Dolphins fans, we want to wish all of you the Happiest of Holidays from PhinNation!!! We’re sorry for our absence recently, but we are back and ready to get you primed for the Dolphins season finale and upcoming offseason. We spent the last few days eating (and drinking) with family and friends during the holiday break. But we’re back, and ready to get back to talking Dolphins football with the best fans in football! We have a few stories coming to you today and we’re going to start with a recap of what’s been happening recently:

Dolphins 24 Bills 10
The Dolphins took care of business at home for the second straight week. They beat up on the Bills in a game that wasn’t really as close as the score indicates. Ryan Tannehill didn’t throw for a ton of yards, but he lead the Dolphins on 3 touchdown drives, two of which were capped off with touchdown passes to Reggie Bush. The second TD pass was a thing of beauty. When the ball left Tannehill’s hand, I thought it was destined for the 1st row of seats, but it fell beautifully over the shoulder and into the waiting arms of Reggie Bush. Bush would score 3 touchdowns on the day (2 receiving, 1 rushing) in one of his best games of the season. With Daniel Thomas out, Lamar Miller saw an increase in his workload. He did a great job of filling in for Reggie Bush and lining up as the half back when Bush split out as a wide receiver. Love the potential in this kid!
The Dolphins defense did their part by creating 4 turnovers. They allowed CJ Spiller to run all of them (as he usually does), but the Dolphins defense did a great job of taking the ball away from an opponent, something they hadn’t done much recently.Great overall game by the Dolphins as they improved to 7-8 on the season. This week they’ll travel to New England to take on a Patriots team they have lost 5 straight to. If the Dolphins can win, it will mark the first time since 2008 that they will not finish with a losing record.
Wake a Pro Bowler
On Wednesday, Cameron Wake was named to this year’s Pro Bowl. This is a great achievement for Wake, who will be the Dolphins only representative (unless there are injury replacements). Other Dolphins that were thought to have a chance included Reshad Jones and Brandon Fields. Personally, I think Mike Pouncey deserved at least a backup selection at center, but certainly Jones and Fields should have made the team. Hopefully, Jeff Ireland (or whomever is calling the shots this offseason) can find some offensive playmakers that can one day make the trip to Hawaii! (cont’d on page 2, click below)

AROUND THE WEB
The Dolphins head into week 17 eliminated from the playoffs and left with a best case scenario of an 8-8 season. That being said it seems that it is all but a certainty that Jeff Ireland will be retained for another season as the Dolphins general manager. Despite and up and down season, the Dolphins organization feels that this team is headed in the right direction and...
Miami Dolphins defensive end Cameron Wake was selected as a starter for the AFC in the 2013 Pro Bowl. Wake is the only Dolphins player to be named to the roster.
The selection marks the second time Wake will make an apperance in the Pro Bowl throughout the first four years of his NFL career. Wake made his Pro Bowl debut in 2010 when he recorded 14 sacks in his first season in...
Miami Dolphins management has made it very clear that a logo change -- along with new uniforms -- is in store this offseason.
Dolphins CEO Mike Dee said the new logo would be a mix of modern and retro. What that means exactly has led to much speculation.
There have already been a couple of rumored iterations making their way around the Internet, but, on Wednesday, a new image picked...
The day following the 2012 draft, which included Stanford tackle Jonathan Martin going to the Miami Dolphins, Jeff Ireland was quoted as saying, "Last night I saw an article about Jake Long. I have...
Come here for the best Miami Dolphins blog on the web. We have all of the most up to date new and opinions on the Dolphins organization for its fans.
In the STRANGE TALE, that is Chad Johnson and his ex-wife Evelyn Lozada, it appears that the two are living once again under the same roof.According to a Chad's tweet, he proclaimed to a Twitter follower that Lozada and himself were once again living under the same roof.As of now, Lozada is on vacation in the Bahamas, but (let's assume Chad is telling the truth) they should...
The Miami Dolphins wrap up their 2012 season against an opponent they saw earlier this month. The Dolphins will head to Foxboro to take on the AFC East Champion New England Patriots for the second time in 4 weeks. A tough task, right? The task for the Dolphins is made more difficult by the fact that the Patriots have a lot to play for on Sunday. While the Dolphins will immediately...
With an underwhelming offense that needs upgrades to become playoff-worthy, the Miami Dolphins this winter could be eager to reach a deal with a 1,000-yard rusher who can catch passes and score from anywhere on the field.
Or perhaps they'll deem Reggie Bush too expensive to keep.
Bush might play his final game for the Dolphins (7-8) on Sunday when they close their season at...
The Miami Dolphins are expected to unveil a new logo in the near future to use in the 2013 season, but a picture circulating around the Internet could be the first look that fans get of the team’s new… well, look.
In a photo tweeted out by Uni Watch’s Paul Lukas, a sleek dolphin — no longer wearing a helmet — is surrounded by an orange sun against a white background.
DAVIE, Fla. (AP) -- Receiver Davone Bess has been ruled out of the Miami Dolphins' season finale Sunday at New England because of a back injury.
It will be the third consecutive game Bess has missed. He finishes the season with 61 catches for 778 yards and one score.
Cornerback Nolan Carroll (knee) and defensive tackle Randy Starks (family reasons) were listed Friday as questionable...
DolFansNYC.com posted a blurry image of what could be the new Miami Dolphins logo a few days ago. This morning, Paul Lukas of Uni Watch posted a cleaner version of the symbol on his twitter account.
The team has yet to confirm whether or not this is actually one of the designs that they are considering for next season. Here’s the cleaned up version in case you’re interested...
Reggie Bush is scheduled to be among the Dolphins' most prominent free agents next spring, but if the running back has his way, he'll be back in a Miami uniform in 2013. He made it very clear Wednesday when he had his weekly press briefing at the team's training facility.
Defensive end Cameron Wake was the only Dolphins player selected on the initial AFC Pro Bowl team, a team that's likely to change once players bow out because of injuries or their presence in the Super Bowl. For Wake, it marked a second Pro Bowl selection in the last three years.
Miami Dolphins safety Reshad Jones may have been denied a Pro Bowl nod this season, but he has emerged as one of the better play-making defenders not just in the AFC, but in the league.And though the third-year defensive back may not be getting the national recognition, his opponents are certainly aware of his abilities."He’s been involved in a lot of big plays lately,"...
