My wife who is a casual fan at best saw the supposed Bills TD and immediately says, "he lost control of the ball before he crossed the plane". Funny how a non interested third party could see something the NFL officials couldn't. To make it worse, where was the review? If nothing else, it deserved that much.

None of the pundits predicted this win.... However, we saw it coming. Brady's not dead but he's on the down side. Now, do we take advantage?

Thill hit Sims on the hands for TD and with a little adjustment, Wallace has another TD... Yes, ugly interception but could have been a 4 TD game. THILL, I believe!!!

Props to the defense, especially the front 4. Brady is such a different QB with pressure. Outstanding game! Going forward, we can't outthink ourselves. Backed up at your own 11 and then 2nd and 3 after a 7 yard from Moreno and you pass??? What the F$%K? Just run the ball!!!!

Posted by: Still/Wade/County | August 25, 2014 at 06:09 PM I don't dispute that scenario may very well play out but call me a homer if you want, I see more depth and talent on this team then we've had in a long time and I'm rooting for Philbin and company to take it to the next level. I'm not a big Philbin fan, just a big Dolphin fan. And by the way, I was a bit of an Ireland apologist but overall, I like what Hickey has done so far.

Bond, everybody loves to watch the long ball completions, the explosive plays but right now, in RT's development, he throws the short and intermediate routes pretty well. He's got all the physical tools, including toughness, which by the way is highly underrated. Yes, he was responsible for some of the 58 sacks last year but the offensive line was a sieve and yet he got up time and time again and never appeared to waiver. Hopefully he will develop a more complete game, including the deep ball, but I for one will be happy to see him engineer long drives with dink and dunk passing and occasionally with his legs, which by the way, I'm sure Lazor is keeping under wraps until the season officially begins.

I'm so tired of hearing about Tannehill's long ball to Mike Wallace. Do you RT haters watch any f@#king football? Watch the first 15 minutes of the Cardinal's - Bengals game from Saturday. Carson Palmer missed 3 deep balls in a row, 2 to wide open receivers within a span of 2 minutes. A series or two later, Andy Dalton missed a deep ball for a wide open receiver in the end zone. Granted, these aren't the best quarterbacks in the league but you morons act like RT should hit these 100% of the time. You can piss and moan all you want about RT and Wallace but nothing is going to change the fact that barring injury, Tannehill will be the starter this season... Now shut up and go play with your barbie dolls in the basement.

I'm a Dolfan stuck in Cowboy country and heard a breakdown of the Cowboy's draft yesterday from a respected local sports writer, Rick Gosselin. He compared the way the Cowboys draft to the way the Raven's draft and I saw a lot of similarities with the Dolphins. Jerry often reaches in the draft to fill a need, (occasionally stepping outside that logic when's completely enamored with a player) and consequently, the team is stuck in mediocrity due to the mediocre talent. Ozzie and the Ravens on the other hand typically try to stick to the board and pick the BPA, even when it doesn't fill a need. I hate the Ravens but you can easily see that the Ravens are perennially in the playoffs and field a high caliber team. Seems like the Dolphins have been doing the same thing for a long time and are therefore stuck in mediocrity and will stay that way until they figure out how to move past drafting for need rather than BPA.

noreastdollfan, I have to agree. The way both those quarterbacks stand in the pocket going through progressions, sliding to to find the lanes and throwing pinpoint accurate passes to tight windows are amazing. I mean really, looking at their stats from the last 2 playoff games, they carried their teams.

J T Sander, Sorry, but you're wrong. Kaep & Wilson are further behind in their development vs Tannehill. Yes they are exciting to watch but neither are carrying their teams. Just as the Redskins sacrificed their quarterback for the chance at 1 post season appearance, the Seahawks and Forty-niners are kind of doing the same thing. I predict that one or the other of these 2 qb's will end up with a broken leg, dislocated shoulder or torn ACL in the near future. Both teams have depth at every position and physical, mauling defenses, the Seahawks however are up against the cap next year. Let's see how good these qb's look in a couple of years when their teams start losing superstars and they're expected to actually play their positions from the pocket .

This is from a Denver Bronco Blog from May, 2012 regarding Xander's credentials: ** Draft 2010: The Broncos made a splash in the first round of the draft by making two trades down and two trades up and ultimately winding up with wide receiver Demaryius Thomas at No. 22 and quarterback Tim Tebow at No. 25. The Broncos also drafted starters Zane Beadles, J.D. Walton and Eric Decker in the second day of the draft" Sign the guy immediately. This one draft is better than most of JI's combined drafts. If you watch the game, these players are the real deal, play with heart and make plays. Even Tim Tebow, a Josh McDaniels move.

jpao at 10:48 Dead on!! How do you beat the AFC's 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 6th seed playoff contenders and lose to the Bills twice, Jets at home with playoff implications, winless TB, etc.. This may not be the most talented bunch of Dolphin players ever but there's enough talent to beat good teams when they're motivated and coached properly. Before the Buffalo game, I thought we should keep this regime in place. Losing the way we did gave me some doubts but the way we played today completely iced it. We should dump the GM, coaches, scouts and everyone other than Aponte. Hire a GM who can pick his own coach but I would love to see what Mike Zimmer could do with our defense.

Blind Faith, Kudos! I've personally never seen anything that heavy. You're undoubtedly a very caring soul or your girlfriend was very hot. In any case, it sounds like you did some remarkable work. Cheers!
