    Right now, what is your season prediction? Not what you want but what you would put money on?

    I think we can go 10-6 but I'd put $1K on us going 9-7.

    Ditto on needing to see them play first but 7-9 sounds about right (for now).

    I think we can go 12 or more, depending on how we do in our first 5 games.

    I'd put $1.5K on a Savage 12 Long Range Precision Varminter rifle chambered in 6 Norma BR. Target shooting is much more fun then gambling on sports because it is a real competition.

    But if you put $1.5K on the phins and win you can buy even more rifles or a nicer one.

    Can I get back to you at the end of the season? Of course it will be easier then. I'm asking you to place your predictions now, if you are willing.

    I can't see us beating the Jags, Texans AND the Bills twice. Hope I'm wrong.

    I'm more accurate shooting than betting. If I lose after I get a rifle, I still have a rifle!

    I think you will be happily surprised after we beat the Patriots twice. I see it coming as a logical result of :
    1) The last game we played against them last year where we won big time.
    2) The degree of improvement we have made on both sides of the ball this year due to 3 years of better than average drafting.
    *** I expect the Patriots will remain where they were at, or possibly be a little worse due to free agency and suspensions.
    3) The improvement we have made in our coaching staff this year.
    *** I expect the Patriots to lose a little more due to losing one coordinator and having had trouble retaining the other last year.
    4) The change in the Dolphins culture after last year seems to be showing in a higher level of professionalism in training camp.

    These are real considerations we need to account for looking forward to playing the Patriots.

    I expect the Patriots to get a lot of bullshit pass interference calls and go 12-4 again.

    I think Miami is between a 7-9 to a 9-7 team. A lot of variables ultimately will decide how many wins. I'm not sure the defense is going to hold up their end of the bargain. I still got visions of the losing streak last season where Miami gave up more than 2000 yards of offense to opponents.

    I'm kind of serious, though. That was my takeaway from the Hall of Fame game. More discretionary calls any time a defender is anywhere near a football in the air. I'm not real happy about it.

    Two rookie qbs in the afc east? Phins and Pats will reap the benefits. Pats win the division but we go 11-5, claim the 5 seed and play the Steelers once again in the wild card round.

    9-7

    It's a bounce league. Records among Crowd rosters from the prior year don't really mean that much, other than indication of whether the variables were cuumulatively friendly or unfriendly. Dolphins had an unfair 10 wins in 2016 so the arrow was logically downward in 2017. In that case the subway stop is often further away than logic suggests. So we found 6, the suburban edge of Crowd. Now the bounce direction is typically the other way so I'll propose 9.

    Not much thought involved, which is what I prefer. I don't care about dizzying stuff like personnel or rules changes and how they might or might not impact this guy and not that guy. Dolphin brass and coaching staff in this era is likewise Crowd so I'm not assigning Cream anywhere. Maybe Griese and Nat and Stockton. I love that trio for preseason.

    Never a need to actually take August seriously.

    On edit: really? I have to misspell a tame word intentionally in the opening paragraph to bypass the checker?

    I went with 9-7. I believe a lot of younger players will emerge and that Miami will be in the playoff race. The offense finally looks like it could be good, but the run defense keeps the Dolphins out of the postseason. Defensive lineman become the priority in the offseason.

    11-5, just because! I don't think we'll sweep the Patriots, Bills or Jets (I think we'll split), but I do see us surprising a few teams along the way. Plus, I'm just a ****eyed optimist.

    I would put money on 9-7 but I'm hoping for 10-6 although 8-8 wouldn't surprise me... anything below that would be a kick to the groin

    Wow! We are either alot smarter than alot of professional sportswriters or we are delusional. Less than 10% have us under .500 and no one lower than 7-9

    Anywhere between 10-6 if we’re lucky and 6-10 if we’re not. We’re due for some luck: 9-7.

    Assuming folks stay healthy over the next month and the offense shows good promise in preseason Miami could surprise. 8-8 at worst is my guess. Best case? 10-6.

    There's too many unknowns with this team.

    The fins have won at least 6 games all but 2 times since 1980 so i think history suggests were good for at least 6 wins.

    Of course it's all just a blind shot in the dark, but I have us at 10-6 with all 6 losses occurring on the road (At NE, At Cincy, At Houston, At Green Bay, At Minnesota, and At Buffalo) Playing in New England and Buffalo is almost always disastrous for us. Except for that one game where we demolished the Texans with Dan Campbell as our coach, Houston has been a nightmare for us as well: we just get worked against them anywhere we play as a rule :frown On the positive side, I have a good feeling about us going into games with the Colts and Jags and we have a decent shot to maintain that Miami voodoo over Brady and the Pats in S. Fla. Even though 10-6 would probably mean a Wildcard berth and a potential one and done again, the schedule is favorable for it if Tanny can stay healthy IMO!

    The Jets have Bridgewater and McCown, theres a good chance only Buffalo might play their rookie QB. I wouldn't be surprised if Darnold sits out the year for Jets.

    If Tannehill plays like he did pre-injury, this is a playoff team...9 wins plus.

    If I had to put money on it.... > 9

    I'd say we'll probably end up at or close to 8-8.
    There will be uplifting, surprising wins against really strong teams and a great showing with a W against the patriots at home - and there will be frustrating, dumb losses against weak teams that will end up costing the Dolphins the playoffs, as is tradition.

    But I won't be giving up on hoping that the fins grab a wild card spot. So I'll be hoping we can grab a win in a few close games and will be super lucky with no injuries, so we'll manage to get to 10-6 and the playoffs.

    7-9 because of the offensive and defensive lines.
