Welcome to Ask Mike – 2015 Season Week 3

ASKMIKELogo

from O Rob

Q – Mike 
do you think the fact that our unbalanced offense that cant control the LOS or TOP due to the lack of a consistent running game puts great pressure on our defense. 

is our Offensive philosophy an all around team killer

Here’s the thing Rob, and I think it’s ironic too, and I’ll explain why.

For years here in Miami, we haven’t had a legit QB. I yearned for one, as many Dolphins fans also did. We lamented seeing other teams with accomplished QB’s get into the playoffs year after year, using aerial attacks that most teams couldn’t defend.

In 2012, we finally pulled the trigger in earnest, and took a QB in the 1st RD of the NFL Draft, pick #8 to be exact. Ryan Timothy Tannehill. I was thrilled! If I’m going to be perfectly honest here, I was thrilled more with the idea of finally putting our balls on the table, and going all in for a QB, than the actual QB himself. After half-assing it for too long, specifically 2000-2011 (Post Marino), this is the list of QB’s we tried to get to the Super Bowl with. Jay Fiedler, 2nd RD pick trade disaster A.J. Feeley, Gus (I’ll concuss myself head-butting the endzone wall) Frerotte, Joey (former #3 pick overall) Harrington, Cleo Lemon, Chad (Herd LOVES him) Pennington, Chad (Markeyh LOVES him) Henne, Matt (our faithful backup QB) Moore, and then we grew a set, and drafted Tann-E-Hill in 2012.

So what’s my point here? I hoped Tannehill would finally be our savior, even though I didn’t think he was ready to assume that task as quickly as they made him. Some of that had to with Omar Kelly’s boy David Garrard turning into Joe Toledo, and injuring himself in just about any way he could off the field. So just like that, our rookie QB was pressed into service, and 3 years later, he’s still our man, one with a 4 YR, $77M contract.

OK, so back to your question. Herein lies the problem. When Tannehill first came here, our WR corps was way below par. Mind you, with Joe Philbin coming from the Packers, I’m thinking Ryan (Rodgers) Tannehill throwing to Greg Jennings, Jordy Nelson, Donald Driver, Randall Cobb, James Jones etc . . . BUT, what Ryan (Timothy) Tannehill was really throwing to was (Get a barf bag ready!) Legedu Naanee, Davone Bess, Julius Pruitt, Marlon (Son LOVES him) Moore, Jeff Fuller, Ro-boy-to Wallace. Would ANY of these guys make the cut on todays roster? Maybe Davone (M13 LOVES him) Bess, but that’s it.

Sorry, I keep going astray. So we couldn’t really be the Green Bay Packers, not with that receiving corp (BTW, the Pack also had TE Jermichael Finley who was a stud back then!) We had (Tim LOVES him) Anthony Fasano.

Damn, still straying from the question. If you remember the Green Bay Packers a few years ago, the successful Green Bay Packers, they threw the ball over the field. They had 5 legit WR’s they could put on the field at any time and spread out the defense, along with the very athletic pass catching TE, Jermichael Finley, and honestly, the run game took the back seat to this aerial attack. The Packers had 5 different RB’s, and all totaled, they finished with 1,251 yards, with Alex Green (WHO?) leading the way with 464, Cedric Benson (REALLY?) with 248, James Starks with 255. The run game was not the cog that got that machine running, it was the passing game. Receiving stats nicely distributed amongst 4 WR’s and the athletic pass catching TE. Randall Cobb led the team with 80 catches and 954 yards, 8 TD’s. James Jones with 784 yards and 14 TD’s. Jordy Nelson a close 2nd with 745 yards. The aforementioned TE with 667 yards.

I guess what I’m trying to say Rob, is that I believe this is the model that Joe Philbin is trying to recreate. The problem right now is, simply put, is Ryan Tannehill is not Aaron Rodgers. He probably never will be, but maybe he gets closer and closer as the season and his career goes on.

I can’t stand watching our offense at times, and oddly enough, after pining for what the Packers had, I want some more running, especially when it works, but alas, it appears to not be in the plans.

