HENNE AND THIGPEN FAIL AUDITION FOR 2011 BACKUP QB JOB AS FINS LOSE TO PATS

After their second consecutive 7-9 finish thanks to a season-ending loss to the Patriots, Dolfans will have to wait to see if the off-season brings any hope that 2011 will be any better.   One position where the team needs significant improvement is QB.  On Sunday Chad Henne finished a rather disappointing season by getting benched [...]

FINS’ MOWED DOWN BY THE LOWLY TEAM FROM MOTOWN

   Having lost to a 3-10 Bills team last week the Fins got mowed down by a 4-10 this week.  Although neither loss should come as a surprise to Dolfans , the 1-7 home record is quite telling.  Three years ago when Czarcells and Co. came into town Dolfans knew the team was in a rebuilding [...]

FINS’ PLAYOFF HOPES BUFFALOED

In a game between two teams going nowhere, the Fins saw their slim playoff hopes Buffaloed, losing to the Bills 17-14.  It was yet another dismal performance by the offense.  Quite fittingly, the game ended when the Fins’ (again) shot themselves in the foot after they got the ball at their own 20 with 00:41 [...]

FINS WIN BEHIND THEIR MVP (Most Valuable Punter)

Thanks to a most impressive performance by Punter Brandon Fields the Fins won at the New Meadowlands Stadium where the only thing uglier than the weather was the miserable performance by QB Chad Henne and the Fins’ offense.  The hero of the day, Fields punted 10 times, consistently taking the Fins’ out of a hole [...]

IT’S TIME TO FUMIGATE

 The Fins lost at home again on Sunday, and it surely must be time to fumigate.  Thanks to 3 interceptions, the 6-6 Fins stunk up the stadium and lost to the Browns 13-10 on a last second gift field goal.  The turnover bug has become such an epidemic at Sun Life Stadium, it’s got to [...]

FINS LONG ON THE ROAD

A week after being shut out at home, the Fins went long on the road, scoring touchdowns from 29, 45 and 57 yards out to beat the Raiders, while upping their road record to an impressive 5-1.  Too bad they are a miserable 1-4 at home, thus leaving them 2 games and a tie-breaker behind [...]

THIS AIN’T GOLF SO WHY SHOULD THEY PLAY 18?

With the Dolphins off until next Sunday, and the injuries continuing to mount, it seemed a good time to address the question: This ain’t golf so why should they play 18?  No, not talking about holes, talking about games.  You see, the NFL owners’ are angling to extend the regular season from 16 to 18 [...]

UNBEARABLE

The Fins’ performance on Thursday Night Football can be best described as unbearable.  Not only did Da Bears shut out the Fins, but the game was as lopsided of a contest as one could imagine.  It does not matter whether you talk about the score (16-0), time of possession (37:51 to 22:09), first downs (19 [...]

TYLER FINISHES OFF THE TITANS

In a game in which 5 QBs lined up behind center and 6 players actually threw a pass, it took a combination of the reemergence of the Wildcat formation followed strongly by emergency QB Tyler Thigpen to finish off the Titans, 29-17.  With that unusual scenario, the Fins managed their first home win of the [...]

THE PROGRESS STOPPER

Wasn’t it only 6 months ago that Tony Sparano showed future Ring of Honor Member Jason Taylor the door because he was a progress stopper?  Surely you remember the Company line that keeping Jason Taylor around would thwart the progress of younger players needing to develop. Just halfway into the season the very same man [...]
