No rumors, lips are zipped in Davie FLA

The NFL draft is just 15 days away, and our beat writers here, you know them well, Omar Kelly, Armando Salguero, Adam Beasley etc. have been silent. Usually at this time there are names floating around that we are especially interested in, but not this year. I like it. Keeps us all guessing, as it should be. Perhaps Grier and Co. are also running a tight ship, which should also be commended.

I’m still completely unsure where we’re going at #13, or if we even stay at #13, or move up, or move back. I do think all of the above are possible depending on what happens in front of us, if we have enough interest in a certain player to make a move up, or if we’re just staying true to our board ready to select whomever we think is the best fit for our team. Will the Cards really take Kyler Murray at #1? If they don’t, does he fall? Is Dwayne Haskins really set for a fall as some prognosticators are saying? If he does, do we gladly stop his fall, or do we continue his slide and take a DE, DT or OL?

Is there a QB in this draft that we have a strong interest in? It could be Will Grier, who’s a projected 2nd or 3rd pick. It could be Tyree Jackson, who could go anywhere from the 3rd RD or later. Heck, maybe it’s Gardner Minshew or Easton Stick. No one in MIA really seems to have an idea, which is pretty surprising.

We know we need DL help, especially at DE. Sack production from our current crop of defensive ends in the NFL is abysmal. Yes, Jayrone Elliott led the AAF with 7 sacks, but in the NFL in 3 seasons with the Green Bay Packers he had only 4 sacks total. In other words, temper your enthusiasm. There could be a few very nice prospects who may make it to #13, such as DE’s Montez Sweat, Clelin Ferrell and Rashan Gary. We might have a choice of DT’s such as Ed Oliver and Christian Wilkins. On the OL side we may have a chance at Jawaan Taylor of Jonah Williams. Any one of these players would help our team going forward.

So let’s all hope for the best for our draft this year, but also understand that no draft will sate the majority of Dolphins fans, because we all have different ideas of how it should be done. Looking forward to April 25 to see who our 1st pick is!

    There goes your Wilson dreams!

    • Mike E. says:

      I honestly would have been shocked if they let him go. I have always thought the reports were wrong. Funny thing is Mike Francesa who thinks he knows everything was asked yesterday about Russell Wilson before he was re-signed, and he said “I know they want to get rid of him, they definitely want to get rid of him, but the compensation will be very high” WRONG!!!

  2. ocalarob says:

    i never thought Seattle would cave to Wilsons deadline. they could have just franchised him next year.

  3. wyoming85 says:

    It almost looked like Seattle was setting up for a draft day trade!

  4. wyoming85 says:

    It still pisses me off we have to get an OT this year AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. wyoming85 says:

    So I watched the Alabama Oklahoma game last night.

    You can have Murry! He should have been intercepted at least 3 times on drops!

    Tua made a better impression!

    Buggs moved up in my opinion!

    Patrick Sutain JR is not his dad!

    • D says:

      Buggs to me has always been a 2nd round guy. I knew when some of the sites were projecting him later it was going to turn around. Watch almost any game and you will see impact plays from him, and a lot of attention put towards him that opened up a lot of plays for other players to make.

    • D says:

      Tua had a stretch where he wasnt all that good and made a good bit of mistakes, partially because he was injured and playing through it, or at least thats my assessment, but i dont sit and let a QB pass us, just because he looks good. H could stay, he could get injured, there is too many variables when considering an entire college season.

      Im not a fan of Murray, i think unlike Baker, he is more of a limited player that the offense and lack of defenses in the big 12, brought out some of the magic in him. He is talented, and he will work in the NFL in the right system, but i also dont want a player dictating the system we run as much as i want the player to fit our system. If tweaks need to be made to make it a better fit, thats one thing, but having to completely build the system for one person, im just not a fan of that.

  7. Mike E. says:

    NFL schedules come out tomorrow! Yay!

    • Mike E. says:

      In other words, tomorrow starts deliberations on the 2019 Fest date!

      • stangerx says:

        Actually not my favorite part of the process.. You guys never seem to get that the worse the opposing team the better the seats/lower the price…. until the seats have to be paid for and sat in of course. 🙂

      • Mike E. says:

        Ahh, we go to one game, let’s make it a good one, and of course fit available dates for the majority of folks to attend. That’s not easy

      • D says:

        You dont know who the worst teams will be until they start losing.

      • stangerx says:

        Mike E — seems in a rebuild year picking the worst possible opponent would also be most likely to provide a good game.

  8. stangerx says:

    “Agent Mark Rodgers told me his job was to make sure Wilson stayed in Seattle, with the best deal possible” — and hence all the Wilson trade rumors. That $35 mil per year probably made Rosen’s trade value and the top QBs draft stock go up though. Nothing like QB talent on a cheap contract.

