Lose the game, look like crap, injuries pile up and all of the positivity built over the last few weeks has expired. Tannehill is stuck on 8-8, perpetually stuck there, setting records one week and shitting the bed the next. You can’t win a game in Foxboro when you have that goofy grin on your face standing at the 5 yard line and the ball sailing past you. You can’t throw 2 picks in Foxboro and expect to win and you can’t reduce your offense to dink and dunk while the o-line ole’s the defense.

We very well may have seen the final snap from Cameron Wake as a Dolphin. It would depend on the severity of the Achilles injury of course but based on what I saw it didn’t look good at all. Where are you Dion Jordan? Thanks for nuthin’. Think about it, if Wake has a ruptured Achilles he will need a year to think about returning, he’s already getting up there age wise and if he loses ANY speed he’s marginalized. He makes his living off of speed and a messed up Achilles and being thirty-something is a bad mix. It’s unfortunate and very unceremonious but that’s football. It can all end on one play. We love you Cam Wake and hope for the best and hope you do make it back to the team.

What can you say, Dan’s mojo wasn’t enough to go into Foxboro and pull out a win. I thought our Defense played pretty well, they gave up the initial scoring drive but I thought they settled in pretty good for most of the rest of the first half. Giving them a short field made it easy for them and Tannehill, besides the oops Safety, threw a couple of ugly picks. He took some ugly sacks and he missed a few potential big plays. Oh man if the super-Tanny lovers could only hear the things I say about him during the game. I said Tanne-fuckface a few times, Tanne-dummy, Tanne-goofball…and those are the nice ones. He makes me completely insane when we’re in a game where we need a QB to take the team by the balls and go win a game, he just can’t do it. He’s stuck on 8-8.

What can the Dolphins take away from that game? Nothing. Forget it happened, prepare for the next game and move on. The Pats are good, they prepare very well, they play with a lot of emotion, and they have a coach/QB combo that is second to none in the league. Indy left while the gettin’ was good, they should still be in the AFC East having to endure this crap year in and year out. What if it was the Dolphins who left the AFC East and went to the AFC South and Baltimore became the fourth AFC East team which makes the most geographical sense. We’d still have to see them in the playoffs but at least you’d be able to sit back and appreciate some what they are doing a little instead of the constant clobbering we face and the incessant hatred. But alas, if you want to be the best you have to beat the best. That’s just a thought, as I’m sick and tired of them – the winning, the cheating, the Brady, the Gronk, the Belichick, the Edleman all of it. And now they have a pretty damn good defense to boot – OY!

Imagine if Cam Newton was our QB. Think he’d feed off of Campbell’s energy? Think he’d have a glazed goober look on his face as the ball goes wizzing by him? Think he’d be in someone’s face?

OK be honest. Who would you rather have as your QB – Cam or Luck?

Jay Luck or Andrew Cutler, lol. All you hear is that Luck is such a great athlete, much like Tannehill, but when do you ever see either one use it. Look at Cam, he punishes people, he uses every bit of his athleticism to beat you. There’s no question with Cam, you never hear about a threat of running, you have to fear his running. Meanwhile Tannehill drops back and acts as if the other team doesn’t have a right Defensive End. La-de-da I hope the guy I’m steering down gets completely wide open. Wait- not yet- not yet- not yet- POW!  Hidden in the Texas game was that he got sacked 4 times for 9 in the last two weeks.

Put this one behind you Dolphins. We all said if Dan could go 9-3 we have a shot. That’s just one of the three. Focus on Buffalo, who is struggling, pile up a few wins and let the chips fall where they may.

Best of luck and hopes for quick recoveries for Cameron Wake (Achilles), Ju’Waun James (big toe), DeVante Parker (foot).

Get right Dolphins and go win some more games.

    but the midget only got that chance cause the rest of the team bailed him out. if tanny throws an int the d will give up a td. and again not excusing tanny, he has his faults, i am just saying the rest of the team is no help either.

    and it is ok you are mad, an angry helping hand is always fun too

  2. Mike E. says:

    Rob

    What happened before that moment is irrelevant. He made the plays he had to to win the game when the game was on the line, at the end. That’s what matters.

