The Wedge Scouting Report: Kamryn Pettway, Auburn

I am relaxing today.  And man do I need it.  How does an Intergalactic Agent relax when he is not destroying lifeforms?  I bowl!


I’m working on my game.  Honestly I’ve never bowled a strike in my life.  But who needs to knock down pins when you can destroy planets!

Wedge Bowling

Let’s see just release this bowling bomb down lane 15 and….



Nothing is going to stop that ball…just like Kamryn Pettway the Auburn Running Back.


Positives:  Built like a fullback, Pettway is one of this classes bigger backs.  He’s 6-0, 235 pounds and a classic North/South runner.  If the Dolphins want thunder to go along with Drake – Pettway fits that mold.

In his best season at Auburn, Pettway gained 1,224 yards on he ground on 209 carries.  That’s an impressive 5.9 yard a carry.  To know surprise Auburn used Pettway a lot in the redzone.  He scored 13 touchdowns the last two seasons at Auburn.

Pettway has a great initial burst.  But its when he picks up speed that he does the most damage, bowling defenders over.  Pettway isn’t just a big man – he runs like a big man.  He uses that size effectively to wear down defenses.


Negatives:  He’s not a home run threat.  Like I said, he’s a north and south runner, who is really better suited for picking up tough yards rather than long runs.

He fractured his should in 2017 and only played in 5 games – no doubt the injury is a result on his running style which is basically “get out of my way”

Only 6 catches at Auburn isn’t going to catch a lot of GMs eyes.  Like many other backs – he needs to work on his blocking as well.


The Alien Dust:  The injury and the lack of breakaway speed means Pettway will be available late in the draft.  I expect him to be a day 3 pick.  If the Dolphins don’t pick a running back, he might be a great fall back option.

I would love to see a big back like Pettway paired with Drake to be our version of Thunder and Lightning.  I even wonder if Pettway can play fullback.


The alien weapon of destruction Pettway compares to should be obvious to you.  He’s a galactic bowling bomb – BOOM!

    i went to do a mock on fanspeak this morning and noticed a lot of movement of positions for players from just last week. I keep missing on Billy Price because the computer is mocking him in the late 1st now and Dallas Goedert is going in the 2nd now when I was drafting him in the 3rd and 4th two weeks ago.
    Goedert is the one player I am really hoping the Dolphins pick. My only draft crush this year.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      There usually a ton of movement right after a major scouting event

      I’m sure the senior bowl changed everything
      The combine is usually the most dramatic event in changing rankings

  2. Tim Knight says:

    Yes the trust joke went over my head. I still don’t get it.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      “Keep an eye on them” as if they are suspicious for some reason rather than they might be released

      Mike was just being a smart ass and playing with the words you used

    • Mike E. says:

      The way you said “keep your eyes on Emmanuel Sanders”. You say that about people you don’t trust, like watch out for them

  3. Mike E. says:

    Tim – I also don’t get why you want a shorter term deal with aging receivers as opposed to locking up a younger one for longer. I’m not sure either gives you more explosion, Sanders had 2 TD,s and an 11.8YPR, and Thomas 5 TD’s, and 11.4 YPR. Neither one is putting up elite YPR numbers, and maybe, hopefully Gase learned his lesson after signing Julius Thomas that just because they were good together once before, doesn’t guarantee you can do it again, especially years later

    • Tim Knight says:

      You do know coaches have their own guys right? I posted it because I heard DEN might move on from that. That’s all. It’s not my grand plan. LOL

      • Mike E. says:

        Oh I totally get that coaches have their own guys, and like I said, “his guy” Julius Thomas bombed here, so maybe he learned a little something from it.

      • D says:

        Also that was there guy, in that system, with that QB (manning) so how that relates to us, with Tanny doesnt seems to line up that closely IMO.

