How’s the Weather

Here we are arriving in week 13 of the NFL season, three quarters of the season behind us and playoffs fast approaching. Except for one thing! Oops, our Dolphins forgot to become a playoff team like they were supposed to. The much heralded 50th season screwed the pooch. Monday Night football in throwback uniforms ready to bring back the memories of the greatest of the great Dolphin teams and out trots 5-7 the only saving grace is that we aren’t yet mathematically eliminated. Will Eli drive in the dagger? Or will Suh and his Defense deny them and leave us ready to fight another day?

I look around the league at all of the guys who are becoming stars who were the very guys we dissected in recent years leading into the respective drafts. I see, just tonight, four stand out players I remember pounding the table for.

Everson Griffen who had a rough start to his career has become a solid high level Defensive End for Minnesota.

I see Tyron Mathieau who is arguably one of the best Safeties in the game with the Cardinals.

Kyle Rudolph one of many Tight Ends I hoped for us to draft but we passed for someone who I’m sure we cut by now. The Vikes know how to use him.

Harrison Smith another Safety and although injured is also one of the better Safeties in the league.

I see all these guys not just on Minnesota or Arizona but all over the league and I lament the crap decisions Jeff Ireland made. There’s no need to rehash it we all know the score. The point is there really isn’t a need to force a fit with a player there are good players who played at big schools and they come in and help your team, Not Egnew! Everyone said Harrison Smith was a 2nd or 3rd rounder leading up to the draft but Vikings saw otherwise and drafted him in the 1st round and he has been a starter since his arrival and as I said one of the better Safeties in the league. Draft the best players from the biggest schools put them in and let them help you.

Not going to bash Tannehill. I hope he puts that throwback uniform on and it somehow transforms him, maybe it makes the game slow down who knows. He isn’t at all what I expected this season but with the way things have gone I’d like to see this team put a solid December together so there is something worthwhile to have hope in over the loooong off season where we will once again watch our favorite players get drafted by other teams. Show us the fans some heart and let us see the team that may fall just short of the playoffs and have a hunger heading to next year or hell get lucky and have things fall just right and get into the playoffs as a hot team, Wouldn’t that be something. We’re 1-0 so far this December, incidently it was Cam and his Panthers that had three wins last season heading into December. Well they swept last December and the only loss since was a second round playoff defeat last January.

There might be magic in them throwbacks!

    Just read the article and looks like it will be the Shula Uni’s. But Knowing clueless Ross he will have us in the Crap JJ years

  4. Brian in NY says:

    Nice job Son. It’s a disappointing season for sure. Instead of playoff positioning, the only thing think we’ll be playing for Monday night will be bragging rights with some family members. Hopefully they pull out a win, as Tim is going down with some buddies who are obviously better than us because her never goes to the fest.

  5. Mike E. says:

    Nice job Sonny. I’m so disheartened by this season, that I really don’t care what happens at all. If we win a game, please win it in a fashion that makes me feel like we achieved a win, rather than the other team just sucked worse than we did. Doesn’t seem like that’s a lot to ask.

  6. Mike E. says:

    Howie

    I like the uni’s from the Shula days OR the 90’s (JJ years) better than what we have now. The 90’s uni’s were a little darker, and I like that.

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2015/12/11/bill-polian-james-thrash-among-the-leagues-new-catch-committee/

    Simple: Catch the ball, 2 feet in bounds. CATCH! Any loss of possession after that is a fumble.

    Try,

    Just bought The Return of the Crimson Guard and Night of Knives. I look forward to finally reading his part of the Malazan.

    • Try Pod says:

      I’ve heard he does a good job. Maybe not as wordy, which is probably a good thing!

      • CavalierKong says:

        Oh, I didn’t realize you haven’t read him. It wasn’t you that told me he writes as well as Stevenson? I must have gotten that mixed up. Once I finish the books, I’ll let you know what I think.

  10. Try Pod says:

    I don’t do fantasy sports, so it really doesn’t affect me, but I hear fan duel and draft kings have been shut down in NY. I’m kinda glad to hear it. It is obviously gambling and they need to be regulated accordingly. When I hear things like only the top 1% of participants are making 95% of the money and that a lot of the action is fan duel associates on draft kings and vice-versa, well…

    • herdfan says:

      I’m glad I don’t live in NY. I enjoy playing on Draft kings and FanDuel. I signed up at the beginning of the season, I put in about 20 bucks to play, won, took my whopping investment out and have played all year. I don’t wins lots of money because I don’t play the big money games. But it is fun and I usually double or triple whatever I’ve got in it.

