Dolphins denied in Detroit 20-16

It’s funny how the same inconsistencies for the Dolphins can rear their ugly head in an important game versus the Lions. Dropped passes, interceptions, fumbles, did the Dolphins in. The Dolphins started off very s-l-o-w. We know that this has been a sore spot for the coaching staff, the players, and the media.  When the Dolphins were down at the half 10-3, the game screamed Buffalo...

Miami Dolphins sign DT Earl Mitchell

The Miami Dolphins had a need for a defensive tackle after losing Paul Soliai to the Falcons and I was actually intrigued to see Earl Mitchell sign with a 4-3 team going into the off-season.
