The loss of Danell Ellerbe certainly stings, but it’s very good to know that the backup linebackers came through so well.  As we noted last Sunday,  we never thought that Jason Trusnik was a superstar, and maybe he still is not.   But he played his heart out on Sunday, and he certainly won our praise. Chris McCain proved he belongs, and we hope Wheeler and Misi can come back soon to complement him. The Patriots players and coaches were pretty respectful to the Dolphins in all their comments.  They admitted that the Read More →

Chris Gasper of the Boston Globe had the best line to describe just how good the Dolphins linemen were (both offensive and defensive lines). “South Beach nightclubs have lines that are tougher to get through than the ones the Patriots presented Sunday.”Read More →

First the Highs Cameron Wake.  His sacks were crucial to the comeback win. Knowshon Moreno.  We can only hope that Philbin drastically reduces Lamar Miller’s playing time.  Moreno earned his keep today. Offensive line. Anchored by Samson Satele, the line showed up today.  While they didn’t dominate every phase throughout the entire game, they played great ball.  The run blocking was strong, and the pass blocking held up.  These 5 guys canRead More →

Is it true that Tom Brady wore uniform number 91 in Sunday’s Dolphin victory? Every time we looked up, Brady had #91 on him.Read More →

First of all, let’s start with the Dolphins Truth Game Ball being awarded to… Samson Satele. That’s right.  After watching the game live and then studying it on tv, we are proud to give the Game Ball to center Samson Satele. While Knowshon Moreno (or Cameron Wake) are more popular picks, it was Satele whoRead More →

With Ryan Tannehill as the team’s sure starter and Matt Moore as the clear backup, the Dolphins were faced with an interesting dilemma this off-season. Pat Devlin, Brady Quinn, and Seth Lobato all had a legitimate chance to earn the #3 spot.  But what many people didn’t see coming was thatRead More →

Don Jones and Marcus Thigpen are now members of the New England Patriots.  Or at least their practice squad. How much about the Dolphins can Thigpen and Jones reveal to their new boss, Coach Bill Belichick?  Probably not too much.  Thigpen and Jones will not be standing right beside Belichick this Sunday and revealing formations to him.   They might be able to help the Pats analyze our game plan, but those things are overrated.   The players have to execute, even if they know what’s coming. So this news isn’t devastating.  It would be a lot worse if Thigpen were signed to the PatsRead More →

First the best: Cutting Michael Egnew was the best move the team has made this off-season.  Egnew had two full years to earn his keep, and he did absolutely nothing.  Again.  The Ireland-Philbin era somehow was too blind to see that Egnew wasn’t a good player.   They gave him charity and kept him on the squad the last two years.   Thank goodness that new GM Dennis Hickey won’t stand for that nonsense andRead More →

We’re not sure why the Dolphins brought in Brady Quinn in the first place now that he has been cut.  It seemed that Quinn would be a decent third-stringer, especially after we released Pat Devlin. Rookie tight end Arthur Lynch was placed on IR, so he will be unable to play this whole season.   The same for  Mike Gillislee.  We liked Gillislee a lot, and a lot of people disagree, but we feel he is a better all-around back than Lamar Miller.   Miller has had two years to shine, and he simply hasn’t done it.  But we seem pretty deep at RB, so the lossRead More →

A few random thoughts about recent Dolphins events. You can agree or you can disagree, but here at Dolphins Truth, it’s all about careful analysis and truth-telling to keep Dolphin fans as the best-informed fans in the NFL. Michael Egnew has been cut. This news is two years too late. We’ve been screaming for his realease for years. Here at Dolphins Truth, there’s an old lady who comes in and cleans our garbage bins each night. That old lady has the same number of NFL touchdowns as Michael Egnew. He was aRead More →

It’s probably a little too late, but the Dolphins owed this to Brady Quinn. Scam Cameron certainly owed him. It’s not a terrible move.  Pat Devlin just was not an NFL-caliber quarterback.  Quinn is.  Or was.  Or at least might be.   A maybe is better than a not. Quinn does have experience.  He’s never played for aRead More →

Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald recently said it was foolish for anyone to write off Dion Jordan as a bust.   That just proves how foolish Beasley is. Friday night, Dion Jordan played against the Falcons’ third- and fourth-string wannabe bench-warmers, and he didn’t make a single play. He couldn’t beat guys who were just picked up aRead More →

We at Dolphins Truth try to remain positive.  We try not to rain on everyone’s parade.  We’re happy with great plays and even more happy with victories.  But sometimes, even positive outcomes need to be scrutinized. Last year, for example, while everyone was celebrating how great Miami was because we had just defeated the mighty Steelers, we at Dolphins Truth were the only ones whoRead More →

For the second time this summer, a Dolphin has been suspended because they don’t know what they are putting into their own bodies.  Reshad Jones and Dion Jordan are both out 4 games each because they took banned substances. There is a question about if they did this knowingly.  Did they take a banned substance knowingly and hope to avoid getting caught?  Or did they truly not know what was in theirRead More →

In an excellent move, the Dolphins re-signed center Samson Satele, a much-needed improvement and a much-better option than Joe Philbin’s recent philosophy of “Let’s take a guy who never played center in his life and make him our starting center.” First thing we point out is that Satele was alwaysRead More →
