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...

This year the Miami Dolphins’ defense is for real

Entering into week three of the NFL season, the Miami Dolphins are 1-1, with a win and a loss against divisional opponents. With a win against the New England Patriots and a loss against the Buffalo Bills, the Dolphins have already shown that they still suffer from inconsistencies that they struggled with last year. With that being said though, their defense has shown to be improved...

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...

Miami 10, Atlanta 16: Dolphins Preseason Week 1 stock report

In a game that featured many players that are unlikely to make either team’s 53 man roster, the Miami Dolphins lost 16-10 in their preseason opener against the Atlanta Falcons. 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. During the limited time Miami’s starters...

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 on Monday...

Should the Dolphins consider trading a defensive end ?

Let me start this by saying that I believe defensive end is one of the most impactful positions on the defensive side of the ball and quality depth is never a bad thing.  But if there is one position Miami could potentially afford to deal in a trade to bring in future draft picks, it’s safe to say it would be defensive end. An aging, but yet highly productive, Cam Wake is due...

Dolphins offer reasons for optimism amid first weekend of camp

The first weekend of training camp is usually a bit too early to project where a team is headed in the upcoming season. That’s the case whether you want to be optimistic, pessimistic, or realistic. The third option usually doesn’t come into play this time of year, as the team still has had yet to play a single preseason game, and have so far only worked with pads on once. With...

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...

Why Dion Jordan is set for big things in 2014

The biggest story from Miami Dolphins OTA’s for me wasn’t Bill Lazor and his hyped up Eagles-lite offensive changes, nor was it Ryan Tannehill’s perceived struggles running said offense. It wasn’t Mike Pouncey being Mike Pouncey either, but instead it’s the continued development of defensive end Dion Jordan. Jordan has been an enigma, at least that’s how his rookie season...
