    Phins opponents released for next season, face elite QB's, more notes

    Here’s yet another reason why the Dolphins need to improve their defensive backfield: They will be facing some of the league’s best passing attacks next season.
    The NFL has confirmed most of next year’s team-by-team matchups (without dates or times), and the Dolphins’ home schedule will include Baltimore, Cincinnati, Atlanta, Carolina and the AFC West team that finishes in the same spot as Miami (likely Chargers, Raiders or Chiefs), as well as AFC East rivals New England, Buffalo and the Jets.
    The Dolphins’ road schedule, besides the other AFC East teams, will include Cleveland, Pittsburgh, New Orleans, Tampa Bay and the AFC South team that finishes in the same spot as the Dolphins (Colts, Titans or Jaguars).
    That means, barring injuries, matchups against Matt Ryan, Drew Brees, Ben Roethlisberger, Joe Flacco, much-improved Josh Freeman, Cam Newton, Andy Dalton – and, as usual – two against Tom Brady.
    ### With the Patriots visiting Sunday, it’s hardly the ideal time for uncertainty at cornerback, which is happening with Nolan Carroll and R.J. Stanford now sharing snaps about equally.
    Also worrisome: Over the past four games, Sean Smith has allowed 16 of 24 passes against him to be completed (including five for five against Seattle) for 249 yards and two touchdowns. And with Wes Welker looming, Miami desperately hopes for more consistency from Jimmy Wilson in the slot; quarterbacks are completing 66 percent of passes against him, with a 104.5 rating in his coverage area.
    ### At least Reshad Jones remains No. 1 among all safeties according to Pro Football Focus, with a 57.1 quarterback rating against. Jones has been studying All-Pro Ed Reed on YouTube: “I look at Ed Reed and say that’s the safety I want to be known as.”
    ### Cornerback Richard Marshall insists if Davone Bess played for the Patriots, he would produce the numbers Welker does. Welker is fourth in the NFL with 80 receptions; Bess (55 catches) is tied for 15th with Brian Hartline, Larry Fitzgerald, Jimmy Graham and others.
    ### Rishard Matthews (22 snaps Sunday) has surged ahead of Marlon Moore (six snaps) for the No. 3 receiver job, but both are getting limited chances because the Dolphins are lining up Charles Clay and their running backs as receivers at times. Smith said the Dolphins’ fastest receiver is actually on the practice squad: 6-3 Brian Tyms.

    NFC South could be the most difficult division in football. That coupled with the AFC North doesnt sound fun.

    At least we will be able to beat up on the Jets for a couple easy wins.

    Definitely tougher than this year. Hopefully our new GM will have us prepared.

    I´d get the best pass rusher available with our 1st in order to harass those QBs, then WR/CB with the next 4 picks...brutal schedule!!

    You never know from year to year who is going to be good and who is not.

    There is no doubt the pass D needs to be fixed, but it also means the offense needs to be enhanced to be able to score with some of those teams. You are not shutting out the Saints, Falcons, Pats, Steelers, and Ravens. You need be able to score in the mid-20's.

    schedules like that are another reason i'm glad we got ryan tannehills taking his lumps season out of the way this year...i'd much rather go into a sched like that with a 2nd year returning qb who has the benefit of a full offseason etc than one who's never taken a snap in a regular season game...

    kids gonna need to put up points to win a lot of those games...
    hoops scoops 2012 season ..."in 2014 ryan tannehill etches his name in stone amongst the games elite qbs"..."ryan tannehill and andrew luck will carry the afc for the next decade plus the way peyton manning and tom brady have this last decade plus"
