Kissing Suzy Kolber:
This week’s episode of “Hard Knocks” was a vast improvement over the week before. Even if this season suffers for a lack of big personalities, the series is always able to tease quotes and tidbits out of players that we can use to make fun of them for the rest of the season, if not longer. And so it will be with Ryan Tannehill not knowing how the NFL divisions and conferences work. The big dummy.
We also got a pick into the process that went into the Vontae Davis trade, which was executed with as much shrewdness as you might expect out of Jeff Ireland. There are also amusing moments with Richie Incognito being a dick and one the story of how one of the two rookies paling around got lost at sea and nearly died.
Anyway, you know it was a better episode because we got back up to 10 things we can highlight for this week. So let’s get to ‘em:

The Miami Dolphins and former Texas A&M quarterback told backup quarterback Matt Moore he was "so lost on the divisions."
"I know our division and...
As a rookie in the NFL, Ryan Tannehill still has a ton to learn. Between memorizing the plays, adjusting to lifestyle changes and dealing with an incredibly steeper level of competition, the transition from college to the pros is always a challenge for any rookie quarterback. However, most rookies likely already know what division every team is in. Understanding the geography of...
Arm Strength: X. Arm Accuracy: X. Defense Reading: X. 6 foot 4, 210 pounds: Check. Seriously, that is the only reason he was even considered a prospect, and then he suddenly goes top-10 due to Mike "worst halftime speech" Sherman and the Dolphins.
PS - Hot wife: X. Blonde Peggy Olsen is just as much overrated as this slot WR.
The Miami Dolphins front office and coaching staff know that the team is not good enough right now to compete in 2012. The Dolphins coaches have watched the poor preseason performances we all have. The Dolphins roster, right now is simply not full of talent. For this reason, Jeff Ireland and his staff will be [...]
The buzz surrounding Hard Knocks has dissapated since the dramatic release of Chad Johnson from the Miami Dolphins. On this week's episode though we got a classic Hard Knocks moment showing Dolphins rookie QB Ryan Tannehill channeling his inner Ryan Lochte. Watch as Tannehill tries to vaguely guess which NFL team is in which NFL division, saying the Kansas City Chiefs...
Today on ESPN Radio, hosts Mike Salk and John Kincade took turns taking shots at the Dolphins after last night'sepisodes Hard Knocks. Whether it was Vontae David calling his Grama or Ryan Tannehill not knowing the NFL divisions, the two ESPN radio hosts thought that last night's episode was another reason why the Hard Knocks and the Dolphins might not be the best fit....
If you are a Miami Dolphins fan, I’m going to throw out a statement that I’ll bet covers about 90% of our fan base at this point in the season, ready for it? HC Joe Philbin and GM Jeff Ireland are not atop your good list. Ok I said it, now are you ready to [...]
Throughout this season, Dolphins fans Vinny Ginardi and super-guest blogger Patrick Dillon will discuss each episode of the HBO series Hard Knocks. The two will exchange their thoughts on each episode and the ins and outs of the 2012 Miami Dolphins. They are hoping this will not be the most entertaining part of the season.
Vinny Ginardi: Ted Ginn. Brandon Marshall. Vontae...
Congratulations to the Miami Dolphins for providing more headlines off the field rather than on it this preseason! The preseason is finally over, but not without embarrasments exascerbated by being on national TV on Tuesdays.As tough as it was to watch last night's last preseason contest, I mustered up the courage to lower the volume a bit on my laptop so I didn't have...
The Dallas Cowboys and Miami Dolphins squared off on Wednesday night in Arlington in both teams final preseason game for 2012. It was the final game before Dallas and Miami make their roster cuts down to 53 players. Typically in the final preseason game the starters sit while the second and third team players see extensive playing time so the coaches can better evaluate them.
Every once in a while, we have teams that seem to implode once they're eliminated from the playoff race. Those types of implosions raise questions about the team's intent, but they ultimately fade away once the playoffs begin.
Now, the Dolphins are causing some, including players on their own team, to question their motives in 2012.
