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.

Someone get a nurse to give FRANKIE his medicine so he will go back to sleep!

My budy is a true Cowboys fan, and he informed me that Andrea Gurode is on the slow side. He only snapped the ball last year, he didn't make the line calls. Kyle Kosier makes the OL calls for the Cowboys.

I think the Fins like Pouncey at C for his athleticism and his ability to pull. So keeping him at C is good. But I also have been impressed with Lydon Murtha filling in for Long at LT. I can see placing him at RT and cutting Vernon Carey if we sign Gurode.

Keith, it's even worse than that. King (and SI) are the ones who claimed we'd win it all the year we went 1-15!

Crazy how they could be so wrong. Shows just how knowledgeable they are about Miami, the AFC East, and football in general.

John "The Dolfan",

'A superior line (Philly) than he ever ran behind here'.

I guess you didn't see the article on PFT yesterday where it talked about the concern the Eagles have about their offensive line. Completely re-shuffled, where only one guy is playing where he played last year. They've tried four different guys at RT and replaced their regular centre with a new guy. Good team but if it looks like it's going to have an achilles it is likely to be it's OL.

WAIT....HOW CAN WE BE LAST WHEN WE HAD THE #6 RATED DEFENSE IN THE NFL LAST YEAR AND WE UPGRADED R LB ers who cares what that fat fck thinks he ant miss.CLEO

I didn't read that one, but after watching no holes being opened for the run game and Henne running for his life again, I got that same sinking feeling as last year. Our O-line still sucks.

Patriots------------14-2
Jets---------------- 9-7
Dolphins------------ 5-11
Bills--------------- 5-11

Henne will be improved and Defense will be very good. But not re-signing either Ronnie or Ricky will come back and bite them in the ass.
Also the OL will be a headache all season long, pray that Fasano does not get injured and Bush stays healthy.

We need to get rid of Ireland and sign Kenny "MF CEO" Powers as GM...lmao!

Peter King is also the guy who had us ranked SIXTH at one point last season after we started the season 2-0. He was always in Chad Henne's corner UNTIL after last season. He flip flops constantly. He's always last or close to last in his rotisserie baseball leagues. He's a GREAT writer and I've been reading him every Monday morning for more years than I care to remember. He's just a horrible prognosticator. HORRIBLE....like maybe the worst.

So to be honest, I'm GLAD he is picking us to be dead last. To me Peter King's predictions are about as good as Bill 'there'll be no football until 2012' Connors predictions. It means we have a chance to have a decent season.


Pats 12-4
Jets 11-5
Phins 8-8
Bills 6-10

Gotta keep it real!

The Jets have been to the AFC championship game the last two years. At the end of last year it was obvious teams like, Cleveland, Detroit and Buffalo were improving, , were the Dolphins improving, no they wanted a new head coach, how have the Dolphins improved over their loss to Buffalo, at home, last year? They deserve to be picked last, no reason other than a hopeless optimist, to think otherwise.

A couple of other beauties from Peter King:

Last year he predicted the Bucs would be one of the worst team in the league. I forget what he said their record would be but I think he said 3-13.

He also thought the Saints would be bad the year they won the Super Bowl.

He also touted Shane Matthews as a future star under Steve Spurrier in Washington. On and on it goes with his predictions...most of them not good.

I'm from NE and P. King is the biggest Patriot butt boy in the football world and you know why?He's on their WEEI talk show each Friday telling Pats fans what they want to hear!

Peter King is a flamming retard who should just retire and play bingo all day.
I put as much value in a PK prediction as a 5 yr old who eats buggers.

Pats - 10-6(win in tiebreaker)
Fins - 10-6
Jets - 9-7
Bills - 8-8

Oops...spelled BOOGERS!

Hey Mando, what a classless turd you are to post pics of a QB missing a read and then declring that QB as no good for that reason. It's always the feminine writers such as yourself that feel they know the most yet have never played a down in their life. LISTEN, based on YOUR articles (maybe I should provide a pic of an article and some red ink to illustrate how awful you are) you would be 4th string on a ladies flag team in Canada. I REALLY hope some player snaps one day and ends your "career".

