We can be pessimistic, optimistic, or somewhere in between...realistic. Ted Larsen appears to be an average lineman. He's started many times during his career, but it doesn't look like he can fill the shoes of Sitton who was a pro-bowler. If Larsen can do the guard job well, say 90 percent of the time, Tannehill will do okay and not be sacked from a weak guard position. This is my optimistic vie

Dolphins versus Jets--our 2nd game of the 2018 season. Darnold looked quite capable this past Sunday for the Jets. Hopefully our pass rush and defense can take some of the starch out of him this coming Sunday. Offensively, we need to use our tight ends to move the chains and to put the Jets' CBs at a disadvantage in the red zone. Besicki and Smythe are both 6'6" tall and capable of grab

213. The Jets!
Decided to tune into MNF to watch the hapless Jets play Detroit. Well...Darnold is a QB. Matthew Stafford should of stayed in bed as his team was miserable and helped him throw 4 interceptions....The Lions front line is horrendous making the Jets look like a SB team defensively. Patricia, the Lions' HC has a big job ahead of him. No more Patriots culture to work with but a Lions' culture th

What a screwy day for Dolphins' football. I'm beginning to think the first two games should be away games as a means of avoiding early September South Florida weather. The NFL, not the Dolphins' determine when it's safe or unsafe to play. However, one must wonder why there is no "roof" so T-storms would not adversely effect play. I too don't take too much away from the first victo

Parker has not exhibited any special catching ability that I've noticed since joining the Dolphins. Injuries if real and as serious as alleged continue from one season to another. He may have been a star at the college level but must be considered a bust at the NFL level. Since I have no say with the Dolphins (LOL) it appears the brain trust comprising the front office and coaches still have a ho

Could it be that Devante Parker is "afraid" to play at the NFL level and is feigning most medical issues? It makes me wonder about it. Hmmm.

After watching pre-season scrimmages, I'm not sure that there was sufficient time for either of the "backups" to show what they can really do with the first team players on offense. Besides, with RT's post injury wheels, this just may be insurance for the team to have players involved with the team day in and day out versus having one of them or both eating chips at home when they get a

It is going to be tough to make cuts to get to 53. This game is mucking up what was happening during the first 3 pre-season games. Now, some "wannabes" look like starters playing against the 2nd and 3rd stringer hopefuls of the Falcons. Ballange looks like a keeper. The offensive line is playing well too. Also, noted, lots of energy on the Dolphins's side of the field--that i

The first thing a good coach does is train players to execute with precision. Doing this curtails stupid penalties. There was a time when the Dolphins were the least penalized team in the league. It didn't just happen. Gase has yet to overcome this malady.

Fins72, I agree with your assessment. While I do think there's a good deal of talented players in Dolphins' uniforms, most of that talent is not being coached very well. This is a theme that continues year-after-year. We have seen two preseason opponents now that have far better trained players than we do. Play calling from the sidelines (Gase) is incredibly poor. Not being able to score a

I didn't see anything special to write home about regarding the Dolphins "first scrimmage" game. Tampa bay, however, looked further along on both sides of the ball than the Dolphins. One of the players I did watch was #86, Gesicki. His blocking seemed sound and he may be a factor in keeping RT upright during the season. We'll learn more each week. I sure hope we see some strong de

Attention all posting members of the forum-- JC and I have conferred about the baiting and insults that go well beyond teasing on the forum. We don’t believe valid discussions should degrade into petty arguments and differences of opinion that hi-jack the topic. Such behavior is all too common and tends to dissuade others from visiting or posting on the forum. As moderators, it is our

This subject it like touching a hot poker. Old Glory is a symbol of this country's existence. When thousands get together at a major sporting event flying Old Glory is just something to remind everyone where they are and just how fortunate they are to live in the land of the free and home of the brave. Playing the National Anthem is a means of allowing the people in attendance to focus

Before TC is tar and feathered, let's see what the future holds with the Dolphins' new recruits. Several appear to be more than just on paper filling holes. I expect Fitzpatrick to be on the field as a starter in no time. His success is dependent on defensive strategy and a willingness to let him handle a variety of match ups. As for RT, I thought we might take Mason Rudolph, but the FO decid

Smythe is a big boy. He was used sparingly by the Irish, largely due to the QB play schemes of Brian Kelly. This TE has untapped and unseen potential as a receiver. A solid 'B' player "as is", IMO. Gase may push his development to be a blocker and receiving threat.

Fitzpatrick is an amazing athlete and played various D for Saban. If Gase can get him into a similar role, it may be the best pick in years for the Dolphins We need to see how this develops with the Dolphins coaching.

Gesicki--Love this selection. 'A' player. This pick solves the weak TE position and this player just may start, game 1.

"The tension is mounting." That's what the sportscasters are stating. Okay. I kind of feel--"here we go again, what foolish move will our brain trust do tonight?" Linebacker? QB? DT? It won't be long before we can state--"are you kidding me?" I'm not optimistic--can you tell.

Can't say I'm crazy about the current helmet logo. I prefer the original version. (The one on the helmets of our SB winning teams.) I also prefer more orange in the form of stripes--again much like the teams in the early 70s. You want to see more holding calls on opponent teams? Put the sleeves back on the Dolphins' jersey--just like the early 70s team Dolphins uniform.

TC--my opinion isn't carved in stone. It's all the variables, all the unknowns that effect success. Look at Tiger Woods for instance. Aside from aging, he's faced mental stress after mental stress plus physical problems that have changed two things, his physical state and his mental confidence. He too has seen his best years, IMO. Can he compete? Sure, but not nearly at his previous level of play

It's too early to tell whether the scheduled game opponents will be anything but so-so. It seems that the ability for most teams to improve over the prior season is fast becoming a lost art. Once we can see the final Dolphins roster and start comparing it to upcoming opponent's rosters we'll have a better outlook on what is in store for the Dolphins. Tannehill, of course, is the truly unknown fa

Leadership in Football: Some thoughts--being a vocal player, a big mouth, doesn't necessarily mean the player can get others to follow his suggestions, advice and energy. Leading by example, playing well in every respect, followed by enthusiastic words and energy may attract some to improve their thoughts and ability to execute plays.

14,000 yards so far. How many more yards will Gore gain as a Dolphins RB? He can still run and catch and may be able to provide some senior mentorship to others on the team. He's a proven player. I wish him well and believe he's a good addition even if it's only for a year or two.
