  1. New season poll

    If Miami's defense can stay healthy this season the Dolphins will win enough close low scoring games to cost them a top 5 pick in the draft I think. This team is going to have a fast young defense and if the can keep games low scoring to where Miami can try, and establish a run game there will be a few wins. Back in April and posted I thought a 3 to 5 game win season and I am still pretty solid on that feeling and maybe even a bit more leaning to the 4 to 6 game win scenario. I think the Cardinals, 49ers ,Jets, Giants, Jags, Lions, Broncos and Skins all have a chance to be as bad or worse in the win department as Miami.
  2. New season poll

    If Miami does not address the O-line it will not matter who the QB is this year or next.
  3. Preseason game one thoughts.

    I only here " off field issues " coming out of college and a disastrous Pro Day to boot. Some had him projected as a late second rounder that would contribute immediately before the off field issues and a bad pro day. I think this guy can be what Devate Parker should have been.
  4. New season poll

    I really liked what I saw from Rosen in the first preseason game. He was under a lot of pressure and managed to avoid a few sacks that Tannehill would have taken and even made a throw or two out of those possible sacks. At this moment I have just a little bit more confidence in Rosen but I am still very skeptical of him I hope to see better things each game.
  5. Preseason game one thoughts.

    Preston Williams looks really special, Rosen was not bad after a shaky start but was on the ground a few times early. Good to get that first win out of the way and no major injuries as far as I know.
  6. New season poll

    History shows that for even long lived QBs in the NFL that 42 years old in about the max, I give Brady +1 on history and say he has 2 years left. Rosen my or may not win the starting job this season but I think he is here as at least as a back up for 2 seasons so this could be a tie.
  7. New season poll

    Who will be with there present team the longest Rosen in Miami or Brady in New England
  8. Team Needs

    QB seems to be the biggest problem at the moment, Fitzpatrick will have a few great games but they will be offset with a few dud games. That's when Miami will need Rosen to step in and step up to be the franchise guy and that is no better than a 50/50 shot at the moment in my opinion. That brings me to the OLine that will be the key to Miami's season success rate. Center and the right side tackle and guard are big concerns and the future is not real bright at the moment in those three positions. A bonified edge rusher would be nice but I think with the talent on defense ( that is counting on Reshad Jones being on the team) and Flores schemes I do not think the defense will be the issue if Miami bombs this season but very well could be the reason they are not a playoff team.
  9. With a new HC this year I looked back at other new Miami head coaches in the losing era which I am counting as 2004 season until now. Dave Wanstedt was the last coach Miami has had what I consider a winning tenure. He had in order 11-5, 11-5, 9-7, 10-6 seasons his first 4 years as head coach but only 1 playoff win and that was his first year as coach. in 2004 he and the Dolphins started the season 1-8 and he was fired at that point, Jim Bates finished up the season as HC with a respectable 3-4 end to the season. With a 4- 12 season in 2004 it has been pretty much mediocrity ever since with each new coach pretty much having their best season the first season of there tenure. Saban ……………….. 9-7, 6-10- quit Camron...…………….1-15 - fired Sparano...…………. 11-5, 7-9, 7-9, 4-9 - fired Philbin………………… 7-9, 8-8, 8-8, 1-3 - fired Gase.…………………..10-6, 6-10, 7-9, - fired I have no clue what to expect this season but based on the last 5 coaches it is going to be about as good as it is going to get unde Flores this season? I hope not but since 2004 this franchise has become expert at being lukewarm and there are not many things in life that are good lukewarm. If this season goes well and Miami should happen to win 7 to nine games it will only make me the more skeptical about next season, I almost think a 3-5 game winning seasons would be reason for a little more hope for the future instead of a so so non playoff 7 to 9 win season for Flores first year. Any thoughts?
  10. Rebuilding Whirlwind

    Wow that is a whopping 3.6 times a game, and I wonder just how many of those targets were within 2 yards of the line of scrimmage.
  11. Dolphins D, so far

    I love Reshad Jones but after what he pulled last season and seeing the youth movement and new focus on defense I just as soon see Reshad traded for something that will help the future. Jones is ageing and starting to get injury prone.
  12. Jets fire GM Mike Maccagnan / Adam Gase will be acting interm GM

    Gase will cut or trade every player that does not stand at attention, salute and say yes sir every time he passes by them, well maybe it is not quite that bad but he does like yes men and people that do not question his mediocrity as a football coach.
  13. Dolphins sign CB Xavien Howard to record deal

    You have to have (young) veteran presence on the field for the new guys to get guidance from and Howard, Tunsil, Mcmillan, Baker and guys like these are the new home grown franchise playes that will be the foundation for hopefully great things to come.. You cannot let the best corner in the league walk just because you are rebuilding, then you are using draft picks hoping to replace what you already had and let go . Howard will be in his prime for the next 5 years along with Fitzpatrick that is a solid foundation in the secondary, Reshad Jones will be the dead weight cap wise that will have to be dealt with in the future as he nears the end of his prime playing time.
  14. Dolphins sign CB Xavien Howard to record deal

    I do not have a problem with the Dolphins paying the #1 Corner in the league top money. I hope with the new heads that are in place that having to pay second contract Dolphins top money because they are All Pros becomes a common problem in the years to come.
  15. Rebuilding Whirlwind

    There is no guarantee that Tua or Hebert will succeed in the NFL either, everyone of these QB,s drafted in the top 15 of the first round probably have less then a 50/50 shoot at becoming a winning QB in the NFL much less the next Tom Brady. I am really skeptical of QB,s that are drafted from college programs that win every year no matter who the QB is, a lot of times the teams system is better then the QB really is, remember Matt Cassell in NewEngland. Rosen was a great chance to take with low to no risk or loss, we will know if he has what it takes or on to be a starter in this league by seasons end, if not he will be a good cheap back up to the QB of the 2020 season who ever that turns out to be.
