PLAYERS: Ryan Tannehill
TEAMS: Miami Dolphins
Let’s not get too excited about Ryan Tannehill and the Miami Dolphins just yet. It’s rare for a team who went on a spending spree during free agency to start off well, but give credit to the Dolphins. Despite the fast start, don’t believe the hype and here’s why. Reason 1: The offensive line Ryan Tannehill has been sacked a league-leading 14 times in only three games. Sacked five times by the Colts’ defense, Tannehill wasn’t able to practice fully last week because of an injury to his right shoulder... Read more

A complete breakdown of the Dolphins next opponent; the Saints

The Miami Dolphins game against the New Orleans Saints is keeping me up later than I’d like to be.

I took a look at this game 2 days ago, based on Miami’s success against Atlanta and now, as the Monday night game...

Pitiful Picks for week 4 of the NFL season

On this Miami Dolphins-less Sunday, we get to watch games from around the NFL.  The Dolphins might be playing, but rooting against other teams, that could be playoff competition, would be wise.  Yes, it’s still only week 4 in the NFL, but the Dolphins should be rooting for every NFC team that’s playing against an AFC team. They probably also want to root against the rest of...

But so far the fish have stuck right with New England for tops in the AFC East. Monday Night Football does not...
