Dolphins bolster QB position

dolphins-football-21678-jpg.

With Ryan Tannehill very likely out for the season, the Miami Dolphins acted quickly to make sure they were competitive in 2017.  Some of the names on the list of candidates were of horror movie stuff.  Kyle Orton?  Tim Tebow?  I’m not going to hide my preference, we all know I favored Kaepernick, based only on a pure talent standpoint, and IMO, his potential in Adam Gase’s offense.  I do however, completely understand, and endorse the choice of Jay Cutler.  Gase and Cutler have a synergy.  They can sound off to each other, listen to each other, take criticism from one another, and do it in a manner where both still like and respect one another.  That, in and of itself is worth a lot.

As it has been well documented and discussed over and over, Jay Cutler had his best season with Adam Gase, and there’s reason to believe with the talent we have in our offense here in Miami, that Cutler could easily surpass the numbers he put up in Chicago in 2015.  Jarvis Landry, Devante Parker, Kenny Stills, Jay Ajayi, Julius Thomas, Leonte Carroo, Kenyan Drake, Cutler has plenty of nice weapons to exceed what he did in 2015.

I guess the big question is, does Jay Cutler start?  I think that’s the plan, unless there are any setbacks for Jay Cutler.  I like Matt Moore, and he’s definitely a capable QB.  On the other hand, he’s a BACKUP QB, not a starter.  He’s excellent at spending time on the sidelines, and then answering the call to come in and get the job done.  Could Jay Cutler do that if he spent weeks on the sidelines, and Moore was injured, and be expected to step in and get the job done immediately?  I’m not so sure about that.  It takes a certain mindset to work that way, much like a relief pitcher in baseball.  Good relievers are worth their weight in gold in MLB, and good backup QB’s are much the same.  Moore has shown, and possibly even preferred to be the backup.  He had opportunities to go elsewhere to compete for a starting job, but there was a certain comfort staying here in Miami as the backup.  No shame in that, he’s one of the best backup QB’s in the NFL, whereas as a starter, he would be towards the bottom of the pack.

So what of Ryan Tannehill?  I think it’s clear as day that whether Ryan Tannehill gets the surgery now, or 6-8 weeks from now, he’s having surgery and is not really in consideration as our QB for this season.  In other words, he’s done for the season, it’s just a matter of when he has the surgery.  It’s a shame, because many of us felt this was the year Ryan would reach great heights, and realize his potential, but now it’s all on hold for 2018.  None of this is official of course, just official in MY mind.  Get the surgery, come back fully healthy with a stable knee, and kick ass in 2018.  Don’t linger too long wasting time, get it done, and make it happen next season.  Unfortunately for Ryan Tannehill, his first OUT in his contract comes up in 2018, meaning if the Dolphins terminate his contract, of the $17.5M of his contract, only $4.6M is dead money.  If you’re rooting for Ryan (Like I am), also know that number drops even further down in 2019 to a $2.3M dead cap hit, meaning if the Dolphins want to give Tannehill 1 more year to figure out if he could reach a higher level of playing, they can do that.  A great year by Jay Cutler could certainly complicate that picture, but I’ll take the complications!

    Phish, I agree it’s time to draft a young QB who has NFL caliber talent to develop. It doesn’t have to be 1st or even 2nd rd but it needs to be a guy with an NFL arm.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      I think the difference is Elliot’s GF says it happened

      Landry’s denies any assault occurred

      The NFL’s policy does leave a open door for even the smallest accusation to lead to a suspension though. Its not a very good policy

      • steveccnv says:

        Matthews was out of favor in Philly, so the Bills made a poor trade, but it makes up for the Alonso trade.

  12. stangerx says:

    Here’s at least a guy from “Buffalo Rumblings” take on it…..sounds like Bills decided to go re-build, or at least not worry about this season much.

    “With the dust settled, the Bills now have two first round picks, two second round picks, and three third round picks in the 2018 draft. They are better prepared than ever for a massive retooling of the roster in the Sean McDermott and Brandon Beane era.”

    • Tim Knight says:

      No doubt! And there is this little tidbit.

      Buffalo just traded Sammy Watkins. WTF. Strangely enough, former Dolphins executives run Buffalo & I’ve heard they want 14.

      • steveccnv says:

        The idiot cant even get a joke right. So if former Fins execs running the bills wanted #14, why did they just trade him?

