Browns offense too much for Dolphins – Dolphins fall 41-24 and record goes to 2-9

Yeah, Landry had a big game against his former team, but the story of the day for the Browns was their run game. Nick Chubb punished the Dolphins all day long along with a sprinkling from Kareem Hunt. All in all, the Browns offense was just too much for the Dolphins depleted defense. Between Chubb and Hunt they combined for 143 yards rushing on 29 carries good for over 4.9 YPC. Landry caught 2 TD passes and finished with 10 receptions and 148 yards. He was covered by Ryan Lewis, Ken Crawley and Nik Needham. The Browns had the ball for over 35 minutes compared to the Dolphins 24. Honestly, it didn’t even seem that close.

The Dolphins were down 28-0 late in the 1st half but managed to score 17 unanswered points. That was really as close as it got though as the Browns pulled away and won easily 41-24. TE Mike Gesicki caught his first career TD pass, which is really surprising that it’s taken this long, but good for him. DeVante Parker continues to stay on the field and produce, catching 6 passes for 91 yards, although some of them were in garbage time. Allen Hurns also was involved often and was tied for 2nd with 7 targets with Wilson and Gesicki. Wilson managed just 33 yards on 6 catches. No threat of a run game shrinks the space for Wilson to operate and it shows. He just doesn’t have that quick twitch explosiveness and is easily caught up with each time he gets his hands on the ball.

Raekwon McMillan returned and looked slow and ineffective in his return. He was a step slow to the edge a few times and wasn’t tackling well either. Hopefully he will improve as he gets back in game shape. HEY!!! Charles Harris got half a sack today! What a terror off the edge he was today! Van Ginkel made his first appearance and made a real nice ST’s tackle, a one arm sweep that upended the Browns kick returner. I have been very pleased with the play of our young secondary but today was a tough matchup. They were out there a lot and had a tough time with both Jarvis Landry, OBJ and the duo in the backfield Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt, all who are receiving threats. We know that most likely these guys will be depth guys next season at best, but as you can see, depth is huge in the NFL because guys get hurt so often. These kids have been working hard and appear to play hard for their coach, so much props to them.

The Dolphins play the Philadelphia Eagles at home next week, a difficult matchup once again. The Eagles are pretty banged up, RB’s Jordan Howard and Darren Sproles are both out but Howard may be able to play by next week, Sproles is on IR. Jay Ajayi signed this week to once again join the Eagles. No doubt he will have a little extra sumpin’ playing his former team, although the guy that ran him out of town is no longer with the tea, (Gase). The Eagles will be desperate for a win to remain in the playoff hunt at 5-6, losing today to the Seahawks in a tough defensive battle 17-9. Miles Sanders will be the guy if Jordan Howard once again can’t go.

Wins and losses don’t really matter all that much in the scheme of things, just playing well and improving are prudent. Sunday there were a lot of penalties, and that didn’t help the Dolphins any. The lack of a run game has been a killer all season as the leagues worst rushing team by quite a margin. The Dolphins average the fewest rush attempts per game at 20 per game and have just 603 yards for a pathetic 3.0 yards per carry. I know our O-line is somewhat makeshift but run blocking is effort and will mostly, so I’d like to see this unit improve in this area. Durham Smythe has been tagged as a plus run blocking TE and I just haven’t seen it. It’s hard to see him all the time, but when I do, he’s not winning. Evan Boehm who has played both C and either G position hasn’t been opening up any space either. Really, no need to focus on any one player, no one on the O-line is getting it done and our dream of FB Chandler Cox being a plow in the run game hasn’t materialized. Truth be told, he’s hardly been used, and when he has, it’s yielded poor results.

KR/WR Jakeem was injured today and was seen in a walking boot. That also takes some sizzle out of the return game which is a shame. This leaves just Marcus Sherels who has been pretty underwhelming. The Dolphins needed that electricity that Grant brings so this one hurts. The Eagles have a physical defense that will challenge the Dolphins next week. The Eagles are a top 10 defense in some categories, such as yards per game at 323. They are midpack giving up an average of 23 points. Their biggest problem is they’re only scoring about 23 PPG, so that’s why they sit under .500. Two seasons ago when Carson Wentz was healthy they were scoring over 28 PPG.