    • D says:

      I think there is a good possibility they move on from Thomas. He isnt as new QB friendly as Sanders. Sanders would be more of a guy we might expect to give us a replacement for Landry though, even though their games are pretty different and i think Landry represents more QB friendly traits than Sanders even. Thomas isnt someone we should be interested in, he is a diva and not a great fit for the Landry role, he would be someone we might would think about if looking to replace Parker, but not Landry. He also is more expensive than Landry is going to wind up being. I would say though if Denver does make Thomas or Sanders available or cuts either one, then its going to change the market for Landry which will help us gets him, but get him cheaper so we might wants to “keep an eye on them” just for those reasons.

  4. Rockphin says:

    letting the best players you drafted walk in FA and replacing them with stop-gap older players is not a winning recipe. No bueno.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Also better players but that hurts too much for some fans. LOL

    • D says:

      Sanders isn necessarily better, he has some receiving characteristics that are improvements and some that are not, so all in ll they balance out. I think Jarvis helps us, Tanny in particular, more than Sanders.

      • The Flying Pig says:

        I don’t think either of them are better at this stage of their careers

      • D says:

        McCain shut Sanders down when we played Denver. That was the match-up i was most worried about so year i feel that Sanders isnt quite as dynamic as he use to be, though i do give credit to McCain from improving from 2016 to 2017.

    I don’t like homework. Pass. 😉
    Part of it probably is you didnt read the assignment…. like the burden of the assignment was on those that believe that Landry wasnt worth re-signing…. lol

  6. D says:

    Also, yeah i bet if you checked most of the movement you saw Rock was those that were at Senior Bowl and put up a good week. They usually make a good jump afterwards. Allen is probably unlikely to fall outside the top 10 but maybe 50% of the time now, whereas before he was a B+ taken at 11. He probably would be an A+ now.

  7. The Flying Pig says:

    Bills center Eric Wood just retired

  8. Tim Knight says:

    Guys, Denver’s QB situation was worse than ours last year and Sanders was banged up. By the way 30 and 31 years old is not dead. LOL

    Instead of keep your eyes on them, I’ll say don’t be surprised if we target one of them if we let Landry walk. 🙂

  9. Tim Knight says:

    Mike, Julius Thomas doesn’t have anything to do with D. Thomas and Sanders. It’s just a convenient comparison to make it a negative. And again, I’m not saying this is the way to go, just that I think Gase would be interested in both players in the right scenario.

  10. Rockphin says:

    didnt read the assignment…. like the burden of the assignment was on those that believe that Landry wasnt worth re-signing…. lol

    yeah, you lost me at the POSSIBILITY of work. LOL 😉

  11. Rockphin says:

    D says:
    January 29, 2018 at 2:28 pm

    Also, yeah i bet if you checked most of the movement you saw Rock was those that were at Senior Bowl …….

    Couldn’t confirm that. I haven’t tuned in really yet so the Senior bowl, east west, etc arn’t on my radar. I just noticed that Billy Price G was consistently being taken at the end of the 1st when I was filling that need in the second with him before Goedert was another I noticed I kept missing on now. 😦

  12. Rockphin says:

    There is a dichotomy in my feelings towards a coach bringing in “his guys” from past teams. First if they work out an my team benefits that is great, but I still don’t like it because they aren’t “home grown” guys. It’s just my make up. I am not an NFL fan. I am a Miami Dolphins’ fan. My allegiance will always be to “my guys”

    But once they aren’t Dolphins anymore then they aren’t “my guys” and I don’t root for them anymore. It’s nice for Ajayi to be playing in the Big Game** next week but I don’t really care.

  13. Tim Knight says:

    D, our defense shut everyone down against Denver. LOL

  14. D,
    I don’t think you necessarily need to replace Landry. Any OC who is worth anything would be able to design an offense that would take advantage of the talent the team has on offense. If we were to either sign a FA TE and draft another or draft two TE’s or whatever it’s up to the OC and the HC to come up with an offense that utilizes the talent you’ve got on the team regardless of whether or not Landry is there.

    We don’t need to bring in a wr that can be targeted 150+ a season and average 100 catches a season. None of that matters. We need to take the talent that’s on the offense and utilize it properly. We need to have an offensive line that can do their job in the run game and we need players who can execute the plays like they are supposed to execute the plays.

