    Football season always goes by so quickly. I can’t believe there’s only 3 games left.

    Pouncey goes on IR

    So there is your roster spot

      Disappointing, but he obviously wasn’t going to be healthy this season, so it makes sense

    The Pig Next Door is a every ladies’ dreamboat

  7. Anyone hear about the London game we have next year? It’s a home game for us vs the Saints. Is it me or do we keep getting screwed over and losing an actual home game because we have one in London?

    • Mike E. says:

      It ain’t you Vinnie. I think it sucks. Only good thing is our pal UK gets to see our team play in his backyard.

    • BoulderPhinfan says:

      Ross can make a few more million dollars. Look at the other teams that are giving up home games to play in London. Browns, jax, rams. Shitty teams that can’t fill their stadiums. I guess we’re one of those shitty teams.

  8. bookman11 says:

    I would suspect we will not have to play a London game in a good long while after next year. Ross made the deal when they got the 2020 Super Bowl.

    It sucks though, after a season in which they will be either 6-2 or 7-1 at home, and the fan base is returning.

  9. The Flying Pig says:

    I’m okay with the London game

    We will have to settle For 7-0 at home next year…lol

  10. ukfinfan says:

    I need to check with the g/f – her daughter gets married next year, but I think it’s week 2 and the game will be week 3 or 4. Which is good cos I will get a ticket for my Chrimbo pressie :-). There is also some debate about k.o. time which may still be under negotiation, with Americans wanting a traditional 1pm k.o., but that’s a 6pm k.o. (uk time) and it sux for me as I have a 4 hour+ drive home after the game has finished so I’ll be getting back on Monday then!
    Suck it up Vinnie …….. your loss is my gain.
    Think you are right Bookman – the Jags will play loads of games in the uk, but this may be the last for the Fins for quite a while.
    It was my birthday on the 5th, so we went away for a long weekend and I missed the Ravens game. I just had a bad feeling abt that one. I was spot on. Shite. But that slopfest win over the (house of) Cards was a thing of beauty, at least in the eye of this beholder. Gutted about Tanny. He put so much work in to get to the brink of the p-word. So glad our very own Dr. E refused to declare his hand (:-))early and it’s a lot better than the initial prognosis though. Go Moore, go Tanny, go Fins. Fvck yeah!

    • stangerx says:

      They tag London games to bye weeks after. So earliest it can be is week 3…..very earliest, but most likely after that..

      And wasn’t the game against the Cards what we are getting used too. Ugly as heck with us winning in the end…….maybe we are just getting lucky or maybe we have a coach.

    Do we know what divisions we are playing next year?

    AFC West and NFC South

  14. Mike E. says:

    We already won in SD, but KC is a different beast altogether. Very tough to win at Arrowhead.

    T.J. Yates has played in 18 games since 2011. He has thrown for 1,534 yards, 6 touchdowns and 8 interceptions

    you are fucked….lol
    I suppose if you have some kind of applicable experience that would make one the lawyers think you are impartial, they probably don’t want you.

    There is no magic word
    and in CA they may view it different than NY
    So that is the best I got for you

  17. The Flying Pig says:

    Oh nope
    that’s I’m wrong
    we played the AFC South last year
    How could I forget the Texans Fest game
    you are right
    its NFC South and AFC West

    • The Flying Pig says:

      So there will likely be a west coast game

      but the good news is the chance sof a cold weather game outside of the division seem less likely

  18. Phins opt for experience in the backup rather than bringing up Doughty.

  19. herdfan says:

    I got out of jury duty once but I had just had a baby. Don’t think that’s going to work for you phindog.

    TJ Yates has more career playoff wins (1) than 6 of the 12 starting QB currently holding @NFL playoff spots.

  21. Mike E. says:

    Lou = Pouty for Doughty

  22. Mike E. says:

    So there’s the roster spot. My guess is Dion is finished

  25. stangerx says:

    I’m thinking with Moore in there that Parker is going to be his go to wideout. Moore just don’t have a cannon. Thinking he’ll be going to the big guy on the loopy pass mid-to-deep rather than throwing the laser like Tanny can on the break routes. Might be a good day for Sims too.

  26. Tim Knight says:

    So we signed T.J. Yates?

