On a scale from 1-10, let’s say that Tua HATERS are a ONE, and Tua LOVERS are a 10. 1 5 10 HATE TUA’s GUTS, Let Him Walk Eh LOVE HIM, and Must Keep Him There are plenty of ONES out there. Among the media, among us fans, probably among some Dolphins themselves. Lots of people think it’s best to end his tenure or else just keep him on his rookie salary and bring in some competition. There are some TENS out there as well, although I sense that even Tua’s most adamant supporters are at an 8 or a 9. I’ll go first andRead More →

Aside from the Dolphins winning the Super Bowl, the next-best thing occurred on Sunday, when the Buffalo Bills lost yet another gut-wrenching, soul-snatching heartbreaker. Listen, we know the Bills are going to lose in the playoffs. Their annual post-season losses are inevitable, whether it’s in Round 1 of the playoffs or later. That’s a given. They will lose. It’s not a big deal any more and not much fun to watch them lose their annual playoff game. But…what IS fun and what IS a big deal is when they lose these heartbreakers! The louder their obnoxious fans chirp about “Squish the Fish,” the sweeter itRead More →

While the referees stopped the game so that Patrick Mahomes could be fitted for a new helmet and then called Wilkins for roughing when he tapped Mahomes, and while the NFL allowed the Buffalo Bills to get an extra day of practice and rest because of some cold weather, the Miami Dolphins received no such unfair advantages. They then proceeded to go out and end their own season. Okay, so right off the bat, I’m not blaming the NFL or the refs for this loss. Our offense has been dead in the water since Black Friday, and no one came up with any innovation atRead More →

I had a family emergency Sunday night and could not watch the game live. I saw it on tape, later, and I’m glad I didn’t see it unfold live. I’ll start by saying what a gem of a game our defense played, perhaps its best of the year. Holding the Bills to only 14 points is incredible. 3 turnovers, including one of the best plays of the century by Christian Wilkins. The stop right before halftime. The stop on 4th and inches. Those are plays that the Bills “knew” they were going to pick up, but we imposed our will on them, and not viceRead More →

A lot of good things happened last season, but among the best was when we beat the Bills at home. It can happen again. There were a lot of great plays last year, but one single play stands out to me, and I’ve been meaning to write this for a long long time. More specifically, one particular PLAYER stands out to me on this one specific play. I’ll keep you in suspense for a while, but I will say that this guy won the game for us, then was let go in the off-season, but now is back with us…just in time for another homeRead More →

Rather than my typical diatribe about all the many things the Dolphins and Mike McDaniel did wrong vs. Baltimore (and there were tons), I’m going to focus on the positives and the potentials. We have a game next weekend, at home, that will secure us the #2 overall seed and at least one home playoff game. That’s the focus. Everyone will think I am nuts, but the Raven loss was CLOSER than it appeared on paper. 56-19 is a blowout, but it was closer than that if we eliminate just a few bad plays. Just a few. Tyreek Hill and Chase Claypool dropped easy TDRead More →
