Welcome to the Miami Dolphins!

RD 1, Pick #14

WR Devante Parker – Louisville 6’3” 209

Devante Parker Dolphins
With our first pick, the Dolphins added the big playmaking WR Devante Parker to an already impressive WR corps. Parker joins 3rd year pro Kenny Stills (Saints trade), 2nd year pro Jarvis Landry (2nd RD #63), veteran receiver Greg Jennings (FA), and 4th year pro Rishard Matthews, and a few WR’s fighting for roster spots such as Matt Hazel, LaRon Byrd, Michael Preston and Tyler McDonald.

Devante only played in 7 games as a Senior, after breaking his foot early in the season, but if there were any doubts about lingering problems with the foot, Parker squashed them quickly by having an outstanding 7 games! Parker brought in 43 receptions for 855 yards with an impressive 19.9 (CALL IT TWENTY!) YPC average, along with 5 TD’s.

So what can we look forward to with Devante Parker here in Miami? I doubt he “starts” right away, but I’m sure he will play in every game right from the start. I honestly expect Jennings and Stills to be the starters on the perimeter with Landry in the slot, but Parker will get plenty of opportunities. I wouldn’t be surprised if at some point, maybe halfway through if Parker is playing at a high level and has firmly grasped his responsibilities, that he will push Jennings and eventually replace him as the starter, possibly by mid season, or shortly afterward. Even if he doesn’t, as long as he contributes to the team, and can help our team, that works for me. Parker brings the size and catch radius we don’t have at WR. He should be a redzone threat every time he’s on the field, due to his size, and his ability to locate and snare passes at the highpoint.
I’m looking forward to seeing this exciting addition to our offense!

RD 2, Pick #52

DT Jordan Phillips – Oklahoma 6’5” 329

Jordan Phillips

The Dolphins traded back a few spots in RD 2 from #47 to #52 with the Eagles and selected the big DT from Oklahoma. Most consider Phillips a 1st RD talent, and like Danny Shelton, a true NT. Obviously, we play a 4-3 defense, but Phillips will be in as a run stuffing DT. Earl Mitchell will compete with Phillips, and will likely hold on to the starting job for a while, unless Phillip really surprises and shows up very quickly. In any case, Phillips is probably a 2 down DT, and even if that’s the case, think of how much more effective Earl Mitchell will be coming in fresh on passing downs.

This was an important pick. I’m sure the Dolphins were well aware of the uncertainty we have on the O-line with possibly 2 OG spots up for grabs, and Pro Bowl LT who is still recovering from a devastating knee injury and hasn’t even yet begun to run. I’m sure it came down to the fact that they simply had Phillips rated higher than any OT or OG on the board, even if I didn’t. Last I looked, I’m an Optician, not an NFL scout or HC or GM. Still, I thought the O-line was more of a priority, but you have to draft talent when it’s there, and I believe that’s exactly what we did, despite the fact that I believe OT Jake Fisher and Ali Marpet OG will be starting on their respective teams, the Bengals and Bucs.

Suh will be the one guy getting the Lions share (Did I just say that?) of snaps on the DL, and then depending on the team and situation, Mitchell, Phillips, Anthony Johnson and AJ Francis will share snaps, along with the speed package which might bring in an extra DE inside like Terrence Fede or Derrick Shelby.

So what can we look forward to with Jordan Phillips in Miami? Phillips, like Parker probably won’t start, but the D-line is kind of like one big rotation anyway, with the objective of keeping bodies fresh. War in the trenches is exhausting work, and Suhperman will certainly be the snaps leader, but he’s 28, so I don’t expect them to burn Suh out, so I’d bet he plays less snaps this season than he did last season, and hopefully, that’s because some of the other guys begin to emerge like A. Johnson and AJ Francis. The hope is that Phillips strengthens the run defense, and I’m sure that’s exactly what he will do. Hopefully, he makes the job of our LB’s a little easier by keeping them clean, so they can just tackle the ballcarrier, and not have to wrestle with a 320 LB OG or C.
______________________________________________

RD 4, Pick #114

OG Jamil Douglas – Arizona St. 6’4” 304

Jamil Douglas

Jamil Douglas played LT his Senior year at Arizona St. switching from LG to LT. Douglas is a 4 year starter, playing his first 3 seasons at LG. Douglas is a first team All-Pac 12 player. An athletic OL, he moves fairly well, but the general consensus seems to be that he’s more of a finesse player, which largely fits the ZBS anyway.

