    OUTLOOK ON Offense
    Expect Ryan and Reggie to be much improved from 2012 due to new explosive players. With newly acquired receivers Greg Jennings and Keenan Allen and Seam shredding Tight End Jared Cook JR (6.5 runs 4.49 40) and Davone Bess and Ryan Swope tearing up underneath defenders expect this unit to score a lot of points. Reggie will return to 1,000 yard form with out any 8 man fronts constantly stopping our ground game. Lamar Miller should also see an expanded role with him improving as a downhill runner and pass protector Our offensive line may be the same if Jerry can hold of Samuda and Schwenke, but expect the unit to be different under a second offseason working the finer points of the zone scheme. Expect the group to develop more with 3 pro bowlers on the left side and pouncey and young players on the right side under the tutelage of Philbin and OL Coach Turner.

    OUTLOOK ON Defense
    Look for a DL rotation of Solaia, Starks, Wake, Johnson, Odrick, Vernon and Randall to wreak havoc on opposing offenses in the run and pass game. The defense overall as a unit will improve in the second year of the 4-3 press man defense. An improved pass rush with Johnson now a stater at the Right Defensive End, should match the press man in-your-face coverage from fresh faces at Corner: Derek Cox, Trufant, and Mathieu. Expect Coyle to work his magic with Reshad Jones and turn him into a pro bowl safety. Also don't be suprised when Coyle develops another star in the making at Safety with the 2nd rounder Matt Elam. This d hung their hat on stopping the run last year and will continue to do the same. Although they now have the pass rush and coverage to match that. Look for the Fins to sport the best FRONT 7 in the AFC (yes better than Houston Pittsburgh and Cincy).

    OUTLOOK ON Special Teams
    Star Special teamer Olivier Vernon will only improve and the dolphins brought back the solid Jason Trusnik and have added a playmaker to the special teams, not just on returns but the Honey Badger will be great in special teams coverage. Expect another big year from Fields and Thigpen as well.

    I think we have to let our players develop before we can expect things like this. Our QB has just finished his rookie year and it was also our head coaches rookie year. We have holes and it can't be expected that we sign all those players, being the Dolphins we will have to severely overpay atleast 1 of those players just to get them here.

    It's great that the Niners were able to make the turn around so quick but that Niners team had all kinds of talent on that team and just needed the right leader to show them that. And the Colts were able to make the quick turn around but does anybody really believe that they weren't Sucking for Luck? They had talent but when you start Curtis Painter you've already lost the game.

    I'm not going to complain if we win 12 games, but honestly, I'd be happy with an overall improvement to the team. We were close to the playoffs in a very weak conference but I still don't see us as a 12-4 team even with those signings.

    But hell, maybe Tannehill goes full Kaepernick next year and Sean Smith turns into a lockdown corner. And Reggie Bush runs like he did in college. Very unlikely but, it could happen.

    Tannehill is going to be a great quarterback in this league. Once we have Greg and Keenan Allen I expect him to throw 30tds 4000 yards and 13 picks or less

    Woah, I'm a fan of Tannehill but he's still pretty raw. he has great decision making but his accuracy needs to improve. We can't just throw around calling him a great QB yet, there's been too many Alex Smith's and Akili Smith's for that.

    No way does this regime draft the Honey Badger. I'd be STUNNED.
    I doubt EJ Manuel makes it to the 5th. I've seen mocks with him in the first. QB's always get drafted too high, no matter where they grade out.
    The pleasure of what we enjoy is lost by wanting more.

    well No Way in hell EJ goes First Round and the dolphins had their ENTIRE SCOUTING DEPARTMENT meet with Honey Badger at the Senior Bowl. we drafted Jimmy Wilson and he killed a guy all Honey Badger did was smoke a little weed like 70% of the NFL. and bc he got caught he was a "low character guy" tell that to Aaron Hernandez who fell all the way to the 4th round bc of weed and is easily one of the best tight ends in the league

    Not even close. No way is he a first round QB.

    And you need to take risks on talented players. We're trying to build a winning team; this isn't the boy scouts.
