Game Wrap Up with the Little Prawn

Saturday Night the Dolphins played the Carolina Panthers and fell to 0-2 in Preseason.   The Little Prawn has some thoughts on the game he wants to share with you.

The Little Prawn makes a barely audible squeaking sound that no one can hear.

I am sure what Prawny intends to point out to you is that here Ryan Tannehill runs for an 11 yard gain on a designed run.  Look at the look of determination on his face.  Ryan Tannehill continued his impressive preseason.  Tanny went 12-15 for 102 yards and a TD.

I’m sure if you were able to hear Prawny he would be informing you that Jarvis Landry had 4 catches for 20 yards.  Here he escapes the tackle of one of the NFL’s leading tacklers in Luke Kuechly.  The linebacker managed to hold on but Landry fights for every yard even in the preseason!

Um…I think Prawny is pointing out some of the unusual tackling technique by the Panthers that helped Damien Williams become the star of the night.  Williams had 2, almost 3 TDs in the air and on the ground.  Williams looks like our #2 RB so far.  He is not going to take that job from Lamar Miller, who looked good last night too.  He notably caught a 36 yard pass making Panther defenders look silly on the run after the catch.

Yep, you heard that squeak right…almost 3 touchdowns.  Philbin thought Williams had a 3rd TD to give the Dolphins a 21-0 lead.  Here Prawny is clearly questioning what Philbin was thinking when he challenged a call.  Ultimately the Dolphins did not lose a timeout on the challenge because we won the challenge…um…sort of…

The officials marked Williams out just before he crossed the goal line on first down.  Philbin thought he crossed the goal line and threw the red flag.  On the review, the officials found that Williams lost control of the ball before crossing the goal line and therefore instead of having the ball on 2nd and inches at the goal line, the play was ruled a touchback.  Oops.

Here, the Little Prawn demonstrates where Cam Newton’s liver will go.  The defense looks pretty amazing early in the games this preseason.  3 and out seems to be happening a lot.

It wasn’t easy for Cam Newton.  The Panthers gained 8 total yards in the 1st quarter.  8 Yards!!!  Here Prawny is pointing to the defensive back who is about to intercept this pass.

And there it is!  Jamar Taylor with the interception and return.  It was the first interception of his career, preseason or regular season.  I thought he took it back for a TD but he stepped out at the three yard line.  Taylor would get hurt later in the game, which is worrisome for the Dolphins after the Delmas injury.  But reports are its a quad injury (as indicated by the shellfish) and not serious.  We will know more today on his status.

I totally agree with Prawny.  The rest of the game didn’t matter.  But don’t tell that to jaded Dolfans who are upset at what happened in the second half of the game between a lot of guys that won’t make either roster.

Yep Prawny I agree, that is a heck of a spike.  Should look great in the Arena League!

Prawny wants to remind you that the second half of a preseason game is a good chance to look at guys who might be on the bubble and not really much of an indicator of depth, which seems to be the talk of fans on twitter.  If we keep 6 wide receivers, will we keep Matt Hazel?  Prawny says remember his number!

RobinsonTD

The Little Prawn makes a barely audible squeaking sound that no one can hear.

And how bout this guy: something something Robinson, a tight end.  Okay, I will tell you his name – Gerell.  He played for the Browns in one game last year and was targeted once.  But on this play he helped Josh Freeman look a little better than August dog poop on the street by breaking a tackle and crossing the pile on!

    I think it was this year before he got suspended.

    The Mets were down 7-2 and now lead 9-7 after hitting their 6th HR of the night. Yeah baby!

    Tampa is whooping on the Bengals.

    The longer extra point sucks, it doesn’t make the game any better. I just shoved the ball down your face and scored but now its my side that gets pushed back, why?. Just leave it alone.

    If anything it should be an automatic point without a kick but you can forfeit the point and still go for 2. But just leave it the hell alone and stop trying to make idiotic changes for the sake of making changes.

    Bengals OL coach Paul Alexander said second-round T/G Jake Fisher is “falling behind.”
    Fisher was hurt before the Bengals’ first preseason game and remains sidelined with an undisclosed ailment. He earned praise in the spring for his ability to handle backup left-tackle duties, and Fisher was supposed to start learning guard this week. He’ll miss Monday night’s second preseason game.

    I’m going back and eyeballing the line play in detail. Gonna break down the first team by series.

    First series everyone looked superb with exception of Fox on one play where he got walked back into Tanny. Sims allowed the strip sack but I agree with FFR, that’s really on Tanny. He had tons of space to step up and didn’t move. No way sims coukda held that block much longer so sack really on Tanny, pressure on Fox.

    Incidentally on the first defensive series suh was driving two people back consistently everyone looked good Sheppard gots sealed out on the run for 8, Jones is a beast.

    Second series for offense had a hurry on Fox, but again Tanny really could have stepped up and avoided it altogether. After the big gain by Miller the run play just after could have been a score. The OL had it blocked well Miller just cut it back inside instead of bouncing it outside which was open. Fox again on the hurry an hit on qb.

    Third series: Fox with a hold. Turner completely ehiffed on his block on run play resulted in tfl. Whiff 2 for Turner on run play. That would been a big run had it not got blown up. Fox got beat again, but was able to ride him just out of the play. That should been a completion to Cameron. Tough catch but should have had it. James did a really good job pulling to block on the read option play. Fox and Turner blow up in pass pro next play. Caused a hurried throw. If it hadn’t been a quick pass on the next play Thomas would been in trouble as the DT had him beat right as throw left Tannys hand. Turner helping James who had his guy missed his gap on pass pro caused a hurry.

    They pulled the starters after that. Seriously saw not on mistake by pouncey or James, only on iffy thing about Thomas. turner and Fox weren’t horrible but Turner had the most just missed blocks, Fox was getting really worked by ealy, but seemed to do a better overall job than Turner.

    Tanny does need to get use to the space they are giving him up front and step up some. He didn’t have that luxury much last year but at least in the Carolina game he had tons of opportunity to

    china market opened 25 minutes ago, down 6 percent. Now china is allowing pension funds to trade to shore up free fall. I read recently china’s labor market wages are up to 61 percent of US’s. Those poor citizens who invested in china stock market losing life savings because gov’t encouraged them to invest.
