  1. Ken says:

    So Sanchez has landed a job on the Cowboys. Isn’t one their nicknames the Cowpokes?

  2. stangerx says:

    I’m sure the source is his agent, but even if Sitton clears waivers seems a lot of teams will be in the running.

    “One published report indicates the number of teams interested in the 30-year-old Sitton, a three-time Pro Bowler in eight NFL seasons with Green Bay, to be in the double digits.”

  3. The Flying Pig says:

    I think it’s over between colonpokey and Sanchez

    But I sometimes heat colonpokey mutter “Sanchez, I can’t quit you”

  4. Mike E. says:

    Julius Warmsley 73 @JuliusAWarmsley

    S/O to @DanMorganJr he saw something in me and help me stay in this space. Now I have a great opportunity to take advantage of! πŸ‘ Thank you

    He’s one of the good stories of a guy making the cut

  5. Rockphin says:

    His name was Logan Paulsen his name was Logan Paulsen

  6. Rockphin says:

    In death a member of Project Mayhem has a name

    His name is Logan Paulsen

  7. New Age says:

    Wow, a lot to read up on.

    Im going 31-21 Seahags. I think it will take us a few games to really jell. Like maybe 8-10 lol. Philly won their trade and their GM looks really smart today. Bridgewater was the second coming so it will be interesting to see if he ever gets back to form.

  8. The Flying Pig says:

    Where is D?

    Explain this D?

    The SEC didn’t look so good yesterday

  9. D says:

    SEC will bounce back from this. A couple of the teams have really hurt their entire season at this point so yet to see for them the rest I think get straightened out, coaching will kick in. Also a lot if these teams are in first time offenses or with first time QBs or both. Tenn has no excuse but preparation. LSU has shit at QB, just pure trash on that side of the ball.

    • D says:

      Never understood why they were preseason ranked at 5. Their defense is killer though. UF was bad the game wasn’t a blowout but I’m pretty happy with what i saw. The only score UMass got was given to them on 45 yards of penalties and a third strike g CB who had never played a college snap. He got burned on a few double moves.

    GDP has found the official Fest tee shirt

  12. BoulderPhinfan says:

    Armando Salguero @ArmandoSalguero
    The Dolphins have been awarded former Titans receiver Justin Hunter. 6-4. Second rounder in 2013.

  13. Tim Knight says:

    Adam Schefter ‏@AdamSchefter 13m13 minutes ago
    Miami Dolphins claimed former Titans WR Justin Hunter, per source.

  14. manitobafinfan says:

    Samurai in da house. Fins claim Justin Hunter

  15. D says:

    Hunter was a guy I mentioned wanting us to take a shot on

  16. BoulderPhinfan says:

    I agree. I think whalen is probably gone. Too bad. I like him.

  17. D says:

    I was shocked by southern Miss, but not for the reasons probably perceived. I was shocked southern didn’t lead the whole game. UK surprised me with the early lead, they lack the depth or experience in big games and yes that was a big game for them

  18. Ken says:

    Somewhere Piggy bows

  19. stangerx says:

    FEST HELP NEEDED — who is in for the Sat nite before?

    Is the Bills game on Oct 23 at one.
    We’ll get together the Sat night before and Chef Warren tailgate as usghe.
    We have a three-row block in Sec 315 on the aisle towards the 50. That’s on the 15 on the visitors side. They are just like last year’s β€˜cept other end of the field.

    Now need to figure out who will be at the meet-up the night before (important to know roughly how many to plan it).

    IN
    The Flying Pig*
    Hulk*
    Brian NY*
    OD (+1)
    stanger (+1)*
    Chef Warren (+1)*
    Son (+5)
    Rock
    Mike E (+1)*
    markeyh
    Al in MIA (+1)
    Toba (+1)*
    Phindog (+2)*
    getterdone (+1)
    Bookman*

    I put asterisks next to the ones I am either sure or pretty darn sure will be there (but feel free to correct).

    If you don’t have one next to your name — tell me if you will be there on Sat nite or not.

