Week 1 NFL Wrap Up with The Little Prawn





Well as most of you know the Dolphins Week 1 game was postponed until their BYE week because of the threat of Hurricane Irma, so we will have to wait another wee….

Prawnyat stadium

Prawny!!! Don;t tell me you showed up at the game?!?!  Didn’t you hear???

The game was postponed!!!

Get out of there!  It’s dangerous!!!


Oh No!!! Prawny!!!!

Well I guess there is no reason to check out other scores around the league…

Let’s start with the AFC East teams that played on Sunday


If you wanted to see the way the game should not be played the Jests traveled to Buffalo to take on the Bills. in the Poop Bowl of 2017!

These two teams suck but in the contest to suck worse, the jests mustered just 11 first downs and 12 total points.

The Bills are in 1st place in the AFC East right now…Yuk


Speaking of poop the Browns struggled again with the Steelers

This is nothing new for the Browns.  Ben Rothlisberger is probably as comfortable there as he is in Pittsburgh.  This time the Browns held a potent Steelers offense to 21 points…so…

Deshone Kizer also made he debut for the poops throwing for 222 yards and one touchdown.

Hey Look!  Prawny made the game…Prawny…where are you going?

Oak Tenn

Oh…off to Tennessee.  Glad you made a game Prawny

Amari Cooper, Derek Car and Marshawn Lycnh looked pretty good for the Raiders…

and the Titans…well they look average…again…


Another rookie, Deshaun Watson, really struggled for the Texans.

In fairness, Tom Savage started the game for the Texans – bit Watson didn’t look good either

The Janguars sacked both quarterbacks a total of 10 times and beat the Texans 29-7.

Hey Prawny – slow down!


I didn’t forget about the Falcons vs Bears.

The Falcons almost lost to the Bears on opening weekend.  The game was the closest game of the day.

Mike Glennon was sacked on the final play of the game inside the 10 and the Falcons held on for the win….albeit they didn’t score nearly as much as their 2016 season.

Well Let’s hope Prawny lands in Los Angeles next week.

Th Dolphins will play their first game of the season in L.A.

Go Dolphins!!!

    Let me save guys like Omar the trouble. Eli is 4-6 22 yards, hes washed up. OV has a sack in the first half, so projected out for the season that’s 32…

  9. Ken says:

    Giants offense and in particular the offensive line looks like shit

  10. Tim Knight says:

    This team is investing in a lot of young talent.

  11. Brian in NY says:

    I’ve watched a lot of football in my life, and this is one of the most impressive plays I’ve seen:

  12. Brian in NY says:

    BTW, What the hell are you doing up at 1:23 am Tim?!!!! Do you sleep?

  13. ocalarob says:

    who one the dallas game?

  14. ocalarob says:

    storm is overhead, didn;t lose power but lost internet and TV, using hotspot on my phone for internet

  15. jetsssuck says:

    going to get some sleep-never again going to a walmart shelter-18 fricking kids running around the rented house. didn’t sleep in almost 24 hrs.

  16. son of a son of a shula says:

    Remember Lt Dan on the shrimp boat during the hurricane?

    That was me last night on my roof top tied to the chimney

  17. son of a son of a shula says:

    She won’t see this so I’ll tell you guys.
    The best part was sitting in the hot tub naked, wife and I, watching the surrounding trees dance to Irma’s gusts. It was a lot of fun. (Hot tub on porch)

  18. steveccnv says:

    Biggest surprise of the weekend, Dolphins fans didn’t have anything to bitch about😉

  19. steveccnv says:

    Anyone hear from Naples?

  20. stangerx says:

    Son — how’d your place do?

  21. Ken says:

    Son too much information. You know your wife is somebody’s grandmother

  22. wyoming85 says:

  23. ElephantRider says:

    Hope everyone made it thru safe.

    Also, never forget…….May the men and women stay safe out there that are putting everyone back to normal.


