First Pre-Season game for the 'phins. Post here about the game. What are you guys looking for? Want to See?
- Speed and tempo of the O. - Run blocking - Pass blocking and blitz pick up - RTH, will he get the ball out of his hands quickly? - Run D especially the LB group - Which rooks and backup's will emerge as players? WR Matt Hazel, RB Damien Williams, LB Chris McCain, DE Terrence Fede have all flashed strong in camp and weren't expected to do so. I want to see if they flash during a game. - Anyone who is so far off the radar suddenly flashes huge? There always seems to be one or two guys who suddenly show up and impress that no one has heard about. Who do you think that might be?
Anyone know if this is gonna be shown live on NFL Network or anywhere else? I know NFLN says they will show every pre-season game but sometimes it is 2 days or so later. I am chomping at the bit to see this game absolutely as soon as possible. I will hate if I have to wait a couple days, but I will try to be patient. And yes, I know it's only the 1st pre-season game, but still it seems like forever since we played...
*edit - Found them on NFL Network Sat and Tues at 10am EST. Guess I will be waiting until Saturday Morning dangit!
It will be replayed on NFL network at 6:00pm Saturday. I live in Florida but Tampa doesn't always acknowledge The Phins so I gotta wait. But love the first official game thread. We can finally get back to actually talking about football!
The #1 thing I want to see is How RT looks in this new O. The 2nd thing I want to see (and think it`s possible) is to see a lock down secondary. Finnegan and Grimes are looking really awesome, and Delmas is going to pair well with Jones.
That link shows that NFL Network will be showing the game live tonight (Fri 8/8). Start time is 7pm EST. Last nights games were done with NFL Network people commenting on it from the studio. I don't know if this is going to be the trend or not.
Stephen Ross...ur an assclown. Sell the Dolphins immediately before you completely wreck this franchise.
If you guys have $20 to spare, I would highly recommend the NFL Preseason Pass from NFL.com. You can watch every preseason game (Dolphins or otherwise) live on your computer (unless it's being aired locally on your TV), and can rewatch full length or condensed rewinds of the game once they've aired.
This game from an offensive stand point could get ugly as both Moore and Devlin are on IR, unless there willing to take an extended look at Tannehill which they may because it's a new offense we will see a lot of Brock Jenson and Seth Labato. Could be the O-line and running backs get extended work tonight which isn't a bad thing got 2 new backs Orleans Darkwa and Damien Williams to evaluate. Gillislee and Thomas need to impress.
2014 draft picks - James, Landry, Turner should see a lot of time. Fede may get extra work, Jordan being suspended during reg. season and Vernon on IR.. Jordan could see a lot of time at DE tonight.....
undrafted 2014 FA - RB Damien Williams, TE Harold(Gator)Hoskins, DT Anthony Johnson, LB Chris McClain all have looked good in camp and are pushing for 53 man roster spots.
Binns and the other Damian Williams are fighting for the last WR spot, AJ Francis and S Michael Thomas the guy who intercepted Brady for the win will also be fighting for a roster spot.
