The Bengals are going to be a tough out for any team. They could easily beat Miami. As well as LAC & NE could give problems to Miami. 

 

Tua versus Belicheat?  Good luck rook. You'll need it.

That must have been written by some guy with a high football IQ!

https://www.yahoo.com/sports/week-8-takeaways-give-it-up-for-the-dolphins-the-best-team-in-the-afc-east-183728407.html   Week 8 takeaways: The Dolphins are the best team in the AFC East

How is it we have one win in our last 4 weeks, yet we are 6-2?

I honestly think the Dolphins have a very good chance of losing their next two, and then hopefully this conversation stops entirely outside of the usual troll attemps. We're just going to hand them wins against the Cardinals and Chargers now? I'd take both of the opposing QBs

Bills have 6 wins plus tie breaker, Fins have 4 wins. How is that not a 2.5 lead?

I guess you weren’t a math major. I’m just trying to help people out with the math. Don’t make it worse by jumping in when you’re wrong.

I dunno but the math I see from above says 2 games ahead as in 6 wins versus 4 wins....eff the .5 game crap.  Oh yeah and that game in hand.  This theoretical crap is just that.......

Another math major I see

Miami has the #1 scoring defense... But that involved shutting out the flacco jets.  They've also played 1 fewer game than buffalo.  Their yards per play is similar to buffalos.  They blitz more than buffalo, and pressure less. 


Basically they're better on 3rd down - but that number is a bit propped up by the 2/17 that the flacco jets put up against them - and takeaways.  Takeaways are always going to be relatively random.

 

Much like buffalo of last year, their numbers may be propped up a bit by the bad offenses they face.  I'd much rather face that defense than Indy, Pitt, Baltimore, hell even KC.

Sure this is what I see happening as of today based on how they are playing and how ridiculously easy the rest of the schedule is on paper:

 

@ AZ - Win (given current momentum and catching AZ off bye week but could lose)

SD - Win

@ Den - Win

@ NYJ - Win

CIN - Win

KC - Loss (but they will give them a fight and have the defense to stop Mahomes and have a chance to possibly win late)

NE - Win

@ Oak - Loss (more of a toss up though really but can't see the Dolphins necessarily getting to 12-4)

@ Buf - Win

 

Final record 11-5, 1st place in AFC East

 

The stretch of four straight games between SD  and CIN is where I believe they seize control of the division for good and build at least a 2 game lead over the Bills especially if they also win in AZ this week as I project and the Bills hit the skids against a very tough stretch which I also project.

Weak predictions. Lets checkyour win predictions

AZ- I have that down for a LOSS for the dolphins. Until shown otherwise the Dolphins cannot stop mobile QB's

SD- I have that down as a LOSS for the Dolphins. Dolphins cant even stop Allen and Herbert is similar to Allen 

@Den. I can see that as a WIN for the Dolphins

@Jets WIN

Cin- LOSS

KC- LOSS see AZ, SD No way is Dolphins slowing KC down

NE- WIN

Oak- WIN - Agree toss up. Depends on what Raiders team shows up

Buf- LOSS. Allen owns the Dolphins Period.

 

So that is 4 more losses on your schedule min would put the Dolphins at max 9-7. Bills would have finish 2-6 down in the last eight games to for the Dolphins to finish ahead of the Bills. Bills aren't playing well right now but 2-6 is NOT happening.

Well I certainly appreciate you putting it down to reference later.

 

and also for outing yourself as a Dolphin's fan 0:)

 

Just two follow up questions, if you are so concerned about how teams are winning re: Bills, how can you look at Tua's performance and think that offense is going to produce enough to win these games?  Or should the Dolphins expect a defensive and special teams td each week?  If you care so much about performance, I would think you would look at that Dolphin's game and say yikes they were far outplayed but got some timely turnovers that produced points.

 

6-0 > 4-3

4-0 > 1-3

1-0 > 0-1

 

i'm definitely not a dolphins fan and not sure why a few other posters keep saying this.

 

To answer your questions.....like I've said, it's very scary proposition that the Dolphins can win and dominate a team like the Rams with a rookie QB making his first start and looking less than stellar. Tells me they would have won by an even larger margin if they stuck with Fitz, so just think about how good they will look if Tua is on par with Allen's first two years in the league.

 

And yes, they are well coached and in position to make plays a variety of ways. One week it's offense, the next it's defense, ST, etc...the trademark of a complete team that is well coached and poised to make a serious run. A good comparison I've made is the 98 Parcells Jets team that started 0-2, 2-3 before going on a tear and finishing 12-4 en route to the AFC championship. This is the type of run I forsee the Dolphins being in the midst of right now.

 

Regarding the Bills as I've said, when does a McDermott coached team get big plays like fumble/INT returned for TD's? Yes we've had an uptick in turnovers the last few weeks against inferior opponents which directly led to us winning. But we don't get any splash plays to demoralize and throttle a team like the Dolphins have been doing which is key.

Before some fans proclaim that the Dolphins are the AFC EAST Champs,  let's look at their new starting QB. Injury prone, 6" 217 lbs.

 

No training camp so he has had very limited experience running an NFL offense.

