Game 14 – Jets @ Dolphins

Divisional rival game. Throw out the team records, throw out the last meeting between these two teams and also, throw away all the momentum of the 5 game winning streak. All that is in the past. What remains in front of the Miami Dolphins is a team that knows them backwards and forwards, there are no surprises, no secrets. Unfortunately for the Miami Dolphins, the one thing that the win streak afforded them was consistency. That went out the window when the entire Dolphins RB room tested positive for COVID. More unfortunately, it wasn’t just the RB room. We have potentially lost our star WR Jaylen Waddle as well as our star S Jevon Holland. Both of these players are huge part of what we do on offense and defense respectively. The pass game went through Waddle and the versatility and effectiveness of Jevon Holland doing everything from blitzing, to coverage, to playing near the LOS as a LB has been so valuable to the Dolphins. There is potentially good news as S Brandon Jones is questionable to return from ankle and elbow injuries Sunday. He’s logged 2 limited practices so it’s possible he can suit up. Jones isn’t Holland, but if I had to pick one of our safeties to replace Holland, it would be Jones.

Back to the consistency thing. We need Deiter in there at C and we need him to play well. We’ve had 3 different centers this season though I believe we’ve seen the last of C Austin Reiter who was waived this week. Greg Mancz who we picked up from the Ravens is IR/DFR which means he’s off the IR and designated for return. He’ll likely be the backup this week to Deiter who is wearing a precautionary walking boot. I’m really hoping Myles Gaskin can play. We know his limitations, as do the Jets, but he gives the offense some consistency which is much needed this week. If Waddle is OUT, and it sure looks that’ll be the case, DeVante Parker who is being rested this week and not practicing will hopefully be wearing his Superman costume under his uniform. The WR corps will be Parker, Wilson, Hollins, Ford and Williams. I would imagine TE Mike Gesicki would be in line for a heavy dose of targets this week although it’s difficult to say that with certainty since his targets have been anything but consistent.

Our defense will have to set the tone, and they have been doing that during the duration of this five game win streak. There won’t be the statue-like Joe Flacco at QB this week, it will be the much more mobile, much less experienced rookie QB Zach Wilson. To be fair, Flacco carved up our defense pretty well but ultimately it was his lack of escapability that did him in. Zach Wilson can move, but pressure will cause errors in judgement and poor throws. We need Emmanuel Ogbah, Jaelan Phillips, Andrew Van Ginkel to keep up their relentless pass rush. All of these guys have been killing it the last few games. If S Jevon Holland is OUT, hopefully Brandon Jones can step in and get the job done.

The Jets will likely get a boost for their run game as rookie RB Michael Carter will be coming off IR this week. Carter has played well this season and has been a definite bright spot in their offense. Bad news for the Jets is WR Elijah Moore is on IR and will not be able to play Sunday. He’s been the bright spot in their passing game which now features Denzel Mims who is desperately trying, along with the Jets to get going. The Jets will rely a lot on Jamison Crowder, Keelan Cole and Braxton Berrios. Tevin Coleman and Ty Johnson have been splitting RB duties but if Michael Carter is able to play, he’s the one to watch out for.

I don’t care what this game looks like on paper. Yes, the Jets are 32nd in points allowed with 397 (30.5 PPG). They are 29th in points scored with 226 (17.4 PPG). The Dolphins have made significant gains in both categories during the 5 game win streak. The Dolphins are now 25th in points scored with 254 (19.5 PPG) and really moved up defensively to 13th with 288 (22.2 PPG). When 2 teams know each other so well, anything can happen, especially after having the win streak snapped by the interruption of the BYE week. What could have been a week to improve our roster by getting healthy has turned out be a disaster with COVID infecting too many important players. It will take a lot for Brian Flores and his staff to stay focused and find a way to overcome the obstacles that have presented themselves this week. Hopefully Flores has this team’s attention and they understand the importance of winning E-V-E-R-Y * S-I-N-G-L-E * G-A-M-E. There are no week’s off, this team must win the rest of their games or the season is done. Jets Head Coach Robert Saleh would love nothing more to end this streak and have the Dolphins join them as another team from the AFC East OUT of the playoffs. This game could be a nail biter, so fasten your seatbelts!!

PS – Some good news most recently from the Stanger camp. Jon has improved since my last update. Things are looking up so all of you BLOG Cardiac Surgeons can rest easy and don’t worry yourselves about transplants and the like. Hopes and prayers to Jon that he continues to improve and get out of the hospital able to resume a normal life.

GO DOLPHINS!!!

