Mularkey: Some discussions of moving Dolphins game to Nashville

The Dolphins have been keeping a close eye on the progress of Hurricane Matthew for a few days.

And while nothing has been decided yet, there’s at least some discussion of the Titans getting an extra home game out of the deal.

Via WBIR, Titans coach Mike Mularkey said one of the options for this week’s scheduled Titans visit to Miami is to play the game in Nashville.

“We’re watching the weather with the hurricane that’s going on down there,” Mularkey said on his radio show on 104.5 The Zone. “There may be some weather issues. There’s a very slight chance that game could be moved up here. There’s been some discussion because of it.”

Games have been moved because of weather or other issues before, but typically the NFL finds a neutral site rather than just giving the visitors another home game, as Buffalo has played in Detroit when blizzards hit Western New York.

    Tenn vs Miami; another low ratings game. Who cares when or where it’ll be played.

    sounds like a bunch of Mularkey..

  3. randomguy9999 says: Oct 5, 2016 8:09 AM

    ridiculous…. the worst forecasts put it 100 miles from the eye tommorrow midday which translates to about 35mh winds and a bunch of thunderstaorms that will be over by early Friday, then off the GA coast on Sunday

    100% chance of perfect weather at Dolphins stadium at game time

    unbelievable how everyone is freaking out about this one

    Should move the game to Candyland. These two teams are as soft as it gets!

  5. alonestartexan says: Oct 5, 2016 8:17 AM

    Mularkey isn’t overly bright. Play the game in New Orleans or Houston.

  6. wildbillesq says: Oct 5, 2016 8:28 AM

    Move the game to Nashville and give the phins some other compensation. Like being out of the London rotation for a few years…

    Unlikely. The hurricane will hit the area Thursday & Friday and be gone by game time. There’s a small possibility of the storm looping back around and hitting us a second time but even that shouldn’t happen until Tuesday or Wednesday of next week.

    Give Nashville an extra home game…..? Sounds like a bunch of “Mularkey” to me…….

  9. jchipwood says: Oct 5, 2016 8:41 AM

    They should do this. They should also give away free tickets to any Titans fans and not allow any Dolphin fans in the game. It would only make up for the Dolphins easy schedule they’ve had so far.

    Best thing on the field in Nissan Stadium this season has been Beyonce.

  11. TitanUp1999 says: Oct 5, 2016 8:50 AM

    Bring the game to Houston so I can attend back to back Titans games for the first time since 2009..😉

  12. maddenisfordorks says: Oct 5, 2016 8:51 AM

    I feel a bit bad for the Miami players … knowing that their homes and families/kids have to possibly get pummled by a category 4 hurricane while you go play football.

    If it were me … I’d stay back … put my grill in the garage, etc.

    Come to Detroit, we’d like to see a competitive game here, since our team can’t provide that.

    Want a neutral site? Move the game to St. Louis. They have an empty dome there with no games scheduled in it now.

  15. hillarystandswhenshepees says: Oct 5, 2016 8:58 AM

    Stay safe Miami folks!

  16. exinsidetrader says: Oct 5, 2016 9:00 AM

    Titans would still find a way to lose regardless of where played.

  17. maust1013 says: Oct 5, 2016 9:26 AM

    “Buffalo has played in Detroit when blizzards hit Western New York.”
    ________________

    They gave away tickets to that game against the Jets and still didn’t pack the house. Outside of Miami or TN for a Phins/Titans match up they would have to pay people to go

    More mularkey…

  19. yoyoherewego says: Oct 5, 2016 9:47 AM

    This is BS

  20. yoyoherewego says: Oct 5, 2016 9:48 AM

    We’ve already played 3 road games in the toughest stadiums in the NFL

  21. brendafortheboyz says: Oct 5, 2016 10:04 AM

    Safety first! If they have to move the game, so be it……

  22. chadsmith013 says: Oct 5, 2016 10:24 AM

    soft schedule?

    @ cincy
    @ new england
    @ seattle

  23. leatherface2012 says: Oct 5, 2016 10:57 AM

    OK… 2 DELAYS IN TAMPA… AND NOW THIS…JUST SHUT DOWN FLORIDA FOR SPORTS.. ITS AN ARMPIT ANYWAY

  24. jimmyjohns01 says: Oct 5, 2016 11:04 AM

    Let’s hope the NFL doesn’t notify fans the game moved 10 minutes prior to kickoff in Miami.

  25. tqaztec says: Oct 5, 2016 11:22 AM

    Mosquitoes love pools of still water.

  26. finchy74 says: Oct 5, 2016 11:31 AM

    Perhaps a televised game played during a hurricane would be a fix for the NFL’s tv ratings problem.

  27. 2manyconcussions says: Oct 5, 2016 11:45 AM

    Keep in mind that the accuracy of weather forecasts goes down by 60 percent when the forecast is greater than 24 hours. Given we are looking at a forecast that is three days away, there is significant room for change.

    As a result, the current projections are of modest value and we won’t really know the impact of the hurricane on the game until Saturday.

    You all forget the titans plane has to fly directly into that storm. If Miami International starts canceling flights Friday there is no way will there be a game in Miami. When Sandy hit New Jersey late Monday afternoon , Newark started canceling flights late Sunday night. I know because I was headed into NYC and my flight was canceled Sunday night. No joke being up there in this type of storm.

  30. bsizemore68 says: Oct 5, 2016 1:51 PM

    I think the answer will be obvious by Saturday morning, and the game will go on. As for 811..the home team cares, and if you don’t care about Tenn and Miami, why are you on this blog? Don’t answer, we all know why. Bill

  31. fishyinalittledishy says: Oct 5, 2016 2:55 PM

    Playing the game in a hurricane would probably help Tannehill accuracy lol. Do you guys actually have any wit. The guy was only joking about Miami soft Schedule. It’s called irony.

  32. 7ftgriff says: Oct 5, 2016 3:12 PM

    Why not play it in Atlanta?

  33. phishead1313 says: Oct 5, 2016 3:24 PM

    They wouldnt play it in Nashville. They would just move the game to Monday nite like they have done before during a Hurricane.

  34. RandyinRoxbury says: Oct 5, 2016 6:59 PM

    I’m praying for you Dolphins fans, while we tease and give each other a hard time on here, no one wishes anyone harm, football is just a game and no one’s live changes over a win or a loss.
    God Bless!

    How about the NFL start ponying up a bunch of money for the thousands of people that will be without a place to live?
