The Miami Dolphins are in the midst of a playoff chase at 5-5. This despite all of the chaos surrounding the NFL investigation into the Johnathan Martin-Richie Ingcognito drama. Take a look as Jeff Fox visited Camp today and filed this report.
The Sports Brothers Jeff Fox goes off on The U for losing to Duke 48-30 and possibly blowing a shot at an ACC Coastal Division Crown. Take a listen ……
Pretty cool video for the NBA on Christmas day.
The purpose of the video is the show off the Christmas Day jerseys that teams will be wearing.
The Sports Brothers visited Miami Heat practice on Monday as the team prepared to face the Milwaukee Bucks Tuesday night at the American Airlines Arena. Follow along as we speak with the guys about the teams approach to the rest of the season and an overall commitment to defense.
Reality slapped the Miami Hurricanes in the face this past Saturday and during that process, the Virginia Tech Hokies did some slapping of their own. The end result was a 42-24 dismantling of the Hurricanes in a game that was not as close as the final score indicated. The Canes were dominated in their own stadium in a game they absolutely had to have. As much as it pains me to say this the Miami Hurricanes were exposed as a fraud. Sadly they are not the top ten team that we all thought they were. A victory would have kept ACC Coastal division championship hopes alive and a possible second shot at Florida State. That possibility remains but its a long shot at best now.
So bad was this loss that it made an opportunity at a major BCS bowl game seem less likely and an invitation to some irrelevant dot com bowl more probable.
Yes Canes fans we were fooled, hoodwinked, led astray. The Canes are not back , and do not yet belong among college footballs elite. They are on the right path but we all were apparently getting just a little ahead of ourselves believing that the 11th-ranked Hurricanes (once as high as No. 7) were ready for the big time. So eager we are to return to national prominence that it all blew up in our faces again. One day we will be back, that day has not yet come.
Maybe the Canes were ranked too high which increased our expectations to an unrealistic level.
The Canes defense which we all said was much improved reverted back to the inept crew we saw last season, allowing 549 total yards and making Virginia Tech quarterback Logan Thomas look like Joe Montana. It was a nightmare we would all like to forget, no wonder they wore black uniforms (technically anthracite grey). Miami, Virginia Tech (7-3, 4-2), Georgia Tech (6-3, 5-2) and the Canes’ next opponent Duke (7-2, 3-2) all have two losses in the Coastal Division, making the Hurricanes’ final three games must-wins for them to have a remote chance at sniffing the Coastal and advancing to the ACC Championship Game to be FSU’s sacrificial lamb.
At this point even if the Canes win out, they would need Virginia Tech to lose at least one of its remaining games against Maryland (5-4, 1-4) and Virginia (2-8, 0-6). Do you believe in miracles ?
What should be a colorful and patriotic Monday night game celebrating the nation’s veterans active and retired, instead will be a game of 2 franchises who at the current time are an embarrassment to the NFL.
Both Tampa Bay and Miami have had their issues this season, and will look to put them aside at least for 60 minutes and try to have a decent contest.
On one side there is the Buccaneers, who come into the game winless, with a literally infected locker room, and a coach who has “Napolenonic” ways and can’t exactly be trusted and who may be on his way out.
While the owners of the Bucs don’t want to fire Schiano (just yet), with each loss one can only assume that the end is near. Conflicts with players can lead to an unhealthy locker room. Or shall I say an unhealthier locker room, since the Bucs have been dealing with this MRSA problem for a few months now.
Fans in Tampa are not happy with the job Schiano is doing, and neither are some of his players. I don’t believe a win or two will save him in the long run.
On the other side there is the Dolphins. After starting the season 3-0 and looking promising, they have since went 1-4 and have been thrown into the national spotlight by second year player Jonathan Martin who left the team, quite frankly because his team mates on the offensive line were just that…offensive!
The “Mart-Incognito” saga, as it’s called on social media, has brought a new look into the NFL’s rookie hazing practices and the nationwide problem of bullying. Voicemails, text messages, GM’s who encouraged players punch one another and stories of physical confrontations all spun through the media this past week.
Richie Incognito put the icing on the cake when he sat down for a 5 minute interview with Jay Glazer on Fox NFL Countdown. His statements somewhat give us a better look into the situation with Martin and him, although it doesn’t clear up the things totally.
All we do know is that on Monday Night Football there will be a lot of attention focused on the negative publicity these two teams have endured this season. But even among the staph infections and the bullying, two positive things will happen, one during the game and one after.
Hall of Famer Warren Sapp will have his number retired and one team will leave the field with a “w”.
Who do you think needs the win more?
Fox Sports Jay Glazer got the scoop. A sit down interview with embattled Miami Dolphin Offensive lineman Richie Incognito.
Clearly the interview is longer than the time shown. However Jay (or the producers edit job) didn’t do a lot of follow up questioning to some things Richie spoke about.
We’ll have a column on that later, but for now here’s the interview.
