Peter King picks Dolphins to finish last in AFC East

The new editions of Sports Illustrated (with regional covers) will hit the stands Wednesday.

Word of advice for loyal Dolphins fans: Get out your anti-acids before you look at one.

Seems SI senior NFL writer Peter King isn't too convinced the Dolphins did anything to improve themselves this offseason. Quite the opposite, actually. King, you see, picks the Dolphins to finish fourth in the AFC East.

That means King is picking the Dolphins to finish last in the division. King has the Dolphins finishing with a 6-10 record. He's got the Bills at 7-9. He's got the Jets at 10-6 and he picks the Patriots to finish 12-4.

Last season the Dolphins finished third for the second consecutive season with a 7-9 record.

So basically, King has the Dolphins taking a step backward in 2011.

I do not have the expertise, platform nor audience of Peter King. But I do not agree with his predictions.

Give me your order of finish in the AFC East.

Sunny Skies, the team went from 1-16 to 11-5 in one season witha new offense and the same tough opponents. Yes, Pennington was the QB, but its possible.

Henne needs confidence and it appears he is getting it. I am not a huge Henne fan, but he is the QB of the greatest team ever so I have to deal with it. Similar to having to like Jennifer Lopez and Fergie. They own part of the team so I deal with it.

I think I am probably the most knowledgeable fan on this blog and most of you on here really are delusional idiots. However, I will stoop to your level and try to have a conversation with Jerry's kids.


you'd never see Revis or Asomugha blocking on a return. Am I comparing Vontae to them? yes, I am. He's the best on the roster, why would you do that?

I'd love to see Sparano answer that question the day after Davis has his ACL blown out playing STs.

The Risk/Reward is off the charts.

Hey Sign Terrible Tebow, you saw the game??? yes those sacks came from his front side and they were virtually unblocked. Old Henne forces a throw that turns into a pick. take the sack and live to throw another day. Smart plays eating the ball and not throwing it up for grabs. Got to know football to talk football. And would you have almost 200 yards dumping it down?


...and in a Preseason game no less!

My head hurts, I think I'm having a faneurism.

Pats 11-5 Win division
Fins 11-5 Wild Card
Jets 9-7
Biffalo 8-8

Sandoval

Not sure what your point was. I don't 'deal' with anything. It's a game, it's entertainment. I'd like to see them win. That doesn't change my own analysis of what I see. I'm just saying what I do see, not what I hope to see. If I am right I am right and if I am wrong I am wrong.

I see an new oline still not together 2 weeks before show time, new RB's, and a brand new offense that all need to gel together. Seems like a lot to ask to have happen so quickly when that normally takes a season or two for most teams. Thats all.


Freedog, Cincy looked like SB champs against Carolina.

-Yeah, Carolina sucks and anybody that beats them sucks too! The only way you can suck harder is to be Sunny Skies Mom. She's the Super Bowl Champ of sucking hard.

I'm just trying to be realistic.

-TRANSLATION: I'm a miserable freak because my Mommy was too busy sucking hard to show me any love or affection.

I see an online almost all new and still not together 2 weeks before the start of the season.

-I'm pointing out the most negative thing I can because that's all I got.

Remember, our competition is not installing new offenses and new olines at the last minute.

-Oh no, I'm so insecure because I always thought all those men were hurting Mommy. Can't we just forfeit and mail it in? PLEASE, sniff, sniff......

-Rainy Days-


I could see 9-7 or 10-6 as quite possible with respectable QB play. Good for 2nd to 3rd in the division. Even if they do better, I still don't think we knock the Patriots off the top.

Season Re-Cap:
Henne finishes the regular season with a 91 QB Rating, Bush has his best year as a pro, LJ provides some value in the running game, Thomas improves throughout the year.
Defense is top 3 in points allowed, and yards allowed. We are top 3 in Turnover Margin.
Get a BY week in the playoffs……. (Jets go 4-12, Rex falls over mid season and ends up in jail after a bar fight trying to remove his gay tattoo).

11-5

Defense is top 5 in points allowed, and yards allowed. We are top 10 in Turnover Margin.
2nd in AFC East as Pats go 12-4 and Jets go 8-8.

Season Re-Cap: Henne gets booed out of town, OLine falls apart, Reggie gets hurt, bottom 5 in rushing yards. Moore gets a couple wins at the end of the year.
Defense is top 10 but offense fails so bad it hurts.
Sparano is Fired, Ireland is gone. Ross has a stroke. J-Lo screws pit-bull “Dale” (has nothing to do with anything) and Marc Anthony gets caught in “Club Life” with Sarina Williams.

I think I am probably the most knowledgeable fan on this blog and most of you on here really are delusional idiots. However, I will stoop to your level and try to have a conversation with Jerry's kids.

Much i nthe ragne of 9-7, 10 - 6. With a little luck (something that the Dolphins never have) we could be 11-5.

All this being the case that Chad Henne does not mess it up, as he uses to.

Pats 11 - 5
Phins 10- 6
Jets 7 - 9
Bills 6 - 10

All standings +-1

Thanks for the enlightening feedback odinseye. If I was 7 years old again I would say somethings about your mother too, but I'm not so I won't.


