Isaiah Ford #15, RD 7, Pick#237


With the 237th pick in the 7th RD, the Dolphins selected their 2nd player on the offensive side of the ball, and a pretty good one too, in WR Isaiah Ford.  The 6’2″ 195 Ford was a very productive receiver at Virginia Tech.  a 3 YR starter, Ford twice went over 1000 yards receiving, and over his 3 YR career at VaTech, he caught 24 TD’s, his best being his Sophomore year, where he had 75 receptions, 1166 yards and 11 TD’s.

Ford brings to the Dolphins the skills to compete for those 50/50 balls, and the size to do it.  He is more of a possession receiver than a deep ball threat, running a 4.61 40 at the combine.  He does run good routes, and has learned how to vary his speed and use short burst quickness to get open.


Isaiah Ford had somewhat of a disappointing mini camp, and finds himself kind of buried on a deep depth chart of WR’s, including Jarvis Landry, Devante Parker, Kenny Stills, Leonte Carroo, Rashawn Scott, and this year’s undrafted free agents Damore’ea Stringfellow, Drew Morgan, Malcolm Lewis and Francis Owusu as well as FA pickup Mitch Matthews.  Obviously, Ford has his work cut out for him, and being drafted won’t put him ahead of any of the guys he’s competing against, only strong performances will.


So that’s it for the 2017 draft class.  We focused on defense, taking 5 of 7 on D,  and improved the depth of our defense significantly, but one more good draft on defense could put us over the top.  On offense, we brought in an OG and a WR later in the draft, and Asiata has a shot at starting this season, despite being a 5th RD pick.  Overall I think we did well, and the team should be better with the help of our ’17 draft class.

GO DOLPHINS!  Zero in!

    There is going to be a lot of competition at WR for those 4-6 spots this year. A mix of all kinds of size, speed and skill sets.

    1. Leonte Carroo 6-0 210 – we know about him.
    2. Jakeem Grant 5-7 172 – we know he’s all about speed and PR.
    3. Rashawn Scott 6-2 204 – big guy with physical skills, durability issues.
    4. Isiah Ford 6-2 198 – more football player than workout numbers.
    5. Drew Morgan 6-0 193 – savvy overachiever who can also help in the return game.
    6. Malcolm Lewis 5-10 190 – don’t know a lot about him, anyone?
    7. Francis Owusu 6-3 210 – don’t know a lot about him, anyone?
    8. Damore’ea Stringfellow 6-2 219 – don’t know a lot about him, anyone?
    9. Mitch Mathews 6-6 215 – don’t know a lot about him, anyone?

    Should be fun watching how it all plays out.

    I put too much time into the last post before the turn to let this go silently into the page turn night.

    Might have just been Walker looking for offseason clicks with a softball Q to his fellow AFC East dudes, but here is what he asked:

    “Adam Gase is the second-youngest head coach in the NFL and he took advantage of a last-place schedule to win 10 games in 2016. Is Gase the long-term solution for the Dolphins or is he a one-year wonder?”

    Billls guy — “I watched some bad football from Joe Philbin’s teams, which made me more impressed with what Gase did last season.”

    Jets guy — “Not in the habit of anointing first-time coaches after a good year or two because I’ve seen it go the other way very quickly (Google the Jets’ past three coaches), but everything I’ve seen and heard about Gase indicates he’s more likely to succeed than fail.”

    Pats guy — Gase seems to be more “the long-term solution than a one-year wonder. It starts with building a winning culture and, from my view in New England, Gase has taken positive steps in doing so.”

    • Tim Knight says:

      I saw it but we don’t need outside opinions anymore. Gase has been impressive in many phases. First he had to learn his team, then had to climb out of an early hole, lead a nice winning streak to get us back in the playoff hunt, then finished the job with a lot of 2nd and 3rd stringers down the stretch including at QB. Not easy to do.

      • stangerx says:

        Still pretty nice that the outside guys following the other teams can’t bash Gase other than a “well some of our coaches that crashed did well in the first year too.”

        And had no doubt you saw it (was assuming actually)… are the most top guy on breaking info that comes to the board. Would be great if you decided to put out some up top page posts with all the stuff you see. Not one of us a better eye on such than you.

      • Tim Knight says:

        Thanks Stanger, very nice of you to say. 🙂

      • steveccnv says:

        Stranger just Google Miami Dolphins News and you’ll see most of the stories. Tim, MF13 and others dig a little deeper, but…

      • stangerx says:

        The digging deeper is why I love the guys. Every time I bring something up they already knew about it. And same goes for you too. Just impressed by all you guys…..

