The Miami Dolphins took a beating on Sunday Womens Josh Sitton Jersey , losing to the New England Patriots 38-7. especially when it could have given the team a 4-0 start for the first time since 1995 and a three-game lead in the AFC East after just four weeks. It felt like the Dolphins never got off the plane, with the Patriots punching them in the mouth from the start of the first quarter through to Brock Osweiler replacing Ryan Tannehill at quarterback in the fourth quarter as Miami signaled surrender. The 2018 NFL Power Rankings from around the web are not likely to be kind to the Dolphins, even as they hold on to their one-game lead in the AFC East heading into Week 5.

Dolphins fans have been all over your friendly writer for picking against them. (I have twice: at the Jets in Week 2, and this past Sunday in Foxborough.) Bottom line: If the Fins belong among the elite, the top five, then they have to do better than being down 38-zip in the fourth quarter, giving Brock Osweiler some snaps. That 172 spot the offense posted in the “Total Yards” box was putrid -- especially coming against a defense that stunk in Detroit one week prior. Flipper would have been pissed.ESPNThis week: 14Change: Down 6Rookie snaps leader: DB Minkah Fitzpatrick, 230 snaps out of 279 (82.4 percent).

The one that opened 3-1 or the one that got blown out by the Patriots last week? We’ll know after they play the Bengals this week.Yahoo! Sports - Frank SchwabThis week: 16Change: Down 7I didn’t want to put the Dolphins even as high as ninth last week, but you can’t justify putting one of three 3-0 teams too low. But if you want comedy, remember that the Dolphins were trailing 38-0 with less than 100 yards of total offense in the fourth quarter, and then look how mad the Dolphins fans were last week when I said I didn’t think they weren’t a top-five NFL team. Funny stuff.Sporting News - Vinnie IyerThis week: 16Change: Down 10The Dolphins saw their undefeated run end quickly in New England.

