The Dolphins lost the game and their starting quarterback, leaving Dolphins Nation with a numb feeling and a lot of doubt. Teddy Bridgewater had some nice moments, but is he a guy who can lead us for while Tua recovers? IF he recovers? That injury looked serious, folks. The hit was borderline dirty too, as the defender totally whipped the much lighter Tua to the ground. Xavien Howard coming out of the game with a sore butt? I don’t get that. Mike Gesicki and Teddy getting crossed up on that final interception…right when we were moving in for the winning TD? That one hurt. StillRead More →

I would like our chances a lot better of we didn’t have a short week with a lot of banged up guys. I might be the exception, but I don’t think the Bengals are your typical AFC Champion juggernaut. I still can’t figure out how they beat the Chiefs in the title game last year. Their Super Bowl performance showed that they are a fine team, but nothing elite. All in all, they are beatable. I hope the Dolphins keep grinding. No one should walk away from this game saying that 3-1 is a nice start. No, not when you have the chance to beRead More →

A few things that come to mind after yet another hard-fought, exciting win. First, we are 3-0. We were 3-0 under Gase and missed the playoffs. We were 3-0 under Philbin and then got gashed on a primetime game to fall to 3-1, and we sort of derailed after that. We did make the playoffs that year, but had to face the Steelers in Pittsburgh, with backup Matt Moore. So 3-0 is much much better than 0-3, but nothing has been accomplished yet. Thursday will be a good test of the Dolphins’ ability to keep the pedal to the floor. Jimmy Johnson used to talkRead More →

I hate to stop talking about the Ravens game, but it’s time to look forward. I think if the Dolphins have a chance to win, it has to be a slugfest just like it was with Baltimore. I know Josh Allen is the talk of the town for all the NFL pundits, but I think Lamar Jackson is much better. We couldn’t stop Lamar, but we did enough to outscore him. That’s all it takes. By the way, I was a Lamar Jackson doubter at first, and I believed all the hype about him not being an NFL QB, all he can do is run,Read More →

This is the most impressive and exciting regular-season win since the 1985 Bears game nearly 40 years ago The new WRs and RBs tandem won this game for us. No way—I mean no way on earth—we win a game like this with Preston Williams and Isiah Ford and Patrick Laird. No disrespect to those guys, but they are not stars.Read More →

In the 2020 NFL draft, the Dolphins had THREE first-round picks. Tua went first, and I think he’s been a solid pick with so much potential to show us in the upcoming years. The next two first-rounders were absolute duds: Noah Igbinoghene  and Austin Jackson. Both were projected as mid-round picks at best, and 3 years later, I’m still scratching my head as to what Chris Grier saw in these guys. They’re still young, but do you get the feeling that they are still learning and ready to take the next step? I don’t. I’m not criticizing Jackson here because he got hurt. That is notRead More →

A win is a win, and it always feels great. But I’m going to start right away with some things that need to get better. First, as the game progressed, I got the feeling we were watching the 2021 Dolphins offense. Or the 2020 Dolphins offense. Pretty good at times. Some nice plays. A few. But… But, only one touchdown. But, Tua scrambling for his life most of the day. But, no consistent ability to rush the ball. (In other words, our line hasn’t produced yet) But, some very very lucky bounces that went our way. Such as Tua tossing the ball up for grabsRead More →