I think if the O-line gets better, whether #76 is involved or not, we can do better on offense, and give Tannehill more time to throw. We have a very talented receiving corps. Sub Rishard Matthews for James Jones, sub Jordan Cameron for Jermichael Finley, and sub Jarvis Landry for Randall Cobb, he’s a devastating weapon who is I believe our best receiver no matter where he plays on the field. Once Devante gets his feet wet, he’ll be more involved, and then add in Kenny Stills, and to a degree Greg Jennings. We’re a passing team, and lining up every play from the shotgun reminds you of that every time.

Right now, to fully answer your question, YES, the offense is putting pressure on the defense, but not because of the T.O.P., but because we’re not SCORING! If we had the ball for 2 minutes, and we hit pass after pass all the way to the endzone, that wouldn’t put pressure on the defense, it would do the opposite! The defense would be fired up! That’s what we need to do. Score TD’s, and THAT will take the pressure off the defense.

Q – Hopefully you get a few more questions this week and here’s one of them.

My post of the Tweet about a Tottenham franchise today is wild speculation at this stage of course – I read somewhere that the NFL wanted to sell out a full season of games before voting to move a franchise here – but if it did happen, how would this be viewed amongst the rank and file NFL fan community would you think? Do you think it would it be well received or would disapproval be the most widespread reaction?

By the way, Tottenham (and Spurs – Tottenham Hotspur by their full name) is a Jewish community and a predominantly Jewish club. My turn to ask you – would you flip flop from the Fins based on religion or are the Fins your deeper religion? 😉

Cheers
UK

I don’t think it would be well received at all by A-mur-ican football fans. I think most fans would be pissed about the extra travel, and bizarre start times. 9:30AM for a football game??? That won’t win any support from football fans here in the states. Most fans aren’t enlightened by fans from the UK as we are here, and we’re lucky to have that!

When you say Jewish club, I hope you don’t mean the players!

How about this leaflet, “Famous Jewish Sports Legends?”

I’m guessing you mean ownership of the club? Is that presumptuous and prejudiced of me to say that?

Well, even if the owners, AND players were Jewish, that wouldn’t sway me from the Dolphins, for the Dolphins have been my favorite team for since ’73, which makes it over 42 years now. Yeah, yeah, I know, some of you guys/gals on here aren’t even 42 years old, GOOD FOR YOU!

from Lee (Uwantwat)

Q – Mike
When will the coaches namely Bazooka Joe, Brain Dead Coyle and Pop Gun Lazor get fired?
Lee, Uwantwat.

Hopefully not this season Lee, because that will mean another season down the toilet for the Dolphins, and us Dolphins fans, and honestly, next year is going to be quite a challenge with our current cap situation. With Suh and Tannehill set to eat about $40M of our cap net season, it won’t be easy to make changes on the roster. We’ve already had significant turnover this year with 20+ new players on the roster, but the cap will not be our friend next season.

On the other hand, if we continue to see-saw in the win-loss column all the way 8-8, or worse, I’m sure there will be house cleaning of sorts. Not sure how high they start it, meaning does Tannenbaum go along with Hickey, or does do one or both stay, with Tannenbaum replacing Hickey, or does Mike get ejected leaving Dennis Hickey? I’m sure Joe Philbin, along with all the coordinators would be given their walking, that much is a certainty.

Let’s hope, and I mean really hope that doesn’t happen. As much as I’m not convinced Philbin is the solution, I’d like to hope he’s not the problem, and we can get into the playoffs and maybe go all the way. We just need to turn it around, get that defense playing Ndominant football, and Tannehill to take it to another level behind a solidified O-line.

PS – Hope you’re feeling well my friend, as do all of us from the FU blog!

from Stanger

Q – Is Rishard Matthews the real deal?   He lined up on the first play from scrimmage last week.  Maybe it was cause of the play called, but then he got a whole lot of play after that too.

stanger

He’s as real to the Dolphins as James Jones was to the Packers. Granted, Jones started much more quickly out of the gate in GB, but there really are a lot of similarities. First of all, they both came from lesser college programs, Jones from San Jose St., and Matthews from Nevada. Jones was drafted earlier, a 3rd RD pick of the Packers in ’07, while Rishard was drafted in the 7th in ’12. Very similar body types and size though, James Jones 6’1” 208, Rishard Matthews 6’0” 212. We’ve seen flashes of talent from Rishard from the beginning, but maybe his attitude wasn’t where it should have been. I saw Rishard play at Nevada, and this kid was dominant at times. I think now, that he appears to have matured, he’s going to get his chances, especially if he performs like he did next week. personally, I don’t care how many catches Stills, Jennings, or Parker have, it means nothing to me. All I care about is that the offense is working well. Who gets the catches is irrelevant. In 2013, Rishard was targeted 67 times for 41 receptions and 448 yards, 2 TD’s, his career best. He fell of the map in ’14, which clearly was an attitude mess, not a talent issue.

