    There will be good QB’s all over the first 2 rounds of the draft!
    Not that I’m saying we need one!!!!!
    But one will be there!

    • Ken says:

      It is going to be a good year for QBs. If we have a high pick it may be too good to pass up but I don’t know how that sits with the vets who want to win now

  2. stangerx says:

    “I’m one of the leaders of the offense and right now it’s unacceptable the way our offense is playing. The defense is doing a great job. When our defense is playing like that you’ve got to go out there and make plays and help those guys out.”

    — Mike Pouncey

  3. D says:

    This is easily the craziest start to a season across all teams in the NFL I think I have ever seen. There is only one undefeated team left and it’s week 4 and JC has to play a hot Redskins team Monday.

  4. rgs322 says:

    I know everyone talks about Darnold, but I really like Rosen. He is tough and is putting up very good numbers with no o-line and not much in receivers. …Both will probably go in the top 5 though.

    • D says:

      Risen seems more refined, a little less wow factor. I like Luke Faulk a lot.

      The Fitzgerald kid at Mississippi State is much better than the last two games have made him look. He is all they have in offense so it’s hard for him to get anything going since all a team has to do is shut him down. He needs to stay at State another year imo.

      There are so many pretty good candidates and just a couple of possible start right away that we could get a guy in the third even and it be a possible starter in a year. We have to get someone, because it’s only a possibility that if Tanny comes back that he doesn’t have some regression from his year off.

  5. Tim Knight says:

    D, not sure what the big issue is with McCain. It’s not like he’s being torched for TDs. He’s doing his job and it’s not easy inside with what teams run. He actually helps on plays he had nothing to do with making tackles. We’re not giving up a lot of points. The offense is doing nothing to support the defense. Nothing!!! 6 points (TD and missed XPT at the end of the game) in the last 8 quarters. It can’t be much worse.

    The defense isn’t great but they’re sound. The offense is so bad I can’t even focus on defense now.

    • D says:

      This is the first time the secondary has looked good and he was the weak link there. That tackle they credited for was pure luck that kamara lost his footing on the wet field. He had penalties against him that hurt us, he missed some coverages on kamara that cost us and he has always been a weakness in the secondary he us topped out and with most teams working the slot, he just doesn’t give us the quality we need there.

      • Tim Knight says:

        McCain was all over the place and plays STs. Lead the team in tackles with 7 and sacrificed his body on that shot he took cutting a guy down. He also had an impact on the missed FG in LA. He’s an unfair whipping boy in my eyes. I’m not worried about him or the defense the way it’s constructed.

        We punted 6 times, lost the TOP battle by almost 10 minutes – dominated in the 2nd half, and scored 0 points. Bobby McCain is not the problem.

  6. 81Howie says:

    Thanks everyone,
    I fell better now so I am shooting for a comback this week
    Who the hell are we playing 🙂

  7. D says:

    Our OL looks average. A lot if teams have worse than we have. They aren’t doing great, but they arent looking like a sieve either. All the offensive units need a good tweaking but aren’t just completely awful. We just don’t have anyone helping carry us either. Landry has been that guy for us but even he isn’t doing much this year. He us dropping a ton of passes

    • Mike E. says:

      We look worse than we have in quite some time in the run game. We aren’t giving Ajayi a chance on far too many runs

  8. D says:

    The run defense is sound Tim, pass defense has been weak in first two games. This is the first time we can’t count them as part of the problem.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Points! 17, 20 and 20 with very little support on offense. I’m not worried about the defense and they could get better. Lots of new faces coming down the road.

  9. TOP SECRET says:

    only 3 disrespectful anthem kneelers this week for Miami?……from the crybaby offices of Thomas, Stills and Thomas….how ironic would it be for one or all of them sustain a spinal injury?……think about it……sitting in a wheel chair WISHING they could STAND for the anthem…..oh the irony of it all…….they would get to experience what a soldier feels like after being road side bombed by some fucking terrorist……

    • Mike E. says:

      C’mon man, that’s way over the top. I get it you take exception to it despite the fact they say the protest has nothing to do with the military, but wishing a spinal injury on anyone is disgusting

    • stangerx says:

      Top — think it great that most seem to have gotten over the whole politics after it became an issue before. Just back to football. You watch the game? Now that is something to get mad about.

