Ravens beat Dolphins 26-23, bye next

Well, it got exciting at the end. The Dolphins had a chance to tie it, but Caleb Sturgis missed a desperation 57-yard field goal attempt to tie with only a few clicks left on the clock.

Dolphins lose to the Ravens, 26-23, and go into the bye with a still respectable 3-2 record.

Tough loss.

The defense made it close. Reshad Jones had an interception return touchdown to tie the game at 23. But the defense also gave up a field goal drive. The winning field goal drive.

The offense?

Terrible.

Only scored one touchdown. Rushed for 22 yards on 11 carries. Ryan Tannehill was sacked six times, including three by Terrell Suggs.

HOW TO SAVE THE PHIS... TRADE MATT MOORE TO TAMPA FOR DONALD PENN. BECUASE IF TANNEHILL GOES DOWN. MATT MOORE WILL NOT DO MUCH WITH THAT LINE. SO DONALD PENN WILL BE AN UPGRADE AT LT AND MOVE MARTING TO RT AND FORGET ABOT CLABO. HE IS DONE. 2ND TRADE RANDY STARKS FOR... A. BEN TATE. B. FOR MCFADDEN. BECAUSE NEXT YEAR CAP WE WILL LOSE EITHER STARKS OR SOLIA. SO EITHER TATE OR MCFADDEN WILL BE AN UPGRADE TO MILLER AND THE REST RB THAT WE HAVE. SO HAVING A LINE: PENN - INGOCNITO - POUNCEY - JONES - MARTIN IS BETTER THAT MORE THAN 5 SACKS A GAME. AND AT RUNNING BACK ITS ANOTHER UPGRADE. PLEASE CHECK ON THIS TRADE AND GIVE US THE HOPE WE HAD IN WEEK 3. WERE ALMOST THERE

Guys plain and simple this loss was on one unit and one only. The OFFENSIVE line. It comes down to basics and if you cant protect your QB, you aint winning anything. I still say this team is in the right direction. On a positive. D. Jordan had his best game today and offers hope once Wake is healthy. Need patterson back as well.

3-2 is a lot better than I thought we'd be at the break.... I also really enjoyed 3-0. But if we don't find a better game plan and some oline studs I don't think we're gonna win one for a while..... The coaching is atrocious!!!!!

I've been saying it for sometime while your all talking about resigning the DT's and Grimes, I personally have been wondering about the OL (and posted it plenty) We have 3 out of 5 FA's in the group (Cogs,Jerry,Clabo) This team is officially the Bears of 2011,12 and we need to go into the next draft with the mindset of addressing it. I will tell the naysayers that the team is strictly a decent OL from serious contention.

The Fat Man and his Lady, you know The Fat Lady, have sung.

The OC sucks along with his little on the side love, Tanne the fanny. I have been saying it over and over and over again, RYAN TANNEHILL IS NOT, REPEAT, NOT, NOT, NOT the answer. He is a back up at best. Way too much hype given to this guy and did I mention, NOT THE FOCKING ANSWER. And for those of you who may think I am an idiot, or full of chit, GO FOCK YOURSELVES with your delusions that Tanne the Fanny is the franchise QB that has been and continues to be the elusive focking butterfly.

Here's another one. Wallace is the 60 million dollar DICK. He blows at least for the money he is getting paid. The Doughfins have no secondary and the linebackers are a bust. No better than what the Doughfins had last year. The entire offense, if they can even be called that, need to be fired, including the OC, and anyone else associated with the so called offense.

The Doughfins will probably, maybe, beat the Bills but they won't beat the Pats and they won't beat the Bengals. The FAT MAN has sung, biatches.....it is bye bye birdie, and if you don't like what I have to say, then to that I say....FOCK YOU BIATCHES!!!!!

Zaphod @ 4:46:

and this week has exposed them for the frauds they are. This is not a good team ... a very lucky team early in the season ... but NOT a good team! We may not win another meaningful game the rest of the season ...

You get called out for being a heartless fan for those words....Shame on you!

Ross should throw a party if they reach 5 wins, for the season eh?

Fair trade but don't see Tampa going for it. They are not a QB away from being good. Moore is not the answer for Miami and certainly is not for a less talented Tampa team.....Tampa wants draft picks so maybe we could get Penn for a 2nd day pick. As for the rest of your trade that may work because the Raiders make moves like that.

The homers are the ones who prolong the agony, eh?

FATMANSANG, I don't like what you have to say. But congratulations on recently obtaining your GED at age 35 from the state prison system!

Notice the only one Tannehill throws behind when he goes over the middle is Wallace. That tells me Wallace is the problem, he is running bad routes and has alligator arms.

I give Tannehill a lot of credit. This kid is tough. Are you kidding me 24 sacks and absolutely no running game? Any other young QB would be throwing a bunch of interceptions and panicking. I think that he is the real deal. Right now it is the offensive line, holding this team down.

