Jarvis Landry got schooled by his pal Odell Beckham. If there were and closeness in comparing these two, there is none now. Beckham got open all night long AND held onto the ball when it was thrown his way. He made a miraculous foot-drag catch, while Landry dropped passes right in his numbers.
Beckham also didn’t commit a stupid penalty when we were driving for the tying touchdown in Giants territory.
Zac Tayor is just as stupid as his father-in-law, and Bill Lazor, and Joe Philbin and… Lamar Miller was eating the Giants alive, including two gorgeous long touchdown runs. See the last word of that last sentence: “runs.” But then we stopped handing to him. Again. We kept passing on first down and getting nowhere.
But when we ran on first down, Miller was ripping 9 yarders left and right. This is not rocket science, folks. Miller is the real deal, but we don’t give him the ball.
Damien Williams and Jamar Taylor are terrible players. Oh wait. If you just learned that after the Giant game, you haven’t been reading my column the last few years.
DeVante Parker and other Dolphins show little determination when going up to snag a pass.
The Dolphin pass rush is easily neutralized, and we have no Plan B.
Guys like Zack Vigil and Neville Hewitt played brilliant football when the “starters” like Koa Misi and Kelvin Shepard were hurt, but now Dan Campbell has forgotten they exist. Mistake.
Shamiel Gary is a Dolphin.
Dolphin tight ends are decent in run support but suddenly unreliable as receivers. Dion Sims destroyed not one but TWO of the Dolphins first drives. Jordan Cameron seems to have called it in this season. And promising Jake Stoneburner doesn’t get a chance to play, just like Lamar Miller.
Apparently, only the Dolphins got winded and tired, as Gruden kept pointing out.
Former Dolphin Orleans Darkwa is better than Damien Williams.
Penalties hurt. Stupid penalties hurt more. Are you reading this, Mr. Landry?
Management made good decisions to keep Franks and Darr.
Tannehill CAN throw a deep pass and he CAN run for first downs. And flea flickers are indeed legal!