If Rishard continues to see lots of playing time (At Stills expense), it may make the trade for Stills seem bad, but it’s done, and we need to do what’s best for the team. Same goes for Devante Parker. It may look bad that Parker doesn’t get a lot of reps, but if the other guys are getting the job done, it’s not important. There’s all of the rest of his contract to look forward to. I do think Parker will get chances, as will Stills, but the best and most productive guys should get reps.

I do think Rishard is the real deal. Some guys develop slower, but his talent has always been there, he made some crazy plays at Nevada, making the Kaepersniffer look better than he really was. 🙂

from TryPod

Q – Mike E,
I can hear it already, but I’m gonna ask it anyway: does this team have to win a playoff game for Philbin to keep his job?

It’s really too early, as I assume you kind of felt it was, but I would say no. I’d say we have to make the playoffs, or maybe to be more clear, just show significant improvement. If we were to say win 11 games, but somehow not make the playoffs, I don’t think there’s a shot in hell we fire anyone. Same for 10-6. If somehow we o 10-6, absent of choking at the end, say were 8-6, win the last 2 games, but somehow get eliminated, I really don’t think anyone gets fired. 9-7 is a tough one. I suppose again, it depends on we arrive at that record, and whether we make the playoffs or not. 9-7, make the playoffs and lose a close, tough, hard fought game, you can’t fire him.

So, to answer you, I don’t think he has to win a playoff game, but it would sure help his chances if we’re in a playoff game, and show well in it, even if we lose. You have to start somewhere.

Q – Would you rather be a pork chop on Rex Ryan’s plate or a sock on Mrs. Ryan’s foot?
Do you think the Patriots or Jests lose this week?

Pigsgerald

That’s a hideous choice, it really is.  I suppose being the pork chop would be quick and painless, as opposed to Rexy caressing and slobbering for a long time, and lord knows what else he might do, so I choose the pork chop.

Unfortunately for the Dolphins, I believe both the Patriots and Jets will win this week.

________________________________________________

from Tim

Q – Is this team a paper tiger or a real tiger that hasn’t woken up yet?

I think it’s the latter Tim. I really, really do. I think they miscalculated on the O-line, specifically counting on Branden Albert, and waiting until the 4th RD to get O-line help. I hope the O-line is not our achilles, but after 2 weeks of watching this team, it’s hard to just point to one thing, it’s been a multitude of things going wrong for us.

It certainly doesn’t help that Branden Albert can’t seem to stay in a game. Not that Fox is awful, but he’s not the guy I’d prefer to have at LT for an entire season. The O-line hasn’t been great, but they haven’t been dreadful either.

The LB’s have been pretty bad, possibly the weakest unit of the team, followed closely by the secondary, with Reshad Jones injured. No one opposite Grimes has shown they’re the guy, and Walt Aikens had some expected struggles replacing Reshad Jones. I can’t believe how bad Sheppard has been, and though Jenkins and Misi have been better, still no big plays from the entire group. Vigil is getting more work, but hasn’t been all that much better either.

In my eyes, the biggest disappointment has been the D-line. We’ve only given up 33 points in 2 games, which for those mathematically challenged, like myself, that’s 16.5 PPG. However, this D-line, which was supposed to be a fearsome crew, has truly disappointed so far. All the talk of our own version of the Steel Curtain, or “Ndominance” hasn’t happened yet. Yet. It’s gotta happen. Not necessarily that we’re the best D-line in football, but some level of excellent play. We were pretty good last year until the injuries mounted, so surely adding Suh would raise the level of play, right? It’s gonna happen, and honestly, i think it starts this Sunday against the Bills. The Bills are getting lots of praise, in fact, just the other day on NFL radio, they were discussing which team could finally unseat the New England Patriots, and would you believe it, not a single word uttered about the Dolphins, not even in the conversation. It’s gonna change, and change fast. Watch the game this Sunday folks, I’m telling you, don’t miss it. We’re going to get a glimpse, our first glimpse of Ndominance! Be there! Even if you’re at home watching, STAND THE F*CK UP!

