So this week, the Dolphins were in the news again because Minkah Fitzpatrick’s mom mouthed off (correctly so) about her son being played out of position.  It’s pretty sad when an old lady knows more about coaching that our alleged professional staff.   Just like when Miko Grimes wasn’t really off base in her analyses.  These ladies are loud and vocal, bit they make strong points. I liked the olden days better, when Channing Crowder’s mom challenged Rex Ryan to a fistfight.  Now that was lighthearted and cool! Anyway, Kenny Stills was also in the news again, and hopefully the issues with him and Stephen RossRead More →

Nothing really matters in pre-season, so let’s get that right out in the open.  Yet despite that, some things become noticeable, if not meaningful. Our new defensive line looked horrendous.  In a normal pre-season game, you don’t read into it too much.  However, I must point out that our STARTING defensive line stayed in the game until the 4th quarter.   So our boys were getting shoved aside by Atlanta’s 4th and 5th stringers.  Guys who will be working construction in a few weeks were getting the best of Christian Wilkins.  Charles Harris, as usual, was a non factor.   The other guys?  Invisible as well. (OnRead More →

Like perfect clockwork, the Dolphins are in the news again for non-football reasons. Kenny Stills is angry about how Stephen Ross spends his money. Meanwhile, the Patriots owner spends money in a Jupiter strip mall, and every single Patriot shuts their hole. How will this one play out?Read More →

Every single year it seems, without fail, we hear the same old stories in Dolphins camp that we don’t necessarily hear from other teams. This time around, it’s the usual July-August stories about all the Dolphins who are under the radar. I’ve barely heard a word about first-round pick Christian Wilkins.  Our star QB, Josh Rosen, is under-performing and not making any notable strides.   So our two star acquisitions are floundering away, but we keep hearing about the undrafted rookies. Same old tale from Dolphinsland, every year. Undrafted discards WR Preston Williams and OG  Deion Calhoun are apparently mesmerizing coaches in practice.   It’s a niceRead More →

One of the best.  Deservedly in the Hall of Fame. I love this shot of him arguing with Bill Arnsbarger (defensive coordinator with headset, standing between Shula and the mustache dude) and how Shula seems to be listening.  Shula took in what his intelligent players had to say and adjusted.Read More →

Citing a health issue, Jim Caldwell has “stepped back” from his role of assistant head coach and will now be merely a consultant. As I always say, there is no good news that ever comes out of June or July, and this is bad news. First, Caldwell is the ONLY member of the Dolphin staff with any semblance of experience.  He’s been coaching for years, including head coaching jobs.  5 years ago, he was a football coach while Brian Flores was an assistant to a regional personnel specialist, i.e., a desk job in an office. Second, he was seen as a real QB guru, andRead More →

There’s been nothing but nothing to write about.  Not even a rumor. But like I’ve said for years, this time of year, no news is good news.   If there’s a Dolphin story in June or July, it usually only means someone got arrested or else someone blew out their ACL. By the way, Dion Jordan got suspended again in May.    Jonathan Martin quit.   Now there’s a couple of impressive Dolphin draft picks, eh?Read More →

So, Reshad Jones is an intriguing guy. He skipped last month’s voluntary team workouts but did report to the mandatory practices that began today.  He said he skipped the May sessions because “voluntary means voluntary.”   Um, okay. He’s a skilled player and, personally, I think he’s our best DB.  Yes, Xavien Howard has improved, but Jones is more reliable and steady…until he isn’t.  I cannot and won’t forget the game last year when Jones REFUSED to go into the game when they asked him to.  Jones likes to run his mouth about all the Pro Bowls he’s been to, but he remains mum on whyRead More →

Well, he’s back in the NFL, just not with the Dolphins. Richie has signed on with the Oakland Raiders, who I suspect will get something out of him.  I always hoped that he would come back to Miami after accepting a massive apology from Stephen Ross.  But I don’t think that’s gonna happen! Whether it’s Richie or Tyreek Hill or Colin Kaepernick or Ray Rice, ..what are your thoughts on signing some of the NFL’s controversial bad boys?  Read More →

Senorise Perry, a backup Dolphin running back for several seasons, is now on the Bills.  Perry is a little-used substitute on an awful team in a city with zero sports titles.  This part isn’t newsworthy.  No one cares. So why the news?  Perry has chosen to wear #32.   The Bills have not allowed anyone to wear that number since The Juice left Buffalo in the late 1970s.   It’s a pretty ballsy move for Perry to request that number.   Gotta give him credit. Perry, along with 2018 leading Dolphin rusher Frank Gore, are both in the Bills’ backfield this season. Despite OJ’s legal claims to fame,Read More →

So we’ll be a taking a bit of a hiatus for the first few weeks in May. I’ll leave everything up and running so you guys can talk about all things Dolphins. It’s encouraging to see that we’re all on the same page about Josh Rosen having some potential.   Some are more enthusiastic than others, but at least the enthusiasm and anticipation is there.   It’s been quite a while for that.  No one is saying “Rosen and Fitzpatrick both suck.  We should traded away the farm to draft Kyler Murray.”  It’s nice that we all seem to agree. Enjoy, and keep on chatting…Read More →

Make no mistake about this:   Coach Brian Flores and GM Chris Grier know who their starting QB is. Don’t be fooled by the politically correct nonsense about “it will be a competition,” and “we’ll have to see.”  They know already.   Of course they know.   It’s fine that they don’t want to share the information yet, but at least say “No comment” rather than pretending they are unsure. But, us Dolphin fans are used to getting lied to.   Like when Tricky Nicky Saban said, “I am not going to Alabama” or when Big Bill Parcells said, “I will not trade Jason Taylor. ” Or when StephenRead More →

Well, apparently we’re stuck with Charles Harris as our leading sack monster.   He has two sacks in two years, and yet our brain trusts thought it was better to waste draft picks on running backs and a project LB with pretty long hair who left many pundits scratching their heads.   We really really needed a DE or two. That being said, despite an underwhelming Saturday, we made some great strides Thursday and Friday.   I’m on board with Josh Rosen and, for once, I’m not going to criticize management for trying this. Let’s hope his attitude issues are in the past.   HeRead More →

We might be getting close to a new QB… I don’t know enough about the guy to judge yet, but i know he was highly touted LAST year.   During the season, he had a lot of bust-like qualities.  But did he get a fair shot with that awful Cardinal line? I’m excited for now.   The promise of a first-round pick (last year) for our 2nd-round pick this year seems fair.    I’d prefer a 3rd or 4th rounder, but we’ll see.Read More →

By popular demand, I’ll open up the draft room tonight.    I’ll be in an out myself, but you guys can discuss it and debate. Dolphins Truth Chat Room After a lot of back and forth, my own personal choice is QB Daniel Jones.   If not, then a DE.   We were too cheap to pay our existing DEs, so now we have to draft at least 3 new ones, possibly 4.   I can live with drafting a QB as long as we get a stud DE. Your final thoughts?    Read More →

First things first… Here’s a whopper from the Miami Herald, and it proves what I’ve been saying about Stephen Ross all along… “Ending the year on the road is no big surprise; the Dolphins prefer it because it helps preserve Hard Rock Stadium‘s field for the Orange Bowl.” Good ol’ Stephen Ross!  Always placing the interests of college football ahead of his own team.   What an unfortunate owner we have.   He should be pounding on Goodell’s door demanding we finish at home, instead of “preferring” we play on the road. At least he’s not sending us to Europe this year! Seems like weeks 14, 15,Read More →
