Falcons Vs. Dolphins Reaction: Miami Wide Receivers Big Losers

The Miami Dolphins wide receiving corps did Ryan Tannehill no favors in the exhibition loss to the Atlanta Falcons 23-6.

As The Phinsider points out, Tannehill didn't have much of a chance to shine as the Dolphins receivers dropped four guaranteed Tannehill completions in the loss -- three of them from Anthony Fasano including a potential touchdown. The Dolphins dropped a total of seven passes in against the Falcons. The only reliable hands came from Davone Bess who finished the night with four receptions for 59 yards.

If the Dolphins are going to win games this year - and if they are going to develop Tannehill at all - the team has to figure out how to catch. The Dolphins may be reaching the point where they have to make a move, otherwise things could get ugly really fast.

It may seem drastic, but it is an opinion shared throughout quite a bit of the Dolphins community. The Dolphins receiving corps has seen such little improvement that it might be time for some fresh blood to try and jumpstart the final two weeks of preseason.

Two weeks to turn things around. For a receiver corps -- tight ends included -- that has shown practically zero improvement this preseason, the only way we see a turnaround is if we see a fresh set of players.
