2018 Season – Game 12 – Bills @ Dolphins

From memory, this is the spot where we’re usually facing playoff elimination.  Sometimes it’s the Bills, sometimes it’s the Ravens, but either way, we come out on the wrong side.  Adam Gase made sure that wasn’t an issue, so thank you Adam for leaving your balls in Davie, and thus sparing us all the usual heartbreak of a major clunker against the Bills.  Despite the records, the Bills are the team on the rise, while we slowly decay from mediocre to possibly sub-mediocre.

There has been much debate about Adam Gase, Ryan Tannehill, and the dynamic duo together as a pair, and while there are two sides to the debate, there’s not a soul on this blog that believes Ryan Tannehill is now, or can ever be on the same level as the best QB’s in the NFL, such as Drew Brees, Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Ben Roethlisberger, Russell Wilson, Phillip Rivers, or even newcomers to this group such as Patrick Mahomes and Jared Goff.  He’s not even close to those guys.  As far as Adam Gase is concerned, his ledger is incomplete, but he’s nearing the point of no return.  I’ll explain.

So much was made about the wonderful job Gase did in Chicago with QB Jay Cutler, and I think I’ve found something about his style.  I don’t think Gase should be known as “The QB Whisperer”.  That’s way too sexy for what Adam Gase does to his QB’s.  I’d call him “The QB  Programmer”.  The program is “BE CAREFUL!”

In 2014 w/o “The QB Programmer”, Jay Cutler threw for 3812 yards, 28 TD’s and 18 INT’s, a QBR of 88.6.  Gase became the Bears OC in 2015, and “The QB Programmer” was born!  No more pesky Peyton Manning telling him to STFU and let me do what I do, now I’m in charge here!  Let’s look at this amazing successful transformation of QB Jay Cutler in 2015.  Cutler threw for 3659 yards, 21 TD’s and 11 INT’s, a QBR of 92.3.

Seems to me that Adam Gase puts completion percentage and less turnovers as the hallmark of his programming algorithm.  Never mind scoring TD’s, in fact, safety first Mr. Quarterback, if you need to throw past 10 yards, you better damn well have a good reason for doing so!  I mean look at the stats of Jay Cutler here in Miami last year, in what looked liked a hideous, grotesque year for him.  He completed 62% of his passes, threw for 2666 yards, 19 TD’s and 14 INT’s in 14 games.  It’s all pretty similar.  Thinking of how many times Cutler threw off his back foot or just chucked it to the turf to avoid a sack, 62% isn’t all that bad. 

This past week in Indy was death knell for me for Gase.  He’s more interested in the appearance of the game, “Gee fellas, that was a close game against Andrew Luck on the road, we almost pulled it out”  What really happened was “Gee fellas, I’m sorry, we had a shot to upset Andrew Luck and the high flying Colts, but I went into a shell, my QB Programmer algorithm told me not to throw the ball past the sticks because, well, it’s dangerous you know, there are men on the other team just dying to take that ball away, and so you see, I took the safe route, and left it in the capable hands of our defense instead”. 

Soooooooooo, we play the Bills in what has now become basically a meaningless game.  The Bills threw up 41 points against the Jets, we just threw up against the Jets, hanging on for dear life with a 13-6 victory in a very painful game to watch.  The Bills defeated a demoralized Jaguars team, but still, a formidable defense for sure, but a team with about as much teeth in their offense as ours. It’s a damn shame, SB7 wants to get together this weekend, but dammit, I don’t have it in me to travel to NYC to watch this team play, not anymore.  I’d sooner meet up and go to McSorley’s Old Ale House, and see if we can deplete them of all of their delicious dark ale, rather than languish at Slattery’s, “The House of Horrors” for Dolphins fans hoping for a crucial win to make the playoffs. 

Tis a sad state friends, and I believe as long as Adam Gase is here (The QB Programmer), and good ole #17, Ryan Tannehill is here, there will be more of the same.  Hell, if I was Ryan Tannehill, I’d welcome the opportunity to compete for a starting job elsewhere, maybe he can have that Rich Gannon type of resurrection.

Anyway, wish I had more positive things to say, but alas, this past week and and frustrating loss has once again left me angry and unsatisfied with the Miami Dolphins.  By the way, I shit you not, I was watching SNY this morning, looking for some positive sports news about the New York Mets, and on the scroll line, I saw the Mets hired Adam Guttridge as Assistant GM for analytics, I saw the Adam G, and I was like “WTF is that, Mets hired Adam Gase!!!!!!!??????”  It got me ultra-pissed for just a millisecond, but that’s how i feel about Adam Gase right now.  I want him nowhere NEAR our rookie QB that we draft next season.  NOWHERE!!!!! 

For those of you who still enjoy the games, I salute you!  Bookman, I love ya man, I wish I could share what you feel, so please continue to bring it here so at least I could share a little of it still.  Even if I get a sliver of it, it will be better than not having any of it.  I admit, sports has made me bitter.  Losing, disappointing seasons are the norm across the board for me now, Dolphins, Mets and Knicks.  The hits keep coming, and I’m feeling like Glass Joe, ready to hit the canvas. 

GO DOLPHINS!!!!

    One didn’t count

  3. Rockphin says:

    Branch does seem to keep drive going for other teams doesn’t he?

  4. wyoming85 says:

    Go Branch! Just 10 more!

