For the second week in a row, the Dolphins were able to stay with an elite team in the NFL and lost largely through shooting themselves in the foot. A more talented team would be able to make up for the margin of error, but at this point suggesting the team lacks talent pretty much defies common sense. I don't think Ryan Tannehill played a bad game, but he needs to make better ****ing decisions down the field. He had no business throwing about half of those passes, and a lot of the choices to go down the field were not really all that good, especially in the context of the down, distance, and point of the game. Overall, I liked the game-plan of playing mostly out of the shotgun with Anthony Fasano in the H-Back role to help out as a blocker. Reggie Bush had his best game in a while, and and I think they've gotten better at managing the range of things that Bush is good at. He's got stuff he's really good at, but the compartmentalization is problematic. I think Lamar Miller's problem is probably more than just mental that's kept him off the field. He's probably not practicing well enough. If Brian Hartline were bigger/faster/stronger or drafted in the 1st/2nd round, he would have caught that touchdown pass. It's really on him, and I imagine he'll probably be out of the league when his contract is up. Piece of ****. I don't know how the **** Aldon Smith got away with the hands to the face on Jonathan Martin on that first sack. It was like watching football in the 1960's. Or for that matter, Richie Incognito getting shoved in the back when the play is downfield with the referee jogging right past it. I think the offensive line played a solid game. Jonathan Martin was a bit over-matched at times, and I think some of his issues have nothing to do with left/right, but he also looked pretty good at times. Nate Garner I think also had a pretty solid game after I was sold he couldn't play tackle worth a ****. Tackling was pretty maddening at times in the front-7, and I think they were pretty inconsistent on their option reads. That killed a pretty much otherwise solid performance vs. a good team. Lots of penetration on both the run and pass game, and with a standard pocket passer I think the defense looked like they were going to kill it, but the 49ers did a good job with play action and keeping Kaepernick on the move. I think Jared Odrick is making a case to replace Randy Starks these last couple games. Starks has fallen off badly, and Odrick has come on, albeit still a bit out of sorts in the edge position. That Cameron Wake guy, eh? Pretty curious to see when the Rewind comes out who/what was shutting down Vernon Davis, I don't know if he caught a pass. Karlos Dansby missed a tackle, but overall had a pretty damn good game. His play had seemingly fallen off a bit since his elbow was injured(which may have nothing to do with it, but who knows). Sean Smith is pretty officially in one of his slumps that seems to have defined his career. He either seems like he's a pretty good cornerback who shows flashes, or he's dog ****, with no inbetween. Recently, he's been dog****. Reshad Jones didn't have any eye popping plays this week, but the safeties were spot on for the most part besides Chris Clemons dumbass late hit. I feel bad for Jonathan Freeny, because that touchback was bull****. He should have been more aware, but the call hinged on him having possession. He clearly ****ing had possession. Brandon Fields acting like a stellar team mate. You're a ****ing punter, dude.