  3. steveccnv says:

    We just aren’t good enough right now to go up there on a short week and beat them.

    Another problem with Philbin’s teams are they don’t borderline the rulebook enough, so in a game like last night where they weren’t calling anything they get killed. One they should’ve called in the first half was a PI on Matthews on 3rd down coming out of our own end, that was a huge no call with the score 9-0 I think.

    WTF was RT doing on the safety was he in LaLaland or what?

  4. Try Pod says:

    Son, finally took the time to read this. I was on board with the Tanne-shill/kill assessment, and though I hate to admit it, Newton IS a better all-around qb, but I still don’t like the “Stuporman” imitation. If you are a leader, LEAD- don’t be an instrument of derision. Anyway, good gut wrenching assessment by you.

  5. Mike E. says:

    Wilson probably is a little overrated, and I don’t think he’s better than Tannehill, but I think he’s willing to take the game by the reins, where I don’t beleve Tannehill has that in him.

    • Try Pod says:

      I’m not mad at Tanne- he was a wide receiver converted to qb- you can do that in college, but in the nfl the responsibility of the position is much greater, and I’m not convinced he will ever be consistent enough in the various aspects to ever be effective CONSISTENTLY.

  7. Mike E. says:

    I’m not mad at Tanny, I’m just williing to admit his shortcomings.

  8. Randy says:

    Tanny is what he is…an average NFL QB. Which means he can’t get you those 3-5 wins a year where it may have been a loss. He doesn’t make guys around him better. He makes the OL look like shit often. He doesn’t even look at big plays downfield sometimes and leaves big chunks of yardage on the field in favor of a 5 yard dump off. He isn’t a franchise QB other than his salary. He’s in his fourth year. He is what he is. Expecting him to “lead” this team to anything is stretching it.
    ***
    This franchise completely redid the offense and the personnel to fit HIS needs, and he still can’t take that next step. These losses are as much or more on him as any other player. He’s supposed to be the guy who gets us in the end zone. That’s his job. Like it or not…fair or not…that’s just the way it is. Just like Philbin had to take the blame for this team’s performance whether it was true or not and lose his job. Whining about it or making excuses for the kid doesn’t change that.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Lazor is also an amateur OC and the OL makes the rest of the offense look like shit at times. It’s still a team game and this offense as a whole is inconsistent and silly. LOL

  9. Mike E. says:

    One thing I have to say Randy, is that they redid the offense to what Joe Philbin thought was best for Tannehill. Unfortunately, i think Joe was wrong. He looks very comfortable with play action and playing under center, yet Joe allowed the offense to completely devoid of that.

    if he is thrown in the the rogers of the nfl yes then he is overrated. if he is just considered in the top 8-15 then no he isnt.

    Believe me, I know our team isn’t great, but every now and again, it would be nice if our QB did a little more when the other units struggle.

    Reply

    Wrong! Tanny was a HS QB his junior & senior years and then recruited by Texas A&M as a QB. But while @ A&M early on he was stuck behind Jerrod Johnson & Stephen McGee, so he asked Sherman to let him on the field so help his team. He didn’t want to just ride the bench.
    He later then won the starting QB job.

    Sorry guys. My son decided he needed to talk to me. Lol
    ***
    I don’t dislike Tanny the person. He seems like a good teammate and usually plays hard. I just think he’s limited and average. It just makes it harder to build a winning team when you have an average QB. The NFL bends over backwards to accommodate QBs. You have to be able to take advantage of that.
    ***
    And Mike, I would guess that many minds were involved in building this offense for Tanny. I doubt it was just Joe…or even mostly Joe. Just guessing though.

    • Mike E. says:

      Joe picked both Sherman and Lazor, and our offense appears to borrow a lot from what GB did before they got Eddie Lacy. Who else would you say had input on both of the OC’s that were picked, and what kind of offense they ran?

  25. Ken says:

    Son sound like Hulk. Hulk no know if he need to write piece now Son go off on rant

  26. stangerx says:

    “Boomer Esiason of WFAN reported on his weekday radio show that the Jets asked that their locker room at Gillette Stadium be swept for bugs in advance of last Sunday’s game against the Patriots.”

