Quick thoughts from section 428....*BONUS* Help my fantasy team!!



First let me lead off by saying... these replacement refs really really suck. I have adopted a policy to boo them for every call that goes against us, no matter if it was a good call or not. Not only do they make bad interference calls, but they miss calling any of the new penalties to protect players. A few weeks ago they called Sean Smith on an interception because he was playing the ball(which he had as much right to as the WR), and this week I saw a few 'that were bad calls. How can you get a pass interference call if the WR hasn't gone 5 yards? Then with about 1:39 left a defender 'tries to take Fasano's head off. The real refs would have been all over that, and he would have been fined. With 0:24 there should have been a roughing the passer penalty. Instead they called holding on Jake Long.

Can we please get someone to catch the ball. I know it was wet out there. When they call it "showers" that wasn't really accurate. About 1 1/2 hrs before the game, we got one of the bands of Isaac that went through. It dropped a lot of rain, really quick. The point is, when you play in Florida, you have to be able to catch the ball when it is wet. We have one WR in Bess. Naanee looked like crap. We need someone else at WR. I would love to see us throw in Gates. He did well in the limited time he was in there, and he was the only one that kept the DBs honest. He may not be the best WR we have at this point, but given what we have, we have to do something different.

The run defense looked much better, but their 3rd down conversion ratio, must be really really bad. It seemed like we couldn't stop them on 3rd down for anything. Richard Marshall needs to go back to nickel corner.. You have made your point, and Vontae seems to be playing much better.

Well that sucks.... nevermind... I guess we are rebuilding this season...

Tannehill looked good. He was confident, and he was poised. We have our QB. None of our WRs were getting any separation. We just need to do whatever we can to get him someone besides Bess to catch the ball. Are we on the phone with teams yet?

On an unrelated note... my fantasy team had its draft while I was driving back from Miami. I tried to log on with my smartphone. Somehow I accidentally selected the Arizona Cardinals defense in the 3rd round. After that, I decided to let the auto-draft. My roster looks really really bad. It wound up drafting 2 defenses for me along with 2 kickers. A couple of my RBs are hurt. I am thinking of picking up a few Dolphins and other players I have seen in the preseason, but I have a long road to trek. My roster for a 12 person league:
