Last year at this time we were just happy the Dolphins showed some life during a season they were supposed to be “tanking”. Now here we are hoping the Dolphins can win out and make it into the postseason for the first time since 2016. Chris Grier and Brian Flores acquired the players they wanted during the offseason to help build a team culture. If they make the playoffs that would be great, but just the growth they have shown this season and the resources they will have during the offseason should have fans excited for the future of this team regardless if they make the postseason or not.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
