Producer-director Greg MacGillivray scaled the heights in more than one sense with Everest, one of the most successful Imax films yet released. With Dolphins, he proves equally at home in the depths. Of course, it's hard to imagine how a film devoted to the hidden lives of such photogenic and fascinating creatures could go far off course. Dolphins is both a compact survey of what science has learned about the way the animals communicate and a heartfelt plea to encourage their survival.

The new IMAX movie "Dolphins" doesn't have a bad word to say about its subjects. Dolphins are smarter than dogs, better at sign language than chimps, they think creatively, they are "graceful, powerful, majestic and intelligent," they call each other by name, and when separated, call out to each other "like lovers. " They also echo-locate invisible food, have eyeballs that move independently, and, while "tough," are "capable of incredible tenderness. " Given all that, I can't believe that George W. Bush is president, when just about any dolphin would be better qualified.

The last time the Dolphins played Buffalo at Joe Robbie Stadium, they came away with a 30-7 win. That was in the second game of the 1990 season. In the three meetings since, all at Buffalo and all defeats, the Dolphins have given up 103 points. That includes a 44-34 loss in last season's AFC divisional playoffs, and a 35-31 loss in this year's opener, where Miami led most of the way. The teams meet in South Florida again tonight (Channel 6, 9 p.m.). The Dolphins (5-5)

The Miami Dolphins canceled a trade for Chicago running back Rashaan Salaam two days after announcing it. Miami said Salaam failed to pass the Dolphins' physical. "After looking at Rashaan Salaam, we felt he was not 100 percent at this time. For that reason we decided not to carry out the trade. He remains the property of the Chicago Bears," Dolphins coach Jimmy Johnson said. "They felt he was 90 percent. He'll be in this evening or tomorrow and we'll go from there," Bears personnel director Mark Hatley said.

The Miami Dolphins have asked Ricky Williams to return $8.6 million they say the running back owes the team because he has decided to retire, the Miami Herald reported yesterday. The star running back shocked the Dolphins by announcing before the start of training camp that he was retiring at age 27. The Dolphins had been hinting that they would ask for the money but only recently made the request formal in a letter to the player and his agent, Leigh Steinberg. The Dolphins and Steinberg both declined comment.

The Miami Dolphins acquired quarterback Joey Harrington from Detroit for an undisclosed conditional draft pick, giving the Dolphins a fallback position if new starter Daunte Culpepper isn't ready for the season's first snap. "We're pleased to have Joey Harrington join the Dolphins," coach Nick Saban said in a statement. "We will work with him to get him acclimated to our system as quickly as possible. " The Dolphins had been searching for a backup to Culpepper and targeted Harrington, the former No. 3 overall pick who didn't live up to expectations in 4 years as the Lions' starter.

Running back Ricky Williams will rejoin the Miami Dolphins next week after an 18-month suspension for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy. Williams, 30, met with Dolphins coach Cam Cameron for seven minutes yesterday. They agreed that the onetime league rushing leader should begin practice Monday, the Dolphins said on their Web site. Williams, the NFL's top rusher in 2002, will not be eligible to play until Nov. 26, when Miami plays Pittsburgh. The Dolphins will play the Eagles on Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field.

In its recent past, the only thing Miami's defense stopped on a regular basis was Dolphins winning streaks. "When I got here, the defensive guys were invisible," said David Griggs, the second-year linebacker from Pennsauken who is one of five new starters on the Miami defense. "All anyone talked about was Dan Marino, Mark Clayton and the offense. " In this surprisingly successful season, though, the once pass-crazed Dolphins have undergone a remarkable transformation. By stopping opponents consistently, they've started winning consistently.

The jump start Jeffrey Lurie thought he was getting by "releasing" Chip Kelly six days before the Eagles' final game did not stop Adam Gase from taking the job in South Florida rather than the one in South Philly. Lots of reports said Lurie and his search committee wanted to conduct a second interview with Gase, who emerged as the most popular candidate among several of the seven NFL teams searching for a head coach. Instead, he went to Miami and accepted a five-year offer to try to lead the Dolphins out of a 21st-century funk in which they have made only three playoff appearances and won just one postseason game.

