Like the Dolphins, I will be taking a Bye week.     I’m actually away for a week or so, but will leave this post up for comments.   Enjoy! I’ll be back for the COLTS game day chat.Read More →

Matt Patricia and Mike Vrabel both beat the Patriots this year by using simple, common sense. When you rush Tom Brady, it works. It’s not that hard. The Dolphins watched the lowly Lions decimate Brady one week, and then the following week Miami did the exact opposite of what Detroit did.    Why should we pressure Brady when instead we can rush 3 guys and let him take his time.   We’ll drop 8 men into coverage, so Brady won’t be able to find anyone, right?   Before you knew it, the Pats were scoring at will against us. A few more teams tried it Miami’s way,Read More →

A bye week.   That gives us 2 weeks instead of 1 to listen to Adam Gase’s excuses. Adam Gase began the game Sunday by calling for a deep, straight-dropback pass that was doomed from the start, forcing Brick Osweiler to throw the ball away, and he barely had time to do even that. But then a funny thing happened.  Frank Gore carried the ball for 39 yards.   He took it again for 4 more yards.  After a quick pass, Kenyan Drake ran the ball for 6 yards.   Then Gore again for 5.  Due to the rushing game, we were at the Green Bay 14.   54Read More →

The toughness and resiliency of the Miami Dolphins’ offensive linemen showed up yet again today, with both Laremy Tunsil and Ju’Wuan James opting out of playing in an important game. Yes, I know leg injuries are serious business, but with these particular injuries–which allowed both men to practice during the week–they were playable.    Just like Josh Sitton and Daniel Kilgore could have played this year instead of opting out. And yet the media (and Adam Gase) keeps claiming that the Dolphins will give their all for Adam Gase.   Have any of you seen this? By the way, backup Ted Larsen is out too.   WeRead More →

Each day that goes by offers more and more proof of how inept Adam Gase is. When questioned about our running game being so poor against the Jets, Gase had this gem of an excuse: When they called running plays to Kenyan Drake:   “We got caught in a couple of coverages that were not ideal.”   “Got caught???”    The very first thing you do when you’re caught in ANYTHING is to get out of it.    Don’t let yourself stay caught.   Better yet, be smarter than the guy who caught you, i.e., avoid getting caught in the first place. “Getting caught” while you’re still inRead More →

On a day when kicker Jason Sanders outscored both offenses combined with 7 of his own points (one more than Jerome Baker). Adam Gase talked about complementary football. If you ever needed proof to believe my assertion about Unqualified Adam, don’t listen to me.  Listen to Gase.   He said the offense complemented the defense.  His words. So when the defense forced multiple three-and-outs, the offense did nothing.   That’s complimentary to Adam Gase. When the defense scored us 7 points on a gorgeous pick-6 from a rookie, the offense returned the favor by going three-and-out the rest of the game.   Complementary football means both units feedRead More →

Dolphins Truth Chat Room Join us for the live game-day chat.    Will the Dolphins dissect the lowly Jets?   Will our D play well for once? Will Adam Gase call for a long pass on 3rd and inches?   You know the answer to that one! Dolphins Truth Chat RoomRead More →

Get ready for more antics from Torry McTyer! Let’s review.  Two years ago, while Xavien Howard was still a raw rookie, Tony Lippett was our best CB.   Last year Tony was hurt, so when he was ready to come back this year, he was gonna get his job back, right?   After all, that is Gase’s policy with Ryan Tannehill. But no.   Gase cut Lippett. Enter Bobby McCain as the starter.   Bobby is too short to cover taller receivers, and he’s too slow to keep up with the fast ones.  Did you see how well he played last Thursday when we got toasted for 5 TDsRead More →

Brock Osweiler will start his 4th straight game Sunday. He had an excellent game against the Bears, especially considering that he foud out he was playing about an hour before game time.   In the games against Detroit and Houston, he was so-so, but not horrible.  The defense clearly cost us those games and came close to costing us the Bears’ game as well (Thank you, Cody Parkey!). Today, Brock showed why i really like this guy.   He said he wants to keep the starting job, even when Ryan Tannehill returns to health.   Now that is a gamer.  He’s not spouting the usual cliches about “IRead More →

