Raiders @ Dolphins – LIVE BLOG

September 16, 2012

ONWARD.

I’m still trying to get the last few minutes of the second quarter out of mind from last game.  But ready to move forward, and I’ve decided to wait to doom the team to a horrible loss in this one until the game is played.  Can Tannehill fix the tipped passes?  Mike Sherman says that is all on him, not the O-line.  Sherman thinks T-Hill needs to find the passing lanes better, and I tend to agree.  I think we need a BIG dose of Reggie Bush today!  Not only because he is starting for my Fantasy Football Team, “The Best Show on Paper”,  but also because I think it would be a good strategy for Miami to win.  He is the best play maker on offense, and the receivers don’t seem to be stepping up.  Bess looked pretty good, so I expect him to get some looks too.

Defense?  ATTACK Palmer and focus on stopping the run.  Raiders will be looking to get better production from McFadden and the running game since they struggled in that area in their loss last week.

Should be interesting to see who avoids going 0-2 to start the season.  Even though every talking head in America will have the Raiders easily handling the rebuilding Dolphins,  I pick the Phins to dig deep and win this one 17-10.

Hit it up in the comments section for some live blogging during the game.

Come on Miami!

Dolphins Sign 4th Rounder Lamar Miller

June 1, 2012

There has been a TON of talk about the expectations (and hopes)  that Lamar Miller will be an explosive weapon for Miami as a running back, on special teams, and possibly in the slot as a receiver with his blazing speed.

The Dolphins took their first step of him reaching those goals by signing him to a 4 year deal.  Being the 97th overall pick in the draft, Miller could end up being a steal for Miami.  He has really been opening some eyes during OTA’s.  Hopefully he continues to develop and becomes a threat along with Bush in the backfield.

The Dolphins have now signed 6 of their 9 draft picks.

Sunday Spotlight: Reggie Bush

     With all the talk of the draft, much of the current roster of the Miami Dolphins isn’t being talked about very much.  Some people say they aren’t worthy of the being talked about, but I’m choosing to go a different direction.  I think there are solid players currently on the roster that can step up in 2012 and be difference makers and game changers for the Philbin’s team in 2012.  One of the players on my radar is Reggie Bush.
        To be honest he’s been on my radar since game 4 of last year.  The guy simply busted his butt every game and every play, no matter how bad the Dolphins record became.  His stats alone prove it.  Breaking the 1000 yard mark for the first time in his career, summing a total of 1,086 yards and 6 TD’s for a struggling team.He did all this while Sparano and company continued to just run him up the middle play after play.  While I don’t think this is the best way to use Reggie, I think he proved what he is capable of big numbers even when running as a every down back.  But what are his possibilities with the Philbin’s new offense this year?  My opinion:  The ceiling is even higher!  Imagine quick out passes to Bush in the open field with plenty of room to run! This guy can easily break some ankles in that situation!  I still think they should run him up the middle very now and then to keep the defense honest.  But he could basically be the 4th or 5th receiver any time he is in the game.  That causes issues for a defense trying to figure out who to cover on this well oiled machine of an offense. (hopefully).
          Being such a hard worker I believe he will be a guy Philbin will love to work with and get plays in for.  It will be interesting to see how Philbin uses him.  Could Daniel Thomas steal some carries from Bush? Possibly.  But the change of pace between these 2 backs will keep defenses out of rhythm helping to set up the quick timing routes of the West Coast Offense.
       Reggie Bush is a huge asset to this team moving forward, and he alone is the reason running back is not one of the many positions being talked about as a need for the Miami Dolphins in the 2012 Draft in 18 days.
