« Room and time to be better for Dolphins | Main | The breakdown of Ryan Tannehill's first game »

Mike Sherman has a lot of work to do

All eyes are on the Dolphins offense now. That's what happens when a unit seems to lack talent and not only doesn't score any touchdowns but makes mistakes (turnovers) that lead to 24 points for the other team.

That's not the way it should be.

And so this week offensive coordinator Mike Sherman has to address a lot of things. He started addressing those when he spoke to the media Monday.

This is all he said:

(On the number of batted passes during Sunday’s game) -“I think there were six.”

(On if there is any thought about altering Tannehill’s release, or is it a case of looking for open passing lanes or offensive linemen needing to get defenders hands down) – “I think the second thing you had is probably more appropriate (Open passing lanes).”

(On the 19 balls that Tannehill got batted down in his last year at Texas A&M) –“There were only three of them that we thought were his fault. I don’t think that’s going to be a problem. It was in the game the other day, no question, but the gentleman, (Texans Defensive End J.J.) Watt, has a history of knocking balls down. He’s pretty good at it; I think he had four. And a couple of them were on twists coming down, so the quarterback wouldn’t have seen them anyways. It’s definitely something we’re looking at hard, and checking where he’s putting his eyes. He’ll be better this week with that.”

(On whether there is something that the offensive line could do to help the situation) –“Yeah, most of the time I just put that on the quarterback; he has to find the passing lane. You know guys are a little bit taller in this league, a little bit bigger, windows are a little bit smaller, and these guys have a lot of range. So it’s just something that he has to work through, and he will. He’ll be much better this week. He hasn’t had a problem with it in practice. It has not been an issue, which you would think this would be a reoccurring issue in practice. If you talk to the defensive coaches and players, they didn’t see this as a problem until the other day. But (the Texans) defensive line coach, Bill Kollar, is known very well, is a great coach, and they do a good job of the minute they read three step, hands are going up. You have to give them part of the credit. We’ll take some of the blame, but you have to give them some of the credit on a job well done.”

(On whether all of the batted balls came on three-step drops, and whether there is something to that) –“I believe so, yeah. When you drop shorter, the ball comes out a little bit (quicker), your eyes get quicker to where your target is. It’s hard to look people off at that time. Yeah they were three-step, yup."

(On whether he thinks that Houston is better than the rest of the league at batting balls down) –“I think it’s something that we have to address. It’s not just going to go away. I give Houston a lot of credit for what they did, and they are very good at it. I don’t know if everybody else is as good, but I’m not going to say that we’re not going to get any balls tipped if we’re not playing Houston. There are other teams that will see what they did and try to do the same thing."

(On how far Ryan Tannehill has progressed) –“I think the next game will be huge for him. I think from the first game to the second game, for any team, its huge, especially for a young quarterback. One thing I know about Ryan, he corrects himself and he is accountable. ‘I can do that better,’ and he fixes things. That’s the thing that always sticks with me in regard to him. He’s very conscience of what he needs to work on and then he spends time working on it and tries to get it right. So I’ll take the blame for it; I should have prepped him better for this than I did. He’ll be much better next week.”

(On his sideline demeanor) – “Yeah he’s, ‘let’s get on to the next play.’ He has the attitude that you want from a quarterback. I’ve been around some quarterbacks that have some phenomenal ability, but they don’t have that resiliency, and they struggle. I’ve also been around guys that don’t have quite the ability but have the resiliency, and they survive and survive well. So you have to have that mindset that, ‘ok we’ll fix it and move on to the next play.’ So, you know he’s mad at himself, but he’s not desperate or in despair.”

(On the thought process behind running the ball before the end of the first half instead of taking a knee against the Texans) –“You’re talking about the fumble, are you talking about the pass? Ok, well whether it’s right or wrong, whether there’s 45 seconds on the clock, we could have taken a knee, you’re right. It probably would have been safer, we probably wouldn’t have turned the ball over, but with 45 seconds left you have a chance maybe to break a run, rally, and then take a shot at the end zone. So that was our thinking going into it. If it was 10 seconds, 10-12 seconds, then I probably say take a knee. Forty-five seconds in a football game and we had timeouts left too, we just figured if we broke one, then we could take a shot, and that would be the right thing to do. If we had done what we were supposed to do there and blocked it correctly, then it wouldn’t have even happened, but we didn’t and so we turned the ball over.”

