Miami Dolphins

Is 2018 the Make or Break Season?

Year after year there are always journalists and media personalities saying if the Miami Dolphins don’t have a successful season it is time for a complete rebuild. Every year those people are wrong but is this finally the year when it may become reality? It’s possible.

Ryan Tannehill is finally going to be back behind center after not playing a regular season snap since 2016. Tannehill is someone who constantly receives hate because of his play. Most analysts believe he cannot lead a team to a championship. But the numbers and film don’t lie, he is fully capable of doing it.

However this season if the Dolphins and Tannehill have a lackluster season Stephen Ross may finally pull the plug on Tannehill and find a new face of the franchise. Especially if they have an early pick in the 2019 draft.

Another man who could possibly see himself on the chopping block is head coach Adam Gase. Gase is entering his third season as the Miami Dolphin’s head coach. In his first season in 2016 he led the Dolphins to the playoffs. It was the first time they reached the playoffs since 2008.

In 2017 Gase made a horrible decision and brought in someone he knows and coached, former Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, to lead the Dolphins when Tannehill underwent ACL surgery. This move proved to be a bad decision for Gase and many fans were calling for him to be fired after the 2017 season in which the Dolphins finished 6-10.

This season could be a make or break one for both Tannehill and Gase. Both need to be successful to guarantee their stay with the Dolphins. The only way I believe both are safe after this season is to make it back into the playoffs, just like in 2016. This team is fully capable of doing that and even being competitive enough to go deep in the playoffs. So is a rebuild possible? Yes, but I wouldn’t bet the bank on it one bit.

Let me know what you think on Twitter.
