I just cannot see it, and it may be that I have Dolphins lasik surgery to my eyes. In some ways I am a homer and I believe that if the stars all align, we can make the playoffs. Unfortunately, that is not what we should be shooting for. We should be shooting for a Super Bowl championship, and this team is not a championship team.
The only way that I see a 3.9 league worst season happening is if Tannehill gets injured again and LB Raekwan McMillian gets injured as well. Aside from losing Suh and Landry, the team is better. Tannehill has his best OL in front of him as well. I'm a Gase believer, although he needs to get the penalties under control. If he wants to be another "Don Shula", then this team needs discipline.
If the Dolphins were to tank as the worst team in the NFL this year, then I think Tannenbaum and Greer are both gone. Unless Gase's team looks inept, I think he will be back for another year, but it would depend on the new GM. I think Ross' problem in the past is shackling a GM with a coach he didn't choose. So, if you want a win/win situation on your hands, put some good money on your Dolphins. If they win, you'll be happy. If they lose, your wallet (& wife) will be happy. Let's be happy.

Another day, another oddsmaker lowballing the Dolphins.http://www.sun-sentinel.com/sports/dave ... story.html
This time, Action Network says it ran 10,000 computer simulations of the NFL season and found the Dolphins to be … the worst projected team in the league. They measured 3.9 wins.
That’s far below the over-under of 6 wins you can find with some.
And it makes long-shot Super Bowl odds seem, well, almost favorable.
New England (11.8 wins), Philadelphia (11.1) and Pittsburgh (10.5) were projected to be the top three teams, via the BetLabs computers.
The bottom three: Cleveland (4.7), Indianapolis (4.4) and, down there, the Dolphins.
The program “simulated the 2018 NFL season 10,000 times using the Bet Labs model that adjusts player and team statistics for strength of schedule.”
You want some good news? The Bet Labs computers aren’t always right. Last year, they projected the Dolphins to get 7.8 wins (and Super Bowl champ Philadelphia to get 7.7 wins). The Dolphins finished 6-10, though in fairness the computers did their work with the expectation Ryan Tannehill would be quarterback.
