Make some noise: Dolphins embracing power of music in locker room

DAVIE, Fla. -- Music has the power to evoke a wide range of emotions. For the Miami Dolphins, it's become the backbeat to their season starting from the very beginning in July, when head coach Joe Philbin decided to relax the rules a bit and pump out a wide range of music during training camp. On any given day, music is playing loudly from a few of the lockers before and after practice...

Dolphins observations: Miami looks lost in falling to Buffalo

After their feel-good home victory to open the season, the Miami Dolphins crashed down to the earth Sunday with a deflating 29-10 loss to the Buffalo Bills on the road. This time, another weak first-half performance could not be overcome, as they were able to do against the Patriots. Bills running back C.J. Spiller made sure of that, with a 102-yard touchdown kickoff return in the...

Dolphins visit Bills trying for second straight divisional matchup win

MIAMI, Fla. -- Either the Miami Dolphins or the Buffalo Bills will enter Week 3 of the season undefeated, and whoever emerges victorious from the AFC East division battle on Sunday, 1:00 p.m. at the renovated Ralph Wilson Stadium will most certainly have deserved it. After both teams pulled off upset victories, they'll be hungry to prove Week 1 wasn't a fluke. Backed by a dangerous...

Dolphins battling the injury bug early in camp

Vernon looking to elevate game with fundamentals

BY SEAN DONOVANThe Miami Dolphins used a high draft pick in 2013 on a dynamic pass-rushing prospect to start opposite All-Pro defensive end Cameron Wake.That pick, athletic defensive end Dion Jordan, appears headed in the wrong direction after playing sparingly in his first season and being hit with a suspension for the first four games of this one, but another of Miami's young linemen...

Miami Dolphins 2014: 5 Most Pressing Questions Heading Into Training Camp

So much talent and not enough success. That continues to be the mantra that plagues the Miami Dolphins. It reminds me of the teams Don Shula had at the end of his career – the teams made up of former first round picks that went nowhere fast and fans and the media questioned whether he still had the Chutzpah he showed as a fiery young coach decades ago. Joe Philbin is no Don Shula...

Dolphins offseason wish list should include some big names

  By Cyrus (@Cyruslassus on Twitter) The Miami Dolphins, after giving Brent Grimes the deal that he has earned, will field an above average defense yet again. While most of the offseason attention is on the offense and how it needs 4 new offensive linemen, I find the idea of using a first round pick and a lot of money to fill two of those positions, offensive.

Should the Miami Dolphins draft Michael Sam?

  By Cyrus (@Cyruslassus on Twitter) My first thought is that the Miami Dolphins have way too many holes to fill on the roster to take a defensive end in the 2014 draft, but what Missouri Tiger Michael Sam has done since August of 2013 has changed my mind. He came out of the closet to his teammates, had a stellar season with 10 1/2 sacks and 18 tackles for loss, claimed Co-Defensive...

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.
