Not sure if it’s good news or bad news, but he’s back. The NFL thumbed its noce at the Dolphins and Stephen Ross by waiting until the last possible day to announce this.   Literally, the NFL made us go through the draft, and free agency, and the beginning of camp today, before finally letting us know.   Thanks a lot. Anyway, I am curious to know your guys’ opinions on Dion the potential player, Dion the person (the drug use; apparently is was ecstasy and not steroids), and how he should be handled in games.  Or cut? Let us know…Read More →

As many of you know, the NFL has not officially determined if Dion Jordan is allowed to play this year. While he was suspended for a year and served that year, apparently the NFL still has to clear him.    Like a prisoner who is sentenced to a year and then serves his year, the judge can then keep him and his family in suspense and may decide to change his mind.   Okay, that last part was sarcastic; it’s based on the absurdly inconsistent guidelines the NFL has toward punishments. The thing that bothers me most is that the Dolphins don’t seem to care.Read More →

A Seahawks blog is already predicting that Seattle will beat the Dolphins in Week 1, and I really can’t argue with it. The Hawks are an elite team, facing the ever-changing, never-gelling Miami Dolphins.   It could be a bloodbath.  On opening day, every one of our offensive lineman will have someone next to him who he never played with before.  Meanwhile, Seattle’s fearsome defense has been together and knows all there is to know.   It’s gonna be ugly. Welcome to the NFL Mr. Laremy Pothead Tunsil. Except for the Super Bowl when Pete Carroll handed a free victory to New England, Russell WilsonRead More →

The Dolphins’ backfield just got a little more crowded heading into training camp, with the addition of Houston Texan Arian Foster. Foster gets hurt more often than Knowshon Moreno ever did, so let’s home he has a productive year.  It’s only a one-year deal, and it must have come cheap, because no one else wanted Foster. If Ajayi and the rookies do well in camp, it might turn out that Foster is a just a guy to use up minutes in the pre-season, when we don’t want our real RBs to get injured in the second half of those meaningless games while running behind 5thRead More →

I guess no news is good news. Dion Jordan didn’t get re-re-re-suspended.  The team didn’t announce any London “home” games or similar stupidity.  No one was indicted.    No one’s wife mouthed off. It’s good news for the Dolphins when we hear nothing about them.  Even from us at Dolphins Truth. So as we get ready for full training camp, here are a few of our thoughts overt the past few months, The funniest thing I’ve been reading is how the Dolphins are gonna have an attacking defense, and the offense  has a new system that will make it more fast-paced.   Neither of thoseRead More →

Reshad Jones pulled a Kam Chancellor. He tried holding out, realized the team wasn’t gonna budge, tucked tail and came back.   Good for Stephen Ross for not caving in to a man who already gave his word, in writing, that he would play. Was it because of our blog post the other day and all your comments that guilted him into returning?   Probably not (despite my joking headline above).  Although I did hear one time a few years ago from a fellow blogger in Denver that Wes Welker read one of my posts where I criticized Wes for siding with Nick Saban when NickRead More →

In a greedy, selfish move that will surprise no one, Reshad Jones did not show up for MANDATORY camp today and is officially a holdout. Jones embarrassed himself and the team last year by actively campaigning for himself to be in the Pro Bowl.   Instead of just waiting for the fans and coaches to pick him. However, neither of those options worked.  Jones was not selected by fans or coaches.   Yes, he did become a Pro Bowler, but that was only because all the other safeties ahead of him couldn’t play or had no interest in playing in such a silly game.  Read More →

The London Dolphins have once again shown how much they care for their own local fans. Once again, the Dolphins are moving a game away from their fans. Just like the Patriots playing their home games in London and the Broncos playing in Toronto, all the great championships teams like to screw over their fans and move games.   You can’t help but be sarcastic each time you hear about Dolphins’ Management pulling a fast one on its fans. When you hear the phrase “Miami Dolphins,” you have to accept that the Miami part is only a suggestion.   Why should “home” games be playedRead More →

