Dolphins Open 2015 Training Camp

The Dolphins are Camping!

The players have reported to start the 2015 season in earnest. The players arrived Wednesday 7/29 to open training camp. Devonte Parker will start his first NFL season on the PUP list meaning he could be activated anywhere from now until the 6th game of the year. All indications are that this is precautionary and he will be ready for week 1 of the season in Washington. Also added to the PUP list was S Don Jones.

Today will be the first practice session made available to the public although the players will not be in pads. Teams must be in camp for 3 days before the pads come on per the CBA.

In other player related news the Dolphins signed 3 players and released one.

“The Miami Dolphins have signed free agent defensive tackle Calvin Barnett, free agent wide receiver Kai De La Cruz, free agent tackle Chris Martin and waived defensive tackle Ellis McCarthy it was announced today.”

Chris Martin being the first UCF player on the team that I can even think of maybe now or ever but I can’t be sure. Best of luck Chris. 


Martin has been with several teams so far in his journey to enter the NFL finishing last season on the 49ers practice squad. He was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Texans following the 2014 draft. He will compete with the rest in the battle for the open Guard spots as well as for a back-up Tackle position.

The Dolphins also revealed what the throwback uniforms will look like for the December 14th Monday Nighter against the New York Giants

Nice looking uniform.

And there is grass at the newly renovated, badass looking stadium:

All we can say is best of luck to all of the players trying to make the 2015 Miami Dolphins. We wish you good health and all the best.

Suh is here, Everything is different now!

Enjoy it Dolphans!

    Wondered if the wailing had started yet. Evan Mathis supposedly signing with the falcons. Maybe still in denial or just to inconsolable to type. I’ll check back later for what should be pretty interesting discussion lol

    • manitobafinfan says:

      We obviously did not feel the need for him.. Go benton!!

    • dbolt48 says:

      I’m a big fan of Jamil Douglas. If Dallas Thomas could convert to that LG I saw at Tennessee we could have a solid OL. I have a feeling Douglas beats him out though.

  6. olddolphan says:

    Manitoba; SOOO-O-O you’re up and on the board at 5:34 central time, eh?? –Seems like when Shula first got to Miami the boys in camp got up REAL early, too. Which raises one of my biggest questions for the coming season: will this group of Dolphins be THE BEST CONDITIONED TEAM IN THE NFL??? My instincts and my eyes have told me Miami has NOT been the best conditioned team the last few years, hence the tendency to fold late in key games and late in the season, especially in December, against teams we SHOULD BEAT (Bills, Jets, etc.). –It’s time for Philbin to come out publicly and state “this team absolutely will be the best conditioned team in the league, period!”

    • manitobafinfan says:

      Yo OD: Damn work phone calls will do that.. I think they took steps toward that with the hiring of Tannenbaum.. he supposedly is Big on the Science of conditioning .. Lets hope it makes a big difference in December.. i feel quite optimistic at this point.. and as Son would say .. Suh is Here, It’s All Different… (hope i got that right)..

  7. Brian in NY says:

    I love the throwback uniforms, but does anyone else find it odd there are no logos on them?

    • Mike E. says:

      They still look better (tougher?) than the new pastel colored uni’s.

      • manitobafinfan says:

        They are pretty Sweet.. We Need More Orange !!! i guess i will head to the office now.. hope we have full electricity and no technological glitches today.. later peeps.. TC IS HERE !!!!!

  8. Mike E. says:

    Bizarre evening at Citi Field last night. Mets fan give SS Wilmer Flores a standing ovation because it was being reported that he was being traded to the Brewers. Kid tears up and gets all emotional, and remains in the game as per Manager Terry Collins. As it turns out, the deal was nixed due to concerns about Carlos Gomez’ hip, so Flores is still a Met, and the Mets still need a bat. Seems the Mets are willing to pay, so I figure it will happen somehow, with Carlos Gonzalez, Gerardo Parra or Jay Bruce. Not sure we can count on d’Arnaud and Wright finishing out the season healthy.

    • Brian in NY says:

      That was bizarre. It would have been a good trade if Gomez was healthy, but his injuries have severely impacted his production this season.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Yeah it was bizarre. That’s an example of the new information age.