      It’s not totally a game of chance because you do have to be able to pick the right players within the salary cap. It’s a game of skill I say, which I believe is the issue in NY. 🙂

      • Try Pod says:

        I understand people enjoy it. My problem is it’s easy to rig so only a select few profit. Needs to be regulated. Too easy to corrupt.

      • Try Pod says:

        And the issue in ny is that horse tracks and other venues that offer gambling activities are regulated, while these places have no regulation to verify certain standards are applied.

  11. Try Pod says:

    It’s been way too busy around here, lately…

  12. The Flying Pig says:

    TRY
    I had to stop playing draftkings
    I enjoyed it
    but I don’t want to put $ into my pot and never get it back

    Its not exactly shut down – you can play it
    but it might get shut down
    the Attorney General is calling it illegal in NY and has a suit against the sites
    So a lot of NYers have stopped playing it until that is resolved

    I don’t think the issue is regulating it
    its just stopping it in NY
    I bet Fanduel and Draftkings would pay a few extra “regulation fees” to the state of NY
    For now the Attorney General’s office is pressing them hard – so its illegal for now
    but I bet at the end of the day there is a settlement that allows the sites to operate in NY
    and the state of NY will get some sort of fees out of it

    That is the sort of regulation you are probably look at
    The state of NY wants a piece of the :illegal gambling”
    I doubt they really want to shut it down for good

    • Try Pod says:

      It is about money, no doubt. Horse tracks have to follow certain regs and pay certain fees- as far as they’re concerned it’s unfair advantage to a direct competitor who should be forced to operate under the same rules. And the mob wants a piece of the action.

    Joined Son in the colonoscopy club today. Man do those of you who haven’t hit the 5-0 yet have a fun time coming. It is not so much actually doing it, but the day before stuff turns your A hole into a faucet.

    Glad I went to law school though. In recovery after talking to my wife I learned she wasn’t going to be there for a while and told the recovery nurse I’d wait for her at the entrance..

    The nurse said “I can’t release you until your ride is here.” I said, “You are very nice, but I haven’t had a cigarette in 12 hours. I’m also a lawyer who knows you can’t hold legally hold me here. Your choice as to whether I walk out in front in this backless thing or you give my clothes back first.”

    After her telling me I was an A-type……..I was happily puffing away ten minutes later.

    • Ken says:

      You sure it was “A type” she said?

      • stangerx says:

        LMAO — she used the the phrase “personality type”…….but that is exactly what both she and I knew she meant.

    The benching of Jamar Taylor was not a one-week experiment. Indeed, because Bobby McCain played well enough after being a little shaky early in the Baltimore game, the Dolphins are staying McCain ahead of Taylor. That means Taylor is going to have to learn to prepare like he’s playing, even when he’s not.

    —————————————–
    It sure seems that simple to me too, and what I’ve been saying all yr. Go back to the old rule. They changed it, because of one catch in the NFC Championship Game between the Bucs and Rams.

    Same for college, they need to change it there too. USC lost a championship to Texas during the Pete Carroll reign, because of the stupid you have to take 48 steps after the catch rule.

    The last 2 games the cheats haven’t been getting the calls they normally get, from the they’re behind pick ’em up calls to the TDs that aren’t, to the non calls of their lineman and DBs holding, and to no one on here’s surprise they lost both. What are the chances they stop getting the calls?

    The NBA said that referees missed a foul call on the New York Knicks’ final possession against the Sacramento Kings on Thursday that might have impacted the outcome of the game.
    ——————————–
    Why is there even a story about this? Because it happened to NY. You could say the same thing about any game decided on the last possession, and we all know the refs keep their whistle’s in their pockets, unless the foul is blatant. It happens it every sport, the biggest non-call ever may be in the 49ers vs Giants playoff game about 10 yrs ago when a fumbled snap on a Giants FG attempt resulted in a pass downfield that saw the 49er defender hit the receiver 2 seconds before the ball got there.

    Howie, Ken Stabler died this past summer as well.

  57. getterdone says:

    Defensive end Damontre Moore is out of a job with the New York Giants that paid him $585,000 this season, because he lost his cool when he didn’t get a pair of free headphones.
    Here’s the story: Receiver Odell Beckham gave out blue Beats By Dre headphones to his teammates, Jordan Raanan of NJ.com said.
    Defensive lineman Cullen Jenkins took multiple pairs. Moore, a disappointing 2013 third-round pick who had already been frustrating the Giants, didn’t get a pair. So he fought with Jenkins. And that was the final straw for the Giants, who cut Moore. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport also reported the free Beats reason as the reason for Moore’s release.

