Hopefully he is much better after the car accident.
I would maybe lean that way because we don't want to be in a position if we have another injury to go shopping again.
Owusu and Stringfellow candidates for practice squad?
Pickle juice break.
I'm surprised to see Asiata get up there to first team. I wonder if his conditioning is better.
I agree Brendel may be a name to watch.
Eric Smith looks like the real deal to me and he hasn't been first team much, if at all, that I know of.
With Asiata, Young, Smith, and one or both of Brendel and maybe Steen as backups. One gets axe (or someone else gets hurt, which is more likely) when Larsen is back.
No way would I try to practice squad Smith. He looks like the real deal and has some nasty to him.
If you go ten OL, you may have to go five receivers, though. That might work because we will have plenty of practice squad options at receiver.
Yes. I wouldn't carry either one of them. And morgan might be in that category too. Isiah ford would hav a golden opportunity right now if he was healthy cause our depth wr group is loaded with meh. Not sure if he's coming back this year or not. It depends on if caroo is a slot option as to how much thought I give morgan.
I'd carry an extra olineman probably.
Also the 3 tight ends to carry is already locked up. The rest are obvious cuts
What the hell is going on with Juwan James??.....why is he sitting out again? He's not that good to be a sideline watcher and needs his reps.
He has a shoulder injury.
They are giving Maurice smith a long hard look at safety too. He's in a better position than aj hendy right now standing wise but I'd lean smith is gonna be cut also right now. Some inconsistent angles to the football and not a lot of upside. He's a bubble guy it looks though
McCain and verner over Pitts right now. If Pitts makes it it will be specials.
No choice if he's injured whether or not you think he's no good.
Great job @Albert Romano cheers
Shout out from the HC
Thanks for the updates Albert Romano!
If there is an ever-so-slight silver lining in our injury ravaged pre-season so far it is the positive signs of young OL like rookies Isaac Asiata and Eric Smith. Fingers crossed it continues.
Godchaux is French creole for "Quality draft pick."
like the McDonald's slogan says, "I'm lovin It"!!! I think Miami has some serious sleepers in Smith, Asiata and Brendel.
Granted it was one preseason game, but all the receivers showed up against the Falcons. Nice catches by Grant, Carroo, Stringfellow and Owusu. Owusu made two nice catches actually. Lots of depth there, but will be hard to keep them all. I think the final spot may come down to Stringfellow and Owusu.
Didn't know he was still injured and/or apparently re-injured it yesterday.
Well if that's the case then you better look for a bump in run this week. If they get all their run with future cuts it's gonna give you a pretty good idea what they are thinking. I'm expecting that the late run continues. Although I caroo hammy could bump one of them up somewhat I guess for the game
Carroo probably sits Thursday so that should give someone (s) more opportunity.
I'm scared to get excited. Last season our 1st team D just shut down everyone in preseason..... then disappeared week 1.
Our O would make anyone look good right now. I think that's bc they're still trying to find the identity with all the changes. OL tinkering is making that take longer. I'm good with it, just get it right.
You know I appreciate this
We need to keep Stringfellow because he has a great name.
Fair point althought they did makes plays against Atlanta as well but again too soon to say.
I think Hayes helps and the young new guys might be an upgrade to what we had last year. Time will tell.
Our 2018 right tackle
Saving Ja’Wuan James $9,341,000 cap hit with zero dead money
or a huge restructure for James at much less
I have to say, this is the 1st time in a long time, that I've come into a Finheaven, "Pre Season Game Thoughts" Thread and have seen so much positive discussion about the overall depth issues of the Dolphins. While I realize, after the 2nd pre season game it could be the act opposite, but for now it's refreshing seeing other Miami fans filled with positive outlooks on players like, Asiata, Godchaux, Brendel, Stringfellow aka "Airwolf", Owusu, Young, Allen, Reilly and Smith. To me it's a true sign that in the 2 short seasons under the current F/O structure and Coaching Staff, the team and organization seem truly headed in the right direction, in spite of the devastating injuries to Tannehill and McMillan. Players like William Hayes coming out and making positive comments about playing in Miami, former players, like Calvin Johnson coming down and staying with the team for days, just to teach the young guys. I know it happens a lot, but, it has a different feel this year. And let's not forget, Jason Taylor getting together with Charles Harris, just to mentor him and teach him about the NFL. It's contagious. Everyone seems like a true Dolphins family, supported by us, wonderful fans.
Seems like Asiata and Godchaux earned themselves some more high quality playing time from the game. Seize the opportunity
We are set at tackle for the future. Eric Smith was probably our best undrafted signing. I think he and Tunsil are the future bookends. James is gonna want too much
I could be wrong but I don't think you can pick up the 5th year option then change your mind.
I wonder if Allen has any chance to beat out hull or if they will just feel more comfortable with his experience out there
Little early for that but he did look good for his time out there.
I agree with the lower ceiling, but I believe he has a high floor too. Good player and can play special teams well
Any word on when we'll know when Cutler plays in a preseason game?
I think he gets a few snaps this week and probably plays at least a quarter in the third game. Just my guess.
James has the reputation of being really high character, a team player and not a greedy guy. Miami's offer will be dependent on his performance but you may be surprised.
I would hope cutler would at least get a couple possessions in this upcoming game and a half worth in the philly game. No run in the 4th preseason game
I'd prefer a quarter in this coming game and a half vs philly.
Jay Cutler will start his first game in a Miami Dolphins uniform Thursday night at Hard Rock Stadium (unless something horrible happens in practice the next two days) and that will mark the next significant step in the transition away from Ryan Tannehill and to Cutler as the starting quarterback.