As far as the future this season, things I’d like to see. I love what Fitz has done this season, he’s been a class guy and brings passion and effort each and every game. At some point though, I want to see Josh Rosen again. It could be in 2 or 3 games from now, but I want to see it. I want to see some passion, some fight from him. Does he really want to start, does he want to be the future of this team, or is he content holding the clipboard and collecting paychecks? This is what I’d like to find out. I’d like Flores to talk with Rosen and tell him that’s the plan, but unless he chomps at the bit and shows it he will be holding that effing clipboard or worse get traded again or cut. I know many of you have written Rosen off but I’m not doing that quite yet. He has talent, I want to see him use it. I want him to work his ass off learning the offense and studying how to read defenses and identify what he sees on the field. This is my hope going forward for him. I think it’s clear that mythical pass rusher we’re looking for is not on the roster, but it would be nice for someone to show a little something going into next season.

GO DOLPHINS!!!

  1. bailbondmike says:

    Wyoming, I agree about Fromm. For me, it is all about his arm or lack there of. I was really high on him last year and was stomping my foot. He lost his top 2 targets from last year and has struggled to match what he did last year.

  2. stangerx says:

    Where do you think our first pick will be?

    Stanger — #6
    Wyoming85 – #3
    Phish –- #2
    Kong –- #3
    D ——- #4
    🐷 – #32

  3. Rockphin says:

    I think Minkah’s issue was Future money. Top rated corners get more money than nickel corners who make more money than safeties top safeties make more money than guys with less stats playing linebacker. For him I believe someone was whispering in his ear about stats stats stats equal money

    He didn’t want to have to take a beating dropping down into the box on plays where there were no stats to be had

    • Tim Knight says:

      I think it was about that too and said as much when it all went down. But I don’t think he and his camp were right about that. Troy Polamalu lined up in a lot of different ways and he was very successful making pro bowls, all-pro and money.

    Guess you better check who you want to bitch slap!

  7. Mike E. says:

    Fuck Minkah that selfish doucher. None of the reasons he wanted out of here were good for the team.

    • Rockphin says:

      Look man, Mama said……..

    • Tim Knight says:

      I don’t want him on the team if he doesn’t want buy in either but I was just talking about what I think the reasoning was. And as I said I don’t think they were right.

      But now in the interview process with prospects our front office is going to need to ask players about being multiple and if they’re good with that. Later round guys won’t be an issue because they’ll do anything to make the team. It’s the top prospects that you have to be sure about.

  8. wyoming85 says:

  9. Mike E. says:

    Yeah, there’s nothing wrong with a 2nd year player who hasn’t done shit in the NFL wanting to get off the team that drafted him to get better stats somewhere else because he won’t be taking as many difficult physical snaps in the box. Nope, nuthin’ wrong with dat

    • Tim Knight says:

      Nobody is saying there is nothing wrong with it. I brought up Troy Polamalu as an example. He lined up all over the place – in the box, blitzed and dropped deep. They used to say he was like having an extra LB on the field at times.

  10. Mike E. says:

    I’m not knocking on you Tim,. I just can’t stand any excuses made on his behalf. There’s no justifying what he did in my eyes. He had no regard for the team or the coaches, it was ME, ME, ME

    • Tim Knight says:

      No worries! Like I said I don’t want him on my team if he doesn’t want to be here. I’ve moved on from him as a Dolphin because he’s not. LOL

  11. wyoming85 says:

    Man it’s a tough crowd today!
    All that giving of thanks, must have gave ya’ll the swamp ass? 😉

  12. Mike E. says:

    Wyo – I’m the resident curmudgeon, I need to inject some meanness here

  13. wyoming85 says:

    • Tim Knight says:

      That’s what I’m interested in, the type of players we target because we don’t play a standard defense. We might find guys like that in the mid rounds who fit a role. That’s the Patriots model.

      • stangerx says:

        Yep Tim — and cause the Pats pick dudes that might not match up as the every down stud of the world guy at whatever position….. they are looking for what others are not. Draft graders crush them every year, but yet…..

      • Tim Knight says:

        Vince Biegel is the perfect example. He loves his role. Next up Van Ginkel. In 2020 I think we’ll add two more guys like that in FA/Draft but more blue chip. That can change the entire defense.

  14. wyoming85 says:

  15. wyoming85 says:

    EFFORT!!!!

  16. The Flying Pig says:

    Alabama has 2 good tackles this year

  17. TryPod says:

    It’s as if no one wants to play defense today.. the scores in these games are ridiculous.