    Get us a ‘power-back’ RB, a ROCK at one of the Tackle positions (I’d prefer for Tua’s blindside but I’m not too picky), and a WR who can be a healthy version of DeVante Parker.

    I guarantee, Tua is going to be a top-10 (probably more like a top-5) QB.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Right now it seems like keeping Eichenberg and Jackson on the left side is the way to go. RT would be my target. It doesn’t have to be an all-pro/pro bowl guy, but a solid starter who has like 50 starts at RT and a proven vet. Move Davis back to backup duties because of his versatility in a pinch. I would also look to add competition or upgrade at C if we can. Deiter looks okay but is he long-term? That improves depth.

      Add a physical RB who doesn’t have to have amazing stats but can get the tough yards when we need them and make some plays here and there. Maybe in time he becomes a feature back. That improves depth.

      Can we be so bold to ask for another playmaking WR? I don’t care what type of game this guy has, I want a playmaker who makes teams worry about more than Waddle. Right now teams don’t fear us beating them over the top or taking it to the house out in space. Waddle is the only one and they always have more than one DB around him.

      Parker when healthy is a very good WR as we all know. Because of that, I keep him for 2022 but I want to replace Wilson who does not look very good on a consistent basis and Williams who rarely plays. I like Hollins (STs) and Ford as depth. Add one WR in FA and one in the Draft that can change the dynamic of our passing game. That improves depth.

    I could swear Tua is my younger brother with all of his “yup-yup”s!!! Damn!!! I LOVE IT!!! 😀

    • mf13ss says:

      I got my “yup-yup”s from Teddy Riley, the innovator of “New Jack” music back in the late 80s-early 90s. I have NO idea where Tua got his from. It’s certainly not a Hawaiian or Samoan thing, to be sure.

    • Tim Knight says:

      He also says yes sir and let’s go a lot. LOL

      Tua is a grounded individual and a competitor just getting started. Build around him and very good things will happen. Yes deep passes too. 😉

  3. olddolphan says:

    THE DOLPHINS WILL BE a much different team with Waddle returning and, perhaps, Duke Johnson starting. The Saints won’t know quite what to expect because, well, it’s the FIRST TIME they’ve played together as team mates. So the Saints coaches have to deal with an UNKNOWN FACTOR right from the get-go.

    Miami’s coaches, on the other hand, KNOW EXACTLY WHAT THEY’RE GOING TO DO WITH THIS DYNAMIC DUO RIGHT OUT OF THE GATE. And THAT’s the time they need to fire all their weapons!! New Orleans is over confident, thinking we just shut out the Super Bowl CHAMPS— so these guys (the Dolphins) should be NOTHING compared to Tampa Bay.

    “NOT SO FAST, MY FRIEND!!!” The Fins have been DEADLY on their first drives this season, even tho’ they’ve been short handed on a few occasions. BUT NOT THIS TIME!!! Miami has all their guns loaded. They are READY TO SHOCK THE FOOTBALL WORLD!!

    I can almost see Coach Flo grinning with that malevolent smile covering his face from ear to ear. It’s more like a sneer. Well, Saints fans, FEAR THE SNEER cuzz Coach Flores IS HERE!!

    MERRY CHRISTMAS, NEW ORLEANS FANS!!
    COACH FLORES HAS A CHRISTMAS GIFT JUST FOR YOU!!
    ——————————-
    GET BETTER QUICKLY, Young Stanger!! This game could put a major league smile on your face!

  4. Tim Knight says:

    Anyone think WR Allen Robinson might want out of Chicago as a UFA? He would make us better on offense. Tua gets a savvy vet WR with size who makes plays.

    • olddolphan says:

      TIM, QUITE A FEW “savvy vets” will want to come to Miami after this season is over.

      • Tim Knight says:

        Re-sign Gesicki, sign Robinson along with Waddle and Parker that’s not an easy cover. Then add another explosive WR in the draft. BOOM!!! We already know Hollins and Ford can step up when needed.

    • mf13ss says:

      Who is this Allen Robinson you speak of? LOL 😉

      Yup, he would be an OUTSTANDING signing for our Phins, and without a doubt.

      • mf13ss says:

        What’s more, I think Matt Nagy and Ryan Pace are both GONE on ‘Black Monday’. Not sure Robinson wants to go through another rebuild in Chi-Town.

      • Tim Knight says:

        Allen Robinson will the best FA WR on the market. Not sure what you’re suggesting? I know who he is. LOL

    • mf13ss says:

      Again, I 100% agree with ya on potentially signing him in the offseason.

    • Tim Knight says:

      He’s one of the best WRs in the NFL skill wise. The Bears have had quite the QB carousel. Robinson makes Tua better and vice versa. It really does make sense. These are the types of moves Grier needs to make now.

