Found September 27, 2012 on Football Nation:
PLAYERS: Ryan Tannehill
TEAMS: Miami Dolphins
It was 2008 and the Miami Dolphins found themselves 0-2 following an ugly 31-10 loss in Arizona. Rookie head coach Tony Sparano was winless and a looming matchup at New England didn’t make things any better.Visions of going 1-15 once again were already growing across South Florida. However, a 38-13 trouncing of the Patriots marked the beginning of an amazing turnaround as the Dolphins went 11-5 and made the postseason.Here in 2012, the Dolphins are set to face the Cardinals once more and the circumstances appear similar. Arizona is playing solid football while the Dolphins are under .500 at 1-2. Is another blowout victory in store for the Cardinals or can the Dolphins gain revenge? There’s no sure sign (yet) that Miami can resurrect that magical 2008 season.In fact, it’s almost certain.There’s no doubt that Joe Philbin is the right man to turn this team around. But after three weeks of the regular season, it’s clear the offense is nowhere near his preference.“We’re still working thr...

Dolphins Gameplan: Defense must dominate

Miami Dolphins linebacker Karlos Dansby called the Dolphins game on Sunday against the Cardinals a ‘must win’.  The 1-2 Dolphins certainly have their work cut out for them if they hope to beat the 3-0 Cardinals.  The Dolphins offense has been sporadic and the defense is not ready to carry the team at this point.  The Dolphins [...]

Dolphins' Carpenter not dwelling on past

DAVIE, Fla. Dan Carpenter stood in front of his locker the other day wearing a hat that read Still Perfect. That referred to the 1972 Miami Dolphins, not the 2012 Dolphins kicker. Carpenter hardly was perfect in a 23-20 loss last Sunday against the New York Jets. He missed a 47-yard field goal with 10:48 left in regulation that proved pivotal. Then he shanked a 48-yarder in overtime...

Dolphins bring back Amaya, Rivera

Safety Jonathon Amaya and linebacker Mike Rivera were signed by the Dolphins, who waived offensive tackle Ray Feinga and safety Troy Nolan. Amaya spent last season with the Saints after being traded from Miami on July 28, 2011 in the Reggie Bush deal. Amaya played in 10 games for the Dolphins after being signed as an undrafted rookie in 2010. Rivera has played in two games for...

Bush says he'll play; Philbin not so definitive

DAVIE, Fla. Reggie Bush vows to play Sunday. But a guy whose opinion is more important is not being as definitive. The Dolphins running back suffered a bruised left knee last Sunday against the New York Jets and didn't play in the second half. He didn't practice Wednesday, but that doesn't matter to Bush. "I'll tell you right now, I'm playing,''...

Miami Dolphins: Week 4 NFL Power Rankings (#29)

Last week: 28 (-1) Record: 1-2 They’ve got a very tough and underrated defense and they’ll play spoiler to a few teams as underdogs (like they almost did last weekend), but their offensive ineptitude is going to keep this team as one of the worst in the league. Ryan Tannehill is not a capable NFL quarterback yet and the team’s offensive leader, running back Reggie Bush, has...

Bush Confident He'll Play

Reggie Bush won't be speaking to the media anymore this week after doing his regular Wednesday press conference, but what reporters saw in the early portion of Thursday's practice spoke volumes in terms of his ability to play this weekend at Arizona. To put it simply, Bush didn't look like a player who missed the second half of last Sunday's game with a knee injury.

The Stop and Go: Monday Morning Greens

  The culmination of this past weekend could not have been more welcoming as a Miami Dolphins fan and a physiotherapy student.  Yes, I was awake until 4:30 in the morning mauling over the broken English of my lab report group mates.  The debacle and misery I felt at the wee hours of Monday morning did not even brush the surface of what transpired Sunday afternoon at Sun Life...

Miami Dolphins at Arizona Cardinals: Week 4 NFL Pick

Miami Dolphins (1-2) at Arizona Cardinals (3-0) The Cardinals are 3-0 right now, but they’re incredibly overrated. Do you really trust anyone on this offense other than Larry Fitzgerald? The defense is great, but I don’t think they’re well rounded enough to make the playoffs in a loaded NFC. They have a negative yards per play differential and rank tied for 30th in offensive...

Reggie Bush Says Darrelle Revis Injury Is Case of 'What Goes Around Comes Around' After Jets Talk Big

Reggie Bush will take the blows. He just wants karma to be a pal and land some hits, too. The Jets spent the days leading up to their Week 3 matchup with the Dolphins talking about finding ways to stop Bush with a physical attack, with coach Rex Ryan saying New York needed to put "hot sauce" on Bush. After Bush left Sunday's game with an injured left knee, Calvin Pace...