  3. Tim Knight says:

    Hey I know I’m a homer and always try to look at the bright side. But this is the best roster heading into a season that I can remember. Despite a 3rd DT and possibly another LG – M13. LOL

    OL – okay with upside, we do have talent here but depth could be an issue.
    TE – it’s all about Thomas being a playmaker.
    WR – very good and deep.
    QB – very good with Tannehill and Moore.
    RB – very good lead by Ajayi.

    DL – plenty of top level players with new additions.
    LB – much improved with new additions both vets and youth.
    CB – lots of competition and potential talent mainly young guys.
    S – plenty of talent here too, mostly vets.

    STs – K, P, LS etc. solid at worst – explosiveness in the return game.

    We really don’t have major voids. Durability is key.

    Stanger, I get 95% of my Fins news here so when you post those stories they’re new to me so thanks.
    All I read was:
    Buffalo – we’re scared of the Dolphins
    Stej – we’re scared of the Dolphins
    Patsies – we’re scared of the Dolphins

    …and rightfully so

    • stangerx says:

      De nada Son — I don’t contribute like you admins do….just put out what find interesting at times and reader digest it. Figure especially in the off season, one-stop shop is a way to go. And don’t think the Pats fans are scared……but do think they hear hoof beats (or is that flipper splash) in the distance.

    Phelon, Have done butts (they come out really good), chickens, turkey, Loins, ribs and my favorite is giant beef brisket (getting pretty good at them). 12-14 lb briskets, I trim them myself. Smoking is a lot of fun. I start the briskets late at night so they’re ready for the next late afternoon.

    Any ideas how to cook full pig in underground box..First time doing this and son-in-law is the so called expert

    • stangerx says:

      Wasn’t the man calling the shots but was a grunt helping get a couple pigs pit cooked back in college. Which mainly meant bringing embers over from the party bondfire. Long, low temp and slow with for us beer and oil poured in every so often was the theme. How does the box work?

      • jetsssuck says:

        all I know is I got the shovels for the young people to dig,I’m to old for that.

      • stangerx says:

        Sounds like you got some good food coming down the road and a talking too from our own Flying Pig as well. And hell yeah you shouldn’t be digging…..but also not a time to learn about how it should be on the fly. Much better to make comments later if things go bad, but hard to think that will happen. Lots of room for error on the long cook…and man does it turn out good. 🙂

  11. stangerx says:

    Had an actual Phins though last night. Was surprised we did the re-do on Reshad before Landry, especially since Jones was coming off injury. But it might have had more to do with contracts than showing who they value more. Reshad already had a high cap hit in place while Jarvis is on a cheap rookie contract. That means giving Jarvis his 2nd contract will come with a cap hit. So by holding off on him the Phins kept space and their options open.

    • jetsssuck says:

      heard Jim Berry say that both sides are working hard to finish his contract before training camp.

    • steveccnv says:

      One had nothing to do with the other Stanger.

      People think that when you give a player an extension you’re doing it to save money down the road, and sometimes that’s the case, usually for QBs. Lets take RTs contract, he had a $4M 2015 number from his rookie year, then was given the 5th year option at $16M, so the team was on the hook for $20 before the extension. They gave him a $97M 6 yr deal, dividing it out it’s just over $16M per year, it looks good right? But what they really did was gave him a 4 year extension for $77M, because they already owed him $20M, so it was really a $19M a year extension, which the team could’ve gotten the same 4 yr $97M deal starting in 2017. But if RT blew up in one of those years the numbers would’ve been higher starting in 2017.

      For Reshad he was going to make just over $7M for 2017, his new deal was for 5 years for $60M, you think $12M per year, but it’s really $53M for 4 years, so a little over $13M. For Landry, being on his rookie deal with no 5th year option he’s making about $1M this year. As you can see with the RT and Reshad deals it’s not much of a difference, if we wait a year, (being that Landry, other than TDs, is basically at his ceiling) to give him a new contract we really aren’t going to save any money, it just makes sure we retain him,

      The team really wants to resign him now though, if they can to keep him happy, as he’s been a good camper, but they really don’t have to, as they can use the franchise tag for 2 years to keep him.

