The Dolphins face an uphill, but winnable, game in Pittsburgh today.   On Saturday, both road teams were blown out, so let’s hope the Dolphins reverse that trend. The game will come down to the Dolphins’ offensive playmakers.   Can Landry, Ajayi, and Stills all put something together?  Can Matt Moore even get the ball to them?    A lot of that will depend on the O-line, but even more will depend on Adam Gase learning his lessons.   Will he continue to call pass plays every single time we have 3rd and one?     A lot will come into play. So far, I’veRead More →

When the Buffalo Bills took the lead for the first time with 1:20 left, I was already preparing this blog, ready to state (and to prove) that Adam Gase is simply an awful playcaller.    We all knew that the Dolphins were going to lose.  We all knew it. But then after the Dolphins completed the miracle victory, I hesitated for a minute.  We won the game, so obviously Gase wasn’t so bad, right? Wrong!  Very, very wrong.   Adam Gase is the worst, win or lose. On a day when Mr. Jay Ajayi AVERAGED over 6 yards per carry, Adam Gase didn’t want toRead More →

  The Dolphins decimated defense got no good news overnight, and it now looks like all 3 linebackers will be 3rd and 4th stringers.    Not that our starters were any good either, but you get the idea. If the following paragraph looks familiar, it’s because it’s a verbatim repeat of last week.   Adam Gase refused to comply with my common-sense wishes, so let’s hope he learned his lesson.  Sadly, however, he is a stubborn, slow learner.  He has a pass-first mind set that needs to be reset. I can envision (HOPE) that Jay Ajayi goes off today after several weeks of so-so rushing.Read More →

On a day where it’s easy to blame the Olphins (no “D”)  on the defensive side of the ball, or to blame Ryan Tannehill and his three interceptions, or to blame anyone else, you have to look no further than blaming our rookie head coach and his awful decisions. This ugly blowout falls squarely on the shoulders of Adam Gase. You have to start with the first series.  Just like in previous weeks when we fell behind 7-0 or even 14-0 in the last 4 games.  We came out flat and empty. We were on defense, and the Ravens hit a bunch of short slantRead More →

Let’s hope that Parker learns how to time his leaps and come down in bounds for once. Dolphins 26, Ravens 13.      The Ravens don’t scare anyone of offense anymore, although I’ll probably eat my words as Mike Wallace goes off. I can envision (HOPE) that Jay Ajayi goes off today after several weeks of so-so rushing.   Gase should call more pitchouts and sweeps, because opposing defenses have learned how to stop the traps between the guard and tackle that Ajayi was exploiting earlier.   I also hope Gase has the offense ready to go from the get-go.   We are constantly going threeRead More →

Dolphins 23, Niners 17.      A tighter victory than I’d like, but we’ll take it.

We know that Zach Vigil and Thomas Duarte were promoted to the active roster, and we can now confirm they will suit up today.   Duarte was a bit up-and-down in the preseason, and now we’ll see what he can do. Vigil was a fan favorite, and I expect that to continue with some big hits today. Come on over to the CHAT at http://dolphinstruth.com/chat-room/game-day-chat/  Read More →

As I expected, LeSean McCoy will indeed play today for the Bills.   Rex Ryan is always good at hiding and surprising us with little injury items like this to keep the opponent guessing all week.

I won’t repeat what the many other game previews have already stated.   A lot of focus this week has been on Richie Incognito coming back to town.   If I were the Dolphins’ defense, I’d be more concerned with shifty ex-Dolphin Mike Gillislee.    In addition, Charles Clay has been an effective weapon for the Bills this year, but he hadn’t scored a touchdown yet.    That means he’s overdue, and overdue players always seem to have breakout games against the Dolphins.  And of course, the Bills have Pro Bowl kicker Dan Carpenter, while we have a guy who’s had TWO chip shots blockedRead More →

The rumors and speculation were true.   Reshad Jones was officially placed on IR and is out for the season. It’s a tough blow to the Dolphins, and frankly it surprises me that Jones couldn’t make it through.   He’s shown resiliency in the past, but I suspect this time, the torn rotator cuff is just too severe to risk playing.   I’d like to see what rookie Jordan Lucas can do in the secondary, but it will be hard to get him or anyone to perform at Jones’ level. Tyrod Taylor is our next opponent.   He’s not a great passer, but he runsRead More →

The Denver Broncos are the latest team to take a chance on young Billy.  After getting cut twice by the Dolphins and then the Ravens, Turner tries again. On other news, Reshad Jones is questionable for Sunday…and the season.   Her has a potential rotator cuff injury.   That’s not as devastating to a safety as it is to a baseball player, so I predict Jones will tough it out. Three Dolphins are now eligible to come off the PUP list and play:  Zach Vigil, Chris Culliver, and our old pal Dion Jordan.    Vigil would probably replace Spencer Paysinger, who hasn’t done anything wrong,Read More →

As we always say at Dolphins Truth, it’s not rocket science.   When something (or someone) is working well, then keep doing it.  Over and over again, until it no longer works.  And by relation, if something is NOT working, then you must abandon it. That is an unquestionable tenet of the NFL, but one which Adam Gase refused to accept.  Until the Steelers came to town. Gase FINALLY did a few things right.  Simple things that we’ve been calling on him to do: He realized that putting Ryan Tannehill in a 7-yard-deep straight dropback every other play was a disaster.   So he gaveRead More →

I think this one could be over soon.  The only chance we have is if all the drama, negativity, and garbage play is behind us.   If we just play our game and play it well, we might just win one of the 4 quarters. Winning the entire game, on the other hand…  We don’t have a chance unless we give the ball to Ajayi early and often.   Need a 100-yard game from him.
