The Miami Dolphins have started off the season 0-4.  Prior to playing the first four games, Dolphans knew that three of the four games were going to be tough.  The Patriots, Texans, and Chargers were going to be top teams this year and difficult to beat — especially, having to play the Chargers in San Diego.  Playing the Browns in Cleveland was one game the Dolphins could and should win.

Well, the Dolphins lost the three tough games.  And, they could have won the Browns game losing 17-16 in the final minute of the game.  Here is a summary of the first four games that includes the score along with the opponent’s current record and current winning/losing streak.  The three tough opponents are in first place and the Browns are one game out of first place.  The Dolphins are already three games back in the loss column in the AFC East with twelve games remaining — but, seven of the twelve games are against AFC East teams.

Day Date Opponent Score Record Streak
Mon Sept 12 NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS 24 – 38 4 – 1 Won 2
Sun Sept 18 HOUSTON TEXANS 13 – 23 3 – 2 Lost 1
Sun Sept 25 at Cleveland Browns 16 – 17 2 – 2 Lost 1
Sun Oct 2 at San Diego Chargers 16 – 26 4 – 1 Won 3

Despite starting out the season 0 – 4, the next four games are ones the Dolphins can win.  Here is a summary of the upcoming schedule with the opponent’s current record and winning/losing streak.

    The jests worry me more now at 2-3 than they would have had they beat the Pats and been 3-2. They KNOW that 4 losses this early will make it VERY difficult to get into the playoffs, if we do beat them, we are 1-4, and they are 2-4…

    The Dolphins aren’t going 10-6 or 9-7 this year, I’m sorry. These games look winnable on paper and in a league like the NFL, any team can win any given week, but I’m sorry, this is just a bad team. All over the field. The one player who was playing halfway decent this year is now out for the year.

    You keep saying “if”. If the offense does this, if the defense does this. The defense is not going to all of a sudden decide to turn into the top 5 defense of a year ago, and IF the offense could learn to score in the red zone, well they would’ve done it already.

    I think there is pretty good chance the Phins could win. The Jets are fighting with each other, they can’t run the ball, and their QB goes through long periods when he sucks. As for Revis Island, their pass defense, Welker and Brady touched them and the Pats ran up huge yardage on the ground.

    I have been a loyal Miami Dolphins since 1971 and have loved to watch them win and hurt when they lost. I was really hoping they would not let me down and embarrass their loyal fans this year. I am very disappointed with their play this season, especially Brandon Marshall, He outright SUCKS. If I were the coach I would get rid of him fast. A receiver is paid to catch the football and Marshall drops too many passes. To top it off Marshall has NO confidence. The entire team is self destructing and if they loose to the Jets tonight, which so far they are sucking bad as usual, then I believe they may very well loose every game this season. I think they could use a new coaching staff and the front office needs to make much better decisions. Maybe they need to look at how the most successful teams and coaching staffs work and follow a winning example instead of thinking they know everything.
