Even with Fitzgerald playing I think the Dolphins can get at least five wins, maybe more if the team gels from the start of the season. Miami is a young team with players who want success, eight wins might be pushing it though but it's not outside the realms of a possibility. Eleven wins... those Miami fans are dreaming.

Another thing you have to factor in is the team preparation with this Covid-19 disrupting things. I think we may see a few upsets early in the season as teams take time to find their groove.

Hi all, NFL fan from England here!

My girlfriend and I are heading to the USA in October, and I?m really hoping to get tickets to see a game while we?re visiting. I?ve planned the trip so that we?ll be in Nashville and New Orleans at weekends - so hopefully when the fixtures are announced either Titans or Saints will have a home game that matches our schedule.

My questions are:

How easy is it to get tickets once fixtures are announced?

Do Titans or Saints games sell out quickly?

How much can I expect to pay for good seats?

If I cant get tickets or our schedule doesn?t match up with the fixture dates, we would consider going to a college game. Which college team would you recommend? We?re travelling Nashville ?-> Memphis ?> Natchez ?-> Lafayette ?-> New Orleans. I thought maybe LSU, or possibly taking a detour to see Alabama (but that would be quite far out of our way).

Thanks ?

Hi, welcome to SuperCheats.
I'd love to answer all your questions except I really don't know, I'm British. The other two posters in this forum may have the answers you are after though, Warrior13 is American, he'll be online a little later today and he's a walking encyclopedia on the NFL.

What I do know is that Titans games are usually listed as sellouts, a huge percentage of the seats are locked up by season-ticket holders. But apparently tickets are still easy to get. Saints games on the other hand have been sold out for the last six years, no surprise there.

If I had a choice of seeing a college game it would be to see the Crimson Tide, good chance you will be seeing future NFL stars in that game. If not Alabama then LSU.

Dennis has got it right. It will be hard to get into a New Orleans game, but you may have some luck with Tennessee. But keep in mind that there's a chance that games will be played in front of either no fans or a limited capacity.

kaisrmaulo5: Hundreds for each ticket if you want a good seat. Most stadiums don't sell out, but the best seats go first. New Orleans is a mad house because of the locals, so probably more availability in Tennessee. The Titans also play in Tennessee, oddly enough, each game in October.

I hear Jadeveon Clowney turned down a big contract with the Cleveland Browns to play on the opposite end of the line to Miles Garrett. That surprised me, I thought at this late stage he would have been taken it. That's the Dolphins and the Browns he's turned his nose up at. The guy obviously knows where he wants to go but it looks like the team aren't interested as they haven't made an offer.

Maybe Washington should give him a call lol. That group of edge rushers would be arguably the greatest of all time. A few o-line injuries, and the other NFC East QBs would be running for their lives Smile Smile Smile

I wonder what the release time would be for the quarterback if Clowney was added to the Washington defensive line next to either Sweat or Young. The quarterback would literally have about two seconds to get rid of the ball before one of those monsters is on top of him. It would be like the 85 Bears all over again which funny enough Ron Rivera was a part of. With that type of pressure the quarterback is making a ton of mistakes... It will never happen though, it would have been fun to watch.

Thinking about it I don't think there would be a team in the league that would be able to defend against it. The only reason the Dolphins were able to beat the Bears that year was because Dan Marino has an exceptionally quick release and was able to take advantage of the Chicago secodary with the 'Marks Brothers' Duper and Clayton. The quickest release of any active quarterback in the NFL are Andy Dalton at 2.20 seconds and Tom Brady at 2.38 seconds. Dan Marino's release time has to be sub 2 seconds, that guy threw a ball like nobody I've ever seen then or since. I remember the Dolphins came to England one year and Marino threw the ball to some amateur British American footballers and it was comical, they literally struggled to catch the ball it was so viciously thrown. They each said the ball literally spun out of their hands.

Damn, that's a shame about Dalton. When he eventually replaces Dak as the Dallas starter, he will be able to cope with Washington's above average/elite D-line Evil

In no shape, way, or form is Andy Dalton anywhere near the level of Dan Marino. If Marino had of played in the 49rs team of the 80's or the Dallas team of the 90's he would have a multitude of Super Bowl rings on his fingers and be regarded as the best to ever play the game. He was just unfortunate to play for the Dolphins who never had a defense all the time he was playing. Dan Marino in terms of pure quarterbacking was the elite of the elite, I'd take Dan Marino over any of the guys in recent memory and that includes Brady, Manning, and Brees. Those guys had the benefit in playing in an NFL that protected the quarterback and allowed them to put up big numbers unlike the likes of Marino and Montana who earned their yardage the hard way. If the 1984 Dan Marino was playing today he'd be putting up over 6,000 yards and 60 touchdowns in a season (he got 5,084 yards and 48 Touchdowns in 1984. It was only because he met Joe Montana and the 15-1 49rs in the final game of the season who we)re solid everywhere that Marino doesn't have at least one Super Bowl ring, such a shame...


Dak Prescott situation still looking bleak for the Cowboys, Dallas should have moved on from Prescott the moment he started talking silly money and trying to hold the organisation to ransom. That there should have told them everything they needed to know about the guy.

