Dolphins owner Stephen Ross has spoken out to say that the Dolphins would not care if Michael Sam is gay when it comes to evaluating him as a potential Dolphin. We at Dolphins Truth agree that Sam’s sexualRead More →

It seems that Ted Wells has been preparing his Incognito-Martin report for about 17 years, doesn’t it? Wells was appointed in early November, after Martin turned his back on his teammates in October and ran away. Wells interviewed all the parties involved over a few weeks. That process was pretty done in early November. Here we sit, more than three months later, awaiting this slowpoke to deliver his report. Boy, I wish I had 3+ months to write reports. Roger Goodell is obviouslyRead More →

It’s still the beginning of the year, but 2014’s best comedy is out already.  It’s called the Jonathan Martin interview publicity stunt, and it aired on NBC. Dolphins Truth is happy to provide you a look at this complete stunt, and not the just the snippets you’ve read about: No, it’s not a comedy because a 300-lb man felt picked on.  It’s not a comedy because he turned his back on his team.  It’s not comedic to hear him say how no Dolphin contacted him (all right, we admit that part is pretty funny…Martin claimsRead More →

In an interview with NBC News on Tuesday, Jonathan Martin, the traitor to the Dolphins, said, “Wah wah wah.”  Wait, we made a mistake and he didn’t really say that. He did, however, say that players used vulgar language in the locker room, and that is why he turned his back on the team and quit.Read More →

The Miami defense gave up about 20 points per game.* That is an outstanding number, and every Dolphin executive, coach, player, and fan needs to realize that if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. It’s such a simple philosophy, but oh so true. * Actually, the Defense gave up a lot less that 20 points per game. If you take away all the free points that Ryan Tannehill handed to other teams, the average is a lot less. It’s not Kevin Coyle’s fault that Tannehill threw a pick-6 to Buffalo, for example, and toRead More →

There are recent reports about several GM candidates being confused about whose authority will  outrank whose, and Mr. Ross must clear this up immediately. It’s important to lay down the law about the power structure in the decision-making process. But one thing is clear: Dolphins Truth is strongly urging that the new GM have more decision-making power than Joe Philbin.  In this column, we explain the reasons why. The greatest GM in the world will be powerless if he is undermined by the coach. We’re not saying that Jeff Ireland was the greatest ever; we’re not even saying he was effective. But you cannot blameRead More →

As we watch yet another battle of Manning vs. Brady, let’s hope that same time next year we have new new faces in there,.  Especially Tannehill. The more we hear about Bill Lazor, the more promising it looks.  Of course, the Dolphins’ success next season ultimately depends on the players themselves and upon Joe Philbin. The other playoff game features two young QBs who the Dolphins could have had.  But Philbin chose Tannehill instead, so let’ s hope that next year at this time, Ryan is proving himself better than those guys, since he was selected in the draft well ahead of them both.Read More →

Mike Sherman was fired as coach of the Packers after going 4-12 in the 2005 season. That year, he had BOTH Aaron Rodgers AND Brett Favre on the same team. That is not a typo. Sherman had TWO Hall of Fame QBs on the same team, and he only won four times. He was rightfully fired. Texas A & M then stepped in and hired him. Sherman went on to lose every Bowl game he ever coached in. He was fired again. still with zero accomplishments on his coaching resume. So when 32 NFL teams had a chance to hire the unemployed Sherman, 31 of thoseRead More →

1. Welcome, sir. We’re all very excited to have you come aboard. We’re putting away all pessimism and look forward to what you bring to the table. You just spent a season working for Chip Kelly and his fast-paced, exciting offense. Maybe you even helped create that offense. You helped turn Philly into a playoff team in only one year. 2. QB Sneaks are legal in the NFL. No one is sure why Mike Sherman never called a QB sneak. We had numerous 3rd-inches and 4th-inches throughout the season, but Sherman never called the sneak. Even worse, Joe Philbin never stepped in to correct this. ForRead More →

There have been a lot of reports about the rift between Joe Philbin and Jeff Ireland.  If you believe the Miami media, the rift began when Jeff Ireland demanded changes after we got beat by a winless Tampa team.  Our offense was terrible that night, and Ireland rightfully demanded Philbin change some things. Rumor has it that Ireland wanted Mike Sherman gone.  It’s rare for any Dolfan to side with Ireland, but in this case, Ireland was 100% correct. Of course, Philbin would not fire his best friend Mike Sherman.  So this situation apparently got elevated all the way up to Mr. Ross, who choseRead More →

Tune in early to see two QBs the Dolphins should have had, Drew Brees and Russell Wilson, battle it out.  In the late game, watch Tom Brady (come to think of it, we had 5 chances to draft Brady, and blew that too) dissect an overrated Indy Colts team.  Three of the NFL’s best quarterbacks that all could have been Dolphins. Dolphins Truth laments the ones who got away.Read More →

While there’s no question that the Dolphins shot themselves in the foot to eliminate themselves from playoff contention, there are a few other factors that played into it as well. Some of these factors are large and still looming, while others are more subtle. But they all involve the NFL itself. We’re not saying that the NFL favors the Patriots over the Dolphins, but you have to look at some factors. One of these factors is the unbalanced schedule. The NFL’s schedule makers hold enormous power. What seems like a “fair and balanced” schedule never really is. For example, the Saints had to travel toRead More →

So far, the names of potential offensive coordinators have been less than inspiring, but it is still early. Here at Dolphins Truth, we’d prefer a new GM in place first, and then let that GM hire the OC. Last time we let Joe Philbin hire his own OC, you see where that got us. Philbin simply is not a good judge of talent, plus he hired a good friend of his.  Then he let his friend hire his son-in-law.  Enough of that nonsense.  Enough. Gary Kubiak wants to be a head coach and won’t accept an OC position. Head coaches who are “demoted” to coordinatorsRead More →

Stephen Ross is a strong businessman, so we can assume the firing of Jeff Ireland was not irrational. One hopes that Mr. Ross investigated the past few years of failure in an attempt to get to the bottom of–specifically–whose fault it was. Step one was obvious: Mike Sherman spent the last two years calling horrendous plays. He refused to call for QB sneaks on 3rd-inches and 4th-inches. He called for pass plays when we simply had to run out the clock. He called for running plays when the defense knew what was coming. We could go on and on, but suffice it to say thatRead More →

The loss of Mike Sherman is a good start, but we’re unconvinced that Joe Philbin has learned any kind of lesson whatsoever. Let’s face it: Mike Sherman called terrible plays for the last two years and clearly deserved to lose his job. The Dolphins need a firey young play caller who can utilize the players much better. We need a play caller who will call a QB sneak now and then. Or a bootleg. Or a pitchout. Or a dozen other plays that were not in Mike Sherman’s book. So yes, it’s good that he is gone. But what remains truly TROUBLING is that Sherman’sRead More →
