So do people still think Miami is the worst team in the NFL?

IMO the Dolphins are better than:

Bills
Jets (controlled the game, missed a FG, now without their best defender and possibly WR)
Raiders
Browns
Jags
Saints
Chiefs

They are on the same level as:
Rams
Seahawks
Titans

The only teams that have looked incompetent on a fairly consistent basis are Tennessee and Oakland. 3 times out of 4 they have been embarrassed, with the sole wins being home shootouts over teams we thought we good but maybe aren't.

The Browns and Saints have been in just about every game they've played. Jacksonville is a possibility as they haven't done well against their tougher competition. I don't see much of a case for anyone else.

Agreed. I like the Browns and Saints over a few of the 1-3 teams just by the quality of play, and Drew Brees. Anyone who has watched the Browns this year should be able to say honestly that they've looked better for the majority of the season than Oakland, TN, and the Jets. The Saints have Drew Brees and I still expect a decent bounce back from them.

Most of these border teams like Cleveland, Jacksonville and Miami are one big injury away from crapulance.


And getting that big injury should be rather likely.

Trent Richardson for Cleveland.
MJD for Jacksonville.
Bush for Miami.


I can definitely see Miami going 4-12 though even with a healthy Bush.

I think it's New Orleans right now. That defense is putrid they make last year Vikings defense look servicable. The offense is still pretty rock solid despite losing a great play caller. But the defense is more bad then the offense is good.

Miami has a pretty decent defense and when Reggie comes back the offense will be better. I have the dolphins as about a 6 win team right now.

I can't speak for Miami & Cleveland, but the Jags are already in utter crapulance. Losing MJD would only be the crap icing on the crap cake.

So a team that is top 10 in points scored and hasn't lost a game by more than 8 points, is THE worst in the league????

No, it's the Jets. I've never seen a worse offense in my life.

And I'm loving every second of it....I enjoy watching them lose/implode almost as much as I love watching the Patriots win. Laughing


And yet they are winning the division over your precious Patriots....

In spite of that, though, the Jets are undeniably AWFUL. I just can't rank them below a team they beat a couple of weeks ago. As bad as they look, they're 2-2 with those two losses being against the Steelers and 49ers, so it's not like they've pooed the bed against bad teams. But they will, just give them some time.

Worst team in the league? Gotta be the Brownies. They look really bad, but once Haden is back and Richardson/Weeden get a bit more experience they could easily pick it up. Pretty putrid receivers though.

(I'm a Jets fan.)

After 4 weeks (three of which were road games) and two losses that came down to the final play....they're tied in loss column.

The cream always rises to the top.....and that surely isn't your "precious" Jets Laughing

If we lost Reggie Bush I dont see any reason why Lamar Miller cant replace him and put up close to the same production. Dude is a beast during what little playing time he has gotten.

I may really dislike the Browns, but they are not the worst team in the league. They will have a record that rivals the lowest teams, but that comes from their schedule playing the AFC North, NFC East and AFC West.

Jax couldn't throw it on us with our top FIVE CBs all out with injury. They have beaten who, the Colts?

Oakland looks lost.

The Jets look like a family going through a divorce.

The Browns and Colts are similar. They are getting the pieces together, just not quite there yet.

If we count the Seahawks at home and Seahawks on the road as two different teams...

I will say that I think the Browns might the worst team, but Richardson and Weeden have shown flashes of competence in between long stretches of terrible play. The dolphins still have a strong defense, and aside from rookie QB mistakes and poor special teams, the Dolphins are competitive against top teams.

Maybe the Jags are the worst, or the Raiders, maybe the Saints are, but I don't think the Dolphins are.

Reggie Bush is making a believer out of me. Guy is playing some fantastic ball, with more of a mind for the inches of the game and less of a mind for a home run hit every touch. His career is trending in the right way, he's becoming that RB that everyone was expecting early on.

That being said - man, am I very impressed with Lamar Miller. VERY impressed. Guy is a natural out there, just a great runner with some good instincts and quick, fast feet to make plays when the chances present themselves. Reminds me of another RB from The U, Clinton Portis. He can be a great find for this team, and his continued development could make Bush expendable...

How have the Browns looked terrible? They lost to the Eagles by one point and should have won that game, lost by seven points to both Cincinnati in Cincinnati and Baltimore in Baltimore and by ten points to the Bills. This was without their best defensive player in Joe Haden. The main reason the Browns lost to Cincy and Baltimore is due to giving up big plays through the air, many of which probably don't happen if Haden is playing.

How have the Browns looked worse than teams such as Oakland, Kansas City, Jacksonville and Tennessee? Yes, those teams all have won a game but KC beat the 0-4 Saints, the Jags beat the Colts and the Titans beat the 1-3 Lions. The Browns, on the other hand, have had a very tough schedule. If the Browns had an easier schedule and played bad teams, I'm very confident they would have won at least one game. Plus, Kansas City, Oakland and Tennessee have been blown out in a couple of games each while the Browns have been in every game they've played.

And now that Pagano's out with Leukemia and Arians is our HC, our chances of being a bottom 5 team shoot up as well.


This is what I was thinking. The Browns very well might end up with the worse record, but I still don't think that they are the worst team.
