  • Ravens at Dolphins: What to watch for Miami in 2018 Preseason Week 3 The Miami Dolphins will host the Baltimore Ravens tonight in the third week of the preseason. This game should feature the starters for both teams more than any other game during the preseason Womens Kenyan Drake Jersey , with the clubs using this as a chance to make sure everything is ready for the regular season before protecting their key contributors next week during the fourth preseason game. A lot has to be answered still for the Dolphins, and hopefully this game will give us all a better understanding of what will happen this year.After a 10-6 season in 2016, landing in the playoffs, the Dolphins regressed in 2017, falling to 6-10 in one of the most unusual seasons ever. Included in the insanity was the training camp/preseason loss of both the offensive play caller, quarterback Ryan Tannehill, and defensive play caller, then-rookie linebacker Raekwon McMillan. Now, as the team looks toward 2018, they have both of those players back and will hope that is a big part of their struggles from last season.What should we be watching for in this week’s game? Those two are a big part of it.1. Ryan Tannehill, David Fales, and Brock Osweiler.Tannehill has to prove the offense is ready for the regular season. He has played fairly well so far this preseason, at times making throws that look like there is still some rust to work out, but solid play thus far. The offense has proven it can speed up the tempo of play and they have shown they are capable of moving the ball up-and-down the field. The problem is, they have not shown they can score yet. Miami is relying on field goals a lot during the preseason. Part of that is head coach Adam Gase admitting they are not calling red zone offense plays, but at some point, the first team has to get the ball into the end zone.Behind Tannehill, Fales and Osweiler need to establish who will be the backup quarterback this year. Fales jumped out to an early lead, but Osweiler has not gone away. One of the two of them need to come out hot tonight and show they are the player Miami can rely upon should the need arise.2. LinebackersMcMillan is a large part of this, and he needs to quickly move from looking like a player on the field for the first time on defense - which he is, but has to get through that - and start looking more like the middle linebacker in charge of the defense. Maybe it is unfair to McMillan, but it is what is needed right now.Next to McMillan, Kiko Alonso resumes his role on the outside and he is healthy, so hopefully he will be able to compliment McMillan and be ready for a better 2018. Rookie Jerome Baker appears to be the other starting outside linebacker, but he is going to make rookie mistakes. The linebackers as a whole have to come together and figure out how to support each other and the defensive line, and tonight may be the best chance for them to figure that out astray will likely see the most game snaps they will see this year.Behind those three, players like Stephone Anthony, Chase Allen, and Quentin Poling need to step up and show they can be the depth options Miami will need at some point this year.3. Mike GesickiThe Dolphins have not really involved rookie tight end Mike Gesicki much this preseason. He was targeted twice in the team’s preseason opener, but was overthrown both times. He was not targeted last week. The Dolphins have seemed to be more interested in having Gesicki block in the preseason, working on his technique and giving him experience there Authentic Akeem Spence Jersey , but at some point, the team is going to have to get him involved in the passing attack more than just in practice. 4. Defensive tacklesThis almost feels like the same situation as the linebackers, where younger players are being asked to step up and perform, and now they need to do it. Jordan Phillips has been battling an injury, but Davon Godchaux and Vincent Taylor need to step up and prove that they can be a starter and a depth option, respectively. Akeem Spence should be locked in as one starter, with either Godchaux or Phillips playing in the other spot. Whatever the case, the team was gashed up the middle last week against the Carolina Panthers, and they need to show that they can plug up those holes this week against the Ravens.5. CornerbacksA few weeks ago, it appeared the Dolphins were set to have a dynamic set of cornerbacks, with starting caliber players buried behind other starters on the depth chart. Now, Xavien Howard is one starter, and the rest of the group is a mess. No one seems to want to claim the other starting position. After allowing Cordrea Tankersley, Tony Lippett, and Torry McTyer all have shots as the top player opposite Howard, Miami last week moved nickel cornerback Bobby McCain outside, with rookie safety Minkah Fitzpatrick moving up to play in the nickel. Will that combination actually work? Will someone else finally step up and claim the spot? The Dolphins need to get this settled and tonight would be a great time for that.Honorable mention: PenaltiesWe have talked about penalties a lot, especially pre-snap penalties. Miami needs to get them under control. Is it just me or did it feel kind of like a bye week? It was kinda nice to have a stress free Sunday. Almost feels as if Thursday’s game didn’t happen. Sadly, it did though. The Miami Dolphins lost. Again. We’re now 4-4 and halfway through the 2018 season. If I’m being honest, it almost feels like we are 2-6 with the way our team has been playing. This season is beginning to feel like last year and I don’t want to go through that again. What is happening with the Dolphins? The question every Dolphins’ fan seems to be asking and yet we can’t agree on an answer. Thursday Night GameLet’s back up to Thursday before moving on and discussing what is next for our team. I’m not a fan of Thursday night NFL games. I’m really not a fan of the Miami Dolphins playing prime time games in general. We tend to not play well and it’s embarrassing. Our team fell apart in