HAPPY NEW NFL YEAR! The new season is officially here, and The Miami Dolphins are celebrating by completely changing their players. Elite defenders released, franchise players traded away and team captains cut. Adam Gase and the rest of the front office are hell bent on changing the culture of The Dolphins, even if […]

  Sam is back from his comedy tour, and Chris is back from his nationwide fireside chats! And since both are back in the friendly confines of Perfectville, they have decided to discuss the front office of the Miami Dolphins. Who is really calling the shots on player personnel? Who is to blame for some […]

  Perfectville returns to discuss the awful linebacking corps of the 2017 Miami Dolphins. Season ending injuries, AWOL veterans, under performing team captains and even an arrested thrown in for good measure, needless to say, but this unit was incredibly bad this past season. New Defensive Coordinator, Matt Burke, was able to improve the backfield, […]

    The votes have been tallied and the Citizens of Perfectville demand that Sam and Chris discuss the wide receiving corps. Jarvis Landry led the league in the receptions, but has publicly made it known that he feels disrespected by Adam Gase and the Miami Dolphins during contract negotiations. Can the relationship between the […]

  The boys are back in Perfectville and ready to FIGHT. After a 40-0 beat down against The Ravens on Thursday Night Football, which saw Kiko Alonso deliver the check to Joe Flacco and Suh choking out a fat druggie, Miami went on to follow that effort up by losing to a depleted Oakland Raiders […]

Fires. Earthquakes. Birthdays. Comedy Shows. Nothing can keep the Perfectville crew away! Well…for longer than a week, anyway. The boys return to discuss Miami’s mini-win streak, including the surprising come from behind win against The Falcons. What is Miami doing right? What are they doing wrong? And did our former o-line coach leave any “white […]

Chris Cullen returns home from vacation to find out he is under water. Meanwhile the Miami Dolphins return home for THEIR vacation in London to find out that they are under .500 and in last place afte rbeing shut out, 20-0, against the New Orleans Saints. Coach Adam Gase said after the game that we […]

Well, Sam’s prediction of a perfect season went down in flames in the second game of the year, as the Miami Dolphins were poached by the New York Jets of New Jersey, 20-6, in a performance that can only be described as “garbage”. What went wrong? And more importantly, can it be fixed? Which coaches […]

It is #FTJ Week! Which means it is time for Adam Gase and The Miami Dolphins to fly to New Jersey and remove the spirit of J-E-T-S fans, everywhere. New York’s AFC football team is dead last in points allowed and rushing yards allowed, while not being much better on the offensive side of the […]

After a long off-season and a painful preseason, the Miami Dolphins have licked their wounds and are finishing off the remainder of the silly season against the Vikings, before heading home to face the Buccaneers in the regular season opener. Sam and Chris discuss what they have seen so far from their beloved Dolphins, and […]

Jay Cutler is now the starting Quarterback for the Miami Dolphins. The cigarette smoking, posing naked for pictures, gunslinger is no longer retired and is dropping his television mic and picking up his aqua and coral helmet to reunite with his former Offensive Coordinator, Adam Gase, in South Beach. How does Jay’s signing impact the […]

It is August, which means FOOTBALL! YAY! Sam and Chris discuss the first week of Training Camp: Jay Ajayi’s apparent head injury. Does Miami really need Jay to show anything in training camp? Will they seek out a veteran to add for depth? Or will Kenyan Drake and Damien Williams be enough if the J-Train […]

The boys return home to Perfectville and are bringing a slice of VEGAS with them this week. That is because the sports books have The Miami Dolphins as an Over/Under of 7.5 wins in 2017, which Sam and Chris feel is way too low. So, in an effort to help Las Vegas out, Chris and […]

Chris recently suffered a gruesome ankle injury, that Sam mocks to infinity. The boys re-call times where they pooped and peed themselves during athletic contests, and find time to discuss the actual football team a little bit, as well. What unit on offense is stacked to the brim with talent? Which position scares the hell […]