      • Tim Knight says:

        I read it that he meant Landry. Probably didn’t realize Watkins also wears 14. LOL

  13. BailBondMike says:

    Has the team given a press release on McMillan yet or we still going by media sources?

  14. steveccnv says:

    Watkins was another Fins killer, glad to see him gone, Darby too.

  15. steveccnv says:

    We stocked up on big CBs, because of the large WRs in our division, Watkins, Stabby and Decker, and now theyre all gone.

  16. Mike E. says:

    Steve – I get that, but I think they just prefer bigger corners

  17. steveccnv says:

    Would you rather have Phillips be the player the coaches thought he’d be this year, and no one step up to take the backup role, or what we have now with Godchaux stepping up and Phillips somewhat status quo?

    • Mike E. says:

      How about both guys kicking ass, option C?

    • Tim Knight says:

      Worst case scenario is Phillips is who he is, a guy who can be disruptive but inconsistent, so he’s the 3rd DT, and Godchaux being a non-stop motor guy who is consistent is the starter. That’s not a bad scenario. Taylor has also been impressive so it looks like we have solid depth.

  19. The Flying Pig says:

    Have you guys seen Omar’s new Twitter rules

    WTF

    • Tim Knight says:

      He sometimes thinks he’s a legend in his own mind. LOL

    • steveccnv says:

      He’s been using them for years, he brings them out this time of year, because it’s when he has leverage, since he tweets with a non stop motor during practice about plays. It’s when he’s at his best, using his eyes and not his brain.

    • steveccnv says:

      These rules are the definition of conceited.

    • stangerx says:

      We all knew back in the day that Twitter was like crack for him…….let him set up his own little world where he decided what to show and not show. He couldn’t get away from the crew that made him fast enough once that was an option. Did come to the first Fest though.

  20. BailBondMike says:

    Fuck, QB of the “O” and now the QB of the “D”. WTF! At least we have more solid options at MLB. That dude from Canada seemed to be balling last night. Can’t wait to watch the replay of the game.

    We can lose half a dozen more guys for the season and still sweep the jests and the bills….lol

    Cocky Piggy!!!

  22. Randy says:

    I wouldn’t get too excited about who plays when or who starts just yet. There is a whole lot of time yet for things to settle out. Hopefully if nothing else we’re building better depth.

    • stangerx says:

      Think the depth was clear last night. Ours beat that of a team that was in the Bowl….even if might have more to do with them maxing out on their first team.

  23. Tim Knight says:

    Godchaux looks like he could be a Pouncey brother.

      He has better hips. lol

      • Tim Knight says:

        LOL, let’s hope it stays that way.

        It’s funny when we drafted him there were people who watched him at LSU saying he’s a steal in the 5th rd while the draftniks broke down all the typical pros and cons. Some guys are just football players and body type etc. is not the tell all.

    But, now, the GASE ERA enters its second season. It’s been a year marked, so far, by horrid luck. But, as we all know, things do and WILL change. We WILL find new stars from the rubble. Guys will get a chance who, without these injuries, might not have gotten a fair shot. Hopefully, Ajayi will be ready for game 1. Larsen may be back for game 9. GASE will bring in replacements from other teams’ final cuts. And I think Cutler, now secure in his role, likely will have a decent to really good season.
    ————–
    Are we Super Bowl contenders this year? Probably not. Given a change in our luck, could we be contenders NEXT SEASON?? –You betcha! Both Tanny and McMillian will come back with the eye of the tiger. Our O-Line figures to be better. Our over abundance of wide receivers could fuel a meaningful trade that brings us a quality starter at a position of need. Needless to say, I AM NOT THROWING IN THE TOWEL ON THIS TEAM NOR THIS FRANCHISE. All things are possible with Adam Gase and his coaching staff.

    Mid-August and if the MLB was one division the Dodgers would have a 10 game lead and on pace to win 114……..that’s historic stuff. In other notes the Pirates are 23.5 games behind and had to win 7-9 to finally get back to .500.

  44. BailBondMike says:

    Watched the reply this morning. Usual PS1. Like Fales over Doughty. That ball to Stringfellow was a strike. Like what I saw from some of these other LB’s brought in. Look forward to seeing more of the 1’s.

