« Some Dolphins Olinemen getting fired anyway | Main | Keys to the game: Raven »

Dolphins must do something at RT

The Pittsburgh Steelers, Baltimore Ravens and New York Giants have made trades in the past week to try to salvage their season. Perhaps they were desperate moves. Perhaps, but they were moves by general managers who have each won multiple Super Bowls and believe in doing everything they can to help their teams improve now.

Perhaps the Dolphins need to get themselves in that kind of company and mindset.

The Dolphins, 3-1 and thick in the hunt for a playoff spot, have a serious problem on their hands in that they cannot protect their quarterback. They can't keep Ryan Tannehill upright as the 18 sacks they've allowed not only suggests but screams at full throat.

So rather than just sitting around and hoping and praying and acting like hard work is going to suddenly turn Tyson Clabo into a 26-year-old version of himself rather than the 32-year-old version we've seen give up four sacks in four games, perhaps the Dolphins should start shopping for an offensive tackle.

Or perhaps the Dolphins should consider moving people around to address that right tackle issue internally.

Either way, perhaps the Dolphins would be better off doing something instead of nothing.

So what can they explore?

Well, I do not blame the Dolphins for not being in on Levi Brown, who was traded from Arizona to Pittsburgh. He's frankly not much of an upgrade on any level. I don't blame them for missing out on Eugene Monroe, who was traded from Jacksonville to Baltimore.

Don't get me wrong, it would have made sense to get Monroe and start him on Sunday at left tackle while moving Jonathan Martin to right tackle. That would have been a good move, considering Monroe instead will be lining up against the Dolphins on Sunday because the Ravens gave up an undisclosed third-day-of-the-draft pick (somewhere between the fourth and seventh round) to get him this week.

A league source has confirmed for me that Jacksonville didn't really make the usual round of phone calls to the entire league to make Monroe available. So the Dolphins apparently didn't know Monroe was available.

But as the trade deadline approaches at the end of this month, perhaps it is time to be more proactive. Perhaps rather than wait on teams to call and say they have players available, maybe the Dolphins should start calling to see if players are available.

There's nothing wrong with being an active shopper.

The Ravens proved this when they called about Monroe and got a good player who wasn't really on the market.

So maybe a call to Tampa Bay to see if Donald Penn is available might be warranted for Miami. This, by the way, was suggested to me by a twitter follower. And looking at it, Penn is playing great and although he's very expensive, he's earning that pay. He'd be a huge upgrade for Miami.

Why would the Bucs trade him?

Well, they probably wouldn't but they did reportedly call the Dolphins to see if Miami would be interested in quarterback Josh Freeman. (The Dolphins obviously said no). So the Bucs are sort of rebuilding. Penn is 30 years old and maybe Tampa Bay can be convinced that a draft pick next year (maybe a third or even a second?) is good business because Penn is 30, expensive, and they aren't winning any titles anytime soon with a rookie QB, anyway.

It's a shot in the dark. And it beats taking no shot at all.

Maybe the Dolphins this weekend arrange a little discussion between Jeff Ireland and Ozzie Newsome. The Dolphins and Ravens GMs can talk about Bryant McKinnie. Maybe after Sunday's game is over, the Dolphins can send a seventh-round pick or perhaps a bag of bolts and door handles to the Ravens for McKinnie.

McKinnie, by the way, isn't the player he once was. He was once dominant. But he's partied too hard and gotten too soft to be very good anymore. His feet are slower. His belly is bigger. He's no longer a star, which is the reason the Ravens are replacing him with Monroe.

But you know what? The combination of LT McKinnie and RT Jonathan Martin is better than the combination of LT Martin and RT Clabo. And maybe McKinnie can lose weight in the Miami heat (Yeah, it is still hot down here). And, again, the Dolphins aren't exactly paying a premium for McKinnie, a player they liked in the spring.

McKinnie, by the way, is available according to a league source. And the idea of a deal is not unfamiliar to him as he raised it himself in an interview with the Baltimore Sun.

"We'll see," McKinnie said Thursday in his usual Australian accent (kidding), "maybe a trade, who knows?"

Obviously, those are not the only two tackles the Dolphins should explore. Explore everyone. Don't. Just. Sit. There.

Don't buy the fiction Joe Phiblin authors when he talks about guys working hard and getting better when the proof on the field truthfully counters that they are not getting any better. Some guys have maximized. Some guys have worked and they are who they are.

