Separate names with a comma.
But was that down to Gailey's play-calling?
I read somewhere that Chan was calling more conservative plays for Tua than he was for Fitz.
Is he Marty's son?
X has been selected First-team All-Pro, along with Jason Sanders.
Jakeem Grant is second-team punt returner.
Congratulations to all three.
Thanks for posting.
I think Fitz might have something to say about your assessment of Hollins.
I thought the OLine looked very good at times, but it obviously struggled on other occasions. Denver being a case in point.
I believe it’s worth...
It was all probably agreed with Grier and Flores, but it places Gailey in a better light, if it’s announced that he resigned.
That’s a great suggestion.
When Premier League clubs are looking for possible destinations for young players they want to loan out, they tend to...
As I said earlier, the second quarter killed any hopes we had of winning the game.
Once we were down by that margin, Buffalo could easily control...
You’re a real ray of sunshine, aren’t you?
As I said earlier, the first quarter defined the game.
After that, we were chasing it, and that defined the rest of the day.
I like the fact that Bowden can pass the ball and can be used for wildcat plays, as well as being a decent running back/receiver.
He deserves a...
Have you seen the Dolphins over the last two seasons?
The Bills are at least a year ahead of us in their rebuild.
The Miami Dolphins lost the...
What makes you so sure?
It’s rather galling that either the Bears or the Cardinals will be in the playoffs with at best, a 9-7 record, and we’re going to miss out with 10-6.
Tua threw some easily catchable passes that were dropped today.
I can think of two straightforward ones that Ford didn’t hold on to. There were...
The problem was, that after the first quarter, we were chasing the game, so had to take risks.
I know we didn’t play well, but the first quarter...
This is turning into a disaster!
Unfortunately, the Dolphins won’t have my full attention until after the Chelsea-Manchester City game has finished.
I love the 'Phins, but City...
I guess this will become it.
I watched some of those games, and I was very impressed with Najee.
The vault over the Notre Dame defender was phenomenal.
I'd love him in this...
If Jake came from the same village as me, he’d be Rudock from Budock (Water).
I think Salvon has been a revelation since he moved up from the practice squad
I doubt that he will ever be a franchise RB, but he has the...
It’s amazing, considering where we were after seven games last season.
Flores, Grier, the assistant coaches and the players have all done a...
Ahmed too, hopefully.
I’ve just watched the report on the NFL app, and apparently, Tua isn’t a close contact concern.
Rudock has been promoted to the roster.
That’s very bad news.
Do we have a backup...
And, on the flip side, what would it do to Tua’s confidence if Flores were to start with Fitz on Sunday?
I think the signs were there last season, when we beat them in week 17, and ruined their playoff plans.
Do you think Callaway was cut because of the way Bowden has stepped up?
Maybe they’ve yet to decide which game to show.
I love Christian Wilkins; he’s one of my favourite Dolphins.
He always gives me the impression that he enjoys his football, and that video has...
So, looking at the standings, a win for either Philadelphia or Cincinnati will guarantee a top-five pick.
The Bengals play Baltimore, and the...
Noah was our third pick last April, after Tua and Austin.
It’s not going to be easy, but just as we were a different team when we beat the patsies to the one that played them early in the season, so we’re...
Don’t the four divisional winners take the top four seeds?
Thanks for the comprehensive response
With the 10-4 Titans to come for the Texans, that is a distinct possibility.
Isn’t that incredible?
After the first seven games last season, who would have thought that we could be in this position?
So, we still have to beat Buffalo to ensure a post season spot?
You were saying?
Thanks for posting.
That’s some turnaround in one year.
It was interesting to hear the commentator say that he’d spoken with Fitz during the week and Ryan told him that Tua, in his opinion, has to learn...
Unfortunately, I slept through most of the second half, though I did wake up just in time to see the interference call on Jones.
I couldn’t agree more.
An old adage that I first heard associated with the '85 Bears is, offence wins games, but defence wins championships....
