Brian Flores once again says Tua Tagovailoa “is our quarterback”

Another wave of Deshaun Watson reports, another press conference, another opportunity for Dolphins coach Brian Flores to make an obvious statement carefully confined to the present tense.

If Deshaun Watson is traded, NFL will have to decide whether to put him on paid leave

As if the NFL wasn’t already dealing with a thorny problem that won’t go away regarding the WFT emails (plenty of media outlets are helping the cause by looking the other way, frankly), the league may soon have another pot boiling over on the front burner of the P.R. stove.

Lamar Jackson has most wins of any quarterback before 25th birthday

Many will argue that wins aren’t a quarterback stat.

This week, the league pointed out this significant statistical development: Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson has now won 35 games. That’s more [more]

Dolphins slump to fifth straight loss, face next game with no post-London bye

In hindsight, it may have been very wise for the Dolphins to not request the traditional post-London bye following their game against the Jaguars.

Jaguars snap losing streak with win over Dolphins in London

Two of the worst teams in the NFL played an ugly game in London today. In the end, the Jaguars came out on top.
