Bolds are away games.
Usually, the rumors start trickling in by now, so if you hear any news about the Dolphins’ schedule, please feel free to share.
It looked originally like the first 4 games will be our NFC games: Rams, Niners, Seahawks, and Cards. The league set it up that way so that if early games need to be canceled for Coronavirus, then at least only the lesser, unimportant games will be cancelled. However, that is clearly just a rumor, as there are numerous reports to say it isn’t true. Just like the draft, it’s a bunch of reporters and amateur bloggers trying to break important news simply by making it up out of thin air and hoping they are right.
Those 4 NFC teams all sound decent on paper right now, but they may not be as fierce as people think. The Rams never recovered from their Super Bowl loss, and they’re a so-so team right now. The 49ers have Kyle Shanahan at the helm, and all he does is lose big games. The Cards are a long way off; the Seahawks are still formidable, but still are a one-man offense with Russel Wilson.
Our London game has been scratched, but they’re not automatically letting us play that game at home. It may be a neutral site in a non-Florida state.
Other than that, I’ll be very interested to see how the parity and fairness plays out. With New England out of the picture, I expect old favorites like Dallas and Pittsburgh to get all the perks. And I expect Stephen Ross to remain clueless about how badly the Phins get screwed each year by the schedule makers. Until the NFL recognizes Miami as a legitimate team, it will continue.