    And if you are on that list but no longer sure you are coming to the game —- NOW is the time to let me know. Even if you ain’t sure…….talk to me.

  20. Tim Knight says:

    Duarte could be signed to the PS.

  21. steveccnv says:

    Just went back and watched a couple of Hunter’s catches, he look ok, but I liked his blocking more. He was the target on the Lippett int, looked like, if Lippett hadn’t come over he would’ve made a nice catch, really got up there. I hope we can find a way to use him at the goal line.

  23. D says:

    Also you have to understand about the SEC losses, one was against another SEC team, there was going to be one loss. Missouri and Kentucky are bottom barrel teams. I expected this losses. The Miss State loss to South Alabama was a mix of not having a QB, and just pure lapse of concentration. I’m actually convinced it will be a down season for them. Same for LSU, though their defense will keep them in games and if they can figure the QB situation out then they might salvage the season. Tenn fame was shocked, UF I had bigger expectations because I want my team to blow people out but it wasn’t bad performance overall.

  24. steveccnv says:

    Dolphins receivers coach Shawn Jefferson previously coached Hunter with the Titans.

  25. 81Howie says:

    Well its certainly further back than 2010
    O’Rob that Falcons game we watched at my Bar, the one where Fasano dropped 3 and some had to be sure TDs…
    Did I have the list with me then?

  26. D says:

    I was sad to see Chris Jones cut as well I think he busted ass and was pretty solid overall. I was hoping they would keep 5 DTs just to keep him

  27. D says:

    Justin Forsett might be a good pickup. Cut Williams add Forsett.

  28. D says:

    Big German monster WR has been cut too. Would only be worth it as a PS stash but he has to clear waivers for that

  29. D says:

    I could see giving Dee Millner a shot as well, gain Intel on the Jets D as well as maybe salvage a former 1st rounder. We don’t have great players at S so it’s not like we would be shooting ourselves in the foot cutting one of our guys for him as a depth player. Depends on his injury

  30. D says:

    Aaron Murray also somewhat enticing and he should be PS eligible.

  31. D says:

    Looks like Pats already picked up Sankey

  32. manitobafinfan says:

    Andre Williams was awarded to the San Diego Chargers

  33. manitobafinfan says:

    Jace Amaro is headed to Nashville

  34. D says:

    That trade for Bradford tells me they aren’t sure if Bridgewater ever recovers from this knee injury.

  35. Mike E. says:

    Stanger

    We’ll be there Saturday night.

  36. D says:

    Steve I disagree, I do think it’s potentially a down year but I expect LSU, Ole Miss, Alabama, Texas A&M, UTenn, UF, Georgia and possibility Auburn, to be really competitive.

  37. Mike E. says:

    Piggy must be ecstatic we got Justin Hunter!

  38. D says:

    Several are going to be on rebuilds this year.

  39. Mike E. says:

    We don’t need Amaro – DUARTE! He will be a Dolphins TE at some point in time.

  40. Mike E. says:

    I think I overreacted to the Bradford. I think it’s pretty fair value. You have to have a solid QB if you want to get to the SB, and Bradford gives the Vikes that shot. It’s risky because of his health, but it’s worth the risk for what they gave up.

    • stangerx says:

      That first is probably going to be no better than say 14 or something. How many guys go bust at that position? They are taking their shot.

  41. manitobafinfan says:

    I agree. I think whalen is probably gone. Too bad. I like him.CONFIRMED

  42. manitobafinfan says:

    Stanger check email

  43. Brian in NY says:

    Hunter was my favorite Samurai coming out in 2013, but I did agree with Piggy in that Hopkins was a better fit for our offense at the time.

  44. manitobafinfan says:

    Colts cut TE Chase Coffman recognize name thats about it..

  45. manitobafinfan says:

    D: yes Sankey to Pats Practice Squad.. Poach Him !!!

  46. Brian in NY says:

    Stanger,
    Keep my asterisk right where it is my friend.

    • stangerx says:

      Would have put yours in all caps if I could on such.