Miami Dolphins legend and Ring Of Honor member, Richmond Webb, joins Perfectville this week. During the Outside/In segment, Richmond discusses the differences in today’s game versus when he played and why it might be harder for today’s players to play the game, than his generation. He also gives us his thoughts on current Dolphins players Laremy […]

Sam and Chris travel back to Perfectville and discuss the recently released, preseason schedule and what it might indicate for the regular season, Miami’s new quarterback, Dion Jordan’s new team and more. SB Nation’s Brett Kollmann joins us on our new segment Outside/In, to discuss his thoughts on The Dolphins franchise as a whole, as […]

Sam and Chris say goodbye to Travis Wingfield and Kevin Dern, as both depart www.WelcomeToPerfectville.com for what they believe to be “greener pastures”. But even as Write Travis Write, Ronin’s Rambling’s and The Phinalysis Podcast are now officially CANCELED, The flagship show of “Perfectville” remains., as do the founding fathers, Sam and Chris. The Tag […]

After Travis Wingfield’s amazing article, Making A Franchise Quarterback, Ryan Tannehill is once again, the hot topic for Miami Dolfans everywhere. Going in to his sixth year as the starter, what are realistic expectations for Ryan? Is he a “Franchise” quarterback in the eyes of Chris and Sam? Or is he a super game manager, or […]

Chapter One: Rock Bottom – “I don’t see a way that Ryan Tannehill makes it back for Miami. I just don’t. He looks totally punch-drunk. Fatefully, I think it’s over.” These were the words of highly regarded Dolphins fan, insider and contributor Simon Clancy (@SiClancy) on October 9. The Miami players, losers of four of […]

Sam and Chris return to Perfectville to discuss the new league year and the #NewMiami that has occurred. From re-signing their own free agents like Kenny Stills, extending contracts of current stars such as Reshad Jones, and even solidifying their defensive front seven with Lawrence Timmons and a trade for William Hayes, the Dolphins are […]

The boys are back in town! The Town of Perfectville, that is. And they are here to present the final round of Phinzees for the 2016-2017 season! Categories such as The Penny Saver Value Phinzee, Defensive Player Of The Year Phinzee, Offensive Player Of The Year Phinzee, and of course, The Dallas Thomas Lifetime Achievement Phinzee! Plus, […]

As the Patriots prepare the streets of Boston for a fifth Super Bowl parade, the three step-children of the AFC East continue to wonder – when will it end? Two decades of chasing a divisional silver medal should be nearing its triumphed conclusion. Instead, the 39 year old quarterback and curmudgeon coach that consistently turns […]

It is the off season. Which means it is time to figure out how to Make Miami Great Again. And we start by examining the ENTIRE Dolphins roster and making snap judgments on whether we should keep them or cut them for the 2017 campaign. This does not take into account their salaries, free agency […]

Miami went into Baltimore seeking their seventh win a row, and left there still having only seven wins total, as the Ravens flocked the Dolphins up, 38-6. Defensively, Miami was terrible. Offensively, Miami was terrible. Special teams, however…was terrible. So what went wrong? Did anything go right? And does DeVante Parker have a second career […]

  The Dolphins trailed the Patriots by two touchdowns late in the third quarter in a late October Thursday night affair in Foxboro. The Miami defense forced an incomplete pass on third down and got off the field. Cameron Wake, did not. As he lie there on his stomach at mid-field, you wouldn’t know he […]

The playoffs start NOW, as Miami steamrolls into Baltimore to take on the third seeded, and AFC North Division leading, Ravens. Can Miami take out a playoff contender while in a hostile environment? Will Ryan Tannehill or Jay Ajayi be able to crack the seemingly, unsolvable code, that is The Ravens defense? And who, among […]

The Miami Dolphins won their sixth straight game and are now the sixth seed in the AFC Playoff standings! It wasn’t easy, however, as Colin Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers put up a valiant effort before succumbing to defeat, two yards short of the game tying touchdown by Kaepernick. Who stepped up to thwart […]

