what reccord would be considered a good year, great year

what reccord would be considered a good year, great year 


well  football is upon us  needless to say  I have seen every afc east team play except Miami   and don't  know why   Miami  hasn't been on any channels yet.   I guess  the afc east  just has 3 teams now , but I still want to see the team play .

off my soap box now  and will ask a question or two.  first   would it be safe to assume  that Miami    wont be on prime time this year ?   I at least would like to see Miami on thanksgiving  and on Monday  night football.

with last year being a disappointing year  how many wins  must Miami  have  in order for Philbin  to save his job ?

if  we look good at a record of  9-7  but  miss the  playoffs.  is his job safe ?   I expect  to win  10 wins  but that is  if we have no major suspensions or injuries.

if we go  8-8  and miss the playoffs  and don't look that much better  where do we stand .

my hope was  to win 9  to 11 games  but I cant count on  that.   if Miami wins only 6 wins or less what will this mean in terms of changes.

9-7 is the only way Philbin stays missing the playoffs. One other way is a catastrophic injury to a major player but we come on strong at the end of the season but just miss the playoffs. I could see the staff staying in that manner
based on end of season coaching. I think if we are injury free (relatively), we could be an 11 win team also.
 If we win only 6 and dont have multiple major injuries? Hickey gets to hire his own staff. Or maybe elevate Lazor if the O was good.

I love my Dolphins more than most but I'm also going to be a realist and say, no running game, offensive line isnt good and our defense can't stop the run and I'm concerned about our safties!! However, we do have a great punter. THat being said I don;t see more than 6 or 7 wins this year. Hopefully I'm wrong.

Go Dolphins!
Roll Tide Roll!

I'm once again going to say 10 wins, but ONLY if that gets us in the playoffs. No playoffs= BAD YEAR.

The table was set last season for 10-6, but instead we laid an egg.

I've given up guessing what our record will be until the team develops some consistency and stops losing the games it should win easily. The end of last season proved that it's a risky guess.

If Philbin & Co. produce a solid effort sans the stupidity of "go, go" and such, that's all I ask. If the problems of Tannehill/Wallace, the running game, the OL and the inexplicable defensive collapses improve then we don't have to make the playoffs for me to be willing to give them more time to make us respectable. But they need to get their a**es in gear. I ain't gonna live forever.

11-5= great
10-6=good
9-7=would depend on how we looked going 9-7
8-8 or worse=clean house

Re: what reccord would be considered a good year, great year 


In all honesty I have low expectations so I would go like this.... great year: 10-11 wins    good year- 9 wins    decent- 8 wins     honest expeectaion 6 wins

I just do not think we are a good football team. We have questions at virtually every position except for DE and WR. I still cannot get the taste of the way we played at the end of last season. I think our offense will be a lot better with Lazor running the show but I am in no way sold on Tannehill let alone the Tannehill Wallace connection that we need to have a fighting chance.

I disagree. We are better than last year, we should win 9 or 10 games. There is no way we got worse, the run game doesn't look good right now I will give you that but otherwise we look fine to me. Our passing game looks so much better and I think it's going to open up the run game on e it gets going. We have 5 good wide receivers very much like the Packers minus the world class QB but Tannehill is not bad. I think we can win 10 at worst 8.

I don't think you can say, well we are improved over last year which will automatically TRANSLATE into more wins.
To be honest, the rest of the division also improved, plus the schedule looks tougher.

I absolutely agree with your year end analysis, 8-8 equals keep lazr, keep the real players, fire phil/get a new DC

Im sold on LAZR, im willing to give him a multi-year deal to stay regardless of HC
I realize a new HC would want his own OC

Love to see 11 wins or more. That would be great. It would also be very unrealistic. Tough schedule. Very tough division. Not very good offense of line. Cannot stop the run. Injuries on special teams. Cannot run the ball consistently.
There are just way too many holes. I think it's more like eight and eight

Even if RT doesn't vastly improve, this offense is much improved.

Albert and James become some of the best bookends in the league. Pouncey comes back healthy. There is stability at LG.

Moreno brings much needed veteran RB leadership as well as excellent protection and production in the passing game. Miller improves under Lazor's scheme.

Landry becomes a very good #2, making Hartline a very good #3. Making Clay even that much more dangerous.

The DL doesn't miss a beat with Mitchell replacing Soliai.

The LBs start getting spelled by Jenkins and Tripp.

The young guys at corner develop, even if only a little.




This defense doesn't need to improve by much. The offense has palpable improvement in all areas. And maybe that's going to help RT improve...
