It’s (Preseason) GAME DAY! #2

The joint practices between the Dolphins and Panthers wrap up tonight with preseason game 2 in Charlotte.  After warnings about fighting with the opposing teams, only one minor skirmish was reported during the joint practice sessions.  Not so bad.  Each team lost a player for the season with an ACL injury.  Delmas for the Dolphins and WR Kelvin Benjamin for the Panthers.  Not so good.  There were also reports the Panthers coaching staff asked the Dolphins to dial back their pass rush because the Panthers were overwhelmed OR alternatively both teams agreed to dial it back for a 2 minute drill.   Whatever you need to tell yourself.  Either way, it will all be settled with the game tonight.

    The preseason is always a great time for situational football, and the Dolphins defense got their first shot at a goal line stand Saturday evening. They held the line from inside their own 2 yard line, stuffing a bowling ball of a back in Mike Tolbert twice, rookie Cameron Artis-Payne once, and blowing up a planned play action pass to turn the Panthers over on downs. Ndamukong Suh was an obvious presence during the stand, but safety Walt Aikens was the standout from the series. He put himself in perfect position to stuff the third down run with Suh, and also wreaked havoc by bumping Greg Olsen off the line on fourth down, forcing Cam Newton to pull the ball down come up short of the goal line.

    The Dolphins first team defense wasn’t just good for that series though, as they started the game with consecutive three and outs. Safety Reshad Jones was again the catalyst, playing shot out of a cannon from the secondary, and residing in the offensive backfield and at the line of scrimmage.

    I am still a fan of lolly pops though….

    He will show show show ya…hell he already has!!!
    To make the playoffs the rest of the team needed to be better….we are now seeing that with another good offseason of moves in year 2 of Hickey, year 2 of Lazor, etc etc.

    Getterdone, I believe in Tannehill and have for a while now. I’m just concerned with the top sided salary situation and the lack of depth at key positions. We are hoping for our guards to step up (but their backups are worse than them and injuries happen, Same goes for the defense at LB, S & CB our depth is paper thin. Offensive tackle is thin as well. Too much can happen for me to say we are going to make the playoffs. All the other teams in this division got better on paper this off season too except maybe NE and oh, they just won the superbowl and always win the division.

    I am enthusiastically waiting for them to show me!!

      I knew what ya meant.

      I don’t think we’re as thin in the depth as it seems….we are just very young & inexperienced in the depth dept. These guys will get better as the season rolls along.

      BTW, Cam Newton got $106M to Tanny’s $96M….We came out better on that deal all the way around…IMO!

      We surely are thin on the Oline, but how many guys do we need? We’ve got Douglas, Brenner, Fox and Linkenbach. If we carry 10 from the Oline that 10th guy isn’t currently on our team. As we our now we can handle 2 or 3 injuries and still make the playoffs. It may be a struggle with our Oline missing 2 or 3, but Luck is doing it with a poor Oline, I think RT has arrived and can do it too.

      • getterdone says:

        Luck benefited from sweeping their crappy division opponents. That’s 6 wins right there.

        And still he had to come from behind to win lots of games. He gets it done during the prevent D.
