Wedge Scouting Report: Clive Walford

CliveWalford4Wedge ID

Once I was given a mission to destroy the planet V9 DEXXR.  So I spent months on this quaint little planet doing research all day on the best way to destroy the planet.  I just could not come up with anything really creative to impress my employer.  But I didn’t mind the process.  I had this beautiful villa on the side of a dormant volcano.  The aliens of V9 DEXXR were so nice too – really an incredible race.  They have great restaurants and I ate out every night.  Without knowledge of why I was there, they did everything to make me feel at home and I really enjoyed the famous DEXXR hospitality. 

Hooters&Antennas

But I grew frustrated, “why can’t a find a way to destroy this paradise and appease my boss?”  Then I realized that the dormant volcano was a perfect path to the planet’s core.  It was the perfect size for a laser blast from a neighboring moon!  So I put my plan together and shot a laser into its core.  As I listened  to the screams of the dying planet I thought to myself “sometimes exactly what you are looking for is right in your backyard!”

CliveWalford1

Hey Dolphins, the redzone threat you need is right in your backyard.  Tight End Clive Walford is  a 6’4 athlete the can run, block and catch.  And he is from the U.  Like I said, right in your backyard!  In his four years at the University of Miami he scored 14 TDS including 7 in his senior year.

CliveWalford2

Most of you know that the University of Miami has put a ton of tight ends in the NFL:  Jeremy Shockey, Greg Olson, Bubba Franks, Kellen Winslow, Jr., and of course Jimmy Graham.  So you know they teach them well at the U.  However, don’t make the mistake of comparing Walford to Graham.   Walford is not a burner like Graham is.  He is not going to impress anyone with his 40 time at the combine.

CliveWalford5

Walford is a technician.  Yes I know, that my surprise some of you.  He is, after all thought of as a great athlete and its true…he is.  But Walford isn’t getting open by burning people.  Walford is running a diverse set of routes so smoothy, he is creating separation and getting open most of the game.   Walford also uses his body effectively to get open.

CliveWalford3

These are the kind of skills that Earthlings tend to notice at, for example, practice.  And it just so happens that Walford’s draft stock shot through the roof at the Senior Bowl.  Will Walford’s stock continue to rise?  This alien says “no”.  I just don’t think Walford is going to wow Earthlings at the combine.  But he has already impressed this alien.  Walford is running away with all three of my hearts.

Clive Walford, Chris Casher

If I was going to compare Walford to an Alien Weapon of Destruction, I would compare him to a Triangulum Shooting Star.  “Oh look how pretty a shooing star…Its so close and so lovely…its getting closer too…maybe a little too close…its coming right at us…ARGHHHHH!!!”    Boom, you are dead.  Walford just snuck up on you.

WalfordStar

Watch his highlights.  But be warned, he is coming at you!!!

    FFR,
    Why don’t you get down on your knees and suck Tim Cook’s (Apple CEO) cock.

  2. Al in MIA says:

    FFR,
    If you want a device with no software restriction then Samsung is the way to go.
    I’d wait for the next one as it is being redesigned from the ground up.

  3. getterdone says:

    If Wallace’s 1st year in Lazor’s new offense produced 10 TD’s and 4-5 more that were dropped, then I say we need to see what he can do in year 2 of this improving offense.
    Draft 1-2 WR’s to start grooming experience for his eventual departure in 2016.
    The new drafted WR’s would begin to get some good playing time if Hartline/Gibson/Matthews are gone.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      I agree with this

      but how can we draft 2 WRs
      and draft impact Defensive players
      and OL

      How many picks do we have

      • D says:

        It makes it tight piggy i agree, it makes me lean towards trading back, but look at my recent drafts, i have been able to get two WR’s in all of them without screwing us on any other spot. Keep in mind, there will be a FA or two which is going to help that work out.

