Wedge Scouting Report: Shawn Oakman

ShawnOakman1Wedge ID

I was toying around with this Earthling Video Game – John Madden Football.  So I decided to create my own player.  I set all the height, weight and muscle definition to the max settings and I created this freakish athlete I named after a tree.  I call it the Shawn Oakman.  This player I created is freakishly enormous, he would cause havoc if he were real…oh my saturn…it can’t…no…no…oh no!!!  It’s real!  The Oakman is real!!!  Everyone run for your life!!!

Sam B. Richardson, Shawn Oakman


I made a monster.  Everybody run.  Oakman is a 6’9, 270 lb, Defensive End from Baylor.  Most people don’t think  of defense when they think of Baylor.  Well keep thinking that way.  Oakman just squashed your puny closed minded brain!


 I made my Oakman monster with a meanstreak.  He is mean, big, strong and relentless.  Scouts always note Oakman’s motor.  Just look at the size of Oakman.  No don’t.  Don’t look the Oakman moster in the eye!  Just run for your life.


Oakman can be an elite pass rusher in the NFL.  In a 2014 season full of blowouts with plenty of pass rushing opportunities for Oakman, he recorded 10 sacks.  He may look huge, but he flies to the ball carrier like a much lighter monster.  He has a quick burst off the ball that is certain to wreak havoc on the QBs of the NFL.


He can play in space too.  Oakman may be a better fit at as OLB in a 3-4 defense.  Whomever drafts Oakman is going to get a heck of a OLB or DE one that will scare the gravity out of the opponents bladder.  I hope Ryan Tannehill never has to face the Oakman monster.  The Dolphins should draft Oakman in 2016 just to secure Tanny’s healthy future….


The Oakman monster was caught by some crafty trappers at Baylor who convinced him to stay at Baylor for his senior year.  Oakman probably would have been a first round pick in 2015 but he stayed at Baylor.  Well every NFL QB just exhaled.  Put him in a cage now!  Feed him backup QBs every night to keep him happy.  If Oakman was a Alien Weapon of Destruction, he would be a Rancor!


Now you know who to run from in 2016.  Or maybe you can draft him and have him crush QBs for you!

    Concerning Kenny Stills, a lot of his catches are “immediate tackle” catches, because he catches a lot of hotly contested balls.

    Throwing the ball to Kenny Stills means you get the full 14.8 YPC plus any 2-3 YAC. Throwing the ball to Lamar Miller for 7 YAC might only be a 3 or 4-yd gain on the field.

    75% of Kenny’s catches went for first downs. So yes, that is a great possession WR.

  3. naplesfan2010 says:

    YAC is an odd stat.
    You’d think it meant these “long bomb” type receivers getting tons of yards every catch, and a few are that. But many are not that at all. Which is better YPC or YAC?

    Matt Forte and Fred Jackson for example only averaged about 7 YPC but finished 1st and 5th in YAC.
    There were 7 RBs and 3 TEs out of the top 20 YAC guys (half of them), because basically ALL of their yards are after the catch since they are often thrown the ball at or even behind the LOS. Matt Forte and Fred Jackson for example only averaged about 7 YPC (bottom 20 in the whole NFL) but finished 1st and 5th in YAC out of everybody who caught 30 or more passes.

    Of the 22 lowest YPC, all were RBs and TEs except for Tavon Austin who is listed as a WR but caught most of his passes as a RB.

    Darren McFadden was last (#142) in the NFL in YPC. DeMarco Murray, Jamaal Charles, and Lamar Miller were 135, 136, 137. That does not mean these are bad players or even bad options in the passing game. It’s their role.

