Found November 22, 2012 on Tireball.com:
Leon Lett was part of three Dallas Cowbo Super Bow teams. Lett was a two time pro bowl player. Yet, the most memorable plays of his career are blunders. The most memorable  play of Lett’s career happened in a game against the Miami Dolphins in 1993.That day the Texas Stadium was covered with snow and sleet as a rare storm pounded the area. Dallas led 14-13 with 15 seconds left when Miami sent Pete Stoyanovich out for a 41-yard field goal attempt. Dallas blocked the kick which should have ended the game, except Lett attempted to recover the ball as it lay on the field. He slid on the ice touching the ball but not securing it. The Dolphins would recover the **** and kick a game winning field goal with 3 seconds left. Surprisingly the play altered the seasons of the two teams. Miami took the lead in the AFC East after the game but went on a five game losing streak and missed the playoffs. Dallas went on to win the rest of their games culminating with a Super Bowl victory over the Buffa...

Pitiful Picks: Thanksgiving Day Style!

The Miami Dolphins coaching staff rearranged the Dolphins practice schedule this week to give the players off for Thanksgiving.  The Dolphins practiced on Tuesday, a day that they are usually off, so that they could spend Thanksgiving with their families.  Hopefully, the Dolphins coaches ‘family’ approach will pay off as they continue preparations for the Seahawks tomorrow...

Carroll and Bush meet again as Seattle faces Miami

When Reggie Bush got his chance to face Pete Carroll in the NFC playoffs two seasons ago, he couldn't wait. It was the opportunity to show off before his former college coach when injuries in the New Orleans backfield left Bush as the featured back. Then Bush carried the ball just five times and was left watching Carroll celebrate the Seahawks' upset victory of the then...

Seattle Seahawks vs Miami Dolphins: Battle Of The Rookie Quarterbacks

When the Miami Dolphins selected Ryan Tannehill with the 8th pick of this year’s draft, they didn’t expect him to be their starting quarterback, at least not this year. The prevailing theory was that he would sit on the bench this year and start next year. Tannehill obviously didn’t get that memo; he went out and grabbed the starting job before the first game of the season...

Seattle Seahawks at Miami Dolphins: Week 12 NFL Pick

Seattle Seahawks (6-4) at Miami Dolphins (4-6) As I mentioned in the Tennessee/Jacksonville write up, one situation I love betting on is road favorites after a bye. It’s strong for divisional matchups, as teams are 22-3 ATS as divisional road favorites off a bye since 2002, but that trend is still 22-12 ATS for non-divisional matchups and 44-15 ATS overall, so it’s not like it’s...
