Miami Dolphins 2015-2016
Saturday, August 28, 2015, 9:48 AM: 11-5
regular season (tie for first in AFC East); win first playoff game and put
up a good fight in the second round; this team is building, building,
building and is definitely on the verge of something great; haters can keep
on hating but, in the end, they'll succumb to the DYNASTY that is the MIAMI
Sunday, February 9, 2014, 11:45 AM: After a disappointing 2013 campaign, I'm not sure what to think. My current prediction will be based solely on hope. I hope the Dolphins can do next season what they didn't do last season--an 11-5 record and a playoff berth. Offensive coordinator Mike Sherman was fired and GM Jeff Ireland is gone. I don't agree with those decisions, but I can only hope that the replacements will be driven to succeed. I hope and pray that Alex's senior year will be a year to celebrate many Dolphin wins. I enjoyed only six wins during my senior year in high school, but I'd love to see Alex get at least eleven during his!
My Prediction for the Miami Dolphins 2013-2014 NFL Season:
Saturday, October 26, 2013: I just noticed that I hadn't entered my official prediction for this current Dolphin season, but I remember very well what I thought before the season began:
I predicted an 11-5 season. Unlike most people who think their team will steadily improve, I expected early and consistent success due to the great additions made to the team--Ellerbe, Wheeler, Wallace, Gibson, and more. I believe the days of slow progress are over; teams can become great quickly (see the 2013 Kansas City Chiefs who were 2-14 last season). It takes a few talented players and a new philosophy/scheme/belief.
The Dolphins are now 3-3 and play at 5-2 New England tomorrow. This makes for a perfect opportunity to get well again. I still believe the Dolphins can achieve a 10-6 mark, but winning tomorrow is imperative. Go Dolphins!
Update: Sunday, February 9, 2014, 11:40 AM: It is one week after Seattle destroyed Denver in Super Bowl 48 and I'm looking at my prediction for the 2013-14 season. I must say that I was on the brink of success; however, after going 8-6, the Dolphins couldn't get by two teams that they should've beaten. The Dolphins had an excellent run late in the season with wins over San Diego, Pittsburgh, and New England. Then came the flop. They simply didn't have enough playmakers to get it done. The bullying issue played a role. How couldn't it? Losing two of five starters on the offensive line in the middle of season has to affect any team...and those two guys were healthy. Purely disappointing. Hurts. Even after football season has ended, I'm hurting. Time heals. And that's what I need right now.
The NFL schedule was released today, April 17, 2012. EXCITEMENT REIGNS!! I am extremely happy with the schedule. The bye week is more toward the middle of the season for the first time in years. The FINS get to beat on the hated wets early in the season. And, most importantly, I can take the two trips I was hoping for--on the weekends of Columbus Day and Veterans' Day. Awesome, Baby! Looking at the Dolphins, not so much the schedule, I am hopeful for a 9-7 season. They should be in playoff contention through December, but they might need a full season under new head coach Joe Philbin in order to find their groove. I want consistent improvement and, just maybe, the FINS might find themselves in position for a Super Bowl run once Rhianna is in eighth grade. No matter what, I'll enjoy cheering the FINS on each and every week with Alex. I can't wait!!
Miami Dolphins 2010-2011
NFL Season: SUPER BOWL VICTORY!!
I CANNOT WAIT!!
With many young players now having valuable experience, this Dolphins team will be ready to return to the biggest single-day event in the United States of America. I truly love this franchise and these guys...and I know how much all of the great Fin fans across the world deserve the joy of a CHAMPIONSHIP SEASON!! GO FINS!!!
|Dolphins Training Camp opened yesterday, Friday, July 30, 2010. The road to Super Bowl glory is on! I have every reason in the world to be excited about this Fin team. Ronnie Brown-healthy. Patrick Cobbs-healthy. Chad Henne-experienced. Jake Long-prime. Karlos Dansby-new defensive leader. Brandon Marshall-new offensive leader. Everybody else-youth, experience, and desire. What a great time to be a Dolphins fan!! I can't wait to soak up every bit of Dolphin action that's out there. A special season awaits, indeed, and to think I'll have my nephew Alex in eighth grade to share this with makes it heaven. GO FINS...stay healthy.|
