    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 […]

    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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

The 2016 Dolphins were many things. Between the heart-thumping finishes, exceeded expectations, and setting a new organizational precedence, if nothing else, this team was a sheer pleasure to watch. With an impressive resolve, the Dolphins overcame a multitude of adverse situations to win double digit games and secure a post-season berth for the first time […]

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 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 […]

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 […]

Reshad Jones is officially gone for the season, LeSean McCoy left Buffalo’s practice with a hamstring issue and the intense rivalry between the Miami Dolphins and Buffalo Bills heats up, as they prepare for battle this Sunday! Sam and Chris give their thoughts on who they they will win and why. Plus, some actual news […]

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 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
