  1. How can we fix our Defense for 2019???

    I have seen enough of Burke to know that he needs to go. Miami ranks near the bottom in about all defensive categories. Miami needs rushers that can get to the QB there is no longer a difference maker on this team on the line, Wake has finally slowed to average status Quinn is OK Harris has just not stepped up. The line backers are young but talented and I feel if these guys get stronger and more experience playing with each other they can be special and Alonzo seems to be playing at a higher level this year then last. If Miami could play with a lead and get more pressure on the QB who knows how many more INT's Howard could have had this year. Howard is solid Fitzpatrick is going to be great in time the safeties are set but the second corner position needs to be addressed, Mccain is not very good but neither is any of the ones that replace him when he is not on the field.
  2. Probably the most excited I have been on a final play since Greg Camarillo TD catch and run in OT against the Ravens in 2007 to get there only win that season.
  3. With Howard out that means Minkah will be gone from the slot and Jones will be playing deep to cover the corners so the middle passing game and the run game should be wide open for the Patriots . Miami has not be able to consistent pressure on the QB this year so I see New England winning easily. Miami....………… 24 Patriots.…………. 38
  4. Week 13: Buffalo Bills (4-7) @ Miami Dolphins (5-6)

    The Dolphins have signed TE Nick Oleary to a one year extension. I like this guy he is a gamer very good run blocker and can get open. Mike Gesicki has been somewhat of a disappointment at TE this season but hopefully he improves next year.
  5. Week 13: Buffalo Bills (4-7) @ Miami Dolphins (5-6)

    It looks like Isaiah Ford is finally going to get a shot to get on the field so I am excited to see how he does I was a big fan of his when he played here at Va. Tech. As bad as the Bills are right now I still think they have a 50/50 shot at this game and that is sad. I hope Gase lets Tannehill rip the ball this week. Miami...……….. 34 Bills...…………. 31
  6. Week 12: Miami Dolphins (5-5) @ Indianapolis Colts (5-5)

    Gase is the one that continually backs Tannehill so he is either fooling himself or is to scared to make a move at QB and considering his choice to bring in Cutler last year and have Brock O as the back up this year does not lead me to believe that moving from Tannehill with another Gase pick for QB will be a good move. My gut says based on past franchise history Gase and Tannehill will both be back next year and after Miami starts the season 4 and 6 or 3 and 7 Gase gets fired and Miami does the interim coach deal to finish out next season and then they start a new regime all over a year later then they should have.
  7. Week 12: Miami Dolphins (5-5) @ Indianapolis Colts (5-5)

    Once the Colts figured what 3 plays Miami was running today the pretty much shut us down like every other team does. The lucky TD to Carroo at the half the missed field goal by the Colts a blocked punt 2 INT,s and a recovered fumble and still cannot win the game because this offense stinks and there is no one to blame but Gase.
  8. Unfortunately he my be ready for the NFL but it is obvious he is not ready for adult hood.
  9. Week 12: Miami Dolphins (5-5) @ Indianapolis Colts (5-5)

    Of all the off season moves that sent high priced players packing all of which I agreed with, losing Suh probably hurt the most and especially in the run defense. Bottom line though if Miami's offense was more productive and could get a lead in the game the defense would be more rested in the second half and the other team would have to be throwing the ball more to play catch up instead of just pounding the ball to protect a lead and eat up clock.
  10. Week 12: Miami Dolphins (5-5) @ Indianapolis Colts (5-5)

    With Tannehill back I am going to pick Miami to win but deep down inside I feel they will not. I felt this was going to be an easy win about 6 weeks ago but now I consider the Colts the favorite and Miami will have to play a great mistake free game to have a chance to win. Miami ….…...34 Colts...………..31 If Tannehill cannot go 100% the whole game this is a blowout loss
  11. Week 11: Bye GDT

    I was just reading that Gary Kubiak my consider being an offensive coordinator next year, if Gase remains the head coach turning the OC job over to Kubiak would be a smart coaching move if it could be done.
  12. Week 11: Bye GDT

    Say Miami chokes out the rest of the season and Gase were to get fired who would be on your short list for new head coach? Jim Harbaugh Bruce Arians John Harbaugh if fired by Baltimore I am ready for a proven head coach next time around no more first timers for me.
  13. Week 10: Miami Dolphins (5-4) @ Green Bay Packers (3-4-1)

