It’s been a fun 24 hours as we went from anticipating the kickoff, watching the game itself unfold, seeing THREE left-handed pass completions (one by Fitz; two by Tua), and then watching the media discuss Adam Gase. (as I write this, SHOCKINGLY, Gase still has a job). But for me personally, the best part is reading the NY newspapers and what they say about the Jets. As bad as the players played, the writers are roasting Adam Gase more than anything. I love it! Gase’s arrogance and stubborness leads to losses. We shut out the Jets, as our defense played well. But it could haveRead More →

I wasn’t going to write about this because I think it’s just a rumor that won’t pan out.   However, it’s becoming clear that Bell wants to play for the Dolphins and this actually might happen. While he’s a great RB, I don’t know if he’s the right fit here.  First of all, he had that huge issue of him holding out from the Steelers.  If you give up on one team, your mind set doesn’t change and you can easily give up on another.  He sat out and wouldn’t play for the Steelers, and then he chose the last-place Jets.   That does not sound likeRead More →

A lot more to come during the week, but for now, this win feels good, doesn’t it? Fitz continues his god-bad-good-bad inconsistent season. Jason Sanders is an All Pro kicker. Defense blitzed and mixed up the scheme superbly. Gesicki is better than Kittles. Our offensive line, minus a left tackle, is still playing ten zillion times better than last year. Adam Gase is next up.Read More →

Unlike some, I actually commend the NFL for what it’s trying to do and the ways they’re trying to play a season in the covid era.    You cannot have plans for every possible scenario, as there are just too many.   A corona case made public on a Monday (6 days before game time, which is plenty of time to tweak the schedule) is different than a case made public on a Thursday (not enough time). In baseball, teams took off an entire week if someone tested positive, and they simply made it up with an inordinate number of double headers.   The NFL doesn’t haveRead More →

Brian Flores faced a lot of questions today at his press conference about the QB situation.   A summary of what he said can be found here:  https://www.yahoo.com/news/everything-dolphins-brian-flores-said-191348154.html First, let me say that I don’t mind holding off on Tua.  Like most people, I’d like to see what he can do, but there is no need to rush it.  Second, Chan Gailey’s play calling yesterday, plus some inept decisions by Flores, hurt us just as bad as anything Fitzpatrick did.  How many times did we have to watch a handoff straight up the middle, for example, go for two yards? All that being said, I do notRead More →

This was a game that seemed close for a while, then seemed like a Seattle blowout, then felt close again, then a blowout.   Back and forth.  For the most part, the Dolphins hung tough and played well, but the game was ultimately decided but a few key factors: Early on, Brian Flores did not challenge a legal pass by Ryan Fitzpatrick that the refs said was illegal.  Flores might be a good defensive instructor, but he is the HEAD COACH now and must govern ALL aspects of the game.  He needs to become a smarter leader, not just a guy who “the players want toRead More →

UPDATE:  Tua practiced Friday and should be there backup QB on Sunday. So Tua has not been at the last two practices.   The Dolphins officially have said that it is not Covid, so that’s good.   If Tua cannot suit up on Sunday, then practice squadder Reid Sinnett would have to be the backup. That would probably be Tua’s luck:   He’s waited a  month for a chance to play, and when Ryan Fitzpatrick finally gets hurt in the Seahawk game, Tua isn’t active–and his debut remains on hold.  Hopefully none of that happens, but you never know. In addition, it seems like CB Byron Jones’ soreRead More →

Yeah, I know the Bills are 3-0, but they are a very lucky and overrated team.  If not for an iffy pass interference call, the Rams beat the Bills.  I’m more impressed by the Patriots.   Let’s face it, we all thought that when they got rid of Brady, their play would suffer,  But it really hasn’t.  Cam Newton is still learning the Patriot way, but it looks like he’s been in the system forever. The Jets are on the opposite side of the spectrum.  We can give some blame to Adam Gase, but those Jet players are atrocious.  I just don’t get the management ofRead More →

I wanted to share this fun site with everyone, because it does a lot of the math and accounts for all the tiebreakers:  http://www.tankathon.com/nfl As of now, the Dolphins will pick 6th and 14th.   Neither one is stellar.   As a reminder, we want Houston to keep on losing, as we own their pick. I don’t think the Dolphins are a playoff team yet, but pride prevents me from hoping they fully tank.  Would love to see Houston tank though. I like where the Dolphins are slowly headed, but don’t be fooled yet.  Jacksonville is a pretty bad team with a flukey QB.  Our defense did wellRead More →

I’m starting right off with praise for the offensive line.  I thought this squad might be a disaster a few weeks ago, but they are gelling nicely.  I can’t believe 4 brand new guys, plus Jesse Davis, have pass-protected so well. Special props to rookies Solomon Kindley and Austin Jackson.   I’m so impressed with these two starters.   Not to be missed, however, is the work of rookie guard Robert Hunt.   He’s not starting, but he came in last night during the goal line plays and helped Jordan Howard get into the end zone.  The Dolphins went with extra linemen and sold out on the run. Read More →

I’m not a fan of these Thursday games at all, and hate the fact that the NFL sees the Dolphins as a doormat and forces our annual TNF game to be on the road every time.   At least it’s a short trip this year. I think the offense will be fine and can score 24+ tonight.  The big question mark is the defense.   I don’t like the schemes, and I hate the fact that Flores won’t adjust the scheme.   We shall see.

On a day when Brian Flores should have kicked a field goal and Preston Williams dropped a ball right in his arms, the Olphins did not lose because of those mistakes.   Instead, they lost because the defense forgot to show up. Whether it was highly touted rookies who got burned all day like Noah Igbinoghene, or highly priced free agents and veterans who did nothing at all, like Xavien Howard, Byron Jones, Shaq Lawson, and Bobby McCain, the result was consistently dreadful.   Worse, Brian Flores allowed this all game long.   He changed up nothing, and simply thought it would all get magically better.

The King of All Overrated Teams comes to Miami this weekend.   They love their QB, Josh Allen, so much that they drafted another QB “just in case.” Their defense is allegedly good, and yet they let the lowly Jets put up 17 on them last week.   PLUS…the Bills’ best players on defense opted out to free agency, as they couldn’t wait to get out of Buffalo and its long, long history of losing. For the record, losing 4 Super Bowls in a row is nothing to be proud of.  There are no trophies handed out for appearances.  Wide right will always be wide right. Yet,Read More →

Joe Burrow is 0-2, but he’s played well in both games.  I believe the way the Bengals are handling him will be compared to the way the Dolphins handle Tua and the Chargers handle Justin Herbert for years to come. The Bengals opted to get rid of perennial loser, expensive Andy Dalton and initiate the Burrow era. The Dolphins opted to keep perennial loser Ryan Fitzpatrick and store Tua on ice.   (Sorry, I love Fitz, but we gotta be honest here.) The Chargers opted to keep perennial loser Tyrod Taylor and store Herbert on ice. The end results are far far from over.  The Chiefs letRead More →
