Wildcard, Miami Dolphins:
The Miami Dolphins revamped their entire offense this off-season, courtesy of Mike McDaniel’s vision and Chris Grier’s negotiating. Despite what narratives the media tried to paint, QB Tua Tagovailoa was giving a weak set of cards to start his NFL career.
Going into Tagovailoa’s 3rd year it finally feels like the Dolphins gave him the firepower to compete with the names he is always getting compared to, Justin Herbert, Joe Burrow, and Deshaun Watson.
A lot of the public and the media said Tagovailoa’s success in Alabama was solely due to the fact he had a ‘track team’ of weapons, HC Mike McDaniel must have heard that because in only one off-season he got Tua Tagovailoa a track team of Weapons.
Starring superstar WR Tyreek Hill this offense is going to be an absolute nightmare for other teams, the Dolphins have perhaps the most firepower out of any team. If they don’t they are definitely making a spot for themselves in the top 3.
The roster is ready to go, and the coaching staff is ready to go, it’s up to Tua Tagovailoa now because this team will only go as far as the QB takes them. If Tagovailoa has his much anticipated breakout season Miami could give buffalo and the rest of the conference some problems.
But that’s wishful thinking for now, let’s lower the expectation. If Tagovailoa is any good I’m almost certain this team is holding it’s own for a playoff spot.
Now the question is will the Dolphins make an appearance and get crushed like they usually do? Or are they really coming in to compete and possibly make a run? Only time will tell. This is easily the best built Dolphins roster since the Marino era (on paper) so there’s expectations, no pressure though.
