We Got Bigger Problems Than Jay Cutler's Wildcat Role

Can we take a day off already from Jay Cutler's statuesque pose.

It was one play on a dismal day.

It was not, I repeat, not the reason we lost.

Our O Line is getting blown off the ball. Jay Ajayi barely gets his hands on the ball when he is getting hit.

Ajayi is trying to find holes where they just don't exist.

Gase is having Cutler dump the ball off on quick WR screens because, let's face it, he just doesn't have a lot of time to stand back there and do his Wildcat pose looking down field for an open receiver.

If anyone deserves any amount of heat, it's the O Line and the O Line coaches.

Let's rip them a new a_ _ hole. Let's kick them either in the butt or to the curb.

If our offense could get into a rhythm and eat up some clock and yards, everything else will take of itself and fall into place.

The Defense will rest. Field position will favor us and most importantly points will accumulate.

Jay Cutler may not be the great leader of men in comparison to General George Patton.

He doesn't hold a candle to Sgt. John Basilone.  (This one you'll have to google. Hint: huge Marine hero from my neck of the woods.)

But we knew this going in.

Cutler is nothing more than a stop gap between Tannehill starts. That's it.

And frankly, Tannehill would have had problems with the performance, or lack thereof, of our O Line.

Unfortunately, our issue requires 5 guys to work hard and play together. 5 guys.

If one idiot takes a play off, the whole system goes kapoohy. (Hint: to shit)

One idiot. One false start. One missed block. One holding penalty.

Those we have seen plenty of.

In those most memorable words of Rev. Martin Luther King "3 and out, 3 and out, oh Lord have mercy, we are 3 and out!" (Hint: not really his words)

Phins Up!!!

Are the dolphins cursed?

Depending on what you believe then...perhaps?

I made reference to it in an earlier comment. Here’s the bigger picture from an article a couple years ago. https://deadspin.com/the-dolphins-stadium-is-literally-built-on-an-indian-bu-1638547584

Read more about construction here http://articles.latimes.com/1987-08-16/sports/sp-1898_1_joe-robbie

And one piece of info from 1985. Keep in mind that the team has more or less been mediocre since they moved into the facility in 1987.


Dave’s take: just stay in London

I don’t watch much dolphins football these days. But once I remembered there was a game on from London, I tuned in. It was with about 5 minutes left in the half, and clearly I missed nothing to that point. By halftime, I was already bored and I proceeded to do various activities but had one eye on the tv...

It was hard to watch.

No points?! And 6 in absolute garbage time last week. Good thing they scored 19 their first week so they can average 8 points per game. Wow.

In my humble opinion this play summed a lot of it up. While cutler couldn’t be bothered, it wasn’t just him. The team just seems unenthusiastic. They are just going through the motions for the most part.  And if you’re going to give up on the team, that seems like a good enough reason to me. If they don’t care, why should you?


It's like DEJA BOOO All Over Again!

I thought FOX TV lost it's signal and with the help of special effects, inserted the Saints uniforms over the Jets uniforms and replayed that game.

If it wasn't so sad it would be funny.

Our offense that is.

Which is quite offensive to our fan base.

When your defense holds Drew Breeze to 20 points, you should be able to win the game.

We weren't even in it after Cutler's interception in the end zone.

I bet the refs threw their flags for more yards than Cutler did.

The play calling was ridiculous. Case in point, we ran the ball 2 plays in a row for 20 yards and Gase calls for a Wild Cat Formation!!!

What is he thinking about?

Ok. I have vented. I feel better.

Not really.

1-2 is not the end of the world. But scoring only 6 points in 8 quarters is.

Something has to change. And in a hurry.

It's your turn to vent.

At least it's only 1 PM right now and I can still do something else today.

Phins Up!!

The Dolphins Are...

The Dolphins are the new Jets!

Wait, that's an insult to the Jets...

The Dolphins are the new Browns!

Wait, That's an insult to them as well...

They are truly in a league if their own!

Hahahahahaha. This is great..

Cheers!

This Dolphins offense is bad. Horribly bad. I was very hopeful it would be better but once again Miami has let us all down. 

Cheers to the rest of the season! At least I can cheer for my fantasy players!
