When will they stop being the ‘Same old Dolphins’?

  By Bill (@PhinNation on Twitter) As good as the Miami Dolphins looked in week 1 against the Patriots, they looked every bit as bad in week 2 against the Buffalo Bills.  The offense stunk….the defense wasn’t great……and the special teams were….well…..’special’.  Add it all up and you had the EXACT performance we fans expected from the Dolphins following their surprising...

Dolphins bring back running back Daniel Thomas

After losing to Buffalo 29-10, the Dolphins could be without both Knowshon Moreno and Lamar Miller for an extended period of time. At this time, the time table for Moreno is much longer and he could be placed on IR and be back after week 7 or 8. Lamar Miller on the other hand seemed to find some room and space yesterday, but managed to have some key drops when the Dolphins needed...

Dolphins continue to struggle against the Bills

After an exciting opening day Dolphins fans had to take a step back into reality after Miami lost its 3rd straight game to the Buffalo Bills. Philip Wheeler said the Dolphins “are built to beat the Patriots” but “the Bills are built to beat us.” What Wheeler said happens to be true however, is not an excuse.

Bills squish the Dolphins 29-10

In a series of bad omens, the Miami Dolphins not only lost the game, they lost their way in Buffalo.  It looked like the offensive playbook ended up in the hands of the Buffalo Bills as the Dolphins couldn’t cross into Buffalo territory in the first half.  While things looked promising pre-game with Knowshon Moreno marching out to the Bills logo and pointing at the crowd, showing...

What Was the Biggest Factor in Sunday’s Loss?

Rick:  The biggest factor for me in the Patriots’ loss to the Dolphins last Sunday was the fact that Miami dominated the game in the trenches. Knowshon Moreno and Lamar Miller had a field day against the Patriots’ front seven and their inability to tackle. This allowed the ‘Fins to run for 191 yards in the victory. As far as the offensive line goes, the team did miss Logan...

Dolphins Dominate Patriots, on to Buffalo

If you would have told me that the Dolphins gave up three first quarter turnovers to a Brady led Patriots team, I would not have predicted a favorable outcome. But indeed it was a tale of two halves last Sunday, and despite the fumbles and interceptions, the offense was moving the ball and winning the line. The defense recovered nicely in the second half and outplayed every man on...

Old weakness on offense for Miami Dolphins has become a strength

What I considered the two biggest weaknesses of the Dolphins offense last season and my biggest offensive concerns going into this one, seemed a world away on Sunday as the offensive line performed exceptionally to a man and the running backs pounded the Patriot defense into submission. Last season Ryan Tannehill was sacked an incredible 10 times in two games against the New England...

Lamar Miller Loses Football & Shoe In Odd Play Vs. Patriots

Late in the 1st half, Miami Dolphins RB, Lamar Miller, coughed up the football to the Patriots newest cornerback and future hall-of-famer, Darrelle Revis. The football wasn’t the only thing Miller lost on the rush; his left shoe went flying in the air on impact and didn’t land until the Patriots were already celebration the turnover. Believe it or not, I’ve seen something like that before.