  6. Tim Knight says:

    M13, why would Robinson want to remain in Chicago? New GM, HC and a learning curve for a young QB in Fields. Tua is ahead of Fields as a young QB. The Dolphins are better than the Bears.

  7. manitobafinfan says:

    Robinson feels like another “ I can’t stay healthy “ WR … I’d prefer not … want a new one in draft for sure , preferably early …

    • manitobafinfan says:

      Agree want 2 OL in FA, possibly a FA WR , but one that can stay healthy and on the field … and as above draft a burner with hands …

  8. manitobafinfan says:

    On a FFB note….

    Stanger put up a different strong fight , and took out Hulk .. keep fighting Stanger I gotcha …

    • manitobafinfan says:

      Phelon fell to Mrs Toba two weeks in a row , and was bounced from playoffs after finishing #1 in Regular season …semi finals are set and we will 100% have a feMale in the finals as Darlene faces Herd and Stanger will continue his fight against Twice Twice to see who plays fir the gold …

      On an ironic note … of the 5 leagues I play in, I had Stafford as QB in 2, and Tua in 3 … guess which three teams made the playoffs… hopefully an Omen fir Dolphins season

      # Stanger Strong

  9. sb7mvp says:

    I know we need RB, WR, OL, but I’m concerned about CB if X can’t stay healthy in the future or the team decides to move on from him before his contract is up. He’s literally won games for us singlehandedly in the past, and quite honestly, has made Flores look a lot better in the win column. If Iggy’s not the alternative, then who is?
    To me, it’s like the situation with Cam Wake in his later years. Everyone kept saying we needed someone opposite of Cam, but never opened their eyes to the fact that we needed his eventual replacement too.

    • Mike E. says:

      Damon Arnette is the CB of the future! lol

      • ocalarob says:

        isn’t he the guy with issues?

      • Mike E. says:

        Who doesn’t have issues?

      • Rockphin says:

        On Friday, a video of Arnette went viral of him holding multiple guns. In the video, he repeatedly threatened to kill someone but did not name them. He recorded the video himself using several expletives and appeared to be by himself.

        The same day the video went viral, TMZ reported that Arnette was the subject of a lawsuit after he was involved in a car crash last October. Arnette struck a woman’s car in Las Vegas and the lawsuit claims he left the scene of the crash before exchanging information with the woman.

        Arnette stated he made an illegal turn but stayed long enough to make sure the woman was all right, per documents obtained by TMZ. He had a friend stay behind at the scene, but he did not provide any information to her and tried taking the blame.

  10. ocalarob says:

    trivia,
    which four dolphins players on D are normally on the field thru-out the entire game?

  11. Rockphin says:

    Robert Jones to the Covid list. I hope he’s the only OLineman exposed!

  12. Rockphin says:

    Answer: None, they are on the sidelines when the offense or special teams are playing.

  13. Rockphin says:

    Howard, Jones, Baker & Holland get the most snap counts on Defense.

    Peyton Manning Breaks Down Tua

    Trivia:

    Who was the last offensive player for the Dolphins to go to a Probowl?

  17. Rockphin says:

    The answer is Jarvis Landry 2017

  18. sb7mvp says:

    I bet Albert Wilson gets tired running pre-snap knowing he’s probably not going to see the ball his way.

  19. steveccnv says:

    Who will be the next Dolphins offensive player to go to a pro bowl?

  20. steveccnv says:

    Think we have more important needs than WR

    Parker, when he’s on the field he’s been good with Tua and his dead money says he’ll be back next year

    Waddle…

    Hurns and Bowden, they kept these guys to bring back, and I’m good with that

    Hollins, great ST and big play guy, when used as he has been

    Think we have 6 to start the season, Merritt may be given the first shot at it, but he needs to show a lot more

    Preston might get a shot too, think he’s still injured, if he can get his form back

    May draft one after first 3 rounds

  21. steveccnv says:

    RB doesn’t seem to be a priority for Flores, but a lot may ride on what the Duke does the next 7 games😉

    Either way we need a top guy and/or depth

  22. steveccnv says:

    OL playing better, but RT will surely be our 1st rd pick, unless we buy one

    If you’re going to invest draft capital as we have in OL, you have to be willing to have patience and expect growing pains

    Tua has been this OL’s BFF, as he’s allowed them to suck, while moving the ball and winning

    • Rockphin says:

      He has been getting rid of the ball at an incredible 1.9 seconds per snap in November. (overall average on the year 2.1 seconds) He HAS been their BFF for sure.

