Dolphins have 17th toughest 2010 schedule

We don't know exactly when the Dolphins will play their 2010 home and away regular-season games, but we do know who they play and where and that is enough to figure Miami's schedule won't be an easy one in 2010 ... but it will be easier than it was in 2009.

According to NFL calculations, the Dolphins will have the 17th toughest schedule of 2010. In 2009 the Dolphins had the toughest schedule according to the won-loss records of their opponents from the season before.

The 2010 schedule offers teams with a combined won-loss record of 128-128. 

The Houston Texans will face the toughest schedule in the league according to, yes, league calculations. The Texans' opponents posted a 140-116 record in 2009. The Arizona Cardinals are at the other end of the spectrum with opponents that went 114-142 in 2009 for the easiest schedule in 2010.

Coach Tony Sparano always says his team's goal is to win the division first, and a look at the AFC East provides an interesting picture. The New England Patriots, the defending division champions, have the sixth toughest schedule at 136-120.

And here is where it gets nuts, the New York Jets and Buffalo Bills both face opponents with 128-128 records in 2009, same as the Dolphins. Yet the NFL ranked Buffalo's schedule the 16th-toughest, Miami's 17th-toughest, and New York's the 18th-toughest.

How the league makes the distinction when the teams face opponents with the same won-loss records from the previous year, I do not know.

I do know the Dolphins will play eight games against 2009 playoff teams. The Patriots will play eight games against 2009 playoff teams. The Bills will play eight games against 2009 playoff teams. The Jets will play six games against 2009 playoff teams.

The Jets advanced the furthest of any AFC East team, losing to Indianapolis in the AFC Championship game.

Earl Thomas is MY MAN .

JUSTIN, FORGIVE NJ , HE CAN'T HELP IT TO BE A RACIST .

SOMBODY SAID SOMETHING ABOUT A THOMAS DRAFT.

1st FS THOMAS
2nd WR THOMAS
3rd NT THOMAS

SOUNDS GOOD TO ME.

Yeah ALOCO....Its supposed to be an upcoming Discovery Channel episode...

The thing is...
they may find one or two OTHER bodies in that cement.

I'm pretty sure that they've concluded that Jimmy was actually sent to Japan on a scrap metal barge

So tell me...
Who do you think built the NEW Stadium?

Cheers.

MONKEY

IF THAT's WHAT HE IS GOOD FOR HIM. NO FORGIVENESS NEEDED.

I HOPE HE CAN BE REAL WITH HIM SELF TO SEE THAT. IF HE's NOT THEN MR. MONKEY THAT's NOT NICE.

CAME BACK ON TO READ WHILE I ATE.

Monkey do you really believe NJ is racist??
It is probably the fake nj in blue that posted that garbage.

CAME BACK ON TO READ WHILE I ATE.

WTF is this? Did this guy graduate?

"came back on to read while I ate" ate what?
came back on to read while I was eating.
F'kin dooofus

I'm worried as to the fact that people are reading this blog while building fire arms and I live in Texas !

Told my gf Weds morning that I was gonna stop drinking and go to meetings.
I made it 36 hours. And I didn't go to any meetings.
I'm Baaaack!

We put the sweep on the jets last yr and drew with the pats that will happen again this yr 3-1 in those games and another sweep over the yets. I see a easy road to the playoffs, Must address a few areas in the draft and FA (like JT), NT,FS,WR and OLB.

Yo Im WATERBOY and I'm indoorsall day long blogging about how Tony fistpumps. I'm the man

DONT BE MAKIN FUNS OF ME, I EATS WHAT I EATS!!

I BADASS TRUCK DRIVER, I MY BABYS DADDY, I TAKE BOTH SIDE OF STORY, I TYPE IN ALL CAPS CAUSE I STOOOOOPID, I DONT SPELLS GOOD BUTS I TRY PIECE AND LOVE

Maybe 16th through 18th is just alphabetical order for teams with same win loss percentage

Back door man, so you will be over for Easter???

I'll go to my ex's for Easter, she's making a ham and a roast beef (gf is a vegetarian).

I won't knock it out at my ex's though, gf will 'empty my pockets' before I go.

These draft guys are just now coming around to what has been siad on this and other local blogs for weeks now.

I like E. Thomas or D Williams at 12 but I can honestly see the Fins going with Iupati. Can you imagine the left side of the O-line with Long and Iupati? Both young, and the Fins need an LG. Won't be surprised at all. Any of these three would be okay with me at 12.

Look for a great pass-catching TE in the second round. Gresham (Rd 2 prob), Gronkowski (Rd 2 or 3), Graham (3), Hernandez (3 - strictly a pass catcher) are top prospects. Gresham could well be gone, Gronkowski has had back issues but is my favorite. They might be able to pick up the blazing fast Dorin Dickerson who, at 226, is better suited as a WR in a later round.

I do not expect a WR in the top three rounds. D. Thomas would be awesome for us but it isn't going to happen. The needs a NT and OLB are too big and this FO will take a TE first to open things up in this run first offense.

I can see FS still being addressed in FA, just closer to the draft. Sharper may well be the guy to bring Clemons along.

When your done could you come over and toss my salad?? Its been awhile since ive seen you

Devin, how bout I fist pump my thing on your mamas face???

I've been back drinking for less than an hour, in a good mood and haven't insulted anyone, not even the trifucta, and you have to start huh?

This is why you can't make any money either you f u c k i n g moron.

