The Miami Dolphins Misssed The Playoffs Because... Results

The "winner" of the competition is Matt Mihm. Thanks to everyone to sent in their results.

I enjoyed reading his analysis, and you will too. Here is his answer:

The safety position.

To begin with, it is questionable whether or not Miami even has a viable starter at free safety. Even if you give the benefit of the doubt and assume Chris Clemons becomes at least an adequate starter, there is precious little depth behind him and Yeremiah Bell. Tyrone Culver is a good special teamer, but is probably best suited for a role in the nickel and dime packages. Reshad Jones could develop into a starter in time, but by all accounts is very raw and would have benefited from staying for his senior year at Georgia.

God help the Dolphins if Yeremiah Bell goes down.

I do believe Will Allen will move to free safety if needed, whether due to injury or simply to put our four best DBs into the starting lineup.

With questions as to how the Dolphins will generate a pass rush, it is likely the last time of defense will be tested early and often. If the safeties aren't up to task, the big plays Miami gave up last year will keep on coming. And that is what (could) bury the Fins playoff dreams.

That's all for now. I am heading up to the lake for the day, so I probably won't be able to post anything else today.

Thanks for reading and please let me/Matt know what you think with your comments.
