The Splash Zone 11/29/16: Adam Gase Creating A Winning Culture In Miami

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.

It's a good day to be a Dolphins fan. The Dolphins have one six straight, are playing like a playoff team, and their first year head coach is doing some great things.

Dolphins Quarterbacks

Ryan Tannehill proving he can succeed when times are tough
Plenty of quarterbacks can play when everything around them is perfect.

Tannehill Up To The Challenge

In fact, Sunday’s 31-24 win over the San Francisco 49ers may have had as much to do with the Dolphins’ 1-10 opponent as it did with how well the line blocked, especially in the run game. And while that may be true, just don’t look for apologies from the 300-pound men in the trenches who push, shove and otherwise move similarly huge and powerful human beings for a living.

Dolphins Tight Ends
