So, let’s follow that line of thought, (Dolphins making the playoffs AND winning a game) shall we? First, one has to accept that the Patriots will win the division yet again. There’s no freaking way that this team goes through the reigning AFC champs twice, or even three times, should they actually win the division, and by equally dominating the likes of the Packers, Bengals, Jaguars, and Vikings. All by the way, teams that SHOULD win their respective divisions. No way, José! Anything short of that, and I give them that, they sqeak into the playoffs as a Wildcard team and going on the road to beat either Cincinnati, Kansas City, New England, or Jacksonville. Not realistic, based on what we’ve seen so far. Doesn’t pass the smell test.

...as well as everything else.

BB, He’s good enough to provide teams with perpetual 8-8 seasons. My estimate reflects seeing a better defense, rushing and short passing game this year. Going beyond just squeezing into the playoffs requires a different kind of QB. Teams that dominate tend to have Marino-type gun slingers at the helm.

My 9-7 was based on winning the first two games then going 7-7 the rest of the way. If you look at the rest of the schedule, it’s very doable.

The team needs to win two out of three of those to challenge for 9 or 10 wins. Doing so would carry them past other tough match ups beyond those games. Next three weeks are critical.

Translation: don’t see them beating the Raiders next week, the Patriots the following week and then the Bengals. Hope I’m wrong, but...

Simple as this. Come Oct. 7 at around 3pm Central, if the Dolphins own a winning record, they’ll be in the playoffs. If not, same ole, same ole.

Andrew Luck was another one that came out with the same mojo. Carson Wentz, another. Unfortunately, both have had injuries that have limited them. Wentz in particular is something else. Just pencil in the Eagles into Super Bowl LIII already.

BB, Some of us are just gifted with foresight, some are not. How early did I call support for one Donald Trump?

Woodcock, Forget about it. It’s a done deal. My eyes seldom deceive me in this category. You may be a wiz seeing as much with college players. That’s fine. What works for me is to wait to see a prospect in a pro setup. And I’m saying right here and after one game that Sam Darnold will be better than QBs like Big Ben and Flacco. Whether or not he rises to the level of Brees or Brady remains to be seen. But Tannehill!? Please.

Woodcock, There’s a l-o-n-g list of collegiate qb stars that upon entering the pros fail miserably; Tebow, Leaf, a gazzillion others. In fact, keeping it in the same school you must include Matt Leinar, a stud quarterback who filled the USC backfield with Reggie Bush and LenDale White. The point being that - NO - QB in history ever was promised stardom simply for being great in college. El chosen Rosen had similar accolades, but until he takes the reigns professionally school is literally out. Woods nargs!

I had the Dolphins at 3-0 before facing the Patriots. That easy win up in NY next week...not so sure anymore.

We all saw Detroit just stink up the place, but there was no hiding the fact that the stinking Jets are much improved. Their defense appears above average, coach Bowles seems to have it together and The young kid, Sam Darnold is going to be a star. Mark my words.

Btw, Justin Rose is the new #1. Tiger climbed to #21 up from #26.

Hey, Woodcock, Did you see how Woods has now beaten every world rated golfer at least once since his come back? He finished the rain delayed BMW Championship tied for 6th. Lots of quality names below him. I think prior to this event he hadn’t beaten Koepka, but Koepka finished tied for 19th pretty. (Troll warning) Much to the chagrin of Big Baby, Tiger is back. No wonder Sergio prefers staying home watching reruns of I Love Lucy.

Speaking of hurricanes, Tom, hope Florence swerves and misses you. That thing looks headed towards your direction. Stay safe!

Woodcock, Rush Limbaugh made a very good point this morning on his radio show and concerning the women’s US Open. Basically his observation was that the US Open is run and supported by a bunch of NY elitists who decide who their champion is and what constitutes what is proper. He then made the comparison to the last Presidential election and how the elite’s champion did not lose, but rather was cheated out of her victory. The countless machinations to “set things straight” and by those who hold up their collective noses to anyone not in their club (Walmart shoppers, as an example) is rich.

BB, The records concerning the coaches in the write up above are cumulative. Prior to yesterday’s win in that marathon of a game Adam Gase had a record of 15-16. He’s at .500 now.

Saw up to the second weather delay as we had still not gone to church. From what I saw, the Dolphins need to incorporate more than just Drake and Stills into their offense. Good showing, though.

What an ordeal! Two weather delays totaling 4 hours + the actual game. Between this one and the hook and ladder game back in the day against SD the Dolphins must own some kind of record, right?
