Happy Thanksgiving!


Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!  Enjoy the day with, family, friends, and have safe travels to wherever you’re going.  I hope there are some good games today, and I’m thankful we’re not playing today, because that wouldn’t be enjoyable at all! Don’t eat too much, ah bullshit, eat as much as you want!

    Memphis up 49-0 at the half 2 yards short of 500 yards total offense in the first half. They aren’t even trying to run up the score. Ferguson has only passed 12 times, 8-12 for 238 yards 2 TD, 0 INT. WR Anthony Miller (my Landry replacement if he doesn’t get resigned) 3 rec, 144 yards, 1 TD.

  2. BailBondMike says:

    Riley Ferguson with another 61 yard TD strike, geezzz. 55-0

  3. Mike E. says:

    McMillan was the 3rd fastest LB, behind Jabrill Peppers and Duke Riley. Some people just post things to be annoying. They know who they are and why they do it. Just become a fan of another team, it would be better for everyone.

  4. BailBondMike says:

    Time to watch a better game. Memphis sitting starters now in mid 3rd qtr leading 63-13. Ferguson was 9-13 for 299, 3 TD, 0 INT. 8 diff players scored. Perfect display of setting up the pass with the run by Memphis. Their only loss was a blow out loss to OD & Son’s UCF. I look forward to their rematch in the conf. championship.

    I just went back and watched a 12 minute video on the ND/Miami game. It was every offensive snap ND took and this is what I noticed. All 3 1st half picks by ND’s QB was with a clean pocket and most of the negative run plays in the first half and pressures where from the right side of ND’s o-line. With that said, Miami was dominate in both halves, and McGlinchey did have a few bad plays. …couple sacks, with one being a strip sack. As for Quenton Nelson, I didn’t see any bad plays. He was the only ND linemen that would get a passing grade.

    I wouldn’t hesitate to take Nelson, even with a pick in the 8-10 range of the 1st round. He’s probably the best OG prospect coming out since DeCastro and Mankins.

  6. Tim Knight says:

    BB Mike, you can find OL in the 3rd and 4th too. So let’s say we went OL in the 1st or 2nd and another in the 3rd or 4th, that’s a start. Maybe a FA as well and then let the competition begin. There is no perfect solution but there are only so many ways to find them. Let’s hope we can make some upgrades.

  7. Tim Knight says:

    We replaced Maxwell with a 3rd rd pick in Tankersley who has more upside for the future and his contract is off the books in 2018. No big deal. We ended up with Tunsil and Alonso and the team likes those two players. Way too much being made of it.

  8. rgs322 says:

    Now I know why Michigan isn’t ranked. …no QB.

  9. rgs322 says:

    Auburn/Alabama next….

  10. rgs322 says:

    Stidham and Kerryon Johnson are the two I’m keeping an eye on in this game.

  11. Tim Knight says:

    The way this team is set up, I think we’ll be in good shape moving forward. Are there some questions, sure? But we can rebound in 2018. This team is not void of talent. We just need some young guys getting better, get some guys back, and the vets play to their ability. Then add some upgrades. It’s not as dire as some of you seem to gleam about. LOL

    Not sure why some of you are so quick to piss on everything, but it’s getting kind of weird within under 2 years after a playoff appearance last year since the 08/09 season.

    Ross, Tannenbaum, Grier and Gase are in season 2 with a 3rd offseason coming up. Look at what has gone on with this team this season and then sit back and realize why it’s not what you covet?

    You want to keep ignoring it, go for it. But you’re not being realistic. All four will be back in 2018 and Tannehill will be the QB. Be a fan, jump off the bandwagon or whatever. But your predictions are nothing more than hyperbole.

    Go Phins!!!

    • Tim,
      this team made the playoffs with a last place schedule in Gase’s first season and now we’re 4-6 in his 2nd season. We won the division in Sparano’s first season and didn’t do squat after that. It’s more of the same old thing. I think people who see something other than what’s staring them in the face are the ones who aren’t being realistic.

