Miami Dolphins Hit The Grind

It is the last week of May so we all know what that means OTAs (Organized Team Activities). Little more than glorified practices but let’s be honest little over a hundred days away from the start of the season and we are starved for anything football. We get little snippets, little hints, little teases that’s…

Ryan Tannehill is the Miami Dolphins Quarterback-Until he isn’t.

It is really that simple. Tannehill will be the starter until he is not. Some seem to have a hard time understanding that. Some fans feel that he’s the worst quarterback to ever come through these parts. That simply is not true. While he will never be an elite quarterback he is still a solid…

Eventful Sunday

“Here’s a Christmas present. You don’t have to ask me anymore. He has one year left on contract and is coming back.” Miami Dolphins owner Steve Ross to reporters regarding head coach Joe Philbin. The announcement that the head coach would return was only the last item of an eventful Sunday for the hometown team….

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…

Four Quarters: Miami Dolphins v. Green Bay Packers

Sunday morning I decided I would do things a little different this week. Instead of the usual review/preview I thought I would try to write about my thoughts as the game was going on. Quarter by quarter. So here goes… Four Quarters: Green Bay Packers v. Miami Dolphins First Quarter. Green Bay started out with…

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…

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: 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…
