Dolphins land QB in latest SB Nation Mock Draft

In 1983, the Miami Dolphins used their first-round draft choice to select quarterback Dan Marino. They did not use another first-round pick on a quarterback until 2012, when they added Ryan Tannehill. While reports have indicated the team could look at the 2019 NFL Draft as a chance to built the foundation of the team - focusing on the offensive and defensive lines - then use the 2020 Draft to find their “franchise” quarterback, there is still a strong possibility that Miami’s next use...

The Dolphins betting on 2020 draft for QBs shows foresight, but has pitfalls

Does eyeing a top pick in the 2020 draft send the wrong message to Dolphins players and fans? It could be a tricky maneuver in 2019.

The Splash Zone 1/16/19: Miami Dolphins New Approach

Welcome to the Splash Zone, the quickest way to get your day started off right. We bring you a rundown of Miami Dolphins news from the last 24 hours.

The Dolphins are entering rebuild mode but plan to wait to draft a quarterback in the 2020 NFL Draft. Where the Dolphins sit now, at 13, they don’t have much of a chance at getting one of the top quarterbacks in this draft unless they trade up. But that’s where Kyler Murray comes in. The Heisman Trophy winner recently declared he would...

Dolphins land one on PFWA All-Rookie Team, one on All-AFC Team

A couple of Miami Dolphins players were recognized for great individual seasons.

The Pro Football Writers of America announced their All-NFL, All-AFC/NFC, and All-Rookie teams on Tuesday, with a couple of Miami Dolphins landing on the lists. For the All-AFC Team, Miami was represented by cornerback Xavien Howard, while the All-Rookie team included kicker Jason Sanders. A surprising name not listed for the Dolphins was rookie defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick.

Howard tied for the league lead...

Clint Clearwater’s 2019 NFL Mock Draft

It is full swing mock draft season now & the 2019 off season is well underway for the Miami Dolphins, since we, yet again, missed the playoffs. The Dolphins will enter this off season with needs across the board, none greater than the QB position. The 2019 QB class is an interesting one - there’s not 1 prospect that I am in love with. I think they are all different and have different skill sets and set backs; but so far, for me, there’s not that 1 guy that I’d pound the table for. ...

Bob Kuechenberg one of Hall of Fame’s biggest snubs

In Super Bowl VI, the Miami Dolphins lost to the Dallas Cowboys in a game that featured Nick Buonuconti, Larry Csonka, Bob Griese, Jim Langer, Larry Little, and Paul Warfield, all future Hall of Fame players for the South Florida franchise (plus coach Don Shula). A year later, the Dolphins beat the Washington Redskins in Super Bowl VII to complete the only perfect season in league history, with that same group of future Hall of Fame players. A year later, the Dolphins again won, this time...

Retain, Tag, or Walk? - Travis Swanson

A look at Miami Dolphins center Travis Swanson ahead of free agency.

The NFL regular season is behind us, and, while four teams are still fighting to become Super Bowl champions, the majority of the league is preparing for the 2019 league year. While the league year, and thus free agency, does not begin until March 13, teams are working their way through their own rosters right now, trying to make tough decisions. Do they cut a player for salary cap reasons? Do they restructure a contract to...

The Splash Zone 1/15/19: Brian Flores Looking To Bring Jim Caldwell With Him

Welcome to the Splash Zone, the quickest way to get your day started off right. We bring you a rundown of Miami Dolphins news from the last 24 hours.

Brian Flores isn’t the head coach of the Dolphins yet, but that doesn’t mean he can’t start putting together a coaching staff. One report is that Jim Caldwell will be joining Flores in Miami in an assistant head coach role, not as an offensive coordinator. It’s a smart move by Flores who has no head coaching experience whatsoever. I...

Miami Herald: Five teams interested in hiring Dolphins' Darren Rizzi

Darren Rizzi interviewed for the Dolphins coaching job that is likely to go to Brian Flores, but the special teams coordinator is a coveted commodity around the league. The Packers are set to interview him, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com tweets. Miami wants to retain Rizzi, who has been with the team throughout the 2010s, but has given him permission to seek employment elsewhere. That may soon prompt an extensive interview circuit. Five teams are interested in bringing him aboard, Barry Jackson of...

Adam Gase gets meme treatment for odd facial expressions

Adam Gase’s introductory press conference with the New York Jets was memorable but probably not for a great reason. As Gase headed to the podium and sat down at a table, his eyes widened and started darting around. He continued that sort of odd behavior with his eyes during some responses throughout the press conference and became a meme in no time. Take a look at some of the memes and captions: How did Gase manage to coach the Miami Dolphins for so long without any of this behavior...

Mike Gesicki: Draft bust or just a rookie tight end?

Did the Miami Dolphins make a mistake in selecting tight end Mike Gesicki? Or was he a rookie at a position where it normally takes time to adjust to the NFL?

With the 42nd overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, the Miami Dolphins selected Penn State tight end Mike Gesicki. The addition of a 6-foot-6, 245-pound receiving tight end capable of working from inline to outside as a receiver was a dynamic addition to the Dolphins’ offense and should have given quarterback Ryan Tannehill a key...

On this exciting post divisional-round Monday, the New York Jets introduced their new head coach, Adam Gase. During the press conference, Gase displayed some very curious eyeball movement and overall expressions. Once the Gase footage hit social media, the Twitter world went into an absolute frenzy with comment over Gase’s weird behavior. pic.twitter.com/YG58762UeT — Kimberley A.

Adam Gase has strange explanation for poor stats in Miami

Adam Gase was introduced to a skeptical New York media on Monday, and he had a rather odd explanation for his lack of success with the Dolphins. Gase arrived in Miami with a reputation as an excellent offensive coach, but the Dolphins finished in the bottom ten among NFL teams in both points and total yardage during his final two years there. This was brought up to the new Jets coach during the press conference, and his explanation probably won’t convince many. It rings rather hollow when...

Divisional Round Games

I was hoping today would bring slightly better news after the games this weekend. If you watched them then you already know that Rams did their job to knock out Cowboys, the Colts did not play like everyone assumed, and the Chargers failed miserably. Not exactly the same Patriots that played against us in Miami. The positive we can take away from the Chargers vs Patriots game is that their defense was legit and if Brian Flores did indeed lead...

Jim Caldwell is expected to join Brian Flores’ staff in Miami

But at what capacity?

Arguably, the most frustrating part about the Adam Gase era, is how poor the offense truly was.

The play-calling was bad.

The personnel was infuriating.

Overall, it was ugly.

So when Dolphins’ General Manager Chris Grier searched far and wide for the team’s next head coach, one of their tasks would be to convince Grier things would be different.

We all know Brian Flores is going to be the next head coach of the Miami Dolphins, but how would his staff...

Dolphins enter offseason poised for complete rebuild

The Dolphins are entering a complete rebuild in 2019, with a new head coach, new front office head, and likely a new quarterback. New GM Chris Grier is continuing to make moves, as he’s bringing in Bills national scout Marvin Allen to be his new assistant GM, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.com (Twitter link). It’s the latest in a series of coaching and front office swaps teams have made in the AFC East, with Adam Gase going from the Dolphins to the Jets, Brian Flores going from the...
