Saturday Morning Update
-While it is good news that Dion Jordan is back practicing with the team it is very unlikely he plays in any game for the Dolphins this year.
-Mike Pouncey and Branden Albert are OUT for this Sunday's game and will not play. Laremy Tunsil is a game-time decision. The Dolphins need Tunsil out there badly. Do not think because San Fran only has 1 win they cannot win this game. Miami can lose this game and if Miami is playing a 3rd string left tackle along with back-up's at center and guard SF could throttle the Dolphins offense and keep this low scoring. If so SF will hang around and could easily win. Tunsil being on the field is key.
-The Dolphins will wear their Throwback Uniforms for the last time this year on Sunday vs San Francisco.
-Will be interesting to see if Baccari Rambo starts again at safety this week. Rambo has only been on the team a few weeks but last week already passed Michael Thomas on the depth chart and started vs the Rams. Thomas hasn't played well at safety this year.
-With Miami in the middle of a playoff chase as we enter December it's time for some scoreboard watching. Here is who you should be rooting for this Sunday..
-Carolina to beat Oakland
-Cincinnati to beat Baltimore
-Chicago to beat Tennessee
-Jacksonville to beat Buffalo
-Kansas City plays Denver--Doesn't matter who wins as they both have the same record and same conference record.
-With Jason Jones suspended for 2 weeks it will be interesting to see who takes his snaps going forward. Mario Williams has been limited in practice for weeks and I don't expect him to pick up much of the slack as he has been bad when he has played this year for the most part. The two names to keep an eye on are Leon Orr and Terence Fede. Also with Earl Mitchell back don't be shocked to see Suh kicked out to DE on some plays and the Fins go with Mitchell and Phillips at DT some this week and next.