After the Patriots got caught in the Deflategate turmoil, owner Robert Kraft said that they would accept whatever punishment the NFL handed them. That turned out to be the biggest lie in the NFL since Bill Parcells said he would not trade Jason Taylor, and then traded him to the Redskins.  The 2nd biggest lie since Nick Saban said that he was not going to Alabama.   Why do all the big lies involved Dolphins management? Anyway… When the wife beaters, steroiders, murderers, and other various potheads are suspended by Roger Goodell, they take their punishment like a man and disappear for a few weeks.   WhenRead More →

This week, the Dolphins faced some media scrutiny again, as former Dolphins writer Jason Cole wrote that Laremy Tunsil had a a bad ankle. The Dolphins denied it, of course. All you need to know about Jason Cole can be summed up here:   In 2011, Cole reported, AS FACT, that Jim Harbaugh had been hired as Dolphins’ coach. He didn’t report a speculation or a rumor or use any iffy language. He said it as fact, and he stated it was aRead More →

When NBC’s Pro Football Talk recently published an interview with Jonathan Martin, we knew we were in for an opinionated, biased account of Martin’s worldview right from the get go. The very first sentence called Martin a “victim,” which told us all we needed to know about how one-sided and dishonest the article would be. For some reason, a school had Martin come in to talk to 7th graders.   Why on earth would a school do this?  What can Martin possibly talk about?  Quitting?   Getting cut?  Being traded for next to nothing?  What else does he bring to the table? Right off theRead More →

So Laremy Tunsil has signed his contract, and the possibility of a long protracted holdout is averted.  So far, he is behaving and saying all the right things, and acting all the right ways.   We should all be grateful that both Tunsil and his agent have the wisdom to just sign the deal asap and start collecting their millions. Head Coach Adam Gase did away with Rookie Training Camp this year and instead replaced it with Rookie Classwork.  As has been reported in various media outlets, Gase apparently didn’t think that these young players needed to practice NFL football.   Instead, he wanted toRead More →

So it’s time to review the 2016 draft from last week, now that the dust has settled and I am over my grieving period about the loss of Jamar Taylor. So first up is Laremy Tunsil.   Right off the bat, we get a taste of controversy, due to the infamous mask-bong video.   But once the smoke cleared (pun fully intended), we find ourselves with a helluva player. I took some time to digest this pick. His football skills qualified him to be the top overall pick.   That’s a consensus from every single draft analyst out there.    We got perhaps the bestRead More →

I cannot wait for Laremy Tunsil to face off in practice against Dion Jordan.   It will be my greatest blog post ever that day!   Can’t wait to write captions for that photo! But seriously, folks…I was up half the night following every story I could on Laremy Tunsil, and every minute that went by seemed to be a new development.    Shockingly, the apologists were out as well, making their case that it’s only pot, so no big deal (more on those fools later). The main story, as we all must know, is that the Dolphins have generated yet another negative media stormRead More →

Unless he cries and whines his way to the courts (again), Tom Brady will miss the week 2 game against the Dolphins.   This means, in theory, that the Dolphins have their first chance to win a game in Foxboro since the advent of the Wildcat. As I’ve stated many times, the courts are not deciding on Brady’s guilt or innocence.  Rather, the courts are deciding whether the commissioner has the right to punish players.   Of course he does. Everyone knows this.   But last year the Patriots took their chances with a liberal judge and got their way.   This year, they metRead More →

The NFL is releasing the schedule TONIGHT! Usually the league announces the schedule-release date weeks in advance and advertises and promotes it like crazy.   This year, no dice.    Luckily, I heard about this and confirmed with the league. Tonight at 8 Eastern, we will learn when the Dolphins play, any MNF games, SNF games, TNF games, etc. We know the Dolphins play in L.A. this year, for example, and tonight we learn when.  Could be the first game of the year, as I imagine the NFL will want to give the new L.A. Rams a splendid home opener. The Dolphins are no longer aRead More →
