    The Colt’s “Arthur Jones decided to treat himself to a new Corvette. But he made the big mistake of not taking the car for a test drive. Why does that matter? Well, as it turns out, Jones brought the car home only to discover an unfixable problem: The 6-foot-3, 337-pound defensive end can’t fit in the driver’s seat.”

    “Wish I could fit. Guess it’s going back to the dealer,” Jones wrote on Instagram.

      Speaking of FAU, their Softball team lost 1-0 to Florida in extra innings this afternoon, so congrats to the Gators who move on to the Super Regionals and a tip of the hat to the lady Owls for finishing second in their regional. Obviously FAU’s athletic department is not yet on the level of UF, FSU and Miami. But with both their baseball and softball teams making the regionals, they are headed in the right direction. NOW if our football team could just give U-M a competitive game when they play the second week of September – – – – .

    Steve

    I’ve said it already a few times. In the 2nd RD, Ali Marpet and Jake Fisher were available. I understand that they felt Phillips was too good to pass up, I said all that in my “welcome to the Miami Dolphins” article. That doesn’t mean I agree with it though. We didn’t draft for need when we moved up for Jordan. I didn’t even want Lane Johnson, but that was the guy everyone thought we moved up for. I wanted Des Trufant in that draft, and he would have been there if we stayed put, PLUS, we would have had an additional 2nd RD pick if we didn’t move up. How many CB’s have we now drafted or picked up? Trufant has been a quality starter since he got to Atlanta.

    Steve, I’ll bet you both Marpet and Fisher start for their respective teams, and play well this season. I think both of those guys fit what we needed, and both were ranked higher than Douglas. Marpet, due to the fact that he played Div III wasn’t universally ranked much higher, but some scouts really like him. I bet he’s a quality NFL OG, and he’s a very athletic ZBS fit.

    • Mike E. says:

      Actually, I recall Fisher may not start, because the Bengals have Andre Smith under contract for 1 more year, so there’s no rush for him to start, unless maybe he shows he’s better than Smith is now, which isn’t very realistic.

    • steveccnv says:

      It’s spilled milk now, lets see what happens in camp. No one seemed to like the Phillips pick, at the time, except the D coaches and they were ecstatic about it. I think we’ve done enough on the oline, but I’ve thought that way the last few yrs, so what do I know. We do have 3 PB type players at the main spots, which we didn’t know going into camp last yr, nor have we had that for quite some time. DT struggled at RT, but he was good enough at OG, as was Turner, throw in Douglas and it’s as much as we can hope for.

  6. Mike E. says:

    Not sure yet (About the Fest), but I have full intentions of making it. I just have to see how much vacation time I have and if there is fundage available to make the trip.

    • stangerx says:

      One vacay day is all you need bud.

      • Mike E. says:

        I’d really like to get there Thursday or at the very least Friday, so that’s 2 or 3 for me depending on whether I go Thursday or Friday. Remember, I’m in retail, and we work Saturdays.

      • stangerx says:

        My bad — forgot you work weekends. But hoping you make.

  7. Mike E. says:

    Thanks OD – We’ll have to wait and see man. I’m still thinking there’s a pretty good chance we pick up a vet. Why some people think a vet OL is a progress stopper, I can’t understand. Let these guys EARN their spot. If they can’t beat out the vet, then they sit until they can. That’s the way it works, and that’s how you win games.

    Only added the plus one (for tailgate Warren) cause once we hit ten we can reserve the group section (but no payment required upfront).

    IF PHILBIN’s FIRED in this calendar year, I wonder if 2015 will be the first year both the Marlins and Dolphins have fired their head coaches.

    • Mike E. says:

      OUCH! Let’s hope that doesn’t happen, because that will mean another failed season, and we certainly want no part of that!

    There’s a much better chance of me going this year, I’m just not positive yet. Last year was impossible.