      Let me know if you need advice on your trip stuff. Not like I am South Florida Expedia or anything, but do know what a bunch of people are doing in terms of logistics.

  47. Brian in NY says:

    Dolphins PS:
    OLUlrick John
    S AJ Hendy
    DL Jordan Williams

  48. Ken says:

    Any decent LBs out there after the cuts?

  49. Tim Knight says:

    Brian, Hopkins went in the 1st rd. You’re probably thinking Keenan Allen.

  50. Mike E. says:

    Toba

    I think the Colts claimed Lemonier anyway.

  51. manitobafinfan says:

    Alright off to watch my (probably) Last CFL game of the year.. Go Bombers !!!

  52. son of a son of a shula says:

    Stanger, I’m a little bummed that I don’t have an asterisk by my name but that’s fine. Put one!
    However I am only plus 3 at the moment but I’ll get with you about it.

    • Mike E. says:

      Glad you guys are going to make it Sat. night too! Gonna be a great weekend!

      • son of a son of a shula says:

        Yup looking forward to it.
        We’re going down on Friday night so we have all day Saturday. Beach time!

    • stangerx says:

      The wifey will be pleased. And sorry if I hurt you feelings…….must have been so drunk I missed you the last night before the Fest.

      +3 or +5 no a big deal far as that night, but is as far as tickets. On Tuesday will be locking in the final number. Bought some leeway with our guy (and why would I tell you knuckleheads that?), but that is the final, final deadline.

      Hope you enjoyed the game.

  53. son of a son of a shula says:

    Hunter was my favorite Samurai at the time. Now it’s like having 2 Parker’s.

  54. Ken says:

    List of LB cuts is pretty meh

  55. Tim Knight says:

    Geez! The Canes beat FAMU 70-3? That’s not fair competition and what’s wrong with college ball.

  56. son of a son of a shula says:

    Stanger, glad it won’t be a problem for the tickets. Let me know otherwise please. Plus 3 for sure for Saturday and Sunday. Reservations are made.

    • stangerx says:

      Son — would like to know on the tix. That is what I’m faced with now. Will be putting in the final Tues.

      Getting ready to order my Orange pass……you want me to get one in for you to save the fees?

      And where are you guys staying? Seems ground zero is La Quinta.

      • son of a son of a shula says:

        Only need 4 tix total.
        Don’t need parking pass since we will get on the shuttle
        Yes staying at LaQuinta
        I do have a tent I will be bringing (not tent but one of those sun shades like everyone has)

      • stangerx says:

        Cool Son — and thanks. Helps.

        Who are the plus two? You bring good folks.

  57. D says:

    Mike you didn’t overreact to the Bradford deal, you just didn’t have all the info before.

    If he was a 1 year stop gap the it was a completely horrible trade, but as the info filters in about the severity of the injury, it’s like picking up a guy to be your franchise guy without having to tank the current season to get him.

    It’s smart if the case is Bridgewater very likely done, and at least right now it really seems like that. They also don’t have to have a really bad season in the midst of launching a new stadium, etc. They can’t afford to lose attendance right now.

  58. son of a son of a shula says:

    The two additional are friends of ours, a couple, they haven’t been down before but good people – fun people.

  59. Brian in NY says:

    Tim,

    You are correct sir. My mistake.

  60. Tim Knight says:

    Has anyone heard from Capt. Stubbs?

  61. D says:

    He probably isn’t Tim but they almost had to make that deal. If they don’t they lose attendance this year, they likely list it 2 more years after that while the rookie pick gets acclimated to the system. 3 years of low attendance in a new stadium with costs of paying it off looming. It was desperation.

  62. D says:

    FAMU probably made a mil plus for that game. It really helps their program, unless they make a habit out if doing it year after year.

  63. D says:

    Lemonier is more DE for us, I don’t think he has coverage skills. He MIGHT be a 2 down OLB considering we run the wide 9 but he would have to come out on passing downs

  64. D says:

    On paper, Hunter was better than any of the other samurai’s. You don’t play this game on paper though. Also as far as their rookie year production, Allen and Williams I think had better years than Hopkins. Hopkins has just really took off since then.

