Separate names with a comma.
Interesting pick up.
I thought of something worse, to be honest.
But, on the topic... I agree with Tin. While I think 6 is a great spot, I think Grier would be open...
Honestly, if I was Atlanta, I'd take Justin Fields without question. Matt Ryan is 35 years old. Even if he does play for three or even five more...
This really sucks man.
I know, to most people, his name is synonymous with The Dolphins and The U (and for dang good reason), but he was the man...
Never doubt Pat Riley.
It wouldn't be a bad signing.
At this point in time, all we can do it wait and see. On one hand, the timing of this is rather suspect. On the other hand, I always try not to be...
I don't think so. I think Carter is just the replacement Fullback. But, I could be wrong.
It's never a bad thing to get a good H-Back.
That'd be quite the reunion.
Somewhere, out there, Deshaun Watson is tossing his laptop out the window.
I imagine that a couple of DEs from The U are going to get a long look.
Definitely a high volume tackler.
The thing is, Sean Lee was on injured reserve until Halloween, played in 9 games, and only started two. Given those circumstances, 32 tackles is...
Well, yeah. But it's not the talent that's the main issue. It's the price.
As someone who is still firmly in the "Tua is going to turn out pretty...
Zach got hosed.
After that Stafford trade, any price for Watson would be to the moon.
I wouldn't mind getting Watson. While I'm still firmly on the Tua bandwagon, Watson is young and proven.
The problem is, we have a lot of...
Normally, you'd be right, considering that Houston is a so much of a joke that even J.J. Watt, of all people, wants out, I don't think there'll be...
I'd honestly rather draft a receiver.
Well, that's what happens when you get a vote of confidence from Peyton Manning.
First of all, I believe it's Flores and Grier are handling that. Second of all, as I said in another thread, no person in their right mind should...
I was about to laugh at the thought of Bill O'Brien. Then I looked up how well the Patriots did the one year he was the Offensive Coordinator.
Xavien Howard and Jason Sanders were selected for the first team, Jakeem...
Houston really is a dumpster fire. At this point, we could probably get Tunsil back for the low.
I'd sooner trust a snail to beat Usain Bolt in a footrace before I'd trust Adam Gase around Tua in any capacity.
I got all the respect in the world for Jay Fiedler, but... nah.
While I get what you're saying, that's not exactly the best example. As soon as Tannehill was traded, Vrabel made it perfectly clear that Mariotta...
I personally want Penei Sewell, but I'd be happy with Najee Harris.
Tua is still has a lot to learn. But, it's his first year. I'm not at the point where I think that a top five pick should be used on a QB.
Your definition of trash is rather weird.
The Miami Dolphins...
And without him, they no receivers worth talking about.
Because we all know The Texans are a great example of good decision making.
I honestly wouldn't mind having Stills back, but I don't think he and Flores are ready to make nice yet. As it is, it's a good signing for Buffalo.
So yeah.... that game... was painful.
It's almost like they're trying to give Miami a better pick.
Do we get an extra win for beating the refs?
These refs are straight trash.
It was a good showing. Glad to get a bounce back win.
Ben Volin is what happens when you're a Skip Bayless without a Shannon Sharpe in your life.
Hurts was never a bad QB at Alabama. The Eagles got a steal.
Wagyu? Like legit wagyu?
Tua has good taste.
MLB said Wednesday that it was "correcting a longtime...
And that's how you take advantage of a short field.
Miami got Mahomes acting unusual!
Van Noy was on one against the Bengals.
Same, bro. Same.
He was playing with a hurt foot, which was obviously effecting him because even the announcers noted it.
A. He's injured.
B. It's the Jets.
Xavien is just different.
"This guy's gonna get paid."
Yeah he is.
Looks like this upcoming draft is going to be offense focused. I don't see how we go the first three rounds without drafting a back.
Is it me, or is Needham playing better as of late?
I predict an Ogbah sack.
