The Miami Dolphins had only 5 days to think about their poor performance in the Hall of Fame Game last Sunday.  Ryan Tannehill and the Dolphins were anxious to get back on the field and show that their sloppy performance last week, was simply due to it being early in the preseason.   It didn’t help that the first practice after that game was perhaps the Dolphins (and Tannehill’s) worst practice of training camp.  He rebounded nicely on Friday night against the Jaguars, as did the rest of the team. Photo Courtesy of Dolphins.com The Jaguars, it should be pointed out, were the 2nd worst team in the NFL last season….and this is preseason.  The Dolphins defense played well early, but the offense didn’t do much on their first three possessions.  After that, the Dolphins dominated the game and the scoreboard, getting out to a 14-0 lead and cruising to a 27-3 blowout. What I liked - Ryan Tannehill - Tannehill finished the game 5 of 9 for 75 yards and 1 TD.  That’s good for a QB rating of 120.1.  The touchdown pass to Keller was both pretty and scary at the same time.  He put the ball right where it needed to be, away from the defender and into the hands of Keller.  Great bounce back effort from young #17. - Dustin Keller - Keller is going to be a big weapon this year for the Dolphins.  If he’s available in your fantasy league, pick him up.  With Hartline and Wallace outside, drawing safety help, it’s going to leave Keller 1 on 1 in the middle of the field.  That’s exactly what we saw last night with Keller catching 2 passes for 46 yards, including the touchdown pass from #17. - Cameron Wake - Wake blew right past #2 overall pick Luke Joeckel for a sack of Blaine Gabbert.  Wake also added another tackle for loss in his brief work against the Jags. - Battle at Wide Receiver - Chad Bumphis, Brian Tyms, and Marvin McNutt are all trying to make a case to make the Dolphins final 53 man roster.  Tyms had 2 catches Friday night for 34 yards;  Bumphis has 2 for 26 yards; and McNutt had 1 catch for 17 yards and a run for 12 yards.  It will be interesting to see who comes out on top as this battle continues.  (continued on page 2, CLICK HERE)
