This portion of this wonderful Miami Dolphin article contains my notes. I saw and wrote down these notes and I really think you should see them. I take stupendous notes.
14 seconds. That’s how long the Miami Dolphins’ first drive started. Not sure about you, but that’s not that long.
Thomas Morstead did what he could to keep Miami in it. He punted beautifully and Elijah Campbell buried that guy on the first one.
Before it happened, I called Kader Kohou getting a holding penalty. I announced to everyone in the room and everything. That’s on me for putting that out into the world.
It’s time to talk about Christian Wilkins. That guy came to play. He was consistently in the backfield getting TFLs and causing havoc. He surely needs to make the pro bowl and even has a chance at all-pro. His motor never stops and he is easily playing the best football of his life.
It’s time to talk about Xavien Howard. He isn’t playing the best football of his life. In fact, he’s not playing better ball than Kader Kohou. Is he hurt, sick, having a tough time playing with that, cough cough groin injury? I don’t know. What I do know is that he can not run across the field at all and it shows nearly every game. Also, way to go not realizing you didn’t touch Mike Williams down on that throwback bomb.
Perhaps, the Dolphin’s Plan B offense should be based around the Fumblerooski? What an absurdly Miami Dolphins play. Great job by Terron Armstead to knock it back to Tyreek Hill.
Every 3rd down for Miami is 3rd and 9 or longer. That’s not going to work.
Jaelan Phillips is also playing very good ball right now. That beyond-terrible penalty when he sacked Herbert might be the worst of that variety that has happened all year. Collinsworth asked the ref on the headset if they can ever get to a point where that can be reviewable and the guy stammered. Yes, that play should be reviewed because it’s not hard to do.
Zach Sieler and Eric Rowe also played well. I can watch Sieler man-handle dudes all day and I stand by that statement.
Mike Gesicki is a ghost. I loved his time here but it’s over. Hope he does well, and I bet he will, where ever he goes next.
I’ll never understand why McDaniel doesn’t run more screens to the WRs. Give Tua some easy throws to get going that guaranteed will get 4-5 yards. Nope, keep throwing deep down the middle.
Alright Emmanuel Ocho, stop talking.
If you’ve given up or have moved off Tua because of this game, that’s weird to me. The guy delivered great games for five weeks and now when things are tough you’re going to leave? Have to give him the rest of the season to see if he can adjust. If he doesn’t, well…
You just know the Bills are going to look to absolutely pummel the Dolphin on Saturday night when snow is expected. That might get out of hand. Hopefully, I’m wrong.
