Dolphins sign on for 'Hard Knocks'

PHILBIN.jpg
It was surprising to hear the next installment of HBO's popular "Hard Knocks" series would involve the Miami Dolphins, a franchise that for the last 5+ years has been shrouded in the sort of secrecy typically reserved for government agencies.

Yet, Miami will become the seventh franchise to be featured on the show, with the premiere scheduled to air August 7.

Moore named team MVP

Quarterback Matt Moore, who may be supplanted by first-round pick Ryan Tannehill by the end of this season, was named the Dolphins' Most Valuable Player Friday, after leading the team to a 6-6 record while throwing 16 TD passes against just nine interceptions.

This falls in the category of someone had to win the award, which was voted on by Dolphins players. It could have gone to Reggie Bush, who had a career year with his first 1,000-yard season. But really, was there another candidate?

Seau's death a tragedy

SEAU.jpg
The news came like a shockwave to all football fans. Junior Seau, the seemingly indestructible All-Pro linebacker who dominated the NFL in the 1990s, was dead, by an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Any time someone loses their life at the young age of 43, it is a tragedy. But even worse is the fact that Seau himself chose to die, leaving behind an ex-wife and three children, and a life of luxury after making millions of dollars in the NFL.

Analyzing the Dolphins draft

LAMAR.jpg
The Dolphins' draft did not fill the many holes in the roster, and its success will largely depend on whether or not first pick Ryan Tannehill develops into a franchise quarterback.

It was largely a fan-pleasing draft, which is certainly what owner Stephen Ross wanted after an offseason of protests and criticism of general manager Jeff Ireland. The question is, did Ireland draft players just to appease the fan base, or did he legitimately think these were the best players available at the time?

Dolphins take Tannehill

It was a wild first round of the NFL Draft Thursday night, as teams traded with reckless abandon, and surprising players were taken well before they were expected to.

But the Dolphins were not one of those teams who threw a monkey wrench in the proceedings.

Watershed draft for Ireland

We're less than three days away from what is undoubtedly not just the biggest Dolphins draft in some time, but certainly the biggest one for general manager Jeff Ireland.

This is his chance to once and for all escape the large shadow cast by mentor Bill Parcells, and strike a bold move that negates his reputation as a conservative personnel man.

Quarterback search continues

TANNEHILL.jpg
The Dolphins may have lost out on Peyton Manning and Matt Flynn, but general manager Jeff Ireland insists the team is still looking for a quarterback, despite signing 34-year-old David Garrard last week to compete with incumbent Matt Moore.

More and more mock drafts have the Dolphins taking Ryan Tannehill (pictured), the Texas A&M quarterback who played for current Dolphins offensive coordinator Mike Sherman last year.

Ireland needs to go

IRELAND.bmpAfter being spurned by both Peyton Manning and Matt Flynn, the Dolphins signed David Garrard to a one-year contract, the same Garrard who memorably said no to Miami when the Dolphins tried to sign him after Chad Henne went down last year.

This is getting to be a broken record, as in recent years the Dolphins have continually lost out on top players and coaches, and had to settle for mediocre substitutes.
