Post My Early Prediction For 2010 Dolphins Schedule!
I was reading an article on examiner.com, and in the article they broke down our 2010 opponents. In their report they had us going 11-5 on the season. I initially thought this seemed like a stretch considering the fact that we went 7-9 last season. But if you really look at it, there are no major upsets here. We don't upset anyone in their backyard, and when we do beat someone that could be seen as a better team it's always on our home field. Us going 11-5 and making the playoffs this year doesn't seem so far fetched if you ask me.

I agree with the possible outcome of all those games. However, I wouldn't be surprised to see them do one better and end 12-4. I could see the Dolphins winning the game against the Vikings if either Favre doesn't come back or has one of his pick happy days.

I have no hopes for a 12-4 or 11-5 season...a 10-6 is how far my imagination will take me and a wildcard spot : ) those darn Pats just can't be ignored, imo

I could see that happening too. We could wind up 10-6 with a wildcard spot. All I'm saying is that with this schedule the way it's set up we have a good shot at having better success than last year. Making the playoffs is within reach in my opinion. How far we go from there is up in the air. It all comes down to staying healthy and not turning the ball over in my opinion. In 2008 the major factor was we stayed realtively healthy and we didn't turn the ball over. If we can repeat those two things then we have a very good football team!

I'm thinking we'll be lucky to be 10-6. There's too many questions marks about this defense.

I see us at 2-2 going into the bye week, with a loss from Minnesota and either NYJ or NE. We should come out strong after the bye and take care of Green Bay and get on a nice winning streak to carry us to at least 10 wins.

Everybody automatically puts a Loss next to the Pakcer game. Remeber guys, not only are we going to be coming off of a bye week but we will be coming off of 2 straight home games, meaning this team should be fresh and ready to go. It won't be a cold weather game either.

I actually think that we have a chance in that game, although my early Super Bowl prediction is GB beating SD.

Lol.......and he isn't the only coach out there who can't seem to win in the playoffs no matter how much talent they have handed to them......the other is none other than W.Phillips......Cowboys & Chargers are on there way down. :boo:

Excellent point, the Packers are definitely not a lock to beat us. If we're firing on all cylinders in that game we could easily beat them. Not to mention that the Vikings game is far from a lock for them also. If Favre doesn't return that team will be in limbo. Without Favre all we have to do is stack the line and shut AP down. Not an easy task I know but it can be done.

At least your predictions are a little more realistic than the Jets fans,I found this while surfing some other AFC sites http://espn.go.com/blog/afceast/post/_/ ... delusional
A pretty entertaining read if nothing else..

The Jet fans are in for a rude awakening. IMO, they got worse this offseason. All of their additions are questionable. Their subtractions.. some of them are still REALLY good players.. their replacements can't touch them.

Miami is the youngest team in the east. We are on the up. The Jet fans will be sorely disappointed when we end their season.. yet again.

I agree, we are constantly improving and preparing for the future at the same time. The Jets are pawning their future for a chance at maybe getting back to where they were last year. I too think the Jets are in for a rude awakening. If it weren't for us losing so many starters to injury we would have easily wound up in second place in the division last year and got the AFC wildcard. I think it's going to come down to us and New England this year. The Jets will probably wind up 9-7 or 8-8, maybe worse.

Here is what I think the AFC East will look like at the end of the year:
1. Miami 11-5
2. New England 10-6
3. New York 8-8
4. Buffalo 5-11

I don't think 11-5 is out of the realm of reasonable possibilities. It is a much easier schedule than last year. I am still disappointed that they did not give us any early season 1pm kickoffs. Those games pose a big advantage for Miami.

However, things I really want

1) A sweep of the jests
2) at least a split with NE
3) a win at Baltimore
4) a win in GB (I am flying from Florida to go to this game!)

I absolutely agree with this!

Jets get rid of a proven 1,500 yard back in Thomas Jones for an aging past his prime LT.

They replace the ball-hawking Kerry Rhodes and the solid Lito Shepard with Antonio "my last good season was four years ago" Cromartie.

They release pro-bowl OG Alan Faneca and replace him with a rookie OT from Massachusetts who is going to be converted to play guard.

Further, it is looking like their most consistent DL Shaun Ellis wont be back either.

I honestly had a good laugh when we swept them last year. They mortgaged the future by trading draft picks for good players ... and couldn't beat us. Sure, we got a little lucky in that Ginn had his best game as a kick returner against one of the best coached special teams in the NFL. Then, they back-doored into the playoffs by playing two teams that rested their starters for the playoffs, but they mesmerized the NFL by playing very well in the playoffs. I'm not sure if they can repeat it, but they will have a good team.

I"m hoping for another sweep over the Jets.

My range is kinda like yours.......if healthy I can see 10 or 11 wins......too many injuries and the Fins could win 7 games again!

I also have a lot of questions about the D with so many new faces in the starting rotation.......will all these guys, rooks and vets, mesh well together on D? I know Nolan is the MAN as D-coordinator and all, but he has to make a good D using a lot of very young players in key positions.
