2020 Season – Week 2 – Bills @ Dolphins

No pictures necessary. I couldn’t find half our defense on Sunday. It was the first game after a very limited preseason with no games and not nearly enough practice time. I need to temper my disappointment. Once again, the team that so many have written off after the numerous COVID-19 opt outs and the defections from the team in free agency, it all comes down to the Patriots can win with Belichick and just about anybody. I didn’t fear Cam Newton the QB, I feared Cam Newton the RB. Andy Dalton scares me more passing the football than Cam Newton, but Cam didn’t beat us passing, the run pass option beat us. Time of possession: Patriots 35 minutes – Dolphins 25 minutes. That partly explains the low offensive output although the officials near the end of the game made sure it stayed that way by not calling either defensive holding or what I thought was defensive pass interference in the end zone against TE Mike Gesicki by Patriots DB Joejuan Williams with 1:35 left. We probably weren’t going to win the game but you hate to have a turnover and lose possession on a play that was clearly a defensive foul. Anyway, the fact is we got beat. We got handled by a simple game plan that we had no answer for. We knew they were doing it, and we couldn’t stop it. All the defensive players we brought in may as well have been still playing for NE (Van Noy, Roberts), CLE (Ogbah), BUF (Lawson), PHI (Grugier-Hill) because they were invisible on Sunday. We need more from these guys.

Again, the good news is it’s only one game and we face a relatively similar threat this week in the Bills with Josh Allen. Allen has shredded us in the past running all over us so we do face a familiar issue, knowing what they can do and then stopping it. This offseason, Buffalo picked up WR Stefon Diggs and paired him with speedy former Ravens WR John Brown. Devin Singletary is OK, not a guy that really scares you and Zack Moss will be their goal line threat. Allen running scares me more than either Bills RB. If it seems like I’m ignoring our offensive ineptitude, I’m going to get to that. While our O-line starting 5 looked pretty good and played 100% of the offensive snaps, all 62, which is impressive. Jordan Howard played a very minor role and it was Myles Gaskin who ended up leading the Dolphins in rushing with 40 yards on 9 carries. Matt Breida was next with 22 years on 5 carries and Jordan Howard managed only 7 yards on 8 carries. Fitzpatrick was not great either, but why Preston Williams kept slipping on the artificial turf is confounding. It’s not like he needed to change to longer spikes, and the field was dry. Once again, the nagging injury bug has bitten WR Devante Parker. It is so frustrating because we all hoped he’d follow last season with an equal or likely better one, but if this hamstring hampers him, don’t count on it.

I’m not saying Tua has to play soon, but if the Dolphins offense doesn’t start putting points on the board, it’s inevitable that Tua, as long as he’s healthy should play. He’s the superstar in the making, and no reason to protect him for no reason. The O-line looks competent, so therefore if Fitz and the Dolphins offense don’t start showing some life, the Tua chapter of Dolphins football must begin. I’d like to consider game 1 as our first action since we had no preseason. A pass for a shoddy performance, but 1 game is all they get. If we open up at home getting run over by Josh Allen and the Bills it’s not going to look good for our season.

Christian Wilkins, last year’s 1st RD pick made his presence felt. We need 4-5 more guys on defense to do that each week. We need guys on offense to step up. Not sure if Parker is going to play or not and even if he does start, how long will he play and can he even be effective. I’d like to see Jordan Howard running hard. I’d like to see Breida catch a few balls out of the backfield and get upfield. I want to see Mike Gesicki continue his growth from last season and be like a George Kittle, Travis Kelce type of player. The O-line looks ready for prime time but the Bills may be a tougher challenge than the Patriots. We need to dominate the LOS and get some push for our backs and hopefully a successful run game will open up the passing game. I expect a conservative game plan, we don’t want to keep turning the ball over. If we win this game, I’m expecting a low scoring game, maybe a 17-16 game or 20-16. I’ll take either one!

  1. Mike E. says:

    No way was that a TD! There have been touchdowns that were much more convincing than that last TD by Zay Jones. No shot he had control before he went out of bounds

  2. son of a son of a shula says:

    The Killers are the worst shit I think I’ve ever heard

  3. Tim Knight says:

    My FF team is healthy with the exception of DeVante Parker and he looked fine yesterday. I’m now 2-0 and still pouring it on my opponent. Tie breakers in our league involve most points scored so Kamara and Lutz rock on! 🙂

  4. son of a son of a shula says:

    I was at Disney Hollywood Studios yesterday and tried nflbite to start the game on my phone and had nothing but problems (not the least of which was the “temporary difficulties”). I was checking here for updates and saw Herd say she was using surge so I tried that and had a perfect feed for the rest of the game from late 2nd qtr on thru. All while going on rides and shows and whatnot. And in and out of rain, ALL DAY.

