(Thread) New #YardWork is out, but here are some findings from the All-22:
A) Yes. Two different playbooks. Tua ran the entire slate while Fitzpatrick ran empty, 2 x 2, 3 x 1, with wider splits. To be fair, the run game was less involved with Fitzy so that skews it a bit.
B) As far as Tua, and his processing, he had 2 misreads, 2 throws that were all on him. He was given two shot plays at inopportune times, and to be frank, it looked as if Marinelli was confusing Tua AND Gailey at times.
C) The offensive line was poor for the most part. Ereck Flowers had a bad start,and it just continued. Of the 3 sacks on Tua, on 2, Tua had no chance whatsoever. A third, Tua slid his way into a sack, when he actually had decent ass pro.
D) On the WR's, Isiah Ford worked really hard. Deserves snaps. He worked himself open often, breakdowns in other areas, or in the progression didn't find him. On Gesicki, teams have adjusted to Miami's Y-Iso use, and it's time for an adjustment.
E) The run game was good for the most part, save for a few Ahmed runs were he showed little patience and he ran himself into blockers. They completely blew blocks on two short 3rd down conversions. Tua should have kept it on another in a read option play.
F) On Defense, pressures were dialed up in a timely manner all night. AVG was unblockable, and a menace. Raiders started having answers, by picking spots against 4 man pressures, to slide Carr a bit, make him harder to find, and take shots downfield.
G) Waller was a problem, till he wasn't. Dolphins made a strong adjustment in the 3rd quarter, and it worked for the most part. The original plan of Rowe 1v1 and allow your pressure to get there, didn't work.
H) It's okay to appreciate other teams. This is the first instance in a while where I felt like Gruden and Marinelli had a better plan for Miami, than Miami had for the Raiders. Raiders had the coaching edge on that night. - @Alf_Arteaga

Here we go. In conjunction with Episode 1.8 of 3 Yards Per Carry, here are 35 detailed reasons why we should be more optimistic about the 2018 Dolphins as opposed to the 2017 Dolphins.
01. It is typical of teams that bounced DOWN the previous year (10-6 to 6-10) to bounce back UP the next year. Average bounce back is worth an extra win or two. Or three. Just the way it seems to work out.
02. Two division foes will be under tremendous pressure to play high caliber, high pick rookie QBs, both of whom are (and I hate this term but it's true) raw as hell. Potentially 3-4 games vs. rookies.
