    This is getting ridiculous. I would bet my life savings that we win more than 3 games. Unless something catastrphic happens, there is no way we don't win more than 3 games.

    Dolphin fans can add Sports Illustrated to the long list of publications that believe the team is headed towards a terrible 2018 season.

    Monday Morning Quarterback (MMQB) released its 2018 season predictions for all 32 NFL teams on Thursday morning, and they predicted the Dolphins will finish with a 3-13 record. The Dolphins were picked third in the AFC East behind the New England Patriots (13-3) and New York Jets (6-10), and slightly ahead of the Buffalo Bills (2-14).

    This is such a stupid article. Tannehill at 50% is better than Cutler was last year. Most people are predicting us to be worse this year though based solely on the losses of Landry, Suh, and Pouncey but they simply don't know our team. Pouncey just flat out didn't play well, Landry with his 110 catches and less than 1,000 yards won't be hard to replace... any number of players on the team could match that production if given a ton of targets their way all within 10 yards and Suh... well yea that's a loss, but anyone that knows anything about the team sees how much better they are going to be on defense. They got faster, and smarter, and minkah alone will make the entire defense better. Quinn is also a big upgrade as a pass rusher. I'd bet every penny I have that we will get more than 3 wins.

    Right. Peter is gone, not that he was that much better, but it is a little silly to say that they will only win 3 games. I wish I had a job where I was wrong most of the time and still get paid.

    The Dolphins this upcoming season are not going to be nearly as good defensively as either of those teams were last year. You can pretty much take that to the bank.

    With that being said, I'd say we're going to win more than 3 friggin games lol.

    Truly absurd.

    I get the Vegas line, which even seems low, bc it’s essentially nothing more than a bet on Tannehill’s health. But 3 wins?

    Honestly feel we’re much closer to 3 losses than 3 wins assuming Tannehill stays upright and we don’t lose half our starters to injury.

    Correction, we don't know how good we're going to be on defense ;) we're only going to have 6 new starters in for opening week 2018 compared to 2017, we might have a defense better than both those 2!!!!! or we could have one of the worst defenses in the league and none of the additions pan out :D

    I'm just messing about with the above line. but on paper a lot of things have looked great in the past and turned into crap, every once in awhile things have looked like crap but surprised everyone. I think out of the 3 phases if we could just have a great, good, and average, then we can make the playoffs. honestly on paper I don't even know what you would consider all 3 right now. most outsiders would prob rate us as decent at best at all 3 phases of the game. two aspects of the game fall on one mans shoulders...jakeem can he be trusted as a returner with his hands, if so that adds an extra explosiveness, can he become more than a decoy or gimmick planned wr on offense to the point he can find 40/50 touches this season and once again make the offense potentially more explosive.

    Granted we aint no playoff team but definitely win at least 6 games. My concern is the WR,s. Parker is a potential bust. Stills is unpredictable. Danny is average. Grant Who knows. Wilson Who knows and Gesicki not proven. We Definitely need to draft a WR #1 next year

    Suh = tough loss

    So nobody actually read what they said? Pretty much they are concerned about his health and don't believe in our backups. I think thats pretty reasonable.

    I'm so sick of reading how we lost an overpaid DT, a ball hog slot WR and gimp center who cant practice and how that will make us one of the worst teams in the league. STFU.

    Great post right here. We got rid of some dead weight. We're the Dolphins so everyone of these lazy people go by what the team has done in the past. We'll have a winning record this year.

    They only major loss this offseason was Suh.

    That doesn’t translate to 3 less win then we had with Jay Cutler at qb lol.

    Suh is a beast (not tripping over him being gone though), but I hear you on Landry and Pouncey, especially Pouncey- he's been terrible for a few years now.

    Let me do the math. Miami plays the Bills twice. SI has the two teams combining for 5 wins. That means outside of games against each other the two teams will only win 3 games. No way I see that happening. Heck if you include the Bills, Jets and Dolphins that's 6 games against each other and the have the teams combining for 11 wins, so that means the 3 AFC east teams will only win a combined 5 games (a w/l record of 5 and 31) against the rest of the league. If i could be every disposable dollar in my account against such a thing happening I would do so.

    They based the prediction on assuming RT gets hurt again. I’d like to know their thought on if he stays healthy what the record would be.

    Such a dumb way to make a prediction, don't see predictions for other teams if their QB is hurt again.

    Absurd!

    We're at least a 4 win team!

    Maybe 5!

    JK.

    Way too early to make any predictions.

    Tho I do believe we will remain unproven until otherwise proven!

    I actually have a good feeling about this season and think we get at least 9 wins in Tanne's knee holds up. I think we addressed our biggest issue and that is the OL, which has been by far the biggest issue since 2012.

    Tell me about it. I would include your statement before the bold in that category. I get that you are a huge Landry fan but if you remove subjectivity and emotion from the equation you arrive at a reality that will show you that he is actually easily replaced. His stats are not due to his league leading ability, it's due to his league leading force feeding of the football.
    He's a very good slot receiver, but he's not a team changer. We will not skip a beat without him.

    Sports Illustrated? Didn't even know that was still around. They seem even less knowledgeable about the NFL than even ESPN. They should just stick to taking pictures of swimsuit models, that was what they were best at 20+ years ago when I last looked at their magazine.

    These media outlets don't care about facts or if their gibberish actually makes any real sense. Logic is their kryptonite.

    Only part of that article that could ring true is that Tannehill alone wins us 3 more victories.

    I'm not a betting person, but would enjoy placing a bet that we win more than 3 next year.

    I believe they are right, and they're wrong.

    They are right, Miami will win 3 games, but they're error is, it's 3 games in the 1st quarter of the season, not the entire season...Silly Sports Illustrated, you yet again fail badly, how does your publication stay alive outside of the Swimsuit Issue?

    Yeah, I don't bet on sports, but if the over/under on the Dolphins was 3.5, I'd seriously, seriously going and putting money on the over.

    Sounds like they are using the network prediction program from the last presidential election. I bet they got it used and very cheap!

    he was easily the most exciting player we've had since Ricky retired the 2nd time, was our best draft pick since Rashaad Jones, and was one of the main reasons I watched this stagnant team.

    Hard to argue with this imo but if all these new players can gell and contribute right away, if RT stays healthy and picks up where he left off 2 years ago and if our new assistant coaches are as good as advertised then I say we could/ should be 10 6 with our schedule. Lot of ifs though.
