Welcome to Ask Mike – 2016 Season Week 2






from Sonny

Q -Mike, 

Is the chiffon robe growing a fro congruently with Kaep?

The two most telling stats year to year seem to always be scoring and turnovers, we’re behind on both right now. 
One thing I harped on about Tannehill was the lack of 4th qtr scoring and although he has scored in both 4th qtrs so far it hasn’t translated to wins.
So, if we score more and get more turnovers consistently do we become a winning team?


I think what I’ve finally realized is that there is no one formula for winning, in any sport, with any team. There are just too many variables in sports for the contrary to be the case. How many times have we talked about how you need to have a top QB, and then the Denver Broncos go on and win the Super Bowl with possibly the worst QB performance ever, both in the regular season and the SB game itself.

The important thing is to have enough people playing well to help you win. The first week, the defense was lights out, until they tired on that final fatal drive against the Seahawks. This past week, we were down 21-0 in a blink of an eye. I think what we need is a good effort from both units at the same time, dictate the terms of the game, take a lead, and make the other team adjust. That doesn’t happen here often enough, but that would help us on our way to winning our first game.

I really don’t think Tannehill is the problem, and if we get balance on offense, he may even be the answer. Cleveland isn’t New England, but we are in no position to take any team for granted. Isaiah Crowell runs hard, and they have a pretty solid O-line with Joe Thomas and Finsmob Unleashed favorite Joel Bitonio. They actually have a pretty good TE as well in Gary Barnidge, who BTW is thrilled Cameron left for the Dolphins in FA last year.

I’d like to see another good pass blocking job by our O-line, and a more sincere effort to run the ball with whomever we have available at RB, whether that means Foster, Ajayi and Drake, or Ajayi, Drake and Williams, or any combination of those. We need to impose our will on a team, and own the LOS. Defensively, just limit big plays, and make tackles. We can should beat the Browns, especially in our brand spanking new home Hard Rock Stadium.

I’m over Kaepernick, he’s been a disappointment since his star rose in SF, and now he’s JAG, except of course for his protest fame. Also, not a big fan of the “pig socks”, those piss me off!

from Tim

Q – Alrighty then! Is this the week where we play a complete game from beginning to end against a bad team in our home opener?

I sure hope so Tim, this is a team we should be able to compete with. I’ll take an ugly win, because we desperately need one, but I’d much prefer like you said, a complete game by both the offense and defense, and a decided victory. It’s time for that, opening up Hard Rock, in front of our home crowd, which should definitely be a sellout, and as much as a must win scenario as week 3 can possibly bring.

Hopefully, Devante Parker is healthy, and adds that extra threat and go to guy for Tannehill, Cameron builds on the solid game had last week against the Pats, the O-line gets a little nasty, and allows our RB’s to do their thing, and the defense starts tackling, including #41 Byron Maxwell. Time to put on your chin strap and play ball!

from Boulder

Q – Did the Patriots game change your mind as to whether or not this team can make the playoffs?

Actually, no, it hasn’t. It’s going to be harder now because we’re 0-2, but that in no way clinches us out of the playoffs. We do need to start winning some games, but that loss didn’t knock us out quite yet. Win this week against Cleveland is a good starting point, and then we take it one week at a time the rest of the way. Some good play can build confidence and some momentum for our team. If we play well and defeat the Browns at home, the team will feel better about themselves, and Adam Gase will have won his first game as a Head Coach. It will be a big win, but just a start.

from Top Secret

Q – Why will MIAMI completely destroy the Cleveland underwear stains ? thanks, TOP SECRET

We will completely destroy the Browns if We come out hot on offense, move the ball well on the ground and in the passing game, and then hold on defense. Do this a few possessions, and we have a nice lead going into the half, which is something that has yet to happen so far this season. As of this writing, it was just reported that rookie 1st RD pick WR Corey Coleman has broken his hand. That leaves the Browns quite thin at WR, leaving converted QB to WR Terrelle Pryor, Andrew Hawkins, Ricardo Louis and Rashard Higgins, so that helps your cause, and the Dolphins as well.