NJ is sooooo scared of Justin that he wont show up. friggin coward and liar. Workouts my azzz....good night sir

backdoor@zzwipe who says you make money you sick sob

6 figures h0m0. And I don't perspire doing it.

My seats at the stadium are clmate controlled and catered; yours?

BackDoor Dude...


Thank you for educating all of us on the preferred preparation method for
E a s t e r!


Martha Stewart can eat her heart out!
.

I dont perspire cause im a bottom, guy on top does all the work

Anyway I'm optimistic about what we'll be able to do against this easy schedule.
Mock drafts have the Jets taking a wr first, possibly Dez Bryant.
Even if they do so what?
Let's say they run a 3 receiver set against us: no problem.
Davis takes Dez Bryant straight up. Clemmons Culver doubles Braylon Edwards with Smith. Wake takes Cotchery in the slot and hands him off to Bell.
Boom here come Charlie Anderson to wax Sanchez, what can Sanchez do? Drop it off to Shonn Green in the flat? That won't work.
Thre better be a rape trauma unit on hand for the Jets when we play them.

my seats are climate controlled (i bring a warm towel) and catered, the guy comes up n down the aisle every 15 mins yelling hot dogs!! peanuts!!

Well I wonder if that little Waterboy I saw in the last Fins game is the same Waterboy that post on this site? Hey it must be because he does not have a clue what he's talking about when it comes to the Dolphins, only that when them big boys get a breather he runs out and squirt squirt.

Why do some of you people believe that they (the Dolphins) can't beat Green Bay??
.
.

well jeffe want this floors waxded so ill check back on my next 10 minite brake in 4 ourz.

No way that 3 receiver set will work against us this season.
As long as we keep Davis on the number 1 guy.
And double the 2nd guy with ClemmonsCulver and Smith, Wake takes the slot and hands it off to Bell and to top it off we have Anderson rushing the passer and Dansby covering the middle of the field and both flats against a dump of to the RB.
Sheeeeeeet.
We could even change it up sometimes and have Anderson cover the slot guy and Wake rush the passer.
With this defense I'm thinking deeeep into the playoffs!

And we'll have rookies to rotate in with Wakem Anderson and ClemmonsCulver.
And that means endurance.
And we all know how important enduance is come those last 4 games of the season.

jeffe can waxded this flurs by hisself who duz he think he is talkin to me like that when my @zzhole is soor hes not evun amerikan.

Sun Sentinel reporting Dez Bryant is meeting with the Dolphins tonight and tomorrow.

Yo Sean man it sounds like you're in a bad mood because your a s s h o l e is sore and your Hispanic-American boss wants you to work harder.
Dude you have rights.
Tell Jeffe you're sick, borrow 2 dollars from him and buy yourself a 40.
Old English or Coqui.
You have a weekly for the bus to get home, no?

If you don't have fare to get on the bus then take the d12 as far as is useful, just tell the driver that you're a friend of bobby.

the only time parcells teams were any good wad when he was a coach. giants,pats,cowboys.he can't win when he's head of operations. third year, lose and your out and take sparano with you!!!!

F u c k Dez Bryant Lupati is the pick.

Clarification: The only time Parcells won a Super Bowl was when he had Belichek on staff. Otherwise Parcells produces .500 teams in the age of parity.
Big Deal!

There is no such player "Lupati"

The LG, isn't his name Lupati?

Iupati

Carlito,
Man I'm happy you're here.
I've spent the last hour being harangued by some dude with a sore a s s h o l e named sean.
He even started posting using my handle.
What a h0m0.

I'd feel even better if Cuban were here.

I'd get that checked out

I thin sean had to go sweep a floor or something.
I think he must be a racist also.

Anyway man I'm on board now: ClemmonsCulver at FS, Wake and Anderson at OLB, rookies to back them up, an easy schedule: I'm thinking playoffs.

The beauty of it is since we got Dansby inside there is no way oppponents will try and challenge us outside.
They're going to RUN right up the middle everytime to try and clown us for making Dansby the highest paid LB in history (according to NFL.com, ESPN.com and Mando).
There is not one m o t h e r f u c k e r in the NFL as smart as Tony Sparano!

Mando maybe if teams are tied with the same difficulty they look at that teams win loss record and the less winning team has a tough schedual because they aren't as good like bufflo was the worst outta the three and then Miami and last the jets cuz they had the best record and made it to the playoffs,

Hey bobbyd12,
It looks like you go out of your way to splash people of color with your bus whenever it rains.
What's up with that?

Anyway bobbyd12 did you get a load of some guy named sean in here earlier?
He was complaining of a sore a s s h o l e and he had to go mop floors or something.
It must be hard to be uneducated in this economy, or any economy,huh?

Well at least you gat a job bobbyd12 I'll give you that.
And there are some hot females riding the D12 line in Dade county, hispanic and black mostly but still fine.
When you hear them giggling back there you don'tthink they're laughing at you do you?
And when they stand next to you and fart you don't think they do that on purpose do you?

Anyway bobbyd12 at least you have a job.
Have you ever seen the commercial, or the research, that shows that college graqduates make $1 million in thier lifetime than non-college grads?
Don't worry about it bobby; $1 million's not that much anyway.

At least you're not a cop bobbyd12.
Could you imagine spening all shift in a shop that smelled like every perp that had been in it for the past 72? You'd have to wear Vicks under your nose or something.
And all of the attorneys, prosecutor and defense, always debating what a s h i t t y cop you are both in the courtroom and at the country clubs where they play golf and drink TOGETHER without you?
F u c k them bobbyd12! They are the ones that should off themselves!
Not you.
