Observation Deck: Miami Dolphins

Observation Deck: Miami Dolphins
observation-deck-miami-dolphins
The big story going into Friday's preseason opener for the Miami Dolphins was the debut of Bill Lazor's offense. The Dolphins http://www.nbashoponline.us.com/nba-jerseys/los-angeles-lakers/kobe-bryant-jersey_c-927.html hired Lazor this offseason from the Philadelphia Eagles to improve Miami's 27th-ranked offense. It turns out Lazor's offense got off to a nice start. The Dolphins, led by third-year quarterback Ryan Tannehill, easily marched down the field for a 73-yard touchdown drive to highlight their 16-10 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. Tannehill was 6-for-6 passing for 62 yards and a touchdown on the first drive. His passer rating was 149.3 and he couldn't have had a better start. Miami's coaches pulled Tannehill after his stellar first drive, which surely will build confidence. Tannehill and Lazor are perhaps the biggest keys to getting Miami over the hump this season. Here are some other thoughts on the Dolphins' first preseason game of the year: For an offense to have a successful scoring drive, the line must be effective. Miami's first-team offensive line, with five new starters, held up well on the opening drive. Tannehill was not sacked on the 10-play drive. New center Samson Satele got the start after just three practices and held his own. Friday was a very small sample size for Miami's first-team offensive line, but it was promising. Miami's first-team defense didn't get off to an impressive start. Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan carved up Miami's defense by going 7-for-7 for 53 yards on the Falcons' touchdown drive. The Dolphins struggled with tackling and penalties on the drive, which was an issue at times for Miami's defense last season. This is an area where the Dolphins must improve. Dolphins rookie receiver Jarvis Landry Authentic NBA Basketball Jerseys has been the talk of training camp. Landry also flashed in Friday's exhibition opener with a 48-yard punt return to set up a second-quarter field goal. Landry also had a 26-yard kickoff return. The rookie is competing with return specialist Marcus Thigpen for both spots on special teams as well as the slot receiver position. Another player who showed up well was 2013 third-round cornerback Will Davis. Atlanta backup quarterback T.J. Yates tested Davis often but without a lot of success. Davis had three passes defended in the game. Davis is competing to be Miami's third cornerback behind starters Brent Grimes and Cortland Finnegan. The Dolphins played second-year defensive end Dion Jordan a lot in this preseason opener. Jordan is in an interesting situation because he must serve a four-game suspension to start the regular season for violating the NFL's policy on performance enhancing substances. The Dolphins played Jordan in the first three quarters with the first team and the backups. He finished with one tackle. Miami is trying to get Jordan enough reps that he will be ready after his suspension is over at the end of September. Kind of a weird practice for the Lions on Friday as it was a hybrid of what Jim Caldwell said he tries to accomplish on Fridays and Saturdays. So the length was a bit longer than a typical walk-through, but players weren't in pads, there was no hitting and most things were done at a speed much slower than what anyone will see Saturday night. This is all pretty typical and a sign that actual football is close to happening for the 2014 season in Detroit. It was also the first practice of the season not open to either season-ticket holders or some portion of the general fan base, so an overall The better news for Detroit is the return of Eric Ebron and Calvin Johnson to practice Friday. Since Johnson missed Thursday as an excused absence, it wasn't too surprising to see him back on the field Friday. Ebron's return to the walk-through gives a little larger window to his potential debut Saturday night, but it'll still be a tricky call for Caldwell on http://www.nflgiantsofficialonline.com/GIANTS-PEYTON-HILLIS-JERSEY how much to use him, depending on what his undisclosed injury was. Unlike a veteran such as Johnson, Ebron could use the work to familiarize himself with the offense and the pace of the NFL as a rookie. Joique Bell missed Friday's practice for "personal reasons," per Caldwell. An area of concern for Detroit at this point might be Ezekiel Ansah. It would be stunning if Ansah played Saturday night considering he is still on the active physically unable to perform list, and days of practice to get him up to speed both physically and mentally with the new defensive scheme are starting to dwindle. The positive for Ansah is he keeps working on the side with athletic trainers and appears to be moving well when he does this, but until he is medically cleared and practices for a few days with his teammates, it's unclear how far behind he may be. He is a critical part of Detroit's defense this fall as he is expected to occupy the open defensive end spot that will have many pass rushing responsibilities. It is where Ansah thrived his rookie season, but at some point the Lions need to see him on the field. Caldwell discussed the backup quarterback situation earlier this week and it sounds like there are no minds made up on the No. 3 quarterback slot -- or whether the Lions will carry three quarterbacks at all. At this point, if the team kept three on the 53-man roster, that third quarterback would almost definitely be Kellen Moore, but unless things change drastically, he won't be the No. 2 quarterback. James Franklin is still a major question mark, but from the limited amount he has shown, he is a long way from contributing to an NFL team. At this point, his best shot of sticking would be if the Lions kept two quarterbacks (Matthew Stafford and Dan Orlovsky) and keeping him as a major Eric Decker Authentic Jersey developmental project on the practice squad. It'll be interesting to see what happens during preseason games, though, where he should get some snaps. The Lions don't practice again until Monday -- playing Cleveland in the preseason opener Saturday before an off day Sunday.
