Ryan Tannehill is 1-0 against his fellow 2012 drafted counterpart. Will Seattle remain dominant? Or will history repeat itself with a Ryan Tannehill led victory […]

You hear it all the time. “Why do you care so much? It’s just dudes playing a GAME!” Maybe to some, football is “just a game” but to the guys and gals that watch this beautiful sport, it’s far more than just a game. It’s a spectacle! It’s waking up early on Sundays to get […]

A player’s job in the NFL is unlike most professions in many ways. Voting for captains (superiors) is one of those unique traits. Today, the Dolphins elected five captains for the 2016 season. Offense: Ryan Tannehill – The quarterback had better be one of the captains of the team. Ryan Tannehill and his grey, dull […]

The number one thing to take away from the pre-season is that you shouldn’t take anything away from the pre-season. These glorified scrimmages can prove who is worthy of the bubble spots on the roster and who is capable of flashing ability in one-on-one situations. The pre-season has had its bright spots sprinkled in over […]

Adam Gase provided a depth chart that not even Dallas Thomas’ mom thought to be true throughout the entire pre-season. Listing the embattled offensive lineman as the first team left guard was very “Belichickian” of the rookie head coach. With the Seahawks only six days away, and the team beginning early preparations, an accurate depth […]

In an attempt to bolster the wide receiving corps that is lacking size, and at the same time, ridding themselves of players whose name sound like bad porno names, The Miami Dolphins have signed former Tennessee Titan, Justin Hunter (6’4″, 200 lbs) and released Griff Whalen (Cable Guy/Pizza Delivery Boy in adult movies). The move […]

The following players were cut today to get the roster to 53. Imagine if you are a football player and aren’t good enough to make a team like the Miami Dolphins…ouch: Players in bold, commentary in (parenthesis) CUTS: OL Sam Young (Great first name, bad player) CB Chimdi Chekwa (ChekWHY was this a surprise to […]

When you hear the letters “ACL” you often think of a player falling down with no contact and joining the injured reserve for the rest of the season. The anterior crucial ligament or ACL tear is one of the most career threatening injuries due to its long recovery time and high risk of re-injury. Today […]

Our paper bag mascot has become quite popular with our readers and listeners. And the time is right for us to name our paper friend proper. And since we can’t decide on a name ourselves, and in a desperate attempt to be more interactive with the audience, we have decided to make this an official […]

I have been extremely dismissive of this final pre-season game tonight. Before we get into this piece, let’s touch on three things I want to look for: 1.) Xavien Howard – He’s been anointed the defacto starter week one in Seattle and I find the message to be a bit mixed. Here you’ve made Laremy […]

Sam and Chris review the game against the Atlanta Falcons and hand out their “Worst Players Ever” awards in addition to breaking down every roster spot available and predicting the final 53 man roster for opening day. Who do Sam and Chris see staying? Who gets cut? And can Dallas Thomas survive yet ANOTHER bad […]

Falcons 6 Dolphins 17 Although not outstanding by any measure, that performance gave me a much better feeling heading into the season. The best news of all, assuming Ndamukong Suh’s ankle injury is as minor as we’re told, the Dolphins get out of this game without any serious injuries and appear poised (knock on wood) […]

Atlanta Falcons (2-0) @ Miami Dolphins (1-1) Thursday August 25 8:00 EST – Hard Rock Stadium – NBC National Broadcast   The third pre-season game is always the “dress rehearsal” for the regular season. Just as the Dolphins are preparing for their contest possible adding some minimal scheming, I’m going to transition more into a […]

Jam packed show this week as Sam and Chris review the 41-14 drubbing at the hands of the Dallas Cowboys, as well as preview the Thursday Night, prime time match up against the Atlanta Falcons. Find out who we thought were the worst players ever in week 2. And what Ridiculous Predictions do we have […]

I was immediately worried when Mike Pouncey left the Dolphin’s preseason game due to injury against the Dallas Cowboys last Friday night. While he was able to return to play later in the quarter there now reports that he will miss the rest of preseason and possibly the season opener due to an undisclosed hip […]

Dolphins 14 (1-1) Cowboys 41 (1-1) That was difficult to stomach. That queasy, unwelcomed feeling of watching this team fall helplessly off the rails reared its ugly head once more as Miami were completely undone by the Cowboys. There are inevitable mistakes that will occur in the pre-season. Missed assignments, blown coverages, penalties, substitution issues […]

Miami Dolphins (1-0) @ Dallas Cowboys (0-1) Friday August 19, 8:00 EST Cowboys Stadium   Now that you’ve removed your finger from the panic button and prepare for another installment of Dolphins football, let’s get you ready for the game. The Cowboys came out on fire against the Rams in their opener taking the opening […]