  10. TOP SECRET says:

    Mike E……yeah,,,they don’t mean DISRESPECT to the military……but they are still disrespecting AFTER being told that their actions are disrespectful…those fucking retards don’t get it…..find another way or venue…….and stop disrespecting our nation’s anthem and flag.

  11. I didnt see anyone protesting the military, but Fox Sports always sells anthem time for advertisements, and don’t normally show the anthem.
    Did Fox diss the military too for making millions of dollars during the anthem instead of standing?
    Love ya brah, but I don’t think anyone is disrespecting the military, or I would call them out for sure.

  12. rgs322 says:

    Speaking of Julius Thomas, what a waste of a pick up that has been. We need to draft a young TE next year.

  13. pheloniusphish says:

    “The D well enough to win. They got tired at the end of the game from being on the field too long but holding a Brees led team to 20 points is not a bad days work.”

    2 three and outs. Can’t stop a screen pass. D is not playing well enough to win.

    • stangerx says:

      Disagree on that one. This D is better than what I thought it would be, not that was hoping for much. Still 6th best in points allowed per game even though the O keeps throwing them out over and over again.

    • Ken says:

      There is definitely room for improvement especially in terms of impact plays such as sacks and take aways but they are keeping the other team out of the end zone. They are definitely not why we lost

    • The Flying Pig says:

      I suspect if our offense would have been better
      Our defense would have looked even worse

  14. Mike E. says:


    Guys like Stills are actually doing something about it. They have met with Tony Dungy and others, and have gone into the inner cities to have meetings with police and community leaders. That’s accomplishing something, not just empty gesture protesting. As far as I’m concerned, they’re just trying to bring awareness to the issue, and as long as they are following up and doing something about it, it’s a good thing. Have you ever been to a football game? Have you not seen drunken a-holes cursing and laughing and totally not paying attention to the anthem? Why is that not disrespecting the military, or the anthem? They’re trying to promote unity, not divisiveness.

  15. Mike E. says:


    I don’t have to assume. It’s just not right even bringing that up. That’s like me saying wouldn’t it be ironic if Top Secret went on to the football field to prevent one of the players from protesting and the player tackled him and Top Secret got a concussion and then got CTE? You know what I mean? It’s just unnecessary.

    • TOP SECRET says:

      funny, I don’t see the irony….TOP SECRET attempts to prevent disrespect to the flag and the anthem but gets fucked up by the disrespectful player/players instead…wow, I guess that’s disrespectful players – 2, TOP SECRET – 0…not a good day for patriotism.

  16. Mike E. says:


    Let’s drop it. It’s not worth discussing at length. Let’s get back to football, although I’d prefer not to talk about our team right now, it’s brutal.

  17. TOP SECRET says:

    Mike E….yes drunken assholes do disrespect the flag and anthem….but they are not endorsed by the league and it’s owners to do so…….and please explain this to poor david……I don’t give a fuck what the players SAY their intentions are……their ACTIONS are disrespectful and offensive, to most of us who have served……PERIOD.

  18. Mike E. says:

  19. I think the Dolphins are tired, mentally and physically. The travel, hurricane, road games, losing the bye, losing Tannehill, it’s just becoming a mountain of adversity, and no bye to rewind and get back on track.
    There are no easy answers at this point, We have to play the cards dealt, and find a way

  20. Tim Knight says:

    Thomas set up 1st and goal at the 4 with a 23 yard gain. We fucked that up by passing on 1st down. Gase, just go with what you have. Run the ball there. Come on man!

    • The Flying Pig says:

      Personally I was okay with the pass on 1st down

      It was just really poorly executed
      Forced even

      • Tim Knight says:

        Run it and you probably score even if not on 1st but 2nd. Impose your will there go big and power run it with a guy who doesn’t go down easy when he’s got some tread. It’s not rocket science. This is the kind of thing that sets teams back. You play tricky instead of physical when it’s there for the taking. I’m really disappointed in Gase the last two weeks. I think he’s a bit lost right now as a play-caller. Too much on his plate.

        Still time to rebound. We have to see it.

      • The Flying Pig says:

        I think Gase has been too cute and trying to establish certain things
        In this case getting Thomas involved
        Last week it felt like we wanted to get Ajayi a big game
        I think the offense is just struggling to find an identity

  21. TOP SECRET says:

    well…I guess I’ve said my piece……you all have a peaceful evening……it wasn’t my attentions to offend anyone.