The defense will get better after the bye when they get back Wake, Patterson, and the rest of the defense heals up. However, this offensive line is bad and it is time to bench Clabo. He is worse than Mark Colombo.

This team is Light-Years away from competing in anything, Look at Denver,Seattle,San Fran, Saints,Those are complete teams, What do you think a game against the Broncos would look like???
Sorry to bust anyones bubble..
Just saying..

Kris @ 5:07PM:

great post.....that is a fan thinking with his head rather than his heart.

Right on Zaphod... it has been a fraud and an illusion. By the way, it will get worse before all is said and done.

Lets keep it real this is growing pains. We are down CB's and our O-line does not seem to be able to man up.

I would like to see what Matt Moore could do, but guys we are hitched up to the Tanhill band wagon and when the receivers and him get on the same page things might work out. Tanhill had no down field threat last year. He now has the fastest man in NFL, takes time to get it together.

Anyone think this Tuesday practice thing is throwing the program off a little. Seems they are always comming out flat. Maybe this is because we do our heavy lifting on Tuesday and not at the endo of the week?? Just a thought.

All is not lost. We looked horrible and almost picked off the Super Bowl champs. Go Dolphins!! NOw is not the time to jump off the wagon.

This is the worst offensive line in the league and I don't think it's really close.

HOW TO SAVE THE PHIS... TRADE MATT MOORE TO TAMPA FOR DONALD PENN. BECUASE IF TANNEHILL GOES DOWN. MATT MOORE WILL NOT DO MUCH WITH THAT LINE.

I belive tampa will go for it because moore is a good option to help you start a new QB. think what was Chad Pennington. a good qb that has the experience. will not win you a SB but can give you time to develop and not rush a new QB.

Jlkella @ 5:13PM "We are done"!

You get called out for saying heartless things liker that...Shame on You!

Simply bad football team. Dont act like im not a fan now or other bs. Another wasted year. Reality sucks

JERRY TO LEFT TACKLE; GARNER TO RIGHT GUARD; JONATHON MARTIN TO RIGHT TACKLE; CLABO TO RESERVE OR CUT.

MIA73, to you I say, FOCK YOU, BIATCH. By the way, my prison GED is a hell of a lot better than anything you could possibly achieve. Keep drinking the Kool-Aide and don't choke on it, not that it would matter if you didn't exist.

Are people complaining about Tannehill? You've got to be kidding. Yes, he is still learning the game and holds the ball too long. But, for the most part, he would be fine with a running game and o-line. Look at Brady the past couple of weeks and he has a good line, run game and years of experience. The o-line is the GLARING issue here, not T-hill. The guy can't even set his feet or get into a drop without pressure in his face. Sherman abandons the run waaaaaay too soon. How would t-hill look if we were in 2nd and 6 or 2nd and 5 situations? Always 2nd and 8 or longer. Going into buy week, there will be guaranteed changes made. For sure. Right tackle, right guard. No doubt.

Its the QB stupid, eh?

Love thill but worst oline ever wont let him grow. Ireland u idiot

Wallace dropped the damn ball EVERY time there was a play to be made. I calculated it at about 250,000 dollars a drop.

Wtf trolls, it's not Tannehill it's the O-line. Watch any good QB play, They have a clean pocket to throw out of.

Throw this on Ireland. Instead of trading for Brandon Albert, he kept the pick and took Jamar Taylor. Jonathan Martin is not an NFL LT and Clabo was cut by the Falcons for a reason.

The one Lineman Ireland drafted hasn't even been active.

Ireland couldn't put a high caliber O-line together to save his life

Go on a diet fat man. Your gut has spilled over onto your keyboard.

Yup jon. Tried telling these fools all off. Season to get albert

Thill does well rolling out of the pocket. Maybe we should plan on that more often?

Qb holds the ball to long he is the reason for most of the sacks and incompletions

Cap u couldn't be more wrong

We still need a QB. Thanks Ireland.

This is not Tannehill's fault. He fought valiantly. His OTs were getting walked right into him. It is a miracle that he played as good as he did. He has the team at 3-2 and almost pulled this game out with the worst offensive line in pro football. Yes this OL is worse than the Jags line. Think about it he has no running game to keep the defense honest. The OTs are horrendous in pass protection. They need to make the switch to Nate Garner, it cannot get any worse than Clabo. No wonder the Falcons let him go. Teams usually do not let good OTs go, except the phins who let Long go.

Here's how Ireland has helped his second year qb. He got him more weapons in the passing game.

Here is why Jeff Ireland is a f%$&ing terrible gm who has not only found a different way to screw this team up but has handcuffed his qb.

Went into the season trusting two backs who were question marks in the run game and were already known as bad pass blockers.