      Yeah, you’re probably correct about those 4 being back next season but if they are it doesn’t mean it’s a good thing. You talk like this team is going to go somewhere if they keep this “core” of front office personnel, coaches and players around longer. It’s only going to prolong things and keep this franchise in the toilet for a few more years until either the team is sold, Tannenbaum is fired, Gas is fired, Tannehill is replaced or all of the above happens.

      • naplesfan2010 says:

        I disagree with Lou’s grim assessment.

      • You can disagree all you want but when you look at our 4-6 record it says differently.

      • Tim Knight says:

        I don’t compare past coaches and draft picks as being the same before they happen. It’s not the same people.

        This FO along with Gase has stuck to the draft plan with the exception of a few FAs and re-signing our own. Not much has gone right this year. But I do see a core in the future that can be built on.

        I haven’t written off this season because it can still happen. But I’m not overly opportunistic.

        If you don’t agree, it doesn’t really matter. You’re on your 180 flip that you have proven time and time again for years. None of us know what will happen. Life as a sports fan. 🙂

        Go Phins!!!!

      • where’s the core? who on the offensive line beyond Tunsil is salvageable at this point and don’t say Pouncey or James because Pouncey’s hip makes him a liability there and James hasn’t proven he’s reliable either.

        so, we’ve got 1 out of 5 positions on the offensive line sewn up for next season. this is the difference between mediocre teams and good teams. our guys look at the situation and say, “yeah, we’re good at 3 positions. we’ve got Tunsil at LT, Pouncey at C and James at RT. all we need are two guards”. That’s why this team sucks. They don’t see reality.

    • naplesfan2010 says:

      well written and right on target

  12. Mike E,
    I won’t say another word about McMillan’s speed. I’ll just let his speed, or lack thereof, speak for itself when he plays for us next season.

    • naplesfan2010 says:

      Mike E stated a fact.

      • Let me just say, in response to his comment above, I didn’t make the statement about McMillan to stir things up. If you go back to my comments before the draft I said the same thing. I didn’t want him. I said then he was too slow to react and there were plenty of examples of run plays getting around the edge because he couldn’t get there.

        He’s a downhill guy and if the play is in front of him he’s okay but he can’t play in space and he’s not got the sideline to sideline ability we need from a MLB. Once again, we chose a guy at a position just to fill a position because there was a need there rather than taking the best player we could regardless of position.

  13. Tim Knight says:

    The team was excited about McMillan. He was young at 21 years’s old, 6-2 240, quickness, speed and strength – 4.61 and 23 reps, a student of the game. His physical ability was secondary to his football IQ. Young guy willing to learn but got caught in a bad situation and a torn ACL. Yeah let’s write him off. Ugh!

  14. Tim Knight says:

    It’s all good.

    • can say the same about your comments as well Tim. being optimistic doesn’t mean you’re realistic. the team’s been sucking for a while and it’s not getting any better so I don’t understand how you can say your argument is better than someone who see’s it differently.

      • Tim Knight says:

        It’s not. You’re the one who knows all. There is a difference. I look at what we’re doing, you look at what you would do. You’re not a pro talent evaluator. Neither am I.

        My opinion is this team knows this year got fucked but the plan is still in place. They didn’t think they were going anywhere this year but they can’t tell the players that or send that message to the fans.

        All I’m saying is this team can rebound in 2018. You don’t have to agree, I don’t care. I get the 2017 season, it’s not good. Like I need to see stats and other crap to get it. LOL

      • I look at what we’re doing too and what I see isn’t good. We’re 4-6 after a fantasy 10-6 season and I said we’d go 10-6 last year. Bit of a homer I was even thought we did it. I also said we’d go 11-5 this season but I came to may senses.

        I’m adopting the “show me” attitude from here on out. When they actually DO IT then they can say they have/had a plan but, until then, I don’t care what they say. And, I’m not talking about going to the playoffs one year. Let’s see some consistency and then I’ll believe they actually know what they’re doing.

