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...

Ja’Wuan James could be special for Dolphins

  By Cyrus (@Cyruslassus on Twitter) I must admit that selecting a right tackle at number 19 was one of my least favorite ideas, but the Miami Dolphins reached for one that has Pro Bowl potential at two spots. That is the value I see in the James pick. Photo Courtesy of Dolphins.com As a rookie he projects as a starter and I expect him to be better than both Tyson Clabo and Jon...

It’s Dolphins Draft Day! Some last minute thoughts…..

  By Cyrus (@Cyruslassus on Twitter) The Miami Dolphins have the 19th pick in the draft, which could be a valuable pick should one of the top three quarterbacks slides, or another elite prospect, such as tight end Eric Ebron, wide receiver Mike Evans or linebacker CJ Mosley. Photo Courtesy of Dolphins.com At this point the Dolphins would have a decision on their hands. Mine would...

Should the Dolphins draft a QB in the 1st round?

  By Cyrus (@Cyruslassus on Twitter) After putting a lot of thought into the 2014 season and the future of the Miami Dolphins, I have come to a surprising conclusion heading into the draft. The Miami Dolphins must draft a quarterback in the first round. Photo Courtesy of Dolphins.com Ryan Tannehill is not a franchise quarterback as of yet and that is the first order of business...

Mock Draft: After signing Moreno, how will the Dolphins attack the draft?

  By Cyrus (@Cyruslassus on Twitter) Since my last mock draft, there have been a few significant developments. The first was the signing of Knowshon Moreno, which could be an indication that Miami will not draft a running back, or at least not in the first three rounds. Photo Courtesy of Dolphins.com The second is that according to the Ravens and Dolphins, it is a 2015 7th round...

Would DeSean Jackson make sense for the Dolphins?

  By Cyrus (@Cyruslassus on Twitter) The Philadelphia Eagles have cut wide receiver DeSean Jackson and the Miami Dolphins are among the teams that could be interested. Photo Courtesy of Wigstruck via Wikipedia Bill Lazor was brought in as offensive coordinator because of the success of the Philadelphia Eagles offense last year and it would only make sense to bring in one of the...

Breaking down the odds of the Dolphins drafting Pro Bowlers in the NFL Draft

  By Cyrus (@Cyruslassus on Twitter) I visited my local fair yesterday and was lured in by the chance of coming away with a big prize for a small price in their carnival games. I came away feeling scammed and it reminded me of the NFL Draft. Photo Courtesy of Dolphins.com I did a numbers analysis of the past five drafts and discovered that 80 Pro Bowlers were selected out of 1272...

Who are the top 10 Dolphins of All-Time??

  By Miami Jules (@Miami_Jules on Twitter) Spring has sprung and with it, spring brings along its beautiful flowers and warmer weather, calm after the wintry  storms, and a lull in the football free agent action, as many of the top F/As have been signed and coaches and GMs put on their silly convention hats and attend the NFL Owner’s annual meeting. We, the absolute football...

Updated Dolphins Mock Draft – Will they go OL in the 1st round?

  By Cyrus (@Cyruslassus on Twitter) The Miami Dolphins should be able to fill a lot of needs in the 2014 draft.  Here is my projection. Photo Courtesy of Dolphins.com With the 19th pick in the 1st round, the Miami Dolphins select: C.J. Mosley, Alabama, Middle Linebacker I believe the Miami Dolphins will have an elite defense in 2014, but it cannot happen without All Pro production...

Dolphins closing in on Knowshon Moreno? What about Blount?

  By Cyrus (@Cyruslassus on Twitter) The current market value for Denver’s Knowshon Moreno and New England’s LeGarrette Blount is at about $3 million per season, which to me says the Dolphins should double their pleasure. Photo Courtesy of Jeffery Beall via Wikipedia.org Knowshon Moreno is an every down back with good hands and an excellent pass protector.  He ran for a thousand...

Is Devin Hester an upgrade for the Dolphins?

  By Cyrus (@Cyruslassus on Twitter) The recent news that Devin Hester would “love” to play for the Miami Dolphins and that they are one of the thirteen teams that have approached his agent, has me pretty jazzed. Photo Courtesy of Jauerback via Wikipedia I gave Hester a first round draft grade in 2006 in spite of the fact that he was a special teamer without a defined position...

Life for the Dolphins after the draft

  By Miami Jules (@Miami_Jules on Twitter) We all knew about the many needs the Miami Dolphins had going into the 2014 off season, and yet we were all aware of the salary cap limits left after last year expensive signings. The free agent signing period is on but it would be impossible to address all of the team’s present needs which have accumulated over the past few seasons,...

Vince Wilfork to the Dolphins?

  By Cyrus (@Cyruslassus on Twitter) The only debate in a Vince Wilfork to Miami scenario is whether he has anything left in the tank. When the Dolphins traded up one spot in the 2004 draft to draft Vernon Carey and not Vince, I was livid, even more so after he ended up on the New England Patriots.

Dolphins get an 'A' so far in Free Agency

By Cyrus Lassus (@Cyruslassus on Twitter) The Miami Dolphins are not done with free agency, but the first major wave has come and gone and the team’s core looks strong. Branden Albert is finally a Miami Dolphin and the team has an elite left tackle again. Photo Courtesy of Dolphins.com He is excellent in pass protection but only considered average in the running game.  His detractors...

Dolphins draft plans after their Free Agency additions

Players entering the NFL draft have moved up and down in the rankings in the week preceding the free agent period, and although these rankings are only a rough guide, they will guide us through these last weeks before the actual draft...

I can’t believe the Dolphins traded Jonathan Martin

  Dolphins fans, I was in stunned disbelief last night when the news broke.  What I dreaming?  Was this an April Fool’s Day joke 3 weeks early?  This couldn’t be real, could it?  The Dolphins traded Jonathan Martin…..to an NFL team?  WHAAAAT?

After busy Day 1, what’s next for Dolphins on Day 2?

  As expected, the Miami Dolphins filled one of their major holes within the first few minutes of free agency. They signed LT Branden Albert to a 5 year deal worth approximately $47 million ($25 guaranteed).  Albert will immediately be penciled in as the Dolphins starting left tackle.

The Dolphins plan is clear heading into free agency….

  Free Agency begins at 4pm on Tuesday, but the Miami Dolphins got a head start when they signed S Louis Delmas to a 1 year, $3.5 mil contract.  The deal is a low-risk high reward for the Dolphins, who essentially signed Delmas to a ‘show-me’ contract.  Delmas was able to sign before the 4pm free agency period because he was cut by the Lions a few weeks ago.

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.

Jimmy Graham to the Dolphins?

Alright Dolphins fans, we’re in the midst of “rumor and speculation” season. So why not jump right into it.  On Friday, Jimmy Graham was given the non-exclusive Franchise tag by the Saints.  What that means is that Graham can shop his services to another NFL team, but the Saints would have an opportunity to match a contract offer by another team OR take back 2 first round...

Dolphins should cut Jonathan Martin…..today

  Sorry Dolphins fans, but I’m done with Jonathan Martin and Richie Incognito.  Done. D-O-N-E.  We’ve all been hearing about this bullying story since October and quite frankly, I’ve had enough.  It’s been an ongoing soap opera for almost 4 months now and it seems (as we thought) that it was overblown and was much to do about nothing.