      • stangerx says:

        I’m right with you on what happens on contract re-signs versus the cap and how they can be arranged is you will. But Reshad’s cap hit next year is now under $4 mil and it was more before that. Landry’s is currently under one mil. Just don’t see a way we could get him that 2nd contract without taking a cap hit.

        And maybe that was not the reason why they went one or the other…..but it is still there. So was just thinking they might have been thinking lets get Landry done later just in case we want to sign someone for next season. And even if I am wrong, that dynamic is still there, but only for possible moves. Long-term prices might be the big reason anyhow.

  12. Tim Knight says:

    I read something where Landry and his agent said they won’t do a contract during the season so if it’s going to get done before next season it has to be done during TC/PS.

    • steveccnv says:

      Yes, that’s why they’re working hard to get it done now. The cap space doesn’t really matter either, because like Reshad’s deal they’ll have a small first year cap figure anyways, but the cap figure for this year doesn’t really matter, because we have space. It makes no difference, if we give him a $10M hit this year vs a $3M hit, because the $7M saved off of the cap would just roll over anyways and paid in future years.

  13. Tim Knight says:

    Some guys have size and skill but if you don’t have that work ethic, it doesn’t matter.

    TALLLLL WR who scored 20 TDs in his last two years at Brigham Young. Unfortunately that makes him a 26 yr old.

    Didn’t he make “the catch of the year” when he had his two hands on the ball behind the DB so he had the guy in a bear hug and still caught the pass?

    6. Malcolm Lewis 5-10 190 – don’t know a lot about him, anyone?
    Quick bio

    Lewis, a Miramar, Florida native, was a four-star recruit whose UM career was derailed by injuries. A gruesome lower leg injury in 2012 — UM fans remember coach Al Golden running onto the field to comfort Lewis as he lay prone — hampered his speed and agility, and Lewis ended his career with 649 yards and three touchdowns on 62 catches in 50 games (15 starts). His best performance at UM may have been his pro day, when he made several outstanding, sure-handed catches in field drills, performed 14 reps on the bench and ran a hand-timed 4.44-second 40-yard dash.

    Scouting report

    Lewis projects as a depth option and special-teamer as a pro. He described himself as “physical, willing to block, willing to be on all special teams, great catcher, great body control.”

    Scout’s take

    “He shows up every day and goes to work. I have a high level of respect for that.” — Miami coach Mark Richt

    8. Damore’ea Stringfellow 6-2 219 – don’t know a lot about him, anyone?
    He was rated the 4th best high school recruit in California, but his college career was marred by an ugly incident which caused him to transfer to Ole Miss.

  20. naplesfan2010 says:

    In his freshman year, 2013, Stringfellow played in 12 of 13 games and started the last three games of the season. He had 20 catches for 259 yards and a touchdown on the year. He had a breakout game in first collegiate start at UCLA, finishing with eight catches for 147 yards and a touchdown. He had four receptions for 47 yards in the Apple Cup win over Washington State.

    Stringfellow was arrested for assault in February 2014. Stringfellow and then teammate Cyler Miles attacked Seattle Seahawks fans following the Super Bowl victory over the Denver Broncos. After getting into a fight with a male University of Washington student, Stringfellow then began to intimidate and have an altercation with a female student who had been taking pictures of the incident. “During the struggle, “’Stringfellow hit (her) in the head. (She) fainted, though it appears she was not out for a long period of time (it is unclear whether she passed out from the blow or due to the exertion and the fact she was ill).’” Later in the night, Stringfellow and Miles again approached another man, asked if he was a Seahawks fan and when he replied yes proceeded to assault the fan. When the fan tried to run away, Stringfellow and Miles chased him down and continued to beat him.

    Stringfellow was dismissed from University of Washington shortly later. He sat out a year.

    … he left college early after he had two good not great years at Ole Miss.

    Take a 1 gallon zip lock and fold / roll a wrack of baby back ribs into it. Pour a 1 liter bottle of cola into the zip lock. Add one teaspoon of black pepper, 4-5 tablespoons of tabasco, 1/2 teaspoon of garlic & 1 teaspoon of paprika & 2 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce. Place zip lock in deep bowl or pot (with other racks in their own bags.) put in refrigerator over night. 12-16 hours.

    Take the ribs out of the marinade, blot dry, and cook slow over a charcoal fire. (away from the flames for the first long while. Once the meat shows a little caramelizing baste with your favorite BBQ sauce. mmmmmmmmmmmmm

    • steveccnv says:

      Blah, blah, blah… We’ve heard all this shit before, this is better that is better…but the one thing that must get better is Tannehill’s ability to make something happen.