This is going to be a long game for Lock.
Just taking it one week at a time myself.
So, multiple players had a problem with the PR director being fired, but Stills get singled out because...
20 out of 28 Passes Completed, 248 Yards, 2 Touchdowns, 0 Interceptions, 7 Carries for 35 Yards, 122.3 Passer Rating.
Tua definitely did his thing. If he's improving at this rate, the team will be golden for years to come.
Tua is looking more and more comfortable.
Little by little, Tua is getting better.
I like that.
I don't think he played bad. I don't think he played good. He played like a rookie. Of course, he wasn't helped by some of the drops that...
Rowe... That guy's good.
Roberts is on one today.
This defense is eating!
Preston! What's going on with his hands?
Come on, Preston!
More pressure. More pressure!
I wasn't prepared for this savagery.
TD number 1.
Why is Wilkins so underrated?
Yeah, I'm would need at least a second round pick in return if I was in charge of trade. Yes, I know it's a pipedream, but considering how...
Lol. That's funny.
Gostkowski. Ain't. Crap!
Yeah. Sickle Cell Trait.
I think Trevor fears being a Jets QB more than other people at his moment.
To be fair, Ryan Clark had quite the playing career, even after having his gall bladder and spleen removed. So, I don't think he's a stranger to...
That last touchdown was nonchalant. Ryan Tannehill basically said "Here, have this."
Difference is, wrestling referees are supposed to suck.
I know you're being facetious... but I don't think you're wrong.
I find it funny how the LA sheriff is trying to call out LeBron for the value of lives when his own deputies leaked the details of Kobe Bryant's...
Now you can say it.
Can't say I'm surprised.
Thanks, but we don't know that yet.
...I don't see how anyone can say that when we haven't even seen him a pro game, but okay.
Hate to see him go. Wish him the best.
Better career than Brady Quinn's, that for sure.
And that answers my question.... How?
Yup. Protected by his peak athleticism with no lasting issues.
Let's assume that the percentage you provided was accurate.
If I poured you a drink and told you there was a 0.000000002% chance that it could...
And that's a reason not to take a seriously because...?
I can't say I blame them. I want to see the Dolphins in action as much as the next person, but COVID-19 is something that should be taken seriously.
Is it, though?
Get that money.
Wasn't he just joking, though?
Can't say I have. This seems like something rather new.
IMO, not having any members of the 72 team would be a huge oversight. Like, you make a huge case for Csonka, Morris, and Jake Scott (especially...
The only two people I can say for sure is Don Shula and Dan Marino. As for the other two spots? They have to be from the '72 for sure.
The only thing I could think of is if the poster graduated high school at a later age or if Ryan Tannehill graduated school at a younger age.
Would love to have him, but I highly doubt the Jets would trade him to the Phins.
Once again, 2020 is trash.
RIP, and condolences to his family.
Plus, if we're being honest, it's kinda hard to judge a full back when the quarterback is the leading rusher on your offense, and when your...
Well, Eric Reid is stiil around. I wouldn't mind signing him.
Our corners seem to be the strength of our defense so far.
Unless Logan Ryan is down with being a Dime Back, I doubt landing him would be feasible.
I can't wait to see him out on the field.
Oh, you can. It'd be unwise, but you can.
I'm really interested in seeing how the additions to our line is going to look.
Had this been coming from anyone else, I'd say you're too much into things.
Interesting choice of number.
Man, screw 2020.
Yeah, it's almost we have (or had, depending on how well Flores does - I'm optimistic on him) a record of making bad coaching hires.
It reminds me of when people made a huge deal about how Demarcus Ware was manhandling Jake Long during a Dolphins/Cowboys game... when Demarcus...
So it wasn't the longsnapping in and of itself. I was his tackling on Special Teams. Now it makes sense.
Overall, a decent draft.
My problem isn't the fact we drafted a longsnapper. My problem is that we done so when we already have one.