      • getterdone says:

        We could gain a couple picks in a trade down, plus Aponte & Hickey will be busy clearing room for FA signings.
        Hey, the destruction of Jeffro can’t be rebuilt over night 😉

    • D says:

      I dont think the idea we need to draft two WR’s has any bearing on Wallace, as much as it does if we do or do not cut two of our current WR’s. Three of them have potential to go, so IMO we really need to get a couple guys and we might as well make one of them a potential replacement for Wallace, this year or next.

  4. The Flying Pig says:

    My tope 2 picks at $14 right now are:
    1. Danny Shelton
    2. Kevin White

    if one of them drops and we take them I think it shapes what we do for the rest of the draft

  5. Al in MIA says:

    GDP,
    I’ll go by recent history when it comes to figuring out what will happen with Maxx & Clive….
    Last year’s TE draft?
    Ebron (RD 1; Pick 10; 10 overall)
    Austin Seferian-Jenkins (RD 2; Pick 6; 38 overall)
    Jace Amaro (RD 2; Pick 17, 49 overall)
    Troy Niklas (RD 2; Pick 20; 52 overall)
    C.J. Fiedorowicz (RD 3; Pick 1; 65 overall)
    ———
    I think Maxx & Clive are at least on par skill wise and development wise as Amaro or Niklas were coming out of college.

    I think Jeff Heuerman (Ohio State) would be a nice fit for Miami even though he’s more of a Heath Miller type TE than a Graham type guy. What Miami needs is a good balance on both sides of the OL for any situation. The TE position depth chart has been pathetic for a few years.

    FFR,
    Why don’t you get down on your knees and suck Tim Cook’s (Apple CEO) cock.

    does it get me a free phone? i mean come on, a free phone

  7. stangerx says:

    Al — proud to be a pole…..but screw the bean soup. Get your some of this (Turkey Kielbasa version of course).

  8. getterdone says:

    Al, I wasn’t big on Ebron or Amaro last year, but was really high on ASJ who I think really breaks out in 2016. He had back issues last year, like our Lynch.

  9. finfanrob says:

    al

    thanks, just looked at the new releases. i may just do that. and yeah yeah, i get it, ffr loves a good new release.

    if all you got is ffr likes to suck dick jokes i am going back to the other blog. at least there i could get take one in the throat

  10. Silly Tim says:

    I love pierogis with fried onions and sour cream.

  11. Silly Tim says:

    So how many Polish do we have here?

  12. herdfan says:

    The Flying Pig says:

    February 10, 2015 at 4:08 pm (Edit)

    My tope 2 picks at $14 right now are:
    1. Danny Shelton
    2. Kevin White

    I think it’s going to take more than $14. 😉

  13. D says:

    I dont think Walford is comparable to Ebron, not even close, they arent the same type WR. Ebron if he ever grows into his potential will be a receiving type that Walford will never be. I also think Comparing him to Amaro is not a good comparison as he is better than Amaro in some respects but not as good in other. Amaro is more Clay or Hernandez type (minus the murder), I think Williams reminds me a lot of Amaro. Walford i think is a lot like Scott Chandler, or Owen Daniels, maybe Dwayne Allen.

  14. D says:

    Mike E. says:
    February 10, 2015 at 4:37 pm
    I’m 1/4 Polish
    Mike E. says:
    February 10, 2015 at 4:38 pm
    Make that a 1/3. Polish, Russian and Lithuanian
    Mike E. says:
    February 10, 2015 at 4:40 pm
    Damn! 1/2 Russian, 1/4 Polish, 1/4 Lithuanian
    —————————————————–
    Thats the Pollock on you coming out…..math is hard huh?

  15. getterdone says:

    We could fill a need @ S from FA again. Delmas is likely done here given the ACL tear.
    But the Chiefs have two safeties that played well and are FA that could be had on a reasonable deal.
    Kurt Coleman is 26 & Ron Parker is 27. KC can’t keep both I’m sure. So we might want to add one while Aikens/Thomas continue to develop.

