As if he needed more, Chris Foerster has IRS problems

The Dolphins have enough to deal with this year, such that an assistant coach resigning after video emerged of him snorting drugs with a $20 bill in a video message to a Nevada “model” isn’t the biggest hardship they’ve had to endure. That being said, resigning after video emerged of him snorting drugs with a $20 [more]

The Dolphins have played four games this season, which means they’ve crammed a lot of storylines into a relatively short period of time.

Their opener was postponed due to a hurricane, [more]

Adam Gase struggles to describe Chris Foerster situation

The Dolphins have already lost their home opener to a hurricane, their quarterback for the season, replaced him with a retired television analyst, and and had a free agent walk out in the middle of a road trip.

De Smith: No player is disrespecting our country or flag

Dolphins can’t really move the ball, but win anyway

The Dolphins didn’t have to do much with the ball. Which is a good thing, since they weren’t able to. The Dolphins got a 16-10 win over the Titans in its hurricane-delayed home opener, but it was far from easy, even though they were playing against Titans backup quarterback Matt Cassel. The Dolphins managed just [more]

Dolphins lead Titans, but neither team can play offense

The Titans and Dolphins avoided Colin Kaepernick, ostensibly because other quarterbacks fit their offenses better. It’s a good thing these guys are so knowledgeable.

Matt Cassel, playing [more]

Dolphins out to what could be a decisive lead on Titans
