The Porcine Oddyssey#29: Jaguars @ Dolphins (RE-PORKED)

Finsmob Unleashed

Well its the Offseason

And you know what that means

Um…no one wants to write or has anything to write about….

But come with me…


Come with me to an Oddyssey Flashback

All this talk about Tannehill and got me oinking…

Remember when we used to talk about Henne being trained to check down..

Here it is…the story if Killroy Pig…Re-Porked


PORKLOGUE: Well this week I hate my job more than ever and I think it will show in today’s Oddyssey which is a short little ditty about old memories. Domo Arigato!

    Damn! We cut Fox??? I thought he was starting to get it. lol

    • Tim Knight says:

      He got worse it seemed.

    • wyoming85 says:

      It was the dumb ass first time head coach!
      He doesn’t know that Miami keeps the OL fuck-ups and lets the good ones walk!

      He’ll get up to speed pretty soon don’t worry! 😉

    • getterdone says:

      He out foxed you if you thought he was starting to get it.
      The RT on Bama Jackson reminded me soooo much of Fox last nite….too funny. He was a turnstile & a penalty machine. But hey, they squeaked out the win.

  2. Tim Knight says:

    Fox saves us $1.25M and the dead money is only 162,500K. Cha ching! LOL

  3. Mike E. says:


    Totally kidding. Fox was awful. What’s worse is we freaking needed to rely on him to start at both LT and RT. That can’t happen again. Well, something like that can’t happen again.

    • Tim Knight says:

      I know you were, you were worried about the OL all season. Now we know we’re not good enough for sure. If some of the young guards get better great, but I don’t think we can rely on any of them this year.

  4. naplesfan2010 says:

    I read somewhere that we are rotating the 8 ,9 ,10 ,11 picks with ties broken in reverse order of strength of schedule.

    Since there were four 6-10 teams, but we had the easiest schedule, we are pick 8 in round 1 but pick 11 in round 2, 10 in round 3, 9 in round 4, then 8 again in 5. then it gets a bit weird for other reasons, but I think it is pick 10 in 6th round and both 6 and 8 in the 7th.

    Anybody able to verify this? Of course the comp picks will push the overall number back later, but not our in-round pick number.

    Adam Schefter ‏@AdamSchefter 1m1 minute ago
    Dolphins hired former Bengals asst coach Vance Joseph as their defensive coordinator, per source.

  6. getterdone says:

    See, we should’ve just layed down for the Pats. 😉

  7. Tim Knight says:

    Al, why did the Pats lose their 2016 1st rd pick? I thought nobody did anything wrong and there wasn’t any evidence? LOL

  8. wyoming85 says:

    Armando Salguero ‏@ArmandoSalguero 31s31 seconds ago
    The Dolphins have also hired Bengals LB coach Matt Burke to be their LB coach.

  9. getterdone says:

    The OD Update: 😀

    Ross has spared no expense with his team. He’s paid more than $400 million out of pocket to renovate Sun Life Stadium, spent $114 million last season to sign star defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, and also put together a cutting-edge sports science program to help his players.

    Ross’ passion and spending also leads to high expectations. The owner believes his hire of new head coach Adam Gase will be a turning point that will lead the organization to becoming an NFL powerhouse.

    “I think in Adam Gase we have found that person that will lead us to many, many Super Bowls in the future,” Ross said. “I am not predicting this year. It will take time and so there is no big prediction here because I know what you guys want [me] to say. But I’ve got to tell you, I’m excited to have him.”

    Ross had very high expectations in the past and it hasn’t worked out. When he hired former head coach Joe Philbin in 2012, Ross said he hoped he had found “the next Don Shula.”

  10. getterdone says:

    Safety Cedric Thompson, a Dolphins fifth-round pick from Minnesota, has signed with New England’s practice squad instead of signing a futures contract with the Dolphins.