      I watched the ’85 Bears vs Dolphins game in it’s entirety this weekend, and at the half with a large lead I was thinking we sucked on D, the OL was barely able to hold off the rush, couldn’t open much of a hole except on trap plays at the goal line… in spite of all of that we were able to dominate the game, because Marino mostly under heavy pressure was able to make plays when needed. Sure we got a lucky TD on a deflection to Clayton and a quick TD after a blocked punt, but if that games was played again the next week the Bears may have won by 40.

      The point is, until RT finds IT, we aren’t going to progress. Maybe he already has, as he mentioned in the article, and it has been said by Gase too this offseason, but he needs to do it consistently.

      • Tim Knight says:

        We kept two backs in the backfield much of that game – Nathan and Bennett.

      • stangerx says:

        Man that makes me jealous. Maybe Tanny finds that kinda mojo or maybe not….but that was one special game.

    just upgraded my tv and when I was watching it, the voice from the actor person was not understandable. I thought it was from my stroke, so I did some research and come to find out most big screens have this problem and you have to buy a thing called a sound bar. I spend all day calling these different suppliers of sound bars explaining my new disappointment and they tell me I have to upgrade my TV. I tell them I did. I proceed to tell them of my big upgrade from 19 inch to 25 inch with color and he tells me I need bigger TV. I tell the kid any closer to the tv and I would be kissing the TV and my recliner won’t open because my lazyboy is set up within 2 ft of tv.

    While taking my morning dump and doing my most critical thinking and reasoning for the day I think I found out why old girlfriends kept saying to me, no big deal all the time. Maybe it’s not big enough.

    TALLLLL WR who scored 20 TDs in his last two years at Brigham Young. Unfortunately that makes him a 26 yr old
    I saw him play in the Las Vegas Bowl, he looked great, but not sure how his skills translate to the NFL.

    I’m getting to the point where I just want to see the best 6 WRs make it, yes 6, we have too much talent there to keep less.

  27. son of a son of a shula says:

    And we have Suh!

  28. Tim Knight says:

    Tannehill has the talent and work ethic to be successful. Consistency is the key for him. He’s like a pitcher that has great stuff but sometimes doesn’t have command of all of it. He needs to put it all together and he can play at a high level. We’ve seen it.

    • naplesfan2010 says:

      For years I have said if everybody on the team played as well and as tough as Tannehill that we would be a playoff team.

      Well … I was right.

      For the first time, I can NOT say, “Ryan is not the problem.”
      Not that he IS… jus’ sayin’ … he has help now.
      Now I can say QB, WR, DE, OT, RB, S, STs, and Suh are NOT the problem.
      By the end of the season, i hope to be able to add TE and CB and starting LBs to that list.

  29. naplesfan2010 says:

    I will be interested to see Praise Martin in a pre-season game to see if we have something good there. His highlights look awesome, but he’s a little small.
    We also have a pair of 6’6 270 DEs — Malvaux and Miley. They probably can’t make the 53 but would that not be a cool pair of bookends to have? … if they can actually play.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Praise Martin-Oguike was very productive in college but his teammate Hassan Reddick became the blue chipper and he went undrafted. At 6-1 255 he’s likely a LB/hybrid edge rusher like Reddick who was a DE but even smaller.

      Do you know why he went undrafted?

  30. naplesfan2010 says:

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The headlines that blare when a famous athlete is accused of a heinous crime make Praise Martin-Oguike cautiously recoil.

    The soft-spoken defensive end from Temple lost two years of his college football career after being charged in May 2012 with raping a female student. Not until 18 months had passed, after he had been kicked off the team and out of school, did prosecutors find evidence supporting Martin-Oguike’s claims of innocence. With jury selection for his trial in progress, the charges were dropped.

    “It was like winning the lottery, honestly,” Martin-Oguike said.

    Martin-Oguike returned to Temple last year and had a breakout season with 7.5 sacks, five forced fumbles and two blocked field goals, helping the Owls go from two wins to six.

    But having been in the news for all the wrong reasons not so long ago, Martin-Oguike said he knows the truth often takes time to emerge from behind the shocking headline.

    “People are quick to judge, quick to jump to conclusions,” he said.

