Separate names with a comma.
Not me. Having an easy schedule is a great way to get home field advantage and a bye.
I wouldn't be making this judgement from one preseason game. But if he's worth keeping, then trade Teddy or keep a third QB.
We're skipping a game then?
Who gives a damn what he would "accept?"
Never liked him. Won't miss him.
That would be particularly stupid IMHO.
So much for having two first-rounders to play with next year.
Ross was also suspended until October, but I don't really give a damn about that.
For tampering with Tom Brady and Sean Payton.
Forever, I hope.
If Watson is suspended a whole season, that'll be TWO years without playing. He's going to be rusty as hell.
That's about useless. Tyreek was talking about HIS experience with Tua, not some statistical data based on his whole career.
I've always kind of rooted for the Browns ever since the league effed them over by allowing the team to move to Baltimore, THEN effed them over...
PFF has always been mostly BS.
God knows somebody should.
Intents and purposes.
According to the schedule guy for the NFL, teams have some choice in such matters and the Dolphins requested both west coast games be back to back.
Yeah, I don't agree with that.
Pure talent isn't everything. The Bengals used to have buttloads of talent but poor coaching and poor discipline and lost a lot of games they...
You're way too pessimistic. I am not a rose-colored-glasses kind of guy, but barring really key injuries, I think this team can make 10 wins with...
Why the hell would we lose to Pittsburgh with Mitchell Trubisky at QB?
Lamar Jackson is not an elite QB.
Oh, I'm already hearing it from people on this board. Like ANY 7th round pick matters.
It would be awesome but we'd wind up spending way too great a percentage of our cap space on WRs. Especially when we extend Waddle.
He's from Hawaii...of course he can swim.
Why? It was just a bunch of Jets, Bills and Pats' fans talking crap.
I love Polynesian food. ;-)
Bruschi is a moron. If defenders could "just tackle" Tyreek Hill every time he took a quick slant, he wouldn't have just become the highest paid...
If McDaniels isn't a good coach, then the fact he's a rookie coach isn't the relevant factor, the fact that he's not a good coach is. Which would...
Rookie head coaches have had some very good first seasons. It's not an excuse.
I was just going on an earlier report from before they released his identity.
From what I've heard, he got into a car accident on the interstate near Ft Lauderdale and when he got out of his car, a truck hit him.
The OSU QB who was on the Steeler roster was hit by a car in South Florida.
Report: Pittsburgh Steelers QB Dwayne Haskins Dead At 24 – CBS...
I don't like trading him in the division.
Very glad to see Howard resigned. Now just give Gesicki a deal.
Just in case anyone is worried this is another April Fools...
Xavien Howard, Dolphins agree to five-year extension with $50.69M in new money...
He even put it in the lower right corner. :smile:
Todd Bowles is taking over.
The owner hires a GM who hires coaches and they pick the talent. Just sayin.
If an asteroid hits and the world ends, then what? It's just about as likely.
Same owner, though. Just saying.
Since that's what got Flores fired, I hope you're wrong.
Uggh. Looks horrible.
I don't think Tua has that in him. This is going to have to be a team thing, where our scheme and our skill-position players run rings around...
I think you can put at least some of the blame on the coaching in that game.
I disagree on both those counts. Brady can win with any WRs and basically no good WRs. He's accurate enough, all they need to be able to do is...
As long as they don't trade Gesicki or Howard. They do either of those and I'll be pissed.
Look, the fact is, Tua WILL be our QB this season, barring injury, in which case it's going to be Bridgewater. They're not getting rid of him...
I'd never say never, but IMHO, there's no way in hell Brady would play anywhere but Tampa Bay this season. If I'm wrong, I'm wrong, but I think...
Which would be much easier to accept if the guy taken RIGHT AFTER TUA in the same draft, who was preferred by a lot of fans and apparently, by...
"Tua Truther" may be the stupidest phrase I've ever heard.
Our offense is going to have a whole new scheme so I don't know how you can honestly say this.