    ANOTHER nice report,Piggy!! WELL TAMPA BAY fans are all excited about tonight’s 6th game of the Eastern Conference Finals, set for Amalie Arena at 8:00 PM. –ONE MORE WIN by the Lightning will eliminate the New York Rangers and move the Lightning into the STANLEY CUP FINALS FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE 2004 when they won the cup in 7 games!! —Meanwhile, Lightning owner Jeff Vinik is putting some of his profits into a total redevelopment of the adjacent downtown area, including a swanky area known as “Channelside.” Things are going very well in Tampa Bay!! –Talk to you fine folks after work.
    TOMORROW,the Old Dolfan takes you to Three Rivers Stadium in Pittsburgh where the Steelers will host the 15-0 Miami Dolphins in the 1972 AFC Championship Game. And WHAT A GAME IT WAS!!–Don Shula, still stinging from his losses in Super Bowl III and Super Bowl VI, was determined to prove his critics wrong BY COMPLETING THE NFL’S ONE AND ONLY PERFECT SEASON!! Don’t miss game #16 of “ABSOLUTE PERFECTION!”

  5. naplesfan2010 says:

    Stills plays like a junkyard dog IMO. He snatches the ball away from DBs and swats their jams and holds away, and yeah he ducks under some hits In heavy traffic or in an exposed posture, but that is AFTER catching the damn ball, not instead of catching it. Did he not have some gaudy catch to target ratio? I thought I remember it was 79%!!!!!!!!! WHAT??

    And that stepping out of bounds thing is the Drew Brees way. “Get what you can and stop the clock and give me another shot downfield.” Much better use of the clock than standing there with a guy wrapped around your legs for 8 seconds while two more guys come up to make hamburger out of your knees and waste precious time that Drew Brees can turn into TDs!!

    That might not show YAC, but it shows he WINS contested balls. He is certainly fast enough to run with guys, so if he had not been working with that really short QB, he might’ve had more YAC.

    Wait !! Ryan is 6 frickin 4!

    ooops forgot the links

    Kenny Stills 2013 – “Nerves of Still”

  7. The Flying Pig says:

    Good video Naples
    I think the Saints offense uses the deep middle a little more than we do
    I expect stills to be a big YAC guy for us

  8. Mike E. says:

    I think YAC and YPR are both important. If you’re able to catch the ball down the field and average 17 yards per catch, that’s just just as good as catching 5 yard passes and getting 12 yards after the catch. TD’s are also important, and we need more of those, and with the guys we have now, we shouldn’t have trouble.

    • son of a son of a shula says:

      Yeah but if you catch the ball 9-12 yards down field and fall down every freaking time then you get banished to Cleveland.

      • Mike E. says:

        That’s true too. I think Hartline was the anti-YAC. He was good at making the catch and going down, or getting his feet down in bounds near the sidelines, and then going out of bounds. He rarely caught a pass and turned upfield to get a lot of yards after the catch.

  9. Ken says:

    Nice job PIggy. I will definitely be keeping an eye on Oakman this year.

  10. Ken says:

    Welcome back Mike E. How was St. Lucia?

  11. son of a son of a shula says:

    Naples, If you are still around, I’ll put the offensive part together for Thursday and let everyone start ripping into you, lol. I’ll embellish it a little with some pics.

  12. Mike E. says:


    You were on the money wth the Atlantic ocean and the seaweed. They had an “unusually heavy” amount of seaweed this week. They were grooming the beaches what seemed like every half hour to collect the seaweed. My sister and her family were going on the tour you talked baout today, we just didn’t have any time. Nice place though for sure. Fun group of people too, which always make it better.

  13. son of a son of a shula says:

    Emmanuel Dieke is on our roster and is competing at DE. He’s from Ga Tech and has a nickname. Does anyone know the nickname?

  14. stangerx says:

    Glad — you had a good time Mike E. You were missed…….especially by me after each game in the Mets/Bucs series. 🙂

  15. stangerx says:

    Pig — Oakman sounds like the real deal. Unfortunatley, I wouldn’t rule out taking a DE high next year with Wake’s age (curse on you Dion Jordan).

  16. Mike E. says:


    Looks like there’s a good shot I might be going to the MIA vs NYG Monday Night Game. Gotta see if I can pull off both games, or just go to the MNF game.

    t/y for adding pix and yeah I have already changed my mind on one guy, so let’em shred my depth ratings.

  18. naplesfan2010 says:

    Great wedge Report.
    I agree with you and Stanger that next yr DE might be a rnd 1 or 2 pick for us. I just hope a good one is left to fall to us when our pick at 29 comes.

