Ugly is one way of describing Dolphins-Bucs in front of less than 50,000 brave fans in preseason game number four. Disappointing is a word that comes to mind when so many Dolphins players on the roster bubble had an incredible chance to shine and came up empty. Incredible is a word that describes the hit by Jeff Luc as he nearly knocked the head off of a Buc receiver.  It didn...

First impressions can be important

It’s too early to make an evaluation of the Dolphins’ new offense – one 6 play drive is clearly only a sneak peak but what a sneak peak it was.

I’m going to let that sink in...