He's better looking. That has to count for something. ;-)
At this point, I'd take that over what we've been doing.
In that case, 10-7 and just miss the playoffs.
I'm at the point where I don't even give a damn about contract numbers anymore. Before the season, the Saints were supposed to be like $30...
Can I change my prediction now that we have Hill?
I like this move, but it worries me. I have a feeling that this means we're going to trade someone we shouldn't trade, like Xavien Howard, to get...
It's a good signing, but I still wonder what we're going to do at RT.
I think he'll get hurt and miss at least one game and Bridgewater will start that game and win, causing a QB controversy.
We weren't going to make the playoffs either way.
Given history, he probably is.
John Clayton died at 67.

The Browns being the Browns again...
Well, guess the Falcon fans won't get the chance to cheer for the creep unless the Browns come to town...
Watson will fit right in there in Atlanta. What a clown show.
Wow, didn't see that one coming. Definitely an improvement over Brissett. Maybe we could actually win a game with him behind center.
ESPN on Twitter: "Breaking: Tom Brady announced he is coming back for his 23rd season and will play for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers....
Well, as a former SCUBA diver, I gotta say, it does do you good if you really have to pee and don't want to get back on the boat and get out of...
Thank God, at least about not wanting Watson. This team already has a tarnished reputation.
Without the threat to run, I don't think Lamar Jackson is a starting NFL QB. He's just not accurate enough.
I remember that game very well. Went to Epcot that night for NYE and had the best time ever.
I hope our priority is O line. If not, we haven't learned a damned thing.
No one cares about that. They had a better record and they made the playoffs.
It's very simple. Everyone expected NE to bomb. They made the playoffs and nearly won the division. We didn't.
Yes, I suppose nowadays, disagreeing with someone's politics automatically means they're evil.
I've heard McDaniel is bringing in Wes Welker to the coaching staff.
A reporter said he spoke with someone who said he was a witness. I'd be more impressed if I knew who the witness was.
Since 2014? That seems like an artificially arbitrary cut-off date. Who have we had as QB since 2014? Ryan Tannehill and a cast of losers.
I doubt Flores has anything and I VERY much doubt Ross is going to be forced to sell the team. I wish he would just go ahead and sell it to be...
If Ross did it in front of witnesses or put it in writing, he's too stupid to breathe, much less own an NFL team. I doubt he did, though.
No, I don't have to stop and I'm not going to. And if Ross was stupid enough to put the directive to lose in writing, he deserves what he gets....
That's a kind of racism you can't stop by regulations, though.
Unless Ross was stupid enough to put it in writing, I think the owners will sweep it under the rug.
That's been happening ever since it was instituted.
There's no way the owners will force out one of their own. The most they'll do is take away a couple first-round picks, which will hurt the team...
If Flores had done as the team's owner, his employer, instructed him, it wouldn't have been an issue.
I don't give a damn about the Giants, but Ross was doing the correct thing. We desperately needed Joe Burrow. The guy is a once-in-a-generation...
A lot of the throws Mahomes made, Tua could have made, but for two things: we have no receivers who could turn those catches into huge gains and...
Allen always had the physical tools and the arm. He just needed to develop the decision-making. Tua has the decision-making, but he's never...
Holy crap, what a game this is! I'd kill to have Allen or Mahomes as our QB.
Where was this defensive player when we let the Raiders score 31 points on us? Or the Bucs score 45? When did his career become all that great?...
Burrow, Mahomes and Allen--all the best QBs left are in the AFC.
I don't care about the Rams or the 49ers at the best of times.
I just can't imagine that kind of thinking, honestly. They're two of the best quarterbacks to ever play and I can't see not wanting to watch them...
Well, now I officially don't give a crap about the NFC Championship game. We could have had Rodgers vs Brady. Now we have freaking Stafford...
And 0-2. Good thing I don't bet money on this.
I'm rooting for the Packers.
Oof. 0-1 so far for me.
