About Miami Dolphins
History of Miami Dolphins
As you walk through the streets of South Beach, you will undoubtedly see NFL jerseys emblazoned with the Dolphins logo as fans show their pride in their team. From Don Shula to Dan Marino, the team has rich history that this year's roster will look to build on. That history began in 1966 when the Miami Dolphins joined the American Football League (AFL) as an expansion team. Like many expansion teams do, the Dolphins did not see much success in their first few years on the field. In 1970, as the AFL and NFL officially merged into one league, the Dolphins hired legendary head coach Don Shula to lead the fledgling team. His hiring immediately paid off. The team went to the Super Bowl three consecutive years from 1971 to 1973, winning two of them. Following those championship years, the team fell back to mediocrity, making the postseason just four times in eight seasons without winning a single playoff game in that span. After making it back to the Super Bowl in 1982, the team used their first round selection to take quarterback Dan Marino. After stumbling out the gate in 1983, Marino took over as the starting quarterback, a position he would keep for nearly the next two decades. Marino's best season came in 1984, when he threw a then-record 48 touchdown passes and a then-record 5,078 yards. He led to Dolphins once again to the Super Bowl where they sadly lost to the San Francisco 49ers. This was the last time the franchise made it to the NFL's biggest stage.
2018 Miami Dolphins Season
The Miami Dolphins finished the 2017 regular season with a 6-10 record. This placed them in third in the AFC East and subsequently did not make the playoffs. The Dolphins are looking to improve in the 2018 season with returning players, new signees, and rookies from the NFL Draft. New additions to the roster will include wide receiver Danny Amendola from the New England Patriots, wide receiver Albert Wilson from the Kansas City Chiefs, and guard Josh Sitton from the Chicago Bears. In the 2018 NFL Draft the Dolphins selected safety Minkah Fitzpatrick from Alabama. The Dolphins also selected tight end Mike Gesicki from Penn State. With a new and improved roster, the Dolphins are ready to make some noise this season! Their season will kick off on September 9th at home against the Tennessee Titans. The Dolphins will also have to face their division rivals – New England Patriots, Buffalo Bills, and New York Jets – in order to secure a spot in the postseason.
