Post Hyde: Ten thoughts on Dolphins dismal loss
Quote:
By Dave Hyde November 19, 2010 07:50 AM1. I don't know how you judge Tyler Thigpen last night other than he wasn't the answer. It was like judging John Beck in 2007 when the offense was falling apart around him. But it would have been a longshot to consider Thigpen any long-term savior and, with the benching of Chad Henne, it's obvious the Dolphins are back in the market for a quarterback this off-season. Again.

It's time to pull out the stat that they've spent five second-round picks in six years chasing a quarterback (A.J. Feeley, Daunte Culpepper, Beck, Henne, Pat White). It's time to consider if Kevin Kolb or Michael Vick will be available from Philadelphia. It's time to consider Mel Kiper ranks the college quarterbacks: Andrew Luck (first overall), Ryan Mallett (8th), Cam Newton (15th) and Jake Locker (17th).

And there's six games left.

2. Brandon Marshall didn't deliver the half this offense needed before leaving with a hamstring injury. He dropped two passes. He was called for a dumb block in the back when Thigpen had run for a first down. Then after catching a first down he tossed the ball on the sideline at his former Denver quarterback, Jay Cutler, and was called for a taunting penalty. Be a pro.

...

4. Let's not even mention playoffs, OK? ...

5. Even given the injuries, it's inexplicable the Dolphins ran Ronnie (3 carries, 10 yards) and Ricky (3, 1) just six times in the game. Six. It's not like the score dictated that ... Where were the rollouts for Thigpen that helped him against the Titans? I'm not saying any of this would have changed the outcome. It's just a strange playcalling.

6. It's time to call up center Jake Grove and guard Donald Thomas, isn't it?

...

9. This has a chance of getting ugly.

How about be gone or be unemployed.

Both need to be back on this team. Not real sure how Thomas lost his spot other than the guy they brought in came from their past.

I find it amazing that with all the picks and free agent moves we have made on the offensive line that we have such an awful one. Jake Long, and maybe Vernon Carey, are about the only players worth keeping at this point.