  16. D says:

    Round 1 Pick 14: DeVante Parker, WR, Louisville (A)
    Round 2 Pick 15: Benardrick McKinney, ILB, Mississippi State (A)
    Round 3 Pick 14: Jalen Collins, CB, LSU (A)
    Round 4 Pick 15: Ibraheim Campbell, SS, Northwestern (B+)
    Round 5 Pick 14: Austin Shepherd, OT, Alabama (B)
    Round 6 Pick 15: Matt Jones, RB, Florida (B)
    Round 7 Pick 15: Tre McBride, WR, William & Mary (A)

  17. Silly Tim says:

    3/4 Irish, 1/16 English, 1/16 German, 1/16 French, 1/16 some Scandanavian

  18. Silly Tim says:

    LOL @ D and his pole

  19. dbolt48 says:

    1/4 polish

  20. The Flying Pig says:

    4/4 Cuban

  21. Silly Tim says:

    Fette Sau

    • D says:

      Thats a place i plan on checking out if im ever back up that way. Last time i travelled to NY, i missed out going. Is it good?

      • Silly Tim says:

        I have yet to go there but my friend owns it.

      • D says:

        When i travel i look for BBQ places, because BBQ is different ever region you go to, so its a little like getting to experience something thats native to the regiion. NY being a melting pot city, i dunno if thats still true but i dont care ….i wants it!

  22. stangerx says:

    “On Tuesday, Judge E. Susan Garsh endorsed an application to grant Jenkins immunity in exchange for her testimony. She is now expected to become a prosecution witness, perhaps the most powerful the Commonwealth has.”

    And that would be Shayanna Jenkins, the mother of Hernandez’s child. Also the sister of Odin’s girlfriend. I’m sure Aaron is still just falsely accused though.

    • D says:

      Im believing despite all the evidence Boston is going to fuck it up. With what they have, they should have struck a lot harder blow by now. Makes me think they have some sort of weak point they are trying to get addressed before jumping in feet first. I mean they have motive, they have video surveillance putting him at the spot at the time of the murder, they have texts which on their own are circumstantial, but corroborate the timeline and the events that the video evidence shows transpired. They have eye witness accounts or seeing them pick Odin up. There has to be something where hey are scared to push the case further without sealing up something, i just dont see what it could be. I think worst thing i have heard against them is they never recovered the weapon, or do that have that as well?

      • getterdone says:

        I think I read they have Hernandez’s cell phone tracked to the same area Odin’s body was found and it pinged during the same time frame. Pointing to him at the scene.

  23. Mike E. says:

    My dads parents were both Russian, my moms dad was Polish, and my moms mom was Lithuanian. I think my percentages listed above are right going by that.

  24. getterdone says:

    I’m nervously anxious as we approach FA. I wanna see how Hickey begins his new plan. He has a huge mess facing him with many UFA’s on this team, being currently just $2M under the Cap, the several other bloated contracts for under performing players, the looming $100 million dollar man Tannehill, plus many draft picks in 2nd -4th year that are not showing much production.

    Then he has to do well in the draft after all that.

    2015 is a do or die year for him & Philbin. For them to reach the playoffs will be a HUGE bright spot on their abilities as coaches & GM.

  25. Silly Tim says:

    D, my friend owns a few places in the Williamsburg area of Brooklyn. I remember about 15 years ago when he and his wife were coming up with the business plan. I haven’t seen them in awhile and a few of us have been discussing going into Brooklyn to check it out.

    It gets great ratings from what I’ve seen. Knowing him he’s not going to fuck around and cut corners on quality.

  26. The Flying Pig says:

    I say Cuban and suddenly 10 pork replies follow …

    We like eating at all the different famous places and what the legion is famous for. We recently ate at a Lebanese restaurant in S.Miami and it was great. NY has many restaurants I just wish I could visit and eat at the many great restaurants.

  31. jetsssuck says:

    damn we got a cold front coming friday we are expected to have lows in low 40’s

    • D says:

      We got it today, its not severe. I had brought my plants back out because it had been so warm past couple of days, i thought would be safe, and then boom cold lol… It wasnt bad enough to bring them back in though.

