCOME: 31-24 CAR

    Week 12- @ BUF
    The Bills definately have the weather advantage here. We always have trouble at Ralph Wilson. Their primary weapon is their passing game, and depending on the wind and weather, that could be irrelevant. Granted, I still believe we split again here and the Bills get us in this one.
    OUTCOME: 14-10 BUF

    Week 13- NE
    As previously stated, we almost always split with New England, and I think this will continue here.
    OUTCOME: 27-23 Miami

    Week 14- @ JAC
    Jacksonville's losing season last year was a fluke IMO. Their O-line has major injuries which hurt the running game and David Garrard didn't have the time he need to be able to pass to his full ability. Jacksonville is a make or break team and I bet this year they will be back to their 07' form.
    OUTCOME: 24-14 JAC

    Week 15- @ TEN
    Tennessee is not all that their cracked up to be. While yes they did have a great year last year, I'm just not sold on their current QB situation. LenDale White doesn't scare me and Chris Johnson coughs up the ball quite a bit if I'm not mistaken (correct me if I'm wrong) I think that we will probably beat them.
    OUTCOME: 23-20 Miami

    Week 16- HOU
    This is the year we FINALLY beat Houston. While Andre Johnson is a monster and our secondary could still not be good enough to contain him, I think we are a much improved team from last year and won't allow another last second touchdown.
    OUTCOME: 28-20 Miami

    Week 17- PITT
    Pittsburgh is hardnosed football team. Almost any other week of the football season, we probably couldn't even come close to beating the reigning superbowl champs. But you have to take into consideration that it'll be week 17 and the Steelers will probably have locked up the AFC North by that time. They will have nothing to play for and there's a good chance they won't even play their starters. This leads me to believe we will get a week 17 victory, and advance to the playoffs, with a wildcard birth.
    OUTCOME: 14-7 Miami

    OVERALL RECORD: 11-5

    While i know this may seem very Homer-ish I have a feeling that Miami has a good shot of having another good season. 10-6 is great, and there's a couple of games on that schedule that could go either way. If we don't catch a major case of the injury bug than I think we will be ok versus some of the toughest team out there. Your thoughts guys? Feel free to bash me.

    It's hard to do these without looking like a total homer.

    Where's the dude that predicted 11-5 last season? He was the only one. I *think* it was Dtronic but I could be wrong.

    I think it's overall a decent prediction for the season, maybe a touch homerish but that's unavoidable. I used yours as a template to get my predictions down.

    Week 1- @ ATL
    Atlanta's crowd is pumped and so is the team for their opener. Gonzalez burns us, and Turner/Norwood break a few big runs. We don't look horrible, but we're not clicking yet and it shows.
    OUTCOME: 24-13 ATL, 0-1

    Week 2- IND
    The Dolphins come out looking like world-beaters and absolutely stun the Colts in this nationally televised night game.
    OUTCOME: 28-10 Miami, 1-1

    Week 3- @ SD
    Chargers too good at home.
    OUTCOME: 17-6 San Diego, 1-2

    Week 4- BUF
    TO and Evans have good days, but Miami's pass rush is good when it counts.
    OUTCOME: 31-21 Miami, 2-2

    Week 5- NYJ
    Sanchez gets thrashed around. Enough said.
    OUTCOME: 20-3 Miami, 3-2

    Week 6- BYE

    Week 7- NO
    We keep up with Drew's crew and that high-octane offense. We eek it out due to it being at home, otherwise, no chance.
    OUTCOME: 35-28 Miami, 4-2

    Week 8- @ NYJ
    Jets still suck. They put up more of a fight, but we sweep them.
    OUTCOME: 20-17 Miami, 5-2

    Week 9- @ NE
    NE kills us. We still can't match up with their O. Their fans stick around for the end of this one.
    OUTCOME: 31-13 NE, 5-3

    Week 10- TB
    A team for us to beat up on after last week's loss. But they hang in there and give us a close one.
    OUTCOME: 23-17 Miami, 6-3

    Week 11- @ CAR
    Carolina's D makes life tough for Pennington.
    OUTCOME: 28-14 CAR, 6-4

    Week 12- @ BUF
    The weather is a tit nipply. Ultimately a defensive game with no TDs.
    OUTCOME: 12-6 BUF, 6-5

    Week 13- NE
    We find a way to beat NE the second time around to keep our playoff hopes alive.
    OUTCOME: 21-19 Miami, 7-5

    Week 14- @ JAC
    OUTCOME: 13-3 Miami, 8-5

    Week 15- @ TEN
    This will be a make or break game for us. I say we eek it out, but it could go either way and I think it will be a close, hard-fought game. Ultimately, I think we'll be able to run on them, so we win.
    OUTCOME: 28-24 Miami, 9-5

    Week 16- HOU
    We soundly put an end to Houston's domination over us.
    OUTCOME: 31-17 Miami, 10-5

    Week 17- PITT
    If Pittsburgh has everything wrapped up by this game and resting their starters, we win and finish 11-5 (and possibly get in the playoffs). If they don't, we lose and end up 10-6 (and miss the playoffs).

    OVERALL RECORD: 11-5 or 10-6, depending on what Pitt does last game

    i personally think&believe we'll sweep both the Bills and the Jets and split with the Pats to go 5-1 in the division and win it again...as far as the rest of our schedule,i think we'll do good...i'm thinking 10-6 at worst,and 12-4 at best...

    That's cuz we all hope you are right.

    And who wants to be the one to underestimate this coaching crew ? Many of us did last year.

    Most of these prediction threads I have seen anyway, have us going 11-5.

    I will correct you your wrong Chris Johnson was not fumble prone.
    1 fumble. Same as Ronnie with more carries and a half yard more in average.

    Week 15- @ TEN

    Thought I'd bump this to see what we all thought. To the guy who said he sees us going 5-1 in the division, It's a strong possibility. I was completely wrong so far in most areas, but hey, it's tough to predict how things will go.
