Some games – like last week’s showdown with the Oakland Raiders – I’m EXTREMELY confident about my picks because the matchups favor the Miami Dolphins, or a team’s strengths plays directly into Miami’s hands.
Other games I’m not so certain because of the challenges that a game might present. Especially when it comes to team’s that can air it out.
I’ve been on a hot streak for the past eight weeks, picking the right outcome for the Dolphins since the Oct. 23rd Denver disaster (losing to Tim Tebow isn’t so shameful these days).
However, today’s game against a talented, but sloppy Philadelphia Eagles team concerns your Mob Boss. While I picked the Dolphins to win, fueling the “Keep Sparano Campaign” the players have mounted, I’m not comfortable with the selection.
And truth is…. I’ve never been comfortable with it because of Philadelphia’s speed, and ability to produce big plays. Speed is the Achilles heel of the Dolphins, which wants to beat teams up with their physicality.

DAVIE, FL Tony Sparano was fired Monday as head coach of the Miami Dolphins. The only shock was that it took so long.
Now, Dolphins fans anxiously wait to see if general manager Jeff Ireland loses his job.
Ireland should be the next to go so that the Dolphins' house-cleaning and road to redemption will he made complete. But apparently that's not going to happen.
MIAMI GARDENS — Today’s game will feature two teams that should look a lot better than their 4-8 records suggest.

The Miami Dolphins announced today that they have fired head coach Tony Sparano. Sparano is the second head coach to be fired today (Kansas City’s Todd Haley) and the third so far this season (Jacksonville’s Jack Del Rio).
This move was expected and isn’t a surprise to anybody following the NFL this year fairly closely. Sparano’s Dolphins started the season 0-7 before inexplicably...

In what will be one of the final Scouting Notebook's of the 2011 Season (BUT, similar, mini-pieces multiple times a week will be coming), I'll take a look at the type of football player I really don't look forward to discussing: the ESPN ratings boosters, meaning Tim Tebow.

One sack cost the Miami Dolphins their quarterback. Another resulted in a safety. With the last one, the team matched a franchise record for bad blocking.
Man, it felt good to get an ugly win in Miami...(if you can actually call any defensive effort ugly when it yields nine sacks, a key strip-fumble and a game-changing INT---)...
