Growing up a Dolphin Fan

Guest Columnist Stu Pace offers his thoughts as a life long Fin fan!

I was born in 1961. At the ripe old age of 7 I became a Miami Dolphins fan. In New Jersey. I became a fan because at the time, my favorite television show was Flipper. Why? I don’t know, I just always liked the actual mammal. My Dad must have had a game on one Sunday afternoon (though I am sure he was asleep-he always was startled when the channel changed by one of the three kids) and I was passing through the living room when I noticed that Flipper, yes, my Flipper was on TV. In an end zone. At a football game. Retrieving field goals and extra points. I sat down. It was 1968. I was sold.

Now, back then the merchandise for the NFL was, at best, nonexistent. You would see a kid on the block with a Giants or Jets, or maybe a Steelers shirt walking around. But a Miami Dolphin shirt? Nowhere to be seen. Thankfully, my grandparents lived in Florida (Dad was from New S Continue reading

OT Bryant McKinnie to move to right side?

mckinnie 300x225 OT Bryant McKinnie to move to right side?

Should the Fins bring back McKinnie to play RT?

In a radio interview on WQAM, OT Bryant McKinnie stated that he would be willing to move to the right tackle position if he came back to Miami.

Bryant, who will turn 35 in May, has never played right tackle. (But he believes he could make the transition.) This year’s NFL draft has some quality depth at right tackle position also.

But Bryant played decent last year for Miami, helping to stabilize an offensive line that was in disarry. By bringing him back as a one year stop gap, it allows the Dolphins to use their 6 NFL draft picks in other areas.

Plus, McKinnie would be the backup to LT Albert should Albert get hurt. Thoughts? Good idea to bring him back? Join us on our message board and share your thoughts on this at FinNation Forums

Cortland Finnegan….Buyer Beware

finnegan 300x199 Cortland Finnegan....Buyer Beware

CB Cortland Finnegan signed a 2 year deal with Miami

When Miami released Dimitri Patterson and let Nolan Carroll move on to the Eagles, I had wondered if that meant that the Fins were going to allow Jamar Taylor or Will Davis step up into the #2 spot opposite Brent Grimes.

Taylor, a 2nd round pick, was a playmaker in college. But he battled a hernia problem for much of last season. Davis flashed big play potential in training camp last year. But the coaching staff felt he needed to develop more, so he was limited to playing in just 5 games. (Mainly due to injury.)

When the Dolphins brought CB Cortland Finnegan in for a visit, I realized that the coaching staff wanted another veteran back there. It makes sense. With Grimes locking down one side, you know opposing QBs are going to test the other CB.

But when I read that Miami signed Finnegan to a 2 year deal worth $11 million, I have to say I was not thrilled like so many other Fin fans. I didn’t have v Continue reading

CB Michael Thomas AFC Defensive player of week

CB Michael Thomas seals the Fins win over the Patriots

Michael Thomas, plucked off of the San Francisco 49ers practice squad last week, capped off a wonderful week by winning the AFC Defensive Player of the Week award. The Miami Dolphins cornerback registered two tackles, two passes defensed and the game winning interception in Miami’s 24-20 victory over the New England Patriots.

Thomas was thrust into the starting line up after injuries to both Nolan Carroll and Brent Grimes. Both Grimes and Carroll are expected to play in this weekend’s matchup against the Buffalo Bills.
