The Splash Zone 1/28/21: Could There Be An Alabama Reunion In Miami?

Photo by Kevin C. Cox/ 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. Tua Tagovailoa didn’t have much to work with near the end of the season. His wide receiver and running backs were getting banged up and the backups weren’t doing much to help the rookie QB. The goal for this offseason should be to surround Tua with plenty of weapons to help him succeed in year 2. Which is why DeVonta Smith is a fan favorite to take with the #3 pick. Tua and Smith...

Phinsider Question Of The Day 01/27/2021

Phinsider Question Of The Day 01/27/2021

Photo by Mark Brown/ I came across a story today about the Super Bowl and the overall cost of just attending the game. We all know that the basic things outside of the cost of the game ticket are going to cost more money. Hotels will all of a sudden cost more for that week as will things like rental cars, etc... Why, because it’s a world of supply versus demand. Now this season's game might be a bit of an exception with only 22,000 people allowed to attend due to the pandemic and the fact that it is the first-ever “home game” for one of the two teams playing....

Fins’ Offensive Line Better, But Far From Complete

Fins’ Offensive Line Better, But Far From Complete

Photo by David Rosenblum/Icon Sportswire via Well, well, well, how time flies. Thirty years ago today, on January 27th, 1991, the greatest Super Bowl ever played took place at the same site of this year’s big game, although it was then known simply as ‘Tampa Stadium’. The New York Giants defeated the Buffalo Bills by the score of 20-19 when Bills kicker Scott Norwood missed a 47-yard field goal in the final seconds. To be sure, there have been plenty of other Super Bowls that it could be argued were more exciting than that particular game, but any time the...

Phinsider Question Of The Day 01/26/2021

Phinsider Question Of The Day 01/26/2021

Photo by Kathryn Riley/ Last night’s post was about the downfall of the Patriots since Tom Brady left for a warmer climate. Once Brady left the Patriots were looking for a starter and decided to sign former Carolina Panthers starter Cam Newton to be their starter, an experiment with mixed results. Cam looked great at times and not so much many more times. This has many of the NFL “experts” around the league suggesting that the Patriots will try and trade up and select one of the top quarterbacks in this year's draft. The Pats are more known for trading down but...

Brian Flores ‘still going through the process’ of finding next offensive coordinator

Brian Flores ‘still going through the process’ of finding next offensive coordinator

Photo by Timothy T Ludwig/ There’s not a whole lot we know about who the Miami Dolphin's next offensive coordinator will be. Some speculate it might be an in-house promotion for TEs coach George Godsey or RBs coach Eric Studesville, while others hope for a young, up-and-comer like Ken Dorsey or Mike Kafka. No one really knows. And that might include Dolphins’ head coach Brian Flores—who, when asked about the offensive coordinator position earlier today—said ‘he’s still going through the process’ of finding the team’s next offensive...

Phinsider Question Of The Day 01/25/2021

Photo by Mark Brown/ This past season was a good one for Miami Dolphins fans. Sure we missed the playoffs again but we could all see the massive amount of improvement in this team and the team's roster overall not to mention much better coaching than we have seen in these parts in a long time. With a good number of draft picks this year things look to only get that much better. The other thing that the Dolphins could finally be happy about was the apparent downfall of the team that has ruled the AFC East longer than some of our site members have been alive. The...
