Separate names with a comma.
That is the first thing I noticed. I think Tannehill invited DCoordinators to blitz because he handled them so poorly. I hope Rosen takes this job...
This is the single most important thing the Dolphins need to assess over the course of 2019. You can miss at other positions, but if Flores wants...
I was curious why Rosen was considered a "difficult" person. Assuming this article is comprehensive and accurate most of what I see is a young man...
I am in no way inclined to call myself a talent evaluator. My approach has always been to read people I trust and shape my decisions from there....
I am more excited about this team, with a new coaching staff, a full complement of draft picks, and a plan to build the foundation than the last...
That is hideous. I don't live in Miami, but those of you that do, have you ever noticed anyone wearing last years monstrosity?
Proud Celtics fan. Lifer. Just like my Phins and Red Sox.
This is a good breakdown of the top 8 QB's in this years NFL Draft.
If you google Kaepernick Foundation you get 1.5 million hits. I scrolled through the first 3 or 4 pages, every article was positive and he was...
Please no 0-16. I hope we win one of our first few games so that stink stays away from the Phins.
If we use any capital for a QB, the FO must dedicate picks/money to fixing the O line. I don't have any idea if Josh Rosen can play QB in the NFL,...
I doubt Kaepernick is good enough to win 2 games, much less 5 or 6 (total conjecture). I just don't think our first-year head coach and newly...
I would be shocked, shocked I tell you:evil: if Miami stays on the same path that has led us to long term mediocrity. I have no idea if this guy...
True story. I got the sheetz from a Sheetz sub one time. Never again.
I don't think it's only on Fridays.:smile:
I will not argue that he has misused, but he did himself no favors by being unavailable to practice and play. I say good bye and good luck.
I have a crazy idea. Hire and promote the very best. Reward hard work and sacrifice. Pick the best, not the candidate who checks a certain...
He is exactly the kind of player Ross has signed during his tenure. I hope Ross has smartened up.
That just proves how far out of the loop my old *** has become.
Does that include their teacher's salary?
That was a ****ing trainwreck. No question Incognito is a douche, but an NFL locker room is a unique work environment and thus the usual rules are...
Average coaches run systems. If they catch lightning in a bottle, like a great (especially cheap) QB or get lucky in the draft, they are always...
Please, no Clay Matthews. He has a giant fork sticking out of his ***.
JJ is a 70.8 on PFF. He is rated as above average, (lower than very good), but he is still young and I have absolutely no faith in last year...
A Michigan guy pimping Wisconsin players, What has the world come to?
Damn you and your reasonable approach.
My son is a Lions fan, so I have watched more Lions centric video than most NFL fans. I like Caldwell. He might have that 1000 yard, never...
A life well lived.
Aren't you a...writer?:tongue2:
Good riddance. The "genius" whose only success was riding Manning's jock. He is arrogant and convinced he is the smartest guy in the room. I hate...
That is an impressive interview. Walsh was too smart for football. No wonder they were so damn good for so long.
I don't want McCarthy under any circumstances. Jim Harbaugh, if motivated and with Ozzy Newsome as GM put tough teams on the field every season. I...
I agree with everything you said EXCEPT I will be a Dolphin until I die. I can see giving up my NFL fandom. I could never root for another team.
The way the question is phrased makes no sense. You cannot vote better or worse, just absolutely or no chance. Am I missing something? I think our...
I am watching Indy/Hou. Their Def Coordinator should get an interview.
Gase has the EQ of a toddler. As a leader, in any organization, that is the kiss of death.
I would bet dollars to day old doughnuts that if he...
I respect Brent Grimes as a football player. He is undersized, and made it on grit and hard work. He was a really good corner for the Phins.
I wish Ross would leave this decision to Grier. If he runs the football side of things, let him hire someone he is comfortable working with. Ross...
Adam Gase is no Belly Check. He is more Cam Cameron, minus the sparkling personality.
Being injured is a legitimate reason to not produce. In my opinion, Parker lacks the competitive fire it takes to be successful in the NFL.
I don't think Bridgewater or Foles is the answer. I don't have any idea who will play QB for the Phins next year.
I agree with most of your ideas.
I am an old man. I have watched a lot of football in my life. I am in no way an expert, but I have a fair...
We are unorganized, unmotivated, and poorly coached.
The Dolphins do everything by half measure. They haven't learned that successful organizations have one vision from the owner to the guy mopping...
I think he is gone. Ross' box looked beyond uncomfortable.
Lock this thread. The 2018 season is mercifully over.