    • D says:

      Thats ridiculous money i get keeping him in Seattle, but they will regret that contract before too long.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      I feel like it was pretty obvious he was going to stay in Seattle despite the rumors

      • D says:

        I think it was just because the way the negotiations went own. He kind of strng armed the conversation, which made people think there was a rift, which it wasnt it was just a negotiation strategy that obviously paid off.

  9. Mike E. says:

    D – It’s only ridiculous because there’s a salary cap.

  10. Mike E. says:

    Piggi – You listen to Francesa?

  11. Mike E. says:

    D – He (Stanger) means by ticket price. Those are determined when the schedule comes out.

    • D says:

      Oh, because you are buying a bock of tickets. I haven never had to do that, only a couple, and those actually can get cheaper the longer you wait due to the performance of the teams as the season goes on.

    Mike E — seems in a rebuild year picking the worst possible opponent would also be most likely to provide a good game.
    My thought is a rebuild year people are going just to enjoy the game or to see the new system, and less likely about the opponent. Id guess later int he year games would probably be less crowded and cheaper.

    • stangerx says:

      For sure end of the season games can be real cheap, but Fest window is late Sept through whatever 2 weeks before Thanksgiving is. That’s become clear over the years. Hope you can make.

  13. stangerx says:

    We’ll see which teams have games in the Fest Zone, but a big part of it is how they travel rather than just how good they are on the field.

    Here’s our home game: Buffalo Bills, New England Patriots, New York Jets, Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals, Los Angeles Chargers, Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Redskins.

    Pats and Jets are always real tough (too many transplanted North East folks and travel downs). On my wish list are Bills, Bengals and Chargers.

  17. D says:

    Man i just read an article that really kinda of pisses me off. It basically shows you how cocked up our political system has become. The article was about “smart gun” technology and how its advancement ha been completely shut down by both sides of the political spectrum.

    So if you have a phone now you know about the way you can unlock it with different technologies, but a common way is fingerprint authentication. Since the mid 90’s they have been suggesting to do this with firearms so that the weapon itself can only be fired by the person that its biometrically assigned to. They have also come up with other ideas for use with RFID technology, meaning you have to have an item (in some cases a watch or bracelet) where the RFID transmitter is embedded that has to be within 15 inches of the gun so that it unlocks to be fired.

    Conservative legislators backed by the NRA have opposed it because the technologies can fail and therefore leave the gun owner vulnerable in the case of home invasion, etc. Now of course this is a unlikely event and a theoretical and unlikely failure to that unlikely event. So opposition seems to me to be just a stone wall to any sort of gun restriction.

    Thats not whats truly troubling, though. More recently, the democrats are opposing the advancement of the technology since any advancement in the technology is seen as an advancement of guns, of which they are opposed. So now, companies are either having to completely bear the burnt of the development of a safer gun technology, one that would ultimately render gun theft useless, because of a political pissing contest.

    Now this wouldn’t have stopped Parkland, but it could have Sandy Hook (as he used his parents weapons), and in general i cant see too many legitimate arguments against it, but skipping that discussion, i just find it completely ridiculous that we are so divided by politics (well and other factors) that we are literally letting good things, good ideas, fall to the way side. This technology has been, and was attempted to be introduced in the mid 90’s and yet over 20 years later it still isnt voluntarily available.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Yeah political pissing matches put a halt on lots of sensible ideas. It’s very annoying.

    • wyoming85 says:

      Yet there are all sorts of Bio-metric safes and other locking devices that use electronic devices.
      That’s interesting though?
      I’d have to think about it before I’d buy one?

    That’s not exactly a holdout…… but maybe a sign Reshad would like a trade.
    I read somewhere a rumor that the 49’er might do a player trade for Solomon Fisher, and one of the suggestions was it would be to us for Jones. Maybe they would be willing to trade a pick or at least swap picks with us, which would be a significant move up in whatever round they swapped. Maybe Jones and swap of 2nds and we could grab a blue chipper that fell some.

      Pretty awesome that he was on Paul McCartney’s album cover, for instance!

      • Tim Knight says:

        I haven’t looked at the album cover for Paul McCartney and Wings “Band on the Run” in a long time so I don’t even remember if I knew back in the day who was on the cover including Christopher Lee? But I found it interesting that it wasn’t just the band after further review.

  31. D says:

    The number one over all pick this year feels very much like a smokescreen, as much this year as it has any year previously. Im not convinced its Murray. Im leaning a little more towards a trade. I think Klingsbury and the rumored offense he is supposedly going to run makes a ton of sense to take Murray to run it, but i dunno. It just seems its been too cut n dry certain that its going to be Murray for too long for it to actually turn out that way.

  34. Rockphin says:

    So now, companies are either having to completely bear the burnt of the development of a safer gun technology, one that would ultimately render gun theft useless, because of a political pissing contest.