    1. Lather up

    3. Philbin’s luggage lock passcode
    4. Sam brenner???
    5. McCain and Davis
    6. 1
    7. Landry?
    8. 15 (just a guess)
    9. deep threat but I think he was 3 on the depth chart
    10. wake, suh, R. jones, B Grimes, Pouncey, Albert, Jennings….that’s 7

    How did I do?

  11. Mike E. says:

    Agree on Gomez. I would have been thrilled if he was on the Mets again, but not with medical issues. One of the 3 guys I mentioned before, Parra, CarGo or Bruce may be the guy. Be shocked if we stand pat now.

  12. Tim Knight says:

    Read some Omar tweets.

    LB Depth Chart:
    SOLB McCain/Paysinger
    MLB Misi/Sheppard
    WOLB Jenkins/Tripp

    Safety Depth Chart:

    • The Flying Pig says:

      Some people are suggesting that Sheppard might be the MLB
      in that case Misi will move outside
      so it might be
      Misi – Sheppard – Jenkins
      starting for us
      if Misi stays healthy that might be a good combo

      • Tim Knight says:

        That’s not the way it is though. Maybe if the 1st team unit doesn’t pan out and we go with the best 3 LBs as the PS goes on.

  13. The Flying Pig says:

    I don;t know who Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report is
    but so far he is written a love memo to Mike Grimes and this POS piece on how the Patriots will reap revenge on the NFL in 2016


    I have news for this guy, the rest of the NFL is furious at Kraft and the Patriots too

    None of that will matter. It will just play out on the filed and the better teams will win
    but I cannot tolerate this kind of bs like they have a right to be made, they should be hanging their head in shame

  19. Mike E. says:


    Mets loved Gomez, especially Minaya. He talked about him being a key piece roaming the outfield for a decade or more, but the Twins wanted him in the Santana trade. He was actually faster than Reyes, and a very good base stealer, as well as a great defensive outfielder. he never relly made the impact he was expected to make in MIN. He has really come on the last couple of years with the Brewers.

  20. The Flying Pig says:

  21. The Flying Pig says:


  22. The Flying Pig says:

    Poor Timmy Streeter

  23. Brian in NY says:

    At this pont, I would like to have Carlos Gonzalez, but I don’t to include Nimmo, Conforto, or Cecchini. We have a good, young core of players and I’m not willing to mess with that at this point, unless it’s for a proven star.

  24. The Flying Pig says:

  25. The Flying Pig says:

  26. The Flying Pig says:

    Same play

  27. Brian in NY says:

    You have to start talking shit about more Mets players. You trashed Newenheis before he was called up, and he slammed 3 HRs in a game (only Mets player to do at home), last week you were trashing Duda, and he becomes only the second Mets player to ever hit 3 HRs at home!

  28. The Flying Pig says:

  29. The Flying Pig says:

  30. Mike E. says:

    Carlos Gonzalez is as good a player as you will find on the trade block. 25-30 HR guy with a .332 OBP, .275-320 batting average.

    • Brian in NY says:

      I’m greedy, and don’t want to give up the future!
      Also, something to make you angry: The Mets had to give up their 1st rounder to Colorado this season because of the Cuddyear signing.

  31. Brian in NY says:

    There are some posts to you above. I don’t wan’t them to get lost in between all of M13’s, er, Piggy’s posts.

  35. The Flying Pig says:

    Let’s go Douglas!!!

  36. Mike E. says:

    LOL @ Bri – I’m sure they read my stuff on a Dolphins blog. 🙂

  37. Mike E. says:

    These comments about things that happen in training camp are asinine. 1st day of camp, and Jamil Douglas has ousted Thomas, Fox is the LT, and Linkenback the RG. Yeah, OK. None of those guys will probably be starting, or at least I hope they won’t.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      It matters!!!
      Out your overreacting pants on !
      Moore looks better than Tanny today
      A lets cut Tanny

  38. The Flying Pig says:

    Wants to reanswer trivia

  39. The Flying Pig says:

    I do think things like Sturgis missing fgs
    And receivers like Streeter dropping passes matters

    There are defiantly things now that can have a huge affect on the preseason and who makes roster

  40. Mike E. says:


    If you want to get something, you have to give up something. I’m not worried about an outfield prospect. Who was the last great Mets outfield prospect that actually became a great player? I can name a bunch that didn’t. Alex Escobar, Lastings Milledge, Jay Payton, Alex Ochoa, etc. etc. etc. We’re in the thick of a pennant race, shame to waste this good pitching with a lineup that can’t score.