        Yeah, I’m not a pro talent evaluator. Apparently, there’s nobody on the Dolphins who is either.

    November 25, 2017 at 5:41 pm (Edit)
    You can disagree all you want but when you look at our 4-6 record it says differently.
    So our record this year is relevant but when someone mentions last years record it was a “fantasy “ or last place schedule. You are cherry picking again and your lack of credibility continues.

    • lol. last year is over. we’re in 2017. how is what we did last season the slightest bit relevant to what we’re doing this season? Ajayi had over 1,000 yds rushing for us last season and also had a couple 200 yd games. But, like Tim says, Ajayi is gone. Who cares? Last year we had Albert, Tunsil, Pouncey, Bushrod and James on the offensive line. This year we’re missing a LG. Everyone else was the same.

      I’m just telling it like it is. If you think I lack credibility than maybe you should take a look at the Phins organization because if there’s someone who lacks credibility it’s definitely them.

  19. BailBondMike says:

    Tim, I agree our team is not that far off. Our problem is consistency on our OL and our best TE is an aging Fasano. Our D has been on the field to much and we end up always having to play from behind. With the loss of Tanny, Gase dumbed down our offense to a fault.

    • IF Gase is the right guy for the job he may never get the chance to prove so as long as Tannenbaum is involved with this team. If Ross decides to get rid of Tannenbaum he may have a chance but if Tannenbaum stays I don’t think Gase will be able to do anything with this team.

    • The interesting thing about the inconsistency in the offensive line is 4/5 of the starters from last season are back. Boggles the mind.

    • Tim Knight says:

      It’s been a bad year and some peeps keep acting like it’s been the same thing for many years. Not true.

      I’m still rooting for us to beat the Pats this Sunday. If not, oh well.

      Go Phins!!!!

      • How hasn’t it? Please explain.

      • The Flying Pig says:

        He means it wasn’t a bad year last year. Why does he have to explain that Lou

        You know it hasn’t been the same thing for years when we were a playoff team last year

      • olddolphan says:

        ACTUALLY, TIM, it HAS been the same thing for many years. NOT ONE TIME since Ross took control of the team have I felt we were serious Super Bowl contenders. That also will be the case next year, too. We haven’t won a Playoff game since the 2000 season. If that’s not your version of being bad for many years, rest assured it is MY definition of not being good for many years. “BEING GOOD” means winning a playoff game. This will be our 17th consecutive season of not being good. And next year will be our 18th year.
        REST ASSURED, though, that I, like you, will be rooting for our team to beat the Cheats in Foxboro, something we have not done for about a decade, I believe. –I wonder if Gase will smile when Matt Moore passes for over 300 yards and leads us to victory??? Or, perhaps he’ll scowl and say “Cutler’s still the starter”?

  21. Adams and Shelton looked good on that opening drive for Washington.

  22. Tim Knight says:

    Piggy, hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. 🙂

  23. Randy says:

    I think this an average team with some nice individual pieces….but not enough. Our defense looks really good and then gives up big plays and 40 points. Inconsistent. Our offense, even with Tannehill, was mediocre. And it was also inconsistent. To me that’s the key. We have been so inconsistent in both phases. We are undisciplined and get a lot of penalties. I just can’t say a team who plays that way is anything but average. The troubling part is that we’ve seen it for years now. Talent doesn’t matter if you can’t make the basic play.
    I get that it has been a crazy year, but stuff happens to all teams. Yeah, we got our fair share this year, but the focused, disciplined, well-coached teams find a way to play thru it. We have looked bad in many games. There’s no excuse for that….I don’t care how crazy your season has been. This shit we’ve watched has sucked. Lol

  24. Tim Knight says:

    OD, we haven’t been real SB contenders since 1984/85. We got worse in every phase around Marino and never got good enough to beat the Bills even under Shula. Then Dan retired in 2000 under Jimmy Johnson after losing 62-7 to the Jags in the playoffs in 99/00. The worst loss in team history. This team hasn’t been a real contender for over 30 years including Shula for 10 years of it and Marino for 14. Who do you blame for that?

