Poll: Will Dolphins make the playoffs?

The Miami Dolphins are dreaming big this season. The team -- including owner Stephen Ross -- is thinking playoffs for the 2013 season.

There is a significant preseason buzz around the Dolphins. But did Miami do enough to earn the preseason hype?

The Dolphins spent more than $200 million on free-agent contracts, and also traded up to the No. 3 overall pick to select dynamic defensive end Dion Jordan.

Or is Miami setting itself up for a big failure? The Dolphins haven’t had a winning record since 2008, and they still have a lot to prove in key areas. Is quarterback Ryan Tannehill ready to make the jump in Year 2? Can Jonathan Martin solidify the left tackle position? Will the pass defense improve from its 27th ranking a year ago?

The Dolphins still have a lot of work to do before Week 1 of the regular season. We saw that last weekend in a 24-20 preseason loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Is this Miami team playoff-bound?
