I’m sticking with my prediction that Mike Wallace doesn’t last beyond 3 years of his monster 5-year, 60 million dollar deal with the Dolphins. Wallace held out long into Training Camp last off-season, putting himself above the team and was not the same all season. He caught just 55.2% of the passes thrown his way and averaged just 13.1 yards per catch. This off-season, he chased the cash and went to Miami and it’s predictable he could coast. He certainly did not look good in the Dolphins opener, catching just 1 pass for 15 yards. Yes, he was matched up with Joe Haden, but if you pay a receiver elite money, you expect him to be able to beat elite cornerbacks or at least hold his own. Fortunately for the Dolphins, Brian Hartline bailed out their passing game, but most teams don’t have as poor supporting defensive backs as the Browns.

Ryan Tannehill Says Dolphins Won’t Force The Ball To Mike Wallace

Mike Wallace’s debut with the Miami Dolphins was beyond underwhelming after catching 1 pass for 15 yards. Wallace was beyond mad at the performance, and eventually admitted he was mad at himself for performing so subpar.  Some of the talk was about how Browns cornerback Joe Haden performed against Wallace.   The Dolphins face the Colts on Sunday, and even though he wants to...

Ryan Tannehill on Mike Wallace: “We’re not going to force him the ball”

Mike Wallace obviously wasn’t happy with his performance on Sunday only pulling in 1 catch for 15 yards, and according to Ryan Tannehill if Wallace doesn’t get open he will continue to see limited targets. “I’m going to play the quarterback position the way coaches install the plays; I’m going to go through the reads just like they install it,” Tannehill said. “We...

Dolphins’ Mike Wallace is ready to move on

Dolphins coach Joe Philbin was forced to deal with two unpleasant issues on Monday — Mike Wallace’s postgame unhappiness and Randy Starks’ obscene gesture — while addressing a more worrisome problem: the lack of a running game in Sunday’s victory against Cleveland. Wallace refused to speak after the game leaving the impression he was upset about being targeted just five...

The Miami Dolphins In or Out?

The preceding rant is not directed at or have anything to do with the great folks here at Dolphinshout. It's directed at the writers and fans replying to the blogs in the Miami Herald and Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel.  Personally I think these folks should move on to another city and write for another team. It is obvious, "Hometown" has no meaning. The Broncos beat...

Philbin’s Locker Room Speech and comments on Wallace and Starks

The Miami Dolphins are 1-0, but if you walked around town, you’d think they were 0-1.  The Dolphins didn’t look pretty on Sunday in their 23-10 win, but they got the win regardless.  The Dolphins defense dominated the Browns and Ryan Tannehill led the team to 17 points in the second half.  In the NFL, playoff teams win games ugly.  The Patriots struggled on Sunday against...

AFC East Preview: Early, but important games for AFC East teams

At one point on Opening Weekend, it looked like the Miami Dolphins could finish the day tied with the Bills atop the AFC East after 1 game.  That would have been surprising, of course, but the Jets and Patriots both rallied from 4th quarter deficits to pull out victories.  So what we have after week 1 is a 3 way tie atop the AFC East.  Each week, we’ll continue to monitor the...

Tannehill and Wallace are on the same page, “100% normal”

Earlier this week, the Miami Dolphins had an unhappy wide receiver on their hands.  Mike Wallace was unhappy that he was not targeted once in the first half of the Dolphins 23-10 win over the Browns.  He was targeted a few times in the second half of the game, but only managed to catch one ball for 15 yards.  His frustration carried over into the post game when he was so visibly...

3 Things Absolutely Critical for a Miami Victory at Indianapolis

  Sunday’s showdown between the Miami Dolphins and the Indianapolis Colts is perhaps one of this weekend’s better games. Both teams are coming off victories against sub-par NFL teams, so this game should help clear the mud as to how both teams should be identified. Many pundits have this game pegged as a must-win for Miami, as they face an extremely challenging schedule...

WR James Jones disappointed by loss, not lack of catches

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- James Jones is apparently the anti-Mike Wallace. Of the 21 complete passes thrown by Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers in Week 1 of the regular season, none of them were caught by Jones. Unlike Wallace, whose one catch in his Miami Dolphins debut had him upset, Jones wasn't worried about his role -- or lack thereof -- in the Packers' offense after...
