I know they’ve faced 3 really good teams, but the Dolphins really are in a league of their own. My god.
Love that the Dolphins logo here is a dolphin with a helmet on, like it needs to protect itself... from itself...
Good luck catching us, bitches.
Expand More Comments
Definitely not hanging on for dear life.
Y’all got any of those Miami games?
Here’s an idea: the dolphins logo gets more low quality and MSPainty every week.
How bad would the Jets look without the Dolphins? Is -37 really bad or just bad?
Lmao imagine not being 2-0-1 in 2019
Dolphins need their own column for making history
HA! Look at all those 0-3 teams behind us ...or .. Slightly next to us.. At an angle?
Shout out to the Panthers with one win and the only positive point differential in the NFCS.
I enjoy that the cardinals and lions are in their own worlds and will be all season with the ties lmao
/u/bwredsox34 posted the other styled version here. Is probably more visually appealing for some!
Dolphins going to fuck around and set the record for the highest absolute value of point differential
Yo if the Lions somehow find a way to knock of the Chiefs next week I'll be quite pleasantly surprised.
Really liked the classic logos from last week or the week before.
Take what you want from it, but the bottom three teams are the 3 teams the Pats have played
Is this today's Shit on the Dolphins thread?
I love how the lions are an undefeated team who tied with a team that hasn’t won!
When do we get to play Miami - I want that free +40 points
Panthers turned -9 to +9 in one game. Gotta be pretty happy about that..
It bothers me that the Lions and Cardinals are going to be in their own columns for the entire season
Dolphins heading for 0 - 16 with a - 944 pd
Best of the worst... I'll take it I guess
The tie makes everything stupid.
Don’t give me hope
That's an impressive stat from the Dolphins.
The Derpfins are reaching historic levels of tanking
Yeah, that dolphin definitely needs a helmet.
Dolphins be like -119 points time
LIONS! RAMS! LETS GO!
Look at that special little helmet on that dolphin, rofl.
I'm a Giants fan, but really I just love my hometown and most NY teams. I really want the Jets to compete again, bring the pain to the AFC from NYC. I'm hopeful they can still turn things around.
I wonder what happens to this chart if you control for teams that have played the dolphins? The three biggest differentials are all teams that have played them already.
Come on kingsbury! I believe!
Miami baby what is you doin
I feel very good about where we're at after facing three of arguably the top defenses in the league.
Filling the entire column for the Lions and Cardinals makes them look more important. Why emphasize them like this?
Every team we've played has a negative point differential.
This should be represented like one of those solar system maps, where the Colts are one pixel wide and the Dolphins are Jupiter.
By my calculation the Jets would be Uranus.
What is that dolphins logo?
Damn we still have a +50 point differential. That dolphins game was absurd.
So hiding behind pointless statistics is how you get away with posting memes in the subreddit without getting removed
We have the best PD in the north so far. Still in third place though.
It’s the only time this season the lions can say they’re the best in any category
I'm curious, which team has had the hardest schedule through week 3?
Ah, I see the problem here: the Dolphins aren’t scoring as many points as their opponents. Easy solution Dolphins fans: score more points.
It is almost correlated, but the Vikings and Ravens have fucked it up.
Do the football Gods hate purple?
Point differentials are unfairly biased based on whether you faced the lolphins yet or not
That’s weird somebody put the Bills on the wrong side.
It's crazy that like 30 of our 36 pts differential were in one game...the other two were 1 score games.
This isn't fair for the teams that haven't gotten to play the Jets and Dolphins :(
The saints are going to limp into the playoffs because the NFCS is bad this year. Then drew brees will come back and they’ll go on a run
This is gonna start getting ugly if there's another tie
I love this. All 50+ teams have played the dolpjnis
Are the dolphins just going for the record ???
That Dolphins logo never gets old
Is that Dolphins logo a joke or what? I laughed when I zoomed in
If it wasn't for us dropping a 40 burger on the bucs head they are 2-1, right behind Minnesota, with a +12ish point differential. And everyone is talking about how they are in the driver's seat in the division.
If you care about point differentials, don't play us because we'll wreck your shit bb
The fact that the three best teams in point differential all played the dolphins, shows how unimportant it is this early in the season.
OP is a trashcan poster
And we didn't even play the Dolphins.