    1st .Good answers there Mike.

  2. Brian in NY says:

    Nice job Mike- let’s hope that you are right. I like you’re renewed optimisim; I for one am not that optimistic. I need to see them string together some wins before I get my hopes back up. They had better get their act together this week and next or the season is going to be over IMO.

    What happened to this new program that would prevent injuries? How the hell do we have so many hamstring injuries?

    • jetsssuck says:

      we have to give it time to work. It’s mandatory for the players made the team.Hopefully it will make our team stronger down the stretch.

    ————————————————————————————-
    Our team is young at all the positions meaning we can finally draft best available position and develop players like Pittsburgh does and is very good at.The cap position was probably discussed and the long term direction was discussed. This direction of getting young and developing players probably is philbins best attribute and it shows with not throwing rookies into the mix early in their first year.

    • jetsssuck says:

      we can draft best available player instead of position

    • jetsssuck says:

      The foundation is laid now we have to wait for these players to improve yearly and once we have improvement we can work to infuse new talent through the draft. This is how you create steady contenders year out and year in. Ross isn’t stupid as some think

    And now there are 20+ players out there waiting to pounce and that doesnt include Dark Ritchie. Last week we got our fill of Odrick, this week we’ll see how bad Clay is going to hurt us. Will Davis will be starting by the time we see Baltimore and I’m sure we’ll face about 2/3 of those other guys we let go.

  10. jetsssuck says:

    Philbin is the correct choice for head coach despite what some say should have been Bowles. Philbin has been on championship team from college and was on Green Bay staff of SB winning team. He turned down HC job in college to join Iowa where he helped turn the program around. His time in Green Bay has had his offensive team in the top 10 every year. Todd Bowles didn’t have the experience in the NFL and was only a position coach until Miami Dolphins gig. S.Ross isn’t stupid as some claim.

    • Try Pod says:

      I wonder who that could be.. things that make you go “Hmmmm….”

    • Try Pod says:

      As far as Philbin being the correct coach or not, I’m not sure the evidince available supports that, but it makes no difference, as he IS the coach now, and will likely be until at least the end of the season.

      • jetsssuck says:

        Who could we hire with the salary cap position? We won’t be able to change philosophy of being a pass oriented team to being a run power team. We did this already under Ross..No coach is wanna come here unless its a first time coach and I believe Ross has already thought of this with knee jerk fans.

      • Try Pod says:

        I should have mentioned the RBOTW is Heather Thomas.

      • Try Pod says:

        jetsssuck,
        Your argument is a “chicken or egg” scenario, so your indictment of someone picking Bowles over Philbin is faulty. You need to let things go.

      • jetsssuck says:

        Their was 5-6 nfl HC coaching opening that yr. I guess all those franchises were stupid afterall the guy had 3 games HC experience and only had been a NFL position coach before his gig with Dolphins? Thank goodness we have a owner who doesn’t listen to knee jerk fans who think they know more than him.

    Mike E- a little Retro Babe action! Nice. If you’re going to go retro, she’s a good’un.
    Thanks for answering my question. I wasn’t setting you up with that question purposefully, but I have asked it in a similar fashion at some point earlier this year. You answered roughly the same as this time, so good on you for your consistency. I think I have slightly changed my opinion on the answer to this question, though I readily admit i believe my disappointment at the performance of this team to start the season has disillusioned me

  13. Try Pod says:

    Got a question for Mike E: The first question says from O’Rob, though I never have seen anyone logon with that name here.

  14. sb7mvp says:

    Just because someone comes from a winning program, doesn’t make them a winner. Todd Bowles was an assistant HC and had head coaching experience, albeit for 3 games. Philbin was an offensive coordinator without much power and very vague job duties. Bowles also has a winning record in December as an HC, something that Philbin hasn’t had in 3 years. So on paper, Bowles was the better candidate at the time of hiring and had more experience.
    There’s also no telling what kind of QB we would have gotten had Bowles been hired or how long Ireland would have been around. However, Bowles 4-1 with lesser teams than Philbin has coached in the last 2 years, so I don’t think there is evidence so far supporting Philbin being better.

