AFC East Podcast: Preseason Week 2

The Miami Dolphins took a loss to the Baltimore Ravens 31-7 in the second week of preseason play. They aren’t ready for AFC East play.

As you can tell by the score, the Dolphins offense was very pedestrian. Senorise Perry had 6 carries for 25 yards and recorded a touchdown. The lost fumble on the kick return might have really hurt his confidence. Jay Culter was there for a drive but no one noticed. On the defensive side, things were rough. Zavian Howard had the easiest interception ever. But overall the defense couldn’t figure it out. They gave up several big plays. Don’t be surprised to see the Dolphins at the bottom of the AFC East.

What Should We Expect From The Miami Dolphins In 2017?

Miami Dolphins fans, it is that time of year again. Expectation and anticipation is building ahead of what could be another positive season for Adam Gase’s side. In 2016, Miami went 10-6 but fell at the first hurdle in the playoffs.

With the New England Patriots still locked in as the primary betting contenders in the AFC East, Miami will be fighting for one of the wildcard spot again this year but the Dolphins look well placed to reach the playoffs for the second season running.

Strengths

Defensively, Miami’s strength is up front. Playing predominantly with a 4-3 scheme, newly promoted defensive coordinator Matt Burke wants the Dolphins to be even more aggressive on the line. And why not?

Miami is blessed with an abundance of defensive talent and the Dolphins could be set for a mega year. They gave up 30 receiving touchdowns last season but Miami’s impressive tally of 16 interceptions and 33 sacks says a lot about their pressure upfront.

As previously mentioned, New England are Miami’s main rivals in the AFC East. The New York Jets are in disarray and plenty of pundits believe that Todd Bowles’ side may finish as the worst franchise in the National Football League.

Meanwhile, the Buffalo Bills are a bit of a mixed bag and it would take a brave man to back Sean McDermott’s men in the race for second spot in the AFC East. Miami won at home and on the road against Buffalo last year and more success against their divisional opponents could be on the cards.

Breakout

Jay Ajayi had a breakout year in 2016 and Dolphins fans will be expecting Gase to adopt yet another run-heavy approach this time around – especially if Ryan Tannehill is out through injury for an extended spell. Ajayi averaged 4.9 yards per carry last year, rushing for over 1,200 yards and eight touchdowns.

If the Miami running back can replicate those figures, the Dolphins will be in business and his influence should free space up out wide for the likes of Jarvis Landry, Kenny Stills and Devante Parker.

Gase doesn’t have what you would call an ‘elite’ option at receiver but this Miami corps has plenty of potential. Landry is the shining light at the position and has been Tannehill’s main target in recent years but the Dolphins are now stronger than ever out wide.

Throw pass-catching tight end Julius Thomas into the mix and the Dolphins have a plethora of options on offense. Thomas flourished at the Denver Broncos with Peyton Manning under center and although Tannehill isn’t a future Hall of Famer, he could still make a solid impact with the Dolphins quarterback steering the ship.

Looking specifically at Miami’s schedule; it isn’t straightforward by any stretch. Facing the New England Patriots twice a year can take its toll on a side but the Dolphins must also cope with facing the NFC South and AFC West this year – Miami will need to be at their brilliant best to emerge victorious.

Getting off to a fast start is essential. With fixtures against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Los Angeles Chargers and New York Jets to start the season, a 2-1 or even 3-0 record is a must if Miami are serious about competing this year.

Winning on the road in the National Football League isn’t easy but this Dolphins side are made of stern stuff. Adam Gase’s side are heading in the right direction and another 10-6 season beckons if Miami can hold their nerve and negotiate a tricky schedule.

AFC East Podcast Ep. 1 Preseason Week 1

The Miami Dolphins finished at the bottom of the league in run defense not only in the AFC East but also the entire NFL. The front office decided to address these issues in the draft. Defensive end Charles Harris from Missouri was their 1st round pick. Raekwon McMillian, the linebacker from Ohio State that’s already torn his ACL, was drafted in the 2nd round. Then, cornerback Cordrea Tankersley was chosen in the 3rd round.

