It’s finally back.
As if I even need to mention it, the NFL season is back in full swing. After the first batch of games, it appears as if it will be another hugely defense-heavy year for Penn Staters in the NFL.
As of posting, there are only 4 Nittany Lions on NFL roster in offensive, stat-recording positions (Sorry, lineman!) and of those, only 1 is a starter.
If there’s any fan base that can appreciate a solid defensive showing, though, it’s us Penn Staters. Luckily for us, in week 1 there was plenty of outstanding defense to be seen.
See how all of the Nittany Lions did on opening weekend after the jump!
Pat Devlin, Dolphins — No stats recorded
Michael Robinson, Seahawks — No stats recorded
Evan Royster, Redskins — 2 rushes for 10 yards
Jordan Norwood, Browns — Inactive (Coach’s decision)
Dennis Landolt, Jets — Inactive (Knee)
Rich Ohrnberger, Cardinals
A.Q. Shipley, Colts

DELAYING THE INEVITABLE
The unemployed wide receiver reportedly is attempting to delay his divorce from Evelyn Lozada by refusing to sign paperwork or appear at proceedings.
Sure, Ryan Tannehill’s wife does a great job playing the South Beach hottie, but that doesn’t translate to wins for the Dolphins. We all knew it was coming when the Miami Dolphins selected quarterback Ryan Tannehill with the eighth selection of the 2012 NFL draft, but we also knew he wasn’t ready to start in [...]
The Miami Dolphins’ rookie quarterback, Ryan Tannehill has a problem with passes getting tipped at the line of scrimmage. In Sunday’s 30-10 beat down by the Texans, Tannehill had six passes batted down, according to Dolphins offensive coordinator Mike Sherman. Tipped pass are not good. But they are exponentially worse when they are batted into [...]
According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland could be out of a job at the end of the season if his team continues to play the way they did today.
Owner Stephen Ross must decide whether Jeff Ireland is the right man long-term for the franchise’s most important position, aside from quarterback.

The Dolphins must emerge from 2012 knowing exactly what they have in Ryan Tannehill, but also critical is this: Owner Stephen Ross must decide whether Jeff Ireland is the right man long-term for the franchise's most important position, aside from quarterback. Ross made clear he expects a winning team in 2012, though some of Ireland's moves suggest he's far more concerned...

In the NFL debut of Coach Joe Philbin and quarterback Ryan Tannehill, the Dolphins hardly could have drawn a tougher assignment than the Houston Texans — on the road no less. Houston is considered by most one of the favorites in the AFC in 2012 and the Dolphins will go into this game as the biggest underdogs on opening day. But is a victory impossible? Stranger things have happened.
The Houston Texans opened up their regular season yesterday against the Miami Dolphins at Reliant Stadium. The Dolphins, with rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill, came into this game hoping to do to the Texans what Mark Sanchez did to them his rookie season and win his first career football game. It’s obvious that the Texans remembered that game and were not about to allow it to...

One went to Wisconsin and another went to Texas A&M. One has the keys to the franchise as the "People's Choice" and the other just plays hard nosed defense for a Super Bowl contender.Ryan Tannehill's debut Ends on a sour note with 3 interceptions and zero touchdowns. Tannehill although kept is uniform slightly clean, did not improve on some of the key adjustments...

Week 1 has now come and gone and the Dolphins fan base has been left pretty discouraged about the outcome of this season. While the concern is obviously more than warranted, it’s time to sit back and realize there is still a lot of football to be played this season.
The Dolphins played a legitimate Super Bowl contender in the Houston Texans and get a much more realistic test in...
