This will be the final installment of the positional breakdowns of all the Miami Dolphins player units. I want to thank Kenny, Patrick, Todd, and Shawn for doing their part in this effort. Mike came on board after this segment had started, and that is the reason we did not see a write up from him.
Not to worry, though, Mike has been staying busy writing about the 15 most important players for this team.
Last year the Miami Dolphins took Ryan Tannehill with their first round pick in the draft (eighth overall). During OTAs and preseason he showed the new coaching staff enough to be the Dolphins starter, and he played in all 16 games.
2012 Stat Line
Completion Percentage: 58.3
Yards per game: 205.9
Passer Rating: 76.1
His passer rating of 76.1 is ranked 27th in the league, but his passer rating in the fourth quarter was 17th in the league. As I look back on those ...
BEST OF MAXIM
While he played virtually none on either offense or defense, the Miami Dolphins had a real weapon last season in returner Marcus Thigpen. Thigpen scored the first touchdown of 2012 for Miami, a 72-yard punt return against the Houston Texans in the season opener. Thigpen has made an effort this offseason to work himself into the rotation on offense, but whether he spends much time...
Dolphins fans, welcome to the dog days of summer. Now that the Heat have repeated as NBA champions and the NHL season is over, the only team South Florida has left to root for is the Marlins….Anyway, there is absolutely no Dolphins news to write about because the team is essentially on vacation from now until July 20th when training camp opens. Wait a minute….did I just write...
The mere possibility of Miami Dolphins second year quarterback Ryan Tannehill rushing for 500 yards was tantalizing enough to explore the fantasy football ramifications of the team’s use of the read-option.
That number, of course, was extrapolated from the Dolphins’ deployment of the read-option package over the final month of the 2012 regular season. The conclusion, as told...
While the kings of the castle, the New England Patriots look as vulnerable as they have in 12 years, the Miami Dolphins feel this could be their year win the division. The Dolphins have expressed all offseason they felt ready to make the next step and going into July before training camp, their feelings haven’t changed. A torrid free agency spending spree that landed the top...
Miami Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace has been labeled the fastest receiver in the league, but also labeled a one-trick pony by some, a label that some teammates jus don't see. "It's not, 'If I can't get the deep ball, I can't do anything else,' " cornerback Brent Grimes said, via The Miami Herald. "He has good hands, can run other routes...
Everyone knows how good Miami Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace is as a deep threat. In fact, since Wallace as been in the NFL, he leads the league in catches of 40-yards or more. While many might think that Wallace can only be used as a deep receiver, you’d be wrong according to his teammates. Via the Miami Herald, his teammates praise Wallace for his ability to catch the ball on...
Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald stated in his column Sunday that any contract extension talks between the Miami Dolphins and Reshad Jones have yet to begin.
Here’s why this is so important. Jones pledged to miss OTA’s this year unless the Dolphins vowed to sit down and talk about new paper. At the last minute, the Dolphins agreed and Jones showed up happily.
Now training camp...
Miami Dolphins’ safety Reshad Jones had his best year last year since being drafted in the fifth round out of Georgia in 2010 and is headed into the last year of his rookie contract. Jones feigned the idea of a hold out by actually holding out from some of the team’s voluntary off-season workouts. To avoid fines, Jones re-joined the team with hope that his attendance would spark...