The Dolphins did win their first preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons. Their receiving corp consisting of Jarvis Landry, Kenny Stills, and DeVante Parker is looking to be on the best in the league. Jay Cutler is ready to save the day. The Dolphins won’t be the laughing stock of the AFC East.

New Dolphins QB Cutler Buys Back His Number 6 From Backup QB Brandon Doughty

New Dolphins quarterback Jay Cutler is in a spending mood these days, buying back his jersey number 6 from backup quarterback Brandon Doughty.

Here’s the story of how it all went down from PFT:

Dolphins quarterback Jay Cutler wanted to wear No. 6 in Miami, just as he did in Denver and Chicago, so he shelled out a little cash to make it happen.

Backup quarterback Brandon Doughty confirmed that Cutler bought No. 6 from him.

“We worked something out,” Doughty said, via the Sun-Sentinel.

There’s no word on how much money Cutler paid Doughty for the number, but given that Cutler has made more than $100 million in his career and Doughty makes the league minimum, it probably wasn’t hard to find a dollar amount that wasn’t a lot in Cutler’s mind but was well worth it in Doughty’s mind.

Jay Cutler Says Wife Kristin Swayed Him to Sign with the Dolphins

Jay Cutler said Monday that he went “back and forth” on whether to remain in broadcasting or sign with the Miami Dolphins, but his wife, TV personality Kristin Cavallari, ultimately talked him into continuing his NFL career, ESPN reports.

Cutler parted with the Chicago Bears in March after eight seasons, and was then hired by Fox as an analyst to work in its No. 2 NFL broadcast booth. Dolphins coach Adam Gase reached out to Cutler shortly after starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill suffered a knee injury last Thursday.

Gase, who was Cutler’s offensive coordinator with the Bears in 2015, said Monday that Cutler needed no persuading to launch a comeback. But Cutler likened the conversations with Gase to college recruiting, saying the decision to return was difficult.

“The last four months I’ve been in a different mindset, getting ready for the Fox deal,” Cutler said. “I was pretty good with where I was in my life; I was around the kids a lot and felt pretty content. So I went back and forth on this. My wife talked me into it more than anybody else. … I think she got tired of me being around the house.”

Cutler said his two sons and pickup basketball games at his alma mater, Vanderbilt, helped him stay in shape. He missed time last year with a sprained right thumb and a labrum injury that required season-ending right shoulder surgery in December, but said he’s healthy now and confident his arm will be fine.

“It’ll come back pretty quickly,” Cutler said. “I’m not worried about the throwing part. Getting used to the guys and the more detailed stuff, that’s what we’re going to have to hit the fast-forward button on.”

Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry Under Investigation for Battery

Dolphins’ star wide receiver Jarvis Landry is under investigation for battery, Andy Slater of WINZ reports.

The alleged incident took place in a Fort Lauderdale apartment earlier this year, multiple sources say. It involves Landry’s girlfriend.

She has not been cooperating with authorities, sources say.

After deciding to not drop the case, the Fort Lauderdale police department forwarded it to the Broward County State Attorney’s Office.

A decision on possible charges is not expected this week.

Dolphins head coach Adam Gase said “we’re aware of it,” when asked about this report on Monday morning.

Landry has an open paternity court case with his girlfriend in Broward.

“The parties are involved in what has been a very civil family court case,” her attorney said. “Beyond that, we have nothing to add.”

Dolphins Ink Former Bears QB Jay Cutler to One-Year Deal

The Dolphins and former Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler agreed to a one-year deal on Sunday, sources told Adam Schefter of ESPN.

The one-year deal is worth $10 million, plus up to $3 million in incentives, a source told Schefter.

In May, Cutler had retired from the NFL and was hired by Fox Sports as a game analyst.

Dolphins coach Adam Gase has played a significant role in convincing Cutler of the reasons he should play for the Dolphins, sources told ESPN’s Jeff Darlington. Miami also raised its monetary offer, sources close to the situation said.