John Denney was already replaced during the LAST offseason by Taybor Pepper.
According to ESPN.com, yes.
...A longsnapper? Yeah, I'm not with this pick.
I'm surprised Weaver lasted this long.
No to mention that he averaged over 5.0 yards per carry last season and the season before.
I can live with that.
I liked her. It was just mad annoying when quite a few people had a problem with her for no sane reason.
Me myself? I'd like DT/NT Leki Fotu from Utah, S Marc-Antoine Dequoy from Montreal, TE Thaddeus Moss out of LSU, OLB Willie Gay, Jr. out of...
Another piece to the secondary. I like that.
To be fair, I don't think a lot of people predicted Burrow to have the season he did and for Tua to get hit with some injuries.
I expect to grab one safety and one pass rusher.
And the Miami Dolphins could make a pick so great that Jesus himself came down from the heavens, and you'd criticize the pick because Moses and...
Overall, I like our first round. Not feeling the last pick, but dude's athletic, so let's see how it goes.
Not feeling this pick, tbh.
I like this pick.
Here we go. I hope Tua doesn't get Brady Quinn'd
And here.... we... go.
Mel Kiper's Brady Quinn rant comes to mind.
I'm definitely group #2, albeit leaning towards Tua.
Assuming we get our QB with our next or last pick in the first round?
Tristan Wirfs. It's not a sexy pick, I know, but it fills a need.
If the price is right, they would. The only question is, what would be the right price.
Me personally? If I was The Bengals, I'd tell Miami to...
Still not a trade I'd make. We got too many holes to fill, and with only one team a threat to pick up Tua, if the worst case scenario is reaching...
The reason I don't want to trade up for Burrow is because I can't help but shake the feeling the Bengals are going to ask for a King's ransom.
Will he be splitting time at LB and FB like he did in New England?
I doubt it. We're still gonna need D-Linemen and safeties.
Source: The #Dolphins are getting #Cowboys FA CB Byron Jones. A massive deal for the now highest-paid corner.
Not a bad start so far.
That might be an understatement.
I'll be happy with Tua, but I wouldn't trade up for him, or any other QB.
As much as it pains me to say this, if I was Ryan, I'd hop onto the next plane to Foxborough.
If the trade makes sense, sure. But The Bengals have absolutely zero to put their pick for a price that's down the earth. Right now, they're in a...
Miami Dolphins assistant...
Herbert intrigues me. But I'm not sure I'd take him with the 5th pick.
Thing is, I don't know if he'd make it to 18.
*looks at 140+ pages in this thread*
....I'm pretty sure resnor is trolling.
Yeah, let me just say this.
If you're using ESPN's QBR to analyze a quarterback... Don't.
To be fair, he did his thing during the Senior Bowl.
Seems to be the story for quite a few players that leave here.
Whoa, whoa, let's not be quick with the Lamar Jackson slander. Everyone has a bad game every now and again.
Tannehill's a freakin' Chad.
Lamar Jackson is under duress!
....Nice throw, nice route.
Screw Tom Brady!
If the trade makes sense for Burrow, I say pull the trigger.
I beg to differ.
At least you're willing to admit that much.
Oh that's true. And he certainly could've done worse, especially given the circumstance of playing his first playoff game on the road against New...
Definitely wasn't Tannehill's best game. But, he didn't crumble, so props for that.
I just hope it's playoff jitters because he'll need to shake...
Kind of a stretch there, don't you think?
'EY! YOU STOP THAT RIGHT NOW!!!!
So, turns out, DeVante Parker finished 5th in the league in receiving yards and is tied for fourth (albeit with four others) in most TD...
Basically. At the time, a lot of people were saying that he was going to do loads better than Culpepper, and I (and some others) were like...
Heck, I went to bat for Henne, Feeley, and Beck.
I still hang my hat on being right about Trent Green, though.
