It’s (Preseason) GAME DAY!

It’s finally here.  We’ve waited and waited.  There has been speculation on every detail of the team, who would stay and who would go?  Who would be drafted?  We’ve discussed the big offseason  SUH-PRIZE!   We’ve discussed the players who were injured last year and are they going to be ready?  I’ve even seen discussion on uniforms.  Now we get to see the first glimpse of  our 2015 MIAMI DOLPHINS!  It’s time to say a big FU Welcome Back to Football!  It matters not to me that it’s a preseason game.  It’s a game and I’ll be happy to see it.

We’re planning on updating the blog as the day goes on with links to any information that becomes available as game time approaches.  That’s the plan, but since it’s a workday for most of us, it may or may not happen.  And seriously, most of you don’t read the articles.  You’re probably not reading this now.

    Bad throw by Moore on 3rd down

  7. The Flying Pig says:

    Moore kind of look below average
    We are going to punt now

  8. Rockphin says:

    Nice punt inside the 10 yard line

  9. The Flying Pig says:

    Ball on the he 9 yard line for Bears
    Not really very exciting in offense with Tanny and the other starters out

  10. Rockphin says:

    nice stop behind the line by Jenkins

  11. The Flying Pig says:

    Bears lose 2 yards on 1st down run
    Not even close

  12. Rockphin says:

    Suh offsides

  13. The Flying Pig says:

    Suh offsides

  14. Rockphin says:

    I love it. STUFF the run

  15. The Flying Pig says:

    2 and 6
    No gain

    I mean there is nowhere to run for the RBs

  16. Rockphin says:


  17. The Flying Pig says:

    Wake sack
    But there is a flag
    It better be holding

  18. Rockphin says:


  19. The Flying Pig says:

    2 penalties offset
    Holding on 1 tackle
    But holding in our DB
    Replay 3rd

  20. The Flying Pig says:

    Another holding call on our DB
    But bears gain 17 on a pass
    So bears 1st down

    The wake sack was worth watching again though

  21. The Flying Pig says:

    Now the bears are mid field

  22. finfanrob says:

    still giving up long first downs.

  23. The Flying Pig says:

    It’s first team offense against 1st team d btw

  24. The Flying Pig says:

    The defense was dominant early
    But now they don’t look so good

  25. Rockphin says:

    Boy the second team D can’t stop the run like the fist team does.

    0 yds rushing while Suh was on the field. 26 as soon as he came off.

  26. finfanrob says:

    Rockphin says:
    August 13, 2015 at 8:40 pm

    Boy the second team D can’t stop the run like the fist team does.

    0 yds rushing while Suh was on the field. 26 as soon as he came off.

    lol, yeah it was when that other guy named suh they got yardage.

  27. Rockphin says:

    Bennet was open on Jenkins but Cutler cannot connect

  28. Rockphin says:

    Fourth and two and they false start HA HA HA

  29. Rockphin says:

    going for the 50 yard field goal

  30. Rockphin says:

    Douglas in at LG Turner still in at RG

  31. Rockphin says:

    Matt Moore with an entertaining scramble

  32. BoulderPhinfan says:

    If tanny goes down we’re pretty screwed

  33. Rockphin says:

    Jimmy Clausen

  34. Rockphin says:

    Nice Phillips drives his guy 10 yards into the back frield

  35. Ken says:

    BoulderPhinfan says:
    August 13, 2015 at 8:54 pm (Edit)
    If tanny goes down we’re pretty screwed
    Almost 31 other teams can say the same thing about their starting QBs. The ones that can’t are really screwed such as the Jets and the Bills.

  36. Ken says:

    No coverage for me here in CT. I didn’t buy the pre-season package to watch the game on line. I will just DVR the re-broadcast on NFL Network and watch it tomorrow. It sounds like Tanny and the offense did really well when the ones where in there.

  37. finfanrob says:

    BoulderPhinfan says:
    August 13, 2015 at 8:54 pm (Edit)
    If tanny goes down we’re pretty screwed

    yeah, wasnt very long ago some very very smart football minds were saying to bench tanny and start moore.

  38. The Flying Pig says:

  39. The Flying Pig says:

  40. The Flying Pig says:

  41. The Flying Pig says:

  42. The Flying Pig says:

    Bobby McCain just made a nice tackle in 3rd down

  43. Ken says:

    The Jets may be the only team in the league where they lost their starting QB and it is an improvement.

  44. The Flying Pig says:

    New qb in

  45. D says:

    Thomas wasn’t bad tonight. Hazel looking pretty decent even though he really should have had one of those missed completion

  46. The Flying Pig says:

    Here is the TD pass

  47. The Flying Pig says:

    We just got a defensive holding penalty call in our favor

  48. The Flying Pig says:

    35 yard catch from bethel Thompson to Byrd?