      • steveccnv says:

        The first half against the jets was so frustrating, that I missed the dink and dunk, move the ball, ball control, no turnover O

        It’s not a bad thing

  23. steveccnv says:

    TE, can’t see how Gesicki isn’t re-signed

    Smythe, can’t see how he is, unless it’s 2 or 3 mil

    We’ve missed Shaheen, and Long should figure it out soon enough

    No draft capital to be used on TE in 2022 draft

  24. steveccnv says:

    QB, not sure I’d look for one in the draft, to be used as a 2022 #2, but I would for a project, future #2

  25. Rockphin says:

    Who will be the next Dolphins offensive player to go to a pro bowl?

    Reply

    That’s a real tough one. Gesicki is probably the best offensive player, but there are better TE’s in the AFC and they have “street cred” already. Once you get selected to the bowl it is more likely that you will be selected again because of name recognition.

    Waddle? He needs to get more yards and TD’s to be a contender.

    Who else? I doubt Tua makes it unless we start making it to the post season regularly. I can’t think of another worthy guy on this team.

    • steveccnv says:

      Thought Waddle was the no brainer choice

      Tua plays an entire season like the last 5 games, not counting winning every game, just his play, he’s in the discussion

      Gesicki has to really break out at some point and may slide in one year, but agree tough for him to get in

  26. Rockphin says:

    Steve, I agree with your logic, but probowl selections are not logical. Often it is reputation over production in any given year. Chase got in as a rookie with less catches than Waddle, but he also had way less yards and way less TD’s.

    I think Parker would be fighting an up hill battle even if he stayed healthy because of his reputation for NOT staying healthy.

    As to Tua, I think he could play great and finish the year at the top of the passer rating board, but still be passed up for “big arm” QB’s

  27. Rockphin says:

    This year’s AFC choices

    WR Tyreek Hill Chiefs
    WR Stefon Diggs Bills
    WR Ja’Marr Chase Bengals
    WR Keenan Allen Chargers
    TE Travis Kelce Chiefs
    TE Mark Andrews Ravens

  28. Rockphin says:

    Taysom Hill out for NO. Got Covid listed this morning! Who the hell is Ian Book?

    Answer: The starting QB for New Orleans this Monday night!

    MERRY CHRISTMAS!

    Rookie out or Notre Dame going to start against our D Monday. Fingers crossed it goes the way it should and not some outlier / odd game where he winds up with a perfect passer rating!

  33. naplesfan2010 says:

    Not to jinx anything (shaking my juju bag just to be safe), but does thus season remind anyone else of that Tony Sparano (RIP) one? Where things began to go our way and every week brought another break for us and fortune facilitated our run to the PO … along with a deadly accurate QB?

  34. naplesfan2010 says:

    While on that subject, it seems unfair that some people dismiss our win streak as being against lesser teams. When we were on the losing streak, no one cut us any slack for it being a very tough schedule against superior teams.

    • steveccnv says:

      It was against shitty teams, you could even argue that Balt was shit when we played them, they haven’t done much since

      When we were losing 7 straight we were playing better competition mostly, but we were bad

  35. naplesfan2010 says:

    I mean plenty of teams have lost 7 games. Why are they considered better because their wins and losses were interspersed? That might be just how the master schedule worked out. Arizona lost to Detroit, so teams do slip against bum teams. Losing to a bad Jax team is bad on us, but we beat the hell out of Baltimore WITH Jackson, so they trade off.

    • New Age says:

      We also lost to a very bad Falcons team and were blown out by the Bills twice. We earned our bad rep but that doesn’t mean we haven’t improved even with the easier schedule. Every team has easy games on their schedule but winning them is still hard, like you stated with the Lions beating the Cards.

  36. naplesfan2010 says:

    The Falcons have won 6 games. They are 6.8 the bills are 8.6 Not much difference.
    In fact, 16 teams, half the league, has 6,7,or 8 losses.
    Why are those who have alternated wins and losses consider ed better than us just because ours were streaks? It’s still the same number of losses.
    They “feasted on bad teams” just like we did and got beat by the few quality teams, just as we did.

  37. steveccnv says:

    Taysom isn’t close to a good QB, but he’s a pretty good game manager with their D

    Even so Book can at least throw the ball

    Belicheat has a thing about beating rookie QBs, think Flores has it too

    Feel much better about our chances, but it’s not Monday yet, Taysom still has time to clear the protocol

  38. New Age says:

    Naples,

    I don’t see many people saying we are one of the worst teams. We are in the playoff hunt and I see just about everyone acknowledge it. Who still says we are one of the worst?