  24. herdfan says:

    Woohooo, if the Dolphins practice facility is damaged they are coming here next week to practice. I’d better get ready!!! I assume this would be at the Greenbrier since the Saints had training camp there for a couple of years. Kind of makes me hope it was damaged. Is that wrong?


  25. Tim Knight says:

    Brian, I just happened to be up late last night and wanted to see if anything changed on our roster the last few days that I might have missed. 🙂

  26. stangerx says:

    Phish — how is Key West doing? One of my buddies has a house there.

  27. herdfan says:

    With everything else going on didn’t want to not mention this today.

  28. D says:

    Calais Campbell is projected for 56 sacks this year.

  29. manitobafinfan says:

    stanger how you fare ?? do ya have power ??

    • jetsssuck says:

      link doesn’t work-I got several pics from orlando former co-workers that had big tree fall on their cars. I can’t cut and paste

      • herdfan says:

        That’s not what I’m trying to post obviously. I’ll do it later from home with my laptop. Some things I just can’t do as well with my phone. 😖

  30. D says:

    Damn Kevin White has already been put on IR again. Missed first season on IR, only played a little last season and not 3rd season and one game in, IR again.

  31. D says:

    They may have given him an additional half, but i watched that game and at the end they were saying 3.5 for the day. Thats where my math doesn’t come up right i guess, because i was just going off what they had said during broadcast.

  32. D says:

    Just think about it…
    The Jets are tied with the Patriots for bottom of the division.
    The Patriots defense gave up more point than the Jest and Bills’ defenses combined.
    The Patriots defense gave up the 2nd most points of any team week 1.
    Tom Brady had an equivalent QB rating to that of Brian Hoyer
    His comp percentage was the worst in the NFL, by an almost full 6%
    Both Rookie QB’s had more TD passes than him.

    maybe “cut and paste” id doesn’t of the “cut” doesn’t because of cutting?

  34. CavalierKong says:

    One of the most unbelievable baseball stats I’ve ever seen. During the Indians 18 game win streak they have held the lead in 158 of 162 innings. In 18 games, they have been behind at the end of only 4 innings.

    Hope everybody is OK.
    Can’t wait to watch a Dolphins game.

  35. jetsssuck says:

    The contruction crane is going to get more regulationns because of the 3 contraction cranes falling when the representatives told the gov. that the cranes were good up to 145 mph .We ijn S.florida only got 105 mph. It’s now been reported that these high rise now according to construction representatives it takes 6 weeks to disassemble. Carrier Lincoln heading to key west—been done before-carrier can house, feed and provide filtered water along with hospital medicare care. 3 other navy ships heading to KW.

    • pheloniusphish says:

      I believe they are sending the Kearsage as well. She’s a LHD-3 (Wasp-class amphib carrier) that can also provide a full hospital and water as well as landing craft.

      • jetsssuck says:

        very bad situation for KW. The phone service should be restored when they get pers0onal in the area. Temporary cell towers Biloons designed to work after 911. Odd that they were designed for 911 situations and these plans are goona be implemted on date 911.

  36. Mike E. says:


    I echo your sentiments – I really am looking forward to watching the Dolphins play. This week kinda sucked without a Dolphins game

  37. Ken says:

    Any word from Naples?

  38. herdfan says:

    Tried to do this earlier but apparently I’ve become technology challenged in my old age. With all the talk of the hurricane and the first game of the season, I didn’t want to forget this.

  39. mf13ss says:

    I’m anxiously awaiting Naples, Old Dolfan, and Rockphin to check in here…

  40. Tim Knight says:

    Piggy, I get it about 9/11. I will never forget but I still hate that day.

  41. mf13ss says:

    The Flying Pig says:
    September 11, 2017 at 10:41 pm
    I just hate reliving it I guess
    Understood… just don’t FORGET it. The terrorists didn’t care about YOU either, ya know.