Can you imagine Belly Check doing that? He looked like an old man in the park feeding pigeons. I try to avoid "hot takes", but this ship is...
That is ****ing embaressing.
Lofton is a maroon.
I am watching Ravens v Chargers. Phillip Rivers is a probable Hall of Famer. He looks a lot like Tannehill with 5 guys in his face every snap.
I thought it was a joke when they signed a 35-year-old running back. I was wrong. Full respect. Hope the damage is minimal and Gore comes back...
You are a smart dude but I disagree about giving full control to any one man. That is just too much responsibility. I don't have the answer to fix...
This would not surprise me in the least.
I think Gase and RT17 are back.
I think Burke is back.
We draft a DT/DE in the first round.
We draft Will Grier from WVU in the second round.
So let me get this straight. Do you want to know what I want to happen?
I know Ross spends plenty of money, but there is something lacking in the people he hires to run this organization.
I appreciate your positive attitude. For the Phins to be a championship level team we have to beat teams that have a good defense/pressure the QB....
This is ****ing embarrassing.
156 yds of O. Half that on one play.
Just can't squeeze the trigger.
going for it.
Game. Set. Match.
A TD here pretty much ends it.
Well, that was ugly.
Need at least 3
Need a to
gotta hold them to a FG.
We cannot pick up blitz.
What a crazy game
I have an ex-wife that is the human manifestation of the first quarter.
3 and out !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This ****ing team. Indescribable.
After a miserable first quarter we bounced back. If the Phins can take the ball and score to start the third, we might just win this damn thing....
I will take 3, 7 would have been nice.
Drive and score boys we gotta game.
D stepping the **** up
Ha. Nice pick.
Tannehill in the pocket acts like my 18-year-old son talking to a pretty girl. He just forgets how to function. I don't think either one will ever...
I am not scared.
My neighbor is an alcoholic Vikings fan. If he knocks on my door one of us is taking an *** whipping.
**** **** ****
Jesus. Defense needs to compete.
Gotta score this time. Need 7.
Need a three and out. Can't fall behind by two scores.
Understood. my neighbor is a Vikings fan, will be nice to kick his drunk *** on Sunday.
I need to preface this by saying that I am old as dirt.
In the AFC East I still hate Buffalo and the Jets more than the Pats. I fully get that...
That looks like a (mild) high ankle sprain. Those are nasty. Criticize Tannehill for his shortcomings as a QB, but he is one tough SOB.
This has been a great game. RT17 needs to prove his mettle.
Is he our best player?
How much stock do you put in QB rating? Do you think playing for an exactly league average offense he is slightly above average? Do you have...
Well, well, well, that was a "dodged bullet" ending if I have ever seen one. If this Dolphins team is a cat, it better be real careful crossing...
I know that the best outcome for the long-term health of the Phins is to lose out and improve our draft position, but I can't help but root for...
The rollercoaster ride that is the Miami Dolphins.
I hate the ****ing Bills.
This sums up my attitude perfectly. I still sport my Phins hat, I come to this site to chat with Dolphin fans, but the team winning or losing just...
Why do I still ****ing care? It is never going to change. From ownership down to the guy who sweeps the floors, until they are all gone, this team...
We should let them score.
That was weak. I will never understand playing not to lose.
That is an oldtimers joke. He is a HOF mlb. (He was too slow to play safety).
I still think Zach should have played safety.:dolphin:
I just came to post the same info. Our Miami Dolphins, warts and all, control their own destiny.
I was going to post some in-depth statistical...
The peripheries of the NFL evolve. I still firmly believe if you can stop the run on defense and run the ball efficiently on offense you are going...
This is a great idea.
I cannot argue with anything you said.
It would take an act of god for the Dolphins to make the playoffs.
We all know the injury situation, I...
Our only chance is a defensive TD...(and a couple of fgs)
Come on man.
That was a clutch kick. A man short, 40+ yards, clock winding down. The ****s the bed on the kickoff. Well OK.
Does 6 fg win this thing?
So it seems.
You are WAY off. I had my brain mapped yesterday. Dummies.
This year just gets curiouser and curiouser.
Damn. One of the few bright spots this season. Speaking as a Celtics fan, I hope this doesn't affect his career ala Isaiah Thomas.
I don't get it...but I would really like to.:chuckle:
I stated this in another thread, but I think regardless of position, the best player plays.
The only exception might be a young QB.
I always want the best player to play. I don't care if you are an undrafted rookie, a big-time free agent, or an incumbent starter. That is the...