  41. dbolt48 says:

    @JamesWalkerNFL: #Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill is having a pretty good first day of training camp overall.
    @AbramsonPBP: That’s how practice ends — Bobby McCain intercepting Josh Freeman.

  42. Mike E. says:


    It’s fun to read this stuff, but I think you take these things with a grain of salt. I don’t think Tommy Streeter had a fighters chance of making this roster anyway.

  43. Tim Knight says:

    At least Duda seems to be coming around. He’s hit like 6 HRs in the last few games.

  44. Brian in NY says:

    Okay. I just broke the jersey curse:
    #14 for me
    #11 for my son

    Landry and Parker are going to have monster years!

    • The Flying Pig says:

      You guys will look really cool together in your WR jerseys

      Personally I think I’m going to get a throwback Suh jersey if I can

      • Brian in NY says:

        They are on sale now. I toyed with the idea of a throwback, but my son wants us to match- can’t argue with that. He’s got a Tannehill jersey from last year, and it will fit him for this season and then look like a t-shirt on him.

    • Mike E. says:

      Cool! Good choices!

  45. Tim Knight says:

    Man, there’s a lot of Mets fans calling today about last night whining and making way big of deal out of it. A trade fell through and a player was upset. Okay, everyone will get over it. Carlos Gomez also thought he was going somewhere too. It happens.

    • Brian in NY says:

      Get over it.

    • Mike E. says:

      I felt for the kid, I really did. He’s been with the Mets since he was 16, and he’s 23. It’s been like home to him.

      • Tim Knight says:

        I get it, but it’s over and I’m sure he had teammates and people console him and tell him it’s the nature of the business etc.

        I’m talking about the whiny fans making a big deal out of it. I’m about ready to put music on. LOL

      • Brian in NY says:

        I meant the fans. I felt bad for Flores.

      I read a piece of the decision already
      bringing the case is Minnesota is pretty blatant forum shopping

      They are going to get laughed out of federal court IMO

      • CavalierKong says:

        Agreed. I wouldn’t be surprised if the request for an injunction is denied and this thing gets decided before the end of preseason.

    Branden Albert said even though he is ahead of his schedule, he is not sure if he will be ready for Sept 13 opener

      That’s why Fox is working exclusively at LT. I’m wondering who else will be working at tackle because Albert, James and Fox are the only listed tackles on the team. I know we have a bunch of guys who have and can play tackle, I’m wondering who they will be though.

    Benjamin Allbright ripping into Omar Kelly big time 😂😂😂

    @AllbrightNFL: Whenever I did camp tours, I’d read the practice reports from some of the beat guys, and wonder whose practice they were watching.

    @AllbrightNFL: @PatrickClaybon There’s one “popular” Miami media guy who dislikes Tannehill and has alternately claimed Garrard and Moore were “great”

    @AllbrightNFL: Are we really going to go through this stupid “Matt Moore looks better than Ryan Tannehill in practice” from reporters w/ an agenda, again?

    Its really cool to watch

  64. dbolt48 says:

    Sorry Mike, work interruptedy chance to respond, but Tim updated you on Allbright. Very well respected guy.

  65. Tim Knight says:

    You know what’s funny about the Jets promos, they use the phrase: stronger, faster, greener. Do they know what green means when not a color? It means not really there yet or developed. LOL

    James Walker ‏@JamesWalkerNFL 6m6 minutes ago
    Will #Dolphins’ Jarvis Landry get over/under 80 receptions? http://es.pn/1VPvi9N

    • Tim Knight says:

      Over for me. I think he could end up around 100.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      I’m thinking 70+ so I will go with under
      I just think we are spreading the ball out a lot more to Still, Parker, Jennings, Cameron and the RBs

      bu I can see how Landry can easily be a 100+ catch guy
      especially if Parker is out early
      Tanny does not have Clay to rely on now

      • Tim Knight says:

        I get what you’re saying, but Landry caught 84 with Wallace catching 67, Clay 58, Hartline 39, Miller 38, Gibson 29, Sims 24, Williams 21 etc.

