    Tannehill: “It’s Been A Great Offseason”

    Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill speaks with the media about his mindset as the offense wraps up their work at this week’s minicamp in Davie. Don’t miss Tannehill’s comments about the hunger and drive of…

    The hype this yr is more than just Fins Fans. Just looked at a Fantasy Football draft kit, and are boys are looking favorable, except WR where having 4 guys seems to hurt. In yrs past we were lucky if we had anyone worth starting week to week.

    It’s just FF, but it does have some meaning, like our D being ranked 8th.

    • steveccnv says:

      Kicker is one position that relates more to your offense than how good the kicker is, but other than that touches is the only other thing I can think of that discredits their rankings.

    Man I haven’t played guitar in awhile for all sorts of reasons. I forgot about the calluses that happen when you get back at it. I’ve got blisters on my fingers! 🙂

    Is there anything The Beatles haven’t done? LOL

  8. steveccnv says:

    Here’s an article about Winston probably going to be a bust, that’s as bad an article as I’ve ever seen, it’s based on some stats of guys that he most compares to such as Andy Dalton and Stinky Sanchez. Does anyone here think he compares to either of these guys?

    It’s like this guy thinks he’s going to be a bust, then pulls some stats out his ass to make his point.

    Paul McCartney and the Beatles got it way before most of us did.

    Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders- Happy Fathers Day

  15. Mike E. says:

    Happy Fathers Day!

  16. Tim Knight says:

    Well then happy father’s day Mike E, and to all the dads.

  17. Ken says:

    Happy Father’s day FUers

  18. Ken says:

    My kids, well my wife but my kids idea, got me a kindle for Father’s day. I am pretty psyched. I love reading but never really used a Kindle before. Can’t wait to get started.

  19. Ken says:

    I don’t know if Winston will be a bust or not but I don’t look at him and see Sanchez or Andy Dalton. The guy he most reminds me of is Roethlisberger. He has the same type of size, hangs in the pocket, I have seen him shake off tacklers and has a big arm.

    • Tim Knight says:

      He has talent. Can he mature is the only question about him.

      • Ken says:

        My thoughts about him exactly. His biggest drawback as a player is ball security. Some times he makes those head scratching throws that you sit there and say what the hell was looking at. But then he has those moments when he is lights out and makes the near impossible play. He is a gun slinger much like Favre, there are similarities there as well.

  20. The Flying Pig says:

    Just remember

    Rothlisberger is not the best example of an upstanding citizen
    What Winston was accused of isn’t much different than what Rothlisberger was accused of
    And Winston was significantly younger

    The big question isn’t maturity
    So many athletes lack it coming into the league
    It’s whether Winston is given the same chances Rothlisberger was

    And in not suggesting that if he is or isn’t it’s the right way to go
    I would just hope they are both treated the same way

    • Ken says:

      I was thinking the same thing. He reminds me of Rothelisberger on and off the field.

      • Tim Knight says:

        I also don’t want to link the two like that. Two different people. Hopefully both are done with the bad nonsense.

  21. The Flying Pig says:

    I’m just saying
    Rothkisberger is obviously no saint

    Despite Winston off field issues
    His coaches say good things about his practice habits and he is obviously football smart
    I’m not sure maturity is the right word for what he is lacking
    He takes football very seriously
    I’m not sure he takes anything else seriously

    People won’t tolerate bs from him though out of the gate
    But if he is squeaky clean for a couple of years
    And he has a misstep – I don’t think it will derail his career

    It will just be an embarrassment to the Bucs
    I’m glad he is not our qb for the same reason I wouldn’t want rothkisberger or Vick as a qb

    • Tim Knight says:

      No I’m not bashing him at all. I do think he probably rides with a bit of that cocky big man on campus attitude and allows that to get carried away. But he is a good NFL QB prospect no doubt. Hard worker and is good in the classroom. Big guy, big arm and a knack for making big plays. We’ll see.