Good man, DeVante.
It's great when players use their position and high profile to help those less well advantaged than themselves and this is one...
I’ve just seen that we gained 250 yards rushing. When was the last time a Miami team did that?
Salvon Ahmed ran for 122 and Matt Breida for 86....
Two wins and he’ll be up to .500 as HC.
Mirror seasons - 5-11 and 11-5.
Unfortunately, 5:30 is too early to take him out.
Surely it makes a (pleasant) change from the patsies winning it again?
It certainly does for me.
And how appropriate that the patsies playoff hopes were ended by a sack from a Dolphin.
Last week, I took the dog out at half time and missed the Dolphins' TD early in the third quarter.
Tonight, I took the dog out at half time and...
Baker is having a great game.
Brilliant two-point conversion!
I’m pleased to see Ahmed back.
I’m really looking forward to this one, but then, I look forward to every Dolphins' game.
This isn’t the same team that lost to the patsies in...
Some of Tua's throws were unbelievable and incredibly accurate tonight.
As I’ve already said, it’s encouraging that this very young and very...
As Jim Nantz pointed out in the commentary, tonight was like Tua's second game, considering he had no preseason.
I noticed that he has already...
An OLine that contains three rookies and can protect a rookie QB as well as it does is very impressive, especially as one of its starters, Ereck...
A little disappointing, but not really surprising, to lose to one of the best teams in the league.
It hurt us giving up so many points without...
Fantastic throw by Tua and catch by Gesicki!
Baker is having a great game!
Washington is having a great game by his standards.
It’s interesting that we are one of the strongest teams that the Chiefs have faced so far this season. It gives me a little more hope, though...
That’s a great video.
Thanks for posting.
Big hole for van Noy to run through.
Howard is an idiot!
They’re falling like flies,
X is the MAN!
Not very impressive at all.
I love Christian Wilkins!
I don’t suppose there are many left on the roster from Gore's time with us?
Is Christian Wilkins available?
That’s much better from the D!
Terrible by the D!
A bit of luck for Tua, there.
Very soft penalty, but I’m not complaining!
Great play by Xavien!
And hopefully, for many seasons to come.
That was very interesting and very informative.
Thanks for posting.
If he does as well as Salvon Ahmed has, I’ll be very happy.
Very sad news.
R. I. P. Jake.
Is Benito in for Christian Wilkins?
But a team isn’t going to cut a guy unless it has a ready-made replacement.
Well done to the organisation for tying down another young player to a longer term deal.
Do others think that this has been prompted by the way Salvon Ahmed has done since his promotion from the practice squad?
There were plenty of people, when we started winning games, who said it was going to be a disaster for our prospects in the Draft.
We didn’t do...
A very good, competent - apart from the fumbled snap - display again.
Tua is looking more and more like the franchise quarterback we’ve been...
Thanks for the reply.
I really love it that we went under the radar during the close season.
Thanks for posting.
I really enjoyed watching that.
As you say, he seems like a really nice young man.
We visit the USA every summer, and I buy a copy of one of the NFL preview magazines, and, naturally, I take great interest in its predictions for...
I thought Salvon Ahmed did very well, considering he’d just been promoted from the practice squad.
I'm not sure that he would be a long-term...
I thought Tua did very well yesterday.
Of course, he made some mistakes, the nearly interception and throwing the ball into his teammate's -...
What a great victory. These Dolphins are for real.
It was a fantastic game of football. I really enjoyed it.
Tua was very impressive and...
Great stop by the D!
Great by Ahmed.
That’s better from Williams!
Even with our defence playing as well as it is?
The commentary on the stream I was watching said that there are very few quarterbacks, who could have made that pass to Parker for the TD.
What a performance by that D.
First time over .500 under Flores and the Kenny Albert or Jonathan Vilma said the only team that should...
Eric Rowe has had a great game today.
Shades of The Fridge there from Wilkins?
