Post Playoffs still in reach for distracted Miami Dolphins
Quote:
Inside the Dolphins locker room late last week, Nolan Carroll quietly acknowledged what few of his teammates -- and certainly not his coach -- would admit publicly:
This whole bullying scandal has indeed been a distraction, and it’s probably the steepest challenge the organization has faced in Carroll’s four years in Miami.
“We don’t really know what’s going on, but you get family members texting you,” Carroll explained. “You get family members’ friends texting them to text you and ask you what’s going on, and you don’t really know. You can’t really control it.
Carroll continued: “We’re trying to avoid that stuff and not get distracted by it. At times, it has been hard. We’re tuning it out. We’re starting to figure out what’s done is done. We can’t change that. We’re just need to worry about what we can control right now.”
Here’s what the Dolphins can control: Their playoff fate.
But they can come awfully close.
Despite the catastrophic events of the past month and a half -- losses in five out of six games and the Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin saga -- the Dolphins are just a game out of the playoffs with seven to play.
And there’s more: They have three games still on the schedule against teams ahead of them on the standings, including two against the Jets, who are currently the No. 6 seed. ...

Going to the playoffs excited me when I thought this team was building toward something. Now I just get the feeling yet ANOTHER rebuilding is coming this offseason no matter what happens on the field, and looking for something around .500 next season again, because that's all you can expect from a team in the rebuilding process.

we'll be picking top 12 in the draft for one more year. And we need it too. To get a left tackle early on in the draft. Try and rebuild the line through picks and free agency. Come back next year retooled with Tannehill another year smarter and stronger.

There's no logical reason to see us competing for a playoff spot............maybe they find a way to get a win today and give us a bit of hope.........But let's face it..........this team is pretty bad.................losing 5 of the last 6 including a loss to the worst team in the league and a home loss to one of the worst teams with a practice string QB.

Not considering FA.

Miami needs to go LT, DLman, Guard in the 2014 draft. The latter two are interchangeable based on talent at the time.

I wonder if there's any other fan group that is more knowledgeable about the draft. We have the edge............come November, it's our main topic of conversation.

I agree....sprinkle in a large receiver and a well rounded tight end too.

Ha! I hate it when my mind drifts to the draft in November. I'd rather it not, but alas we are Dolphin fans.