  5. CavalierKong says:

    Alright, this is the D’s chance. 2nd and 20, have to get a stop.

  6. CavalierKong says:

    smh

  7. Ken says:

    Allen has made Alonzo his bitch

  8. Rockphin says:

    COME ON MOTHER FUCKERS! FUCKING FUCKING FUCKING FUCK! KILL HIM! HIT HIM!

  9. CavalierKong says:

    i give up. alonso with the whiff

  10. CavalierKong says:

    The Bills should just drop back to pass every time ad let Allen run. We still haven’t even hit him

  11. Rockphin says:

    I DON’T CARE IF IT’S 15 YARDS LEVEL THAT FUCKER

  12. Tim Knight says:

    Fuck with Allen running. Change it up Burke!!!!

  13. CavalierKong says:

    lol, should have been a penalty

  14. Rockphin says:

    TAKE HIS HEAD OFF

  15. CavalierKong says:

    I’m happy they didn’t cal it, but these rules are ridiculous. You call the one on alonso, and not that?!

  16. Rockphin says:

    QUINN! NICE

  17. naplesfan2010 says:

    t/g no penalty on mccain

  18. CavalierKong says:

    YES!!!

  19. Ken says:

    Some timely defense

  20. Rockphin says:

    Can we run the ball for 3:34 now?

  21. Tim Knight says:

    Way to go Burke and defense!!!!

  22. CavalierKong says:

    It would be real nice if our offense can just seal this game for us right now.

  23. naplesfan2010 says:

    We deserved that sequence.

  24. sb7mvp says:

    we’re losing in every stat but score and turnovers. lol. they have twice as many yards as we do.

  25. CavalierKong says:

    Tim, I was about to call you a ridiculously unabashed homer, but I figured I’d rewatch the replay to be sure of myself. I changed my mind. You’re right, he whipped him around, but it was around the shoulder, not the neck.

  26. naplesfan2010 says:

    dumb use of a final time out by bills

  27. sb7mvp says:

    lol. way to convert the 3rd and 1.

  28. Rockphin says:

    Oh, here comes the inept melt down

  29. naplesfan2010 says:

    bad place for a wild cat as they know exactly what we would do…should’ve passed off that formation

  30. naplesfan2010 says:

    need a defensive stop here for a change

  31. Randy says:

    3rd and 1….game on the line….and your QB is lined up at WR.

  32. sb7mvp says:

    2 plays and already at midfield

  33. naplesfan2010 says:

    has any DB knocked down anything?

  34. Rockphin says:

    Oh we are set up for a big finish hear in Miami!

    STFU!

  35. naplesfan2010 says:

    no DBs guarding anybody again

  36. CavalierKong says:

    Well at least it looks like our defensive collapse is happening nearly instantaneously so we’ll still have plenty of time and T/Os to keep our hope alive we that we can get a FG to tie it after they score, lol.

  37. Ken says:

    Well we should get the ball back with time

  38. sb7mvp says:

    61 yards in 31 seconds. Way to make a stand.

  39. Rockphin says:

    X factor time

  40. Rockphin says:

    Turn over
    Turn over
    Turn over!!

    Let’s go Dolphins!!

  41. Rockphin says:

    LET’S GO PICK IT!

  42. CavalierKong says:

    this call might be the game

  43. sb7mvp says:

    The mighty Colts were shut out today.

  44. CavalierKong says:

    Woohoo! Just get one more play D!

  45. Rockphin says:

    NICE pass interference by Fitz

  46. Randy says:

    Minkah got away with PI on that play.

  47. Randy says:

    Don’t let Allen run for a damn first down

  48. Rockphin says:

    They should Run Allen, he could get the first

  49. CavalierKong says:

    Holy shit!! unbelievable

  50. Rockphin says:

    THANK YOU CHARLES!

  51. CavalierKong says:

    How is Quinn so stupid to take that angle and let Allen get back around him, smh. Thank god the Bills are more inept than we are.

  52. TryPod says:

    Should have lost. Deserved to lose.

  53. Tim Knight says:

    Wow it’s never easy for us. LOL

  54. Ken says:

    Not pretty but a divisional win. I will take it

  55. Rockphin says:

    Josh Allen is PASSIONATE

    He is crying like a girl on the side line

  56. wyoming85 says:

    Clay wins one for Miami!

  57. naplesfan2010 says:

    Thank you Jesus.

  58. TryPod says:

    The juggernaut that is 21 points a game is enough- against Buffalo. Yay dolphins

  59. stangerx says:

    Tanny’s QB rating today was 103.6.
    Allen’s was 71.7, but then he was their leading rusher too.

  60. wyoming85 says:

    Here comes we won but looked like shit! Just like the Jests game?????

  61. CavalierKong says:

    And who the hell dropped off coverage to let Clay be that wide open. There wasn’t a Dolphin within 10-15 yds of him.

    • Mike E. says:

      I would imagine everyone was running around like crazy, that play was about 10 seconds long. I can kinda understand how that can happen.

  62. Mike E. says:

    Clay with a game winning non-catch for the Dolphins. Thanks Charles!

  63. CavalierKong says:

    LMAO! Since week 7 the Jest have only led for 2 minutes and 31 seconds of game time compared to 228 minutes and 38 seconds of trailing. Wow!

  64. Ken says:

    We gave the ball away once they gave it over 3 times. Turn overs matter.

