The Miami Dolphins may be undergoing a rebuild as they aim to breed youth and head to the playoffs after a four year hiatus, but how their fans wish they would be back to the glory days. Established in 1966 under Joseph Robbie, the Dolphins didn’t take long to reach the ultimate goal, in fact it took only six years, the fastest to reach that goal by any expansion franchise.
However, their first few years in the American Football League (before they merged with the NFL) were a struggle as coach Geore Wilosn (who coached the team from 1966-1969) led them to a 15-39-2 win-loss-tie record, including ending the Dolphins first season with a 4-10 record.
For most of the 60s, it could be seen as seasons to forget, as they managed to win three games in 1969 and they finished bottom in the AFL Eastern division. However, despite winning three games in Wilson’s last year there were positive signs that they were at least heading in the right direction by bleeding youth into the team.
Ahead of the 1967, 1968 and 1969 seasons Wilosn introduced future Hall of Famers Bob Griese in 1967, Larry Csonka in 1968 and Larry Little in 1969, and soon enough they would be an integral part of Miami Dolphins folklore.
After an underwhelming first few seasons by coach Wilson, the Dolphins decided to act swiftly as they signed Don Shula as coach from 1970 to 1995, and it took only two years before he left his mark for the Dolphins.
The 1972 season is one to be stuck with Miami Dolphins fans for years to come. One of the reasons it is so heavily remembered for is the Dolphins endured a perfect season which included a Super Bowl win when they defeated Washington Redskins 14-7, as they ended their season with a 17-0 win loss record, with safety Jake Scott claiming the Super Bowl MVP.
There was no sign of a hangover the following year either as they went back-to-back as they claimed Super Bowl VIII over the Minnesota VIkings defeating them 24-7, with fullback Larry Csonka claiming the Super Bowl MVP.
The following year left a huge void that the Dolphins needed to fill as numerous star players left the NFL to play in the World Football League, which included Dolphins Csonka and Jim Kiick as well as Paul Warfield.
Since then the Dolphins have never really hit the highs of claiming a Super Bowl however, they did reach the NFL’s biggest game twice since their victory in 1973 as they made it to Super Bowl XVII and Super Bowl XIX, losing to Washington Redskins and San Francisco 49ers respectively.
They came close a year later but fell at the final hurdle losing the conference championship to the New England Patriots. Throughout much of the 90s and early 2000s the Dolphins were a regular attendee in the postseason as they only managed to miss the playoffs three times.
During that time they only managed to get as far as the division rounds and even some wildcard playoffs, whereas they never got close to another Super Bowl appearance. After enduring one of their worst seasons in 2007 where they managed one win, the Dolphins responded when they won 11 games to make it the playoffs in 2008, ending a seven year postseason drought, but lost to the Baltimore Ravens in the wildcard playoffs.
Much like the period between 2001 and 2007, the Dolphins had to wait further seven years to make it to their most recent playoff appearance in 2016, where once again they crashed out in the wildcard playoffs losing to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The Dolphins are currently in the midst of a rebuild headlined by quarterback Joseph Rosen who was taken at pick #10 in the 2018 NFL draft as he aims to better the Dolphins and his own development, and hopefully leading the Dolphins to a better season in 2020.
If you are a fan of the Miami Dolphins, then you know that the only thing that matters right now is how they are expected to perform in the 2020 / 2021 season. Do the Miami Dolphins have the star power to make it all the way to the Super Bowl in 2021? Have a read on below at SportsTips expert picks & preview on the Miami Dolphins:
After being hired by the Miami Dolphins in 2019, Brian Flores became one of the 10 Bill Belichick assistants to have progressed to a head coaching position in the NFL. Flores led the Dolphins to a 5-11 season in his first year in charge, finishing the year with an upset win over the 12-3 Patriots in New England, it was the first time that the Dolphins had beaten Flores’ former time away from home since 2008.
Entering Flores’ second season as the head coach in Miami, playoffs are once again an unrealistic probability, however, after acquiring Alabama’s star quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, the Dolphins talented young roster has been given loftier expectations than prior seasons, expectations that Flores needs to surpass to become a secure and successful young coach in the NFL.
Whether it’s wily veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick or new sensation Tua Tagovailoa throwing him the ball, DeVante Parker is going to do everything he can to catch it. Taken with the 15th pick in the 2015 draft, Parker had been labelled continually labelled a bust after four lacklustre seasons.
Whether it be new coach Brian Flores or simply another year of pro experience under his belt, Parker exploded for a career year in 2019, setting career highs in games played (16), games started (14), targets (128), receptions (72) yards (1202) and touchdowns (9).
If he can maintain or even exceed this level of play, the Parker and the Dolphins will be putting up some big numbers this season. The ‘first round bust’ conversation has been silenced, with DeVante Parker as the primary target for the Miami Dolphins in 2020.
After an injury riddled 2019, Bobby McCain will be coming into 2020 looking to string together more games and become a consistent threat in the Dolphins defence. After being named captain of the defensive unit, a shoulder injury side-lined McCain in the 2019 season, limiting him to 25 tackles for the year.
However, in just 9 games, McCain equalled his career high in interceptions (2). With the ability of playing multiple positions, it will be interesting to see where McCain lines up in 2020. However, if he stays healthy, McCain is poised to have a big year in Miami, both as a player and as a leader of a young and talented defensive unit.
The Miami Dolphins couldn’t capitalise on their 2018 season when they missed the playoffs by two games, instead they could only manage five wins in 2019 placing them last in the AFC East standings. Even though they finished last in the AFC East standings, they were in the NFL’s top 10 in all three against the spread categories.
They were 10th in the overall standings as they had a record of 9-7-0, at home they had a 4-4-0 record and had a 5-3-0 away record. When looking at the AFC East against the spread standings the Dolphins were second in the overall against the spread, ranked first at home (although the New York Jets had the same record) and were in second place when it came to them being on the road.
When looking at the over/under standings the Dolphins were ranked 18th in the NFL with a 9-7-0 record and first in the AFC East. They were ranked eighth in the NFL and first in their division when they were the home side having a record of 5-3-0.
They slipped out of the top 10 when they were the away side, as they had a 4-4-0 away record which meant they dropped to 14th in the NFL, however, even when they were the away side there were second in the AFC East.
The Dolphins were not really in contention to even make the playoffs as a day before their opening 2019 season they were marked at +40000 by bookmakers. However, their value dropped to +25000 on the day of their season opener on September 9.
Their opening month of action could be one to forget as they endured a four game losing streak from September 9 to September 30 which included defeats to Baltimore Ravens, New England Patriots, Dallas Cowboys and Los Angeles Chargers.
By October 1 the Dolphins were valued at +166667. Their form took another hit after the bye week when they lost three games after the break losing to Washington, Buffalo and Pittsburgh and by October 30 they were marked at +333333.
The Dolphins got their first win of the season when they defeated New York Jets on November 4, then backed it up a week later on November 11 when they defeated Indianapolis Colts which saw their odds go to +250000.
From November 18 (where they were valued at +200000) to November 25 they suffered back-to-back losses against Buffalo and Cleveland as they ended the season with a +200000 on November 27.
The remaining games saw a bag of mixed results from the Dolphins as they responded when they defeated Philadelphia, but lost their next two games against New York Jets and New York Giants but won their last two games of the season when they defeated Cincinnati and New England Patriots to end their season with a 5-11 record.