  65. D says:

    IMO of recent receivers as far as my pre draft feel of them, the two receivers I have felt best fit our team was OBJ and Amati Cooper, third place would be Parker.

  67. Tim Knight says:

    The Cards signed Dysert to their PS. My guess is Doughty won outright and is the guy they want to develop.

  68. bookman11 says:

    Stanger,
    I am good for one for the Fesat game and for the Saturday night before.
    It is going to be my own little “summer of George”.
    Going to NY with my wife the rest of the week.

  69. 81Howie says:

    Oh boy a Fest, Sorry I cant make it πŸ˜‰

  70. son of a son of a shula says:

    Stanger, it would be great to see Stubbs and if he showed up with Capt Randy.
    I’d like to see any of the guys from our sister blog if they showed up.
    Good times

    • stangerx says:

      Stubbs is one cool cat. Still laughing at how he was Megatron at the first Fest.

      And I have nothing particular against the “sister” blog folks. And not like the Fest is invitation only.

  71. herdfan says:

    So who won the contest? I’m not at home this weekend and the internet here is SAF!

  72. Tim Knight says:

    Armando Salguero ‏@ArmandoSalguero 11m11 minutes ago
    Dolphins PS: James Burgess, Jamil Douglas, Thomas Duarte, A.J. Hendy, Ulrick John, Cleyon Laing, Lafayette Pitts, Rashawn Scott.

    • son of a son of a shula says:

      That’s cool they were able to hold on to Jamil. I still have hope for him.

      The squad looks pretty good. I wonder who’ll get the remaining spots.

      • steveccnv says:

        Douglas has a mental block, would be my guess as to why he didn’t play better. If he figures it out he may be a decent starter.

      • Tim Knight says:

        Armando Salguero ‏@ArmandoSalguero 19m19 minutes ago
        Jordan Williams also in Dolphins practice squad.

        He was reported early but I think it was just a matter of officially signing. We have one more spot open.

        It’s good to have a bunch of guys who have been here and know the system. But some of these guys definitely need work and that’s what the practice squad is for. It also doesn’t mean that they didn’t show good things, but they got caught up in the numbers game.

    • steveccnv says:

      I don’t recall a PS before that had so many players I know. Usually it’s a bunch of fodder.

  73. bookman11 says:

    Stanger,

    You are going to shit when you find out I actually look like that. Lol

    • stangerx says:

      In all fairness, so you have fair warning — I ain’t nearly as good looking as American Idol winner Kris Allen, even I play him on a blog.

      • bookman11 says:

        Fair enough… Don’t really care what you look like, like knowing what a librarian does in her spare time, I don’t WANT to know.

      • Tim Knight says:

        LOL

      • stangerx says:

        Thanks dude…..just preparing you. And notice not one of the guys who have met me stepped in with even a “but he’s a good guy.” Only TIm — who has — with a mocking “LOL.” You are born with what you are and then move on in life.

    • son of a son of a shula says:

      Someone said GrAntman stays because he’s the return man but I bet Drake is our returner. He looked really good and like a natural for it. He has the juice to break some too. Not that GrAntman doesn’t but he doesn’t look as natural and he hesitates every so slightly but enough to miss a good crease. Drake gets up to speed fast and just goes.

      • son of a son of a shula says:

        Sorry shouldn’t have been a reply but I was going to ask if you’d be dressed like an umpire

      • Tim Knight says:

        Grant and Drake on KRs and Grant on punts with Landry backing up both in a pinch on game day. I think when Grant gets caught up to the speed of the game he’s going to be lethal. Drake has NFL measurables at 6-1 215 where Grant has size limitations at 5-7 170.

  74. Tim Knight says:

    Steve, Douglas may also be a bit overwhelmed playing all 3 interior spots because he doesn’t standout at one. Remember he was a LT in college, was drafted as a guard and started working at center in-season last year. He’s only 24 so he’s still a young developing guy. We continue to hear how many young OL are not ready coming out of college and he might be one of them.