  45. mf13ss says:

    Asiata did look good in the clip above. I still think he’s custom-built to play RG, but I see no reason (yet) why he can’t be a very good LG in time.

    JMO, but Asiata would be ‘plug-n-play’ from day 1 at RG (the non-blind side) while Jermon Bushrod could probably make a nearly seamless transition to LG (his natural side where his muscle-memory resides). That would be my answer to Larsen going out for half the season. We’ll see what happens.

  46. mf13ss says:

    I’ve gotta say… we’ve done very well regarding (my mantra!) POSITIONAL FLEXIBILITY.

    While Larsen’s loss will hurt us, it won’t kill us being we have others who can flex to LG.
    While Raekwon’s loss will hurt us, it won’t kill us being we have others who can flex to MLB.

    But regarding the loss of Tannehill, we HAD to bring another QB in being we don’t trust Doughty to backup Moore… or maybe even just handing the reigns to Moore.

    But please… NO MORE INJURIES!!!

    • stangerx says:

      Injuries are the leveler but hard to avoid. Just luck of the draw mostly. Last time we made the playoffs was when Brady went down.

  47. stangerx says:

    Dan Graziano, ESPN Staff Writer

    Ryan Tannehill’s $17.975 million salary for this year is fully guaranteed. But only $5.525 million of his $17.475 million 2018 salary is guaranteed against injury. He has no guarantees left other than that, which means the Dolphins could move on from Tannehill after this year with very little financial commitment left.
    ————-
    Would argue against “very little”…..but still get why it is in there, and why Ryan is a much better sell next year after the surgery than without it.

    • mf13ss says:

      Correct… we’ve known for well over a year that 2018 could be Tannehill’s “escape hatch” with his mere $5.5M guaranteed. I took that into account the other night when I showed Son a best case scenario to land Kirk Cousins… and we both agree it’s not worth it, especially being we’d be unable to re-sign Landry.

      Best case scenario? Ask Tannehill to restructure next year to free-up some $$$. He’s getting PAID this year to rehab, least he can do is restructure next year for the sake of the team.

    from PFF:
    TOP 5 GRADES
    EDGE Terrence Fede, 85.5 overall grade

    T Eric Smith, 83.8 overall grade

    DI Nick Williams, 82.8 overall grade

    DI Lawrence Okoye, 82.7 overall grade

    LB Chase Allen, 82.7 overall grade

    PERFORMANCES OF NOTE:
    T Eric Smith, 83.8 overall grade
    It was a good day for the undrafted free agent out of Virginia, who played the second most snaps among all Dolphins offensive players (55 snaps). He allowed just one late QB hurry on 35 pass blocking snaps for a pass blocking efficiency of 97.5, tops of any tackle so far this preseason with at least 23 snaps in pass protection. He also finished with an impressive run blocking grade of 85.3.

    WR Francis Owusu, 80.9 overall grade
    It was impressive to see Owusu with such a high grade considering he only had two catches all game. But both catches were on throws over 20 yards in the air, which means Owusu had a perfect 100.0 percent catch rate on deep throws. Both catches were impressive back shoulder catches on third down, one of which went for a touchdown, which only added to Owusu’s impressive performance.

    EDGE Terrence Fede, 85.5 overall grade
    The former seventh-round draft pick played just 16 snaps but made his presence felt, generating a hit and a hurry on just six pass-rushes, for a pass rush productivity of 25.0. Fede also made two combined defensive stops, and finished the game with team-high overall grade of 85.5.

    DI Lawrence Okoye, 82.7 overall grade
    Okoye was disruptive in both the run and pass game, collecting two quarterback hurries, two tackles, and two solo stops on the night.

    • stangerx says:

      Shows how important PFF is these days, when they are working on first game preseason grades. But out of those five……Okoye is the one have my eye on.

    At 34 years old, there were some questions heading into this season whether or not Incognito could maintain the high level of play we’ve seen from him since coming to Buffalo. He did his best to answer them Thursday with a superb run-blocking performance in only 17 snaps, with an 85.7 run block grade, a game-high.

    • Tim Knight says:

      It still pisses me off that we had to move on from him due to bullygate but he was allowed to go to BUF and be productive. A whole lotta BS right there.