Before the draft, he wasn’t considered a top 10 OG prospect, but every team and their scouts see things differently, and the Dolphins were obviously impressed with Douglas

So what can we look forward to with Jamil Douglas in Miami? At this time, he will compete for a starting OG spot, most likely LG with Dallas Thomas. There is also a possibility that we pick up a proven veteran G, or maybe even win the La’el Collins sweepstakes, but for now, he’s in the running for a starting job.
______________________________________________

RD 5, Pick #144

CB Bobby McCain – Memphis 5’9” 195

Bobby McCain

Bobby McCain was a 4 year starter at Memphis. In 4 years, McCain had 12 INT’s, with 6 his Junior year, and 5 his Senior year. In addition, McCain scored 4 TD’s on those INT’s, and added 16 passes defensed, 1 FF. McCain is around the football a lot, but his size makes him more likely to play nickel corner than out on the perimeter, but then again, there is Brent Grimes, so . . .

McCain also returned kick offs and averaged 25.3 yards per return in 3 years.

So what can we look forward to with Bobby McCain in Miami? Besides us singing “Me and Bobby McCain”, I expect him to compete for the nickel corner spot with recently acquired Brice McCain from the Steelers, and possibly to even compete for a starting job opposite Brent Grimes. If there’s one thing we’re sure about with our CB’s is how unsure we are.
______________________________________________

RD 5, Pick #149

RB Jay Ajayi – Boise St. 6’0” 221

Jay Ajayi

Sometimes, strange things happen in the draft, and this was one of those strange things. Generally considered a 2nd RD talent, RB Jay Ajayi took quite a tumble in the 2015 NFL Draft, all the way to the 5th RD! With our 2nd pick in the RD, which shows even we were a little leery about selecting this stud RB, we finally could wait no longer, and pulled the trigger on what could easily be one of the biggest steals in the draft. Due to a medical red flag, Ajayi fell about 3 rounds due to a knee injury he suffered back in 2011. I’ve heard the “bone on bone” thing, and in general, the consensus medically is that there’s not a lot of cartilage left in his knee. OK, enough of WHY he slipped, and more of WHY he’s a 2nd RD talent

Ajayi was injured in 2011, 3 years ago. in 2012, after coming back slowly from injury, Ajayi rushed 82 times for 548 yards and 4 TD’s, and a 6.7 YPC avg.

In 2013, Ajayi all the way back now, rushed 249 times (33 more rushes than Lamar Miller last season) for 1425 yards, 18 TD’s. Last season, Ajayi’s Junior year, he rushed 347 times, (which is 52 less than the entire Miami Dolphins team last season) for 1823 yards, 28 TD’s. TWENTY EIGHT! Also, he added 50 receptions for 535 yards and 4 TD’s for a total of 2,358 yards from scrimmage, and 32 TD’s. BTW, Ajayi is the first college RB to rush for over 1800 yards and have 500 receiving yards in a season. Just amazing.

So what can we look forward to with Jay Ajayi in Miami? While Ajayi isn’t really Marshawn Lynch, he’s another quality back that can give us some pop in the run game. He’s not a beast mode back, but he’s a guy that can effectively go through traffic and runs with power. He’s also a shifty back, and can wiggle out of tackles too. Ajayi is a former soccer player and has great feet. He’s kind of like a swiss army knife at the RB position, he can run between the tackles hard, and can run well in open space and make defenders miss with good footwork and moves, and is a good receiver out of the backfield.  I expect Ajayi to compete with Miller and possibly steal a fair amount of carries from Miller. If the reports are true on his knee, Ajayi’s shelf life in the NFL isn’t a long one, so I expect the Dolphins to try and get what they can now. I think he’s a good complement to Millertime, and I believe Miller will look more explosive next to Ajayi. Miller is the faster back, and hits the hole as quick anyone, and gets down the field fast. Ajayi may be the better between the tackles runner, who can create when there doesn’t seem to be any room. I really look forward to seeing Ajayi in our offense.

