Miami Dolphins: Team goes backwards with coaching youth movement

/ / Football
The Miami Dolphins are bucking the trend with coaching hires. The Miami Dolphins have hired two coaches in the past month who are on the older side of things. Offensive coordinator Chan Gailey is 68, while Steve Marshall, the new offensive line coach, is 63. I have no problems with either of the hires, aside ...

What's Wrong With the Miami Heat's Defense?

What’s Wrong With the Miami Heat’s Defense?

/ / Basketball
This is bad. A 1-2 road trip isn't the end of the world. Heck, losing to the Brooklyn Nets and New York Knicks (yuck) isn't all that bad. They're two losses in an 82-game schedule that, to this point, the Heat have probably overachieved in. The way that those games were lost, however, is pretty ...

Fresh Perspective: Potential new cap rules mean Dolphins should spend heavily

/ / Football, South Florida
Several months ago, I wrote up a massive offseason plan based on both free agency and the 2020 NFL draft. The Miami Dolphins would have gotten star free agents, stud prospects, and a franchise quarterback in it. Not only that, I was about to redo that plan to reflect the confirmed draft positions. However, some ...

Should Miami Heat Embrace Villain Status Once Again?

Should Miami Heat Embrace Villain Status Once Again?

/ / Basketball
Being the villain worked for the Miami Heat once, can it again? The Miami Heat took care of another road win Wednesday at Indiana 122-108, but the storyline was not the result. Instead the focus was on a battle (one-sided) between Jimmy Butler and Indiana's T.J. Warren. Latest for ⁦@5ReasonsSports⁩ Jimmy Butler, Miami Heat fire ...

Pressure Point: Tua presents difficult draft dilemma for Dolphins

/ / Football, South Florida
Tua Tagovailoa, the quarterback of Dolfans fantasies for much of the past year, may well be there for the taking when the Dolphins make their pick at No. 5 in the 2020 NFL draft. The Dolphins may be wise to take a pass. What, after the incessant #tankfortua talk and all the offers of selling ...

The pressure is on Chris Grier to rebuild the Miami Dolphins through the draft.

Jake’s Take: Time for Miami to complete the process and draft Tua Tagovailoa

/ / Football, South Florida
When the Dolphins defeated the Colts on Nov. 10, plenty were concerned that the process was off the tracks. It was rumored that Miami had its sights on Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa before the 2019 season. Plenty changed throughout the season, except Miami's focus on Tagovailoa. Joe Burrow became the focus of the 2020 draft ...

What Hassan Whiteside means to where Miami Heat stand now

What Hassan Whiteside means to where Miami Heat stand now

Hassan Whiteside’s polarizing return to Miami perfectly symbolized where the Heat stand since they dealt him last summer.  Try and remember Fall 2014. A few months after LeBron James’ sudden departure. The Miami Heat are off to a shaky start to the post-LeBron era, and early in November end up cutting former high-flyer Shannon Brown ...

50 Things that were relevant the last time Chan Gailey coached the Dolphins

/ / Football, South Florida
Earlier this week, the Miami Dolphins announced the hiring of 67-year-old Chan Gailey as the team's new offensive coordinator. Chan Gailey is so old, he invented the spread offense.  No really, I think he did. Truth is, the last time Chan Gailey roamed the Dolphins sideline, the team played in back to back playoff games ...

Chan Gailey to the Dolphins: A New Look at Running Backs

/ / Football, South Florida
It was a week ago when I revealed a conversation I had with somebody familiar with the Miami Dolphins' front office thinking. In that conversation, I got around to asking about the running back room and was surprised with what was revealed.  The Dolphins believe Ohio State back J.K. Dobbins to be the “best of ...

Dolphins coach Brian Flores says will be in for a long season in 2019 with young, inexperienced Dolphins team.

Jake’s Take: A New Year should bring new perspective surrounding the Miami Dolphins

/ / Football, South Florida
Rebellions are built on hope. The Miami Dolphins escaped New England with a 27-24 victory on Sunday. More importantly — they have the Death Star plans. We've been here before. The empire is crumbling - the blueprints are in place. This wasn't supposed to happen. The Dolphins were on track to be the NFL's worse ...
