Found August 10, 2013 on AFC East Daily:
BY SEAN DONOVANAt a quick glance of the box score, it looks like the Miami Dolphins clicked as a team during their second preseason game -- a 27-3 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars Friday night.But a closer examination reveals a group of offensive first-stringers still struggling to get on the same page.Quarterback Ryan Tannehill looked indecisive in the pocket for a second straight game, often squandering the time his offensive line gave him by holding on to the ball or throwing it away. In Miami's first three drives, the second-year quarterback was 2-for-6 for 23 yards and took a sack, resulting in three punts.Tannehill later engineered a scoring drive that was aided by two defensive penalties, capping it off with a 22-yard touchdown strike to Dustin Keller, the second time the quarterback found his new tight end for a long gain on the possession.Dolphins fans got to see their team's vaunted new offensive weapons all together for the first time but watched a unit that ...

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...

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.

Tannehill stronger in second outing

Ryan Tannehill played a little longer and a lot smoother in his second preseason game. The Jacksonville Jaguars can only hope Blaine Gabbert will do the same.
