Miami morning take: Dolphins more talent?
By James Walker
Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories Thursday from around the web:
Morning take: This year there is a case to be made for Miami, especially with New England's injuries. However, as long as the Patriots have Tom Brady at quarterback and Bill Belichick at head coach, New England will have big advantages in key areas.
- Dave Hyde of the Sun Sentinel says the Dolphins have more talent than the New England Patriots.
Morning take: Tannehill has outdueled some good quarterbacks this season, such as Ben Roethlisberger, Cam Newton and Andrew Luck. But Miami has lost to Brady seven straight times, and this will be the team’s biggest challenge.
- Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald takes a look at Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill facing Brady.
Morning take: Tannehill is a good athlete. He played wide receiver for two years at Texas A&M. But running the ball exposes Tannehill to taking hard hits outside the pocket.
- Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post writes that Tannehill running, if used in moderation, can be dangerous.
Morning take: Miami already is 2-0 in December with back-to-back road wins over the New York Jets and Pittsburgh Steelers. Another big win over New England Sunday would be a good run.