  65. Mike E. says:

    BTW – If we went to Slattery’s, Charles Clay catches that ball for the game winning TD. The next play would be Tannehill getting sacked and his left leg removed. lol

  66. Tim Knight says:

    Man some of you guys are never happy. LOL

  67. Rockphin says:

    A WHOPPING 138 yards passing!!

    GGG

  68. TryPod says:

    Yep, I couldn’t be prouder.

  69. Tim Knight says:

    We can’t run the ball when we need to at all.

  70. TryPod says:

    The dolphins did not win- Buffalo lost.

  71. Rockphin says:

    We TRIED to lose that one but Clay forgot which team he was playing for at the very end.

  72. Mike E. says:

    I’m neither happy nor unhappy, I’m neutral. This win didn’t inspire to me think we can compete for a playoff spot, but we didn’t crumble at the end of the game (almost), which is good. That pass to Stills looked like it could have been picked, but it reinforces to me why it’s necessary to take those shots that we very rarely take. You can’t throw every freaking pass within 5 yards, so I like seeing that a lot

  73. mf13ss says:

    Bad win, but a win is a WIN!

  74. CavalierKong says:

    Nothing to brag about, but at least my Bills fan coworker has to buy me the bag of chips this time.

  75. stangerx says:

    Josh Allen has some real good legs and one heck of an arm, but his accuracy is not good. But end of the day….. have no doubt he’ll be playing for a good long while.

  76. CavalierKong says:

    Mike, I feel the same, neither happy nor unhappy, just jaded.

    I have to disagree about not collapsing at the end of the game though. To me that was a defensive collapse. Clay should have made that catch. Lucky for us he didn’t, so we get the win.

    • Ken says:

      Yes but the pass rush made Allen throw the ball short

      • Mike E. says:

        It was short, but Clay seemed to stumble coming back for the football. He should have been able to catch that, and once he caught it, he would have plenty of time to get in the endzone. He didn’t, so who it doesn’t matter.

      • CavalierKong says:

        That’s valid, I still feel it was more that they failed to make that play more than it was we stopped them. But these things happen, and we’ve had our fair share of bad luck over the years, so I’ll take it! 🙂

  77. TryPod says:

    Sorry for being a negative dick. Truth is I didn’t watch any but the last 54 seconds, since that seems to be more or less when Dolphin’s games are decided. Apologies for coming here and pissing on the victory parade.

    • Mike E. says:

      Ah, if it wasn’t you, someone else would have been happy to take your place. Don’t sweat it

    • Tim Knight says:

      You weren’t the only one don’t worry about it. LOL

    • stangerx says:

      No problem at all — we miss you though bro. Hope you stop in other than on game day.

    • Ken says:

      No apologies it wasn’t a pretty win but it was a win and we actually made plays when we had too.

    • CavalierKong says:

      You shouldn’t have to apologize. This wasn’t inspiring football. Some people always have to make a big deal about it that people don’t feel or think the same things they do. Just ignore it.

      We all have differing degrees of feeling about this game, lol.

  78. Mike E. says:

    Effing TryPod ruined my entire Dolphins experience today. WTF! I was jumping around the house for joy, and I then I have to read TryPod’s (WOMP, WOMP) commentary. Unbelievable!

  79. CavalierKong says:

    If we had a couple of legitimate guards playing today, our offense might have performed quite a bit better. The Bills defense is no slouch, and our guards were turnstiles.

  80. The Flying Pig says:

    I didn’t watch the game

    Am I reading that right

    We were outgained 415 yards to 175 yards?

    • CavalierKong says:

      Woah, I didn’t realize there was that big a disparity. TOs made the difference.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Yes but it doesn’t really tell the whole story of the game. Josh Allen was flushed out of the pocket all day and rushed for 135 yards. Field position and penalties also played a role in how the game played out. That and BUF getting yards at the end of the half and game, but not points.

  81. CavalierKong says:

    My coworker still has a bag of chips hanging in his office from their week 17 win last year. I can belittle him into taking those down now.

  82. Tim Knight says:

    Hey at the end of the day it was a fun football game. Rather than knowing we lost before it was even over. There were a lot of penalties and questionable ones for both teams all day as usual. That’s the game we have now.

    I said yesterday I’m okay with Jesse Davis at RG. Not so sure about that anymore. We need better guards if we want to run the ball consistently. We also still allow stunts and blitzes inside like we’re not even there. That’s getting old.

    If Josh Allen wasn’t such a huge, good athlete and runner we might have had 5+ sacks today. If he ever improves as a rhythm passer look out.

    • CavalierKong says:

      Yeah, agreed about Davis. I thought he’d been ok, not good but serviceable, till today. He was a drive killer today.

  83. Mike E. says:

    What we do on defense without Xavien Howard?

  84. pheloniusphish says:

    Miami’s pass rush is pitiful.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Actually it was good plenty today but Allen is no easy target and he’s a lot faster than I thought he was. A less mobile QB would have been crushed today.

  85. Mike E. says:

    Charles Harris is one disappointing mofo . . . What is our major malfunction with identifying a pass rusher in the draft?

  86. rich0322 says:

    A typical Dolphins-Bills game.

    I think Dan Patrick summed it up best with the Dolphins when he said the franchise really has no sense of direction. It’s the same thing every year. …they’re not necessarily horrible, just meh.

