This team is not talented enough to sleepwalk through three quarters of a game, even against the Rams. Generally this year the story has been the team playing hard and just misfiring or having bad luck at inopportune times, but this week the intensity and effort really wasn't there. There isn't a lot of excuse for the team to have the kind of issue it had in the trenches on both sides of the ball vs. the Rams after what they've done to other better lines and front-7's. I hope it's just them looking past the Rams, as silly as that is, and not a characteristic of this team. Ryan Tannehill had a really nice game from the standpoint of his development, but despite the rating and efficiency it still ain't the Cardinals game. He made good decisions and threw a lot of nice, accurate passes, and continues to look in certain aspects way beyond his years. Reggie Bush needs to be sat down in SOME sense. Either literally or figuratively, but he needs to make better decisions running the ball. He's turning bad blocking into disastrous plays that shouldn't be on their own merits, and he's routinely missing the stuff that is there trying to go for the home run. I don't think his health gets him out of it, he's made nice runs whenever he's played and today he was good in space in the receiving game. He's acting like the New Orleans Reggie Bush, and that's really troubling. Not a great day for the receivers in general today. Davone Bess was on, but Brian Hartline barely gets so much as a target. Finnegan is a quite good cornerback, but I don't think he's *that* good. They could have really used Jabar Gaffney out there today, I'm curious what the issue was. The blocking was not good. Some of it was on the offensive line, but I also think the non-linemen blocking was just as big an issue. Blitz pick-up was bad, or in the case of the Tannehill fumble, non-existent. I think the Dolphins need to look into upgrading Guard in the off-season. For John Jerry's growth he's just a guy, and Incognito I think has been pretty horrifying at times. I think the Ram's coaching staff did a good job of coming up with stuff for our defense. They did a good job of putting together mismatches and playing with some of the Dolphins alignment rules. I think Koa Misi spent most of the first half lined up covering a slot receiver while Sean Smith was covering a Tight End, for example. At the end of the day, you give up loads of yardage but 13 points. I'm not sure that isn't still a winner, even though you seemingly got burned by Sam ****ing Bradford. Olivier Vernon had a real good game and it was dumb for people to write him off. He's not a Nickel DT, he's not a stand-up DE specializing in the zone blitz, he's a rookie. The linebackers I don't think there's much to say about. Burnett and Dansby had pretty solid days, Misi I think was exploited to a degree. Weak day by the cornerbacks, and sort of a letdown after the play last week by non-starters. Sean Smith wasn't too bad, but he wasn't great. Reshad Jones again wasn't exemplary, but I think he might have saved touchdowns on both those early big plays that got the team down 6-0. Brandon Fields was the **** today. 50-something yard average punt, I believe. It took giant balls for Joe Philbin to call the fake punt when and where he did.