Some of you are wound way too tight over something quite trivial. You don't want to debate or have a conversation. You just want to here we will be 11-5 and nothing more.

OK who was passing around the pipe!!

Sunny Skies - no point... bored at work. Like you I want to see the team win because I enjoy wearing the jersey as a badge of honor than a scarlett letter of shame... haha

Ok, fine, have it your way.

We will be 12-4. Seriously.

I just don't know which season yet.

There are women in arab countries that get beat for wearing jeans. Some of you are that extreme over something so trite as a different view.

Who wants a mustashe ride?

See, Sandoval knows how to take things in stride. he didn't even resort to calling me a jet fan!

And furthermore, I totally expected this from the morons on this blog. You guys are the biggest bunch of losers and idiots I have ever seen.

As they say, people gravitate to those most like themselves. Welcome to the blog.

Pats 11-5
Dolphins 10-6
Bills 9-7
Jets 7-9

I am so tired of people talking about my mommy. My mom breast fed me until I was 10 and I turned out just fine. I might have half a brain and drool from the left side of my mouth but I know football. Duuuhhh....where's my mommy?!!!

Another name faking post. Your really are so sad. Try getting a life.

3-13. it's probably markeyh from the ss doing all of the fakes. what a freak'n homer he/she is.lol

Armando, no need for anti-acids, you guys (media) have been Debbie Downer'ing the Dolphins so much we die-hards are immune to the negativity.

- GO DOLPHINS!

Oregon... one of your blog comrades @2:51 proving your point.

Nothing clever. Just drivel.

I wish you people would get a life!! I mean, look at me. My life is great. I sit at home on my computer all day writing on blogs and jerking it to the pics of Dan Marino. Get a life like mine and you too can be a blog expert.

Its funny, ironic... people get hostile if you have a different view, then call you an idiot, and then start copying your name and responding like a retarded 8 year old.

Whats wrong with that picture?

NE 11-5
NJ 11-5
MIA 7-9
BUF 6-8

By January 15 Ireland and Sparano are on the street and we can start speaking football

Its hard to debate with many of you since I stopped calling people names and making fun of their mothers back in elementary school. I guess that makes me an outcast too.

Nope Sunny Boy!

All you have to do is read your posts, the evidence is there Dude. Regardless of what you TRY to say.

We have the same views basically. The difference is, I'm stating my views as opposed to just trying to incite and provoke others.

I also don't talk to myself with various aliases like you have for the past hour or so. Who do you think you're fooling? Unless you answered Nobody, your wrong AGAIN, as usual.

As far as commenting on your Mom, I have no problem stooping to your level.


"Freedog, Cincy looked like SB champs against Carolina."

How is this trying to have a debate about the PHINS Einstein? Cincy and Carolina are both trying to put their best foot forward. There trying all types of different schemes and players. Not to mention there all Pre Season games.

If you're "just trying to debate" the PHINS, how is this even relevent?

It's really not and everyone can see you're just trying to provoke for whatever reasons.

That's all the SLUMMIN I'm going to do for today, give it a rest and quit being such a bald faced liar.

With that, I'll bid you a Good Day Sir!!!!

My son is mentally challeged Sunny!


See, Sandoval knows how to take things in stride. he didn't even resort to calling me a jet fan!

Good to see you get along with yourself so well.

You two play nice together Schitzo!

Fake odinseye @ 3:01 but he does have a point and FUNNY.............................

This is beyond comprehension really. Here is a guy whose first response to me is to say derogatory things about my mother (is this really an adult?), and then he says I am the one inciting and provoking others. I've been perfectly respectful, just with a view some of you don't like.

I'd have to be crazy to continue debating anyone this warped.

Another name faking loser post. You are not cute and are truly a sad person. Enjoy it while it lasts because you have been reported.

Someone is going to the Principal's Office!

I love this site! By the way....I GOT MADDEN BABY!

Isn't that the same guy who picked the fins to win it all the year we went 4-12?
Sports illustrated is a joke, the pics are great but the content and the writers are crap, I'm talking to you wolff.

how long did it take the bruins to win the cup, let me help you the last time the b's won the cup the dolphins won the superbowl. this team is much better than anyone has mentioned. we will see on 9/12 when bradys uni is soiled and the pats start 0-1. keep laughing pat fans and by the way you went 18-1 not undefeated when the giants kicked your ass in the superbowl.

Sunny Boy,

Oh yeah! Oh Yeah! Meet me on the next blog and I'll knock you block off!

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!

To those who have not been too pleased with my posts. I'd advise you not to read Armandos latest post.


BIG Peter King fan but he sucks as a prognosticator. If he was on here he would even say the same thing. I don't even want to rhyme off all the predictions he's got wrong but there have been many.

Pats 11-5
Dolphins 10-6
Jets 8-8
Bills 7-9

I just don't see it with the Jets this year. They have some good pieces on defence and some good pieces on offence with Holmes, Greene and Keller. But that's it. They're missing some key pieces this year, the team is another year old and to be honest I think Rex's act is wearing thin. We'll see.

