Originally written November 13, 2012 on Phin Nation:
The Miami Dolphins were left shell shocked on Sunday in their 37-3 loss to the Titans.  The Dolphins came out flat, sloppy, and looked like they wanted to be anywhere but on the football field.  The good news for the Dolphins is that they don’t have to wait very long to get back on the field and right the wrongs that took place on Sunday.  The Dolphins will be leaving Wednesday for Buffalo and a game with the division rival Bills awaits. While it is good news that the Dolphins don’t have to wait long to get back on the field, it also means that they don’t have much time to correct the issues that plagued them against the Titans.  The Dolphins need to do a better job running the ball, throwing the ball, and stopping the run.  That’s a lot of work that needs to be done in a compressed period of time. Sorry, I had to include one of my favorite pictures from this weekend’s game (she says hi by the way).  Ryan Tannehill needs to get back to playing mistake free, turnover free football on Thursday night.  If you take out the Jets game 3 weeks ago, when Tannehill only attempted 5 passes, he has posted a QB rating of 86.5 or higher in each of his last 4 games before Sunday’s nightmare against the Titans.  He looked like a rookie quarterback on Sunday and must improve. However, he has the right makeup and ability to do just that. Why was he so bad on Sunday?  First, I don’t think he was THAT bad on Sunday. Yes, he threw 3 interceptions and yes, one of them went for a pick-6.  But overall, his completion percentage is the same it had been all season. He did rely more on check downs because the Titans sat back in coverage.  Tannehill was only blitzed 10 times out of 40 drop backs.  That’s not something he’s used to because teams have been blitzing him like crazy. He will adjust and he will improve.  (cont’d on page 2, click below) Pages: 1 2
