The Miami Dolphins have been hard to predict in recent seasons.
It looked like they might be built for success in 2008, but three sub-.500 seasons came and went before the Dolphins had to move on to a new coaching staff.
It looked like they had turned things around at an early stage last season, with a 4-3 record keeping them in the hunt for a playoff spot headed into the midway point. It didn't take long for things to come unraveled, though. The Dolphins lost three straight in the blink of an eye.
A fourth consecutive sub-.500 season, along with a ton of cap space, led to them spending more money than any other team this offseason.
Now, the Dolphins figure to be even more unpredictable than in years past. Will the pieces come together quickly, or will it take awhile for the team to jell?
Here's my best stab at some predictions for the Dolphins' upcoming season.
