This game very much followed the same pattern as the last couple. The Dolphins look like the better team by a significant margin for a section of the game, and then give it away through a series of implausible big plays, bad refereeing, 3rd down ineptitude, capped by a late game sack cycle. Only they won this time. I'm not sure this represents a shift in fortunes as much as probabilities evening out. Ryan Tannehill played a pretty solid game. In the grand scheme of things, I'm happy with pretty solid when it breaks a cycle of poor play. He threw a couple of questionable passes, but he also lead a pretty good game tying score and we didn't see the Tannehill Death Cycle of the last couple weeks either. Bad pocket presence was at a minimum as well. Lamar Miller is a guy I think could be pretty special if he were handled better. A better run scheme and dedication to running it and I think he could potentially be a premiere back. The last couple weeks his outside rushes have been excellent- He extends the play almost completely to the sidelines to the point you're expecting a minimal gain, and he turns the corner for a 10-yard gain sometimes untouched. Michael Egnew is a pretty solid fullback. I'd like to see Charles Clay get some chances to rush the ball outside of short yardage, because he looked pretty good doing it. He was a > 5.0 yard rusher in college, and you can very much get a package advantage by having him as the single back in pass-oriented formations. Doesn't hurt that he might be the best pass blocker on the team. It's nice to see Mike Walilace have a solid game where he doesn't **** up badly. He even caught > 50% of his targets. What was the pass interference call on Hartline? We didn't see a replay at the game. The offensive line played pretty well this week, in both phases. Nate Garner generally isn't very good off the bench, but had a good game spelling Incognito as well. Bryant McKinnie has been a pleasant surprise as well. Cameron Wake may not be here as long, and won't end up meaning as much to Dolphins fans, but I think there's a good argument he's more dominant than Jason Taylor was in his prime. I'm a little bit unsure how to take the play of Randy Starks and Paul Soliai. They're playing the best football of their careers. They are doing so in a contract year, which is kind of suspicious, but both players have been in the same situation before and not responded this way. Olivier Vernon is the most improved player no one is talking about. I'd like to see all of the linebackers playing well at once. It seems like it's just one at a time while the other two aren't great. This week Ellerbe is excellent in coverage, while Wheeler struggles. Brent Grimes will be remembered for the long interception, but he had a pretty godawful game in terms of missed tackles. He had what, five? Did he have two on the Bernard run? If Dmitri Patterson could stay on the field, he'd be a huge boon to this team. The guy is tied for the league lead in interceptions and has played in 33% of the defensive snaps this year. Reshad Jones continues having a very mixed season. I'm not sure Sturgis really represents a notable upgrade over Dan Carpenter, at this point.
