As if things couldn't get worse for the 1-9 Jacksonville Jaguars, one of their players got arrested for the stupidest crime recently committed by an NFL player in Miami Beach this weekend. Cornerback Dwayne Gratz was arrested early Sunday morning for showing up drunk to a South Beach convenience sto ... More >>
The University of Miami and Florida State University face off for 59th edition of college football's greatest rivalry next weekend. Oh yeah, I went there. The greatest. There are longer-running rivalries than Miami-FSU, rivalries that include schools geographically closer than Coral Cables and Talla ... More >>
The Miami Dolphins enduring popularity in England remains one of life's great mysteries. Maybe Dan Marino is one of the few NFL players they can name. Maybe they really like our colors. Maybe Ace Ventura: Pet Detective is a huge cult favorite over there. Whatever the case, the Dolphins win against ... More >>
The Miami Dolphins beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 27-13 on Sunday, but it was a pigeon that trended worldwide on Twitter. Wait, what? Yup a pigeon. A pigeon that by the end of the game had it's own Twitter account. What a world. During the second half of the game a pigeon flew his happy ass down on ... More >>
Behold above. This is Dolphins Nation. It is not very big. In the map, the shaded counties are places where the Dolphins are amongst the top three teams -- but in most of those spots out of South Florida, that share is very small. That's according to Twitter anyway. The site used its data to find ... More >>
The Miami Hurricanes will kick off their 2014-15 football season Labor Day against the Louisville Cardinals in a rematch of their 36-9 Russell Athletic Bowl loss this past December. Much has changed in just a few short months -- both teams will sport new quarterbacks and many different starters this ... More >>
Since the 1995 inaugural season of the Jacksonville Jaguars, Florida has had three NFL teams. In that time Dan Marino retired and the Dolphins mostly slunk into irrelevant mediocrity. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers captured a Super Bowl ring and had a pretty decent '00s, but are now back to playing like i ... More >>
According to Public Policy Polling (yes, the same people who do political polls), Florida's favorite NFL team is the Dolphins. The state's favorite college football team are the Florida Gators. And the state's favorite baseball team doesn't even play in Florida. Turns out the Atlanta Braves are twic ... More >>
Monty Ray Grow spent two years in the NFL with the Jacksonville Jaguars and Kansas City Chiefs, and spent his college years with the Florida Gators. He spent last night in jail. The former footballer was arrested after leaving a three-year-old girl in a car while he went into the Diamond Dolls str ... More >>
All it took was for super-agent Drew Rosenhaus to go on WQAM yesterday and say he "wouldn't be shocked" if the Dolphins signed Tim Tebow because Stephen Ross is a "fan" to start the latest Tebowmania rumor. This despite the fact the Dolphins don't particularly need another quarterback, let ... More >>
The new Miami Dolphins uniforms weren't supposed to be unveiled until Thursday, but it looks like they've hit the web a little earlier than scheduled. The only part of the new unis we'd seen till now had been a bit of white face mask.
While the Miami Dolphins are asking for millions in state money to help upgrade Sun Life Stadium, some lawmakers are focusing on sports teams that don't even exist yet.A state Senate panel today approved a bill that would grant $2 million a year in order to build new soccer stadiums to lure Major Le ...