  25. mf13ss says:

    Ahhhh… my beloved kava. Oh how I like to drink you after exhausting day. I make toast to kava gods before each gulp. Great for relaxation and tongue always numb. I make another cup and drink it from coconut shell. Thank you Isaac Asiata and Mike Pouncey.

  26. olddolphan says:

    TIM; You are a shitty football historian. How many games Miami games did you attend between 1985 and 2000??? –I’m going to guess “ZERO”–which is also your credibility score with me when it comes to Dolphins’ history. For your edification, I will point out the year I believed the Dolphins were a credible team, a team that won MANY playoff games and was a damn sight better than ANY TEAM we’ve seen on the field lately.
    1990 12-4 (W-L record) WON Wild Card game.
    1992 11-5 Won AFC East and a divisional playoff game. Lost AFC Championship game.
    1994 10-6 Won AFC East and a wild card playoff game as Marino beat the Chiefs and Joe Montana.
    1998 10-6 Won wild card game over the Bills. Didn’t U say Shula coudn’t beat the Bills?
    1999 9-7 Won wild card game at Seattle.
    2000 11-5 Won AFC East. Won AFC playoff game over Manning and the Colts 23-17 in OT.
    AND JUST WHERE did you come up with this shit about “getting worse in every phase of the game under Marino and couldn’t beat the Bills under Shula”???? Want me to list every time Don Shula beat the Bills during his 26 years at Miami?? Want me to list all the NFL records set by Marino and Shula??? —Exactly what cave have you been living in??? LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    TRUTH IS,Tim, THIS ALL HAPPENED IN THE LAST 30 YEARS. And, yes, in several of those years, we had a respectable team capable of winning a playoff game. Of all the fabrications and lies you’ve posted on this site, your statements above must certainly be among the most inaccurate.
    Get a clue. Get a good football history book. And attend more games than you do. Then you should be on the road to finding the truth that, so far, has eluded you.

      OR how about that famous FOURTH string QB, Kurt Warner, the old grocery store bag boy who, in 1999, replaced Trent Green and won a SUPER BOWL??? –OOOOPS!!–1999 WAS BEFORE TIMS’ TIME, WASN’T IT??–LOL!!!

  28. Tim Knight says:

    OD, you like history the way you portray it. I’m well aware of all the stats you stated. What about playoff wins and realistic contenders? Not so good eh?

    You like to throw out insults yet I hear you’re some kind of great guy. Maybe I’m being fooled by others. You come off as immature to me. Have fun with your nonsense as the great historian. You’re not who I thought you were and I don’t care anymore what others say about you. I hope Ross lives to 100 and owns the team the entire time.

    Fuck you and your BS.

    I’m passing a cyber kava to both Old Dolfan and Tim. Drink up and feel the relaxation… ahhhhh.

    Good game here between Notre Dame and Stanford!

  31. Tim Knight says:

    M13, really? Do you want me to point out all of your failed prospects. Please!!!! How’s Dri Archer doing?

    It’s easy to play Monday morning QB and pretend to know shit. Give me a break. Sorry but OD is not who I thought he was. I reached out a few days ago to him and I guess he missed it or didn’t care. You want to spoon with him, go for it. I’m tired of it.

    • mf13ss says:

      I understand what you’re saying… I do. I just hate it when there’s ugliness going on on this board. I’m not going to referee the spat, assign who drew first blood, or call low blows… I just hope y’all can be more civil to one another.

      I hold you both in VERY high esteem, so I’m not going to say anything else about it.

      HEY!!! Who is this Dri Archer guy you speak of? NEVER HEARD OF HIM!!! LOL 😉

    • Tim Knight says:

      Shula was 4-17 against the Bills from 87-95 including the playoffs. I should pick up a history book? Maybe put down the Don Shula love fest bible. Marino was the QB the entire time with the exception of 1993 when he went down with the Achilles.