(On the Texans game planning to bat the ball down against a short passing game typically used with young quarterbacks, and if it will be a challenge moving forward) –“I don’t think so, because I don’t think that we did an inordinate amount of short passes. I know I wanted to start the game that way, and those didn’t get tipped. But I’m sure that would be a good philosophy that they could have because they are great rushing the quarterback. Those ends were the best in the league last year at pressuring the quarterback and we definitely didn’t want to get him beat up or sacked early in the game. But it really wasn’t a problem until our fourth possession, which is when it really started to unfold. The first three possessions I think we were pretty clean on stuff.”

(On whether his offensive success with past teams is motivating him to improve this offense for next week’s game) – “Winning the game is the ultimate objective obviously. However you can win the football game, that’s what you’re shooting for, but on the offensive side of the coin, we certainly let our defense down. There were a number of good things that happened in the ball game. I thought that we were able to run the ball well early, and could have continued to run the ball if the game hadn’t changed on us the way it did with the turnovers. I felt like we could move the ball, but didn’t do well, when we had some opportunities. We had some field position, we had the ball in the red zone, but didn’t put the ball in the end zone, and that’s a big concern of mine, that we’re down there on a couple of occasions and didn’t score touchdowns. Even late in the game when the game was out of hand, we had an opportunity to put it in the end zone and we didn’t take advantage of that. So as a competitor, yeah it does bother me.”

(On Tannehill’s fourth-down throws when he didn’t throw the ball into the end zone)– “Well, they were smart. Wade (Phillips’) has been doing this a long time. He made some really good calls and we had to put people into the end zone in order to take a shot. At the same time, they had everybody playing a picket fence back there and didn’t give us the end zone shot. So he elected to check it down hoping that he could run it in and that didn’t happen. Probably next time, he moves his feet a little bit, pumps and then maybe just throws it into the end zone on fourth down.”

(On how troubling it was that Davone Bess was the only receiver to catch a ball until the fourth quarter)– “If I thought it was going to be a problem this year, I don’t think it will be a problem. I think more receivers, I think the preseason has shown that the ball’s going to be spread around quite a bit. I’m not overly concerned with that because we had other guy’s catching balls. Reggie (Bush) was catching balls. (Anthony) Fasano was catching balls. (Daniel) Thomas got a screen, big, big screen. I’m not overly concerned with that, but if it ends up being a pattern, it would definitely be a concern that the receivers aren’t catching the balls.”

BPA,
Ginn's last season here he put up 1200 return yds + 600 recieving yds. That's 1800 yds total.
Tell me who we have that has done that and or will do that.

The Giants 3rd round draft pick this year was Jayron Hosly CB VT.
Hosley is better than everyone on our team with the exception of Reggie Bush.

I understand..new coach, new schemes, things take time to gel.


I understand, last years draft and this years still need time to mature, those that are left.


I understand.

But..........

The way we lost, the total self-destruction, is a bad, bad omen of things to come.

JJ Watt claims he learned a lot about the Dolphins from watching Hard Knocks; like snap count & some signals used by the Fins. Sherman needs to address that as well if true.

Take the handcuffs off and open this sucker up against the Raiders!

This is the team Ireland puts on the field in a make or break year for his job?

i wished I lived in Miami. Everyone who goes to the game should have a fire Ireland poster

Be a boss Ross!

Tracy, Tannehill's problems with batted down passes were evident in training camp and practices....extending to college, with Sherman. Seems like a habit that Sherman needed to correct a long time ago! What say you?

Jake in PA, last year we got a banner plane to fly around the stadium dragging a banner that said "Fire Ireland!"

Hopefully Carpenter's leg is ready. gonna be a 15 to 10 Fins win! This game we gotta go back to Sparano fist pumpin field goal style to get a win!

I know Redsky, gotta get louder and more bold somehow! If Ross sees everyone in the place with a sign, He should get the message

Thank the good lord Idiot Odin's must have Passed out.