LMAO that Dolphins Logo
you've heard of LOLions
but have you considered the 1-0-1ions?
LPT: Play the Dolphins
I feel like this entire post was made just to take a shot at us
What a coincidence that the top two teams played the Dolphins! Who would have thought?
Send me the dirty version bb
Cool visual, horrible graphic, lol at the phins logo
Phins logo is so derpy lol
Lol 9ers didn’t even play the dolphins
Titans tied for 5th highest point differential.
The only thing that makes me feel good about this is seeing the Steelers below us. Who Dey!
There is something truly perfect about mentally impaired looking dolphin with a helmet on.
It's really funny how the Giants an the Steelers are tie. I my head they are so not in the same tier
-92 after two games.. If a team goes a whole season finishing with a -92 point they are a shit team.
Fun fact, the 49ers finished the season 27th in point differential at, you guessed it, -92.
Isn’t there something like this on the front page of this sub, with better logos
Fish team bad.
Bad team good.
LPT: play the Dolphins... also don't play the pats
I would give my left nut for that to be our actual logo
In a class of our own.
Can u re-do this, but with just 2 columns: team = good, team = bad?
As expected with Brissett under center, we are aggressively average
32 teams had the chance to equal the 72 Dolphins undefeated 17-0 season. Now we are down to 9.
The Dolphins are so bad that you could combine their point differential with the Chiefs and Cowboys and they'd still be tied for last.
They took the sun from Miami
The dolphins symbol looks so derpy! Lol
The dolphins are worse than patriots are good holy fuck
Perfectly balanced. As all things should be. - Thanos
Jets logo is their old logo
Decided to just go with a standard logo version for all the teams. Except for the Dolphins. Something about that logo just fits this season.
Also for some reason the standard Dolphins logo was the only non-transparent logo in the NFL archive.
God I love being minimally above average overall
A top 3 defense and a below average offense?
In my Green Bay?
It's more likely than you think
oh my god miami
The entire NFCN is slightly above average, as is tradition.
BOOM, OVER THE LINE BITCHES
49ers had 2 takeaways last year this year were already on 6? I believe crazy what having 2 edge rushers does for a team.
Data via Football Outsiders
lines drawn are the MEDIAN
dotted line is 1:1
Defensive DVOA is reverse to put the BEST defenses on top
Given how evenly matched they are, I'm curious to see Dolphin's O vs their D. Could be competitive
On a serious note, pretty happy to see the Colts at #7 with Luck dropping just a couple week ago. Small sample, but good to see.
you play the chiefs and see what happens to your dvoa
i dont think they'll have as much of a problem against the sleep number guy
According to this chart swapping out Eli Manning for Daniel Jones will not help the Giants fix their problems.
Only two games
Only two games
Ah so Baker's faced the 6th ranked defense and the 8th ranked defense that totally makes sense now on why he's struggled a tiny bit. That's my story and no one can convince me otherwise.
Ah yes the best defense in NFCN, the Packers. Just like everyone predicted.
Wait that’s not right? Why are WE near the Pats?
This confirms my suspicions that the Ravens defense isn’t actually very good. Maybe they just haven’t found their groove yet?
I guess I feel a little better about the 49ers game now.
Huh. We arent as close to Miami as I thought
Okay, let's take a look to see if our offense is the problem or our defense is the problem....
Dammit Mitch! I knew it!
Ha we may suck but at least we’re not the Bengals!
Wow i was really expecting our offensive efficiency to be a lot worse
Please god can we fire Manusky
That’s offensive guru Adam Gase thank you very much.
How are there 6 teams with a lower offensive efficiency than us...?
shhhhh us niner fans are trying to keep our sexiness under the radar
Dolphins and Patriots on opposite ends. I bet if they played, New England would win big.
Really excited to get Robert Quinn from suspension, we need some pass rush help on the outside.
Man, those garbage time points are hurting our DVOA.
It's been so long since I've felt this way.
NFC West is looking really strong so far. Could see them having 3 teams with winning records
Dolphins that dude in the corner of a Bar with a Carona acting like he's gonna get every woman there.
Pats are chilling in the VIP room.
NFCN all right there Neck and Neck
We are the only NFCN team on the double good side? Hell yeah!
oh man this offense with even an average D...
Bills right in the middle, as usual
Look at the dolphins drowning down there LMAO
Fish men bad
You can show this in a statistics class to prove how extreme outliers skew regressions
Is the the first time the Packers have been in the upper left quadrant under Ridgers tenure?
WTF is San Francisco up to. They’re supposed to be no good!
Wait a sec, after yesterday’s game the jets can’t be better then the Miami dolphins?!
NFL really needs a mercy rule...
Welp time to pack it in, just shut down NFL till both Brady and Belichick retire.
ABOVE AVERAGE DEFENSE? I'll take that. If we had an above average defense last year we would have won the super bowl.
Seems a bit harsh on the chargers defense. Holding the lions to 13 on the road and forcing 2 turnovers.
What does the dotted line mean?
Dolphins almost off the charts! Lol
Is this cumulative or just week 2 alone? Thanks btw.
Bucs' defense and offense flipped from last season... couldn't we just find a nice happy medium?
Arizona /Jacksonville/ Oakland /Denver are fighting over that spot. Wondering who will get.
Any stat that says our offense has been playing better than our defense needs to go back to the drawing board.
Something clearly got messed up, Miami should be top right! /s
The Texans are almost perfectly average. Sounds about right
The lions are above average on both offense and defense. Super bowl bound baby!
Perfectly mediocre where we should be
Wtf... Why is defensive efficiency upside down...
Wooooooooo it’s gonna be a funnnn season boisssss
Wtf? I had no idea the Steelers were that bad.
No way the Titans o is above average
There are worse offensive team than my bears? I can't believe it.
Our offense is better than our defense :0
Wow, we finally get a competent OC and our offense is one of the best in the league.
So DVOA accounts for strength of teams played vs expected right? That means we're the number 1 offense after accounting for that?
texans. perfectly balanced. as all things should be
I can't believe we can be reasonably compared to the Pats
The scaling here is wonky as hell.
The idea that the Bears offensive DVOA can be better than so many teams is... y'all should be ashamed of yourselves
The Dolphins tanking skills are on another level
Bills: "What is up fellow 2-0 teams? Can you imagine not being 2-0? I, for one, enjoy being in the company of 2-0 teams, like myself"
Lions and Cards doing their own thing.
Lions and Cards: It’s not a phase mom!
We have the same record as the Bills, Patriots and Niners. What a wild start.
Divisions without a 2-0 team: AFC South, NFC South. Something in the water down in the south?
Bills 2-0 and Steelers 0-2. What a crazy timeline.
So... the ravens have 6 2-0 teams to play....
I'll wait, so show me why you're strong.
Ignore everybody else.
We're alone now.
Bills being 2-0 O-o
saints started 0-2 one year and made the NFCCG. don't lose hope
I personally don’t want to see what this chart looks like at the end of the season please and thank you
Lions got that TIE Fighter lookin' record 1-0-1
sad bolt noises
Yea bby! A league of their own!
the rest of the 2-0 teams are in pretty elite company, if you ask me 😎
2-0 club where you at?
What's up 0-2 brethren! How's y'all day? What flavor of bleach ya drinking?
Thanks for this I guess?
Wooo! Middle row!
Realized last night that Cleveland’s next 5 straight opponents are from column 1.
Let’s go baby!!! One of a kind.
WE ARE SO FUCKING SPECIAL!!! WITNESS US!!!!
Haha look at all those basement dwellers. Doesn't it feel great to be competitive, fellow 1-1 teams ?
This is weird not being in the right side of the chart
NFL plz nerf nfc west thx
What parity problem?
Ties are so fucking stupid
Why do they allow ties in the regular season....
Idiots should just let it go till first score like playoffs.
I'm pretty new to American Football and this my first season. What is the third number for?
What the fuck happened to broncos defense?
What does being on the bottom mean?
Well when you put it that way I guess we do look kinda bad
NCF West is looking pretty stout so far.
Hey hey, we're ok!
The Bucs are 0.5!
And the Brown's next 5 games are played against teams in that far left column? Crazy
The Bengals and Dolphins will hold steady together in the far right column until they play each other week 16. And then they'll stay in the far right column together after tying.
Damn Arizona Detroit messing up this infographic.
“You are what your record says you are”
It bothers me heavily that the columns were not arranged in a way that is symmetrical
I love this time of the season, still difficult to tell which teams are going to do well and which are going to do badly for the most part.