  18. wyoming85 says:

    D Brown wrecking Alabama!

  19. wyoming85 says:

    Your Picks:
    Round 1 Pick 3: Joe Burrow, QB, LSU (A+)
    Round 1 Pick 22: Trey Adams, OT, Washington (B)
    Round 1 Pick 25: Tyler Biadasz, C, Wisconsin (B+)
    Round 2 Pick 3: DAndre Swift, RB, Georgia (A)
    Round 2 Pick 29: Prince Tega Wanogho, OT, Auburn (B+)
    Round 3 Pick 3: Lavert Hill, CB, Michigan (A+)
    Round 4 Pick 19: Brandon Jones, FS/SS, Texas (A+)
    Round 5 Pick 21: Carter Coughlin, DE/OLB, Minnesota (A+)
    Round 6 Pick 3: Patrick Johnson, DE/OLB, Tulane (A+)
    Round 6 Pick 21: Tyler Johnson, WR, Minnesota (A+)
    Round 7 Pick 23: Denzel Mims, WR, Baylor (A)

  20. bailbondmike says:

    That Auburn DT Brown is a monster!

  21. TryPod says:

    It’s not that I want Auburn to win, it’s that I want Nick Saban to lose. Pretty much how I feel about Michigan-Ohio State and Stanford-Notre Dame- I want Nick Saban to lose those, too.

  22. bailbondmike says:

    Damn, what a blunder to end the game Saban!

  23. Tim Knight says:

    I think Justin Herbert or Joe Burrow will be our targets for a young, potential franchise QB. However I think Josh Rosen gets another opportunity this year. But he doesn’t have much left to work with. Not only are we a transition roster, we’re also very banged up.

  24. wyoming85 says:

    Zach Moss is on Primetime for you easterners to see!

  25. Ken says:

    Rivalry weekend was something of a bust with the exception of Alabama-Auburn every game was a blowout

  26. Ken says:

    LSU may score 70 plus at this rate

  27. wyoming85 says:

    Hubbard @ Oklahoma ST is an interesting back also!

  28. Tim Knight says:

    I would not be surprised if we start Rosen tomorrow or pull Fitz early if we’re not moving the ball. We’re 2-9. LOL

  29. manitobafinfan says:

    outside the obvious names in Draft and FA I think the Dolphins will like: Khalid Kareem, Curtis Weaver, Kwity Paye, Bradlee Anae, Jason Strowbridge

    Hey MIKE E : which of the names above would better suit Minkah ?? 🤡

  30. wyoming85 says:

  31. The Flying Pig says:

    Let’s go Browns, let’s go Patriots 🤢, let’s go Redskins, Let’s go Giants

    Im actually indifferent in jets v bengals
    I don’t think we can get the number 1 no matter what

    But I would really love that number 2 pick

  32. The Flying Pig says:

    At the moment we have the
    3rd, 22nd, 25th and 34th picks in the draft

    Don’t overlook that early 2nd round pick – I’m targeting RB with that pick
    The odds of at least one of Swift, Dobbins or Taylor being there are pretty high
    Also the odds of one of the top 2 centers being there seem high to

    We can build up front and maybe nab a QB too
    Then look to RB with that 34th
    Or even trade up with our second second rounder

    I think we can add a very good RB this offseason
    It’s a good draft for RBS
    We have a ton of picks

    And the good thing about RBs is that often contribute out of the gate

    ________

    If cincy wins and beats us there you have the number one pick if we lose out the last 5.
    the skins beat us and the jets will have a better record beating us the second time out, and we still play the Giants.

  34. ocalarob says:

    i believe we should trade back with our early pick if the deal is right, say a number 1 next year and a #2 this year and next and maybe trade back 7 or 8 spots

    • stangerx says:

      Trade backs should always be considered, but that is a big haul for 7 or 8 spots. We’d have to be like #2 or #3, which yeah we could be.

  35. naplesfan2010 says:

    Clemson has now recorded a seven-game streak of 30-point wins to tie the longest streak in the AP Poll era (since 1936), per ESPN Stats & Info, matching Houston in 2011 and Michiganin 1976.

    Clemson held a 12th straight opponent below 300 yards of total offense to open the season. Per ESPN Stats & Info, Clemson is the first team in searchable data dating back to1996 to open a season by holding its first 12 opponents to 300 or fewer yards.