Been a dolphins fan since the 80's. I bleed Aquarius and orange here is the real standings:

Pats 12-4
Jets 10-6
Phins 8-8
Bills 6-10
Bad O-Line=no running game. No running game=another bad season for Henne

we're dead last in fan attendance. thats for sure!

IF, anything, Sparano should post this on every players locker, every door and every hallway. I do like Sparano, but I've been discouraged by his saying stuff that doesn't happen and giving the lip service du jour! Henne is key-let's not even think for a moment that he isn't the keys to the car! The Patsies will win division, Jets 2nd place, and bet. Bills and Dolphins, it will be a toss up. I'm not enamoured by the so-called improvements this F.O. made-this owner is an idiot and until he's gone-which is scary to think how long he'll be around, we are mediocre for the long run. And I've been a fan for too too many years and have been through it all and these is the worst years we've had from Wanny on. Can we just forfeit Thanksgiving Day now-hate to ruin the dinner.

Patsies 13-3
Jests 11-5
Phins 8-8
Jills 7-9

Bring on the new regime!

Pats 13-3
Phins 10-6
Jets 10-6
Bills 4-12

I predicted this before the preseason started.

Also, going to maybe 3 games this year, so doing my part.

Phin Up!

Queen Peter... an Oxymoron? Ever read his weekly column? Makes a living writing about coffee. Some people read tea leaves, Queen Peter reads coffee grinds. Scientifically proven to be 20% more accurate. Ask any moron.

Pats11-5
Wets 8-8
Phins8-8
Billies6-10

No wildcard in AFC East...I think the O-line credability brings to much uneasiness to this team and the running game is going to be a MAJOR step backwards this year...Defense will keep us in most games but I dont think they added enough in terms of impact players to make a run this year....Good news is the wets will be right next to us come playoff time(AT HOME)

Faneurism... good one Pragmatic!

Peter King picked the Dolphins to win the Superbowl Nick Saban's first year with the team

10-6 , we make the playoffs, finish 2nd behind the Pats, if the O puts it togethr we finish 11-5 ahead of the Pats.

pats 13-3
fins 10-6
jets 9-7
bills 4-12

King also picked miami vs carolina to be in the SB a few years ago and neither team made the playoffs Guys a joke.

Who is Peter King? How many Super Bowls has he won? How long did he play in the NFL? Does he have a yellow jacket?

If we get lucky such as a lucky flag thrown we are looking at 5 -11.

All you people are getting amped up just like you did the past 2 seasons.

WE SUCK! Henne SUCKS. Soprano SUCKS. Ireland SUCKS, Owner Ross SUCKS, the OC SUCKS. Nothing has changed except the year and that the Owner Ross rewarded the looser Coach and looser GM Ireland aka the acorn sniffer for losing back to back seasons. They now have another season to once again, lose. They will once again be allowed to return in 2012 - 13 season to Lose again.

The ONLY way we are ever going to have a chance at winning is to purge ALL the crap that the Tuna brought in for coaches, assts and the Cowboy connection rejects.

COWHER is a proven HC and he had the backing of the Rooney family who understands how to WIN. The Steelers are STILL reaping the Bennie's from what Cowher built.

Some of you don't like Cowher and I ask does it matter if you "like him" or do you want a winning coach and the know how to make it happen.

Look for a Dolphin SB appearance in 2016 but ONLY if they bring in Cowher.

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

I am trying to be as realistic as possible.
I believe that predicting should not be done in a vein of optimism or pessimism. It just is simply prognosticating. It has nothing to do with Team Spirit or Rah Rah.

If the Fins manage to go to the playoffs I will be blown away with surprise. I'll eat my crow or ostrich with cold tabbasco and a shock.

Until then I will trust the braniacs that set the Vegas odds lines with the season wins over/under being about 6 depending on where you go.

Cheers,

My biggest concern, by far, was Henne. At this point Henne is actually looking vastly improved. I will go a little further out on a limb here.

Dolphins 11-5 Playoff
Patriots 11-5 Wild Card
JEST 7-9
Bills 4-12

F-Peter King and his NY, Boston biased and F this blog for re-writting other peoples work instead of creating your own to write about.