    My password is not on this PC and the E-mail I have it under is not working either.
    I clicked on the little facebook logo and up popped the wifes daughters stuff so I posted and it worked. Well at least some time later when I found it did show up.
    I could have been on here weeks ago

    The San Jose Mercury News reports the 49ers are no longer in the running for Bengals OC Hue Jackson.
    Ha, so all that crap about Jackson a done deal in SF, so we better hurry & hire Gase because we won’t be getting to interview Hue….smh

    hold on there. this is the miami dolphins, i am sure they can still interview jackson

    wow that sucks. i bet tanny is pissed. i always thought he was the best linemen at picking tanny up off his back. i would rewatch game film just to study fox’s technique of how to help your qb up.

    Tim, I heard Vance Joseph runs a mean prevent. 😀

  20. BoulderPhinfan says:

    I like vance joseph because he’s a buff 🙂 I think he played QB for the buffs in college.

  21. Meg Shaw says:

    I was here a couple weeks ago when you guys had a big conversation going about David Bowie.
    I wanted to post so bad about how I listen to my best of Bowie album like every other Saturday or so. and then yesterday morning when I first heard the news
    You know what I will be listening to this Saturday night.

      He was good Meg. Lots of girls like you really loved his music. Let’s Dance got you up shaking your booty I bet?

    Safety Cedric Thompson, a Dolphins fifth-round pick from Minnesota, has signed with New England’s practice squad instead of signing a futures contract with the Dolphins.
    Of course, there is more money being on a PS as an active player, vs a futures contract. He might be back, and he might not. I hate it because i really thought he might turn into something good, but im also not going to cry over losing a PS player.

  25. D says:

    Al, yeah i had those guys listed as my surprise players of the NC game. Dodd and Howard, and Rueben Foster who gets left out of discussions most of the time when discussing the LB’s at Alabama. They would all have my vote for best stock jumps from that game.

    • D says:

      I think Kenyan Drake raised a few eyebrows too, though i already knew enough about him i wasnt really shocked to see that. He’s a solid RB, just has had a few injury issues in the recent past. Healthy, he is like Miller/Spiller similar backs. He can run between tackles, and has that homerun potential, good receiver. Completely overshadowed.

  26. D says:

    Vance Joseph was the guy Gase wanted, it was rumored right after he got the job with us that, that is who he wanted. Im glad to see we arent getting turned down, so despite it being my first choice im kinda happy with it.

  27. getterdone says:

    I’d like to see if Vance & Burke make a push to sign FA LB Vincent Rey. He’s very solid, knows the system & is only 28. He could definitely play inside so Miami. Would work well behind Suh…IMO.

  28. Meg Shaw says:

    I wasnt even born yet 😦

  29. getterdone says:

    Meet your new TE coach.
    Gee, he’s bound to toughen them up more than Mancampbell did.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Let it go. LOL

      By the way, doesn’t New Age have the same avi?

      • getterdone says:

        My avie looks to the left. Newage’s looks to the right.

        Once Camp rolls around I’ll go back to my boy Tanny! …or maybe Miller if we resign him. He really showed me something the past 2 seasons.

  30. Tim Knight says:

    GD, I think Hewitt is the young LB who showed he’ll be challenging for a starting spot. He’ll likely look to get stronger and add some weight in the offseason.

    • Tim Knight says:

      The same with Vigil. I think if we retain Misi we should move him back inside until we find another MLB.

      • getterdone says:

        Yep, but maybe we can sign Vincent Rey to play the middle & dump Misi’s contract.
        Rey knows what Burke wants out of him. We’ll likely stay 4-3 since that is what Joseph has seen for several years now.

    • BoulderPhinfan says:

      hewitt will challenge jenkins for starting spot next year. Unless they both start.

  31. olddolphan says:

    BRIEFLY BACK ON THE BOARD. Just returned from the World’s Largest Coin Convention, which, this year, was down the road in Tampa. Since your’s truly is the President of the sponsoring organization, I was beyond busy. The show was a big success for both the state organization and for our company, too. But, man, I worked my buns off!!
    Also had/have family issues to deal with (but don’t we all?). –Anyway, I hope to be back on the board this Saturday, hung over from celebrating my birthday Friday. Y’all stay warm or come down here to SOUTHERN F-L-A!!
    BRIEF GASE VIEWPOINT: –Ross hired someone named “Philbin” who had success as O/C for a future HOF quarterback named Aaron Rodgers. He then FLOPPED MISERABLY IN MIAMI when his QB and O-Line were NOT HOF quality.

