NFL Week 3 – Game 2, MIA vs NYJ

The Dolphins travel to New Jersey to take on their hated rivals the New York Jets this Sunday.  The Jets, already 0-2, losing to the Bills in Week 1, and then last week, losing to the Raiders, in what was a more competitive game than I ever expected, at least in the 1st half.  2 teams that appear to be going in different directions.  The NY Jets seem to be working their way to the top of the draft board, in order to secure the chance to get themselves a franchise QB, while the Dolphins, who were in the playoffs last season at 10-6, look to get back to the playoffs, and build on last season’s success.

It has been a wacky few days for the Miami Dolphins.  Starting OLB Lawrence Timmons went missing before the game Sunday, which forced the Dolphins to move rookie OLB Chase Daniels in to the starting lineup.  Daniels barely played, seeing only 13 total snaps, as the Dolphins defense was in the nickel most of the game against the Chargers.  As of yesterday, the Dolphins have suspended Lawrence Timmons indefinitely, but apparently, the max allowable suspension according to the league is 4 weeks.  In the meantime, the Dolphins continue to surge forward, acquiring former 2015 1st RD pick LB Stephone Anthony from the Saints in exchange for a 2018 5th RD draft pick.  Anthony did not play either of the first 2 games with New Orleans as he’s dealing with a high ankle sprain that he hasn’t fully recovered from.

The thing that I admire about our front office is that they haven’t panicked, they have a setback, and they address it in a responsible manner.  We lost Ryan Tannehill to injury, they quickly formed a plan, and brought in QB Jay Cutler, out of retirement, to be our starting QB.  No hesitation, and no going off the deep end.  Cutler is under contract for this year, and then they can see what happens, and work it from there.  Now we lost our starting LB, and they once again acted quickly, and brought in another player, a player with an awesome physical skillset, but also a player that has struggled with the mental portion of the game, but is still on his rookie contract.  Whether Anthony is physically ready to play now, none of us know.  How long it will take him to mentally be ready to play for us, again, we don’t know.  The point is, we’re not giving up on this season, and I like seeing that.

Alright, let’s get back to this weeks game, against the New York Jets.  The Jets still have some impressive pieces on defense even after jettisoning one of their stars,  DL Sheldon Richardson.  The 3-4 front is still formidable, with DE’s Leonard Williams and Muhammad Wilkerson bookending NT Steve McLendon.  Although they cut David Harris, they still have some talent in their LB corps, with Josh Martin, Darron Lee, Demario Davis and Jordan Jenkins.  They also have 2 capable corners in Buster Skrine and Morris Claiborne, and of course, the 2 rookie safeties that were both drafted high by the Jets, SS Jamal Adams 1st RD (6th overall, and Marcus Maye, 2nd RD (39th overall).  There is definitely some good young talent on this defense, but on the other side of the ball, it is pretty ugly.

Josh McCown is the starting QB at the moment, and while he’s relatively competent, he’s a journeyman QB who has had limited success in the NFL, his best campaign was in 2013 where he took over for an injured Jay Cutler (yeah, THAT Jay Cutler), and posted a 3-2 record with 13 TD’s and only 1 INT.  Since then, with TB, CLE , and now the NYJ, he’s thrown 31 TD’s and 27 INT’s,  His backfield of Matt Forte and Bilal Powell was pretty good last year, but Forte is now 31, and we know most RB’s tend to really fall off once they reach 30, so I don’t expect all that much trouble from Matt Forte.  Bilal Powell is a very good receiver out of the backfield, and has burned us on numerous occasions.  Both backs have good hands, but Powell has the speed to beat LB’s around the edge and over the middle.  At widout, the Jets have WR Robbie Anderson (Who?) and newly acquired former Seahawks veteran WR Jermaine Kearse.  Kearse has quickly become one of McCown’s favorite targets, and rightfully so.  Kearse has the only 2 receiving TD’s for the Jets.

It will be interesting to see who defends Devante Parker, is it the 5’9″ Buster Skrine, or the 5’11” Morris Claiborne?  Either one will have his hands full with Parker, who has shown that he wants every pass thrown in his vicinity, and will get it!  I expect a similar approach to the game as last week, run the ball as much as we can as long as we’re having success, but in the passing game, we might just try to exploit the young safeties and smaller CB’s deep, and take a few more shots than we did last week.  I also expect Julius Thomas to get a little more involved in the game this week.  I’m thinking we’ll get a good lead, and then cruise in this one.