    Seriously, these two professionals scrapped because everyone didn’t get their free headphones, like two first graders getting mad over who got the last juice box, or two midnight shoppers scrapping over the last $10 toaster at a black Friday sale. A man lost his job in the NFL over this nonsense.

    Ken Stabler died July of this year 2015.

    This is the most bizarre Ken Stabler story

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/early-lead/wp/2015/07/10/this-is-the-most-bizarre-ken-stabler-story/

    Recently deceased Super Bowl-winning quarterback Ken Stabler liked to party. Stories of his exploits reveal a promiscuous man with a great thirst for alcohol who generally personified the rebellious Raiders of the ’70s.

    Aside from inciting a number of arguments for his inclusion in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, the death of the 69-year old “Snake” because of complications from colon cancer brought a number of Stabler stories out of the woodwork. “The collecting of female undergarments became an annual rite of training camp for many of the Raiders,” Stabler wrote in “Snake,” his autobiography. “I liked to tack my collection up on the walls.”

  61. getterdone says:

    Dolphins TE Brandon Williams (foot) is expected to miss the rest of the season.

      Seems the general social dynamic of all those spend on their boats and lights and popping sound systems apply pretty generally.

      And hey seems people like it. Each year we can’t get a car in or out of our building for like five hours cause they shut the whole town down……and folks camp out like for a Stones concert for the prime spots hours before it starts.

        That is a big draw there. Gets like that here too, but not as bad. Enjoy the show. Sounds like you got a prime location on the poop deck way up high.

    Not much into Boats but you know what was cool, The off shore power boat races. The had those starting at our beach (Haulover) We could check out the boats docked on the intercoastal before the race, the they would go out of Haulover inlet down to Key Biscayne and be back in like 10min
    Another good one was the Hydroplane races; those where at Miami Marine Stadium across from the Miami Seaquarium.

    wait a sec, just hold on. so if the kids dont eat i can have a boat. damn why didnt some one tell me that sooner

  75. stangerx says:

    Way up high is exactly it. In one of the high rise places downtown. Don’t get much space, but you do get a view of the boat parade.

    Boats like these are a wasteless use of money. So are private jets. Willing to enjoy both if asked though.

    i dont have nor ever plan to have either but i disagree with that statement. it is like saying a filet is a wasteless use of money when there is hamburger.

    it is all just relative. to you and me a boat of private jet might be, to some one that has the money they are not.

    • stangerx says:

      For sure ffr — it is coming from me from where I sit, but the boaters (and by that I mean the ones with hot tubs in them) are just so stupid to me at times. I got one who parks in front of my building. He’s about 55 with a two man crew. He’s just an idiot, but hangs and parties with his crew and their friends in their twenties pulling from tequila bottles with them. And he always tries to talk up my wife when she walks by if I am not around. You get the idea……little boy that never grew up. Typical dude who buys a boat and a dream for me.

  77. ocalahowie says:

    The Grand Prix was Killer; One time we went into the Everglades Hotel and my buddy told the maid we where from the school newspaper. she let us in one of the rooms with our little Vivitar Camera and a cooler full of beer. Another time we just climed up into some old run down building and the best was poolside on the roof of the Howard Johnson. Had a Bar Tab, Hot Women and Fast Cars

  78. getterdone says:

    OV has been playing well lately. Will be a tough decision to pay him market price or just slap him with a franchise tag @ approx $15M.
    I’d probably do the latter and see who we can draft to groom @ DE in 2016, plus DIon might be back.

  79. finfanrob says:

    stanger

    guys a creep for hitting on your wife but cant blame him for wanting the 20 is crowd. well as long as late 20’s. like i tell my son and nephew and said it over and over on here. there is no such thing as an old ugly RICH old ugly man.

    • stangerx says:

      ffr — you’d have to see him a bit more. Day I am “hiring” (which is what he literally does) people thirty years younger than me to be my friends is the day I know self-respect is gone.

      He’ll have couple friends from back home in one night and skimpy chicks dancing on his boat the next……yeah I realize that might not have made my case with you. 🙂

  80. finfanrob says:

    stanger

    i get it, i am not buying friends either. but then again it wasnt friendship we were talking about. and i am not even buying the other stuff either. but if some hottie wants to be on my boat cause she wants to be cause i have one i am not saying no.

