    with younger, speedier LB'ers who are better in coverage than Dansdy and co. we should match up better with the Pats (mainly their TEs). we still need some good CBs among other things but if we construct our team the right way we can be better than the pats.

    It's like the Lakers, Yankees or Celtics - we can't say we're better than the Patriots until we beat them. Until that happens they are on top and Miami is chasing..

    Do you want the truth or do you want a thread where everyone agrees we're winning the Super Bowl and Ireland is a genius?

    I'll phrase it this way: Are the Pats concerned (in your view) of the real posibility that we might take the top spot in 2013?

    Don't you think there's a Rosie O'Donnell ass-sized gap between merely making the playoffs, which we damn near did last year with a plethora of holes on the roster, and winning the Super Bowl?

    Who on here is complaining about an analyst saying we have no shot to win the Super Bowl?

    Well, our season win over/under will probably be 8 with juice on the over. Perhaps 8.5 with juice on the under, if we make further moves in free agency and the draft that are positively received.

    That's an uptick but it doesn't equate to playoff likelihood. We'll certainly be underdogs to make the playoffs on opening weekend. The media normally falls in line with the consensus.

    The ones who have been most off base for years in regard to the Dolphins are the pollyanna fluff types, where every move is celebrated.

    BTW, for anyone who wants to bet into those season win props when they are released, keep in mind that the Las Vegas sharps who prioritize and pounce on those things are looking to bet under, under, and under some more. You literally hear under at least 75% of the time when talking to them. If they bet 10 of those props, it's likely that 8 will be unders, if not more than that. It's exactly the opposite of the public, which fixates on the over. I tried to make that point to the guy who jumped on the Dolphins over 7.5 last season. Unless you're 100% sure, or don't care, it's best to wait instead of jumping on an over.

    If you add up every season win number for every team, it comes out to far above the total number of victories in the league. That's amusing every season. There are 256 games but the over/unders will add up to 265, if not more than that. The public happily ignores that penalty while the wise guys are always looking for the bonus 2-4% edge.

    BTW, one time Greg Cote in his preview column came out at roughly 272 wins for the league. He was assigning an extra half victory per team than was possible.
