I think overall, you've got to be pretty happy with the game. There are still some glaring issues, but that shouldn't have been a surprise since very early in the process. Tannehill had a good game. His stat line wasn't good, and there's people in the media suggesting he struggled but that's really kind of bull****. He did pretty much everything I think you want to see. He's making good reads, decisions, getting the ball out on time, and throwing it well... Just not consistently, and adding in the drops doesn't help. I'm not really at all troubled by the interception. It wasn't the best throw, but it was aggressive, within his capabilities physically, and he wasn't all that far from actually pulling it off. It was nice to see them get a more realistic dose of the run game and get results. I'm completely ready to concede to Alen that Reggie Bush doesn't have the ability to be a great zone rusher, but he's got enough physical ability and is running hard enough to make plays. I think there's a pretty good chance we start relying more heavily on Daniel Thomas as the year progresses. Seeing first contact run into Jorvorskie Lane and bounce off ineffectively on the professional level was nice. It's bizarre how pretty much the only bad games I've ever seen Anthony Fasano play are vs. the Falcons, and they were awful. I think at some point Charles Clay is going to be a pretty damn good weapon, but he's got to stop being so streaky in order to get a chance. Jonathan Martin still looks very ugly at times, but I think he took a bit of a breath from the ****-rain that was the game last week. There were several plays where he actually looked quite good against good competition. Legedu Naanee is looking more and more like a practice superstar who wilts in games. They really need Brian Hartline back. Defensively, I think you come away feeling a lot more confident with your team, and your defensive coordinator. I think tonight demonstrated a clear difference from the past two games with success being secondary to evaluation, and an actual "dress rehearsal". Kevin Coyle has some nice pressure packages. Olivier Vernon still needs to work on having more pass rush moves, but I don't think it's at all fair to qualify him as a pass rush specialist. I think the defensive outing was especially productive with the perspective of it being Gary Guyton and Austin Spitler starting and not, you know, our starters. Philbin certainly wasn't blowing smoke up our asses when he commented on the Dolphins second team defense performing well. They forced a 3-and-out vs. the Falcons starters, and I thought they stood up reasonably well even though they scored a touchdown the second. Defensive backs were still up and down, but I think that's basically a fact of life at this point and has been since 2009. I don't know if the change in coaching has schematically resulted in John Denney being freed up to get down the field, but it seems like he's consistently the first or one of the first guys to the ball carrier, which was pretty frequently the case early in his career.