RD 5, Pick #150

FS Cedric Thompson – Minnesota 6’0” 208

sel1194 Minnesota Penn State

Thompson was a 3 year starter at Minnesota. He played mostly at S, but also played some CB. He was not invited to the NFL combine but ran well at his pro day. Thompson ran a 4.48 and 4.50, had a 40.5” vertical, 10.2” broad jump, ran the 3 cone drill in 6.96 and put up 21 reps of 225 lbs. He’s obviously a good athlete, it’s just a matter of putting that on the field in his game. As a Senior, Thompson had 2 INT’s and 2 FF’s. In 3 his year career, Thompson had 5 INT’s and 3 FF’s.

Scouting reports state that Thompson has below average instincts, but hopefully we can help him out some by teaching him how to be in the right position, and maybe he can improve.

So what can we look forward to from Cedric Thompson in Miami? Best case scenario for him is that he wins the starting FS spot opposite Reshad Jones, but realistically, he’s competing for a roster spot and depth at the S position with Walt Aikens, Jordan Kovacs and backing up Louis Delmas and Reshad Jones.
______________________________________________
RD 5, Pick #156

CB Tony Lippett – Michigan St. 6’2” 192

Tony Lippett

Two way player at Michigan St. , Lippett was used mostly as a WR. In 4 seasons, Lippett caught 149 passes for 2247 yards and 15 TD’s. As a DB, Lippett has 9 passes defensed, no INT’s.

The Dolphins intend to play Lippett exclusively as a CB, and at 6’2” 192, he gives the Dolphins defensive backfield some much needed size. He ran a pedestrian 4.61 at the combine, but improved slightly at his pr day with a 4.57 and 4.59. As a WR, it would seem that he’s able to catch the football, and actually, Lippett is described as a good hands catcher and one with good leaping ability to highpoint the football.

So what can we look forward to with Tony Lippett in Miami? I wouldn’t rule out another position change for the Amazing Mr. Lippett. I’m sure they’ll try to wring out as much as they can as a DB from Lippett, but if that fails, I think he may be given a shot at WR, where he did well for Michigan St. Lippett was his team MVP, so he’s a high character guy you want to stick around. I’m sure he’ll be a factor on ST’s, as will Cedric Thompson and Bobby McCain.

UNDRAFTED FREE AGENTS

WR Damarr Aultman – Maine 5’11” 202
OT Mickey Baucus – Arizona 6’6” 298
P Matt Darr – Tennessee 6’1” 220
LB Mike Hull – Penn St. 6’0” 237
WR Christion Jones – Alabama 5’10” 182
OG Dionte Savage – Oklahoma 6’4” 347

LB Zach Vigil – Utah St. 6’2″ 240

UDFA’s are always long shots, but I think Mike Hull is one guy who may make the roster. Hull was a very productive player at Linebacker U, and although his measurables are on the small side (As most of the LB’s in this draft), I think he’ll make it.

Hull ran 4.68, put up 31 reps (top performer) of 225, 6.99 cone drill (top performer) and an 11.52 60 yard shuttle (top performer)

Hull had 140 tackles (75 solo) his Senior year and 10.5 TFL’s, along with 1 INT, 5 passes defensed and 1 INT, and 2 FF’s. He should be a good ST’s at the very least, and provide some depth at LB.

Zach Vigil was another very productive LB at Utah St.  Vigil had 156 tackles (79 total) and 20.5 TFL, along with 9 sacks, 1 INT, 4 PD’s and 1 FF.
______________________________________________

UNDRAFTED AND UNSIGNED FREE AGENTS

While there are many, there is only one in particular that concerns me.

OT La’el Collins – LSU 6’4” 305

La'el Collins DRAFT

As many of you know, I wanted to draft Collins at #14, but bizarre and unresolved circumstances led him to go undrafted. A double murder, of Collins’ ex girlfriend and her unborn child. At this time, The police still don’t consider Collins a suspect, and he was questioned recently about the case. He has, however, not been cleared as of yet.  If he’s guilty, then obviously I hope he’s punished to the fullest extent of the law, even death.  I do hope he’s innocent, and if he is, I want him on our team.