    • sb7mvp says:

      And before someone takes my post out of context, I hope this team somehow wakes up and makes Philbin a winner and that he goes on to do great things here in Miami. I’m just addressing the claims that Philbin was a better candidate and had more experience than Todd Bowles at the time of hiring.

      • Try Pod says:

        I think the argument given above is less about who would be a better coach, and more about a personal dislike for someone who has made a statement in support of Bowles over Philbin. You are obviously right, as the variables in play 4 years ago would have changed what our current situation is (in all likelihood).

    • The Flying Pig says:

      I liked Bowles
      I think some one should have hired him years ago

      but the appeal of Philbin was that he was offensive minded
      between Sporano, Wanny and Saban I think a lot of fans wanted to see some one who would put up some points
      It hasn;t really showed on the scoreboard 😦

    In regards to question one . We kicked off in both games and the D gave up a score on the opening drives including a TD to Jax. That puts instant pressure on the O. We should take the ball to start I hate deferring.

    good job mike. I don’t think this team is the real deal. I really wanted them to be, but after the 1st 2 weeks I don’t see it. I don’t see anyone on this team, other than tanny, that really wants to win. I think most of them are happy to punch the clock and get a paycheck. 4-12 or 12-4 makes no difference to most of them IMO.

    • Tim Knight says:

      That’s a bold statement about a lot of people but you are a Boulder. 🙂

      • BoulderPhinfan says:

        I don’t see any passion or sense of urgency when I watch this team play. They are emotionless like their coach.
        Maybe you see something different.

    • Mike E. says:

      I think it’s too early to say that.I think Landry shows every time he’s on the field he wants to win. I think there are many others too, but their failures on the field shouldn’t be miscontrued as not caring. I know sometimes I feel that way too, but I don’t buy it yet.

      • BoulderPhinfan says:

        If this was philbin’s first year I’d agree with you. But after 3 years of this same shit I know what’s coming.

  27. BoulderPhinfan says:

    son,
    against the jags stopped their 3rd and 7. Then on that 3rd down they called suh for offsides. They converted on 3rd and 2 then bortles hit a bomb to robinson. We had them stopped. One dumb mistake and that turned into a TD.
    This team is not playing with discipline right now and its hard to win games in this league if your team doesn’t play with discipline.

  28. Mike E. says:

    I agree with Tim and SB7. That’s coaching though.

    • Tim Knight says:

      It is to a degree but it’s also the mentality of the players as a group to say lets go kick some ass. When I played sports I never needed coaches to motivate me to want to do well and win. Never! I was always competitive that’s why I don’t buy certain aspects blaming the coaching, players should all be self-motivated and if they’re not you have the wrong players.

  29. Mike E. says:

    Boulder

    I don’t think Philbin is a great motivator, if that’s what you mean. You’re saying though that the players don’t care. I think even the best coaches can only motivate players for a short time, and then it’s on them to stay motivated.

    • BoulderPhinfan says:

      These guys are professionals now. They care about money and bling. Winning comes after all that. Thats why you need a coach/QB combo to motivate them to win.

      Philbin couldn’t motivate a cat to catch a mouse running in front of it.

  30. Tim Knight says:

    Maybe Son is right, if we win the toss take the ball go down and score and play up instead of down. Getting the ball in the 2nd half isn’t a must.

    • son of a son of a shula says:

      We need a captain who sucks at calling heads and tails. Whoever calls it now always seems to be right and we win the toss and defer.

  31. son of a son of a shula says:

    I agree Mike its waaay too early to make any judgements. Last year the patsies were 2-2 and everyone thought they were doomed. Let’s see what happens with home cooking and a division rival.

    • BoulderPhinfan says:

      If this team was being coached by belicheat I’d agree that its too early to count them out.

      • son of a son of a shula says:

        I like to think of it like in the movie “Beer Fest”, when all hope seems lost they begin to chant – We’re not that drunk, We’re not that drunk, We’re not that drunk

        Then start whooping ass.

  32. Tim Knight says:

    Boulder, see my post at 10:12.

    We just got 25 new players. How could these players be just as bad as last year’s bunch? If they are still the wrong players then hickey should get fired.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Too early for all this. We’re 1-1. It’s getting a little crazy. The next 2 games are huge. At worse we need to be 2-2. 1-3 and things could get bad.