Fantastic D today!
Two records for Jakeem there.
1. Most punt returns for a TD (3)
2. Longest punt return for a TD.
Ogbah is having a great game.
I love a good sack!
The jests are so indisciplined.
Nice misdirect for the TD.
Signing for the Chiefs, apparently.
Flores, like most of his players, is new to the job and it’s going to take at least a little while for them to grow into their respective rôles....
Good for Brian.
It was a brilliant move and kept the momentum going.
Flores has already shown, in his season and a bit in Florida, that he is...
I agree with every word.
Additionally, is better for the OLine to become better acquainted with each other in real game situations, and with Tua...
You can only play what’s in front of you.
It wasn’t the Dolphins' fault that so many of their players were unavailable.
I haven’t forgotten...
Fantastic performance on both sides of the ball.
This young team is growing together week by week and the spirit and togetherness is there for...
What a crap call!
Fantastic half of football. On both sides of the ball.
Apart from that one drive, the Niners haven’t had a look-in.
Keep it up, guys.
What a great play by Gesicki!
And a great job by the offence in general.
That's more like it.
Fitz is certainly targeting #48.
Nice rush, Fitz!
That’s terrible, allowing that many yards.
I meant Ford.
I've just edited it.
Well, after a terrible start, it improved, though there were still lots of mistakes and some bad plays given up.
Lots of positives, but we still...
I like the look of Gaskin.
This is terrible!
That’s an unexpected bonus.
Better to receive a draft pick, even a low-round one, than nothing at all, for a player that the organisation was...
Another one of the Perfect Season gone.
R. I. P. Jim.
And if Tua sits this season, we will have had another year to improve the positions around him, which will, in turn, help to make things easier...
I would add, only games that we’re comfortably winning, as throwing a kid into a situation where the team is getting beaten badly is not a good...
I completely agree.
As you Americans say, "If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it," and if we’re winning, or at least losing competitively, it would be...
But you can say that about any rookie/draftee.
They are all young men, and have still to fully develop, both physically and emotionally, as well...
We have proof in our roster that no one can predict how a draftee will turn out.
Who would have thought in the summer of '18 that the No. 10 pick...
Maybe Devante worked better with Fitzpatrick than he did with Tannehill.
It can someone just be a question of chemistry between players.
Thank you for the comprehensive reply; it’s very much appreciated.
The first time I really took any notice of Corner play wa during Super Bowl...
Is that because safeties have to tackle TEs and RBs, as well as receivers, whereas CBs, more often than not, only cover WRs?
So are safeties generally bigger than CBS?
Thanks for posting that. It was a good read and very interesting.
Noah has the potential to become a big name, not just in South Florida, but...
Thanks for that.
Very interesting and informative.
It's good to get the draftees signed up early.
Very sad news.
Don Shula was Head Coach of the Dolphins when I started following them in the mid-80s.
The man was an icon, not just for the...
That’s a bit pointless, IMHO, as footballers rarely run that far in one burst, unless it’s a KO/punt return, of course.
Clocking a player’s 40...
Is Preston Williams one such player?
Yeah, I can see your point.
He's obviously not in the same class as the Marks Brothers, maybe not even Wilson.
But, as I said earlier, the...
Albert Wilson is 5’ 9" too, as is Mark Clayton. I think Duper is 5’ 8”.
My point is, you don’t necessarily have to be tall to make it.
Yeah, me too.
And it’s a no-lose situation for the Dolphins.
I’ve really enjoyed this draft, and it’s thanks to you guys for making me feel welcome. It’s been great fun.
I would especially like to thank all...
You can put up with a guy like that on the roster.
Thanks for posting the video.
I’ve just read on the Miami Herald App, and I quote, "The Dolphins won five games last year with a glorified XFL roster.”
As Flores said, games...
Is a Long Snapper really a specialist position?
We’re certainly filling up the trenches!
That’s like a marathon compared to our RBs last season.
