FINALLY SOME FIRSTS . . . SWEEEEEET!

Finally, some positive firsts for the Dolphins this season: First win, First first-quarter touchdown, First game without a turnover, First rushing touchdown, First two touchdown game, First three touchdown game, First four touchdown game, First happy locker-room show this season. Finally, the “firsts” are on the credit side of the ledger sheet. If only this [...]

WAIT ‘TIL NEXT YEAR (FOR A WIN

Even a first-half lead against another winless team was not enough to enable the 0-6 Dolphins to emerge with a victory. This is as bad as it gets, or at least as bad as it’s ever gotten in their thirty-nine year history. It may get worse next week when the Rams figure to drop them [...]

DOLPHINS ARE A MINUS

After five games, the Dolphins are a minus in games (-5), a minus in turnovers (-11) and a minus in points (-45). Incredibly, the offense by itself is only a plus 21 in points when they are on the field (having scored 42 and given up 21 via interceptions returned for touchdowns). That means that [...]

PLEASE, NO MORE TOUCHDOWN PASSES

With the Dolphins’ offensive ineptitude, they just can’t afford to spot the other team 7 points, as the Dolphins did for the third time in four [...]

WILL DOLPHINS LEAD THE LEAGUE IN NO-SHOWS?

At this rate, the Dolphins’ only chance to lead the league will be in no-shows. There were a lot of no-shows Sunday night. This was understandable in the aftermath of both Hurricane Jeanne and the Dolphins’ poor start. Given the number of no-shows among the Dolphins offense and special teams, look for more no-shows in [...]

THIS DEFENSE NEEDS A DIVORCE

The Miami Dolphins defense needs the advice of a family lawyer. The question: Can they file for a divorce from the offense? They certainly have grounds . . . lack of support! Sunday night it was a new quarterback and the same old story – no offense. What a shame because the defense shut the [...]

FIEDLER FLOPS SO FEELEY FLIPS

The Miami Dolphins are a team with significant changes on offense that played like it, losing to the Tennessee Titans, 17-7. Although the defense played well, the offense floundered under starter Jay Fiedler. Somewhat surprisingly given the way Coach Dave Wannstedt stuck with Fiedler as the opening day starter, but not so given his poor [...]
