There was a point in practice last week, during the bye, where it was clear the Miami Dolphins players were still into it. Jake Long had apparently done something to Marvin Mitchell during an inside run drill repetition that got the backup linebacker so hot he not only went after Long, the team’s three-time Pro Bowl left tackle once, but twice. At the conclusion of the first run to the left Mitchell needed to be restrained by defensive end Randy Starks. But he clearly didn’t cool down enough during his timeout because on his very next rep Mitchell, who produced a sack against the Chargers, made sure he ended up giving Long the business. That exchange prompted fists to fly and created a pile up that featured offensive players versus the defense. We usually can’t see what happens during those pile up but I do recall Richie Incognito, who was once labeled one of the NFL’s dirtiest players, walking away from the pile with his hands in the air. I’m told practices were spirited last week ...

Miami Musings: Don’t suck (for Luck) against Jets, Irsay > Ross, & Who’s to Blame?

It’s seemed like an eternity since the Miami Dolphins last played in an NFL game…doesn’t it?  It probably feels that way because so much has happened with the Dolphins since they lost to the Chargers on October 2nd.  The Dolphins lost their starting QB (and signed Sage Rosenfels), the coach’s seat got a little hotter, [...]

Miami Dolphins PLAYERS that need to step up

To say the Miami Dolphins have been disappointing would be a monumental understatement.  Since the Dolphins last game, a loss to the Chargers, much of the attention has been placed on the Dolphins Coach, Tony Sparano.  Sparano has gotten much of the attention because many Dolphins fans and ‘experts’ thought that the Chargers loss would [...]

Mike Pouncey said Tim Tebow’s start vs. Dolphins “is faith”

Mike Pouncey is an admitted Tim Tebow discipline. Mike Pouncey says Tim Tebow starting vs. Dolphins "is faith." That’s how the Miami Dolphins’ starting center knew Tim Tebow’s day as an NFL starter in 2011 would eventually come. Pouncey monitors the progress of his former Florida Gators teammates, so he saw Tebow play the second half of Denver’s game last Sunday...

Brandon Marshall Plans to Be Ejected Against Jets by Second Quarter of Monday Night Game

Dolphins WR expects to be ejected vs. Jets

DAVIE, Fla. While it's uncertain exactly when Miami receiver Brandon Marshall expects to be ejected Monday during the Dolphins' game at the New York Jets, he didn't leave much else in doubt. Seemingly out of nowhere Thursday, Marshall said he hasn't been himself this season for the 0-4 Dolphins. He touched upon his passion for the game and whether he's been...

Outsider’s View: Miami Dolphins – 2011 Week 6

I know some of you are fond of Football Outsiders, (as am I) so once the season gets underway and trends start developing, looking at an opponent’s rankings on Football Outsiders helps to give fans some perspective on the Jets opponent for this weekend and what to expect. (As a heads up, negative percentages are good on defense, bad on offense & specials) Pass Offense: 14...

Miami Dolphins lead state of sadness in Florida football

It truly is one of the NFL’s better, bitter rivalries by any measure, and might be the best of all if one starts with the animus each city’s fans feel for the other. Welcome to Jets Week, Dolfans, except this latest renewal of Miami vs. New York limps in with the usual bravado nowhere to be found