    So, once again, I’m not concerned about losing Landry because I don’t consider him irreplaceable and the reason why I don’t is because it’s kind of a narrow minded way of thinking of things that you can’t win because you’re missing one player on offense. The offense lacked the talent it needed to get the job done so you add the talent where it’s needed, offensive line and tight end, and THAT would make all the difference in the world.

    If we spread the ball around more on offense it will go much further than targeting ONE guy 150+ a season.

    By the way, I have 2 picks to replace Landry. One MAY go in the first: Anthony MIller, Memphis. The 2nd is Darren Andrews of UCLA.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      We don’t know what those picks will do in the nfl

      But even if they succeed – we just had to spent another pick in a WR, instead of somewhere else

    • Tim Knight says:

      12 teams made the playoffs this year and none of them had Landry on their team.

      It reminds me of when it’s cut down time in the NFL, our fans are worried that other teams will all be plucking our talent because we’re so loaded. LOL

      • none of the teams with top 10 defenses had Suh either

      • If coaches are running around the building yelling “oh my God, we can’t afford to lose Jarvis” then it’s time to find a new coaching staff.

      • The Flying Pig says:

        New coaches who not be happy about letting our best players go before they arrive

      • You see, if it’s me as an OC I’m looking for my chance to show what I can do. Personally, I like what we’ve go in house at wr. I really don’t think we need to draft another. Where we are lacking is at TE and that’s the bigger problem.

        If we can get two TE’s on the roster who can help in the passing game and utilize our rb’s out of the backfield as pass catchers then we can probably be more successful on offense than we were last year. But, we need to have an offensive line. Personally, I think that’s the key on offense.

        Put it this way. We go into the season with nothing new on the offensive side of the ball and it’s not going to matter if we keep Landry.

  15. Tim Knight says:

    When all is the sudden, it’s Isiah Ford time. LOL

  16. Tim Knight says:

    Regardless of what happens with Landry, WR is the easiest position to find. It’s the most abundant of positions. Look at NE, they go through them and change them all the time and they never miss a beat. Why not follow the blueprint that works?

  17. naplesfan2010 says:

    So I am going to a wedding of some young people in Colorado. What if there is pot-smoking at a party at which I am in attendance and I breathe in a quantity of 2nd hand smoke large enough to register positive.
    Can i be held liable or guilty or whatever the legal term is by an employer here in Florida?
    Could that be grounds for termination here to do something that is legal there but not here?

    • pheloniusphish says:

      Yes. If any of my employees in Florida popped positive, I would have to terminate them regardless of where and how they inhaled. It is still illegal at the federal level.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Naples at the wedding.

    • The Flying Pig says:


      It’s illegal federally and in Most states. frankly probably depends on the language of the employment contract. If it was nuanced or limited enough to permit marijuana where it legal by state, then maybe

      But I would err on the side of caution and not do it if I was drug tested in FLA even if everyone knew I was coming back from Amsterdam

  18. pheloniusphish says:

    I don’t advocate not re-signing Landry, just not at $15M-$16M a year. $12M-$13M sounds about right, but if they had to go to $13.5M I would pull the trigger all day long. Landry’s production can be replaced – nature abhors a void – but it would be nice to keep our own.

  19. Tim Knight says:

    This is pretty ironic, I just looked at my FFL site WR rankings and Landry is tied for 12th with guess who?

  20. Out of everyone mentioned from DEN the only one I’d be interested in is Anderson as an addition to our rb’s. His guaranteed is done but he’s looking at $4.5M in base this yr and next. Only problem is what we’d need to give up in a trade.

    However, if DEN does decide to move on from him there’s a good chance MIA becomes the team of choice for him with two former coaches on the staff.

    • Tim Knight says:

      I still don’t get why they’d get rid of him. He had a good year and his contract is not a burden. But why would we want to take on his contract when Drake makes $910K?

      • me neither. I don’t like the idea of giving up anything other than our extra pick for him though; especially if we’re taking on that contract. in any case, the contract would only be about 3% of cap so that’s not really that bad.

