Dolphins special teams focus on fundamentals

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) Miami's mishaps on special teams last week against the Buffalo Bills taught the Dolphins a valuable lesson about the importance of that third phase of the game. It's not often that a team allows a blocked punt, a kickoff return for a touchdown and muffs a punt deep in its own territory. So Miami's special teams coordinator, Darren Rizzi, has made sure his unit had...

Buffalo Stampedes Miami (Not So) Special Teams.

The 2014 Miami Dolphins went to Buffalo on week two and faced a tough defensive line match up versus even the most cohesively established offensive line units, (of which Miami does not yet possess). The Bills have probably the best DL unit that the Dolphins will face over the entirety of the 2014 season. Miami's newly acquired, inspirational number one running back Knowshon Moreno...

Is Seattle Seahawks punter Jon Ryan the best in the NFL?

When Bleacher Report released its rankings of the top 32 NFL punters in April, they put Jon Ryan of the Seattle Seahawks at number 16 overall. Brandon Fields of the Miami Dolphins was ranked number one. I will be the first to admit that I’m not an expert on punting but I’m not a fan of the methodology they used. In the article the knocks against Ryan were a lack of control: “He...

Dolphins' Brandon Fields doesn't punt on staying active in community

It was Week 14 of the 2010 NFL season and the Dolphins were taking on the Jets in the Meadowlands during a torrential downpour. After scoring 10 points in the first quarter, Miami didn't put up a single point the rest of the game. Luckily for Miami, the Jets couldn't get it together enough to pull out the win, only posting two field goals in the second and fourth quarters. A huge...

Dolphins special teams unit not so special in 2013

When a team finishes 8-8 and misses the playoffs, its offense and defense get scrutinized. Special teams? Usually not so much, though any good coach or player knows how vital a kick, punt and return game can be to a team's overall success. Miami's special teams unit in 2013 was just like the Dolphins overall -- mediocre. There were good things on which to build, and issues that need...

Starting games fast was problem for the Dolphins in 2013

The 2013 season for the Miami Dolphins started fast. 3-0 fast to be specific. The season ended just as quickly with 2 catastrophic losses to division rivals. For example, the frantic and heart-racing finishes to the Pittsburgh and New England games in weeks 14 and 15 in Miami. Or the whirlwind that surrounded the Dolphins when Jonathan Martin abruptly left the team and a media stakeout...

Dolphins swing and miss on Nick Caserio

  The Miami Dolphins are developing a very bad reputation around the NFL.  They are the team that no one wants to work for. The latest example of this came late Saturday when the Dolphins offered their General Manager position to Nick Caserio of the Patriots.  The new job would come with a promotion and a much higher salary than Caserio was making in New England.
