Have you ever heard of an NFL team complain that another team disrespected them by running the same play over and over because they couldn’t stop it? Until now, I hadn’t either.

They called 13 runs during the drive, including six to the exact same hole over left tackle. “It really (ticked) me off,” tackle Tony McDaniel told the Palm Beach Post. “It was disrespectful to us to run the same play over and over and be successful. “Normally when somebody’s driving down the field you just think, ‘Well, they just had a good run there,’ but you run the same play over and over, as a competitor that (ticks) me off.” “It is disrespe

Dolphins Gameplan: Keep Tannehill alive…..

The Miami Dolphins loss last week at home put their season on the brink.  After losing 4 of their last 5, the Dolphins are as close to earning a top 10 pick in the draft, as they are to making the playoffs.  If the Dolphins can pull off an upset on Sunday and a few other things happen, we might be able to entertain the possibility.  But, the Dolphins’ task at hand is a very...

Dolphins have fared surprisingly well out west

DAVIE, Fla. The Miami Dolphins refused to let a Friday night flight alter their pregame preparation.

Dolphins Defense Upset Because ‘Disrespectful’ Patriots Ran Same Play Over and Over in Week 13 Win

When the Patriots put the game away in the fourth quarter on a 16-play, 77-yard drive that ended with a field goal to ice the game, they did so thanks to a run-heavy attack.

Reggie Bush And Will Smith Throw Up The Peace Sign

Maybe he will put me in Bad Boys III Juan… Reggie Bush has had pretty average season as he plays the last year of his contract out.  It doesn’t look like he will be back in South Beach.  With Daniel Thomas and Lamar Miller in the fold, the new regime might choose to move on.  Still, Bush has the star power to hang out with Hollywood Heavyweights like Will Smith.  Smith is...

Miami Dolphins should have hands full versus the 49ers