  19. son of a son of a shula says:

    At 6’4 and 170 lbs his Freshman football coach first tried to get Dieke to play basketball but Dieke insisted he wanted to play football where upon the coach began calling him “Too Tall” now at 6’7 Too Tall is competing for a spot on the Miami Dolphins D-Line.

  20. Mike E. says:


    I hear ya man, but honestly, I would not be disappointed if we pick at #29. That would be a good season for us, and then next year, we go all the way.

    • bookman11 says:

      I would too, but I can dream can’t he?? This has been a long…..long…dream

      • Mike E. says:

        Absolutely, and don’t let me interfere with that. I feel you have to start to somewhere. Getting into the playoffs and making some noise is a good start. Next year, more experienced, you go the distance.

  21. Ken says:

    Mike E:
    If you ever go back take one of those tours. They were the price of the whole trip. We had a blast and I really did like that place seaweed and all.

  22. Mike E. says:


    That sounds great for the Pirates, and bloody awful for the Mets. They might not just need me to be their optician, I might just be able to crack the lineup. lol

    • stangerx says:

      LOL — give them a call……they might be looking for you on the mound too. Harvey was not Harvey…..he lasted four innings. Sorry dude. Now I’m just rubbing the salt in.

  23. stangerx says:

    As much as we rank on players at times, guess we shouldn’t get upset when one dishes back.

    “I can honestly say it’s a place that knows how to win. I’m glad I’m getting back to a place with a great fan base and sold-out games.”

    — Ellerbe on playing for the Saints

    • son of a son of a shula says:

      He can dish back but he clearly doesn’t know the Saints history. Tell him to go ask Archie Manning about their history, ask him which fans originated the paper bag over the head, no name fan.

      • bookman11 says:

        Exactly. Noisy place to play and sold out games NOW, but that place was a mausoleum when the team sucked in the early days

  24. naplesfan2010 says:

    Just speaking generally, we can beat Denver, Pitt, Cincy, and SD if we encounter them in the first two rounds of the playoffs. We have at least a 50/50 against Bills, Ravens, Chiefs, and Colts if it’s one of them we play. I think the Texans & Jets QB problems will keep them out of the playoffs.
    That means if we make the playoffs, I think we have a better than even chance to get to the AFC Championship game. If that’s against the cheaters, well we have split with them the last two years and they appear to be weaker against the pass this year, soooo …

  25. The Flying Pig says:

    • stangerx says:

      I got paywall on that. Guess I’m back on the SS blacklist, but yeah….saw he did tweet an apology. Still what was on his mind though.

      • The Flying Pig says:

        It wasn;t really on his mind
        it wasn’t an apology
        He said he was just trying to express how excited he was about playing for the saints

        He wasn’t trying to say the Dolphins were not those things, albeit I think you can read that into his comments

      • stangerx says:

        How can you not Pig? The article I read also included him talking about what it was to play for the Ravens as context.

  26. son of a son of a shula says:

    Hey Ellerbee out of almost 50 years of existence the Aint’s have been relevant for about 8.

  27. The Flying Pig says:

  28. Ken says:

    LOL @ Ellerbe ripping the dolphins on not knowing how to win. Maybe we figured out how to win is with a LB that actually can make tackles and cover a back out of the backfield.

  29. The Flying Pig says:

    Booker I thought that was a map of new orleans or something…I don;t know
    its kinda gross

  30. stangerx says:

    Gonna defend Ellerbe a bit. Dude came from Baltimore. Some of the biggest homer fans ever. Then he comes to Sunlife. At home games I can’t miss the Pats, Jets or Cowboys fans cheers when their team scores. I’m sure he caught that too.

    • naplesfan2010 says:

      and Ravens fans outnumbered us at their games where I was sitting.

      • stangerx says:

        There were a bunch of them for sure. Not the majority but enough to give a loud cheer when the Ravens won.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      He really did not say anything negative about Sunlife or its fans
      you have to infer that from his statement about the saints fans
      I’m not sure he meant it like that at all

      • stangerx says:

        He might have meant it far more as a positive to the Saints. He always seemed like a good guy, but “I’m glad I’m getting back to a place….” We know where he came from, where he was and which place he’s talking about now..