  81. ocalahowie says:

    You talking about Dion Jordan?
    Is he still under contract?
    Screw him, he wont even make it through camp…
    Worthless piece of shit!

    Oh wait nevermind

    Go Camolina!

  84. stangerx says:

    It’s playoff gameday in the FF world Son.

    Know who made the playoffs in the league the board guys play in?

    • son of a son of a shula says:

      It sounds like you did

      • stangerx says:

        I got two going………but feel like I didn’t deserve one of them. Started one and five but then stormed back cause I got to vulture the injury replacements for Bell, Charles, Forsett and Forster. Talk about being an ambulance chaser.

  85. son of a son of a shula says:

    I liked the boat pics Stanger that looks like a fun event

  86. son of a son of a shula says:

    It sounds like you picked the right guys as replacements, they got you to the playoffs

  87. ocalahowie says:

    NO CAMOLINA!
    But wait even if they do it, it dont count
    We had to play our Play-off games on the road
    Where as they will have Home Field Advantage.
    NO FAIR!

  88. wyoming85 says:

    Sad state of affairs right there!

    • rgs322 says:

      Basically if 2 of these 3 teams ( Pitt, KC, Jest) win today Miami is done for the playoffs. …Even though I think they are done already. I’m thinking 1 maybe 2 more wins for the Phins this year.

  89. herdfan says:

    I had the opposite of Stanger’s FF thing happening. Was doing great, then had some major injury issues. Couldn’t get the replacements I wanted because I was last on the waiver wire. I’m in the playoffs, so anything can happen!

    • stangerx says:

      That is FF…….anyone can beat anyone. Not like Cleveland playing say Carolina.

      The best team is the one that gets the most points during the reg season, but that is not the team that normally cashes the winner’s check.

  90. ocalahowie says:

    Forget that but I still want us to win
    I think the Players really like Campbell so we will win out and give him a shot at next season

    • herdfan says:

      I think the only way he gets a shot a next season is if they win out AND there’s really no one better out there to get who wants to come here. If they just hire some new guy and not THE guy they want we might end up with another 3 to 4 year wait til we get another shot at a good coach.

  91. manitobafinfan says:

    I dont want anyone else having a perfect season. I do like the panthers though. Hope they lose today and go to superbowl

  92. manitobafinfan says:

    Also had one that made little people with wires inset so ya could pose them

  93. ocalahowie says:

    I dont think any of the Big names on the Hot Seat will do any better motivating this group than THE MAN in charge right now.
    We get Payton and our guys will go right back on vacation for the next three years after that maybe Belicheat will be free.
    He’ll turn over the roster 2-3 times a season till he finds guys who are good and want to play hard

  94. Mike E. says:

    I don’t think Mac Notwen is Superman necessarily, but . . .

    Cam Newton in the RED ZONE, 21 passing TD’s, 6 rushing TD’s, ZERO turnovers.

    That’s frigging unbelievable!

    If there’s anything you can count on, it’s the annual stupid things high draft prospects can do to screw up their careers. Wait, maybe I should change that to top draft prospects. Saying he was high is a given here.

  111. ocalahowie says:

    Wow 30 years ago
    just last Sunday I was talking to this Bears Fan Woman while watching our respective games
    I said remember that game in ’85 when you guys where about to go undefeated and the only team to stop you was the Dolphins.
    She replied; How can I remember, I was only four.
    To myself I was like how long the hell ago was that and how young can she be if she live in the Villages.

  112. finfanrob says:

    well looks like the cheats will have home field advantage. who would have ever thought that possible

  113. Mike E. says:

    I did a 5K run/walk this morning for the Marine Corps Toys for Tots. Crazy that it was 68 degrees at the finish on Dec 12 in New jersey. What a stunner of a day.

  114. finfanrob says:

    whoppie do mike. i sat on my sofa all day and didnt even have a drink. try topping that kind of sacrifice

  115. Mike E. says:

    That’s insane Rob. I could never make that kind of sacrifice

  116. Mike E. says:

    I had been thinking about all the warm gear I would need for today, under armour this, under armour that, expecting it to be about 20 degrees, and it’s warmer here than it is by you Rob, or probably about the same.

  117. finfanrob says:

    mike

    it is warmer here. we still have to use the ac down here. i guess in the 80’s most of the day
