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 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 […]

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? […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