    I say Cuban and suddenly 10 pork replies follow …

    I even like the fat

  33. getterdone says:

    Citing “sources close to the team,” Bleacher Report’s Jason Cole reports there’s a “big question” about whether the Broncos want Peyton Manning for 2015.
    “At this point in his career, the Broncos could fail (Manning’s physical) for any reason, including the four neck surgeries that he has already had,” Cole said. “They’re going to have to feel very comfortable about this.” Manning’s $19 million salary will no longer be guaranteed if he fails his physical. While Manning’s health was an issue late in 2014, we find this report very hard to believe. Until now, every utterance — both public and “sourced” — has suggested Denver desperately wants Manning back. Perhaps this is just a ploy to speed up Manning’s decision. Manning will reportedly meet with GM John Elway before the Combine.
    _______________________
    Jughead will be 39 in March. But I’m sure they want him back for one more run at a title. But they best be looking for a QB in the draft in case Brock isn’t the guy for the future.

    • D says:

      Yeah, i mean they got rid of Fox because he wasn’t aggressive enough trying to get them a SuperBowl, then they would want Manning (only reason they would have a shot at one in next god knows how long) gone? I don’t see it. I think Manning should hang them up though.

    • D says:

      Manning said he wouldn’t drag this out, but i have to question his definition of dragging it out lol….taking his sweet time for sure.

    • steveccnv says:

      Manning is coming back, paleez.

  34. getterdone says:

    Alex Marvez ✔ @alexmarvez
    .@MiamiDolphins are signing veteran TE Ryan Taylor. Real good special teams player with legit chance of making 53-man roster @NFLonFOX
    __________________________________
    27 6’3 254, last with the Browns, before that with GB.
    I don’t get this signing when we have Lynch coming off IR, we just signed Stoneburner to a reserve/futures contract, and we have Gerell Robinson listed on the active roster.

    • steveccnv says:

      Competition, we need 90 to fill the camp roster, and if he’s an ST specialist he could make it that way, so being listed as a TE may not mean anything.

    • Silly Tim says:

      Competition. They obviously want to get better at the position. That’s why they drafted the mighty Lynch last year.

    • steveccnv says:

      I don’t remember seeing a post like this before, a guy that I don’t know who he is, and have them mention he has a legit chance of making 53-man roster.

      • Brian in NY says:

        I guess that is saying that he is probably on par with Lynch, Stoner, and Robinson as a #3 TE, but his special teams play could edge the others out for a spot on the team.

  35. Silly Tim says:

    Boo!

  36. getterdone says:

    I know he’s camp fodder, that and Hickey is honing his GM skills cause he will be very busy soon….lol

    yep, nothing like a good cuban sandwich or dinner. black beans yucca, white rice. and pork slow roasted. piggy never tasted so good.

    Well if Anthony Johnson can’t crack our DL as a starting DT, he can always sing for the Phins crowd…Ross would like that.

  41. dbolt48 says:

    Nice little video

    • dbolt48 says:

      Holy shit….the actual video posted.

    • getterdone says:

      Good stuff Dbolt, if that doesn’t give us fans hope nothing will. I lso love the running ability of #17, that will make him even more dangerous as an older QB with a savvy pocket presence.
      This kids arrow will be pointing up for at least the next 7 years.
      Give him his contract Ross/Aponte/Hickey!

  42. Silly Tim says:

    GD, I see Tripp is listed at 240. I thought he was 245 when we drafted him then I started to see 235 along the way. I think he needs to get a little bigger and stronger though. Maybe not so much weight, but more core strength. I like what I saw from him.

    When we had some injuries during the PS he was 2nd team MLB and he didn’t look lost out there. At times he looked like he was thinking a bit, but he also showed some good closing speed. He looks the part of a LB. I think he was drafted with the idea that he would compete in a couple of years to be a starter. If not he can play STs and be a solid backup as a 5th rd pick.

    • getterdone says:

      He was drafted @ about 230-235…so he is gaining strength.
      I said before that he should come alive in year 2 like Jenkins did. I still stand by that.

