MIAMI Perhaps it's good the New York Giants aren't the foe Sunday when the Miami Dolphins have their 40th-anniversary reunion of the 1972 undefeated team. "I'm more of a Giants fan than anything else," running back Jim Kiick, who scored a team-high four touchdowns for Miami during the 1972 playoffs, including one in the 14-7 Super Bowl VII win over Washington, said of where his football allegiance lies today. But Kiick, who said he rooted for the Giants when they last played the Dolphins in 2011, won't have to worry about any awkwardness Sunday. Miami is facing Jacksonville, a team that didn't even exist when the Dolphins went 17-0 during their legendary season of 1972. Before Miami fans fret too much, Kiick, who played for the Dolphins from 1968-74, grew up in New Jersey in the 1950s cheering Giants stars Frank Gifford and Charley Conerly and simply has gone back to supporting the team of his youth. Kiick, who lives in Fort Lauderdale, at least cal...

Anger will turn to apathy if Dolphins aren’t fixed quickly

The Miami Dolphins are one loss away from finishing the season with a losing record for the 4th straight season.  In case you were wondering, the Dolphins haven’t had a stretch like that since they were an expansion franchise in the 1960′s.  That means the Dolphins haven’t been THIS bad for THIS long in almost 50 years.   It’s sad that the only undefeated franchise in...

Ahmad Bradshaw has a sprained knee

New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin told the media that running back Ahmad Bradshaw has a sprained knee.  He’s not ready to rule him out, but Jenny Vrentas of the Newark Star-Ledger says it doesn’t sound like he’ll play this week. If Bradshaw isn’t able to play against the Falcons on Sunday, rookie David Wilson will likely get the start with both Kregg Lumpkin and Ryan...

Giants RB Bradshaw not ruled out for Atlanta game

Giants coach Tom Coughlin says he has not ruled running back Ahmad Bradshaw out from Sunday's matchup in Atlanta, despite a knee injury. But Bradshaw, injured vs. New Orleans last Sunday, missed practice on Wednesday, and Coughlin kept open the possibility that rookie backup David Wilson could start against the Falcons (11-2).

Mercury Morris may get time in Supreme Court

MIAMI Forty years ago, the Miami Dolphins beat Washington in Super Bowl VII to conclude a perfect season. Now, a key player from that team might be heading to Washington to have his say before the Supreme Court.

Hakeem Nicks to Roddy White: “Super Bowl rings don’t lie”

Earlier this season, Falcons wide receiver Roddy White claimed that Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz is only a slot receiver and that he can’t play on the outside with the “big boys”.  He also claimed that he and Julio Jones are the best receiver tandem in the league. Cruz stated that he didn’t care about White’s comments because he now has a Super Bowl ring. On Tuesday...

Stevie Brown Earning His Keep with the Giants

Anyone who says they knew who Stevie Brown was before the 2012 NFL Season is either a liar or a diehard Giants or Michigan Wolverines fan.  It is doubtful that fans of the Raiders, Panthers or Colts knew who he was before this year and he had short stints with all of those teams through his three year career. Brown, a seventh round pick in the 2010 NFL draft, got a shot with the...

Chad Jones Works Out for Eagles After Nearly Losing Leg in Car Accident (Video)