  34. BoulderPhinfan says:

    LOL @ son.

  35. sb7mvp says:

    I would much rather defer.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Normally I would too but our defense seems to start off slow and has allowed a 1st drive for a score in both games. Maybe we should try to score first.

  36. Mike E. says:

    Tim

    I wasn’t talking about motivation, I was talking about that our team’s strategy seems to always be reactive, take what they give you, rather than we’re doing this, and they can’t stop us. I might be wrong, but that’s the way it appears. I wish we would dictate what we’re doing, and just do it!

  37. son of a son of a shula says:

    One time we made deer for dinner and didn’t tell the kids what it was. We gave them one clue, we said it’s what mommy calls daddy.

    The younger one says, “don’t eat it, it’s a fucking dick”.

  38. son of a son of a shula says:

    LOL, Mike I did see it on FB and and couldn’t get the pic to show so I just typed it.

  39. Tim Knight says:

    Tannehill hasn’t thrown and INT in his last 150 pass attempts going back to the Vikings game last year.

  40. olddolphan says:

    I CAN’T BELIEVE STEVE ROSS HAS RISEN TO THE LEVEL OF FOOTBALL GURU according to one person’s opinion! TRUTH IS ROSS is the only owner in Fins history who hasn’t won a playoff game, HOWEVER, even Ross isn’t stupid enough to try to step on the record of the one and only DON SHULA. To even suggest that Joe Philbin’s accomplishments rival Shula’s is the height of stupidity and ignorance.
    —————————–
    HERE is Ross’s record of hires. He chose to RETAIN Ireland, Sparano and Parcells when he purchased the team. While Parcells was a winning coach back in the day, his record as a chief of football operations is not good. And that was his job under Ross. Sparano and Ireland were both terrible, as the team’s record suggests during their tenure. ROSS’s hiring of Mike Dee as team President was a disaster. Dee alienated the Republican leadership of Florida in his ill-fated attempt to get the taxpayers to foot part of the bill for upgrading Sun-Baked Stadium. Dee eventually was let go by Ross, but only AFTER the political damage was done. More recently, Ross had well publicized failures in his attempts to hire Jim Harbaugh and, later, Jeff Fisher, as head coach of the Dolphins. WHAT AN EMBARRASSMENT!! –In the final moments, Ross told Bowles he had not “made the cut” and should seek other employment, which he did with the Arizona Cardinals. Ross was left with jjust one candidate, Joe Philbin, who was given the job of head coach (even though Philbin has NEVER been a head coach at ANY level). –NOT to my surprise, Phibin, now in his 4th season as head coach, has failed to deliver a single winning season.
    ————————–
    One person may believe that this makes ROSS a successful owner and a knowledgeable, clever, pro football owner. I WOULD ARGUE that Ross’s record as an Dolphins’ owner is one laced with poor choices and a lack of noteworthy achievements on the football field. But don’t take my word for it. Just look at the reviews Ross, his management team and, most importantly, HIS FOOTBALL TEAM, have received both in the football world and on the various web sites that display disgruntled fans’ comments. The vast majority of Dolphin fans are NOT HAPPY with the state of this franchise. And that’s NOT GOING TO CHANGE as long as this team is run by Ross, Tannenbaum and Philbin. The “New Trifecta” may actually BE WORSE than the “Old Trifecta.”–And the only common denominator is Steve Ross, who has presided over BOTH OF THEM.

    An entertaining and informative read as usghe Mike E.

    Spurs has largely Jewish ownership and a Chairman called Levy. Players have no religious bias to the best of my knowledge, but I could be wrong! If you want to read more …….

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tottenham_Hotspur_F.C.

    PS Glad to hear you’ll keep the faith …. my fandom only extends to 31 years when Marino wowed me and my life ceased to become my own as I embraced a finfan’s misery. Also, apart from playing on Spurs ground, I don’t think their is any affiliation between the club and a possible NFL expansion franchise.

  47. Tim Knight says:

    Pouncey is hurt now?

  48. ukfinfan says:

    Also, ref the early West Coast kick-off time, here’s the other side of the coin.

    If you didn’t want the rest of the world to watch your sport, you should have kept it a secret! 🙂

  50. Mike E. says:

    Thanks for the info UK. Obviously when I was young, my fandom was just an affiliation, but it really went into full swing when I was about 13-14 YO.