I’m going MIA 30 – NYJ 13

Go DOLPHINS! Zero in!

    Stanger – I think Cutler will play at a discount and RT would re-structure. RT loses all leverage if Cutler plays well. Of course it would take a deep trip into the play-offs. If RT wouldn’t re-structure, then they trade him.

  2. pheloniusphish says:

    In regards to Lou, he brought it on himself by continuing to troll. People here, you and a some others, have made it a point to try and engage him in a normal dialogue, but he has not responded in a positive manner. Rather he continues to be confrontational and dismissive. His behavior is no better than Home’s, except that he is not as prolific a poster.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      I don’t know…
      I think he’s much different than Home. I don’t see what you are seeing. Look, when it comes down to it, I respect anyone’s right to judge some one or confront them as they see fit.

      I just don’t see it like some of you. Lou was posting here for years and I generally have enjoyed his posts – particularly about college prospects

    There is no organized lynch mob. It’s just me, who’s tired of seeing posts that he makes like “I don’t read the comments here” and other things he says, along with of course the fact that he called us a bunch of douchebags. It doesn’t bother you, carry on sir, it bothers me, so I said something. I feel like most of his behavior here is trolling, if not all of it. He’s just looking to get a rise. Personally, if he doesn’t come back, I’m fine with that too. That’s just how I feel.

    I think Tannehill is the QB next year, but a very good season from Cutler may jeopardize that.
    ——————————————-
    Id go as far as saying a solid season from Cutler jeopardizes it, if Cutler doesn’t ask for the moon and stars as far as a new contract. The best bet Tanny has to remain on this team is hope Cutler has a really up and down year but we still end up 8-8 and he is asking too much as far as a contract extension. Then you have a bad situation for continuity reasons if you dont keep Tanny.

    We wouldn’t be in a good position to draft a guy who is one of top choices, likely (thought there are several very good prospects this next year, most of them arent “great”). We couldnt afford, with Landry’s contract negotiations, to pay Cutler big money, especially with his past inconsistency. So keeping Tanny, and hopefully even getting him to re-negotiate his contract some, would make the most sense.

    If Cutler, however, agrees to extend for a couple of years at 10per, or if we do poor enough to be considered a rebuild team with a good draft position, and Tanny sticks to the contract he has. It might be a decision they have to really think about making just for the health of the team both financially and to give us a fresh start.

    Lets not forget the NFL is about what have you done for me recently and that its a business. What Tanny is doing right now is adding to the worry that he has lost his momentum in improving his ability as a QB. You can blame the past for why he isnt there yet, but it doesnt change the fact that he will be 30, going into 7th year and not someone who was firmly established himself. This was supposed to be the year, Tanny was sealing his place as our starter. This was absolutely the worst time he could have had a season ending injury as he was poised to make believers out of everyone, and now people are just settling into the idea that someone else can run this offense.

    Again, like i tried to say the other day, im not pulling for him to be ousted and im not clamoring for him to stay, im just stating the fact of the matter, and there are several ways this season can play out and not many of them are beneficial to Tanny without Tanny sweetens his side financially and Cutler stops winning people over to him as our QB.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      I’m blaming you if there is another page turn today!

      • Mike E. says:

        That’s fair D, I almost said solid season myself, but he’s 34, so solid might not cut it. Then again, Tannehill will be 30, so . . . .

    • Ken says:

      There was a reason why Cutler was out of the league and Tannehill was a starting QB. Don’t just assume Cutler is anything more than a good interim answer to a problem. It is certainly possible that Cutler can win the job but I think it is far from a certainty

  6. Mike E. says:

    Stanger

    Furthermore, between you and me, sometimes you have to own up to the things you say or do. You have to be a man, and apologize if you do something. There are ramifications from your actions. Sure, we’re all “middle aged” (Except for me, I’m thousands of years old), but so what, does that mean you’re not responsible for your actions?. He never once apologized, then shows up here with his annoying troll behavior. If he doesn’t read the comments or articles on here, then he’s strictly coming here to be heard, and I don’t want to listen to his nonsense.

