What QB will the Miami Dolphins be facing when they head to Washington week one?

The Dolphins seem ready to start the season. Their starting defense gave up only 2.9 yards per play against the Falcons on Saturday night. Miami’s week one opponent, the Washington Redskins, have had a rough off season to say the least. New coach, Jay Gruden, doesn’t seem to be a fan of Robert Griffin, the second overall pick of the 2012 draft. Gruden was so, so positive about...

During his rookie season he did pretty good catching 84 balls for 758 yards and five touchdowns, but now that he is the No. 1 option for Ryan Tannehill the expectations for his sophomore season are going to be much, much higher.If his preseason play is any indication he should have no trouble meeting and...

Dolphins years of misery finally over?

After viewing last night’s preseason win over the Atlanta Falcons, as a fan I’m feeling confident in the 2015 Dolphins.  For starters, the first units played solid despite not scoring more than 7 points on offense and allowing 3 points on defense.  Led by Ndamukong Suh, the Dolphins defensive line, specifically Earl Mitchell didn’t do anything but devour the Falcons bigs...

Joe Philbin has been displaying signs of an increased level of comfort around his players this year. In previous seasons he has appeared up tight and often withdrawn.