  51. Tim Knight says:

    Eric Smith was a pleasant surprise the other night. I like what Gase did in the first PS game. He looked to his bench and said go out and prove yourselves and some guys did. That will likely be the case again in PS game 2. I feel our core guys are going to get their main work in PS game 3 and that’s it. No core guys will play game 4. With teams being able to keep 90 throughout the PS you can now do that.

  52. mf13ss says:

    Tim,

    If you hadn’t already heard, Eric Smith was doing a good job of handling Charles Harris last week in camp. Methinks he could be a ‘darkhorse’ player for us; loving what I’m hearing about him.

      I meant major. We lost Ryan, Raekwon, Larsen for half a season and Ajayi is still in concussion protocol. We can’t keep taking too many hits like this. They were all starters when it happened. You don’t want to go to the bench this deep this early.

  56. olddolphan says:

    YOUNG STANGER: WE could NOT get the Fins game here in Tampa, so I missed out on the “thrill” of seeing Ross. However, a local businessman tells me Ross decided a couple of years ago to sell the Miami franchise to another NYC real estate mogul. The exact date of the sale has not yet been determined.
    ————-
    Speaking of selling a franchise, it now appears that the Marlins have finally been sold to a group that includes Derek Jeter and Michael Jordan. A three-quarters vote for approval by MLB owners is all that separates this deal from being finalized.

    • Tim Knight says:

      OD, just remember Ross is not a NYC guy through and through.
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stephen_M._Ross

    • stangerx says:

      OD — can’t keep you down man……Ross came off as real impressive. Did your inside guy know why Ross put all the money into the stadium and was the only one who voted against the Raiders move cause he though teams should stick with home town loyalty? Your guy might have been right at the time, but seems if he was Ross is “born again” on that now.

      And yeah Loria is still trying to sell the Marilins and Jeter still involved. Before it was him and Jeb Bush….now him and Air Jordan. We will see. Pretty sure the price went down though.

      • mf13ss says:

        Loria sold it to Jeter’s group yesterday, Stanger. It just now needs the owners’ approval… expected to be finalized by October.

      • stangerx says:

        Thanks M13….was just commenting on how this is not the first announcement of an agreement to sell. As they say in the real estate bus — “ain’t over till the check and the keys cross at the middle of the table.” Did note the amount was for $300 mil less than the one announced before though.

  57. stangerx says:

    Real nice by Hyde about how JT and Harris are working together (encourage the full read). Also interesting about last time Taylor tried the same with a former #3 overall pick.

    “I had to chase him down to try to work with him. I couldn’t get him to call me back. I finally just gave up on it.”

    • steveccnv says:

      Good article, and my favorite type of player in Harris. One that knows he can always get better and will work relentlessly to get where he wants to be, but unlike Taylor he’s got a lot of help on the DL, so he doesn’t have to do it all himself.

    • Brian in NY says:

      Interesting read. That’s what you want (expect?) to hear about your rookies, especially one drafted so high. I’ve never hear that story about Jordan though- no wonder he was a bust.

  58. naplesfan2010 says:

    Asiata opened his hole on every running play he had in that clip and stonewalled the rusher on every pass blocking job. He even helped out another OL after sealing his own guy off.

    Small sample, but stilll

  59. naplesfan2010 says:

    oh and hey now i can root for Sammy again. we only have to play him what every four years? he killed us with that double move.

  60. Tim Knight says:

    Harris has the talent and work ethic to become a beast. He was good off the edge against ATL. He’s still a bit raw but that’s gonna come.

    • steveccnv says:

      When you have 4 DEs that can play, you can keep them fresh, so they can go balls to the wall all game. Something we haven’t had in quite a while.

  61. Brian in NY says:

    Mike,
    Good article. I don’t think there is any chance Cutler is not our starter if he is healthy. He’s getting $10 million guaranteed, that alone makes him he starting QB. The Cutler situation is interesting, but I wonder what his mindset is regarding his future. He did retire recently, would a good year change his thinking on that? Only he knows that for sure. It would make me a bit nervous to count on someone who retired for the long term. I wonder if they try to renegotiate Tannehill’s this offseason to lower his number for the next few years and minimize their risk financially. We ‘ll soon find out.

    • ocalarob says:

      believe if they do resign Tannehill they will give him a signing bonus and spread it over the life of the contract thus making the early years very cap friendly.

