DOLFEASANCE

Sunday’s loss to the lowly New York Jets who, even with their season-ending win, finished safely in the basement of the AFC East was so bad that it probably requires the coining of a new word to adequately describe the Fins’ ineptitude.  In this writer’s opinion, the Fins’ loss to the Jets was a clear [...]

FINS WIN THE MEANINGLESS BOWL

In a game pitting two teams going nowhere, the Fins emerged victorious over the Vikings when a blocked punt with 41 seconds remaining in the game resulted in a game-winning safety.  It was an exciting end to a game that gave the Fins a chance at a winning record this season, which will be decided [...]

PATRIOTS REIGN, FINS SEARCH

A season of hope that began in September with a glorious win over the New England Patriots saw all hope disappear in December thanks to a crushing 41-13 loss to those same Patriots.  Unlike the game last September, there would be no thrilling comeback in the second half as the Patriots manhandled the Fins in [...]

THE RAVENS’ CURSE

The Dolphins hosted the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday in a game that was much akin to a playoff game.  Both teams came in at 7-5 and the winner would have the inside track to the playoffs while the loser would be all but eliminated from playoff contention.  Because so much was riding on this game [...]

UNIMPRESSIVE BUT STILL ALIVE

The Dolphins survived a trip to the Meadowlands on Monday Night Football, beating the Jets 16-13 thanks to a field goal with 1:57 left in the game and a defense that finally was able to seal the win in crunch time.  Playing a 2-9 team, the Fins trailed most of the night, scoring 10 of [...]

OUTMANNED IN DENVER

The Miami Dolphins had a 21-17 halftime lead in Denver only to see the game slip away as the Broncos outscored the Fins 22-8 in the fourth quarter.  And watching the second half one had the sick feeling that the Fins were on a ship which had a great big hole ripped into its hull [...]

BACK ON TRACK

The Fins’ 2014 season is back on track thanks to an impressive 22-9 victory over the Buffalo Bills on Thursday Night Football in a match-up of two 5-4 teams both fighting to keep their season alive.  In the end, it was the Dolphins who put their playoff chances back on track. Although game balls are [...]

MOWED DOWN IN MOTOWN

The euphoria of last week seems so far removed now that the Fins’ 3-game winning streak was ended in dramatic fashion by the Detroit Lions who scored the game winning touchdown with 29 seconds left on the game clock.  Although the final score was 20-16, there was much about this game that didn’t seem that [...]

IMPRESSIVE

Last week the Fins beat the Jaguars in a very unimpressive fashion, but this week was an entirely different story as the Fins dominated in every facet of the game, defeating the San Diego Charges 37-0.  And the game may not have been that close.  It was, in a word, impressive. It would be a [...]

UNIMPRESSIVE

For the first time this season, the Miami Dolphins managed to win two games in a row.  However, their 27-13 win against the now 1-7 Jacksonville Jaguars could only be described as unimpressive. Up and down QB Ryan Tannehill led the Fins to a total of 56 yards of offense in the first half (52 [...]