  5. steveccnv says:

    Here it comes the home cooking for opening a new stadium.

  6. mf13ss says:

    My week #2 takeaways…

    1- DC Josh Boyer is already way in over his head, the way he hung Inbignoghene and Needham out to dry, with NO Safety help whatsoever throughout the game. Shameful, actually. One would think he’d bring Safety help after all of the crossing-routes we got shredded on in the 1st quarter, alone… but he didn’t. SMH

    2- OC Chan Gailey is a 3:1 passing-to-rushing coach. The game was never too far out of reach, so as to abandon the running game as he had. I acknowledge that the O-Line has yet to gel (give them a few more weeks), but Gaskin is doing quite well… whereas Jordan Howard and Matt Breida aren’t making the most of their very, very few touches.

    3- Mike Gesicki is EVERYTHING I’d said he’d one day be, prior to the ’18 Combine and Draft. Forget his in-line blocking (which he’s gotten even better at doing), he’s a situational NIGHTMARE.

    4- I think we miss Raekwon McMillan on early-down, obvious running-sits. We (sorry… I) knew he sucked in coverage, and that’s why we ultimately traded him. We need someone who is a THUMPER vs the running game, but who can also be a great coverage LB. The search for the next “Urlacher” (stellar 3-down LB) continues…

    5- Do NOT expect to see Tua, until this O-Line has finally gelled. We certainly don’t want to give Tua the DCS* (David Carr Syndrome), nor compromise his safety. Ryan Fitzpatrick is the guy right now… and he’s an outstanding mentor for the young Tua.

    6- Our pass-rush is still anemic, and will continue to be until we draft a stud…

    7- Wasn’t that really nice yesterday… CBS failed for a time, and then the lightning delay.

    8- Matt Haack is well on his way to a Pro-Bowl season.

    9- DeVante is battling through another hammy, huh? I thought it showed on Sunday, yet he promised today that he will NOT be missing a single game this year. Hmm…

    10- HC Brian Flores MUST help Josh Boyer on Defense, and I think Chan Gailey is over-the-hill… Gailey reminds me of ol’ “Mr. Magoo”, AKA Dan Henning, back in the late 2000s. Just sayin’…

    It’s far too early to call for heads at this point, so let’s see how it all pans out over the next several weeks…

    GO PHINS!!!
    HELL YEAH!!!

    • Tim Knight says:

      Good post. I think it was a little too critical at this stage. Last year was tear it down and start to build it back up this year is the new direction with philosophy and personnel.

      Look at Gruden and his Raider’s tonight. Year three. It doesn’t happen overnight.

    7:49 AM · Sep 22, 2020·Twitter Web App
    Tweet your reply
    Travis Wingfield
    Level 2:
    The team looks at every option — referring to a question about McCain or Brandon Jones playing the slot. A lot of those questions are had, Bobby is part of a lot of those conversations because he’s so versatile.
    Travis Wingfield
    Level 2:
    More on Minshew: Coming out he was smart, tough, competitive, good accuracy, a guy we liked. He’s got all the characteristics you’re looking for at the position and that’s coming to fruition up there in Jacksonville.
    Travis Wingfield
    Level 2:
    On Gardner Minshew: He’s accurate, he spreads the ball around. They get it to each of the WRs, the TEs. He’s got scrambling abilities. He’s a good young quarterback. You see his leadership and command of the offense.
    Travis Wingfield
    Level 2:
    Dropped interceptions, lost edges, a couple missed tackles. When there are opportunities we need to take advantage of them. We stress how important every play is because you never know which one is going to shift the momentum in the game. Flores on some mistakes on D.
    Travis Wingfield
    Level 2:
    Flores on Shenault: he’s big, fast, explosive. Getting him handled will be a big challenge but you can’t just get locked in on one guy, they’ve got a bunch of good players.

      We actually noticed Hunt has been on the field as an extra lineman for a touchdown run in each of the first two games, too.

      • steveccnv says:

        What does that really mean? Did he actually make a block or do something or did he just happen to be in the jumbo package and we scored on it?

        People come up with the dumbest validation stats. Referring to the media.

  13. wyoming85 says:

    Somebody asked why we haven’t used Hunt in a 6 Oline package?

    Just found information that we had.

