Miami Dolphins: From worst to first (Handle Your Business Podcast)

The Miami Dolphins are poised to take a quantum leap forward in the second year of their rebuilding plan. Hear why they can win the AFC East.

In this week’s episode of Handle Your Business, I examine Pro Football Network writer Ben Rolfe’s excellent piece on the AFC East, and I explain why the Miami Dolphins winning the division might is the best value. Could the Dolphins go from worst to first? I also take a look at the NFL’s decision not to move the draft and why the show must go on. The NFL Draft is one of the few sports events in the world that doesn’t need fans in attendance. It doesn’t even need the draftees in attendance. It is one of the great television shows in the world, and that’s all the fans need, that show.

Then there are some important signings as free agency continues despite the difficulties imposed by COVID19. Ndamukong Suh is back with the rapidly improving Tampa Bay Buccaneers to give them a major disruptor in the interior line. But the signing that might end up making the most impact is one the Dallas Cowboys made this week. Since Dan Bailey started to struggle, the Cowboys have gone through Brett Maher and Kai Forbath and watched their kickers sabotage their playoff chances. Former Los Angeles Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein may not only solve the Cowboys’ problem at that spot but swing 2 or 3 games in their favor.

Can the Miami Dolphins go from worst to first in the AFC East? If history is any guide, yes. The Dolphins were the last team not named the New England Patriots to win the division in 2008. That season they won the division with an unprecedented 10-win increase! Miami was arguably the most improved team in the second of the NFL last year. And they’ve made significant signings with the possibility of a franchise quarterback and a grand haul from this year’s draft in 3 weeks. The time to bet on the Dolphins is now before other people jump on this fantastic value.
