    RE: Thoughts on the game.

    I think Carolina obviously deserved to win the game. They played better than we did. We had an eight point lead in the fourth quarter. They made more plays. I told the team, a lot of games in the NFL are decided in the fourth quarter. They certainly made a lot of plays in the fourth quarter. Certainly I made a bad decision in throwing the challenge flag early in the game. There is no other person to blame than me. It was disappointing. We had an eight point lead and we let it slip away.

    RE: On whether his starters are ready for the season.

    They have done some good things. Our defense ended up having a few more snaps than we had planned because of how the drive unfolded there. I think that was a positive. Obviously they made the stand at the end, and that was good too. So, I think they did some good things both sides of the ball. There were some good things out there.

    RE: On his concerns with Jason Fox.

    We will see, we will take it a day at a time, but we will see where our options are at.

    RE: Thoughts on challenge flag.

    I already told you, It was a bad decision. I had the red flag, and I threw it. Pretty simple. Thatís it.

    RE: On running game Michael James looked good in pregame.

    He ran the ball hard. He looked like he did a better job in the return game and ran the football hard. He ran quickly in pregame and carried on into the game. I think Lamar has been solid; I like how Damien has contributed. I think in second half there was too much penetration no consistency running in the second half.

    RE: Turnover margin.

    I see the guys, when studying the tape, I see them working on technique attempting to strip and club and punch the ball loose. Obviously we would love to get some sack fumbles thrown in there, a couple more picks. But I do see us working on the technique we just have to have faith, and continue to work on it, stress it, and opportunities will present themselves and we will make those plays.

    RE: On goal line stand

    Oh that was great. Again, I donít know how long of a drive it was in term of amount of plays, but I think it was good for our defense who hadnít been on the field in a long time yet, during the course of the season, so to step up there at the end was awesome.

    RE: On kicking situation I thought both guys did better.

    I thought they hit the ball better. Sitting there watching the ball come of their foot I thought both guys did some positive things.

    RE: On Tannehill I think he has had a good camp.

    Youíve been to a lot of those practices, and I think he is throwing the ball well and is making good decisions. He hasnít put the ball in harmís way very much. I think he is doing well.

    RE: On whether he is concerned on depth in closing out the game.

    I mean not necessarily. We obviously have to do a better job in closing out the second half. We had a couple interceptions again, and we canít throw interceptions. We had two this week, a bunch of give a ways last week. Itís hard to win games in the regular season, preseason, it doesnít matter when you give the ball away.

    RE: On his concerns with the injuries.

    Yeah well you never like that game. Sometimes you learn more the day after. We will have to see how it looks tomorrow when he comes in. You hate to see guys get hurt, because these guys are working their tail off. Unfortunately, thatís part of football and we have to deal with it.

    RE: On who will replace Jason Fox.

    I mean, we are going to have to keep all of our options open and we will have to see where we are at the end of the week as practices unfold this week. We will have to see who is available and who we feel is best answer at that position.

    RE: Whether Damien Williams is ready to step in.

    He has done well. He has practiced well; he has done well on special teams. Yeah, I like what he is doing.

    RE: Thoughts on readiness of team right now after second game in preseason.

    Again, I donít think we have played a complete game in the preseason, we have to do better. We have to do a better job on offense holding on to the football. We have done some positive things. We will take a look at the film, and get a better hand on it.

    Starters Dominate Again

    For the second straight week the Miami Dolphins starters turned in a solid performance. The Dolphins outplayed the Carolina Panthers on all sides of the ball. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill had another solid performance, completing 10 of 12 passes for 102 yards and a touchdown pass to running back Damien Williams. Running backs Lamar Miller and Williams both had impressive showings, For the second straight game Miller had a big time play that helped the offense move the ball down the field.

    The Defensive starters once again held their own, denying the Panthers a touchdown on a unbreakable goal line stand. Corner back Jamar Taylor had a 27 yard interception which was the play of the game. Taylor later suffered a quad injury and was sidelined, results of the injury of yet to be released. Reshad Jones was all over the field tonight making big plays, he seems to be set for a breakout role on the defense this season.

    For the second straight week the Dolphins reserves were dismal at best, blowing another second half lead. Matt Hazel, La Michael James and Gerrell Robinson all put in good showings as they try to find spots on the final roster. The Dolphins head back home this week for the preseason home opener at newly renovated Sun Life Stadium. Expect the starters to play into the second half of probably their final action of the preseason for the most part. They will play the Atlanta Falcons on Saturday at 7pm.

    Following a two day joint practice with the Carolina Panthers, the Dolphins are set to take on Cam Newton and the Panthers in Carolina this Saturday.

    Heartbreakingly for Carolina, Kelvin Benjamin tore his ACL during the joint practice and will be out for the rest of the season. This will be a good test for the young receivers on their squad as they'll be facing off against a what is presumed to be a very good defense this year.

    Miami is also looking to showcase their receiving core with new additions Greg Jennings, Kenny Stills and new tight end Jordan Cameron. While we saw Tannehill driving down the field like a true franchise QB last week, expect a tougher task when he goes out on the field this week with Luke Kuechly commanding the Carolina defense and improved cornerback Josh Norman challenging our receivers. This week will finally be a chance to see our offensive line be put to the test against a solid defensive front with leaders Star Lotulelei (if he is active) and Charles Johnson.

    Miami's defense will be tested as well with the loss of Louis Delmas with another torn ACL. Saturday will also be a very big night for 2nd year Safety Walt Aikens. These next 3 weeks will be very important for Aikens and Jones while they get used to playing across from each other.

    As always join the discussion on the forums with fellow Dolphins fans.
