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…

Johnny Clipboard

It has been announced that Brian Hoyer will start week one for the Cleveland Browns. Johnny Football will start his career as Johnny Clipboard. While some national media may try to paint this as a mistake it makes perfect sense. This is not about the partying, it is not about the middle finger on Monday Night Football….

The Ray Rice Conversation

There are some columns I try not to write, some subjects I try to avoid. Often it is a simple case of asking if I am the person who should be talking about this subject. Then again sometimes an issue keeps gnawing at you and you realize that like it or not it is time…

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…

Chasing Excellence

As each week passes we get closer to the return of the NFL. Training camps approach, preseason beacons. Fans start being fans. They obsess about every little bit of information they hear about their teams. Some obsess as much about what their rivals do. One of the common complaints is that their team did not…

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…
