Dolphins must manage their weakest links

The saying goes a team is only as strong as its weakest link, and that analogy rings especially true in the game of football. Dolphins fans saw last year when some of their “weakest links” had to be thrown into game action and the results were mixed, to say the least. Let’s start with the good, or at least satisfactory.  Michael Thomas made two of the biggest plays for...

After day 3 of camp, Dolphins appear ready for pre-season action

The second round pick flashed in his third practice and challenged every receiver fighting for a starting job.  While Landry has shown flashes of a tough physical receiver, his ability to get behind the secondary unabated is what everyone...

Dolphins' Jamar Taylor now healthy and ready to play

Cornerback Jamar Taylor looked certain to be an immediate contributor after being selected in the second round (54th overall) of the 2013 NFL Draft by the Miami Dolphins. Hernia surgery in May derailed that possibility, and kidney damage that was discovered at the NFL Combine prevented him from taking anti-inflammatories. That situation extended his recovery time, and Taylor wound...

Miami Dolphins’ second-year cornerbacks Taylor, Davis ready to make mark

Beyond offensive line, no Dolphins position has more uncertainty than cornerback, excluding Brent Grimes. Cortland Finnegan hasn’t had a good year since 2011, and Jamar Taylor and Will Davis played just 110 defensive snaps as rookies last season and allowed 12 of 14 passes to be completed, for 17.3 yards per reception.

Don’t take any heart to Dolphins predictions made in May

Just a week after the NFL Draft I find myself on the internet confronted by Miami Dolphins 2014 season predictions.   It’s May, it’s way too early for predictions, can we at least get to minicamp first?   The only thing worse than these predictions is the fan’s overreaction to said predictions. Post-Draft predictions are fun little indications of where the experts might see...

Will Jamar Taylor and Will Davis fit into the Dolphins future defensive plans?

Enter this off season’s Dolphins transactions with the re-signing of Pro Bowl cornerback Brent Grimes and signing of free-agent Cortland Finnegan (AKA Andre Johnson’s rag doll); the Dolphins added strength to their secondary. Even adding rangy and tall Walt Aikens in the 2014 draft shows the Dolphins aren’t yet satisfied with the depth at the cornerback position. Not to mention...

The Dolphins defense could be the key to winning in 2014

The back seven could be the most crucial part of the Miami Dolphins plans to play football in January this season. The Dolphin Defense was pretty good in 2013 as they surrendered only 17 touchdowns (3rd best in the league), opposing quarterbacks had the 5th worst passer rating against the Phins, and although they were 16th in yards per game surrendered, that stat is deceiving as...
