Found September 28, 2013 on The Saints Nation:
PLAYERS: Ryan Tannehill
TEAMS: Miami Dolphins
For the second week in a row my wife Eliza18s, last year's champ, owned all of you winning the guru competition. And me too. Clearly knowing little about the ins and outs of the roster is a massive advantage, something I'd never considered. She is now firmly in the lead with two weekly wins, with MarijnPessers in second with one win. But as much as I'd love to save the $50 again this year can you guys step up your game a little bit? I'm getting sick of seeing a picture of my face on the blog each week. Make your predictions for the Dolphins game and try to win a $50 gift card to at the end of the season. Here's how it works: answer each of the five questions below (5th question is the score prediction, the tiebreaker) in the comment section. If you win, you automatically go into the standings as a weekly winner for the season. The person with the most weekly wins at the end of the season will win the $50 gift card. Good luck, here are the questions: 1. How many times will the Saints sack Ryan Tannehill? 2. Who will lead the Saints in tackles in this game? 3. Who will score the Saints' first touchdown? 4. Who will lead the Saints in yards gained this week (receiving or rushing, return yards and passing yards don't count) 5 - BONUS/TIEBREAKER - Final score prediction  

Good news and bad news from Dolphins practice

  The Dolphins hit the practice field this past week riding the confidence of winning three game in a row and being 3-0 to start the season.  While the Dolphins will be off on Friday, the injury report was published today and circulated around the NFL and media. It's important to note the following news and notes from the week:  There is a small debate on...

Can the Dolphins make Drew Brees pay for not signing with them back in 2006?

The Miami Dolphins were willing to jump through hoops to sign Drew Brees as their starting quarterback back in 2006 when he was a free-agent. The Dolphins went on to sign Daunte Culpepper instead because Brees didn’t give them a definite answer. New Orleans signed Brees and went on to multiple playoff seasons and one […]

A complete breakdown of the Dolphins next opponent; the Saints

The Miami Dolphins game against the New Orleans Saints is keeping me up later than I’d like to be. All I can say for sure it’s that I wish we would’ve played them last year instead of this year, but it is what it is thus we must move forward with our schedule. I took a look at this game 2 days ago, based on Miami’s success against Atlanta and now, as the Monday night game...

Dolphins Gameplan: Protect Tannehill and control the clock

The Miami Dolphins have an extra day to prepare (and heal) before traveling to New Orleans to take on the 3-0 Saints.  The Dolphins coaching staff had better come up with a solid game plan because this game will not be an easy one.  Heading to New Orleans is never easy because they have Drew Brees and the #6 offense in the NFL.  What’s worse?  The Saints also have the #4 defense...

All the Dolphins do is score touchdowns

There are a variety of reasons why the Miami Dolphins are number one at red zone scoring efficiency this year with an 87.5% touchdown conversion rate.  The first reason is obvious and Brian Hartline describes it with just two words, “better players”.  Miami’s three scores on the road against the Indianapolis Colts outline are proof of a more explosive line-up.

Tackling a problem for Dolphins despite 3-0 start

The Miami Dolphins know they won't keep winning if their tacklers keep whiffing. Missed tackles by Miami have resulted in mediocre run defense, which was expected to be the team's strength this season. Instead, the Dolphins are giving up rushing yardage at a disturbing rate, which makes their 3-0 record even more surprising. Wrapping up will be especially important when...

Dolphins DE Wake questionable

Miami Dolphins end Cameron Wake and two other defensive starters are listed as questionable for Monday night's game at New Orleans. Wake (left knee), tackle Paul Soliai (knee) and linebacker Koa Misi (shoulder) were all limited in practice Saturday. Cornerback Dimitri Patterson (groin) didn't practice and has been ruled out for the game. Linebacker Dannell Ellerbe (ribs...

Mike Wallace: Ryan Tannehill Is Ahead Of Where I Expected

The Miami Dolphins are 3-0, with the chance to start this season off with 4 straight wins if they can get past the New Orleans Saints. The biggest reason for the Dolphins great start has to be the progression of Ryan Tannehill at the quarterback position. One person especially impressed with Tannehill is Mike Wallace.  The big money free agent signing for the Dolphins says “Tannehill...

Cameron Wake listed as questionable for Dolphins

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) -- Miami Dolphins end Cameron Wake and two other defensive starters are listed as questionable for Monday night's game at New Orleans. Wake (left knee), tackle Paul Soliai (knee) and linebacker Koa Misi (shoulder) were all limited in practice Saturday. Cornerback Dimitri Patterson (groin) didn't practice and has been ruled out for the game. Linebacker Dannell...

Mike Wallace: Tannehill ahead of where I thought

On Wednesday Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace said this about quarterback Ryan Tannehill: "I think he's a really good player. I think he's ahead of where I thought he would be. He's a smart player. Whatever it is the hype and stuff we've been getting the past week or two he's like 'I don't care about it.' He's the same guy. He goes to work...

Miami Dolphins at New Orleans Saints: 2013 Week 4 NFL Pick

Miami Dolphins (3-0) at New Orleans Saints (3-0) The Saints have held all 3 of their opponents this season to 17 or fewer points this season, something they did a total of 3 times last season. Young stars have broken out, especially Cameron Jordan, who is playing like an All-Pro back at his collegiate position of 5-technique defensive end. The offense doesn’t look right yet, but...

Best friends become foes as Dolphins meet Saints

Just across the Mississippi River from the world-famous French Quarter is neighborhood called Algiers, where Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace and Saints cornerback Keenan Lewis became playmates around age 5. Their friendship went beyond sports. Wallace didn't even play football until Lewis persuaded him to go out for their high school team at O. Perry Walker. A decade later, they...



Dolphins ready for their shot at Monday night glory

DAVIE, Fla. -- Don Jones remembers how big Monday Night Football was when growing up in tiny Town Creek, Ala. "It's a small country town," Jones said. "There are 1,400 people there. I'd say 1,359 were watching. It's a big little sports town." Well, beef that number up. "Hopefully, all 1,400 will be watching (Monday). I'm serious. All 1...

ZB Game of the Week: Dolphins at Saints

Heading into the season I would not have expected to be looking forward to this game as much as I am. The Saints were clearly going to be better than in 2012, but undefeated and dominant, particularly on defense, is unexpected. The Dolphins were also going to be better. But so far the fish have stuck right with New England for tops in the AFC East. Monday Night Football does not...
