The Miami Dolphins have been under the microscope this offseason, getting tagged with the “dysfunctional” label by several pundits. As the dust has settled in the first phase of free agency this season, the questions need to be asked whether or not this is a team which is crazy like a fox, or simply, crazy? The possible moves by the Dolphins this offseason have been seriously questioned. Quarterback moves, the trade of WR Brandon Marshall and the lack of hiring a big time head coach have all drawn ire from the Dolphins faithful. Did the Miami front office receive too much heat on their moves? Miami was one of the teams early on which was speculated to be in the Peyton Manning sweepstakes, but, was signing the aging veteran a good move for the Dolphins? I never thought so. I was however, convinced that free agent QB Matt Flynn was a lock to head to Miami. Questions surfaced as Flynn’s former coach in Green Bay didn’t want to ink him to a deal in Miami.

The Miami Dolphins made an under-the-radar signing on Thursday, agreeing to terms with former Vikings safety, Tyrell Johnson.  Johnson was a 2nd round pick of the Vikings in 2008 and adds depth to the safety position.  It’s likely Johnson will come in and compete for either the starting strong or free safety spot with the [...]

2012 NFL Draft: Miami Dolphins Planning On Trading Up in Draft?

“With the eighth pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Miami Dolphins select…” Seriously. Does anyone have a clue in the world what this team is going to do in the draft? It isn’t as if anything else they have talked about doing over the past couple of years has panned out for Miami. If it did, then either Jim Harbaugh or Jeff Fisher would be coaching Peyton Manning...
