Arkansas QB Ryan Mallett has reportedly worked out for the Fins

In this run-up to the NFL Draft, one of the things we always hear about is a group of coaches from a team either visiting a player or being visited by one for a private workout. As John Congemi explains, the purposes of these workouts are quite varied…

With now just over a month to go until the start of the NFL Draft, an interesting question continues to be raised: how much of an impact should a team expect out of their rookie class?

As everyone knows, the 1972 Miami Dolphins are the only team to have an undefeated Super Bowl winning season in NFL history. Everyone also knows that the 2007 New England Patriots came frighteningly close to matching that achievement, after a perfect 16-0 regular season. On February 3, 2008, though, the New York Giants stood in front of destiny and thanks in large part to one of the most dramatic plays in football history, roadblocked the Pats and preserved the undefeated legacy of the ’72 Fins.

Tony Sparano recently received a two-year extension on his contract, which means he is slated to be the head coach of the Miami Dolphins through 2013. This will not be a quiet off-season, though, as Sparano must hire both a new offensive coordinator and a new QB coach. Our own QB, John Congemi, has plenty to say about what must be done between now and the first kickoff of ’11…

Jake Long and Cameron Wake have punched their tickets to the Pro Bowl

I’m a lucky guy. I get to talk and write about football all day. And I’m even luckier because of some of the guys I get to talk football with. One of those guys is Keith Sims. A three-time Pro Bowler as a member of the Dolphins, I’ve come to learn that Keith takes the Pro Bowl very seriously.

Sam celebrating one of his 38 career interceptions.

In last Sunday’s loss to the Browns, rookie CB Nolan Carroll saw what may have been a game-winning and season-saving interception slip right through his hands. Literally.

It was not the first time in this 2010 season that a member of the Dolphins’ secondary has seen glory come and go in an all-too-cruel way.

There are obviously plenty of things to discuss when it comes to the Dolphins 13-10 loss to the Browns. For most folks, though, it all boils down to the play of the quarterback.