We have 7 games to play against the 2-0 teams.
Tier 2. I'll take it.
Lions continue to be in a class of their own
I can’t wait for the dolphins hard knocks next season
Only 12% of 0-2 teams make the playoffs - by that math, which team of the 0-2 column would you bet on to make the playoffs??
I think I saw somewhere that starting 0-2 had an 8% chance to make the playoffs. Based solely on that, 9 teams are virtually eliminated from playoff contention.
I don't imagine we're getting out of the right column any time soon smdh
WOOOO 0-2 TEAMS WHATS UP BITCHES
There needs to be a column just for Dolphins
NFC West RISE UP
bring the eagles and viking into the second row. then the chart be perfectly balanced, as all things should be. Also help if you right justified the lowley 0-2 teams. and the Cards
At least we’re at the top of our category. That’s totally how this works right?
Three teams in the NFC West crazy
Top 10 finish baby! Lets just call the season over!
the lions would be undefeated with a tie, i love stafford, i really wish he found success in the past decade, well not in 2014 because we were competing in the playoffs :)
Thanos is appalled by this graphic.
Does this chart imply that the Jets are somehow worse than the dolphins?
Best 2-0 Team: Pats
Worst 2-0 Team: Bills
Best 1-1 team: Colts
Worst 1-1 Team: Bears
Best 0-2 Team: Bengals
Worst 0-2 Team: Dolphins
Ayyyy buffalo let's get it
I had the Lions and Cardinals logos extremely large at first but it was too ridiculous
Wait what? It’s been 13 years?
Ok. Now do how long's it's been since they've had back to back winning seasons.
And the Lions are the best in the NFC North, just as everyone expected.
Yea... that’s Ohio’s bad AFCN.
We were at the top of this for a long time, Vance Joseph!
That broncos record lasted soooooo long....
NO! NO! POST IT FROM ONE YEAR AGO IT USED TO BE SUCH A BEAUTIFUL STAT
Texans, Hell yea
Top heavy AFC: ✅
Why is everyone their color except the haha who are green?
Edit: Jags* but I'll leave it for posterity's sake
This post simply reminds me that Vance Joseph sucks dick and ruined our decades long streak without back to back losing seasons.
Would love to see this graphic combined with a graphic that shows consecutive losing seasons
I guess it's been 8 seasons since back to back losing seasons. Considering one of those years we still made the playoffs and had the Beastquake game I'm not sure it actually felt like a losing season
ayyy we're ahead of the steelers
What were the Broncos before this season? I seem to remember it was some absurdly long time.
Edit: Apparently a lot of other people had the same thought.
It's been 19 years since the Patriots have had a single losing season.
Yeah post it now that we're not the largest bar on here... I hate you Vance Joseph
Someone remind me, the Browns are gonna win the AFC North against 2 teams that haven’t posted consecutive losing seasons this century? Cool
Lions are good, everyone mocks them but they are a good team that is slept on. Lions > Packers.
Wasn’t expecting Texans and Cardinals to be that high on the list
Damn last time we had back to back losing seasons was the first two years of the franchise
Fuck Vance Joseph.
I 've been back and forth between central Connecticut and metro NY my whole life and - as crazy as this sounds - there was a time when the local New York teams fanbases felt badly for the Patriots.
I remember when they almost moved to St. Louis, a few of my friends were upset and hoped they'd find a solution to move them to Hartford or stay.
LOL at what they'd say now!
So my birth is the reason for the Pats winning. That's unfortunate.
We should have fired Vance after his first season.
Fucking Vance Joseph...
Am I the only one that’s shocked to see the Bills sitting at 6 years?
HA! Suck it losers. We have 0!
That's almost the Ravens entire existence, isn't it?
Also, the Bills' position on this chart is a reminder that for much of the drought we weren't good enough to make the playoffs, and not bad enough to get a top QB prospect.
Honestly, Ravens & Steelers at 2nd & 4th in the same division is more impressive than Pats and Colts dominating their divisions.
RemindMe! 25 years
Packers with 0? Put it in my veins.
Damn those 8-8 seasons saved our ass^^
In front of the Steelers too. 🤟
Lions at 6 is surprising, tops in our division
I am not a fan of this visual representation
We're crawling out! Although, it seems odd to say that the Bears are 2 years since a losing season, as we only had one recent winning season in 2018-2019. No team could be 1 year based on this.
