So it looks like Ryan Tannehill’s injury is only a sprain. It’s still serious and he is more than likely still done for the year. But at least it’s not a full tear that would require extensive surgery. I still can’t believe he was crying on the sidelines. The memes are out there already.
Hard to believe that yesterday was our ONLY home game in December. Thanks, Roger Goodell.
Reports out of Buffalo are saying that Rex Ryan is about to be fired. We play the Bills in two weeks, so it could be intriguing if the Bills were distracted with coaching rumors. Just a week after giving Jeff Fisher an extension, the Rams FIRED him today. So you can’t ever believe what owners tell you.
Jay Ajayi was averaging under 3 yards a carry yesterday, which might explain why the team went to the passing game. Defenses are onto the way we run the ball. While Jay still breaks off an 8-yard run here and there, those bursts are becoming less frequent. We’re seeing him stuffed in the backfield more and more. I do not want to abandon the run; I just wish Adam Gase would try a few more pitchouts or draws…anything except the standard trap play between right guard and right tackle. THAT play to THAT side of the line is killing us.
How many times will Jarvis Landry do some kind of stupid dance/celebration/penalty next week? The over-under is set at 4 right now. Please note: Running into your own player and fumbling the ball is a different kind of stupidity, so Jarvis’s over/under for that is only 2. The guy can be a fine playmaker, but Adam Gase cannot ignore the liabilities that Landry brings with him as well. The liabilities are costing us field position at best, and possessions at worst.
I’m still not able to forgive Kenny Stills for handing the Seattle game to the Seahawks, but since then he has certainly had a steady year and continues to be our only consistent deep threat.
I like the play where we throw it to Dion Sims in the flat. It seems indefensible, and I’m wanting Adam Gase to call it more often, or at least use variations of it. The best part is that play takes so little time to develop, and we’re not asking our o-line to block for a long time.
The offensive line had its woes yesterday, but did just enough to win. On Moore’s final pass, a linebacker ran in unblocked. Looks like Tunsil and Albert both blocked the same guy and no one picked up the blitzing LB. That is a mistake that has to be addressed immediately.
