Dolphins season ends amid a mountain of injuries
|Dolphins end season in another wild card exit
Lose 26-7 in record cold day
The Dolphins' late season collapse ended the season in frigid Kansas City. The Dolphins lost another wild card game and are still looking for their first playoff win since December 30th 2000. With the Lions' playoff win the Dolphins now have the longest playoff win drought in the league.
The Dolphins began their slide when they could not hold their 14 point lead against the Titans a win there would have made the entire season look different but once they lost that game it was all downhill from there, losing the divisiob and playing a wildcard game on the road in one of the coldest games in NFL history.
The Dolphins now head to an off season with over 50 million over the cap and that assumes they let Wilkins go, because if they tage him they will have to clear out 70 million from that tag and that's before signing their own free agents let alone new ones - All 3 starters in the interior of the line Wynn, Williams and Hunt are FAs and so is Kendall. They can not possibly afford Baker or Howard. Van Ginkel is a FA and so is Wilkins and Elliot.
Another season full of hope ended in disappointment.

|Wait is finally over,
Zach Thomas elected into Hall of Fame
Becomes Miami's 11th Hall member
Dolphins legendary LB Zach Thomas was elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The 7 time probowl (when probowl was a real thing) and 5 TIME FIRST TEAM ALL PRO, the heart and soul of Miami's defense in the late 90s and early 2000s was elected after waiting 10 years and making the final round 4 times.
Zach was the heart of the defense playing inside LB for 12 years begining in 1996. He was drafted as an undersized 5th round LB by Jimmy Johnson and he made his mark right from day one. He was so good coach Johnson waived free agent LB Jack Del Rio and Thomas would go on to start from day one. He earned AFC defensive rookie of the year in his rookie season and led a defense that was always ranked very high. He finished his carrer with a mind blowing 1734 tackles.
So deserving to get into the Hall, Thomas finally made it, he will be enshrined in Canton as a member of the Dolphins this August.
|Dolphins hire Mike McDaniel
McDaniel becomes 14th coach in franchise history
The Miami Dolphins have hired San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Mike McDaniel as their new coach, making him the 11th full time and 14th overall coach. McDaniel had worked under 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan for the past 11 seasons and gets his first shot as a head coach after one year as offensive coordinator and 3 years as run game coordinator.
McDaniel was credited for his role in developing San Francisco's creative running game and could help the development of WR Jaylen Waddle. The Dolphins struggled offensively this season despite finishing 9-8 and that is probably why they were looking for an offensive minded coach.
The Yale-educated McDaniel got his coaching start on Mike Shanahan's staff in Denver in 2005. He worked as an assistant in Houston, Washington, Cleveland and Atlanta. McDaniel then joined Shanahan's staff in San Francisco run game coordinator and took over the offensive coordinator role in 2021.
|2012 Draft flashback - Dolphins select QB Ryan Tannehill
Becomes first QB chosen in 1st round since 1983
Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill
It's been exactly 29 years to the day since the Dolphins selected a QB in the first round. In 1983 it was hall of fame QB Dan Marino. In 2012 it was Texas A&M star Ryan Tannehill.
The Dolphins made the 6'4' Texas A&M QB the third QB taked in the 2012 draft and the first first round QB taken by the Dolphins since Marino.
Tannehill played WR in his first two years in college and then switched back to QB. He started just 19 games at the position. Having played WR (he led the team in receptions) he is very athletic and runs the 40 in 4.6. He played under now Miami offensive coordinator Mike Sherman, that familiarity by Sherman certainly helped the Dolphins in the vetting process. Most so called experts think that Tannehill needs time
to develop and even if that's the case the Dolphins have other options for this year.

|MARINO ENSHRINED IN HALL OF FAME
Throws last pass to Clayton
Above, Dan Marino's bust in Pro Football's Hall of fame.
At the bottom, Marino receives his hall of fame gold jacket
Dolphins' legendary quarterback and the most prolific passer in NFL history, Dan Marino, is now a hall of fame quarterback. Marino, considered by many the greatest quarterback ever, has been elected to pro football's shrine in his first year of elegibility. Marino is the owner of more than 20 NFL passing records including most TDs (420), most passing yards (61,361), most completions (4,967), most attempts (8,358), most games 300 yards passing (63), most games 400 yards passing (13), most games with 4 or more TDs (21) and most yards in a season (5,084). There are 229 members in the hall of fame, less than a quarter of them were elected in their first year of elegibility.
49ers coach and hall of famer, Bill Walsh, who coached both Steve Young and Joe Montana, said "we will never see anyone like him again".
Marino was (and still is) the only rookie ever elected to the probowl. He was elected the starter... It was the first of his 9 pro bowl selections. His second year was the best season by a quarterback ever and perhaps
the best year by any player ever, throwing for 362 completions on 564 attempts for 5,084 yards and 48 TDs. All of them were NFL records. The yardage mark is still a record. The TDs record was broken in 2004 after the rule changes made passing easier. Before 2004 the only player that ever came close to the TD record was Dan himself when he threw 44 in 1986.
Thousands of Dolphins fans made the pilgrimage to Canton, Ohio. To a long standing ovation Marino was introduced by his son Danno. The presentation speech by Dan's son was one of the most memorables and emotional presenting speeches in years as he talked about his Dad's private life and his relationship with the Florida community. He mentioned Dan Marino's children's hospital founded by Marino and the Dan Marino foundation.
Marino had a memorable and emotional speech. Marino thanked his fellow players and coaches through the years, his high school and college coaches. He called Don Shula the best coach ever. He thanked the Marks Brothers - Mark Clayton and Mark Duper and center Dwight Stephenson. He said the thing he misses the most is going out of the tunnel as the starting QB of the Miami Dolphins. After thanking his family, he wanted to do one thing one last time. Marino completed 538 balls to Mark Clayton and he wanted to do it one more time. Marino licked his fingers as he did for 17 seasons in Miami, his son gave him a football as Mark Clayton went deep one last time Marino finished his speech with a perfect deep spiral caught by Clayton for the last time.
The story of the best quarterback ever is now complete - Dan Marino, Hall of Fame Quarterback.
|Dan Marino Retirement speech and the Marino section
"After 17 years I would like to announce my retirement from the Miami Dolphins. After playing the game of football most of my life, this was an extremely
difficult decision. But I know that I had made the right decision for me and my family. I am very proud of the success that we have had as a team for 17 years, as well
as all my individual accomplishments. Not many people have an opportunity to spend 17 years of their life doing what they truly love to do. And as I stand here before you today, I can say that I had
been blessed with a career greater than I could have ever imagined..."
