THIS SEASON HAS SUNK

With the Fins extending their losing streak to 4, last week’s installment, The Season is Sinking, is appropriately followed by This Season Has Sunk.  Why?  At 3-4, the Fins would likely have to go 7-2 the rest of the way to have a meaningful shot at the playoffs.  Does anyone see that happening fresh off [...]

THE SEASON IS SINKING

Fresh off the bye week the Miami Dolphins resumed where they left off by extending their losing streak to 3 games.  A season that started 3-0 has now sunk to 3-3 and with a visit to New England next Sunday, these Dolphins may well extend their losing streak to 4.  This feel-good season is no [...]

AN UPHILL BATTLE

Fresh off a Monday Night crushing by the New Orleans Saints, the Miami Dolphins had an uphill battle against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, a battle which they lost 26-23 when rookie placekicker Caleb Sturgis’ 57-yard field goal attempt was a little off target.  It was a disappointing result for the rookie who had not [...]

EXPOSED

The Fins and their 3-0 start got exposed on Monday Night Football in New Orleans.  The Saints converted 2 Ryan Tannehill mistakes into a 24-10 halftime lead and never looked back.  The first mistake was a fumble, a bad habit Tannehill has seemed to pick up, although this one came after a run rather than in [...]

SOARING AT 3-0

In the order of nature, Dolphins swim and Falcons fly.  But this Sunday it was the Dolphins who were soaring as they downed the Falcons 27-23.  The game winner was a Ryan Tannehill 1-yard pass to rookie tight end Dion Sims with 00:38 remaining on the clock.  Seconds later Jimmy Wilson intercepted a Matt Ryan pass [...]

FINS SURVIVE INDY 500

The Miami Dolphins are 2-0 after defeating the Indianapolis Colts 24-20.  Following their two consecutive road victories to start the 2013 Season they will return for their home opener against the Atlanta Falcons next Sunday.  It took a great second half performance for the Fins to survive the “Indy 500” as the Fins surrendered just [...]

GOOD ENOUGH FOR STARTERS

The 2013 Miami Dolphins opened their regular season in Cleveland with a performance that can best be described as good enough for starters.  It was good enough for an opening day 23-10 win that would place them in a first place tie with the Patriots (who had a surprisingly difficult time beating the Bills) and [...]

THIS ONE STUNK ALL THE WAY TO YOSEMITE

What should have been a treat watching the Fins on NBC playing in the annual Hall of Fame Game in Canton from Yosemite after a day of hiking, was anything but a treat given the way the Fins looked.  Despite an off-season of hoped-for significant roster changes, it looked like more of the same that [...]

WILL BIG MOVES TRANSLATE TO A BIG MOVE

Following an offseason of big moves, the question that remains is will those big moves translate to a big move for a team that has been a second tier team for too long.  The answer to that question will likely determine the fate of GM Jeff Ireland, who would seem to be one losing season [...]