It’s time Top, we’re home, in our new house, and it’s time to assert our home field advantage NOW! We’ve played well enough to win both games, but came up short twice. This time it’s all us. We may not have to score 30 or more for this to be considered a blow out. I wouldn’t be surprised if we win by 20 or more, we must stop Isaiah Crowell and Gary Barnidge, probably their 2 best weapons. Enjoy the game, and thanks for the question!


And now for the babe of the week . . .

    What about the Miami offense vs the Browns D?

  2. Mike E. says:

    Boulder – I don’t know, he’s had complete dominance of this division for more than a decade, and 3 SB wins, and a couple of losses. That could easily make him the best.

  3. BoulderPhinfan says:

    I agree belicheat is the best coach post free agency. Its a lot harder to keep a team together. But still I’m not sure belicheat will win another superbowl without brady. but who knows.

  4. The Flying Pig says:

    Well they look on the cusp of going 4-0 without him

    And that pretty much makes them a serious playoff contender sans Brady

  5. D says:

    Ya know i think a lot of issue we are having with the idea of protests is that that word has inherent ambiguity. I think to some it means to cause civil unrest, again a word with ambiguity.I think some it means grab attention, but again ambiguity on what it takes to do that.

    I looked back and followed the words of some people who enacted protest that i admire, most specifically MLK who defined it as, and im paraphrasing, using disruption of normal life, to start a conversation between two group who feel no need to communicate. I think we have several examples of that right now, some of which lives up to this goal and some that is destroying it.

    Have you ever had a conversation with someone where, you were debating something and it remains civil, it might really touch off some personal feeling but because the other person didnt get ugly, you didnt get ugly? To me that’s what im thinking should always be the goal of protest and the conversations that happen after. Those people are listening to one another, maybe not agreeing, but they are at very least allowing the seed of understanding to be planted within them.

    These protests that turn violent, or seem spiteful, disrespectful, etc. They have the exact opposite effect. They are that same argument you were having where one side or the other did go over the line, maybe they started screaming, maybe they started using profanities at each other, but one things is for sure, the door shut to the conversation well before the words stopped flowing. No seed was planted on either side, and any crops that were there before just got burned to the ground.

    We as a society must find better ways to protest, and accept protest as not just a civil liberty, but a civic duty. We also need to wake up that the leaders on each side arent leading us towards better protest, but to deeper levels of hate. Media is also stirring the pot by focus its exposure on the examples the hateful ones of each of the two groups. They also are stirring the need to re-enact the 50’s and 60’s, because its good for clicks, or page turns, etc. Scary to think, but Isnt that more reflective of where we are, and where we are going than you think we would be in 2016? Doesnt it suck to think that we are no further along than we were over 50 years ago?

    If you are a fan of history, as i am, that time was not a shining time in our past. I know good things came from it, but it came with a HUGE cost. History and the study of it is to prevent relapses such as that, its supposed to teach us than when you are headed down a road that looks eerily familiar and the destination was a bad on to find an alternate route to get to your destination. It looks too much to me like we are hell bent on going down that road again, despite the “road closed due to damage” sign that is right there in front of us to read.

    What about the Miami offense vs the Browns D?
    Keep them on their heels with tempo, get off to an early lead, before moving to more ball control and clock management. We need that Tempo i think to establish our offensive identity, which i believe once established will carry through even when we move away from it later in the game.

    • D says:

      Basically reverse our previous strategy. Seems to be decent gameplan, we just arent getting to it soon enough and i think its time to try starting with it.

  7. D says:

    I think Belichick could win without Brady. I actually though during the deflate gate scandal, there might actually be a parting of ways then. Belichick threw Brady under the bus, and i was thinking to myself if he is willing to do that, with Brady very capable of just walking away right now, he really doesnt fear losing him. I think if it comes down to it and it becomes the best thing for the team, Belichick would do it in a heart beat. I also think its why Brady has been so willing to give up money so as not to force the issue. Brady wants to remain a patriot, and i think he has loyalties to team and possibly Belichick, but i dont see that as a two way street.

