Post-mortem after 2nd loss in 2nd preseason game

Worried about the Dolphins?

Well, it is not exactly time to push panic buttons. But it is time to identify where such buttons are located because another month of this stuff is going to be bad.

"We know we're better than what we've showed," Dolphins quarterback Matt Moore said after last night's 23-17 loss to Carolina, a game which wasn't as close as the score because the Panthers totally outplayed the Dolphins early when the starters were in the game.

"Yeah, we should be a little concerned."

This was a game that was supposed to give clarity to the Dolphins quarterback competition. It didn't. Coach Joe Philbin was asked if he'll be able to go through with his plan of naming a starter for next week and he seemed at a loss for an answer.

"I don't know that to be honest with you," he said. "I really don't."

Nobody was happy with their work. Ryan Tannehill wasn't.

"Obviously, it didn't go the way I wanted it to go but I was excited to ge out there, compete with the guys and I think it's a starting point," he said.

True.

This also is true: As I wrote in my column Tannehill didn't get much help from anyone. Moore, meanwhile, failed to step up when he had the chance.

"We got a lot of work to do," Moore said. "You have to credit Carolina, they came out and played well. But we have a lot of stuff to work on."

The Dolphins ran the ball 12 times for 37 yards Friday night. Yet Philbin wasn't all that concerned about it. He said it has not been a point of emphasis. That's good. But maybe the Dolphins should start emphasizing it a bit.

Because the regular season is coming.

Agreed to be a Superbowl contender u need a team not a player.

But this year for 7-9 or below. We just need to see T-Hill at Qb and not Moore. If u want to keep people watching the fins.

I just don't want to see Tim Tebow starting before T-Hill. That's All.

I would've been OK with garrard for until like week 8. But we need to see the kid on the field this year. Screw matt Barkley give T-hill his Wr's. 1st and 2nd

Our Wr's are probably not that bad. Remember we have like 50 of them Philbin is just trying to get a look at all of them.

Plus, Flatline is our Super Top Secret Weapon.

Fact Checker,

I worked for Seaboard Marine many moon's ago and CEO/CFO H.H. Bresky didn't hire me either but the argument in question was about who specifically brought Ireland aboard, period! He was fast tracked by his mentor and it could have gone either way, unfortunately for us I believe the suit and title about 5 sizes to big for Mr. Ireland.

Just watched Peyton throw his 2nd pick tonight. Puts him at three so far this preseason. Does that mean T-hill is the better qb right now? LOL

Semantics

Dashi,
Garrard is/has been better than Tanne.
Garrard had surgery and will be back to start game 2.
Garrard is the starter and Moore is his backup.
Understand?

Few of them realize, as aptly demonstrated by Foreigner4Life, that they sufficiently understand the subtleties of the language enough to understand who is fooling them and who isn't.

Politics aside.

1st of all I am an American Born Citizen not a naturalized one making me and my loved ones as American as anybody else on this blog!

Unless I'm debating with a Native American Indian? If so I apologize to you and your people Sir, what tribe are you from??

Are Casino concessions cutting it for your folk on their Federalized lands??

The real issue with this Country are narrow minded folk like this Fact Checker with no concept of what actually made this a great Country, ideals about indelible rights ect...

I suggest you go join your brethren out in the woods and don't forget the white hoody either!

CashMoney = ?

fin4life aka FactChecker aka Dashi aka Odin's A sshole aka Daryl Dunphy aka oscar canosa aka Cuban Menace aka bobbyd12 aka Kris aka The Signal aka Joe's Garage aka HowHighWhatColor:

I don't remember my comment

Odin et al,
I'll hang out with you but if I got to change it I'm gonna take it.

You know what I'm talking about and so do I!!!

Moore > T-hill

My buddies wife looks like Norv Turner.
He's been my friend since childhood so we never say it out loud.