I think this player, as much as any player we drafted this year, would be a huge part of our success in 2015 and beyond. I consider La’el Collins the missing piece to the puzzle of getting into the playoffs and maybe all the way. We solidified the defense with Suh and Phillips. We totally overhauled the WR corps adding Kenny Stills, Greg Jennings and subtracting Mike Wallace, and adding in the draft Devante Parker. I believe overall, a major improvement at WR. We added a very talented RB in Jay Ajayi. Maybe Jamil Douglas is the real deal and can win the starting LG spot. Maybe Dallas Thomas is ready to take that next step, and maybe Billy Turner is ready for prime time now. On the other hand, there is no question at all in my mind that if we somehow get La’el Collins, not only does he start, but I think he’s the difference maker on the offensive line. He can play G or T, but what wonderful insurance if Branden Albert isn’t healthy. If Albert IS healthy, all the better, and Collins is our starting LG, with Turner and Thomas to battle it out.

It’s a longshot, and when you bet a 32-1 horse, you don’t stand around the cashier with your ticket expecting to cash it in. If it does win, it pays big, and La’el Collins would pay us some big dividends, all the way to the playoffs baby!

A guy can dream, right?

    Ken, Miller has 70 NFL receptions…Ajayi – 0

    Don’t get me wrong, I really really like Ajayi’s potential. But he needs to show he can put play Miller before we anoint him as a better receiver, etc.

    • getterdone says:

      show he can out play Miller ^^^

    • Ken says:

      Don’t get fooled by numbers you have more football smarts than that. Watch the tape. Miller is not a strong pass catcher as a RB. 70 catches in 3 years is nothing special. Ajayi is more natural as a pass catcher.

    Okay we see things differently on this subject. I’ll sleep just fine tonight unless those tacos burn my asshole to shit. LOL

    david, is that you

  3. Tim Knight says:

    Williams and Gillislee need to step it up with Ajayi here now, not Miller.

  4. finfanrob says:

    tim

    and all i meant is yeah i get the respect thing but when i comes to ones opinions about the fins, well we all have our idea of what is right.

    I get that. I was touching on something else. It’s all good.

    yeah i know. i usually have that effect when chatting with some one. but to be honest i am usually pretending to be a 21 yr old bi coed

  6. Ken says:

    Tim:
    I think Williams sticks as the 3rd back. He got a significant amount of playing time last year and looked good in particular as a pass catcher.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Agreed. I think unless Gillislee doesn’t show anything, our 53 roster backs are Miller, Ajayi, Williams and Gillislee – three are active on game day. Do we even have any other RBs on the roster?

  7. Tim Knight says:

    I’m interested to see if we play more 5-2 which is kind of a 3-4 but not totally.

    LDE Wake off the edge of the RT
    LDT Suh over the RG
    NT Phillips over C
    RDT Mitchell between the C and LG
    JACK Vernon or McCain off the edge of LT
    ILB Misi
    ILB Jenkins

    • Ken says:

      If Phillips is over the C I don’t think there will be any room between the C and LG.

      • Tim Knight says:

        LOL, that’s basically a threat to go ahead and run on us. I don’t think there will be a lot of that this year if we’re healthy.

  8. Ken says:

    Alright gents. Busy day tomorrow. Peace to you all.

  9. finfanrob says:

    ok i am out too, going to leave tim alone to touch himself.

  10. Tim Knight says:

    I think we’re forgetting how good Suh is and how he changes everything. Starks was a good player, Suh is an upgrade up over him.

    When opponents have to focus on Suh everyone else eats. LOL

  14. Mike E. says:

    Just need to get this out of my system. I was listening to NFL radio on my drive home, Alex Marvez and Mark Dominik. I felt like Howard Beale in the movie “Network”, I wanted to open my car windows and shout “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it any more!”. Those 2 guys were slobbering over Tom Brady, and all his past accomplishments in his career, and how this shouldn’t taint his career, on and on and on. Unbelievable! So this is where we’re at? If you have success, it excuses cheating and any other transgressions that may further enhance your success? Should A-Rod, Barry Bonds, Mark McGwire and all the steroid users be given an out because of their previous success? Bonds, and possibly A-Rod too, were almost surely HOF players BEFORE they took steroids, but the fact that both of those players cheated has soiled everything they did. EVERYTHING! I say the same standards apply to Tom Brady. If he’s such a great player, and arguably he is, it should be that much more unacceptable that he, or anyone in his organization would look to circumvent the rules to make it easier to win. It’s disgusting, and I hope he burns for it, at least a half a year suspension, and possibly an omission from the Football HOF. Pete Rose did less to affect the outcome of a game than Tom Brady, and he’ll likely never get in, so Tom Brady should never be in the HOF.