  75. Tim Knight says:

    Son, some good signs are Thomas and Turner are not starting but are now backups. We pushed them down with upgrades. How good are we going to be on the OL, don’t know yet but pass pro looks to be better. Run blocking is hard to determine because they can rarely get that physical in TC and in practice due to the new CBA rules. So we’ll see if they get better after playing 60+ snaps per game rather than 7-25 as the starting 5.

  76. Tim Knight says:

    Stanger, I was laughing at Bookman’s librarian comment, not what you look like. LOL

    We only get like 3 replies before you have to reply to a prior comment to get into the thread. πŸ™‚

    • stangerx says:

      Thanks TIm — that was most kind of you., but don’t worry about me (jk). And sorry if I break up the stream……I go comment by comment.

      • Tim Knight says:

        I do the reply to the first comment all the time when it runs out. I never understood the disdain for the reply. Bat can you hear me? LOL

        It allowed a conversation to stay concentrated and if it wasn’t of interest you move on. Sometimes conversations without it are not that clear with what people are talking about.

      • stangerx says:

        Bat would be proud…..speaking of people we haven’t heard from in a while, but certainly a given and take on focus versus free flowing.

  77. son of a son of a shula says:

    Wow the Texas offense goes FAST

  78. bookman11 says:

    I like our return and screen game with Drake and Grant.

  79. son of a son of a shula says:

    What a catch
    What a throw by a true freshman in his very first series

  80. bookman11 says:

    Son and Tim,

    It will be nice to have that type of playmakers, almost as a luxury. Kind of shows they are building depth in some areas

    • Tim Knight says:

      We’re creating more mismatches. We have to start and did late last year pushing the ball down the field more and making more individual big plays. You can’t keep doing 2-5 yard plays and expect good things to happen. Someone has to pop one here and there.

  81. Phindog says:

    Stanger.. Everyone knows you are one helluva guy.. We are looking forward to seeing you and everyone else .. We will be there for sure on Sat. I just got to remember not to try to keep up with Toba with the beers… Hey but at least I try ..

    • manitobafinfan says:

      Try not to woof yer cookies 😎

    • stangerx says:

      P-Dog — I was just making a joke….and am who I am, including looking forward to seeing you and the dog clan. And if you are worried about Toba…..don’t end up late Sat night with the crew that includes Son and The Pig.

      Me too on a given night, but then someone has to set up the tailgate. πŸ™‚

  82. Ken says:

    Glad we were able to get Duarte on to the PS

  83. The Flying Pig says:

    Well it only took about 4 years but finally

  84. son of a son of a shula says:

    Stanger this year will be worse with my friend Bob there

  85. The Flying Pig says:

    Brian
    It wasn’t Hopkins who was the last samurai taken
    It was Keenan Allen

    It’s sad but I can still tell you the order

    Tavon Austin
    Then Deandre Hopkins
    Then cordarelle Patterson
    Justin Hunter
    Robert Woods
    Terrence Williams
    Keenan Allen

    They were actually 7 of the first 8 WRs taken
    The patriots took Aaron Dobson between woods and Willims

    You probably remember me freaking out over not taken allen
    Who was available right before we picked in the 3rd round
    Then the Chargers took him and we took Dallas thomas

    Now I’m going to go puke

  86. son of a son of a shula says:

    Bat, Tripod, finfanrob all missing
    Check in guys the season is starting

  87. The Flying Pig says:

    If you build it
    They will come

    (Piggy grabs a hammer)

  88. Tim Knight says:

    I was thinking about what the team is doing now and it’s all about Seattle. This would be a huge win and don’t think Gase doesn’t want some payback after that SB loss in 13/14. I bet that game eats at him.

  89. steveccnv says:

    JJ Watt expected to play opener. They play the cheats on Sept 22 Thursday.

  90. Brian in NY says:

    That ND/Texas game was a thriller last night!

