    I know some people don't really like to do this but I thought it would be both fun and interesting to see what you people thought about our overall record this year.

    I say we will go 10-6. We will either have the same record as or be 1 game behind the Pats for the division lead. You guys saw how many teams didn't make the playoffs in the AFC last year who were either 10-6 or 9-7. So I am not about to predict the playoff scenario! I do know this:
    Ronnie Brown will prove to all naysayers that he can carry the load and be an elite back in the NFL.
    Culpepper will struggle slightly in the passing game until he learns the receivers and they learn him. I know this sounds obvious but he hasn't exactly been able to put the ball in the end zone consistently in the preseason.
    Our defense wil struggle in the (especially the DB's) beginning of the season and then be a dominant force as the year goes on.

    As far as the 10-6 record I predict, here are our losses- Pitt, at NE, at Chi, KC, Jax, at Indy

    One more thing. Did anyone see the catch Chambers made in the back of the end zone on last Thursday night. They called it back due to offensive interference but MAN, he knows how to go after a ball!

    Please reply with your predictions for the season record. Talk to you at the end of the season. GO FINS. I hate the friggin Pats!

    Dolphins go 5-1 in the division and 12-4 overall.

    We'll beat two of JAx, KC, Chi . Those teams are very overrated.. With that said, we'll probably lose one against the bills and another team to compensate.. Say what you want, but somehow I think we'll lose one of the 4 games vs the bills and jets.. Those teams come to play us very hard and always seem to get 3 lucky bounces just when you think they're out of it .

    It's like the movie fatal attraction, we haven't swept both teams over the last long while. They just never die

    We won't lose to Kansas City. I also doubt we'll lose to Chicago. As good as Chicago's defense is, they can't score. We'll be able to outscore them.

    I say the Phins will go 11-5 coming up 1 win shy of the Patriots at 12-4. I think Miami and NE will split home games. NE's schedule is a joke...

    Folks, why does everytime a prediciton thread come up, we lose against all these pretty good teams. We have to beat a Pitt, or an Inday or KC to prove something. I mean I could see us losing to the Bills and beating Indy, I mean it happens like that . . . yall making our team sound sucky by saying we gonna lose to every body who is good and beat all the teams we supposed to beat. C'mon fellas.

    I agree about Chicago but I'm trying to be real and not say we are going to win a insane amount of games. I'd like to think we could go 13-3 but the team will probably disappoint if I say that

    6-10, no playoffs and the fans are out for blood!

    So I'd say we're somewhere in between these two scenarios. :)

    Maybe that's why I keep thinking we go 8-8 this year? :confused:

    I don't see us losing to Indy the past two years they have locked up home field advantage and are playing their backups by week 17

    Right, this is what I say:

    Sep 7 @ Pittsburgh W
    Sep 17 Buffalo W
    Sep 24 Tennessee W
    Oct 1 @ Houston W
    Oct 8 @ New England L
    Oct 15 @ N.Y. Jets W
    Oct 22 Green Bay W
    Week 8 BYE
    Nov 5 @ Chicago L
    Nov 12 Kansas City W
    Nov 19 Minnesota W
    Nov 23 @ Detroit W
    Dec 3 Jacksonville L
    Dec 10 New England W
    Dec 17 @ Buffalo W
    Dec 25 N.Y. Jets W
    Dec 31 @ Indianapolis L

    -----------

    Facing alot of teams this season with NEW head coaches, meaning NEW systems being brought to them. For most of these teams, this will be a rebuilding year or just another bad year. This season should be a cake walk. I predict the New England Patriots to go 12-4 as well. We have a fairly easy schedule.

    I also beleive that if we are 9-7 with Gus Frerrotte, then we are 2-3 games better with Daunte Culpepper in his first season in Miami; 3-4 games better in his second season.

    Yes, good point.. BUT, will losing Edgerrin James still allow them to afford that luxury in week 17 ?

    I think you're right. While at a glance, many would say that Chicago would win and I think I did at first. But when you break it down I also think what gives us the edge is our passing game. I don't think that their running backs will be all that successful against our run D and while our pass D is a question mark right now, so is their passing game, probably more so than our pass D. I don't think Ronnie will have a huge game rushing against their great run D (I hope I'm wrong). Their pass D is good one but not necessarily great. With McMike, Chambers and the rest of the receiving corps along with Ronnie catching passes out of the backfield, we have the edge. With short and underneath passes and an occasional long ball to keep them honest is where I believe we will have success in that game.

    The Jax game is going to be a good one. Two great teams are going to being going at in and it could be the difference between us getting into the playoffs and them going to the playoffs at the end of the year. I think they will have an 11-5 record and so will we.

    What?

    So your saying that Miami will go 4-0 then finish 7-5 :shakeno:
    I got to say that would be crappy. I pick, 13-3 loosing at NYJ, and NE with our last loss at home agianst JAX. While I'm at it (Nov 5, MIA 12 CHI 6) nothing but FG's.

    9-7 or possibly 10-6. We could sweep the Jets but something tells me with Mangini over there he'll win one of those games. The Jets usually get us for one a year.

    Dolphins schedule broken down:

    At Steelers (The Leadpipes will be a dogfight but this accomplishment will be huge with this one on the road in the season opener, this one is very hard to call but, I think this one is a win). WIN 1-0

    BILLS (The BiLLLLygoats defense will keep it close but, I see a win here regardless the Goats will struggle and we win by a TD). WIN 2-0

    TITANS (The Oilers will keep it close but, the Dolphins are a much better team than the Oilers). WIN 3-0

    At Texans (This may be another dog fightwith the Cowheads and we will win by a slim margin). WIN 4-0

    At Pathetics (The reign will be over this year. The Pathetics lost a boat load of star players on their team, who used to be gamebreakers AND playmakers, without them, they are a shell of team they used to be. Their QB is good, but Troy Brown can't do it alone and he is getting old. The running game will suffer as well with their OL problems and Corey Dillon not as he used to be. The rook will struggle as well. The secondary and LBing core is not at all what it used to be either. But the Dolphins will not win this one in Patsieland it will be a close battle but, we lose). LOSS 4-1

    At Jets (Rival divisional game both will be up for it but, we are loads better than Cropdusters). WIN 5-1

    PACKERS (Cheeseheads last hurrah for Brett Favre? Not in our house! Win.) WIN 6-1

    BYE

    at BEARS (Da Cubbies are becoming a great team. This could become a defensive war. Da Cubbies will lose in a field goal or low scoring game.) WIN 7-1

    CHIEFS (It is pay back time! The hurricane will not be an excuse! I see us beating them convincingly) WIN 8-1

    VIKINGS (Need I say more! Daunte will put a hurting on his former team). WIN 9-1

    At Lions (The Leons always play balls out on Turkey Day. But, Saban and company will stuff them like a Turkey and eat them for later). WIN 10-1

    JAGUARS (The Jags are a pesky team. I see an emotional letdown here). LOSS 10-2

    PATRIOTS ( The game that will decide the division. The Dolphins win at home and will later take the division title and the end of the season when the dust settles). WIN 11-2

    At Bills ( This game will be for the playoff clincher. Saban will throw the kitchen sink at the Goats to make the playoffs). WIN 12-2

    JETS ( Win this one get a bye. Saban and Co. will get it done). WIN 13-2

    At Colts (This will be a battle I think the Phillies will need it more). LOSS 13-3


    Yes, my fellow Fin betheren I believe we will finish the season as Division Champs of the East with a 13-3 record and 1st round bye. No this not optimism, it will be realism. :evil: My 2 cents.