    OK, sorry, just needed to vent. I almost threw up in my car listening to Marvez and Dominik gargle on Brady’s jizz. SHEESH!

    • getterdone says:

      Well stated sir!

      • Mike E. says:

        Thanks! I found it really offensive how they were fawning over him. Please, he’s a cheater, and his team has been proven to cheat time and time again. Cut the shit, and look at it on the face of what it is. An organization that constantly seeks an advantage against their opponents by circumventing the rules.

    • steveccnv says:

      You need to listen to a new station, everything out west is, they’ve had enough of the cheats cheating and getting away with it.

  15. getterdone says:

    Guys, all I’m pointing out is Ajayi is a college rookie that played for Boise St., yes he looked well rounded in the college passing game.
    Let’s give Miller his due…He didn’t play hardly at all in his rookie season. He’s come on his last 2 seasons. Last year was very close to a 1400 total yard season behind a still suspect OL.
    Lets not be quick to give up on Miller & anoint Ajayi as the go to guy just yet.
    With that said, of course I’d like to see Ajayi become a stud too! 2 studs in the backfield, what a great thing! 🙂

    Go Phins!

    • Mike E. says:

      I missed the Ajayi discussion. I think he’s going to be a big part of our offense. Can’t imagine him getting less than 50% of the workload this season with Miller.

      • steveccnv says:

        Exactly, why burn either one out, but split the load with what they excel at. Miller is the speed guy and Ajayi is everything else. It’s not to hard to watch the tape of Ajayi and see he has skills catching the ball. Big difference between a college/NFL running back catching the ball and an NFL WR catching it, the difference being the RBs are usually a safety valve and wide open, so if you can catch it in college the NFL shouldn’t be much different, what you do after the catch is completely different.

  16. Mike E. says:

    Maybe so Steve. Some guys on NFL radio don’t do that. These guys were just plain offensive.

    • Mike E. says:

      Bill Polian may be my favorite guy on that station, I love when he’s on.

      • steveccnv says:

        I like him too, but he gets too politically correct sometimes and doesn’t speak his mind.

      • Mike E. says:

        Steve , while that may be true, and even understandable, at least he doesn’t spread the Patriots gospel. He also sometimes explains things so wonderfully, like organizational things, why teams do certain things, i think he’s great

      • steveccnv says:

        That’s what I like about him.

  17. getterdone says:

    Tom Brady said Thursday during an appearance at Salem State University that he is still trying to process the Ted Wells report and will wait to comment on it.
    Brady told Jim Gray he will allow “the process” to unfold before addressing claims made in the report. By “process” we assume he means discipline from the league. Brady went on to say the DeflateGate scandal has not “tainted” New England’s Super Bowl victory. Brady’s agent Don Yee called the report a “terrible disappointment” while accusing the Colts of “perpetrating a sting operation.” The consensus around the league is that Brady will face at least some kind of suspension for his role in DeflateGate.

    • Mike E. says:

      All bullshit worth absolutely nothing from the cheater. Frankly, who gives a fuck what he has to say anyway? He’s a cheater, and he’s been revealed. Is it really important whether he agrees with his punishment? Of course not. If he’s going to say anything, it should be a big fat apology to the NFL, and the fans of the 31 other teams!

  18. Mike E. says:

    Steve

    I think you misunderstood me earlier. I wasn’t calling for Ajayi to be a 25-30 carry guy, but i think the team should be rushing at least 25-35 times a game, with a relatively even split between Ajayi and Miller, and basically go with the hot hand. If Miller is killing it one game, maybe he gets more work that game, and vice versa. They will both benefit from that, and I think they complement each other very well.

  19. Mike E. says:

    I think Williams is going to have a relatively small role, but that could change if someone goes down for a bit.

  20. Brian in NY says:

    Miller’s pass catching ability has grown expontentially over the past three years. I suggest looking at the tape from each season individually, and you can see the improvement from year to year. He looks like a more natural pass catcher now, it doesn’t look so forced anymore.

