    This is the first game where I think we see the coaches playing to our offenses strengths. Using a lot of RTs mobility, tons of read option, and it keeps the running game alive. I think we are seeing Ryan's current ability being tapped. Do not let him sit in the pocket and throw the ball down field because he will take bad sacks. Maybe some day he will fix it.

    Hartline is expendable and so is Gibson. Wallace and Landry should be stalwarts in this offense with Clay receiving and Simms blocking (Clay is HORRIBLE) and draft a 3rd or keep Mathews.

    This offensive design is great!

    He still took a few bad sacks today. The guy needs to learn how to throw the ball away.

    Edit: A few sacks that took them out of field goal range.

    I loved how they moved Tannehill around. We're FINALLY seeing his athletic ability and he's clearly comfortable using his legs and throwing on the run.

    Both those sacks were terrible blocking. The second one, especially.

    One of those sacks was a designed rollout if I remember correctly though.

    RT is still a step too late in the pocket. He doesn't shuffle side to side enough. Not to disagree, but I'm not sold on him being a strictly pocket passer. But he is STILL developing.

    Clay with a horrible blocking attempt if I remember correct, Clay is horrible, horrible in space with blocking.

    On both of those sacks, he didn't have much much of a chance to do either. The second one especially the guy was unblocked

    the whole crew at the finsiders is talking about this new craze that involves moving Tannehill around and how it seemingly gets him to perform better...this week the narrative will overwhelmingly be about Tannehill on the move and read option early.."early" being the key word..


    Not only does it help him personally to find his rhythm, but it opens the field for easier execution..

    Still had plenty of time to throw it away rolling out. Was a bad sack at the time.

    Nate Garner got blown up not Clay. Colledge was injured the play before.

    Not sure if that was with regard to my post or not, but I'll freely admit I'm no expert. Pretty much common sense I'd think that you don't roll a heavily block-reliant play into the backup lineman's (who JUST came in the game) area.

    Garner never got a chance on Ratliff, he did a stunt around the end, backpedaling at the snap and circling to his right. Clay was in the gap Ratliff went through as Albert was engaged on the end, and Clay lazily tossed an elbow at him as he ran by. It was not possible for Garner to engage Ratliff. If anything, Garner should have helped Satele on the LBer.

    We're all fans. But as great as Miami played today there were a couple of plays that shouldn't have happened that took points off the board and should be addressed.

    He could have dove at him.

    Clay was not in position to stop Ratliff. To "lazily toss an elbow" Clay had to stop running to the left and toss the elbow to the right.

    They made a blow out a semi-close game. There is still room for major improvement offensive wise, but i see this offense unfolding in front of my eyes.

    Clay had a key block on Miller's TD run, and also made the block that sprung RT for the long gain on 4th and 1. IMO, he is rapidly improving as a blocker.

    Dove at him? c'mon man

    If I remember right Clay had a number of whiffs on blocks, and some good blocks as well. He's not very good on the WR screens though.

    I can't say that he isn't improving. Maybe I'm only remembering the bad, but Clay is letting some big hits occur on screens and bubble screens. RT got smashed as a result on one today and Wallace fumbled on another earlier in the year, just off the top of my head.

    Clay is an inconsistent blocker. Sometimes he blocks his man, other times he misses horribly.

    This part is such an overlooked factor. People look at guys like Wilson and CKap and think they don't make poor decisions. Reality is that the QB run threat keeps the D honest more often so QB decisions are easier. (Well that and the wins. Since those teams have won more people forget about all the bad decisions and bad throws they and even the elite QBs make every game).

    I dunno. I think Tannehill and the team have played well for three games in a row now...and they did it against 3 teams that epitomize a horrible team, an average team and a great team. I think that's consistency and its consistency that many have been and still are screaming for.

    We, as a fan base, are used to seeing this team put together a week of dominance here and there. It's about time though that they put a string of dominant weeks together. And with little mistakes like taking sacks and losing 3 points is not going to help. This franchise is a model of inconsistency and the fans deserve better.

    I can't disagree. I feel like this offensive staff (Lazor) has got a grasp on this teams' (Tannehill's) strengths finally. It feels great!

    Its also people defending very poor analyis of tannehill early in the season when clearly the main problem was the oline. They'll nitpick him to death for the resyt of the season

    I might feel differently about the Packers loss if we rattle off 2 more wins in a row, but right now that wound still hurts, and the fear that this team is going to go out and suck eggs against Jacksonville or San Diego makes me afraid to peel off that scab.