Also, all those teams at 3 or lower (on the chart) are nice and very competitive with an average expected number of wins well above 9.0.
This makes me very sad as a bronco fan.
Edit: obligatory FUCK YOU VANCE JOSEPH
Surprisingly, there's a lot of Super Bowls among the poopers
Hot damn 6 years? Feels fuckin good.
We’re the best bad team. Hell yeah!
Texans and Cardinals prove this chart means nothing
Get on our level bitcheeeeeeees
Now I can visually see how much my team sucks
As a Browns fan, I feel like we should be ranked lower, hahah.
Jed York makes me sad :’(
Well the cardinals are fucked
I’m shocked about the Texans and Bills.
Seeing the Cardinals that high up the list was surprising.
We were good at this until Bowles
For some reason it surprised me there were 11 teams with current consecutive losing seasons
mutters fucking Dolphins.
This probably counts as self harm given my fandom, but I'd love to see this for back to back winning seasons as well
Cries in the corner.
You know whats weird? Of the teams sittig at 3 or less they've been really successful. Eagles, Broncos, Packers, Giants all have a Super Bowl this decade and 49ers and Rams were in one.
This chart about to be flipped turned upside down
Leading the NFCS lol. Yay for odd years 🤷🏻♂️
Weird how outside of the top 4 that doesn’t correlate to much success
O-Oh yeah? Then why doesn't it feel like it, huh?
Huh we actually haven’t been that terrible
Wow... Niners went from three NFC berths in a row to last on this list.
Fuck you, Jed...
Well the Colts had a nice run.
Rub it in why dontcha.
Packers went 25 years between back to back losing seasons. When Brett started and the past 2 seasons.Edit: pre Brett starting
So sad to see my Broncos there. Thanks Vance. Thanks. If it wasn't for that, we would have had a 46 year streak.
What a time we live in where Detroit and Buffalo are at 6 and Green Bay is at 0
Are all the teams with a 0 hitting their salary caps consistently?
Raiders fans to Packers fans insert "first time?" Meme
🎼 Started at the bottom now we here! 🎼
Mind-blowing that it's been 13 years since the Texans lost for two years in a row. I remember their long stretch as a dumpster fire that felt like it'd never go out. Good on them!
Wouldn’t the Broncos be at the top by A LOT prior to last season?!?
Texans and Bills are most surprising!
A rare positive stat in which the Lions lead the NFCN.
Considering the Bears are below us and the Packers are at the bottom, I'll allow it.
Bout to change for the Browns.
Patriots and Steelers I expected, surprised by the Ravens and the Colts. I could get that playing in their current division then Bengals and the Browns which was an easy 4 wins a year. The Colts? Damn, good job.
Thanks for the reminder of how shitty Vance Joseph was for the Broncos.
Fuck Chip Kelly
I had to look way higher than i expected, thank you 8-8 and Bruce Arians winning at Seattle.
Fuck chip kelly
we used to be at the top of this list :(
Hate for Vance Joesph intensifies
Well when you put it that way, it's not too bad. We just THINK we suck
A visual representation of my hard on
Raiders - 0
Broncos - 0
Chargers - 3
I LIKE THIS LIST!
5-11, 5-11, 5-11
The Ravens are the craziest one to me, 21 seasons of solid play and 2 Super Bowls and their best QB in that stretch was Joe Flacco
Nightmares with Vance Joseph
Fucking Dave Campo.....
Colts baby! That’s about to change...
For the 49’ers, every season is losing season!
The packers. Hahahaha. Warms my heart.
Hmmmm I wonder why the Pats consistently have winning records.
Hehe suck it packers
I am a simpleton --- I look at my team and my rival to be happy
7 seasons without back to back losing seasons and no back to back winning seasons either.
It tells me how old I am as I can clearly remember the pre-Bledsoe Patriots and their one win seasons
Its these kinds of stats I see and, whenever someone says Irsay is a bad owner, I'm just kinda like "right"
Dam if luck hadnt retired with Brady on his way out soon we for sure could take that #1 spot
I think our overall team is good enough to keep it going for now. Realistically patriots will hit 30+
Loving that pats dominance. It still pisses me of to see Dallas so high up. Let’s hope they shit the bed this year
Needs some indication somewhere on whether they had a losing season last year.