Dolphins 27 (1-0) Giants 10 (0-1) I created a system to grade players via film study using statistics that I’ve either invented myself, borrowed from other football enthusiasts, or some combination of the two. I watched the game against the Giants just like most of you probably did -with a beer in my hand while […]

Football is finally back! Granted it is week one of Pre-Season and the majority of players that we actually know will spend more time standing on the sidelines than crouching in the huddle. But still…FOOTBALL! Sam and Chris review the positions and personnel that they will be keeping a keen eye on, during this game. […]

On the last episode of the pod, Sam mentioned this being the hottest Dolphins blog on the internet. He quickly provided a disclaimer that the content didn’t reflect my personal appearance. To disprove his utter non-sense, I had some professional glamour shots done – enjoy.   Now that games are on the horizon this blog will take […]

  The Miami Dolphins have spent over 500 million dollars and years of design and construction to remodel and renovate the house that Joe Robbie built. Sam and Chris discuss those improvements, address the criticism some fans have lobbed towards the project and what home field advantages the new/old stadium provides Miami. The boys also […]

The biggest area of change from last year is the defensive backfield. The top two corners will be new starters, as will the free safety, and a lot of the depth has been replaced. It’s a bit ironic that, arguably, the team’s worst unit features its best player. Reshad Jones is the one sure fire […]

Fire up the week 17 tape of the victory over the Patriots and you’ll notice a common theme with the Miami defense. You’ll see linebackers flying to the ball, filing gaps and playing, far and away, their best games of the season. Neville Hewitt was everywhere stopping the run and even shielding Rob Gronkowski on […]

Training Camp for the Miami Dolphins has started and Day One provided a ton of news. Multiple players were put on the PUP list to the surprise of many, Dion Jordan got reinstated on a provisional basis, Jason Taylor landed a new job with the franchise and the return of Wakezilla astonishes everyone, including Head […]

Sam and Chris return to discuss the recent signing of Arian Foster, the retiring of Greg Jennings and Chris ranks all the NFL teams outside of the AFC East in order from least to most hated. Plus, we spend a second discussing the AFC East. Contact Perfectville via e-mail at @perfectvillepodcast@gmail.com and follow us on Twitter: @PerfectvillePod. […]

When the Dolphins signed video game legend, Donkey Kong Suh, I made the impulsive claim that Miami sported one of the best defensive lines in the history of the game. Suh will go down as a top five interior lineman when it’s all over, Cam Wake had been a top five pass rusher for a […]

The unfortunate circumstance of Ryan Tannehill’s imminent rise to league-wide respectability is that all the credit will go directly to Adam Gase. That’s one of the prevailing premises of the National Football League though – these professionals can’t allow ego to interrupt their overcoming of obstacles. I’m a frequent listener of various football podcasts and […]

This is the group that determines the fate of the 2016 Dolphins more so than any other. The strides made from the revamped coaching staff will be apparent from day one, but the new and improved line may take some time to gel and find cohesion. Playing in synchrony is one thing, but we’re also […]

Patrons of football gambling are responsible for at least a portion of the chandeliers in Las Vegas. Picking games against the spread is a difficult way to make a living. The outcomes are unpredictable and, more often than not, the house wins. Why is this? Every year, players prove to be something different than what […]

In part one of this series, I chronicled the players that distribute the football and the tight ends. Part two examines the players that finish the plays – the backs and wide outs. I recently read a complaint on a ‘Phins message board about the lack of star power this team has had basically since […]

Football is the ultimate team game. Stats only tell a partial truth that must be backed up with what the eye in the sky says because different assignments and play responsibilities can have a “trickle-down effect” on a player’s teammates. Sure, losing Cam Wake mid-season hamstrung (Achilles-strung?) the pass rush. But the primary culprit in […]

The All Paper Bag Team   I grew up a prototypical 90’s kid. Nicktoons ran on loop, I played Nintendo 64 at a Reshad Jones level and when I got home from school, I took to the backyard to play whatever sport was in season. At 7:10 pacific standard time every night I watched Ken […]

On this trip to Perfectville, Sam and Chris focus on the Miami Dolphins fight song. This infamous bad song was written and performed by Lee Ofman after The Dolphins had their perfect season, and it has stuck itself to the franchise like a wet paper bag, ever since. However, is it the worst NFL fight […]

When Sam and Chris first introduced me to “Perfectville,” I was hooked. I desperately wanted to attach my name to it. So when Sam reached out to offer me the Head Writer position, I responded emphatically with “THAT’S ANOTHER MIAMI DOLPHINS, FIRST DOWN! (my way of accepting.) I grew up watching Dan Marino but I […]

