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. In 2014, that hasn’t changed, saved for a few new players added to the mix. We’re going to look at the Dolphins’ wide outs, where they’d fit in the depth chart, as well as determining who will stay, and who...

The Dolphins new starting strong safety is making noise in the Phins early organized team activity sessions, however it’s not the kind of noise he would like to make. With players draped only in shorts and jerseys Delmas can only find the ball when it comes across his zone and promise the man carrying it that things will soon be different.

Dolphins' new receiver Landry ready to hit weights

Three things Ryan Tannehill has to improve on in 2014

The 2013 campaign was a good one for quarterback Ryan Tannehill even though his team missed the playoffs and finished 8-8 on the season. Tannehill is a very solid quarterback, especially for only being in the league for two years. What must Tannehill improve on to take that next step from good to great? I decided to  look at the Patriots game (arguably Tannehill’s best game) to...

Rishard Matthews deserves more playing time in 2014

The Dolphins had a very shaky offense in 2013, a lot of that came from two wide receivers playing out of place, Mike Wallace and Rishard Matthews. Wallace spent most of his time in the same position, right wide receiver while Matthews spent most of his time in the slot, 89% of his snaps to be exact. It will be hard for the Dolphins to find snaps for all their wide receivers, they...

Dolphins receivers could be playing for their jobs in 2014

The Dolphins had a solid receiving core in 2013 but it was lacking a few things, specifically a redzone target and players who could get YaC… not to mention make a play on the ball. The Dolphins starting four would  be Wallace, Hartline, Gibson, and Reshard Matthews. Wallace seems to be locked up for a while, and with his contract, plus with how he changes a defensive scheme,...

A Senior Bowl preview for Dolphins fans

The Senior Bowl is a great week for couch-GM’s like myself. You get to see the top seniors in the country go up against each other directly. This gives a great perspective on certain prospects, especially ones who come from schools where the competition was weak. The fact that it’s NFL coaching during the week also gets a lot of publicity, but that doesn’t necessarily mean...
