The Miami Dolphins are treating their game on Sunday against the Patriots as if it were a playoff game…..they should be, because that’s exactly what it is.  If the Dolphins lose, not only will their record fall to 5-7, but their record in conference will fall to 3-6.  Even if the Dolphins managed to win out, they would finish 9-7 BUT would only be 6-6 in conference, which probably won’t be enough to win any tiebreakers.  The Dolphins are taking the game seriously, but it’s going to take a near-perfect effort to beat the Pats on Sunday. Today, we wanted to share our Miami Musings with you.  We found a few Dolphins blogs that had stories that we wanted to share with you and give our thoughts on.  These stories include a closer look at the Dolphins playcalling against the Seahawks, Big Papa Pump taking shots at the Jets’ Fireman Ed, an awesome Forum site, and the Dolphins signing a new cornerback. Creative Playcalling – ThePhinsider.com Earlier this week, we told you that we liked some of the playcalling by Mike Sherman against the Seahawks.  We didn’t love all of it, but we specifically liked the ‘end around’ action.  In the above article ThePhinsider.com did a great job of breaking down the plays we were referring to.  Mike Sherman lined up the offense in a similar formation, using similar motions, but calling different plays out of it.  This playcalling confused the Seahawks defense and allowed the Dolphins to pick up some big plays.  This is exactly the type of creativity we need to see more of as it makes the Dolphins offense less predictable.  (cont’d on page 2, click below)
