  • The blame

    I put this loss/total embarrassment all on Tannehill. He was absolutely miserable tonight. I held out hope after the first drive of the second half, but was obviously disappointed. Our defense did there job, and kept us in it for a long time. You can't even blame D.C. for this. It's all on Tannehill. Fingers crossed Wake is ok.

    Tannehill is what we thought he was...This game isn't all on him, but he pulled what we are always going to see and that's the master of inconsistency. This was and entire offensive squad loss. I know the D gave up yards, but the offense couldn't stay on the field and yes RT's two picks turned into 14 points. Tonight there was no run game, Lazor got cute, receivers didn't make enough plays and RT looked well, like RT.

      Nobody played well tonight. the defense hung in there for awhile but with our offense doing nothing it was like trying to plug a hole in a dam, eventually it was going to burst.

        Tannehill will ALWAYS let you down when you need him most, but there was more than enough blame to go around...It's so-o-o par for the course for us, don't know why it's ever a surprise!

          This is who the Dolphins are. Whenever hopes and expectations get raised they let us down. Its been this way for the past 30 years as long as I can remember.

              why couldn't we have been moved to the afc south when the nfl realigned in 2002? let the colts stay in the afc east.

                Many of us watched Ryan "Copperfield" Tannehill perform his magic act last week with a near perfect act. What we didn't realize, or just tried to ignore, is that his performance was done against a terrible team and done so having done ALL his offensive damage with passes that did NOT exceed 13 yards. Yes, that is correct, not one of Tannehill's passes were over 13 yards last week. So, how was Belichick going to stop such an "unstoppable" near perfect quarterback? Well, he was going to stop those ridiculous short routes and force him to try and beat the Dolphins by going down the field. Throwing down the field is Tannehill's kryptonite and it weakened the entire offense. Sure, the receivers did drop some passes that they should have reeled in but for the most part the bad passes, at least half the sacks and the inaccuracies was all to be blamed on the quarterback. The Dolphins can NOT put the game on his back, he just isn't that type of quarterback. We saw the REAL Ryan Tannehil tonight. Yes, he can beat up subpar teams but if you think he is going to take the Dolphins to the playoffs, you might want to temper your expectations. JMO

                  I totally agree that Tannehill stunk tonight but he didn't get much help either. The o-line did not block well for either the pass or the run. The defense had its moments but ultimately gave up 34 points which is far too much for us to realistically have a chance to win even if Tannehill had played well. We all know by now that Tannehill is not good enough to put a team on his back and carry them to a win. He has to have everything around him go well meaning we have to be able to run the ball effectively and he has to have good protection. I think the throwing downfield thing is a bit overblown because when you look at Brady, he doesn't really throw the ball downfield either. He mainly throws short and intermediate routes.

                    Get a reliable Oline and a power back with Miller and RT will do just fine. He can't win games for you but he can manage it if we have a stout run game... I keep saying it and I won't stop until we have one.... We need a bruiser RB..

                      Yep, and I think most on this site see that. It's funny on FH that you can't be on the middle ground as you are either a Tannehill fanboy or hater. Too funny. I think in a Shanahan system he would do very well with the right pieces around him.

                      I am with you all. Right now RT is a serviceable QB, above average in this league. But he is not elite, may never be. I would have to see it to believe it. But he is the least of our worries. The o line, injuries, LBs, DBs all are more needed. And yes, a back who can always get you a tough yard or 2, makes Miller a great counter. Same way they just used Blount against us.

                    Love it. We put up 15 yards rushing, give up 5 sacks, receivers dropping the ball and the Pats allowed to decleat our players while the ball is in the air.....and it's all Tannehills fault.

                      They're blaming RT for global warming as well.

                    What else would you expect whole playing the NFLs golden not team? Hell it was almost like the pats defense new our play calls before our offense did.

                      Agreed. While Tannehill shares a large share of fault, for anyone to say that it was totally Tannehill's fault is silly. Entire offense and ST failed. Lazor continues to disappoint. We give up on running to quickly. Miller had 9 carries. That is right at 2 touches a qtr.

                      Opening drive, we ran Miller for 8 yards, 10 yards that was called back on Sims holding putting us in long situation, then No gain, and finally 3 yards. James was in for the first 4 snaps, then injured and gone. Lazor gave up running at that point.

                      Rest of the game, blocking sucked with Fox at RT. Dallas always saves his signature whiffs for when we really need a big play. Fox might as well have been wearing a Pats jersey rest of the night. Biggest plays of the game were when Tannehill made things happen on scrambles despite the drops in the game.

                      Hoping with the extra few days of rest, we get James back and that Dan gets in Lazor's ass about sticking with the run.

                        I do agree, but Tannehill is, in my eyes, largely to blame for last night. There were bad plays called, such as running the ball on 3rd and1, when we didn't run it much at all, the pass attack was good that drive. I admit, the o_line was bad, but not so bad Tannehill was running for his life all game. He could have done better, and the rest of the team would have followed his lead.

                        So Tannehill was expected to do better, but not the rest of the offense? Did you miss the bad blocking, the drops, the bad kicking, the terrible ST play, or Landry's completely stupid fielding of balls inside the 10? Tannehill was completely under pressure from the opening drive once the blocking went South. I understand the emotional posting, but with zero help and the drops, there wasn't much more the QB could do. The sacks and hits started on the opening drive, as did the OL penalties.

                        Opening drive we lost James, then Albert gets a false start after Sims cost us a 1st down with holding on Ninko. Plenty of blame all around. Again the best plays of the game were when Tannehill made something happen on his scrambles.

                      I'm guessing James is out for awhile. If it's a turf toe injury that is several weeks, possibly a month. Get used to Fox at RT or Thomas at RT and Douglas at LG (which is almost my preference after watching Fox this season).

                        Yeah, both will be out against the Bills. No real loss with Parker at this point, but losing James and Wake both are impact injuries. On a bright note, we get Ayaji back either against the Bills or the following week against the Eagles.

                        Billy Turner was better than Fox at RT last season. Not sure about Douglas, but I'd rather see Douglas get a shot at LG in place of Dallas. Douglas played LG and LT in college and did so fairly well.