    Ohio State had held its first 11 opponents this year under 300 yards but gave up 396 yards at Michigan on Saturday.

    Clemson has now held 15 consecutive opponents to 20 or fewer points for the first time since a 31-game streak across the 1937-40 seasons under Hall of Fame coaches Jess Neely and Frank Howard.

    Clemson held a 10th consecutive opponent below 200 passing yards.

    Clemson gained 527 yards and reached 500 yards in a seventh straight game for the first time since an 11-game streak to end the 2015 season.

    Clemson (6,501) has now posted the eighth 6,000-yard season in Clemson history. All but one of the eight 6,000-yard seasons have come in Dabo Swinney’s head coaching tenure.

  37. naplesfan2010 says:

    future draftees?
    Trevor Lawrence has now thrown a touchdown pass in 22 consecutive games. His current streak is the longest active streak in the country. (Note: UCF’s McKenzie Milton had a 24-game streak prior to suffering an injury in November 2018 that will likely preclude him from playing in 2019).

    Lawrence’s 18 consecutive completions tied ACC single-game records held by Virginia’s Michael Rocco (vs.Miami in 2012) and North Carolina’s Mitch Trubisky (vs. James Madison in 2016).

    Lawrence entered the contest having thrown 111 consecutive pass attempts without an interception, dating to the first quarter at Louisville on Oct. 19, a streak he pushed to 147.

    Since the start of the second quarter at Louisville, Lawrence is 112-of-147 for 1,564 yards with 19 touchdowns and no interceptions for a passer rating of 202.4 in that span.

    Travis Etienne’s 53rd TD of his career broke the ACC record for career rushing touchdowns held by Pitt’s James Conner. He also broke Conner’s ACC record for career total touchdowns (56).

    Etienne (342) also passed Conner (338) as the highest-scoring non-kicker in ACC history

    STILL CELEBRATING FAU’S 34-17 win over Southern Miss!
    OWLS WILL HOST U.A.B. @ Schnellenberger Field on Saturday @ 1:30 PM for the C-USA Championship Game. I believe it will be televised live by the CBS Sports Network.
    —————————-
    TWO people seen at the FAU-USM game:
    #1) Frank Gore was present to announce that HIS OLDEST SON (also a running back) has just committed to FAU!!!
    #2) Devin SINGLETARY, Gore’s team mate at Buffalo, was also there to sign autographs FOR FREE to all who wanted one!! He was swarmed by young & old alike!!! He is the GREATEST PLAYER IN FAU HISTORY, so far!
    ——————-
    NO TALK OF “TANKING” was heard anywhere. How refreshing!

  40. wyoming85 says:

  41. New Age says:

    I’m hoping for pick #2 and either Young or Burrow. We still have a strong shot. This team is talent starved especially after all the injuries. We should be an easy win against both the Eagle and Pats. Dan Jones has more talent to work with and Dalton can beat us if either team really wants the win. I’m afraid on the second Jets game. I’d love to win it but it may be Gase’s most important game this year. We exposed him and he’s a petty little turd. Watch him try to run the score up if given the chance,

    I’d like the wins but I don’t see them happening. The Browns really exposed how little Flores has to work with. Rosen deserves a second shot since we’re completely out of the hunt and Fitz hasn’t brought the wins. He’s taught the players a lot but we really are talent starved. I think he’s done an amazing job.

    QB wise- Tua(later) possibly or Burrow. Everyone else has huge concerns. Herbert has been terrible. Same with Eason, and Fromm. I’d rather just build up the team for an average QB like the Rams, Bears, 49ers, etc have done than waste an early pick on anyone not named Tua or Burrow. Everyone else looks like another Trubisky and who needs that?

    • wyoming85 says:

      As I play with the draft simulators, I have come to the same conclusion!
      We don’t need another developmental QB!
      We already have one!

      The only other thing I would add. If the front Office see’s one that is a great get then I’d be ok with it!

      his draft is so wide open it could go any which way!

      • New Age says:

        I have to problem with Rosen if we can’t get Burrow. I don;t see a cleaner QB pick after that and Tua is scary. He really is snake-bit or fragile. I’m not sure I could go before our third pick in round one for him. We just are so bad with QB picks over the years.

