Florida's Next Miami Dolphins License Plate?
Welcome to the off-season; the time to start speculation of all sorts. Here we go!
Last year, we all know that the Miami Dolphins changed their logos and colors.
Over the 2013 season we saw bits and pieces of the new scheme appear in all types of apparel, jerseys, and miscellaneous paraphernalia. One of the only remaining things that the Dolphins have not released with the new logo and color scheme is the Florida's Miami Dolphins license plate. Best guess is that the plate will be released sometime in 2014.
In October 2013, Finatics.com had a conversation with the Miami Dolphins marketing team about the new Florida plate. They gave us various hints of what the new plate would look like. They told us 1) The primary color of the plate would be white license plate lettering, on the new aqua background, 2) new Dolphins logo will appear, and 3) features modeled after the existing Florida plate.
Based on that, and some artistic interpretation, we’ve included our best guess. Let’s see how close we will be!!
Dolphins Notables Going Into Tampa Bay
The Dolphins still hold the record for playing in the most Monday Night Football games of all time at 79. They have the second most wins on Monday night with 40. Cowboys have 43.
The Miami Dolphins are 3-for-3 in coaches challenges this season. They successfully won a challenge in each game this season where they have challenged a play.
Miami’s 157 rushing yards vs. Cincinnati (10/31) were the most by the Dolphins this season. This was the second consecutive game that Miami has rushed for over 150 yards.
With a 7-yard touchdown in the second quarter vs. Buffalo (10/20), Charles Clay has caught a touchdown in three consecutive games. The last time a Dolphins tight end caught a touchdown pass in three consecutive games was in 2005 when Randy McMichael caught a touchdown in four consecutive games vs. Denver (9/11/05) at New York Jets (9/18/05), vs. Carolina (9/25/05) and at Buffalo (10/9/05). Through six games, Clay has caught three touchdowns tying his career best in a season. He previously caught three touchdowns in 2011. Charles Clay is on pace for 64 receptions and 726 yards, which would be the second highest totals by a Dolphins tight end in team history.
Cameron Wake has 48.5 sacks on his career, the most by an undrafted player in team history. Wake recorded his second multi-sack game of 2013 vs. Cincinnati (10/31) with 3.0 sacks. It was the eleventh time in his career that Wake has notched a multi-sack game. Wake’s nine multi-sack games is the fourth most in team history.
Randy Starks recorded his first interception and fourth of his career when he intercepted an Andy Dalton pass at Cincinnati (10/7/12). The interception increased his career total to four, which is tied for the NFL lead among active defensive tackles. With his interception at Cincinnati, Starks increased his franchise record for most interceptions by a defensive lineman. The ninth year pro has four interceptions as a member of the Dolphins which is twice as many as Bill Stanfill, who registered two during his eight year career with the Dolphins (1969-1976).
John Denney has now played in all 136 games of his nine-year career with the Dolphins. He passed Jason Taylor for first place in Dolphin history for most consecutive games played vs. Atlanta (9/22).
Brandon Fields’ 46.7 yard average and 39.0 net average are the highest in team history.

Dolphins Are In Meltdown Mode
4 straight losses after starting 3 – 0. Losing to the Patriots after leading in first half 17-3. Offensive line falling apart, AGAIN. The team on the verge of breaking their season worst “sacks allowed” record. Injuries. Players taking days off. Reports of serious dysfunction in the locker room. Coach Philbin losing it with others on the coaching staff.
Now Jonathan Martin. Reports are out today that Martin has “flipped out” and left the team. Dolphins are reporting his departure as an illness. Apparently this all comes as a result of a cafeteria altercation with other teammates.
With the team at 3-4, the Dolphins are at a crossroads for the season. A lot was to be proven if the team could have held on to win over the Patriots. And now, Thursday night they face the Bengals, a team that has beaten the Patriots earlier in the season. A win can give the critics some pause. However, It is NOT going to be easy. Injuries still plague the team. Key injuries include the new LT, Bryant McKinnie, WR Brandon Gibson out for the season, and Cam Wake still battling with a knee injury.
With the injury to McKinnie the team is forced to go back with Tyson Clabo. Prepare for another OLine meltdown.
A win over the Bengals can pull them out of this mess. The Finatics need a win, but a win will have an even bigger impact on the team.
