Dolphins 2014-2015 Outlook
The addition of Knowshon Moreno to a backfield that already includes Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas is a major upgrade for the Miami Dolphins, but the offensive line woes could negate the offseason changes.
Miami’s biggest upgrade was at cornerback with Cortland Finnegan. His hard-nosed style will make him a leader on the defense and give the team the edge and intensity it needs.
All Miami Dolphins football games can be seen on one of the following television broadcasts depending on the team they are playing: Fox Sports or CBS for Sunday afternoon games; NBC for Sunday Night games; ESPN for Monday Night Football games and the NFL Network for Thursday night games. The Dolphins organization also created its own regional TV network - The Dolphins Television Network" - in August 2010.

The Miami Dolphins are a professional football team in the National Football League (the NFL). The Miami Dolphins play in the American Football Conference (AFC) East Division with three other teams: the New England Patriots, the New York Jets and the Buffalo Bills. The Miami Dolphins have won 2 Super Bowl Championships. Dolphin Stadium, located in Miami Gardens, Florida, hosts all Miami Dolphins home games.
In 1965, the AFL awarded an expansion professional football franchise to Joseph Robbie, a Miami-area lawyer. Ownership conducted a contest to come up with the team name for the Miami Franchise. After the submission of 19,843 proposed name entries, a 7-member committee eventually settled on the name “Dolphins”. The Miami Dolphins began play in 1966 and did not have a winning record in any of its first 4 seasons. Ownership decided that a change at the top needed to occur, so the team replaced Head Coach George Wilson with the highly touted Don Shula. Don Shula played for 2 legendary head coaches, Paul Brown and Weeb Ewbank, and he was the Head Coach of the Baltimore Colts for 8 years before he took hold of the reins for the Miami Dolphins. Immediately, the Miami Dolphins began to see the positive affects that a head coach like Don Shula could bring to a franchise. In Shula’s first season as Head Coach, the Miami Dolphins finished in 2nd place in the AFC East with a 10-4 record, but lost to the Oakland Raiders 21-14 in the Divisional round of the playoffs. This would start a streak of 5 consecutive seasons in which the Miami Dolphins would advance to post-season play. The following season, the Miami Dolphins finished atop the AFC East for the 1st time in franchise history with a 10-3 record. In one of the most exciting playoff games in NFL history, the Miami Dolphins defeated the Kansas City Chiefs 27-24 in double overtime in the Divisional round of the playoffs. In the AFC Championship Game, the Miami Dolphins crushed the Baltimore Colts 21-0 to advance to the franchise’s first Super Bowl appearance. Although the Dallas Cowboys convincingly outplayed the Miami Dolphins in Super Bowl VI in a 24-3 victory, the Miami Dolphins got a little taste of Super Bowl glory and were ready to take it to the next level the next year. In Shula’s 3rd year as head coach, the Miami Dolphins did the unthinkable – the Miami Dolphins became the first and only team in NFL history to go undefeated both during the regular season and in the playoffs. The Miami Dolphins survived 2 close playoff contests (a 20-14 victory over the Cleveland Browns in the Divisional round of the playoffs and a 21-17 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC Championship Game) to advance to their 2nd consecutive Super Bowl appearance. And on January 14, 1973, the Miami Dolphins completed the perfect 17-0 undefeated season with a 14-7 victory over the Washington Redskins in Super Bowl VII. In the game, the Miami Dolphins “no-name” defense dominated the Washington Redskins offensive unit all game long, only allowing the Washington Redskins to cross midfield twice throughout the entire contest. Miami Dolphins Safety Jake Scott became only the 2nd defensive player in Super Bowl history to be named the Super Bowl MVP with his 2 interception effort that helped seal the victory. Although the Miami Dolphins lost 2 games the following year, the team still finished atop the AFC East with a 12-2 record. That season, the Miami Dolphins cruised in the playoffs with a 34-16 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals in the Divisional round of the playoffs and a 27-10 victory over the Oakland Raiders in the AFC Championship Game. And on January 13, 1974, the Miami Dolphins repeated as Super Champions with a 24-7 victory over the Minnesota Vikings in Super Bowl VIII. The Miami Dolphins scored the first 24 points of Super Bowl VIII and cruised to an easy victory. Running Back Larry Csonka was named the Super Bowl MVP by rushing for 145 yards and 2 touchdowns. The Miami Dolphins won their 2nd consecutive Super Bowl and became the first team to advance to 3 consecutive Super Bowls. During Don Shula’s 26 years as head coach of the Miami Dolphins, he only suffered 2 losing seasons. The Miami Dolphins finished atop the AFC East 11 different times and advanced to the playoffs an amazing 16 times during those 26 years. Although the Miami Dolphins were always competitive under Don Shula, the team never recorded another Super Bowl Championship, losing two Super Bowl contests in 1982 and 1984.
