Bills sound the alarm on Dolphins -- won't work

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y -- The Dolphins were awakened at 3:30 AM by fire alarm bells at the Hyatt Regency Hotel. There was no actual fire.

Just guessing here but, um, it was a bad joke.

This is not the first time this happens. It happened in the early 90s when the Dolphins visited New England. That night the players and coaches were actually removed from their rooms and they actually had to wait in the lobby until fremen gave the all clear.

The Dolphins' traveling party did not have to leave their rooms Sunday morning.

It doesn't matter. As I wrote in today's Miami Herald the Dolphins won't blow their chances to get into the playoffs this year. This team has been through too much to fall short now.

By the way, the Dolphins are healthy. Daniel Thomas, the only player questionable prior to the game, is expected to be available.

now they did it, a grumpy, pissed off Wake is gonna take it out on their 3rd stringer QB. lets do this!!

Mando are you saying this is a team with destiny and won't be distracted? I can't believe all the positive articles from you lately. Are these guys showing swagger? Where is this coming from? The tone is so refreshing.

Has Ireland been fired yet?


Has Ireland been extended with a 5 year deal yet? Some of these people think it's common to make picks like Tannehill, Pouncey, Clay, J. Wilson, O. Vernon and bring in FA guys like Wallace, Grimes or even Thomas. Pfft. Don't make me laugh.


I don't post as much when we are winning because I just can't bash the team, mgmt or fans when we are winning.

Enjoy the win today!

Run Up The Score!!!!


Take care of our own business and don't worry about anyone else. We take down Roethlisberger and Brady the last two weeks and potentially blow it by losing to Thad Lewis? For a second time? Really? Get it done Dolphins. Focus on today; tomorrow will take care of itself. NO MERCY TODAY! GET IT DONE!! LET'S POUND 'EM DOLPHINS!!!

Steve Ross drafted Tannehill...just so you know.

Local Radio broadcast..
Hey guys I watch the game every week on my NFL Sunday ticket but am SICK of the biased announcers. I want to get a local Miami radio broadcast on the internet and "mute" my television so...can anyone give me a link or which radio station if the best to listen to for the game?
Phins Up!

I don't think we need to worry about the weather today. In here at the stadium and it's about 38 degrees and NOT raining.

Great day for a Dolphins win!


Hey dbmfins what is the wind like? Forecast? Is there much of a Phins presence?

Mike M,

Very little wind right now. Slight breeze. The forecast is for 10℅ precipitation. Looks good.

The Dolphins have played in colder weather IN MIAMI than it is in Buffalo today (now forecast to be 50-plus).

Do you guys realize it's going to 70 in NYC and Philly today? So hilarious how people in South Florida perceive weather.

Anyway, certainly not "frigid" for the game and no factor whatsoever. GO DOLPHINS!!

If the dolphins get good coaching today we WIN. Lots of plays to slow down the pass rush.We can also get many yards and points by not dropping tanny back in the pocket and not scrambling as was done in the last buffal game.Mr.philbin and co.Please make us win

Who cares about the garbage Dolphins anymore?

Changable weather today because now a cold front has come through. The temp has dropped a few degrees and the wind picked up a bit.

Daniel Thomas WILL be active today!!!

Dolphins-Bills = Big Snoozefest

Thats bad news for the Fins!


Thanks Joe
Got it...

This is a football blog,garbage dolphins? Really?

The weather is not too bad today in Buffalo. Given the fact that there is a 100 percent chance of rain, the fins need to be able to run the football. At some point in the game the skies are going to open up.

This is a game where you miss Karlos Dansby. The Bills are going to want to run the ball. Phillip Wheeler has been horrible this year. Karlos Dansby's departure is one of the main reasons that this rush defense is rank 22nd. I would like to see Jelani Jenkins in there instead of Wheeler.

The Cheatros were involved

Drizzle now. Blah!

Not sure if you are right.

Steve Ross drafted Tannehill...just so you know.

What the what hell would we do without you joe?

Who cares about the garbage Dolphins anymore?

Dolphin Fans, Einstein.

Thigpen is horrible. That is another area where we have to improve. We need to find a dynamic kick returner.

Hartline drops another ball. What an idiot!!!

That hotel should NEVER host a visiting team again. The guy who pulled the alarm should do jail time....lots of it. Firefighters put their lives on the line when they put the sirens on and race through the streets.
