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 kicker Caleb Sturgis. Yes there were a few promising signs in the Dolphins' 27-3 victory at Jacksonville on Friday much more promising than what Miami showed in last week's 24-20 loss to Dallas in the Hall of Fame game which means things might be moving in the right direction overall. Among the priorities for coach Joe Philbin against the Jaguars were his team getting off to a fast start winning the turnover battle and improved tackling. Miami accomplished Philbin's first goal kind of by jumping out to a 14-0 lead a stark contrast to a week ago when the Dolphins fell behind the Cowboys 17-...

NFL Preseason Drinking Game: Official Rules

Alright Dolphins fans and football fans everywhere, the NFL is officially back.  Well, back in the sense that you can turn on the TV and you can find highlights and actual games (meaningless as they are) on television.  BUT, preseason games can be a bit boring, can’t they?  After all, with the exception of the 3rd preseason game, the starting units usually play a few series...

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.

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.

Miami Dolphins 2013: Most Overrated and Underrated Players
