Nope.

1/1 for zero losses

3/4 for one lose

11/15 for two lose

Overall 75% of the teams that lose two games or less go home with the lomardi.
Did you see the part where I listed every team, by year, that failed to win the SB?  There are obviously a LOT more that failed to win, but you're claiming that over 75% did win?

What exactly are you disagreeing with?  If those numbers are what I think they are, that's not how fractions work.  1/1 and 1-1 are not equivalent.

I wanted to post this yesterday but haven't had the chance . Kind of funny if you ask me.

... one day after receiver Kenny Stills ripped Jay-Z for his decision to do a deal with the NFL without regarding to the ongoing unemployment of quarterback Colin Kaepernick, the Dolphins dialed up eight straight Jay-Z songs at practice.

Rumors from camp is that Flores doesn't like all the "extra attention" Stills is bringing to the team. Considering Flores is definitively a team first person one has to think this was a message being sent to Stills and others.

D4L thinks wearing his "lucky shirt" on game day influences the outcome of the game.  

I still blame Pats 2007 lose on BB wearing a red hoodie instead of his typical gray. 🙂

Teams that have had two or less losses almost always win the SB.
This is not even close to accurate.  Since the merger (and excluding the strike-shortened '82 season):

2 loss teams (11/31, 35.5% SB win rate):
W 16NE 04NE 03NE 98DEN 91WSH 89SF 86NYG 78PIT 77DAL 75PIT 73MIA
L 10NE 09IND 06SD 05IND 01RAM 99JAX 98ATL 92SF 90SF 87SF 86CHI 84MIA 83WSH 77DEN 75MIN 75RAM 74RAI 73MIN 73RAM 70MIN

1 loss teams (3/7, 42.9% SB win rate):
W 85CHI 84SF 76RAI
L 15CAR 11GB 04PIT 98MIN

0 loss teams (1/2, 50% SB win rate):
W 72MIA
L 07NE

During every season in which MIA won the Super Bowl, they lost no more than 2 games.

Therefore, the moment the Dolphins lose their third game, the season is over.

That one actually makes more sense than most of this thread.  While there certainly have been teams that have won the SB despite having more than two loses.  Teams that have had two or less losses almost always win the SB.  I can recall only one exception.

I think there is an advantage to starting Rosen several games into the season, instead of week #1.  The starts to seasons are always a little out of whack due to new players, and them getting use to working around players that have been on the team for a couple years - preseasons aren't what they used to be, teams don't really get as much full speed, full contact like decades ago.  Secondly, once again the Dolphins have all new coaches and coordinators on staff, so even veteran dolphins players are getting use to the new schemes.  So my point is that if you let the rest of the team settle in to some sort of rhythm over the first three games it would give Rosen a more stable structure to come off the bench and in to start games.  Ten games is plenty to evaluate if Rosen is any better than he was last year.

That is a valid point.  If you genuinely feel the O-line will be offering better protection in week 4 vs week 1 (even taking in to account that opposing D-lines will have extra time to gel) than there is some merit in not having Rosen undergoing concussion protocol during the first quarter of week 1.