    Surely this is not your objection. This is capitalism all companies should have to bear the brunt of research and development for their products otherwise it is corporate welfare or corporate socialism. If a company makes a profit on a product they should bear the cost of research and development.

    • pheloniusphish says:

      I agree unless the technology is something required by the government that is not inherently native to the product.

      • pheloniusphish says:

        In govie lingo, that is called an unfounded mandate.

      • Rockphin says:

        Even then

        US government mandated seatbelts and airbags
        The car companies how do you spend the money on design
        That’s the way it should be
        By the way that is a gun control argument I have never heard anyone argue
        All cars must have seatbelts
        All passengers must wear seatbelts
        Driving isn’t even a right
        Possession of guns is a right
        But god forbid it be legislated

      • pheloniusphish says:

        Seatbelts and airbags did not fundamentally change how a car works. If you change guns in a manner that they no longer work as intended, you are by default restricting the right to bear arms.

      • The Flying Pig says:

        I’m guessing the average gun consumer would love it if their stolen gun became inoperable until returned to them

        What does inherently native to the product mean?

    • stangerx says:

      Rock — did some law pass that I missed or did someone just put out a bill that won’t pass?

  35. pheloniusphish says:

    And the technology must exist. Seatbelts an airbags existed before the government required them. Air bags were granted a patent in 1953.

  36. pheloniusphish says:

    Finally, gun possession is regulated. Heavily at both the federal and state levels.

  37. pheloniusphish says:

    Pigs – Guns are mechanical constructs. Pretty simple ones at that. Biometrics are electronics. Fairly complicated. Guns are not designed for electronic parts. Biometrics would change the nature and function of the construct. A mechanical safety is inherently native. Not electronics. Be a damn cyborg.

If a company makes a profit on a product they should bear the cost of research and development.
    Guns work as intended right now, if an effort is made to make them safer, then its my opinion that the government should back that and offer incentives to that company for the development of technologies that achieve that. Even in your car example, the government does regulate and incentivize safety standards for the car manufacturers. Its not a selling feature to add that technology.

    Also to me its a point put up or shut up, if the government is actually concerned with gun safety, it is in their best interest to get behind the development of things that make them safer, otherwise they are just a bunch of fat fuck politicians who sit around bitching that their getting rained on because no one will open the umbrella and hold it over them.

      • The Flying Pig says:

        Let’s be real about it

        Technology is always a mess and has plenty of flaws
        Sometimes it makes things worse

        It might do very little at the end of the day to address mass shootings or shootings by criminals

        But its interesting

        FWIW the NRA’s official position is let the market control, they haven’t been real hostile about it but I’ve read that they have an agenda to stop “smart guns”

        Letting the market control might get you past the hiccups of new technology

        But I suspect there are valid 2nd amendment arguments against the affect on technology in creating a database from the technology or being able to shut down the guns bc of the technology with other tech

      • The Flying Pig says:

        Wrong spot

  51. pheloniusphish says:

    The fingerprint gun is interesting, but we’ll see how practical it is. Reliability will be the big test. My experience with biometrics is probably a little more extensive than most since they have been trying to get them into airports for years. The problem we often ran into was dirt and grime. The readers didn’t respond well to it. Since guns are dirty (cabin, powder residue, oil)in and of them selves, never mind the environment that they are used in, I wonder how the reader will do under use. Then there is recoil. Electronics are generally sensitive to impacts and water.

    • stangerx says:

      Think that just a “what if.” Would far prefer closing the gun show loop hole and universal background checks. Add in stiffening crimes for people with guns that shouldn’t have them. Long ago gave up on trying to take any of them away.

    Pigs – I agree with your wrong spot post. I find the technology very interesting and I’m not adverse to developing it. But like you, I see potential constitutional issues if we’re made the law of the land.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      It’s possible that the technology develops know different than opening a door and then the gun owner has all the power/control/info

      but if information is stored electronically
      or if you can shut down the gun (particularly if the gov’t can shut down the gun) with another device

      then the arguments we’ve been having for the last 100 years are the same arguments
      there is just a tech/sci-fi edge to it

  55. Mike E. says:

    I think all guns should have Amazon Alexa. “Alexa, turn on gun”. “Alexa, load chamber”

  56. pheloniusphish says:

    Stanger – The gun show loophole is largely a myth. All FFL holders (gun dealers) must run background checks. There are few if any gun shows that allow anyone but FFL holders to sell guns at their event. What you are really talking about is private sales. That is much more problematic in many ways.

    • stangerx says:

      Am sure you are right on that and private sales are more about the issue. Seems should be no problem to require the check though even if some outside service does it for a fee. Car title transfers have to go through DMV.

    I didn’t get into the specifics of it, man. When did I do that?

    I said that President Trump signed into law (via executive order) a ban on bump stocks. He didn’t care what the NRA had to say (that he is taking away #2 rights), nor did he care about the other side of the aisle (saying he didn’t go far enough).