Not exactly Dik Breath. I almost fell asleep though, from reading the boring dribble posted under 10 different sign-in names though.

I mean, whats the point? You want me to respond to this crap? You've been posting about what a degenerate racist pig you are for the past hour?

Racism was a riveting topic for discussion..........45 years ago. Sheesh Brother, buy a clue!

Another thing, how many different ways can you come up with, to say everything Miami sucks(yaaaaaaawn)? You've proven your point. When it comes to sucking, you're OBVIOUSLY the expert. Same old, same old.......give it a rest already.
--------------------------------------------------

Now, if you want to talk about our Front 4 transitioning to the 4-3, I'm all in.

Wake is a beast! He was drawing double and sometimes tripleteams(counting the chip). This is what contributed to our tackles getting good pressure up the middle.

Odrick is improving and plays the run like a wild man. Still lacks the full compliment of pass rushing moves and it shows.

I think the Coaches found somewhat of an answer for getting pressure on passing downs. The were sliding Odrick inside and letting Starks out to bookend with Wake. We didn't get high enough sack totals, but Starks out at LDE was definitely more effective there than Odrick and/or Misi(who got a couple reps there).

Vernon got 1 tackle in 18 snaps. No QB pressures, hurries or hits. He did however set the edge and contain fairly well on a few plays. Looks very solid for a Rookie DE playing in his first game.

Undrafted Rookie DE Derrick Shelby only got 13 reps, but did get some pressure and at least 1 hurry(I think 2 or 3 is more like it)accredited. He's been outplying Vernon since they arrived. And because of Vernon's draft status, he'll have to continue doing so to get any playing time. So far, so good. This guy can really turn into a find.

Kheeston Randle(wasn't he an undrafted rookie as well?)also got in the game and made a few nice plays. It doesn't sound like much, but he did make good on the limited opportunities.

I know the sky is falling and everything sucks. But I personally LOVE the way were adapting to the 4-3. At least up front. We have a solid/very good front 4. We also have alot of quality depth and versatility with guys like Odrick and Starks playing inside or out at a high level. McDaniels as well. He's a key depth guy and can play end as well as tackle.

Add in this years very promising Rookie trio of Vernon, Shelby and Randle; and our Defensive Front 4 looks set for the next 5 to 10 years.
----------------------------------------

One caveat: Nothing much has changed in that we STILL need a legitimate pass rushing threat opposite Wake. Moving Starks outside on Passing Downs is a definite improvement/upgrade(over Odrick and Misi). But I'd like to see more. Hopefully Vernon or Shelby just comes out of nowhere to become that threat.

Odin, When you stick to football analysis, I like it

Our defensive front is good. All the more reason our linebackers should be better. I would think that they may give Nolan more snaps at safety this week( Clemons sucks). If Smith and Marshall can't shut down DHB and the rest of the raiders pathetic WRs we are in trouble

OMG! The NFL Channel is getting as boring and redundant as the resident troll here.

A HUGE FREAKING - Puuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuke!

Who gives a flying freak about the lowly jets back up quarterback?

Has it really come to this? With a new season on and all the talking head pundits money can buy. Yet the NFL Network has to STOOP to this?

Wreeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeetch!

Fall forward fast.

This is the worst Dolphin team ever.

Ross wants fans to have "Faith and Patience". This season 2012 is already doomed thanks to the talented talent seeker Jeff Ireland. You get what you pay for. These guys just don't care about this team winning. The Heat brought in elite playerss and look at the outcome. What elite player do the Fins have? Cheapskate=Ross. Dumb=Ross. Faith? Patience? It doesn't matter, 2013, 2914 2915... as long as Ireland is GM we will continue to loose.

I remember when the Fins finished 7 and 9 in 1979 I think it was,and I thought the world was ending. That was rebuilding under Shula. Back to the Super Bowl in '82 and Dan "the man" the next year.

Posted by: Jake in Pa | September 11, 2012 at 10:05 PM

Right back at you Jake ;)

Thanks!

What odds are you giving us against Oakland?

They obviously have some problems, but when they get in a groove, they looked fairly decent. McFadden is a nightmare if you let him get going.