And put together a patchwork offensive line who cant run OR pass block. So bad that the oline is routinely pushed back into the qb one second after he plants during passing plays. No run game and a terrible o-line, yep, that's a great way to handcuff your offense.

seriously guys, Kris's post so much better because it concise and constructive, and most of all, accurate....not like this crap I'm reading..."we suck"..."Were done"..."wont win anymore games this year"...and all that other crybaby crap that stinks up this blog.

Mia73, go play with yourself since it is obvious you have no one that would play with you. Pretty bad when not even a fat, sweaty, smelly, guy with a gut spilling all over his sticky keyboards would play with you. Oh, by the way, FOCK YOU, BIATCH!!!!

We've been told over and over again on herby many that OL isn't that imporatnt.you can grt by with anyone at LT. All we really need to win is playmakers. I'm guessing some of those guys,ight be reconsidering that about now.another 6 sacks today and if this keeps up it's going to get our QB killed. martingave up at least another sack today.i've seen enough.draft a LT highnext round and move Martin back to RT. he's not good enough.

Having said all that, I'n not disappointed that this teamis 3-2right now.

thill was solid. any qb gonna struggle when u have no oline and zero running game great 4th down play to gibson. only mistake was spike on first down on last drive

Tannehill = John Beck

3 watt ur dumb as a retarded rock

eh

Play Matt Moore already. Tannehill makes everyone look bad.

tony nathan dumb as they come

We have a very young team dudes tannehill is playing as well as he can our oline is pitiful and our receivers drop as many as they catch we are 3-2 heading into the bye I thought we would be1-4 at this point remember we are still a baby team but we are a baby team that bites enjoy the rest of the season losers I know I will GO DOLPHINS

I would not blame the RBs either. There are absolutely no holes to run in. Bush would not have done any better with this OL. We would be complaining about Bush trying to dance around. The bottom line is that this OL stinks. They are going to break the dolphins record of 53 sacks in one season; they are already at 24 after 5 games.

Tannehill should be commended for holding up under this assault. He has been able to throw the ball under duress and with no running game. Tannehill is the real deal. I can't wait until we can put a good team around him and to see him gain more experience.

Tony Nathan

Yeah, because instead of getting sacked 6 times he would only get sacked 5 times. SMH

And Wallace, this guy makes more mistakes than a second year rookie. He has absolutely NO feeling for what is going on in the defensive backfield. He constantly runs TOWARD coverage in the middle of the field and runs his fly routes inches from the sideline. Freaking joke, Gibson is MUCH more polished. People were right so far, one trick pony. Great, hes fast.

Cant catch in traffic, can't go up for passes, lousy anticipation, questionable route running, and not very intelligent.

Other teams would die for ryan tannehilll

Sorry Dusty but that is his problem clasping the ball 2-3 times with his left hand before he throws it under center or in the gun

Outside of Pouncey, the entire O-line needs to be replaced.

Do you have any idea how incompetent you have to be as a GM to have a situation like this after being on the job for 4 years?

Outside of 1st round selections, Ireland is dreadful in the draft.

Moore makes quicker decisions. He would be much more effective.

I'm so pissed is an understatement!!!!

I don't want to here we are still 3-2. We lost to an inferior team at home!!!!

O-LINE IS HORRIBLE!!!

TANNEHILL HAS A HUGE WAYS TO GO!!! HE WILL NEVER BE LUCK AND DEFINITELY NOT RUSSELL WILSON!!

NO POCKET AWARENESS AT ALL.

SHERMAN SHOULD BE FIRED!!!!!

I HAVE A HOLE IN MY WALL BECAUSE OF THIS DISASTER!!

The experts picked us to go 6-10 remember that ! This is not a finished product yet


Other teams would die for ryan tannehilll

Posted by: Jackoff1 | October 06, 2013 at 05:49 PM

He wouldnt even start for his college team today. He's terrible. Ranked 29th.

While the OL play is horrible.. Tannehill does nothing to buy time in the pocket great QB move around and has a feel for the pocket.

TANNY under through Wallace every time. Cross routes behind him!!!

ARE YOU SERIOUS!!!

Craig,

I have been preaching what you are saying for a while. Do you remember this blog last year when everyone was saying let Long go, get Wallace, take 2 receivers and a TE in with the first 3 picks, and Oh who cares about the line. Take someone in the 5th round to play RT. Well now we see the result. No offense can function like this. Clabo should be benched. It is time to bring in Nate Garner. I would shake this thing up. Jerry at LT, Garner RT, and Watkins at RG.

Bane this kid has been sacked 24 times already what would your pocket awareness be .oh shoot I better duck

Tannehill is more like a 6th rd project than a 1st rd draft choice.

jpac nailed it
horrible plqy calling last minute