I lean more towards Burrow than Tua, but I wouldn't mind the latter. But we really do need a QB in this draft.
Dang it, Xavien!
Funny thing was, according to the announcers (who, I must say, did a good job of actually explaining the whole "Tannehill used to be a wide...
Say it with me now....
SCREW THE PATRIOTS!!!
Your lips, God's ears.
I'll never rank Fitz in my top 10, but dang can he be fun to watch.
Never mind. A little to far to the left. Though that may be on Gesicki?
Just a little too far on that throw.
I'm starting to think the NFL is trying to brush this underneath the rug.
Honestly, you should've saw it coming.
IMO, I feel like Brees, Rodgers, and Brady aren't quite playing like themselves (especially Brady), and Tannehill is playing on par with Wilson,...
First two and the last? Sure. Wilson? Maybe. Jackson and Mahomes? I can't agree with that.
....Have you saw what happened in these past two games?
Going by your logic, no one would be talking about Tua if it wasn't for Nick Saban.
If it wasn't for Hurts, Tua wouldn't have two National Championships to his name.
You spelled Jalen Hurts wrong.
"Well, isn't this familiar..."
-Ryan Tannehill, probably.
The Knicks are still ain't crap.
Certainly not an unfounded concern.
I would, if our QB and RB situation improved to a point that they're at least serviceable. Granted, I'd still draft a QB for the future since he's 31.
To add to that, Brandon Marshall was a month or so before Tannehill was drafted.
And responded with the longest TD pass in his NFL career.
....Screw this game.
Not to compare sins, but I'm pretty sure pedophilia is a lot worse than dog fighting.
You love to see it.
Now, I know we won and all, but we gotta talk about the elephant in the room.
I think there's a possible QB controversy. Matt Haack finished the...
I think we can safely assume Devonte Parker is gonna with the Dolphins for a long while.
This aged very well.
An interesting read.
Well, that settles it.
I mean, it's not like the NFL would lie, right?
And the NFL wanted to distribute the footage of the workout and wouldn't allow his team to stream the workout.
The NFL really had the gall...
I'm not defending Myles Garrett. He deserves his punishment. But Rudolph needs to get suspended, too.
To be fair, our QB situation isn't ideal either. I wouldn't mind the singing.
Minkah did what he had to do. He was getting tired of being switched around, and I don't blame him.
No, Galant. It can't be that the diva narrative is being pushed. Why would Florida Sports Writers ever reach this hard for a story?
While Moore isn't a bad QB, I wouldn't even choose Moore over Tannehill in a contest to see who can write their last name quicker.
....Anyone else seeing this Houston vs. Miami game?
2-0 so far.
He's off to a good start so far.
I say we grab a QB, Safety, and a pass rusher.
Correlation doesn't equal causation.
I remember a few years back someone tried to use a list to justify not taking a QB in the first round, and...
You might be right. I can't imagine that Flores, given his coaching history, is cool with what's going on.
Well, here's the thing.
Do I believe the team - as in the players and coaches - are trying to win? Yes. But I also believe the organization did...
I mean, it's not like Fitz made it a hard choice.
This is easily the best we've looked so far.
Offensive line play has been downplayed for years. When Jake Long got released, people said we didn't need him or a proper replacement because...
I'm banking more on Steelers getting us another Top 5 pick than Houston.
He didn't quit in a game. He continued to play until he was traded.
Bravo to him, but that still doesn't make Minkah a bad person for what he did.
I'm not arguing against the notion he quit. But he has the right to take himself out of an unfavorable situation. If players want to ride it, then...
Says the person calling Minkah a baby and calling him coddled. But okay.
So basically anyone who leaves a job or a workplace that doesn't sit right with them is a baby, not a grown person who understands when something...
He's a baby because he doesn't want to sit through an engineered dumpster fire? Lol.
I know. I'm just sayin'.
Anybody who is on board for this after painting Minkah a "me-first" type of player really need to check themselves.
