Could the Dolphins plan of the future include Tannehill?

As the Miami Dolphins prepare to take on the Cincinnati Bengals on the road, words have surfaced from Dolfan’s favorite NFL Insider, Jason La Canfora. La Canfora compares Blake Bortles to Ryan Tannehill and then goes onto say that his days in Miami as the starter could come to an end before November and that […]

Dolphins barely best Browns 30-24 in overtime

The Miami Dolphins opened their home schedule with by christening of newly renovated Hard Rock Stadium with a hard fought win.   The stadium formerly known by many other names put on a show of football follies (3 turnovers for Miami, 3 fumbles for Cleveland) as the Dolphins and Browns played a game of chicken […]

Dolphins downed by Patriots 31-24

If you ever wanted to see the Dolphins answer the critics, yesterday was it. Except for a horrendous first half by the Dolphins offense where until the eighth possession they drove at halftime for a field goal. The Dolphins defense surrendered yards and points to Garoppolo who looked like Tom Brady leading the Patriots down […]

Owner Stephen Ross publicly backs his protesting players

Despite yesterday’s loss to the Seattle Seahawks 12-10, the headlines that are making rounds are not of the Dolphins’ close but no cigar win, but of four Dolphins players not standing during the National Anthem in Seattle. The headlines today have put Dolphins fans and football fans in a frenzy over four players on the […]

Dolphins first victory spoiled 12-10 versus Seahawks

How’s that for an opening week game? A Seattle defense that was supposed to be the best in the NFL lived up to its billing holding the Dolphins to three first downs on third down and just 12 points. Ryan Tannehill who went 16/29 and 186 yards couldn’t muster enough offense from his offensive unit to […]

Dolphins cut-down to the 53 tracker

The Miami Dolphins concluded their preseason with a loss to the Titans 21-10, but a 2-2 preseason record under new head coach Adam Gase seems like this team is pushing for a much better record in 2016-17.  Who will be added and subtracted from this team in the coming week is anyone’s guess! Will the […]


Dolphins win 27-10 over Giants in Gase’s preseason debut

Call it what you will, the Miami Dolphins limited roster depth out-worked the NY Giants. However, it is the starters that did play that got Dolphins Twitter fired up right away and not in a good way. #FireGase started to become the mantra in his first game as a head coach and a game that doesn’t […]

of the Miami Dolphins talks to members of the press concerning first round draft pick Laremy Tunsil at their training faciility on April 29, 2016 in Davie, Florida.

Coach Gase is bringing a different mentality to the Dolphins

You can look up and down the Dolphins sidelines during training camp one common denominator is present, credibility. Adam Gase has a certain credibility with folks he has either met, coached, or learned from. Up and down the sidelines, take a stroll, the Dolphins first year head coach has brought in Peyton Manning, John Lynch, […]

Former Dolphin tackle could soon retire

Sometimes it’s a snap, twist, and a grunt. The sound that former Dolphins tackle Jake Long made prior to week one back in 2012 during practice indoors.  The now former Dolphin has seen stints in St. Louis, Atlanta, and now in Baltimore where the last stop is left to the football gods. According to multiple […]

Can the Dolphins o-line dominate the trenches?

The Miami Dolphins are one step away from reclaiming their bragging rights to the AFC East.  What separates them from stellar play year in and year out is their skill positions in the trenches. Gone is head coach Joe Philbin who claimed to be an offensive line coach and genius with game plans. Gone is […]

Reshad Jones, back in Miami and ready to roll!

Reshad Jones returned to the practice field just in time for mini-camp and 76,000 dollars whole in his bank account. While some pundits intimated that Jones would be out possibly through training camp, Jone returned in great shape and ready to give a huge lift to the Miami Dolphins defense. Said Jones upon returning: “I’m here […]


Can Jay Ajayi carry the load for the Dolphins?

Gone is Lamar Miller to the greenest of pastures in Houston. Taking on the role of Dolphins presumed running back is unproven, and seldom used until week 11, running back Jay Ajayi. Ajayi hails from England, but better yet brings his tea and crumpets to Miami by way of  a spread offense at Boise State […]

Are the Dolphins headed for divorce with Reshad Jones?

The Miami Dolphins offseason continues to head at a rapid pace with minicamp around the corner and no sign of their safety Reshad Jones. As it stands currently, with the recent report in ProFootball Talk, Jones is poised to sit out the entire season if his deal, with two years remaining cannot be reworked. Jones […]

Did the Dolphins sell their soul by drafting Tunsil?

Last Thursday, the Miami Dolphins attached themselves to controversy by drafting tackle Laremy Tunsil out of Ole Miss. Irregardless of the draft pick and the fall from the sky drop from the 3rd pick to thirteenth, Tunsil became available after his Twitter account was hacked. Since this is a family blog, I’ll spare the details […]


Dolphins team media coverage is a bust for fans

Today, I alluded on Twitter, something troubling that has brewing and perhaps boiling over in the hearts of Dolfans who loved and counted on the Finsiders.  Lately, all the Dolphins app does is play short 2 minute and 16 seconds of a tiny interview with a player or a weird driving segment with Mike Pouncey […]
