FINS WIN INCONSISTENT BOWL

The Fins traveled to Chicago this week to play the bears in a game pitting two of the more inconsistent teams in the NFL.  Da Bears came into the game 3-3, having not won at home.  The Fins came into the game 2-3, having not won two in a row.  So the natural question before [...]

LONGING FOR 60 MINUTES

Just finished watching 60 Minutes with Morley Safer.  Just one time it would be nice to watch 60 minutes with Ryan Tannehill. Unfortunately, he only seems capable of playing 30 minutes per week.  In 5 games this season, Ryan Tannehill has yet to play at a truly professional level for 60 minutes in any one [...]

TANNEHILL’S FOG LIFTED IN LONDON

It has been as though Ryan Tannehill was playing in a fog this season, but when he took the field against the Raiders in London, that fog lifted and the skies were suddenly clear.  Following a week in which the rift between him and Coach Philbin was widely reported, Tannehill put together his best game [...]

FINS GOING DOWNHILL FAST WITH TANNEHILL

When an NFL team has a hundred yard rusher in a game and wins the turnover battle, victory usually follows.  This is especially so when the rusher averages 7.2 yards per carry.  Not so with the Miami Dolphins this week who fell to 1-2 despite not turning the ball over a single time and getting [...]

OH NO, NOT AGAIN!

For the second time in a row, the Dolphins have followed an impressive win against the Patriots with a disheartening loss against the Bills.  Last December’s loss to the Bills cost the Fins an opportunity to earn a playoff berth.  On Sunday, the loss cost the Fins first place in the AFC East.  With the [...]

A TALE OF TWO HALVES

The Dolphins’ season opening game against the Patriots was truly a tale of two halves.  In the first half the Fins committed 3 turnovers which resulted in them heading into the locker room with a 20-10 deficit.  But the second half was a totally different story as the Fins’ defense shut out Tom Brady & Company while [...]

MEANINGFUL ONLY TO THE MARGINAL

Rumor has it that the Dolphins hosted the St. Louis Rams on Thursday night, but you could not tell that either by the identity of the players on the field or by the 70,000 empty seats.  For a moment it looked like the Marlins were back playing at Sun Life Stadium, except that there were [...]

A MIXED BAG

The third preseason game is traditionally the most telling in that it is the game in which the starters see the most action.  It is viewed as the final tune-up before the regular season starts.  In that sense it was truly a mixed bag. First, the good.  The defense did a fine job holding Tony [...]

FINS REMAIN A WORK IN PROGRESS

Last week Ryan Tannehill and the first team offense (minus some receivers) were perfect in their lone drive before giving way to the backups.  That resulted in a bunch of Lazor-mania among Dolfans.  This week, the results were not quite as good for Ryan Tannehill as he reverted to some old ways.  He did not get [...]

5 MINUTES OF “LAZOR” MANIA

With the hiring of Bill Lazor as the Fins’ offensive coordinator this off-season, Dolfans have been hoping against hope that last season’s sadly anemic offensive scheme would become a thing of the past.  Without doubt, last season’s anemic offensive scheme played a big role in the team’s dismal offensive output.  This was never more evident [...]
