Found April 27, 2013 on The Victory Formation:

Don Shula retired with the most coaching wins in the history of the NFL, a record he still holds today, and it is a record that is quite unlikely to be broken, just because most coaches don't get hired at the young age of 33 and stick around for 33 years.

When the comissioner announced that the Miami Dolphins had acquired the third overall pick, the first player that came to mind was offensive tackle Lane Johnson. I know I wasn't alone there. Based on the Dolphins draft strategy of the past, it seemed likely that the team would once again draft for need and upgrade at the most glaring hole on the roster. Instead, Jeff Ireland...

Dolphins pass on Ryan Swope for a kicker?

Texas A&M fans know the connection Miami Dolphins Ryan Tannehill had with Ryan Swope. Swope was Tannehill’s escape value at A&M, because when everyone else was covered, Swope was open. So it’s no wonder why as the 2013 NFL draft closed in that many draft analysts mocked Tannehill to the Dolphins. The drum beat became even louder when the Dolphins traded away Davone Bess...

Mike Wallace Is Jesus, Apparently

On Thursday, Nike did an official unveiling of the new Dolphins uniforms that leaked earlier in the week. The banner image for said unveiling included an image of Mike Wallace running on water. Pretty neat trick for a wide receiver, if not particularly useful in the NFL. If only the league let Miami install water hazards on their field, that could be of more use. Unless this is just...