  87. CavalierKong says:

    Allen actually looked faster than any QB I’ve watched since Kaep, Deceptively fast. He made Alonso his bitch all day. Next game maybe we can spy with Baker. Baker is a bit faster and more fluid than Alonso, might have better results.

  88. Randy says:

    We should have had Baker shadowing Allen. He’s fast enough to mirror him. Kiko got his jock handed to him often.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Kiko wasn’t shadowing him, he was just the one chasing him more often than everyone else. Allen is an impressive athlete and beat all our defenders on runs all day.

  89. Randy says:

    Kong,
    You damn dirty ape!!

  90. ElephantRider says:

    Good thing Allen is not very accurate and terrible throwing on the run. Defense is still lost out there. But Buffalo cant get out of their own way. LOL

  91. CavalierKong says:

    One thing we didn’t mention today, how about our special teams? 3 blocks in 3 weeks, and I’ve lost count of the number of blocked kicks we’ve had in the last couple of years. Rizzi is the man.

  92. ElephantRider says:

    Where were all the WR screens today? At least we cant bitch about that!

    • Tim Knight says:

      It’s funny, we take shots down the field and Tannehill gets pummeled all day. Then complain when Gase says we can’t do that. We also can’t run when we have to. We’re on our 3rd center, backup at LG and a questionable starter in Davis at RG. He might be a better swing G/T than starter. We really need our TEs to step up in 2019. We can except the learning curve there. But we lost too much on the OL, at QB for some games and explosiveness at WR. The DL also took hits losing Hayes and Taylor for the year. These were all players that made a difference.

      But the team battled all day and I appreciate that as a fan and we won the game. Why are we still looking for dominance? From where other than a play here and there? We’re not a juggernaut team. We weren’t before all the injuries.

  93. sb7mvp says:

    We were aimless and terrible in our first 3 wins too. People seem to want to ignore that.

  94. stangerx says:

    Dolphins 5-1 at home and 1-5 on the road.
    They do like playing at the Rock, except when it is the Fest of course. 🙂

    • Tim Knight says:

      Had CIN and IND right there and blew it. That’s how close it is for some teams. A few other teams are on another level but that’s about it.

  95. Rockphin says:

    Mike E. says:

    My guess? The same as with identifying TE’s, OG’s, LB’s and so on.

    That is part of the problem. It’s almost like one really shitty season where we go 3-13, or 4-12 would be better than going 7-9, 8-8, or heaven forbid even 9-7. lol
    Reply

    Yeah, but then they would end up picking Ronnie Brown over Aaron Rogers…..

    • Tim Knight says:

      Aaron Rodgers’ team is now 4-7-1. They just lost to ARZ. They’ve been decimated with injuries and off all year. What’s that all about?

      • Rockphin says:

        the team as a whole is sucking. That doesn’t change that 20+ teams missed on the best QB to come out of college in 20 years. I liked Ronnie Brown a lot too. It just turned into a suck draft. Ronnie Brown #2 overall? Aaron Rogers in the 20’s?

      • Tim Knight says:

        I get that. I love Rodgers he’s been my FFL QB since 2008. It just shows you it’s not all about the QB if other parts aren’t working. There is only so much they can do. Marino went through it from 86-89 and he’s one of the best to ever play the game. 30-33 record during that span. Our fans our asking Tannehill to be more than they even believe he’s capable of. Why? He put us in a position to win last week and we didn’t, he answered the Bills 17-14 lead 21-17 today and we held up. Let’s not act like he’s surrounded by awesomeness and he just can’t get it done. Yes he can. We’re just not good enough to overwhelm anyone.

  97. Rockphin says:

    We get a rare chance at the #1 overall and we take an OT? Ronnie Brown #2 overall? Just seems we get screwed going through the drive-through every time.

    • ElephantRider says:

      Parcells….

    • Tim Knight says:

      Saban – Aaron Rodgers who dropped to #24 in 2005. Matt Ryan is not in the same league unless everything is going well.

    • wyoming85 says:

      Who out there was pissed we took Jake?
      Nobody!
      So before injuries he was a beast!!!!

      Ronnie is a different story! That one was out of left field! But it didn’t turn out to bad!

    • ocalarob says:

      back then there was no rookie scale so you couldnt trade out of the #1 pick, no one wanted to pay that money that a #1 pick demanded, having pennington they just had to take long, saban drafted ronnie brown

  98. stangerx says:

    Don’t know about the rest of you guys, but was on the edge of my seat at the end of today’s game. that last play had so many swings almost had a heart attack.

    • Tim Knight says:

      It was fun right? That’s what it is supposed to be. 🙂

      • stangerx says:

        For me just entertainment and was entertaining. So got all I could ask for. But for a lot of people….. well guess we each have our own way of rooting for the same team.

  99. sb7mvp says:

    Tim,
    Yes we were. Go back and watch them. They were pretty close to today’s game.

  100. bookman11 says:

    All I have to say is we won! We’re In it! GoFins! Beat the Pats!

  101. ocalarob says:

    This team has a hard time closing out games, first of all they should have challenged O’Leary’s spot, he made the 1st, 2nd why would you line up in the wild cat on a critical 3rd and 1 to seal the game. you either qb sneak it or you give it to a FB. lining up in the shot gun in that situation is a disaster of a call WTF!

    • CavalierKong says:

      It was hard to tell, but I thought O’Leary may have got the 1st too. I put it on slow-mo and his hand hit the ground, then the knee almost instantly after it. It looked like he was MAYBE at most a foot short. It was close, he definitely was not a full yard off. Terrible spot.