    • steveccnv says:

      I don’t really care what players do off the field, except how it affects them on the field, and their status to play, based on NFL rules.

      The NFL is a barbaric game, yet they want these guys to be role models. Football doesn’t have to be so rough. We talk about the pussification of the NFL by not allowing hits to the head, and the hitting of defenseless receivers, but what about the guys that have already been tackled, that get cheap shotted a second or two after the whistle, or the guys about to go out of bounds that get creamed. Sure they call some of these from time to time, but why do they allow these guys to try and knock someone into tomorrow instead of just tackling them.

      Money, greed and giving the people what they want is the flavor of the NFL, and that’s fine, but don’t try to make these guys something they aren’t to make the league look better.

      Bottomline is if you want a pussificated league take out all the unnecessary/dirty play and extend the fines/suspension to those that don’t comply, if you want a barbaric league, then tone down the fines/suspension and don’t bring the off the field issues into consideration.

  22. steveccnv says:

    The big rape and the big fake off the field. On the field what I see in Winston is the same thing I see in Luck. Both are deadly when the game is on the line, there sense of urgency is unsurpassed.

    We’ve seen 2 versions of him, the first was the one that was on a very good team, that he made great. The second was the one that was on a slightly above average team, that he made very good. He has that look in his eye (the eye of the tiger) that he’s going to get it done no matter what .

    I’d be shocked, if he didn’t succeed in the NFL. It may not be in Tampa, but it will be somewhere.

    My point on listing the link above was not about what I think of him, it was about the shoddy logic behind the article. Using generalized stats of past QBs that really have nothing in common with him other than a few stats in college, where the stats don’t translate to success in the NFL.

  23. steveccnv says:

    The fans that say, well this guy raped/hit a women, so he shouldn’t be allowed to play… Enough with the holier than though BS, since when are the fans the judge or executioner? Leave the off the field stuff to the law, if a guy is out of jail he should be allowed to play.

    If we get a DUI do we get suspended at work without pay? The problem with today’s society is everyone, if they want to, can know everything everyone does in public.

    I don’t condone any of this off the field BS these guys do, it’s just not my business. You take these guys out of the NFL and what do they do? Get in trouble with the law, but if they had stayed in the NFL they’d more likely ti be better citizens.

  24. steveccnv says:

    One thing I like about our running game is the fact that RT gives every running play the look that he make keep the ball himself. It used to drive me crazy when Marino stuck the ball out there 3 seconds before the handoff. Don’t give away the play before it happens and the D may have to delay, which is enough to make the play a positive one.

  25. The Flying Pig says:

    I don’t want them to be role models Steve
    And I don’t care for the NFL legislating off field behavior

    I just don’t really want to root for a rapist or dog killer

    It’s nice to root for a player you actually respect too

    ‘Marino stuck the ball out there 3 seconds before the handoff. Don’t give away the play before it happens and the D may have to delay, which is enough to make the play a positive one.’

    lol, yep. marino’s play action passes were as about as believable as a stripper giving you a lap dance cause she really really really likes you.

  28. getterdone says:

    Winston? Really? LOL
    I’ve been on record before saying I didn’t think he or Mariota will become much in the NFL.
    Sooo glad it wasn’t our time to draft a QB early in the 1st round.

    Go Tanny!

    • Tim Knight says:

      I give Winston a better shot than Mariota who I think might be strictly a system QB. We’ll see.

      • getterdone says:

        I think Mariota stands a better chance cause he will be smarter reading defenses & he has a good QB guy in Whiz.

  29. getterdone says:

    BTW, hope all the Dad’s have a happy & blessed Father’s Day!

    ….and take advantage of it….make your kids clean up their rooms and/or yard! 😉

    Wait, what do you mean Rob?….

  31. Rockphin says:

    Happy Fathers Day to all you Dads! Just remember you are fathers EVERY day.