Don't worry. I'm sure Fitzpatrick will turn it all around next week. *scoffs*
To be fair, that probably wouldn't have done a lot better if Cam hadn't handed over the QB spot to Trent Green.
But, hey, who would have saw that...
Not that I want to defend this performance. But... how?
The front office quit on the season. If Minkah's a diva, then the FO is Moulin Rouge.
He could've made a sandwich, toasted and all, in the pockets he had.
If they have no desire to win, why would they want to be traded from a team that's tanking?
Nice footwork by Preston Williams.
All joking aside, I can get replacing Denney. He was getting up there in years, and he would have to be replaced eventually. But the timing is...
Denney?! DENNEY?! Nah, Flores has gone too far. Fire him!
How? They made the playoffs last year and they got a lot better from this trade.
Well, Texans just won the AFC South.
When I'm in a similar type of workplace as the NFL, then we can talk. But I'm not, so....
He has credentials in a lot of things - football is not one of them. And even then, his status doesn't change the fact that reaching out to the...
Except he wasn't being hypocritical or immature. He's questioning why Jay-Z is linking up with NFL on a social justice endeavor without reaching...
Just because you benefit from something doesn't mean you can't criticize it. I benefit a lot from living in the U.S., but I still have the right...
Only until recently were players out in the field standing for the anthem.
As for this, I got two things to say.
1. I really don't...
As other people pointed out, we draft tackles high but, with the exception of Samson Satele and Mike Pouncey, we don't go high for interior...
I'm personally torn on this.
On one hand, Fitz.
On the other hand, what does it say about Rosen if he can't at least hang with him?
It's used for playing cornhole.
Did someone get cut.
She's not wrong about Fitz.
I'm not sure how I feel about this.
Real recognizes real.
I'm happy people got his back.
This sucks, but his health comes first.
...We actually have Alonzo's son on the Summer League roster?
I think it's way too early to tell. While I feel positive about Grier, I felt that way about previous coaches. And so far, he hasn't quite been...
This made me chuckle.
Man, some of y'all must be great at parties
I wonder how Terminator in Gears will work out.
Good luck to him. Better to figure things out sooner than later.
I get that, and I'm not saying Reshad is a lock not to be moved. But moving McCain to safety doesn't seem like a good Plan B.
Nothing against McCain, but I doubt his move to safety is an indication of Jones being traded.
Arizona won three games. I know head-to-head records don't tell the whole story, but a 4 game difference is significant.
Counterpoint - Arizona.
It's a good thing I read the first post, because I seriously thought the Dolphins re-signed him. Thank goodness that wasn't the case.
Given Mariotta's injury history, Ryan Tannehill could be starting early.
So, potentially, the starting secondary could be Rowe, X. Howard, Jones, and Fitz.
Carrying 4 backs (5 including the Fullback) is not unheard of.
At this point, it's a low risk, high reward move. If he plays lights out? Sweet. We get a steal and probably use that first pick somewhere else....
It wasn't flashy, but it has potential.
Well, the QB competition will actually be interesting.
So we got a guard. We need a center now.
Thanks a lot, bro.
...And Metcalf is still on the board.
Lol. Cards think Grier is playing.
Metcalf is still on the board...
Lock or Haskins. That's all I ask.
"A good QB doesn't need an o-line" is the new "Aiming for a franchise QB in the 3rd round (or later) is viable strategy".
If it's just a third, then I can vibe with that trade. Still, it's a bit suspect that Arizona is willing to part with him so soon.
But that's definitely a night game uniform.
It's not bad.
I'm with it.
Could be a boon for us.
You mean the same team whose owner was arrested for visiting a massage parlor tied to a sex trafficking ring?
The Patriots organization is far...
I would take C.Kap over Ryan Fitzpatrick every day of the week, twice on Sunday, and ten times on February 29th.
....Wow. Just... Wow.
