Dolphins battling the injury bug early in camp

BY SEAN DONOVANIf you ask, most teams will say the most important thing to take away from training camp is a healthy roster.In that regard, it's been a tough start to the week for the Miami Dolphins.Though they've luckily avoided major injuries thus far, many first and second team regulars have either missed practice time or left sessions early.Adding themselves to that list...

Dolphins sign Samson Satele to quell issue at center

Well, there you go. The Miami Dolphins have signed center Samson Satele and since today is a day off, he’ll get brought up to speed on the Dolphins diverse and fast moving offense. The mere fact that Satele returns to Miami is a no-brainer in the sense that he was the only viable center on the market. However, Satele showed that his movement through three teams was not on accident...

Plenty of room for improvement on the Dolphins O line

The offensive line is the central hub of safety and protection for the offensive unit.  It is known as the group that keeps to itself.  In order for it to be successful it is a necessity that it becomes one cohesive unit.  This is the unit that has troubled the Miami Dolphins for more than a decade   Last season it exploded both on and off the field.  First on the field, where...

Dolphins need someone to take Center stage….

  Bill (@PhinNation on Twitter) Stop me if you’ve heard this one: The Miami Dolphins are concerned about their offensive line.  Yes, the Dolphins are only 6 days into training camp. BUT, there are problems that keep surfacing, mostly around the center position. The problem is that Mike Pouncey, the Dolphins Pro Bowl Center, is probably going to miss the first 6 games or so of...

Dolphins issues at center must to be resolved right away!

Heading into camp, the Miami Dolphins greatest concerns were making sure all players stay healthy, finding the solution to protecting Ryan Tannehill, having a defense that stops the run, and creating a stronger running game. With the recent surgery and near admission by the Dolphins that Mike Pouncey could miss as many as 8 weeks, the Dolphins have a void at the position of center...

What will the Dolphins week one starting O line look like ?

The Dolphins are on pace to have five new starters on the offensive line, especially with Mike Pouncey missing the first eight weeks of the season or so recovering from surgery. Last year the Dolphins line was historically bad, 59 sacks was the 10th most of all time. Even with five new starters, the new line should easily be able to be at least a mediocre line. With Joe Philbin finally...

The new Dolphins offensive line will take time to gel

With the offensive line easily being the weakest link on the team last year, General Manager Dennis Hickey and the Miami Dolphins’ front office had to completely rebuild the offensive line this off-season. They did that by signing left tackle Branden Albert, guard Shelley Smith, tackle Jason Fox, and guard Daryn Colledge, and drafting right tackle Ja’Wuan James and guard Billy...

Short and Long Term effects of Mike Pouncey’s Injury

The Miami Dolphins Probowl Center Mike Pouncey recently had hip surgery, he is likely to miss three months. He should be ready to in October. He will likely miss four or five games. The Dolphins have already signed veteran linemen Daryn Colledge who has been around since 06 and played every snap in 14 of 16 games last year for the Cardinals at guard. He will most likely provide depth...

Dolphins need offensive depth, not defensive busts in draft

Here’s the thing about the AFC East, the Dolphins were man-handled last season by every opponent except the NY Jets.  Whether it was early in the season versus the Buffalo Bills at Miami coming off a bye or the disastrous 4th quarter that slipped away surrendering 6 sacks to the Patriots; the Dolphins are damaged goods without a shield around quarterback Ryan Tannehill. In the...

Richie Incognito tried to destroy the “Fine Book”

One of the biggest pieces of evidence against Richie Incognito in regards to the Dolphins bullying scandal was a fine book kept by himself to apparently fund a postseason vacation for the offensive line. However during Ted Wells’ investigation into the team, Incognito sent a text messages to Mike Pouncey and Nate Garner asking them […]

Part 3: A realistic Miami Dolphins mock draft

  By Miami Jules (@Miami_Jules on Twitter) The 2014 draft is being advertised as one that is offensive tackle and guard deep. The Dolphins have the obvious needs we all know about coming off the franchise record breaking season in sacks allowed, but the Dolphins also had other needs. The inability to stop the run was an understated worry, especially since the Dolphins defense ranked...

  By Cyrus (@Cyruslassus on Twitter) The Dolphins should re-instate or release Richie Incognito immediately, and my vote is for re-instatement. With the news that Ted Wells is likely to present his findings after the conclusion of the season, there is no longer a legitimate reason to postpone the decision.

Report: Jonathan Martin won't turn over text messages to investigator

The Miami Dolphins are in the midst of a playoff race, so this is really the last thing I want to be writing about.  If you’ve noticed, we haven’t written much about the Jonathan Martin, Richie Incognito saga over the past few weeks.  Why? Well, because the NFL’s investigation is still ongoing AND I’ve had enough of the story.  Let’s just get to the results of the investigation...

The Dolphins are in the win column

After quickly going over the stat sheet, which by now most of you know is my favorite thing to do ( NOT ).  I noticed the stats were about even for both teams.  The Chargers had the ball for a touch more time and few more plays than the Dolphins did, but that is nothing new.  From my memory the Chargers gained about 100 more yards then the Dolphins did.  The Chargers just didn...

Dolphins defense hangs on late to beat Chargers

No offensive linemen. No margin for error. No problem for the Dolphins. The Dolphins survived the Chargers 20-16 Sunday evening with just enough offense, just enough defense — and just enough charity from San Diego. Their reward: a move into a tie with the Jets for the sixth and final playoff spot in the AFC — with two games against New York still to play. The Chargers had...
