Twitter can’t make its mind up about newest Miami Dophin Ja’Wuan James

Miami Dolphins Twitter seems to be all over the place after taking Ja’Wuan James in the first round. While he was a reach, he does fill a need. The Dolphins are one step closer to having a solid offensive line and being able to go BPA for the rest of the draft. I gave James a 3rd rnd grade.. saw far too many mental mistakes that a 4-yr starter shouldn't be making. Minimal development...

Will Miami Dolphins let Vonta Leach get out of their sight this year?

Last year, when the Baltimore Ravens released Vonta Leach the Miami Dolphins acted fast.  They brought the blocking machine to the 305 to try to sign him.

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

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

The Dolphins’ loss has turned out to be the Texans’ gain. Or Gaine, to be precise.

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...

Dolphins have image problems: welcome to 2014

As Peyton Manning stood at the podium with confetti floating around following the Broncos' convincing win over the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship, I can't help but wonder what could've been.  Because of tweedle dumb (Steven Ross) and tweedle dumber (Jeff Ireland), it wasn't to be.  After what has--and continues to happen--in Miami, Peyton made the...

In 2013, Jeff Ireland tried to revamp his linebacker core by replacing Kevin Burnett and Karlos Dansby with Wheeler and Ellerbe. The move came at an expense but both on the field and off the field. Ireland dished out 13 million dollars guaranteed of his...