  32. Trey Adams of Washington actually suffered a season ending injury in October. So, I was having drunken hallucinations. hehehe

  33. Piggy,
    c’mon man. you’re not a playoff team one year surrounded by seasons where you don’t have a prayer of making the playoffs. it doesn’t work that way. you’re either a playoff team or you’re not. we made the playoffs last season. doesn’t mean we’re a playoff team.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      We were a playoff team last year
      And we are not this year

      So what is going on this year hasn’t been going on for years

      I think it’s simple

      • Making the playoffs and being a playoff team are two different things. If you’re a playoff team one year and the next year you’re this bad you were never a playoff team to begin with.

        Playoff teams have consistency. This team isn’t a playoff team.

      • The Flying Pig says:

        Obviously they are 2 different things

        But I told you what he meant and I think it was obvious

        This hasn’t been going on for years – that was his point and it’s a good one

      • we had a short interlude of decency and now we’re back to being mediocre again. so what has changed? it would be a different story if we were doing better this season but this is pretty much just a repeat of what’s been happening since the days of Sparano.

      • The Flying Pig says:

        I’m inclined to let it play out a little a judge with a critical eye

  34. Tim Knight says:

    Crickets! That’s what I thought.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      It’s because everyone fell on a sword simultaneously

      • Tim Knight says:

        Not really, OD is not the historian he thinks he is, unless it’s 1974 or prior. Good to have been there and enjoyed that, but in 2017 or in recent times to insult people when you don’t know what the fuck you’re talking about is something else.

      • The Flying Pig says:

        He means well
        Give him some room to vent
        Everyone here is a fan at the end of the day
        And none of us have any control over what the team does

  35. mf13ss says:

    I see discussion about Raekwon’s speed. You have two types of speed: straight-line speed and playing speed. Both are great to have, but playing speed > straight-line speed.

    Zach Thomas was a slow straight-line speed runner, but he was so football smart that his playing speed was incredible. Let’s hope Raekwon is in the film room at least half as much as Zach. If so, he’s going to be a NICE player for us. I’m cautiously optimistic about his future, granted he comes back 100% from his ACL injury.

    • Tim Knight says:

      You didn’t care when it was Jaylon Smith so Raekwon should be good right?

    • The Flying Pig says:

      Before he was a Dolphin I was a big critic of his and thought he played slow

      I expected a slow 40 time and was proven wrong
      I guess we will have to wait to see him play on he field

      But I am happy we have a young LB to work with in ’18

      • I would be thrilled with Roaquan Smith, Tremaine Edmunds or Lorenzo Carter to go with our other LB’s.

      • I used to be like that but I can’t do it anymore. I would be a critic of a player and then when we would draft them and I’d jump on the bandwagon but I’m doing it again because it never turned out for the best.

        I call it like I see it and more often than not it’s worked out that way. We’ve taken way too many players from 2010 to the present I wasn’t a fan of and they didn’t pan out with this team and McMillan, IMO, will be the next one who Phins fans won’t be thrilled with after they see him. Again, just my opinion, and if it turns out he is a good player I’ll be more than happy to eat my words but I didn’t like him before the draft and just because he’s on the team I don’t have to like him.

  42. ElephantRider says:

    Facts shmacts…..I only care about my version.

    • Tim Knight says:

      “We got worse in every phase around Marino and never got good enough to beat the Bills even under Shula.”

      I point this out going 4-17 during 87-95 against the Bills and I get told I need to learn history. This is history. Shula got schooled because he forgot about defense. He had the QB but kept drafting half ass WRs and RBs. Nobody wants to hear that because he’s an icon. A great coach would have gone to 2-3 SBs with Marino. No?