  42. herdfan says:

    I thought I couldn’t dislike Rex Ryan more than I already did. But I was wrong.

  43. D says:

    Piggy it’s not remembering the day and the events, or it shouldn’t be, it recognizing something that happened to us that should be guarded against so it doesn’t repeat. Like so many historical things it should be treated in such a way a open wound isn’t allowed to heal. We should heal but that scar doesn’t need to not do it’s job too.

  44. D says:

    It’s also good to remember the best of that day when we actually acted like Americans and supported one another and sacrificed for one another. That tragedy helped us regain our humanity, if for only briefly. It would be nice if remembering 911 was more about remembering that aspect so we don’t have to suffer so much to get back to that place

  45. ElephantRider says:

    VJ defense looks like Phins crumbling at the end. Lol. Good thing Chargers blew it.

  46. Rockphin says:

    Morning guys. Just checking in with you all know that I am fine. No damage to my condo in Boynton and I still don’t know the condition of the house in Rockledge. I had power throughout the storm but they must have shut it off to repair the grid because I had no power all day yesterday. Go figure! I hope everyone else is well too.

  47. Mike E. says:

    Good to hear you’re OK Rock. Has anyone heard from Naples? OD?

  48. Mike E. says:

    Anyone hear from ORob?

  49. jetsssuck says:

    During Harvey aftermath Cuba offered to assist with 1100 doctors but the offer was declined, let’s hope this administration offers Cuba and the people badly needed help. No time to play politics with people’s life’s.

  50. stangerx says:

    Phins are three point dogs against the Rams.

  51. Mike E. says:

    Stanger – It is confusing with the LA Rams and now the LA Chargers. The LA Rams don’t seem wrong, but the LA Chargers still sound funny to me

  52. Rockphin says:

    Either way, I snorted out loud at this reply

    I went to the office today to take down the plywood and get everything situated there is still no power at the office but it’s back on at home. Yeah! Boss showed up as I was taking down the last board and asked me if the power was on yet. Of the 16 people who work at the office only me in the little old lady office manager showed up to do anything

  53. Rockphin says:

    to prepare for the storm we disconnected all the computers and equipment and moved it to a central safe room by we I mean myself and two others so today I got my stuff and the stuff I will use when the power comes back on set back up and screw everyone else

    Three Cruise ships parked off shore waiting for the Cruise Port to re-open. Those folks had a whole lot longer trip than they expected and right now are worried about getting home.

    The chargers looked pretty good last night. They had a chance to beat the broncos in denver and blew it. I think the phins have their work cut out for them this week.

    I’m pretty sure the official last night said San Diego instead of LA at least once.

    Three Cruise ships parked off shore waiting for the Cruise Port to re-open. Those folks had a whole lot longer trip than they expected and right now are worried about getting home.

    That happened to me during Wilma I got married on a Ford day cruise the turned into a 7 day cruise because the port was closed got stuck right off shore in the middle of Hurricane Wilma we could see the port

  59. Rockphin says:

    When I got caught on Royal Caribbean during Wilma they tried to run from the storm but had to turn around because of hurricane Alpha which was coming up the Straits maybe Hurricane Jose did the same thing for the cruise ships coming back after running from Irma

  60. Rockphin says:

    We experienced 40ft waves with 90 mile an hour winds it was wicked scary. You would be standing there feeling the boat come up underneath you and it would feel like you weighed twice as much and then the next thing you know you were weightless in the ceiling was coming down and hitting you in the head

  61. Rockphin says:

    Imagine being with 1,200 people who are sea sick!! The crew was throwing up

  62. Rockphin says:

    the sound of it was the scariest rattling creaking popping so loud it was like you were inside a popcorn popper but ten times as loud

    • Mike E. says:

      Must have been terrifying. Helpless too, because when you’re out in that big ocean, and the weather goes wrong, suddenly that huge ship seems pretty small.

      • D says:

        Id equate that to an earthquake kind of experience, because the “ground” beneath you is moving by itself, heaving and then dropping. Like a being near the epicenter of a high rector value earthquake.

      • D says:

        Incidentally, earth quake is a natural sdisaster i hope i never have to deal with, the idea of it by itself is terrifying to me.

    • D says:

      Probably was rivets giving way…. sounds like a really great day to have worn your brown pants.

  63. The Flying Pig says:

  64. steveccnv says:

    Have you ever been in an earthquake D. Thats rhetorical, since the answer is in your comment.

  65. ElephantRider says:

    When the big quake in SF during the world series hit my dog started going crazy just before it hit. It was scary watching the house behind ours move…..that was the worst one I ever felt.

  66. jetsssuck says:


    3 Construction hi rise cranes failed during the 105 mph hurricane and the crane industry said they could be safe at 145 mph. Crane industry already making more excuses to safer regulations.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      Why don’t they just take them down

      • jetsssuck says:

        money is greater than human life to the industry. NY imposed greater state regulations than feds regs but Florida is lacking state representative that are afraid to go against this high risk industry. We will see again which side these state bureaucrats are on.

      • steveccnv says:

        Did anyone die as result of these cranes falling JS?

      • steveccnv says:

        The more regulations the more leverage these asshole politians have. They really don’t give a fuck about lives lost either, it’s their way of making a career out if it. People that believe these swamp politicians care about human life are naive. Big business doesn’t either.

      • The Flying Pig says:

        Those cranes can easily kill some one, whether they have or not yet doesn’t make a difference to me

        I would not count on self regulation to prevent a tragedy. That has never worked n any society

      • jetsssuck says:

        not that I know-I think in NY several yrs ago 1 or maybe 2 died.Our local politicians have been through this before with trying to get more regulations for this industry.
        steveccnv says:
        September 12, 2017 at 4:49 pm
        Did anyone die as result of these cranes falling JS?

  67. Brian in NY says:

    These new teams in LA thing are really messing me up- I kept thinking we were playing the Rams for the past week and a half.

  68. Tim Knight says:

    The whole crane thing seems pretty simple. Hey look a big hurricane is coming, take the cranes down sounds like a good idea. Everyone boards up their houses and stores, tie down boats and such, but lets leave really huge, heavy machines that could fall over hanging around. Sometimes things are mind boggling.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      I don’t get what these developers were thinking

      People bring there freakin lawn furniture inside as a precaution
      take down the crane if a big storm is coming.

      How long does it take to take it down and then put it up again after the storm passes?

      • Mike E. says:

        Shouldn’t a crane be stable? Did you ever see the Karate Kid?

      • The Flying Pig says:

        I missed that movie Mike

        I was waxing off

      • Brian in NY says:

        “Sweep the leg!”

      • jetsssuck says:

        i think i remember them saying weeks to dismandle. The last time they tried to put additional added regulations they said. Papers questioned the safety and why couldn’t they hire addition workers to speed the time to dismandle the crane.Odd the politicians didn’t ask these questions. Hopefully we learn like after Andrew additional safety regulations put into effect and make these crane companies accountable.

    • jetsssuck says:

      the news is reporting south florida only got barely cat1 hurricane winds. Power company bragged about 3 billion upgrades pd with customer surcharges and we have unacceptable outages.Audits need to be made where this 3 billion went. I have 200 gallon gas tank and neighbors are begging me for gas to run their generators.. I feel sorry declining these neighbors but my family comes first and they can search for gas stations that have gas.

  69. The Flying Pig says:

    well if it takes weeks to dismantle
    it makes sense not to take it down

    I was thinking more like a day or 2

    I’m sure the number of employees they hire makes a difference so if its reasonable to hire people to take it down in a couple of days, I think they need to do that

    end of the day even without any law in place they are still responsible for damages or death in any civil suit just under a negligence theory, so Steve has a point

    • pheloniusphish says:

      Two weeks to take down

      • Mike E. says:

        OK, good answer. Now, do you need a permit in FLA to have a 200 gallon gas tank on residential property?