  32. Ken says:

    I think both Winston and Mariotta stand a decent chance to turn into good pros. Winston has the better chance and as I already stated he reminds me a lot of Rothlisberger. In Mariotta I see a more athletic version of Alex Smith. He is very good outside the pocket and a very good decision maker. Like Smith I think he will need time to adjust to the pro game. But overall I think these 2 QBs are better than anyone else from the 2013 and 2014 drafts.

  33. finfanrob says:


    oh i didnt mean you. every stripper loves you. trust me, they all love you. lol

  34. Tim Knight says:

    Ken, exactly!

    Only the first two years of Todd Gurley’s contract are guaranteed.
    That way the Rams are protected in case Gurley’s torn ACL doesn’t heal right. His $8.3 million signing bonus is still guaranteed. Gurley hasn’t practiced yet and is racing the clock to be ready in time for September 13th’s season opener against the Seahawks.

  36. getterdone says:

    Detroit News:
    Calvin Johnson said the Lions’ offense is “100 percent better than last year at this time.”
    It took the Lions a year to acclimate to Joe Lombardi’s new offense, but now they seem to be firing on all cylinders. It doesn’t hurt that Megatron is the healthiest he’s been in years. “I feel good, man, I’m in a good place right now,” said Johnson. “I had a whole offseason to heal up.” An obvious WR1, Johnson went over 1,000 yards last season despite missing three games with an ankle injury.
    Same is being said about Eli entering the 2nd year in McAdoo’s offense…so we can look to the same hope for Tanny & this offense in year 2 of Lazor’s system. 😀

    • Tim Knight says:

      Yep! No doubt about it. We as fans should be happy we have Tannehill rather than worry about him. He’s getting better every year. 🙂

  37. Tim Knight says:

    GD, I’m not writing off Gillislee yet but he definitely has competition with Miller at the front, the potential of Williams and the newly drafted steal in Ajayi however long he holds up. I think unless James shows something special he’s out because he has no value as a feature RB.

  38. Mike E. says:

    Very disappointed no one laughed at the Stannis meme. Fuck y’all! lol

  39. Tim Knight says:

    Sorry Mike E, ooops on my part.

  40. getterdone says:

    In case you can’t get enough of this work horse’s potential. #Ajayi

    • steveccnv says:

      He’s got great vision, knows how to setup defenders, plenty of speed for college football, and he’s a player. In other words he excels at everything DT3 struggled with. We should be able to run the ball in the 2nd half now.

      I enjoyed watching the highlights, and appreciate the post Getter, but highlights are really BS, kind of like stats can prove anyone’s point of view, highlights can make anyone look good. What I want to see is one game every play a player is on the field, that way you get the good with the bad.

  41. getterdone says:

    WOW, clutch 2 out pinch hit taking Teheran out of game after 7 innings of 1 hit shutout baseball.
    Braves now up 1-0, going for the sweep.

  42. getterdone says:

    Damn it, Alex Torres got out of a tough bases loaded jam after walking 2….ugh

  43. getterdone says:


    • getterdone says:

      We got lucky on Cuddyer hitting into a dbl play. Johnson sucks from the bullpen, is not our regular closer who was being rested after closing the Fri & Sat’s games….whew, lucky to get the sweep @ home vs. Mutts.

  44. steveccnv says:

    Every notice while watching golf some fuckin’ idiot yells out get in the hole on every shot?

  45. getterdone says:

    Ajayi’s 2014 college stats game by game for ya. He had some monster games, played well on the road and check out some of the receiving stats, like vs. SEC opponent Ole Miss.

  46. Rhino says:

    Happy Father’s Day to “those who celebrate” LOL

    Wyoming, I bet you’re glad your ‘avi’ is free. 🙂 Nazareth Hair of a Dog = summer after 7th grade for me… just learning to like music. lol If I remember, was the flip side called “D.O.A.” with ambulance sounds?

    • Rhino says:

      or was it on the flip side of Love Hurts a few years later….? there is a memory in here somewhere that got squashed by college level alcohol.

  47. Rhino says:

    saw this posted on Athletics Nation recap and thought of Ken. lol Save this for future bizarre outrage:
