    OPINION Dolphins ranked 20th, & out of out playoffs according to USA Today

    I read in the USA today that the Miami Dolphins are now ranked #20 in the League (down from 19th last week) and they claim Dolphins are out of the playoffs. I also read Jake Long is out for the season, a former # 1 pick. So I would like to retract my comments as to whether this season was a success or a failure, and I'd like to change it to a "failure" (up-to-this-point) and the reasons why are stated below.

    1) Every time this team showed some signs of promises right after the bye-week, Tannehill played flat and could not raise his level of play to better our position. (Seattle game the exception.)

    2) Trading Brandon Marshall ended up being a mistake, as the two 3rd round trades did not pay-off and now we're hearing the excuse from many fans, that Tannehill has no one to throw to.

    3) There are 4 weeks left in the season, and now the remaining 4 games will be nothing more than pre-season games.

    4) Home game attendance dropped off and continue to slide.

    5) Offense is not scoring enough points.

    6) Running game never improved, though we have some decent running-backs.

    If just one of the flowing things listed below happen, I may change my opinion.

    1) Tannehill's TD-INT ratio evens out to a respectable number.

    2) Dolphins finish 8-8 or better.

    3) Rushing game finishes solid with Reggie Bush going over 1,000 yards.

    4) Dolphins beat the Patriots.

    I agree with number 2. Not having Marshall stretch the field made tannehill and the run game jobs harder. Its the only thing i believe philbin got wrong, but i trust him as i believe he might have a surprise for us next year at the reciever spot.

    Well if we're mathematically out I want to see progress while also going for the best possible draft pick. Sorry if that doesn't bode well for those that love meaningless wins, but we need help and best pick gives us the best chance at drafting a high prospect to play alongside of Tannehill.

    Technically we are not out of the playoffs. Mess around with the playoff machine thing on ESPN.com and you will see.
