Week 8 – Game 7 – Dolphins @ Ravens

The Dolphins will have a short time to celebrate this week after an exciting come from behind victory at Hard Rock stadium in Miami.  QB Matt Moore led the comeback against the Jets down 28-14 after Jay Cutler was sacked and was later to be found to have multiple cracked ribs.  The Dolphins prevailed with Moore at the helm, winning the game 31-28 in the final minute of the game.  Fest games don’t get much better than that, although I have to admit, last year’s Buffalo comeback win 28-24 was pretty damn close!

So Cutler is out, and now all of you who can’t stand Cutler get your wish.  I caution you though, be careful what you wish for!  No slight to Moore, but Jay Cutler was actually playing well in this game.  Yeah, detractors will point out the pass to Stills (Which was a completion BTW), or the tipped pass for an INT (It happens to every QB), or that we were down 28-14.  I don’t know any more than any of you who want Moore over Cutler, but I got a guy on my side who counts a lot more than you knuckleheads, and that’s HC Adam Gase.

I’ll say this, Moore looked very confident, very comfortable, and moved the team well.  There was a definite difference in the tempo, Moore ran things smoothly, as if he’s been here for years, well, because he has.  I liked what I saw, but I also remember the Matt Moore that makes a great throw one play, and the next tries to force one in there and it’s going the other way.  Matt Moore is a capable NFL QB, but is he sustainable?  I’m not sure if we’ll find that out, because I think he may only get a few games (3-4) before Cutler is healthy enough to play again, and at that point, I do hope it’s a difficult decision for Adam Gase to make, because that would mean Moore has been playing great.  If Moore struggles, there will be no question at all that Cutler will be the QB when healthy.

How about that D-E-F-E-N-S-E ?  Yeah, they struggled a bit against the Jets, but came up big at the end of the game, shutting down the Jets on their last 3 possessions, coming up with the HUGE Bobby McCain INT on the last of the 3 to enable the Dolphins to kick the game winning field goal.  Cam Wake now has 6 sacks in 6 games, which puts him on pace for 16 for the season, which would be a career high for Wake at age 35.  Isn’t that somethin’?  The defense has been getting contributions from a lot of players, the D-line, and I mean more than just Suh, including Phillips, Godchaux, Hayes, Taylor, Harris, Fede, and of course, the LB’s, Alonso, Timmons and even Maualuga.  Reshad Jones is back, and is exactly what we need back there in the secondary.  I can’t wait to see the tandem of Jones and McDonald in Week 9.  Nate Allen hasn’t been awful, but he’s a complete non-factor.  The two young CB’s have had their ups and downs, tank had a rough outing last week, but he’s going to have those.  I’m very pleased with the tandem of Tankersley and Howard.  Next year, hopefully Lippett is back too, and Bobby McCain made a huge play and has been playing better, so things are looking up.

The Ravens have been decimated by injuries, hit even harder than our own Dolphins team, which has seen it’s share for sure.  Joe Flacco has struggled this season, with only 5 TD’s and 8 INT’s.  Son’s boy Breshad Perriman and Mike Wallace are the wideouts, Ben Watson is the TE, and the ravens feature a RB by committee approach, with a combo of Javorius Allen, Alex Collins and Terrance West.  Allen is their leading receiver with 31 receptions, and also has the most carries with 82 for 301 yards and 1 TD.  Terrell Suggs still leads the defense, in his hybrid role of LB and pass rushing DE.  The Ravens are allowing 21.1 PPG while our Dolphins defense 18,7 PPG.  On offense, the Ravens are averaging 18.6 while the Dolphins a paltry 15.3.

It was another fantastic FEST, and I hope that more of you guys and girls can attend the next one.  It’s a great time to be had, and I actually miss all of you who partied with us last week.  If you can find a way to make it, I can assure you won’t regret it!  Dilly Dilly!