  31. The Flying Pig says:

    I don;t think ellerbee was trying to rip the Dolphins
    I think he was trying to say how excited he was to play for the Saints

    If he was its kind of silly and the guy doesn’t understand NFL history
    The saints under Sean Payton are not the same team they have been in their history
    and their fans invented the brown bag and nickname as the “aint’s”
    I’m no badmouthing those fans – but when you lose they let you know it

    For a player to suggest that an organization “knows how to win” is an oxymoron
    as a player he is more responsible for the performance on the field than anyone else is

    The reality is we overpaid ellerbee and he wasn’t that good
    I don;t know what he is going forward int he NFL – but he was not very good for us, even when he was healthy

  32. Al in MIA says:

    Mike E,

    Seaweed on the Atlantic is definitely seasonal (at least in Miami it is), however, not sure how it works out in other places along the Carribean.

    There was a ton of it off the beaches where my resort was located in Playa Del Carmen.

    Some people told me that there is seaweed collecting machines in some places to help deal with it at these resorts but still, there was much of it.

    There are some other spots along the riviera Maya where it doesn’t accumulate as much but it seems to be an issue there.

  33. The Flying Pig says:

    If he didn’t directly say it
    I don;t want to read into it
    especially if he spent the weekend, trying to explain to people that its not what he meant

    • stangerx says:

      I’m not blaming him cause I think he is right (not on the know how to win part, but the fan base). Believe he just spoke his true mind on it. It’s the penalty you pay for living in a place fans of other teams want to come to. At the same time, it’s one of the reasons that FA thinks playing in South Florida is a cool idea too.

  34. Al in MIA says:

    Issue with Ellerbe was scheme fit. He had little to no experience as a 4-3 MLB at the pro level. In fact, his size and speed combo made him a solid 3-4 ILB but he didn’t necessarily prove he could be a 4-3 MLB which requires a bit more muscle in dealing with opposing OL & FB. In a 3-4 as we all know, the DL in theory control the OL and create gaps for the ILB to fly through. In 4-3, DL shoot gaps and try to bust up gap assignments which leaves ILB exposed to big OL/FB guys at LOS & 2nd level.
    A secondary issue with Ellerbe was his pay in consideration to the injury risk. He had only 2 full seasons where he didn’t miss time due to injury (size issue it seemed). Yea it was bad when he got hurt but the risk was there with his playing history and it blew up in the Fins faces.

  35. Ken says:

    Who cares if Ellerbee was ripping the Fins or not. He is gone and thus dead to me. LOL.

  36. Mike E. says:


    It’s definitely common, the seaweed (sargassum) comes from the Sargasso Sea in the Atlantic Ocean. They’re just getting an usually high amount in St. Lucia at the moment. They did have tractors with seaweed removal equipment running very often. Very few people were in the ocean because it was just so full of seaweed, it looked really ugly.

  37. Mike E. says:

    LOL @ Dead to me

  38. Al in MIA says:

    Ellerbe is swimming with the fishes eh? lol.

  39. Tim Knight says:

    Naples, YAC can be deceiving. Bess used to have a good YAC average because he caught 1-3 yard passes and turned them into 6 or 7. I’d rather have a guy who can actually get open 10+ even if he only gets 2-3 YAC.

  40. Tim Knight says:

    Yeah Ellerbe can’t handle the wear and tear of playing MLB. As it stands, neither can Misi at the moment even though it was only one year. But he does have the size at 6-3 250. The problem with Misi is he plays so physical he bangs himself up no matter where he plays. I hope he has his best season ever this year. 🙂

    Pretty remarkable to see Delmas, Davis out there running around some six months after ACLs.

  50. Tim Knight says:

    Omar has an article “Ten areas of improvement for Ryan Tannehill”. I can’t read it because it’s a pay wall article but I’m sure it’s amazing. Don’t get your panties in a bunch, FFR. LOL

    I mean that’s fine but we’ll be looking for a new coach come next Jan.

  52. Tim Knight says:

    Ken, you’ve seen Thomas play one year at LG and RG in spots, and RT (for about 7-8 games) in a make shift OL that changed week to week last year. Fox actually looked good at times at RT. We didn’t re-sign him because we think he sucks.

