2019 Season Game 1 – Miami Dolphins vs Baltimore Ravens

The 2019 season for the Miami Dolphins is about to start for real this coming Sunday at 1PM. Both teams have had some radical makeovers, neither team is particularly recognizable from the teams that played last season. Both long time starting QB’s are playing for other AFC teams, Ryan Tannehill for Tennessee and Joe Flacco for Denver. Also gone from the Ravens are Terrell Suggs, C.J. Mosely, Eric Weddle and Michael Crabtree. Gone from the Dolphins are Laremy Tunsil, Cam Wake, Kiko Alonso and Kenny Stills.

The Dolphins have officially made the change to a 3-4 base defense. After jettisoning most recently DE Tank Carradine, newly acquired DT John Jenkins will line up at LDE, Davon Godchaux at NT and rookie Christian Wilkins at RDE. Sam Eguavoen at LOLB, Raekwon McMillan at LILB and Jerome Baker at RILB with and Charles Harris at ROLB. Xavien Howard and Eric Rowe are the starting CB’s with the safeties being Reshad Jones and Bobby McCain. That different enough for ya?!?!

On offense, recently traded for LT Julie’n Davenport makes his first start as a Miami Dolphin. Next to him at LG is rookie Michael Deiter. Veteran Daniel Kilgore starts at C with rookie Shaq Calhoun starting at RG. Jesse Davis will be the starter at RT. WR’s DeVante Parker and Jakeem Grant will be on the outside with Albert Wilson in the slot. Mike Gesicki will be the starting TE. Kenyan Drake will be the starting RB along with Kalen Ballage as the backup but I expect both backs to get to a similar workload. Mark Walton, Patrick Laird and Myles Gaskin will also get a sprinkle of touches, but more than likely we’ll only put 4 backs on the game day roster and that will include FB Chandler Cox.

It will be interesting to see how this young OL fares against the Ravens D. I’m not expecting a lot, it could be ugly at times.I’m not especially interested in watching QB Ryan Fitzpatric play, although hopefully Fitzmagic shows up on Sunday. Can DeVante Parker have a strong start? Probably not as I expect a strong dose of the run game. I don’t know if either Drake or Ballage will find much room but I expect close to 30 carries or more for us.

On defense I’m curious to see how all the parts work in the 3-4 base. Odd that Jenkins isn’t at the nose and Godchaux at DE. Hopefully we can generate some pass rush with some well disguised blitzes and keep the Ravens guessing as to where the rush is coming from. Harbaugh is an excellent coach and the Ravens a very disciplined team. We’ve seen the Ravens shred us for years, maybe the guys on the field for us will do better as most of them weren’t a part of that.

In summation, I just want us to look prepared, and I want us to be aggressive on defense. I expect a conservative game plan on offense to keep us in this game. Coach Flo won’t be caught sitting at the end of the bench by himself drawing up plays on his tablet during the game. I expect a low scoring affair, not too unlike what we saw last night from Chicago and Green Bay.

Dolphins 9 – Ravens 9

GO DOLPHINS!!!

    Hey Rob
    I’m living in Ocala now, right on pine Ave. I might start going back to my old place down 200 by the Lowe’s but today is still up in the air. I’m already running over an hour late

    No I wasn’t saying for us to go after AB, I was talking about how David keeps mentioning that we have the lowest cap at $105 when it’s actually over $160M including our dead cap. We’re trying to clear cap space for the future so we can add premium players over the next couple of years.
    ______________________________________________________
    keeps mentioning? i never said it ONE TIME!
    I never said the fins have a 105 million cap, i provided a link showing that is their payroll.

    dead money is NOT part of the payroll,’

    and cap is not payroll, You are getting the terms confused

  6. ocalarob says:

    This is why everyone hates New England, you have to think this was planned by all parties involved including drew rosenhaus. the league should look into this bs, oakland gave a 3rd and 5th for that guy. some sort of compensation should come from NE to Oak.
    they come off as a lunch pail team and then you hear about spying on teams, deflated balls and now this crap!

  8. ocalarob says:

    Las Vegas has put the over-under on Dolphins wins this season at 4 1/2. And apparently 74 percent of people wagering are betting the under.

    i heard Davis is moving to LT and davenport will play RT.

    Game Day snitches. May everyone’s big sexy tongues find true happiness today.

  12. Julio Jones signed a three-year contract extension for $66 million with $64 million guaranteed, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. This deal has no precedent in NFL history. The extension makes him the highest-paid receiver in football at $22 million annually on average, making him the first wideout to earn more than $20 million per year.

    Aqua end zones today at Hard Rock stadium

  17. Mike E. says:

    I just hope something goes wrong with AB and the Patriots. I don’t care much either way. What would actually be even better is AB getting lit up by one of our guys on a crossing route, even if the NFL fined that player. As long as there was no suspension, and AB was out for the season, that would be joyful

  18. BailBondMike says:

    At least we have a better record than the Bears, right now anyway.

