Falcons Vs. Dolphins Reaction: Wide Receiver Troubles Plague Dolphins

The Miami Dolphins lost to the Atlanta Falcons on Friday night, dropping the preseason game by a score of 23-6. The offense's anemic performance has to have Dolphins fans concerned, and the fans over at SB Nation's Dolphins blog The Phinsider know right where the trouble is:

The struggles with the team came in the passing game. Ryan Tannehill made some mistakes during the game, but he's a rookie. He's going to make rookie mistakes, but at other times, Tannehill looked solid. We are going to have to take the good with the bad for a little while with Tannehill, so patience is going to be the key with the rookie.

However, the wide receivers need to spend the next week doing nothing but Juggs machine work. At some point, someone not named Davone Bess has to make a catch. My biggest disappointment of this game was tight end Anthony Fasano, who surprisingly forgot how to catch. He clearly had a Tannehill touchdown pass, and dropped it in the endzone.