  91. olddolphan says:

    Truly an an unbelievable game between Texas and Notre Dame! – -When we lived in the Austin area (2005-2008) I and several co-workers attended the Florida Atlantic-Texas game that opened the 2008 season. About 100,000 were present to see the first game in the newly expanded home of the Longhorns. It was a day to remember! QB Rusty Smith moved the Owls smartly down the field to a first and goal at the 2! On the next play, FAU’s center snapped the ball over the top of Smith (who, at 6′ 5″ was a large target) resulting in Smith suffering a separated shoulder! Texas rolled from that point onward to an easy win. But I’ll always remember both the huge stadium and the fans, NONE of whom were nasty or belligerent at all. In my experience, Longhorns fans are good fans, indeed.
    —————————-
    SON-OF-A-SON: Saw your UCF Knights won a lopsided victory on Saturday. And, speaking of impressive, U of Miami’s 70-3 destruction of FAMU bodes poorly for Florida Atlantic’s visit to HARD ROCK STADIUM this coming Saturday. The Canes game was a virtual sell out; and there are no good seats left for the FAU game so your’s truly will stay at home rather than sit in the top row of the end zone. While “the U” should be favored by about 3-4 touchdowns over FAU, I believe there’s a chance this game will be competitive for awhile. Owls QB Jason Driskell, younger brother of current Cincinnati Bengal Jeff Driskell, was 23-31 for 287 yards and two TD’s versus Southern Illinois in FAU’s 38-30 win Saturday. Driskell even ran for a third touchdown in that game. Last year FAU led Miami early in the 3rd quarter. But the Canes knocked out FAU’s starting QB and best running back and pulled away to a comfortable win in the last quarter. IF Driskell can stay in the entire game THIS coming Saturday, I believe FAU could keep this game respectable. But I’m certainly not expecting the Owls to spring the humongous upset. Key FAU players draftnics ought to watch: 1) Defensive end Trey Hendrickson, 6’4″, 270 lbs who had 13.5 sacks last season, despite many double teams in his face. His speed and strength are NFL quality; 2) WR Nate Terry, 6’6″ 220 lbs, a dangerous combination of height and speed who should give shorter UM defensive backs some real problems. 3) RB Greg (Buddy) Howell, 6’1″, 205 lbs, a faster (though not as accomplished) version of Alfred Morris who had TWO long TD runs in the first game. And 4)Jason Driskell, only a sophomore and not draft eligible. Those who have seen him practice on a regular basis believe he is better than his older brother was when HE was a sophomore at Florida. Driskell and Howell will benefit from the best offensive line in FAU’s 16 year football history. HOWEVER, FAU’s defense is a huge question mark. Southern Illinois rang up about 500 yards in total offense–a number that figures to be exceeded by Miami’s fast and talented offensive players. I’m expecting “the U” to win by something like 45-24 or so. But, as South Alabama proved on Saturday, miracles DO happen.

    I speak to Try on FB, and yes, Bat said he’s been really busy, and in general, feels the necessity to stave off the optimism here, but just doesn’t have the time. lol

    FFR (Rob) I do miss, and wish he’d come back on

      MIKE: HOPE you and everyone up your way remains safe from Hermine. –Pasco County, which borders Hillsborough (TAMPA) about 2 miles north of us, has hundreds and hundreds of citizens still in shelters. 7 residential areas in Pasco ARE STILL under several feet of water and likely will be deemed unlivable when the flood waters finally recede. Most of these homes either do not have or can not buy flood insurance, according to one local station. As some of you may/may not know, the major insurance companies will NOT offer homeowner’s insurance for the vast majority of Florida homes because of the hurricanes of 2004-2005. So CITIZENS’ INSURANCE was created by the people of Florida to cover these homes. Hermine is the first storm to hit Florida since Wilma in 2005. There are scattered reports that the big home insurers, like State Farm and Nationwide, want back in Florida. However, older home owners (like me) have long memories. Many will tell State Farm to stick their policies up their asses, no matter WHAT the rates are.

