2015 Dolphins Draft Picks
Nice breakout game by Isaiah Ford catching 6 passes for 92 yards. He was a sleeper pick a couple of years ago and never really seemed to get his chance. Let's see some more this down the stretch.
Patrick Laird had some nice, long runs in the 4th quarter and a huge catch on the Dolphins' final drive. I doubt he's a feature back but he can run, pass and block well enough to be a serious contributor in the Miami rotation.
Andrew Van Ginkel came up with a huge sack in the 4th quarter that should have helped ice the game for Miami. On the next play, he got pressure on Sam Darnold yet again which helped force a bad throw. The refs bailed New York out with a questionable PI call.
Nik Needham, despite being tagged for PI at the end of the game, had himself another good day. He broke up a TD catch, made a bunch of tackles and was pretty solid in coverage.
Our weekly, redundant reminder that Miami's OL doesn't have a single, solid starter. Maybe if Jesse Davis kicked back in to guard I could change that comment, but this group will be overhauled in February.
Ryan Fitzpatrick's ball placement was bad. I don't care what the stat sheet says or that he did his best Michael Vick impression on a few runs, he cost Miami points with errant throws that should have been TDs.
Miami's No Name Secondary didn't have an overall great game. They're lucky Sam Darnold missed on a few throws to the end zone and were gashed by Robby Anderson.
The zebras deserved every bit of coach Flores's verbal tirade at the end of the game. In general, they make themselves too much a part of the game rather than letting the players play.
Hoping Devante Parker's injury is minor and that he'll be back on the field soon. He is one of the few bright spots this year.
I expected Miami to win this game with some momentum from the Philadelphia game. It is disappointing they could not muster up a better performance against a lousy Jets team. With only 3 games to go, it will be interesting to see if Coach Flores sticks with the "best players will play" theme or if we'll get a better look at some of the younger guys. Miami isn't getting the top pick so I'd still like to see them pull out a few more wins before we put this nightmare season to bed.
Devante Paker!!! What makes this the cherry on top of a very good season is that it came versus a quality opponent. We've seen flashes but yesterday really cemented what he can be when utilized correctly. It seems like the thought of being a bust really lit a fire under him.
Ryan Fitzpatrick did a great job, and in my opinion, has earned himself the mentor/bridge job for 2020. His teammates really respond to him and he clearly is bringing out the best in his receiving talent.
Mike Gesicki made some nice catches, and his TD was so awesome the cameraman caught Brent Grimes watching from the stands with his jaw dropped. Gesicki seems like a guy who's career is about to take off.
Patrick Laird displayed some nice catches, great blocking, and a TD run. He'll be getting more snaps now that Kalen Ballage is hurt.
Jason Sanders not only caught a TD pass on a cool flip from Matt Haack but he ensured the victory with a clutch field goal in the 4th quarter.
The defense played like garbage in the first half but really buckled down in the second half. To step up against a tough opponent in December is a good sign of the fight these guys bring to the table.
Sam Eguavoen came back from obscurity to make some tackles and notch a sack.
Brian Flores, Chad O'Shea, and Patrick Graham are really bringing out the best in the afterthought cast that they have been handed. They are teaching these guys to play hard and carve out future roles on the team. They adjusted nicely and completely overwhelmed the Eagles in the 2nd half.
Nope, not today. Today we focus on the positives.
Julien Davenport got abused and then reinjured. I'm not sure he was ever healthy but Miami seems intent on trying to develop him. Hopefully, he can improve into a quality backup.
That was by far the best game of the season. The player reaction in the locker room after the game was unlike anything we've seen in years. They believe in their coaches and in each other. Miami is entering the softest stretch of their schedule. Is it possible they could get to 6 wins? I'm cheering for it! I no longer expect to see Josh Rosen unless Fitzpatrick gets injured. We'll also get an idea of what Myles Gaskin and Patrick Laird can do with more snaps in the backfield. Buckle up because this should be a fun final month of the season!