    Is that clear enough? lol

    • Phindog says:

      Ohh the Old Wise Condouches Speaks the truth..

    • stangerx says:

      Am sure that when he said we were all a bunch of douchebags he was looking for a pic of me first…..but couldn’t care less either. Would be different if had had a beer with him. He’s a good poster and interesting at times. Why should I care about more?

      People work in different ways. Seems him coming back is a sign he still cares, even if understand why all the attacks might make him react back. How about just ask how he is doing?

  7. Ken says:

    I don’t really care about what Lou says. I just find it funny he is coming on her acting so smart because he said the Dolphins were scouting LBs to trade for. Well no shit anyone looking at our roster could have figured that out. What was stupid is saying we were going to trade Landry to get one

    • The Flying Pig says:

      On twitter he specifically predicted the Dolphins trading for Anthony a long time ago

      • Ken says:

        I don’t really do Twitter. It doesn’t change what I said. If I spent my day scouring NFL for LBs that were on the bubble with their current team I could have come up with a realistic list of trade candidates too. What was silly was saying we were going to trade Landry to do it

  8. Jahndoh30 says:

    A couple of things I’ve heard on NFL radio this week:

    Interview with HC of Chargers: They are not going to fire the kicker. His take was that he’s only struggled in one of those two games (against us) and that there was a breakdown that led to the block rather than a low kick.

    Interview with someone who used to work for the Saints (can’t remember who, but he seemed very knowledgeable): He LOVES Anthony, says he’s an incredible team mate and person, and that his struggles started when they tried to move him to the will. He’s a very talented Mike (in this guys opinion), but probably just not cut out to be a Will….

  9. The Flying Pig says:

    LOL @ Tim’s cookie pic

  10. Tim Knight says:

    Stanger, this was Burke’s comments, there is other stuff about his history and comments from Anthony himself.

    “My thought with him is really just to try to put him in one spot and let him learn. It’s hard anytime coming into a new system in the middle of a season,” Burke said. “[We’re in] the process of getting a feel for what he can handle and where his best fit is. And then kind of once – probably by the end of this week – we get a feel of what we think his best role is, then put him in there, throw him in the deep end.”

    I also found if you clear your cache you no longer get those no access limits. The SS is tracking how many times you’ve been there based on that.

    • stangerx says:

      Sounds like kid gloves for Anthony….but that makes sense. And thanks for the SS advice, but keep in mind I have a Lauderdale ISP. Makes a difference. Also get in trouble with the Herald, but not with the PBP…….maybe am far enough away.

    I just think some are giving him a hard time bc they feel like it was directed at them. But it ought to be out of their system by now.

    How are you doing?

  16. Tim Knight says:

    I heard that we might deal Parker too. Last week our FO learned that teams who covet Parker only watch the 2nd half of our games so that’s why we started to showcase Parker in the 2nd half. It’s science. 😉

  20. D says:

    I dont really think the Anthony thing was a big surprise or that it was something that Lou predicted as much as he was the first person to jump on the bandwagon of us looking into trading for him when the Saints were looking to unload him in the PS. There were rumors of us being in contact with the Saints about him before that even, so this has been a back and forth with them on the cost of the trade since before the draft. Its something that finally came to fruition because the right circumstance and the right price finally got negotiated. The signs it was possible had been there for a while. The connections to the team, and specifically to the LB unit have been there since Gase was our coach.

    It was more about trading Landry when it started. Now he’s not mentioning that part when he’s trying to point out his powers of prediction. That’s how it seems to me anyway.

  36. ocalarob says:

    Well from this douchebags perception of Tannehill vs Cutler it seems Cutler has a way better peripheral vision, pocket presence and it seems he is way more accurate with the deep ball.

    All this should lead to success, we shall see.

    and no way we keep them both

    • Ken says:

      Tannehill’s deep ball accuracy was among the best in the league last year. It was one of the reasons that Stills was among league leaders in YPC

      • ocalarob says:

        Through his career he has always struggled with the deep ball, his stats last year may have had more to do with the quantity of deep balls he threw, and the whispering of Gase.

      • ocalarob says:

        how about the way he stands tall in the pocket unaware of the numerous grizzlys ready to pounce on him?

  37. pheloniusphish says:

    Everybody disagrees with me. You are a the biggest douchebags in the inter-universe. I quit. Unless I don’t.

