Game Wrap up with the Little Prawn

The Dolphins hosted the Falcons Saturday Night.  The Little Prawn was there to see the actions.  Let’s hear his thoughts on the game!

Well maybe you can’t hear him so well…I’ll just do my best to explain what he is pointing out to you.

NewStadium

The Dolphins unveiled their stadium upgrades, well the ones that are completed this year anyway.  Next year they put the canopy on it.

Prawny thinks it looks like a giant pool now. There is a lot of Aqua around the Dolphins these days.

Hey, what’s this jerk doing in Prawny’s seat?!?!

TheatricsDolphins

Prawny points out here that the Dolphins have a flare for theatrical effects.

Looks pretty cool right?

PrawnSpeech

Prawny gives a pep talk to the defense before the game.  Truth is, no one could hear him.

Something about “kill kill kill”!

EarlMitchelPrawn

Whatever he said clearly worked.  Earl Mitchell was feasting early on.  I guess playing next to Suh has its benefits.

The Falcons rushed for 50 yards on the day.  But a lot of those yards were in the 2nd half. In the first quarter, when the first team defense was in, there was a ton of negative plays.

The Dolphins d-line didn’t just look good, they looked great.

VernonSacksHolding

And it wasn’t just against the run.  The pass rush looked unstoppable too.

Vernon don’t care if you hold.  Vernon sack…Vernon just sack.

3Sack

This one squeaks for itself.

I think Prawny is pointing out the spot where Matt Ryan head detaches from his body.

WakeScreamPrawn

This is another good place for Tom Brady’s liver to end up.  Wake is gonna kill some one playing next to Suh!

The defense did not give up a touchdown Saturday night.

ScreenPrawn

But enough about defense.  How bout offense?

The Dolphins only scored 13 points in the game.  They were playing with a make shift line.  No Albert, no Fox, Dallas Thomas at left tackle (and he played well) and Pouncey left the game with a knee injury.

In this pic, the Dolphins work in the screen.  Me thinks we might see a lot more of the screen game this season.

MillerKnee

Miller looks well on his way to being a workhorse for the Dolphins.  He had 11 touches in limited time.  That included 5 catches.  Maybe the Dolphins were just working the running game because of the injuries to the offensive line.

In this pic, Prawny points out that Miller’s knee is no where near the ground!  He can fly!

Running backs tend to get big YAC yards.  But you want YAC?  I give you Jarvis Landry.

In this pic he scampers for 46 yards, most of those yards after the catch.  It probably could have been a touchdown pass, but the first player to make contact with Landry was Dion Sims…oops.  Well he was trying to make a block downfield and kinda got in the way…

Getting in the way during a downfield block is a lot better than Wallacing it I guess…

MatthewsTanny

Rishard Matthews would end up scoring on that drive.  Prawny points out here the chemistry between Tanny and Matthews who were drafted in the same class.

That wasn’t a bad draft.  Sure there was Martin and Egnew.  But there was Vernon, Tanny, Miller and Matthews.  Maybe Jeff Ireland wasn’t so b…..

I'llCutYouPrawn

Okay Okay…I’m sorry Prawny!  I won’t say anything good about Jeff Ireland.   You don’t have to stab me!

 Speaking of good draft picks.  Jay Ajayi lead the Dolphins in carries last night.  He had 7 carries for 25 yards.

Looks like some of these guys got their jobs locked up.  Not a lot of suspense in the final 53.

But maybe just maybe, this guy – Franks, takes the kicking job from Sturgis.  In this pic he hits a 51 yarder.  He has got a leg!

That’s right Prawny – Laces Out!

    True, and Peyton Manning had a 64.5 QBR game in PS, yet no one thinks that Bridgewater will be better than Manning this season…lol

    In the fantasy football world, sadly, yes 😦

    • manitobafinfan says:

      I was ina FF draft last night with a HUGE Broncos fan.. He actually drafted Osweiller.. Maybe figures Peyton aint making it thru the year.. personally I thought it was a wasted pick.. especially considering someone beat him to Manning in rd 1

    • getterdone says:

      I’d draft Peyton waaaay ahead of Teddy B.