        Drake showed some stuff last yr but it is still only a small sample. you don’t want to put all your eggs in one basket at rb. Having a guy who can split time with him in the backfield and still be effective running the ball as well as catching it would help the offense out quite a bit.

        I wouldn’t be against it.

      • Tim Knight says:

        I’d prefer to re-sign Williams and draft a back. Spend money on the OL if anywhere.

  21. Rockphin says:

    pheloniusphish, I think the team should resign Landry, at a fair going rate, and should try to make him feel wanted. I am a fan of his (as a Dolphin) and would be, (saying sad or upset would be too much) disappointed if they let him walk. That being said, I too am a douchebag and don’t count.

  22. Tim Knight says:

    I thought this was a good interview with a GM albeit a different sport. He sheds light on a lot of things that pertain to football as well.–trade-deadline/t-277437426/c-57107203

  23. Rockphin says:

    Too the question above about popping positive on a drug test in Florida after visiting an area where pot is legal “locally”, yes the company can fire you (or remand you to treatment, depending on the written policy) even though it is legal where you were. My company is based in Florida but works all over the country and they held a meeting to lay it all out to all the employees. I’m the only one in the company that is double secret exempt. 😉 When the memo went out that the company was going to institute the policy, I walked in and resigned immediately and told them why.

    They said, well you just wont be tested then….

  24. Mike E. says:


    Hard to say Julius Thomas has nothing to do with Emmanuel Sanders or Demaryius Thomas, he sure does. They’re all former players who succeeded with Gase in the past. I don’t mean that just because Julius Thomas didn’t play well here, the other guys won’t, but what they do have in common, is that they all played with a great QB together when Gase was in DEN, and they won’t be playing with that QB here in MIA. They’re numbers this year were underwhelming, Landry actually scored more TD’s than both of them together. Sanders is more like Stills but probably not as fast, and Thomas is a possession receiver, with a little bit of Parker’s 50/50 ability. He’s not an explosive player anymore IMO. We’ll see what happens, but I know I will be disappointed if that’s the way they go, with one of those guys instead of Landry.

    • Tim Knight says:

      What I meant is because J. Thomas didn’t pan out as well as we had hoped, it doesn’t mean other players follow suit just because they played on the same team in the past. Players are different people. Julio Jones will be 29 and A. Brown 30 next season. They’re not done.

      Whether we acquire one of them or not, let’s see their production next year. I don’t think either player is done and they both still have big playmaking ability. Their QB situation stunk as well. Ours was actually better with Cutler. LOL

  25. D says:

    Lou, thats a fine way to describe your strategy for replacing him, you feel like the offense can be modified to absorb the loss, and you can get as much improvement in the overall offense upgrading other places, rendering his contribution moot. I cant say i agree with it but that’s an explanation of what your strategy would be for moving past him at least.

    Im seeing the loss as much more of impact so i think we need a significant upgrade on offense to offset it. TE might, but i think our system also is pretty reliant on the slot receiver so i think having a good one is probably more important than just TE upgrade covers. We do need a TE upgrade though as it is an important piece to the overall system.

  26. Tim Knight says:

    Lou, I saw enough from Drake to make me feel confident he can be the feature back. Not saying 25-30 rushes every week, but I think he can handle 20+ total touches rushing and receiving. He is a threat to go the distance on many plays and he showed me more moves, stop and go quickness and power than I thought he had. He has good instincts and is a natural catching the football. He also showed the ability to take on a blitzer and block him. We might have found a real gem in Drake.

    • don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying that I don’t think he can’t be an asset in the offense. It’s just that he’s all we really got right now. if we sign Williams he’s an asset as a pass catcher more than a runner and I’ve always liked what Williams does for the offense.

      but, I wouldn’t be against bringing in a guy like Anderson if the price was right.

  27. Rockphin says:

    Man! I don’t like the way the draft keeps falling for me. I’ve done like 4 in a row that I just don’t like. I think Ireland could do better.