      • ocalarob says:


        I Believe”

      • Brian in NY says:

        Correct. We need some salary cap relief for next season, and we need to protect against the possibility of Tannehill not becoming who we hope he can be. Suh’s needs to be redone as well.

    • jetsssuck says:

      Maybe Cutler will prolong his career because SFlorida has a heavy presence of Diabties research in the s.florida hospital district.

    What a disappointing morning. I was expecting a ice cream machine for the kids(lol) I bought on amazon Friday and the tracking said it would arrive by 8pm last night. I have been excited since I ordered it and have gotten the hundreds of recipes ready to make it. Most only have 4-5 ingredients so how hard can this be. Well, 7.30 pm came, it was getting real late and I couldn’t hold out any longer into the dark night. I woke up this morning like a kid on xmas morning hoping the ice cream maker was left on the porch. Nothing I looked everywhere even under my rocker. The hell with church this morning. I looked it up on amazon acct and they rescduled the delivery for Wednesday. Yesterday,,,the damn site said before 8pm. Amazon prime sucks. Now, I have to go to grocery store and buy 10-15 pints sizes of different ice cream flavors I have been dreaming about and eat them in parking lot before coming home.

  65. steveccnv says:

    Gase downplaying the McMillan injury said, he was only figured to play 30% of the D snaps anyways, so STs were a given. I think as the year went on he would’ve gotten a little more, but it’s not like we lost a Jones or Wake. Basically this injury doesn’t change much, but it still sucks.

    • stangerx says:

      He might have been edging towards the bright side on that, but never had any doubt that when we went to the nickle that it would be Alonso and Timmons, even if to my mind that still left open close to half the snaps for the young rook.

  66. steveccnv says:

    I think Hull was inserted into MLB to minimize change, but I expect Timmons in the middle and Hewitt outside, Riley based on size and how he looked on Thursday will also be given a shot. This team took adversity last year and laughed at it, no change this year. Gase does what he does.

    • stangerx says:

      And part of what he does is set up a lot of flexible play pieces so he is not set into one option. Think the draft showed that. He’d probably never admit, but guessing the coach he models himself on most is belichick.

      • naplesfan2010 says:

        as long as Gase stays on the sunny side of honesty, that is a great role model to emulate.

  67. stangerx says:

    Maybe we don’t have too many wideouts after all…..perhaps that is like how Gase feels about DBs (below from Jackson)..
    ————-
    “the Dolphins are now without five young receivers: Leonte Carroo (hamstring), Jordan Westerkamp (hamstring) and Francis Owusu (knee) are the latest to be sidelined, joining Rashawn Scott (foot) and Isaiah Ford (knee).”

    “Carroo had a hamstring strain; we’re trying to give him a day off and see how he recovers,” Gase said.”

    DI Olsen Pierre, 78.5 overall grade

    PERFORMANCES OF NOTE:
    T Ulrick John, 84.3 overall grade
    After latching on with Arizona early last season, John did not see the field until Week 12 for the Cardinals and the results were not pretty. In three games, he allowed three sacks, four hits and 12 hurries for an overall grade of 32.6. John was much improved on Saturday night though as he did not allow one pressure on his 31 snaps in pass protection, good for a pass protection grade of 86.3.

  71. naplesfan2010 says:

    My other son just called to say he got engaged last night. We’ve been expecting it for a couple years, so it’s a relief not a surprise. (I’m old school. I prefer marriage to long-term live-ins, especially if they’re going to have kids.)

    She’s very smart, also graduated from Georgia Tech in engineering, although a bit too much of a mommy’s girl / daddy’s girl type for my taste. She works at Braves games. She’s the camera director for crowd and fan shots and close-ups on anything not in the game itself.

    Now how’d she get a neat job like that? Well her daddy is in charge of electronics at the stadium.

    • steveccnv says:

      Is it a real job, meaning, can you make a living off of it?

      • naplesfan2010 says:

        Oh yes she gets paid … don’t know how much but every pro stadium has someone in the truck or booth calling shots of fans … you know, you’ve seen those, the pig face masks, the cute children, the foul balls, whatever.

      • steveccnv says:

        I know she gets paid, but does she only work there? Does it pay enough to live off of?

    • stangerx says:

      Congrats to both your son and sounds like you. Now you get into the wedding. Old school says her family pays, but that is shattered at this point.