The Dolphins got blasted. Waxed. Embarrassed in every way imaginable.Name a category, and the Dolphins were dominated in it. The team was outgained 449-172 and lost the time-of-possession battle by almost 13 minutes. Miami’s pass rush couldn’t get close to Tom Brady, and the ‘Fins spotted New England a 24-0 lead at intermission.Ryan Tannehill was 11-of-20 for just 100 yards. His 10 drives under center resulted in seven punts, two turnovers and the end of the half. None of those drives were longer than five plays.About the only thing the Dolphins had more of than the Patriots was penalties—10 for 89 yards.As Gagnon said Womens Youth T.J. McDonald Jersey Authentic Elite Limited Wholesale Nike Miami Dolphins NFL Shop , it was a sobering reality check.”That dud performance in New England was a stark reminder that the Dolphins are still a bridesmaid at best in the AFC East,” he said. “Their reputation was inflated by three one-score victories over beatable teams, with two of those wins coming at home. We were reminded on Sunday that this is a team that was so-so even before losing/waving goodbye to its best offensive player in Jarvis Landry and its best defensive player in Ndamukong Suh.”The Washington Post - Mark MaskeThis week: 15Change: Down 7Never make too much of one game. But in this case, it’s tough to avoid believing the Dolphins might have been exposed as AFC East pretenders rather than contenders on Sunday in Foxborough, Mass.Sports Illustrated/MMQB - MMQB StaffThis week: 18Change: Down 9Welp.Fansided - Matt VerderameThis week: 18Change: Down 2Oh dear God, what was that?2018 SeasonChange in average from last week: Down 6.7Highest Weekly Ranking: Week 4 - Niners Nation / Bleeding Green Nation / CBS Sports - 4Highest Average Ranking: Week 4 - 9.0Lowest Weekly Ranking: Week 1 - ESPN - 32Lowest Average Ranking: Week 1 - 27.3Week 1 Average: 27.3Week 2 Average: 21.7Week 3 Average: 16.1Week 4 Average: 9.0Week 5 Average: 15.7 Is it just me or did it feel kind of like a bye week? It was kinda nice to have a stress free Sunday. Almost feels as if Thursday’s game didn’t happen. Sadly, it did though. The Miami Dolphins lost. Again. We’re now 4-4 and halfway through the 2018 season. If I’m being honest, it almost feels like we are 2-6 with the way our team has been playing. This season is beginning to feel like last year and I don’t want to go through that again. What is happening with the Dolphins? The question every Dolphins’ fan seems to be asking and yet we can’t agree on an answer. Thursday Night GameLet’s back up to Thursday before moving on and discussing what is next for our team. I’m not a fan of Thursday night NFL games. I’m really not a fan of the Miami Dolphins playing prime time games in general. We tend to not play well and it’s embarrassing. Our team fell apart in Houston. The first 3 quarters the Dolphins appeared to be doing “ok” and then welcome the 4th quarter. Now, when I mean, “ok”, I’m saying we still could of had a chance if our defense decided to do something. The Bad and UglyYes, we have several starting players out. I don’t know of another team who has lost the amount of players we have so early in the season. That being said, it’s still not an excuse. There is nothing positive I can say about our defense. Even with a couple key players injured (Hayes and Harris) Youth Ryan Tannehill Jersey , it’s unacceptable how they have played. What is going on with Wake and Quinn? As a fan, I was pumped before the season started about those two. I was hoping to hear about them making multiple sacks a game. That’s not the case. Why can’t our defense make any stops? It’s like they gave up on that game. We missed too many tackles. We’ve barely had any sacks. Our run defense does not exist. Nothing existed Thursday. It’s not acceptable. Dolphins’ fans have every right to be angry and frustrated. Is Matt Burke a good coach for our defense? Based on the performance against Texans, no. But, is firing himgoing to fix our issues? Not likely. The GoodWho played well on Thursday? DeVante Parker, Danny Amendola, and Kenyan Drake. Those were my favorite players from the game. Let’s be honest, we didn’t know what to expect from Parker. The drama that unfolded before the game from his agent, made it seem he wasn’t happy in Miami. However, Parker shut those rumors down. I had a feeling he would play well. He knows fans have been 50/50 about him and he knew he needed to step up because we need him. We don’t have anyone else. Especially now that Albert Wilson is done for the season and Stills is injured. Speaking of Wilson, I hope we see much more playing time from Drake now with Albert out. Drake is good. Really good. He needs more plays. Period. Him and Amendola together on that trick play in the 3rd quarter...just beautiful.Let’s look at that again. Who else also thought, “Can Amendola be our backup quarterback?” Be honest. The thought entered your mind. I’m just trying to be hopeful. I miss Tannehill. Brock Osweiler is playing alright for a backup. Does that mean I think he could carry us the rest of the season? I really hope he doesn’t have to. If so, you better buckle your seat belts fans. It’s gonna be a long second half of the season if Tannehill doesn’t return (based on what Gase said today it may be a while too). That about sums up my views on last week’s game. The game went downhill in the 4th and no need to rehash that mess.What’s NextThe positive takeaway from playing a Thursday night game, is that the team has some extra time to figure out what went wrong and try to fix it before this Sunday. It’s almost like an extra bye week for us and Womens Daniel Kilgore Jersey , boy, do we need it.Our fan base is split. Twitter was a disaster Friday. I glanced at Dolphins Twitter for a few minutes, before I realized I wasn’t ready for that dumpster fire. Here is what my feed has been like the last few days: Fire Gase/Keep GaseFire BurkeRoss needs to goCam Wake needs to be tradedThe Dolphins will not win another game. We’re the same ole Dolphins.Can we trade Parker?Jameis Winston may be an optionI can fill a whole article of just all the reactions from Dolphins’ fans. Fans are frustrated and we have every right to be. That being said, I don’t know what the team needs. I’m not sure anyone really knows. Fans are arguing with each other and I get it. We’re tired of the same thing. Do I believe Gase needs to go? Nope. I like him. He isn’t perfect by any means, but I think he is good for our team. I do believe we ran our course with Burke, but who would replace him? I see people stating we need a new quarterback. We need to fire Gase. Well, what is your solution? Do we just keep hiring a new head coach every few years? How exactly will that help our team. Also, who would you hire? When Philbin was fired mid-season, the Dolphins didn’t exactly have lines of potential coaches eager to fill the position. Same with quarterback. I’m all for drafting a quarterback next year, but who? I think there will be maybe 2 decent ones. The answer can not be just to fire or trade everyone. That’s not going to fix anything either. I’m tired of watching our team fall apart each year. The worst part is when other fans, from teams like the Giants or Steelers, try to say they can relate to us. Has your team won a Super Bowl since 1973? Because that’s the last time the Dolphins did. The Dolphins have not won a playoff game since 2000. I was 18yrs old. I’ll be 37 this March. I love this team and willcheer them on till I die, but dang it. I want to see some of the good years that my dad and other fellow fans got to witness. I want to attend a playoff game and watch our team win. That’s the ultimate goal Womens Robert Quinn Jersey , right? You want to watch your team make it to the Super Bowl and win. It’s not easy buildinga winning NFL team. We’re not the only team struggling, but something has to change. The Miami Dolphins have problems and it seems nobody can agree on where to start to fix them. Week AheadTrade deadline is tomorrow. Gase stated today he likes our team, but needs to be healthy. Someone asked him about DeVante Parker at today’s press conference. Gase doesn’t see Parker going anywhere. I don’t think it would be wise to trade him anyways. When he is healthy, he is good. I’m not sure if anything will happen with our team before the deadline. All I know is something needs to change before Sunday. We play the Jets at home. A division game we need to win. We’re still second in the AFC East. There are several teams with about the same record as us or worse. The Dolphins season is not over, but if keep playing like the last two weeks it will be. I will be at the game this Sunday. I will be cheering us on, with my flag, like I do every game. Win or lose, I will always support the Miami Dolphins. Enjoy your week DolFans and let’s cheer on our Dolphins as they try to shut out the Jets on Sunday! Go Dolphins!