At this point, does it really matter who the coach is? All that matters is who the owner is.
Uggh, the Cards are killing my perfect weekend. Dammit.
If the Rams beat the Cards, I will be very torn who to pick, since LA has had the Bucs' number the last few times they've played. I think KC...
Be nice to get Kenny Pickett but that won't happen.
They usually come from teams where they didn't have a great line or a great running game or a great defense, where they were clearly the best...
Um, sorry? I believe all my picks have come through so far. Still got a game tomorrow of course.
I know they don't come from Ohio State or Alabama. The last good Alabama QB was Ken Stabler.
1. Who cares? We screw up our high picks anyway.
2. Not going to happen. SF would lose to the Chiefs, the Titan or the Bills.
Have you learned nothing about not picking Ohio State and Alabama QBs yet?
I'm trying not to think about how they smuggled that into the stadium...
Did anyone catch the dildo the Bills fans threw into the end zone when the Pats scored their first touchdown?
I expected it. The Pats have gone down by huge score differentials in their last three games of the season.
If their intent is to draft a new QB in 2023, they might decide to trade whatever they can for picks, just like in 2019.
The question isn't whether Tua can be a workable QB with the right talent around him, the question is whether we should keep trying to get a...
AFC Championship: Bills at the Chiefs
NFL Championship: Bucs at the Packers
Superbowl: Bucs vs Chiefs 2.0
Yeah, I have to agree. Given how poorly Brissett played, the injury to Tua was significant.
Wannstedt, as you mentioned, had our last back-to-back winning seasons. But Wannstedt was NOT a good coach. He was mediocre. He got us to...
Shula would shout back and Dan wouldn't back down and they'd go play anyway.
Have you been drafted in the first round and paid millions of dollars to be the face of an NFL team?
I HAVE played organized football. I've...
Flores doesn't have the right to expect to not get talked back to.
I bet he did. Marino was a cocky SOB.
Because Marino never talked back to Shula?
I think keeping Grier is a huge freaking mistake, but I am honestly not all that put out by losing Flores. Everyone wants to talk about how he...
Tua is not THE problem, just one of many the Dolphins have. This team is so freaking cursed.
I am not a big Tua fan, but Mac Jones is incredibly overrated. He can be a game manager on a well-constructed team, but he makes way too many...
The Jags cost two teams the playoffs this year. Us and the Colts.
Uggh, this week is killing me.
I wouldn't care. Not that I think Harbaugh is a better coach than Flores, but if it was someone Ross wanted that badly, maybe he'd actually let...
That's inarguable. Ross is one of the worst owners in football. Top 5 at least.
The man has problems. I don't want them to become the Dolphins' problems.
I don't want Watson. But I'm afraid Ross does, and he'll give way too much to get him.
That's not going to happen. Ross knows less about football than Grier.
Some people think AB's problems stem from CTE from that Vontez Burfict hit.
I think Ross wants Watson for some reason, though I don't. The guy may not be a criminal, but he's a weird and creepy type of person and I don't...
It's just really depressing how little talent we have on our offense. I don't even think we could attract free agents as big of a mess as our...
If Ross had any clue about football, we wouldn't be in this situation. The guy can't hire a competent GM and I don't know it's going to get any...
We should have tanked harder.
Grier needs to be fired. He had some time now to draft/acquire a competent offensive line and hasn't done it.
I think we lose this game. It's been a great run, but I think this one on the road is going to be too tough. I'll be happy if we split our last...
I read Beasley is going to play now.
Tua is doing what he needed to do in order to be an NFL caliber starting QB. He's taking what the defense gives him, running when he has to and...
Damn. 85 is a good run, but...damn.
One thing is sure at this point. Jaylen Waddle was worth the pick. I didn't believe he was, but he's shown that he's an elite WR. Was he worth...
There's really not much point to any of it. Get everyone vaccinated. That will lessen the impact of the virus. Allow people who have risk...