  9. manitobafinfan says:

    alrighty heading home.. have good one..

  10. wyoming85 says:

    Rookie Jamil Douglas has pulled ahead of Billy Turner in the competition for the right guard job, according to two people briefed on the situation. Turner was informed of that on Monday and was naturally disappointed. The Dolphins still have time to settle on a starter before the Sept. 13 opener at Washington.

    • getterdone says:

      Guess Douglas will play the 1st half at least on Thurs, before giving way to Turner.

      WTG Rook, now make the coaches look like they did the right thing!

    • Tim Knight says:

      Competition brings out the best. Congrats rook and keeping working Turner. We’ll likely need you at some point in the season.

    I don’t think there is any way Brady’s suspension is not reduced. I’m thinking two games now.

    I don’t think there is any way Brady’s suspension is not reduced. I’m thinking two games now.

    and then he appeals even that and they hold off on the suspension till he announces his retirement in 2028

    • Brian in NY says:

      Lol! From what I’ve read the judge doesn’t feel the NFL handled the situation properly. That’s not good for the NFL.

    and that is pure bullshit. the nfl is a private organization they are or should be allowed to handle things any way they want. so what next, the a player doesnt like a call so he takes it to court and the judge tells the nfl i dont like how you handled that call, play the game again.

    Try to be nice to people, avoid eating fat, read a good book every now and then, get some walking in and try to live together in peace and harmony with people of creeds and nations.

  18. son of a son of a shula says:

    On the outskirts of a small town, there was a big, old pecan tree just inside the cemetery fence. One day, two boys filled up a bucketful of nuts and sat down by the tree, out of sight, and began dividing the nuts. “One for you, one for me, one for you, one for me,” said one boy. Several dropped and rolled down toward the fence.

    Another boy came riding along the road on his bicycle. As he passed, he thought he heard voices from inside the cemetery. He slowed down to investigate. Sure enough, he heard, “One for you, one for me, one for you, one for me ….”

    He just knew what it was. He jumped back on his bike and rode off. Just around the bend he met an old man with a cane, hobbling along.

    “Come here quick,” said the boy, “you won’t believe what I heard! Satan and the Lord are down at the cemetery dividing up the souls!”

    The man said, “Beat it kid, can’t you see it’s hard for me to walk.” When the boy insisted though, the man hobbled slowly to the cemetery.

    Standing by the fence they heard, “One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me.”

    The old man whispered, “Boy, you’ve been tellin’ me the truth. Let’s see if we can see the Lord…?” Shaking with fear, they peered through the fence, yet were still unable to see anything. The old man and the boy gripped the wrought iron bars of the fence tighter and tighter as they tried to get a glimpse of the Lord.

    At last they heard, “One for you, one for me. That’s all. Now let’s go get those nuts by the fence and we’ll be done….”

    They say the old man had the lead for a good half-mile before the kid on the bike passed him.

    “there was a few on some other blog that were screaming up and down about how ross had no commitment to winning cause he didnt make that trade like snyder did”

    I think we’re starting to finally see the benefits of having a plan and sticking to it. Those were the rough times hopefully they are behind us now. Oh God I hope so.

  25. finfanrob says:

    ‘ Oh God I hope so.’

    Sheesh! Almost missed my FF draft tonight. My wife gets home late from NYC on Mondays, and I was cooked dinner, we ate, and looked at my watch, and my draft was starting in 7 minutes. That was close.

  28. Tim Knight says:

    So I guess the idea opening day on the OL is this based on current intel? Hopeful no doubt!
    LT Albert/Fox/Thomas
    LG Thomas/Turner
    C Pouncey/Brenner
    RG Douglas/Turner
    RT James/Linkenbach…