  43. olddolphan says:

    FINALLY got on the site today!! -GREAT ANALYSIS, Mr. PIGGY!!! -Good ole Clive would look good in a Fins jersey!!!
    ——————-
    Hope to have time for a brief visit tomorrow morning before going to work. Tomorrow night I’ll pack for my trip to below-freezing North Carolina for a few days. Y’all have a great evening!–
    OOOPS, before signing off, the info package I was SUPPOSED TO GET FROM THE DOLPHINS TICKET OFFICE LAST THURSDAY/FRIDAY STILL HAS NOT ARRIVED. Maybe it’s just a myth and not a reality (like the winning seasons we’ve had under Philbin). Makes me wonder WHICH I’ll see first, the INFO PACKAGE or a winning season by Philbin??

  44. Mike E. says:

    It would be great if Tripp could shine this year, and really compete for a starting spot. We still need to draft a playmaker somewhere on the defense. I’d love to see Holliman at safety, and either an ILB or OLB as well, Thompson, Dawson, Kendricks, Perryman or McKinney.

  45. Silly Tim says:

    I watched a Tanny highlight video a few days ago and everything you’d like to have your QB do he did. He may not be great at everything at this time or maybe never will be, but he has the ability to run any play there is. Not all QBs can do that. Look at his numbers in his 3rd season and people think he’s average. He could be a monster in his 5th season.

    • Mike E. says:

      He’s grown consistently each year. I think that’s all you could ask for. Just keep improving, get better at the little things, and they will add up to big things.

    • dbolt48 says:

      Could be s monster in his 4th. Everything depends on the OL and players being responsible to their jobs.

  46. Ken says:

    What’s up FUers?

  47. Mike E. says:

    Hey Ken – How’s it going?

  48. finfanrob says:

    February 10, 2015 at 7:32 pm

    Was Piggy before the meal or after?

    if he is slow roasted and with lots of mojo it doesnt matter. then you enjoy piggy all night long

  49. Ken says:

    Nice highlight reel on Tannehill. I do hope they wrap up that long term deal for him. I think he is on the threshold of becoming a high quality NFL QB.

  50. Ken says:

    On the Walford/Sims comparisons. I think Walford has a lot more receiving skill than Sims had at the time he entered the draft. Sims is still kind of a work in progress as a receiving threat.

  51. getterdone says:

    Mike E, add Stephone Anthony to your list of LB’s in the draft for us. He looks good in coverage too, as well as playing the run. Plus he can blitz. He’s 6’2 245. We’d be set @ Mike for a longtime.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      Prof Lou mentioned Anthony recently and he does look like a good player

      which is good

      I was beginning to think it was 3 guys or bust at MLB (McKinney, Perryman or Kendricks)

  52. Silly Tim says:

    Tanny could be a monster in his 4th year, I said 5th because sometimes QBs get to that next level at 5-7 years. They’re usually 27-30 and have a lot of experience now. One thing about Tanny, he’s a tough SOB.

    2012: 12TD/13INT
    2013: 24TD/17INT
    2014: 27/12INT

    That’s what you want to see. I remember when people were grilling him for being a -1 at 12/13. Boom! He’s now a +21 at 63/42. Eat it! LOL

    Cut him? That’s the only option if you don’t want him and his salary around the team :/.
    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I was just saying that the VOTE at the top of the Blog could include everyone but about 4 players currently on the team!
    Almost everyone s expendable @ 8-8

    Tanny could be a monster in his 4th year,

    and some where in a cold deep place up in minn. randy is having a nice cold beer then out of know where he feels a sharp stab in his back. he looks up and all around and says to others. i must go and defend the honor of tanny will never ever be a monster qb.

  56. Ken says:

    Gotta run for a bit. BBL. Peace.

  57. Mike E. says:

    GDP – I think someone else here likes Stephone Anthony, think it’s Prof Lou. I can’t watch the video at work, I’ll try to check it out.

    • Silly Tim says:

      He’s physical but he looks a little lumbering in space. probably why he’s a mid rd prospect. That doesn’t mean he won’t be a solid player though.

