Will it really matter if the Miami Dolphins win or lose on Sunday?

With the last game of the 2014 season for the Miami Dolphins set for Sunday, they find themselves once again out of the playoff field. The game is meaningless and whether they win or lose, their draft position won’t change very much – one spot up or one spot down – or perhaps, they stay where they are regardless of the result. Therefore, does it matter if they win or lose on...

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill’s Fatal Flaw

Ryan Tannehill A recurring trend with Ryan Tannehill: The inability to throw down the field for large plays. It is inexplicable; Mike Wallace has been one of the premier deep threats in the NFL for many years and yet is unable to make the big plays he was known for in Pittsburg. Tannehill has games where he plays like the QB of the future in Miami (against San Diego) and has developed...

Column: Say good night - the party is over!

The 2014 season is over for the Miami Dolphins. There are no scenarios left that can miraculously save their chances and foist them into the playoffs. On the bright side, there is no collapse that can occur to enrage the fan base. The problem with that is there can be adulation either. No chance to celebrate. For a 40th consecutive year, there will be no parade celebrating the Dolphins...

Dolphins win 37-35 over the Vikings in thrilling fashion

Nothing about the Dolphins eight victories have been orthodox. On a day when the coaching change winds have been swirling among media circles, all eyes were on the Dolphins down 17-7 at the half.  Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater showed why he was chosen in the first round despite a poor workout for NFL teams. Roaring back in the second half didn’t seem likely as the Dolphins...

Sobre el juego de hoy solo diré que los Dolphins de Miami van con su mejor personal desde la salida de Branden Albert, para enfrentar en casa a unos Vikings de Minnesota que han venido de menos a más.

Are major changes coming down the line for the Miami Dolphins?

Man, the Miami Dolphins really do make all of us cry. They also make us pout, blame, point fingers, get angry at the TV, and finally make us clamor for change. Change is hard to come by. The Dolphins players are at-fault and it’s hard to ignore their lackluster effort week in week out. It seems like every other week the Dolphins win and even if they win…they really lose. It...