    A big part of our issue last year that nobody talks about was Satele at center struggled against better opponents. That’s why he’s no longer here and Pouncey is back at center healthy again.

  56. Tim Knight says:

    As for the OL, it’s also May 26th in OTAs. The coaches likely want to see if Fox can handle LT to keep James at RT while Albert is out. If you see James replace him at LT it’s because he couldn’t handle it and they’ll switch while Albert is out. There’s only so much you can do at tackle. It’s not easy to load up on quality tackles when you lose your “elite” LT in Albert and have a 2nd year guy in James as your next best option even though he’s pretty good.

    Believe in John Benton, he’s produced good O-lines everywhere he’s been. Last year was not only a new blocking scheme under him but a new offense under Lazor. Our 2015 OL will not be the same as last year in lineup or performance. We will be better. 🙂

    Good OTA so far. Offense has had bright spots. DL are grown men. Backup OL needs lotsa work. Starting OL decent.

    I have seen Thomas at tackle and OG and he struggled with both. He is not physical enough. He gets pushed around too often and I don’t think that changes. That is more about attitude and I think Thomas has too much Jonathan Martin in him. He doesn’t have the mean streak necessary to be on the OL.
    I also don’t know what you are saying Fox looked really good at times last year. He looked like crap when I watched him play. I was very disappointed in what I saw with him. To me the left side of the line is a major liability as currently constituted. Obviously if Albert is healthy that significantly lessens the concern but Thomas remains a major liability imo.

    Wyo, well I’m glad I took time off this holiday weekend. I’ve been off since Friday, back to work tomorrow. This was one of my mini-vacations that I take.

    Long weekend, down the shore from Friday to Sunday – set up my father-in-law’s new computer, stirred up dirt in the garden bed, helped my brother-in-law put up a screen shade on the deck, hosted a MD BBQ back home yesterday. I really needed this day to chill and that’s exactly what I’m doing. LOL

    Ken, we’ll find out if you’re right about Thomas and you might be. But I’m not writing him off on May 26th based off of one season actually playing. Paul Soliai albeit a DT/NT was inactive his first 2 seasons before becoming a good player. You never know.

    This is a guy to keep our eyes on for the 5th WR spot – 6-4 220 with sub 4.5 speed. I think we trade Matthews to complete the WR turnover. Maybe only a conditional pick based on his performance on his new team, but that would not surprise me.

    Guys you have to also take into perspective that these “reporters” have agendas too.

    • Tim Knight says:

    #Dolphins QB Josh Freeman misses another easy throw. Accuracy today is an issue for him.

    • Tim Knight says:

      I’ll pass on Barkley. I think he’s borderline pro. He also reminds me of Turtle from North Shore. LOL

      • D says:

        Barkley is better than Freeman given our offense IMO. There will be a bunch of 3rd QB candidates coming up shortly. I just think Freeman has mental issues thats going to prevent him from ever getting back even close to form. Wasting a roster spot. We probably dont keep but two anyways so might be nice to have a guy who can be stashed on the PS.

    Probably would be a 7th rounder, he was a 7th rounder and has shown some signs of ability but no big production numbers. He has the + of NFL experience, but i cant see much more than a 7th for him. If he wasnt acting like a malcontent i would keep him but to me he is nothing but a negative factor if his attitude isnt good.

  97. Tim Knight says:

    D, we’re only going to keep 2 QBs anyway. The 3rd/4th are just camp arms.

    • D says:

      Hmmm i was thinking with the Freeman pickup they might go back to a 3 QB depth system. To me thats all the more reason that the 3rd QB in camp be a PS guy so we can have our third QB stashed on PS without eating up a roster spot. Freeman isnt eligible.

      • Tim Knight says:

        I’m not focused on the 3rd string QB on the PS to be honest with you. We just made Tannehill the man, and he’s been durable. I know anything can happen but we can be competitive with Moore. After that we can find another Freeman etc. in a likely lost season.

    Dont know if he was on our board but i mentioned him a lot months leading up to the draft. I really liked him at UF he’s a powerful runner, very versatile. He went a lot higher than i expected, i had him pegged for 5th-6th round and wouldn’t have liked to have gotten him with one of our 5th but Redskins apparently saw the pluses in him.

