    Did it really matter where Denver started ANY DRIVE in this game? I think they punted ONCE! So they scored on a bunch of 70 yrd drives and one from 60 yrds instead of 80 yrds(they scored on those too)..Sturgis WAYYYYYY low on the list of reasons we lost today

    I don't agree, in this case, that their record is what they are. I see a better than mediocre team. I see a team that's ready to take that next step up next season. Mediocre was last year. This team is solidly good. Next year, possibly great if they keep the same trajectory.

    At this point last season we were 5-6. This year we're 6-5, yeah we really improved.

    Being a Dolphins fan is a mix between being in a living Hootie and the Blowfish lyric and Rust Cohle's perpetual flat circle reference. Just crying over and over again.

    Gotta remember we will not face Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos every week... if our offense plays the rest of the season like it played today and our defense gets healthy, I still see us going 4-1 the rest of the way and getting to 10-6.

    The Dolphins are 6-5 at this time. That is a mediocre record as far as I am concerned. Right now they are in the middle of the pack in the AFC and that is another sign that at this time they are mediocre.

    I have always believed that, "you are what your record says you are". Right now their record says they are a mediocre team in relationship to the other teams in the AFC. Perhaps that will change over the next five weeks, but right now, it is what it is.

    I agree. If the Dolphins offense can put up 36 points in each game the next five weeks, they should finish the season no worse than 4-1 in those games.

    My prediction though remains 9-7.

    They are mediocre right now. Its a tough year. The only teams they have a better record than right now in the AFC that are still techincally alive are the Titans, Texans, Jets and Bills. Miami sits in 10th place. They have time to change that over the next few weeks and pass others like the Ravens, Chargers and Browns by. We'll see...recent history hasn't been kind in that respect.

    Yes it mattered. Did you even watch the game or read my post? Denver faced a 4th & 2 on that drive, genius. That means the defense forced a punting situation, however, the additional 20 yards of field position provided by Sturgis's pathetically short kickoff allowed that 4th & 2 to occur on Miami's 41 [where they went for it] instead of Denver's 39 where they would've punted. Hence, the score would've remained 28-17. That means Denver's next TD with 5 minutes to play would've made the score 28-25 instead of given Denver a 32-28 lead, thus there would've been no need for Tannehill to force a throw on 1st down into tight coverage that gets INT'd with 3:45 to play and Miami ahead by 3 pts. Miami could've still lost, but they also could've driven the field and eaten up the clock for the win.

    It was obvious in the second half that the Broncos could score against the Dolphins defense anytime they wanted to. The Dolphins defense just didn't seem capable of stopping the Broncos offense after the first quarter.

    While I agree the play by Taylor had some effect on the game, it certainly wasn't the reason the rest of the defensive players sucked for the remainder of the game. Great defenses overcome one bad play, but as we learned today and in the late losses to the Packers and Lions, this defense is far from being a great defense.

    The game was lost in the first half and early in the second half when Coyle and his staff failed to adjust to the double tight end set. That really wore down our front seven. It was a very good strategy when you consider the effect of the altitude on a tired front 7.

    Do most teams travel the day before? Seems like a few days early to acclimate could have made a difference.

    It hurts. The defense was crap a lot of the time. And our playoff hopes aren't looking good. But we're a good team. We're not 19 points worse than Buffalo or 37 points better than San Diego. But we aren't far off of the 3 points worse than Denver on the road that we showed today. And that's a good team that no one would be surprised to see end up in the SB.

    I agree, 3-2 is what I see. Losses at NY and at NE and wins at home.

    We still miss the playoffs and sit as an NFL mediocre. Stuck not being bad enough to get impact players, and stuck not being a playoff team.

    You we're making a lot of sense and then...."a good team no one would be surprised to see end up in the SB"

    Really ?!? What part of "not beating an elite team" don't you get ? (New England was not elite - missing Gronk - when we played them.

    In terms of feeling, the worst of it was during the game when the Dolphins were clearly starting to lose grip in the 2nd half. (The really heartbreaking stuff with a lingering effect, at least for me, is when the opposition comes back to win in the last minutes or something similar).

    Some of the not so good moments still deserve a face palm, but right now, I'm not bothered by the loss at all. It was a close game. How many of us at the before the season started had this game notched in the loss column, and not just that, but a blowout by the Broncos?

    The injuries and lack of depth at certain positions are mostly what's bothersome going forward now. You can just hope "next man up" is a mantra this team lives up to, or at least, "C'mon on back healthy, Mr. Finnegan and Mr. James...."

    I agree. 10-6 is the number. 10 wins is necessary to not blow this team up.

    Genius? wow. You must be right. How could our ST's be held accountable when our kicker sometimes make our coverage teams..I don't know...Cover kicks? lol. Denver wins that game in every scenario because we could not stop them at all. Let alone stop a 4th and 2 when the RB did not see a Phin defender until 7yards. Would I like all kickoffs out of the endzone...of course. To make that KO a big reason while we lost is silly. Better team won yesterday...we fought hard..THATS IT. I did watch the game and read your post. I did not need to be a genius to understand your point. I really thought it was meaningless.