    But of course the Pats had to later kick in with their own take on this…….they are never in the wrong after all.

    “As one source has explained to PFT, the Patriots have become concerned that a team eventually will plant bugs on its own and claim that the Patriots put them there. This has prompted the Patriots to ask the league to certify before each game that the visiting locker room is clean before an opposing team enters.”

  27. Mike E. says:

    Stanger

    I kid you not that even if we knew exactly what NE was going to do on offense and defense, we still wouldn’t have won.

  28. Randy says:

    MikeE
    Sorry, I guess I misunderstood. I meant getting new personnel and making us a throw-heavy team that focuses on short passes. Not unlike lots of teams, actually. I would guess that every offensive coach and several personnel guys had a say in all of that. Remember, we got rid of several offensive players because they supposedly didn’t fit with either Tanny or the offense…depending on the story you believed.
    ***
    Yes, Philbin is responsible for hiring his coordinators…and, possibly allowing them to have too much autonomy. Many NFL HCs do the same thing. It’s not that strange or out of line. My point was. Philbin took the heat for his mistakes and shortcomings. Tannehill does too because they’ve done their best to build this team around him, and he’s still not getting it done.
    ***
    And, just for fairness, I thought the whole offense sucked yesterday….not just Tanny.

    • getterdone says:

      Pouncey said we didn’t run the ball or protect Tanny well enough. That will usually = a loss to a team like the Pats on their home turf.

      • Mike E. says:

        I think they protected him really well on some plays, but when all you do is pass, and it’s obvious you’re passing, eventually the odds are against you. i thought they had a few great blitz pickups last night.

      • getterdone says:

        Yeah you can’t stay one dimensional for long, unless you have a superior OL along with stellar play calling to keep the Defenses confused.
        We go with a lot of what teams see in our game film. They’re ready. At least the well prepared ones are.

  29. Ken says:

    Stanger:
    All changes in weight of all balls tested from Pats were beyond range of changes related to ideal gas law. League did good job in handling balls

  30. Randy says:

    getterdone
    Agreed, we almost never run the ball enough, but that doesn’t change the issues Tanny has. Not running the ball makes life harder for the OL too but almost nobody throws them that excuse lifeline. They’re still expected to get their jobs done anyway…which they struggled with last night at times. They’re to blame for that embarrassment last night too.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Many here say all the time running the ball helps the OL get their feet moving forward and not on their heels all the time. It was one of the first things Campbell said too. Yet we go right back to abandoning the run after how well it worked the last two games. The defense forced the Pats to punt a few times at 9-0, no reason to abandon anything but of course the wizard Lazor thought different.

    • getterdone says:

      I have mentioned more than once that you can’t leave an OL on its heels too long. Got to get them moving forward hitting somebody. That gains them confidence, and leverage over the Dl that they’re punching in the mouth.

      All QB’s have issues when the OL is pushed back and when plays break down. You even saw it with Brady. But we didn’t get that type of pressure on him enough because of better play calling to get him out of that trouble more often than not, unlike with Tanny & our offense.

  31. Randy says:

    Ok, enough negativity. It’s one loss no matter how ugly it was. Another game on Sunday. Let’s see how Dan Campbell and the team respond. I’ll be watching and rooting for a win like always. Catch ya later fellas. My time online is done.

    Explains why Kraft gave in so easily. Still doesn’t peg Brady though. He had to know, but thats a hard one to prove without a snitch

    correct me if i am wrong but wasnt he ‘punished’ for is lack of cooperation and not deflating the balls. not that any of it matters, the league isnt going to do anything about it. they are going to go undefeated and win a sb and cheaty retires and never faces punishment.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Teams fines and draft picks (2016 1st rd pick & 2017 4th rd pick) was the punishment.

    • stangerx says:

      Lack of cooperation was thrown in there (and he didn’t) but they still in court went with part of the deflate conspiracy. Not sure why refusing to hand over the texts (which I thought worth two games right there) didn’t play in more.

  34. Try Pod says:

    Randy,
    It’s been said ad nauseam: Tanne may not be the only reason we lose a game, but he’ll likely never be the only reason we won one, either.