  14. steveccnv says:

    Minshew has played at an above average level to start the season. Being a short week and since we don’t have our shit together yet, this is going to be another tough game.

  15. son of a son of a shula says:

    Broncos signing Blake Bortles giving them 2, that’s two, quarterbacks from good old Oviedo. Who would have ever figured that.

  16. The Flying Pig says:


    Did you really get up at 2am to post a video of women crying?

    Here’s another video for you. This one is inspirational to me. This is RBG giving the eulogy at Justice Scalia’s funeral, a man who she butted heads with politically for decades but had incredible respect for.

    I think she’s worth crying over. I wish I was a little more sentimental, I would be in that video too. But all my tears are saved up for Sunday’s….lol

    These people are inspirational to me. All of them. RBG, Scalia, Thomas, Kennedy. I studied law and looked up to all of them. I’ve been practicing for 20 years and I won’t scratch the surface on their achievements.

    I can get that some of you may not understand how other people feel about these things. But really, posting videos of people she inspired crying about her death…come on…

    I think this blog can do better than that

    That’s ugly

  17. The Flying Pig says:

    I don’t know if it’s trend yet bc it’s early but it seems to me that maybe some of our WRs might be struggling to get separation

    It’s not worth while to lament about at this stage
    But even in September , bc we are in the middle of building
    And we have picks

    It’s worth looking for our weaknesses in terms of personnel

    Early on I’m thinking WR, EDGE, LB and RB
    If that’s what we look at next draft, it’s actually my favorite kind of draft….lol

    In fairness, I always want to draft those positions….😂

    • son of a son of a shula says:

      We need the best DE coming out of the draft, trade up do whatever but that’s our low spot by far.

      • The Flying Pig says:

        We have lots of picks

        I won’t say how many bc I am always wrong
        But lots is a good way to describe it

        I don’t exactly love the idea of taking a WR or RB in the top 10
        But mid 1st to the 3rd round ….I lick my chops every year about that…

  18. The Flying Pig says:

    When did we have two Jewish QBs

    I know Fiedler is one – who is the other?

    Also, I forgot to say

    Happy New Year (I know I’m late)

  19. The Flying Pig says:

    I edited my posts
    But I actually did write RGB instead off RBG
    And right instead of write….😂😂😂

    Oh the pork of it

  20. stangerx says:

    Phins are 3 point dogs to the Jags at J-Ville.
    Want to say that means even teams…. but how much is home field advantage worth this year?

  21. steveccnv says:

    Lol at RGB, but even funnier is the honor her dying wish, which no one believes she actually said, but even if she did…

    • stangerx says:

      She was an impressive woman. And it was a dying wish. Put it out some days before she passed in front of a number of folks…. but not up to her either. But guess that is what wishes are about.

  22. stangerx says:

    According to Crabbs of the Dolphinswire at least — Howard is the kind of RB you go to when your OL opens up big old holes.
    “The Dolphins can’t hit their landmarks and win gaps with the consistency needed right now for Howard to find room to run. So the reps go more frequently to Gaskin and Breida. And Gaskin seems to be Miami’s player of choice on passing downs as well — so when you consider this offense has been trailing for much of the early season, it makes sense that Gaskin is the guy getting the call.”

    I know we had him in there on the goal line for the Pats game, the one that went for an eventual Howard score.

  24. D says:

    IMO, RBG was a precedence setter and a champion for females, and that really cant be denied not her accomplishments besmirched. Yes she was on a liberal way left, but a human being never the less, worthy of having her passing be lamented. She was everything you look into a positive contributor to human kind.

    • stangerx says:

      Watching the retrospectives what stood out to me was she graduated from Harvard Law but no top-line law firm would hire her…. and obviously she was capable enough to get to the Supreme Court.

      About the same time my Mom became one of the first executive level women at Procter & Gamble. My Dad was hired for the same level position bout the same time. Thing is if he did well could have become President but everyone knew she’d never get promoted above the level she was hired at. Same time her just having that entry-level position was a big deal. Times they have changed.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      When I was in law school RBG and Scalia were the bookends in the Supreme Court
      The left and the right
      It’s weird that they are the last two who died while serving on the court

      it’s really cool to see the constitution interpreted two entirely different ways
      So in a lot of ways, bc of when they served and when I was in law school, those two taught me about the law and how imperfect it it

      I think it’s important for Americans to understand that parts of the constitution are designed to be in conflict with one another and part of our makeup is to disagree

      And that we have a scotus to give us guidance. It doesn’t necessarily matter whether you agree with them or not to appreciate their contributions

      I don’t think it’s cool to mock them or how upset people are at what they left. You all know my politics by now, and if you can find me attacking Scalia or people upset when he died – I would be surprised. I don’t think that’s okay.

