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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 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 […]