And Streeter? STREETER! He's coming on like Gang Busters. Ok, maybe not gangbusters, but he looked damn good for a rookie. Better looking than alot of the WR's we got.

I had Streeter as a late round flyer in my Armchair GM's Mock Draft this year. He seems to be adapting to the NFL very quickly.

The Raiders Defense is starting to look pretty good too. I know they gave up all those points to the Chargers, but like us, most of it was due to the implosion by the long snapper.

Either way, it should be an interesting game.

LOL!!!! Obama says Miami sucks.

Maybe we can get Romney in here to fix everything up. Two vulture capitalists has to be better than one right?

I really think it will be a battle of field goals. It's really an even match up. Mcfadden is awesome but Bush can do the same for us. I think our lines are better and overall our special teams as well. Both secondaries are weak as are the receivers. The key will be turnovers. Wake and the boys need to harass Palmer into fumbles and picks. I don't see us winning if its even in the 4th. Although I've always like Carpenter, Janikowski can nail it from 65 I bet if the games on the line. Best strategy overall would be to only pass on early downs, run Bush every chance and let Fields give us better field position. Hopefully they don't figure out their long snapping issue.

I like our chances against Oakland. I say here comes a Dolphin home win.

Jake,

Good post. I pretty much agree. Bush cancels out McFadden. Actually I would just about take Bush, provided Sherman gets him more involved in the passing game. I saw Bush excel in the slot even in NO's.

I wouldn't go overboard, but I'd get him a lot more swing passes and quick ones out on the flats. Especially if the pass rush is getting heavy after Tannehill, hit Bush with all kinds of Screens, screens, screens!

The lines are the only exception with your post. I think our O-Line is easily better than theirs. The D-lines are closer though. As much as I like ours, it's hard to say were clearly better than theirs.

Turnovers will tell the story as they often do. Both teams will be coming off of losses caused by turning the ball over. That why I agree with you so much on this point. We have to get to Palmer early and often. He seems to be easy to rattle. Get this guy frustrated and he starts throwing picks. He's done this his whole career. Not real great under heavy pressure.

I agree, I can easily see a slug-fest, field position battle determined by who makes the least amount of mistakes.

If Sean Smith will ever get a pick 6 this is the week for it. I hope they are studying up on those out patterns Palmer was attempting. This is the week Odrick better show he's a number 1 pick. A #1 does a hell of alot more than he has shown us. It's time for him, Dansby and Burnett to do something. If they are gonna win these guys have to match their contracts

Oops, my mistake. Not that it matters, but I quoted a stat wrong above.

Derrick Shelby was credited with 2 QB pressures and a hurry in 13 snaps.

So I guess there were no positives about doing Hard Knocks, it was a total mistake and embarrassment and distraction.

And I never watched an episode of Hard Knocks. Ever. In my life.
Why would I?
That's like watching Jersey shore.
JFC

Jake in Pa for GM in 2012/2013. Fins will win Sunday. Superior coaching and strategy

MIKE SHERMAN IS VERY LUCKY MAN....


HE GOT HIS CONTRACT AND HIS MONEY TO COACH LOUSY PLAYERS,HE CAN BLAME THEM AND RUN TO THE BANK .....

I AM TIRED OF ALL OF THESE EXCUSES FROM YOU SORRY ASS FOLKS. AND PLEASE, DON'T MAKE EXCUSES FOR JAKE LONG, WASN'T HE THE TOP PICK A FEW YEARS AGO. HE IS SUPPOSE TO BE ONE OF THE BEST AT HIS POSITION. WE JUST DON'T HAVE THE TALENT AS USUAL AND THE SAME OLE A*# HOLE SELECTING PLAYERS (IRELAND). NO ELITE PLAYERS, NO IMPROVEMENT TOWARDS A PLAYOFF CALIBER TEAM. FIRE IRELAND AND MAYBE WE CAN START. WE COULD HAVE HAD PIERRE-PAUL, GRONKOWSKI, PATRICK WILLIS, JUST TO NAME A FEW.

All the people going to the stadium should bring a poster that reads: Mr Ross, is either Jeff Ireland or me...