    Nigerian-born, Martin-Oguike moved to New Jersey with his parents when he was 10. He grew from defensive back to linebacker-sized by his junior year at Woodbridge High School, catching the eye of college recruiters. As a freshman at Temple, he contributed on special teams.

    Then his life was put on hold and he faced the possibility of going to prison for rape.

    “The main thing was just confusion,” Martin-Oguike said. “One day everything is going well and then the next this whole chaos. I was struggling to understand what was going on and what I was going to do.”

    Martin-Oguike tried to find comfort in music (he plays drums and taught himself piano and guitar) and art (he draws and paints). He worked out. Mostly, the son of a pastor and a poet prayed. It was hard to hold it together.

    “I was obviously angry,” Martin-Oguike said. “I tried my best not to get angry. It was a struggle. It was always about being positive. I was depressed for a while seeing how everything was going down.”

    Martin-Oguike said his attorney James Funt pushed for prosecutors to review the accuser’s cellphone. When they finally did, text messages to friends indicated she was not truthful about being raped and the case was dismissed.

    “It was amazing after everything that happened just to know I had a second chance at life,” Martin-Oguike said.

    Other schools recruited Martin-Oguike after he was cleared. He said some people told him Temple had treated him poorly and that he should leave.

    He did not see it that way. Temple special teams coach Ed Foley believed in Martin-Oguike from the start and stayed in touch with him throughout the ordeal. Martin-Oguike still had to go through a student-conduct process to re-enroll at Temple. Foley guided him through it.

    “After everything that happened I knew I could trust coach (Matt) Rhule and trust this coaching staff,” Martin-Oguike said. “And I’m already familiar with the school instead of going to a whole new place and start all over. I just knew I could trust them with my career.”

    Earlier this year, the NCAA granted Martin-Oguike’s an extra season of eligibility so he can also return in 2016.

    Rhule was happy to have him back but really didn’t know what he had. In the spring of 2014, Martin-Oguike was moved from linebacker to defensive end as Rhule looked for ways to improve a weak defense.

    “All of sudden it was like, ‘Oh my goodness,'” said Rhule, the former Temple assistant entering his third season as Owls head coach. “He was just unblockable.”

    With Martin-Oguike leading the way, Temple’s turnaround 2014 season was fueled by a defense that ranked 11th in the nation in yards allowed per play (4.75) and turnovers forced (30). Even more is expected this season. Martin-Oguike is one of 10 returning defensive players with starting experience, including star linebacker Tyler Matakevich and defensive tackle Matt Ioannidis.

    Martin-Oguike appreciates all he has more than ever before. Matakevich said Martin-Oguike’s positive attitude helps get teammates through the grind.

    “A lot of kids are down and he had a big smile on his face. I’m like, ‘Why you got a smile on your face?’ He’s like, ‘Bro, this is awesome,'” Matakevich said. “You never know when things can be taken away from you.”

    Despite what he has been through, Martin-Oguike said he has not become distrusting or cynical — just more careful.

    “I choose my friends more wisely,” he said. “Try to be more cautious with everything around me.”

        Supposedly, saved instagrams or snapchats or whatever showed pix of her ummm enjoying herself with “this stud” etc. and then bragging to her friends about getting it on with the football star and how he was such a hunk and stuff … then somebody off-handedly suggested A) she was a slut and B) she could make money off this … soooo …
        Do NOT quote me on this part as I no longer have the source material to cite.

    Also he has muscled up since i last checked and is now 6’2″ 250.
    That’s MY size! (minus the muscle part LOL)
    His college coach called him “unblockable.”
    His work helped make Haaasssan Reddick look so good.

    jetsssuck — hope you work out the glitches on your new TV……..but how did the Pig turn out? No fair putting out a teaser on that without a report back. 🙂

    • jetsssuck says:

      smoke is still coming out of ground for 2 days tomorrow they pull it out.3 days cooking is beyond me but they say it’s good.We will see.

      • stangerx says:

        Wow that is real slow. Even the Hawaiins only do like overnight. Maybe it has something to do with the box.

  33. steveccnv says:

    In the 8 games after Turner and Thomas were cut, RTs passer rating was over 100 and he threw only 5 ints. Maybe the game really has slowed down for him.

  34. steveccnv says: some lunatic wrote a 25 page piece on Tannehill, comparing him to his generational And, then the best in the NFL. One tho g he mentions a little bit, but then proceeds to ignore is the illegal contact rule change, then the enforcement if it change.

