INCOGNITO IS A BEAST
Before we begin, how about that butt-whipping our Dolphins gave the jets this past weekend ... in New York. I think Richie Incognito said it best when he blew kisses at the Jets bench as he was leaving the field. I am sure it was in response to the trash talking the Jets did throughout the game.
DOLPHINS AT COLTS NFL DISTRIBUTION MAP
With the NFL touting the success of this rookie class you would think that this game would be nationally televised, but it isn't. It is trumped by Peyton Manning and if you are a Dolphins fan waiting for that first nationally televised game fo the season, that is a shame. You'll have to have the NFL Ticket or live in South Florida or Indiana to watch the game. Or, scroll down to our Chat Room information below and I'll tell you how to get it streaming.
So, how successful has this rookie class been? Check out the ratings by Pro Football Focus. If you are asking the best center in football who the best rookie QB is, then you will be happy to know that Dolphins center Mike Pouncey thinks that Tannehill is better than Luck, RGIII, and Russell Wilson. If fact, Pouncey compares Tannehill to Tom Brady. What?? Smells like "homer" comments to me ... sort of like our owner saying that Chad Henne was going to be the next Dan Marino. Yeah ... right.
"I think he’s the best rookie quarterback in the NFL right now. Tannehill’s a smart quarterback. I think he’s going to be one of those elite guys like Tom Brady when it comes said and done. Just his composure. His leadership in the huddle right now is just phenomenal. . . . I do see Tom, and the way he coordinates and runs his offense is the same as Tannehill does." (Mike Pouncey)
DOLPHINS AT COLTS INJURY REPORT
It looks like Nolan Carroll will get another week to gain starting experience as he takes over for Richard Marshall who is still out with a back injury. I'm not sure what our coaches see in Marshall, but Nolan Carroll has outplayed him in my opinion. In fact, PFF says so, too. If you were hoping to see Vontae Davis you won't get that chance as he is out with a knee injury. What we really need is for the Colts to lose a lot of games so that that 2nd round pick that we traded for will look better and better.
Miami quarterback Ryan Tannehill is questionable with a knee injury, but he took most of the reps in practice this week. Also questionable is receiver Brian Hartline (groin). Cornerback Richard Marshall is out, with a back injury. His former teammate, Dolphins-turned-Colts cornerback Vontae Davis is out, too, with a knee injury. Colts linebacker Robert Mathis is due to return after missing three games with a knee injury. PFT
CAM WAKE IS AFC DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE MONTH
Cameron Wake is racking up the NFL attaboys. He had 9 tackles and 3 sacks in 3 games in October and was voted the AFC Defensive Player of the Month of October. He ranks 4th in the NFL with his 7.5 sacks, but keep in mind that he got all of those sacks in the last four games that he has played. The last Dolphins player to win this award was Joey Porter back in 2008.
Cam Wake also was voted to USA Today's midseason NFL All Pro Team as one of two defensive ends.