I've thought he was an a-hole ever since he quit Florida with that BS story about his health and wanting to spend time with family and then turned...

Baker Mayfiield tested positive for COVID and will be out vs the Raiders unless he produces two negative tests between now and then.
Damn. That'll teach me to try to be smart and grab a pick no one else was going to make. I thought maybe the Vikings' injuries might let the...
There's been a lot of seasons like that for the Dolphins.
I just have this feeling the Lions will go winless and become the first team with two winless seasons. (They do have a tie at least this season.)
Holy crap my picks were bad this week.
We need better coaches at every position including head coach.
I have written a total of 49 books and I believe 47 of them are currently available on Amazon.
I have a website, but it's particularly useless...
But let's not trade him...
If he did ghost-writing, he probably can't tell you the titles. Usually, you have to sign a contract not to reveal that you wrote it and not the...
Yeah, I get that. Plus I suck at marketing. Luckily, I found a couple publishers who do a good job at it.
Thanks man. I think it's cool people actually pay money for it. Blows my mind.
I write science fiction for a living and even I can't imagine a world that starkly different from reality.
I changed my Packers-Chiefs pick to the Chiefs. Rodgers tested positive for COVID.
This is the worst coached team in Dolphins history. Not the worst, talent-wise, but definitely the poorest coaching.
I don't know if they're victims or not. I know they're accusers. He's probably a dirtbag, don't get me wrong, but whether what he did rises to...
So, you'd rather allow the state to convict someone without evidence? Because where does that stop?
No, that would be incorrect. The burden of proof in EVERY criminal case falls on the STATE. And that's the way it SHOULD be. When we have a...
The Saints aren't as stupid as the Dolphins.
Bring on the offseason.
Thank God I don't do this for money.
Oh, but it's all okay, and Tua is the answer and Flores is a good coach and you're just being knee-jerk. That's what the usual suspects will say.
No. Right now, he would be an embarrassment for this team.
I picked a place where they don't get that much snow.
As of today, I am no longer a Floridian. I am a Wyomingite.
I was born in Tampa and have always had a soft spot for the Bucs, mostly because my late father was a fan. I don't wear their gear or go to their...
No, the game would be to say "Tua is our QB and I have every faith and confidence in him." What he's doing is causing problems for Tua and the...
3-14. Maybe. 2-15 is not impossible.
Not big enough. I'd still bet on the Bills to cover.
Can't make what you don't have.
Because that always happens, that coaches and GMs say publicly that they don't trust their QB.
We've already traded everyone who's worth a damn. May as well trade anyone who someone is willing to throw a pick at so the new GM and HC can...
I doubt it's true.
You can't bench all the players. That's why you fire the coach.
Peyton Manning, Eli Manning, Archie Manning, Dakota Fanning...ANYONE and I mean right down to one of us here, could do a better job than Grier has...
This sounds more like Pirates of the Caribbean than SEAL Team 6...
You don't see who to replace them with? The damned waterboy would be an improvement. LOOK AT THE STATS. Look how low we're rated and tell me...
Well, Flores SHOULD be fired, but if we're restricted to one of the three O-coords, does it matter which one you fire?
Does it matter who the replacement is? This season is over. Fire them, promote an interim even if they're incompetent and try to replace in the...
This season, I'm not really worried about the possibility.
I picked them too. I'm going to pick against the Fins every week until they win another game.
Damn, I already have five misses. I suck this week.
Hope you're planning on northern Maine. Coastal Maine is being inundated by refugees from MA, CT and NY and the real estate prices are going...
We don't have our draft pick this coming offseason. We traded up to get Waddle. After trading down.
We might take one from the Jets. But we're losing to Atlanta.
If we could convince Ross to sell the team, everyone would get replaced.
I'd love to make you a bet. But honestly, I think I'm done. Since I am moving out of Florida, it seems like a great time just to make a clean...
There is no excuse for the losses we've had this season. Three years is long enough to rebuild. Flores and Grier need to be gone.
What color is the sky on your world?
