    The only thing that matters to me is:

    a.) Is it how I really feel about it?
    b.) Does it have sound football logic behind it?
    c.) Does the same logic apply regardless of the team that did it/didn't do it?


    If the answer is 'yes' to all three, you have yourself a Slimm post.

    I'm just playing with you. Agree or disagree with what you post, you are clearly pretty honest when you talk about the team. I won't say objective because that might be a shouright trigger word.
    Oh no, we suck again!

    Agreed we get labeled as negative, Debbie downer, etc because we don't blindly praise every move that is made. I have said all along I am a realist I call it how I see it not my fault for the better part of a decade the Dolphins have been serving the fans Chicken **** and passing it off as Chicken Salad!

    So far we have had a solid off season but there is still a lot of work to be done! Wallace, Gibson and Kelner were upgrades the two Lbs I hope they are but only time will tell. A couple more solid signings and I don't see why this team isn't competing for the Division or a Wildcard!
    The above post is not subject to penalty under the TOS I declare the Hayden Fox defense. " It is impossible for the staff to know my context therefore I cannot be penalized"

    Wildcard is up in the air I feel, Im not confident we will be that team because alot of huge holes.

    The only sure playoff teams to me are NE, Houston, Denver and Cinncy
    When death smiles upon you, the Infantry man smiles back. WV says Im not a patriot and Jeff Ireland is a Boss so it must be true.

    It really depends on how the draft and the rest of free agency go.

    I thought we were an 8 win team last year, and honestly, I kinda think we are an 8 win team again. Tougher schedule, we don't get Oakland, Seattle and Jacksonville at home. That was 2 gimme wins right there and a very significant edge on a team we matched up well with in the Seahawks.

    If Tannehill makes strides I think 10 wins is a realistic probability. If he doesn't, 7-8 sounds about right.

    I am not trying to be a homer but I'm not sold on the Pats! I think losing Welker is going to do a lot of damage he and Brady had a unbelievable chemistry they were in each others heads and always in the same page. Danny Armawhatshisnuts has huge shoes to fill while trying to be healthy for a full season. I think people underestimate how key Welker was in getting Gronk and Hernandez mismatches. Not to mention they have no other WRs under contract.

    Welker will hurt them, I agree. I think that is Billy B outsmarting himself. But they are still an 11-12 win team and I don't see Miami improving by 4-5 wins. I will say this, though, I think Miami will finish ahead of the Bengals, and I think it's between Miami, Cincinnati and Indy for the two wild card positions. We'll see. I don't know what is going on with the Steelers and Ravens but my gut is that one of them will surprise everyone and come out strong.

    I agree the Pats wont be the same , I just dont think we take a big enough leap to cactch them. We changed out linebackers and neither is an improvement in coverage and dont have a cb on roster that should be an nfl starter

    You can add Texans to that list I am not sold on them! I see them taking a huge step back this year with the Ravems and Steelers.

    good passing teams are going to destroy the secondary unless you have a great pass rush. even when smith and vonte were actually having a good season they still got destoryed. the difference in having our secondary destoryed last season and having them destroyed this season is that perhaps we'll be able to keep putting points on the board.
