    Walter Football's Miami Dolphins Season Preview......

    2013 NFL Season Preview:

    Veteran Additions:
    WR Mike Wallace, WR Brandon Gibson, TE Dustin Keller, OT Tyson Clabo, G Lance Louis, DT Vaughn Martin, OLB Philip Wheeler, ILB Dannell Ellerbe.
    Early Draft Picks:
    DE/OLB Dion Jordan, CB Jamar Taylor, G/OT Dallas Thomas, CB Will Davis, OLB Jelani Jenkins, TE Dion Sims, RB Mike Gillislee, K Caleb Sturgis. Dolphins Rookie Forecast
    Offseason Losses:
    RB Reggie Bush, WR Davone Bess, WR Marlon Moore, TE Anthony Fasano, OT Jake Long, DT Tony McDaniel, OLB Kevin Burnett, ILB Karlos Dansby, CB Sean Smith, S Jonathan Amaya, K Nate Kaeding.

    2013 Miami Dolphins Offense:
    The Dolphins apparently didn't care what many detractors had to say about Ryan Tannehill - how he had a high bust rate; that he would be a major reach at No. 8; how he wouldn't be ready to play until 2013 - the front office pulled the trigger and is now looking like it may have the last laugh. Tannehill's overall rookie numbers weren't great - 3,294 yards, 14 touchdowns (12 passing, 2 rushing), 13 interceptions - but he finished the season on a hot streak, compiling seven scores to just two picks in his final five games. Tannehill has reportedly spent a lot of time improving his footwork in the spring, which should theoretically cut down on some of his errant throws.

    No, Grimes wasn't even mentioned as a veteran addition in the portion you posted. That was enough for me.

    2013 Miami Dolphins Analysis: Big free-agent spending sprees can be treacherous. On one hand, Miami's roster has definitely improved with the additions that Jeff Ireland made. On the other hand, the new players will have to gel together, all while expectations are sky high. Big expectations from an untested team usually means big failure, as the 2011 Philadelphia Eagles learned. There's a chance the Dolphins could make the playoffs this season, but it's more likely that they'll choke under this new pressure.
    Sounds like Junc's reasoning. They could make the playoffs......but they probably won't.

    Based on past performance and history, I think it's reasonable to say.

    It's bet hedging, but that's what everyone does these days.

    If it was always just about the past the same teams would win every year and the same ****ty teams would remain so.

    8-8 is the cop out prediction. If they aren't sure what the Dolphins are going to do, don't give an answer that can go either way.

    Why couldn't 8-8 be a reasonable prediction?

    If you guessed that prior to last year you'd be pretty close.

    Past performance is a fairly good indicator of future performance. Not the only one, to be sure, but a reasonable
    one to consult with and base an opinion from.

    It is a cop out because if you predict 8-8 for just about any team in the league you will be within 2 games of being correct for a little more than 50 percent of any team in the league ....I'm trying to say that in the age of NFL parity the majority of teams will finish with records from 6-10 to 10-6, so an 8-8 prediction still makes the talking heads sound like they know what they are talking about, even if they don't. For example last year more than half the league finished with a record in that range...i think it was like 17 or 18 of the 32 teams.

    Where did this come from:
    There are plenty of bad things about Wallace - his high percentage of dropped passes and his loser attitude
    Not a ringing endorsement:
    There's a chance the Dolphins could make the playoffs this season, but it's more likely that they'll choke under this new pressure.

    Projection: 8-8 (TBA in AFC East)