On this trip to Perfectville, we explore the brief hold out of Safety Reshad Jones. The superstar Defensive Back ended the minutes-long trepidation of Dolfans everywhere by showing up to mandatory mini-camp and participating with the team for the first time since last season. Plus, Miami cuts a quarterback, Sam and Chris can’t figure out […]

Sam and Chris return after being on the PUP list for a few weeks due to surgeries and performances. And coming back with them, FOOTBALL! Well, organized team activities, at least. So…sorta football. Perfectville catches you up on all the latest news and views regarding Dion Jordan’s pending reinstatement, Cameron Wake’s insane comeback from a […]

The NFL Competition Committee has approved nine new rules for the 2016-2017 season. From banning chop blocks all together, to further attempts to stop kick off returns and everything in between. Find out what the rules are, and how they pertain to the Miami Dolphins in this episode!   Follow Sam on Twitter @ Tigerclawmedy Follow […]

The picks are in and The Miami Dolphins have arguably walked away with the most talented, yet most controversial, player in the draft. Offensive Tackle Laremy Tunsil, once thought to be a sure fire first overall pick, saw that go up in smoke as a damning video of him smoking pot surfaced minutes before the […]

The BBC’s own Simon Clancy visits Perfectville to discuss the impending NFL Draft. What position does Simon feel is a lock to be addressed with Miami’s first pick? Which player does Simon feel is the best overall? Is Miami responsible for some false rumors about top prospects in an effort to get them to drop […]

Miami Dolphins Owner, Stephen Ross, is reportedly thinking about naming the stadium where the MIAMI DOLPHINS play, New York Life Stadium. Obviously, this is a PR disaster that cannot happen. Sam and Chris have decided to come up with acceptable alternatives to this ridiculous idea, in order to help the franchise from once again, screwing […]

Sam and Chris are back again, and this time they reflect on the lost decades of bad coaching. From poor decisions, jerks and horrendous lies, to a rash of great guys who couldn’t coach a pee-wee team, Miami has run the gamut of sucktitude at the head coach position. Grab a drink and brace for […]

Sam and Chris are back to discuss the first week of NFL Free Agency. Perfectville reviews the Byron Maxwell/Kiko Alonso trade, the Mario Williams, Isa Abdul-Quddus  and Jermon Bushrod signings, as well as the swing and miss for C.J. Anderson by our beloved Dolphins. Additionally, since Brent Grimes left Miami to sign with the Tampa […]

Sam and Chris are BACK after a three week hiatus. The boys talk about their first impressions of free agency in 2016 for the Miami Dolphins. From the controversial trade with the Philadelphia Eagles, to Mario Williams signing with Miami and more. We also discuss the impending losses of Lamar Miller, Olivier Vernon and others. […]

The Carolina Panthers just lost the Super Bowl and Cam Newton is devastated. There is nothing worse than losing the biggest game in your chosen sport, right?   Wrong. 62-7. The Monday Night Meltdown. Spray Mucus. “See You After Practice,” and more.   These are just some of the legendary and iconic losses the Miami […]

The Miami Dolphins had a historically bad offensive line in 2015. Awful in run blocking and terrible in pass blocking. Injury after injury and a depth pool so shallow that even Jesus’s friends could walk across it. Sam and Chris discuss what can be done to help fix in in time for the 2016 NFL […]

Sam and Chris discuss the pending free agents for the Miami Dolphins. Who should we re-sign, who we should let go elsewhere, and why? Lamar Miller, Olivier Vernon, Derrick Shelby, Rishard Mathews, Jake Stoneburner and all the others are discussed. Plus, Sam and Chris cannot remember a former Miami Dolphins turned New England Patriots player’s […]

Ryan Tannehill has been the starting Quarterback for the Miami Dolphins for four years. Some say he is the team’s “Franchise”, while others feel the organization needs to move on and find his replacement. Sam and Chris take up either side of this debate in this episode that is sure to spark conversation amongst fellow […]

The 2015 NFL Season for the Miami Dolphins did not go as planned. Which means it was about par for the course. Despite the losing record and missing the playoffs again, there were some actual highlights throughout the season. Sam and Chris give out their prestigious awards to the Miami Dolphins players and plays that […]

Sam and Chris debut “Perfectville” by discussing the debut of The Miami Dolphins new head coach, Adam Gase. Is the hire a good fit for Miami? What type of offense can we expect to run under Mr. Gase? Was Dan Campbell treated fairly or was he shafted out of a job that should have been […]