  93. I got 49 correct on the 53 but called 5 PS guys so I WIN!!!!

      YOUNG STANGER: Hope you caught my reply up the page. Looks like I’ll be there. But I’ve been unable to coax Mrs. OD to attend any more games since that security incident in the parking lot Sept. 13, 2014. I’m still working on her, though, understand, she’s LESS of a Steve Ross fan than I am. As for Jim, my B-I-L who has only missed 3 home games in Dolphins’ history, I’m trying to get him to renew for the following season, too, despite comments that this will be his last season. Maybe you could work on him a bit when we get together at the Browns’ game.

      • stangerx says:

        OD — an sorry how your lucky penny feels, especially now that she will be in the shade. Never was with her in the stands, but she sure does like sitting with your crew in the RSVP good food section before.

        And be more than happy to talk to JIm. Far as I know he get along real well.

        Not like the pitch is hard — never come to another game in your life and you make money by keeping your seasons. After that…..we are talking about three home Phins games missed ever. I’m thinking a guy who goes to rehab and then decides to just make dealing the Phins drug his business.

  95. Phins pursued CJ in FA. Hillman has that same potential and they can probably get him cheaper than what Anderson would have cost them in FA. He would also be a great addition to the rb unit with his speed and catching ability and if Drake comes along that’s an even bigger plus.
    I would be all for the team pursuing him in order to solidify the unit. Pead, while he looked good in PS, has never shown himself to be consistent and is a big ?? and, although I like Williams, it’s not like he’s not replaceable. I say go for it.

  96. BoulderPhinfan says:

    Son,
    You have jones (52). Is that the guy that made the team or the DT that got cut? I’m doing the correct calls counts.

  97. To me, 5 rb’s is a waste. I’d rather see the team cut Pead and add Carl Bradford to the LB unit.

  98. BoulderPhinfan says:

    Herd,
    Just went through and did the number of correctly calls.I have the roster at the bottom. Please double check my work. I think Son has won (depending on which jones he meant made the team)

  99. Pead’s got a hammy. Phins could be keeping him around until he’s healthy enough to waive without a settlement.

    Obama would rather see a person like Kaep do what he’s doing, instead of just sitting on the sideline, so instead of bringing it up in a different way he’s ok with this platform. What a deuche, so he’s ok with issues that divides the country brought up in sports. Yet he does nothing about the issue himself, except make things worse, just to keep the black vote.

  101. In his career, Pead has 19 att for 78 yds. in ’15 he had 2 att for 3yds and fumbled on 1 of them but he’s this great addition. LMFAO!!

  102. Phins fans always complaining we don’t develop our own guys and yet are willing to part ways with a young, developing player for someone who’s never shown any ability in the four years he’s been in the league and is injured AGAIN. Simply don’t understand the logic behind this.

    • D says:

      Because Williams has never shown anything either in his 3 years.

      • D says:

        It’s devil you know vs devil you don’t. Most of us here know Williams isn’t anything special, we haven’t been as closely involved with Pead so there is more hopeful optimism

  103. D says:

    It’s nice seeing all the guys I liked that were part of the 53 cuts made their way back to the team on the PS. If you combined the guys on the PS with the one I put us down as keeping, I’d have 100% lol

  104. The Flying Pig says:

    This is interesting

  105. D says:

    Steve politicians are all pro dividing the country instead of uniting them. Dems in general use this tactic to place an us vs them game with their voting base. It’s sick because it’s destroying thus country for the sake of a selfish power struggle of an elite few who have not real attachment to what we suffer through on a daily basis.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Well said. I’m so sick of it and a lot of people don’t even realize that it’s going on.

    • steveccnv says:

      Couldn’t agree more, that’s why I’m anti politician. The phony stuff some of them do is beyond belief. A member of my family is in the navy, he said his ship was down in Haiti after the earthquake, and what Hilary did was so over the top despicable, not to mention if he had done 1% of what she did with the handling of docs he’d be in prison.