    ADAM GASE flourished as an O/C when he had a future HOF quarterback named Peyton Manning. But he flopped miserably with Cutler in Chicago as the Bears finish LAST IN THE DIVISION THIS SEASON!! – – Now I AM NOT condemning the Gase selection before a single game has been played under his leadership. But it seems to me that both Gase and Philbin failed miserably with quarterbacks who, while not HOF quality, certainly weren’t the worst in the league, either.

    OH WHAT THE FUCK AM I WORRIED ABOUT?? – – GASE was picked by Tannenbaum and approved by ROSS!!!! – – What more could you ask for your resume?? – – START drinking your Kool-Aid, Dolfans, and go ahead and make your Super Bowl hotel reservations for Super Bowl “LI.” — Or, is it, Super Bowl “LIE??”

    • Tim Knight says:

      Happy Birthday OD!!!

      But Gase helped Cutler achieve his most efficient season ever so there’s that. Chicago also wasn’t a very good team but they got better as the season went on.

      I think you and other fans are doing Gase a disservice comparing him to Philbin. Philbin is not the only first time HC who was a former OC. There’s McCarthy, Payton, Jay Gruden…

      At least see how the guy coaches when we start playing games before we kill him. 🙂

      • olddolphan says:

        Thanks for the nice wishes. But Ross and T-Baum have this nasty habit of picking LOSERS!! – – And Gase’s team finished DEAD LAST in their division, which is the object, right, “To win the game?” I’m not calling for GASE’s beheading, yet. But, NOT to your surprise, he’s got to “show me” he can win in this division with a “Middle of the Pack” QB and an AWFUL O-Line. My money says HE CAN’T DO IT! –hOPE i AM WRONG!!

    Andrew Abramson ‏@AbramsonPBP 1h1 hour ago
    #Dolphins staff moves in addition to DC Joseph
    LB coach – Matt Burke
    TEs – Shane Day
    OL coach – Chris Foerster
    WRs coach – Shawn Jefferson

  33. getterdone says:

    OD, I think most of us here, myself included really wanted a previous HC, or just stick with Campbell if you’re going 1st timer again. The trick there was getting very solid accomplished experienced Coordinators on both sides of the ball to call plays.

    Well, we got one maybe, on offense, the HC calling his own plays, Manning’s way…lol

    On the otherside, meet Vance Joseph the former DBV coach. 🙄

    Hope it works out, but I’m holding off on those Super Bowl reservations just yet. In fact, likely not going to pay to go see any games in 2016 either.

    • olddolphan says:

      GDP: You know those Super-Expensive tix just behind the Dolphins’ bench?? ($1,000-$2,500 PER GAME PER TICKET AND UP), were mostly vacant during every home game this year?? –Opening Day at home vs. Buffalo, they were NEVER more than 1/3 filled. Ross said they were a “Sell-out.” Yet, for every game I attended, they were never even half full at ANY TIME!! Now I did miss both the Cowboys and Patriots’ games BUT, how big a boost did our players get by looking into the EMPTY SEATS right behind the player’s bench?? Seems like thousands of seats will be empty for the upcoming season, too!!

    • Tim Knight says:

      Most veteran coaches have never gotten to the SB either and very few get back later in their careers.

      Why did the Broncos want to hire Joseph as their DC last year over Wade Phillips?

  34. steveccnv says:

    I haven’t heard anyone drinking the koolaid only Ross. I think all of us are wait and see, this past season took a lot out of us. Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice…

    An HC should be smart an innovative, don’t know what Gase will do, but he has the makeup to be a great coach, but I don’t see it happening for many yrs.

    • getterdone says:

      Ross’ passion and spending also leads to high expectations. The owner believes his hire of new head coach Adam Gase will be a turning point that will lead the organization to becoming an NFL powerhouse.

      “I think in Adam Gase we have found that person that will lead us to many, many Super Bowls in the future,” Ross said. “I am not predicting this year. It will take time and so there is no big prediction here because I know what you guys want [me] to say. But I’ve got to tell you, I’m excited to have him.”
      Sounds like Ross is drunk on the Kool Aid. Also says he’ll likely keep Gase on for at least 4 years no matter how bad things get. #willweeverbegreatagain

    Per @PFF, Jason Fox struggled *a tad* after replacing Ja’Wuan James.