Damn. My son is a crazy Lions fan. I guess Wake will not be at full speed. Stafford rolls out to his right a lot.
I have heard "Theo Riddick"...
Is this true?
I have to take my son to work. Be back ASAP
that was a football play. ****ing bull****
wtf going for it on fourth ?
let's take the ball down the field and get 7.
Speed kills boys, speed kills.
Haack is inconsistent.
Swanson has been good
stiffen up d
Good football is beautiful
roll out nice
How much can he handle? 20 carries?
no jet sweeps, no roll outs come on
That ball was there. PI
good stop. made'm punt. let's score
Is that punt block reviewable?
Nice stop. Let's score!!!
O/T Is Jordan Phillips in the league?
This. Tannehill throws just as well on the move. Come on Gase!
big stop. let's drive down and score.
Not the worst opening drive.
Sorry my Phin fan brother, I bought that ticket earlier this afternoon. The good news is I will buy a suite at Hard Rock and you have a standing...
I agree with all of your points/complaints. The Phins looked flat from the kickoff. It is still just one game. We are 3-1. Time for the men to go...
I agree on cart before horse prognostications.
I disagree on how "tough" these next 5 opponents will be. We all know the Pats are not playing...
Galant coming strong with the numbers. Thanks.
Those are really impressive numbers.
Absolutely. Moving the wall that close was a mistake. Add in people/cameras and you are asking for a disaster.
Same thing in the NBA. I love the...
Jordan honestly slipped my mind. What a trainwreck that turned out to be.
I think the league is going more towards smaller, quicker players on both sides of the ball. The Raiders looked like big, slow, lumbering...
Total speculation, (would be a great username), but Josh Gordon did not look comfortable on the Pats sideline tonight. I would never wish relapse...
I haven't been here for a while. Are you always this negative or are you just a troll? I can't figure out why you would root for a team that you...
This is the roster Gase wanted. Young, hungry, fast, team-first players. The outsize ego's and locker room lawyers are gone. Let's see what this...
I agree. Every team is talented, coaches and players that fight to the end are successful more often than not.
Nice write up.
I know it's petty, but I despise media whore Gruden.
HaHaHa. Fun being a Phin fan
No quit. No ****ing quit.
Nothing man. Just a reverse and a 30 yard TD pass. No big deal
The LT bear hugged Quinn
Win or lose, there is no quit in this team.
the refs suck.
Like Gase or not, he makes the personnel decisions based on what he feels is best for the team, not what makes every individual happy.
I guess time will tell.
Longest game in NFL history?
11-5. Conference finals.
I wouldn't give him away, but rewarding the right players is important to your football team.
I doubt we could get a 3rd, but I would settle for...
1 year too late.
1. Dolphins Pick at 11.
Short-list: Vea, Fitzpatrick
Despised - Mayfield
It may have only been the RV but they owed 100,000 on it and only got 10,000 for it.
Not doubting the talent, but back injuries are tough.
The one constant in this decade of mediocrity has been one Steven Ross.
2. As much as it hurts, no.
3. **** no
5. Yes if elite potential. No if JAG.
6. As always, no.
7. I am not sold on either. Landry is...
I know this is unpopular. but I wonder where we would be if we signed Kaepernick instead of Cutler.
I wanted CK.
Great analysis. The fate of our beloved Dolphins rest on Tannehills shoulders. He should be approaching his peak over the length of this contract....
I was wrong about Johnni. I predicted he would never suit up in an NFL uniform after the Dolphin debacle. He did make it one more year. He made a...
That is some funny ****. Sexy is a perv.
This was the idea I was going to posit. Damn Bermudian.
Absolutely a great post. Harbaugh is the kind of coach who can be successful, but burns out his players with his over intense style. I truly...
My son is a crazy Lion's fan so I also watch a lot of their games. Their DLine has not played as well lately as they did earlier in the season....
why no challenge. That is 2 today that I think should have been looked at.
nice having playmakers on offense again
was there a flag on the kickoff
above all, I have never met a Jest's fan that didn't need punched in the mouth.
Unless you are a 49'er, (Aldon "Machine Gun" Smith).
Wilson had 300 yards passing and over 100 yards rushing against the Rams. I know they lost the game, but I would not lay that at the feet of their QB.
Damn Dude, negative much ? If you actually watched his career arc you would see that he has played behind an almost historically bad O-line, with...
I have been watching the NFL since 1970. I can not remember a referee helping a player off the ground. Am I wrong about that ? Is my Brady hatred...