    Can i be held liable or guilty or whatever the legal term is by an employer here in Florida?
    Could that be grounds for termination here to do something that is legal there but not here?
    Ive discussed this with employees multiple times. You really dont need to consider the legality in your state or the legality in your country with regards to is it something you can do. You have to think to your status as an employee of a company and what their policy on drug use is. Its likely some companies will take THC off the list of substances they test for, and if so thats basically dealing it legal for you to use.

    Yes there may be fines if you are caught with it in your possession under the state laws, but how many people go around that daily, how many people really think of the legality of it that want to do it and that stops them, not many. How many though fear popping positive on a drug test at their company and thats the ultimate reason they dont use it, a lot. People are more governed by the policies and procedures of their business than they are by state laws, it sounds backwards but its the truth.

    Another point to make of it is while alcohol is legal, and companies do not prohibit the use of it, companies that test for drugs many times test for alcohol, so legal or not, if you have it in your system, ie under the influence of it, they will fire you just the same as if it was an illegal substance, because its against their rules just the same as the illegal stuff.

  29. D says:

    Its highly (yes that pun was intended) unlikely that you will pop positive off just second hand exposure. Now if you are sitting for an excessive amount of time in a bonged out car, you probably will. Also the amount you are exposed to wouldnt stay in your system long. You need to smoke it more than just a few times for it to really seep into your fatty tissue and remain in your system the month or so that it can if you are a habitual smoker. So likely even if in that situation you described, the positive reading wouldn’t be there a couple days later. You could always go to the gym and workout heavily for the next couple of days and drink a good amount of water if you are really worried about it.

    12 Teams made the playoffs and they had their best offensive player on the team when they did it. I really dont know what you are saying with that statement. Landry is to our offense what Amendola is to NE, they made the playoffs with Amendola, and actually the most recent game he really was a major reason they got to the next game. How can you be the guy tht says it takes contributions from everyone for a team to win games and then say losing the one that contributes the most isnt going to hurt us?

    • Tim Knight says:

      I was simply saying we’re not talking about a once in a lifetime player here. There are some great players in this league that aren’t on teams that win a lot. A lot of teams have some success without having “the” special player and I think the Dolphins can go on without Landry, the same without Ajayi. That’s all. The same can be said for Suh.

  31. D says:

    And don’t shoot heroin or eat Tide pods. LOL
    That tide pod challenge shit is fucking retarded. There is a new one now too. The new thing is for people to walk up to strangers and pull a gun and put it in their face to see what kind of reaction they will have and if they will pull a gun back. Its kind of reminiscent of the thing that was happening a few years back with the challenge to walk up to a complete stranger and see if you can knock them out with one cold-cock punch. I really dont know where our fucking society is going these days, i do know that its not good. Its looking more nd more like we have finally made it to the wold of Idiocracy, though that was expected to be quite a few more years down the road.

    • D says:

      Ok so the challenge isnt to do it to a stranger, both people are apparently involved but its meant to freak the fuck out of people because you do it in a very public place. Still very fucking stupid and already one kid is dad from it when the one of them had their gun go off accidentally.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Violent video games has a lot to do with it IMO. The information overload as well desensitizes young people more than ever. There are more rebels and risk takers than ever before. When I was young, the entire world was still so out of my range. Not anymore. We can find out what’s going on everywhere with a simple task.

    Don’t worry, the draft is not going to go the way those simulator’s have it anyway. LOL

    LOL No doubt.

    I quit. It was getting frustrating watching they guys I was going to pick come off the board the pick or two ahead of me! Grrrrrrr.

    It’s only January and I already don’t like this draft. 🙂

    You won’t get second hand smoke no matter how high everyone might be. They’re using vape’s and edibles nowadays. Relax, try some gummies!

  34. D says:

    That pull the gun thing down here is going to get casual observers to unload on these dumb asses. A lot of people down here have concealed carry permits. I dont want to know what kinda issues its going to cause in Texas, that shit is going to be deadly.

  35. D says:

    Charlie Campbell from Walter football has us taking:
    R1P11 Minkah Fitzpatrick FS/CB Alabama
    R2P42 Hayden Hurst TE South Carolina
    R3P73 Royce Freeman RB Oregon

    as out first 3 picks. Id be pretty happy with that though i would kind of like to have seen a QB by then

  36. D says:

    Some of those crazy fuckers are dropping drops in their eyes to get it in their system faster and stronger. These kids are on a level of crazy that’s almost hard to fathom.

