Miami Dolphins Week 2: The Great White North, The Buffalo Bills

Last week was a great win. The Miami Dolphins did everything in their power to give the game to the Patriots in the first half. Three turnovers by the Dolphins turned into 20 quick and easy points for Tom Brady and the Patriots. On top of that the entire starting linebacking corps was out with…

Everyone Loves the Backup Quarterback.

There are times when I think the fans are the ones who need to be drug tested. This is one of those times. Over this past weekend I have heard fans suggesting that the Miami Dolphins start Matt Moore over Ryan Tannehill. This was after Moore gifted the Dallas Cowboys with a pick-six during their…

Miami Dolphins Training Camp Primer: Linebackers

The linebacker position was an issue last season that needed addressing. I wrote about it leading up to the draft. It can be found here. It was a frustrating situation. Dannell Ellerbee and Philip Wheeler were brought in to inject youth and speed to the linebacking corps. They were expected to improve an already solid front seven….

Miami Dolphins Training Camp Primer: Defensive Line

  The Miami Dolphins defensive line was a strength of this team last season and it continues to be one this year. Even with the departure of Paul Soliai and the 4-game suspension of last years first round pick Dion Jordan this unit should continue to impress. It is not simply the talent on the field it…

Miami Dolphins Training Camp Primer: Offensive Line

  It is rare that a teams number one need heading into the offseason is as obvious as the Miami Dolphins was headed into this offseason. Giving up 58 sacks will do that. Having a scandal hijack your season will do that. Needing to replace 3/5ths of your offensive line will do that. There is…

Miami Dolphins Training Camp Primer: Wide Receivers and Tight Ends

Much of the focus the offseason is on Ryan Tannehill. Will the new offensive line protect him? Will he make the next step? Is he this franchise’s “franchise” QB? While those questions are valid, the answers will always depend on other players as well. No matter how good Tannehill plays he will always depend on…

Miami Dolphins Training Camp Primer: Running Backs

Earlier is this series I addressed the quarterback position, now I take a look at the running backs. The running back position will be important for the Dolphins success this season. To call last seasons production in the running game disappointing is an understatement. Only six teams ran for fewer yards than Miami did last year. With…

Miami Dolphins Training Camp Primer: Quarterbacks

As the season creeps closer the Miami Dolphins prepare for training camp. With one OTA in the books the time has come to take a good look at the position groups. Decisions will need to be made. Some dreams will simply come to an end. Before any of that happens it helps to look at…

First Day of OTAs. 100 days to NFL season.

Today is the first day of OTAs (organized team activities), the precursor to NFL training camps. Some are covering today as if it matters. It really does not. Teams simply kick the tires and try to knock off some of the rust. For fans it does give us some hope. If nothing else it is the…

Miami Dolphins 2014 Draft: Rounds 1-3

After month after month of scouting, debating and a multitude of other moves the 2014 NFL draft has come and gone. Watching the moves Dennis Hickey and the Miami Dolphins made this weekend I am decidedly underwhelmed. It is not that they made bad picks, overall they choose well, it is the hope for something…
