I see the Raiders as one of those tough 0-2 teams, who drew a tough schedule to begin the season.   And let’s all admit, the Dolphins drew a pretty easy 2-game stretch.   Sorry, but the Titans are simply overhyped.    Yes, they were a playoff team last year, but only because there is a huge gap between new England and the rest of the AFC. That being said, these Dolphins seem to have a new makeup.   I’ve noticed momentum changes.   Our offense pounces on the opponent after our defense grabs a turnover.   And our Defense plays stout and tough after the offense has just blownRead More →

Let’s hope we never have another 2nd half of a game where we get zero points.   Although we held on to beat the Jets, it is a recipe for failure to only score in the first half. Let’s also hope that we score on our first possession.   A touchdown even.   It seems like ages since that happened. Let’s also hold the opponent and NOT let them score on their first possession after halftime.   Seems like the D always comes out flat and gives up 7 points.   Gotta stop that. And finally, lets hope that Gase and Tannehill mix up the snap counts.   Both of theseRead More →

Forgive the low-rez pictures, but I think they work for our purposes.   I studied the game a few times to analyze certain plays and certain mistakes, and these are what I’d like to share with you here.    In each case, a little practice and a little experience will be very beneficial, and I think these mistakes can be overcome. First, let’s start with our second-round draft pick, Mike Gisecki, who’s been all but invisible this season so far after hearing about such lofty expectations. Early in the first quarter, the Dolphins set up a screen pass.  Here is the base of the play asRead More →

Last week, Ryan Tannehill said the ball slipped out of his hand when he threw that terrible endzone interception to the Titans’ Malcolm Butler.   Yesterday, the ball slipped from his hand and the Jets recovered.   I don’t know how you correct sweaty hands, but it needs to be addressed.   These were both big turnovers near the goal lines, and the ball slipped while Tannehill wasn’t even hit.  Have you ever seen another QB with such slippery hands two weeks in a row? The fumble yesterday was caused by Tannehill’s panic on a broken play.   That is something else to be addressed immediately.  We’ve run thoseRead More →

The Dolphins’ leading pass dropper and wrong-route runner and interception-causing player will sit out today again.   This means the successful 4 WR combo from last week will be at it again, without DeVante Parker out there to mess things up.   The Dolphins will act like it’s a loss to not have Parker, but this is a much better scenario.

First, I’ll start off with how close it was when Kenny Stills caught the long, 75-yard bomb.   It looked clean and perfect at first glance, but here you see how the ball bounced around his hands for a second, combined with Malcolm Butler getting his arm in there.   A+ to Stills for his excellent concentration.     Now here’s a play early in the game.   It’s a frustrating part of Ryan Tannehill’s development that I wish he could correct.  He doesn’t have a killer instinct when it comes to noticing things.   The Titan defense is in disarray.  They were literally–and I mean literally– jumping upRead More →

A few highs and lows to begin our season, and let’s start with the lows so we can end on a high note… The lowest of the lows goes to the NFL itself. It is utterly ridiculous to suspend a game for rain. This is not MLB, and football players are not afraid of getting wet and dirty. Your excuse about lightning strikes is just that…an excuse. During 4 hours of delays, do you know how many lightning strikes occurred inside Hard Rock Stadium? The Over/Under was 1, and the under won. It was insane and unnecessary to suspend the game. The NFL is notRead More →

By all accounts, MarQueis Gray had a great pre-season, so it hurts the team that he’s out indefinitely with an Achilles tear.  Gray was versatile and a good team player, never mouthing off when he had to sit behind inferior tight ends like Julius Thomas and AJ Derby. The two rookie tight ends will have to step up now, so this is their chance.  We also re-signed journeyman Gavin Escobar, who at least knows the offense better than signing some guy off the street.   So far, the Dolphins have made the best of a bad situation. If you get a chance, watch the NFL Network’s one-hourRead More →

There were no real surprises with the Saturday cuts, and that is both good and bad. It’s good, because the Dolphins stuck with most of the players who were expected to make the team.   No locker room leader got the axe.   No experienced veteran got sacrificed in order to take a chance on some kid.   There’s a sense of consistency among the 53 men who’ve been together since April. It’s also bad because of some of Adam Gase’s choices.  It’s no surprise that Gase kept his pet players:  his personal favorites who don’t deserve to be on an NFL field.   These include David Fales, AJRead More →

Should the Miami Dolphins be featured on the Miami Dolphins’ App ? Yes, it should be a rhetorical question.   But very few things make sense when it comes to Stephen Ross’s handling of the Miami Dolphins.  I’m sad and embarrassed to point out (yet ANOTHER) example of Ross’s lack of priorities when it comes to our favorite team. You guys know who Mr. Ross is, right?   He’s the NY Jet fan who lives in New York City, travels to Michigan to watch his favorite sports team (the Wolverines) play, foists such luminaries as Clueless Joe Philbin and Genius Adam Gase on us, and thinks itRead More →

In a pathetic display the Dolphins’ starting offense only scored one touchdown against Baltimore’s third and fourth stringers.  Any time–that’s ANY time—your top-caliber players go up against a bunch of rookies and has-beens, you should easily score every single time.   But we didn’t come close.  just think how well we will do when we face teams in the real season, when we face first-string defense.  It’s gonna be ugly. It’s not too late though.   We can hope and pray that Adam Gase has been holding back.   We hope that he has a much better playbook this year that he hasn’t showed off yet.  Doubtful, butRead More →

A slow little white guy barely 150 lbs took the ball and scampered 71 yards against our first-string defense Friday night.  You have to assume that both of our safeties, and both of our CBs, and at least one of our new stud LBs are faster than this guy.   It just goes to show you that even though our men are faster than him, they didn’t have a chance to catch him because they were sooooo out of position. Adam Gase acknowledged this over the weekend, singling out Bobby McCain, Raekwon McMillan and Jerome Baker on that play.   Gase said they were all out ofRead More →

Last week, the booth announcers mentioned several times how bad the Dolphins’ offense was last year.   About 5 different times, they mentioned that Miami was ranked 27th in third-down conversions last year and like 30th on 4th down.   Unacceptable and terrible. But they didn’t mention their thoughts as to why.  I’m here to tell you that Adam Gase is why.  His play calling, especially on short-yardage situations, is the culprit.  I know last week was only preseason, but early on we faced a 4th and inches, and Gase called a pass play.   As usual.   The play worked, and we got a first down.   that stillRead More →

Sources tell me that Jordan Lucas is wearing #23 this year because Frank Gore wanted to buy #21 from him. The price:  $20,000! Yes, I actually do have sources and inside info. I hope Gore lives up to the hype.   Yes, it’s nice to sign a hometown guy, but that’s all we keep hearing about.   Come September, I want to hear about him running over defenders.Read More →

What do you guys look for? Personally, I just like to see the rookies go out there and show us what they can do.   Let’s just hope no one blows out their knee on their very first play! By all accounts, the offense is not performing too well in practices, so that could be a very dangerous omen when the real games begin…Read More →
