The Miami Dolphins are 3-0, with the chance to start this season off with 4 straight wins if they can get past the New Orleans Saints. The biggest reason for the Dolphins great start has to be the progression of Ryan Tannehill at the quarterback position. One person especially impressed with Tannehill is Mike Wallace.  The big money free agent signing for the Dolphins says “Tannehill is ahead of where he expected to him be.” “I think he’s a really good player. I think he’s ahead of where I thought he would be,” said Wallace. “He’s a smart player. Whatever it is, the hype and stuff we’ve been getting the past week or two, he’s like, ‘I don’t care about it.’  He’s the same guy. He goes to work and prepares the same way. I think that’s going to make him a very good player. He doesn’t get caught up in the hype. He continues back to work and worries about what he did wrong. He’s not worried about the good throws he made, he’s worried about the ones he missed. As long as our quarterback is working like that, we’ll be fine.”

A complete breakdown of the Dolphins next opponent; the Saints

The Miami Dolphins game against the New Orleans Saints is keeping me up later than I’d like to be. All I can say for sure it’s that I wish we would’ve played them last year instead of this year, but it is what it is thus we must move forward with our schedule. I took a look at this game 2 days ago, based on Miami’s success against Atlanta and now, as the Monday night game...

Dolphins Gameplan: Protect Tannehill and control the clock

The Miami Dolphins have an extra day to prepare (and heal) before traveling to New Orleans to take on the 3-0 Saints.  The Dolphins coaching staff had better come up with a solid game plan because this game will not be an easy one.  Heading to New Orleans is never easy because they have Drew Brees and the #6 offense in the NFL.  What’s worse?  The Saints also have the #4 defense...

All the Dolphins do is score touchdowns

There are a variety of reasons why the Miami Dolphins are number one at red zone scoring efficiency this year with an 87.5% touchdown conversion rate.  The first reason is obvious and Brian Hartline describes it with just two words, “better players”.  Miami’s three scores on the road against the Indianapolis Colts outline are proof of a more explosive line-up.

Pitiful Picks for week 4 of the NFL season

On this Miami Dolphins-less Sunday, we get to watch games from around the NFL.  The Dolphins might be playing, but rooting against other teams, that could be playoff competition, would be wise.  Yes, it’s still only week 4 in the NFL, but the Dolphins should be rooting for every NFC team that’s playing against an AFC team. They probably also want to root against the rest of...

Best friends become foes as Dolphins meet Saints

Just across the Mississippi River from the world-famous French Quarter is neighborhood called Algiers, where Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace and Saints cornerback Keenan Lewis became playmates around age 5. Their friendship went beyond sports. Wallace didn't even play football until Lewis persuaded him to go out for their high school team at O. Perry Walker. A decade later, they...

Florida Newspaper’s Front Page Promotes Miami-New England Game, Even Though Dolphins Play Saints (Photo)

The Dolphins are tied with the Patriots atop the AFC East with matching 3-0 records, making for an exciting matchup when the two finally get together. Although, that won’t be for a few weeks. One Florida newspaper appears to have jumped the gun on the matchup, though. The Sun Sentinel, based in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., printed its morning paper on Sunday, promoting the Dolphins’...

Dolphins ready for their shot at Monday night glory

DAVIE, Fla. -- Don Jones remembers how big Monday Night Football was when growing up in tiny Town Creek, Ala. "It's a small country town," Jones said. "There are 1,400 people there. I'd say 1,359 were watching. It's a big little sports town." Well, beef that number up. "Hopefully, all 1,400 will be watching (Monday). I'm serious. All 1...

ZB Game of the Week: Dolphins at Saints

Heading into the season I would not have expected to be looking forward to this game as much as I am. The Saints were clearly going to be better than in 2012, but undefeated and dominant, particularly on defense, is unexpected. The Dolphins were also going to be better. But so far the fish have stuck right with New England for tops in the AFC East. Monday Night Football does not...

Wallace: Saints' defense is 'assignment-sound'

BY NICK ST. DENISThe New Orleans Saints' defense has been disciplined through the first three games of the season.Their mere 15 penalties -- which is among the fifth-fewest in the NFL -- is an indication of that. An even bigger indication is their 12.7 points-against per game."Guys are assignment-sound out there. Everybody is where they need to be," Miami Dolphins wide...

Saints gearing up for Dolphins' leaky O-line

BY SEAN DONOVANNo quarterback has been sacked this season more than the Miami Dolphins' Ryan Tannehill, and his Week 4 opponent has taken notice.The Dolphins travel to New Orleans in preparation for a Monday night matchup with the Saints, whose defense has singled out Tannehill's inconsistent protection as an area to focus on."We're definitely chomping at the bit...

Know your enemy: an interview with Saints Nation Blog

What frightens you about the Dolphins offense?  The Dolphins have Mike Wallace and you...
