After two days of free agency in the National Football League, some teams are starting to separate themselves as doing very well this offseason while others are struggling through what’s been called salary cap hell.
The media gets plenty of mugshots sent to them by law enforcement. But sometimes, one comes along that just captures the attention of the entire newsroom because it’s that bad. Unfortunately for Desmond Bryant, the mugshot taken of him on Sunday was that bad.
With the National Football League’s regular season wrapped up, Black Monday in the NFL arrived just after midnight Monday.
After running for a career high 26 times for 172 yards and 2 touchdowns, Miami Dolphins running back Reggie Bush has been named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week.
For the first time in both of their careers, Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill and head coach Joe Philbin picked up an NFL victory Sunday. The victory marked a return to the running game the Fins had avoided and a solid defensive effort against the Oakland Raiders.
Reggie Bush happily hurled the ball into the stands as he skipped across the end zone grass, then matched the crowd’s cheers with a scream of his own.
Daniel Thomas and Tony McDaniel will not see action in Miami’s home opener against Oakland as injuries start to spread.
The Miami Dolphins are looking to rebound after losing in Week 1 to a good Houston Texans by trying to knock off the Oakland Raiders. The Dolphins will be playing for the first time in front of a home crowd, which will be the home debut of rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill.
Perhaps Ryan Tannehill will fare better at home. Last Sunday, in his debut as the starting quarterback for the Dolphins, he faltered on the road, passing for 219 yards with three interceptions and no touchdowns.
After disastrous season openers, the Oakland Raiders and Miami Dolphins came away echoing the same sentiment: We’ve got to do a better job.
