Dolphins hope to lure more talent to Miami

After making a splash larger than Flipper in Miami, the Dolphins have landed Ndamukong Suh to anchor the defense and restore order to an embattled defensive line. Gone are the mainstays from the Ireland era such as Randy Starks, Dannell Ellerbe, and Jared Odrick. While the Dolphins complimentary moves after signing Suh were not viewed […]

An interview with Jeff Risdon of DetroitLionsDraft.com

We had an incredible opportunity to speak with Jeff Risdon of DetroitLionsDraft.com. Jeff penned the “Open Letter to Dolphins Fans” and that intrigued us here at PhinsPhocus! Jeff was kind enough to share with us about Suh’s incredible work ethic to play at a high level in the NFL, why Suh didn’t return to Detroit, and […]

No Suh signing quite yet in Miami and that’s good news

“The waiting is the hardest part” wrote Tom Petty in his song:”The Waiting.” Right now, the Miami Dolphins fan base and the rest of the NFL is waiting for the rumored 60 million dollars plus in guaranteed money and a total value of 114 million to commence. Fans are giddy about the potential signing, but they are […]

Dolphins reportedly will land free agent Ndamukong Suh

Just yesterday, the Miami Dolphins fans got an early holiday present with the very large and in charge presence of free agent Defensive Tackle Ndamukong Suh. As reported by Chris Mortensen of ESPN, Suh will (reportedly) accept the Dolphins offer of $114 million for 6 years and $60 million guaranteed. The Dolphins yesterday got better […]

Does Suh even make sense in Miami?

Just this week, Dolphins fans all over the universe learned of the possibility of Ndamukong Suh testing the waters of free agency and the Dolphins receptive and poised to possibly sign him. In fact, it was the very man-Mark Dominic, an analyst for ESPN and GM Dennis Hickey’s former boss that so eloquently put it […]

Dolphins release wide receiver Brian Hartline

Today should be a disappointing day for Dolfans.  Upon learning the news of the release of Brian Hartline, one can’t help but remember the nervousness surrounding the re-signing of the talented, efficient, and speedy wide out in 2013. How the Dolphin faithful had expectations for him to flourish alongside newly minted receiver Mike Wallace in […]

Can the Dolphins afford to sign their own free agents?

The Miami Dolphins finished the season with an average record of 8-8 after a lackluster finale.  We know that quarterback Ryan Tannehill has flourished in the Bill Lazor offensive scheme.  On the defensive side of the ball, we know the impact that having help for Cameron Wake to rush the quarterback is critical and Jared […]

Three offseason questions for the Dolphins

After three seasons under the Joe Philbin era, the Miami Dolphins fans have grown wildly impatient with just being average.  Heading into 2015, both Ryan Tannehill and head coach Joe Philbin have shown that they can win with the best players on paper and lose with the best players money can buy. At this time, […]

Talking Dolphins with Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post

This week, we had a chance to chat Miami Dolphins with the Palm Beach Post’s Andrew Abramson.  Andrew was kind enough to share his insights about quarterback Ryan Tannehill, his free agency predictions, Mike Wallace’s fallout in the final game, and finally Joe Philbin’s future.  We caught up with Andrew just as the Mike Tannenbaum […]

Dolphins entering a precarious period at wide receiver

When Joe Philbin took over as head coach of the Miami Dolphins in 2012, wide receiver was not an issue until he started to jettison some important parts of the offense. Gone was wide receiver Brandon Marshall at the start of free agency with a surprising trade. The following year, the Dolphins upgraded with Mike […]

Don Shula said what?

Maybe being 85 years of age hasn’t softened the old ball coach.  Don Shula is as legendary as any other coach in his profession, clearly had a bone to pick with the Miami Dolphins rival New England Patriots. Specifically, Shula was asked about what he thought about the Patriots coach and his response was a […]

Miami Dolphins clearly in the wrong organizationally

There is something that stinks quite profoundly in South Florida.  Specifically, the stench is coming from atop the building in Davie’s executive offices.  Something clearly is amiss in South Florida. After the Dolphins (not so quietly) announced that Mike Tannenbaum would be named executive VP of Football Operations, with the ink barely dry, someone tapped Stephen […]

Dolphins bring aboard Mike Tannenbaum to run football ops

In a startling, yet necessary move, the Miami Dolphins broke their silence with the hiring of former GM of the New York Jets, Mike Tannenbaum as VP of football operations.  Tannenbaum, 45, has been with Stephen Ross nearly a year as a consultant on the business side of the Dolphins through the use of performance […]

What offseason changes are in store for the Dolphins?

The Miami Dolphins had an abysmal finish and will need to re-configure their defensive personnel, special teams approach, and offensive play in the red zone.  Surely, changes, must be made in order to make a playoff run in 2015. First, with rumors swirling around about a potential coaching opening in Philadelphia, it’s highly possible that […]

D stands for dysfunction in Miami

There are several ways to go about this column, but the best way is to lay it all out there. The Miami Dolphins finished the season 8-8 for the second straight season. As a result of this mediocrity, owner Stephen Ross decided one week ago to hand a “Christmas present” to the media by honoring […]
