2015 Miami Dolphins Crystal Ball - Roster and Record

I cannot remember a season surrounded by so much hype from the Miami Dolphins fan base and that hype comes with good reason. Miami made the biggest splash of the offseason when they lured big-ticket free agent Ndamukong Suh to South beach. Let’s leave the salary cap to the experts; bottom line is that the Dolphins added a top five defensive player to a defense that was already...

Dolphins DT Earl Mitchell drawing praise from Wake, Suh

When one thinks of the Miami Dolphins defensive line the names that come to mind are generally Ndamukong Suh, Cameron Wake and Olivier Vernon, but often overlooked is defensive tackle Earl Mitchell. Mitchell, who has had the luxury of playing next to guys like JJ Watt, Mario Williams and Wake throughout his five year career, is often slated as the third or fourth option on the defensive...

Just how good can the Dolphins defense be this year? The best case scenario is special. The front seven has two All-Pro caliber players in Ndamukong Suh and Cameron Wake. They lead the likes of Oliver Vernon, Earl Mitchell and Derick Shelby. The back end of the defense also has two All-Pro caliber players in Brent Grimes and Reshad Jones. The foundation is in place.

Dolphins years of misery finally over?

After viewing last night’s preseason win over the Atlanta Falcons, as a fan I’m feeling confident in the 2015 Dolphins.  For starters, the first units played solid despite not scoring more than 7 points on offense and allowing 3 points on defense.  Led by Ndamukong Suh, the Dolphins defensive line, specifically Earl Mitchell didn’t do anything but devour the Falcons bigs...

Dolphins experimenting with DT Earl Mitchell at fullback

The Joe Philbin era of the Miami Dolphins has had a very apparent aversion to the fullback position, and the last time there was speculation that the Dolphins would pursue a fullback was a few years back when there were strong rumors that the team was very interested in former Ravens fullback Vonta Leach. There currently is not a traditional fullback on the roster so it would appear...

Miami Dolphins Defense Ready for 2015 Season

When talking about defense in the NFL the Miami Dolphins must come to mind. For the past several seasons they have played decent football on the defensive side but this offseason it just got a whole lot better when they added Ndamukong Suh to the mix. It just seems unfair that opposing offenses must have to face Suh and Cameron Wake on the same side of the field, but they will, and...