  58. wyoming85 says:

    As XXX used to say
    If you don’t like Paul Dawson you can??????????????????????????????

    Now that shit is funny there!
    Your score is: 4803 (GRADE: A-)

    Your Picks:
    Round 1 Pick 9 (NYG): Kevin White, WR, West Virginia (A)

  61. getterdone says:

    Yeah Anthony jumped out at me awhile back…I’m one of those that looks past the early rounds as well. Lots of sleeper type talent out there.
    Ahh, but then ya have to coach them up 😯

  62. Randy says:

    Ya don’t throw a lot of INTs when you throw 6 yard passes. He had 6 of his 27 TDs(22%) in the final two meaningless games where the opposition was thinking about their vacations….and many here who are tanneholics said those games meant nothing. He’s never even sniffed a playoff game. He threw almost 600 passes this season…so how could he NOT throw for a lot of yards? Virtually every team that had as many attempts threw for 4000 yards…and even some who threw less did. He was, I believe, ranked 28th in 20+ yard passes….and 30th in 40+ passes. His YPA was horrible(tied for 26th in the league), and it most definitely was NOT just because of his OL as some people keep suggesting. Plenty of QB’s in the league get the same pressure….Tanny’s protection was not horrible compared to the rest of the league. Statistics are fun to look at…but they mean as much as a pair of balls on a sow. Wins…let’s see if he can actually elevate the guys around him for once and get above .500. Gee, wouldn’t that be something? if he has to have everything around him perfect to win….just how damn good can he be?

    But, as Tim says, anybody who doesn’t “get it” with this kid must be an idiot….so it must be true. Yeah, only the best QBs go 3 years without getting above .500. Of course, it is always somebody else’s fault….so Tanny has that going for him.

    Aaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh! I feel so much better. Fanboys.

    Wyo, Now I know that site is bunk if it grades ones draft as A- after they trade all their picks to move up and get one player.
    What, are you Ditka and Ricky Williams? Don’t forget the weeding dress for Kevin White.

  64. getterdone says:

    Randy > “Ya don’t throw a lot of INTs when you throw 6 yard passes.”

    Sure, ask Russell Wilson about his half a yard pass.

  65. Randy says:

    Piggy,
    I would say the same thing. Lol. I don’t question the kid is a gamer….but I don’t care if it doesn’t result in wins. Lots of QB’s who are gamers.

  66. Silly Tim says:

    Did I use the word idiot? Maybe Randy is Brian Williams. LOL

    Nah, I’ll just ask wilson about getting to the Super Bowl two years in a row with a crappy OL and no receivers.

  68. Randy says:

    Tim,
    Yes you did, but lucky for you I do rather resemble that remark.

    Randy, you’re right Tanny doesn’t elevate the guys around him.
    He passes for over 4000 yards, and the receiver with the most yards was Wallace @ 862, so I guess he’s horrible at going thru his progressions as well.
    Not bad for a guy sacked another 46 times eh?
    Hell, Tanny even made the OL look good rushing for 5.6 YPC himself @ 311 yards total.

  71. wyoming85 says:

    OK

    _______________________

    Their OL paved the way for Lynch to rush for over 1300yds, another 367 receiving and a total of 17 TD’s, add that and a #1 defense against both the run & pass and Miami might have been in the SB too.

  73. Randy says:

    GDP,
    TANNY has never made his OL look good. That’s just ridiculous. He holds the ball too long, doesn’t throw it away when he should, doesn’t move in the pocket to avoid pressure and is almost always exactly where defenders expect him to be at the top of the pocket….making it easier to sack and contain him.

    But, I know I may as well be farting in a wind storm. I’ll go back to my corner with a colander on my head. It’s all good. Hopefully Tanny goes nuts this season and gets us in the playoffs!

  74. Silly Tim says:

    Randy, Tanny was ranked 4th in the NFL in passes over 20 yards with I believe 60+ even if that means YAC. That’s why he threw for over 4,000 yards, not with 6 yard passes and misses on deep balls. LOL

  75. The Flying Pig says:

  76. Randy says:

    Tim,
    Not sure where you’re looking, but NFL.com has him at 28th with 41. Maybe their stats are wrong.

