Some notable improvements, but the same result. A frustrating point is that if Drake, Williams, and that bum DeVante Parker could hold onto balls in their arms, we woulda put up 30 points. And if the refs didn’t call a ridiculous offsides penalty on our onside kick…coulda shoulda woulda.. more to come.  What did you guys think?  Read More →

I don’t see the Dolphins winning this game, and that’s no surprise. But if we can’t win, at least improve.     I’ll be looking for improvement in several areas, keeping my eye on guys like DeVante Parker and Charles Harris.   This is their third game under their new system, and no more excuses.   No more “I’m still learning the play calls” etc.   It’s time to see them step up a make a damn play. I will also keep an eye on Josh Rosen.  Can he do any better than Ryan Fitzpatrick  behind that group of linemen?  Can he do any worse? MostRead More →

Here’s a piece about how some players may refuse to play for the Dolphins. https://sports.yahoo.com/what-if-top-nfl-draft-prospects-dont-want-to-be-part-of-miami-dolphins-rebuild-193056027.html  This is the ultimate in ungratefulness.  But there is precedent.   Eli and Elway both did this, holding their teams hostage and refusing to play for them. Childish cowards. The NFL needs to counter that by ruling:  “If you don’t play for who drafts you, good luck with your career at McDonalds.” It’s a very real possibility that some disgruntled college kid refuses to let the Dolphins draft him.  I just hope the guys we are eyeing have more class than that.Read More →

Apparently, all you have to do these days is ask for a trade and you got it. Hold out, and the owner caves in to you. Mouth off to the GM and call him a racial slur?  No problem, the next day you’re a Patriot. Have no experience?  Become a Dolphin head coach. It’s getting ridiculous.  Now add the Steelers to the list of teams we want to do poorly.  We get their #1 pick after this debacle of a season is over. All of this is due to the fact that Flojob frustrated Minkah Fitzpatrick by making him 17 different positions.  Some defensive guruRead More →

Brian Flores doesn’t get it.  He simply doesn’t. And to beat a dead horse and repeat this, yet again…Stephen Ross allows him to not get it. In New England, they called him Flo.  Here, we call him curse words. Ask any Dolphin, and they will tell you that being shut out is a sickening feeling.  Losing 99-3 is better than 43-0.  Brian Flores, Coach Flo, had a chance to end that misery and kick a field goal at the end. Instead, Coach Flojob tried a risky pass. We had the chance to get on the plane to Dallas with our last play being a scoringRead More →

In addition to Minkah Fitzpatrick, the Phins are rumored to be shopping Kenyan Drake as well.  It only gets better for this team, doesn’t it.

This guy wasn’t even good enough to make our main 53-man roster.  And if you can’t even make it onto the Dolphins awful defense, that says something. He wasn’t good enough to be offered a job on our practice squad. He wasn’t good enough for any of the 31 other teams to sign. But… he has one of the coolest names in Dolphins history, so let’s hope he sticks around and excels.  And he’s a better DE than Charles Bust Harris.    Read More →

Right off the bat, we all know our line sucks. But even when they did a decent job on a few rare plays, the QBs didn’t help anyone.  Remember Josh Rosen’s first pass a Dolphin? He was on a rollout to his right and threw a poor pass.   Can’t blame the line there.   But Jakeem Grant kinda gave up on the ball.  Grant has to become a defender there, but instead he became a spectator.   I’m giving Rosen 85% of the blame there and 15 to Grant. What about Fitzpatrick’s ugly interception on our first series?   That’s mostly him.  He tried to hurry a passRead More →

Of all the shame and anger I felt as a Dolphin fan today, and out of all the inevitable things that occur when you play a superior team, I am most upset by the one thing the Dolphins COULD control. The Dolphin defenders are not talented enough to stop a surprisingly good offense.  And the Dolphin offense and its patchwork newcomer linemen were simply outclassed. I can live with that. But what I couldn’t stand for was the lack of effort and pride.  Ahead by 32 points, Jim Harbaugh called for a fake punt.  That is a bush-league,  dick move.  Ahead by more than 40 points, Harbaugh calledRead More →

