Miami Dolphins Tickets 2019 Season Outlook
QB Ryan Tannehill and Head Coach Adam Gase are out and a new era begins in 2019 for the Dolphins. After rumors that they might wait until the loaded 2020 draft class to find Tannehill’s successor, Miami traded their second-round pick and next year’s fifth-rounder to the Arizona Cardinals for 2018 #10 overall pick, QB Josh Rosen. He’ll battle newcomer Ryan Fitzpatrick for the starting job and will certainly get a look as the starter this season.
The QB additions might help the Dolphins sell tickets, but expectations shouldn’t be too high for new Head Coach Brian Flores. Although he could become the second former New England Patriots Defensive Coordinator (Lions’ Matt Patricia) in two years to beat Bill Belichick in their first year as head coaches. Flores will get two chances against his former employer and now division foe.
History of Miami Dolphins
As you walk through the streets of South Beach, you will undoubtedly see NFL jerseys emblazoned with the Dolphins logo as fans show their pride in their team. From Don Shula to Dan Marino, the team has rich history that this year's roster will look to build on. That history began in 1966 when the Miami Dolphins joined the American Football League (AFL) as an expansion team. Like many expansion teams do, the Dolphins did not see much success in their first few years on the field. In 1970, as the AFL and NFL officially merged into one league, the Dolphins hired legendary head coach Don Shula to lead the fledgling team. His hiring immediately paid off. The team went to the Super Bowl three consecutive years from 1971 to 1973, winning two of them. Following those championship years, the team fell back to mediocrity, making the postseason just four times in eight seasons without winning a single playoff game in that span. After making it back to the Super Bowl in 1982, the team used their first round selection to take quarterback Dan Marino. After stumbling out the gate in 1983, Marino took over as the starting quarterback, a position he would keep for nearly the next two decades. Marino's best season came in 1984, when he threw a then-record 48 touchdown passes and a then-record 5,078 yards. He led to Dolphins once again to the Super Bowl where they sadly lost to the San Francisco 49ers. This was the last time the franchise made it to the NFL's biggest stage.
