    Sure it was our 4th team offense vs their 3rd team defense (maybe 4th), and the play was perfectly called and executed. The best part was the throw from Fales or the catch and run from Stringfellow. The best part was the first people to greet the rookie in the endzone was our first team offensive stars. The guys who hardly even saw a sniff of the field tonight. Guys who weren't even dressed out. The leaders of our team where the first ones down there to celebrate with a rookie who is a long shot to make the team.

    loved seeing that. Ajayi, Parker, Stills, and Grant all chasing him down the sidelines. that is something you would have never seen with Philbin as coach.

    #35 for Atlanta did not help his chances on that one- i could have done more myself to stop our man.

    Stringfellow just raised his stock. Too bad he won't make our team, but good for him. Also, I expect Fales to move ahead of Doughty on the depth chart. Neither was very impressive, but Fales had his moments.

    I love that we have a big-play offense under Adam Gase.

    I think David Fales is a long shot, but if he's still practice squad eligible I think Doughty might be in trouble.

    Stringfellow perfectly played #35 by making him turn his hips twice. He also pushed off slightly with his forearm as the ball arrived.

    He got called earlier in the game on a push off and it was a ticky tacky call IMO. I think the kid has a good feel for the position.

    I wouldn't be so quick to rule Stringfellow out of making the team. Especially with Landrys future in the air

    I would think he is at least PS bound. Especially since we have no clue what is up with Scott.

    I ljust ran into Stringfellow at Walgreens across the street from training camp. For those who haven't seen him up close, this guy is a friggen monster. I was surprised how big this dude was. For comparison sake, I see Duarte jogging all the time.... he looks like he'd have trouble blocking my 12 year old niece.

    Stringfellow looks soo much more like a Tight End than Duarte.. I know he is a long shot, but hopefully he can keep flashing & he makes the team. I don't see how though

    When he walked out I asked the old lady at the cash register "did you know that young man scored a 99 yard TD last night?"... a young girl checking out in front of me looked like she wanted to go chase him down haha

    With Scott and Ford injured Stringfellow, Morgan and Owusu have a better shot of making it as the 6th receiver if Miami keeps that many.

    Fales' pass was pretty radical. Great to see the guys run down hooting and hollaring too.

    Here's a shot I captured of Stringfellow doing the same thing in practice. The kid is the real deal! I hope we find a way to keep him.

    At this stage, I would easily take him over Grant as a WR.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't this Stringfellows 1st game? What has he shown as a WR compared to Grant? "Granted" that he wasn't going against #1's or #2's. But this has to be at least encouraging.

    I hope they put him in with the 2's next week to see how he performs.

    I think it's a senseless debate if we're going to use what either player had shown as a receiver in the NFL. This was Stringfellow's first game and Grant had one good preseason game as a receiver last year. Outside of that neither had anything on paper that would warrant even having the discussion. I think both players have a shot especially with Ford and Scott injured. However, I also think there could be some cuts prior to the regular season from other teams that could be just as promising. For example if the Packers cut Jeff Janis I might consider him based on his experience, size speed and he's still young. Plus Janis is decent on special teams. I'm uncomfortable knowing that outside of our starting 3 receivers we have a combined career total of 3 regular season receptions with the other 9 receivers currently on the roster. Or that Landry has 288 receptions in three NFL seasons, the rest of the receiving corp in camp has a combined total of 249.

    Thanks for making it easy for me. Sometimes it's hard for me to tell if someone is being serious or joking.

    He's making a case to get on the taxi squad. Good for him.

    Well know the kind of playmaking ability grant offers (and he rarely saw the field as a wr last year- like 15 snaps?) his hands are suspect but what exactly does Stringfellow bring other than the flavor of the preseason like so many have come and gone before...? Hardly anyone would be talking about him if anyone tackled him like they should have

    It's just odd to write one off or the other when they are basically at the same stage of their careers

    He didn't have a flashy 99 yard td, but I think Owusu looked just as good as Stringfellow on Thursday night. He did a good job of making two contested receptions in traffic and getting his feet down inbounds on both, one for a td and the other for key first down late.

    The battle for our #5 WR is definitely going to be interesting to see unfold. Lots of talented prospects.

    That push off was actually a very smart move on his part. I've seen plenty of receivers do that over the years to gain slight separatuon over the defender. It actually is more of a skill then people would think

    IMO, his footwork at the snap is what allowed him to juke the DB. Beautiful work.

    The best thing grant did in the preseason opener was catch all his punt returns.

    That helps Miami carry him as it's 5th or 6th wr which is if he does make it is where this is headed.

    The best part about that TD was that we haven't seen football in like 8 months and a guy in a Dolphin uniform made a game winning play. Ultimately it means nothing and the guys doing it are going to be PS candidates at best but while I don't get upset when the Dolphins lose in the preseason its still fun to see some guys man up to win a game when it does mean something to them personally.

    Fales won't ever be able to play like that against real NFL defensive players but in the preseason it was sure entertaining and great for evaluation purposes to see a guy put the ball up for his receivers to make a play over and over. It beats the frequent sacks, broken plays, and mistimed route/pass combinations that happen all the time.