  110. BoulderPhinfan says:

    I’m not bashing him. I just don’t think he’s NFL starter material and you make it sound like this is his first camp. The guy hasn’t shown he can play for 2 years. Maybe this is the year but going into the season with that big IF is a mistake and I’ve been saying it all off season.

    James Walker @JamesWalkerNFL · 1h 1 hour ago
    I don’t like to focus too much on trench play without pads. But the #Dolphins’ offensive lines are not providing a lot of clean pockets.

    Omar Kelly @OmarKelly · 11m 11 minutes ago
    However, the Dolphins D-line dominance was the story of the day. And it wasn’t just the starters. 3rd teamers feasted too.

  113. Ken says:

    Dallas Thomas is a decent back up because he can play both OT and OG. Not particularly well but he is a body that can play multiple spots. If you need him to spell a player in the game or for a spot start or 2 he is a nice piece to have on the bench but if he is going to be a starter I think he is ill suited for that role.

  114. Tim Knight says:

    We need to hit on a guy like Jamil Douglas at LG where he just comes in and takes over and never gives it up until he’s a UFA. We need a Harry Galbreath type. We got him in the 8th round in 1988 and he made the all-rookie team. Started for 5 seasons with us before he hit FA.

  116. The Flying Pig says:

    that OTA concludes the season
    The OL sucks verifying everyone’s worst fears

    Thanks for playing the 2015 season in one day more than three months before the games are even played

  117. D says:

    I dont know that Thomas is or is not a potential starter. Last year in OTA’s he got beat by Gerald McCoy and there arent many people who wouldnt get beat by that guy. He also has spent entire OTA’s practicing at LG and got moved to RG right before the pre-season games. Again, im not convinced he IS the best LG candidate on our team, but i am saying its hard to count the guy out when he has never been able to be left at his natural position in entire time here. They have jostled him around so much its not surprising his development has been stunted.

    I am optimistic about Jamil Douglas, and Turner, i hope they all are ready to go. I really dont care which of the two comes in and fills the OG spost as long as we field the best players available. My argument is and continues to be how you count out Thomas and yet are seemingly assured of Douglas or Turner, when you have 0 clue about them.

    Turner struggled last year, he also despite the “need” at several positions on the OL last year, never really cracked the lineup, how does that boost your confidence more. Jamil Douglas is a rookie. How does a rookie with 0 playing experience boost your confidence more. My argument isnt that Thomas is better is that at this point you guys have no argument anyone else is either. You just need to let things play out before casting doubt on any of these guys and preferably they all are good enough so we wind up with a surplus of talent instead of a deficit.

    • stangerx says:

      Maybe I’m just a pawn of the press, but seems they are strong on Turner. And they did draft Douglas and a couple FA Gs with starting experience. Plus unlike the other guys……I’ve seen Thomas play.

    “One thing of note: Quarterback Ryan Tannehill tried one deep pass. Incomplete”

    “This is a non-contact practice. But Dallas Thomas struggled on one pass blocking play, giving up a hurry, and then collapsed to the ground on a run play only a couple of repetitions later.”

    Im not trying to say your a media puppet Stanger, but i warn against taking any generalizations by people who’s clicks depend solely on how much they stir up the fan base. You will be able to soon enough observe the progression or lack there of, of the OL. By time we get to pre-season games we will know who the coaches see as our starting caliber players, and their decision will weigh heavier with me than does any of these so caller reporters. Coaches motivation is only to field the best team, media peeps is to get clicks. For ll those with little turst for the coaching staff, you can wait until the pre-season games and judge with your own eyes. This is just all misplaced anxiety for something you dont even know is broken, and judging this season off last years failures is just silly. Please lets let shit fail before you guys call it a failure.

    • Ken says:

      that’s fair. I’ll do that. You’re right that the media wants to mix shit up. They know the fans have anxiety over the o-line and they’re gonna keep harping how the o-line is getting killed by the d-line right now to get us angry

The media took it and tried to make it out like he was saying practices didnt mean shit but it was completely out of context. If you watched the whole interview he was just trying to say, here we are after a really disappointing loss, just put out of the playoffs, i just lost a close friend, im at the center of trade rumors and you want to talk about my practice habits…. lol such and awesome interview.

