The Miami Dolphins have currently gone the longest of any NFL franchise without winning a franchise game. But despite the recent failures, it sounds like the team is optimistic about changing that in the future.

Miami has not won a postseason game since 2000. But during a press conference this week, Dolphins General Manager Chris Grier made it clear while the results aren’t necessarily what the team wants, he still feels optimistic about the future and the direction of the team under head coach Mike McDaniel.

“Yeah, I mean we feel good about it,” Grier said.

“First off, congratulations to Detroit and Dan Campbell,” Grier said according to Pro Football Talk. “I’m happy for Dan. He was here and is a good guy and a good man. Him and Brad [Holmes] are doing a good job there, so I’m happy for them. But for us, we’re just going to keep grinding, chopping wood. We have a good roster. We know that we’ll keep adding and the team will look different.

“As we all know every year, 30 or 40 percent or more of rosters change. But we’ll find ways to have good players here and be competitive. We are very excited about our core nucleus players here. We will be competitive. The goal is to win the AFC East and win a playoff game, and ultimately a Super Bowl. That’s the goal of all 32 teams and it’s no different for us.”

We’ll have to see whether or not the Dolphins can snap this streak next season.
