Tampa Bay Bucs Vs. Miami Dolphins: Postgame Analysis And Reaction

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Miami Dolphins began their 2012 NFL preseason on Friday night. Tampa Bay won 20-9, but the score is the least important stat and observation to take from a preseason game. Instead, evaluating new players, new styles of play and avoiding injuries are what matters in the preseason. SB Nation's team blogs analyzed last night's game between the Bucs and the Dolphins.

For the Buccaneers, fans had their eyes on their new head coach, and generally, came away impressed.

From Bucsnation:

Overall, though, this was a productive start to the Greg Schiano era. The Bucs walked away with their first win in 11 games, while the team looked more disciplined and composed. The Bucs had a gameplan and stuck to it, and managed to turn a few productive plays into a win and, more importantly, the players and the team as a whole played well.

On the Dolphins' side, quarterback Ryan Tannehill was the team's story of the night. From The Phinsider:

Then, Tannehill took over, playing the second and third periods. And, he did not disappoint. The eighth overall pick of the draft finished the game 14-for-21, for 167 yards, and a touchdown. He looked sharp. He looked poised. He looked good. It was the performance the Dolphins, and their fans, needed to see from Tannehill.