  22. rgs322 says:

    Rosen seems more refined, a little less wow factor. I like Luke Faulk a lot.

    Yea, Faulk is solid and he protects the ball. Another guy to watch is Thorson from Northwestern. Good kid with a very good arm.

    • Ken says:

      Watched Thorson yesterday vs Wisconsin. The physical skills are all there but he will need time at the next level. I watched him make a horrible play at the end of the game that resulted in a safety that effectively ended the game. He just held the ball when he didn’t have to

  23. Mike E. says:

    Good night Top – Please check your email – Thanks

  24. ocalarob says:

    Even though they may be protesting social injustice it’s time to release the American flag from being a hostage in all this. The military and the flag have nothing to do with these issues it’s just their way of getting attention. It’s bad for the fans, it’s bad for the military and it’s bad for business.
    Time to let it go and find another way to protest.

  25. The Flying Pig says:

    Pouncey is expected to need hip replacements t surgery in the next 5-10 years

    • rgs322 says:

      That sucks.

      With that said, we really need to start looking for a future replacement. There are a few guys we should look at in next year’s draft. …2nd/3rd red prospects. They can always sit a year or be a backup at OG/C.

      • The Flying Pig says:

        I don’t think it’s an immediate need
        And I don’t think it needs a high pick in 18
        But it does look like the clock on his career is ticking
        He might retire soon

    • Ken says:

      He has not looked like he has a couple years ago

      • The Flying Pig says:

        I haven’t really noticed Pouncey to be honest

        Tunsil and Bushrod haven’t really looked good imo

  26. Ken says:

    So far I still think Darnold is the best QB in the draft

  27. The Flying Pig says:

    Fwiw Top you didn’t offend me
    I’m never really offended by anything
    But I’m a little worried with people at each other’s throats after 2 losses in a row
    This blog will be miserable if that happens
    tone and the way we all speak to each other can prevent that
    I have to watch myself as well
    We all have to watch ourselves

    • Dolphins lost, but have our lives drastically changed over it? lol. No
      It sucks, but can’t let it kill off my positive thinking. Sometimes it’s best to just let things go, and look to next week and regroup. First REAL home game of the year might make a differance!

  28. Mike E. says:

    Hunter Henry just made a fantastic TD catch. Sure would be nice to have a good young TE

  29. BoulderPhinfan says:

    The offense looked better at the end of year with Moore than it does this year with cutler

    • Ken says:

      It did but not sure I trust Moore to run an offense for more than a handful of games. I think his limitations will become more obvious. Then again hard to do much worse than what we are currently doing

  30. BoulderPhinfan says:

    Ajayi didn’t have a good game either. 3rd and inches wtf was that. I think drake should get more snaps

  31. BoulderPhinfan says:

    I think the int at the end of the first drive really took a lot out of the offense. I was so bummed. That just was a terrible call on 1st down. Thomas is not that good anymore

  32. BoulderPhinfan says:

    And the penalties killed us. I don’t remember a more undisciplined team. Both offense and defense. Come on Gase

  33. Tim Knight says:

    Gase… please go bread and butter and not all the other weird shit you think about. LOL

    Get back to basics with your best players. What you’re doing now isn’t working. Yes?

  34. ElephantRider says:

    I hate all you douchebags! Phins suck!

    Carry on

  35. ElephantRider says:

    Seems Philbin is back! All the shit he and RT17 got/get, at least they frickin scored.
    And is it against the rules to throw more than 5 yds down the field? Or does every pass have to be at the line of scrimmage!

    Next year when we select Mike Gesicki in the early 2nd round.

    Cam! Who doesn’t love Cam today?

    Oh Cam how I wish
    Luck would leave you for the fish
    How I yearned for thish

  39. mf13ss says:

