    As of now I think the Patriots are going to present a stiff challenge to Miami
    On Defense. Look at there offseason on D line additions In Free Agency
    Danny Shelton. 1st Round pick
    Adrian Clayborne 1st Round Pick
    They will Play alongside
    Malcom Brown 1st Round Pick
    Then There is considerable depth off players for D End
    Two 1 st Round Picks at Linebacker
    3 of 5 starting Secondary First Round talents
    I do know first round picks are not sure things
    But what B.B. has assembled is in my thoughts
    Being built to stop Jacksonville type Teams
    Tom Coughlan has defeated BB in two Super Bowls
    I Hope our team is looking down the road like I feel
    New England is , They are also today hosting
    Rasheed Hageman former 1st round D Tackle off Atlanta .
    I’m not sure who there Defense coordinator is , but he has talent.

    On Offense. I think the RB. Jeremy Hill acquisition is a solid one
    Very similar to Corey Dillion . The other back Rex Burhead is 3 down gem.
    Brady will be difficult as he can be with Gronk , Edelman, rookie RB
    Michel, I think Corderele Patterson may blossom there .
    The Tight end they picked up Troy Nicklas, could surprise .
    They have solid Kicking , a Good Offensive Cooordinator.
    With that said I hope we pound the hell out of them .
    To defeat your enemy , know there weakness,
    never underestimate your opponents, never quit or give up in the fight.
    You have to know how your opponent will use your weakness against you ,
    As well as your strength against you. overconfidence is a killler.

    I really agree with the speed we have drafted in linebackers
    Reshad Jones Teaming with Minkah Fitzpatrick will be vital
    Our Corners need to GET IT Done
    But I really feel our D Tackles have to be beast out there
    Control the line of scrimmage, they will be tested , tested often
    only a fool would think Otherwise about that in my opinion .

    On offense I think it comes down tomRyan Tannehill
    Completion percentage, 3rd down efficiency,
    Reduce Turnovers , the interceptions were not all his fault,
    When a receiver runs the wrong route that is a disaster
    For the team as well as the QB stats , the line needs to give him
    Time to drop back , To often RT ran for his life in the past , he he was healthy
    I may be in the minority but I feel he is intelligian, athletic , a leader,
    Powerful arm , I think his touch , and pocket awareness are his issues.

    My opinion is that Miami has Dan Marino on the staff for a number of reasons
    To gauge the pulse off the team or issues , but mainly he is there to offer
    Ideas. And opinions about our Quarterback first. Then second I think they
    Have him evaluate how he would attack our Dolphin defense and share that
    With our Coaches .But this is just my thoughts . he is a great resource .
    I’ll look at the Jets maybe this weekend . Enough out of me

    The way this was written, it feels
    Like a bigass haiku, or maybe a limerick
    Idk
    Regardless, I enjoyed your thoughts, and agree
    Patriots D will likely be stout
    And Sony Michel
    Will test Jerome Baker.

    I'm really trying to not be a total tool here.

    This millennium?

    The Patriots have won the division 15 times.
    The Fins have won it twice.
    The Jets have won it once.

    I don't think it's a huge secret who the biggest obstacle in the AFC East is.

    No doubt NE is the team to beat until someone knocks them off the hill. The way to beat NE and we did have a great victory over them last season, is to pressure the hell out of Brady all day. Knock his 42 year old butt on the ground about 15 times, in the first half! Along with pressure come tight coverage on all their outlet weapons as well as stopping the run. On offense you have to run on them and make them play on their heels with the mixing of the run and pass. Whip them physically in all 3 phases and they can be beat. Winning the turnover margin wouldn't hurt either.

    There once was a draft staged in Dallas.

    Whose owner resembles a phallus.

    You graded too hard.

    Rhetoric like lard.

    And now my *** has a callous...

    No chance at the division. It’s Wild Card or bust until Brady/BB are gone. Been this way forever.

    OH how I hate hate hate those teams from the cold,
    having to play in the snow in December does suck.
    Most "experts" already know how the season will unfold,
    but honestly and truthfully I don't give a hmmm suck.
    The Patriots have been on top for so long,
    despite my hatred its hard to show disrespeck.
    Hopefully the reported turmoil in Foxboro isn't wrong,
    pray this could lead to an uncaring Bellichek.
    The Bills and Jets drafted their QB's of the future,
    incompletion Allen and hopefully another USC bust.
    They traded so much if they fail it will require a major suture,
    McNown and Tyrod obviously had lost all trust.
    So the order im saying is Pats, Bills, then Jets,
    but if RT is healthy screw them place bets!

    prefer the sonnet?

    IMO, the biggest obstacle to Miami's future success is Miami's Front Office personnel and Coaching Staff... including the owner who chose these people.

    I cannot wait for the day that we see Brady and Patriots decline and face some losing adversity. That will be a good year.

    We could sweep that pats and they'd still win the division. Jets and bills can't beat them but they can us, at least one of the games we play them. Always seems to go that way.

    Losing to the Jets and Bills has far more to do with the Dolphins missing the playoffs regularly than losing to the Patriots does. Look no further than 2013 for proof of that. Or 2016— swept by the Patriots, but 4-0 against the Bills and Jets = playoffs.

