4-4 IS NOTHING TO BE “RAVEN” ABOUT

With a poor performance in Baltimore the Fins reached the midpoint of the season at 4-4, a record that is surely nothing to be Raven about.  It was an inopportune time for the home field advantage to finally rear its head this season in which the road team had prevailed in each of the Fins’ [...]

ROAD WARRIORS

Another Sunday away gave the Fins another chance to prove themselves to be road warriors . . . and prove it they did.  For the fourth time in as many tries this season the Fins won on the road, this time beating the Bengals 22-14 in a come from behind effort that saw the defense [...]

AIN’T NO SUNSHINE AT SUN LIFE

Playing under threatening skies on Sunday afternoon, the Fins once again learned that there ain’t no sunshine at Sun Life Stadium, losing to the Pittsburgh Steelers (and the zebras) 23-22, thus keeping intact their imperfect 2010 home record. While the Fins extended their home record to 0-3, they are oddly 3-0 on the road this [...]

CARPENTER NAILS PACKERS IN OVERTIME

Thanks to a 44-yard overtime field goal by Dan Carpenter, the Miami Dolphins ended their 2-game losing streak.  The big kick by Carpenter not only put the nail in the Packers’ coffin, but it was his third long field goal of the day.  Actually, he kicked 4 long field goals because a 43-yard field goal [...]

FINS ARE NOT A SPECIAL TEAM

Football coaches who preach about the importance of special teams can stop preaching; all they have to do is flick on the game film of the Fins’ embarrassing 41-14 loss to the Patriots to make their point for them. This week’s loss, which will likely have the Fins’ brass once again checking the waiver wires, was the [...]

JASON ALLEN LEADS SECOND HALF COLLAPSE

It might seem difficult to chalk up this game to a second-half Fins’ collapse when the Jets opened up a 14-0 lead in the first half, but that’s exactly what happened. The Dolphins managed to right the ship in the first half by scoring the final 10 points, thus enabling them to come out in [...]

FINS SILENCE THE CROWD

The Fins went to the Metrodome on Sunday, often viewed as the loudest stadium in the NFL, but one would not have known it in the final half-minute of the game as the crowd quietly watched the Dolphins run out the clock following a dramatic stop on a 4th and 7 that preserved a 14-10 [...]

THE FINS’ CURE?

During the pre-season of discontent, the Fins’ faithful wondered whether the curative powers of the regular season would be enough to carry the day when the bell rang. In Week 1, the Fins walked away with a win against the Bills, but it remains to be seen whether it was the curative powers of the [...]

2010 DOLPHINS PREVIEW: J.T. MAY HAVE THE LAST LAUGH

With the season upon us, it looks like Fins’ cast-off Jason Taylor may have the last laugh after all is said and done. Although the Czarcells team believed last April that this year’s roster was going to be too strong to waste a spot on J.T., the current roster leaves one with a number of [...]

THE MARSHALL PLAN PUTS THE HEAT ON HENNE

The Dolphins went all out this off-season acquiring superstud receiver Brandon Marshall in what is their version of The Marshall Plan. And as Dolfans eagerly anticipate the 2010 season with the best receiver on the roster in at least 2 decades, it is hoped this season will be a coming out party for Chad Henne, [...]