  49. The Flying Pig says:

    3rd and goal from like the 6 or soemthing

  50. The Flying Pig says:

    I guess we will take the fg

  51. The Flying Pig says:

    Here is the big play that just happened to set up fg

  52. Ken says:


    Thanks for the vid on the TD. Nice play all around.

  53. CavalierKong says:

    I really am not a fan of Sturgis

  54. The Flying Pig says:

    Chris McCain in pain right now
    Holding his leg

  55. CavalierKong says:

    shit, LB Mccain hurt

  56. The Flying Pig says:

    Rolled his ankle

  57. New Age says:

    Ugh, no injuries plz

  58. CavalierKong says:

    limping off the field but walking. Ankle sprain, rolled his ankle

  59. CavalierKong says:

    he’s looking ok

  60. The Flying Pig says:

    Clause just got killed after a pass

  61. The Flying Pig says:

    Dolphins giving bears a ton of room
    And bears getting 10-12 yard gains

  62. New Age says:

    Lol, forgot how bad preseason games are. At least the first drive was solid.

  63. The Flying Pig says:

    Will Davis breaks up a good throw

  64. Rockphin says:

    Davis lucky they didn’t call PI

  65. The Flying Pig says:

    Bears announcer claiming should have been a penalty on d
    What a homer

  66. Rockphin says:

    Nice play by Davis to make the tackle in the field and keep the clock running

  67. The Flying Pig says:

    Bears ran our of time
    No fg attempt
    Horrible play
    Horrible throw
    Receiver tackle in bounds
    They blew it
    12 secs on the clock
    No tos and they threw underneath and the receiver could not get to the sideline
    10-3 dolphins

  68. BoulderPhinfan says:

    Grapolo sucks lol

  69. Rockphin says:

    OK OK I’m sorry!!! I’m the one who wanted Sturgis and even mock drafted him in the 5th. I wanted Carpenter gone. I WAS WRONG. I AM SORRY.

    • BoulderPhinfan says:

      Carpenter had a high salary. We want cheap. You get what you pay for 🙂

    • Ken says:

      Carpenter had his problems when he was with us as well. The problem is that Sturgis has not proven to be the answer. We need to keep bringing in Ks until we find one we can count on.

  70. finfanrob says:

    New Age says:
    August 13, 2015 at 9:33 pm

    Yeah, not very fun to watch but love the 1st team reps.

    what do you mean, you dont like watching the bears future chipotle employees against the fins ones

  71. Tim Knight says:

    1st PS game, don’t get crazy. 😉

  72. finfanrob says:

    Ken says:
    August 13, 2015 at 9:44 pm

    Hey I like Chipotle

    shut up, you will like what i tell you to like.

  73. finfanrob says:

    i assume with the kicker talk. sturmiss missed again.

  74. finfanrob says:


    and i wasnt talking bad about chipotle, just about who is playing now.

  75. finfanrob says:

    Ken says:
    August 13, 2015 at 9:48 pm

    Hey if I don’t get a burrito bowl you ain’t getting anything. LOL.

    got it, burrito bowl with extra sour cream coming right up

  76. finfanrob says:

    Ken says:
    August 13, 2015 at 9:51 pm

    And don’t forget the salsa.

    you are a needy little hulk arent you. just be happy i am giving you extra sour cream.

  77. wyoming85 says:

    Gileslee with a big gain————Then fumbles!

  78. The Flying Pig says:

    Bears TD
    Guy drops it in th endzone

  79. The Flying Pig says:

    The entire DL jumped offsides

  80. The Flying Pig says:

    4th and 5 bears

    FG made

  81. New Age says:

    Pretty happy that the Bear backup QB looks better than their starter.

  82. The Flying Pig says:

    Nice catch

  83. The Flying Pig says:

    DT in

  84. Ken says:

    Alright I am going to turn in. I will catch the recast tomorrow but it sounds like I already know what I need to know. 1st unit on both sides of the ball looked really good. Whatever happens here on out is not all that important.

  85. The Flying Pig says:

    DT looses yards in 2 and 1

  86. The Flying Pig says:

    Bears can’t complete 3rd and goal from the 2
    Another FG

  87. wyoming85 says:

    Walked into the garage to get a beer and GB was playing dogpile on Crapaflow again!

  88. The Flying Pig says:

    Bethel Thompson throws an int to a LB
    Bad throw
    Bears in the redzone now
    Clause still in
    Just dumb

  89. Tim Knight says:

    The DL we have out there now has no pass rush.

  90. Tim Knight says:

    LOL listening to this crowd like it’s the super bowl. LOL

  91. Tim Knight says:

    Not impressed with our 3rd stringers at all but only a few will even make this team as backups and STs. Some of these guys have no NFL future.