In the 1980’s, Head Coach Don Shula was largely responsible for the development of one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history, Dan Marino. Fresh out of the Pittsburgh University, Don Shula thrust Quarterback Dan Marino into action in the 3rd game of the 1983 season, and he never looked back. That year the Miami Dolphins finished with a 12-4 record and he won both the AFC passing title and the NFL Rookie of the Year award. The Miami Dolphins also finished atop the AFC East that season, but the Seattle Seahawks pulled off the upset 27-20 victory in the Divisional round of the playoffs, dashing the Miami Dolphins hopes of returning to the Super Bowl for a 2nd consecutive season (in the 1982 season, the Miami Dolphins lost to the Washington Redskins 27-17 in Super Bowl XVII). The next year, Dan Marino did not miss a beat as he passed for single season records for passing yards, touchdown passes and completions. Dan Marino was voted the NFL MVP and he led the team to a 14-2 regular season record and another AFC East title. That year, the Miami Dolphins crushed the Seattle Seahawks 31-10 in the Divisional round of the playoffs. The next week, the Miami Dolphins dominated the Pittsburgh Steelers 45-28 in the AFC Championship Game. In the game, Quarterback Dan Marino passed for over 400 yards and 4 touchdowns, enabling the Miami Dolphins to advance to the franchise’s 5th Super Bowl appearance. Super Bowl XIX featured 2 of the NFL’s greatest Quarterbacks of all time, the Miami Dolphins Dan Marino and the San Francisco 49ers Joe Montana. Unfortunately for the Miami Dolphins, Joe Montana and the San Francisco 49ers got the better of the Miami Dolphins during the lopsided 38-16 loss. Joe Montana was named the Super Bowl MVP by passing for 331 yards and 3 touchdowns and rushing for another 59 yards and 1 touchdown. That would be Dan Marino’s only Super Bowl appearance. From 1985 through 1995, during Head Coach Don Shula’s last 11 years as Head Coach of the Miami Dolphins, the Miami Dolphins won 3 more AFC East titles and advanced to the playoffs 5 more times. The Miami Dolphins fell one game short of that elusive 6th Super Bowl appearance twice in 1985 and 1992. In 1985, the Miami Dolphins ran into one of the hottest teams in NFL playoffs history, the New England Patriots, in the AFC Championship Game. The New England Patriots forced 6 Miami Dolphins turnovers and cruised to an easy 31-14 victory in the Orange Bowl. That post-season, the New England Patriots won three consecutive road playoff games to advance to Super Bowl XX against the Chicago Bears, which the New England Patriots ultimately lost 46-10. In 1992, the Miami Dolphins hosted the Buffalo Bills in the AFC Championship Game at Joe Robbie Stadium. The Buffalo Bills forced the Miami Dolphins into 5 costly turnovers and cruised to an easy 29-10 victory over the Miami Dolphins. That would be the last time the Miami Dolphins played in an AFC Championship Game.
Following Head Coach Don Shula’s resignation following the 1995 season, the Miami Dolphins failed to make the playoffs in 1996 when the team finished with an 8-8 record. New Head Coaches Jimmy Johnson and Dave Wannstedt led the Miami Dolphins to 5 consecutive playoff appearances from 1997 through 2001, but the Miami Dolphins could never advance further than the Divisional round of the playoffs. A humiliating 20-3 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in the Wild Card round of the playoffs was the Miami Dolphins last playoff appearance to date. And although the Miami Dolphins recorded winning seasons 3 out of 4 years from 2002 through 2005, the Miami Dolphins never qualified for post-season play. During the 2006-7 NFL season, the Miami Dolphins finished with a 6-10 and did not qualify for post-season play. Things hit an all-time low during the 2007-8 NFL season when the Miami Dolphins won only 1 game - the lowest win total for any Miami Dolphins team during the franchise's storied history. Following the atrocious season, Dolphins management hired long-time NFL head coach Bill Parcells as the head of football operations. Parcells immediately cleaned house by replacing General Manager Randy Mueller with Jeff Ireland and Head Coach Cam Cameron with Tony Sparano. The Dolphins also released two long-time Dolphin pro-bowlers - Linebacker Zach Thomas was released and Defensive End Jason Taylor was traded to the Washington Redskins. While Parcells' presence won't immediately make the Dolphins a better team, his experience and tough attitude should eventually bring better times to the weary Dolphins franchise and its loyal fan base.
Hall of Famers
Despite its short 41 year existence, the Miami Dolphins have an unbelievable 9 players who have been inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. In addition to Head Coach Don Shula being inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame in 1997 and Quarterback Dan Marino being inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame in 2005, six other offensive players for the Miami Dolphins have been inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame. The leader of the 1972 and 1973 Super Bowl Champion Miami Dolphins, Quarterback Bob Griese, was inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame in 1990. Bob Griese’s son Brian Griese played Quarterback for the University of Michigan and is currently the back-up quarterback on the Chicago Bears. Bob Griese is still involved in football as he announces college football games for the ABC television network. Another member of the 1972 unbeaten Miami Dolphins, Running Back Larry Csonka, was inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame in 1987. Larry Csonka was a strong, powerful Running Back, and together with fellow Running Back Jim Kiick, the Miami Dolphins led the NFL in rushing for 2 consecutive years in 1972 and 1973. Because of their dominance, football critics and fans alike referred to Csonka and Kiick as “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid”. Three other members of the offense on the legendary 1972 and 1973 Miami Dolphins were also inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame: Wide Receiver Paul Warfield (1983), Center Jim Langer (1987) and Guard Larry Little (1990). Center Dwight Stephenson played his entire 8-year career with the Miami Dolphins and was inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame in 1998. The sole defensive Hall of Famer for the Miami Dolphins was Linebacker Nick Buoniconti, yet another member of the unforgettable unbeaten 1972 Miami Dolphins team.