  8. sb7mvp says:

    There’s cases to be made for Belichick vs Walsh, but I still favor the guy who didn’t have a tarnished record of continually pushing the envelop or purposely breaking the rules. Also, not one coach from the Belichick tree can reproduce what he does. It’s like I said, a coach that can coach coaches as well. Is what you teach and coach repeatable by others. Coaching isn’t just winning, there’s a lot of teaching involved as well.

    • stangerx says:

      I both hate Belichick and respect him…..one can do both. And the fact that the people he teaches can’t after learn to be him just makes him greater in my mind, least when it comes to who runs their team best versus lasting and ongoing NFL legacy.

  9. stangerx says:

    You guys are gonna hate me for it, but I was fine with the Pats winning last night (not that wasn’t rooting against them).

    First reason is I never though we had a chance at the division, and even if it is early seems that issue is out of the way.

    Second one is still rooting for playoffs. Pats are going to play a bunch of teams we might be competing against for the wildcard.

    And third…..our last game is against the Pats at the Rock. If it comes to it, sure would be nice for them to be sitting Brady and most of their key starters.

  10. Mike E. says:

    Boulder – Right, 4 SB wins. Has to be near the top of the list for HC’s, and really, football minds period. He’s a GM, HC, mastermind, he does everything. Very unusual to these days to be able to accomplish that, and he keeps evolving too, which is even more impressive.

  11. sb7mvp says:

    Rioting and Protesting are two different things. A lot of people think they’re the same.

  12. Randy says:

    That game plan only works if you can score. If you go up tempo and don’t score, it puts a great deal of pressure on your defense. It can also put you behind early in games which makes it that much harder to keep pace and win. It sounds good, but it’s very risky. Also, our offense isn’t gonna be playing against a defense that is playing wth a 20+ point lead after the first half and playing a soft, pseudo prevent defense like NE did. Thinking our offense can do that any time they like is a bit speculative. I doubt they can.

    • stangerx says:

      And it is just human nature too. You think you are the better team and you take less risks, figuring you either get the game under control early or then turn it on as needed.

      Think that is part of the reason why we keep losing so often end of the game…..that’s when the good teams pull out the stops they didn’t before.

    • Tim Knight says:

      NE wasn’t playing prevent defense. Not sure what pseudo prevent defense is? Prevent defense is 3 man rush with 8 in deep coverage and that’s not what NE was doing. Yes they played some deep safeties but there was still a lot of man going on.

  13. stangerx says:

    Mike E. says:
    September 22, 2016 at 7:18 pm
    Stanger….. I have Antonio Brown, my man Jarvis Landry, Jordy Nelson and Sterling Shepard, and Jamison Crowder for depth
    That a serious set of wideouts with nice flex factor for the bye weeks down the road.

    How many teams in that league? In an 8 that is top-tier, in a 10 it is dominating, in 12 it is off the charts.

    • Mike E. says:

      12 teams, but my weakness is QB, although I did draft Carson Wentz, so that could help me possibly now and down the line. I have pretty good RB’s too, Forte, L. Murray and DeAngelo Williams. My starting QB was Kirk Cousins, last year I had Cutler.

      • Mike E. says:

        We don’t play Flex, we play 1 QB, 2 RB’s, 3 WR’s, 1 TE, 1 DEF, 1 K

      • stangerx says:

        If I was you would be ditching Crowder and opening up that spot for a RB (you know D-Lo only has one productive week left unless Bell goes down) or something else. Your wideouts are four strong (assuming you can only play three).

      • Tim Knight says:

        We do the same except a TE counts as part of the 3 WRs.

