Perfect timing for a Dolphins bye week

Packers 31 – Dolphins 12

The Dolphins bye week couldn’t come at a better time.

Facing the Green Bay Packers in week 10 would prove to be a tall task, regardless of injuries. After seeing the Dolphins inactive list before the game, most gave the Dolphins an almost no chance of winning.

However, Dolphins head coach Adam Gase found some holes and was able to run the ball.  Dolphins drove the length of the field only to abandon the run on a short field inside the 20. Gase chose to go shotgun with an empty backfield.

A bad snap hit QB Brock Osweiler’s hands and sailed right behind him, only to be recovered by the Packers, who then marched right down the field and scored. Pretty much the way the whole game went.

A mystery surrounds Dolphins win against the Jets

Dolphins 13 – Jets 6

There is no way I could start this article in any way other than this: I have no idea why All-Pro safety Reshad Jones removed himself from the game.

I watched him closely during the game and he looked like he had a slight limp. I never got confirmation he was injured in any way, leaving a cloud of mystery to why he wasn’t out on the field.

We even saw defensive end Cameron Wake talk to him for about 10 minutes. When Cam was questioned about that conversation, his response was “That is between him and I”.

Lions roar past Dolphins

Detroit Lions 32 – Miami Dolphins 21

I know just how to start this game recap. And if you didn’t hear the score or even watch one down, you’d know the outcome from the following statement.

The Detroit Lions punted one time in this game. One Time.

They rushed for 248 yards with a 7.1 yards-per-carry average. This is the most yards the Dolphins defense has given up all year.  It looks like a problem Dolphins defensive coordinator Matt Burke hasn’t figured out how to correct.

Dolphins swim away with a thrilling win over the Bears

Dolphins 31 – Bears 28 (OT)

Let me just start out by saying this:  We all knew it wasn’t gonna be easy, but how many knew it would have ended like that??

I could spend 5 pages on stats and tell you all what most of you guys have already read, but I want to focus this article on us, the fans.  Man, the emotions we all go through with these types of games!

First off, lets start at the beginning.  Be honest y’all, did you really think back up quarterback Brock Osweiler was the answer?  I sure didn’t, and I was legit worried.  Then I started to calm down and thought about it some.

The Dolphins second straight loss has fans worried

Bengals 27 – Dolphins 17

As the Miami Dolphins rolled into Cincinnati, hopes were high that they would bounce back after that horrible showing in New England.

The first couple series showed the Dolphins offense poised and ready to take control. Building a 17 point lead by half-time had Dolphins fans rejoicing. Then, as most fans will tell you, came the most frustrating thing about football…a momentum swing.

Going into the third quarter the Dolphins offense seemed to completely fall apart. Protection disappeared. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill made some very questionable decisions while under heavy pressure. Turnovers, penalties, and mostly momentum had clearly swung the Bengals way.

Miami Dolphins still miffed by Gillette Stadium

New England Patriots 38 –  Miami Dolphins 7

Last week I thought about how I would start this article if the Dolphins went up to Gillette and totally stunk up the joint.  Well, the Dolphins didn’t disappoint us there!

I even wonder if the team had even bothered to get off the plane. I could write an article a mile long with stats and what went wrong.  I could make excuses on just how badly this team got outcoached and outplayed.  But seriously, what would be the point?   Simply put, the Dolphins got the brakes beat off of them. In every aspect of the game.  This loss can’t be blamed on a single player or a coach.  It was everyone’s fault.  If you want to see a team that put forth a complete losing effort, just look at the Dolphins in this game.

I thought about doing an article like this for several years now, only to chicken out because it seemed so silly. 

Plus I thought I was the only one in America that does this.

But come this Sunday, as most are sitting down with a beer and some Chicken wings, or gathering with friends at a bar to watch our beloved 3-0 Dolphins travel to dreaded Foxboro, I will be waxing my boat.

The Miami Dolphins are 3-0 and atop the AFC East

The Miami Dolphins have taken over the top spot in the AFC East. Yes, it’s only game 3 but honestly, most of the national media had written this Dolphins team off as one of the worst in the league.

Well, that worst team in the NFL has found themselves alone at the top of their division.

Offensively, during the first quarter, quarterback Ryan Tannehill struggled to find any rhythm. “Sometimes it’s not gonna be pretty but we all hung in there together and we found a way to get it done,” Tannehill said. I said this the whole offseason once the Dolphins signed Albert Wilson (my former hometown kid).

This is the guy head coach Adam Gase was searching for. Wilson brings a whole new skill set. He is fast and very versatile. He is a Gase guy. Coach said that Wilson, along with another explosive player, Jakeen Grant,  have a whole set of plays designed just for these two players’ skill sets.
