A tale of two halves – Dolphins can’t finish, lose to Steelers 27-14. Dolphins are 0-7

Once again, the Dolphins managed to play some good football this week. The Dolphins actually dominated the 1st QTR leading 14-0, but as has been the case, good play for this team has been difficult to sustain. Talent and depth have something to do with it, but it also could be in part to a 1st year HC not having answers and unable to make adjustments. It’s likely a combination of both.

I’m sure some media people who cover our team will be hailing Minkah Fitzpatrick as taking revenge on his former team and playing unbelievable football in doing so. If you watched the game, the first INT was a true gift, a pass thrown by Fitz to TE Nick O’Leary that bounces off his pads into the waiting hands of Minkah Fitzpatrick. Couldn’t have been any easier unless it was thrown harder and and stuck in Minkah’s facemask. The next INT was just a desperation deep throw in which Minkah had deep coverage and ran underneath it for another easy INT, a pass thrown very poorly. Otherwise, Minkah was very quiet, didn’t do anything really and I hardly noticed him on the field to be honest.

Was James Connor imitating Ryan Fitzpatrick here?

I laughed pretty good when I saw Conner walking back to his sideline for assistance to remove this large chunk of turf that got stuck in his facemask after being tackled. I woke up my wife but she also laughed once she finally listened to me that it was a funny thing to see. I needed the levity, I want our team to win, and I enjoy when we’re winning. We play the Jets who have looked heinous lately. We need guys healthy to beat the Jets. X can’t play a half and then go out with an injury leaving a defensive backfield full of Nik Needham, Ken Webster, Ryan Lewis, Chris Lammons, etc. No offense to any of these fine young players but they wouldn’t be on the field other than ST’s for just about any other NFL team.

I want to beat the Jets and damn the record! I want to see Gase tormented by us, I think he’s a cocky dude who needs a little humiliation, and we can supply just that with a win next Sunday. I want to hear audio all week after the game of Adam Gase trying to explain how they lost to us and making excuses as usual. It never seems to be his fault. Sam Darnold did better last year in his rookie season w/o Adam Gase than he is doing this season with him. The great offensive guru that he is.

Did anyone last night not enjoy Allen Hurns pinball his way into the endzone last night? Was that not sumpin? I have a feeling we’ll be trying to shake up Sam Darnold next week. If you think you saw at least 3 too many blitzes against the Steelers, there may be more next week. What scares me is Gase loves the short game and the screens, and that’s what burns a blitz. When too many guys are on the wrong side of the LOS it’s easy for a short pass to turn into a long one. I hope Patrick Graham and Brian Flores keep that in mind next week!

    A: Flores was so obvious in his tank on that one single play last Sunday, that he was forced to call a good game against the Jest
    now with the win it appears that steelers play was not intentional…….

    WAIT!………… THAT’S EVEN WORSE!!!!!!

  19. ocalarob says:

    I sure hope Preston Williams is allright, he’s having an MRI today.

  20. ocalarob says:

    great game by gesicki

  21. wyoming85 says:

    There is the answer to your question Piggy

  22. ocalarob says:

    The heat crushed Houston last night, i think it was 46 – 14 at the end of the first quarter, ended up winning by 28 pts.

    5-1 next stop Denver tuesday night!
