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 […]

Dolphins lose to Jets in disgusting fashion 37-24

Losing is disgusting. Losing to the 4-12 Jets is disturbing. After leading 17-14, the Dolphins seemed primed for a winning season, a first under head coach Philbin. Lamar provided an early exclamation point with a 97 yard run after the Dolphins stuffed the Jets at the 2 as they went for a first down. The […]

Dolphins win 37-35 over the Vikings in thrilling fashion

Nothing about the Dolphins eight victories have been orthodox. On a day when the coaching change winds have been swirling among media circles, all eyes were on the Dolphins down 17-7 at the half.  Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater showed why he was chosen in the first round despite a poor workout for NFL teams. Roaring […]

DOLPHINS VIKINGS

Dolphins versus Vikings pregame preview

Who are these Minnesota Vikings? Coached by Mike Zimmer, this is a 6-8 blue collar, lunchpail toting, rookie quarterback throwing team. Minus the running game featuring Adrian Peterson, the Vikings will attempt to out rush the Miami Dolphins with a little known stable of backs in Matt Asiata and well-known, but at bust status Ben Tate. […]

Fellow Dolfans, we’ve had a tumulteous season and are now bracing ourselves for two very pivotal contests at home.  Who better to point out the good, bad, and ugly than one of the fellow fans and bloggers on Blogtalk Radio every Tuesday at 8PM than Paul L. Picken Jr. Paul was gracious enough to share […]

If the Dolphins expect big results, it is time for change

Today the Dolphins answered everyone’s questions about the state of the team by losing in a laugher 41-13 to the rival Patriots. We saw how one game could become a microcosm for the entire season: a model of inconsistency. The Dolphins are now 7-7 after going on a three game winning streak from late October through […]
