    the 1-6 start did it, the media cant look at us as a good team after starting off that way.

    We were overrated for the longest time. We have lost more games than we have one. The guy that won us a lot of games is being considered for Defensive MVP. We are rated just about right.

    We're a nonplayoff team. No one gives a damn about teams that dont make the playoffs, which is how it should be.

    Not to mention that many of the so-called experts picked Miami to play in Miami in the Super Bowl. They took the popular pick, mostly based on your strong run at the end of last year. They were as wrong as a person could possibly be wrong, and they'll be damned if they're going to choke on their own bad predictions.

    Standing answer: All South Florida sports are underrated unless the team won a championship the previous year.

    6-7 also doesn't help.

    agreed and part of the problem is we havent been to a spuerbowl in 30 years and people are tired of dolphins talking about how great the fins are and when you go 8-8 9-7 or 7-9 this isnt something we should be bragging about . this is why some people think its better to go 6-10 one year and 5-11 next year and then go 12-4 and make the playoffs and by sacrificing a season you really set yourself up for geting better talent and you quickly have a much better chance of a superbowl . for those that say that mindset is wrong havent checked out other nfl teams and noboddy likes losing but we are not going to the playoffs and we are not going to get the talent that we need to make ourselves better.

    6-7

    The record speaks for its self. If we can get Daunte in to camp next year at full speed we should be a playoff team. The main thing I see why the Dolphins are not a playoff team is that we dont have team chemistry. We have started to have some the last few weeks same as last year. We need to get everyone in to camp and focus on the same goal. If we can do that I don't see why this team can not go far in the playoff next year. It takes time for a QB and WR to get their timing.

    what can we say we started with an extremely poor record so everyone has written us off, we are in the same boat as the titans as we have had almost an identical season to them.

    You people never cease to amaze me. There are 50 thousand post in the offseason and now even in the reg season about us being underrated??? How can a team that hasn't won a championship in 35 years and hasn't been to the playoffs in like 5 or whatever, possibily be underrated?? For all you people who care there is a new rule. There are two ratings, last years SB winner and 31 losers. GOT IT?? If you didn't win the SB you are a loser, plain and simple. When we win one then complain but until then give it a rest, d*&^%

    PLEASE tell me that was a joke!!!!! We are in the same league as the Titians?? No we have the same RECORD, but we as franchises are heading in the opposite directions. They have maybe the brightest outlook behind center in the entire league, a QB that looks to be everything those in Atlanta HOPED Vick would be. We on the other hand ....well unless you still think Danute in magically gonna turn into something like a miracle, are tied to a backup QB for the next 5 years that is gonna keep us from affording a starting QB.
    THAT my friend is NOT in the same league.

    We aren't underrated, we are not overrated. It's not like we lost 3 games due to hail marys, or 60 yard FG's.

    We are what we are. Period.

    This team was supposed to be a SUPER BOWL CONTENDER!!!!!! That's why. Are you really that clueless?? They're overrated if anything. At the end of the season no one will care they beat the Bears and Pats. Heck they always beat the Pats once a year. SO WHAT????????????????

    Starting 1-6 is like a dude getting a sex change operation and transforming himself into a beautiful woman! No matter how good he looks in the end the fact remains it is still a DUDE! And you cant change that.

    How's that for an analogy?