Last week, the Dolphins managed to put their season on life support with a strong performance against a terrible Jags team. With a 6-8 record, the Dolphins have a roughly .0000000000081% chance of getting into the playoffs if certain scenarios play out. JOY!
Oh hooray! The Dolphins beat a pathetic two-win team to prolong our chances for an evenly average season. Fantastic. Ryan Tannehill played flawlessly, Reggie Bush threw down his anaconda sexual organ and the Dolphins trampled a pathetic Jaguars team 24-3. Woooooooooooo!
Ah, the Battle for Florida.Former Dolphin Chad 'The Robot' Henne vs. Ryan 'Tanny Boyeee' Tannehill! Revenge for 62-7! Vindication for the loud, smelly fart that 2012 has proven to be! A chance to avoid a fourth losing season in five years! Tough-nosed, physical ... zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
The Miami Dolphins have shown a knack all season for hanging with good teams only to vomit into their own pants when the game is on the line. It happened last week against the Patriots and it happened again yesterday against the 49ers as the Dolphins lost 27-13, despite being a field goal away from ... More >>
Yes, it totally makes sense that if Jacksonville Jaguars fans wanted their own version of the Pittsburgh Steelers' famed "Terrible Towel" they would call it the "Jag Rag." We're just not sure if the creators realized that name would induce fits of laughter in anyone who is or ever was a teenage boy.
Let's be honest, this season is not exactly hopeful for your Miami Dolphins. With a rookie quarterback and coming off a 6-10 campaign in 2011, the oddsmakers aren't exactly worried you'll hit the 200-1 sweepstakes that the Dolphins win Super Bowl XLVII. That won't stop belligerent Dolphins fans from ... More >>
So, Peyton Manning has chosen to play for the Denver Broncos, which officially ends the reign of Tebowmania in Colorado.What does that mean for the Dolphins? The sports media has already cued up the Tebow-to-Miami talks. We'd rather they hit the kill button. Nothing about that makes sense.
The Miami Dolphins have not had a consistent quarterback since Dan Marino, who retired at 38. Twelve years later, the Dolphins are still fumbling around trying to land a franchise quarterback even half as good as he was. Signing a 35-year-old injured player probably won't to help much, but don't ... More >>
Maybe its the fact that all three Florida teams suck this year. Maybe its the fact that financially strapped Floridians don't want to shell out for tickets. Whatever the case, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Jacksonville Jaguars and Miami Dolphins have all had to deal with the threat or reality of blac ... More >>
Despite the weekly disaster show on the field, the Miami Dolphins are at their highest level of popularity in years. That's according to a Harris Interactive poll that ranks the 32 NFL teams from America's most favorite to least. The Dolphins are America's 13th favorite team. Unlucky number as ... More >>
As if the Dolphins needed more problems, it appears Chad Henne's shoulder injury is pretty serious. Now multiple reports are claiming the Fins are downright desperate to bring in some new QB blood and have reached out to both David Garrard and Jake Delhomme.
Finally a political polling firm has decided to poll on something other than politics. Public Policy Polling surveyed Floridians on another contentious topic: sports. The poll shows LeBron James isn't exactly that popular in his new state, while Florida's favorite pro team is the Tampa Bay Bucc ... More >>
Perhaps less heralded than the 1972 perfect season, but more illustrative of the Miami Dolphins proud position as a historically non-sucking team is another record: most regular season wins since 1970 (that's the year the AFL and NFL merged and is generally considered the start of the modern ... More >>
The Miami Dolphins are the 21st most popular NFL team this year, or if you want to be more negative about it they're the 12th least popular. That's the lowest point the Dolphins have ever found themselves in the ratings since Harris Interactive began keeping track of such things in 1998. The good ne ... More >>
Anthony Cesario, a former player for the Miami Dolphins and Jacksonville Jaguars, has died at the young age of 34 after suffering what appears to be a heart attack. Cesario died Saturday in Saratoga Springs, Colorado, while the former offensive guard was hosting a hunting party.
The starting squad for your Miami Dolphins has not been able to catch a break with the all the rain during the first two pre-season games. Against the Buccaneers two weeks ago, a rainstorm created a quagmire in Sun Life Stadium. Last week, the foul weather followed them up to Jacksonville where a li ... More >>
Oil can! ... Oil can!Saturday night was quite a night for both football and meteorology enthusiasts. After nearly a two-hour weather delay, the Miami Dolphins went out and defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars 27-26. It's the second-straight win for the Fins, and a second-straight week where they had ... More >>
There are several things we can glean from the Dolphins 10-7 pre-season win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this past Saturday: Pat White is probably done, the Marlins infield is where football goes to die and Dolphins fans remain pretty irrational after just one meaningless game. What's that? Bran ... More >>
Grilled chicken sandwich at Sun Life...is it safe?ESPN's Outside the Lines has collected health department inspection reports for food and beverage vendors at 107 MLB, NBA, NHL, and NFL sports arenas in the United States and Canada.

Smiley had a lot of fans in the Bear community (no, not Chicago fans)Local fans of Miami Dolphins guard Justin Smiley are about to be (pun warning) frown-y. He's headed up I95 to the Jacksonville Jaguars. As for what the Dolphins are getting in return, no one seems to know yet. Do the Jags have a ... More >>
Here we go. Live-blogging the NFL Draft. Pretty much like watching the draft with someone as losery as yourself. Only on the Internet! This is the first time the NFL Draft is being held in primetime. Because you're not buying enough KFC Double Downs for your fatass kids dammit! Also, tonight is t ... More >>
That Dolphins halftime speech must have been some kind of fire and brimstone sermon. Something along the lines of Henry V's Saint Crispen's Day address. The pre-game speech, meh, not so much. It was probably more along the lines of, "Okay men, we're gonna go out there and we're gonna pull down ou ... More >>
Despite NBCMiami's sort of brilliant "Fin" headline this morning, the Dolphins playoffs hopes are still alive. Well, not really alive. Their playoff hopes are more zombie-like. It's as if the Dolphins are in a cheesy horror movie where the undead have taken over and bitten the Fins, and the team ... More >>
Just days before Christmas, the Miami Dolphins were supposed to come up with another big win to inch closer to a post-season berth. Instead, they delivered a stocking full of turds in the form of a 27-24 loss in overtime to the Tennessee Titans. There's plenty of blame to go around for their play ... More >>
No college football team hit such heights and then sunk to such lows this decade than the Miami Hurricanes. From the 2001 team that won a national championship -- and is considered by most sane sports commenters as the best college team of the past ten years if not of all time -- to the 20 ... More >>
If we had told you before this game started that the Dolphins would only manage to score 14 points in the first half, zero points in the second half, turn the ball over three times in enemy territory, but will still win the game, you would have stabbed us in the spleen with a No. 2 pencil and gon ...

Gov. Charlie Crist is a Noles fan, but it's not so surprising that he can relate to Gators quarterback Tim Tebow. UF had high hopes of repeating its national championship and was the favorite throughout the regular season. Tebow, meanwhile, was talked about as a potential Heisman double winn ... More >>
All the naysayers (me included, often) think the Dolphins' roller coaster 2008 season ought to come with a few caveats: "Yeah, yeah, but Tom Brady was out the entire season... Sure, but the Jets had that old guy... Well, the wildcat won't be as effective next year... Whatever, you had an easy schedu ... More >>