        I did find something very ironic and funny about the HBO documentary, at the very end of the documentary while credits were rolling there was a little clip of a young Iverson giving a motivational message to kids wanting to be like him and he said, well the one thing you have to do is practice practice practice lol…..for the guy who would eventually be somewhat defined by his skipping of practices lol.

        Yes they are, especially if you get the legit 4WD, selectrac, or whatever they call it these days. Wheelbase doesn’t adversely affect it in snow, unless you’re talking about rolling over.

  156. Mike E. says:


    That one appears to have a pretty short wheelbase as well. Wyo will not approve!

  157. Rockphin says:

    oh for Christ’s sake!

    One thing of note: Quarterback Ryan Tannehill tried one deep pass. Incomplete (From Mondo)

    Are we going to keep track all fucking offseason!!??

    nope, you do not disgrace black beans by putting them in a burrito. if they are not made cuban style why the fuck bother.

    • olddolphan says:

      POINT WELL TAKEN,FFR!! – – Last time I loaded up on black beans my wife was out of town visiting relatives. Had a home made concoction of black beans and rice in one bowl and some ground sirloin mixed with peppers, onions and tobasco sauce in the other bowl. 2 16-oz. Colorado Kool-aids later the dogs were running for cover!!!

    Piggy———Piggy, Go red or go home.Stranger is right about black. I can’t even pay my grandkids to wash my black car every week for 5 bucks.

  163. finfanrob says:


    i was going to head right up there by you to catch some lutz little league playoff games but i doubt they are going to get them in tonight. might still try it when this passes if it does

  164. finfanrob says:

    piggy going black

  165. finfanrob says:


    try that little cuban place at the end of lutz lake fern road. black beans are just so so. only my mom and one other person i know can make real cuban black beans good. but the pork is worth the visit. hell even piggy would eat it

    • olddolphan says:

      I know exactly where it is!! But I may wait until Mrs. OD is out of the house for a few hours before trying it.

  166. Rockphin says:

    It’s very early, but Miami’s first-team linebackers to start practice were Koa Misi in the middle and Jelani Jenkins and Chris McCain on the outside. Second-year linebacker Jordan Tripp also rotated with the starters at different times in practice. This is an area of concern for Miami and young players such as McCain and/or Tripp must step up into big roles. The Dolphins cut former starter Philip Wheeler and traded another former starter in Dannell Ellerbe this offseason.

    Oh, dear football gods on high please ………………………………

  167. Rockphin says:

    #Dolphins offensive line at today’s OTA:
    LT Fox, LG Dallas Thomas, C Pouncey, RG Billy Turner, RT James

    Damn I wish Tannehill was left handed…….

    So Rob is now into little leaguers, do they have cheerleaders?

    nope, but there maybe be some hot ass single moms.

  169. wyoming85 says:

    The longer the Wheel base the less chance of swapping ends when your going down the street!

    believe me I’m used to going with a short base! 😦

  170. steveccnv says:

    WTF is up with our WR jersey numbers.
    Stills 10
    Parker 11
    Landry 14
    Jennings 15
    Matthews 18

  171. steveccnv says:

    The king has spoken, he said welcome to Clev. Hawks, now go home, we’re done here.

    Four young Dolphins thrust into potential starting roles (Thomas, Turner, Taylor, McCain), plus Fins OTA chatter:

    • steveccnv says:

      Here’s one positive about Thomas playing guard: Though he yielded seven sacks in 333 snaps at tackle last season, he didn’t give up any in 362 snaps at guard, according to Pro Football Focus.

      • wyoming85 says:

        I don’t remember him at Guard playing bad!

        OT? ya that was bad!!!!!!!!!

        But as young as he is I don’t really hold that against him.

        Improve young man!

      • steveccnv says:

        We all said he sucked at OT at Tenn. but was very good at guard, yet they play him at OT. WTF

  173. wyoming85 says:

    Oh and by the way Piggy!
    Oakman is a freak of nature!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I would love him in a Fins UNI!!!!!!!!!!!!