      • jetsssuck says:

        2 weeks is what i heard before and depending on how high. We are hearing the developers and crane industry lying right now. The new stations are doing good investigative research on this issue that is self regulated on getting their way if it is costly and takes the profits away.
        FPL is getting hammered with bad press deservedly. No reason the electric should be out with cat1 winds. We were supposed to improve from a cat3 storm which was barely.
        I did some research and it was ny that had a crane that fell to ground and 1 person was killed and several hurt.

  70. jetsssuck says:

    Mike E. says:
    September 12, 2017 at 6:36 pm
    Do you need a permit for a 200 gallon gas tank? That seems like a MAJOR fire hazard
    Of course you need a permit in Florida and we under go inspections. Code is very hard but good safety precaution. I think the gas company that delivers the gas is a snitch if something isn’t up to code.
    I wonder if the atmospheric change effects electronic equipoment.My va telehealth meter is giving false answers and my logic tech wirekless keyboard is putting out key strokes i put in. VA came by today thinking something was wrong. Maybe the nuclear t3ests by N.Korea affects the atmosphere for the earth. With all this money and damage hurricanes do you would think the gov’t could kill hurricanes before they pay with FEMA. Why could’t they foind out how to kill hurricane coming out of africa

    It’s one of those things that just because it takes 40 man hours to do something it doesn’t mean that 40 men can do it in an hour.

    40 women probably could though. 😊

    I forget who plays Thursday but them and every team that plays at 1 on Sunday will have played 2 games before we’ve played one.

  73. olddolphan says:

    JUST READ the talk about the LA Rams/Chargers an just who is who in the franchise world. How many of you know the Rams franchise won their FIRST NFL TITLE as the Cleveland Rams (in 1945)??? –NOT wanting to compete with Paul Brown and his new Browns franchise in the new All American Football Conference, Rams management convinced the NFL to let them move to the Los Angeles market for the 1946 season. The 1945 Rams thus became the ONLY FRANCHISE to win an NFL title and then MOVE TO A DIFFERENT CITY the next season.
    HURRICANE UPDATE: We’re all safe and sound in this house, despite a ton of rain and wind gusts in the mid-90’s. Lots of tree limbs down, but no heavy damage in our development about 20 miles north of Tampa. And the power stayed on. Took about 6-8 hours of work to clear the mess. We are very fortunate indeed.

    However, an employee of the firm I work for is still not accounted for. Since so many cell phone towers were blown to kingdom come, we’re not too alarmed yet. My guess is that he left Florida at “the last moment” and is having great difficulty driving back here. Gas is still very scarce, and the roads back to the southern half of the state are jammed-up. Many have pulled over at large gas stations just off of I-75, the Turnpike, or I-95 and are waiting for tomorrow’s gas delivery which may or may not come. Thousands of cars are either extremely low on gas or dead empty. Many schools and businesses are closed for the rest of the week, partly because so many people are unable to drive back to the southern half of the state. But once the gas is distributed, this crisis should end pretty soon. The damage in the middle keys is catastrophic. And the Naples area also took a huge hit. But Florida always seems to find a way to bounce back from major hurricanes.

    Finally, regarding the Fins upcoming 16 straight weeks of NFL football, only 8 teams have had to play a “BYE-LESS” schedule since bye weeks started in 1990. The ’92 Dolphins went 11-5 in 1992 and remain the only “BYE-LESS” team in NFL history to have a winning record!! The other 7 teams have a combined “BYE-LESS” record of 35 wins and 77 losses, a .313 winning percentage. Interestingly, the ’92 Patriots went 2-14 in their only “BYE-LESS” season. And NO NFL TEAM has been forced to have a “BYE-LESS” season since 2001. This season, due to Dolphins’ management’s decision, TWO teams, the Bucs and the Fins, will go “BYE-LESS.” This fact is not lost on fans of the Buccaneers.

