Will Mike Wallace breakout this year ?

With training-camp opening up on Friday and a degree of optimism that will surely fade, I want to take a look at a player who I hope (I dare not say think, at the chance of being called overly optimistic) shocks the league this year. Mike Wallace.   Wallace signed a five-year, $60 million deal last offseason, but an optimistic fan base was quickly shot back down to earth because...

Miami Dolphins training camp preview

With training camp right around the corner, I thought it would be a good idea to take a look at a few of the most interesting topics to keep an eye on this year. Brian Hartline and Mike Wallace are safe as Miami’s #1 and #2 wide receivers in 2014, after that it is anyone’s guess what the depth chart will look like. Jarvis Landry, Miami’s second round pick is almost guaranteed...

Wallace ended the season with 73 catches for 930 yards and 5 touchdowns, which aren’t bad numbers, but the 5 touchdowns were the fewest of his career. Heading into the 2014 season, the Dolphins have made it a priority to use Wallace more effectively...

Should the NFL replace the Pro Bowl with Playoffs?

The NFL Pro Bowl has slowly became one of the most pointless games in any sport, everyone seems to have an idea on how to fix it, why not replace it with playoffs? There has been talk of adding two more regular season games, or even adding another playoff team. While adding two more games isn’t a bad idea, adding another playoff team would just reward mediocracy. Instead, after...

Is it really fair to say the Dolphins are a bottom 5 team ?

Fancy signings such as Mike Wallace a year ago have given way to much needed improvements upfront on the offensive line and tweaking the Dolphins defensive secondary.

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.

Offseason notes: Mike Wallace to take advantage of new offensive scheme?

There are no two ways to look at it: Mike Wallace disappointed the Miami Dolphins last season, who invested significant free agent dollars in his services. Overall, his numbers were underwhelming – 73/930/5 for 12.7 YPR and 58.1 YPG averages respectively. The 73 catches were actually the highest of his five year career, but the yards per reception number and the five scores were...

Projected stats for the Dolphins WR group

Wide receivers are thought to be a strength of the team this coming season, with almost an overabundance of talent at the position, but tight ends are a question mark. With experience, speed, sure hands, and young talent at the receiver position, they are set for a potentially big year, because of their diverse talent spectrum.
