Pitiful Picks: Will the Dolphins get back to winning?

  By Bill (@PhinNation on Twitter) Back by popular demand, we present our Pitiful Picks!  We’ll pick a selection of games, including the Dolphins game, every week.  At the end of the year, we’ll look forward to being mocked….endlessly.  Last year, we started off slow, but were able to rebound and finish above .500.  We even took the Seahawks as underdogs in the Super Bowl...

Tannehill’s play must improve or ‘We Want Moore’ chants will get louder

By Julian (Miami_Jules on Twitter) It has happened again! The Miami Dolphins, going into the 2nd game of the season following a brilliant and glorious game against New England last week, managed to not just lose the game, but to get soundly outperformed at every level by the Buffalo Bills. Please tell me we’re not about to re-live 2013 all over again and that this game was just...

When will they stop being the ‘Same old Dolphins’?

  By Bill (@PhinNation on Twitter) As good as the Miami Dolphins looked in week 1 against the Patriots, they looked every bit as bad in week 2 against the Buffalo Bills.  The offense stunk….the defense wasn’t great……and the special teams were….well…..’special’.  Add it all up and you had the EXACT performance we fans expected from the Dolphins following their surprising...

The Dolphins’ Lazor Effect

By Julian (@Miami_Jules on Twitter) The Miami Dolphins offense, coming off a sack ridden year last season, had its work cut out by starting the new season under a new offensive coordinator and brand new offensive line. Few predicted other than a less than promising season for the Phins, who failed to sell the play action last season because of a non-existent running game, and long...

Dolphins Gameplan: Can the Dolphins upset the Patriots?

  By Cyrus (@Cyruslassus on Twitter) The New England Patriots have won 10 straight season openers.  That is the third best mark in league history, behind the Dallas Cowboys (17, 1965-1982) and the Miami Dolphins (11, 1992-2002).  They also have spanked the AFC East since 2001, with a 63-17 record and a .788 winning percentage.

PhinNation Predictions Part 3: Game by Game Dolphins picks for the 2014 season

  The Miami Dolphins are about to kickoff year 3 of their most recent re-build.  Ryan Tannehill enters year 3 in the NFL…..Joe Philbin enters year 3 as the Dolphins Head Coach…..and both need to come up big this year.  Philbin likely needs to guide his team to the playoffs in order to stay in Miami beyond this season.  The team brought in a new offensive coordinator, who’s...

PhinNation Predictions Part 2: Are the Dolphins a playoff team??

  By Cyrus (@Cyruslassus on Twitter) Recent history makes me a little bit afraid of projecting a 10+ win season, but the team is the strongest it has been in years and I do not think it is logical to expect mediocrity just because they have been in previous years.  Although that is a feeling I have a hard time shaking myself.

PhinNation Predictions Part 1: Big things ahead for the Dolphins?

  By Miami Jules (@Miami_Jules on Twitter) I have a sense of optimism about my Dolphins, going into the 2014 season, I haven’t felt since the days of Don Shula. Miami had a very good draft and that, along with moves made by Dennis Hickey and the Dolphins, during the early days of the free agent signing period, were right on target. It’s been a long time since priorities have...

PhinNation accepts the Dolphins Ice Bucket Challenge

  By Cyrus (@Cyruslassus on Twitter) O.J. Brigance carved out a successful NFL career that began as a Miami Dolphin from 1996 until 1999. I remember him well although I apparently never knew how to properly say his name, much like Patrick Surtain. I also did not know that he was a part of the Baltimore Stallions 1995 Grey Cup winning team and then joined the Ravens for their Super...

The Miami Dolphins opened their last week of their training camp practices which are open to the public, by inviting  fan site’s writers to a especial web media event. Phin Nation was there along a few others sites, to report on the progress of the new offense among other topics of interest to our readers. Photo Courtesy...

Brady Quinn might not make the Dolphins final roster

  By Bill (@PhinNation on Twitter) The Miami Dolphins made a surprising move at the quarterback position yesterday, signing Brady Quinn to a contract.  Not to worry, Ryan Tannehill is still firmly entrenched as the starter.  And most likely, Matt Moore will still serve as his backup for the 2014 season.  The surprising part is that Pat Devlin is gone and Brady Quinn is in.

Who will fill Reshad Jones’ spot at Safety for Dolphins?

By Cyrus (@Cyruslassus on Twitter) More disappointing news for the Miami Dolphins as Reshad Jones has been suspended four games for the league substance abuse police.  Jones joins Dion Jordan among the hundreds (slight exaggeration) of players with a positive test attributed to a supplement he did not know contained a banned substance.

Which Dolphins rookies will stand out in Preseason Game #1?

  By Cyrus (@Cyruslassus on Twitter) Twenty five rookies could debut in a Dolphins uniform against the Atlanta Falcons and it is a surprisingly deep group.  Roughly fifteen players out of this group could reasonably make the final 53 man roster or 8 man practice squad.

Are Tannehill’s recent struggles cause for concern?

  The Miami Dolphins are now almost 2 weeks into training camp. That’s two weeks of hands-on practice for Ryan Tannehill in Bill Lazor’s new offense.  But, instead of hearing about improvement, we’re hearing about Tannehill throwing interceptions….3 each of the last 2 practices.  Should we be concerned?

Dolphins smart moves in Free Agency will pay off in 2014

  By Cyrus (@Cyruslassus on Twitter) The Miami Dolphins were busy in free agency as they looked to upgrade many positions, while having tough decisions on a lot of their own top performers. I grade the biggest decisions the front office made in free agency taking into account their price, their 2013 Pro Football Focus rating, their fit on the 2014 Dolphins and even their effect...

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...

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

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

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.

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