        I think the main lineup will be Landry, Stills, Jennings, Cameron and Miller with Parker, Sims and a couple of the other backs rotating in and out, so I think 100 will be pretty easy especially because of how good his hands are.

  67. Tim Knight says:

    The Jets, what it means to be green. Idiots! LOL

  68. Mike E. says:

    I think over 80 for Landry, but that depends on Jordan Cameron and Devante Parker. If Cameron/Parker are healthy the entire season, I say lower for Landry.

    Why in the world would we support the Patriots in any endeavor? Why would we believe them after their history and Tom’s actions? It just amazes me these guys still have jobs.

    Five thoughts on Dolphins first day of camp from @DaveHydeSports http://fw.to/kg70J3k

    • Tim Knight says:

      The guard position is not the only reason Tannehill has been sacked and hit so often. It’s been all along the OL, TE and the backs, him at times and receivers not being where they’re suppose to be. People who think signing Mathis ends all of that are kidding themselves.

      • dbolt48 says:

        Yep, it’s like watching a group in ballet performing together. You yawn when everything is in sync, but once you see one dancer screw up a part you’re like “What a fuckup.” Yes I watch ballet because my daughter is in dance and I’m stuck inside on a great Sunday in June for 5hrs watching that shit just to be interested in my daughters 15minutes on stage 😐

  76. BoulderPhinfan says:

    IT sounds like from everything I read that the 2nd CB position is pretty weak as well. Taylor seems to be a wasted 2nd rounder. If he can’t become a quality starter in his 3rd year when is that gonna happen?

    • dbolt48 says:

      From play by play it sounds like he got beat up by Preston, but held his own vs Jennings. I’m just happy he didn’t injure himself walking to the porta john

    I think to take it a step further, aside from being our rival, every NFL owner should be siding with the NFl right now

    Also I love Ross’ statement about supporting the NFL. Get yourself in the sweetheart Chair mr. Ross. Kraft doesn;t want that chair anymore…

    • New Age says:

    I thinking if Landry catches 100, its no ideal and a lot of those catches will be very short passes

    Did you guys not read my earlier post. It’s being said Mathis is signing with Atlanta. So can you guys just cry and get it over with?

  85. stangerx says:

    Pig — just read why the NFL was filing something in NYC.

    The Union filed an appeal on behalf of Brady under the CBA with their favorite judge in MN. The NFL filing was to transfer the case to NYC on convenience grounds……and hey NFL is in NYC and Brady lives in Mass. It was approved.

    So it was actually a responsive motion rather than an initial one. Reporters.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      right the NFl filing was to change forums

      The way it was reported was as a preemptive filing to a lawsuit…lol
      Like hey, Fed Ct…do you agree with us…I was like WTF

      I’m telling you
      The Fed Court is going to laugh Brady and the NFLPA out of Court on this one

  86. finfanrob says:

    ok lunch time over. time to call my filipino girl friend. unfortunately not what you guys think, fucking intuit support. this overseas support sucks big time

  91. Tim Knight says:

    Boulder, Grimes thinks Taylor is extremely talented he’s just had injury issues. I thought Taylor was impressive last year before he went down.

    • BoulderPhinfan says:

      I don’t know if he’s starter material. I saw him get beat bad a couple of times last year also. What else is grimes gonna say? I think taylor sucks and has no business on this field?

      I hope you’re right. I just hope we find a good 2nd CB out of the group we have.

      • Tim Knight says:

        Grimes doesn’t have to say anything. Why is it always one extreme or the other? He’s either great or horrible, no in between. He could have said he’s coming along, working hard, etc.

        All CBs get beat at times.

  92. Tim Knight says:

    For Dbolt. Read the comments of people offended. LOL

    @nflnetwork: Will Ryan Tannehill be in elite QB territory this year? #NFLTrainingCamp

  94. BoulderPhinfan says:

    All I’m saying I wasn’t too impressed with taylor last year when he was on the field. He was average at best.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Only allowed a 10.2 YPCA which is pretty good for a corner. He’s physical, can tackle and support the run.

    • dbolt48 says:

      I thought the Buffalo Thursday night game was a good indicator of Taylor’s game. He needs more consistency, but he gave a dominant effort that game.

