Found August 09, 2013 on Phin Nation:
Alright Dolphins fans and football fans everywhere, the NFL is officially back.  Well, back in the sense that you can turn on the TV and you can find highlights and actual games (meaningless as they are) on television.  BUT, preseason games can be a bit boring, can’t they?  After all, with the exception of the 3rd preseason game, the starting units usually play a few series or MAYBE  a quarter or two.  We’ve come up with a way to make ANY NFL preseason game a little bit more exciting. Photo Courtesy of Dolphins.com If you’re like us, you are already hyped up about your favorite NFL team.  After all, training camp is when every team thinks they have a chance (unless you’re a Jets fan and you have a buttfumbler as your starting quarterback).  But in reality, most of these preseason games consist of players that are fighting for their football lives, trying to be the last guy NOT to get cut. Usually, by the time the 4th quarter of a preseason game rolls around, we’re watching guys that were great in college, but just can’t cut it in the NFL.  SOOOOO, we thought it would be a good idea to make the games a little more interesting, no matter who is on the field, by creating the official rules for the Preseason Football Drinking Game. Before we get to the rules, let us say that if you are playing this game, you should already have a designated driver.  Do not drink and drive!  Also, don’t take these too literally, we don’t want anyone getting alcohol poisoning.  If you do not like alcohol, you can substitute milk (but don’t overdose!).  So grab your favorite beer or cocktail and let’s get to the rules: Penalty flag is thrown - Take 2 sips of your drink (this will happen a lot because preseason football is sloppy, especially in the first few games) Referee stutters and/or messes up the announcement of a penalty - Take 3 sips of your drink (if it’s Ed Hochuli, take 3 sips while doing a bicep curl with your jug of laundry detergent) Camera pans to a players wife/girlfriend - Take a sip of your drink through a straw…it’s more lady like Camera pans to the team owner - Take 3 chugs of your drink and flush a 20 dollar bill down the toilet.  The $20 is symbolic of the money your owner probably wasted in free agency on players that won’t help your team (See: Stephen Ross and the money he’s spent on the Dolphins offensive line over the past 5 years….cough, Marc Colombo, cough) (Official Rules continued on page 2, CLICK HERE)

Dolphins Working Jordan in Slowly

Jordan in his NFL debut on Sunday. (Photo: BleacherReport) Not everyone was happy with Miami Dolphins rookie Dion Jordan's performance in Miami's 24-20 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Sunday's Hall of Fame Game. Fortunately for the Dolphins, the majority of those unhappy are opposing quarterbacks and offensive tackles. Without playing until the early parts of the...

Miami Dolphins Top Pick Dion Jordan Unimpressive Through First Two Outings

Yes,I know it’s only preseason. That, however, does not change the fact that the Miami Dolphins spent the third overall pick of the 2013 NFL Draft on what they thought would be an impact, pass-rushing defensive end in Dion Jordan. Through two preseason games, Jordan hasn’t shown to be anything close to that. In fact, without watching the games, you’d have to look twice at...

Dolphins owner Ross looking for improvement in '13

For an owner who has endured four consecutive losing seasons, Miami Dolphins boss Stephen Ross sounds remarkably patient. He resisted any temptation Wednesday to say he expected a double-digit win total or playoff berth this year, even after he committed about $150 million to free-agent acquisitions over the offseason. Instead, Ross said he wants to see progress and growth in the...

Ryan Tannehill's final drive an encouraging sign for Dolphins

Ryan Tannehill was one failed drive away from hearing a work's worth of criticism. After a mediocre preseason debut in Miami's preseason opener, and a four-interception day last Tuesday in practice, the Dolphins quarterback looked really crummy to start his team's 27-3 win Friday night at Jacksonville. But Tannehill then redeemed himself with an impressive touchdown...

Stephen Ross intent on making Dolphins a model franchise

DAVIE, Fla. -- Perhaps the Miami Dolphins one day will win enough to popularize their own motto. But for now owner Stephen Ross is having to borrow from late Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis. "I think you really want to see that you're committed to winning, you're committed to excellence," Ross told reporters Wednesday at the team's practice facility. "...

Observations from Dolphins 27-3 win over Jaguars

The Miami Dolphins got themselves back on track with a 27-3 rout of the Jacksonville Jaguars in their second of five preseason games. With the starters playing for a few more series than they did in the Hall of Fame game, it gave us a clearer picture of where the team currently stands.  While its tough to get excited about beating a 2-14 team from a year ago in a meaningless...

Tannehill stronger in second outing

Ryan Tannehill played a little longer and a lot smoother in his second preseason game. The Jacksonville Jaguars can only hope Blaine Gabbert will do the same. Tannehill completed 5 of 9 passes for 75 yards, including a 22-yard touchdown pass to newcomer Dustin Keller, and the Dolphins thumped the Jaguars 27-3 in a preseason game Friday night. The Dolphins (1-1) managed just one...

Ross' Remarks

Dolphins owner Stephen Ross made his annual visit to the media room at the Doctors Hospital Training Facility at Nova Southeastern University Wednesday and touched on several different topics during a press conference that lasted a little more than 23 minutes.

Miami Dolphins 2013 Fantasy Football Projections

QB Ryan Tannehill (Miami) Ryan Tannehill gets two new weapons to work with in Mike Wallace and Dustin Keller. Wallace may be overrated, but he’ll give them an upgrade on the outside, as Keller will at tight end. They have serious issues at left tackle, which could cancel some of that out, but I do expect Tannehill to improve on last year’s numbers, even if only because he has...

Ryan Tannehill sharp as Dolphins pound Jaguars

Defense shows progress in Jaguars' loss to Dolphins

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Miami Dolphins' 27-3 victory Friday night over the Jacksonville Jaguars wasn't so much a reflection on how far the Dolphins have progressed as it was a commentary on how far the Jaguars still need to go. Aside from a 23-yard field goal by Josh Scobee at the end of a 16-play drive engineered by second-string quarterback Chad Henne, the first game...