Another week, another Miami Dolphins win. Five in a row now for the boys from South Beach, and this one was an ugly, wet mess until about five minutes left in the fourth quarter. Ryan Tannehill, Jarvis Landry and DeVante Parker stepped up (finally!) and sent the West Coast Dol-Fans who braved the Los Angeles […]

  The Dolphins combined their west coast road trip, so we combined our west coast podcasts! A JUMBO (non-Elliot version) edition of Perfectville, as we discuss the four game winning streak that continued in San Diego, as well as preview the upcoming game against the St. Louis Los Angeles Rams. Can Miami survive a loss to their […]

When Sam asked me to head up the blog portion of Perfectville, he didn’t do it with the expectation that I would give you generic takes that could be covered by anyone with access to a highlight reel. Regardless, I still find it necessary to get the obvious out of the way. The primary keys […]

The Dolphins win AGAIN and have gotten themselves back to a .500 record at 4-4. Even better, they have gotten themselves back into a legitimate conversation for the playoffs! A 27-23 victory that saw a rushing TD, a passing TD, a kickoff return for a TD, two strip sacks by Cam Wake, and even a […]

The boys are back and well rested after following The Miami Dolphins’ lead, and taking some time off. Sam and Chris tackle the big rivalry game as Miami take son the stinkin’ New York Jets, at home, inside of Hard Rock Stadium. A win against New York, coupled with a Buffalo Bills loss to Seattle […]

Back in August, I wrote positional previews for the entire 2016 Miami Dolphins roster. Before even seeing him dress in aqua and orange, this was what I had to say about MarQueis Gray in the “Quarterbacks and Tight Ends Preview.” “Gray spent the end of last season on Buffalo’s injured reserved and signed with the […]

Most Englishmen that go into sport choose football. But it wasn’t until he came across the pond that Jay Ajayi found himself immersed in America’s rendition of the game. Before stealing national headlines by joining the company of O.J. Simpson, Earl Campbell and Ricky Williams as the only players to rush for 200 yards in […]

The boys are back after another bad loss to the Pittsburgh Steele…wait, what? They won? Not only that, but they DOMINATED?!?! How did this happen? Chris and Sam break down what went right against a very good Steelers team this past Sunday. Plus, some breaking news that promises to bring the entire fan base down. […]

Chris and Sam discuss the abysmal loss to the Titans, Adam Gase’s firing spree and the latest trade rumors swirling around Ryan Tannehill. Plus, we look ahead to this weekend’s game against The Steelers. Does Miami even have a shot at winning this game, given the amount of injuries on defense and Pittsburgh’s potent offense? […]

Travis Wingfield joins Sam once again to review the Thursday Night Debacle against Cincinnati. Is Adam Gase in over his head? Is Tannehill in danger of being traded for Jay Cutler? Who are the worst players ever? And can Miami salvage this season, or is it time to focus on the draft? Plus, a second […]

Week Four is upon us and Travis Wingfield is filling in for Chris Cullen as we navigate the murky waters of our win against Cleveland, as well as what Miami needs to do to escape Ohio 2-2. Should Ja’Wuan James continue to start? Is Kenyan Drake our best option at running back? And which wide […]

Sam and Chris to review what went wrong up in Foxboro. An overwhelmed defense, a slow starting offense and the legend of Jimmy Garoppolo combined to drop 31 point quickly on our beloved fins. If not for the Herculean effort of Ryan Tannehill, the talent of Jarvis Landry and DeVante Parker, and most importantly, Kiko […]

  The boys are back and licking their wounds after a painful week one loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Find out what Sam and Chris thought about the last minute collapse by the defense, what specific plays changed the outcome of the game and of course, who the worst players ever are. We also say […]

The regular season is here! Sam and Chris preview Miami’s first game against The Seattle Seahawks. The ‘Hawks are virtually unstoppable in their home stadium with Russell Wilson under center. 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 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 […]

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 […]