There is only ONE fin4life who walks it like he talks it on this blog. The reality though is that I'm probably holding a conversation with one moron posting under a slew of aliases.

fin4,
Odin rules this blog and your tongue is in his a sshole.

Russell Wilson looked good last week. Not that it matters for us, but still looking forward to watching him play tonight. Matt Flynn looked no better than T-hill.

Is this the chatroom?

I Never been in a real chatroom before.

flynn looks terrible and he actually has talent around him

Matt Moore is our QB he throws the ball far with his eyes closed I saw his picture.

I have 2 new friends bill connors and The Signal

will sherman ever run the ball? he seems to think this is still college and they dont need to run

Not even 'native' American Indians are from here. There are no indigenous Americans. Dumb people don't read and don't realize school taught them only to be dumb. Dumb they are.

4 of T-hills 6 posessions were 3 n out. “Obviously didn’t go as I wanted to go,” Tannehill said. “It’s tough to get going when you can’t get that first first down. Couldn’t ever find a rhythm.”

Darryl D, this is from theSMF who you engaged in conversation the other night. The same guy who talks about load swallowing all the time. Do you feel like a total idiot now?

This isnt a big surprise armando,

Its not like miami has the wildcat this year to bail them out...the biggest dissapointment for me is the fact that our defense is struggling mightily against everyone this year (AND NOT JUST THE FIRST STRING)...Wheres the pressure at???, so far our new look defense looks far too much like a liability and that is super bad for a team with next to no offense trying to play fast tempo

The defense is as bad as the offense.

Phelgm,
Go F uck Yourself.
Daryl Dumb-ass is my friend.

We knew we couldn't score points on offense coming into this season but the way our defense is playing...I wouldnt be at all surprised if coyle is the flying goat dismissed after one year...NO exscuse for our defense to be taking 2 steps back this year.... just sayin!!!

I'm a drunk loser with many, many names here....

I Might be Autistic but Ur Retarded

OUR GARAGE MANAGER IS MAKING ABOUT 2 MILLION A YEAR ....


HE SAVES 1.4 AND SPEND ABOUT 600,00 A YEAR ........


TIME FOR THE TRUTH ...

TO
BE
OR
NOT
TO
BE/.........

OH, I FORGOT IT'S DIFFICULT WITH UR CONDITION

superPhin, losing Mike Nolan is a big loss...

seems that most of the players agree with you scotty...still, I cant believe that their this bad already...there still is talent on that side of the ball that should be able to make them compete better as a group and yet the results thus far do not look promising!!!

MIKE NOLAN IS A FRAUD ..................


0-7.......ANY ONE ?

SINCE MIKE NOLAN WAS HIRED,WE LIVED IN THE CELLAR FOR GOOD .......

I got news for you aloco, if this team doesnt pick it up soon...starting 0-7 or worse will be the least of the dolphins problems this year...just sayin!!!

CAM PHILBIN IS A FRAUD ..................

1-15 CAM CAMERON .....ANY ONE ?

SUPERFIN.............AS LONG AS,WE DO HAVE OUR GARAGE MANAGER DECIDING WHO TO SIGN AND WHO TO RELEASE ,WE WILL NEVER MOUNT TO ANY THING BUT TRASH ......

DANSBY = 48 MILLION ,MY AZZZZZZZZZZZZ


GERRAD =ONE MILLION ,MY AZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ


D.THOMAS,MY AZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ


CHAD,MY AZZZZZZZZZZZZZ


TRADING MARSHALL, MY AZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

AND MORE

Who the hell would you have hired as Head Coach aloco???...assuming that anybody wanted the job and wanted to work with ireland as well...

I have got Moores back and ask why nobody mentions the 5 of Moores passes that were dropped? What about Clays non effort on the pass down the middle at the 10 yard line? I dont fault Matt at all. You will win more games and have a better team wih Matt at QB. He is the same guy he was last year with worse players around him. At this point I am thinking let Tanne start and trade Matt away for a decent reciever and let Garrard back him up.