Jason Strowbridge. DE
We’ve traded our first 5th rd pick to SF for RB Matt Breida.
Edit: and 136?
Flores and Grier certainly intend to protect Tua!
Solomon Kindley. G
To those not happy with the lack of offensive talent, apart from Tua and the OL, I remember an adage I first heard during the Bears' great season...
Davis sounds like a beast.
Raekwon Davis. DL
Just read Hunt's analysis on the NFL App, and he seems a great pick.
I’m watching it on YouTube.
Robert Hunt. OG.
Thanks very much for your replies.
They are very informative and very much appreciated
Can someone please explain the different skills needed to play the various positions on the OL?
Thanks for the reply.
As I’ve said before, I’m watching from afar and watch very, very little college football and I don’t have any of the...
Where are those posters, who said that winning games last season would mean the Dolphins missing out on Tua?
Do you think Noah will be used as a punt/KO returner?
I couldn’t agree more.
To achieve five wins with that squad was phenomenal coaching, IMHO.
That’s the trade up to No. 3 out the window!
Thanks very much.
l had an idea it was an outside defender, but wasn’t sure.
Can somebody tell me, what position is Edge?
Is it OLB/DE?
9' long and 2' 6" high? Not a big deal?
I hope you’re joking.
I can’t testify to how fast Mark Duper was, but I recall a story that he jumped a table tennis table lengthwise while he in college.
Thanks very much.
Can you explain, to an ignorant Brit, in simple terms, what Red Shirt means?
As a long time, long-distance observer of the NFL, and nowhere near the knowledge of you guys, I am of the opinion that if a team drafts a...
I don’t know much about him, but there are very few areas that we don’t need improvementS.
I hope he blossoms in Miami.
Has Cleveland been allowed to add a player to the roster to replace Garrett?
They played well in parts, but again, too many sloppy mistakes.
That’s why Hurns was available!
What a great play!
Good goal-line stand.
That's better, Dolphins!
The O-Line and Fitzpatrick are having a shocker!
This is dreadful!
Needham has started very well.
Well done, Dolphins.
Very good half.
Keep it up in the second.
Great run by Ryan for the TD!
Brave call on 4th down!
I doubt we will get anything from this one, but after last week, spirits will be high within the squad, and who knows.
Despite the terrible season, there seems to be a good spirit among the players and coaches, exemplified by the Gatorade dunking of Coach Flores.
Nine picks in the first two rounds? Don’t you think that we can find the talent needed to help turn the franchise around with all those picks,...
I'm not: I’m delighted that we have won a game, even if it’s the only game we win all season.
I once wanted my soccer team, Manchester City, to...
I knew it was going to be bad, but I didn’t expect it to be this bad.
That’s what you get when you trade your best player.
It’s going to be a...
Considering the number of false dawns we have seen over the years, I think we all have to be patient and give the new regime a chance for at least...
I know it’s a long time ago, but didn’t Dan Marino get sacked something like seven times one season?
His career to date is hardly inspiring, is it?
That’s very disappointing news.
I loved what Frank did for the Dolphins last season and I was looking forward to more of the same in 2019.
Not really a surprise, considering how this season - and last - ended.
I know that injuries haven’t helped, but the consistency of performances...
Can I add another to that list?
Less injuries please.
At long last!
Brilliant trick play!
The offence looks like a bunch of strangers, who have just turned up for the afternoon.
That’s a let-off.
Maybe it’s the break we need.
Such a shame, as Gore has been brilliant this season and was showing no signs of slowing down.
I hope he makes a full and speedy recovery, comes...
Every time I come on to the site, I have to log in, even though I always check the "stay logged in" box, and I have to go through the...
This is terrible.
I know it’s only the first quarter, but it already has the look of a blowout.
Come on, Dolphins, step up!
Good news for me (and all UK-based Dol-phans).
Sky is showing the game, so I don’t have to search for a stream
I really enjoyed the game, especially the first half. It was a great advert for offensive football.