      They turkey baser alcohol up their ass, they plug pills, they snort almost anything they can crush up and get up their noses. Im not as ancient as you some of you but for fucks sake, it use to be smoke it, snort it, swallow it, or inject it. Now its inject it….where? Swallow it…. through which end? Snort it….liquid or powder? Smoke it….and what flavor do you want that in? WTF lol.

  40. Ken says:

    The idea of either Sanders or Thomas as a replacement for Landry makes Hulk angry 😡

  41. D says:

    Emmanuel Sanders really doesn’t have a lot of a connection with Gase. Gase and he were only on the team together in Denver for 1 year.

  42. mf13ss says:

    Can anybody tell me why Rutgers’ DE Kemoko Turay is currently projected to go on day 2 of the Draft? He may have 4.67 speed, but his stats suck, his production sucks, his tape sucks, and he can’t even generate a highlight reel.

    Half the time, he just stands there after the snap trying to figure out what’s going on. He’s often the last to the ball (if he even gets there), QBs run past him, and he can’t shed a block.

    • D says:

      Sometimes the draft rankings we have are kinda bogus. Sometimes though its because as a physical specimen its hard to get that combination of untrainable things in a person so raw as they might be, there is just too much potential there to pass on. Josh Allen right now is probably the top of that mound, his ceiling is just so astronomically high compared to the rest of tese QB’s that people are tempted to take him over a better statistics guy just because they are afraid they are passing Dan Marino to take Todd Blackledge.

  43. Tim Knight says:

    Ken, Landry has never had a season as good as D. Thomas or Sanders. Just saying.

    • Mike E. says:

      He never had Peyton Manning as his QB either. Just saying

    • Ken says:

      They are declining talents. Landry is still ascending.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      Its not like Landry broke an NFL record for receptions in his first 5 seasons or anything

      Those two guys are on the wrong side of 30 – we don’t get the benefit of their performances with Peyton Manning years ago, we get 2018 receivers with this best years behind them who put up eye catching stats in there years with the best QB of all time – its an obvious downgrade to save a nominal amount of cap room

      Sorry you don’t let your guys go to chase other vets in free agency – that doesn’t make sense. You are always going to spend a lot in free agency

  44. D says:

    Turnay also had a pretty good Senior Bowl so i think he was probably a 3-4th round guy to start with and i think he is climbing. To be honest i really havent looked very hard at him but 6’5, 255, 4.67 speed, that’s those things ya cant teach kinda standing out.

  45. D says:

    Jarvis’ rookie year was better than Sanders last year. Jarvis’ second year was better than any of Sanders years in Denver aside from 1. Jarvis’ 3rd year was better than any of Sanders years in Denver except the 1 and overall Jarvis’ last 4 years compared to the 4 years Sanders has been in Denver, Sanders only has an 84 yard advantage over those 4 years and they are dead even on TD receptions….

  46. D says:

    The year Sanders got the 1404 yards and 9 TD’s was Peyton Manning’ss 2nd best statistical year of his career.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      What do you think Landry would have done with Manning as his QB?

      How about Stills who I think compares favorably to sanders

    • D says:

      Also, Sanders contract is 11mil per average, which is just 2 mil off what we are suggesting Landry will get that is considered too much. He signed that contract 2 years ago in a market where there was more competition at WR than there is this coming year. Also, in 2019, if we were to pick him up, his cap number is almost 13mil…..

    LOL @ you guys so emotional about Landry. All defense systems are up. LOL

    Here’s the thing for me. I don’t care what the guy’s name is or his number, if the Dolphins are good I’m rooting for those guys. I’m rooting for someone else to come along that wears #42 so I can replace the name Clay with it and wear it again that it makes sense. 🙂

    • D says:

      Im just giving a rebuttal to the argument made, no emotions here, its just sometimes when quick glance at things they seem to really show one thing, where a deeper investigation shows something much different. When i looked, i saw that it actually made Landry’s good traits stand out even more, because Sanders is a receiver i have always liked, and Landry is a lot closer to him than i initially thought as well.