  38. naplesfan2010 says:

    Allen was one of only three rookie free agents in the entire NFL to start an opener this season, along with Colts center Deyshawn Bond and Giants fullback Shane Smith.

  39. naplesfan2010 says:

    A little more than five months after joining the Dolphins, Allen accomplished a rare feat when he started against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday. He became the first rookie free agent to start a Dolphins opener in 47 years — since linebacker Doug Swift did it in 1970.

  41. naplesfan2010 says:

    I feel foolish for seeming so gung-ho, but i just love how these coaches we have now handle things (mostly).
    Instead of freaking out and/or ripping Timmons, Gase says, “I need to know more before I comment.” Ominous but fair.

    Then he says he has turned the Timmons matter over to the front office. I’ve got stuff to do, work with the guys who are here,” Again sending a message, not ranting.

    These are rough quotes from memory.

  42. pheloniusphish says:

    Poetry is so dull
    Like Lou’s football acumen

    Then Burke says about Chase Allen:
    “I’ve been all over him and been in his ear and killing him and then I walked passed him — I was all amped up on game day — on stretch line, I walked past Chase, and he’s kneeling down, stretching or whatever and I grabbed him by the shirt, by the jersey, and I was like, this is why I’ve been MF’ing you all year and this is why you’re here,” Burke said. “I probably said some other stuff I can’t say live here. (laughter) I yelled at him for about two minutes, and he looks at me and he goes, ‘OK, Coach.’ I mean literally that was it. (laughter) I was like, ‘All right, we’re good.’

    “I think he only played like 10 snaps or something. He had four tackles. I mean, he was great. He didn’t bat an eye. Literally, that’s kind of how he was, just, ‘All right, coach. I’m good,’ and kind of handled my manic attitude. So he was great. He did a good job and we feel comfortable playing him.”

    I love coaching like that.

  44. naplesfan2010 says:

    The jests now have 4 TEs on the injury report.

  45. sb7mvp says:

    Let’s not get carried away with the Cutlery praise. He did alright on Sunday and played a game that Tannehill would have been killed for, yet somehow he’s going to be our franchise QB while sending Tannehill packing.

  47. wyoming85 says:

    Changing of the guards: Head Coach Adam Gase said Friday he was anticipating Anthony Steenand Jesse Davis again rotating at left guard against the New York Jets. Steen started against the Los Angeles Chargers last Sunday and played 46 snaps, while Davis got 22 snaps. “Nobody has really separated themselves,” Gase said. “Both those guys did a good job last week and played hard. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with us playing two guys.”

      I noticed that in the game. I agree nothing wrong with playing two. Plenty of teams rotate some guys based on their situation.

  48. Tim Knight says:

    One thing I’m really liking is the majority of fans specifically here really like Gase. That has not always been the case with our HCs as we all know. 🙂

    • Mike E. says:

      I always loved Philbin

      • Tim Knight says:

        LOL, I admit to being patient with him and liked him early on. But the way the team looked at the start of the 2015 season it was obvious he lost them and they were not where they should be. Ross gave him every chance to succeed.

        I remember when we announced Tannehill’s contract extension and they had that presser. Do you remember how uninvolved Philbin was just sitting at the table and Tannenbaum doing most of the talking? The HC should be very much involved in that. The writing was already on the wall.

  53. herdfan says:

    Wyoming, good article about Landry. I’ve read similar things about him. He’s the guy that gets them going when they’re flat, fires them up. I’ve said it before. He is more than the number of TDs he has in a season. That’s why you don’t trade him.

    • steveccnv says:

      I agree, but it’s going to be tough giving him in excess of $12M.

    • Tim Knight says:

      That’s true. Last week’s game showed how valuable he can be. 13-78 doesn’t look great in YPCA for a WR but when you mix it with Ajayi’s 28-122 on the ground and 6 1st downs each, then look at the TOP we had, that’s what these two can do to teams. 41 touches for 200 yards between them. It’s grinding.

  54. steveccnv says:

    We should open it up this week and give others some carries. No reason to get Ajayi burned out.

  55. steveccnv says:

    In years when we sucked teams would run the ball on us, and were very careful with the ball. I wouldn’t be surprised if that was the first half game plan again.