  102. ocalarob says:

    we’re chasing the 7-5 Ravens who still have to play @ KC and @ chargers,

  103. Mike E. says:

    SB – I agree with you, even if Tim doesn’t. It’s not like we were some juggernaut, we got by Tennessee who wasn’t playing well at that time, had a helluva time with the Jets, barely escaped with a win against Oakland who were awful, and then got shellacked by the Patriots

  104. Randy says:

    A game can be poorly played and entertaining. This one was. Buffalo is not a good team either, and we did just enough to beat them thanks to a missed XP and FG. This kind of performance won’t beat good teams but that ain’t Buffalo.

    • stangerx says:

      But who was thinking we could beat good teams other than the any given Sunday thing before the game started? Team is what the team is.

    Way to go Big Joe!

  106. wyoming85 says:

    Well there you go! SOME have wanted to see if Joe could have made it with a better QB?
    Now we will find out!!!!!!!!!!!

  107. Tim Knight says:

    Mike, holy flying fuck!!! I said earlier and many times during this season and tonight “We’re not a juggernaut team. We weren’t before all the injuries.”

    We were not horrible the first 3 games. I said over and over scratch and claw and win as many as you can as we try build on this because there is plenty to clean up in all phases. Then the team started to come apart with injuries. Come on guys, be realistic! This annoys the shit out of me because I get ignored and the conversation then becomes as if I thought we would be awesome. Never said that once this year. I had no preseasaon prediction because I had never seen this team play before. Then when we lost a lot of key guys and lost some close games I said we’re not very good.

    That said, we were not terrible the first 3 wins. Does anyone know what terrible means anymore? LOL

  108. ElephantRider says:

    Like it or not…but thru all the injuries, playcalling, and horrible QB…this team is 1 game out of the playoffs.

  109. Tim Knight says:

    I give up! I thought my longtime friends and FB friends were off at times but many of us saw each other recently and we all realized how petty everything gets. We all clanked glasses and said no more, it’s ridiculous. This blog is becoming like the ‘The View’. Nobody listens, reads or whatever.

    We won a game today that was fun to watch and still not good enough. We must be dominant or else. LOL

  122. New Age says:

    Tim,

    I understand your side but why weren’t we a good team even from the beginning? That’s the part me, maybe Mike and a few others focus on. If we aren’t a good team early, then something wasn’t built right. Every year we have questions on if certain talents will ever play well. Our OL is a turnstile every year. Parker is injured every year. We have at least one new starting CB every year. Our DEs have low sacks numbers…again every year. At this point, yes, it seems like we are stuck in neutral every year. We see us barely beat a terrible Bills team as our entire offense can’t hit 200 yards for the entire game. If it was just an issue this year, it wouldn’t be so glaring.

    • stangerx says:

      The team just isn’t that good, but that’s why Vegas had us at 7 wins. Same time much as I would love to have a true contender, lot worse teams out there too.

  123. Ken says:

    It wasn’t a pretty win but there was some good moments in the game. Tannehill did not have a great game but he threw 3 TDs including one in the 4th quarter to give us the lead. Xavien Howard had his 3rd multi int game of the season and now has 7 ints on the season. The D did come up with 2 fourth quarter stops. We won the turnover battle 3-1. This was not the 13-6?win over the Jets. We made plays when we had to in all 3 phases of the game. So quit all the bitching out there. Hulk out.

    • Mike E. says:

      I enjoyed the game today, it was definitely entertaining without question. On the other hand, I’m not looking at it as anything other than a win over another poor to middling team.

    It’s poisonous stay away from that crap, it will shut down your liver. That and hope. Stay away from that crap too.

    This is my outlook:

    This team has issues and they have been the same issues no matter who was at QB, who was the OC, who was the DC, with and without the “stars” we lost this off-season.

    We are a slow start team and have not been able to score in the first half, especially in the the first quarter.
    We are an undisciplined team always toward the top of the league in penalties since Gase took over
    We cannot convert on third down or run out the clock
    we cannot run for short yardage
    we cannot stop the run
    we cannot stop teams when it’s 3rd and long

    This is all on Gase man.

    GGG

  131. Rockphin says:

    ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS FOR THE DOLPHINS TO DEMORALIZE THE PATS NEXT WEEK

  132. Okay. I’m wrong. I admit it. Sign Gase to an extension and do the same for Tannehill. I seriously do not know what I’m talking about.
    You’re right. Keep this thing going and it will gel. Wait until next year.

    • wyoming85 says:

      I don’t think anyone is particularly wrong!

  133. naplesfan2010 says:

    I’m very happy for Cam Wake that we won.
    I thought our guys played hard and tried hard and never gave up.

    We led the whole game except for a few minutes, and we also came from behind to win.

    Tannehill threw 3 TDs, was tough as nails, and shook off some more rust.

    We won with Jake Brendel, our 3rd string center. We won with Brice off his sofa and Ford just up from the PS as our WR3 & 4.

    I’m very glad Phillips lost.

  134. naplesfan2010 says:

    We ARE building.
    We now have 3 good young TEs. A star on the rise in Minkah and a pro bowl CB in X.
    PK and Punter look solid and LBs Raekwon and Baker are improving and will be good.
    Tunsil still has not given up a sack all year (right?) and James has long flawless stretches although he sometimes screws up.