Change is needed.

Look in all crooks and nannies for that change. (See what I did there?)

One of the places, by the way, where the Dolphins should look is internally. That's right, on their very own roster.

No, I'm not advocating playing Dallas Thomas. The Dolphins are not that desperate.

I am advocating looking to see if perhaps Nate Garner can compete at right tackle. I am further advocating looking to see if perhaps moving John Jerry from right guard to right tackle might be suitable?

If you recall, Jerry finsished the 2011 season as Miami's left tackle. And he did a credible job when Jake Long went to his annual December appointment with the injured reserve list. The next year, the Dolphins moved him to guard and he's been starting but not starring there ever since.

Jerry is no great shakes at guard. And he'll probably be a mediocre-at-best tackle. But mediocre is still an upgrade from Clabo's four sacks in four games. Four sacks in four games stares longingly at mediocre. 

(Peanut Gallery: But Mando, if you move Jerry from guard to tackle you just create a problem at guard. What are you going to do with that problem?)

Garner is on the roster. Danny Watkins is on the roster. Or look to the trade market for a guard.

Do something.

I caught up with Watkins this week. The theme I came away with after the interview was he wants to compete for a starting job but he's still learning the playbook and Miami's techniques that have been so successful while giving up 18 sacks.

"Definitely feel good about it but there are still a few chinks in the armor so to speak," he said of where he's at. "But I feel good about it. It's definitely a different element coming in at the beginning of the season as opposed to being here for OTAs or training camp so that changes things. I'll go upstairs see the coaches and spend extra time with them watching the film and reviewing what I got to do. We'll draw stuff up if I'm unclear because some of it is new concepts. But they're really good about it."

So how are practices going?

"It's going well," he said. "The biggest thing is learning the technique and the offense. It's a lot better than what it was two weeks ago. It's when you flat line that you start getting in trouble. I'm just continually getting better."

As Dolphins practices are closed, I have no idea if Watkins is improving or not. I do not know if he's any good or not. But I'm hoping the coaching staff isn't simply accepting the status quo for the sake of keeping the offensive line intact.

Garner is also a possibility. Maybe he can be a better right tackle than Clabo. Maybe he can move in as the right guard and let Jerry go at right tackle. The point is not considering it, not trying it is a big mistake.

Obviously this week's game is not the time to try this. But the Dolphins have have a bye next week. That is the time to make changes. That is the time to bring in a player in trade or move Jerry and insert someone else.

Would that upset the continuity of things? Would that seem a bit desperate?

Giving up 18 sacks in four games and perhaps more on the way against Terrell Suggs and Elvis Dumervil should put the Dolphins on the brink of desperation.

And continuity on a line that gives up 18 sacks in four games is not a good thing. It's a bad thing. It only suggests more of the same is coming in the future.

and Im all for being patient with rookies and not expecting much from them in general, minimal contribution in year 1 for most anyway....but wow, Dallas Thomas must be awful--guy cant sniff the field when we desperately need Oline help....and he was a 3rd or 4th rd pick?--hardly off the scrap heap--yikes!

and Im going by the reaction that Ive seen in numerous places about Dallas Thomas, from the writers....they not only say he's not very good at this point, or bother not mentioning him at all....but when they bring his name up as a possiblity, they actually make a joke/quip about it.....as Mando did....like "nothing could be so bad that we'd bring Dallas Thomas in"--"no, we're not that desperate"--instead of just ignoring him, or saying he's not ready, they feel compelled to make a soft joke about him--doesnt bode well for him

Yeah, that's a ure for turnovers, turning to Matt Moore. Do you believe any of your insane rants???

#11 is not happy because he isn't doing HIS job. hartline is, gibson is, clay is, miller is, not #11

Number of teams with a winning record Moore has beat in his career ZERO

Number of teams Tannehill has beat with a winning record last MONTH 3!!!

Wowsers, where do some of these comments come from?

Agreed Mark...#11 looked like ARSE on Monday night...all that talk about taking his buddy to school...and 2 nice passes go right through his mits!!! All Hartline does is catch everything that comes his way...Once Gibson gets the first target drop out of the way he basically does the same thing...I wrote off Clay after those last 2 pre-season games...but this man has come to play in the regular season!!!

