Dolphins Ginn in New York
Returning a kickoff for a touchdown is a very rare thing in the NFL. While I don’t have an assistant to compile stats for me, like some big name writers, I can hazard a guess that it only happens about once every hundred or so kickoffs. That being said, it’s even more...

Attacking The Wildcat
The very name “Wildcat” seems to bring with it a pulse quickening unlike any other form of offense. There’s just something about it that conveys a sense of excitement, conjures visions of big, mind-blowing plays and really grabs a football fan right in the adrenal gland...

For Dolphins, Fast Starts Aren’t Enough
Every good coach knows the best way to beat a high-powered offense is to start fast and never let off the gas. Tony Sparano and his Miami Dolphins did get off to a rapid-fire scoring frenzy last Sunday, but left the door open for the sleeping giant to awaken. With two...

Dolphins run defense the one constant through four games
Thus far, the Miami Dolphins have had a lot of ups and downs in various phases of the game. Sometimes the pass rush is solid. Other times it's non-existent. Sometimes, the special teams unit is steady, while other times its extremely suspect. Sometimes the passing attac...

Dolphins quietly building the best rushing attack in the NFL
239, 149, and 250. What do those numbers represent? Oh, just Miami's rushing output over their last three games. Despite a pedestrian opening effort that netted just 94 yards on 22 carries (which isn't all that bad generally speaking) the Dolphins have quickly assert...

Pennington injury could provide fortunate twist to unfortunate season

Dolphins’ gut-wrenching loss a case of the good, the bad and the ugly
The Miami Dolphins have always had a knack for delivering heart-wrenching losses, so Monday Night's loss to the Indianapolis Colts was nothing new. However, the rather lopsided stats - particularly rushing yards and time of possession - made this an especially perplexin...

Line play will be key for Dolphins on Monday Night
While the marquee will call out names like Manning, Wayne, Pennington, Brown, Taylor, and Porter, the reality is that Miami's Monday Night matchup against the Indianapolis Colts will be decided in the trenches on both sides of the ball. Offensively, Jake Long and compa...

Dolphins defense playing well but must force turnovers
Just a quick thought... Despite all of the doom and gloom being spouted by Miami Dolphins fans, there is a reason for cautious optimism coming out the 19-7 loss against Atlanta. In a nutshell, Miami's defense is looking much stouter than it did a year ago. Youngsters l...

Dolphins, Pennington start the 2009 season the way they ended 2008

Can Dolphins’ Wilford challenge for “Comeback Player of the Year” award?
Ok, ok. Maybe I'm overreacting a bit. I understand that a touchdown against backups, late in an early preseason game, does not make for a season. It doesn't even make for a secured spot on the 53-man roster. Still, you have to admit that Ernest Wilford's third-quarter t...