  21. Try Pod says:

    With all due respect to my friends here on this blog, I just can’t get worked up about Tom Brady. I don’t think everyone cheats, but I think some do and I think must look for every “advantage” they can. Jerry Rice used Stickum after it had been outlawed- the guy Im is referred to as The GOAT. offensive line men hold on nearly every play, but because it’s not called it’s not cheating? It is against the rules. What I doo not like about the Patriot Way is there apparent lack of respect for the NFL and its fans. You’d think if you’d been caught doing something bad you’d tone it down, but their approach seems to be to continue to flaunt the rules. It seems to be a pattern.

  22. Rhino says:

    Cowherd’s show pretty much ripped Brady. Said the Dolphins took their “Wells Report” without complaint and complied… while the Patriots whine: “which team is the classy team?”

    also, all the talking heads ragging Philbin for ‘not knowing’ but the same people willing to NOT apply the same standard to Belicheat.

  23. D says:

    Guy Collins signed with Dallas because they were one of the first official offer and the has NO OFFSET LANGUAGE. Other teams had tons of offsets and out clauses. I’m still not convinced there might not have been a little extra sweetening the deal by Jones he knows how to Ben the rules and he gas tons of “friends” who could have helped him in any number of ways make the deal sweeter. Still just have no offset and guaranteed money probably was a better option. It is what it us and Dallas got him. Its over let it go. Be for the guys we got not the one we didn’t.

      the ravens game was pretty close. And I bet the did the same thing in that game just didn’t get caught.

      The problem with some of the unreasonable defenses about that the cheats did is that people like to say the Cheats would have beat the Colts anyway which is probably true

      The fact is, when you are not competing on a level playing field, with eh same rules being applicable to everyone, you are ripping the heart out of the point of all sports.

    And the Ravens apparently tipped off the colts to the deflated balls

      True, but that’s just speculation by the Ravens even though I believe them. The difference is the balls were found deflated in the Colts game.

  86. finfanrob says:

    ken

    yep the pats fan are fucking hilarious with this thing. one called the local show and was giving all these dimensions of how the football changed and that based on that it would only have like a 6″ advantage of throwing the ball. the host just ate him alive about what an idiot he was trying to defend cheating.

  87. finfanrob says:

    the best argument from a pats fan is:
    ‘yeah, but so what. it really didnt make a difference’

    it just shows how fucking stupid you are. so i get this straight, the pats are going to go through all these hoops to cheat, break the rules, suffer from potential fines and penalties and the media and negative backlash of cheating and do it all cause it really didnt make a difference….brilliant.

    • Ken says:

      That’s the beauty of it all is that it probably didn’t but yet they have such a paranoid control freak of a head coach that he can’t see that and will always look for whatever advantage he thinks he can get even if it is beyond the rules.

  88. finfanrob says:

    ken

    if that is true and didnt make a difference or very little of a difference then belicheat is an idiot. first, the fumble stats prove it does make a big difference. but if it didnt and he still cheated then he is an idiot. and if like you said he will always look to break the rules then he should be kicked out of football. i think the whole franchise should be harshly punished. this is the second time they have been caught cheating. it is obvious they dont care and will do it again. to bad the nfl doesnt have a independent commissioner that could punish them

    • Tim Knight says:

      The punishment is not Goodell’s call, it’s Troy Vincent because it was a game violation. So maybe he will be harsher.

      • D says:

        If they go after them as if it was a conduct thing it becomes Goddell. If they go for the violation from that one game you may be right. Id go after him those as a conduct/(PED like) violation, that would allow the punishment to be more severe.

    • D says:

      It makes a difference, though i will agree with one of the Colts players, it didnt make any difference in that particular game. That was a lopsided ass whippin.

  89. Try Pod says:

    I was just pointing out the (North) East coast bias always going on here on the blog. Jahn knows what I’m talking about lol 😛

  90. New Age says:

    It did make a difference though. Belicheat knew because it lowers turnovers. Pats have one of the best TO differentials in football the past 5 years. TOs win games and so this was Bills new way of finding an edge.

    • Ken says:

      It could have a made a difference in the bigger scheme of things. I don’t think it mattered in the game vs. the Colts and ultimately the Pats won 3 SBs before the rule change that allowed teams to inflate their own balls so I don’t think it made a huge difference one way or the other. To me it is a matter of principal. They are violating a league rule in an effort to gain a competitive advantage even if the advantage is real or just perceived.

