Morning take: Dolphins vs. Geno Smith

Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories Tuesday from around the web:

  • NFL.com takes a look at New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith against the Dolphins.

Morning take: Smith is in a big funk, which could be good news for the Dolphins. Miami will need turnovers on the road to win Sunday’s game.

  • Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post writes about the Dolphins' mediocre offense.

Morning take: There is nothing Miami’s offense does well. They don’t run, pass, block or score touchdowns with any consistency. The Dolphins’ offense is all-around average.

  • Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports rookie tailback Mike Gillislee needs to step up in Daniel Thomas’ absence.

Morning take: Thomas suffered a significant ankle injury that could sideline him for the rest of the season. Gillislee could get some opportunities behind starter Lamar Miller if Miami sticks with two tailbacks.

  • Omar Kelly of the Sun Sentinel says the Dolphins (5-6) are still in the hunt for the playoffs.

Morning take: The Dolphins are in the hunt, but they will not get in. Miami must go 4-1 the rest of the way, and this team hasn’t shown any signs it can be locked in down the stretch.
