NEW YORK (AP) Comments on the Miami Dolphins by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):
MIAMI DOLPHINS (19)
Chris Berman (ESPN, 27) - At least they won honoring the 40th anniversary of the 1972 unbeaten team.
Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 18) - Can still finish .500, which would be nice first year for Joe Philbin.
Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 19)
Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 18) - Nice win and performance by the Dolphins over Jacksonville, this team will finish strong.
Bob Glauber (Newsday, 20) - Ryan Tannehill with a sharp effort against an admittedly weak Jacksonville defense. Even so, important progress for the rookie quarterback.
Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 19) - For the fourth consecutive season, all three of Florida's NFL teams will miss the playoffs. The Dolphins, Bucs and Jaguars have a combined 14-28 record. The last Florida team to make the playoffs was Miami as a division champion in 2008.
Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 18) - Maybe the Miami Marlins should do their civic duty and start sending their best players to these guys.
Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 19) - They'll look back and realize they've wasted some good defense in 2012.
Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 20) - A solid defense and a rookie quarterback with limited talent in the receiver group equals a mediocre season.
John Lynch (Fox Sports, 19) - The Dolphins had come off losses to the Patriots and 49ers and had a chance to exhale against the lowly Jaguars.
Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 20) - The Dolphins still aren't very good on offense, but Jacksonville was worse.
Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 18) - If they could play the Jaguars every week, it might seem like 1972 all over again.