  14. The Flying Pig says:


    organizing people together for a message is always going to attract some bad elements

    That’s just people
    not all are good no matter what the message or what they are trying to communicate

    I don’t think its any different now than it ever has been

    but when something has merit over time, the substance of the protest outlasts the negative elements

    overall American protests have been non-violent historically compared to the rest of the world

    compare the Civil Rights movement of the 60s to something like the French Revolution of the late 18th century
    the need for change ended in beheading of the people in power….OUCH

    Its not new for Civil unrest to lead to violence
    Its kinda the way it is most of the time
    Americans have actually been surprisingly peaceful relatively speaking to the way it happens in the rest of the world historically and in the past
    and I think that is bc our 1st amendment promotes it

    bit no matter whether its peaceful or violent it a reflection of civil unrest
    and that civil unrest doesn’t go away based on the way the message is delivered

    I think overall, despite some heavily covered events, people have done a good job trying to deliver a message nonviolently

    but if people end up belittling the argument of others constantly – well free speech is useless then
    and the problems persists, and social unrests persists
    and who knows what happens then

    I guess we will find out if we keep on the course we are in

    Personally I think one thing different today than we have experienced in the past is the persistence of misinformation and misdirection that we see today

  15. Mike E. says:


    I’m thinking of making a trade for a RB, I also have Ajayi and Chris Johnson as depth

    • stangerx says:

      If you have to play three WRs……that actually makes your trade position for an RB better. I’d be thinking I want the best solid six I can get (figuring one might not be there come playoffs…..which assume you will make).

      Another option is look for that guy with a starting QB type as a back-up.

  16. Randy says:

    They stopped loading the box or flooding gaps, and they were willing to give up the underneath stuff and focus on keeping everything in front of them. Not complete prevent, but they weren’t being aggressive and trying to get us off the field as fast as possible. They were content to let us make the short play and eat up time. They also gave us more offensive opportunities because they weren’t taking chances offensively to push the ball down the field and we’re dealing with a third string QB. They were playing conservatively. Most games aren’t gonna go that way. Hopefully because we’re not down by 3 TDs in the first half.

    • Tim Knight says:

      The Pats were mixing up their coverages and still sending 4 and 5 on the rush at times. Prevent is typically a 3 man rush, 5 defenders about 10 yards deep and 3 safeties deep, one in the middle and one on each side. The idea is to keep everything in front of them and prevent the offense from getting out of bounds or going over the top. The Pats weren’t playing that.

      They did use some more zone mixed with man though and yes they played more conservatively on offense to try and kill the clock. But that’s not prevent defense. LOL

  17. stangerx says:

    Least seems our safeties are working out well, and that was a concern going in. Not for Reshad obviously, but Isa has been solid.


    Miami’s duo of Reshad Jones and Isa Abdul-Quddus is quickly becoming known as one of the best in the league for the opposite reason. They are similar in size and speed and experience. “We can both do a lot so we can disguise a lot,” Abdul-Quddus said.

    “It’s good to have versatile guys in the back end that can cover and run,” Jones said. “That can come in the box and can be an extra linebacker and can go in the back end and be a back end safety.”

    After two weeks, Quddus is the NFL’s 11th-rated safety, and Jones is 14th, according to Pro Football Focus. In pass coverage, Jones is rated as the NFL’s 2nd-best safety (behind Byron Jones, Dallas) and Abdul-Quddus is 10th.

    It’s really early, obviously, but only the duos in San Francisco (Eric Reid and Antoine Bethea) and Los Angeles (Maurice Alexander and T.J. McDonald) rate higher.

    “It’s nice for us because now you don’t create that tendency of Reshad’s always down, Isa’s always in the middle, or vice versa,” Dolphins coach Adam Gase said. “Or Reshad always blitzes. If you can eliminate the always and nevers, that’s the biggest thing for a defense.

    Mike E. says:
    September 23, 2016 at 10:01 am (Edit)
    It’s pretty obvious that he’s the one constant, whether it’s Brady, Matt Cassel, Jimmy Garoppolo, Jacoby Brisset, or Beef Brisket, Belichick has his team ready, and his system seems to work no matter who runs it.

    That’s because he is the devil and has no soul! 😉

  19. steveccnv says:

    People will say Trump said this or that about women. But the truth is Bill Clinton actually treated them like objects. Of his 100s he had on the side, he ruined the lives of many of them.

  20. The Flying Pig says:

    I thought no the greatest coach of all time is the one that actually compel eyes the task of going undefeated

    • Mike E. says:

      Shula didn’t necessarily need the undefeated season, he was great anyway. I think what makes a coach great is the ability to continue to win, and evolve, which Belichick has done well.