I agree with everything jack but yet because #11 is having a substandard year (which ironically is on pace to equal the same #s he had last year with a a 2X super bowl champion QB), it's Tannehill that is to blame and we should bring in Matt Moore?

FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS GOOD AND HOLY!!!

Yes Tannehill is prone to some errors but the plan wasn't to make the offense as reliant on him as it is. We were expected to get ~ 1800 yards rushing (which is what we got last year) - doesn't look like we will. he's carried the offense through the toughest part of the schedule and was excellent for three games and poor for one.

If we go 2-2 over the next four ... no way we will miss the playoffs with the schedule looking like it is for the 2nd half of the year.

But yet, Tannehill is below average ... jiminy crickets these comments are dumb...

Ryan Tannehill = David Carr

CadillacDeVille is the smartest person in the forum. The problem is not the oline it's the quarterback

You said it Mark @1:42. Its just too exhausting

Mando,
that's why the draft was such a shocker to me, to give up a pick and move up to #3 overall, i was certain our guys did their homework and were going for a left tackle...so how has that surprise move in the draft(dion jordan) worked out so far? again, i have faith in our coaches, i have to believe that after a whole offseason their choices had to be the best, this time i'm sticking with our desicion makers, i have faith in our staff. my biggest concern(if i were philbin) would be the psyche or the durability of said psyche of this team. we played very well for 3 and a half games, heck, were only 1 game away from being 4-0...yep, the ability or lack there of to weather a small storm of negative plays, is my concern, the first half was fine, but the LAST straw that broke this teams fight had to be that final drive, heading into half time, knowing we were to reciever after the half, driving, ready to put points on the board bfore and after the half, when all of a sudden something that has been overlooked came to pass, tannehill(holding the ball like a loaf of bread) funbled away this teams hopes to win the game...just as wallace forgot to catch a deep pass with his hands, so did somebody forget stress the importance of securing the ball to tannehill. yes i whole heartedly believe that fumble was the catylyst for us to witness a mirror image of dolphins teams of the past that would simply just give up.

Dion Jordan > Lane Johnson easily THIS YEAR

EJ Manuel will be out for a few weeks .... looks like we won't get to see him against Miami

Screen passes and draws can help slow down a defense bent on destroying a QB. More running plays and quick passes or roll-outs can also help keep RT healthy.

The problem is that Sherman has never heard of a screen pass, wouldn't know one if it bit him on the posterior.

Mark, the Bad News Bills might also be without Stevie Johnson (wit a poor whittle back sprain). We might be 5-1 facing the Patriots.

Lots of excuses for Tannehill haha

3-1 is not a time to panic. 3-2 will be a time to start panicking.

What excuses? Look at the board, 3-1 through the toughest part of our schedule. It's th trolls with the excuses.

DC, yeah, I want two of the next four. To finish the first half of our schedule with five wins and we will be in very good shape.

The records of the teams we face in the 2nd half is 13-18, compared to 21-12 from the first half....

I don't know if I had a chance to say this yet today.


F-U Junior Gillette you lick dirty buttholes for fun. You are overrated, matter of fact, you arent overrated, because no one cares about you enough to rate you in the first place!


I guess I should get over this and go back to making Lobstertube jokes!


What excuses?

Posted by: Mark in Toronto | October 04, 2013 at 02:19 PM


DUUUUHHH! CAN YOU READ? OL, TE, RB, WR'S

Nothing wrong with the TE, RB, or WR play overall. #11 is a problem. We need another lineman, maybe two. Minor problems ... as long as the Qb keeps improving like he has been then everything else is EXTREMELY Minor and only folly to witless trolls like yourself.

before Week 1, most of us, me included, wouldve been thrilled if you wouldve said we'd be 3-2 at worst after our first 5 games.....would've been shocked if you said 4-1, wouldnt have believed you.....and thought that 2-3 would be reasonable, and manageable to still have us in a position to compete for a WC by season's end--most were saying "just get us through the first 5 games at 2-3 and we can work with that"--so whats the problem?

