Thursday Night Random Thread:What Makes The Dolphins A Superbowl Team Edition

I was reading some comments on Twitter today that got me thinking. What does this team, our Miami Dolphins need to take that leap to become a Superbowl caliber team. I understand that it takes a lot of talent combined with a ton of luck to get to the Superbowl but at the beginning of the season there are those teams that you just know have what it takes to get to the next level (playoffs) and possibly even win a title.

Even those in the know or the so called experts get it wrong to some degree here and there but there are certain traits that a Superbowl team has in each era. I think we can for the most part agree that in this era much of it centers around the QB and the level of play that you get from that position. With an elite QB you always have a shot if all the other things that can go right do go right. Even going back to the days of Marino, especially in his prime, we as fans could go in to each new season with the sense that we had a shot. A real, legit shot.

On the other side of the ball the ability to get pressure on said QB's might be close to if not equally important. Once you get to the playoffs all the QB's are good, very good if not elite. These are the type of QB's that can of course shred any defense that can not exhibit the ability to mount a consistent pass rush. This of course then leads in to the debate about offensive line play.


I for one place a high value on building a top offensive line but not a debate that I wish to cultivate here. Instead my question is which pieces if any do you believe we need to get to the next level? Is it a QB? Is it OL help? Is it another top pass rusher? How about and upgrade at Safety? All of the above or a combination? Or like some, are you pretty much happy with what we have and think it was all Tony's fault? Let us know in the poll and then tell us why below.