So I guess there were no positives about doing Hard Knocks, it was a total mistake and embarrassment and distraction.

Posted by: LincolnContinental | September 11, 2012 at 10:55 PM

Of course it was, of course. Everything Miami sucks, why not us doing Hard Knocks too-lol?

Gee - I'm sure Watts got Tannehill's cadence down from Hard Knocks.

I mean, why would he watch any of our FOUR PRE SEASON games for THAT, when he can simply watch Hard Knocks?

ROTFLMFAO......AND........SMH ;)

The Tard at the Herald are now saying we suck and we suck even worse for doing Hard Knocks. Ross is stupid for doing it. Ireland sucks harder because we did it. And Philbin should be fired because he agreed with Ross and Ireland in having us do it.

The logic and reasoning being that JJ Watt sniffed out Tannehill's cadence/snap count by watching Hard Knocks.

I guess we do suck(sarcasm)for doing Hard Knocks.

I still can't help but wonder though, why did Watt use Hard Knocks to get Tannehills cadence/snap count?

I mean, he had tapes of all 4 of our pre season games and the whole team has been using them ALL WEEK to prepare for the game.

(Yes.....MORE sarcasm-Duh!)

We have to get some regularity here so we can have some good back and forths.

There's back and forths at the Herald, but it ain't good. Judging by the logic and reasoning skills exhibited in the post above, NO! The blog troll over there is NOT smarter than a 4th grader-lol. And if that's not bad enough, he accounts for at least 75% of the posts there.

(Big Sigh..........)

Proof that Ross is a certified IDIOT. He wants the fans to have faith and patience. I guess he doesn't realize we've been patient since 1999.

Philbin says, “We were looking to have a reference point to find out exactly where we are. We have a lot of work to do.” I know eaxactly where we are-- look at the damn record last year and the sorry players on the field this year and that should give you a clue.

We'll probably keep Tannehill for 2 or 3 years ( like Henne) because he was a first round pick. Then we'll get a new coach in 2015, probably the O.C. from Ft.Pierce High Scool and we will start rebuilding again.

Sad but probably true, Fin-ality.

Well, there is a silver lining after all. And Ireland actually did something right for a change.

When we cut Tanne in two years, it won't cost us that much.

Sorry again, my post at 11:52 was supposed to read:

**Re-Post From DolphinTalk.Wordpress.Com**

Well then, don't you dare have any faith and patience!

Do whatever it is you do, when you don't have any faith or patience.

Do it NOW! Get Own Down Wit Cha Bad Self!


Still: SMH ;)

Yeah! Probably sad and probably true Finality..........and Jack Sparrow.

Oh MAN! It is SO probably true!

That idiot Ross ain't forcing us to have faith and patience.

Nosiree Not! Not us Three Amigos. Right Finality and Jack Sparrow?

Nobody....and I repeat NOBODY is forcing The Three Amigos to have Faith and Patience(Wait? Did I already say that? Who cares)! Ain't gonna do it!

YOU CAN'T MAKE US!

Anyone with sense knew to trade the house for RG3. Then u trade Marshall for Egnew. U wasted picks on Gates just because he ran a fast 40. U passed on Demarco Murray for Mr. fumble D. Thomas.
Pouncey and Oddick has not won us anything.
Dumb Ireland, the smart people knew our offense would be a joke without receivers. Even Greg Camarillio would be our best WR right now, lol.
We still can't cover tight ends in the middle of the field, which is an embarrasment.
And how do u draft Henne without Mario Manningham? That made no sense.
Giving Ireland draft picks is Insanity!

Yeah, it's ok that Watt batted the balls down, because he's good at it. Just like it's okay to throw interceptions to Ed reed because he's good at it. Not the QB's fault when the other team is good. THAT is the kind of thinking that got Mike Sherman a 4-12 record and fired in Green Bay. That is the type of thinking that got him fired from Texas A&M too. And, I hope and pray, he gets fired from Miami soon

From brilliant Mike Sherman "they had everybody playing a picket fence back there and didn’t give us the end zone shot." They didn't GIVE us the end zone? Do you guys see what he's saying? If they GAVE us the touchdowns, then Tannehill would have scored one. But when the other team doesn't GIVE you a touchdown, you can't expect the qb to score. Are you kidding me? This stooge needs to go, along with his buddy Philbin who brought him in.

