2015 Dolphins Draft Picks
A gigantic contract purge is financially difficult in 2018. The team's cap space would get obliterated if they walked away from bad contracts (Alonso, Branch, Suh). You can certainly clear some space and kick a few decisions down the road (Tannehill, Pouncey, Branch, Suh, Alonso, etc).
Whether we like it or not, next year is going to be a tweak year with hopefully some good draft picks and improved play from young guys. Don't forget Miami lost McMillian and Lippett before the season even started. They should certainly improve the defense.
In 2019 the cap savings are much better. They'd be the following (if Miami were to blow it up):
Suh - $15 million
Tannehill - $18 million
Alonso - $5 million
Branch - $7 million
Pouncey - $7 million
If Miami finishes with a top 10 pick this year, and that is looking very likely at this point, they will essentially have 2 first round picks (usually the top 40 players receive first round grades).
My remote control had working batteries, giving me the option to turn the game off early since I worked the next day.
We'll give Kenyan Drake an attaboy for his 66 yard touchdown run. It was a thing of beauty. But in the grand scheme of things, an insignificant play in what is shaping up to be an insignificant season.
294 yards rushing allowed, 548 total yards on offense allowed, 30 first downs, 35 minutes time of possession allowed to the Panthers, 11 of 14 on third downs allowed. The defense was a complete and utter failure. This defense resembled the defense we saw last season, and seems to be breaking down as the season goes on. Obviously some blame goes to the offense for being inept, but the performance against the Panthers was inexcusable.
Jay Cutler also looked inept. Missing easy throws and just looking like the game is too large for him to handle. He picks no one on his team up. He just goes out and sees if he gets lucky. I know Matt Moore is erratic, but at least we him you have the chance of getting a spark during any given game.
Has Adam Gase lost this team? With the trade of Ajayi, has he started losing the locker room a bit? All speculation at this point, but as for the job he is doing right now, the results speak for themselves. His team did not seem to be excited AT ALL while playing in front of a national audience.
We are incapable of winning in the trenches. Our defensive line is getting pushed around, even our high priced defensive tackle. Our offensive line is usually back pedaling on running plays. Hint: you're supposed to go the other way on runs. It's not pass protection, which you are equally bad at.
After a loss like that, the season seems pointless. It is the second time this season that a team puts a 40 spot on the Dolphins. Meanwhile the offense struggles just to score 3. I doubt we'll ever seen them put up 40 this season.
Next up is our bye week that never was against the Tampa Bay Bucs. Just a continuation of another season full of natural disasters and disastrous football being played by the offense... and now the defense is joining in the fun.