I'm not sure about that. If the locker room has quit on the coach, Ross could be risking getting his hand-picked all-star QB (insert rolleyes...
I don't think it matters what I would do, because the guy calling the shots is a moron, at least when it comes to football.
Flores has made some really bad coaching decisions, too, though.
All the people in the press who said this team was imploding were 100% right.
****. I am moving to Wyoming in a week anyway. No NFL team there. Maybe it's time to just give up watching football. I kept hoping the Fins...
Agreed. Ross is a fan but he knows nothing about how to run a football team.
This team plays like an expansion team already, so where's the harm?
He can ride home with Urban Meyer after they both get lap dances.
This team is garbage. Three years of "rebuilding." Yeah, they tore down a 3/2 suburban cookie-cutter home and put up a double-wide in tornado alley.
He's toast. Maybe lasts the season, maybe not. I only hope they get rid of Grier too.
That isn't always the case. Tannehill performs great when his team can run the ball. When they can't, he's not that good.
How would you expect him to give even adequate performance when he's running for his life constantly and has no running game? That's not to say...
Huh? You mean any team that cut or traded all their talented veterans and drafted poorly would be having a disaster? Yes I think we can all...
It's the players, too, particularly on offensive line.
If he'd taken the safe pick, we'd have a much better team. He's another one of these morons who thinks he's too smart for the NFL and that he's...
Couldn't have said it better myself. And whether or not it's justified, whether or not it's smart, I believe the fact is, a loss to the Jags...
It doesn't matter who we hire to coach if we keep making crappy personnel decisions. We need a competent GM.
If we had any kind of pass defense, I would say we win the game easily. Unfortunately, we've shown that we don't.
After watching the Jags against the Titans, I am not so sure we beat them.
I just care about production. If we were winning and scoring points and some games we were throwing the ball 50 times and other games we were...
I sometimes think we would have been better off keeping Laramy Tunsil.
BTW, people here keep acting like this is just disaffected Dolphins fans making these observations. It's not. EVERYONE sees what's happening...
That's not a sustainable pattern for an NFL franchise. If the owner wants this team to win a SB, or even contend for one, they have to show a...
And when they don't...will you admit Flores has crapped the bed?
We won't beat Atlanta. We won't be able to defend against their passing game. We won't beat any of the last four teams you listed playing the...
First of all, it's not the losses, it's the way our defense, which is supposedly Flores' strongsuit, got embarrassed.
And second it doesn't...
Not a chance in hell. He's not getting four full seasons as a tryout. If this season goes the way it's looking, he's done and deservedly so. He...
We're 1-4 and every time we play a top-tier team, a team that made it deep into the playoffs, they blow our doors off. That's in year THREE of...
They ARE missing players. They're missing them in the draft and free agency. And on top of that, Flores and Grier can't hire a good O-coordinator...
He could help Ross halfway across the street.
Another wasted coaching hire, a once-in-a-lifetime waste of fleecing someone in a trade. This team just puts me off wanting to even watch football.
I think 50% of them were overpicked, and at least three have underperformed.
SOME premium picks have busted??
With this offensive line? And this sort of crappy playcaling?
You know where else you won't see it? From an owner who clearly is a fan but knows little about the inner-workings of the league. If we lose to...
If we lose to the Jags, I hope Flores gets fired.
I still don't know about Mac Jones. He's shown some promise and I think he'll be competent, but I still don't get the all-star QB vibe from him....
Good to see someone held accountable. Now if he would just fire the offensive coordinator and Ross would fire Grier, we'd be set.
I still think Tua can be good. We did screw up and he's not going to be as good as Herbert IMHO, but he could still be good. But not behind this...
We should fire one of our two offensive coordinators and put the heat on the other one.
Either Flores thinks we're idiots or he's the idiot.
Man, I was wrong about Herbert. I didn't want him. I was sure he wasn't all there mentally for the NFL. I was totally wrong. To be fair, I was...
