Mark your calendars for Week 3.   THAT is the game that will tell us all we need to know about the 2015 Miami Dolphins. Why not Week 1 or 2?  Well, let’s look at Week 1 last year.  We defeated New England, and talk began about how it was out year to overtake them.  That victory was meaningless.  We simply caught the Patriots an an opportune time.   You can’t judge a team by how well they do too early. This year’s insightful game is against the Bills.  This was the same team that I said last year would tell us all we needRead More →

Not too many outright surprises over the weekend, but a few moves that made us go “Hmmm.” The first thing that caught my attention ( and I mildly disagree with this move) was that the Dolphins kept WR Matt Hazel.  Management explained that Hazel played well in the pre-season and deserved the roster spot. I agree that he played well.  But so did Mike Hull. So did Mike Gillislee.  And Sam Brenner.  Playing well is expected.  That should not give you a roster spot, especially at a position where we were already extremely deep. We should have kept five.  Six WRs is unheard of.  Read More →

I’ll say this right off the bat:    I don’t see how Damien Williams is ranked higher on the depth chart than LaMike James and Mike Gillislee. But it’s especially baffling to see Williams ranked higher than Jay Ajayi, given how good Jay looked last night Last night, Ajayi showed why we drafted him:  he’s a bruising runner who can make the first guy miss and then run over the second guy. Williams, Gillisleee, and James have some moves, but they are not overpowering.  The next time Lamar Miller runs through a would-be tackler will be the first.  Ajayi is different. Plus, he is British,Read More →

Tom Brady whining and crying and appealing means bad news for the Dolphins. A few months after Patriot  liar owner Robert Kraft said that the Patriots would accept whatever fate the NFL handed them, Tom Brady’s whining got his suspension erased.   And that’s bad news for Miami. Well, it’s not horrible news. The Patriots were going to win the AFC East with or without Brady for those 4 games.   But now they will win it even easier. Let’s face it, the Dolphins added a star player or two this off-season, just like they do every year.  They had a good draft (on paper),Read More →

Brandon Fields, who was named to the Pro Bowl in 2013, then got a HUGE raise, and then rewarded the Dolphins by having his worst season ever, has been cut. The normally reliable Fields blew too many punts last year, making this decision a little easier. I don’t mind that the Dolphins cut him.  Let’s hope the new rookie does just as well. What bothers me is that it appears to be a cost-cutting move.  All we hear about is Mr. Ross will spend whatever it takes and…blah blah blah.   Cut the guy if you think the rookie is better, but don’tRead More →