    Quick-hit observations on Offense…

    1) Our O-Line is pathetic in pass-pro: we’re on track for 48 sacks over 16 games WITH Cutler’s superior pocket-presence.
    2) Our O-Line is pathetic in run-blocking: 3.2 YPC through 3 games with 0 TD runs.
    3) While Cutler’s CMP% is nice (67% through 3 games), his YDS/ATT are WAY down (nearly 2 yards per attempt): WHY are we playing ‘dink-and-dunk’ with his cannon arm?
    4) Ajayi’s 3.8 YPC today are NOT for a lack of trying very hard in front of his fellow Londoners. This O-Line is pathetic and Pouncey isn’t looking good (doubt he’s going to make it through this season, as I’ve predicted).
    5) Kenny Stills is averaging 5 Yds/reception LESS this year (11.2) than his career average (16.6).
    6) Julius Thomas is averaging nearly 2 Yds/reception LESS this year (8.9) than his career average (10.8) and his 2-year average in JAX (9.7).
    7) Jarvis Landry is averaging nearly 4 Yds/reception LESS this year (6.7) than his career average (10.3)
    8) I saw a stat citing that the 3-game Offensive scoring output this year is lesser than ANY 3-game stretch of Joe Philbin’s tenure here… OUCH.
    9) The play-calling is absolutely horrific from Adam Gase… it’s as though Dan Henning has taken over his brain and we even saw the ‘Wildcat’ today (where Cutler took the play off while on the field).

    — I stand by Adam Gase keeping Cutler as the starter into next week, but I’d keep Cutler on a very short leash. What does that mean? If Cutler isn’t the answer after 4 games (1/4 of the season), it’s time to start Matt Moore, JMO.
    — At his current rate of play, Ja’Wuan James won’t be here next year to collect his roughly scheduled $9.3M, after exercising his 5th-year option this past off-season.
    — Jarvis Landry and his agent are not going to be able to capitalize on a new contract at his current production… not Jarvis’ fault, either.
    — Has Adam Gase intentionally ‘dumbed-down’ the Offense to gain Cutler more familiarity with his new teammates in order to avoid early-season turnovers? If so, when do the training wheels come off? It’s time to let Cutler air it out… he looked good in the preseason, IMO.

    • Brian in NY says:

      1) Same old story
      2) Same old story
      3) Same old story
      4) Same old story
      5) Receivers don’t seem to be getting open as much this season. Whether that is due to a lack of chemistry with Cutler, Cutler shitting the bed, the OL woes or all of the above I just don’t know.
      6) He needs to see less playing time and Marquis Gray needs more.
      7) Defenses seem to be handling him well this season.
      8) The offense is the worst I can remember seeing in all of my years watching this team.
      9) Agreed. Stop getting cute and just run the plays we are good at (if any right now). That cute shit only works if the offense is clicking with normal plays.

  40. son of a son of a shula says:

    We should have drafted Deshaun

  41. son of a son of a shula says:

    Cutler is a drag
    Drinking like Jahndoh last night
    Not that good shit though

  42. son of a son of a shula says:

    Suh hasn’t hurt his chances at DPOY but didn’t enhance a case either

  43. son of a son of a shula says:

    Tied with NE in the loss column

  44. Rhino says:

    Had to work a convention for our clinic.. they had an NFL section where they played the games on big screen for all the guys who got ‘dragged’ to the event.
    This section was right behind our booth!!! so I got to see the game after all. Kinda’ wish I had an excuse NOT to see it.
    Matt Moore deserves a shot at this. It can’t get any worse.

  45. D says:

    Lol rivers told the media they asked three questions in a row there they answered the questions in the question the asked him. It’s silly sometimes to hear the questions they ask. Like guaranteed they will ask how do you feel about this loss…. Wtf really lol

  46. CavalierKong says:

    The refs really made our game a shit show. We probably would have scored 6-10 points if it wasn’t for them.

    • D says:

      There were definitely some bad calls

      • CavalierKong says:

        That holding call on Godchaux was awful. He got pancaked in an intentional double team.
        I guess I know what the ref thought happened. He thought Godchaux pulled the double-teaming guard in, thereby opening the hole for Jones to shoot the gap and make the easy tackle, but the guard went to Godchaux on his own. Terrible call.

        There were a handful of other bad ones, including one later in the same drive on a 3rd down stop (two 3rd down fuck you Dolphins calls on that drive, smh.)

        Even without the refs, our offense has issues. Cutler’s arm looked live today, but his play still stunk.

        Oh well, we started 1-4 last year, maybe we can turn it around.

    • Ken says:

      LOL I think that about says it all

  47. Tim Knight says:

    M13, superior pocket presence from Cutler? That sack and fumble was bad stuff. He’s not really ready to play. Game one was not the norm. I don’t blame Cutler only for the overall offense woes, but he’s a big part of it. He looks sluggish. The OL has been sub par but also put in bad situations that Gase has to take some blame for.

    Gase has to have a meeting of the minds and figure this out before the hole gets too deep.

