Welcome to Tua Week! The Miami Dolphins are officially past their bye week and preparing for a Sunday game against the Los Angeles Rams. The game will feature the first start of a (hopefully) long and glorious career for quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. There is excitement for the Dolphins fan base, with the hope that Miami finally has their answer to replacing Dan Marino.

Of course everything is speculative right now, but it does not matter. The Dolphins...

What Would be Tua’s Wrestling Entrance Theme Be?

Okay, it’s been five days since Tua was named the starter of the Miami Dolphins. I know we’ve been getting into shouting and sometimes physical altercations with friends and family over the decision to make Tua the guy, thus relegating Ryan Fitzpatrick to the bench.

Decisions like this can often bring out the worst in each other. But, what’s important is to realize when it’s time to move forward and understand that we can’t change what is. Today, the Dolphins will not be playing...

The Phinsider contributor picks are back for the Week 7 slate of games. This is the last time the Miami Dolphins will not be involved in our picks until after the season, so this is the last weekend where Dolphins fans can sit back, relax, and enjoy some football without the stress that the Dolphins can bring all of us.

It is also the last week of the season in which Tua Tagovailoa has not started an NFL game!

As for Week 6, I think...

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.

Phinsider Question Of The Day 10/24/2020

Photo by Michael Reaves/Getty Images

So now that our Miami Dolphins have made it to .500 the odds makers in Vegas have begun to notice us a bit more. We started out dead last or second to only the New York Jets to win the division by nearly every odds maker out there at the beginning of the 2020 season. Some oddsmakers still have us behind the Buffalo Bills and the New England Patriots while others now only have us second behind the Buffalo Bills. I think most any Dolphins fan who watched...

The Time And The Test Come Due For Tagovailoa

Photo by Michael Reaves/Getty Images

The day we all knew was coming has, mercifully, finally arrived. From the very moment his name was called on that Thursday night last April, we all knew that Tuanigamanuolepola Tagovailoa would be starting sooner than later. From my perspective, the idea of his sitting out the entire year was never really an option; they’d have wasted valuable time getting him acclimated to the NFL and the Dolphins’ offense, thus shrinking the window for the team...

You Don’t Get it if You’re At All Mad About how Fitzpatrick is Handling Everything

When Brian Flores decided on Tuesday morning to go ahead and insert Tua Tagovailoa into the starting lineup, relegating Ryan Fitzpatrick to the bench, I didn’t expect that I’d be writing this blog. But, when Fitzpatrick was asked by the media how he felt about the whole thing, Fitzpatrick didn’t hold back his human emotions, the ones we all have.

Man. Tough to watch. Here's Ryan Fitzpatrick explaining why he's heartbroken over the Dolphins QB decision. pic.twitter.com/4KjVnVZIgN

We finally clean up the last of the reviews from the Miami Dolphins’ 24-0 win over the New York Jets this past Sunday. We have already taken a look at the offensive snap counts in Week 6 for Miami, and now we pick up the defensive side of the ball. While this week’s defensive usage does not include something as drastic as the offense’s, where quarterback Tua Tagovailoa made his debut, there are some interesting playing times.

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 appear to be looking for help along the defensive line or are just doing their due diligence.

McDowell was a second round pick back in 2017 and has not played a single down...

The Fins are off this week, although I hope you all took the Fins and laid the points like I implored you all to do this week. That was the lockiest lock in the history of anything that had a lock or ever thought about locking. The easiest money in history. After domination in Santa Clara, everyone knew the quickly improving Fins were going to bust heads against the worst Jets team in history, especially with the ghost of Joe Flacco under center. ...

Today I was going to do a Caption This article, just to have a little fun on the Thursday of the bye week. As I was looking through all of the pictures available, I stumbled on to this gem. It made me just decide to completely scrap the caption this idea. Yesterday, Houtz wrote an article as thank you to Ryan Fitzpatrick as he now becomes the backup quarterback to Tua Tagovailoa. As Fitzpatrick called it, this is a “forever” move....

I wanted to make sure we kept up with everything, however, so today we will take a look back at the game through the playing time for each player.

The biggest news of the game was obviously the NFL debut for rookie quarterback Tua...