    • steveccnv says:

      Well see this year, if RT really is as good as this guy says he is. There’s really no reason to believe he won’t be that food, as long as he has a little time.

    • mf13ss says:

      LOL, that’s the 3rd time this story has been posted here. Rockphin, then me, now you! 😆

      VERY good read, though. I suppose it’s worth posting it 3 times! 😉

  35. mf13ss says:

    Jay Ajayi = Ricky Williams-esque
    Kenyan Drake = Lamar Miller-esque
    Damien Williams = Ronnie Brown-esque

    If they can be all they can be, this might not be too far off. And if our O-Line is truly fixed, look out.

    • mf13ss says:

      Yes, I DO see some Ronnie Brown in Damien Williams. LOVED that TD run @ 0:18 in!!!


      NSFW (if you’re unfortunately at work today): 2Pac feat George Clinton “Can’t See Me” (EXPLICIT) appropriately plays in the background.

  36. steveccnv says:

    I had both Damien and Ajayi written off last year in camp, both were dogs, with little upside it seemed, then something happened to both about the same time. Now they’re killing it, with the physical play we haven’t seen since Clay left, sans Landry.

    • steveccnv says:

      With 3 O players determined to get it done, we should see a bright future. These guys all have the heart of a lion/champion.

  38. Rockphin says:

    Yeah Steve, Damian showed some of that Landry spunk on quite a few plays, just like Ajayi. They refuse to go down on the first hit, or even the second. Williams had 5 TD’s last year because he is a VERY good receiver out of the back field. I am glad he signed his tender and hope he gets resigned.

    • Tim Knight says:

      6 TDs, 3 rush/3 rec. 🙂

    • steveccnv says:

      Landry had the play against the Rams where he refused to go down and the entire O pushed him into the end zone, Damien had a TD run where he refused to go down and scored, Ajayi does it every play like Landry.

      • Tim Knight says:

        Add a faster new and improved Parker and things could really start to take off.

      • steveccnv says:

        If Parker had been healthy he catches that ball in NE week 2 with the game in the closing seconds.

  39. steveccnv says:

    Remember Stabby running out of bounds when he could’ve gone for 6, or Ginn looking for the sidelines as soon as he’s catch the ball, or Hartline and Bess getting into the submissive position after a catch? Well those days are FN gone😀

    Agreed. He missed the first game if I remember correctly. He gave it a go in week 2 but was not 100% basically most of the season.

  41. Rockphin says:

    Part of what Parker had to improve at besides his route running and learning how to take care of his body was the other part of what makes a great team. Blocking for the other player. When the WR’s, RB’s & TE’s all block for each other down field and do it well you get so much more out of every play. I read a piece about all the WRs buying into this

    • Tim Knight says:

      No block no rock is their motto.

      • steveccnv says:

        I like it, because I hate selfish players. On an Ajayi run last year from our 1 you can see Landry and I believe Stills getting downfield to block, and just missed getting out far enough to have it go for 6.

      • steveccnv says:

        But i dont need Parker blocking that much, i need him to be the go to #1 WR.

  42. Tim Knight says:

    Remember Mike Wallace giving up on a play while defenders were bashing Lamar Miller I think. In comes Landry from the other side of the field doing what he could do. That was very telling about both players.

    If it is the difference between a fist down and 6, fuck yeah I need him to block, for Landry, for Stills, for Ajayi, for Tannehill & Williams & Carroo & Fasano & Drake & Thomas & Marqueis, & Morgan & Scott.

    • steveccnv says:

      Of course, but what in saying is, first things first. Lets get him up to being #1 WR, before worrying about his blocking.

      • Tim Knight says:

        Parker has impressed his coaches and teammates all offseason so he knows the deal and what’s expected of him. He has the ability to become our A.J. Green.

  44. Tim Knight says:

    Stills and Parker on the outside as vertical threats, Landry and Thomas on the inside much of the time and Ajayi in the backfield. Farewell and adieu to you…

  45. steveccnv says:

    Why did the cheats win the SB last year? Because when they got behind the heart of a champion came pouring out, and Atlanta couldnt match it in the end.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Horrible coaching decisions by the Falcons. The game was over after Jones’ catch. Run the ball, eat more clock and kick the fucking FG. No let’s keep passing, take sacks and penalties and fuck the whole thing up. It was mind boggling.

    NEW BLOG UP! Sorry, been very busy celebrating graduations and the like. Enjoy the holiday!
