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 Second part of our three part awards show, The Phinzees, is here! Sam, Kevin, Chris and Travis (along with his pants-less cat), return to present four more HUGE Phinzee awards to their respective winners! Categories include The You Look Phinsational Phinzee (Best Uniform Combination), The Phinjury Report (Most Impactful Injury), The Adam Sandler “You Blew It!” […]

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 […]

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 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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) […]

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 […]

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. […]

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 […]

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 […]