    Drake is a home run threat from anywhere, and Ballage is learning how to be a pro more all the time.

    I say next year we draft OL and DL interiors by finding the meanest toughest ass kickers of all.

    Ken, it appears that Naples has gotten into a stash I must have lost track of. He must be drinking some of that poison.

    Tannehill is 10-1 in his last 11 home games.

  137. naplesfan2010 says:

    Xavien Howard has been a turnover machine for the Dolphin defense. His two interceptions killed Buffalo drives and now has a total of 11 interceptions in his last 17 games, which is tops in the NFL. His league leading seven interceptions is setting the tone for the secondary, and now has five career games of two or more interceptions, which is tied for third most in franchise history.

    “When you get in the red zone, you’ve got to put points on the board. You want them to be touchdowns. We were able to do that today and it helped us get the W at the end of the day.”

    — Running back Kenyan Drake said the offense was efficient against the Bills because they were 3-for-3 in the red zone in terms of producing touchdowns. The offense did not produce a lot of yards, but the Dolphins ended up with a touchdown every time they got inside the Buffalo 45-yard line. It ultimately was enough to help produce a victory.

    Still made a great play on that touchdown. Thats probably his best reception since he has been with us, though the one he caugh in the back corner of the endzone while Oz was the QB was really friggin good too.

      We beat the Pats in Miami last year, but I was talking about the general pattern of over the past decade or so, but you’re right about Gase after I relooked at his past games.

  155. D says:

    I think given the fact that the Bills and Allen have been coming along as an offense, or defense did pretty good holding them to 17 but we almost got fucked at the end had that pass had a little more on it. Pass rush had him all over the place and kept him from setting his feet but the secondary didnt really stay with their guys well. Thats not an easy thing to do when things break down and become a freelance thing, but we came way too close to losing for my taste.

  156. D says:

    Still looking like 8-8 at this point. 6-6 with 2 hard ones left back to back. The Bills at their place, in late December, isnt going to be fun either, and the Jags defense makes that one kind of scary too. Optimistically 8-8, though i could see anywhere from that and 6-10.

    • stangerx says:

      Pretty clear unless we have a movie finish that won’t be playoffs. 9-7 might let us sneak in, but don’t think anyone on this board is looking at a drive through the playoffs even then. Just hoping the team shows some grit and hope for the future. And yeah that most especially includes Tanny. Let him go all crazy and see what happens.

  157. Mike E. says:

    Patriots will be looking for home field through the playoffs, still doable, especially if they win out. Vikes are still in the playoff hunt, so they should give us a tough game. The Jaguars have checked out already, but that defense could give our O-line fits, so you can’t count that as an easy one. The Bills at home will be looking for revenge, definite bad blood between our two teams, and I’ll tell you one thing, Jason Allen was looking for calls after a few hits, and I was pretty surprised he didn’t get them. That won’t fly when we’re in Buffalo, that’s for sure. I could see us losing 3 of 4, or even 4 of the last 4. That said, I liked our approach this game. Let Tanny throw the ball downfield, good things can happen, even on throws that weren’t that great.

    • CavalierKong says:

      I see the last 4 the same way you do, Mike. Although at the same time, these games are all winnable too. We always give the Pets fits in Miami. Minnesota is all over the place as are the Jags, and Buffalo is Buffalo.

      We could go 0-4 or we could win out, lol.

      • Mike E. says:

        Yeah, depends on which Gase shows up any particular week, the one that’s a like a 5 YR old kid who’s bubble happy, or the one that takes the training wheels off Tannehill

  158. CavalierKong says:

    Here is an odd thing. Baltimore leads the league in scoring defense at 17.8 points a game, which isn’t unusual for them. What is odd, is they are 3rd worst in the league with only 9 total takeaways. Only 9 takeaways, yet best total defense and best scoring defense. Pretty impressive.

  159. stangerx says:

    “Every time I made a play, I clapped my hands. And it was directed toward them. For some reason, they felt the need to run at me, and they paid for it. I would’ve liked to come out of here with a win but Gase definitely respects me after this game.”

    — Jordan Phillps, who was real happy after the loss even though helped set up the winning TD.

  160. Tim Knight says:

    I didn’t know McCarthy was fired and Philbin interim, I thought that was a rumor. LOL

  161. Tim Knight says:

    I think when it comes to throwing the ball down the field that is all about protection. There was a stretch in the game yesterday when we couldn’t throw it down the field because we couldn’t hold blocks for more than a second. When we did have time, we did hit on some chunk yard pass plays.

    • Mike E. says:

      Bah, humbug! Tannehill was getting hit on every other play, yet Gase decided to let him throw downfield anyway. It’s the recipe for success. So many things can happen, pass interference, defensive holding or a reception or on the bad side, incomplete or intercepted. I think in today’s game, the good outweighs the bad. He has to continue letting Tannehill throw the ball downfield

    • Tim Knight says:

      Oh I agree but we have to do a better job blocking. There was a point in the game yesterday after the first drive that I wasn’t sure we would score again because Tannehill had no time and the run was meh. We made some adjustments though and scored enough.

  162. ocalarob says:

    McCarthy wont be unemployed very long

  163. Mike E. says:

    Tom

    Odds are the blocking won’t get much better, but regardless, it was so much more fun to watch yesterday, it really was.