Mando,
every year, near the end of the season, there is always an inferior team or two that somehow squeaked it's way into the playoffs, winning some games they should have lost during the regular season by bad calls, turnovers, or catching a quality opponant during a bad but rare showing. this would be the case of some miami teams of the PAST, and the season always ends the same way, a blow out or an embarassing play off loss. today, i believe miami is on the other side of the fence, i believe we were that good team on a bad day...in addition, how many times have we seen a team like the pats, down a couple of scores, come from behind only to win the game with a couple of brady bombs???? this NEW miami team and coaches have to remember one thing, that being down a couple of scores is NOT the impossible scenario it once was, someone really needs to remind our players that WE are now the team with the come from behind, big play, quick strike ability, someone needs to remind the coaches who are calling the plays as well. if we find ourselves behind like that again(and i don't think we will) the more attempts to wallace the better!

before week 1, how many thought we'd beat 2 of Indy, Atlanta, NO and Balt (possibly 3 after this weekend)....with 2 of those on the road--and our road win over 3-2 Cleveland is looking like a higher quality win than most thought at the time, or even recently--what excuses would we need, Sense?

THE O-LINE COACH NEEDS TO GET FIRED......HE HAS A LOVE AFFAIR WITH JOHN JERRY...JUST LIKE HE HAD WITH SAMUDA..HE'S GOTTA OPEN HIS EYES AND SEE JUST CAUSE JERRY LOOKS LIKE HE CAN PLAY DOESN'T MEAN HE CAN..HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN GONE WITH SPORANO...WHY NOT PLAY WATKINS..HE SEEMS LIKE A SMART STAND UP DUDE..ALSO HE WASN'T DRAFTED IN THE SECOND ROUND FOR NO REASON..HE HAS ABILITY..OR WHY NOT NATE GARDNER..NATE IS SO SO AS A TACKLE BUT A GUARD HE'S GOOD..THE FINS CAN'T START THE GAME FLAT OR IT CAN GET UGLY..THEY WILL GIVE THE RAVENS CONFIDENCE..AND THE RAVENS ARE NOT COMING IN ON A HIGH SO YOU GOT TO STICK IT TO THEM FROM THE START..CHALLENGE THE FANS GUYS .IF YOU SEE A FIN FAN SEATING AND NOT CHEERING TELL THEM TO GET THERE !@@# UP AND CHEER..LETS ACT CRAZY LIKE THE SAINTS FANS ACT..IT WILL MAKE A HUGE DIFFRENCE TRUST ME..BUT THE O-LINE COACH STILL NEEDS TO GO

#11 is not a problem....the fact that we cant figure out how to get him the ball is a problem

WHY NOT SET UP DELAY TAKE OFFS WITH WALLACE ..MAKE HIM CATCH IT ON THE RUN..DOESN'T HAVE TO BE BOMBS..SLANTS ON FULL SPEED.CROSSING STOP AND GO'S.NO SHERMAN IS F@$#4ING IT UP...SHERMAN IS WORSER THAN DAN HENNING AT LEAST HENNING HAD HENNE..

I still think Jon Martin is a better fit at OG where he can play in a phone booth and get help.. He can pull as well..The safety position needs to be addressed also..Seems like Chris Clemons is just running around clueless back there... He makes no big plays.. It's like he just plays not to mess up... Had high hopes for him after his first year but he's gotten worse.. We need to see what Don Jones has...

ISN'T KENNY PHILIPS...A FREE AGENT..JONES IS PLAYING LIKE CRAP AND CLEMONS HAS ALWAYS BEEN CRAP..I MISS THE DAYS OF BROCK MARION BRIAN WALKER ..EVEN LOUIS OLIVER WHO WAS STIFF IN COVERAGE BUT HAD A KNACK FOR GETTING THE BALL..

Here is what I think we should do:

Change the base offense. On 1st down: Start Dion Sims AND make Will Yeatman an Eligible receiver, lining him up as a TE in a 2 TE set. He is after all a TE turned RT.

Keep Lamar Miller as the single RB and now we have the bodies to run the ball or go max protection to deliver the ball deep to Wallace on play action.

In 2nd and long, Sims comes off the field and Clay comes in at FB. We still have the beef to run but now we have an extra big play guy out of the backfield.

3rd and 5 or greater: Gibson comes in and and Clay replaces Miller/Thomas as the single back. We now have legit receivers and extra size to deal with the rush.


Bottom line, Will Yeatman should be added to the lineup for his size and versatility to open up the run and allow deep routes to develop for Wallace.

