They could win them too.  They could win 3 and lose 1, win 2 and lose 2, lose 3 and win 1.

 

Good chance they'll be tied with us after tomorrows game, 6 wins in a row with a defense that's given up over 80 points less than we have .


Such a good chance Denver pretty much had their way with them all day. A microcosm of the Fish’s last few games minus the results on the scoreboard.

Dolphins are a 8-8 to 9-7 team this year

 

They will probably still get to 8-4 given the next two games but after that it's going to be much more difficult which I initially didn't believe based on how they were playing during their win streak.

 

Bills are really going to have to up the ante and win some games they shouldn't the rest of the way to ensure they secure the division.

I would still say a team at home, on a 6 game win streak, favored to win , had a good chance to win. If I said 100% chance to win, then you would have an argument.

one doesn’t need to watch an entire game to see people gushing over a guy who has not proven anything in the NFL

 

 

Sure they won 6 in a row 

 

and with the Jets and Cincinnati next probably  win 2 in a row 

 

 It doesn’t prove Tua is great

Their last 4 are certainly tough on paper, but if they win the next three as most expect and get to 9-3 never underestimate the power of momentum especially given their strengths on ST and Defense, turnover differential, point differential, etc. KC is the true measuring stick game that will determine if the Dolphins are an elite team/SB contender this year or probably just in the playoff mix like the Bills and many other 2nd tier teams.

 

The only thing that may truly derail the Dolphins historic run is if Tua gets hurt or starts to truly struggle and put the team in a tough spot with turnovers. But even going back to Fitz wouldn't be the worst option for them given how he's played there the last few years.

Or if the other team doesn't turn the ball over and they make Tua actually have to lead an offense that scores points lol.  They had to bench the dude today because they fell behind are they gonna do that every week that they lose a lead? 

 

Honestly what is historic about their run? Lol has a team never won 6 in a row before? They're literally outside of the playoffs right now and were talking about them being potentially an elite team? 🤣  they may not even be a 'playoff mix' team

I hope they are. Id love to see them sneak in on that extra seed this year and have Josh smack em around. Im 32 and theres some painful Dolphins playoff games in my preteen years.  Revenge tour!

This is going exactly as I said in training camp.  They bought around $235 mil. in players in FA, and had 11 picks.  They have another 10 picks next year.  They will show progress and look like our real division competition in years to come, but that is just too many new faces to be an immediate division winner this year.  I can see with the Jets and Bengals, 8-4.  Then they play the Chiefs, Pats, Raiders, and us.  That adds up to me for around 9-7 and nice progress from last year.  They have a good HC and more talent coming next year.  Tua looked bad yesterday as the Broncos did a nice job disguising coverages and he was confused.  Tua is just going to need game time to make improvements.

 

I still think we finish most likely 11-5 and maybe a stretch at 12-4, the Fins at 9-7, Pats would maybe finish 8-8 as you can only coach up so much with all of that talent gone including Brady, free agent losses and of course the opt outs.  I don’t know if the Jets can even win one game this year.  As Chandler said on another thread, the Jets are historically bad.

I think the bolded above (MIami is going to be really good for years to come) is really just hype.  Real division competition in this day and age requires a good QB.  There is no indication that Miami has that key component - and personally I do not think they have it.  If Tua is not the answer, Miami is a ways away.  They will have to test Tua - and that will end this season in mediocrity.  And then even if they figure it out for next season and pull the plug on him, there will be another couple of seasons to bring in another QB and then get them up to speed.

 

Improvement isn't linear.  It is easier to go from terrible to mediocre, than it is to go from mediocre to good.  Without a real QB they are not div title contenders.  I did not buy into the hype and do not consider them good now.  Adding to that we are watching the whole QB fiasco blow up in their faces as we speak.  Good times.

Not really.  We're probably going to be favored in five of our last six games.  At the beginning of the season, this last six game stretch looked incredibly daunting -- it's still challenging and I don't expect to actually finish 5-1, but it's not really that bad.

 

Edit: I mean, if you told me right now that we were going to beat Miami in week 17 -- a game that we'll be strongly favored to win -- that one win alone gives us essentially a three game lead in the division (two games plus the tiebreaker) with only five more games to play.  It's a lot more accurate to say that all we need to do to win the division at this point is just win the games we're supposed to win.  It doesn't matter what we do against the Steelers or 49ers if we take care of business against the Dolphins, Broncos, and Chargers.

They're 2-4 when the opponent gains more than 350 yards - which isn't even a particularly good outing by an offense.  Buffalo was over that on 7 games, and 2 of the ones they weren't had some poor weather conditions.