  36. New Age says:

    Im not a huge fan of the hires either tbh. I have no problem with Vance Joseph but Shane Day? Foerster has lots of experience but it has never translated into a good OL. His OLs have all been pretty bad to average for a long time. Shawn Jefferson doesn’t wow me either.

    Sure, they could end up being good but nothing yet wows me here.

  37. getterdone says:

    OD, I agree with you. Ross is increasingly having a hard time selling season tix. He’ll be leaning hard on the marketing program to come up with something for corporations that also can buy in some sponsorship advertising I’m sure.

    I’m kinda shocked you’re still renewing season tix. You’re a loyal fan that can/should never be doubted!

  38. getterdone says:

    Happy Belated Birthday OD!
    What, are ya up to the right old age of Shanahan’s 64 yet?

    I remember you complained about him. Now with Gase, I bet ya wish Shanny was in Meami. 😀

  39. Tim Knight says:

    On Shane Day. He’s coached a few positions and the last two years he was the Redskins asst. OL coach. If you’ve watched the Redskins recently, they also run a ZBS cutback scheme in the run game. He learned there for two years under… wait for it… Chris Foerster in 2014 and Bill Callahan in 2015.

    Chris Foerster is our new OL coach. Day moves to TEs. There is some familiarity there and that’s important. Foerster has been an OL coach for years.

    • getterdone says:

      Day scares the shit out of me. I know he must scare the players too. That freaky Jeffrey Dahmer lookin MoFo!

      • Tim Knight says:

        Oy! There’s a lot of not so handsome coaches out there, bro. I’m starting to wonder about your fixation on looks. LOL

  40. Mike E. says:

    Happy Birthday OD!!! Many more my happy ones my friend!

  41. Mike E. says:


    No offense, but our TE’s kinda sucked this year, wouldn’t you say? Mancampbell sure didn’t make them any better

    • getterdone says:

      He was too busy being HC for 12 games Mike and who could over come the horrible system/play calling that Lazor did & left in place?

  42. olddolphan says:

    TIM; TO the best of my knowledge, ROSS NEVER CONSIDERED hiring a head coach who had a winning record last year. Their were SEVERAL big time college coaches (foremost in my mind were Baylor’s Art Briles and the head coach from Ole Miss (just forgot his name)–NEITHER OF WHOM received ANY INTEREST from loser Tannenbaum as he went about picking the next HC.–Again, NOT SAYING those guys were the best options, just sayin’ head coaches from winning programs (see DON SHULA’s record in Baltimore) are a better risk in my view than a) coaches with little/no succes as HC or coaches from losing programs. FACT IS many coaches have turned down ROSS in the past. And, for all we know, a few may have told him “No Thanks” this time, too! THIS FRANCHISE has been a career wrecker under Steve Ross. IT IS TOXIC under Tannenbaum. Virtually ALL OF US wanted Ross to “Clean House!” But this football dumb ass just DOES NOT GET IT!!! THAT’S because he STILL listens to King Carl and T-Baum, BOTH of whom have PROVEN they can destroy this franchise!! WHY Ross keeps these PROVEN LOSERS on the payroll is BEYOND ME!!

    • getterdone says:

      The way some of the quotes read,I think Ross even stepped on Tbomb’s toes.
      Ross said that Gase was someone he wanted even before the coaching searches & interviews could take place.
      Very odd, especially after they previously told the media that there would be a very thorough HC search to make sure they get the right guy, no stone un turned kinda thing….Then boom, they hire Gase without even interviewing Hue Jackson & some others…..Very peculiar to me.
      Ross said he has learned from the past. Guess he called the shots this time right out of the gate for a HC.