      • BoulderPhinfan says:

        consistency is what separates good from average/bad. All players in the NFL have enough talent to have one good game. I’m not saying taylor can’t be a starter but so far I haven’t seen the consistency to be one. This is his 3rd year. Its now or never IMO.

    Bill Belichick: Hon, how about a little sex?
    Wife: I covered that last week.
    Bill: But this is this week.
    Wife: I’m preparing for bed tonight.
    Bill: So no sex?
    Wife: I’ve covered that already.
    Bill: But..
    Wife: I’ve covered that already
    Bill: Tomorrow?
    Wife: Tomorrow is tomorrow. I’m preparing for bed tonight. The only thing I’m concerned with is bed tonight.
    Bill: *mumbles* What a dick.

    We know where he gets it.

  96. No one said Ross is cheap and who cares if he got the biggest FA;until we win I do not give a rat’s ass how much money he spends on the team or the stadium.

  97. Also, hi Tim and peeps!!! Been super busy at work on a big case set for trial. Hope all is well….catch you folks again soon.

  98. Brian in NY says:

    Taylor was really starting to come on in his last two games before he got hurt (again). I think if he can stay healthy then he will start opposite Grimes.

    • BoulderPhinfan says:

      lets hope. We really need one of these guys to step up and be a solid contributor opposite grimes.

  99. Mike E. says:

    Ugh! Familia just blew another save, the Mets were up 7-5 with 2 outs in the 9th, and now it’s 8-7 Padres. 😦

  100. Mike E. says:

    He had an 0-2 count on Norris with 2 outs, and no one on base too. That’s killer.

  101. Brian in NY says:

    It seems like the Mets are destined for .500. Whenever they can actually score runs, the other team does as well.

  102. Tim Knight says:

    Brian, oh yes Parnell allowed the grand slam.

    • Brian in NY says:

      Thanks. He’s been pitching like dog shit lately. I think he’s done unless he can reinvent himself like Isringhausen. His velocity has been way down since returning from injury.

  103. Tim Knight says:

    Brian, Mike just went outside and started bashing his neighbor’s mailboxes. LOL

      Not many guys left to like. LOL

      I like what Joe Beningo once said, bro, in my next life I don’t want to know anything about sports. LOL

      • Mike E. says:

        Understandable. If you think about it, more often than not you’ll be let down. Much more often with the Mets and Dolphins. lol

  108. stangerx says:

    Mike E — going to get my eyes checked on Monday. It’s time…….fine print is hard to read these days.

    Any advice?

    • Mike E. says:

      You’re going to need reading glasses young man. No big deal, it’s the natural progression in life.

      • stangerx says:

        That’s what I figure. Just like you my Doc said “you are almost 50” and shrugged.

    • Tim Knight says:

      That started for me about 2 years ago I think. I need readers for menus and small type like directions on pop tarts, lol. I never wore glasses before.

  109. Tim Knight says:

    LOL, Mike directions for pop tarts is a bit by comedian Brian Reagan about why would you need to put directions on a box of pop tarts.

    Defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh (93) eludes guard Billy Turner as he rushes the quarterback during Day 1 of Miami Dolphins training camp Thursday, July 30, 2015 in Davie.


    • Tim Knight says:

      A big reason why Omar doesn’t like Tannehill. He has to cover a team where the QB is a good, humble white dude with a pretty blonde wife. They’re not Tupac enough.

    • Try Pod says:

      No luck involved. You can look like the Kapersniffer and still get the hot girl. What you need to do is get one of those nfl qb jobs, which takes skill, not luck (though for some, a little luck doesn’t hurt).

    You know what’s funny, Brady says he always destroys his former cell phones yet Wells obtained one of his where the texts went public of Brady frantically texted the ball guys 3 days after the allegations came out. I’m sure Brady regularly texts those guys during the week. LOL

  114. Tim Knight says:

    You know what, I didn’t see how upset Wilmer was last night. I just saw a clip of him out in the field and I felt really bad for him.

    I thought since he refused to make his phone available that the ones that have been made public came from the person he was texting with. .

    • Tim Knight says:

      Maybe so, but I heard on the radio that Wells did have access to one of them so maybe I’m confusing the two.

  118. getterdone says:

    Tim, I caught your post earlier as I was perusing thru the blog.
    I want to correct ya on the 4 DT’s you mentioned.
    Suh – Mitchell – Phillips – Mosley (not Johnson)
    Francis & Johnson will be battling for back up scraps…IMO.