      Just my experience — had two weddings. First was the real big one-minute for every person thing (that the two sets of parents paid for). When told my Dad was getting married again…..his 2nd response was “this one is on you.”

      Aside from the next wife being better…….we sent out invitations to everyone to join us on a three-day Carnival Cruise. Only twenty-some showed up. Liked it much better. The people that cared did enough to pay to be there and we had a lot of quality time. Think my whole cost on the wedding (other than our travel) was like two grand.

      • naplesfan2010 says:

        Thank you.
        Whew.
        I haven’t heard a date yet, so I hope it’s far enough into the future that i can get a job on weekends to pay for my part.

      • steveccnv says:

        Lol, that 20+ people went. When I was a kid my mom’s sister eloped, and she only told their mother, who in turn told my mother…well my mom, and my 2 siblings and I showed at the pool on the ship before sailing. My mom told her we were going on the cruise, she looked like she saw a ghost. Why others on your honeymoon?

      • stangerx says:

        LOL steve….sounds like your grandma wanted that to happen. And wasn’t my honeymoon. Was my wedding cruise….we all hung out for three days and a very nice official from the island we were docked at came in to make it official at one point.

    Trevor Reilly and Deon Lacey are pushing to make the roster at LB as well. Both will have to keep showing up on STs but they’ve looked good at LB too. Reilly gives us some length at 6-5 240 and Lacey shows some good quickness around the ball.

    DB 10

    Offense:
    OL 9
    TE 3
    QB 2

    STs:

    P 1
    LS 1

      I think you’ve nailed it.
      DL might be 5 and 5 this year instead of 6 and 4.
      Probably 6 CBs and 4 Safeties unless a safety is the nickel or the back-up for the nickel.
      depending also on how they want to handle TJ coming off suspension.

    • steveccnv says:

      Thats great JS, one racist group trying to oust another. Why don’t we disapprove of them all? This kind of crap just divides the country more. Whats the difference between the alt left and the alt right? All these protests should be temporarily banned.

      • jetsssuck says:

        If everyone was not so judgemental we wouldn’t have this problem.The groups that provoked these horrible actions threw bottled urine on the other groups, used tazers and were provoking the other group. What they did to the dead girl’s FB page 30 minutes after she was identified is disgusting. These people have no respect for other people dead or alive.

      • steveccnv says:

        I’m not questioning that what that group did was horrible. The problem is from both sides (far left and far right) and to back either side is wrong.

      • steveccnv says:

  81. stangerx says:

    Some of Joe Schad’s quick hits on what Gase had to say after practice.

    No Steve—-not taking sides is wrong. America was created by immigrants and to think one is more important than the other is down right racist. KKK, skinheads, Alt-right, white supremacists don’t belong in any society that values diversity and freedom. Diversity is what made
    America great.

    This country can solve any problem or create the impossible because we have so many different nationalities, who look at problems from different perspectives.

      • jetsssuck says:

        You lost me Buddy. Both sides? So you denounce the side that believes no one nationality is better than another? Moratorium has got me confused…These protests got permission with a city permit. The night before rally was not allowed and these people provoked innocent by standers by throwing urine into the crowd.

      • steveccnv says:

        I’m denouncing the group, not what they’re saying. Look you sent a link from some left wing racist group to put a halt to the far right group, I said both groups should be denounced. What makes one group better than the other? Why should we allow these protest?

    • jetsssuck says:

      You lost me buddy——–left wing racist group? Protesting is a fundamental (1st Amend)right of every US citizen but to provoke others is pushing this right, past the rights of others.

      • jetsssuck says:

    now, those dip shits (white supremacists) had their legal permit to exercise their first amendment right…….and yes, even dumb asses have a first amendment right to free speech….. if you disagree with their opinions or rhetoric…my suggestion is to ignore them……I would NOT advise to “just show up to their protest, and protest…history has shown that to be a terrible idea……what you do, is get a legal permit to exercise your first amendment right, and then do so.
    so, as vile as white supremacist are, they can’t be held solely responsible for the violence that occurred…..because you would have to be a special kind of stupid to not realize that there were racist of their own and agitators there in force looking for a fight….and got the violence they were looking for.

Headlines in the sports pages and network television can be mighty heady to Fifth Avenue tycoons.”

  121. The Flying Pig says:

    I’m probably more upset about Lippett than McMillan

    Wtf!!!

