We may have found us a real pass catching TE. He continues to improve every game and I even saw him lay a block on a guy late in the game. I like what I see so far.

It’s clear Walton is the RB the rest of the way. I want Ballage gone and I really don’t care about Drake anymore. Walton finds holes, hits em hard and keeps his legs going. I’m sure the coaching staff isn’t looking at him as our #1 but I’d like this guy to stick around and be our Damien Williams.

Don’t like Fitz at all but I rooted for him hard today. The dude has balls of steel and deserved that TD.

Parker showing some physical play on his TD. Great to see. However I won’t miss him if he’s gone next year, he just doesn’t make enough plays although a lot could be blamed on the OL. But I just try to improve on his position if I can.

Pass Rush. If we cut anyone just cut bait with Harris already. We can sign someone off the street to do what he’s doing. We need some major infusion of talent there. And it’s going to take a few drafts to get it done, way too many holes.

I thought the coaching staff really showed us some promise today.

Why is Reshard Jones on this roster. A body taking up a spot and he doesn’t play. I get the contract but he needs to be gone. But I do thank him for his service, was a good player for us

I was prepared for this season, I’m at peace with it although I was still stressed today during the game trying to win one. But I really think we have a future here with Flores and some of the young guys. It’s in Grier’s hands now and I hope to god he turns into a real GM

I really wonder if we had the top pick mathematically locked up if some fans would still root to lose each game. I think they would. I understand not wanting to win last week because that would have tie breakers involved since the skins won’t win a lot. But really Miami can win one game and still get the number one pick.

They can win one game then lose to the bengal who will have some of their injured guys back.

I think some people just think it is cool to make these jokes about losing. Their were people complaining when we were winning. Come on. One win won’t hurt You can still get the first pick.

Ballage has a role as a short down specialist, but he is not a starting running back. Keep him on the roster until someone supplants. I thought Boehm turned in a good performance at center. I would love it if he was the starting center.

This coaching staff does not get enough credit for player development. The team improves every week.

Ballage barely squeezes out a yard in short yardage situations. The air knocks him down. Waste of a player especially at his size.

Coaching staff is definitely doing some good things.

The team plays hard to the end.

They will continue to improve each passing week, to the dismay of many.

Gesicki with 4/42..it’s nice to see him contribute a few catches..keep him no where near the line and let him just flex or play the slot..

The improvement is apparent. You can see it. Cutting all those training camp players just before the season hurt with the continuity. But after 7 weeks the players seem more in tune with both the offense and defense. I love what I'm seeing from Mark Walton, Mike Gesicki and the Offensive Line. Defensively Graham and Flores have found a scheme on 3rd down that's making it hard for opponents to operate. The run defense has really stepped up these last few weeks, as well. I was beginning to question the coaching staff, but these last 2 weeks have kind of answered my concerns. The players play hard.

Possibly, but that's not taking into account that Cincy needs a QB.

Soooo, are you saying that we can win one game...then you're ok with tanking from there on?

I think some people just think it is cool to make these jokes about losing. Their were people complaining when we were winning. Come on. One win won’t hurt You can still get the first pick.
As long as our fate remains in our hands...don't win a single game. Once it's etched in stone then and only then, should we be trying to win a game. This is a tank...cut and dry. You told the world as much with your early moves. I will not respect cold-feet midtank.

That is not how tie breakers work when it comes to the draft. It is not decided by head-to-head but strength of schedule. The team with the weaker strength of schedule wins the tie-breaker and picks ahead. So root for all Dolphin opponents to lose, such as the Ravens and Chargers right now.

We know what Fitz is. He's a solid backup playing a leading role. That said, he played well today. I thought he made a lot of plays, moved well in the pocket to keep plays alive and scrambled for that touchdown. His interception really hurt, though. Miami had the lead, held the ball for much of the third quarter and ended up with no points to show for it. A 17-9 lead there would have been huge. Sometimes it's better to just throw the ball away.

Agree with you on Parker. He showed nice effort today. In fact, the effort today was there for the team. I wish Miami could have found a way to win, it was there for the taking. But the two turnovers killed it.

Didn’t know that. Thanks.

Agree. The last two weeks Miami at least looks like an NFL team. Without the turnovers today, I think the Dolphins win.

Ya I honestly don’t want to go winless. That is a stain on the franchise. If that what it takes to get tua. I will be okay with it. But I prefer one victory. You win one game that is forgotten in history. Happens a lot. Win zero that is always remembered. Just my two cents

Not winless...but if that's what it takes.

The bigger stain was the immediate evacuation of anyone who could catch, block, or tackle...and have them led by a rookie HC.