DION JORDAN ..NEEDS TO PLAY WITH VIOLENCE..SAW SOME PLAYS WERE HE COULD HAVE EASILY GOTTEN THE QB BUT WAS SCARED OF HURTING HIM....DION YOU'RE JUDGED BY SACKS..I HAVE A FEELING THE SACK HE GOT AT THE BROWNS THAT THEY SAY WAS A SACK IS GONNA BE THE LAST ONE HE GETS FOR A WHILE..3 SACKS AT THE END OF THE YEAR DOESN'T CUT IT FOR THE 3RD PICK OF THE DRAFT..THAT'S A BUST FIRST YEAR.

benz, there is no problem. Just have some people here who get their thrills from being ignorant and provoking.

Looks like Gibson is out. Wow this sucks. Thats OK some time I can go for a good nutt or is that a McNutt?

Mark, you nailed it @ 1:42. I would add that they could get 1800 TD's rushing, but they actually have to call running plays! Sherman, RUN THE DAMN BALL!!! But not with Daniel Thomas.

OK, looks like questionable. Stupid Adam B. Dont get me all worried like that!

Mando, respectfully, SAVE YOUR BREATH. Ireland's ego (a remnant of his time with Parcells) will not allow him to admit he's screwed the pooch as regards our (cough cough) O-Line. Look how long he guys around like Egnew, who would be long gone from other teams. No way will he go with hat in hand. If he does, knock me over with a feather.

Sorry, meant how long he allows guys like Egnew to hang around.

as funny and as stupid as this may sound, do you think something as simple as "tying a string around the finger" of mike wallace might help? tannehill hit wallace right on the numbers, and philbin isn't going to shadow wallace on a deep route yelling "look the ball in! catch it with your hands!", but a string just might do the trick...the same goes for tannehill, we all know that philbin can't take snaps at center to be in close proximity to remind tannehill to sceure the ball..but a string?!!..sounds ridiculous, wallace had a brainfart, totaly forgot his technique, that happens, but when he's looking the ball in and wonders why their is a string dangling from his finger, it all might just click! ... the alternative of philbin streaking down the field with wallace might be more amusing, but this scenario is impractical as wallace does not possess the required speed..lol

Since the blog was "cleaned up," Craig M seems to have vanished. Is he on vacation or something?

Why would Jeff Ireland bring in another RT? Didn't he go an entire season with Mark Columbo?

Thing I dislike about Ireland at times, is he can be so smug and conceited in his decisions, he gives himself no "wiggle room". Seems his "false pride" stands so tall in his way, he even refuses to admit to himself when he's wrong.

I would bet a fatted golden calf, Ireland wouldn't admit even to himself, he handled the Brandon Albert situation "all wrong". How much better would the oline look right now were Albert playing LT and Martin RT?

Then perhaps drafting a guard 1st rd, instead of Dion Jordan, whom arrived injured and the coaching staff hasn't 100% figured how to most effectively utilize him. It's game 5, our #3 overall pick has yet to become a full time starter. Clearly he's talented. Also, clearly, the coaching staff hasn't figure how to get the absolute best of him.

Tannehill had 3 good games but you want to take the one downer where it was not solely on him (poor o line play and bid drops by Wallace) and make that his career. Sheer stupidity!

I don't blame Mike Wallace and neither should the rest of you. Here's Why:

1. Tannehill has deep ball strength, but doesn't have great deep ball accuracy.

2. Great issues with oline protection in 2012. Bringing in Wallace, and not 100% correcting oline protection. Really, Ireland?

3. This offensive staff doesn't scheme correctly to get the most from Wallace's great speed. Use your most dangerous weapon to get your less dangerous weapons more opportunities. Really?

That's only 3 critical issues, but given time, I'm sure I could come up with many more.

F-U Junior Gillette you lick dirty buttholes for fun. You are overrated, matter of fact, you arent overrated, because no one cares about you enough to rate you in the first place!

==============================================

Don't sweat Junior Gaylete.

It seems only an inexperienced idiot would make those kinds of statements, Huh?

What do you know.......?

Since entering the league in 2010, Gaylete has averaged 10 tackles a year and 1 sack.

Nope! Those aren't typo's-LOL! He's that much of a **NOBODY** -LOL.

Eddie, obviously Tannehill has made some strides. Where he hasn't improved one iota, mistakes. When it rains, boy does it pours.

Same way last year. 2-3-4 in a row 1 to 0 turnovers. Then comes hat game, the bottom falls from the sky. He can not continue the trend where every 3-4 games he becomes the golden goose of turnovers.