      Now maybe going forward I can get the initials right…

      • Tim Knight says:

        I understand the trap game when say an 8-2 team maybe thinks they can just show up and beat a 3-7 team. But a team who went 5-11 last year and started off 0-2 this year isn’t taking anyone lightly. And we know Flores isn’t going to set that tone either.

  30. Tim Knight says:

    B.B. King was no doubt a blues guitarist and artist icon. He was also a very cool guy. But he was extremely limited and basically played the same lick patterns on every song. I’m not one to get into this person or that person are the best because that is always an individual preference. But when I want to hear the blues, there are many other guitarists I gravitate to before him.

    • D says:

      You have a better ear for it but I think the guy made the guitar sing and to me that’s the definition of artistry. I think he is the guy who made me feel the blues with his guitar vso maybe opinion, but he is my top.

    • son of a son of a shula says:

      I agree. He was a very talented entertainer and wonderful man and I think he knew his limitations as a player. He was loved by many.

NO MENTION AT ALL ABOUT TOM-BOY AND THE BUCS! –NOTHING! AND, OF COURSE, NOTHING ABOUT COLLEGE FOOTBALL, EITHER.

    • D says:

      Like I said before, way at the beginning of his last CF season I was a box g fan of us potentially getting him. Thomas and Kindley made a sick left side of UGAd almost impenetrable OL. I’m very glad we got him. I would have loved to had Thomas and/or Wilson with him but we got a good one with him.

    • steveccnv says:

      Looks more like a hold. His hands are outside. Against the cheats that gets called every time.

    • D says:

      Not a hold because his hands werent on the outside of the shoulders nor was he grabbing the jersy, he basically just used the guy’s momentum against him. Those are “legal” holds, and i promise you any time the ball is snapped that kind of hold is happening.

      • The Flying Pig says:

        We would have been called for holding if we were playing the patriots though

        I had the same thought as Steve – I thought it was a hold. But I’m just a piggy who watches the game and waits for the Dolphins to be competitive, so I’ll take your word for it

      • stangerx says:

        Looked a wrestling pancake to me, but what do I know about the technicalities of holding. I got hands inside the shoulders and…. that’s about it.

  39. Randy says:

    That was a hold on Kindley. You cannot have your hands outside the defender’s body, and he did. You can see his hand/fingers on the back of the defender’s shoulder. That’s not inside the framework of their body. It’s also how he could throw the guy like he did. There’s just no way to throw a guy to the ground like that without holding. But, who cares? It wasn’t called, so it wasn’t a penalty! Lol
    What I liked and think is encouraging is the footwork involved. He had to quick step to his right and do a hook block…or reach block. He showed really quick feet on that move and then used leverage really well. Good stuff.

    • stangerx says:

      How you feeling about the OL overall? Thinking we at least have an average one and the two rooks are looking good.

    • D says:

      Yeah i just dont see it that way, he didn’t extend the arms or grab the jersey, he hip leand to help the momentum of the guy follow through to the ground. Its iffy, but looked legal to me. I have seen plenty of that not called in the NFL. Borderline.

    So the work im do is attached to healthcare, and though im in a different postion now, i use to work on physician applications, one of them being an electronic signature system that allowed the doctors to sign off on transcriptions typed. Transcriptionist typed it, it went to their queue, they logged in to review them and then signed off if they felt it was correct, or at least that was my understanding of how it worked. The button they used to do this check, was called edit, and they would select all the documents, hit edit and it would step through each on so they would get to look it over and then hit sign and save at the bottom, when it would then go to the next, risne repeat.

    One day i discovered we had a “sign” button on the home screen of that page and i was like, uh what does that button do, i thought they had to edit to get to the place they could sign, and they were like, oh some of them like to just highlight and sign them to save time. I was like WHAT!!!!!! are you fuucking kidding me.

    I mean they put their livelihood and the safety of the patient in the hands of some lady making getting paid by the word? What if she typed remove left testicle instead of remove right testicle…. you are going to have some really pissed off balless dude out there who is going to want to own that Dr’s house. WTF. They were like, well yeah thats what they wanted so thats what we gave them, and i was just shaking my fucking head at that statement.