There's no middle-ground to where the Dolphins will finish. It's all or nothing. They go 12-4 and win the Division, or they go 3-13 and get the number one pick (Andrew Luck) in the 2012 NFL Draft, and a new Head Coach and General Manager. For this year only I'm hoping for 3-13 or worse because sometimes in order for a team to progress it may need to endure a catastrophic season to finally get the ownership to make the proper moves including selling the team. That's what happened in 2007. So if the Dolphins suffer a terrible season but end up with a franchise QB, new coach and GM, and if we keep our fingers crossed a new owner I would call the season a win-win in the long run.

jets will sweep all afc east teams with their defense..pats are on a decline and will finish 3rd..circle this post and hire me then!

i´d like to see all of you henne lovers to pick him in your fantasy teams... ja!

To be honest, nobody gives the Dolphins any love (EVER)... I think they are all NUTS...

Are they superbowl contenders, I have my doubts but they have improved, and based on the past- most anyone would say NO, but it's a new year and I believe the team is better over all.

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

Playoffs, here we come!

I think every one is forgeting the defense has good rotation and was ranked 4 till the last game of the season now with Nolans system in place for the second year plus an upgrade at center we still have the same o-line as last year so with that addition of Pouncy, plus Bush also Marshalls 2nd year in I think we could easly flip 7-9 to 9-7 also don't see why we can't steal 1 or 2 so 10-6 or 11-5 is possible I don't see them doing worse than 9-7 unless we have major injuries, also Henne threw for 3,300 under a restricted OC so with more freedom and trust from the new OC Henne is just as good as Sanchez in my mind, and everyone seems to be all over his stuN......

Spurts Illistrated must not want to sell any of their magaizes in South Florida. If they did the would not be so qiuck to put the teams of South Florida down. They have been trying to get Miami the death penalty since 1996. Everyone cancel your subscription and don't have anything to do with this sorry rag.

I don't like King but he might be right. I'll be happy if they beat the Jets twice and the Cowboys on Thanksgiving.

oh my god peter king !!what an idiot. Really who cares what he thinks!!!

We have a powerful defense. As long as the offense improves we will be fine.

DOLPHINS 16-0
BILLS 4-12
JETS 0-14-2
PATRIOTS 0-14-2

JETS 13-3
PATS 13-3
DOLPHINS 3-13 ALL THREE WINS ON THE ROAD.

Pats 12-4
Jets 11-5
Fins 8-8
Bills 7-9

Peter King is a NFC homer. Look back at his predictions, he has never been a Phins supporter.

I'm a big Phins fan...but realistically ByteMe has pretty close to right with the prediction. Not sure the Jets will be as good, Bills will much better, but until Brady retires...Pats are pretty damn good.

Phins go 8-8 sorry Sparano but this is the end of the road.

We will probably end up in 3rd place again this year...IMO. I mean Ross promised fireworks but only delivered cheap drugstore sparklers...

Wow some of you...do you really think we will go 10-6 or 11-5?? Realistically you are way off...please explain just how you came up with that...unless you are joking of course.
Tony and hopefully Jeff too are gone after this year, sorry to say, I'm just being real here. Do I want my fins to fail NO...but get real please some of you..

NE 12-4
Dolphins 10-6
Jets 8-8
Bills 6-10

After three years of waiting fir Henne to the corner, TS couldn't get this OL straight!!!
First poor drafting poor free agent signings that didn't pan out!!! He lie about be a guru OL coach....we won't make the playoffs because of JI TS not knowing how to evaluate players...so yes this is the end of the road for those guys!!!! Can't wait for Bill Cowher to take it over!!

I was on a flight back from Miami about 15 years ago when Marino was still playing and Huizenga had gone out and spent a lot of money on FAs doing everything he could to get Danny a shot at a ring. This is back when the Dolphins were a perennial contender and a playoff spot was part of the franchise's manifest destiny every year. I asked PK if he thought Miami had a shot that year and he quickly dismissed their chances. He hates Miami, always has, always will. But to be fair if he didn't think Miami could win some playoff games with Marino under center it's hard to argue with him suggesting they can't do it with Bad Henne either.