      • ElephantRider says:

        Shula was the greatest coach ever, imo. But he got old……

      • Tim Knight says:

        Maybe during a decade Shula was the guy. He’s the HC of longevity with the most wins but not a big winner in big games. Nobody wants to hear this.

        2-3 in SBs with Miami and 0-2 with the Colts. Yes he got there but he isn’t viewed any longer as a championship HC. I love the man and had a poster of him on my my wall in probably 1975 or so. But let’s be real, he lost big games more than he won them. Nobody wants to hear this.

  43. Tim Knight says:

    Bill Belichick is 5-2 in SBs as a HC and is 2-1 as a DC. He’s coached in 10 SBs. Regardless of what you think of him, 10 is hard to debate. Most coaches would love to get to one. He has 10 appearances at 7-3. That’s a charmed life.

        I hear what you are saying tho. People on here want you to listen to the cold hard facts…..only when it suits them. Fact is if you are my age, you’ve never experienced a championship. And I only remember the loss to SF…..I was 10. It’s now 33 years later. But let’s bitch about the newest owner because the last one was so awesone.

      • Tim Knight says:

        So they say and I hate the Pats on a sports fan level, lol. But if you’re a coach or player and get to be a part of the run of a 10 or maybe 11 SB run? WTF?!!!

        LOL @ 2:16

        In the 1985 SB 84 season, I was 19 and listening to a friend of mine telling me, dude…. I told you the 49ers were too good and would shut you down. I had to say fuck you, you were right. LOL

    Compensatory picks are usually some time in March. Should we expect much? Who did we lose vs. gain in FA? I don’t expect much if anything.

    Yes I’m up late or early or whatever you want to call it. 🙂

    • Brian in NY says:

      We lost Sims (5th rounder) and no one else I can think of that would possibly grant us compensation. We re-signed a bunch of our own this past offseason, so I don’t expect much compensation, if any.

      I guess it depends on whether or not you have gone to sleep yet!

    WELL,WELL,WELL. –I return to this site and I read Tim’s reply: “FUCK YOU and YOUR BS!”
    Way to go, Tim. THAT’s the most intelligent thing you’ve said in some time. Is ripping Marino and Shula to shreds the best you can do?? Boy, you’ve REALLY convinced everyone on this site that you are THE FOOTBALL EINSTEIN, haven’t you? If this is your idea of extending the hand of peace then I’m afraid I’ll have to say “no, thank you.”
    I realize that, for some, this is the time of “alternative facts” where fiction is treated as fact. But the facts are that your’s truly was, for the most part, a happy camper during the ’70’s, the ’80’s and most of the ’90’s. The Dolphins’ overtime playoff win over the Colts in the 2000 playoffs made me proud to be a Fins’ fan. Taking the long view, the years from 1966 to 2000 were full of positives and monumental achievements. Instead of ripping Marino & Shula, I stood with pride and was proud of this team’s first 35 years. Didn’t have to blame this team although, some on this board would have you believe the first 35 years weren’t so good.
    But THAT’s what I would expect from an amateur observer who, apparently, didn’t feel strong enough about the Fins to go to Super Bowls, attend playoff games, or celebrate the greatness of those years by attending a few home or road games.

    I feel sorry for you. You missed a lot, and it shows.

      Not speaking for Tim here or anyone else
      but sometimes when you (and I) speak of the good ol’ days of Dolphins greatness,
      I think instead of instilling pride in them, it makes them sad they missed it or pissed they missed it.
      I think sometimes it seems like you’re gloating to them about something they did not participate in, as if they are not as “good” as you are, or as good of a fan, when most of these guys were not even born in time to have gone to the Super Bowl in 1972.

      I think constantly comparing our current teams, coaches, FO, stadium ambiance, etc.
      to the magical near perfection of the best coach in NFL history, the perfect season, and the rockin’ intimacy of the Orange Bowl seems like throwing it up in their face, like fun we had that they can never have.

      And really the odds of us ever achieving that standard again are slim. But it’s not necessary for us to see that again for them to enjoy being a Miami football fan today.

