Way Too Early: Dolphins Edition
class="post-date-wrap left relative post-date-mob">

This really isn’t worth the keystrokes expended to create it but, why the hell not!
 
The Fins had a historically bad OL and run game last year. Our D took a bit of time to get rolling. The net result was a 7-game losing streak, followed by a 7-game winning streak, finishing 9-8, one game out of the playoffs.
 
This season, our opportunistic, turn-over focused D remains mostly intact. Talent-wise, we have undoubtedly improved on O. Is our coach and new O scheme “the bomb” it seems to be? Will a better supporting cast help Tua win more than 65% of the games he plays in? I’m not 100% sure, BUT t’is the season for eternal optimism… Jeebus knows we all can use some positive energy.
 

W 24-13 vs NE…

Tua improves to 4-0 vs Pats (1-0)
 

W 21-17 @ Baltimore…

had we not annihilated them last year, when our D seemed to figure out Jackson, I’d have this as a loss (2-0)
 

L 27-21 vs Buff…

I believe the blow-outs are over, but I think the Bills continue their win streak vs the fins (2-1)
 

L 30-24 @ Cincy…

this is a coin toss to me as I’m not 100% sold on the Bengals, despite being 100% sold on Burrow, but I don’t want to be too homerish here (2-2)
 

W 31-17 @ Jets…

Jets are an improving team and could surprise this year. Just don’t think we lose to them (3-2)
 

W 24-14 vs Minnesota…

I believe our D will give Cousins fits. Plus, it’ll be too HOT for the Vikes (4-2)
 

W 34-10 vs Pitt…

I have a ton of respect for Tomlin, but I think his run of fielding competitive teams ends this year (5-2)
 

W 27-7 @ Detroit…

The Lions could be our jags from last year, but I don’t think so (6-2)
 

W 24-10 @ Chicago…

Their D could be solid again… their O, not so much (7-2)
 

L 24-21 vs Clev…

Deshaun Kraft is back from suspension we could be in tough. I want to say W but won’t (7-3)
 

W 42-7 vs Hou…

statement win for the O (8-3)
 

W 17-10 @ SF…

tough west coast game. Our D wins us one (9-3)
 

L 31-21 @ L.A…

Won’t win both on the left coast. (9-4)
 

L 27-24 @ Buff…

I really do think we find a way to split with Buff this year, but I’m trying to be realistic in terms of overall record, so I’ll keep CJ happy (9-5)
 

L 24-21 vs GB…

this is really a coin toss for me. The respect I have for Rodgers prevails (9-6)
 

W 27-13 @ NE…

still feels weird picking sweeps over NE, but I really do think we’re the better team (10-6)
 

W 31-27 vs Jets…

O/Tua save the day in a must win game. Fins finish 11-6 and make the playoffs!
 
Nu doot aboot it!
