Dolphins release 2012 3rd Round Pick Michael Egnew

2012 could go down as one of Miami’s best drafts because of first round Ryan Tannehill, third round pick Oliver Vernon and fourth round pick Lamar Miller but Michael Egnew joins John Martin as two early round busts under Jeff Ireland.   Egnew had the potential to be a very good passing tight end but he was never able to put it all together. Combine that with a poor offensive coordinator...

Miami Dolphin GM is the Key to Resurgence

The waning interest of Miami Dolphin fans is understandable when dissecting the performance of recent GMs. It would be foolish to place the entire burden on a single individual, so Jeff Ireland is merely a guinea pig for the ineptitude of the past as the Dolphins fell from grace. It started way before Jeff, but he's the most recent donkey for this example. (Donkey is kinder than...

The Miami Dolphin Coaching Staff Makes the Difference

Please forgive me while I warm up to our Miami Dolphin season with a little ramble. 2014 could go in many directions but the key is not named Ryan Tannehill. You see, potential and a dollar bill will buy a Snickers bar or a cup of coffee, but not much else. The Dolphins have spent two seasons grooming Tannehill and it's noteworthy in this age of mega-money and instant gratification...

For a change, Dolphins' coach & GM see eye-to-eye

BY NICK ST. DENISThe Miami Dolphins' head coach and general manager getting along? Weird.

Gaine didn’t wind up getting the position, which went to Dennis Hickey, and wound up leaving the Dolphins a short time...

The Miami Dolphins need better roster management.

The last couple of years the Dolphins have seemed to be a step behind. Whether it be a GM, coach, or even a player the Dolphins have waited too long to pull the trigger. For example, last year the Baltimore Ravens traded for left Tackle Eugene Monroe because of their poor offensive line play. This happened on October 1st, at the time the Dolphins had arguably the worst offensive...