    Cutler and now Brook Oswaller 2 QB,s that Gase personally brought in because he was familiar with them and they " know the system" he just has failure after failure on lots of big decisions. "
  14. Week 10: Miami Dolphins (5-4) @ Green Bay Packers (3-4-1)

    First time since 2007 Miami has gone two games in a row without an offensive TD, the old Cam Cameron days with those star QB's John Beck , Cleo lemon and Trent Green. I think that was the last time we had a head coach/offensive coordinator all in one.
  15. Week 10: Miami Dolphins (5-4) @ Green Bay Packers (3-4-1)

    I am done today I cannot take any more. If Tannehill is not back after the bye this season is over for sure and even Tannehill may not make that much difference.
  16. Week 10: Miami Dolphins (5-4) @ Green Bay Packers (3-4-1)

    This is a winnable game but I just do not think Miami gets it done in the cold and a late game. Miami ….……………….. 24 Packers.………………… 35
  17. Week 9: New York Jets (3-5) @ Miami Dolphins (4-4)

    Another ugly win but I will take it. No major injuries but Reshad supposedly craps out, (real nice way to set an example to all the kids playing football on Friday nights that think you are a hero) I hope things get worked out but that is not good. Was it Mike Wallace I think maybe that quit during a game a few seasons ago maybe.
  18. A shout out.

    Well my bad, If Reshad took himself out of the Jets game because Fitzpatrick was going to get some snaps at his position then shame on him. I will wait to get more of the whole story over the next few days but if it was a cry baby situation as to way he took his self out then shame on him.
  19. A shout out.

    I just want to make a shout out to Reshad Jones. Miami has some very good players but Reshad Jones is a man among boys on Miami's defense. I have watched just about every play of every game so far this season and he is playing at such a high level, it is just amazing to watch. With all the bad I have seen this year he is star among actors, watching him play defense at such a high level every game is worth the price of the Sunday ticket alone. Thanks Reshad.
  20. Week 9: New York Jets (3-5) @ Miami Dolphins (4-4)

    Just knowing the injury history of Miami and the way things go for this franchise makes me have the same feeling. Not much good being said about the injury and a lot of hush hush sort of tells me it my not be good for the rest of the season for Tannehill.
  21. Halfway mark and what are your thoughts on the season and the franchise. I think .500 will be a good goal. I have began to lose faith in Gase and his system. Gase is a 500 coach the same as Philbin and Sparano with the biggest difference for me being that Gase l he has had the better talent to coach of the three. Gase is going to be a mirror of Sparano a great first year and then tons of excuses why that success cannot be reached again and it is a matter of how many 5 to 8 win seasons the owner will be happy with until a move is made.. Miami needs a franchise QB but I have no way of knowing how that will happen. Gase will not step outside of his comfort zone when it comes to coaches and players it seems he almost always goes with friends and former co-workers. I am resolved to the fact now that it will basically be a win one lose one franchise with the powers that are in control at this point, but I have become used to that as a loyal Dolphins fan and will be watching every week as I fuss at the T.V repeatedly with you've got to be kidding, how stupid, what an idiot , this team is junk, why is no one covering that guy and my favorite 11 yards and a cloud of air. With all this 30 minutes after the game I am already looking forward to next weeks game.
  22. Checking the fan pulse at the halfway mark

    I feel Gase has a system that he wants to run and he tries to get players that fit that system and until he gets every right piece of the puzzle healthy and on the field at the same time ( which he never will) Miami will not be a perineal winner. New England has a better system, they spend the first 2 to 4 games every season adjusting the system they run to the talent they have that year and then start rolling. I know Brady is the big anchor that makes that easier every year in New England but teams that win 9 plus games and make the playoffs more often then not know how to adjust to any circumstances they are dealt each season and play accordingly.
  23. Week 9: New York Jets (3-5) @ Miami Dolphins (4-4)

    No Tannehill he is out,Brock at the helm again. If Miami cannot get jacked up enough to win this game at home then that will truly show just how low this team has gotten. I am picking them to win because they should but that does not mean deep down I think they will. Miami ….……….. 34 Jets...…..………….31
  24. Checking the fan pulse at the halfway mark

    I am with you. There are not many things better then meaningful Dolphin games after Thanksgiving.
  25. Checking the fan pulse at the halfway mark

    That is another trend with Gase over the years, Miami seems it can only play one half of good defense and offense per game, no particular half just random each game and to me that is poor coaching when you cannot adjust to the game on the fly so to speak.