      So if you scream the fun out of being a fan these days, you are going to get some pushback.

    Tim, I am not expecting any comp picks that way I don’t get disappointed.

    Shula was 4-17 against the Bills from 87-95 including the playoffs
    Marino was the QB the entire time with the exception of 1993

    Why are you cherry picking certain years? if you want to compare marino and shula vs the bills shouldn’t you include all games played?

    Today we separate Brady head from Brady body

    that’s why I got rid of the barcalounger. I thought it was barking at me.
    That was funny Lou.

  53. ocalarob says:

    Marino and shula went 10-10 against Buffalo all time, and that includes the 4 years Buffalo fielded a very strong team and went to 4 straight superbowls

    • ocalarob says:

      11-14 all time, not sure how much Marino played 94 after his achilles in 93?

      • ElephantRider says:

        He was mainly talking about Shula. Things weren’t so roseyt even though you’d think Phins have been playing in SBs every year til Ross bought the team

  54. ocalarob says:

    Go Miami

  55. The Flying Pig says:

    If we don’t get dumb penalties today we can win

    Bonus if we hurt Brady
    He was on the madden cover this year…where’s the curse?

    • naplesfan2010 says:

      The TRIfecta…
      Hurt LadyBoy, Amendola, & Gronk all 3 before halftime.

      That’ll give us a 50/50 chance to come back from the 3 TD deficit.

  56. Mike E. says:

    Wow, this got ugly fast. I hope you guys can find it in your hearts to forgive each other. I hate to see this, although I understand it. We’re all very frustrated by our team’s failures this season. Winning cures a lot of things, no question about that.

    Here’s to hoping for better things from our team, and our blog going forward. It would be great to start today with a big upset win against the Patriots. Most prognosticators don’t give us a chance, and I get it, we haven’t given anyone a reason to think otherwise. I’d love to see us beat the Patriots, however it happens.

    He played all 16 games and had on of his best seasons

  58. Mike E. says:

    No knock against Shula, but he coached most of his career without free agency. Comparing him to modern HC’s is pretty difficult. It’s a completely different landscape these days. So few teams are able to maintain a high level of play, and there are just a handful of teams that are perennial contenders, Patriots, Steelers, Ravens, and Seahawks. There might be a couple of other teams, but those have been the most dominant.

    • Ken says:

      We were perennial contenders and playoff teams with Shula for the better part of 2 decades. As the game started changing started changing in the mid 90s is when Shula started to lose his touch. We made some bad free agency investments at that time

  59. ElephantRider says:

    Mike E

    I don’t things escalated fast. I’ve been reading his knocks on Tim for awhile now. Tim bit back, no biggie.

    #26 Damien Williams will start at running back

    #79 Sam Young will start at right tackle

    Good grief…JS comes back and starts in on the plagiarism thing again? And it’s not just saying it here….from what I understand he’s gone outside the blog to try to settle the score. Not sure about anyone else but I’ve had enough of it.

    Stay the hell away from the blog and from all of us in our lives. What kind of f’ed up do you have to be to do that? I don’t care if OD copied every single word….who the hell made you the police of the blog? If he had copied it all, what harm did it cause you JS? Hmmmm? Some petty jealously or whatever you want to call it. You’re like some grade school tattle tale, trying to get someone in trouble. I had to set up your account myself when this blog first started because you couldn’t figure it out yourself. I’m ready to pull the plug on you and your bullshit.

    jetsssuck – Was that really nasty, personal attack necessary? WTF?

  68. herdfan says:

    Wow….Not going to debate my age, or the end of my marriage, none of that is a secret. My Dad however is a different story. He was a good man, a great dad to me and my sister. He worked hard to provide for us and died one of the cruelest ways imaginable. To go there to try to score some points….lower than low.

    Way to go JS….you truly have shown the type of person you are.

  69. herdfan says:

    What pathetic excuse of a human being does that kind of thing?