    HEY RIGEL SPIKES!!– How did you like the performance of rookie starting Center Pat Elflein of the Vikings?? Hope we don’t regret passing on him!

    • jetsssuck says:

      “Since so many cell phone towers were blown to kingdom come”— the towers themselves were not blown away the dish or attenna that u can see maybe. The backup generators may not be working. These towers are designed to withstand high cat4 withstand gusts over 180mph to 200mph. Irma was barely a low cat3 in Northern Florida.

      The middle keys suffered extensive damage but not like the lower keys Cat 4 where they have catastrophic damage like many places in Cuba which had record cat5 winds over their island for a record.amount of time .. We had Cat1 barely in broward ,Dade had cat 2-3 depending on where one was at in dade county.

    • jetsssuck says:

      concerning your unaccounted worker—UNBELIEVABLE—don’t u think someone should drive over to where he is staying. Call next of kin to see if he has contacted them. Poor planning on everyone’s part. No hurricane plans then you are planning for failure. We have been taught in South Florida to have a plan for ensuring everyone is accounted for. Everyone has 1-2 people to call to make sure everyone is good. If no one has heard from a unaccounted person then people that are closest to that person brings food, water along with Hurricane supplies (gas)and updates the others and next of kin person is ok.
      These are basic emergency plans. UNBELIEVABLE

  74. jetsssuck says:

    Just got electric back, hopefully for more than 1 day this time.

    • olddolphan says:

      JS: NOT POOR PLANNING. This employee has no “next of kin” and lives about 60-70 miles south of Tampa in the Sarasota area from which he commutes to work. GET A CLUE before you start ripping people!! UNBELIEVABLE!!!!
      PS: This employee also chose not to share a contact person’s phone number, saying “just call my wife” who, of course, has the same phone number as him. Perhaps you, in your infinite wisdom, could persuade this guy to leave YOUR NAME AND PHONE NUMBER before the next hurricane. We’d really appreciate your help!

      • jetsssuck says:

        inexcusable.Very basic information on planning. You still try to defend your companies poor basic planning while he could be dying in his house….unbelievable incompetence…call the police if you are inconvenienced or no one in company wants to go out of their way to drive the 60-70 miles to check on the unaccounted person.Glad I never worked for a shit poor employer that doesn’t value its employees.Send me his phone number and address and I’ll call the police.

      • steveccnv says:

        100% what OD said.

  75. pheloniusphish says:

    OD & JS – You guys going start swinging walkers? Don’t wan’t to get caught with a back swing by accident.

  76. ocalarob says:

    The cranes run up the elevator shaft, it takes hydraulic jacks to raise them to the next floor level, as a union iron worker any metal that mounts to concrete was our business so we had to have a crew on to jack the cranes up, it takes 8 hrs to go 10 feet. all overtime work as you can’t jack the cranes with workers working underneath.

    • jetsssuck says:

      I heard yesterday some crane companies can take up to six weeks to disassemble .Lots of talk about regulations being added this time.The crane companies are under the gun this time and we are hearing many conflicting facts from them and some of these so called facts are being debunked by other crane companies not knowing what the others are saying. In fact, yesterday a building side of residents had to be evacuated because a crane was hanging over the side of a high rise building. More than 10% of the hi-rise cranes in between dade and broward had felll or is about to fall.S.Florida experienced a low Cat3 and barely a hurricane in broward.

    • jetsssuck says:

      so the circular pillars that we see in the news is like stilts to build that foundation for that floor?. I imagine special cement is also used.

  77. ocalarob says:

    no tv limited internet due to wireless app that everyone is using, gas lines are ridiculous, i seen a gas station yesterday that had small lines, i thought i hit the jackpot! pulled in and they were all camped out there waiting for the next truck of gas to come! the good news is my power went out for about 5 hrs only