Vincent Taylor getting hurt should be a minor setback, because we already have studs like Ndamukong Suh and Jordan Phillips as starters. Oh, wait. Happy Halloween to Adam Gase. Who wants to win games when it’s far more important to ensure your players never ever speak up and ask for more playing time? By the way, Tannehill is officially out, so Brock n Roll continues for another week.Read More →

Who should the head coach answer to?   The owner?  No, the owner is too busy rooting for Michigan University and planning soccer tournaments from his condo in NY City. Maybe then the media could make him answer some tough questions at least?  No, the media is too busy letting him get away with snide and incorrect answers. The fans?  I seriously doubt Adam Gase has ever listened to fans…or noticed the half-empty stadium that he himself is part of causing. This is usually the time of year when we start seeing the annual articles about how mediocre the Dolphins are.   The Herald and the SunRead More →

During a bye week, I find myself bored to death on Sunday.  Sure, there are other games to watch, but it’s not the same knowing our beloved Dolphins aren’t out there. This Sunday will be even worse, because we have the sting of two straight losses eating at us.   It’s not quite boredom, but depression.     So many What Ifs.   It would have been sooooooooooooo much nicer if Adam Gase had ran the ball on 4th and inches.   Or if he didn’t try a stupid onside kick.  Or if the defense remembered we had a game. But none of that happened, and now the gnawingRead More →

Which incorrect decision by the genius QB Whisperer hurt us the most:   Calling a pass play (while leaving JJ Watt unblocked and leaving Frank Gore fully covered) when we needed on inch.  25 millimeters.  And he called a pass.  Calling an onside kick when we had recovered all momentum.  Hiring his friend Matt Burke instead of a reputable defensive coach.   We don’t often get the network’s top analysts covering Miami games, but I was agreeing all night long in our chatroom with Troy Aikman.   Troy was criticizing Gase all night (rightfully so) instead of saying how smart he was like other analysts do. Read More →

CHAT ROOM NOW OPEN    In a play that the Fox announcers* failed to recognize last Sunday, the Dolphins lined up in a wildcat formation. Brock Osweiler was flanked to the left.   Jakeem Grant was the running back.   And Kalen Ballage was the QB. It was an interesting alignment, and I wanted to see what would happen.    But, alas, someone lined up wrong and Adam Gase had to burn a time out. We never tried that formation again. This is one of many reasons the Dolphins hover in the 20’s for points per game:   They try some ingenuity, but then theyRead More →

The disaster is now official.   Add two more skill players to the list of offensive producers who are now gone.  Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson now join MarQuis Gray in the medical ward.   Alongside Pro Bowl additions Josh Sitton and Daniel Kilgore.  And Kilgore’s backup Jake Brendal. Tannehill has missed time.   DeVante Parker as well.  (No jokes this time, just listing major important players who’ve been hurt). Of our starting 11 on offense, 5 are now out for the year and 2 others have been limited.   Those are tough odds to overcome.   The bothersome thing is that none of these injuries are the old ACL. Read More →

Yes, we will probably not have Albert Wilson in 3 days.   Kenny Stills is likely out too. But neither of those scenarios is worth letting DeVante Parker play.   Parker causes negative plays, so him not suiting up is more beneficial than forcing him to fill in.  The guy has never hustled in his entire Dolphin career, and he causes turnovers for us.   He’s awful.   I just hope no G.M. from another team reads this.   I want other teams to think that DeVante is good. Amari Cooper just got traded for a FIRST ROUND PICK.     Surely DeVante Parker is worth a Second or Third.Read More →

In a throwback to those atrocious Sundays in the late 80s and 90s, the olphins D simply did not show up.   None of the three aspects were there.    The line couldn’t stop the rush, and the linebackers–typically an insurance policy so that a 5-yard rush doesn’t turn into 10–instead turned it into 70.  And the DBs gave up everything thrown their way. The Line, the Backers, the DBs.   They all get a big fat F. I don’t want to hear anything about how good the Lions are.   Don’t want to hear about some rookie runner named Kerryon being elite.    No, there was noneRead More →
