Anyone watching television in the last few months is well aware of the fact there is a Presidential election looming on the horizon. Then again, that depends what programing you are watching. The Miami Dolphins have suffered local blackout issues in recent years after fielding underachieving teams. The NFL offered up teams a new deal which allowed the blackout restrictions to be lifted with only 85% of their non-premium tickets to be sold prior to kickoff in order to have the broadcast shown in their home team.
Two teams in the southern half of Florida, the Dolphins as well as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers opted into the program. The Buccaneers were still unable to sell out for their home opener.

Dolphins CEO Mike Dee told the Sun Sentinel this afternoon, “As we’v...

DAVIE, Fla. In todays NFL, its tough to score in the red zone the area inside the opponents 20-yard line without some basic weapons.
Heres the checklist: a head-banging running back, a space-clearing tight end, a wide receiver who can go up and get the ball, a crafty quarterback who is proficient at throwing the fade or the back-shoulder pass, and an offensive line that can...

Miami running back Daniel Thomas (concussion) has passed concussion tests but he still won't play Sunday, according to 640 AM Miami.Fantasy Spin:Rookie Lamar Miller will serve as Reggie Bush's backup after he was inactive for Week 1. Bush is really the only Dolphins player you want to be starting in fantasy at this point.
The Miami Dolphins probably have the worst PR team in the NFL as it seems they just can’t keep the team out of the tabloids. This afternoon ProFootballTalk.com reported the Dolphins plan on holding a pretty much impossible halftime contest offering $10,000 to a lucky fan if they are able to hit a 60 yard field goal.
Most NFL kickers can’t kick it from 60 yards yet the...
Miami Dolphins running back Daniel Thomas did not practice Friday and was listed on the team's injury report as out against the Oakland Raiders with a concussion. Thomas was injured in the season opener at the Houston Texans. That means Reggie Bush should get the bulk of the carries for an otherwise inexperienced Miami backfield. Defensive tackle Tony McDaniel (knee) is also out on Sunday.
Lance Alstodt won $1 million back in 1997 at the NFL Pro Bowl, when he kicked a 35-yard field goal in a halftime contest. If you have ever been to an NFL game, there are contests like this all the time, and most of the time, people miss from even closer in. In fact, the [...]

When Ron Bartell was injured it was a huge loss for the...

The offense was horrendous, putrid and every other hanus word that is in the dictionary.Yes, I stated that in my recent power rankings, and it should be stated that Darren McFadden hauled in 13 passes in the home loss.
Carson Palmer was abysmal although the number won’t state such, but it didn’t help matters that their top targets were inactive.
After disastrous season openers, the Oakland Raiders and Miami Dolphins came away echoing the same sentiment: We've got to do a better job.