  14. Rhino says:

    Lob City = Choke City lmao at CP3, Griffin, Doc, et al. Up 3-1… up 19 in 4th qtr of game 6… and lose the series. For a team with a combined 54 technical fouls this year… it couldn’t happen to a bigger bunch of whiners. 🙂

  15. Rhino says:

    Wyoming… Clippers/Rockets all the same to us. Memphis was our toughest matchup (style-wise). Rockets/Dubs have similar offenses except Warriors go through 4 guys instead of 2… Defense is a huge advantage for Warriors.

    of course not, he can afford a vet.

  17. Mike E. says:

    I’d like to make a suggestion for this Fest. How about we try and get tickets for seats where you can actually see the game? Anybody else up for that? I mean if I’m going to 1 Dolphins game a year, I feel like I want to be able to see what’s going on.

    • stangerx says:

      We’ve always gone for the cheap seats for the group. Anyone can go to the pricey ones, but we wouldn’t be all together. For instance last year the Doggie went club level, but no group on those and one of those would cost about the same as airfare here from NY.

    I’m in for 2. Maybe more.

  19. steveccnv says:

    Mike, what vet OL is available? We already picked up a couple of them, I don’t think there’s anything out there that is better than what we have, and if there are why didn’t we get those guys instead of the ones we got?

    I was thinking the same thing Mike.

    • steveccnv says:

      It’s easy just get seats up high. Everytime you guys do a fest all I hear is how great it is to sit low, well this aint basketball or baseball, so sit high and you can see everything. When I had season seats in the OB they were on the 6 yrd line 2nd to last row in the upper deck, and you could see everything, you could even see how close the ball was spotted to a first down, which you can’t do low.

      maybe you should get your eyes examined….

    nope, son is out. he didnt add is name to the list

  22. Mike E. says:

    Stanger

    I guess we can maybe get 2 groups, the ones that want to sit a little closer, and the ones that don’t. I’m sure there will be enough of both. While it’s certainly fun up there, I’m sure it will just as much fun a little lower and maybe more towards midfield. If the prices are outrageous, I might just sit up high too, but I can say I’ve never, ever, sat in good seats for a football game, and I’d like to.

  23. Mike E. says:

    Steve

    Like Brian said, there will be cuts, you know that. We got Daryn Colledge that way, and I’m hoping someone like that is cut this year. I’d love Evan Mathis to become available, he’s a solid veteran player who still can play well.

    • steveccnv says:

      Colledge was picked up and played well, but the risk was his age, and older players don’t recover like young ones, and he was put in the starting lineup, because we didn’t have anything better. The chances of getting something better than what we already have are slim.

      Do you really think 2014 Daryn Colledge would be a starter on this team? He’s not a scheme fit.

      • Mike E. says:

        I could reply by saying do you really think 2014 Dallas Thomas would be a starter on this team? He’s not good. Jamil Douglas probably isn’t the answer either. That’s the problem. A guy like Evan Mathis would start over either of those guys.

    • steveccnv says:

      Philly has been trying to get rid of Mathis for a couple of yrs now, if we wanted him he’d be in Miami, but he’s not the answer. He’s an aging vet that is nearing the end. He may give us a few games and then peter out at the end of the yr, you know the time of yr we keep fading, that pisses you off.

      So we get Mathis, he plays pretty good for 7 to 8 games, then starts to decline, so now instead of having Douglas/Thomas with a half a season under their belts at guard they’re trying to catch up, down the stretch when we need them to be in top form, when our season gets tough.

      • Mike E. says:

        Not sure what happened to Mathis last year, but previous to that, he started 47 of 48 games. Last year he played in 9 games. Not sure why you’re saying he will be done by Game 7 or 8. Maybe Thomas starts and is awful from the get-go, and then we need to press Douglas into service who will have to play down the stretch. We obviously didn’t want to meet Philly’s demands in a trade, but if he’s cut, that’s a different story.

  24. steveccnv says:

    Son of a bitch!

    Is Chip Kelly the new Belichick?

    http://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/nfl/changing-nfl-extra-point-could-make-tebow-a-weapon/ar-BBjUZY2

    The Eagles proposed the new 2 pt conversion be from the 1 yard line, and in anticipation of that happening they signed Tebow.
