Miami at Pittsburg

The opening line was 7 1/2 points. Most of the betting houses have Pittsburg as a 10 point favorite now. Double digits in the play-offs, no respect.

7.5 is good considering we don't have a starting QB.

GO MIAMI!!!

Tannehill scored zero(0) TDs in the last Pittsburg game. Hardly a game changer.

24-32. 252 yds. He put Ajay In position to succeed. NO INTS. yeah anytime you go with a back up its going to affect the bottom line.

Dak Prescott was a back-up until Romo got hurt, "anytime you go with a back-up it's going to affect the bottom line". The rest is history.
Brady was a back-up until Bledsoe went down. The rest is history.
Morrall was a back-up until Griese went down and he ran most of the perfect season. Kurt Warner was a back-up until Trent Green went down.
I suppose you could say these guys were all back-ups for a reason too.
That reason being that they are NFL calibre QBs waiting for their chance.

Lol.....so. Marino was a back up to Woodley.

Brett Farve was a 3rd stringer on the Falcons when traded to Greenbay.confused smiley

I'm not getting your point. I know Chyren is thinking anything ,anyone that has a difference of opinion to me has one.

But I don't get yours. Odds makers take everything from wind direction and speed that day to make odds. Are you telling me having a career back up starting isn't going to affect the odds?

GO MIAMI!!!

Yup. Woodley started either the 1st or 2nd game which I actually attended at the LA coliseum. I think Dan was put in in the 2nd quarter.

Odd u should bring it up cuz given your way of thinking, U would havebeen backing our SB QB Woodley over the new guy Marino.

My point, my only point becuase I'm sure your analyzing this a million ways to fit your agenda.....eye rolling smiley


But take that game where Marino first took over. Now take that next game.....you don't think that affected the odds makers decision? The superbowl QB is out and a rookie is starting?

Our starter is out and a career back up is in. You don't think that's a factor?

Stop it already Cyrene. 2017 just started and your already being obtuse.

Only telling it like it is and unlike you NOT like I want it to be. It was obvious to anyone who could see that Woodley would never be the starter again. But had U been Shula, being the never replace thestarter philosophy believer, Woodley would have to have been struck by lightning to lose his job.

Never replace the starter?

Who said that? But you don't replace a 4000 yd starter , an incredible athlete.....with a career back up. Moore still has lines on his palms from holding the clip board for 5 yrs.

Odds makers will always favor the Steelers. They have a history of winning big games. If Marino was the starter with our team today, he'd a been a broken down mess by now and not the QB we remember. No only that but the Steelers would still be favored by the odds makers.

The Dolphins have been in the hole for so long reputation wise that we need a hook and ladder to get out of it. When we win the next SB and are right back the second and third year competing for it again will the odds makers give us the odds as the favored team.

The argument/debate about QBs starting for Miami and who is better is meaningless...as the team's reputation is still pretty close to rock bottom. If we were playing the Browns--we might be favored--their reputation is lower than ours. This is reality. The odds makers bet on the house!

I'm in a "pick 2" pool and have been watching the betting lines throughout the season and, it may surprise you that Miami has consistently been the underdog throughout the season, even with our franchise starter playing, the exception being when we play at home against powerhouses such as Cleveland and the jest.
I doubt the odds would be much different if Tannehill was starting since Moore has displayed the ability to put points on the board superior to Tannehill. Moore is averaging almost three TDs per game compared to Tannehill's 1.5.
Raiders and Texans? They're both playing back-ups. I'll bet Las Vegas is in a tizzy.

I just want Miami to win. I live in central Pennsylvania and most people I know are Steeler fans. I just want to be able to laugh at them next Monday.

God, every day thread u guys hijack and turn it into RT vs Moore. Here's a news flash: Gase will decide and none of us have a say. Also I think out of the plethora of posts, u guys have pretty much both beat that horse to the point it looks like hamburger meat.

Anyways.

Just listened to Colin Cowherd say that he picks the Steelers, giving away 10 points. His points were valid, but the Homer in me says a win is possible. It's going to be very cold most likely, and Moore will be taking his very first playoff snaps. Im setting up a set of dolphin prayer beads. Lol.

Anything is possible! I've seen some incredible shit occur in the last year! It's absolutely possible.

The win against the Bills goes down as one of my Absolute favs. Moore can't afford any mistakes. No turnovers and we have a shot. DEFENSE needs to step up.

GO MIAMI!!!

Our D is a mash unit right now so I'd like to see us come out in hurry up to try to put some points on the board early. No more establishing the run and becoming predictable.

If we start out on O with a couple of 3 and outs we could find ourselves down big early again. Pitts d isn't all that. Let's jump on them early and keep them on their heels.

It's official. Tannehill will not play; Moore is the QB against the Steelers. (Local news is the source.)