    We aren’t a very good team even if we win 10 straight. It’s the same argument isn’t it? We’ve played a lot better against the weaker part of our schedule and are a middle of the toad team. That’s average. Hopefully we will be good next year but so thought we’d be this year so Flores needs a great offseason.

  39. CavalierKong says:

    It may seem things are going our way since the Saints may have to start their 4th QB, but hey, we have been hit too.

    We’re likely going into the game without Robert Jones, but it’s next man up…(it is Robert Jones, right? Davey Jones? Tom Jones?) Whatever, we won’t have that guy available and we’re not crying about it. So buck up Saints fans! 😉

  40. naplesfan2010 says:

    Wait … Jones was a UDFA, but he was honorable mention at middle Tennessee, so there’s that.

      • CavalierKong says:

        I’m going to get to Hawkeye at some point in the next week or two. I’ve heard good things. It’s Marvel, so even if it’s not great I know it’ll entertain. They have the formula down.

    Kong,

    Witcher was about as good as I could have hoped. Impressive at all levels. I heard WoT episode 7 was the best one yet so might give it a shot sometime. You’ve got me wanting to try Dark again. I liked the first 3-4 episodes, but my wife didn’t, and we were watching stuff together back then. I didn’t even remember it until you mentioned it. Netflix is constantly promoting new stuff and dumping old stuff in dark bins.

    Here’s how I see it…

    If we can REALISTICALLY beat the Chefs* or Bills in the playoffs this year, GO NINERS!

    If we can’t or won’t, GO TITANS!

    Plus, there’s more than one path for us to get into the playoffs. If we can get in with the 49ers losing, I like that path.

    Watching the game and Tannehill is terrible without his support system at full strength. We have a real chance next week against them. He’s averaging fewer yards per game than Tua, has 6 more ints, and the same number of TDs in basically 5 more games. If we can finally get Tua some tools, who knows how far we go but based off Tannehill…quite far,

    I guess that’s that

  71. The Flying Pig says:

    I guess we gotta root against the colts

  72. Ken says:

    Well that sucks

  73. Tim Knight says:

    What was that about Tannehill? Some of you guys still don’t give him credit. He’s a good QB. He’s just not elite.

  74. Ken says:

    Man Jimmy G was horrible tonight

  75. manitobafinfan says:

    Result didn’t kill our playoff chances … but yeah go all Colts opponents

  76. Ken says:

    Man the Tannehate is strong

    • Tim Knight says:

      You can win with Tannehill. But he’s not the elite guy everything goes through. Okay so what. Bob Griese wasn’t that either.

      • steveccnv says:

        That’s what I thought of Greise too, but watching some old tape I no longer feel that way

        Greise was a very good to great QB

      • Tim Knight says:

        He was super efficient. Made the most of his 12 pass attempts. 😉

        It was a different game back then for sure, I used him as an example of not overwhelming but still good.

  77. CavalierKong says:

    Before tonight’s game, we had three likely paths to the playoffs.*

    The Colts/ Titans path
    The Chargers path
    The Bills/ NE path

    The Colts/ Titans path: It probably died tonight. Now that path requires either two losses from the Titans (vs MIA, @ HOU) AND the Colts winning out or the Colts losing twice (@ARI, vs LV, @JAX).

    The Chargers path: Requires either one loss from the Chargers (@ HOU, vs DEN, @LV) AND help to make sure it’s only a two team tie with us and them or two Chargers losses.

    The Bills/ NE path: Requires either NE to lose to the Bills this weekend, or the Bills to lose to NE AND one of their last two games (vs ATL, vs NYJ).

    Our best shot is the Bills winning this weekend. It’s one game and nearly guarantees us a spot.

    *(The assumption is the Raiders, Steelers, and Ravens will all lose one more. That needs to happen no matter the path.)

  78. CavalierKong says:

    And this is still in play:

    If these 4 games go our way on Sunday, we control our own destiny (win out and we’re in no matter what else happens).

    BAL @ CIN – CIN
    PIT @ KC – KC
    DEN @ LV – DEN
    BUF @ NE – BUF

  79. steveccnv says:

    The Tenn win tonight might have made our game against them easier

    If Ind loses against AZ this week Tenn wins the div

  80. steveccnv says:

    SF no longer controls their own destiny

    Thanks for the updates on Stangerx guys. Wish it was better news…..

    I think about him everyday and always sending “be strong, healing” vibes to him and his support.

  82. herdfan says:

    Life has been busy so I’ve not been here much. I did notice Stanger wasn’t around, saw a couple of comments and finally went back enough to see what happened. Wishing him all the best and restored health for Christmas. Thanks to Ken, Piggy, Mike E for updates. #stangerstrong