  48. D says:

    I don’t think you start Moore at all and I’m almost certain unless Cutler gets hurt, Gase won’t start him in place of Cutler.

  49. herdfan says:

    I’m thinking maybe Gase should let someone else call plays. That whole wildcat play? What was that? It took them forever and ever to run it, not like they were fooling anyone or catching then by surprise. If I can see what they’re doing, good chance the opponent is on top of it too. And Cutler just stands there with his hands on his hips like he’s waiting for an elevator or something.

  50. CavalierKong says:

    mf13ss says:

    8) I saw a stat citing that the 3-game Offensive scoring output this year is lesser than ANY 3-game stretch of Joe Philbin’s tenure here… OUCH.
    Ugh, that is the suckiest thing I’ve heard so far. “OUCH” says it all.

  51. CavalierKong says:

    It’s pretty nice to watch the Pets play like normal teams do and look very beatable. That D is atrocious right now.

    M13, superior pocket presence from Cutler? That sack and fumble was bad stuff. He’s not really ready to play…
    Re-watch that play. Ja’Wuan James nearly got Cutler killed. There was absolutely nothing Cutler could have done on that one given play other than just falling down. At least he didn’t get cute and force a throw that could have resulted in an INT.

    I DO feel that Cutler has a tremendous feel for the pocket… he’s got that buzzer going off in the back of his head and automatically knows when to step up or sidestep. I’m not sure we’ve had a QB with as much pocket-presence since Marino… but that’s JMO.

    • D says:

      His pocket presence is much better that we are accustomed to. I’m not sure his is great, but it’s a lot better than Tanny that has almost no pocket presence. Brady, Brees, etc are all much better than Cutler

  53. D says:

    They had Harris lined up as a 3 tech DT today. That’s crazy. I don’t know what they were thinking but he didn’t get much push from there and he got a penalty, a BS one, another time. That roughing call on Suh was bullshit too, he didn’t touch his head, was a shot to the chest, perfectly legal

  54. Tim Knight says:

    Oh my… Cutler is all that. He looks done is how he looks. 6 points in 8 quarters. What are we watching? The offense looks bad but he’s part of it. It starts with the HC/OC for me. Gase has to dial it back and roll with the best players he has, not his ultimate desire.

    • Ken says:

      My problem with Cutler is that he looks like he doesn’t care right now. There is no urgency in his game. He is taking every snap right down to the wire of the play clock even when we are behind. I thought we were supposed to be this up tempo no huddle offense. We look sluggish as all hell

      • D says:

        He seems to be playing scared to me. He doesn’t seem collected as he did in the first game. He isn’t setting his feet and he has an unsettled look to him as he sits in the pocket. He bailed out completely on one play, prepped for the sack before he was out of options. Other time I saw him adjust his feet like 10 times like he was trying to find a passing land and yet getting ready to scramble over and over.

    • D says:

      Can’t you objective? Does Cutler have to suck at everything for you to agree. If I say he has better pocket presence than Tanny, but still say isnt on the level of great as say Brees or Brady, you have to lose your cool over that? No one is saying he’s great dude.

  55. CavalierKong says:

    IMO Cutler doesn’t look any better in a collapsing pocket than Tanny does. There were one or two plays I said to myself ‘Tanny escapes that with his mobility’. But I also figure Tanny may have taken a sack that Cutler didn’t take today because of Cutler’s better awareness. To me it’s a wash.

    • Ken says:

      I think D overstated Tannehill lack of pocket presence. I will admit it was a problem his first couple of seasons but I think he was consistently improving the last couple of seasons to the point where I didn’t think it was a significant issue last season.

      • Ken says:

        That all said I would agree that over his career Cutler has displayed better pocket presence than Tannehill but I am not sure I see that right now

      • D says:

        Ken he took like 13 sacks in first 4 games last year, of which he had 4 strips. He might as well have been blind to his right side. He would never see it coming. Tanny still has horrible pocket awareness, and holds the ball way longer than he should. He also doesn’t know when to just throw it away. He has tons of athletic ability but he statues in the pocket.