    • Tim Knight says:

      No it was reported today that Phillips and Johnson were working as the 2s not that it’s set in stone just how TC started. I’m not sold Mosely even makes the team. I think he’s a fallback if the young guys don’t perform at a higher enough level.

    It’s a good time without saying anything. When I do say something it’s that New Kids on The Block came from there and they can’t erase that either. #(*)📱💥

  120. getterdone says:

    I dunno Tim, Suh kinda campaigned for Big Mo to be signed…they played well together in Detroit.

    • Tim Knight says:

      I know but Suh didn’t really campaign for him, just supported him. Tannenbaum had Mosely with the Jets. He’s a 32 year old run stopper only, 4 career sacks. I think he’s a fall back option but we’ll see. He only signed a one year deal for $1M with $80,000 guaranteed.

  121. Tim Knight says:

    Catch you folks later.

  122. The Flying Pig says:

  123. getterdone says:

    Dolphins signed DT C.J. Mosley to a one-year contract.
    It’s a solid depth signing for Miami. Mosley graded out as Pro Football Focus’ No. 26 defensive tackle last season, receiving positive marks both against the run and pass. He’s good friends with Ndamukong Suh and should slot in as the Dolphins’ No. 3 defensive tackle behind Suh and fellow starter Earl Mitchell.

    • getterdone says:

      BTW, Mosley has 14 sacks, not 4.

      • Tim Knight says:

        Okay I read it wrong back when we signed him. 14 sacks over 10 years. Woo hoo!!! LOL

        We’ll see how it plays out. If Francis and Johnson have good camps and preseasons who would you rather keep, young guys with upside or a guy on his way out?

  127. CavalierKong says:


    Goodell’s decision on Brady’s appeal brings up the point that Brady’s “regular destruction of cell phones when switching them” (paraphrasing) isn’t credible because he was able to provide the phone he used up until November 2014 when he switched to the now infamous deflategate phone. Why was that phone not destroy, lol. It’s a joke

    • CavalierKong says:


    • stangerx says:

      It all apart even more cause that was the phone in question. You at least put It in your safe just in case.

      • CavalierKong says:

        Yeah, the idea you’d destroy something that not only doesn’t incriminate you but by its being non-incriminating could exonerate you is ludicrous at best, lol.

  128. The Flying Pig says:

    My response

    • CavalierKong says:

      Lol, for as stupid as that is, it’s actually not as outlandish as some of the crackpot theories I’ve seen Patriots fans coming up with.

  129. Mike E. says:

    When you’re innocent, you shove the evidence proving your innocence in the accusers face. Brady not only didn’t do that, but he refused to release any info at all. GUILTY!!!

    • stangerx says:

      Read today he actually did give them who he had called. Makes me think there was something on his actual phone that he really didn’t want out there. Maybe some bad pics.

      • Mike E. says:

        What about the thousands of text messages they wanted?

      • Brian in NY says:

        I heard am interview Ted Wells gave and he said “I told him I didn’t even need to take the phone, just SHOW me the text messages.”

      • Mike E. says:

        Exactly. Whatever he gave them was not really what they were asking for. He’s a lying CHEAT!

  130. steveccnv says:

    I find it funny that the cheats fans that came out for their first practice were cheering for brady, but I didn’t hear anything about them being the champs.

  131. Brian in NY says:

    Hey Mike, I only have another 5 weeks off!

    • Mike E. says:

      You deserve it man. I should have been a teacher. I still think of finishing up my degree and getting my Masters.

      • Brian in NY says:

        You would have made a great teacher with your demeanor Mike. The students would have loved you. Teaching has changed so much recently that it’s taken a lot of the fun out of it. I’m sure you have heard from your sis.

      • Mike E. says:

        It sure has changed. My sis is happily retired now. 🙂

      • Mike E. says:

        Thanks Bri – I think I would be/have been a good teacher as well

    • Brian in NY says:

      I remember her telling me she was going to retire when I met her. Good for her!

  132. Tim Knight says:

    Yeah the NFL and Goodell really want this cheating scandal linked to the champs because it’s so good for the game. Some of the stuff people are saying is so dumb it’s hilarious.

