Dolphins Pleased With Cutler Debut

It was a breath of fresh air to see Wentz throw a bomb to Smith because it's what the Eagles offense needs to win games.

But there's no excusing a nine-play, 93-yard drive late in the first quarter that ended with three plays swallowing up 43 yards, with three different factors at work. Same for Greg Ward and Shelton Gibson.

The Eagles had two extended, joint practices this week with Miami and during those sessions the first team offenses and first team defenses clashed for the majority of the time at the NovaCare Complex. The Dolphins allowed a total of seven pressures last night, and this hit on Cutler is something that may happen from time to time, but hopefully not with regularity.

It was great to do it here, to do it in front of the fans. The fans get really excited about that, so that was cool. I am going to do a summary of each team's fantasy prospects, in order from worst to first - based on South Point's rankings. "We don't play games that really mean much until September". He said he's been in Cincinnati spending time with his daughter and "swimming, eating, relaxing". "I think overall there are things we can clean up, but majority are schematics". That's why we practice extensively.

There are four preseason games (ridiculously too many, of course). But he was here with us previous year (as linebackers coach). Perhaps head coach Doug Pederson got a bit squeamish and elected to play Wentz for only a quarter. "So it's important that we're executing it".

The first preseason game was against the Green Bay Packers, which resulted in one decent play from Wentz, and the remainder of the game being handled by third string quarterback Matt McGloin.

Speaking of trends, the last time the Dolphins gave up 38 points in a preseason game was past year, a 41-14 loss to Dallas. The next time we see Wentz will be in Washington for the season opener.

Until then, it appears the intense competition at wide receiver will continue right down to the end.

Blount and the Philadelphia coaches continue to say they are not anxious about his slow development in Philly's run game. Alex McCalister, fighting for a roster spot, has recorded three quarterback sacks in the preseason.

"It's good to see all those guys".

Cutler didn't exactly hit Parker in stride, but he gave him a chance to get the ball down the field and use his size (6-foot-3) against the smaller Darby (5-foot-11). He was more relieved than excited to be able to play in the third.

"I don't know", he said. "When you're in the training room, you can't be evaluated". "It's still just a little bit sloppy and a little bit of not all being on the same page".

The Eagles, a franchise that hasn't won a title in almost 60 years - and say-it-with-me, has never won a Super Bowl - had almost 70,000 fans pay to see a glorified practice against the Bills last week, with another sellout expected tonight. Center Mike Pouncey, whose practice participation has been limited due to the hip injury that held him to five games last season, practiced against Philadelphia on Monday in a full-pads, full-contact practice.
