Found November 01, 2012 on The Football Fan Spot:
Last week: 12 (+2) Record: 4-3 If the season ended today, Miami and Indianapolis would be in the playoffs in the crappy AFC. Those two teams square off this week in Indianapolis in a game that could have playoff implications. I have Miami ranked higher right now. They rank 21st in yards per play differential and 19th in rate of sustaining drives, while Indianapolis ranks 27th and 18th respectively. Miami also holds the edge in points differential +24 to -35, but the game is in Indianapolis. Studs QB Matt Moore: 11 of 19 for 131 yards and a touchdown, 1 batted pass, 1 throw away, 1 drop, 100.9 adjusted QB rating, pressured on 4 of 20 drop backs (1 sack, 1 of 3, 1 throw away, 1 touchdown) LG Richie Incognito: Did not allow a pressure on 27 pass block snaps, 1 penalty, run blocked for 43 yards on 7 attempts, 1 penalty C Mike Pouncey: Did not allow a pressure on 27 pass block snaps, 1 penalty, run blocked for 28 yards on 4 attempts RT Jonathan Martin: Did not allow a pressure on 27 pass...

Tannehill will face Luck this week but could be pulled by coaches

Ryan Tannehill (knee) is expected to be on a short leash if he gets the green light for Sunday’s game versus the Colts. A source tells the Palm Beach Post that the coaching staff won’t be afraid to go to the bullpen for Matt Moore “if Tannehill’s knee inhibits his play.” This is just to be careful with their very promising quarterback. It will be interesting to see how...

Dolphins' Bush says if Jets don't like him, tough

The Miami Dolphins don't play the archrival New York Jets again this year, yet the barbs keep coming.

Dolphins like Tannehill more than Colts' Luck

DAVIE, Fla. -- The "Suck for Luck" campaign was in full force a year ago. The Miami Dolphins were 0-7 and in position to land Andrew Luck with the top pick in the NFL draft. It didn't happen. The Dolphins suddenly turned matters around and finished 6-10. Indianapolis ended up with the highly touted quarterback. But the Dolphins have come out OK. They managed to get...

Mike Pouncey: Ryan Tannehill is NFL’s best rookie QB, will be like Tom Brady

You could easily make the argument that Ryan Tannehill has exceeded expectations as the starting quarterback of the Miami Dolphins this season. His TD-to-interception ratio of 4-to-6 is underwhelming, but Tannehill’s quarterback rating of 75.8 is not all that bad for a rookie leading an offense. Most importantly, he has played well enough to lead the Dolphins to a 4-3 record. But...