      • New Age says:

        No problem not to.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      I’m pretty much with you on the #2 and those two players
      Really I want young
      But if he goes one and we get Burrow…it’s still a great pick
      If we end up with 3 I think you have to consider Tua

      I know he has an injury history
      But we have Rosen under contract for another 2 years
      And we can let each of those two fight to earn the starting job

      • New Age says:

        I’ve really considered it (Tua at 3). If I wasn’t a Miami fan I’d feel more strongly for Tua but our QB decisions the past few decades are haunting . I’d probably need about 50 doctors opinions lol

    • Ken says:

      Herbert has been very good this year. He had one bad game but overall he has made significant strides especially in completion %

  42. bailbondmike says:

    Tua is injury prone. Look what his backup did yesterday. Almost like they didn’t miss him with that OL, stud RB and 3 WR’s who will go in the top 2-3 rounds in the draft.

    • New Age says:

      That is my big concern with him. 3 injuries that required surgery in college. That’s not a small concern. Even Pat White was more durable.

  43. stangerx says:

    10 point dogs today at home.
    Guess that is about right.
    I’d still take the Phins though.

  44. bailbondmike says:

    If we are picking #2 or 3, I might offer Bengals our 1st, Rosen and our late 2nd pick to move up and take Burrow. I feel that way cause I don’t think we will be in position to trade up next year for Lawrence unless we give up a boatload of picks. I would rather have Lawrence over Burrow due to arm strength as Burrow tends to float his long balls. Not sure if it’s lack of arm strength or he is just trying to put to much touch on it. Every time I have watched Herbert this year, he has been, MEH to say the least. To me Herbert is a poor man’s Stafford who was only good when he had Megatron.

  45. stangerx says:

    Eagles inactives today: Sidney Jones, Jordan Howard, Daeshon Hall, Nate Sudfeld, Shareef Miller, Matt Pryor, Nate Herbig.

    Least Jordan is still out.

    Trade backs should always be considered, but that is a big haul for 7 or 8 spots. We’d have to be like #2 or #3, which yeah we could be.

    Reply
    the first pick is worth 3000, the 9th pick is worth 1350, that would be 1650 pts to make up after we get there 9th pick, a number one pick in the following year has a value of a number 2 pick this year so it’s really not such a big haul.

    • stangerx says:

      I didn’t check the chart, but do know that #1 #1 has a huge value. But sounds like that 1650 would be worth like the #8 or #7 this year, which yeah obviously could get get you a #2 in this one and a first in the next.

  51. naplesfan2010 says:

    Put Rosen in.

  52. naplesfan2010 says:

    Put the Stanford RB in.

  53. D says:

    My God how was that not a PI

  54. naplesfan2010 says:

    I do not want anything to do with Tua. Never have.
    He is fragile and mainly successful because of who surrounds him and his coach.

    • D says:

      Disagree, but I do feel his play style is likely to get him injured. That said if he learns to play safer ala Russell Wilson he could avoid injuries in the NFL. His success though is credit to himself. He has great players around him yes, and good coaching, but they are not the same team without him.

      Burrow has possibly better players around him and no one it slighting him like that. Overall I’m not a big fan of Tua, but if we got him at a value selection, he definitely is talented enough to deserve it

  55. naplesfan2010 says:

    Haack ith a 27 yd punt.
    Do we need a punter now, too?
    He shanks too many.

  56. naplesfan2010 says:

    I have Cleveland Pitt and TB Jax on TV.

    Any suggestions for where I can see the Dolphins game?
    Not that it will be worth anything.

  57. naplesfan2010 says:

    Ryan Tannehill 6/7 61 1TD

  58. manitobafinfan says:

    If our OL is (not) gonna block like this all day , I don’t wanna see Rosen put in

  59. naplesfan2010 says:

    Russell Wilson is tough, has taken a pounding and still healthy. He is stocky. Tua is slim in the hips and torso and plays in a “hit me hard” style. Wilson is very hard to get a good shot at.

    I do not see any points of comparison in them at all. I see Tua as Mariota #2.