  77. Randy says:

    And you throw for 4000 yards….which is no big deal anymore… by throwing almost 600 passes. it’s a matter of volume and a 16 game season not talent….that’s why 12 teams did it….and 5 other teams were within 250 yards of it.

  78. getterdone says:

    Randy Frostbite,
    Tanny does make his OL look good, or Lazor does, by calling for quick short passes before 2 seconds are up and he gets killed.
    Even when he gets his passes off, I still see our offensive linemen laying on the ground all over the place.
    Let’s hope we get a playoff caliber OL that Benton make make Chicken Salad with in 2015.

  79. Mike E. says:

    Piggy

    Leading candidate for what? To be cut? lol

  80. Randy says:

    GDP
    Luck also threw 42 TDs….and fewer INTs. With a very average OL…because he knows how to avoid pressure and took chances deep. Luck and Tannehill don’t belong in the same conversation. Lol

    • getterdone says:

      Wrong Luck had 40 TD’s & 16 INT’s & lost 6 fumbles & was only sacked 27 times, so his OL wasn’t that bad.
      Oh, and he does this in one of the worst divisions, no wonder they win the division, get a playoff birth, then got beat!

      • Silly Tim says:

        Some say he’s fantastic at avoiding the rush and he is but he’s also mistake prone at the wrong time. He’s a gunslinger – like Marino. Tanny is being trained like Montana/Rodgers and the best is yet to come.

        My prediction from the stars is 30/9 in 2015 for Tanny. Even though Philbin has nothing to do with Tanny’s growth and everyone but him has been a positive influence, like QBs coach Zac Taylor and OC Bill Lazor, we should be okay. LOL

  81. getterdone says:

    So Randy Frostbite,
    What QB do you think Miami should go after in FA or draft to turn this franchise around and put us in the playoffs?
    ….I’ll be awaiting your eloquent answer.

  82. Silly Tim says:

    Randy reaching to denounce Tanny in any way possible. Yes everyone throws for 4,000 yards now, 12 of 32 and others were close, but no cigar. If Tanny was no cigar we’d have another topic. LOL

  83. Randy says:

    GDP
    one who can win more than 8 games and get in the playoffs. If Tanny can do that, great, but he hasn’t proven he can yet. If you’d like to explain to me how he’s proven that he can…feel free….because I ain’t seen it.

  84. Randy says:

    Tim,
    And just how many games did 4000 yards win for us?

  85. getterdone says:

    BTW, if Tanny was QB of the Colts in that crappy division, then he’d already been in the playoffs.
    So tear that one apart Randy 😉

  86. Randy says:

    GDP
    if Tanny played in Indianapolis, he’d have been sacked 45 times and been sitting at home watching the playoffs….just like he did with us. See, anybody can just say anything they want. Lol

  87. Randy says:

    Ok, laundry is done…time to get some sleep. GO TANNY….as long as he throws for 7000 yards nobody cares if the team wins! Lol

  88. Silly Tim says:

    Randy, not sure what your bias is about Tannehill, but you sure ignore him being sacked before he even turns around to see the field. When that subsides it’s easier to discuss the state of the team. 🙂

    • dbolt48 says:

      Our play LG-C-RG was universally rated the worst in pass pro last year….That’s not the QBs fault. Not the QBs fault you have to run your offense from shotgun because they struggle letting the QB get to the top of a 3 step drop or the fact they can’t hold up in PA situations.

  89. Silly Tim says:

    Listen, I don’t want to come off as a guy who tramples on your faith, but know that not everyone sees life the same way. That’s the easiest way to say it.

    If God is almighty, didn’t he give me my freewill to use what he gave me? When does it end?

    Why does the devil (lol) always win?

  90. dbolt48 says:

    In fairness to Randy though, we all have someone on this team we don’t care for. Like me with Wallace or Mike with Lynch. The only difference is one of these 3 will be here for the next 7yrs…ha, ha.