I wish Tannehill the best and still believe he'll make something out of himself as a starting QB in this league.
With that said, I seriously hope...
Probably the best spot for him - he has a good chance to start for them, whether via camp battle or the likely event of Mariotta getting injured.
Because they were.
Putting my feelings about Tannehill aside, assuming that we trade/cut Tannehill and he's replaced by Murray or whoever the FO...
I'm here for it.
Your lips, God' ears.
I love Rizzi, and I'd love for him to stay, but if you gotta get the bag, than you gotta get the bag.
...It's not that deep.
We'll have to see. Because even with injuries, Gase's ability to adjust is suspect, to say the least.
A. Parkey's kick was touched by a defender, as has already been pointed out. B. He was the reason why Chicago even had a chance to begin with.
I don't think it's a good idea to give a player a coordinator position right out of the gate. If anything, maybe have start off as a coaching...
I used to be a fan of him. But now... I just need this dude to simmer down a bit.
Interestingly, Kris Richard is a former Dolphin, having played in Miami back in 2005.
I know! I know!
I'd much rather Nick Saban a shot again, and I have a very negative opinion about Saban as is.
Indeed. That was crazy.
Sooo, can we talk about Cyborg getting knocked out.
Be a lot better than Burke.
A house of playing cards that was.
Except that wasn't what I was debating. You said that Ryan Tannehill was a coach-killer. And yet no one has come up with anything supporting that....
I expect a decent OC to do something with an offense of a team that has made the playoffs 5 out of the 6 years prior to his arrival.
I don't make excuses. I only point out factors that may effect a player.
Also, the Bengals' offense been sucking since the Steelers, way before...
So what are Philbin's and Lazor's excuses now?
Like I said, regardless how you feel about RT, it still means that these coach's are the victims of their own incompetence.
Okay, let's run with the argument that Ryan Tannehill is a coach killer.
During Ryan Tannehill's career, he's played under three different head...
People are still running with this?
In all honesty, unless he's willing to relinquish playcalling duties, Gase can go.
....You know? This isn't implausible.
Tannehill basically got sacked by his own offensive lineman. Like, how does an o-lineman does that?!
Throw the whole o-line away.
And yet they don't affect his mobility.
Have fun, guys.
Certainly a barbershop story if I ever saw one.
Also, Miami Dolphins are 5-1 in the AFC East.
Nice throw, two timely laterals, and a tight end playing safety on that play.
...Screw you, New England!
Oh my gosh!
I'd trust a financial plan from Bernie Madoff before I'd trust any injury news regarding New England.
No. Just no.
You mean the play where he threw a wobbly deep ball that only was only catchable because Clay open was more open than a mall on Black Friday?
Correlation =/= Causation, especially since Flacco wasn't even having a bad year to begin with.
I won't say all that. I do believe Lamar Jackson is capable of doing great things down the line. I'm just not gonna crown him just yet.
Not to downplay Jackson's performance, but Justin Tucker and Tavon Young are a huge reason behind that.
I'm thinking that a LB Corps who has two starters that essentially rookies and Kiki Alonso, who's inconsistent, added with a suspect Defensive...
I see what you did there.
He did very good, IMO. Granted, I'd like at least 100 more yards and a higher YPC, but 3 TDs to 1 INT with 67 percent (rounded) completion rate is...
A. He was hit on that throw.
B. Every QB throws would-be picks every week.
Lamar is basically being used as a running back under center. When he's actually quarterbacking, we'll talk.
If those two passes are enough for you to believe that, then there's nothing I can say. Good night, bro.
As much as I dislike Gase right now, I'm not gonna over look other areas of piss-poor performance.
And I'll just leave it that have. Have a good...
If we can't trust the coach's decision making, then why should we believe he was right for not having confidence in Tannehill?
....re-read what I just wrote. Carefully. Notice the word "should".
Stop what? Pointing out the reasons why we lost?
