St. Louis Rams
Looking at the numbers, this doesn’t look good for the Rams. Since the end of the 2007 season, the Rams have won exactly five road games. Yes, this is a different team, but this new team is 0 and 2 on the road. The Rams need to be able to run the ball, or at least threaten the run to have offensive success. Turns out, Miami is the number one defense against the run in the NFL. The fins only allow 61.4 yard per game.
The Dolphins weakness is pass defense. They are 26th against the pass, but the Rams are not at their best when they are pass happy. Furthermore, the Rams just lost their favorite target in the passing game, Danny Amendola. Last week’s seven completion game may not give Rams’ fans warm and fuzzy feelings. With our back-up offensive line still playing, I should also note that Miami is 6th in the NFL in sacks with 15.
I am certain some fans will say: Arizona beat the Dolphins, and we beat Arizona. Unfortunately, the NFL is not that easy. Given the facts above,...

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter via Evan Silva of Rotoworld.com, some teams are interested in trading for St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson, but they don’t want to pay him the money he’s scheduled to make.“Teams would like to trade for Jackson, but no one wants to pay what he makes right now,” said Schefter.This likely means Jackson will finish up this season...
In the first three years of his young NFL career, Miami Dolphins cornerback Sean Smith performed well below the expectations that came when he was selected in the second round of the 2009 draft. The standout cornerback out of Utah put up mediocre numbers to say the least as he recorded 152 combined tackles and three interceptions while not being able to produce a single quarterback...
On a day that Jason Taylor and Zach Thomas were inducted to the Dolphins ring of honour it would figured the Dolphins hold on to win an ugly game with a defensive stand. Ryan Tannehill played another solid game in which he had a 112 QB rating the highest of his career but it was the defense which was the real star of this ugly win.
Despite giving up 462 yards to a pretty average...
Bounty Gate has taken on a life of its own, and even after its resolution, there will probably still be conversation. Fresh off of Roger Goodell re-issuing his bounty punishments, news has leaked out possibly involving another witness to the transgressions. Only thing is, the new key witness says he’s not a witness and was never spoken to. I know it sounds like an episode of The...
The St. Louis Rams come to town this week, and I noticed an interesting stat. The Rams play better at home than they do at away games. I guess we could say that about every team couldn't we? With the...

Rams running back Steven Jackson was healthy, but split time evenly with rookie Daryl Richardson.Fantasy Spin:This is not good news for Jackson's fantasy owners. Miami's defense was ranked No. 1 against the run heading into the game so not much was expected of Jackson, but this new strategy, if ongoing, is a shift that will significantly reduce Jackson's fantasy value.
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. -- Score this one for Mr. Second Choice.
When the Miami Dolphins went looking for a coach after last season, Jeff Fisher was tops on their list. But Fisher spurned the Fish and went to St. Louis.
He returned to Dolphins turf Sunday for the first time since his interview last January. And what happened?
Fisher, a guy coaching his 268th NFL regular-season game...
MIAMI GARDENS – Greg the Leg made it interesting. Not until St. Louis Rams rookie kicker Greg Zuerlein missed from a potential record-setting 66 yards on the game's final play did the Miami Dolphins escape with a 17-14 win on Sunday afternoon at Sun Life Stadium. The Rams moved from their own 3 to the Dolphins' 48-yard-line in eight plays over the final 1:41, but they...
MIAMI (AP) -- Ryan Tannehill threw two touchdown passes and the Miami Dolphins withstood a late rally by the St. Louis Rams to win 17-14 Sunday.
The Rams faced a fourth-and-8 at the Miami 49-yard line with 30 seconds left, and rather than go for a first down, coach Jeff Fisher sent out rookie Greg Zuerlein to try a 66-yard field goal, which missed wide left.
Zuerlein made two field...
We all make choices in life. They range from serious to frivolous: Which car to drive, where to attend college, whom to approach at a nightclub, whom to date, whom to call at 3 a.m. if we need to post bond. We face decisions each day.
Go back to January, and Jeff Fisher had a choice between South Florida sun and a Midwest franchise that had set. The St. Louis Rams were as stable...
via Bleacher ReportI think that Sam Bradford may need to spend some time in the hot tub this evening to cure what will most likely be an incredibly sore back following this short TD run. Karlos Dansby of the Miami Dolphins jumped over the pile and literally bent Sam completely backwards. Check out the video below and you will see how amazing it is that Bradford wasn’t seriously...
The Miami Dolphins' dysfunction took many forms Sunday, including a backward pass by Ryan Tannehill that flew out of bounds for a 7-yard loss. His offensive linemen managed to commit four penalties in a three-play span, while defensive breakdowns and replay overrules were recurring problems. Even so, the Dolphins did enough right to hold off the St. Louis Rams, 17-14.
This Sunday, the Miami Dolphins take on the St. Louis Rams in what will prove to be a good match up for both teams. However, the St. Louis Rams have started to turn some heads with quality victories over the Redskins, Cardinals, and Seahawks. The Rams feature a tough defense anchored by their always up to no good Safety in Cortland Finnegan and incredible play by Robert Quinn...
