Found August 29, 2012 on Phins Phocus:
PLAYERS: Jeff Ireland
TEAMS: Miami Dolphins
Flashy camera angles and palm trees waving in the wind.  Images conjured of neon lights and humid dance floors on South Beach.  This is what one sees as the intro to the world that is the Miami Dolphins featured on Hard Knocks.The Dolphins have undergone a whirl-wind of adversity throughout the offseason heading into training camp.  Whether it be missing on landing a head coach the fan base can revere, missing on signing a quarterback to make this fanbase forget the last decade of losing, and then signing, cutting, and trading away players that make the team or take the team from good to great.Even though as fans, we have all had a glimpse of the Miami Dolphins and seen the fun-loving and yet stern Joe Philbin, we have to wonder is what were seeing exaclty what went down.As a fan, we might question whether or not the second episode truly featured Chad Johnson being cut in Coach Philbin's office just for the sake of TV or did it take place earlier in the day with less drama.  Did...

What's should the Dolphins next move be?

Dolphin’s nation it’s time to a big deep breath,  yesterday the Dolphins finally had luck on their side as it appears Jake Long’s ankle injury is only a minor tweak and he should even be ready to go for the opener although that has yet to be fully confirmed.

Karlos Dansby Is Unsure About Dolphins Direction

The Miami Dolphins new regime is about to implode before the regular season even starts. The Dolphins are short at wide receiver, short at cornerback, and short on confidence in Joe Philbin.

Miami Dolphins' Plane Hits Another on the Tarmac

The Miami Dolphins, followed by HBO's Hard Knocks cameras everywhere this preseason have had a rough go of it so far. Rookie coach Joe Philbin and his team finished the preseason winless and are set to embark on their season in a tough AFC East with a rookie quarterback, a shaky defense and very few skilled players.

The 10 Best Moments From The Fourth Episode Of Dolphins ‘Hard Knocks’

This week’s episode of “Hard Knocks” was a vast improvement over the week before. Even if this season suffers for a lack of big personalities, the series is always able to tease quotes and tidbits out of players that we can use to make fun of them for the rest of the season, if not longer. And so it will be with Ryan Tannehill not knowing how the NFL divisions and conferences...

Dansby's latest boast is Hall of Fame prediction

DAVIE, Fla. -- Karlos Dansby wears a wristband that reads "Confidence." Not that he ever needs to be reminded. Dansby last season, even though he's never made a Pro Bowl, proclaimed himself the best linebacker in the NFL. Take a look at what he's now saying about himself. The Miami Dolphins middle linebacker expects one day to end up in the Pro Football Hall of...

Ryan Tannehill thought the Chiefs were in the NFC East

Getty During Tuesday night’s Hard Knocks episode on HBO, it was revealed that Dolphins rookie quarterback<a href=""I wasn't a huge pro fan growing up; I wasn't loyal to any one team," said Tannehill, "so I don't really know the divisions, and even really conferences. I know most of the conferences but some of those, I really have no clue. And...

Ryan Tannehill doesn't know his NFL divisions on Hard Knocks

The buzz surrounding Hard Knocks has dissapated since the dramatic release of Chad Johnson from the Miami Dolphins.  On this week's episode though we got a classic Hard Knocks moment showing Dolphins rookie QB Ryan Tannehill channeling his inner Ryan Lochte.  Watch as Tannehill tries to vaguely guess which NFL team is in which NFL division, saying the Kansas City Chiefs...

Miami Dolphins trade C Ryan Cook to the Dallas Cowboys

Trade for Cowboys: The Cowboys are clearly desperate for interior offensive line help. After losing both of their starting guards this offseason, the Cowboys replaced them with Nate Livings, an inferior player who really struggled in Cincinnati last year, and Mackenzy Bernadeau, a career backup who has yet to nail down a starting job thanks to injuries. 2011 4th round pick David...

NFL Preseason Preview: Cowboys vs. Dolphins

The NFL odds look to be in the Cowboys’ favor for their preseason finale against Ryan Tannehill and the Miami Dolphins, but stranger things have happened, especially in exhibition play. Dallas is coming off a 20-19 win last week over the St. Louis Rams, though the score looked much closer than it really was. The Cowboys were actually up 17-3 after the first quarter and 20-6 at...

Dolphins ‘Hard Knocks’ Episode Four Live Blog

As you can tell from write-up, I wasn’t too enthused with last week’s installment of “Hard Knocks”. It started with minor fallout to the decision to cut Chad Johnson, followed by 55 minutes of narrative about borderline roster casualties plus Ryan Tannehill being named starting QB by a mildly prickly Joe Philbin. Again, not necessarily things that are pointless but not exactly...