  60. manitobafinfan says:

    Naples: even with Tua 90% of their offence was YAC. I won’t say I don’t want Tua.. but I don’t think he is the second coming , or a sure fire franchise QB either .. I would prefer Burrow

    • naplesfan2010 says:

      agreed

      • manitobafinfan says:

        Tua and Burrow are the only QBs I have watched at any length this year …

        Here is my reasoning of why the signs point to us getting Burrow…

        Wife and I went to NOLA earlier this year

        One of our favourite shows, Queen of the South, is based in NOLA this season

        Watched new Lady and the Tramp the other day , it’s filmed in NOLA…

        It’s a lock 🏉🤡

  61. naplesfan2010 says:

    What is a 2-yard holding penalty? I thought they were all 10 yds.

  62. naplesfan2010 says:

    I really think Wentz is over rated. I would not want him as my franchise QB. Goff either TBH.

  63. stangerx says:

    Don’t wish OD popped in during the game? He told us all abut the OL? 🙂

    Vinatieri missed again, nother FG. He’s done. In his defense it was 55 yds out.

  66. naplesfan2010 says:

    N/M on Tannehil … just gave up a strip sack fumble.

  67. naplesfan2010 says:

    glad to see Wilson motoring. Sure wish his career is not over.

  68. ocalarob says:

    they have to recognize those blitz better and have a safety balance to go to

  69. naplesfan2010 says:

    Why throw for 7 on 3rd and 11?

  70. stangerx says:

    That was Fiiiiiiiiing beautiful

  71. New Age says:

    Ken,

    After 4 years, I’d expect some improvement from Herbert. He’ s not improved much in decision making. His performance in games has been mostly subpar. He had 174 yrs and one TD against a really average Oregon State team as his final home game. That’s not an anomaly either. He just hasn’t been the difference maker on that team and nothing showed it more than that ugly loss to ASU or the ugly win against WSU where CJ Verdell carried the team…not Herbert. As a 40 game starter, he hasn’t elevated Oregon to the place they should be given his physical traits.

    The exciting guy I saw beat ASU and Utah in 2016 and throw 6 TDs against Cal just hasn’t made the strides you’d want to see at this point. He has all the physical traits to dominate…and hasn’t. He’s done poorly in both bowls he’s played in and Oregon has a really soft schedule playing in the PAC-12. If he can beat the Utes next week I may change my mind but nothing he’s done this year changes what I saw last year….an inconsistent QB who won;t be a difference maker in the NFL.

    He compares extremely poorly to Big Ben. Rapistberger elevated his team to national prominence as a small school. Herbert is struggling to put up 200 yards to a 5-7 OSU team. No comparison at all once you look past their sizes.

  72. naplesfan2010 says:

    HOLY SHIT. a 43 yd TD on 4th and 4? Damn that is great coaching.
    I guess the pass to Laird was a set up.

  73. ocalarob says:

    parker

  74. naplesfan2010 says:

    Thnx Wyo … I cannot see the game, only the play by play, which is why I asked.

  75. manitobafinfan says:

    That was a great job by Parker

  76. naplesfan2010 says:

    Bengals leading jests YAY

  77. wyoming85 says:

    Was that the Gink?

  78. stangerx says:

    Why the heck were the Eagles going for it on 4th and 2? Are they worried?

  79. son of a son of a shula says:

    Happy Birthday Piggi, love you buddy

  80. manitobafinfan says:

  84. manitobafinfan says:

    Wow that got blown up

  85. manitobafinfan says:

    Good challenge

  86. stangerx says:

    Hope we win this challenge, but think we lose.

  87. The Flying Pig says:

    Probably not gonna win this

  88. CavalierKong says:

    Flores let his emotions get the better of him. The NFL is not overturning these calls.

  89. pheloniusphish says:

    Gonna win it

  90. manitobafinfan says:

    Woot woot

  91. The Flying Pig says:

  93. pheloniusphish says:

  94. The Flying Pig says:

  95. manitobafinfan says:

  96. The Flying Pig says:

  97. naplesfan2010 says:

    I love this coach.

  98. CavalierKong says:

    LMAO!

  99. pheloniusphish says:

    Alrighty then

  100. Tim Knight says:

    Yeah we’re tanking!!! LOL

  101. stangerx says:

    Guess they ran the practice on that formation in the Saban Bubble.

  102. New Age says:

    Looking like the better team today. WOO HOO!!

    Happy Birthday Piggy!!!

  103. Tim Knight says:

    I love that we can be a pain in the ass for teams trying to make the playoffs. 😉

  104. The Flying Pig says:

  105. olddolphan says:

    AWESOME!!!! TOTALLY AWESOME!!!!!!
    Rosen congratulated Haack.
    Haack’s Response?? –“Looks like I’m now the second string quarterback!!!!!!”