Ryan Tannehill is a slightly-above-average NFL QB. He has flashes of being a very, very good QB, but his inconsistency keeps him from the...
Hoo man, I screwed the pooch on this week.
Well, it is. There are teams who are 1-3 who might come back and have a good season. And you can tell that from how they play. The Fins are not...
I thought they were going to win 11 games because I was fooled into thinking the defense was good enough to compensate for Tua's shortcomings.
Probably doesn't matter. Whichever of his relatives inherit it will no doubt sell it, given how much an NFL franchise is worth.
Jags vs Bengals--Bengals
Titians vs Jets--Titans
Lions vs. Bears--Lions
Colts vs Dolphins--Colts
Browns vs. Vikings--Browns
I was okay with us drafting Tua, though I was worried about his hip. What I was NOT okay with was who we brought in at O-line. The O-line...
This is as close to a sure loss as I have ever seen. Maybe next week, or the week after, the Fins could have a chance to win this game, but...
To be fair, I don't trust them, either. They've given me little reason to trust them wrt personnel.
And how many QB injuries will he net us before he grows?
They need to keep Flores, but they need a new GM and he needs to force Flores to hire a competent offensive coordinator. Singular.
It's called decades of poor drafting and incompetent front offices, all coming down from a clueless owner.
Venomous hate? ROFL!
Only on the internet is thinking someone was drafted too high and won't make a good NFL QB "venomous hatred." Just for the...
Panthers vs Texans--Panthers
Chargers vs. Chiefs--Chiefs
Cards vs. Jags--Cards
Bears vs. Browns--Browns
WTF vs. Bills--Bills
Tua, Brissett..does it honestly matter who plays behind this line?
We don't. Not with this team.
If it was Justin Herbert, he would have probably got out of the way. Because, you know, he's right-handed and would have been facing into that rush.
How about you believe in what other NFL QBs have done? Drew Brees played with 8 broken ribs. Chris Simms finished a game with a ruptured spleen...
They don't have much of a shot of winning with him.
I didn't like the Jackson pick either. He was a reach and everyone knew it. There were better O linemen available.
It's beginning to be more and more obvious that the nightmare scenario has come true. We got buttloads of picks and then an incompetent GM wasted...
I was about to say they better start scheming to get the ball out of Tua's hands quicker to avoid the inevitable pass-rush...but then I realized...
Flores should be forced to hire a competent offensive coordinator.
We spent a lot of picks and FA money on O-linemen. Just the wrong ones, as usual. I said it during the 20 and 21 drafts, we drafted the wrong...
I'm afraid this all but guarantees that Ross is going to force a trade for Watson.
This is what happens when you draft project O-linemen and split your O-coordinator job between two people, neither of whom is qualified.
New York Giants vs Washington - Thursday Night--Washington
Cincinnati vs Chicago--Cincinnati
Houston vs Cleveland--Cleveland

Bill Barnwell on Twitter: "The last five minutes of that game were like watching two people who have never seen football before play Madden"
Yes, but I hate the Cowboys, so...
10-7 or 11-6 I think is doable.
I wouldn't trade three first rounders for anyone. Screw that.
At this point, I need Tua to show me he has what it takes to be a solid starter in the NFL. If he can do that, we can be a contender. If not,...
Much less than the start of last season. He didn't show me what I needed to see from him. Hope it was just rookie jitters, but he'll have to...
Not interested. I think I'd stop following the Dolphins altogether if they traded for him at this point.
It's been said already, but we have to make the playoffs or this season is a failure.
The coaches may not be worried, but I am.
I hope at this point that we don't trade for Watson. As talented as he is, it would be a PR nightmare and give the team a huge black eye. Not to...
I don't see us in the playoffs this year. Maybe next season if Tua can make progress.
Damn, you're right. It's going to take me a while to get used to the 17 game season. In that case, I think 10-7 or 11-6, but I don't think 11-6...
9-7 sounds about right. They might go 10-6 but that still won't be enough to make the playoffs.