  21. The Flying Pig says:

    In case you were wondering

    Shula – 328 wins
    belicheat – 226

    Belicheat basically needs another decade of 10+ wins to overtake Shula

    Maybe he can do that with Brisset or Garapollo 😮

  22. Randy says:

    Hence the reason I said PSUEDO prevent. You can twist that any way you like. Lol

  23. The Flying Pig says:

    Trump eats kittens not puppies Mike

    And washes it down with the blood of small children…

  24. Randy says:

    I think Bellicheat has proven that he is a great coach…probably one of the very best ever. What I think he does well is he gets the max out of his players. Whether that’s thru scheme, structure, practice or whatever…he rarely has players that under perform.

  25. Mike E. says:


    Not sure about the devil, but he might be the emperor . . .

  26. sb7mvp says:

    I think wheeling out Trump and Clinton was Obama’s plan to try to get 4 more years.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      It’s not to late to change the term limit rules…lol

      I always wonder – why didn’t Biden run?
      I’m guessing that the powerful Dema believed it was “Hillary’s time” and just underestimated how bad she was

  27. Randy says:

    A head coach’s ability to prepare his players…and coaching staff too…is part of how you get the best out of them. But yeah…we’re all nitpicking. It’s hard to argue with his success no matter how he has done it.

  28. Mike E. says:


    Amazing that Shula coached for 33 years, and only had 2 losing seasons, and even then, never lost more than 10 games

  29. The Flying Pig says:

    Today Gary Johnson said not to worry about Global Warming bc someday the Sun will engulf the Earth anyway…

    Okay , that’s a little crazy

    I’m still voting 3rd party to drive up the popular vote

    2020 is for more choices!

  30. D says:

    Tim “Prevent” is basically cover 4, or cover 6. Pevent doesnt have to be a 3 man rush, and it doesnt have to have 8 deep. It has 4 deep for sure, as CB’s generally go to a deep zone, and so does both the safeties. The rest can be aligned in all kind of different ways. You do generally sub out a DL or LB for a NB, but you dont have to, and the NB and LB’s dont HAVE to be in a zone, regardless, could have them in man, they could float/spy and then do whatever they think is best depending on the formation, etc. Cover 6 can also be done out of a 4 man front, and DE’s can be part of the coverage options, etc. Prevent isnt really anything standard its a general concept for “preventing” anything deep.

  31. The Flying Pig says:

    I don’t know why it matters what defense the Heats were playing vs the Dolphins

    If they were playing now prevent – Tannehill did what he was supposed to do when that happens, and what he has failed to do in the past

    We ended up being a play away from tying the game

    Houston got shut out

    If the cheats didn’t okay prevent defense – then the Texans failed to exploit that

    You are supposed to exploit whatever defense the defense throws out you
    Not argue which one is harder to beat

    • Tim Knight says:

      Agreed, RT tore it up anyway. Just too late.

      • The Flying Pig says:

        There’s a lot of NFL games won with a late surge

        The reality to me is that we failed to stop the patriots offense in the 3rd qtr on that TD drive and failed to stop them on the final drive which lead to the missed FG

        I think if we do either we leave New England with a win

        I’m not as bothered by the slow starting one dimensional offense and I am with the defense that couldn’t stop anything

      • Tim Knight says:

        True, but if the offense got off to a quicker start it could of just been an old fashioned shootout. You have to win those sometimes.

  32. D says:

    Looks like ASJ cut. Git a DUI last night, and just tweeted a “thank you, next chapter” message a couple minutes ago

  33. The Flying Pig says:

    Oh forget it

    The TE

  34. D says:

    Tim I know what that firm of prevent looks like, but I’m saying that’s not the only coverage call for prevent. If it was you could 100 percent know where to attack it. I’m saying you can line up any number of ways and send any number of players into a prevent coverage. It’s not static formation like you have in your picture

    • Tim Knight says:

      It’s just as static as a base 4-3 or 3-4 formation. I never said you can’t modify it but the Pats were not playing prevent the entire 2nd half. What I did notice is that they played man on one side and off man on Parker’s side. They did not want him beating them vertically.