Marino had no defense and no weapons. It was amazing he had the numbers he did, even more incredible he lead the Phins to a Super Bowl. Similar to how Barry Sanders had to carry the Lions for all of those years with minimal results.

Despite how well-known and well-regarded Aaron Rodgers is, I still find it amazing that he has only played in (and won) 1 Superbowl. Had they lost that, he could've been seen as another super-talented QB who somehow missed out. I remember a stat, I think it was something like Rodgers has never had a 1st round WR or RB to throw to, or if he has it was over a decade ago.

Also from memory, isn't Brees the same in terms of only 1 SB (and win) appearance? It's crazy how QBs like Newton, Foles, Goff, & Garoppolo have played in the same number of big games as HOFers like Rodgers and Brees.

I mean, Blake Bortles had JAX up 20-10 at 3QT in the AFC Championship game. He couldn't made an appearance too...

Absolutely Warrior13, Marino is a legend of the game, even now it sends goosbumbs down my spine watching that guy throw the ball on old highlight reels. As for Barry Sanders, another all-time great who had to endure playng for a bad team. Can you imagine the numbers that guy would have put up if had of played for the Cowboys and not Emmit Smith. Wrong way Sanders was the only running back I know who you had to pay attention to when he had the ball because he could take the ball to the house on any given play, he may even have to run 30 yards behind the line of scrimmage before he started making yardage. Nobody remotely like him playing today.

I bet Raiders fans are upset, their first round wide reciever Henry Ruggs III has injured his thigh while helping his friend move furniture.

This doesn't sound good...

'While Patriots QB Jarrett Stidham already beat out QB Brian Hoyer for a roster spot last preseason, former Patriots assistant Charlie Weis says that might have been as much a business decision with Hoyer?s salary than Stidham being better.'

What are the Patriots playing at, I can undestand the need to save money but the quarterback position is the most important on the team. There couldn't have been that much difference in money between Hoyer and Stidman? Makes you wonder if New England knew Brady was going they would have gone with Hoyer.

Lol, they claim they picked Stidham simply because of money? Do they realise that Hoyer is the ultimate journeyman who has never been starter material. They should be picking Stidham, because he is a raw unproven player who has probably a 25% chance of being a long-term NFL starter, compared to Hoyer's 0%.

I actually hope that New England win a decent amount of games, so that they can't tank and pick Lawrence or Fields.

Yes, I'm with you on that one Matt. I want to see the Dolphins become the power-house team of the AFC East. I'm sick of the sight of the Patriots. There's something about them I find annoying and it's not just the fact they win each year. I think it may be their uniform, I find it irritating for some reason, same with the Cowboy's.

I see Colin Kaepernick is now making noise about returning to the NFL. It will be interesting to see what happens with these riots taking place in the US and the racial issue. If teams keep denying Kapernick who in my opinion is better than several starters in the NFL including Garapollo at his former club it will add more petrol to the fire.

It was funny. 2 weeks ago NFL.com listed Kaepernick as retired, and didn't even have a picture of him in his profile. Now they're back-peddling after they told players that if they knelt, they could be fined or suspended by their owners. I remember when it first happened I posted and couldn't understand why people were making such a big deal about it. He and others were simply protesting against police brutality, not disrespecting veterans.

He's at worst, an above average backup QB. He could be a great asset as the backup in a team who is contending, like Seattle. Since he's 33, I can't see a team willing to make him their starting QB though.

No, you're right, Kaepernick wouldn't be able to start anywhere in the NFL. If Cam Newton can't find a landing spot Kaepernick has no chance. At this stage he would probably just be happy to get his foot in the door in any NFL team regardless of whether he's the backup or not.

Lol, Drew Brees is in lots of hot water. He gave an interview and explained that kneeling for the national anthem disrespects America, the flag, and veterans. He's been absolutely caned for it. At least 3 of his teammates; Michael Thomas, Alvin Kamara, & Emmanual Sanders, have not so subtly criticised him, as well as a range of other players and journalists. You've got to wonder what New Orleans do now. Brees will likely make a panic apology tomorrow, but will it be enough for his teammates to forgive him? I mean, Thomas, Kamara, & Sanders are Brees's key targets on offense. Team chemistry could fly out the window.

Is it time for lazer-eye surgery, 30/30, Jamieis Winston? ;)

EDIT - And first thing the next day in US time, Brees's panic apology has been posted...

Lol, anaylists are now saying Brees will have to retire after his comments. He apoligised but it has done him no good. Someone forgot to tell Brees things have moved on from four years ago when he made the same comments and got applauded. People are now saying Colin Kaepernick was ahead of his time and is now looked upon as a hero and not a pariah. Crazy times we live in.

Shannon Sharpe the anaylist on Undisputed says Brees will have no respect in the locker room now after his comments. Apparently there's a couple of team mates already who want to pull him to one side and talk to him about what his views. I'll be surprised if we see Brees again after this fiasco. At the moment he's probably second after the policeman who put his knee on George Floyd's neck as America's most hated person. This is a case study on how to go from hero to zero after one interview.
