Ross had plenty of embarrassing moments last year when he entertained friends and family at his games. He doesn't want a whole season of them. 5 wins is what I've predicted for this team.

According to a team source, even though owner Stephen Ross would like to land a top QB in the 2020 draft (unless Josh Rosen suddenly blossoms), he does not want this season to be an embarrassment to the extent that his team is historically bad or blown out repeatedly. He especially doesn’t want to be embarrassed in home games.
Because of that, Ross has told the coaches to try to win. He believes if the Dolphins end up with, say, five wins, it’s OK because Miami can trade some of its treasure trove of 2020 draft picks (including two second-, third- and fourth-rounders) to trade up for a quarterback if Rosen doesn’t prove to be the longterm solution.