Unfortunately, when the Pats scored the field...
I didn’t see all of the game, as I was on my way back from watching Manchester City score six.:clap:
I think it was 3-0 when I put it on.
Well done, Frank.
What a difference a week makes.
As good as they were last Sunday, they were equally as bad tonight.
What happened to the OLine? And the D?
Whatever happened to that great OLine of last week?
We need a second half of Chicagoean proportions.
Great play on 3rd and 1!
I know this is very much over-simplifying it, but that’s all he has to do.
Hand the ball off to Frank or Kenyan; pass it to Albert and Kenny and...
We scored 31 points against a defence that hadn’t allowed an opponent to rush for 100 yards all season last week so it’s not beyond the realms of...
Yeah, that’s what I do.
If the game isn’t on Sky, and so far this season, only the Pats' one has been, I look for another option.
Not really a surprise.
Any player would have been hard pressed to match his achievements.
Well done, Albert.
I really enjoyed the game. It was a great one and a great result. The win was an unexpected bonus.
Great performances by both offence and defence...
What a game. Fantastic character shown by the guys to stay in the game and finally win.
Yeah, we had a bit of luck, but you always need...
The D is doing a great job so far.
Let’s hope they can keep it up in the second half.
Great play by Jones!
As often as that?
I watched Nate Stanley playing for Iowa against Indiana earlier. I liked the look of him, but reading his Wikipedia entry, it...
I’d forgotten that we’d played the Titans in week 1, and considering they beat the reigning Super Bowl Champions tonight that was a credible result.
A very harsh lesson for all concerned.
It seems that the three wins against poor teams - no disrespect intended - have obviously masked how bad...
That was a mess.
Time for some trick plays, I think.
It’s one of those "If it can go wrong, it will" days.
The penalties are killing us.
I’m sure they will be doing that all week.
There is a first time for everything.
As much as we hate the Patriots and admire what they have done over the last 15 years or so, NFL history...
Thanks for the reply.
I had an idea that’s what it meant, but I appreciate the explanation.
Can you, or someone, explain what creating separation means, please?
Let us fly under the radar. I’m quite happy with that.
Heartbreaking for the guy.
We have certainly had more than our fair share of ACL injuries; Ryan and Raekwon last year, and now William.
Can we bring back Vinny Testaverde?
Is that Minkah you’re talking about?
I fear the worst for next week, but having been a Manchester City supporter for nearly 50 years, and a Dolfan for 35, it is ingrained in me.
That was shocking and only saved by two trick plays and a fantastic interception by Xavien Howard.
But a win’s a win, and the mark of a great...
Over a season it’s a pretty good indicator too.
Unless the wins are by large margins and the defeats by small ones, or vice-versa.
You can only play what’s in front of you. It’s not our fault that we’ve played teams with new coaches.
As we all know, bigger tests will come,...
Fair enough, but both Monday night teams are 0-1.
I’ve just been looking at the standings, and there are only seven teams - Dolphins, Bengals, Jaguars, Chiefs, Broncos, Buccaneers and the Rams -...
Thanks for the reply.
Missing a whole season, as McMillan did, is bound to have an effect on a young man. I’m sure he is still feeling his way...
So was Saban Mink's college coach?
And how is Raekwon McMillan doing after missing last season?
I know the Dolphins have a lot of support over here, probably most from around the time I started following them, so I’m not...
I must admit, I’ve never been convinced by Tannehill.
OK, he was never going to be Dan Marino, but he always gives the impression that he is one...
Kenyan Drake and Frank Gore seem to compliment each other.
78 yards between them today. OK, not great figures, but having two quality RBs will...
I don’t pretend to know or follow the Dolphins intimately, but I regard Miami as my football team.
I watch many sports, but my first...
I’ve just joined the forum, but I’ve been following the Dolphins since Dan Marino's rookie season. I live in the UK, but come over twice a...