I don't like what I heard as it suggests Flores will bench Tua for Brissett if he plays badly.
Who won the SB last season? Why didn't KC win? Because their O-line was dinged up.
If you've watched enough football, you should know that having an overpowering offensive line is the lynchpin to having a winning team.
The problem with this draft isn't so much who they DID draft (who all seem like very talented players) but who they COULD have drafted. If you...
Yeah, and instead of doing something risky like that, why not simply take O linemen who are already NFL ready? It's a symptom of Grier trying to...
Yep. Our front office seems to believe you can throw an offensive line together with spit and bailing wire.
Or maybe we could have just taken a WR at pick 18 or in the second round, where lots of great WRs are taken every year.
Concussions will cut short a player's career. And he's already had a couple.
I am judging Grier's drafts on the production of the players he drafts. His first round picks have mostly not produced. The team did not go 10-6...
To me, this reeks of desperation. They wanted Chase or Pitts and were convinced one of the two would fall to them, and they didn't have any good...
You first. Other teams who've drafted high have seen immediate results. Not us. And this isn't Grier's first year as GM so why is it unfair to...
Yeah, let's not judge based on results, let's judge based on our hopes and dreams. That ALWAYS works...
Agreed. It isn't that either of the guys we drafted will be busts, most likely, it's the fact we COULD have had a special player, a...
And yet I can. We should have stayed at 3 and taken Pitts or Chase. At 6, we should have taken Sewell. And if neither Waddle nor Smith was...
I don't think that's clear at all.
I don't mind the player. I question very highly the need to trade up from 12 to 6 to get him.
Trades down aren't always available. But Waddle would have been available at 12. This was a huge error.
We should have stayed at 12. Waste of a 1st round pick to trade back up.
That was not what I was hoping for. I don't believe in drafting WRs in the top 10.
I could see someone trading for him. Probably not the Fins, but maybe someone like Washington or Denver.
To me, this means exactly that Denver is moving on from Locke and wants a veteran backup. I think they're MORE likely to draft a QB now.
I don't think we are taking Smith at 6.
Simms' draft is possible. Not likely, but possible.
I have always been an advocate for drafting Sewell, so if this means we're more likely to do it, I'm good with it.
They definitely should have stayed at 12.
I wouldn't care.
The best thing you can do for a QB is give him protection. Second best thing is give him a running game.
What he said.
Unless it's Icy Hot.
And Charlie don't surf.
Why would you trust our scouting?
And most still wouldn't. If he hadn't been behind the porous line of the Bengals, he wouldn't have gotten hurt.
Everyone I talked to was.
Most of them didn't. I didn't know anyone at the time that wanted Culpepper more than Brees.
Yeah, that's what we call a "straw man argument." It's not true. You're setting up a straw man to make you look correct, but you're not. Yes, a...
I think everyone was upset that it was Ted Ginn, Brady Quinn or no. Ginn was a mediocre player who wasn't worth a first-round pick and everyone...
I already said, if we get that 2022 first rounder back, I'm okay with it. But I doubt we will.
No, if they get a first rounder back, I will be satisfied. Not HAPPY, because I wasn't crazy about trading down, but we got a good deal from the...
Usually, what the fans wanted made more sense than what the Dolphins front office has wanted.
There is a LOT wrong with giving up value for nothing. Which is what we will have done if we trade back down. We had two extra first round...
Trading back down would be such a Dolphin move. Stupid and irrelevant. We HAD the 12th pick and an extra first rounder next year and we gave it...
Sounds stupid. The only way I'd consider it anything BUT stupid is if Chase, Smith, Sewell and Pitts are already all gone, which won't happen....
No RBs in the first round IMHO. No CBs either. Actually, no defensive players at all in the first round if I were making the decisions. I'd go...
I don't want to trade back. If anything I'd rather trade up.
No. I'd only swap 6 for 10, 44, and their first rounder next year.
Or he could be saying that Alabama QBs suck.
