    Sounds like Junc's reasoning. They could make the playoffs......but they probably won't.

    Based on past performance and history, I think it's reasonable to say.

    It's bet hedging, but that's what everyone does these days.

    Pretty sure I read recently that Mike Wallace' catch percentage is very good - especially if you remove one fluke, bad game.

    Maybe Walter should be reminded Tony Sparano and crew are no longer employed by the Dolphins.

    The fact that he said Wallace has a high drop % makes that dumbass author have zero credibility.

    we don't talk about a healthy Keller enough and what potentially could be the same effect Gonzo had with Ryan. I am not comparing the two TE's head-to-head, but the impact based on what the franchises need from them. He could keep the chains moving on 3rd and less than 4 - and it's those 2-3 extra downs in a game that can help us overcome a rough schedule to start.

    He also predicted the Fins to have 3 wins last year. These guys will never stick their neck out there until they see results. ESPN Analysts are the same.

    If it was always just about the past the same teams would win every year and the same ****ty teams would remain so.

    8-8 is the cop out prediction. If they aren't sure what the Dolphins are going to do, don't give an answer that can go either way.

    Why couldn't 8-8 be a reasonable prediction?

    If you guessed that prior to last year you'd be pretty close.

    Past performance is a fairly good indicator of future performance. Not the only one, to be sure, but a reasonable
    one to consult with and base an opinion from.

    I think that 8 wins is a realistic floor to put on this team, at this point in time. I would like to see something from about half the new starters playing, and fitting in, before raising the expectations. JMO

    A couple things:

    Since when does Wallace have a 'loser attitude'? Also, I'd echo what others have said about his hands.
    No mention of Lance Louis, who I think will ultimately end up as our RG.
    No mention of why they rated our coaching staff the lowest of the various categories.
    Brent Grimes is 29, not 30.
    Why focus on the lack of scheme fit for Jordan and others on the defense and praise Tyson Clabo as a can't miss RT even though he's never played as a zone scheme OT as a pro?

    Wallace and his loser attitude? His high drop percentage? Wake is a better fit in a 3-4? Odrick cant play in a 4-3? I know the Fins have alot of question marks, but so does this article...

    No, Grimes wasn't even mentioned as a veteran addition in the portion you posted. That was enough for me.

    An 8-8 record would be an indictment of Philbin's coaching ability and he should be fired if that is how this season pans out.

    Why?

    There are any variety of factors that can influence a record, many of which are beyond a coaches control.

    I don't know about all that. It'd be a disappointment, but there are a LOT of new parts. To get to 10 or 11 wins, we'll have to have a lot of things break right for us.

    Not to mention it would be an improvement. Hard to justify firing a guy that's producing an improving record.

    So when I put together my picks, I can't have anyone go 8-8.

    Gotcha

    Sure you can...you can predict that every team in the nfl will finish 8-8 and not be too far off...that's kinda my point.
