I would hope a team in need of chemistry building would take advantage of these games to build some with the new guys.

Its nice to have football back either way

I was actually at Brandon Marshall's first preseason game. I wasn't expecting a miracle, but I knew something wasn't right immediately. There was just no connection. Just looked sloppy.

I am trying not to get my hopes up with Mike Wallace, but its too late. I want to see a long TD, but I'll settle for just a reception, lol.

If the Dolphins OL can't hold against the jags, I don't know what this season is going to be like.

Fantastic start to the game again offensively....Geez.

The 3rd down play was a coverage sack on 3rd and long. Not a big deal. But how does the pocket collapse on the very first pass play, against the freaking Jaguars?


Tannehill isn't comfortable in the slightest.

One of the things that impressed me most last year was how comfortable he looked. No Jake Long?

It's the interior, not Martin/Clabo.

His feet definitely weren't set. He threw it off-balance as he was still rolling to the side.

I'm watching the Jags feed online and man I do not miss Henne. They showed a brief interview he did and what a Hennebot he really is.

That is without a doubt the worst uniform in the NFL. Two-tone helmet is the worst.

Did not see the game. Did the starters do halfway decent and did the uniforms get any better??

LOL Finesse they wore the all white tonight, so if you like that look then yes they got better.

The offense slumped the first 2 drives then came out and had a nice touchdown drive, led by Dustin Keller on 2 big catches, including a touchdown.

The interior of the o-line looked pathetic. I noticed Samuda get owned on one play, but luckily Tannehill used them legs to break away. This Offensive Line has got to be fixed or this will be a long season for Tannehill... you can tell he doesn't trust the guys in front of him.

Mike Wallace and Brian Hartline both played... I think Hartline got a catch but Wallace didn't even see a look.

Chad Bumphis looked amazing... AGAIN.

Defense got slashed up by backup runningbacks again... but the pass defense was really good.

WE LED THE TURNOVER BATTLE 4 TO 1!

Uhh... yeah that sums it up.

This is a good reason to win 1 or 2 more games this year. He is a weapon.

Bumphis is giving me hope for a more wide open offense....options aplenty for our rising star QB to throw to.

Wallace
Hartline
Keller
Bumphis
Gibson

That's a nice pack of receivers....someone should be open every down.


I think we can cut away with Thomas. Jonas Gray looks like a legit goal line back.

those Jaguar Uniforms are an abomination. Thank God we didn't go with that look. Ours look streamline and clean...I like that.


Saw that Wake beat Luke Joeckel to get to Gabbert.
How the heck did Nolan Carroll get an interception? Were his eyes closed?

I liked seeing Tannehill hook up with Keller on those two plays, and the TD grab was a great catch by Keller. Really happy we picked him up.
Daniel Thomas looks like his usual self, so I wont get excited since he will be injured by week 3.
The picks were fluff IMO, one on a tipped pass and the ball fell in his hands, another was a throw even Henne wouldnt have made by the 3rd QB, floated so long half the crowd had a shot at it.
Vernon was invisible, did not see him getting pressure like we have been reading. Also Jordan is not even in the game til late, I hope its just them hiding something, cause I am waiting to see this freak of a specimen we had to have....


The o line looks horrendous, no chance for the QB to even see his options.

You saw the best uniforms in the league (Dolphins) vs the worst (jags) last night.

Actually, the Carolina Panthers blue on black uniforms were voted the best uniform ever on the NFL Network. I live in Charlotte, but personally I'm not a big fan. Carolina Blue is too close to baby blue for my taste.

Being objective, I have to say the Raiders' uniforms have always been my favorite.

I think our RT TD came when we played the Jags 2nd unit. Our first possesion was 3 plays, 1yrd. The whole O looks like crap.

Wanted to share CKParrothead's thoughts on the O-line (in particular Martin). He really hit the nail on the head as far as I'm concerned. This guy really does know how to break things down from all angles possible.

Quote:
Jonathan Martin had a good showing against the Jaguars and Jason Babin, after a shaky showing against Kyle Wilber and the Cowboys.

You could tell the Dolphins expected Martin to struggle more than he did just by virtue of the play calling. There was a lot more max protect, which allows Richie Incognito to more aggressively protect Martin's inside shoulder, while compressing Martin's lateral area of responsibility. And specifically they sent chip blocks from backs and tight ends to Jonathan Martin's side on 3 out of 13 pass plays. They didn't send chip blocks toward Tyson Clabo's man a single time, as a comparison.

But there were several occasions where Jonathan Martin just had to match up one-on-one with the 33 year old Jason Babin in pass rush, and he really handled Babin. If I were the Jaguars I would be a little concerned that the Eagles knew what they were doing a year ago when they cut Babin. A year ago, Martin's only statistically good game at left tackle came against the Jaguars and Jason Babin.

The bad news is that with the extra help being run at Jonathan Martin's side there was less help for some of the guys that actually needed it in the game, namely Josh Samuda and Tyson Clabo. Samuda struggling a little doesn't bother me as you expect him to be the weak link. He's young and he's fighting for the job. Tyson Clabo is supposed to be a rock though, and his struggling does bother me because he's turning 32 years old this season and at any point you could start to see that drop off to where he's no longer viable. It could happen any year, and obviously that's what the Falcons feared when they let him go.

This Jonathan Martin stuff with some people on this board has become obsessive and just a chance for them to stake their vendettas against various other people, and take any opportunity to come off looking like the smartest guy in the room. It's become an emotional topic for so many people that they're resorting to all kinds of personal insults and going out of their way to say this or that. The intelligence level of discussion on this player is dropping very quickly.

Personally, I'm worried. There's no alternative to Jonathan Martin. Dallas Thomas does not look good in that role. Whatever Martin is, we're going to have to live with it. And last year, Martin was very, very bad. He wasn't just "sub par" or anything like that. We can't afford for him to be that way and I think this game actually showed us a great example of why that is. Even though it wasn't Martin that was struggling against the Jaguars, the offensive line DID struggle with the pass protection, and it essentially erased the new $60 million weapon that Miami bought in the off season. That's what is at stake. That's where the rubber meets the road.

And the road ahead is no cake walk. He will face Jabaal Sheard, Barkevious Mingo, Robert Mathis, Bjoern Werner, Osi Umenyiora, Will Smith, Terrell Suggs, Pernell McPhee, Mario Williams (x2), Manny Lawson (x2), Chandler Jones (x2), Michael Johnson, James Harrison, Da'Quan Bowers, Adrian Clayborn, Dwight Freeney, Greg Hardy, Antwan Barnes (x2), Quinton Coples (x2) and Jarvis Jones. That's not an easy road. It's not a road full of Kyle Wilbers and 33 year old Jason Babins.

The game the other night had sort of good and bad, for those who are interested in objective details in full accounting. But this is a subject that is quickly declining to where fewer and fewer people are interested in that. On the plus side, Martin really did play pretty well. On the minus side, the coaching staff showed in their play calling and game planning that they don't trust him. And also on the negative side, we got our first real data point on the flip side of the question that developed over the first two weeks of training camp about whether Olivier Vernon was that good or Jonathan Martin that bad. Eugene Monroe handled Olivier Vernon in pass rush like a kitten.

So we're just going to have to wait and find out.