You can't use the Patriots as an example BECAUSE they had Brady. Having Brady covered a multitude of sins on their offense.
Yeah, no it's not. It's how you become perpetually mediocre.
It's to our advantage if Atlanta trades that pick to someone who wants a QB. With everyone picking QBs, we'd have a better chance of taking who...
IMHO, getting rid of talented players is the chief way to keep rebuilding forever.
It also likely takes them out of the running to trade up from the 8th spot if a QB drops to 6th.
2021 NFL consensus mock draft: How the internet is projecting the first round...
Bad idea. Retain talent, don't get rid of it.
Why the hell would we get rid of Gisecki just because we drafted Pitts?
I wouldn't be too disappointed if we threw a third-round pick at him. I doubt he'll be there by then, though. I think someone takes a flyer on...
There'll be a WR available. Maybe not one of the big 3 or 4, but someone.
If Sewell is there and we don't pick him, that's a clear screw-up.
Atlanta picks ahead of us.
If that happens, then it means trading back up was also truly idiotic.
Trading down again after trading back up would be truly idiotic.
Well, I am sure Wilson will take a season to get his stuff straightened out, but eventually, yeah. That's what all these people talking about "we...
I thought we should pick him at 3. If he's there at 6, it's a no-brainer.
Yeah, I agree. I think he goes between 9-12.
Well, as Avril Lavigne once said, "so much for my happy ending..."
I am, in general, a big fan of trading up and not at all a fan of trading down. So yeah, if someone is there at 11-15 that we want, I say go for it.
And I sure as hell don't want Jacoby Brisset as our starting QB.
If the team does well, I'm very happy. I was happy with the 10 win season. That doesn't mean I automatically think every move the front office...
Yeah, if you KNOW he's gonna be Gronk. But unfortunately, we don't. He could be a huge bust and that's awfully early to take a TE. I don't even...
It's a HUGE gamble. I like Mac Jones...as a second rounder. Maybe late first if someone already has their key positions filled. But third...
I don't blame him. I don't like Trey Lance.
Oh, that's a downright lie. We've had several people say he sucks and is going to be a bust and one guy even criticized him for being so...
His ceiling has been established. He's made the SB and won it five years after being drafted. He hasn't reached that level again in the last 10,...
I wanted Sewell at 3, so I'd jump all over that at 6.
Rodgers is a great QB. But if he were drafted as a rookie in 2020, he wouldn't take his first team to the SB because no one gets that kind of...
I did, because all of this is, by definition, my opinion. You can feel free to disagree or ignore it, but you don't get to tell me I don't have a...
If Tua doesn't succeed here for whatever reason, he won't be here in 7 years.
Brees as a ceiling IS horrible if you don't have the right tools and the right coaching around him. Because Brees, HOF QB that he is, only took...
No, you're the one missing the point. A rookie QB having too many INTs doesn't mean that much. A rookie QB not winning a lot of games doesn't...
And that's what we should do. If that's what we actually do, I will be surprised. I have a nasty feeling that the FO is going to think to itself...
It doesn't need to be explained to me. You've simply arrogated yourself into the roll of thinking you have the capability of explaining it to me.
Umm...dude, you did notice that Tannehill spent 7 years of mediocrity with this team and then went somewhere else, right? And that he only...
Everyone knew before they went in the draft that Elway and Manning were going to be great pro QBs. They struggled with INTs, but they never once...
Sorry, bub. You don't get to tell me what proper perspective is. I've been watching this team since the early 70s. I will decide what the...
Everyone knows we're going to keep him one or two more years. That's clear now. The question is whether that was a good idea or not. No one is...
No, it doesn't. Brees is his ceiling. His floor is quite a bit lower. And you have no argument.
You're ridiculous. You disagree with my assessment of Tua? Fine. There's room for disagreement. To say it's impossible to assess a QB from...
No, I am not off the mark for any of what I've said about Tua. You're simply in denial. Tua may be a good QB. A serviceable QB who can take our...