The Ravens are coming off a tough loss to the Vikings, 26-14, but those pesky Ravens seem to always give us a tough time.  Last season, the Ravens spanked us 38-6. In 2015, we eeked out a 15-13 win.  In 2010, 2013 and 2014, The Ravens beat us and almost all of those games severely hurt our playoff chances.  No other way to put it, but I freaking HATE the Ravens!  Besides our division rivals, there is no other NFL team I hate more, so I hope Matt Moore brings his “A” game, and the defense does as well!

    We’re 4-3 and host OAK Sunday night. This game will set the tone for the season. If the offense shits the bed again, we’re likely building for 2018.

    Go Phins!!!!

    I’m the ONLY one who tells it like it is rather than be in denial.

    If by “like it is” you mean your slanted opinions that you repeat again and again as if they were fact? you are a troll dude. “know” it all.

    • Slanted opinions. I said we should have never taken Tannehill. Where are we 6 years later. No closer than we were then.

      Said we should take Wentz. We trade down with Philly who trades up from our #8 to take Wentz. Now, they’re in a better position than we are to make a Super Bowl run.

      Of course, there’s plenty of other examples as well. But I don’t know what i’m talking about and I’m a troll. The truth hurts and instead of denying the truth maybe you should take a big dose of reality and that is this team is still the same piece of shit it’s been for a long time because we still have people at the top who don’t know shit about running a football team and now we have another coach who ain’t got no balls. One more year and we’ll be putting out the feelers for another HC.

      Wash, rinse, repeat.

    • At least the one good thing about Philbin is he wanted to draft Carr to replace Tannehill. This whimpy fuck wants to keep the loser quarterback. Quarterback whisperer my ass. He can’t even call the offense. He has to dumb down the offense because he’s not good enough to teach his players how to execute the plays.

  3. Tim Knight says:

    In the next draft I want to land all the best players. At least once I know they’re good. Anyone else? LOL

  4. Tim Knight says:

    LMAO!!!!!

  5. Phindog says:

    I’m not shitting you.. I’m watching a dude in an Eyore costume playing hoops and schooling people. Way cool 👍

  6. Tim Knight says:

    “I love you Carson, you complete me.” LOL

    Fuck Man.. I just found a fungus toenail clipping in on my gourmet steak 🖕

  8. ElephantRider says:

    I’m just a dumb fan so I’m going to give the coach benefit of the doubt. Especially because he KNOWS why he had to simplify the offense. He KNOWS what play was called. He KNOWS what each player’s assignment is. He KNOWS if they freelance. He KNOWS what has been going on behind the scenes.

  9. ElephantRider says:

    Come on Lou.

    If Wentz was a mid round pick it would be one thing. He was a top rated draft pick. He was supposed to be good. Easy to blow your horn on that.

    Pick a guy like Case Keenum! Lol

    • bullshit. when I said Wentz was going to be a top qb in the draft before the start of his senior season most people out there said it wouldn’t happen because he was an FCS player. don’t make it sound like he was being touted by a lot of people because he wasn’t.

    Interesting take!

  11. wyoming85 says:

  12. The HC of the team comes out in front of the media and whines about the players not getting it done. Actually pouts in front of them about his players not getting the job done but the fact that you have players from ANOTHER defense saying they knew the plays that were going to be called during the game and Gase’s play calling was piss poor, which people on this blog have called him out on, has nothing to do with it.

    To quote the “expert” Luis above, you can’t have your cake and eat it too. This is NOT about culture change. Gase lost credibility when he came out and pouted in front of media and he lost even more when all the team did was use one guy as an example for his shortcomings and the shortcomings of others on offense.

    Suh sucks, Trade Landry, Gase Sucks, is there anything you like about this team?

  14. Mike E. says:

    NEW BLOG UP!

  15. ocalarob says:

    NEWSFLASH;;; Gase took this team to 10-6, he currently sits at 4-3, let’s fire him now!