  91. Ken says:

    FFR:
    I don’t think Bellicheck is an idiot. I think he is paranoid. Possibly to the point of a clinical diagnosis. He is a control freak and yes I think he deserves a significant punishment because this is not the first transgression but we will see what the league does.

    • Tim Knight says:

      The key is control freak and paranoid, there is nothing that happens with his team that he’s not aware of.

      • D says:

        I fully Believe this. I think he is just the opposite of Joe in that respect. Joe felt he let men manage thier own lives, Belichick leaves nothing to chance. Its why i feel he at very least had suspicions of Hernandez deep involvement in gang activity, possibly even his potential involvement in that first set of murders. I definitely think nothing Brady did wasnt with his full knowledge.

  92. Tim Knight says:

    It will be funny if the Pats are having all kinds of fumbling issues with balls they can’t control this year. LOL

    • New Age says:

      I think the punishment should be two games for Brady and the other teams decide their psi for every game up to one lb higher than legal. Let’s see if inflation level means nothing like the media says.

  93. D says:

    Maybe they should just let them do whatever they want to, but if at the halftime or after-game measurements the balls are below inflation levels, for each one a fan from the opposing team gets to kick Brady in his balls. We could film it and it could be the first season of the much anticipated series “Ow, My Balls!”

  94. getterdone says:

    Vikings fourth-round pick T.J. Clemmings is participating at rookie minicamp.
    Widely projected as a potential first-rounder, Clemmings’ fall to the fourth round was supposedly due to a stress fracture in his foot discovered during the pre-draft phase. It’s a good sign for the Vikings that Clemmings is healthy enough to practice. He’s been getting reps at both guard and tackle.

  95. Rockphin says:

    So I went to my local watering hole last night for dinner and wound up staying four hours drinking afterward. Go myself pretty drunk. At one point I was eyeballing this pretty 30-something brunette and decided WTF I’m going to go talk to her.

    SOOOOO, I’m chatting her up for about 15 -20 minutes and it seems to be going pretty well so I say to myself “I’m gonna ask her for her number” (Big step for me! I haven’t asked a girl for her number in 15 years!!) So I ask her for her number and she says “You know, I’m really flattered, BUT I prefer to date older, more established men” ………..

    I didn’t skip a beat and said “Well now I’m flattered, how old do you think I am?” She says “I don’t know, maybe 34 or 35?” I laughed and said “Well, thank you that is the nicest brushoff I have ever gotten. I am 46 and very well established thank you very much. AND just so we are on the same page, I am not looking to be any chicken head’s sugar daddy” and walked away from her.

    The two guys sitting next to us HOWLED laughing. IT WAS FUCKING AWESOME! LOL

    I broke out of my reluctance to “put myself out there”, handled the “rejection” without any emotional scaring and turned it around so that she was the one being rejected all in one moment. That was a good time. LOL

  96. Rockphin says:

    Thanks guys. It felt REALLY good, even though I WAS rejected. I just can’t stop laughing about it today. I’ve told about 6 ppl at work the story already, called my brother in CO this morning to tell him and have now told you guys. LOL

  97. getterdone says:

    See, we didn’t need to draft any LB’s. Hickey had a plan to make Philbin happy after all. 🙂

    “I like the group we brought in. They seem to be real serious guys. They were productive players in college,” Joe Philbin on undrafted LBers

    • Rockphin says:

      They just need to identify one or two of them as “keepers” and develop them! Other teams can do it. Why can’t we?

      • getterdone says:

        We have & we will.
        Most of us really like Hull & Vigil, Luc could be a nice 2 down thumper, I don’t see him in coverage as much.
        Tripp we drafted, but hoping he makes the 2nd year jump like Jenkins did.
        McCain was UDFA, he flashed some early, he too could be up for more in year 2. Maybe even Knott….gonna be a competitive camp in the LB corp.

    • BoulderPhinfan says:

      what else is he gonna say? I hate the hacks we brought in. I wish we’d drafted a LB in the 1st 2 rounds?

  98. Rockphin says:

    Getterdone, I just worry about old saying, usually said about QB’s, “If you have TWO QB’s it means you really have none” ……apply that to LB’s……

    • getterdone says:

      Wha?
      Who cares if you bring in 2-3 LB’s from UDFA. The cost is next to nothing but time in practice. Lets see who’s hungry & healthy!