  43. olddolphan says:

    Mike E and GDP; Thanx for the B’day wishes! –And, yes, I DO PUT MY MONEY WHERE MY MOUTH IS when it comes to Fins’ season tix. However, some of “My Boyz” have absolutely had it with ROSS AND TANNENBAUM. Some of them will NOT be renewing next year, partly because people with 1-2 years as ticket holders were given preference for seating location over those with 49/50 years as loyal ticket buyers. The guy sitting in front of my brother-in-law has only had tix for 2 YEARS!! –My brother-in-law (50 years, only missed 3 total home games ever played) was told by the ticket office that this guy “had tickets LONGER than my brother-in-law–WHICH IS AN OUTRAGEOUS LIE!!) — STEVE ROSS has rhetorically FUCKED MORE PEOPLE THAN WILT CHAMBERLAIN!! And he wonders why so many Dolfans hate him!!!! – – THIS is exactly out of King Carl’s operator’s manual. Peterson reamed Chiefs’ ticket holders for over a decade before the Hunt family fired him over 20 years ago!!

  44. New Age says:

    Foerster has never had a top 7 OL after all these years. In fact, most of his OLs have ended in the 20s in the rating systems. I know that doesn’t mean a ton but it’s not like he’s some highly regarded steal. Day just doesn’t have a lot of experience in coaching and looks like the guy learning on the job. I want the players learning on the job, not the guys teaching them.

    Once again, young coaches don’t have that long list of connections which really hinder their ability to get a staff. He’s the youngest by a decent margin.

  47. naplesfan2010 says:

    A former NFL cornerback, Vance Joseph brings 11 years of experience coaching defensive backs at the NFL level. He spent the past two seasons (2014-15) as the defensive backs coach for the Cincinnati Bengals, where he helped the team lead the league with 41 interceptions and limit opposing passers to the lowest passer rating (77.4) in the NFL during those two seasons. During Joseph’s tenure in Cincinnati, the Bengals were the only team to have more interceptions (41) than passing touchdowns allowed (36). Cincinnati also led the league in interception percentage (3.3 percent) and touchdown percentage (2.9) and ranked fifth in fewest yards allowed per attempt (6.60) during that span. In 2015, the Bengals ranked second in the league in fewest points allowed, surrendering just 17.4 points per contest. The defense intercepted 21 passes, the third-best mark in the league.

    As the defensive backs coach for the Houston Texans from 2011-13, Joseph helped make major improvement to Houston’s secondary. He inherited the NFL’s worst pass defense (267.5 yards allowed per game) and, in one season, improved the unit to No. 3 (189.7 yards allowed per game) in the NFL. The Texans led the league in opponent completion percentage (51.9) by nearly two points and were second in opponent passer rating (69.0).

    Happy birthday OD!

    29 this year right?

  49. finfanrob says:

    ‘And Gase’s team finished DEAD LAST in their division, which is the object, right’

    i agree dammit. why couldnt ross and company hire one of those coaches that won their division. btw, i guess there was no reason to keep campbell since it is apparently the OC that runs the team

  50. Tim Knight says:

    OD, you speculate about a lot of stuff and maybe you’re right but we all know you don’t like Ross so there is always that in your commentary. If Gase and staff doesn’t pan out you can say I told you so. But I don’t wake up in the morning saying they’re going to suck just because Ross and Tannenbaum hired them. I prefer to see how they coach in games as a staff before evaluating them which I feel is a very logical way of approaching it. Not all this nitpicking and going up and down the ladder of coaching positions and attributing stats to them without really knowing the personnel, game situations, opponent etc.

    In the name of trying to put all these new coaches down, I see a lot of fans fabricating things and now bringing how a guy looks into the picture. LOL

    We know very little about what these guys are capable of as a staff and some are in new roles. How do you think the good young coaches become the next good HCs and coordinators? They get those opportunities at some point.

    People reaching for coaches they know and wished we hired shows you right there how little anyone knows about our new coaches even though they’ve all been coaching for years, some a decade or more.

    Being that we have no choice in what happens here, how about we take a wait and see approach before we knock everyone. So much has to happen first. The roster has begun to churn already at lower tiers, then there is FA and the draft. Then they start coaching and putting systems and game plans into place. We’re so far off of what is being built why blow it up before you ever saw it? LOL

    I guess the gist of my rant is there is a lot of bias here on a lot of fronts instead of having an open mind. What if you’re wrong you end up in some kind of asylum? No we just do it again in 3-4 years. LOL

    By the way there was no big time HC and staff available this year. Most people here didn’t even like Mike Smith who has had the most recent success. So who else, Doug Marrone who had 2 years HC experience on the NFL level and a 15-17 record?