    • Mike E. says:

      It’s frustrating and disheartening

      • The Flying Pig says:

        Well

        Teams have recovered form preseason injuries before

        I think the SB Panthers a few years ago had quite a few

        The thing about preseason injuries is you have time to adjust

        I just hope it’s not a ’17 theme
        This might be the year of the band aid for us😤🚑

      • steveccnv says:

        I thought last year was the band aid year. I think it’s every year.

  122. stangerx says:

    ESPN’s current projected overall FF pick number for a standard league (so no D involved)…..no one else even comes close to not being on the waiver wire post-draft. Parker could be a steal as 3rd or 4th wideout.

    16. Jay Ajayi, Mia RB
    37. Jarvis Landry, Mia WR
    106. DeVante Parker, Mia WR
    149. Kenny Stills, Mia WR
    205. Julius Thomas, Mia TE

  123. Mike E. says:

    Ajayi pre-concussion had to be a top 5 back

  124. Mike E. says:

    Stanger

    I was wondering where Julius Thomas was ranked at TE. He’s probably not ranked very high.

    • stangerx says:

      18th…..but keep in mind that it is just about FF rather than the player. He’s coming off of two bad fantasy years and competing with a stud RB and 3 real nice WRs for balls.

      • Mike E. says:

        Oh, I get it’s just FF, but I expected him to be ranked low. When you disappear for a couple of years, the FF experts don’t look kindly on that.

  125. Ken says:

    Stop pre season practice I am sick of all these injuries

  126. Ken says:

    Lippett was going to be my candidate for breakout player of the year. Now he is just broken

  127. Mike E. says:

    LOL @ Piggy – We seem to be having a BPOW every week right about now.

  128. Tim Knight says:

    That really sucks about Lippett. Feel bad for him. But guys have to practice. There is no way around it.

  129. Mike E. says:

    Larsen, McMillan, Tannehill and Lippett. Larsen is on the returnable I/R though

  130. son of a son of a shula says:

    Rush doing a live read for Lifelock is better radio than anything Ryan Russillo does. If ESPN got rid of anyone it should be him. He’s unlistenable.
    Mike and Mike is changing at the end of the year, Greeny is leaving and Trey Wingo and Golic Jr are coming in with Golic Se.

  131. ElephantRider says:

    Lippett…..DAMN!

    Bubble wrap the whole team!

  132. Rockphin says:

    Fuck! Lippet now? SMH I can’t believe this shit

  133. mf13ss says:

    Yeah, the Lippett injury really SUCKS: we’re going to miss his team-leading 4 INTs of last year. We must not lose ANYMORE key players, dammit!!! 😡

  134. son of a son of a shula says:

    Limpet’s foot just turned into a fin

    100% agreed… as does Mr. Snerdley. ESPN radio has become a joke, IMO.

      MF-13 and everyone else: Me and Mrs. OD will be travelling for a few days, combining work and visiting family We should return early next week. Y’all keep our boys HEALTHY as best you can.

    I’m afraid to wear my Dolphins jersey this year cause I might tear my ACL

  138. ElephantRider says:

    For some reason I can’t get the image of Belicheat as the Sith lord out of my head. I think it sheds light on what’s happening with all these year ending injuries….

  139. Brian in NY says:

    Did anyone tear a calf muscle getting out of their car in the parking lot today?

  140. steveccnv says:

    Walker has a new article out, our depth is being tested, and mentions Hull, Asiata and Steen, then says these aren’t considered upgrades. So 2nd stringers taking over for 1st stringers isn’t an upgrade 👹

  141. pheloniusphish says:

    So I was just looking at my calendar. Guess which home game is the only one I can’t be at?

  142. Mike E. says:

    NEW BLOG UP!

  143. mf13ss says:

    We’re paying nearly $27M this year against the cap to players on I/R. That’s almost 16% of our cap space.

    To put it another way, don’t ya wish we were $27M under the cap to sign a few players right now? Instead, we’re sitting at roughly $5M under the cap.

    I’m not sure about our 4th DT (Paul Soliai?), adding another LB (Maualuga?), or our depth on the O-Line. All I know is that $5M isn’t going to go very far.

    Soliai should go for about $1M
    Maualuga should go for about $3-4M
    O-Line should go for about ??? (Nick Mangold should go for about $5M)
