NFL: Miami Dolphins at Atlanta Falcons Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Dolphins’ pre-season will end this evening when they travel to Altanta Georgia to take on the Atlanta Falcons. As with most final games of the pre-season, many of the starters will be held out of the game with some not even dressing. This game serves as a way for those players that have not cemented a roster spot to either make their argument for giving them one of those final roster spots. It also serves as a chance for those players that may not be selected for the final roster, not because of lack of NFL level talent, but perhaps because of good depth at their particular position, to showcase what they have to offer to other NFL teams that may want to put in a waiver claim on the player following cuts.

As with all of these pre-season games the fans need to take the outcomes with a grain of salt. You want your team, especially the starting units to look sharp but the final score means nothing and many coaches are not playing to win but only to see what they need to see out of various players or maybe even as a way to try out a new play or formation while not giving too much away. I personally like to keep in mind that you can still lose all of your pre-season games and still make it to the big dance...although of the four teams to make it only one actually took home the trophy...the 1982 Washington Redskins over...yep, your Miami Dolphins. So maybe scratch that, we need to win tonight to make me feel better. What’s your take on pre-season records? You can argue with Alpha about it below in the comments section.

As with all live threads the same rules apply that would apply in every other post on the site. In addition to the normal, common sense rules that are more or less a list of how to be respectful towards fellow fans with differing opinions, there is never any sharing, requesting or posting of links to illegal game streams allowed anywhere on any SBNation site. This rule is strictly enforced and can result in a warning or temporary ban.