  27. Tim Knight says:

    Moore can’t just throw deep passes, he has to run the offense. We need to run the ball and be balanced but the Jets are pretty good against the run so he’s going to have to move the chains with some short and intermediate passes.

  28. BoulderPhinfan says:

    LOL @ pft

    12. Dolphins (8-5; No. 13): If the Dolphins make the playoffs with Matt Moore, Adam Gase isn’t the coach of the year; he’s the coach of the decade.

  29. BoulderPhinfan says:

    I don’t understand why this wasn’t a flag. We’ve been getting shafted by the refs the last few games. Like the fumble that ajayi clearly recovered and they gave the ball to cards

  30. The Flying Pig says:

    Pouty for Doughty is nowhere near as catchy as Farty for Duarte

    There is something about Farty for Duarte that sort of lingers in the air so you can’t forget it
    Don’t you guys agree?

  31. naplesfan2010 says:

    very surprised about the Yates signing although he did win a playoff game. This must mean A) they do not think Tannehill can play again this year, B) Doughty is too raw to trust at all, and C) we are going to the playoffs.

    The fumble thing is baffling. It seems they prefer a scrum as opposed to having a player get possession, and then as soon as they are touched, the play is dead

    I meant actual NFL playing experience. It’s a lot to throw a kid in there who hasn’t even played in an NFL game yet. He’s been on the PS the whole year

  38. Tim Knight says:

    There’s been so many non calls this year and calls that are bogus that I gave up complaining about them.

  39. Tim Knight says:

    I don’t think the coaches feel Doughty is ready. He’s very thin and needs to get a little bigger and stronger. Let him soak up the playbook and learn while watching and then he can compete next year.

    does it matter who the back up to the back up is? if moore gets hurt whatever chance of the season is left is done with

  42. Ken says:

    I like Yates. He is a competent backup. He has won some games in relief for the Texans

  43. Ken says:

    Fucking another London game 😡

    • naplesfan2010 says:

      unfair to make us play so many of these when 9 teams have never had to do that. (3 more new ones will go in 2017.)

      • Tim Knight says:

        They didn’t make us play it, we signed up for it. Remember the NFL is a business first and sport second.

  44. Mike E. says:

    Rob

    In 2014 the Cardinals needed to go to their 3rd string QB in the Playoffs against the 7-8-1 Panthers. The Cardinals got killed with Ryan Lindley as their QB.

    Oh wait . . . lol

  45. The Flying Pig says:

    I don’t know why people get so mad at the London game
    I don’t get it at all

    Yeah its not a home game
    its not the other teams home game either

    I love that we have a steady London fan base

    we can’t have the Saints game be the Fest game
    big fucking deal
    we have 7 more options

    God Save the Queen!

  47. naplesfan2010 says:

    Moore has a career passer rating of 90.8 in December.

  48. naplesfan2010 says:

    • Moore’s last touchdown pass came Oct. 28, 2012 on a 4-yard hook-up with tight end Anthony Fasano in the third quarter of a 30-9 victory against — who else? — the New York Jets.

  49. naplesfan2010 says:

    Moore’s last start with the Dolphins came in the 2011 regular season finale when he completed 22 of 32 passes in a 19-17 Dolphins victory.

    • Ironically, that game came against the New York Jets, which also happens to be the team he faced when he made his first start for the Dolphins in place of an injured Chad Henne in Week 6 of the 2011 season.

  50. Ken says:

    Piggy:
    I don’t like the London games because I think that level of travel on the team and I don’t like losing home field advantage for one game. That is especially so if it’s an early season game where we have a big home field advantage with the early season heat and humidity

    • bookman11 says:

      I don’t like it particularly for next season because the fan base is building and I would like to see as many home games as possible, especially after the success this year.

      If Ross made the deal as part of getting the 2020 SB, I guess that is just cost of doing business.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      we will get the BYE week after the game
      its either a week 3 or 4 game
      hopefully 4
      we get bye week in week 5 that way

      the other team has to travel to
      its not like a road disadvantage
      is kind of di minimus at the end of the day

      We have played well and poorly in London
      if we were bad every time
      I would be superstitious about it

      traveling to a west coast game to play in some on e else’s home is actually far worse than traveling to London to play another traveling team

      don’t worry about the weather early in the season
      if climate change continues the direction we are in it will be 90 degrees next December…lol

    Hey! On my birthday no less! Glad someone hooked up then. Lol

  52. Tim Knight says:

    Matt Moore is capable for sure. He’s proven it. That’s why he holds the position he does for 3 HCs in Miami now.