Don't know hat he does to correct this, just he urgently needs to end this trend and in 120mph fast ball hurry. Every 3rd o 4th game he becomes turnover city. When it rains, it pours.

Sounds like Saints bring in Junior Gilette inbetween bayou hunting trips with those paltry numbers.

Sup Odin, I dont normally care when athletes talk crap. But for some reason his comments made me o mad, maybe I am just a sore loser or dont like PEOPLE TALKING BOUT MY TEAM! It is so disrespectful to talk crap after whipping a team. Its like when you see a fight and a gu gets knocked out and is laying on the ground and the attackers friends start stomping on them as they lay unconscious. Classless and a low blow. I hope someone takes their helmet off and swings it at him someday!

I love rdubs pro wrestling references. Dam those 4 Horsemen!!!

Ireland knew coming in Wallace has history of drops. Yet, signed him for $60 million anyway. So, every critical drop Wallace makes, don't blame him. blame Ireland.

Wallace made these type drops long before he became a Dolphin. Bright side? Wallace will also make some big plays, when schemed correctly.

#11 is not a problem....the fact that we cant figure out how to get him the ball is a problem

Posted by: benz | October 04, 2013 at 02:32 PM
==============================================

Wallace isn't the problem, I agree. I disagree on not knowing how to get him the ball.

It all comes back to pass blocking and the offensive line. There always seems to be a breakdown somewhere. Every play it's one guy or another. You can almost take your pick.

If you recorded any of the games, time Tannehill from the snap. He's **LUCKY** if he gets 3 seconds. I've timed a lot of them myself and he's usually being flushed at about 2.5 seconds.

I still think the bigger problem is consistency. 4 guys hold up and Martin whiffs. Next play four hold up and Jerry whiffs, etc, etc......

This game should tell the story. The O-Line knows their all under the microscope! It's put up or shut up time. If they're going to achieve continuity and consistency it's going to have to be THIS WEEK!

Otherwise, it's time for the old SpOrano Shuffle!

hmmmmm Lobstertube or Gym after work....no time for both.Thats a tough call. Although after sitting here looking at my gut, I should probably opt for gym.If lifting weights makes your muscle bigger, why doesnt Lobstertube make your...

I think what Benz means, is not the oline protection, yes it's part of it. But, the Dolphins need to move Wallace around a lot more. I read he plays one side of the line 90% of the time.

Moving Wallace around would create mismatches or causing the defense to scramble, possibly creating a blown assignment or mistake.

Having him run 9 routes when the protection is shotty, grossly negates his effectiveness.

Don't worry about EJ Manuel, worry about Brady.

Its like when you see a fight and a gu gets knocked out and is laying on the ground and the attackers friends start stomping on them as they lay unconscious. Classless and a low blow. I hope someone takes their helmet off and swings it at him someday!

===============================================

Exactly and that when I've jumped in many of times. There were times it didn't workout so well(got stomped myself-LOL)and I still don't regret it.

Gaylete pissed me off with his classless act. That's why I looked up his piss poor production. I even saw an interview at the start of the season. The hypocrite said that having the chance to play in the NFL made him feel humble and made him want to keep his mouth shut and listen and learn.

O-Key Dokey Dik Head!!!!

Odin,


I remember watching Ultimate Fighter and Tito Ortiz was talking about being humble. Then he started throwing 20 dollars bills in the cage for his fighters to grab, as he was doing this he said "That is MY money I am giving you guys!"
To my ears, that doesn't sound very humble!

ROTFLMAO - It's a Cruel World!

Of course if it did work that way, I'd have to hoist it over my shoulder just to make my way to the John.

Joe Thomas. We will never know if it's possible or not if we don't even ask.

Did anybody notice how bad Payton schemed us? I'm assuming it was because of Payton.

I haven't seen any comments on how our defense was almost in total disarray pre snap.

Guys were jumping around, looking over their shoulders and waiving back and forth pre snap. It was embarrassing to me.

I'm not sure WTF was going on, I just hope I don't see again. We have to be ready for Baltimore.

The issue with Dallas Thomas is he was projected as a guard by all the 'experts' yet this team is trying to turn him into a tackle. Scouting report on him was clear - he is not athletic enough to be a tackle, he is a guard. Yet, there he is playing, and failing, as a tackle.

you are right Armando they have to do something, what they have been doing isn't working, trade cut somebody, replace somebody put someone in who is Hungry.

Lets blame everyone BUT Tannehill.