    It wouldn’t surprise me if Gase ended up elsewhere else and in two years had his team in the playoffs and Ross was then getting bashed by us for not hiring the new bright mind in coaching. LOL

    That’s kind of what goes on here. 🙂

    • Tim Knight says:

      Yes, they’ve both explained it for years. But Dolphin fans also want to control who Miami Dolphins owners and others within the org associate with. I mean this is America right? You want someone telling you who to associate with? That sounds like some micro-managed social experiment to me. You don’t like who Ross is friends with, he probably doesn’t care. LOL

  51. finfanrob says:

    so we have the presidents state of the union address tonight.

    here, let me give you all the state of the union. unless one of you fuckers hits the lotto, you have to get your ass up and go to work like you do workday. and the next day and next day and next day

  52. The Flying Pig says:

    I don’t know if the 8th pick is the first pick among teams with the same record

    But if it is
    Then in round 2 we are 9
    And in round 3 we are 10

    And so on and so on

    You rotating down, unless you are in the back

    So if you pick first among teams with the best record
    And 3 or more teams have that record
    You get a real adavantage

  53. Rockphin says:

    Homeraide get your ice cold homeraide heeeeeeyaaraah

    Our new defensive coordinator’s defense last year gave up 18 TDs but had 21 interceptions.

    our secondary gave up 31 passing TD’s and only had 13 interceptions. Cincy gave up a lot of yards but not too many TD’s

    I cannot say that is because of scheme or play calling or coaching or quality of players or luck or what. but it is a stat and can be sipped as Homeraide…..(trying to turn over the leaf again. But it’s hard)

    • Tim Knight says:

      He was the DBs coach, not the DC. So now he’s the main man. See what I’m saying? Climbing down the ladder. LOL

      • Rockphin says:

        I didn’t say he was a DC I said OUR DC (I know he was a position coach.) but I assume he will bring the defense he knows, but then again, that’s an assumption. Who am I to say Gase won’t say “no this is the defense you will install” Doubtful but within his power as HC.

    Tim, we all get your valid points….just having some sarcastic fun here. It’s what fans of losing franchises do. Otherwise you’ll end up in jail, rehab, or the graveyard…lol

    • Tim Knight says:

      Dude, it’s been going on for a week and it is below what you guys are as IQ football fans. I am calling you guys out, it’s very sophomoric stuff even when discussing it seriously. Mock mock mock, I personally don’t find it entertaining after a few hours. If this is the way the blog was when I first joined back whenever, I would not have lasted here and would have moved on. I can’t take all the made up crap. I feel like I’m just getting up to speed with the internet in 1995 and I’m in an AOL chatroom checking what it’s all about and reading stuff that has no substance.

      I apologize if I’m coming off as arrogant and abrasive, I am, I’m just finding myself not being able to have a legit discussion about what’s happening without constant mockery of every move made and new coach added to the team. Do you really know these new coaches?

      Then again it’s a free country and we should be able to associate with whomever we choose. 😉

    I wonder if joseph will wanna keep grimes. He just needs to watch the bills game a couple of times and see what watkins did to him.

    • steveccnv says:

      I posted a list last night of all of our high salary capped players and what their dead money was. I don’t see many from that list that should be on the team in 2016, because of our cap situation. Grimes was one of them.

  58. finfanrob says:


    that was my point about the state of the union is we all have to go to work tomorrow. it really has no effect on our daily lives. half the shit the pres talks about and says is in place has no effect on any of us

    and all of it is 99% pure horse dung for the hungry sheeple. 😉

    yep, i mean i just found out that thru his administration they made it easier thru the internet for people to start there own small business. hmmmmmm who would have thunk it.