  19. D says:

    I’ve had that Woodford before. It’s a great burbon

    • D says:

      I don’t know how you don’t investigate it. I was say prior to the cut, whomever gets him needs a colonoscopy type investigation

    • The Flying Pig says:

      Scheffter said on espn this morning that the Browns and other teams reached out to his agent yesterday and the deal was already done….slightly suspicious…they didn’t even field offers from other teams k owing he couldn’t play thismweek

  20. BailBondMike says:

    That game last night showed some really good QB play. They weren’t just throwing to wide open receivers. They were putting the ball right where it needed to be on covered receivers. This video doesn’t even show the 2 TD’s Ehlinger threw which if they were off by 6 inches they would have been incomplete.

  21. Mike E. says:

    SB – AB would have to stab someone, and there be absolutely indisputable evidence that he did in order to get AB kicked out. Anything like a fight with AB would be blamed on the Dolphins player. C’mon man

  22. wyoming85 says:

    I just want to see what happens when he forgets and calls Billycheck a cracker! 😉

  23. Ken says:

    Now I am willing to bet Cav that AB wins his grievance

  24. Rockphin says:

    It’s game day bitches!!

    GO DOLPHINS!!

  25. Rockphin says:

    So, I blew up the still last season swore never to brew Homeraide or drink that poison ever again.

    I was in the garage this morning and found some that I was using to kill weeds in the yard. 😉

    I took a little sip and well, one thing led to another and now I have to say HOWIE!! I AM CHANGING MY PREDICTION!

  27. Ken says:

    Forgot to see Howie back on the blog

  28. Rockphin says:

    Surprised Calhoun who has taken most ever snap at RG this offseason doesn’t dress today.

  48. sb7mvp says:

    I said this preseason that the run defense looked suspect and so far they are proving me right. Tighten up and prove me wrong.

  49. Mike E. says:

    Not having Tunsil is killing us!!!!! 😉

  50. Ken says:

    Tank for Tua

  51. steveccnv says:

    It’s going to be a looooong season.

  52. Ken says:

    Well that sucked

  53. sb7mvp says:

    Lol. The announcers just called Baltimore the new look ravens as if they havent had a run first based offense since ever.

  54. Mike E. says:

    Yeah, and this is why I fucking hate the Ravens, because we always manage to look like less than shit when we play them

  55. The Flying Pig says:

    Hey Dolphins
    Can you at least wait for me to buy a jersey before you start sucking so bad

  56. manitobafinfan says:

    TIme for som Fitzmagic 🙏

  57. Rockphin says:

    well, that was

  58. sb7mvp says:

    We look incredible

  59. Mike E. says:

    Welcome to Miami Fitztragic

  60. Ken says:

    That’s the Fitzpatrick we know

  61. manitobafinfan says:

    No no, I meant the Good Fitzmagic !!

  62. Mike E. says:

    Just saw the best visual of this game, the Florida ocean

  63. sb7mvp says:

    Record breaking QB Ryan Fitzpatrick.

  64. manitobafinfan says:

    WOW..

  65. Ken says:

    Wow we suck

  66. dloxahatchee says:

    Oh my

  67. sb7mvp says:

    I think I’ll find something else to do with my Sunday.

  68. Mike E. says:

    Florida heat really taking it’s toll on the Ravens. They look lethargic

  69. Ken says:

    Let the tanking begin

  70. dloxahatchee says:

    Ballage

  71. Ken says:

    Great series

  72. sb7mvp says:

    Please Defense make a big play

  73. Mike E. says:

    Wake with a sack and FF on Baker Mayfield

  74. wyoming85 says:

    Well Flores is definitely going to get to see if he has any quitters on the team!

  75. manitobafinfan says:

    Who is # 70 ? And why on two plays in a row is he not hitting anyone??

  76. manitobafinfan says:

    Holy make a sandwich in the pocket

  77. Ken says:

    Wow shit show

  78. Mike E. says:

    Keep telling me how awesome Minkah is . . . .

  79. sb7mvp says:

    That pass rush tho’

  80. Mike E. says:

    Anyone here still want to argue why we’re ranked #32?

  81. pheloniusphish says:

    May as well put Rosen in.

  82. The Flying Pig says:

    You don’t have to get blown out to tank

  83. pheloniusphish says:

    Y’all let them lose before slicing any wrists

  84. sb7mvp says:

    Get Gesicki with it!

  85. The Flying Pig says:

    Maybe Minkah should be playing safety

    • Mike E. says:

      Overrated no matter where he plays. I do think that maybe they should leave him at one spot, rather than be a jack of all trades and truly not a master of any of them.

  86. Mike E. says:

    Jesse Davis looking a less than average RG playing LT

  87. wyoming85 says:

  88. Mike E. says:

    This is just painful. We can’t do one positive thing.

  89. D says:

    Well at least the refs aren’t showing us sympathy lol

  90. D says:

    Lol Lamar Jackson looks like Marino

  91. Ken says:

    Who wanted to see our defense today?

  92. D says:

    Was that wiltz?

  93. Mike E. says:

    Ravens will probably lose 14-3 next week just because they aren’t playing us

  94. ocalarob says:

    I knew we shouldn’t have traded tunsil

  95. Mike E. says:

    I said it in one of my articles, Rowe is going to have it tough, he’s going to see a lot of action. He looks woefully not up to the task so far (as I predicted)

  96. Rockphin says:

    So, guys…..How are you all feeling about our chances right now?

    Too soon?