OUR GARAGE MANAGER S\IGNED JASON TAYLOR ,JUST TO GIVE HIM A MILLION ..SO JT WON'T SPEACK AGAINST THE TEAM.......IT'S OUR GARAGE MANAGER WHO SHOULD SENT TO EXILE ,,,,,,,

A WOULD HIRE CHADWICKY,

WHO SAID THAT BESS,HARTLINE WOULD MOUNT TO ANY THING ?

moore hasnt done anything to set him apart from tannehill the first two games, defend him all you want...he hasnt even led miami to one scoring drive all year with the 1st or 2nd string groups...tanny has, besides moore is no better than maybe 2-3 more wins at best which wont amount to a playoff berth...PLAY THE ROOKIE!!

To the guy accusing me of posting stuff earlier, I haven't posted since shortly BEFORE the game last night.

I was too stunned(still am). I had to go back over my recordings of the first game and I've went back over this one twice(Watched it live-re-watched it....more to come).

I've arrived at some Cold Hard Facts. I'm still leary of posting the stuff because it's MIND BOGGLING.

I will say that Philbin, Sherman and Coyle have their work cut out for them. The cutdowns this year are going to be super, SUPER important. There's going to be some BIG TIME surprises too.

Two things.

1. Some "Big Names" from this team are going bye bye.

2. More than a Coupleof Starters this pre season won't be starting against the Texans.

Only thing i would critizice philbin thus far for is his calm demeaner, i think in some situations, he approaches players with less intimidation and more nerves the way he communicates to them, some players might feel that's a weakness for him...and i dont like his thoughts on what he looks for in recievers as well, im sorry but you need playmakers in west coast systems especially if you have a rookie QB starting for your team...Green Bay is definately NO exception to that rule when he was there....

Hey baby I'm back

As fans we need some perspective.

We went 7-9, 7-9 and 6-10. Then we completely overhauled the Coaching Staff.

Ireland is the ONLY holdover and the ONLY reason the "Powers That Be" won't call it what it is: A Total Re-Build.

Ross can't publicly back Ireland and say were re-building. That would bring up the question of why Ireland is still here if after 4 years of his services, we're STILL re-building?

Nobody is coming out and saying it, but that is exactly whats happening here. Ross can only save face by down playing the re-build, placing MOST of the blame on Parcells and "PUBLICLY" Trusting in Ireland.

The point is, and in regards to perspecftive, this Fan Base shouldn't be expecting miracles anytime soon.

I went out and picked up a super-duper garbage pizza at Kroger.
Did you miss me?
Are you ready for your pacifier?

Nobody wanted to work with Ireland. Cant blame them.

Odin darling can I give you a pacifier?

So we'll go 2-14 this year and draft Matt Barkley.

Odin,
I promise I won't look at your disability or your wheelchair.
I'll extend my penis to your mouth without regard to your age, race, ethinicity, or disability.

SuperPhin,

I tend to agree with your comments.

There is one thing I'd like to point out though. The one encouraging things I've noticed.

Check out how well were throwing the ball this year. It hasn't been mind boggling, but it's been **ALOT**. Alot of high percentage stuff thats been effective.

We have all kinds of problems with protection and the calibre of receivers we have. But even so, compared to last year, Tannehill and Moore are throwing the ball all over the place.

What I'm saying I guess, is I like the System! This is a passing league and compared to SpoRano, Henning and Dabolls offenses, we've definitely taken a step in the right direction.

As we get better, improve and start perfecting it, we might finally be able to hang with those quick scoring, passing offenses.

Things are bad now, but I think we're on the right track with Philbin and Sherman. Light years ahead of the last 4.

Odin Darling,
We've been talking in here for 4 years now; can we finally meet?

The passing game is non existent with these crap receivers.

Odin,
Finally in your whole miserable life someone says, "OK".
Somebody says, "ok let me meet Odin he and I have a lot in common".

Losing Nolan and Marshall off a 6-10 team is suicide.
