    Front 5

    I really liked the defensive front of Vernon, Starks, Odrick, Mitchell, Wake that started the second half. Locked down the run while also providing great pass rush potential with the look. Did anyone else notice that?

    Surprise Cuts of 2014 Dolphins Training Camp

    This is just my opinion but based on some facts. Rishard Matthews - Armon Binns will beat him and we keep 6 WR including Thigpen Will Davis & Walt Aikens - They are not good enough and Jalil brown will make this team. Phillip Wheeler - Jelani Jenkins will beat him and we will not keep him as...

    Dolphins Should Pair Michael Thomas with Louis Delmas at Safety

    I think we really have 2 SS playing in the secondary with Jones and Delmas... They play like LB's and they can hit hard.. We need that safety who will cover the TE and even WR's in a zone defense. I think Michael Thomas has better coverage skills than Jones and also Jones has been unimpressive...

    Thad Lewis Torched Dolphins Twice!!! Kevin Coyle Gets a Free Pass???

    I really believe this defense should be a permanent 3-4 with the personnel we have instead of that hybrid 3-4 and 4-3.. How in the world could we get beat twice by a 3rd string QB and backup TE's moving the chains??? I'm not sure why the run defense got worst year after year and we still...

    WOW - One Week Philbin's a Hero, The next week He's a zero!!!! Come on Fans

    How can u guys switch so easily from love to hate and hate to love week after week??? The truth is that, we are not a playoffs team and I don't know why you would want the Dolphins to be humiliated like in the playoffs with this O-Line!!!! What I see is high hopes for next year, this team has...

    What's wrong with Dolphins Run Defense???

    The Run Defense was suppose to be our bread and butter. We are ranked 21st and we give up an average of 122.6 yds per game. This mean that teams are not only taking a lot of time off the clock to keep our so-so offense off the field, but also making our defense vulnerable to play-action passes...

    Sherman getting all the Blame!!! What about KEVIN COYLE DC???

    We can blame Sherman all we want but how come Coyle is getting a free pass with his defense? I know that Sherman play calling is terrible and was terrible in the 2nd half of the NE England game. BUT..... But let's not forget that our run defense is also really mediocre at best right now. We...

    One big problem with our D

    Another big issue to address is the defense giving up so many 3rd down and longs. This has happened every week. It's gotten to the point where it's almost better for an opposing offense to be in a third and long situation. What gives?

    Injuries from the game

    Ellerbe hurt his shoulder. Carroll his ribs. Anyone else? Heard any official reports on these injuries?

    3rd and 6 - 4th Quarter - 1.55 Min. to go - Jimmy Wilson Covering Reggie Wayne???

    I know we won and I'm happy we did... But how in the world did we even let Jimmy Wilson cover the Colts' best receiver on that 3rd and 6 which was the most important play of the game???? We all knew that Luck was going after the weakest link just like he went after Trusnik when Koa Misi was out...

    Dolphins vs Texans - Both Nolan Carroll & Jimmy Wilson not good enough backups

    First of all, I'm not a football guru, not a secondary coach, not an expert... But I can notice stuff like when a player is struggling while on the field. I'm not sure why Carroll keeps making this team year after year since he was drafted. He is getting beat by anyone (2ng string, 3rd string...

    The dolphins have no one special at the position clemons isn't going to cut it if we want to make the playoffs our secondary is mediocare compared to other teams thoughts?

    Good article on FA DE's This is from and lists all the available DE's in FA. I like they are sorted in groups. Honestly after Johnson, who got tagged, None of them really excite me. iMO we might be better...

    Our Defense is Good Enough -part 2

    I started a thread after the Pats loss about our defense and IMO it is good enough for Miami to win a Super Bowl if we could get our offense at an elite level. My simple point was the D isn't great but good enough. Our problem is we can't score any points to take the pressure off our D. Anyway...

    Defense is good enough

    To win a Super Bowl. I don't care what Anyone says they have the ability to keep Miami in every game. What we need is an offense who can score. If we had New England's or Houston's or Denver's or Baltimore's or Cincinnati's or heck most other team's offense Miami would be a top team. This...

    Crazy Fans/Posters -> We are Rebuilding...... Remember!!!

    This is the first time I'm reading so many negative/non-sense rants on this board. We had a 1-15 season and the forum wasn't like that.. I guess we have a new generation of Dolfans.. We are mad because we lost to the Colts who are more talented than us defensively and offensively.. Remember...

    After 5 games, How do you Feel About Ireland Now???

    I will continue to say that - We are not coaches and that's why we have a day job..... I know Ireland failed in Free Agency because of NoNoo, and Hicks, and T. Johnson, and Chad, etc... But we did not overpay for Mario Williams and Anderson (Buffalo is not pressuring the QB that much) We also...

    Dansby thinks the defense can be great --- I figured I'd post this since the news is slow these days. I don't have a problem with this since I do agree the D can be really good. Hopefully he follows his own advice on that last part...

    Undrafted Rookie that will Surprise/Make Instant Impact

    We all know how lucky we got with Bess as he was undrafted and he is probably one of the best slot receivers in the league. We have a few undrafted rookies including popular WR Jeff Fuller because of his familiarity with the offense. My pick is someone on defense - Jacquies Smith This guy...