    Not impressed with James.

  92. The Flying Pig says:

  93. The Flying Pig says:

    Zach Vigil is the top UDFA LB right now
    Hearing his name a lot

    • steveccnv says:

      I’ve got a bears feed, so I haven’t heard one Dolphins name called.

      • The Flying Pig says:

        I only know bc of twitter
        Vigil is gettingm some playing time
        and he has been active

        The first drive and first defensive drive
        And Zack Vigil
        That is what I’m taking away from this

        I can’t beleove how log bears played Clausen

  94. steveccnv says:

    I was impressed with Bethel Thompson.

    James should be cut now, fair catching punts with no one within 10 yrds of him, drops galore, can’t run. Bowman sucks.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Really? I think Bethel-Thompson might have ended his career. He looked over-matched to me even against 2nd and 3rd teams.

      • steveccnv says:

        He had no receivers to throw to, sure he’s not ready yet, but he showed me he could be something down the line. The pass up the seam in the 2nd qtr was impressive.

  95. The Flying Pig says:

  96. The Flying Pig says:

  97. steveccnv says:

    Bears played their guys more we’re playing in the 1st qtr with our 8th best WR.

    What happened to our Dline depth?

  98. Tim Knight says:

    1st team: Good
    2nd team: Okay
    3rd team: Horrible

    GD, Tripp being hurt helps the UDFA LBs. Vigil and Hewitt flashed to me. But hard to tell with a grouping of guys who will never play together.

  99. The Flying Pig says:

  100. The Flying Pig says:

    Did you guys notice that the Bears own announcer has called the bears
    The rangers and the jets at different times during this broadcast
    Not even the right city
    Where did they find this guy
    He doesn’t know the team he is covering

  101. steveccnv says:

    Philbin and his retarded timeouts with no time on the clock.

  102. The Flying Pig says:

    Bit it doesn’t matter

  103. steveccnv says:

    Let me repeat retarded timeout by Philbin.

  104. steveccnv says:

    Things I’ve heard, L. James having a great camp, he sucks. Dline depth is awesome they suck. Team is paper thin, absolutely correct.

    On a positive sign we crushed them with the starters.

  105. Tim Knight says:

    What everyone is missing is that the Phins’ 1st team kicked the crap out of the Bears 1st team. LOL

    Our 2nd teams were kind of even. The Bears 3rd team dominated us. LOL

  106. steveccnv says:

    bears with a lot of blitzing I didn’t see any for us

  107. CavalierKong says:

    1st string looked good. The bottom half of the roster really stinks. I’m not concerned with the score, our ones whipped their ones. Tripp injured again. At least it wasn’t Misi…yet. We started the season last year by blowing out our LB core. Hopefully our LBs can stay healthy going forward.

  108. steveccnv says:

    Just wow, you got a guy wide open and throw the fastball, what an idiot.

  109. wyoming85 says:

    Freeman with a good drive fallowed by a whiff!

  110. Tim Knight says:

    Steve, I wasn’t impressed with Moore either but remember whenever he plays during the season if RT goes down, he will always play with the 1’s.

    This is PS game 1. A notoriously bad game as it goes on. We’ve all been here done that. We’re not watching the team we’ll see during the RS 90% of the time.

    I hope Bears fans are happy with their 3rd team. LOL

  111. bookman11 says:

    Nobody will remember this game in a month. RT looked good…no major injuries..mission accomplished

  112. ukfinfan says:

    Liking what I’ve read so far about our starters. Think this could be our best, most balanced set of starters under Philbin and hopefully our O line gets stronger as the season progresses and Albert anchors it.

    What does concern me is injuries. They will happen and if they do so at positions where we have little depth, it could be another long December and another year where we fall short of the play-offs. Some teams just seem to “plug and play” with back-ups better than we do and I hope we aren’t tested too much this season.

  113. ocalahowie says:

    Till half of them go down, then we are screwed!

  114. Rockphin says:

    I feel better about our OGs this morning. Granted, Chicago’s D-line are not a group of pro-bowlers, but Thomas looked good and besides the holding penalty at the goal line Turner looked decent. He opened up a really big hole on Miller’s long run.

  115. wyoming85 says:


  116. son of a son of a shula says:

    New post up

  117. uwantwat says:

    Morning peeps! Uk & Howie injuries are always a concern but I think we are in a much better place than last year’s team.Hell we were signing street agents in the end and that as much as anything contributed heavily to us not making the playoffs.

    No need to panic until it happens and don’t forget this:


  118. Rockphin says:

    This is CLASSIC My divorce hearing is at 9am and my wife went to the wrong courthouse. We were supposed to check in at 830 and she is an hour away. Hopefully this the last time I have to deal with her shit. I hope she makes it here before they get through all the other cases.