    • Tim Knight says:

      I wouldn’t be surprised if we blitzed the Jets early and often. Blitz the run on the way to the QB. Make McCown uncomfortable and gun shy right out of the box.

  56. Rockphin says:

    We don’t know what Landry wants or what he will get. I remember last year there was no way we were going to keep Stills when he hit FA….

  57. Tim Knight says:

    Phish, Landry really is a Swiss Army Knife. He’s a unique player. He’ll be 25 in November. I’m pretty sure he can still improve on his game. 🙂

    He’s a guy you can draw up some unique plays for and he can be productive. Not everyone can do that.

  58. Tim Knight says:

    steveccnv says:
    September 22, 2017 at 10:01 pm
    $12-14M for Stills, I don’t think he was ever in that ballpark.

    Yeah that’s what was being talked about. They were comparing it to T.Y. Hilton’s deal at 5 years for $65M. I never thought Stills was worth that. His body of work isn’t in that league. I really think Landry is in the same league as Stills’ contract. He’s more possession and versatile but he can’t beat a defense over the top like Stills can. So there is some give and take. But it’s not up to me. LOL

  59. Brian in NY says:

    I have this nagging feeling that this game against the Jets is going to be closer than we want it to be.

  60. ocalarob says:

    Remember that game where we killed them in the first half, up very big and the came back and beat us?

  61. stangerx says:

    We are six point favorites against the Yets, but then the Chargers were 4.5 favorites against us. Still some football to be played.

  62. herdfan says:

    Has the world ended yet?

  63. Tim Knight says:

    The only thing is I don’t think the Jets have the personnel to make that kind of a come back this season. We should win this game by at least two scores but we all know how this rivalry goes.

  64. CavalierKong says:

    Just don’t turn the ball over.

    • stangerx says:

      Yeah I think our game plan is going to be safe as safe can be…..what good teams and guys like Gase do in such situations.

      • CavalierKong says:

        The Jest are so bad, as long as we protect the ball and don’t give them extra possessions and/or short fields, we should win this handily.

      • stangerx says:

        Yeah — which makes me an idiot for starting Cutler in fantasy……but still gonna do it. 🙂

      • CavalierKong says:

        It wouldn’t surprise me if Cutler has a pretty big game.

      • stangerx says:

        Don’t think you can take the long ball out of the Cutler dog no matter who we face. If nothing else, Jay can stretch the field.

  65. Mike E. says:

      That’s really why i want to make it, on my bucket list. besides that i have to beat stanger in pool. i have a pool table in my home that i haven’t used in years, you can bet i will be dusting that off to practice up.

  66. herdfan says:

    I think something may have happened to Howie’s computer again. He’s not been on here getting the scores. Should we start a list without him?

  67. Tim Knight says:

    Dave Wannstedt was the HC for us when “The Miracle at the Meadowlands” happened. Fiedler was our QB and Testeverde was the Jets QB.

  68. ocalarob says:

    I have a REMAX Charity golf tournament in the villages OCT 20 that i have to make, I plan to go to Vero to stay with a friend after that and head down Saturday, i don’t want to get a room until i know for sure i can make it, if there are none available i may find a friend to stay with down there for Saturday night, I have plenty of friends down there however i prefer to get a room, what’s the name of that hotel?

  69. ocalarob says:

    I just hope Howie is all right.

  70. ocalarob says:

    Knicks just traded Anthony to the Thunder

  71. Tim Knight says:

    Actually is was called “The Monday Night Miracle”. “Miracle at the New Meadowlands” was the Csonka fumble when he was with the Giants that Herm Edwards (Eagles) recovered for a TD.

    Steve, it was Testeverde. He completed like 19-20 in the 4th quarter.

  72. ocalarob says:

    no roome available LA Quinta??

  73. Tim Knight says:

    ESPN reported the Knicks will acquire Enes Kanter, Doug McDermott and a 2018 second-round draft pick for from the Thunder for Anthony.

  74. Tim Knight says:

    Our defense in “The Monday Night Miracle” game had a lot of good players on it including Timbo, JT, Zach, Pat and Sam.

  75. herdfan says:

    Howie, I hope you’re doing fine and just are busy or having computer issues. He can take this over if/when he gets back on.

