In the latest episode of SBNation’s Phinsider Radio: The Jake and Josh Show, Jake Mendel and I recap the Miami Dolphins’ 13-15 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders. We then examine everything we learned from day one of joint practice with the Philadelphia Eagles, and we try to answer the $10-million question, “what should the Dolphins do with tight end Mike Gesicki?” All of this and more on the latest episode of Phinsder Radio!
NEW @thephinsider radio @jmendel94 & i are back to recap the #dolphins 13-15 loss to the raiders ☠️, joint practice with the eagles , QB1+ & what’s next for TE mike gesciki⏳#finsup— josh houtz (@houtz) August 25, 2022
First, Jake and I break down the first (and only) day of the Dolphins’ joint practices with the Eagles. And the verdict was simple, Miami’s offense dominated Philadelphia’s defense. Miami’s defense also won the day over the Eagles’ offense, which wasn’t impressive according to onlookers. The one player that was impressive, however, was veteran wide receiver Tyreek Hill.
Here’s what NFL Network’s Cameron Wolfe said about Miami’s speedy wide receiver.
Tyreek Hill has been showing why he’s different all day today. Running wide open thru Philly secondary. Been a v strong day for Hill and Tua Tagovailoa so far. At least 4-5 connections of 10+ yards in team drills today. Tua has been precise with anticipation & timing.— Cameron Wolfe (@CameronWolfe) August 24, 2022
Next, we recap Miami’s 13-15 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders. How good did rookie wide receiver Erik Ezukanma look? Is the Dolphins’ defense being overlooked as week one approaches? How did Mike McDaniel’s offense look with more of the playbook being exposed? Should Skylar Thompson get a chance to leapfrog Teddy Bridgewater for QB2?
Lastly, we talk defensive line, how Miami’s running backs have looked, Liam Eichenberg, and of course, QB1 Tua Tagovailoa.
What were your main takeaways from the Dolphins’ 13-15 loss to the Raiders on Saturday?
