The Miami Dolphins are officially at the midway point in the 2012 season. The Miami Dolphins currently sit at 4-4 an alone in second place in the AFC East, as well as one game back of the two AFC wild card spots. The Miami Dolphins season has been a bit of a roller coaster as they started 1-3, then improved to 4-3 after a 3 game winning streak, only to fall back to .500 on Sunday, losing to the Colts. So what do we know about the Dolphins that we didn’t at the beginning of the season?
Well, I think we could all agree that Ryan Tannehill has all the tools to be the franchise QB the Dolphins have been looking for. Second, I think Joe Philbin is turning out to be a pretty good head coach, as the Dolphins players seem to be buying into his philosophies. Third, I think the Dolphins realize they are a work in progress and that additional retooling will be necessary if the team wants to be a consistent contender in the AFC.
I think the overall feeling around Dolphins fans is that the team is heading in the right direction. I mean, the team was 1-7 last year at this point, now they are 4-4. I realize there is a large contingent of Dolphins fans that are still calling for a new general manager, but we will need to see how the rest of the season plays out before Mr. Ross will need to make that decision.
So, since today is Election Day, we thought we’d allow you to do some voting right here at PhinNation.com. We want to know what you think about the current state of the Dolphins, their coaches, and even who you are voting for today in the ‘big’ election. Don’t worry, these polls are completely anonymous, we can’t tell who’s voting for what person or grade. We will be collecting your votes until tonight at 10pm, then we will count them up and publish the results tomorrow morning. We will give you the reader’s average grade and our thoughts on what the Dolphins grade should be. This should be fun, we’re eager to know what Dolphins fans think about the different units/players/coaches on the team! (click on page 2 below to vote!)