      I asked, then why doesn’t anyone do anything about it, and he said they’re scared, those that have are dead.

  106. D says:

    If that was over the span of past 10 years. Then that means 48/64 1st and 2nd rounders are still on teams, where as 48/256 UDFAs are still on teams. That makes things look really really different doesn’t it

  107. Tim Knight says:

    It’s not about what Pead has done in the past, it’s what can he do in the present and future?

    Look at a guy like Justin Forsett, he didn’t do much early on in his career and then has a career year with almost 1,300 yards in 2014. It happens.

    • D says:

      I agree and I think what I saw in PS with Pead is a little of that coming out. I mean technically we are arguing the quality of the table scraps at this point but I just feel there is a higher ceiling and better skill set with Pead.

    • steveccnv says:

      Come on Tim, we all know the only thing that matters are the stats. You are what your stats say you are πŸ˜‰

      A guy runs for 10 yards, but it’s called back for a holding call that had nothing to do with the play isn’t important as a guy that ran for 4 yards on a play he should’ve busted it for 60.

    • Tim,
      One could argue Forsett is a one year wonder too because that one year is all he did. I guess we could make the same argument for Williams then. I saw what the kid did at OU and he’s got the ability. So, maybe he’s a late bloomer as well. All I know is you don’t take a kid who’s still got upside and has shown nice hands, nice ability to run after the catch and has been a major st’s contributor and cut him in favor of a guy who’s a huge ??? at this time.

  108. D,
    Williams is only in his 3rd yr and is a young, developing player who HAS done things to help this team. We know what we’ve got with him and I don’t believe he’s hit his ceiling. People want to make all kinds of excuses for RT when it comes to the o-line but look at the run blocking for a guy who comes in to carry the ball once or twice a game and can’t even get back to the L.O.S.
    I don’t know how anyone can say Pead’s got a higher ceiling when he’s been in the league four years and has shown shit. boggles the mind.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Williams is a core STs guy who plays on all the units, he’s a very good receiver, word is he’s improved his blocking but he’s only and average runner, but that’s why he’s on the team. He can do a lot of jobs on game day and that’s important to coaches and that’s why he keeps making the team even with a new coaching staff.

      • steveccnv says:

        I’d agree with that, but saying he’s an average runner I’d like to break that down further. He’s better than average running outside, on a scale of 1 -10 I’d say 7 with decent speed and good vision, running inside I’d say he’s a 2 with horrible vision being his only problem, unless he’s afraid to get hit by the uglies.

      • steveccnv says:

        The only real problem with Williams is at times we need someone to run inside and no one last year could do that, so he didn’t compliment what we already had.

      • but that’s not on him. that’s on the fact that we didn’t have someone who could run inside. his best attribute is his speed to the corner. if you give him hole thru the line and he hits it he could be gone for a nice gain but the fact that the o-line can’t open holes for anyone is more of a problem than anything

      • steveccnv says:

        Unless the hole is 9 feet wide Williams can’t run inside, which is very infrequent. When watching tape of Foster and Pead I see guys that setup the defender, then juke to create their own hole, Williams just runs up the gut maybe hesitates, but he doesn’t know how to create any space or find the hidden hole.

      • Pead has done nothing of the kind.

      • steveccnv says:

        Go back and look at Pead’s long run in game 1. He’s also done it in the regular season with the Rams. He does less good things than Williams, but what he does the team needs.

  109. stangerx says:

    Our new Samurai Justin Hunter is 6’4″. I could see a red zone scheme with him and Parker at wideout. And both Parker and Cameron are an inch taller. Might make some shortish dbs very worried.

  110. steveccnv says:

    I hope Devante plays, even if he doesn’t do anything in the game, just to keep Sherman occupied.

  111. Yet, come Sunday, Williams will be active and playing st’s at least and Pead will be inactive shining the bench with his injured ass.

  112. stangerx says:

    Guess we never had a chance on him anyhow. Given the contract, does make me wonder that the Pack knew and the Bears don’t. Dude just pretty much blew his chance at the next superbowl at least.
