To the OP. I'd go with your gut instinct for the Dolphins. They are down on their luck at the moment, but there is a lot to be said for following a team that is down, and being a part of the whole rebuilding process. Of course there is a risk that they may not win anything for the next 20-30 years, but it will mean a lot more if/when they do get it right and have success in the future, as you will have invested so much in the team through tsupporting them in the lean times.

Conversely, you could choose the Packers and there's a good chance that you will see them be successful in 4 months time. You could become a fan and watch the highlights of their stars lifting the Lombardi just 18 months ago. For me, choosing a team that is already elite and with a history of recent success, means that you miss out on so much of what it means to be a fan and how very difficult and special it is for your team to be successful in the NFL.