  54. wyoming85 says:

    Dolphins DE Dion Jordan will remain on the NFL’s NFI list this season, a league source confirms. He will not be activated this season.

    James Walker, ESPN Staff Writer

  55. Mike E. says:

    Tim no idea, but I feel like Jordan’s time has just about run out here.

  56. The Flying Pig says:

    what the fuck is the NFI list?

    Never Fucking Ingame!

  57. The Flying Pig says:

  58. wyoming85 says:

  59. naplesfan2010 says:

    no Dion Jordan this year.

  60. naplesfan2010 says:

    Moore compiled a 6-6 record as a starter in that 2011 season, but helped the Dolphins win six of their last nine games.

    • During that nine-game span, Moore passed for 15 touchdowns and only five interceptions and had a passer rating of 97.8.

    • That passer rating was the sixth-highest in the NFL during that span, behind only those of Drew Brees (121.6), Aaron Rodgers (119.5), Tony Romo (114.5), Tom Brady (106.5) and Matt Ryan (102.3).

  61. naplesfan2010 says:

    In that 2011 season, Moore had three games with a passer rating of 122.3 or higher — against the Chiefs (147.5), against the Bills at home (133.3) and at Buffalo (122.3). He also had passer ratings of 99.5 against Dallas and 98.6 against New England.

  62. naplesfan2010 says:

    Moore’s 17 touchdown passes with the Dolphins have gone to four different receivers — Fasano (6), Brandon Marshall (5), Davone Bess (3) and Charles Clay (3).

    • Of his 16 touchdown passes with Carolina, six went to wide receiver Steve Smith, now a member of the Baltimore Ravens.

  63. naplesfan2010 says:

    With that last stat list, it can be postulated that he likes the TE/slot type receiver in the red zone.

    So watch for him to throw 2 TDs to Sims and one to Landry.

    I’m telling you guys for yearsbut nobody ever looks at the NFL schedule. Patriots get 9 home games every year and when it is their turn to go to London they make the Dolphins go instead

    • naplesfan2010 says:

      Nobody gets more home games than anybody else. The teams that agree to go to London and give up a home game get $1M and reimbursed for the smaller season ticket package.

  67. finfanrob says:

    howie

    i said last night how shocking it was the cheats having another home game and a nationally televised to boot but i was just told everyone plays the same schedule

  68. The Flying Pig says:

    Why are you guys saying the Cheats get 9 home games?

    what am I missing?

  69. naplesfan2010 says:

    Do we want DeMarcus Walker FSU for a first round DE? 6’2 273 and very fast off the edge

    • The Flying Pig says:

      I’m thinking he might be a 2bd rounder

      but its tough to day in December

      Yes, I would like DeMarcus Walker
      I think he is a heck of a player on a somewhat depleted 2016 FSU squad

      reminds me a little of Wake

  70. finfanrob says:

    naplesfan2010 says:

    Do we want DeMarcus Walker FSU for a first round DE? 6’2 273 and very fast off the edge

    i dont know about him but would love to see FSU’s D. Cook on the fins. If Gase is the offensive coach we hear about would love to see what he can do with a kid like that.

  72. finfanrob says:

    piggy,

    two things. one, were they depleted of just fisher trying to show he is a qb guru and not using the team right? and second, if they are going to pick a fsu d back i would love to see them pick Derwin James in 2018

    • The Flying Pig says:

      I tend to think FSU had less talent in 2016 than the prior 2 years

      They were pretty loaded the last few years

      This year there’s a handful of early round prospects like Cook and Walker

      2018 is way to far ahead for me to even look at
      Derwin James looks good everytime I see him

      I really want to work on the front 7 on D as a prieooty

  73. naplesfan2010 says:

    Walter football has us picking Zach Cunningham ILB Vandy 6’4 230 in round 1 as a 3 down LB, good at cover and a reliable tackler. Then follows that up with Taco Charlton 6’6 272 DE Michigan who is very quick off the edge.

    I WOULD LOVE THIS DRAFT.

