Dolphins-Jets.jpg

After feasting on a horrible Lions team last night, it falls to us to expose the Yets for what they are: a bad team with a rookie QB.

The Lions defense sucks. Then again ours isn't great either.

Same. Defense looked quite good too.

Divisional games are never easy, but this will be a tough battle. A Bowles-coached defense is a great test for our fully healthy offense.

Dolphins win, 21 - 20

Once again, the Dolphins are underdogs as the national media completely downplays our win over the Titans. In fact, on one show I watched, the talking head said that it was a shame that the Titans were so banged up because it would have been a great game if everyone was healthy. I'm sorry, but injuries happen and good teams overcome them. Whatever, on to this game. This is going to be a very exciting game. The Jets are riding high after an impressive road victory, and the stadium is always packed when we play. This is going to be a tough environment for the offense. Darnold looked good for his first game, but he can be fooled, and I can't believe I am typing this, but the Dolphins have th speed on defense to make him pay for any mistakes. The Jets are going to try to pound the rock, and then throw from play action. The Dolphins need to hold the Jets to field goals, because the Jets will be able to move the ball. On offense, Tannehill will be better now that he is getting back into it. Gase called a basic game against the Titans, he really didn't target the TE's and RB's in the passing game. This week, he will have to. The Jets have a good defense, and they are going to double cover Stills all game, thinking that he is the only real threat. As I said last week, leave Grant with single coverage at your own risk. Tannehill missed him on that Int., he was wide open. Wilson also has some wheels, and Amendola is very crafty. I think that the WR's will still make some plays, but the deep pass to Stills will be taken away. With the safties worried about Stills, that is going to open up the TE's and RB's in the short passing game. The Jets LB's are good at covering the middle, so Tannehill needs to attack the flats and allow his TE, RB to use their speed to turn short passes into long gains. The Dolphins specials teams seem legit. The kick return TD was from a bad kick, the coverage was pretty good, they just couldn't get off the blocks fast enough to make a play because of the short field. I predict a very close, down to the last possession game. Dolphins get 3 TD's through the air, one on the ground, and a field goal to win it. The Jets get 2 TD's in the air, 2 TD's on the ground. 31 Dolphins, 28 Jets.

I think the only way the Jets beat Miami is if they rush for 200+ yards and I am not saying that cannot happen. Miami will take the passing game away, and the Jets will have to beat Miami with the ground game and ball control.

I must say, after week 1, I’m actually interested in watching two AFC EAST rivals go at it!!!  Miami fans, have you guys all but given up hope on Parker ever living up to the hype he had coming out of college? Is it lack of effort or is he just fragilé like the leg lamp in Christmas story?!?!?

We picked up his 5th year option but I think he's just about run out of chances here. We'll see how well he plays when he actually can suit up.

It looks like he'll suit up. We'll see. Whether he can reach his potential or not, he brings a unique skillset / size to their WR corps.

 

LG Josh Sitton hasn't practiced two days in a row. No excuses, next man up (Ted Larsen).

Could be worse. Larsen was the starter while healthy last season. Now he's the primary backup. Tannehill's offensive line during his run in 2016 was absolutely brutally bad. No excuses.

Sitton is still far better than Larsen...