  35. finfanrob says:

    Not sure why refusing to hand over the texts (which I thought worth two games right there) didn’t play in more.

    stanger, that is simple, it was never a plan to just suspend him. the nfl went to the absurd cause they knew the courts would toss it. the never had any plans for him to miss a game.

    why i just hate him so much, i would so love to see someone cheap shot him knocking him out of football for life. the whole organization thinks they are above the rules. they prove it over and over. they could not have been more blunt then the first game of the year, they fucked with the radios. they have no fear of the league.

    they appealed just last monday. hmmmm 6 games into the season and they appealed, wonder why they waited so long. and at 6-0. so what, they suspend him for the last two games when they are 14-0

    • stangerx says:

  38. finfanrob says:

    stanger,

    i said it from the start, he is not going to be suspended. or if anything he wont miss any games of importance. maybe they will suspend him for their bye week of the playoffs. i dont know how much more clear it needs to be for everyone to see how the cheats get away with everything

  39. finfanrob says:

    lmao, watching the nfl network. well i am not, my mom put it on. and every time one of her fantasy players comes on in some highlight she is bitching about him calling him names for not producing.

    Well, I see that Bazooka Joe’s Dolphins are back from their vacation. Just in time to slog their way to 8-8. I’d say that I hope we tank to get a decent draft pick, but we’d only use it on a fragile guy with several lingering injuries …lol

  60. manitobafinfan says:

    To add to Piggies analysis:

    1st and 10 at MIA 18
    (6:04 – 3rd) (Shotgun) R.Tannehill pass short right to L.Miller to MIA 22 for 4 yards (M.Butler)

    This play was within one inch of being 78 yd TD.. defender just barely got enough to knock Miller of stride, in fact i thought he was ging to right himself but he fell down..there was NO ONE left on that side of the field

    2nd and 6 at MIA 22
    (5:22 – 3rd) (Shotgun) PENALTY on MIA-J.Landry, False Start, 5 yards, enforced at MIA 22 – No Play
    2nd and 11 at MIA 17
    (4:58 – 3rd) R.Tannehill pass short right to J.Landry pushed ob at MIA 35 for 18 yards (M.Butler) [R.Ninkovich]
    1st and 10 at MIA 35
    (4:22 – 3rd) (Shotgun) R.Tannehill pass short right to R.Matthews pushed ob at MIA 42 for 7 yards (M.Butler)

    2nd and 3 at MIA 42
    (3:53 – 3rd) L.Miller up the middle to MIA 44 for 2 yards (G.Grissom; D.Easleyn
    There was a 4-6 yd wide hole to. Tanny’s left , that he would have easily been able to run through for the first down…

    3rd and 1 at MIA 44
    (3:09 – 3rd) L.Miller right guard to MIA 42 for -2 yards (S.Siliga)
    4th and 3 at MIA 42
    (2:25 – 3rd) M.Darr punts 58 yards to end zone, Center-J.Denney, Touchback

    The 3rd and 1 run was fatal
    That run from the shotgun was also fucking stupid

    after we punted
    we forced them to punt – so still alive and only down 22-7

    But then there was INT at some point later (and people on twitter said that there was PI on that play FWIW

    oh yeah there was… db totally knocked (Stills ??) on his ass then came back to ball

    then the Patriots take INT and score TD
    Game over at that point 29-7
    yep that was it…..

  61. manitobafinfan says:

    on the above mentioned Miller run on 2nd and 3, i do not know how Ryan could not have seen the hole… it seems like he does not have the blessing of coaches( or his own confidence) to change the play at LOS

    Been a great trip. Fly home timorrow. Will not miss the Boston sports guys. What a bunch of pompous arrogant ass wipes. To paraphrase” No one playing the Patriots has a chance we are gonna go undefeated again”

