Tampa Bay Buccaneers Special Teams worst in team’s history!

The 2003 Bucs let the Panthers block a FG and a critical extra point that would have won the game, and still it wasn’t this bad. You’ve seen the old footage of Bucs kicker Neil O’Donoghue trying to kick the ball out of bounds but wiff on the ball as it goes nowhere but kicker goes down; it celebrates the old Bucs ineptness as a newborn franchise.

The Miami Dolphins brought their roster down to 53 players Saturday with the most notable player, Daniel Thomas, being released after four seasons in south Florida.

Dolphins Cut RB Daniel Thomas & RB/KR Marcus Thigpen

  Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post reports that the Dolphins have cut pick RB Daniel Thomas and KR Marcus Thigpen. Thomas, 26, is a former second-round pick, who never lived up to his draft status and has been largely underwhelming in each of his first three years in the league. He was reportedly competing for a roster spot with Mike Gillislee, so it’s really not...

Dolphins top Rams 14-13 in preseason finale

After muffing a chance badly in the first half, Thigpen had a 32-yard punt return midway through the fourth quarter to set up Miami's go-ahead score, and the Dolphins beat the St. Louis Rams 14-13 on Thursday night in the preseason finale for both teams....

Where do the Dolphins need to show improvement in tonight’s game?

The preseason is coming to a close as the Dolphins get ready to face the Rams. Usually the fourth preseason game is the coaching staff trying to figure out the last six or seven roster spots. The starting offense and defense will probably only play a drive or two so, meaning we wont get to see if the offense can improve after last weeks game against the Cowboys. There are three dimensions...

The Dolphins were without key starters Brian Hartline, Mike Wallace, Charles Clay and Olivier Vernon, giving depth players a chance to earn themselves a roster spot.

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...

Who’s In, Who’s Out Among Miami Dolphins’ Wide Receivers

The wide receiver position for the Miami Dolphins has evolved from being a position of weakness in 2012 to a position of good (albeit slightly overpaid) quality in 2013. In 2014, that hasn’t changed, saved for a few new players added to the mix. We’re going to look at the Dolphins’ wide outs, where they’d fit in the depth chart, as well as determining who will stay, and who...

Chris Humphrey/USA TODAY Sports John Miceli (@JohnMiceli15) The Dolphins are in major need of some help in special teams, and at running back.  Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas were terrible in the backfield last season, and I believe current returner Marcus Thigpen is not the answer in special teams.

Dolphins special teams unit not so special in 2013

When a team finishes 8-8 and misses the playoffs, its offense and defense get scrutinized. Special teams? Usually not so much, though any good coach or player knows how vital a kick, punt and return game can be to a team's overall success. Miami's special teams unit in 2013 was just like the Dolphins overall -- mediocre. There were good things on which to build, and issues...