Ravens stole a lot of years there.....F Art Model
Can you provide a chart that shows how long it’s been since each team has had consecutive non-winning seasons? Perhaps consecutive seasons without missing the playoffs as well?
Patriots have never had a losing season under Robert Kraft
Well that settles it Cardinals [insert QB name here] is better than Packers Aa-ron Rodgers
This is shit.
A team could go 8-40 over three years without b2b losing seasons (0-16, 8-8, 0-16).
I'm pretty sure the broncos had never had back to back losing seasons before doing it the last two years.
Edit: '71-'72 was the last time. Still a really long time for a team that went through some rough years.
The Rams and the Jags are in serious trouble.
I'm pleasantly stunned this is catching on
Also really terrified about my team
Link to original [OC] post by u/JaguarGator9
tl;dr no team has ever won a playoff game after scoring less than 43 points in the preseason
JG9 pointed out that the 5th preseason game isn't excluded in this. The Falcons are at 47.
Business as usual in Falcons land.
It’s really no surprise to me that the offensive powerhouse known as the Ravens have surpassed the line already
The rams are currently sitting their starters no? For the whole preseason? Wonder how that'll affect this
I can see this line becoming irrelevant as more teams play less and less starters. Preseason games are becoming even more meaningless
Cowboys 'bout to wreck this curve again.
It's not magic if you have to move the line every year. It's just an interesting statistic. This is the same shit as the Peyton & Brady QB generations "rule".
Phew, I was worried we wouldn't be competitive this year.
Man, we just barely managed to make it. Superbowl here we come!
I don't think you included the HoF game in this, so falcons and broncos should have more. (Broncos are currently at 43 if you include the HoF game).
The original post specifically says number of games doesn't matter. Just have to hit 43, even if it's in 5 or 3 games.
44 points huh
OP I asked jaguargator9 and he said HOF game counts, Broncos are at 43.
tl;dr the new york daniel jones giants are the best team in the nfl
I'd buy into this more next year if we watch the Rams miss the playoffs. Spooky.
fortunately, were on pace. maybe we'll catch up some in week 4 when our back ups finally get to play against other back ups
On pace for 46! We're headed to the top!
See you in the Super Bowl glares at chart Vikings
I worry for the rams and jags. I wouldn't be surprised to see the rams crash back to earth.
Didn’t hold up last year. Doubt it will this year.
Closer than I would have expected. I'll take it.
Is he a fucking subreddit now?
Our superbowl run will be as big of surprise as a kicker tackling a returner.
Considering we’ve only had two games, wouldn’t an average make more sense?
So many sub-43 plebs doing damage control over our prophet’s highly tested metric.
League is absolutely fucked by the DoubleDerp Eli-DJ two QB sets we’re going to employ, just doesn’t know it yet.
Giants are SB champs?
If I tell you it's Easter, you better hide eggs
Amazing. Absofuckinglutely amazing!
For reference, that's Marcus Pollard. He was a basketball player turned undrafted free agent TE before Antiono Gates made it cool. Didn't play college football. Speedy pass-catcher. Made plays like these:
Edit: the sound on that video is awful
Must be a common saying in the Manning family. Eli said something similar to Saquon
I love this style of aphorism.
My dad's favorite was: "Son, if I tell you it's Christmas in July you better hang your stocking. Because Santa Claus is coming to town."
"If I tell you it's Easter I need you to confirm whether it is or not because I'm high as fuck and I see eggs all around me." -Ryan Leaf
why didn't you include the photo of the confrontation from the article?
i was listening to the yahoo sports nfl podcast (good one to listen to btw, terez paylor is the man) and they told a story of some random player coming onto the practice field with an untucked jersey and peyton yelled at him "tuck in your shirt, have some god damn pride" or something along those lines
I'm guessing this isn't anti-Patriots legend Bernard Pollard
I expected it and still got hit with both Manning faces, the low res and 70mm IMAX, and enjoyed every bit.
Best QB of all-time.
THIS IS LEADERSHIP 💯
I don’t get it, where’s the reference to insurance supposed to go?
To be a coach takes a lot of time in the office so I get why it's not very appealing to some people. Peyton NEEDS to be a coach. I can only imagine he would be great. While hearing him calling games seems appealing I think I would much rather see him coach a team.
