First off, it's kinda strange we're playing a team we'll see in the regular season. The Bucs will have done this twice, as they've already played the Pats. I guess you can argue that both teams should benefit equally.

Keys for me are the O-line and Tanehill..........can they sustain drives early. Neither has been effective. The rest is who will make the cut, I'm thinking Matthews has the inside track for the 4th WR. Listening to O Kelly he says Javorskie Lane is on the bubble.......primarily due to his lack of versatility........I'm hoping this is just Omar trying to think of something clever to say. Maybe I've been watching too may glory year Dolphins Videos, but I like having a Czonka like guy in the backfield.

Is Clay still the starting TE?

The Dolphins are playing 2 preseason opponents again in the regular season this year. They play the Bucs tomorrow and again on Nov. 11th. And the Saints on Aug. 29th and again on Sept. 30th. Both regular season games will be Monday night games.

This should be the only preseason game where the coaching staff prepares it like a real game. We should see our starters throughout the first half. I'd like to see the Dolphins give it to Lamar Miller more. I don't think he's touched it 10 times total yet.

I see a lot to be happy about, but I'm not liking these drops.

Ryan Tannehill completed 17-of-27 passes for 150 yards and a touchdown in the Dolphins' fourth preseason game Saturday night.
He should've had a second touchdown, but Brandon Gibson dropped it. After a slow start to August, Tannehill has turned in back-to-back sharp preseason games. Through four exhibitions, he's completed 34-of-56 throws (60.7 percent) for 377 yards (6.73 YPA), three touchdowns, and no interceptions. His lone turnover came on a botched handoff in the Hall of Fame Game, for which Lamar Miller deserved most of the blame.

time to bring in DJ Williams or Tony Moeaki for a look. Clay does this to us every year.

Hard to defend him after that.

Would Egnew or Sims have done any better?

Yes sorry rodney... you were wrong about Clay and you're wrong about the uniforms.

Yeah sorry, IMO Clay has had way too many opportunities to show he can consistently make an impact for the Dolphins offense and I am now wanting to see the coaching staff move away from him and spotlight someone else. In fact, as harsh as it sounds, I wouldn't be upset if Clay just gets cut altogether and not waste a roster spot for someone that is too inconsistent.

The uniforms and the logo are still a blah look to me. Still don't understand with all the marketing talent in this world that Ross and others bought into this as the new look.

Yep. He didn't seem up to the challenge last night. :cry:

As for the uniforms, well I am still right about that one! :grin:

The white on white looks OK, the teal on white looks bland, boring, it has no pop.

I agree the white on white does look much better than the teal. Teal looks too vanilla and the teal look in the past was always my favorite.

It sounds harsh, but I happen to agree and this isn't just about last night's game for Charles Clay as this has been his body of work 3 years in now. Time to move on. I would rather go through the growing pains of the big rookie Sims and let him grow than go down the disappointing and inconsistent play of Clay. Lazy patterns, drops the ball, doesn't aggressively come back to the ball etc. etc.

Sims has Antonio Gates type size and also has athleticism to offer as well.

Where was Dion Jordan.....nothing in the box score?

Just over 5 yards per pass attempt. Guess the O-line can not hold up long enough for Wallace to stretch the field.

Hartline dropping a TD? That isn't his MO.

I see the turnovers are back.......

Tannehill was sharp though. The drops really hurt.
