Posted November 14, 2012 on AP on Fox
The Miami Dolphins were the team featured on ''Hard Knocks'' last summer. Funny, the Buffalo Bills haven't needed a TV series title to define their past 12 seasons. This year in Buffalo so far has been no different. Defying the high preseason expectations, the Bills have bumbled their way into an all-too-familiar position of challenging to be the AFC East's least for a fifth consecutive season. That's right, it's the same spot supposedly reserved for the Dolphins after their shortcomings were exposed to HBO's national cable audience. Bills linebacker Nick Barnett wasn't paying attention then. And he couldn't care less about the projections now. ''I don't make money judging expectations and things like that,'' Barnett said, before turning his attention to the state of the Bills.

Dolphins Division: Playoff talk? Beat the Bills first, then we’ll talk

The Miami Dolphins had their playoff hopes punched in the gut on Sunday, losing in embarrassing fashion.  So, for the time being, we’re putting the kibosh on all Dolphins playoff talk.  Right now, this Dolphins’ team does not look like anything that resembles a playoff team.  That can change with a win over the Bills on Thursday night, but until then, the playoff talk is...

Bush, Dolphins need to step it up vs. Bills

DAVIE, Fla. On his last visit to Buffalo, Reggie Bush capped the best day of his NFL career by sliding through the end zone following a fourth-quarter 76-yard touchdown run. Now, hes doing a nosedive. After a phenomenal end to last season and an impressive start to this one, the Dolphins running back lately has been paranormal. At least Bush knows it. I have to apologize to Dolphin...

Reggie Bush struggling, Bills may be perfect remedy

Miami Dolphins running back Reggie Bush hasn't been playing up to expectations lately. Especially his own. Bush was benched in the first quarter of Miami's 37-6 trouncing at the hands of the Tennessee Titans Sunday after he fumbled the ball for the third time this season. "I've never been benched in my life," Bush said Monday, via the South Florida Sun Sentinel...

Miami Dolphins: Week 11 NFL Power Rankings (#16)

Last week: 12 (-4) Record: 4-5 They haven’t had a very good two weeks. Two weeks ago, they were in a playoff spot, 4-3, and road favorites heading to Indianapolis. Now they are 4-5 and dogs in Buffalo. Andrew Luck and taken back the title of best AFC rookie quarterback from Ryan Tannehill (did he ever really have it?) and at the same time they have taken the Dolphins’ former...

Gameday Deciding Factors: Dolphins at Bills

In a crucial divisional bout where neither team can afford a loss, Thursday's primetime matchup between the Buffalo Bills and the Miami Dolphins shouldn't disappoint.

Reggie Bush Speaks Out About Benching, Insults Buffalo Women

After being benched by Miami Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin on Sunday, the team’s starting running back Reggie Bush said everything a politically correct team player should say. He emphasized he understood the decision and that he had to be accountable for the things he could control on the field. Per the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, Bush had this to say: “I’ve never been benched...

Ranking the worst coordinators in Bills' history

How many people connected to the Bills could we put on our hit list for the ineptitude of this franchise? I think we could probably make a list of 100, right? Coaches, players, and GMs. The list goes on and on. For now, I'd like to focus on the Bills' top lieutenants on the sideline who are either in a booth or just standing behind the head coach as the Bills are constantly...

Week 11:Know your enemy- Miami Dolphins

Forget the teases, it is Know your enemy with PhinsPhocus. 1) If you were the Bills' defensive or offensive coordinator, how would you attack the Dolphins? CJ Spiller, CJ Spiller then some more CJ Spiller. He is a special player and needs to get the ball (Editor's note: Tell that to Chan). Dolphins also tend to struggle against Tight ends so I would try and get Scott...

Bills wary of Dolphins' blitz-happy defensive backs

The Miami Dolphins like to get everyone involved in their pass rush. Through nine games this season, 10 different Dolphins defenders have been in on a sack, with defensive end Cameron Wake's 8.5 quarterback-takedowns leading the way. But even Miami's cornerbacks have gotten in on the action. Cornerback Jimmy Wilson has recorded two sacks, and cornerback Nolan Carroll has...

Voices in our Head

I have not come to bury the Buffalo Bills.  No, they have done a fine job of that themselves as usual, thank you. Don’t get me wrong – I want to.  For the kajillionth time in this still young century, the local football team is realistically out of playoff contention before Thanksgiving (but not before wall-to-wall Christmas music.  Gee, thanks STAR 102.5!  Go suck on...