    • D says:

      Tanny isn’t even aware the pocket is collapsing that’s why he gets stripped so much. He had at least one strip sack in 4 of the 5 games last year when we were 1-4. He take sacks a lot if time he didn’t have to because he doesn’t move in the pocket. There is an undeniable difference, even I’ll agree Cutler only above average in the pocket and certainly not on the level of the top QBs in the league

      • CavalierKong says:

        I think it’s grossly overstating it to say Tanny isn’t aware the pocket is collapsing. I personally agree with Ken that may have been true his first couple of years, but last year was a significant improvement. I thought he was about average in that dept last year. He still has lapses, and I agree Cutler has better instinctual awareness. I still think Tanny doesn’t take two of the sacks Cutler took today.

      • Ken says:

        He did have that run with some strip sacks some of them was because he was fighting not to go down. That said it was an area that dramatically improved I can recall several plays where he showed great pocket presence in avoiding a sack and making plays down field. The one that stands out to me is the deep ball to Gray against the Steelers last year.

    Oh my… Cutler is all that. He looks done is how he looks. 6 points in 8 quarters. What are we watching? The offense looks bad but he’s part of it. It starts with the HC/OC for me. Gase has to dial it back and roll with the best players he has, not his ultimate desire.
    Nah, Bro… I don’t think anybody thinks Cutler is “all that”.

    Like YOU, I think it all starts with the HC/OC. IMO, Gase is dialing things back to make life easier for Cutler… and I do NOT agree with it, either. Let Cutler rip the ball like he’s used to doing (we saw it work nicely in the preseason).

    There’s enough blame to go around… from the play-calling, to the QB, to the O-Line, to the fact we have so many new players trying to get used to playing with one another.

    Tannenbaum and Grier are certainly not without guilt.

  57. Tim Knight says:

    D, please enough of the Cutler vs. Tannehill stuff. Let it go!!! I’m talking about the 2017 team minus Tannehill. What’s the point?

    We scored 6 points (1 TD – missed XPT) the last 8 quarters. What does Tannehill have to do with it?

      I replied to what M13 said, you jumped on it then make a post like this. Fuck you dude.

      Others are posting about Tanny vs culter and you single me out. Fuck you a second time.

      Who gives you the right. Either read and ignore or read and reply without telling people what they can and can’t post. I’m equally tired of your bullshit about how Tanny is Jesus walking on water when he isn’t.

      Cutler may not be the answer but Tanny has never proven he us either. You can’t take that go cuddle with your Tanny doll and have a better night ok. Otherwise, as previously stated, fuck off.

        Chill man we all have our opinions and nobody is telling anybody what they can or can’t post. Emotions are running hot today because we played like shit again. Tim is a good guy as are you I would hope everyone can express their differences of opinions civilly.

        I have a busy day tomorrow so it is time for me to go cuddle with my Tanny doll. LOL I actually liked that line. Peace

    Goodnight folks! Have at it. LOL

    LET US BE HONEST with something… our O-Line is PATHETIC.

    Seems as though Laremy Tunsil’s testicles have yet to drop as an NFL LT, Anthony Steen isn’t the answer at LG, Mike Pouncey’s days are numbered (he’s been playing very poorly over the last two games), Jermon Bushrod isn’t a spring chicken in only his second year at RG, and Ja’Wuan James is becoming a 1st Round BUST at RT.

    Dammit… OLD DOLFAN and I WARNED about this.

      It just seems like this team has too many glaring holes to be in win-now mode.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      I think it’s a bit hard to evaluate the OL when we end up falling behind by multiple scores

      The OL was fine on the first series of the game and was running the ball well

      3rd and 4th qtr though they looked bad
      But we weren’t running anymore

      Plus I don’t think it helps that cutler is letting the play clock go to the last second

    Ugh, I started debating Tanny. My bad. Hahaha, I have no desire to rehash this right now when he won’t be a factor to this team until next year, lol. Have a good night, ya’ll! 🙂

  61. mf13ss says:

    The Tannehill vs Cutler debate is a legit one to have, IMO. WHY? Because even though Tanny is out for this season, Cutler is battling for a starting job against him come 2018.

    I see no harm and no foul in trying to figure out who the better QB is in the Gase system… BUT IT’S STILL TOO EARLY after a mere 3 games. That, and we don’t know if Tannehill will ever be 100% again.

    Time shall reveal, and there’s still plenty of football to be played for Cutler as there is time for Tanny to successfully recover.

    Track these matters, but nobody (including Adam Gase himself) can make a definitive call RIGHT NOW. Too early, gents.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      Right now Cutler should be battling to stay on the ’17 roster

      • mf13ss says:

        Is that right? Not sure I agree.

