Nick Foles decides its time to move on from the Eagles. Where does he go?

Always a bridesmaid, never the bride.

Even after being named MVP of a Super Bowl LII, even after saving the Eagles 2018 season and taking them to the playoffs, Philadelphia continued to tell quarterback Nick Foles he just wasn’t good enough. QB Carson Wentz, who has been injured the last two seasons, will be their starter. Foles decided that it was time to move on, and he paid $2 million to do it.

The Eagles had picked up Foles $20 million option, but that would mean he would continue to carry a clipboard for Wentz. Foles paid the fee to be released from that option, but Philadelphia still has the ability to franchise tag him. This would give the team the ability to trade him. It has been reported that multiple teams are interested in bringing Foles on board. This isn’t surprising considering the state of the quarterback situation in the NFL.

Now that the Super Bowl is over, the last two open head coaching positions in the NFL have been filled.

The Cincinnati Bengals announced that Zac Taylor will be their new head coach. Taylor was the quarterbacks coach for the Los Angeles Rams.

The Miami Dolphins announced that Brian Flores will be their new head coach. Flores was the linebackers coach and defensive play caller for the New England Patriots.

It would appear that the Bengals will be focusing on offense this season, while the Dolphins are looking for defensive strength to help them finally top the Patriots in the AFC East.

Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross has seen enough.

After flying to Buffalo to watch the Dolphins wrap up their 2018 regular season, which they dropped to the Buffalo Bills 42-17, the owner flew into Miami and met with Coach Gase Monday morning to deliver the news.

On a day known around the league as Black Monday, where several head coaches lose their jobs, Gase was the 12th head coach in Dolphins history. He leaves with a record of 23-25, with one playoff appearance back in 2016.

Dolphins pull off “Boise” for the win against Patriots

Dolphins 34 – Patriots 33

Let me first start out by saying…”Alright Miami!” because that was my very first thought after watching the Dolphins pull off a miracle last play to win the game. I could hear good ole Jim “Mad Dog” Mandich’s voice in my head.

A fitting end to a very typical AFC East match-up. A game that saw nine lead changes, which now stands as the second most in an NFL game.

Don’t think many fans would have expected that outcome when it comes to a shoot-out with future Hall of Fame quarterback Tom Brady.

Perfect timing for a Dolphins bye week

Packers 31 – Dolphins 12

The Dolphins bye week couldn’t come at a better time.

Facing the Green Bay Packers in week 10 would prove to be a tall task, regardless of injuries. After seeing the Dolphins inactive list before the game, most gave the Dolphins an almost no chance of winning.

However, Dolphins head coach Adam Gase found some holes and was able to run the ball.  Dolphins drove the length of the field only to abandon the run on a short field inside the 20. Gase chose to go shotgun with an empty backfield.

A bad snap hit QB Brock Osweiler’s hands and sailed right behind him, only to be recovered by the Packers, who then marched right down the field and scored. Pretty much the way the whole game went.

A mystery surrounds Dolphins win against the Jets

Dolphins 13 – Jets 6

There is no way I could start this article in any way other than this: I have no idea why All-Pro safety Reshad Jones removed himself from the game.

I watched him closely during the game and he looked like he had a slight limp. I never got confirmation he was injured in any way, leaving a cloud of mystery to why he wasn’t out on the field.

We even saw defensive end Cameron Wake talk to him for about 10 minutes. When Cam was questioned about that conversation, his response was “That is between him and I”.

Was the Dolphins-Bears game officiating one-sided?

Wanda Wiedman, Chicago Bears Reporter

By Wanda Wiedman // @WandaW63

Since I am neither a player nor a season ticket holder, I am calling out the NFL Officiating team.

What appears to be a one-sided officiating crew down in Miami must be stated, reviewed and reprimanded for the preposterous penalties against the Bears and all the missed penalties against the Dolphins.

Let’s review a few, in case you have no idea what you “may” have missed.