  60. finfanrob says:

    But if it is
    Then in round 2 we are 9
    And in round 3 we are 10

    yeah but they got that meaningless win against the pats. boy doesnt that feel good now.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      It probably didn’t crush us

      I hate the patriots
      Philosophically I hate losing games for draft position

      In the first round the difference in a few spots is huge
      But when you get into the draft after day 1 it matters less and less
      You just need those 2nd or 3rd rounders

      It’s doesn’t matter if it’s the 50th pick or the 59th pick
      You will probably get your guy
      You just have to make sure you were right about your guy

      We traded down in the 2nd round last season to get multiple 4th round picks
      And I be we had Phillips targeted

      So I think what really matters is whether we lose out on a guy because he goes a little earlier than 8

  61. finfanrob says:

    who the fuck invited kim davis to the state of the union address. if that right there doesnt tell you the busine….crooked business of politics. she is told to do her job and she basically says no i am not going to and she is rewarded for it.

    Maybe we’ll get lucky and hear more from that tool Sean Penn….LMAO! sheesh

    ??????????????? not sure the comparison of sean penn to that fat disgusting whore

    • getterdone says:

      fat disgusting whore cause she followed her conscious in her religious beliefs like so many other employees do with their various religious practices across the US???

      No connection to Sean Penn, just disgusted by his antics of siding with & hanging out with dictators, communists, & now drug lords. Go live in their country Sean if the US is so bad compared to them….smh.

  63. finfanrob says:


    i am with you on the constant questioning of this new regime. not a person here knows where this is going so the already ‘opie’ comments or calling them out as bad decisions i just dont get.

    however, that all in good fun ball busting i am all for. and i think it is easy to read in-between the lines about the ones just having fun and the ones already saying what bad decisions they are

    • Tim Knight says:

      We all get nuts here and go off track and say crazy things, but when the new coaching staff is coming together live, can it ever get serious? That’s my issue. Factual stuff is overtaken by fluff with speculation and criticism that isn’t really founded. I might as well stare at garbage. It’s not legit stuff moving forward – we threw it out. LOL

      It’s not one comment, it’s a lot of them. What HC and staff name by name would have made everyone sleep better? This should be fun. LOL

  64. Tim Knight says:

    Rock, I’m in wait and see mode. I haven’t once said Gase is great and his staff will be kick ass because I have no idea. The guy was a highly touted young coach in NFL circles though. He wasn’t just linked to us. Ross wanted Harbaugh who the big new college coach candidate in 2011 and he fucked it up. This time he cleaned house and started over and landed what this org deemed as the next new rising HC candidate. Still not good enough for some peeps. Let’s see how it pans out. It could be great, okay or a disaster. I’m not rooting for the latter. LOL

  65. New Age says:

    It’s just two sides of the coin. Some people may be disillusioned or just like to complain. It’s not like sunshine and lollipops has done anything to get this franchise back into decency. It’s also not like complaining has brought a 34 year old Shula back out of retirement.

    All kinds of comparisons can be made and it’s all subjective. What has some validity is that he is young and he’s hiring mainly younger coaches. Their experience has some validity or experience in the job would hold no meaning. The level of meaning isn’t as strong in this profession or Shula wouldn’t have been such a hot commodity or lots of first timers wouldn’t be in the playoffs.

    • getterdone says:

      Agreed. We have just limited and mostly skewed info to go by with the media pundits and then our own instinctual thoughts molded by years of being arm chair QB’s. 😉

    • Tim Knight says:

      There is no sunshine and lollipops, not that I’ve seen. Everyone is on guard. I was pointing out how the excessive mocking has been over the top not really knowing much about who you’re mocking.

      Again who should we have hired and who’s the staff?

  66. The Flying Pig says:

    I’m not a fan of some of the current 2nd guessing either

    The fact is – we just don’t know

    Gase is not an established guy
    But you know what – Bill Parcells was and that didn’t work it so well for us
    Nick Saban was really sought after
    And that didn’t work out

    We really just don’t know

    I will tell you that I am happy they targeted their guy and got him
    Instead of the Harbaugh situation or what we went through in the GM death 2 years ago (even though I liked hickey)

    Ross got his guy
    Now let’s see if it comes together

  67. olddolphan says:

    BOULDER & PIGGY: Thanks, fellas, for the birthday wishes. Looked into my crystal ball and saw two team logos surrounded by the symbol for Super Bowl LI. The logos were the Dolphins and the Cowgirls.
    DON”T you just hate it when your crystal ball starts to show its age? OH-OH-!!! –The “LI” in the crystal ball just got a bit sharper!! NOW it says “VI”, not “LI.” –Oh, well, even crystal balls can be nostalgic!!!! – – Time for Great Grandpa to walk the greyhound and hit the bed. –Talk to all of you eternally hopeful Dolfans real soon.