THE EAGLES and Dolphins were practically unwatchable at the Linc yesterday . . . but how 'bout them zebras? Two lightning-fast zebras in West Philly provided a brief respite from an ugly contest between two sluggish NFL teams in South Philly when they bolted from the UniverSoul Circus near the Mann Center and ran wild through city streets and shopping centers. The Internet rejoiced with photos and video of the black-and-white African equids galloping across an unfamiliar landscape - because that is what the Internet is for. Hashtag: #ZebrasInPhilly.

When the Eagles have the ball This matchup appears ideal for the Eagles' rushing offense. The Dolphins allow 142.1 rushing yards per game, second most in the NFL. They surrendered 266 rushing yards last week to Buffalo, including two 100-yard rushers. The Eagles could go for that feat with DeMarco Murray and Ryan Mathews, who have combined to give the Eagles a potent backfield in recent weeks. The Eagles have averaged 173.3 rushing yards over the last four games. With left tackle Jason Peters questionable entering the game, the Eagles lineup on the offensive line is still undetermined.

DeMarco Murray hit the ground running in 2014 for Dallas, setting an NFL record by gaining at least 100 yards in each of the first eight Cowboys games. With the Eagles, however, Murray merely hit the ground when the season began, gaining a total of 11 yards on 21 carries as the team belly-flopped into the schedule by losing two straight. Among the many mysteries that remain unsolved regarding the Eagles' unexpectedly poor start - even as they have evened their record at the halfway mark - the difference between Murray a year ago and Murray this time around is one of the most confounding.

N DAMUKONG SUH had a lot to say Wednesday. First he apologized to his mom for his potty mouth. Then, he pooh-poohed the Eagles backfield. The defensive tackle's mom was not happy at the words her son directed at a referee during Sunday's loss to the Bills. Suh's, whose not-so-nice words came after a ruling by the ref cost him a sack, were picked up by an officials mic and broadcast throughout the stadium. "I did hear from her about it," Suh told reporters. "I owe my mother an apology for swearing on TV and in public.

Ryan Tannehill is a quarterback who could give the Eagles a lot of trouble if his banged-up, less-than-stellar offensive line gives him time. I'm counting on the Eagles' defensive front seven to make that a mismatch, and minimize Tannehill. There was a lot of talk in Miami this week about the Dolphins being second-worst in the NFL at stopping the run; Buffalo had two 100-yard rushers in last week's matchup, which the Bills won. If the Dolphins make a big point of it and load up the box, I think Sam Bradford and company are finally in sync enough to make them pay on the back end. Overall, this is where we see whether Chip Kelly's constant emphasis on all games being equal really works - if the Birds stumble a week after their big win in Dallas, they will not have internalized the message.

JASON PETERS says it's actually his quad that hurts - because of a pinched nerve in his back. But Peters said he felt good Wednesday, as a limited participant in Eagles practice. Will he play Sunday against visiting Miami? Well, at one point in a discussion with reporters, Peters listed his chances at 50-50, and said it depended on what coaches decide. Later, he said that if "I had to make a decision today, I'd tell coach I'd play. But it's going to be up to him, and how I feel. " So, not a whole lotta clarity there.

EAGLES (-6) over Dolphins Nailed the Birds last week, and Double V is now on a 4-0 run with the Green Machine. Looking for "one for the thumb," so I gotta try the Eagles against this school of Fish that have no idea which way they are swimming. After Miami fired Joe Philbin and replaced him with Dan Campbell , the Dolphins posted two "so what" wins, beating the Titans (2-6) without Marcus Mariota , and the Texans (3-5), who just stink. Then the Fish reverted back to their losing ways, getting smoked by the Patriots (36-7)

It wasn't long before NFL teams wanted a taste of Chip Kelly's offense. While there was initial condescension from old-school hard liners like Bruce Arians, several offensive coordinators quickly implemented some of the Eagles coach's concepts during his first season. By the offseason, one of Kelly's assistants was already hired to run an offense. The Dolphins brought quarterbacks coach Bill Lazor to Miami to inject some life into an offense that was 26th in the league in yards per play and points.

IF YOU remember offensive tackle Jonathan Martin at all, it's likely because he was the guy bullied by Dolphins teammate Richie Incognito in 2013. Martin, drafted by Miami out of Stanford in 2012, played for the 49ers last season, and was with the Panthers when he retired in July due to a back injury. Turns out he was hurting in other ways, too. Yesterday, the 26-year-old Martin reached out to others who've been bullied in an insightful essay on Facebook. He started by writing he wasn't accepted by others in high school because he "was neither black nor white.
