LET THE OFF-SEASON MOVES BE-GINN WITH TED

In the wake of the Fins’ disappointing 7-9 finish, Dolfans should expect a number of off-season moves that will reshape the roster for 2010. And may those off-season moves be-Ginn with Ted. As deserving as Ted Ginn is of criticism, he does not deserve to be the whipping boy for the entire 2009 season. Injuries [...]

A PAINFUL REVERSAL OF FORTUNE

The Miami Dolphins not only lost their season finale 30-24 to the Pittsburgh Steelers, thus ending the season 7-9, but the game also proved to be a painful reversal of the good fortune of last season. Rather than repeating as Division Champs, the painful reversal of fortune saw both Chad Henne and Pat White leave [...]

DOLPHINS PLAYING FOR NEXT YEAR

With the loss to the Texans, a franchise the Fins have never beaten, the Fins have been relegated to playing for next year. Oh sure, there is a scenario that the Dolphins could still make the playoffs, but that scenario is too far-fetched to give it any serious consideration. Make no mistake about it; despite [...]

TENNESSEE “TITANS” THE NOOSE ON THE FINS’ PLAYOFF HOPES

With the help of Chad Henne’s third interception of the day and a blatantly bad call by an official, Tennessee all but ended the Fins’ playoff hopes with an overtime win, 27-24. Following that interception, the Titans took over at the Miami 27-yard line needing only a field goal to win. But the Titan who [...]

FINS HANGING ON TO THEIR PLAYOFF DREAMS

The Miami Dolphins started strong against the Jaguars taking a 14-0 lead early in the second quarter and then had to hang on to keep their playoff dreams alive. A sterling defensive effort overcame 3 turnovers that helped Jacksonville remain in the game until they failed to convert a 4th and 2 inside the 2-minute [...]

FINS BEAT THE BRADY BUNCH

The 5-6 Dolphins found themselves being badly beaten on both sides of the ball and down 14-0 a mere four seconds into the second quarter as fear swept through the half of the fans in the stands not wearing Patriot colors, all collectively dreading just how much worse things could get for their Fins. But [...]

DOLPHINS’ SEASON BUFFALOED

A victory against the Bills on Sunday would have had the Fins praying for the Saints to beat the Patriots on Monday Night Football to set up a fight for first place next Sunday when the Fins host the Patriots at the stadium best known as Joe Robbie Stadium. But instead, the Fins’ season was [...]

RICKY’S GOT FINS’ BACK

It was only a few years ago when Ricky Williams turned his back on the Fins, angering both Dolphins and Dolfans alike. But all is forgotten now as Ricky not only got the Fins back to .500, but he also showed that he’s got their back. With Ronnie Brown on injured reserve, the Fins needed [...]

BARE SURVIVAL

A desperate Miami Dolphins team got a “W” on Sunday, barely surviving the Tampa Bay Bucs, a team that was coming off its only win of the season just last week. At 4-5, the win represents nothing more than bare survival as the Fins’ playoff chances are about as marginal as Ted Ginn’s talent as [...]

GINN TURNS ON THE JETS

Following a tough week in which he faced non-stop criticism as being a first round bust, Ted Ginn turned on the jets and ran his way into the record books by returning two kickoffs for touchdowns. Ginn literally and figuratively turned on the Jets in leading the Fins to a wild and crazy 30-25 win [...]
