Phinsider Mailbag: Dolphins 2000 roster vs 2013 roster

New, comments

The Phinsider Mailbag returns today with a question about the Miami Dolphins' roster from their last playoff win in 2000. A reader wants a look at the 2000 Dolphins roster compared to the 2013 team.

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

The Phinsider Mailbag opens today, with a question about the Miami Dolphins in the playoffs. Our question today comes from LeftWing13. Via email, he writes:

"The last time our Dolphins won a Playoff Game was in the 2000 NFL Season. How do you compare our current roster to that of 2000?"

Interesting question. Let's take a look. Below, I've listed the primary starters at each position from 2000 and the projected starter for the Dolphins in 2013. But, rather than give you a comparison of the two, I want to see what you all think. So, vote in the polls for each position, picking the better situation - the 2000 playoff winners or the 2013 team full of potential.
