Clay found some holes in the defense, and caught the ball very well. Good that he and Tannehill seem to have found some good chemistry. Tannehill's passes to Clay were on target and got him in stride.

Quote:
Welcome to the 2012, Charles Clay.

He had seven catches for 91 yards receiving all season. He had six catches for 84 yards and a 29-yard touchdown on Sunday. Was this a one-game wonder or who he can be consistently? Because this offense needs a tight end who can open up defenses.

If Tannehill didn't miss the throw it would have been two games in a row with a 20+ yard TD catch for Clay.

They definitely have the potential to do some serious damage against opposing defenses.

What play to Clay are you talking about?

I have heard this over and over. I missed the 1st half of the Bills game but went back and looked for this play. Can't find it.

Do you remember around what time it was?

It was late in the game, I believe it was the drive in which Tannehill threw an INT.

Clay was running a post down the middle and was wide open and Tannehill threw it too far to the left.

Clay caught that touchdown pass out of the backfield, not as a tight end. He was lined up as a near-side fullback and ran a wheel route...

Not that it makes a huge difference, but a fullback running a wheel route is a lot more difficult to cover than a tight end running a seam route. Would be nice if the Dolphins had both...

The more players we can get in the passing game the better. RT made some decent reads yesterday. And it was a great fingertip grab by Clay no doubt.

Not sure about Clay's blocking tho, pretty sure he missed a few blocks that caused negative plays.
Those outside stretch plays seem to go nowhere most of the time.

The TD pass yes, but he had a bunch of catches and I don't think all were him lined up as a fullback. I agree it would be nice if he could be both.

Tannehill, Clay, Thomas, Martin, etc. all need the same thing...consistency. No doubt there is some young talent on this team but it needs to develop into consistent production. Otherwise Miami will always be a .500 team that wows you one week and crushes you the next.

Lets hope this Sunday is a trap game and Clay does some damage in the Red Zone for points.

Thanks. Bad miss....although I don't see how that would have likely been a TD, Jammer?

He had the defender beat and an open road ahead of him. A thousand things could happen to prevent the TD, including sprinkler malfunction, but I think he goes for 6.

Clay caught other passes, some lined up at tight end.

It would have been a big play, but I don't see a TD on it....Although this is a pointless argument lol.

Looks like there is a safety in position to make a tackle, or at least slow him down enough for the two trailers to make a play on him.

If he hits him in stride that is a lot of real estate in front of him.

If Clay and Tannehill can get on the same page then the offense will take one step closer to where it needs to be. Having a versatile FB/TE like Clay gives Sherman a lot of options in the passing game.
