Cushing.


Chris Jones. I thought he had a pretty good game last week for a rookie. Hope he follows it up right.

Jefferson & Tuggle I thought Tuggle looked pretty solid last week. Need Jefferson to continue to improve

Ja'Gared Davis. Kind of under the radar last week, but had some plays he looked good on. Showed power and range.
Just FYI, but I am pretty sure Chris Jones is out for this game.

On game day. DO NOT download any software. Try different links until you find one that works for you.


1. David Quessenberry

2. AJ Bouye

3. Deji Karim

4. Jake Byrne

5. Do Sonic Sam or Nate Menkin get any reps?

Keenum play before TJ

LeStar Jean redeem himself

Swagger and Keo make good/better plays than last week

Special Teams

And Cushing comeback to lay a hit on the guy that did him in last season.

I think we can safely say he's out considering he's been in a walking boot all week. And, Kubiak said he wasn't going to play.

Always looking at how the 1st team is shaping up.

Case of course. And TJ.

Hopkins and Swearinger

Special teams

Considering it's the third game for the Dolphins, i'm looking forward to seeing our 2's going against their 1's.

I don't think so. Although this is technically their third preseason game, it should be played as if it's their 2nd. The Dolphins will have five preseason games so there's no reason to change anything.

Thanks, I had not seen that.

Many other things to watch. I want to see how Swearinger responds to last week's less than middling effort.

5. Want to see more of RB Wood. He looked pretty good last week.

4. Hope to see Brian Cushing play for the first time since the Jets game last year.

3. I want to see a great injury-free game out of WR Hopkins

2. Can Mitchell continue to dominate the LOS like he did last week?

1. Keenum to Jean..........TOUCHDOWN!!!! I'd love to see that highlight happen in every game that they play in. Hoping for the best for both of these guys.

I don't think we will learn much on the defensive side of the ball. The Fins offense does not impress me. I doubt there's more than a couple of guys that could start on the Texans. The defense gets better work in practice.

I do think Miami has a pretty good defense. I'm interested in how the o-line handles the responsibilities. Opening holes for the running game and protecting Schaub. I think this is the most interesting and important aspect of the game.

They expect to have him playing in the next game. But don't worry, they intend "to play it safe"...............and have him playing in the boot.......

5. Watt vs. the new guy at LT for the 'Fins.
4. Cushing. He says he's "ready to hit somebody"; well, now's the time.
3. Swearinger. Has he learned he better wrap up against NFL big boys?
2. Earl Mitchell. Was last week real?
1. Schaub and the 1st team O. They kinda played dink & dunk last week and only put a FG on the board after getting a gift at midfield. With most of the studs playing I want to see much more production. I especially want to see him connect with Hopkins and Graham. I'll be disappointed if the O gets off to one of their classic slow starts. I don't want to see that $%!t this season.

Bonus: The 2nd string battles at RB and QB and 3/4th WR performance will be interesting.

1) Will the OLBs make a case they won't be the weak link of the Defense?
2) Can a 3rd running back separate themselves from the pack?
3) How will Quessenberry react to being thrown into the fire, and can Newton and Brooks show they'll hold the right side down?
4) Will Keo make strides as a starter on the backend of the defense?
5) Can one of the receivers without an "andre" in their name show anything that looks like consistency?