    • Brian in NY says:

      I can’t even read it or listen to it. I am beyond sick of it. If Brady is found guilty, I’d tack another 4 games on and tell him “We conducted an independent investigation, and we found out you are a douchebag as well. Four more games.”

  133. Tim Knight says:

    I really hope the opponent fans berate the Pats in every city with chants of cheaters, phony champs and shit like that. It would be great.

  134. Tim Knight says:

    Kong, Pats fans hate that their team’s legacy is tarnished and it’s awesome. LOL

  136. olddolphan says:

    Tomorrow’s a big day for your’s truly. Got the news last week that my hearing’s so bad that my current hearing aids can’t really help me. So, tomorrow, my audiologist will power-up a new, high tech, stronger pair of hearing devices. I’l also have to wear a special device that hangs from my neck and processes sound INTO my hearing aids. Another extra device will be required if I’m in an older building that’s not properly wired for sound (about 1/4 to 1/2 of buildings are NOT). All this is a result of my service to my country AND, specifically, too much time at an artillary base. –The VA in Austin, Texas, politely declined my attempt to get help. Apparently the Army was SUPPOSED to test my hearing when I out-processed, but they failed to do so. So all this is on ME! God-bless Richard Nixon!! Believe me, though, I’m VERY thankful I only lost most of my hearing in the army. I’m very lucky. Many of my buddies weren’t nearly as lucky.
    MISS GIGI: GREAT to see you back on the board!! TOTALLY AGREE that all the MONEY Ross has spent on the stadium and on players pales by comparison to his failure to bring us a PLAYOFF WINNING FOOTBALL TEAM!! BTW, GIGI, a source in the NFL says Ross’s upgrades of the stadium have INCREASED his chances of landing a Super Bowl BUT his lowering of the stadium’s capacity by about 11,000 seats has DECREASED his chances of landing a Super Bowl!!
    DR. RHINO: GREAT to see your comments, too!! –They are much appreciated!!
    MIKE E.: I’ll be rooting for your Mets to win the NL East, now that the Marlins are totally out of the chase! HOW CRAZY would a Yankees-Mets World Series be??
    CAN’T believe I’m actually LOOKING FORWARD to NFL exhibition football. Bring on the piggies, er, pigskins!!

    • Try Pod says:

      I don’t know how many times you have applied for benefits, but I have heard more than once just about everyone gets turned down the first time. I have been told you have to submit twice (not that I am a know-it-all, but I am a vet rep working under a DOL grant administered by the state of KY, and I speak frequently with national and state VA reps.

    • Tim Knight says:

      I hope the new hearing aids work well for you, OD. My aunt who’s 86 just had some new procedure done to improve her hearing because hers was bad. Not totally sure how well it’s worked yet.

      • Mike E. says:

        Best of luck OD! Listen to TryPod, and see if you can submit a claim, and possibly get something back.

    Brian, it wasn’t Parnell who gave up the grand slam, he just loaded the bases. Hansel Robles gave up the homer.

  138. Brian in NY says:

    Reports are Reds are willing to trade Jay Bruce straight up for Wheeler.

    • Mike E. says:

      If we can’t get Carlos Gonzalez, or Gerardo Parra for less, I think we should do it.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Do it! He’s gonna strike out a lot and not hit for average but we need a thumper. What’s his contract because the rumor is money is why the Gomez deal fell through, not his hip.

  139. Tim Knight says:

    What about a rental like Cespades?

  140. Mike E. says:

    Bruce is signed through 2017, at about $12.5M, it’s $12M this year, $12.5M next year, and $13M in 2017

  141. Mike E. says:


    The Astros traded for Carlos Gomez

    • Tim Knight says:

      Well we knew we weren’t getting him anymore. I guess we have to hope for d’Arnaud to get back and stay healthy and hopefully get Wright back at some point.

      • Mike E. says:

        I know that, but it just goes to show you that someone did. I’d bet the Mets overreacted to the medical information on his hip.

      Delmas is like the glue that holds that group together. We already know what to expect from Grimes. Jones’ season was overshadowed by his four game suspension for PEDs. When he returned to the team he went on a tear and ended up with 70 tackles (2nd on the team), 7 passes defended, 3 interceptions, and a sack.

  148. Ken says:

    Now if only Mario Williams would get caught for bestiality or something we just might win the division
