Found August 11, 2013 on Football Nation:
The Miami Dolphins' offensive line is going through a bit of transition this season. A change at left tackle, where the team allowed Jake Long to leave for greener pastures (and more green) in St. Louis, has created a bit of a cluster of chaos along the line.Jonathan Martin moved to the left side, to take Long’s place. Josh Samunda is getting a lot of playing time with the first unit. Richie Incognitio is still strong as one of the guards in the middle, as is newly-acquired Tyson Clabo from Atlanta.And the depth provided by Dallas Thomas makes this unit of strength if not substance.The one thing this team has been able to rely on, even with all the changes over the offseason is the fact Mike Pouncey will be there in the middle as the rock and the anchor of this line.And while he may not get as much press as he deserves or as his brother Maurkice for playing on the Pittsburgh Steelers, he is without a doubt maybe the best center in the AFC.How can you be that good and so underrat...

Lamar Miller not a lock to start at RB?

When the Dolphins let Reggie Bush walk this off-season it was assumed 2nd year running back Lamar Miller would be given the keys to the running game and put his skill set and quick feet to the test on the field. Miller has had the fan base and fantasy football owners excited by his potential as many has touted him to be the next stud running back in the league. Many assumed that...

Dolphins return to practice Sunday, but without Dion Jordan

The Miami Dolphins returned to the practice field on Sunday, following their 27-3 victory on Friday night against the Jaguars.  The focus of the practice was on fundamentals, so there were no 11 on 11 drills as is customary.  According to the Sun Sentinel, Joe Philbin said:  “I thought that we had a really good practice today. We decided to change up the practice schedule a...

Dolphins skin the Jags 27-3: Tannehill & Keller impressive, Wallace returns

The Miami Dolphins had only 5 days to think about their poor performance in the Hall of Fame Game last Sunday.  Ryan Tannehill and the Dolphins were anxious to get back on the field and show that their sloppy performance last week, was simply due to it being early in the preseason.   It didn’t help that the first practice after that game was perhaps the Dolphins (and Tannehill’s...

Will the Miami Dolphins make the playoffs?

The Dolphins have suffered through mediocre seasons for over the past decade, with the exception of the horrendous 1-15 2007 season, and the miraculous 11-5 record in 2008. Year in and year out , the Dolphins either: play a great first half of the season, followed by a disappointing second half, or vice versa. Usually, the Dolphins come up short when it comes to the off-season moves...

Caleb Sturgis appears in line to make Dolphins final roster

DAVIE, Fla. -- It would have been easy for Caleb Sturgis to feel like a fan before Friday's game at EverBank Field. Sturgis cheered for the Jacksonville Jaguars while growing up just down the road in St. Augustine. And there he was on the field before a game involving the Jaguars. "It was pretty neat. I was able to catch most of their games as a kid. Absolutely, Sturgis...

Miami Dolphins Top Pick Dion Jordan Unimpressive Through First Two Outings

Yes,I know it’s only preseason. That, however, does not change the fact that the Miami Dolphins spent the third overall pick of the 2013 NFL Draft on what they thought would be an impact, pass-rushing defensive end in Dion Jordan. Through two preseason games, Jordan hasn’t shown to be anything close to that. In fact, without watching the games, you’d have to look twice at...

Much of Dolphins' offense still under wraps

Two games into the exhibition season, most of the Miami Dolphins' offense remains under wraps. Receiver Mike Wallace is the team's most heralded newcomer, but while he made his exhibition debut in Friday's victory at Jacksonville, quarterback Ryan Tannehill has yet to look his way with the ball. Lamar Miller, the likely starter at running back, carried only twice for...

Miami Dolphins 2013 Fantasy Football Projections

QB Ryan Tannehill (Miami) Ryan Tannehill gets two new weapons to work with in Mike Wallace and Dustin Keller. Wallace may be overrated, but he’ll give them an upgrade on the outside, as Keller will at tight end. They have serious issues at left tackle, which could cancel some of that out, but I do expect Tannehill to improve on last year’s numbers, even if only because he has...

Dolphins dominate turnover battle, beat down Jaguars 27-3

When Dolphins cornerback Nolan Carroll intercepted a deflected pass in Friday's game at Jacksonville it represented a promising step in the team's development. Takeaways are a rarity for Miami. And when the offense turned Carroll's interception into a touchdown well that was a giant leap forward. Touchdowns are also a rarity. So too was the 58-yard field goal by rookie...

Garner Getting a Shot

The Dolphins continue to find a permanent solution at right guard, and it's versatile veteran Nate Garner who's getting a look now. Garner replaced Josh Samuda during the Dolphins' fourth offensive possession Friday night after Samuda struggled.

Mike Wallace is confident Dolphins will be aggressive

To the common eye it might have looked like the Jacksonville Jaguars were daring the Dolphins offense to go deep. Play after play early on in Friday night's 27-3 preseason win over Jacksonville the Jaguars appeared to line up with a single-safety high look and had its cornerback close to the Dolphins' receivers. For most offenses that kind of look might warrant a go-route...
