It was pretty clear from the time it left his foot that Dolphins kicker Caleb Sturgis‘ 57-yard field goal try in the closing seconds of a 26-23 loss to Baltimore on Sunday did not have a chance. Miami’s mascot was a little late to the party, though. As the potential game-tying boot sailed wide left, the giant Dolphin wearing football pants raised his fins triumphantly toward the sky before seeing the referee’s signal and realizing he had made a fool of himself. It was embarrassing, sure, but we’re willing to give T.D. the benefit of the doubt here. That Dolphin head doesn’t look like it offers a whole lot in terms of visibility.

Suggestions for Coach Philbin during the Dolphins bye week

The Miami Dolphins got off to a great start to the season.  They started 3-0 and dreams of challenging the Patriots for the AFC crown were dancing in all Dolfans’ heads.  The Dolphins weren’t perfect, but they were still winning, so no one seemed to worry.  Ryan Tannehill was on a roll and had just lead the team down the field for a come from behind victory over the Falcons...

Is the Dolphins' Hunt for a Quarterback Finally Over?

BigRey actually came up with this question. Imagine that. BigRey is a star on Dolphin Shout! It is nice to get ideas from you guys, and all I need to do is expand on them. To answer that headline myself, I think our hunt for a quarterback is over. I think we found the right player. Tannehill sure shows a lot of what it takes to make it in this league. A quarterback needs a lot...

Dolphins have lost 2 in a row and it is because of their offensive line

The Miami Dolphins lost a game in which they should have won.  Their offensive line began to unravel in the second half. Poor Ryan Tannehill has now been sacked 24 times in just 5 games.  That is crazy, and will not let him finish the season if they keep it up. The line was so […]

Dolphins' ground game on pace to be team's worst

The Miami Dolphins are on pace to break the 25-year-old franchise record for fewest rushing yards in a season. With 22 yards in Sunday's loss to Baltimore, the Dolphins increased their season total to 348, or 69.6 per game. That's not a recipe for success, and the Dolphins (3-2) take a two-game losing streak into this week's bye. Ryan Tannehill has been sacked an NFL...

For the Dolphins, the bye week comes at the right time

When the season started, if you were a fan that was skeptical of the Dolphins heading into the bye week consider yourself a believer in the doldrums of the Dolphins seasons.  Some fans said easily a 1-4 start after being leery of the offensive line's issues in the pre-season and facing top tier quarterbacks, Luck, Ryan, and Flacco.  Some fans said 2-3 would happen, and some...
