The Miami Dolphins GM Dennis Hickey and the majority of these NFL GM’s and teams are hypocrites. They all tell America that they want what’s best for Michael Sam, the first openly gay player to be drafted into the NFL. Read the rest of this entry »
Well here we are once again. The NBA playoffs are upon us this weekend as your Miami Heat go after not one, not two, but yes “Not” three championships in a row. Read the rest of this entry »
Finally we are seeing heads roll in the Miami Dolphins bullying scandal following the release of the Wells report. Offensive line coach Jim Turner, yes he of the blow up doll purchases, gone. Longtime athletic trainer Kevin O Neill whom we understand refused to co operate with the Wells report. Gone. Read the rest of this entry »
Late Sunday, the rumors and stories about Hurricanes Head coach Al Golden’s future at Miami were put to rest with a statement from the Athletic department and Golden confirming that he will remain on as coach. It ended a few days of speculation as to whether the former player and coach at Penn State would go after his dream job and help steer them back to prominence in the midst of the NCAA sanctions.
As Twitter exploded with sources and false reports,
Despite the embarrassing 19-0 loss by the Miami Dolphins this past Sunday in Buffalo, the Fins would be in the playoffs if the season ended today. However with one more week to go in this wacky NFL season we will attempt to explain the playoffs scenarios to you.
With the Chiefs losing at home to the Colts, the Broncos’ win clinched the AFC West and a first-round bye. New England still could jump Denver for No. 1 overall — the Patriots beat the Broncos head-to-head — but Denver cannot fall behind the second seed.
Both Cincinnati and Indianapolis stayed in the hunt for a first-round bye, too, though it will take a New England loss in Week 17 for either to have a shot at the top two. The Bengals host the Ravens next week, with a chance to possibly knock the Ravens from the playoffs.
Because they hold the conference-record tiebreaker over the Ravens, the Dolphins currently sit in the No. 6 spot, even though Baltimore beat Miami head-to-head. Earlier, Miami’s loss clinched the AFC East for the Patriots. Baltimore lost control of its destiny over a playoff spot (as well as any chance at the AFC North crown) by virtue of its loss to the Patriots.
The Chargers and Steelers, remained alive in the wild-card race thanks to the losses by Miami and Baltimore, plus the win by the Jets (tiebreakers come into play with New York). Both of those teams, now at 8-7, are still in the hunt heading to the season’s final week.
Meanwhile in the NFC by rallying to stun the Saints late, the Panthers clinched a playoff spot and claimed the NFC South lead. Carolina would clinch the division with a win or a Saints loss in Week 17. It’s also a win (or New Orleans loss) away from clinching a first-round bye in the playoffs.
The Saints remain likely to secure a playoff spot, but they have not clinched one as of yet.
And the Cowboys’ victory means that the NFC East race will be decided in Week 17, even though Philadelphia won in convincing fashion on Sunday night. Even with that result, the Cowboys can steal the division with a Week 17 win over the Eagles. Should Philadelphia win, it would be the No. 3 seed; Dallas would settle at No. 4 if Chicago wins the North and No. 3 if it’s Green Bay.
The Bears had a chance to clinch the division this week — Detroit was eliminated from playoff contention on a loss to the Giants, while Green Bay fell to Pittsburgh. However, they were unable to take advantage of that opportunity, meaning Week 17′s Chicago-Green Bay game at Soldier Field will decide the division. The Bears would be the champs with a win or tie; the Packers need a victory to jump into first place.
The Cardinals’ huge win in Seattle is important for a number of reasons: San Francisco’s still alive in the NFC West race; Carolina’s still alive for the No. 1 seed in the NFC; and Arizona itself now has a chance in Week 17 to claim a wild-card spot. (The Cardinals do still need some help there.) Get ready for a frantic finish in week 17 of this NFL season, should be lots of fun.
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 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 ?