  68. finfanrob says:


    fat disgusting whore cause she was a cheating slut getting pregnant by some guy while married to another man. then wants to judge others while hiding behind her biblical beliefs when at one point in time they obviously meant nothing to her.

    and nothing wrong with following ones religious belief but if they interfere with you doing your government job, then you have to resign.

    • getterdone says:

      Well, it became such an overblown story. If some clerk doesn’t do their job, or satisfy your needs, then go to another clerk, or take it up with the Sup….next.

      As far as her, I don’t know her personally, nor if that story of her was actually factual. If it was, then OMG, how dare her make mistakes in her life.
      I make mistakes and bad decisions daily. Thank God I have a ‘faith’ that I try to follow, that keeps pulling me back onto the straight and narrow road, or else I’d be dead, in prison, or who knows what.

  69. finfanrob says:

    lmfao overblown story? she is the one at the forefront. i dont think she has done anything to make it go away, more just to blow it up more. and ok, yeah that is it. she made mistakes. funny how her mistakes didnt fit her religious agenda so they dont count.

    tell you what. you can have people like her on your team. she is all yours. make sure to put wonderful people like her out front on your religious card. she is a good face for it.

    • getterdone says:

      No one can follow everything the laws of of God that the bible recorded, or else we wouldn’t need a Savior, forgiveness, grace, & salvation.

      Besides, I don’t have a team. I have me & my personal relationship with God.
      There’s good & bad in all walks of life & professions. If I let the ‘bad’ ones sway me away from my faith, then I’d lost my faith & relationship with Christ a long time ago.

      Be your own man. Do you let bad HC’s, players, and calls from refs keep you away from your love of football? 😉

      Are you perfect? Do you know anybody that is?

      Anywho. Time to wrap it up tonite. Have a blessed and happy day Wednesday my friend.

    I hate the patriots
    Philosophically I hate losing games for draft position

    see piggy, i dont get this. what philosophy. the players and team are not ever trying to lose a game. and my opinion has no bearing on the outcome of a game. if so they would never lose. it isnt a philosophy. it is just if my team isnt going to be a winner and in the playoffs/sb i want the next best thing like the highest draft picks

  71. finfanrob says:

    Are you perfect? Do you know anybody that is?

    well yeah…..i am…. i didnt think that was a question.

    and sorry getter, if you cant point out a person that hides behind their hypocrisy for their own agenda then that is bad. she does nothing to help out the religious side and those that defend her on the side of religion are just hiding behind a fraud.

    • getterdone says:

      I point out hypocrites all the time, mainly cause I’ve caught myself being one as well. So it’s easy to spot them now right? 😉

  72. olddolphan says:

    ONE last ditty: Adam Gase’s offense averaged 21 points a game in 2015.

  73. finfanrob says:


    not saying you dont. but there is way too much of that in out everyday lives now a days. the hypocrites that is. and in my opinion she is one of them and for the leaders to back her is just wrong.

    but anyways, you were leaving and my bad for keeping it going. it was as always a nice chat with you. you have a nice evening and i hope in your dreams kim davis sits on your face. lmfao

    • getterdone says:

      Yuck, now I’m gonna be sick….lol
      I don’t support Kim Davis btw. Whatever ‘leaders’ that do are just playing dog & pony show. What else is new!

  74. Rhino says:

    Fins new TE coach:

  75. Tim Knight says:

    One more thing about Gase when thinking about him game planning. He game planned against defenses for 3 years and called plays as an OC for 3 years engaging in the chess match, right? That’s the important thing.

    I think you might get an idea about how defenses play and what a tough defense does to make things difficult. So you see it from both sides.