    OK I watched the game from about 1/2 through the 2nd quarter to the end. My main question is why did I bother staying with it? I was expecting to see a totally deifferent game from the first 4 games of total crap and pussification. Result I told my wife this is the same shit as BJ’s team was serving up. I sit here shaking my head at Lazor’s non offence. It was bloody offensive to me to have to watch it. WRs are paid millions to catch the damn ball. Stills is wide open, ball is right where it was meant to be and he just drops it. No excuses. Matthews the same thing, these blokes are supposed to be playmakers,huh what a joke. Cameron goes up against 2 defenders gets the ball right into his hands and DROPS THE FREAKIN THING. Lamar Miller gets to the edge passes the defender and falls over, Shortly after he falls over at the LOS. Hasn’t he got the proper cleats on or something. OL don’t get me started on those weak bastards, memo to Hickey find some proper OL next F/A for christ’s sake. Tanny pull your bloody finger out and bloody well audile when idiot Lazor wants calls run from the shotgun on 3&1. Jeezus I’m still roperable. That is why we lost this game, inept on the O. This isn’t a functional O at all. If I’m Dan Campbell Lazor gets fired today and replaced by Saunders or at least Lazor get stripped of the play calling duties. Freakin idiot bastard he is! Dan make them watch the film and then push them in practise until they all puke their guts out.

    one full day has passed and I still feel like shit from thursday night 😦

      Now you know why the cheats have owned the division for the last 15 yrs. The rest of the division gets close, then the cheats pull some other BS to gain an advantage, causing the players to feel how you do now, then they fall back and lose any momentum they had.

    Something isn’t right here, so the cheats have a great season after spygate, now are doing the same after deflategate. I don’t know what they’re doing, but something isn’t on the level.

    The ESPN report a couple of months ago that talked about the cheating also talked about a previous FO of the cheats say that the spying wasn’t even the biggest advantage they were getting (from cheating). I wonder what else they’re doing.

    On Thursday Cameron wasn’t used much and we didn’t throw deep more than a couple of times, even though they crowded the line, but when we did try to go deep to Cameron they seemed to be expecting it, how?

    Omar said this offseason there’s something funny happening in Foxboro in the 2nd halves of our games. He mentioned how every time it was close in the first half the cheats would strangely turn it around in the 2nd half.

    I think Kraft has an idea something’s going on, but I don’t really think he knows either. I used to hate him, but I now believe he isn’t a player in this nor does he know what’s going on.

    The other owners know something is going on too, that’s why Deflategate is starting to get wings again. The lowering of PSI by 2 PSI of a football isn’t going to change the outcome of any game, I think we all know that, so the original 4 game suspension has nothing to do with PSI, but other things the cheats have done or are still doing.

      they were the better team on thursday. They out played and out coached us.

      • steveccnv says:

        I agree with that and mentioned yesterday we just aren’t good enough. When the game was close early though something just wasn’t right with how things played out. Sure there was some lousy play calling, but it’s only lousy when it doesn’t work and I think a lot of what was called should’ve worked, but didn’t, as if the cheats knew what was coming. It had an eerie feel to it like it was 2003 (I believe, the year in between the cheats 3 SB wins in 4 yrs that they lost) again the game we were up 11 with just a couple of minutes left. Feidler was the QB and we had the ball inside our 10 with 2 minutes left, the cheats crowded the line then backed off into pass coverage, as if they knew we weren’t going to run.

      • Tim Knight says:

        I think we sometimes out coach ourselves, especially on offense.

  73. steveccnv says:

    uwantwat, all those plays you mentioned pissed me off while I was watching the game too. I was at a busy casino in the sports book watching. When Miller tripped over his own feet, one play after he fell down when running outside and was tripped by someone touching his shoelace, I blurted out Jesus Christ, and people (watching several different events, NBA, college FB, horseracing) looked at me like WTF, which is exactly what I was thinking about Miller WTF.

  74. steveccnv says:

    How is it that they changed the 5 yrd chuck rule, because of how the cheats manhandled the Colts receivers in the championship game several yrs ago, but don’t make the cheats live by the new enforcement of the rule? Seattle has gotten away with this the past few yrs too.

    • steveccnv says:

      The Giants are idiots for paying him $14.8. I know there’s lots of incentives, but I find it hard to believe he can be anything close to the player he was. How is he going to hold on to a QB or someone with the ball?

    At this point the Giants will take just getting to the QB, they’ll worry about tackling later.