    I disagree, BB has been exposed and the team is still pissed that he basically threw the SB to make some ridiculous point with Butler. BB is a great coach don't get me wrong, but this past SB showed who truly is responsible for the majority of their success, and that man is getting very old and is 1 hit away from making them just like every other team in the NFL. They lost Solder which is very significant, I could see the team start to fall apart this year, with the whole thing blowing up with Brady's retirement after this season. BB is no genius, he's just very been fortunate to have the GOAT at the most important position. The Pat's should have beat the Giants to go undefeated as well with that historically great offense, but BB decided to throw a bomb to Moss on 4th and 17 or something instead of trusting a good kicker lol.

    I am concerned about the young quarterbacks taken by the Jets and the Bills. I know NY has really struggled to develop quarterbacks, while Allen for Buffalo has a ways to go. I do think Buffalo has the second best team in the AFC East based on talent.

    We know New England will be good as long as Brady is around.

    Bottom line

    Split with NE (we usually beat them in Miami)
    Make the playoffs
    Anything can happen, just take care of business.

    And, nobody likes to hear it but you really need to take a hard look at the playoff rosters before gauging what kind of chance you really have. This is a game of attrition and who's left DOES matter.

    I don’t buy NE’s drama at all. It’s all manufactured to make the league think they’re on the outs. **** all that. They’ll be 12-4 and with a bye in the playoffs as always.

    They still have s**** edge rushers, and lost Cooks, Solder, and Butler. They'll still be good as usual, but they aren't some unbeatable team anymore. Teams like the Jags and Steelers have a lot more talent than them now, Brady saves them from mediocrity but he is getting old, regardless of what plants and s*** he eats everyday. Their time is coming to an end pretty soon, BB only expedited the process by benching a player THAT WON THEM A SB, who btw is a very good player that they will miss more than they realize. Kind of like with Chandler Jones (17 sacks last year) who they still need and haven't replaced. They should have won that SB, and would have had it not been for BB arrogance by sitting Butler. Sure they will act like it doesn't bother them, but it will and is the begging of the process of a deteriorating dynasty. It happens in history all the time when a leader leader becomes too arrogant like BB now is, it is the beginning of their demise. The only decision in a SB that was more arrogant than sitting Butler an entire game, was when BB decided to go for it on 4th and 13 on the Giants 31 in SB XLII when they had a 4 point lead late in the 3rd quarter lol. BB has basically lost them 2 SB's, but luckily he's had Brady, Butler and Vinatteri over the years to bail his a** out!

    This is EXACTLY what I'm saying.

    You want to know what the difference is between Gase and Philbin? This is it right here. Gase is absolutely ******* determined to do it his way. With his coaches, and his type of players. He's not queasy.

    BB and Brady who's ethics are shady
    How the heck are you all?
    The games begin, the Pats always win
    Those Cheatriots get every call.

    Tommy and Bill get all their thrills
    By cheating and committing sin
    The season starts and it breaks our hearts, cause
    The Patriots always win.

    Adam and Ryan are tired of trying
    And never getting no fame
    The games roll out and without a doubt
    It's the Dolphins who lose many games

    But, Coach Adam Gase cleaned out the place
    And is firmly in control
    Gisecki and Fitz will be making big hits
    And the Dolphins are on a roll

    Drake and Gore running for more
    Yards behind Davis and James
    Ballard comes in, Dolphins wins
    Is that 5 straight games?

    Parker and Stills providing some thrills
    Lasers from Tanny all day
    Fitz is too slick, he gets a pick
    It's the Dolphins all the way

    BSQ I thought you knew the
    Dolphins always stink
    I'd like to have some of what or inhaleing
    Or at least a sip of your drink!

    This is a small window in theory for us. It's a QB driven league of course. Honestly think Brady should have called it a day after last season and I think he would have had they won it again, he looked so old in the loss at our place. Time has got to start taking it's toll, when it happens a lot of the time it happens pretty fast, got a feeling next season may be a season too far for him. The Bills and Jets both drafted their future franchise (they hope) guys, this is a season they will be probably be starting out with short term guys as neither are ready to start. They are not going to make a playoff run this year, I don't think.

    If you listen to folks on here, especially that Buffalo guy, then we have a future hall of famer whose just turning 30 (in his prime) and a 7 year vet, with a ton of experience, we've perhaps got the most stable situation under center in the division right now.

    If Darnold is as good as the draft guys were making out during the process, if Brady keeps performing his iron man act and/or if Allen isn't as wild in his accuracy as he looks, then we really need to hope that you guys are right because it could be a hell of a tough division.

    All I’m going to say is who the heck has Tanny had to play with. Ryan gets Julio and Gates, Big Ben gets Brown and McCoy. Tanny gets Hartline, Bess, Clay, and Landry and makes them look like pro bowlers. They move on with big contracts and do nothing. And people blame him for not taking the team on his shoulders. For a Lord’s sake give him anyone who can win a fair matchup and change the game. Not like he can throw the ball to himself.

    We now look to have a TE that can do this. We have RB’s as pass catchers (only) that should. But no WR’s and no RB that strikes fear in a DC’s heart. Most of this is unproven talent. Don’t make it like playoffs or he sucks. Once he has proven game changing talent around him I’ll begin to buy that nonsense. Right now everyone that looks good is scheme driven and not man on man I’ll beat you and you can’t stop me type talent. Until we have that we don’t have squat!

    Rant over.