Ok, I'm out. That is all the stupidity that I can stand for the day.

Anything you see from my handle the rest of today is not me!

Enjoy impersonating others while you can. I suspect you will be exposed and banned very soon.

Have a good day to all the real people in here!

sunny skies, shut up

People still read magazines????
And fat Peter King
Pats- 13-3
Dolphins 9-7
Jets 9-7
Bills 4- 12

Wow... this blog is getting a little rough today.

As a Dolphin backer since 1968 - hell I even know the song.... I am amazed with the lack of improvement made over the summer.. I am sorry to say, but I make it 5-11.. Losses against NY Jets (2),,Losses against NE(2) split with the Bills(1)..losses against improved teams - Houston..Denver...San Diego..Oakland..plus Dallas.&.Philly The off season gained nothing - we swapped running backs - but we lost a Wildcat option.. ( not that it was any good in 2010) We picked Mike Pouncy 1st and he never grasped the center position at UofF with errant snaps through the 1st half of the season - and after 3 preseason games he was less than impressive on the line. Receivers are a good group however the OL cannot provide protection for Henne in the pocket. The running game looked anemic against the 2nd and 3rd string players for Tampa Bay. Our new running back has shown no flashes of a high draft pick. The defense let horrific plays go by after the 1st half.. well its the second team I said.. but its the 3rd team offense on Tampa Bay - and they moved freely. Finally Chad Henne - sorry but 185 total yards with 95 coming on 2 Marshall passes is just not enough. The big stat to me was how many 3 and out series were engineered after the long Marshall pass. All of them!! So sorry ..I am a realist and will watch and moan through the season hoping finally that the light goes off in Mr Ross's head and realizes his Coach is not Head Coach material. Offensive co..lost more games last year than the Dolphins did..and his schemes except the Marshall pass are nothing new..and the Gen Mgr is lost in his position - another horrible draft. No blinders on - no false promises . .just 43 years of being a Dolphin fan.. Hoping for the best but no longer expecting it.

Miami 13-3, NE 10-6, Buff 9-7, NYJ 5-11. Doesn't that look nice to see 13 wins next to us? Don't underestimate buffalo, jets made some poor personel moves and will pay, NE is NE.

I like some of what you said Robert but the facts are that we have owned the Jets wining the last 4 out of 5 so I don't see a season sweep there. New England has aged and th eOL has lost a step with Brady. Pouncey had most of his errant snaps from the Shotgun not handing under cneter. The defense will come around because they played terrible last pre-season but were a top 5 D at the end of the year. Davis and Smith have and will continue to improve. and I have to say this 95 yards on two passes to Marshall is enough. he draws double coverage with enough of those catches and leave Bess and Bush in single coverage against a linebacker. With the addition of Bush teams may be forced to use a saftey to cover him like he drew in New O until hurt with will leave single coverage across the board.

We signed the wrong Cowboy! What the Dolphins should do is cut Marc "The Turnstile" Colombo and sign Andre Gurode. Move him Gurode to RG and move Vernon Carey back out to RT. So on opening night against the Patriots our O-line would look like this.

LT. Jake Long, LG. Richie Incognito, C. Mike Pouncey, RG. Andrea Gurode, RT. Vernon Carey.

Did you actually SAY anything other than to keep repeating the summation of the article? YES, we realize that finishing forth means finishing last, means finishing behind the other three teams in our division. Too bad the Herald killed their forum, now you have to TRY writing your own stuff...

Guys,

Can we please get off the Donald Thomas is a BUST bus please!! Can we let the guy run through a hole that is open first.

all you idiot Dolphins fans need to listen to the writer of the Chad Henne story about how he CAN'T MAKE DESCIONS LET ALONE ANY AT ALL! WE WILL FINISH LAST THIS YEAR BARRING THE RETIREMENT OF THE REAL CHAD! THATS CHAD PENNINGTON NOW he was a winner in just 1 season and we suck at picking up & drafting players because i think it was during sabons 1 year he DID PASS UP ON DREW BREES! OH HOW PITTFUL THAT WAS!

I said the same thing John, even the experts say Gurode is still pro bowl caliber. from the NFL network last night. I would even consider him at cneter so Pouncey has time to grow. Even with Carey slowing a very little bit he is twice as good as the Columbo who let two player just blow him up for sacks against Tampa!

My point exactly! It wasn't that Ronnie and Ricky Williams are not good RB's it is that our O-line sucks. Ronnie Brown has looked pretty good in Philadelphia, running behind a superior Offensive Line than he ever ran behind here.

4 n 12 this year if we are lucky to pull off a few close ones if we get a new QB! ASAP!

Go back to sleep Frankie if we suck as bad as you say from last year 7-9 we will improve!

Armando, I'm in Mexico City and although the moves in the offseason weren't the kind of big fishes the I expected, I can see the Dolphins with a 10-6 record, enough to reach the second round of the playoffs.

Miami 11-5
New England 11-5
New York Jets 10-6
Buffalo 8-8

Henne will have over 4000 yards passing and a better defense.