  106. wyoming85 says:

  108. naplesfan2010 says:

    dammit … almost held them out. We need DBs and edge rushers.

  109. CavalierKong says:

    I can’t wait until we get some pass rush, lol.

  110. CavalierKong says:

    That formation TD with the punter throwing a TD to the kicker will live forever in NFL history. That was just awesome.

  111. Philip Bijeau says:

    Getting sick of hearing Philly fans today. Can’t wait for the Dolphins to improve so tix are hard to get.

  112. CavalierKong says:

    Niners v Ravens has been a great game so far. Could be our SB preview.

  113. The Flying Pig says:

  114. manitobafinfan says:

    Nice plays by Fitz and Gesicki

  115. CavalierKong says:

    Unleash the TEs!

  116. manitobafinfan says:

    Parker is in BEAST MODE today

  117. wyoming85 says:

    Doink!

  118. naplesfan2010 says:

    Shit now that is how to answer an opp9nent’s TD drive.

  119. CavalierKong says:

    Hell yeah! Keep ’em nervous and stay in this game!! And f*&ing Parker has arrived.

  120. The Flying Pig says:

    I didn’t see anything close to a push off by Parker, don’t know what the DB or announcers are inferring

    It doesn’t look like Parker touched the db

  121. naplesfan2010 says:

    now 2 problems.. should not have tried the onsides kick … got too cute.
    and Sanders missing the PAT is a direct result of him and haack still jacked and distracted from the TD they got for us.

  122. Randy says:

    I thought Parker had a good year in 2016 in terms of showing some toughness and making hard catches. The next year it was kinda there too, but he’s just never been able to stay healthy and be consistent. I think he has it in him to be a 1000 yard/8 TD kinda guy. He’s just gotta stay on the field and play big. He’s got nice length and radius. When he plays soft, he’s not nearly as good.

  123. stangerx says:

    Bengals beating the Yets 17-6. Interesting.

  124. wyoming85 says:

    Happy Birthday Pig!

  125. wyoming85 says:

    Shit!

  126. manitobafinfan says:

    Aquaman !!

  127. New Age says:

    Jets are going to be the first win for two different teams this year LMAO!

  128. manitobafinfan says:

    Gesicki!!!

  129. The Flying Pig says:

    Get sexy!

  130. naplesfan2010 says:

    Gesicki has arrived. We’re watching the kid grow up right before our eyes.
    Hurns is a pro.

  131. CavalierKong says:

    WooHoooooooo!

  132. naplesfan2010 says:

    Happy Birthday Piggy.

  133. CavalierKong says:

    You can’t stop Gesicki, you can only hope to contain him.

  134. wyoming85 says:

    I guess I’m going to have to figure out how to spell “G’s” name!

  135. stangerx says:

    Tmrw’s article will be all about Gesicki. 🙂

  136. CavalierKong says:

    Happy B-day, 🐷!

  137. The Flying Pig says:

    Carson Wentz has thrown some really bad passes

  138. stangerx says:

    If we keep with this everyone at the LOS D…… gonna need another shutdown corner.

  139. wyoming85 says:

    Philly’s got a punter? 😉

  140. naplesfan2010 says:

    Dang right Mike G.

  141. The Flying Pig says:

    Gesicki leap!

  142. The Flying Pig says:

    OMG Parker!

  143. manitobafinfan says:

    Laird TD woot woot

  144. wyoming85 says:

    A rushing TD???????????????????????

  145. The Flying Pig says:

    🎶🎶🎶and when you say Miami🎶🎶🎶

  146. manitobafinfan says:

    Nice coxblocking as well lol

  147. naplesfan2010 says:

    Laird and Gaskin look good today.

  148. wyoming85 says:

    WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂

  149. naplesfan2010 says:

    Don’t know why we went for 2 but I love it. (I guess it means they can’t win with 2 FGs?)

  150. CavalierKong says:

    Can we just stick with Laird and Gaskin the rest of the season and keep Ballage on the f^*&ing bench where he belongs please?

  151. stangerx says:

    Laird is a Pats kinda of guy….. maybe a new Phins guy as well.