Our chat room is open at http://dolphinstruth.com/chat/ Dolphins are a 6-7 point underdog on most lines.   I’m more interested in watching our D line today of all the units.  Is Christian Wilkins the real deal? On offense, I’m keeping my eye on Michael Dieter.  A future star guard, or just another temp? Raven have experience, but I’m not sold on their offense.  They will regret dumping Flacco.Read More →

Last night’s snooze-fest has re-emphasized my feelings of apathy for this upcoming season.   It’s been a long time since I wasn’t dying with anticipation for my beloved Dolphins’ opener. I’m sure I’ll get more into it as the season progresses.   We’ll either get closer to a #1 draft pick or we’ll surprise people by being a miracle team.  I can handle either of those scenarios.   But as I’ve said, I predict we’ll win 4-6 games and take ourselves out of the Top 3.   We play some really crappy teams this year, and we will get several wins.  Possibly even Sunday.   That Raven offense is nothing toRead More →

At least we have no primadonna crybabies left.  No one on the Dolphins is good enough to hold out! I’m sure many of you will disagree, but I found it disgusting that Jerry Jones caved in and spoon-fed Zeke Elliott all those millions.  It sets a really poor, dangerous precedent when a man can sign a legally binding contract and then say, “Nah, just kidding.  I want more money.” LaVeon Bell destroyed the 2018 Steelers with that kind of nonsense.  Melvin Gordon is about to destroy the Chargers.  I can respect Jerry Jones for not wanting that to happen to his beloved Cowboys, but hisRead More →

The Dolphins will get two (2)…TWO!!!…first-round picks in April. Presumably, the Dolphins’ own pick will be in the Top 3, possibly Top 5, or even #1 overall.   But we have some good playmakers on offense, and we could win 4-6 games this year and take ourselves out of a top spot.  But we’ll still hover in the Top 10. That’s where the Texans’ first-round pick comes in.  And you’re gonna hear it here first.  Many of you will doubt me, but here it is:  The Texans won’t be very good this year, and their draft pick will be very high.  We’ll be poised to receiveRead More →

In news that has been predicted for days, Kiko Alonso has been traded.   The Dolphins will receive LB Vince Biegel from the Saints.  Admittedly, I don’t know much about Biegel, but this trade needed to be made, as Kiko was showing signs of discontent. As Flyerfinfan correctly pointed out, Kiko was beaten out of a starting job fair and square.  And apparently he didn’t like it.  He started whining and demanding a trade. Here are my instant memories of Kiko: 1.  He won the Chargers game 3 years ago with a pick-6 against Philip Rivers with about a minute left in the game.   Behind theRead More →

The Dolphins finally had enough of Kenny Stills’ distractions and sent him to Houston.  As part of the same trade, Laremy Tunsil is gone. The happiest man today?  The doctor who performs ACL surgeries on QBs, because Ryan Fitzpatrick and Josh Rosen are dead men walking.   Some Miami area surgeons are gonna get a lot of work ! Apparently, the Dolphins received TWO first-round picks, plus a second-rounder as well.   That is 3 quality picks for some guys who have never been to a Pro Bowl.   Even the Dolphins can’t louse that up, can they?   This is on par with the Cowboys getting rid ofRead More →

It’s been a long time…probably my entire life…since I cared this little about a Dolphins game, preseason or otherwise.  I’ll watch and I’ll try to analyze who’s looking good and who should be cut (e.g., DeVante Parker), but there doesn’t seem to be any passion with this team.  There’s not a single player I’m excited to study tonight.  No drama about who will make the team and who won’t. For example, would it shock you if Kiko Alonso got cut?  Would it surprise you if he made the team?  Would you be upset either way?   I answer NO to all three of those, and itRead More →