      • The Flying Pig says:

        It’s a bit tongue in cheek

        But if his is as good as he is – no question he’s gone in ’18

        We don’t really have too much of a choice now but to ride with him
        Personally I would pull him for Moore with the option to play him again later in the year and give him a second chance

        But looks like Gase is sticking with him for now


    • rgs322 says:

      Honestly, to make a Super Bowl run in the near future, I don’t think our QB is on the field or on the sideline right now.

  62. D says:

    Ken before I wind up getting to a place I just did with Tim I’ll tell you I don’t agree that Tanny has good pocket presence, and that’s my observation on it. I don’t think Cutler’s is perfect, but generally is much better. Doesn’t make Cutler the man for us, and I have never said that, it’s just an observation about something that was being discussed.

    You guys can want for Tanny to be back, he isn’t going to be back, I’m actually hoping Cutler improves so we can improve but I’m also rational enough to know it’s going to take more than just him improving for our team to get better on offense. To be frank I have never liked Cutler, but he is our QB and I’m trying to be positive about it. I do think Tanny is better in some ways but worse in others.

    So now I have that out there, the rest of you pine for Tanny or Moore or whatever. I’ll just stay out of shit since everyone can be talking about the same shit yet I’m accused of starting it all or keeping it going or whatever else Tim wants to blame me for.

    So to you Ken I’ll say I respect your opinion in opposition to mine, I cannot however agree with it.

    • Ken says:

      That’s all cool D. It’s a football blog and we are going to have different opinions and we shouldn’t feel like we shouldn’t share them. This place wouldn’t be much fun if we all agreed with one another. I am out. Peace

  64. D says:

    I’m sorry I got pissed. I’ll chill. Tim you have my apology as well. I’m the d-bag here. Hope the rest of you have a better night.

    This point is irrelevant on every level, and I say that with respect to you, Pig. You’re making excuses where execution mattered. If ya can’t pass-pro, ya die. If ya can’t open lanes in the running game, ya die.

    Look at our sacks yielded and our YPC behind our O-Line. If THAT didn’t suck, then my aunt would be my uncle. Our Offense is stagnant in LARGE part due to our O-Line. It’s easy to say that we’ve been playing from behind as you stated… but why are we playing from behind? Because our Offense can’t put points on the board, by and large due to our O-Line.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      Our offense took the ball 81 yards down the field in their first drive only to come away with nothing after an interception

      The OL looked fine on that drive

      Afterwards it went south

      I think it all feeds off each other but when you look at the fact that Ajayi finished with 12 carries and was being productive
      I don’t know how you ignore the way the game developed and the way it made all the parts looked

      When it rains it hails

    The very green Deshaun only put up 57 today, I wonder if the polished Cutler can even get us in field goal range…

  67. son of a son of a shula says:

    Third down on both sides of the ball we lose

  68. ElephantRider says:

    Cutler is the best thing that could have happened for RT17.
    Chew on that! Lol

  69. olddolphan says:

    YES Mr. SPIKES; YOU & I DID WARN about the overwhelming need to upgrade the O-Line. WHEN THAT did NOT occur, our season was doomed!!! This O-Line opened up with a great first drive then RAN OUT OF GAS!!! – – NOT IN NFL GAME SHAPE, THAT’S FOR SURE!!!
    THIS is a talent driven league. Outside of 5-6 players, Miami DOES NOT HAVE THE TOOLS TO COMPETE AND WIN. YOU NEED 40+ BIG TIME PLAYERS on your squad. We’re not even close to that. THAT’S WHY our personnel acquisition department needs a top-to-bottom over haul. From T-Baum to the lowest ranking scout, our talent department LACKS TALENT EVALUATORS capable of putting a championship team on the field!!!!! And given ROSS’S history of hiring “the wrong people” way too often, the chances of building a first rate scouting department seems pretty small.
    FOLKS, a fish rots from the head down. That’s why, IMHO, Miami will NOT have a championship quality team until ROSS SELLS THE TEAM!! Ross may have “the Midas touch” with real estate. But, regarding building an NFL franchise, he’s proven he’s got “the Midas touch in reverse!” 60 wins and 72 losses during the Ross Era says it all!
    WHAT a tragedy in Las Vegas! Over 200 dead Americans!! Blasting the mayor of San Juan won’t fix this problem nor will it deal with Little Hitler in North Korea!! Time to stop the talking and start taking action!!