 

Against the Rams, 12 of 22 for 93 yards, 1 TD and a QBR of 25.0. Two runs for 0 yards. 

 

Their starting RB against the Rams Miles Gaskin had 18 carries for 47 yards, a 2.6 YPC avg. 

 

The Miami special teams scored 3 TDs and the Rams were forced to play catch up. Meanwhile the Rams rolled up 471 yards vs Miami offense 145 yards. 

 

Tua has shown nothing yet so lets wait a few games before saying anything more. Fitz did have a hot hand and now thrown away like a dishrag he might not have that hot hand anymore.

 

Just relax and wait and see.

Rams are a top 10 offense, San Fran is #12 and ahead of the Bills.

 

The scoring defense is the key metric regardless of the yardage they are given up, and if this holds up or even marginally declines it certainly puts them on pace for the 10+ as I expect. Factor in the big plays on turnovers (scoring TD's) and it makes them a difficult opponent to face even against the few good teams left on their schedule like the Chiefs.

It will be interesting to see how everybody's predictions pan out in regards to the division race.

 

But consider how real (and loud) the dolphins winning the division talk will become if the bills lose this week against seahawks (highly probable) and Dolphins win in AZ (somewhat probable). They would be tied in the loss column with Dolphins having played one less game. Bills game against the Cardinals becomes an even higher pressure situation for the Bills especially if they lose coming out of the bye against the Dolphins.

I mean i look at this and see tough games except for the Jets.  

 

Zona - a tough matchup for anyone with Murray running around, hopkins, and a pretty solid D.

SD - 2 beast WRs and a QB who's playing as well as any rookie in recent memory.

Den - Not a good team, but the type of team who is capable of beating a good team on a good day.  

Cin - Same as denver.  

KC - On to NE

NE - Already beat miami. Rookie QB's tend to struggle against NE as well

Oak - They can pound the rock against miami

Buf - Already lost to buffalo.

 

If they had a good offense I'd feel more confident on their ability to win more than like 4 of these games.  But they don't - and that should be a concern.  They have to play mistake-free and score like 20 points.  2-2 when they turn it over, and one win was against the Jets.  The other was the rams game where they scored twice on D/ST - and had TD drives of 33 and 1 yards.  Punting 9 times in a game isn't usually a recipe for a W.  

 

They had 2 really good offensive outputs against Buffalo and SF, and they have a new QB so its hard to even project what their offense might be.  Fitz was probably their best player in both games, and the reason they won.  They can't run the ball well, and they do it anyway.  I dunno, hard team to figure out.

Well see. Regardless of what happens on Sunday Bills will be in 1st place in the AFC EAST with the BILLS still playing the Cards the next week. You have already lost to Seattle so thats that. Dolphins may have a few easier games due to playing a 4th place schedule this year but it wont matter.

We already torched that defense with Allen throwing the ball all over the field on deep overs. They play a ton of man. Good luck with that against us.

i don't think the Dolphins talk is out of hand at all.

 

Excellent young coach, good young players, big time draft capital. The arrow is WAY up for Miami.

 

Maybe for next year but not this year.  Next year they could be a real problem...

September Josh Allen throwing into November's defenses would not be a good look.

 

September Josh was throwing into man-to-man single coverage deep. If he throws the same pass to the same receiver at the same spot now it's defenced or intercepted by the double coverage teams are applying deep.

 

yes, but 310 yards per game and 3 td passes would be a great look.

 

I know Thurm it is not like throwing on switch and/or just changing a game plan, but it is true what I say and th "talk" would change dramatically.

 

I guess what I am saying is that if you consider yourself now a pass first team, then no pass fist team should be content with hibernating after the first week of October.

Bills had top 5 scoring D last year. I would rather have a more explosive QB like JA this year. QB’s and O win in playoffs. Tua is better than Jets QB In remaining 9 games. Maybe Pats, but big game pressure is going to continue to ramp up. Dolphins went all in with Tua to evaluate vs going for it all with Fitz. Absolutely a team on the rise, but it’s a 16 game season with ebbs and flows. I like Bills chances and realistically think Dolphins will compete for 7th spot.

Easily?  Perhaps hopefully.  Certainly not easily.

 

I think they lose to the Cardinals, Chargers, Chiefs, Raiders and the Bills.  Now, the Bills might very well rest their starters in that last game of the season, so that one might be up for grabs, depending on how the Bills play out their regular season.

 

Denver can certainly beat them in Denver.  NE has already beaten them once and you know Coach B will scare the beejeebees out of Tua.

Dolphins are a good team right now but not a great team. They are a team that can beat most teams any given Sunday or lose any given Sunday at a higher clip than most. I am not a believer at all in TUA. I'll put that on the record. He had ALLSTARS all around in college and that may not happen in the NFL

16,000 out of 540,000. Each survivors share is now $67. I'm thinking if I make it to the end there will be 1,000 people or less left to share the million.

16k left now?  9 more weeks to play?  That number will be way less than 1,000.

 

Less than 3% made it through 8 weeks.  8 more weeks....3% of 16 k is under 500 and that leaves one more week so call it 400.  On top of that every week gets harder because you can't repeat teams.  My guess is 100 split it, not 1000.  Good luck.