  74. finfanrob says:

    naples,

    is all the talk about drafting ajabieala. that he had bad knees. i admit maybe cause i am any florida team homer but i think Cook is special. he maybe just another draft bust. but i sure would like to see him in a fins uniform.

    • naplesfan2010 says:

      I am a huge FSU fan, and I think Dalvin Cook is a very scary RB, but i just think we have such glaring needs on defense that we should draft there this year.

  75. wyoming85 says:

    Maybe Gase can out “cheat” Bellicheat?

    Alex MarvezVerified account
    ‏@alexmarvez
    .@BruceArians tells @SiriusXMNFL that @MiamiDolphins illegally shouted out snap signal that led to botched XP in @AZCardinals loss.

    • naplesfan2010 says:

      Arians is having a nervous breakdown. I mean this seriously and it’s sad. Like what happened to Kubiak when Houston self-destructed that year.

      • naplesfan2010 says:

        Arians was ranting about the rain coming down harder when he had the ball on offense. That is wildly irrational.

    Dion’s done I see. I was quietly holding out hope for him.
    I assume at this point he’ll be in camp next year I don’t think there’s much risk to see what he can do.
    I hope he has to battle a highly drafted DE for a spot.

      Never did a thing. What a total waste. He may have been injured at some point but I feel most of his issues were of his own doing. Idiot.

  80. finfanrob says:

    piggy,

    i so get that, i think the fins defense sucks. they proved it again last week. great teams their D can win games, the fins can barely hold on to games. so i agree every fa and draft pick needs to be on the defense. but with that said if Cook is there when they pick i dont see how the pass up on them. besides how many on here have blamed the offense for the defense being to bad

    • herdfan says:

      If he somehow came out of this and was a beast, I’d be right there with you. I just don’t see it happening at this point and it pisses me off that we drafted him, much less at 3.

      • son of a son of a shula says:

        There were so many good players we could have had at 12 that year plus the second we gave up.
        Jonelle Martin and Dion Jordan are monumental busts. Most GMs don’t get 2 that are so horrible.

    According to UK’s chart above piggy has not quite evolved all the way. I believe I met the second from the end at the Fest. Ha! JBB piggy

    Rock,

    That is cold man..LOL…almost as cold as the wind chill here today (-13)

  92. Mike E. says:

    Bookman

    There might easily be about the same amount of Dolphins fans as Jets fans. None of my friends who have season tickets want to go, partly because it’s a Saturday night, and partly because they SUCK!!!!!!!

    • stangerx says:

      Mike E — maybe you and the Pig and whoever else up there should consider going late. Tix on stubhub are going as low as $13 in the nosebleeds and a bit over a hundred sets you up pretty darn nice on field level. It’s a firesale.

  93. stangerx says:

    The Jets have something to play for on Saturday.
    Right now they have the sixth draft pick.
    With a loss they could be #5.
    With a win they could fall as far down as #10.

  94. stangerx says:

    Hyde with the most likely way we can get in the playoffs. Leaves us all as Pats fans against next weekend.
    —————-

    Forget all the tie-breakers and possible variables. Here’s the clear path for the Dolphins to make the playoffs:

    1. Win two of their three final games.
    2. Denver loses two of its final three (home against New England, at Kansas City and home against Oakland).

    That’s it. If those two things happen, they’ll earn the sixth and final playoff berth no matter what else occurs. Well, almost anything else.

    If the Dolphins get to 10 wins, the only way Baltimore (with a tie-breaker against Dolphins) gets to 10 wins is by beating Pittsburgh. That gets Pittsburgh 10 wins. Baltimore then wins the AFC North and the Dolphins have the tie-breaker over Pittsburgh (having beaten the Steelers) for the final wild-card berth.

    I don’t think so. Saturday night is a rough time. Plus, my kids are in from college, and we have a tradition of doing Saturday might dinner together. If you’re thinking eat dinner t the stadium, my kids couldn’t care less about going to a football game. 😦

  99. The Flying Pig says:

    No way will I go to that game
    Im gonna pregame at slatterys early Saturday before those guys go to the game

    My daughter will be at the game so fear not we will be represented.

    Her boyfriend has size 15 shoes just to give you an idea of his size so I don’t anticipate anyone messing with her.

