"I'm absolutely not afraid. And there is no panic."

As a fan it's hard to see anything positive when your team loses. I mean your team lost, what the heck is so positive about that?

But in an effort to bring some objectivity and perspective to the loss, here are some positives from Sunday's game against the Chiefs. As bad as the Dolphins looked there were some things to be excited about.

You have to be encouraged with the way Lamar Miller stepped up and answered the call. He ended up rushing for 108 yards on 15 carries and had 4 catches for 24 yards. I do not believe he had a single drop. And to piggy back on that, the offensive line has produced two 100 yard rushers in 3 games. Not too bad for a line that is missing its Pro Bowl center and has 5 new starters.

Mike Wallace continues to play well and play tough. He is one of the few players on the offense showing consistency in his game.

Jelani Jenkins is turning into a starting linebacker right before our eyes. He led the team in tackles on Sunday; had a forced fumble; and is second on the team in sacks. Just need a few more big plays out of him.

Jarvis Landry has been a great pick up for the Dolphins. He averaged 174 yards in kick returns on Sunday and is being given a lot more opportunities in the passing game. He's going to break one of those kick returns wide open very soon.

The team should bounce back from this loss when they head to London to play the 0-3 Raiders. The defense should have Koa Misi back from injury and we're all hoping to have Mike Pouncey snapping the ball on Sunday.

The season is still young guys. The Dolphins beat the Raiders on Sunday and they're back at .500 with a bye. To quote Coach Lazor, "I'm absolutely not afraid. And there is no panic."
