Prawny is still in jail and missed the Dolphins win vs the Titans.
But in his place we brought another long time Dolfan, Lady Liberty! If you were wondering – No! She is not a Jests fan…yuk
In fact, she made an appearance yesterday
Here she is…Remember seeing this play? The difference between this game and every other game this season – the Dolphins did not fall behind early. Actually they got ahead.
You can thank Lady Liberty for that!
And Lady Liberty loved what Landry did with the play. It didn’t look like a touchdown but Landry made it one.
Let’s face it: Even though the Dolphins were bad in their first 4 games, Landry was great. He has been our MVP this season.
Another consistent performer this year: Rishard Matthews. Matthews caught 6 passes for 85 yards on Sunday including a deep one, kind of, for 24 yards.
Matthews is having a pretty good season this year. He has 23 catches and almost 400 yards. That chemistry with Tanny is really paying off.
Matthews started vs Tennessee.
But passing stats were not really the story…something else was…
I don’t know what you call this…its been so long since I’ve seen it
I think its called “the trotting game”.
Whatever it is we did it for 180 yards on Sunday. Lamar Miller had 113 yards trotting and a touchdown. He did that on 19 carries which is almost 6 yards a carry.
19 carries – are you crazy!!! Why would anyone give a running back more than 12 carries. Coach Campbell must be out of his mind. What’s next? 20! Maybe 21! Then possibly the NFL record…which I’m guessing is 22 carries.
The other story – SACKS. I remember what you call those things and they are delicious.
In this pic, Lady Liberty oils the ball right before Cameron Wake sacks Marcus Mariotta. The sack caused a fumble which we recovered.
Wake had 4 sacks…4!!!!!
The Dolphins had 6 sacks on the day. That is after only acquiring 1 sack in the first 4 games. Vernon had 1 sack on the day. Lady Liberty tried to oil that ball too but the QB went down so quick…
The Titans gained 299 yards on the day and only 63 yards on the ground on 18 trotting attempts.
And the Defense created turnovers too!
Rashad Jones had a pick 6. The play was a huge play early in the 3rd quarter which you can tell by Lady Liberty’s celebration. After the score the Dolphins lead the game 24-3. By that time we were in the driver’s seat.
The Titans would make a push…but it would not last to long.
Thanks Brent Grimes. Lady Liberty wants to dress as Grimes for Halloween. What do you think?
Some people within the Titans Organization think the Dolphins were a bit too physical.
Lady Liberty salutes those people in this pic.
What’s that Lady Liberty? Coach Campbell is going to get a surprise!
He deserves it. And according to Coach Campbell its right back to hitting each other this week at practice.
