Battle of South Florida ends with Bucs on top of Fins 20-7 The Miami Dolphins and Tampa Bay Buccaneers met Friday night under the moon and lights in Miami for each club's first preseason contest of the 2012 season. The game started off smoothly for the Bucs as they scored on their first two drives with touchdown runs by rookie running back and first-rounder from Boise State, Doug Martin, and veteran running back LeGarrette Blount. Martin was very impressive in his NFL debut with seven carries for twenty 21 yards; he also was not the only Buccaneers' rookie to showcase playmaking ability as LaVonte David of Nebraska was all over the field recording the games lone interception. While the Bucs' offense thrived in the first quarter the Dolphins failed to get anything started with quarterback Matt Moore, who started the game in place of a recovering David Garrard. Moore recorded a dismal perfomance going 7-for-12 for 79 yards and was intercepted by rookie LaVonte Dav...

Chad Johnson arrested for domestic violence

Chad Johnson was arrested for alleged domestic violence outside his home after allegedly head-butting his wife during an argument.

Joe Philbin says that he knew in his gut that Chad Johnson wasn’t a good fit for Miami.

Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin has gone on the record in regards to why the team cut Chad Johnson in a presser that was televised on the NFL Network. Philbin assumed a stance that painted a picture that the decision was based on a “body of work” that was put together “both on and off-the-field.” Please click the link below to read this feature.

Dolphins LB Karlos Dansby Unhappy with Chad Johnson’s Release

Well that was quick. Miami Dolphins defensive captain was a guest on the Sid Rosenberg show on 640 AM in Miami and had some strong opinions on the teams decision to release wide receiver Chad Johsnon following his arrest for domestic violence on Saturday night. This can’t be going over well with new head coach Joe Philbin, whose decision it was to cut Johnson. He first major...

Dolphins’ John Jerry out of shape, unlikely to make roster

John Jerry entered the offseason as the projected started at right guard, with Vernon Carey gone. Jerry, a 2010 3rd round pick, was drafted to be a starter by this point. However, he struggled in offseason practices and soon fell below Artis Hicks, who was a backup in Cleveland last season and heading into his age 34 season. They also signed Eric Steinbach, heading into his age 32...

Vincent Jackson thinks Josh Freeman should be mentioned among the top five quarterbacks

We get it. Vincent Jackson is happy to be out of San Diego and with the up and coming Tampa Bay Buccaneers. But that happiness doesn’t give him the license to make outlandish statements about his new quarterback. We’ve been down this road once, but that time it was with Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco. And as absurd as it was for Flacco to state that he’s the best quarterback...

Watch the video of Chad Johnson’s bond hearing for domestic violence arrest

As you probably already know, Chad Johnson of the Miami Dolphins was arrested on domestic violence charges yesterday. Luckily for him he was able to get in front of a judge early this morning (in some states he would have been in jail until Monday, oh the horror!). Bond was set at $2500 in a very quick hearing as you can see in the video below. I’m interested to see how this plays...

The Greg Schiano era officially started last night with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers taking the field for the first time under his guidance. I have attended Buccaneers training camp this summer and some of the same things I’ve witnessed in practice, showed up on the field last evening against the Miami Dolphins. The Buccaneers have stated repeatedly this offseason that they want to...

Is it over for Chad Johnson??

So the Miami Dolphins decided to part ways with wide receiver Chad Johnson on Sunday in the wake of Johnson's arrest stemming from a domestic battery incident involving him and his wife on Saturday night. This was supposed to be the time when we would see a revival of a career that had fallen on hard times last season in New England. Johnson was probably going to be the Dolphins...

Chad Johnson is released by the Dolphins

Innocent until proven guilty right? That theory does not apply when you bring unwanted attention to your business. The Miami Dolphins are completely within their rights to cut Chad Johnson because he made a mistake that they do not want affiliated with their team. The league has reported that the 34-year-old has already cleared out his locker at training camp. Even if his account...
