NFL: Denver Broncos at Miami Dolphins Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

Here’s the gist of our new Phinsider series: we look at game tape as a Miami Dolphins family - and instead of just blindly accepting someone else’s conclusions, we form our own.

My apologies for missing last week’s segment. Wifey-poo was out of town and I got to live with my mother-in-law for 4 days. Yippee hooray for me!


This is the game we’ve been waiting for: a game where the Miami Dolphins had all 3 phases clicking (offense, defense, special teams). Considering the losing streak, the chance to see wholesome tape was as welcome as a cold beer on a hot day.

Context: 2nd and 7, MIA 16, 4:37 left in the 2nd, MIA up 16-3.

    Shut up, SUTTON. He would’ve scored a touchdown if it weren’t for you blocking him telepathically with your mental deficiencies.
