Jason Ended Their Season

Even a horrendous 6-win season can have a sweet ending when the Dolphins knock the Jets out of the playoffs, as they did at home on Sunday with a 19-17 victory.   And this one was extra special as fan favorite Jason Taylor, playing in the last game of his stellar 15-year career, had a huge [...]

MOORE IS LESS

After playing an excellent first half in which the defense shut the door on Tom Brady and Company en route to a 17-0 halftime score, offensive failures helped turn the momentum and enabled the Brady Bunch to steamroll over the Fins by soring 27 unanswered second-half points.  The offensive failures were largely that of QB [...]

REGGIE DROPS BALL, THEN DROPS BILLS

The Bills turned a Reggie Bush fumble into a 7-0 first quarter lead.  But it’s how you finish that really counts and Reggie Bush then went on a tear and rushed for a career high 203 yards en route to his third consecutive 100-yard games as the Fins went on to defeat the Bills on a snowy [...]

OFFENSIVE

If there is one thing you can say about the Fins’ 26-10 loss to the Eagles it is that it was an offensive loss.  While the defense played well enough to win, the performance by the offense was plainly offensive.  The only touchdown the Fins scored all day came after a blocked punt by Jimmy [...]

AWWWRIGHT MIAMI!!!

On a day reserved for the induction of Jim Mandich, the Mad Dog, in the Miami Dolphins’ Ring of Honor, the Fins played like it was the good old days, soundly defeating the Oakland Raiders, 34-14.  And it really wasn’t that close as the Fins had a 34-0 lead by the end of the third [...]

COWBOYS HAD A LOT OF REASONS TO BE THANKFUL

The Cowboys sure had a lot of reasons to be thankful this Thanksgiving as they beat the Fins 20-17 thanks to a last second field goal.  The number one thing they had to be thankful for was that Tony Sparano was still the Fins’ head coach, for another coach would not have taken the gamble that [...]

OPPOSITE DIRECTIONS

The Dolphins-Bills game was certainly about two teams headed in opposite directions.  The Bills started this season strong, but have since been fading (going from 4-1 to 5-5).  The Fins, of course, started 0-7, but have now won 3 straight after thrashing the Bills.  The Fins scored touchdowns on their first 3 possessions en route [...]

A HOME WIN!

Last week the Fins picked up their first win of the season and this week they not only came back with another win, but this time it was a home win.  And this home win was just their second in the last year.  Too bad there were 363 days in between their victories over the Titans on [...]

A HAPPY ENDING

One thing the Fins have not known for a long time is a happy ending.  Losers of 10 straight dating back to last December, the Fins have had some very unhappy endings, like the multiple times they gave away fourth quarter leads this season.  The story was different on Sunday when the Fins surrendered an [...]

SparaNoJobSecurity

Well, here we go again, 0-7 . . . and counting down to next April.  One thing is for sure, Head Coach Tony SparaNoJobSecurity will not be along for the entire ride, his already sealed fate grows closer with each passing loss.  At the Meadowlands on Sunday the Fins may have gone down for the [...]