      • D says:

        They are different receivers, but they both have been getting it done and their 4 year averages show they have been helping out their teams pretty equally. I guess its someone else’s fault we dont have a Superbowl, because Denver got one with Sanders.

    • Ken says:

      I want to keep Landry but even if we never had Landry I would not want us to sign Sanders and Thomas at this stage of their careers

      • Tim Knight says:

        For a year or two as you develop younger WRs? They can still play. Wake is going to be 36 and he had 10.5 sacks and lead the team this season. Antonio Brown will be 30. Is he done?

        This isn’t a crusade to replace Landry. It’s what if we don’t re-sign him. The Dolphins go on. You look for good players.

  48. Tim Knight says:

    D, did you see my earlier post. Just to show I’m fair and balanced. 🙂

    This is pretty ironic, I just looked at my FFL site WR rankings and Landry is tied for 12th with guess who?
    You can follow the thread from there. LOL

    Tim, why do you hate Landry so much?

    Btw Tim it isn’t emotional yet but let him walk and I’m going ape shit

    I think that if we hear of a contract restructure taking place, there’s a pretty good chance that we’re bringing Jarvis back… especially if it’s Suh who restructures. However, I don’t think we’re going to hear of a restructure prior to announcing the re-signing of Jarvis: that would give the Jarvis camp more ammo to ask for outrageous $$$.

    I guess what I’m saying is, I’m listening closely for rumors of a restructure(s) forthcoming. And to that end, I’ve not heard a peep.

    That’s all I’ve got regarding Jarvis and this waiting game.

  52. Tim Knight says:

    Son, if we went 12-4 without Landry how would you feel a year from now?

    If we Re-sign Landry
    I’m calling it now
    Tim can’t buy his jersey!

    Actually I shouldn’t either…

  55. The Flying Pig says:

  56. I want zero retreads coming to this team unless it’s in a backup role capacity. Larsen, IMO, should have been a guy who gave us depth at G and C at best and that’s it. Same thing with a guy like Bushrod. So as far as these wr’s from DEN are concerned I say pass.

  57. Serious question. We sign a FA o-lineman and draft one. The offense stays the same. Bubble screens and what not. Do we score more points and win more games even if we keep Landry? I know we signed a new OC but this is a hypothetical.

    • ElephantRider says:

      Penalties killed the offense too. If the OL pan out and penalties go down I say yes.
      I know you don’t want to hear this, but RT17 comes back too. All that together should vastly improve the offense. RT17 is much more mobile than the QBs were last year and if…..I said if….. he starts off the way he was playing before injury, they score lots more.

      • Sorry but Cutler moves around in the pocket and avoids pressure better than Tannehill. Plus he gets rid of the ball instead of taking the sack.

      • Mike E. says:

        I agree with the pocket Lou, but Tannehill moves and throws much better on the run than Cutler does, plus, Tannehill can run well in the open field, at least before the injury.

  58. Mike E. says:

    Just heard this morning that Blake Bortles had wrist surgery, and if he’s injured at the start of the NFL season, which I believe is February 6th, he’s guaranteed his $19M salary for this season.

    In other words, it’s pretty likely JAX will have Blake Bortles

    • son of a son of a shula says:

      The league year starts in March. Blake is in the same situation as Ju’wan James where they already took the fifth year option but have one last shot to get out of it if they choose to.

      • Mike E. says:

        On NFL radio this morning, they said if he’s injured, and he must be since he just had wrist surgery, they can’t get out of it. I guess it would be the same w/Ja’Wuan James

  59. ElephantRider says:

    Yeah. Cutler was shit throwing on the run. His pocket presence was sometimes good, which it should be with his experience, but a lot was just running back and throwing off back foot. He was no way a threat to run…..or catch a pass. Lol

  60. Mike E. says:

    Son – waivers begin Feb 5th, so I guess that’s the start of the league year.