  164. Randy says:

    Tim,
    A second? You always exaggerate how long Tanny has to pass. Plus, do you ever watch any other NFL games? It’s a league wide issue, and QBs are lucky to get a couple seconds to make a play. Its not like tanny is experiencing something most other QBs don’t. Then, add in his lack of awareness and poor movement inside the pocket, and you have your answer to why he constantly looks harrassed. He’s part of the problem but you never mention that. You must miss it.

    • Tim Knight says:

      I’m not making excuses for Tannehill. There was a stretch in the game where we were getting killed with blitzes and stunts. Sacks, hits, tipped passes. James Lofton was pointing it out because it was happening. There was no sliding in the pocket because it came from everywhere. The run game was getting tripped up because of it too. I think you missed it. 😉

      Can we ever talk about the game as it was without it having to be just about Tannehill? It would have happened to any QB back there because it was a blocking issue not a QB issue during that stretch I’m referring to. The OL were also getting called for multiple penalties during that stretch because they were struggling. We punted 4 straight times with 1 yard of offense during those 4 possessions before scoring on a short field off the muffed punt by BUF.

      Like I said we made some adjustments and it was then more manageable.

      • Tim Knight says:

        And yes other QBs deal with stuff like that too and that’s when they struggle to move the ball. It’s happening more often to Aaron Rodgers these days. It happened to Drew Brees on Thursday night. It happened to Luck yesterday as well with the Colts getting shutout 6-0.

      • ElephantRider says:

        I see Brady standing around for 7 seconds pretty frequently….

      • Rockphin says:

        Poppycock! It’s all Tannehills fault. The EYE BALL test says so…..

  165. Randy says:

    Now I feel better Tim. 🙂

  166. Randy says:

    never once have I ever claimed that it’s all on Tannehill. I ripped the o-line many times. If you guys want to make it all about Tannehill that’s fine have at it. Cry all you like

    • Tim Knight says:

      I was talking about a stretch in the game where BUF defenders were beating our OL off the snap and into the backfield in under two seconds meaning we only had them blocked for about a second before they had free access to the QB or RB.

      Your response was “You always exaggerate how long Tanny has to pass.” So yeah you made it about him when I was talking about a blocking issue we were having. Not sure how you didn’t see it if you watched the game. The announcers were even talking about it.

  167. Rockphin says:

    WOW! With the win yesterday the Dolphins DOUBLED the odds of making the playoffs!!

    They went from 3% to 6% LOL

  168. drg says:

    I always liked Charles Clay

  169. drg says:

    Randy,

    I think that’s what ultimately limits Tannehill’s ceiling is his inability to extend plays when he gets pressured in the pocket. He doesn”t sense pressure too well, and rarely escapes the pocket when it does collapse. He’s solid and there aren’t any obvious upgrades out there via trade or FA.

    From what it sounds like, I’d prefer we roll with Tannehill/Gase next season and target a QB early in 2020 where there are more intriguing guys. I’m not enamored with anyone in the 2019 class unless we can get them in the mid or late rounds.

    • stangerx says:

      Least think we should bring in some QB for next year, even if just a solid back-up vet or 2nd or 3rd or 4th round guy to groom.

  170. mf13ss says:

  171. Randy says:

    drg,
    If Tannehill is the future at QB for Miami, we’re going nowhere because he doesn’t make others better. 8 win seasons will continue to be the norm until we get a last place schedule where our opponents are like 55-105 again.

  172. drg says:

    Stanger,

    I’d love us to draft a guy late and groom him. There are a few diamonds in the rough we could invest a late round pick in. Currently, I don’t see anyone out there worth 10+ million that I’d want here long term. I’d prefer not to throw away an entire season riding with a 5 million Osweiller type, so Tannehill seems like the best option and gives us a chance to make the playoffs if things go well.

    • stangerx says:

      I have always assumed Tanny would be our starting QB opening game 2019. And that includes even if we break the draft bank to trade way up. There will be another QB though.

  173. mf13ss says:

  174. Randy says:

    Tim,
    You constantly rip the OL. Should I get whiny about that and claim you always make it about the OL? We were playing backups and backups’ backups yesterday on the OL. Tanny should have anticipated that his protection might be hit and miss and been ready to move or know he would have to get rid of the ball and live to fight another day if need be. Brady does it all the time. Tanny played OK yesterday, but he still struggles sensing and avoiding pressure and getting rid of the ball instead of taking a sack…in year 7. Help your OL out once in awhile. Throw the damn ball away.

    And now I will stop talking about Tannehill. Lol

      I’m sorry but that’s what I saw. Why do you think they kept mentioning what a rough day Jesse Davis was having specifically against Kyle Williams. Then they started adding additional blitzers at times and we were struggling to pick them up. Then we started getting called for holding because of it.

      Even on the short TD pass to Drake in the flat where he had to wait on the ball because Tannehill put a big arc on it was because a corner blitzed it and jumped up to try and bat it down or pick it off so Tannehill had to throw it even higher. The Bills were really coming after us a lot after our successful first drive for a TD and it took us awhile to adjust to it.

      This is just discussing the game. Not blaming anyone or defending anyone, just revisiting what happened and discussing with Mike about throwing the ball down the field more. We struggled with that with Osweiler as well. When he took deeper drops he got pressured and sacked a lot. That’s a protection issue. I think Gase would love to see us throw it down the field more but sometimes we can’t. That’s why we need the run game to be better to set those up off play-action.