Do the finsider's still have a post game show on the internet ? I cannot find it...and oh yeah, nice win mother#5&82RS
DJ summed it up perfectly. I just got a chance to watch the first half. I like the offense. It puts players with the ball in their hands and...
I love the Dolphins, but I have always been more of a basketball fan. The Celtics will always be my favorite team in any sport. The Red Sox are...
Do we know if the London game takes away one of our home games ?
That was genius, pure genius.
**** Jonathon Martin.
I wonder what his mommy thinks ? I agree he looks uncomfortable, I still think he never plays another snap in the NFL.
I'd still hit it.
I understand that emotions are running at 11 right now, but you cannot actually believe that.
Players making big plays is something that winning teams get every week. It is good players that are well coached put in a position to succeed. It...
Field's wife had a kid in the last 48 hours. Not making an excuse, but that would tend to interfere with preparation and concentration .
They are taking years off my life...but I love this team from the coaching staff to the last guy on the practice squad.
I've given the Martin value question a lot of thought . I don't think he ever plays another down in the NFL. I would rather eat the million...
I wonder how well we would be received on a Cheatriots board if we talked the kind of **** this guy is laying down ? Since people in that region...
That is exactly what I am worried about. This is gonna be a morality play, I am skipping the pregame and may have to mute Tirico/Chucky. If the...
I am guessing, but I would think that McKinnie will start at LT, and Martin goes back to RT. I hope this helps, I don't know how much worse it can...
I don't know how to say this without sounding like an aqua glasses wearing Tannehill fanboy,but I thought Tannehill threw the ball really well....
I have not watched enough...
A little O/T, I wonder how many teams would have beat the Saints last night ? Maybe the Pats ? Seattle ? Colts ? 9er's ? I don't think it is a...
a td drive here would be huge
finally a ****in hold
need a turnover
cannot take those kind of hits
D is strong
He did not get it
3 and out...yeah boys
I understand how effective it is and how it changes how the defense plays the run and pass, but I don't like the QB being exposed to those kind of...
I know I am in the minority but I hate seeing 17 run the read option.
1. I am not afraid of the ****ing aint's
2.Drew Brees is ugly
3. The ****ing aint's have not beat anyone
4. We are going to roll into that...
Man I love reading your articles. It gives me insight into the Dolphins that you cannot get anywhere else on the web. I wish the announcers would...
You are right, I take everything I see or hear on TV, radio and the intergoogle with a grain of salt. I thought when ESPN started it was gonna be...
I really like Wilson, Tannehill and Luck. I think all 3 are good leaders, good athletes, and have all of the physical skills it takes to lead a...
ESPN is gonna suck our ***** all week. We play on MNF. They are not a sports news reporting operation, they are an ad selling self promotion machine.
Add to the almost automatic touchback the fact we aren't getting guys hurt covering kicks, we are making the other team have a long field and we...
I read Simmons every week. Love his podcasts, and own both of his books. I did not mean to imply he was a stiff or an idiot, just that he is a...
Simmons hates the Dolphins. He is a good NBA writer, but he is not real knowledgeable about the NFL. It is nice to get props from the national...
I hate trading draft picks, and left tackle might be a slightly overrated position, but I just looked up Joe Thomas' contract status. He is signed...
1. I am not afraid of any team from Atlanta.
2. Ryan Tannehill will not be sacked today.
3. Matt Ryan is gonna get the **** beat out of him.
I wonder if Sherman has beat it into RT's head that he needs to be a pocket passer so much that RT will not run even given the opportunity. I am...
Thanks, I use the 506. I just did not notice the gray box/doubleheader correlation.
Yeah dude you are right. I thought because CBS had the doubleheader this past week that Fox would have it this week. Guess it's back to the stream.
I am not 100 % sure, but I think the Miami vs. Atlanta game should be the national game on Fox. That would be sweet for us non Directv/non Floridians
Make that 4, Randolph County born and bred. Living in SC, but thinking about going home and getting a job in the Marcellus Shale fields.
I love Philbin. The moment never seems too big. Joe Cool
I think we are better in part due to Philbin's improved game/clock management. I think he has a great chance to be a top drawer coach. His...
Sturgis is a ****ing pro
Need a turnover
1. I am not afraid the Dolts.
2. Andrew Luck is fugly.
3. Vontae is gonna bite on at least 3 double moves, 1 of them is gonna be a long TD...for...
Cam Wake and 10 clones would go undefeated. I am serious.
