    Sorry for the lack of intro this time. It's been a busy week.



    Tampa are huge odds favourites to win:

    Here was the latest injury report via the Phinsider:
    Dolphins vs Buccaneers 2021 Week 5 injury report: Gronk out, Parker questionable - The Phinsider

    "Wide receiver DeVante Parker, who was limited in practice all week due to shoulder and hamstring problems, was made questionable for Sunday’s game. The rest of Miami’s injury reports from throughout the week included cornerback Xavien Howard (shoulder/groin), safety Brandon Jones (ankle), cornerback Byron Jones (quadriceps/ankle), center Greg Mancz (neck), and tight end Adam Shaheen (neck) all appear to be cleared for the game.

    The Dolphins are also hopeful defensive tackle Raekwon Davis will be cleared from the injured reserve list prior to the game, allowing him to return to the defensive line rotation and solidify the middle of the line of scrimmage for Miami. “Yeah, I mean if all things go well today, I expect him to be up on Sunday,” Dolphins head coach Brian Flores said of Davis before Friday’s practice.

    The Buccaneers will be without three players, headlined by tight end Rob Gronkowski. Similar to the injury Tagovailoa sustained in Week 2, Gronkowski suffered fractured ribs in Week 3, forcing him to miss last week’s game and now this week’s contest as well. The Patriots did not place the tight end on injured reserve, hoping he will be able to return prior to the three-week unavailable stint an IR designation would require. In three games this season, Gronkowski has 16 receptions for 184 yards (11.5 yards per reception) with four touchdowns.

    Also ruled out for the Buccaneers were defensive lineman Patrick O’Connor, who has a calf issue, and safety Antoine Winfield, who is dealing with a concussion. Tampa Bay listed running back Giovani Bernard (knee), cornerback Jamel Dean (knee), and outside linebacker Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder/hand) as questionable for the game.

    Wide receiver Antonio Brown (knee), wide receiver Chris Godwin (thumb), and defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh (rest) were all listed on the injury report during the week, but are expected to be available for Tampa Bay on Sunday."

    Fins Up!

    Please surprise me, Flores. I need to see a great plan on defense and an attacking offense from the first snap. If we do the same things we've done all year, then I will start to question how much coaching is holding this team back (beside the bad picks Grier has made).

    They got a lot of key injuries in tampa… but they still have a lot of explosive pieces on offense and their d line is going to eat..

    Let me save you all some time. Tampa 30 Miami 13 go enjoy your Sunday because it won’t be pretty on the field.


    I’m not being a hater but i have zero faith in this coaching staff against Tampa

    This game is actually in TV where I live so I'm gonna count that as a win. I probably won't feel that way in a few hours

    Amazing how Austin Jackson is still on the field. He's still holding almost every play. We sacrificed Kindley who was playing ok because we don't want to bench Griers first round pick.

    Nice play calling, co offensive coordinators upped their game today. Tampa's secondary is very banged up so we should be able to pass the ball.

    He was moved to guard because of how bad he is at tackle, line is looking good in spite of him, not because of him. We are also getting the ball out quickly. I catched him holding twice on the last drive he's lucky it wasn't called.

    Looks like we'll get to see what Sinnet can do. Hopefully they keep pushing down field and passing a lot.

    This team should be built to contend right now. So sad that we wasted all those picks on this result of a product.
