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: Photo Courtesy of Dolphins.com 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)
