I really get the feeling that we are going in the right direction with this team. Most fans think that Tua is the key, but I think the Dolphins win/lose on whether Mike McDaniel is head coach quality or just a good OC. Luckily for him, he has last year's playoff quality defense back in place all the way up to the DC.https://www.pff.com/news/nfl-three-year ... teams-2022
MIAMI DOLPHINS — Rank: 7th
Miami, much like the Raiders, took a gamble with a major spending spree this offseason that still finds them on the outside of the playoff picture looking in according to DraftKings Sportsbook odds (the Dolphins have -175 odds to miss the playoffs in 2022). However, they were extremely crafty with two moves they made in particular.
First, in acquiring wide receiver Tyreek Hill from the Chiefs to perhaps create the fastest wide receiver duo in NFL history, they retained both of their first-round picks in 2023. If they don’t love what they see from quarterback Tua Tagovailoa in his third season, they have the ammo to potentially trade up to draft another top prospect
Second, they waited out the market on left tackle Terron Armstead before agreeing to terms on a five-year, $75 million deal. Armstead has dealt with injuries in the past, including 2021, but there’s a solid argument this was the entire offseason's best value deal.
