The Splash Zone 8/18/18: Dolphins Lose To Panthers 27 - 20

The Splash Zone 8/18/18: Dolphins Lose To Panthers 27 - 20

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. Ryan Tannehill looked sharp last night, but just couldn’t get anything going on offense. The Dolphins were running a dink and dunk play scheme and the Panthers weren’t having it. The defense gave up two big play touchdowns and just made a ton of mental errors all game. Bryce Petty played really well on his lone drive. He ended scoring on a 15 yard keeper and gave the Dolphins their only touchdown of the night. You can...

Dolphins at Panthers final score and immediate reactions

Dolphins at Panthers final score and immediate reactions

The Miami Dolphins and Carolina Panthers have completed their Preseason Week 2 contest, with the Dolphins falling to the Panthers, 27 - 20. 1st Half Surprisngly, Adam Gase left the starting offense in well into the 2nd quarter. And as I sat and ate some Spicy Sweet Chili Doritos, I couldn’t help but get ticked off at the Panthers announce for mispronouncing Tannehill. Speaking of Ryan Tannehill, the Dolphins starting quarterback looked sharp throwing the quick short to intermediate throws. It just appeared like Gase was trying to protect his quarterback. No one on the starting offense...

Miami Dolphins @ Carolina Panthers Game Information and Live Thread

Miami Dolphins @ Carolina Panthers Game Information and Live Thread

Your Miami Dolphins will take on the Carolina Panthers this evening in their second game of the pre-season as an away game. Their first pre-season game saw them lose to the Tampa Ba Buccaneers at home at Hard Rock Stadium. Tonight will hopefully serve to answer some more questions about this roster for both the coaching staff and the fan base. One position to keep an eye on tonight is corner-back with rumors that the team is in the market for a starting caliber corner to start opposite Xavian Howard. As with all of our live threads please continue to follow all site rules as with any other...

My Preferred Scheme for the 2018 Miami Dolphins: The Run Game and Play Action Passing

My Preferred Scheme for the 2018 Miami Dolphins: The Run Game and Play Action Passing

Don’t get it twisted, this isn’t a knock on Ryan Tannehill. It’s about highlighting everyone’s strengths. Play Action in Theory Screw numbers and efficiency ratings for a moment, let’s contemplate what play action actually accomplishes: it causes the defense to pause. In a game of inches, hundredths of a second, and tight throwing windows, forcing the defense to take precious time diagnosing and reacting can make all the difference. There are only a handful of ways offenses are able to create the “freeze”. Read-option action or a fake jet sweep have the same principle as a...

The Play That Almost Killed Me - Miami Dolphins Vs. Pittsburgh Steelers, 2013

The Play That Almost Killed Me - Miami Dolphins Vs. Pittsburgh Steelers, 2013

In 2013, the Miami Dolphins travelled to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in the snow. I can remember the feeling of dread that overcame me like it was yesterday, yet it happened on December 8, 2013. My buddy and I made our annual excursion to a Miami Dolphins away game, and the tilt vs. the Pittsburgh Steelers was the game we had circled on our schedules. Pittsburgh can be a brutal place in the winter, and on this particular day, the snow was plentiful. You could barely see green on the field. My buddy and I drank our whiskey, bundled up, and headed into Heinz Stadium. I even bought a pink...

Dolphins at Panthers Preseason Week 2 TV schedule, online stream, odds, weather, more

The Miami Dolphins’ 2018 preseason continues on Friday as the team heads north to visit the Carolina Panthers. The Dolphins are coming off a loss last week to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in an entertaining game that featured some strong performances from some of the Dolphins players, but left some question marks still to be addressed before the regular season begins. The Dolphins shook things up this week, including releasing defensive tackle Gabe Wright after a fight at practice and the addition of veteran defensive tackle, and former Dolphins player, Kendall Langford. The team is also...

The Splash Zone 8/16/18: Dolphins Have No Intention Of Trading Parker

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. DeVante Parker will be out the next 4-6 weeks with a broken finger and there was/is speculation that the Miami Dolphins could look to trade the wide receiver. However, that is not in their plans and for as inconsistent as he’s been, the team refuses to give up on his potential. With Ryan Tannehill back, perhaps Parker and he can find that chemistry again like they had going in 2016, if Parker can stay healthy. You can check...

Dolphins Drinking Game - P2

Dolphins Drinking Game - P2

Panthers! Meowy-what? As a lifelong fan of the Miami Dolphins, going all the way back to the Stone Age of the early 1980s, I’ve learned that fandom isn’t always epic highs & euphoria. Hell, if the post-Marino era has taught us anything it’s that we as a franchise & fanbase have been mostly spoiled for the bulk of our existence thanks to the leadership of “The Don” Shula and The Right Arm of God, Dan Marino. Since both stepped aside by the spring of 2000, the past 17 years have been about as fun as an involuntary colonoscopy thanks to poor leadership and mismanagement. Sure, we...

The Splash Zone 8/15/18: DeVante Parker Has A Broken Finger

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 Miami Dolphins are going to be down a receiver as DeVante Parker will be out for a few weeks with a broken finger. Parker is unable to catch a ball at the moment but this opens the door for the other receivers on the roster. Albert Wilson and Jakeem Grant have a chance to showcase what they have in a bigger role with Parker out. Parker has flashed the potential, but he just hasn’t been able to stay healthy and put it all...

Miami Dolphins training camp is coming to an end

Miami Dolphins training camp is coming to an end

The Miami Dolphins 2018 edition of training camp came to a close today. There are still many questions surrounding the Dolphins roster and how it will suss out. Thus far the offense has been dominated by the defense. Pre-snap penalties and false starts continually haunt the Dolphins offense. Eventually the offensive players will need to be held accountable for these mistakes. Offensive line coach Jeremiah Washburn had right tackle Ja’Waun James run a lap around the field after committing a pre-snap penalty during Monday’s practice. My personal feeling is that much more needs to be done...

2018 Hall of Fame Inductees Announcement

I would first like to apologize for the delay in getting the results up for everyone and we still have more voting to go which has also been delayed as life continues to get in the way. Also my AirBNB did not have nearly the solid internet that I needed to post consistently. So after that info that no one probably cares about we get onto our announcements. This years class is a list of people that all deserve to be inducted and there were many others that missed the cut that would also have been equally deserving but there is next year and hopefully we can get these up earlier in the year...

DeVante Parker breaks finger during Dolphins training camp

DeVante Parker breaks finger during Dolphins training camp

The injuries continue to mount for wide receiver DeVante Parker, who has not been able to shake the bug throughout his Miami Dolphins career. Selected in the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft, Parker has the potential to be a great wide receiver at the NFL level, but leg issues, particularly hamstring and groin problems, seem to set him back every season. He has also played with broken ribs. Add to that list now a hand problem. Parker broke his middle finger, according to the Palm Beach Post’s Joe Schad. The team and Parker are hopeful that he will be available for the season opener on...