  51. Mike E. says:

    It’s not just us with injuries. Every team is getting shellacked. We should be happy we haven’t had any major injuries.

    Lamar Miller does not look good running on that ankle. You have been warned.

  53. sb7mvp says:

    We don’t use running backs to run anyway

  54. D says:

    SB7, I think that there is neither enough evidence to support Bowles being better or Philbin at this point. I think the comparison of the 2 is weak anyways. You cant go back and put Bowles in our team through those years and say confidently he would have done more, and you cant say that
    Philbin might not have done more with other teams. Its just not a comparable thing.

    Keep in mind too, that Bowles also very early in his career, he still has a lots of bumps in the road to overcome and by end of the year he could be 4-15…. Then the discussion is way different. You just gotta look at things as they are not guessing shoulda coulda woulda. I did actually pull a little for Bowles, early on, to be the guy when we made our decision, but was happy with the Philbin hire. Im still ok with it, because we have the rest of the season to make up our minds, and its making up our minds if he worked out not if he was the best choice then. That is the fact, thats reality, he either is or is not good enough. Everything else about who we coulda had or what we coulda done with someone else is fantasy, and there is nothing good that comes from it.

    • sb7mvp says:

      lol. did you even read what I wrote? I never said any of those things, in fact, I specifically said the opposite. I even had to reply to my own comment to make sure it wasn’t taken out of context. looked to be an exercise in futility.

      • D says:

        Wasnt arguing with you as you have assumed the last two times i have replied to one of your comments. Yes i real it and i was saying more in addition to not so much against what you were saying. You also did lean towards “on paper” showing that Bowles looked better, and i was just saying any sort of too for comparing the two doesnt exist. Deifferent teams, different times, etc etc.

  55. stangerx says:

    Awesome as always Mike E. Great and smart takes………you surprised me that your hunger didn’t put you on the attack. 🙂

  56. stangerx says:

    UK — absolutely think there will be a team in London, only question is when.
    One team for a whole country is the way I see it.
    And all those mistimed games……they’ll still get ratings outside the normal windows.
    Expand after that to China and a few other countries after that and on Sundays we might get live games for a full 24 hours. 🙂

  57. sb7mvp says:

    D you called me out by name and then proceeded to tell me I can’t and shouldn’t say things that I didn’t say so how was I supposed to take it? If it’s a separate thought you have to indicate it as such.

    So very, very nice of her……just hope they have ESPN there.

  69. D says:

    SB7, using your name addresses the message is to you, and you may be right i may have used You and it could be interperted as me saying You did this…..or you could also if you werent for some reason thinking im trying to “call you out”….see You as in this isnt something that can be done.

    Im trying to tell you what i meant….you want to feel called out fine man…. I dunno what your issue is, but i have never called you out, and i dont do that here in general., so wouldnt it be outside my norm to be doing this to you specifically and wouldnt that mean i probably didnt mean it as you took it? Either way this is the second time in as many days you have reacted to me as if i was. If you want to feel called out, ill call you out for overreacting to shit not intentionally directed at you.

    Some people were very disappointed with this loss. I can tell you for me personally, if we get blown out on Sunday, I will not be kind to this team.

    • Tim Knight says:

      If that happens I might be totally discouraged about the entire season.

      • Mike E. says:

        Me too. If we lose a tough game, it’s understandable. They’re a tough team for us. If we get blown out and look like we don’t belong in the same stadium as them, that will be very disheartening.

    The vast majority of Dolphin fans are NOT HAPPY with the state of this franchise. And that’s NOT GOING TO CHANGE as long as this team is run by Ross, Tannenbaum and Philbin. The “New Trifecta” may actually BE WORSE than the “Old Trifecta.”–And the only common denominator is Steve Ross, who has presided over BOTH OF THEM.
    Sounds like fair weather fans after only 2 games. The vast majority isn’t negative as you as you prove with every chance you get to criticize. Fair weather fan. You, I guess would belong to the group who never see’s a glass half full.
    ——————————————————–
    One person may believe that this makes ROSS a successful owner and a knowledgeable, clever, pro football owner. I WOULD ARGUE that Ross’s record as an Dolphins’ owner is one laced with poor choices and a lack of noteworthy achievements on the football field.
    I guess you stayed at a holiday Inn recently. Fact is Ross has a team of people that helped him make the vital decisions concerning his franchise. I’m sure he consulted with the vice chairman of the team which happens to be Shula.
    ————————————————————
    NOT to my surprise, Phibin, now in his 4th season as head coach, has failed to deliver a single winning season.
    yr division place
    1986 56 Miami Dolphins NFL 16 8 8 0 .500 3
    1987 57 Miami Dolphins NFL 15 8 7 0 .533 3
    1988 58 Miami Dolphins NFL 16 6 10 0 .375 5
    1989 59 Miami Dolphins NFL 16 8 8 0 .500 3

