Miami Dolphins vs. Baltimore Ravens: Five Things

When the Miami Dolphins came out to a 10-0 lead against the Baltimore Ravens Sunday I felt pretty good, that feeling did not last. Of course I felt good the defense had stuffed the Ravens offense for three straight drives, the offense seemed to be able to move the ball on Baltimore’s defense as well. All…

Just One

Just one. Just one play changes a win to a loss. One throw, one catch. One stop. Single plays throughout the course of a sixty-minute, sometimes longer, game mean all the difference. These plays separate pretender from contender. These plays build a champion. On Sunday, the Miami Dolphins just needed one play from their defense….

Showdown at Mile High-Miami Dolphins v. Denver Broncos

Sunday afternoon the Miami Dolphins take the field against the Denver Broncos in the most important game of the 2014 season. At this point in the NFL season every game is the most important game. Each game sets up the next as teams jockey for playoff position. This particular game sets up a faceoff with…

Dolphins-Bills Round 2

Sundays game at the Detroit Lions was a fistfight. It was a back alley brawl. Miami struggles against physical teams, but on Sunday they took every punch and threw a few of their own. I found myself in an odd position. On the one hand I was disappointed that Miami could not pull out the…

Play the team in front of you.

The scene was set at Wembley Stadium in London, Sunday September 28th. Perhaps the most important game of this young season for the Miami Dolphins. It was an important game no doubt. The Dolphins were not in must win territory but a win(or loss) here could go a long way in determining how the rest of…

Wheels falling off.

Three games. That is all. Three games into the season and the wheels seem to be coming off these Miami Dolphins. If you talked to fans that is what they would tell you. It only took two games to erase the excitement of the opening game victory over the New England Patriots. Two games. Fingers…

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…
