4 plays that would have made a difference…

 

1 - clock runs out at end of half; no FG attempt

 

2 - clock runs out at end of game; no FG attempt

 

3 - Milano dropped what would have been a sure pick 6

 

4 - Bass shank

One thing I learned today is that this team is not ready for life without both Poyer and Hyde. I think we can manage without one for some time. 
 

But Johnson/Hamlin can’t direct traffic and don’t have the play recognition skills those guys have.

 

I get it. One game. But still.


Johnson and Hamlin are sort of different types of safeties. I was impressed at how well they hit and tackled and blitzed. Don’t think they have the cover skills that are anywhere close to Hyde

and Poyer.

I thought Hamlin played well actually.  Johnson looked like he struggled.

They had one big explosive play in what way did you learn that?


The team got beat on multiple occasions with misdirection and play recognition. Which is where Poyer and Hyde excel.

I was pleased with them in coverage today.

They said in commentary 97-99 (I thought, unless I misheard and it was 87-89!). Unless they meant it's building to that? Could it be warmer on the field?

I'm about 1.5 hours north of the stadium.  Right now it is 87 F.

 

"Feels like" 96F on the heat index.

 

That's about what it has been all day today and for the last several weeks.

 

The weather in SE florida is pretty consistent.

 

For probably the last 2 or 3 months, it has been right around 90 each day, but it is "103" on the heat index.

 

Humidity is around 60% most days.

I am sorry, but playing in that heat was plain dangerous for both teams. You would think the union would have issues about that. There had to be like 20+ Guys who went out.

 

I was thinking during the game that it really isn't an advantage for the home team either...the body can only take so much heat.

And they should be blitzing more. Instead of playing soft zone on 3rd and long.

Or both DL out...starting center, back up center, WRs go out , RT .... Whut..?

 

We could have won w/o Hyde poyer bro...half team went out.

Lol....I know every back injury I had caused me to wobble around and fall to the ground uncontrollably.

Two to add:

Josh throws an awful dirt ball to an open McKenzie in the end zone

Davis doesn't come down with a near routine TD catch.

 

It took all these plays and injuries to half our team for the Fins to win, at home, by two. We'll be fine.

Had a debate about this earlier this week about this. I was worried about our ability to handle the blitz.
 

While we obviously handled it well to have a very great offensive performance, where it hurt us was on a few key plays (the fumble and some of the pressure generated in the red zone). And we were never able to really Make the dolphins pay with a huge pass play. 
 

will be curious to see how it goes next week, because the ravens are going to bring it too. They aren’t sitting back in a shell.