  35. D says:

    Tim football isnt static like that bro. That prevent defense you posted up there is called Quarters….again its not prevent, its a type of prevent.

    • D says:

      sorry half dollar…not quarters, quarters still has 4 DL

    • Tim Knight says:

      Okay, I really don’t want to split hairs here. That is not a quarters defense either. The quarters defense is played out of a base or nickel formation. What I posted is a classic 3-1-7 prevent defense. You can try to change something that’s been around for many years if you like though. 😉

  36. Tim Knight says:

    Jason Jones turned an ankle in practice and is possibly out this week. So Branch and Fede have to step up with Wake likely playing more snaps as well.

  37. Tim Knight says:

    LOL @ Piggy

    In that 3-1-7 formation, the lone LB in the middle is your best tackler/coverage LB who reads the QB and follows the play wherever it goes. Everyone else has to hold their ground or you could get beat. You want to keep everything in bounds and in the middle of the field and nothing over the top. That’s why it’s called a prevent defense, to prevent the offense from getting out of bounds and stopping the clock, and to prevent big plays and quick scores. Prevent is the key word here. LOL

  38. Rockphin says:

    When I was watching the game last night I was amazed at how the route combinations run by Bellicheat are designed to destroy a zone. At one point Houston had he ILB drop into a shallow zone and NE had the RB & TE cross their routes directly in front of him. Brissett only had to see which way the ILB leaned an throw to the other guy. There wasn’t any thought involved in it for the rookie. If he leans left throw right, if he leans right throw left.

    Bellicheat destroys zones that way. (I won’t even get into the “rub or “pick” routes.)

  39. Rockphin says:

    I am upset with my working conditions here at the office so I am going to protest by stealing the computer, printer & equipment and breaking the windows, kicking holes in the walls and lighting my desk on fire!

  40. BoulderPhinfan says:

    no way. Belicheat might have to suit up against the bills.

    “Report: Jacoby Brissett tore a thumb ligament, may need surgery”

    • Mike E. says:

      Wow! They may have to sign someone, or Julian Edelman can play QB too.

      • Tim Knight says:

        Watch him throw for 300 yards and two TDs and run for two more. LOL

        Garoppolo will likely play, they were in the short week this week and he needed more than 4 days to recover.

  41. The Flying Pig says:

    If they don’t have Brady, Garapollo or Brissett
    and they beat the Bills

    just imagine the Patriot knobslobbing on ESPN and NFL Network

  42. Mike E. says:


    Check your mail

  43. Rockphin says:

    No need to worry if your a pats fan. The referees will take care of everything.

    Other team moving too fast? One of the refs will fake an injury to slow down the game…

  44. Rockphin says:

    “Report: Jacoby Brissett tore a thumb ligament, may need surgery”
    They have 10 days to figure it out.

  45. The Flying Pig says:

    He’s being released bc he was arrested for DUI last night Tim

    I would not call his Bucs career productive

    but we have seen talented high draft picks guys turn the corner on a 2nd team

    I wouldn’t sign him to costs a guy like Simms his roster spot
    but I might sign him as a #3 to give it a shot and see if he an turn that corner for us

    You never know

    Some one is gonna sign him
    he will likely get a new chance somewhere

  46. D says:

    Tim im not changing anything, prevent is not a simple formation…..thats not prevent, its a type of prevent. See the link below.


    • D says:

      Prevent is a defensive concept not a specific formation…..

      • Tim Knight says:

        I pretty much said that and the formation is pretty simple. Never said you can’t alter it a little bit. The classic prevent is usually implemented up by two scores or more and little time left on the clock. It shouldn’t be a huge debate. Nobody plays prevent for an entire half. That’s ridiculous. LOL

  47. Mike E. says:

    Gerry Rafferty’s “Baker Street” is an awesome song. Just saying . . . .

  48. D says:

    I like the idea of signing ASJ, but basically putting him in the leagues substance abuse program as soon as he is signed. Get the kid some help, get him cleaned up and then teach him to be a pro. We have a couple guys on our team who are great pro athletes and could help straighten this guy out.