Houston. The first 3 quarters the Dolphins appeared to be doing “ok” and then welcome the 4th quarter. Now, when I mean, “ok”, I’m saying we still could of had a chance if our defense decided to do something. The Bad and UglyYes, we have several starting players out. I don’t know of another team who has lost the amount of players we have so early in the season. That being said, it’s still not an excuse. There is nothing positive I can say about our defense. Even with a couple key players injured (Hayes and Harris), it’s unacceptable how they have played. What is going on with Wake and Quinn? As a fan, I was pumped before the season started about those two. I was hoping to hear about them making multiple sacks a game. That’s not the case. Why can’t our defense make any stops? It’s like they gave up on that game. We missed too many tackles. We’ve barely had any sacks. Our run defense does not exist. Nothing existed Thursday. It’s not acceptable. Dolphins’ fans have every right to be angry and frustrated. Is Matt Burke a good coach for our defense? Based on the performance against Texans, no. But, is firing himgoing to fix our issues? Not likely. The GoodWho played well on Thursday? DeVante Parker, Danny Amendola, and Kenyan Drake. Those were my favorite players from the game. Let’s be honest Womens Ja'Wuan James Jersey , we didn’t know what to expect from Parker. The drama that unfolded before the game from his agent, made it seem he wasn’t happy in Miami. However, Parker shut those rumors down. I had a feeling he would play well. He knows fans have been 50/50 about him and he knew he needed to step up because we need him. We don’t have anyone else. Especially now that Albert Wilson is done for the season and Stills is injured. Speaking of Wilson, I hope we see much more playing time from Drake now with Albert out. Drake is good. Really good. He needs more plays. Period. Him and Amendola together on that trick play in the 3rd quarter...just beautiful.Let’s look at that again. Who else also thought, “Can Amendola be our backup quarterback?” Be honest. The thought entered your mind. I’m just trying to be hopeful. I miss Tannehill. Brock Osweiler is playing alright for a backup. Does that mean I think he could carry us the rest of the season? I really hope he doesn’t have to. If so, you better buckle your seat belts fans. It’s gonna be a long second half of the season if Tannehill doesn’t return (based on what Gase said today it may be a while too). That about sums up my views on last week’s game. The game went downhill in the 4th and no need to rehash that mess.What’s NextThe positive takeaway from playing a Thursday night game, is that the team has some extra time to figure out what went wrong and try to fix it before this Sunday. It’s almost like an extra bye week for us and, boy, do we need it.Our fan base is split. Twitter was a disaster Friday. I glanced at Dolphins Twitter for a few minutes, before I realized I wasn’t ready for that dumpster fire. Here is what my feed has been like the last few days: Fire Gase/Keep GaseFire BurkeRoss needs to goCam Wake needs to be tradedThe Dolphins will not win another game. We’re the same ole Dolphins.Can we trade Parker?Jameis Winston may be an optionI can fill a whole article of just all the reactions from Dolphins’ fans. Fans are frustrated and we have every right to be. That being said, I don’t know what the team needs. I’m not sure anyone really knows. Fans are arguing with each other and I get it. We’re tired of the same thing. Do I believe Gase needs to go? Nope. I like him. He isn’t perfect by any means, but I think he is good for our team. I do believe we ran our course with Burke, but who would replace him? I see people stating we need a new quarterback. We need to fire Gase. Well, what is your solution? Do we just keep hiring a new head coach every few years? How exactly will that help our team. Also, who would you hire? When Philbin was fired mid-season, the Dolphins didn’t exactly have lines of potential coaches eager to fill the position. Same with quarterback. I’m all for drafting a quarterback next year, but who? I think there will be maybe 2 decent ones. The answer can not be just to fire or trade everyone. That’s not going to fix anything either. I’m tired of watching our team fall apart each year. The worst part is when other fans, from teams like the Giants or Steelers, try to say they can relate to us. Has your team won a Super Bowl since 1973? Because that’s the last time the Dolphins did. The Dolphins have not won a playoff game since 2000. I was 18yrs old. I’ll be 37 this March. I love this team and willcheer them on till I die, but dang it. I want to see some of the good years that my dad and other fellow fans got to witness. I want to attend a playoff game and watch our team win. That’s the ultimate goal, right? You want to watch your team make it to the Super Bowl and win. It’s not easy buildinga winning NFL team. We’re not the only team struggling, but something has to change. The Miami Dolphins have problems and it seems nobody can agree on where to start to fix them. Week AheadTrade deadline is tomorrow. Gase stated today he likes our team, but needs to be healthy. Someone asked him about DeVante Parker at today’s press conference. Gase doesn’t see Parker going anywhere. I don’t think it would be wise to trade him anyways. When he is healthy, he is good. I’m not sure if anything will happen with our team before the deadline. All I know is something needs to change before Sunday. We play the Jets at home. A division game we need to win. We’re still second in the AFC East. There are several teams with about the same record as us or worse. The Dolphins season is not over, but if keep playing like the last two weeks it will be. I will be at the game this Sunday. I will be cheering us on, with my flag, like I do every game. Win or lose, I will always support the Miami Dolphins. Enjoy your week DolFans and let’s cheer on our Dolphins as they try to shut out the Jets on Sunday! Go Dolphins!