      • Rockphin says:

        It is not a waste of resources thing it is a “at the end of the day we don’t have any starter quality LB’s kind of thing…..LOL.

  100. Rockphin says:

    PBF why always so negative?

  101. New Age says:

    Ken,
    Belicheat reminds me of Nixon. He has to know, he has to have the smallest of edges, he has to find a way to win no matter what. The Pats stole defensive signals around the time they won their first 3. isn’t it weird that a 6th round fresh faced QB is barely winning these games? That he somehow finds a way to win 3 SBs in 4 years?

    They always are looking for the exact same edges everyone else is. They also look for any illegal edge as well. When you have a history of cheating, winning a few games after you are caught doesn’t mean it’s ok. It just means you are a very, very good team but you can’t live with that. You must eliminate chance as much as possible even if you have to cheat to do it. Cheating ruins competitive games.

    • Ken says:

      Pretty good comparison between Bellicheck and Nixon. I can see that. Yes I do think cheating is wrong but no I don’t think it means the Pats would not have won the SB last year. The rule was changed in 2007, the Pats lost 2 SBs since then but finally won again last year. The previous 3 SB wins were before the rule change. The Pats were a winning team before the rule change and they were a winning team after it. So I don’t think it ultimately changed anything but like I said before on principal because they were trying to gain an unauthorized competitive advantage they should still be punished.

  102. getterdone says:

    Boulder & Rock,
    If our LB corp was that bad or desperate, then I’d think the vet FA & draft would have went different.
    Remember how the WR corp got decimated? Well, look at how quickly & efficiently our FO went to town overhauling it.
    Don’t you think they would have approached the offseason differently if they didn’t already have some confidence or idea of who’s already here?

    After year 1, I’m willing to give Hickey & staff the benefit of doubt. They seem to really have a nice handle on things finally. Look at the secondary too, nice retooling there too.

    • BoulderPhinfan says:

      I’m tired of crowning this team superbowl champs in may. I’m sure hickey is great but what did his greatness do for us last year? the same 8-8 as with Ireland did the year before. Actually the year before we were still in it game 16. Win and we were in. Last year we were done by week 14.

  103. stangerx says:

    “Generally aware? More probable than not? After the story broke, Brady was texting the ball guy like he was a late-night booty call,”

    — Jon Stewart

  104. Ken says:

    Try:
    I was listening to NFL Radio on Sirius XM satellite. So not sure where you were going with a northeast bias as that was a national broadcast I was listening to.

  105. Ken says:

    I think our draft and FA moves indicate our coaching staff has a pretty high opinion of the young LBs on our roster. I am little nervous in that they are untested but we completely bypassed LB in the draft and FA so we must be pretty comfortable with what we have. It seems to me that the coaching staff thinks our problems with the LBs were more to do with the DTs based on our off season so far.

    • getterdone says:

      Thanks Ken.
      Well, we did resign Sheppard, and signed vet Paysinger, but neither were high end FA’s.
      But yes, I think they like Tripp & McCain as well. Plus we may now be seeing a lot more 5-2.

  106. getterdone says:

    Damn it, I’m addressing the LB corp and all you guys can keep talking about if friggin Brady’s balls…smh 🙄

  109. Tim Knight says:

    D, also a lot of bullygate was done away from the facility when the OL group were out and about so Philbin wouldn’t know everything that went on. The deflated balls is a game thing and there is no way ball boys would do this on their own and Belichick would be oblivious.

  110. Try Pod says:

    The ne bias would have been because it’s about a team in the ne add if it’s the center of the world- not surprising ne-er’s would be the last to see it- lol 🙂

    • Ken says:

      Well our 3 divisional rival are all teams in the NE so yes we tend to focus on them more and 1 team in particular has dominated not only our division but the entire NFL since the turn of the century so I don’t think it’s geographical bias but a bias based on our rivals.

    It sounds to me like Phillips is just stating why he fell to the 2nd round. Let the guy prove himself.

    Jordan Phillips on what needs to improve: ‘My work ethic. Just learn how to work, have a motor like Wake, like Suh. Try to take after them.’

      FUCK YEAH!! I would LOVE for him to have a motor like Wake, like Suh.

      A lot of young people in college do not have great work ethics. Mike E just called his son a lazy fuck earlier today. LOL
