Philbin says Dolphins read to play a game

The Miami Dolphins conducted the first 30 minutes of Monday's two-hour organized team activities under hazy, smoky conditions because of a nearby wildfire. "It felt a little weird at first," said Pro-Bowl cornerback Brent Grimes, who suffers from asthma, "but as it went on we got used to it." Coach Joe Philbin seemed pleased with the session. "I thought...

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...

An in-depth analysis of the Miami Dolphins defense (and its coaches) since 2012

When talking about the game of football, one must realize that it goes beyond the head coach. You might have the biggest name out there but if he doesn’t have good assistant coaches, there is only so much that he can accomplish. On the flip side, you can have a guy who isn’t the big name but with great assistants, he can accomplish so much more and find greater success. During...

Dolphins expect “better dividends” from Jamar Taylor in 2014

The Dolphins drafted a pair of cornerbacks in the first three rounds of the NFL draft, but got just 14 games combined out of them.

Dolphins show no heart in embarrassing loss to winless Bucs

  Dolphins fans, we’ve had our share of low points over the last decade, haven’t we?  And yet, every time we reach a new low, the Miami Dolphins somehow find a way to fall even further.  I’m hesitant to say that we’ve officially reached rock bottom.  Because, who knows?  If you are a Dolphins fan that has full faith that the team will turn things around, you might not...

Patriots 27, Dolphins 17: Takeaways & observations

The Miami Dolphins' quest to put together a strong 60-minute effort again fell short. What's more frustrating for the Dolphins and their fans than losing on the road to the AFC East-leading Patriots 27-17, was that Miami dominated the game for the first 35 minutes. Then the Dolphins collapsed. Miami led 17-3 after one half in which it controlled the ball for 19 minutes...

Tannehill leads Dolphins to impressive 27-23 victory over Falcons

The Miami Dolphins may be the walking wounded right now…..but they’re the 3-0 walking wounded!  The Dolphins lost a number of starters before and during the game on Sunday, but they stuck together and gutted out a win in their home opener.  The Dolphins quickly fell behind 10-0, but Ryan Tannehill lead them on a touchdown drive capped off by a 5 yard Daniel Thomas touchdown...

But even Miami's cornerbacks have gotten in on the action. Cornerback Jimmy Wilson has recorded two sacks, and cornerback Nolan Carroll has...

Well that was a change from last week's game. Showing you're never as bad as your most recent loss, the Titans got pretty much all the breaks and took advantage of them to rout the Dolphins in Miami, 37-3. The first break came after an exchange of punts to start the game-Reggie Bush converted third-and-13 with a run, but Jason McCourty forced a fumble the Titans recover....