    I saw the question of who we play next year and I found this

    HOME: Buffalo, New England, NY Jets, Denver, Oakland, New Orleans (London), Tampa Bay, AFC South*
    AWAY: Buffalo, New England, NY Jets, Kansas City, San Diego, Atlanta, Carolina, AFC North*

    So we only have one west coast trip next year (and one london trip) the rest are relatively short trips.

  126. Rockphin says:

    We won’t know the AFC north or AFC south team we play until the season is done, but it will probably be the Ravens or Steelers as the away game.

    ——————————–

    Ha! Pepe’s is about the best IMO – DiFara’s out in Brooklyn was awesome too, but haven’t been there in a while so don’t know how its holding up.

    As for Toba and FF – yeah I’m shocked I won that round and that I’m still in it. And in the end he was done in by my kicker (and that’s with Brees having a truly putrid game – didn’t think I’d recover from that).

    • stangerx says:

      Seems even in fantasy most games are decided by foot on leather. Good luck against the magic hand. I’m up against the most Thundering Herd. Have a feeling we might meet up in the consolation “finals.”

  130. stangerx says:

    McShay has his first mock out. And for us………like hearing the draft is deep up top at TE.
    ———————————-
    O.J. Howard, tight end, Alabama

    Lucky for teams like the Dolphins who have a need at the position, this is a loaded class with tight ends at the top. Howard, Michigan’s Jake Butt and Virginia Tech’s Bucky Hodges all look like top-40 picks. Howard’s size-speed combination gives him a lot of upside, but his production has been streaky in Alabama’s run-heavy offense.

  131. Rockphin says:

    ROFLMAO!!

    I could never do it again if I tried 1000 times in a row!

    I was outside my office smoking a cigarette and there are these shit ass squirrels that hang out in the oak trees (yes I hate squirrels probably more than Tim!) So the squirrels are sitting up in the tree throwing acorns and twigs at me. At first I thought they were just knocking them loose by scampering around, but then I saw them actually pulling the acorns off the branches and throwing them at me. So I bent over, picked up an acorn and threw it back at them and hit one right in the face first shot! HA!!

    It was like what the hell? and ran through the tree and jumped to the tree on the other side of the drive.

  132. D says:

    Bucky Hodges is mentioned a lot, probably more than he deserves. He is solid but there are much better TEs in this draft. Possibly the best one is one of the more under valued one. Jeremy Sprinkle imo is the best all around TE in the draft. Howard is the best pure receiver. Jake butt probably the best redzone TE. Another guy I’d look at as a late round guy is Gerald Everett from South Alabama. Definitely under the radar more versatile Clay type guy.

  133. D says:

    I don’t see any of the TEs as first rounders though. Bunch of early second rounders through third round. That’s where the cluster of talent exists. I don’t think any stand out enough to separate themselves fro. The pack

Which would have had me with a bye ( i think). Which is also even ironically funnier because there were only two answers to my query. One of which was from Mr Absentee … so i left all 8 advancing .. and got bounced in round 1 , after i thought i had won until i realized he still had Tucker playing and was 2 pts behind me. Tucker put him over. Alas

    Someday you have to try Totonno’s. Admittedly, I haven’t been there in over 20 years, but my memory of it still burns brightly. It was fantastic, one of the original brick oven pizzerias, and it was always rated very highly. The old man who made the pizza and owned it only made a certain amount of pies per day, and he didn’t care if there was a line out the door, he would say “That’s a it, a no more!” He would just close down, and he could do that, because it was so good.

    Walter football has us picking Zach Cunningham ILB Vandy 6’4 230 in round 1 as a 3 down LB, good at cover and a reliable tackler. Then follows that up with Taco Charlton 6’6 272 DE Michigan who is very quick off the edge.
    ___________________________________________
    Haven’t seen that one. When I go on their site now it’s the same it was a couple days ago with us picking a cb but they changed the pick to Adoree Jackson from Sydney Jones. Rd 2 they still have us picking Evan Engram. I like Engram but he’s not a blocking TE and I’d pass on him just because of that.
    However, I would love it if our draft ended up as you stated. Both players would benefit the team greatly. Cunningham would probably be a day one starter and Charlton could be worked in at DE with Wake and Branch. FYI, I’m hoping we keep Branch and Jason Jones as well.