He has a nice stroke. It was his first regular season game but so far it looks like they made the right decision.
This is from memory, (and the late 70's and 1980's wreaked havoc on all parts of my body ), Tannehill was using more 7 step drops in the second...
I'll bet Brandon Weeden feels 30 years old tomorrow.
Those 3 or 4 deep throws made Cleveland back their safety's off the LOS further. These guys are competitive human beings. Part of being uber...
I think we should put it to a vote...Survivor style.
Phew...Glad we won. I don't know if Brown's DLine is that good or if our OLine is that bad. I know we are all Dolphin fan's but damn some of these...
Protection from the online is a beautiful thing
Pick!! Miami Ballhawks
I guarantee Brady/Manning/Rogers gets a roughing the passer on that play.
1. I am not afraid of the first 5 games, Cleveland sucks, we should have beat the Dolts last year, Atlanta is good, the Aint's had the worst...
Our first string outplayed or at least played even in every preseason game except the HOF game. I think Tannehill has a solid if not above average...
I think the pistol will yield the occasional big play, but I think the QB is gonna take a punch in the mouth every time they run it. It is one...
That is an impressive family tree. I love the fact that his name rarely gets mentioned, that is a compliment to an offensive lineman.
Ck did a write up on Davis. He said he excelled in redzone D because it took away his deep responsibilities and allows him to rely on his...
I like Aglar. Finsider's is great when you live 1000 miles from Miami.
Armando should be smarter than some random Internet troll.
The fact that he disrespected vets of all races on Memorial Day shows
Just how stupid...
The way the game is evolving, attacking the QB with fast athletes is the only way to control the pistol/spread.
I still float between both sites, but 99% of the info I use I glean from this site.
they are on next
Solid receiver, not dynamic with the ball in his hands, but he can play outside. I like the signing.
I am surprised that THills contract allows him to ski/snowboard. I am sure he is a good athlete, but a torn up knee is not what I want to read in...
As always, your work is top drawer. Thanks for giving Dolfan's everywhere access to your expertise.
I think Smith and Barkley go before we pick at 12. It would not surprise me if another team trades up to the bottom of the first to make it 3.
He and Russell Wilson are built totally different. Wilson is stocky, White is thin. I am a big WVU fan, but I hated us drafting Pat White....
I loved him at WVU. He just cant play at this level. I thought that hit you are referencing killed him.
I honestly thought he was dead.
I am no Draft Guru(tm) , but if at least 2 QB's, (Barkley and Smith), are not picked before 12 I will be surprised. Kiper and his ilk always...
I like the fact that at least two QB's are projected to go above our pick.
You never mail in a hot summer afternoon or a Friday before a long weekend ? I do.
Brandon Marshall is my least favorite player of all time. That play against the Jest's where he winged the ball across the field after he caught...
Philbin is so even keeled. I truly believe he is gonna lead us to at least one Super Bowl.
I believe there was a gentleman's agreement to not raid the Packer's staff.
Do you regret trading your pick and keeping Bradford ? If you draft well you should be able to fill a lot of holes with high round talent over...
It is nice to hear an outsiders perspective. Moore had his best games against poor competition, which is probably the way most average QB's...
Over payed possession receiver with bad hands and a worse attitude. Let him and his crazy wife go to Chicago. Good riddance.
I thought M+M were *******s. Ricky did not give them the standard "one game at a time, miss the guys in the locker room" speech, and they acted...
I am an old guy, a Dolfan since '71. I remember most if not all of our great players. Ricky is in my opinion the 2nd best player in Dolphin...
Someone that might be worth a look is Jason Campbell. With Palmer entrenched in Oakland, I doubt that they would put a tag on him. His numbers...
The way I understand Manning's contract is structured so that he gets his 28 million dollar bonus before the league year starts,(unless he agrees...
that was pi
I thought this was an interesting article. http://www.grantland.com/story/_/id/7160063/breaking-suck-luck-campaign
That sounds like a direct challenge to my manhood. Prepare to taste defeat. What do you think of the last week or so ? Strange days. I hope we...
That's why it is mockable
1. Brandon Pettigrew TE Okla.

2B. Clint Sintim OLB UVA
3. Brian Robiskie WR OSU
4.Fii Moala DT USC...
could not have happened to a nicer guy. warrior my a$$, sounds like he banged the wrong groupie.
why hasn't kaczur been suspended ? Ricky gets banned for herb, but this guy skates with oxcycontin ? Ricky should have been a narc.