    1990 60 Miami Dolphins NFL 16 12 4 0 .750 2 1 1 .500 2
    1991 61 Miami Dolphins NFL 16 8 8 0 .500 3
    Here’s 6 years of Shula. Again you need to stop staying at Holiday Inn. It’s better to not say anything and let people think one may be stupid than to say something and confirm one is stupid as a rock

    • BoulderPhinfan says:

      This is a ridiculous argument.
      if philbin wins 2 superbowls, like shula did before 1986, we’ll let him keep his job after 4 non playoff seasons..

      • jetsssuck says:

        5 out of 6 seasons non playoff and his record was 1 game above 500 through 6 seasons. Only 2 division titles in last 10 years…Shula would have long gone after 2 seasons if Shula was coaching in today’s environment of fair weather fans.

    • jetsssuck says:

      30-33 was Shula’s record for the 4 year period of 1986 to 1989. Sounds similar to Philbins losing record of being under 500 by a couple of games.

    But it feels like a huge risk

    • D says:

      Im kinda stuck making the decision, im going with Gurley for right now until i know for sure Miller is 100%. Will be hard enough for him to get points otherwise. He needs to be able to pivot to turn screens into big plays which is only way i think he is productive this game.

      • Mike E. says:

        There’s no easy decision with this. Even if Miler plays, he may only get a few carries and then they pull him because he’s not right. If he’s 100%, he still likely only to get about 12-15 carries. Gurley probably isn’t starting, so his workload will likely be split as well.

    I’d worry that Gurley is only going to get 4-6 touches just to get his feet wet and see how he feels.

Why start a post with my name if the things you were saying weren’t meant for me is all I was trying to figure out.

    i was watching the cinn vs memphis college game. once again horrible officiating. the cinn qb got clobbered, taking off on a stretcher and not moving. it was a clear cut shot to the head and targeting, but the officials over turn that targeting call. the poster hit for why they have that rule and the idiot refs overturn it.

    ok yeah, sooooo. why in the world would the fins want someone who can block.

    i know coughlin’s giants have struggled of late but i would take him in a heart beat over blowbin

  127. herdfan says:

    This official clearly has become part of the game. 😉

  128. finfanrob says:

    ken,

    i was more just busting on the o line not saying anything good about jerry. he pretty much didnt do anything here to help an o line that has sucked for years

    Closing up here, may be back on later. If not, Goodnight all!

    Its only after they leave here that players flourish. Read my posts just this AM and last night.
    We’ll see all those guys we let go as we go through the course of this season.
    Next up, Charles Clay who will catch a couple of 2yd curl routs and turn them up field for 70+yd gains.
    Anyone know who we gave to the Jets?

  131. Ken says:

    Cousins is not looking good tonight.

  132. finfanrob says:

    football is so confusing. i just saw manning throw a pass behind his wr. i thought only tanny was the only qb allowed to throw bad passes.

  133. ocalahowie says:

    Oh yes I forgot about him but since he left under this regime I guess he counts.
    This morning I didnt count Dark Ritchie but I will throw him in now
    Sunday he throws some hillacious block springing whoever for at least 175 and 2 TDs

    Landon Collins looks like a player

  137. Ken says:

    Think I will catch the 2nd half in bed or more likely asleep. I am out. Peace to you all.

    3 step drop and quick passes is the way to beat this

    Armando Salguero @ArmandoSalguero
    LG Dallas Thomas has struggled with his pass blocking, giving up 2 sacks, 1 QB hit, and 5 hurries in 125 snaps per PFF.

    Armando Salguero @ArmandoSalguero
    Backup LT Jason Fox struggled in replacing Albert. DE Jared Odrick won that matchup.