    If anyone has posted a score this week, I’m not going back to look for it. Please reply to this post with your score prediction. I’ll do a couple of updates and add the scores if I see any in the comments for you folks that can’t follow directions. 😉

    Howie’s List
    CavalierKong 27-16 MIA
    Herdfan 33-13 MIA

  76. Tim Knight says:

    This will be the 103rd game we’ve played against the Jets. They lead the series 53-48-1.

  77. herdfan says:

    I knew it wasn’t Chad P in the Monday Night Miracle game.

    I didn’t see that game as it happened, but I did see it replayed on NFLN after I had become a Dolphin’s fan. It was on, I thought, ok I’ll watch. I had no idea!!!!!! It was so much fun…..until it wasn’t. I remember saying…Why didn’t anyone warn me about this?????

  78. Tim Knight says:

    MIA 38 – NYJ 13

  79. Tim Knight says:

    Oh sorry.

  80. D says:

    It’s not Bout the value of a player compared to another player, it’s the value of that player for your team vs the value of that play to another. The question is are there teams out there who value what he brings at 12 and if there may be, you have to determine if you are also on e of those teams. If so, it doesn’t matter if he is a possession receiver, alpha, etc. He will be worth that. Think of how many times he moves the chains, how many time he turns a 0 yard pass into a 10+ gain, how many y times he takes a short slant to the house. I don’t think you replace Landry with any possession receiver. I’d put him more on the Larry Fitz kinda level, because he is schemed for by other teams, he makes the tough catches, he gets you yac, same as Fitz

    • Tim Knight says:

      All valid points. I posted up the board why I think Landry is unique and also how he and Ajayi can make us a very good TOP team as well as make some explosive plays. Then with Stills and Parker on the outside we have the personnel to be very hard to defend. Thomas could start to get more opportunities as well.

      Let’s not get carried way.

  81. stangerx says:

    Almost makes you feel sorry for the dude from green nation…..here are his five bold predictions:
    ———–
    Two Jets running backs will catch a TD.
    The Jets will hold Jay Ajayi to under 50 yards.
    The Dolphins offense will be held to under 300 yards and 15 points.
    The Jets will sack Cutler 6 times.
    A Jets TE catches a touchdown.
    ———–
    But yet at the end reality still creeps in: “Final Score: Jets 21, Dolphins 30”

    • Tim Knight says:

      Our front 7 might give them a really difficult time. They’re not very good on the OL to begin with and they have some injuries, TE as well. I’d be disappointed if the Jets scored very much. I really feel like this is a we should kill them game. I’m not sure the Jets players are even playing up to their potential. They might lack confidence going in and that’s not good for any team. But this rivalry has always been unpredictable. That’s a real thing. LOL

    My wife talked to the lady where we stay in Hollywood Beach yesterday and we are good to go there. Big relief.

    Tim,
    The boardwalk is awesome. Everything you need is just a stroll down the beach. Great food and music…. And many places to kick back and enjoy the beverage of your choice.. Oh and you are on the beach so there is that. 😎

  85. rgs322 says:

    Anyone else watching Penn St/Iowa game. …Really enjoying this matchup. Barkley is a beast and the best player I’ve watched this season. Also, love this Josey Jewell guy from Iowa. …Blue collar kind of LB.

  86. D says:

    Man shit is really hitting the fans after that Trump tweet for Goddell to end the kneeling for the anthem. I mean pretty much anything he says gets attacked, but he brings a lot of it on himself. There was no need for him to get involved with that.

    • wyoming85 says:

      They have HS teams kneeling for the anthem now?
      I can’t even comprehend that!
      All I wold see is my Dad dragging me off the field! I wouldn’t have played a down in that game!!!!!!!

      • D says:

        Most people aren’t really even sure why they are doing it. If you ask 10 people why they are doing it you will get 5 of the answers be different from any of the others and the other 5 will be exactly the same as if they were plagurized. There are some I’m sure are doing the right thing, some that are doing it out of spite, and some that are just jumping on a bandwagon. You know which are which by seeing what they do as a follow-up.

  87. son of a son of a shula says:

    Game day bitches, stand the fuck up!

  88. Tim Knight says:

    To me the flag, the national anthem or the pledge doesn’t stand for social injustice. It’s just another action that creates a divide but has no substance.

    Go Phins!!!!!

  89. pheloniusphish says:

    Well that should settle the talk about trading RT.