Agreed to much over reaction.

Hard Knocks has nothing to do with all the game tape players watch, Real Football film. GIVE IT A BREAK!!!

The show has no weight on a teams study habits on the Dolphins. It just Proves JJ Watt is a Fan of the Dolphins, Nothing Else.

Also the Ignorant Blasphemous hate towards Philbin and T-Hill is absurd! Give it a Break it's one game.

At least we didn't look like last years opener.

This team is Disciplined and Well-Conditioned. 2 things last years team lacked. The offense will come around and so will the defense, Probably by week 8. But until then lets at least win 2 or 3 games.

28-13 Fins!!

Lets whoop the Raiders!

If we don't beat Oakland, we shouldn't expect to beat any other team.

This team is utter garbage.

IRELAND WILL BE FIRED N WEEKS.I

Misi May Now Be Example Of How Ireland Drafts Right Player For Wrong System:

Misi was originally drafted for 3-4 defensive system. We all knew he struggled the last 2 seasons in that system. Now look what happens now that he's in the 4-3 defensive system Sunday against Houston.

"Misi benefited from the stout play of the defensive line in Miami’s base 4-3 alignment by being allowed to run free from sideline to sideline and not have to deal so much with big offensive linemen. By game’s end he had a team-high 11 tackles (10 solo), including one tackle for a 4-yard loss on Texans running back Arian Foster on a screen pass early in the third quarter".

Remember, Misi played in a 4-3 system in college. 11 tackles(10 solo) are pro bowl calibre numbers from the rolb position folks, even thouigh he didnt record a sack. From his rolb position he wont be asked to rush the passer very often.

Misi may be sufficient evidence Ireland really doesnt have much of a clue when it comes to drafting players to fit the teams current "SYSTEMS".

Fire Philbin, your comments are beyond silly about Sherman and Philbin. It's interesting how you parse the press conference to fit nicely with your already-made-up-mind, and don't acknowledge the other things said that don't.

On that endzone play, where Sherman said they weren't "giving" the endzone shot, I guess you missed the part where Sherman said Tannehill needed to move around, pump fake to create openings to throw into the endzone.

On the batted balls, Sherman said they needed to mix up the 3-step drops with longer ones, AND that Tannehill needed to work on looking defenders away with his eyes.

What your bias fails to recognize is Sherman UNDERSTANDS Tannehill is a rookie. He will go through a learning curve. That WILL take time. More than 1 game. It's ridiculous of you calling for the HC, WHO JUST GOT HIRED, to be fired after a game. It's completely IGNORANT of ANYONE claiming our best route to improving our team is to get our FIFTH new HC in 7 years. That's just plain old DUMB. You don't win Championships or stabilize your team by changing HC's and their systems every year.

I saw ONE GAME, and I'm already thankful we have this group over anyone we've had in the past since probably Shula. These guys GET offense. They just need to acquire the personnel to make their system work. If ANYONE is to blame for where we are it's Ireland. We're on his fifth year and only marginally better personnel-wise. That's the first piece you cut before you go after the brand new HC.

Reality posted,
"This team is utter garbage."

Please stop insulting garbage. Thank you.

Its hard to swallow listening to Sherman when he says, "We don't see balls batted down in practice". Maybe thats a technique we outta be teaching a bit more...can't get to the QB - git' yer hands up! Anyway...Tannehill did fine for a 1st game (especially considering the environment & the opponent). The 'stretch' of batted balls/picks is repairable & this kid works hard. He'll get that worked out. The guys whining about draft picks? C'mon man, hindsight's 20/20 - who in their right mind saw Gronkowski becoming the monster he was last year? And is he the same guy in say...Miami? Very doubtful. Tannehill will be OK - watch him for weeks before throwin' him to the curb.

I am no longer certain where you're getting your information, but great topic. I must spend a while finding out much more or figuring out more. Thank you for excellent info I used to be searching for this info for my mission.