    • D says:

      From what i understand is he has a history in his short career of letting partying dominate his life, and affect his commitment to his job. Remember he was on a short leash already because of not taking his job seriously, he has some growing up to do and i wouldnt want him actively on our team until he got his shit straight, but he is a really solid player when focused.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      We also have some fuck ups on this team

      Or we have had some fuck ups over the years

    I feel more confident believing we can manage another teams immature or diva cast offs at this point. I definitely feel Gase seems to be able to reach players on a level we didn’t see with Philbin so i feel much more confidant looking at other peoples castoffs if they have some real upside.

    • D says:

      Thats said, im not as down on our current TE group as i am nervous about our RB’s. Has any report of how bad Foster’s injury is surfaced? Do they expect it to be a game, 2 games…?

    • The Flying Pig says:

      Developing a system takes time

      If Gase is our guy – I’m not sure the 1st year of his job is the best time to take chances like this

      I liked ASJ in college
      and like I posted above – a lot of players turn that corner

      but I don’t know who these Dolphins are yet

        Because of years of non playoff football, patience is running out. But when you call for blow it all up which we did, there’s a learning curve. How could it not be?

      • D says:

        Maybe right its bad to compound work, most who have to split their efforts wind up doing neither well. Talent is very much there though so its kind of hard to see that pass by. Id be just as happy drafting OJ Howard, Jake Butt, or Evan Engram next year, but that would kind of mess up your defense for the first 3 picks scenario.

  51. The Flying Pig says:

    well fuck it then
    sign ASJ
    I want to draft all defense next year…..lol

    We play against Jamar Taylor this week who is a starter for Cleveland.

    • New Age says:

      I don’t think he’s a good player overall but he probably knows Tannehill pretty well. I don’t think he can cover what we have no matter how well he may know Tannehill’s habits.

  54. naplesfan2010 says:

    in my 36 -6 prediction I am figuring we get 4 TDs 2 FGs and a safety as the rook gives us a sack fumble safety near the goal line.

  55. D says:

    I have a sleeper TE prospect i like out of Arkansas with a pretty cool name lol. Jeremy Sprinkle. Solid RZ threat, 3 TD in 9 receptions so far this year. Balanced TE skills, reminds me a lot of Bennett.

    I think Mike needs to change the acronym to FBOTW (Former Babe of The Week).

    I won’t get to watch the game tomorrow…Alzheimer’s walk instead.

  61. Mike E. says:

    LOL @ Lisa – That’s funny! Great cause Lisa, WTG!

  62. herdfan says:

    Wow, it just gets better, I just read the Herd’s starting QB is likely out for the game…. 😦

  63. D says:

    Watching an eight year old kid here that knows how to properly track a ball over his back shoulder when receiving. I know plenty of college players that can’t do that crap lol

  64. Ken says:

    Oh man I broke the blog

  65. 81Howie says:

    Just got done listening to Duran-Duran Greatest Hits. Dont tell me how Ghey, that shit was great back then… Oh the Memories! Going home with a different girl every friday and saturday night and partying down at Haulover. Damn If I could do it all again I certainly would.
    Look out! I’m going to Ft. Lauderdale Strip when I come down for the 23rd
    HELL YEAH!!!

    • Tim Knight says:

      I liked some Duran Duran. They were excellent musicians. Music is taste even if not everyone likes it. It’s like making fun of a type of wine or beer. Don’t drink it if you don’t like it.

  66. 81Howie says:

    I almost forgot about Grace Slick…
    Yes I saw her too, July 4th 1986 WSHE gave a free concert on Miami Beach and Jefferson Starship was the band. FRONT ROW as usual but I couldnt hook up with her, for I had my latest girlfriend with me that day. Maybe next time 🙂

    Man I miss WSHE. The rocked! I knew all the DJ’s in 1989. I lived with David Crosby’s sister-in-law and it was quite the party house. Famous bands and artists would come over all the time when they were in town. I met David Crosby, Edgar Winter, George Lucas, All the DJ’s from the local radio stations and several other famous people and got wrecked with them when I was 17. Oh the “good old days” of course the good old days were that good when I had to go into rehab.
