The Dolphins first pre-season game against the Falcons is in the books. The Phins won the game 28-23. But, the score is not an indication of the Dolphins’ performance. After studying the game film, I would like to give you my take of the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.
Upon first viewing, I was shocked that the Phins gave up 17 points in the first quarter — going down 17-0. I thought, my Heavens, what happened to our top notch defense. However, after further review, the first team defense was only in for two series. The first series was a three and out with the Phins stopping three straight passing attempts by Matt Ryan. The second series was highlighted by the Falcons running all over the Phins — see below for “the Bad”.
So, here is my take on the game:
