Dolphins Throttle Jaguars 24-3 As Tannehill, Bush Thrive
- After weeks of boring offensive football, the Dolphins finally exhibited a bit of creativity via some cleverly designed plays. Jorvorskie Lane got open for a TD late in the second quarter on a well-designed play that had Tannehill fake on the read-option, leaving Lane for a short TD catch. The Dolphins also used the running game effectively to set up play-action downfield. Tannehill was great, utilizing his legs to move the ball downfield when necessary and finishing 22-of-28 for 220 yards and 2 TDs. His 79 percent completion percentage was best for his rookie campaign -- as were his 52 rushing yards on the afternoon. A stellar game all around for the kid.
- Reggie 'LaMontelle Pussyhammer' returned with a vengeance. Dude was nasty, especially on his 53 yard run in the third quarter as ass just flew into his closet voluntarily. Aside from that, it was the penile anger he ran with on nearly every touch. LaMontelle took on prospective tacklers with the vengeance of a guy that got too drunk on the first date to have sex - then actually got a chance to come back another night and make good on his penis.
- Brian Hartline achieved his first 1,000 yard season as an NFL receiver, which is something we might care about if it weren't for him being any other NFL team's No. 3 receiver at best (he only has ONE TD on the season) and the fact he resembles a chipmunk. Chipmunks aren't great football wide receivers, typically.
Ultimately, this was a big, fat 'W' on the Dolphins schedule since the start of the season. If Henne had gone nuts on the team we'd chalk it up to being SOOOOO Dolphins but since he didn't it's just an 'ooookay' win. The one positive takeaway was that Tannehill played very well against the NFL's No. 31-ranked defense. That felt nice.
But we will not know what this kid is all about until we put some REAL (i.e. not-Jeff-Ireland-selected) weapons around him. The Miami Dolphins next take on the Buffalo Bills at Sun Life Stadium this Sunday. Kickoff is at 1 p.m.