    Do you know what the second biggest killer is in the world after cardiovascular disease? And you aren’t going to find this in your internets searches. Its healthcare mistakes. Its higher than cancer, which is number 3. People around the industry joke that thats why its called “practicing” medicine. Its a really smart idea to be doing checks on the people you use for healthcare services to make sure they arent a chronic oopsie type person.

    PFF said the Dolphins who graded out the best on defense, in order, were: defensive tackle Davon Godchaux, cornerback Jamal Perry (just five snaps), defensive linemen Christian Wilkins and Raekwon Davis and linebacker Andrew Van Ginkel.”

    I watched the game on my phone. When Gesicki made that one handed catch that was high and behind him was there possibly another receiver deeper Fitz might have been throwing to or was it just that far off?

    I used to be Gale Sayers against my brothers in the back yard as a small kid. Three older bigger brothers, I was fast!

    Gaskin has to be the surprise so far this year he’s playing great!

    RIP Gale Sayers.

    I hate to jinx this, but we might gave a TE. WTF?
    Find him in the game, he will be open.

    Stanger, I can’t remember what the post was or from who, but I saw something recently where it said Miami’s OL is not ready to ground and pound and that’s why we’re going with Gaskin and Breida who have more quick cutback ability than Howard.

    • D says:

      I dont remember the poster or the source of their post, but i do remember what you are talking about but it didnt really seem rooted in fact, it was a reporters opinion as to why, so im not sure there is anything to that. Howard may be banged up some, he might just not be performing well, but it could be just that Gaskins has the hot hand. It could also be that he is deliberately saving Brieda and Howards touches for later in the year, i dunno and i doubt from that article the writer did either.

      All that we do know is Gaskins is making the most of his touches. and Laird has done solidly as well. This is all the better for us, having each of those guys be able to get it done. I am sure as the season moves along we see a lot more of both Howard and Breida..

      • Tim Knight says:

        Yeah I’m just throwing it out there. What Gaskin is doing reminds me of what Mark Walton was doing for us until he fucked up off the field again.

  59. D says:

    Steve, when i say i have seen plenty of that not called, that means its kind of up to the line judge’s interpretation on that play, and if they didn’t call it, thats how they call their games. Its kinda like the back judge judging the hand-fighting on DB’s, some will call it some wont. On a lot of areas of the game, the call comes down to some very minor viewpoints on the refs part, and some let the game run through minor infractions that would ultimately not have affected the play and this probably qualifies.

    The dems are out of control and need to be stopped.

    You’re either with them and this political anarchy or against.

      I was always wondering what this case was all about. It never made sense to me. If this is true… bad shit happens when you engage in bad shit.

    IT WAS ALMOST LIKE A SCENE FROM “THE NATURAL.” But this one was better. it REALLY HAPPENED!! Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals got rolling when The Lightning’s Nikita Kucherov stole a Dallas pass, and roared in on a clean Breakaway. As Mike Lang might have said, “He Beat Him Like a Rented Mule!!!” 1-0, Bolts.

    A couple of minutes later, team captain Steven Stamkos made his long anticipated return to the ice after missing SEVEN MONTHS due to at least a couple of surgeries!! Stamkos got a pass from a team mate, skated right around a Dallas defender, and shot the puck in the upper corner FOR A GOAL ON HIS FIRST SHOT in seven months!!!

    The Tampa Bay coaches and players went ABSOLUTELY NUTS!! It was truly unbelievable!! For a couple of moments, even loquacious announcer Mike Emrick was at a loss for words!! 2-0,Bolts.

    To their credit, the Dallas Stars responded by DOMINATING the last half of the first period. They even scored a short-handed goal to narrow the margin to 2-1 at intermission. I’ve got a strong feeling we haven’t seen the end of tonight’s drama. Boy, this is everything you’d hope for in a Stanley Cup Finals contest!!

    It appears the Tampa Bay Rays will clinch first place tonight in the American League east. But we all know around here the top of page one will be about Steven Stamkos’s magical return to action. For tonight, Stamkos is better than “THE NATURAL!!”

  62. olddolphan says:

    THE LIGHTNING CONTINUE to pour it on in the second period. THREE MORE GOALS by Tampa Bay raised their advantage to 5-1. Looks like Stamkos will sit out the rest of this now lopsided contest. But he’s already made history tonight!!

    our defensive backfield is banged up, and Mishew is on a tear,, also, the calls for Tua will get louder, FItz is turnover prone, and somehow cant seem to find a way to convert first and goals

  66. OD is right, the team needs a powerback to convert short yard sits,

    Howard doesnt appear to be it, yet,
