Don't get me wrong, there are some glaring issues with the Miami Dolphins. The fact that the Dolphins could be heading to near mediocre status is nothing new in the last 10 years.However, here are the aspects of the team that I really like and can appreciate as a Dolfan.1. Charles Clay: as that H-Back threat. Last week we saw why Charles Clay was drafted and what he brings to the table. He brings speed at his position and hands. He brings a Chris Cooley of the Washington Redskins type of player to the Redskins. Combined with Anthony Fasano as threat, that combination can be special.2. Reggie Bush: He can continue to thrive if he's being used in space. When Reggie turns up field and has nothing but green turf/grass in front, he shows you what he can do. He has the speed and agility to make defenders miss. It's actually quite comical when defenders are flying and flailing to catch him. Reggie has also shown he can catch the ball out of the backfield. 3. Matt M...
BEST OF MAXIM
I’m hoping that there are similarities between the Miami Dolphins season and my season picks. I missed a bunch of weeks, but currently sit at an impressive 1-6-1 record. Not quite as bad as the Dolphins 0-7 start, but bad nonetheless. Actually, if you are a betting man/woman, you’d be wise to pick the opposite [...]
Dan Carpenter’s groin injury apparently didn’t improve quickly enough for the Dolphins’ kicker to play against Dallas on Thanksgiving. Carpenter, who had never missed a game in his four NFL seasons until missing Sunday’s win over Buffalo, did not travel with the team to Dallas today, a source confirmed. Shayne Graham will handle the kicking [...]
Miami Dolphins quarterback Matt Moore was named a candidate for the NFL’s FedEx Air & Ground Player of the Week for his impressive performance in Sunday’s 35-8 rout of the Buffalo Bills.

The Cowboys and Dolphins playing on Thanksgiving will forever conjure memories of the 1993 game. Dallas defensive lineman Leon Lett adding to his blunderful reputation by sliding across ice and snow to bring alive a dead ball, setting up Miami for the winning kick as time ran out.
With Lett now part of the Cowboys' coaching staff, and Snickers pushing a lighthearted ''...
CALLING THE GHOST OF LEON LETT!
There is no time to celebrate the win in DC. The NFC East Leading Dallas Cowboys will play the Miami Dolphins who are now playing good football after getting off to a terrible start. Their defense has not let up a TD in their last 3 games.
Romo and company need to be focused or the Dolphins will spoil alot of Thanksgiving Day Dinners.