  152. Mike E. says:

    Parker has been nothing short of amazing today. Unbelievable

  153. naplesfan2010 says:

    Vinatieri has a FG blocked for a TD. This is a nightmare season for him.

  154. naplesfan2010 says:

    Tannehill with a 40 yd TD.

  155. The Flying Pig says:

    Guice is helping the redskins win

  156. The Flying Pig says:

    Watch this run by Guice

  157. manitobafinfan says:

    Ravens beat 9ers

  158. Mike E. says:

    This is the DeVante I dreamed he could be

  159. The Flying Pig says:

    Can’t believe we are going to win this one

  160. CavalierKong says:

    Parker

  161. The Flying Pig says:

    Not so sexy in that one

  162. manitobafinfan says:

    ST player if the week Jason Sanders

  163. wyoming85 says:

    Fist pump for the win?

  164. naplesfan2010 says:

    A gut punching drive for the Dolphins. Great coaching.

  165. CavalierKong says:

    Good to have Sanders back in form. Big kick. This game is ours to lose now.

  166. New Age says:

    Hell Yeah!!! We got them!!!

  167. The Flying Pig says:

    Draft position or not

    We don’t lose on my birthday!

  168. naplesfan2010 says:

    A. Colbert on the pass defense for us? He’s like a 5th string DB.

  169. The Flying Pig says:

    What a terrific play by Webster, whoever he is…

  170. naplesfan2010 says:

    C’mon Defense.

  171. wyoming85 says:

    Catch.
    Come on D!!!!

  172. bookman11 says:

    Just got here. Happy Birthday Piggy

  173. bookman11 says:

    What a great day today regardless of outcome

  174. bookman11 says:

    Gesicki and Parker doing what we always hoped

  175. manitobafinfan says:

    Nice job Rowe

  176. CavalierKong says:

    Thank you, Wentz, Should have thrown it away. Now it takes an onside kick + for us to lose.

  177. New Age says:

    I don’t think Wentz has played terrible today. Some terrible throws but an overall decent performance for an average QB. I think the Eagles have been outcoached though.

  178. wyoming85 says:

    We don’t try to run do we?
    3 runs and a punt puts the clock at 50 sec?

  179. bookman11 says:

    Lol, on a day where the Dolphins could gain on draft position (except for the Giants) they win, potentially

  180. naplesfan2010 says:

    ok so we must get at least one first down, right?

  181. CavalierKong says:

    Great win!!!!

  182. naplesfan2010 says:

    smart to put our punt returner up there for the on side kickoff.

  183. wyoming85 says:

    At least we don’t stubbornly try to run it when we can’t anymore!

  184. The Flying Pig says:

    The redskins are about to lose

    😞

  185. wyoming85 says:

    That was a nice present!
    I get to make the 2 Cowboy fans thank me for this! 🙂

  186. bookman11 says:

    Wow, nice road win.. lol

  187. CavalierKong says:

    LOL, heart stopping end when that ball bounced up.

  188. manitobafinfan says:

    Good looking win .. I expected Philly to roll over us …. loving our coach 👍👍👍

  189. naplesfan2010 says:

    Eags 5-7
    Dolphins 3-9

    That’s kinda close to the same, no?

  190. ElephantRider says:

    Maybe Fins won back a couple of our old posters that ran off to be Philly fans today! LMAO

    Fuck em Fins!
    FTW
    GO FINS

  191. stangerx says:

    Wonder what our power ranking will be next week. Guess #32 is gone from now on. 🙂

  192. The Flying Pig says:

    Washington hangs on for the win!

  193. manitobafinfan says:

    Redskins held on for win

  194. Mike E. says:

    Easily the most satisfying game of the year to watch. Wow!!! Fuck Rosen, this was awesome! lol

  195. The Flying Pig says:

    Rejoice…lol

  196. Mike E. says:

    ……………………….🌮……………

  197. Ken says:

    Well I didn’t expect that

  198. stangerx says:

    You’ll see it again down the road, but here is the final from before this game.
    —————————————-
    Where do you think our first pick will be?

    Stanger — #6
    Wyoming85 – #3
    Phish –- #2
    Kong –- #3
    D ——- #4
    🐷 – #32
    OD — #3

  199. Ken says:

    I love the win but almost bittersweet with Cincinnati and Redskins winning

  200. naplesfan2010 says:

    Wash, Cincy, TB, and Tennessee all won so that is all great.
