I posed another Miami Dolphins predictions question to Twitter yesterday, asking what defensive end Cameron Wake's season sacks total will be in 2013. Here is a look at the responses:
@thephinsider @Kold91 how many? At least 17!— Julio Martins (@JulioFLMartins) June 30, 2013
@thephinsider @Kold91- 13 hopefully Jordan will steal a few from him this year! #GoFins— Jay Kappus (@Jay_Kappus) June 30, 2013
@thephinsider @Kold91 20.5. Oneleggedphin4life— oneleggedphin4life (@oneleggedphin72) June 30, 2013
@oneleggedphin72 @thephinsider @Kold91 I see 15+ and I also throw in 2 INT's, 1 for TD.— Eric (@SDRedibles) June 30, 2013
@thephinsider @Kold91 at least one more than the NFL single season record!— Lenny (@MainiacPhinFan) June 30, 2013
@thephinsider @kold91 30.5 LoL i can hope— SomethingAboutFB (@SmthingaboutFB) July 1, 2013
@SmthingaboutFB @thephinsider @Kold91 I'd say 20 is realistic— Zachary Gardner (@dj_zer0grav) July 1, 2013
@thephinsider @Kold91 17-18.5— Brent Koontz (@bkoontz41) July 1, 2013
@thephinsider @Kold91 at LEAST 18 sacks!— The Earl (@TheEarl007) July 1, 2013
@thephinsider @Kold91 I'm thinking around 10-12. Teams will pile people in front of him & make Vernon & Jordan beat the path to the QB.— Fin Fan in Jets Land (@Fins_Fan_in_NJ) July 1, 2013
The Phinsider prediction, given all of the above answers, averages out to 17.75 sacks, so we will call that 18 sacks. A season total of 18 sacks would have given Wake the fourth highest total in 2012 - which is actually exactly where he finished with 15 sacks. The sack leader from 2012 was J.J. Watt with 20.5.
