Earlier This week I requested the query, what do the Miami Dolphins must do to tug off the upset over the Buffalo Payments within the upcoming playoff recreation this coming Sunday? Lots of the trustworthy from the location chimed in. Listed here are a number of the opinions from our personal website members.
dolphinfan4lyfe, regardless of the problems at quarterback and the truth that we’re right down to the third-stringer, believes a W or L hinges on our potential to throw the ball this week.
Usually I might say run the ball, run the ball, run the ball. However the reality is, this can be a time to move the ball early and infrequently. Their secondary is harm, and no i’m not speaking concerning the security, however they’ve 3 injured corners and one other injured security on the roster. To not point out their greatest move rusher in von miller is out.
Phincent believed that all of it fell to Tua but when he does not play, which all of us now know he is not going to then all could also be misplaced.
Tua must play and must play inside himself ie not press the ball and simply take what the protection provides him. We have to run the ball effectively and never go away from the run when it’s working. Protection must get off of the sphere on third down particularly third and lengthy. If Tua doesn’t play all bets are off.
EJPLAYA upon listening to that Tua was out in opposition to the Payments appears to agree with Phincent on Tua taking part in being our likelihood on this recreation.
Simply introduced Tua is not going to play vs Payments. Whereas dissatisfied and sure means now we have no shot now, I’m glad they’re taking good care of his well being. Like Phillips, with sufficient relaxation you’ll be able to put the concussions behind you.
Phinsox has a extra optimistic tackle the sport, assuming the staff performs as much as their potential I’m guessing.
To beat Buffalo the Dolphins should end drives and end the sport. They need to run the soccer, reduce penalties, and have a strong fourth quarter. Regardless of all of the criticism they’ve acquired and as unhealthy as they might have checked out instances, the worst they’ve finished within the 8 video games they misplaced is begin the 4th quarter down 6 factors they usually solely did that when. They’ve collapsed late, however in each recreation they both had the lead or had the ball with an opportunity to take the lead within the fourth quarter. I imagine they are going to be on this recreation late, as they’ve been all yr, I simply hope they’ll end sturdy and that they don’t miss early TD alternatives and accept FGs to make issues much more tough.
Shula’sShadow believes the staff simply has too many points at this level within the season to make an trustworthy run at a win Sunday.
Exhausting to see any state of affairs the place the Fins can win besides for a whole whiteout and rain the place limits the sport to a 3-3 sort rating. Payments truly did us a favor and beat the Pats so at the very least now we have yet another week of Dolphins. So can’t complain.. Qb points, secondary, offensive line, working again, tight finish room unhealthy anyhow, and a protection that cant get off the sphere usually……… so many points and on the mistaken time….. This Crew wants the offseason badly to be trustworthy.
Yarganaught believes the important thing to the sport is to attain early and infrequently.
I feel a very powerful factor is for Miami to not get down too early within the recreation. In the event that they don’t rating on every of their first 3 drives, they might discover themselves down by 21pts when the 2nd quarter begins. No getting back from that with our injured Offense.
h-townchief appears to additionally suppose that the sport hinges on Tua taking part in (or at the very least Skylar taking part in at a a lot greater degree than final week) and even wonders about Tua’s future (as many people are).
I’d like to see Waddle and Hill make large performs this weekend, however have a tough time seeing loads of that occuring with out higher QB play. Sadly, this isn’t Tua’s 2nd concussion this yr. It’s his third. Had the group stepped in and shut him down after the preliminary one, for at the very least one recreation, he might need had the chance to maintain taking part in by the yr. The Dolphins would have at the very least 3 extra wins, and be a powerful contender for the SB. Now, I’m questioning if the NFL will lose an incredible QB to early retirement.
edwinpena believes his late Christmas current will probably be a profitable Dolphins run recreation this weekend.
Run Run Rudolph !!! Phins want to provide a heavy dose of Wilson and Ahmed and provides very manageable third downs to whomever QB is on the market. Ought to’ve picked up Duke Johnson this week. I imagine he’s obtainable someway. Final yr Pats and Belichick beat Buffs by working like 95% of the snaps, only a few move makes an attempt by Mac Jones. This restricted Josh Allen on the sphere and Pats received the sport.
Invoice Moody has a listing!
1. Run the ball
2. Run the ball
3. Generate a move rush
4. No silly penalties
5. Make each kick
TheMiamiUte is one other Phinsider trustworthy hoping for a superb run recreation Sunday.
Run the ball early and infrequently. Make the sport shorter. Restrict the quantity of possessions that the Payments offense has. Hope that Allen has one in every of his a number of turnover video games. Maintain the Payments to FGs as a substitute of TDs. Benefit from all (or virtually all) of your alternatives to attain factors. Keep away from large performs on STs (Naheim Hines took two KOs to the home versus NE). Have Sanders be clutch like in opposition to the Jets. Do all of that and it’s Dolphins by 5.
