Close your eyes and think about the offense you wanted the Miami Dolphins to have at the beginning of the season.
DIDN’T I SAY CLOSE YOUR EYES….
Dolphins QB Matt Moore has a 87.6 rating that has him ranked 10th in the NFL.
We’re talking about the type of offense owner Steve Ross wanted, and boldly demanded that a ground-and-pound loving Tony Sparano build for his team.
That unit needed to be able to run the ball effectively, doing better than the 3.7 yards per carry average Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams produced last year.
CHECK…. This year’s team is averaging 4.0 yards per carry and has scored 10 rushing touchdowns. Reggie Bush has already eclipsed his career high, and rookie Daniel Thomas has rushed for 504 yards in an injury-plagued season.
The passing game needed to come alive, producing more big plays, quick strikes and chunk yardage than Dan Henning’s dink and dunk special.
I’ll leave another quarterback out of this, but new starter Matt Moore is rated the 10th best quarterb...

What a finish, the 2011 Miami Dolphins are roaring to the finish line, not vice versa, with a screeching halt.
Not since Coach Tony Sparano and QB Chad Pennington took the AFC by storm in 2008 have the Dolphins played with this much vigor, talent, and vitality.

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly from Miami’s 34-14 win over Oakland: The Good * Matt Moore’s decision making: Moore’s numbers weren’t stellar – just 13-of-25 passing for 162 yards and a 85.8 passer rating – but the only number that truly matters is zero, the number of turnovers he committed. In the Dolphins’ [...]

Oakland Raiders – 14, Miami Dolphins – 34
The Raiders were the latest team to find out these Dolphins aren’t the same ones from a month ago that lost seven straight games. Carson Palmer (275 total yards, 2 TDs, 1 INT) had a rough go of it early, but salvaged his fantasy day with a couple of late touchdown passes. Matt Moore (184 total yards, 2 TDs) played a very efficient...
What do Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Tony Romo, Matt Schaub, Eli Manning, Alex Smith, Ben Roethlisberger and Matt Stafford all have in common with the Dolphins’ Matt Moore?
The way the Miami Dolphins have been playing lately – at least since November – its not difficult to make the argument the Dolphins are one of the scariest teams in the NFL.
They certainly aren’t the Green Bay Packers, but who really wants to play this sub. 500 team, which always keeps it close, and is finally beginning to execute?
Quarterback Matt Moore has one of the hottest...
