I see Playoffs in our future!

I admit it.  At the beginning of every single season, I am a homerfied, glass half-full, optimistically crazy Miami Dolphins fan.    I become more realistic as the season unfolds, but I always imagine the best case scenario - even late into the season.

Having admitted my disease for which no 12-step program exists, I must tell you: this year is no different in one respect - BUT completely different in another.

I expect the Dolphins to win 11-13 games this year.  I see them getting better each week and completely embarrassing a few teams along the way.   Now, keep in mind, I say this type of thing every year - ask my son or read some old articles.  HOWEVER, this year, the entire team seems to have my expectation and outlook.  Hell, even the trollers of Radio & Print Media (Orlando, Omar, Walker, et al) have seemed to notice the difference.  They are less pessimistic than in years past. 

It sincerely seems different.  I not only homer-believe,  I really believe with my discerning mind that the Miami Dolphins have turned the corner on a decade of forgettable teams.   This is the first year of many in which the Dolphins will produce playoff and championship caliber football.

We just need to stay relatively healthy and we will dominate our opponents.   We will go 5-1 in our division with TWO victories against the Patriots.   You heard that here first!

I Believe!  The Team Believes.  Soon, the National Media will KNOW!

Man, I am just like MadPhinsfan...however, this year, I am just playing it cool.
Let others, media, ESPN, Harvard, say all the good things about our Phins.
I just want to see them leave it all on the field for the full 60mins. Last year, Phins lost 2-3 games in the final minutes because of break downs, mental and coaching.
The Lions game and the Packers, Broncos game all give me nightmares still.
We cannot have that again. The NFL is so tough to win week in and week out.
The last two weeks of the season every team is scrambling for a win to get in.

If the Phins just take care of business week in and week out, there will be no scrambling when the calendar changes to December. That is what happened last two years and we know the results - "poopy in the pants"...Joe Queasy, etc.
That shxt has to stop.
Win the damn games they are supposed to win and tighten up at the end of games. The talent is here (still need Mathis for OL, however) so no excuses.

After reading about Tannehill's MUCH improved deep ball in practice (hit 4 yesterday), I am really getting optimistic.