      That was the play where Allen was running around deep in the pocket doing his best Fran Tarkenton impression. So that whole play was busted and a scramble for everyone. I don’t blame Clay for not catching that ball as it was fluttering and dying in the air as this video shows.

      Crazy finish as we seem to always be involved in those last minute and last second nail biters. LOL

  177. drg says:

    Are there any QBs coming out this year that you think are worth the investment? If it’s someone likely to go top 10 we are talking at least two first round picks to acquire him. Any FAs or trades worth considering?

      Yeah I said that yesterday. He’s solid some games but can really struggle against good DTs. He might be better as a swing G/T than a starter. We have to get better on the interior OL. Hopefully we can get a season out of Kilgore and Sitton next season and add an upgrade at RG.

    drg,
    I have not looked at any QBs in depth yet. They are usually the last position I look at because I hate it! That said, my belief on drafting QBs is that it’s probably gonna cost you a lot, and you have to take a chance when it’s there because you, hopefully, aren’t in the top 10 often. If I’m in the top 10 and I need a QB, I try to get one. There are no guarantees with any players and QBs are probably the worst. I do think…with what little I know about this class….that several have a chance to be just as good as Tanny if not better, in time. Expecting a rookie QB to come in and play as well as a 7 year vet is ridiculous. To me, it’s not whether or not a kid we draft will be better than Tanny next year. It’s can he be better in 2 or 3 years. Sitting around waiting for that “sure thing” makes no sense because who knows when one of those guys will be there to get?

    Precedence has been set, and shortly after Jaylon Smith got tore up in his Bowl game.

      I don’t really like this trend, but I can understand why. And for those clamoring about QBs in the ’19 Draft class, let’s see how they do in their Bowl games… it’s VERY important as to how they handle the spotlight and pressure of a big game.

    No amount of newer or better players are going to make Gase a better coach.

  183. Randy says:

    They canceled “Daredevil”? WTF?

  184. Randy says:

    M13,
    I kinda disagree. Teams are drafting QBs on athletic talent and potential more than ever. Heck, even Tanny was drafted with, what, 19 games played? It seems the trend is moving towards drafting guys who they think they can develop over guys who have proven their worth in college. It’s no longer about getting guys who were 4 year starters.

  186. drg says:

    Randy,

    Agree with everything you said. I don’t think any of the QBs show much more potential than Tannehill. I want to draft a guy with a much higher ceiling than where Tannehill has peaked at. 2020 looks much more optimistic. That said, what do I know? If there’s a guy they love then go get him, regardless of the cost.

    Where do you think he lands, with the Jets?

    M13,
    I just meant that how players perform in bowl games is becoming less important. Teams are drafting QBs based on what they think they can become….not so much what they showed in college.

    • mf13ss says:

      Alright, I hear ya on that. However, I think it depends on the team/GM/scouting department. I, for sure, would like to know how a QB — the most important position on the field — handles a BIG GAME. Will he shrink or will he shine?

      I’m old school, though!

    HUGE hit to the Bengals’ Offense.

    Tim – So the Mets trade with the Mariners is now official. Cano and Diaz will be introduced tomorrow at 11AM at Citi Field

  192. naplesfan2010 says:

    Do you guys think Gase gets hired by the Packers for next year?

  193. BailBondMike says:

    Green Bay really doesn’t have as many weapons as us on offense. Trade Tannehill and our #1 for Aaron Rodgers.

  194. naplesfan2010 says:

    The Packers are said to be looking for a young QB centric HC who will let Rodgers call his own game a la Peyton Manning who did it at Denver when … wait for it … Gase was his OC.

    A FEW RANDOM thoughts on the Bills @ Miami game from someone WHO WAS THERE!!
    1) With one exception, Bills’ fans were MUCH more agreeable and affable than usual. 4 guys in row in front of me (all Bills fans who flew in for the game) were easy to get along with and very easy to talk to! Actually, in section 120, Buffalo fans outnumbered Miami fans. Overall, I’d say roughly 40 per cent of those attending were Buffalo fans. And about 1/4 of the seats stayed unoccupied the entire game.
    2) Guy who weighed about 350 was wearing a bright red with blue trim #64 Richie Incognito Bills’ jersey!! I thought about trying to buy it from him as a gift to YOUNG STANGER. But then I asked myself “do I REALLY WANT to see this huge tub of lard walking around shirtless?”
    3) Bad day for the Fins running game. O-Line REALLY stunk!!
    4) Last play almost gave me a heart attack!!!! We were lucky to win this game, REALLY LUCKY!!
    ———
    But it was a very merry ride back to Tampa Bay!! – – NOTHING LIKE winning a game against a division opponent!!! –I HOPE we get at least one more win against an AFC East opponent THIS
    SEASON!! But I would NOT bet on it.
    ——–
    OUT for tonight. This old man is STILL TIRED!!

    For next year? You think they’re going to can Gase after this season?

    Nahh,

    but if you want to get a proven coach that’s how you would do it, you wait till some team dumps their great coach, like Philly did with Andy reid and then you jump on him..

    when you get fed up with your present coach and you fire him most of the time pickens are slim for a replacement. you get back on the merry go round with an unproven coach.

    McCarthy is a proven winner, not sure if there’s more to it than McCarthy. who knows maybe he’s not that good but normally coaching is the difference between winning and losing
