Derek Barnett is likely starting at LDE in place of Brandon Graham (got hurt in the joint practices).

I wanted to see him against Tunsil, because my questions revolve around him beating talented tackles that are better athletes.

Is Ja'Wuan a solid test? I know he's not athletic and struggled last year, especially early on.

He was atrocious the first few games but really picked it up afterwards.

what is everyone watching for in this game outside of the obvious Cutler, Pouncy, and the O-line?

Future Miami Dolphin Mychal Kendricks!

Good to hear.

Hoping for an injury free game on both sides.

Really? Preseason game 3 man, at minimum I have to think they go the first half.

with the way the offseason has unfolded... I wouldn't be surprised to see gase run them off the field early if he feels like they've got what he was looking for in the game.

Same. I think maybe some new-er starters (Jesse Davis, Mike Hull, TJ McDonald, etc) will stay in longer to get some quality reps. But guys like Pouncey, Cutler, Ajayi? Doubt they play past a half, and I could see them being pulled sometime in the 2nd quarter.

how many snaps do you think Pouncey actually takes before they take him out?  I heard gase doesn't really want him to play so I'm guessing about 2 drives for him.

I think Pouncey and Ajayi come out after about two or three drives, that sounds about right. Cutler might stay in a little longer. Pure guess though.

For me Pouncey is either ready to play or not, 14 more days is not going to make or break him at this point. It is time to see what he can do if he breaks down it gives Miami time to get someone else in before the start of the regular season.

I liked what I saw from Cutler again, I am not saying he is going to be great but I am really convinced that there is no drop off with him instead of Tannehill. They maybe have different strengths and weaknesses  but I am really liking what I am seeing as long as the O-line can stay healthy. This team still has a lot of work to do before the opening game bit the potential is there.

 I am thinking that Parker starts stealing some of Landrys thunder  this year and if Stills and Parker start stretching he field on a regular basis that could really start opening up the run game for the J-train.
