    I don't care what anyone says, but we are going places. I know we've been slow starters & it may take some time for all our new players to click & run smooth, still w/so much talent we will overcome. I'm not a homer & going to predict a Superbowl win, but I'll sell my sister if we don't go atleast 9-7 & make the post season. And there's so many reasons why.

    1. Upgrade at QB. We could've used Green here a few years ago & he may be a short fix, but he's a definite upgrade over what we've had at the helm. And I think even if Green's injured, Beck will be ready to come in. He's the future & I don't see him struggling (for long) should he have to come in.

    2. Ronnie's ready to break out. He's got a couple of years under his belt & will be ready to push the ball in behind Schlesinger & Andersen. Even though our O-line's not the biggest. We've now got a monster TE & FB to help us push the ball in. Those 3rd & shorts (&) 4th & goals are going to be a lot easier. Our opponents can stack the line if they want, but they better have their ice & advil nearby. Not to mention that Ronnie has proved that he can carry the ball 20 times per game & if so will give you a nice game. Also we have nice back up & change of pace RB in L.Booker.

    3. Upgrade / Solid WR core. And I'm not speaking of Chambers & Booker. Booker was nice last year, but I believe we let our best WR (Welker) go. Chambers has shown us that he can put up good numbers, however he's not consistent enough. IMHO I think Ginn & Hagan will be our #1 & #2 by the end of the season. I also think we've got to let Hakim or Booker go & give the 4th & 5th spots to Sutton & PK Sam who are both impressing. W/Ginn's speed & a year of experience he could be a top 10 at the end of next year - 08' season.

    4. Revamped O-line w/a beast leading the way - nuff said.

    5. Upgrade / Solid Defense. Upgrade at LB - Porter. Has got to be one of the best LB's corps I can remember. I also feel that our Secondary started to get it together at the end of last year & will be an improved secondary.

    Call this Optimism, call it homerism, call it whatever you want, just don't let the disappointment we've had the last couple of years make you weary, because we've definitely upgraded & will be the team everyone's talking about.

    Go Fins! :dancing::dancing::dancing:

    I agree with everything except #4. Our oline is a mystery if I've ever seen one. Our defense looks better on paper but hopefully the extra year hasn't slowed them down.

    Yeah it's probably now or never for a few on the defensive side.

    I like your optimism. But forgive me if I don't count my chickens before they've hatched.

    great post man, but i cant agree with you on number 3, i dont feel weve upgraded much at the WR core and ginn will not be a 1 or 2 receiver this year, hell work as a slot reciever like welker did, thats my opinion, but i may be wrong.

    I think our D will be superior for 2 or 3 more years, and if we can find successors to Zach and JT, for years beyond that. For all the talk about our aging defense, we have some good young talent getting set to step in.

    I love optimism. There still are some weaknesses on this team (namely, the secondary). Having said that, I do like the improvements made to this point, I love the fact that all of our draft picks will be available for Day 1 of training camp, and that Cameron is running this team the right way.

    I'm hopeful for a good season. I'm not sold on the playoffs at this juncture, but I'm with you on 9 wins (if not more).

    we need our vet WR to step up to win more games, chambers needs a huge year with green at QB, would like another RB like Dillon to add to depth

    Umm, a little optimistic, but that's what being a fan is all about.

    I agree with most of what you have stated here. Except the OL/WR 1. If we get Pete Kendall then yes I agree but if not I think we are lacking in that department. 2. WR- There is no way that Hagan and Ginn will unseat Chambers and Booker. Sorry, just not goin to happen. Everything else is all good. GO PHINS.

    Everybody thinks of Zach and JT and Traylor and Holliday when it comes to our D being old. What about Roth, Wright, Daniels, Allen, Crowder, Bell? All got yrs ahead of them. Some good drafts for the next few yrs will see those positions being filled nicely.

    I will wait to see what happens since I lack the ability to predict or see into the future.

    Good post, I agree with just about everything. I like to think I know a lot about football and not just the dolphins like most fans (with any team). This is the first time in a long time that I have felt we have a team that should make the playoffs. If we can't get a wild card spot with our current team I will be very suprised (take it no major injuries occurr). No matter what I am always optimistic that we will be good, but I havn't had this much faith in our team for a long time. Well let me correct myself, this much faith in our offense. I think there are going to be quite a few occassions where our offense is not going to have to travel that far to get into scoring position. All these 3 and outs are going to be a thing of the past. Trent Green is going to fit AWESOME with the way Cam is going to run this offense. I spent the last 5 years watching the Chiefs play every Sunday (This will be my first year with the nfl ticket!) and went crazy when I heard we were going to pick him up. I can't predict the future of Beck, but I think we have what we've been looking for. I am going to stop my ramblings, but I just can not wait until kickoff in Washington. This franchise is FINALLY heading in the right direction, and if you disagree you don't know jack.

    I don't see why the Dolphins can't win the first 2 games (Skins and Cowboys)and go from there. Skins suck and the Cowboys are over rated. The Cowboys would have been 6-10 too if they played in the AFC. After that is the Jets. I hate to say it but the Jets aren't too bad. No way the Dolphins should have lost to them last year though that was disgusting, both games. If they can start 3-0 and pick up a division win on the road that will be great.:)

    Now remember folks, when the Dolphins are up 28-0 in Washington they haven't won a Super Bowl yet. You know many fans of this team including myself are going to carried away with expecations with that first convincing win.