    As such, EVERYBODY is pizzed off at him.

    I didn’t mean my comment to you to be responded to in such a way. I’m just sayin’, man. And yes, I’m MOST familiar with what happened, leading up to President Trump’s decision… and we still don’t know what happened in that tragic Vegas shooting. SMH

    • stangerx says:

      Was saying I wasn’t going to go into the specifics and then explained the general point was going for was that took a while was all was really going at. Sorry if that was unclear. And seems if everybody is unhappy with Trump then that just reinforces. And also sorry if I replied in a way you did not intend.

    Trump banning bump stocks is one of the things I love about President Donald Trump.
    I am proud of him doing something about gun massacres.

    Now if we can just get Elon Musk to stop selling flame throwers …

    Lightning out in 4. Most complete and unlikely collapse I can recall ever seeing in the NHL.

    Amazon has already said they are recording your conversations. You don’t want to know what I get ads on now!

  68. naplesfan2010 says:

    Amazon’s voice-controlled Alexa products are considered “always-on” devices — but that doesn’t mean they record customers’ conversations. The devices constantly listen for a user to say a “wake word,” which triggers Alexa to begin recording voice data and respond to commands.

    1984, my favorite book (in some ways) showed the insidious effect of audio snooping.

    Was it Fahrenheit 451 that predicted 2-way TV programmed to give citizens what they want?

    And then there’s Harrison Bergeron, one of my all time favorites for showing government dominance.

    Already when I am on various web pages, the sidebars are littered with clickable ads for Corvettes, horticultural supplies, music concerts, and Dolphins paraphernalia, 4 of my main interests., Bluestone Perennials, ticketmaster, Hard Rock stadium soccer, etc.

    We don’t have any “Alexa “ type devices , yet we can have a conversation about let’s say Jamaica.. without doing any searches or anything, within 24?hours we have ads on our browsers/ websites. Has happened more than a few times .. very creepy

      an oral comvo or online?

      If it is real words,
      that is scary Toba

    • Tim Knight says:

      Yes, if you searched chiffon robes and apple martinis it will show up as ads on social media. With Alexa, if you say in privacy to yourself I want to fuck my neighbor, that gets recorded too.

      That’s a major privacy issue.

    BACK ON THE BOARD AFTER LONG absence. Me and Mrs. OD worked a convention in Georgia and also spent time in Tennessee visiting youngest daughter (and her husband) plus our oldest grand daughter (and her husband) plus their 3 daughters who are also 3 of our 6 great grand kids!! Glad to report all are doing well and are FULL OF ENERGY!! It was an amazing trip!!
    Missed almost all of Lightning’s first 3 games vs. the Blue Jackets. But I DID watch tonight’s 4th and final game of this truly shocking playoff series. My observations: BOLTS REALLY MISSED injured Norris Trophy winning defenseman Victor Hedman, who got a serious concussion just before the playoffs. A couple more defense men were banged-up but had to play, and they did NOT play well. Tampa Bay will certainly looking for help there in the off season. Bolts had NOT lost 3 straight games during the entire 82 game regular season yet, this time, lost 4 STRAIGHT! Hats off to the Blue Jackets, who won their first playoff series EVER. They certainly benefited from Head Coach John Tortorella’s expert coaching. Every key move “Torts” made seemed to work. In particular, “Torts” adjustments caused Tampa Bay’s power play to go O for their first 5, while the Jackets scored on 6 of their first 10 power plays. Tortorella surely will enjoy this blanking of the franchise he guided to a Stanley Cup Championship in 2004 before the Lightning later fired him a few years later. He is still one of the best coaches in the NHL.
    SHIT happens in the NHL Playoffs. Almost every year, some lower rated team shocks a heavy favorite. But this will rank right up there as the most unexpected sweep in the history of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. And speaking of “unexpected,” how many picked the Islanders to SWEEP the Pittsburgh Penguins? Last year Barry Trotz won the Cup for an ungrateful Washington Capitals owner (who let Trotz escape to the mediocre Islanders franchise). Think Barry Trotz will have his boys “UP” if they end up playing the Capitals in a subsequent round? BET YER ASS he will!
    BY THE WAY. There’s NO TRUTH to the rumor that Steve Ross secretly bought the Lightning just a couple of days before they began their series with COLUMBUS!!

    • manitobafinfan says:

      Lol at Ross buying Lightning…

      Was a helluva shock them being swept.. was kinda hoping for a repeat of 2004 between them and Calgary , the IT WAS IN chants would have been insanely loud ..

      Game 4 Blues and Jets a very good game , back and forth lots of offence.. gonna be a greasy one that wins it as both goalies are playing their EH game 😊

    And that f#%^ing Yelich has 8 HRs in 6 games against the Cards this year, smh.

    Woot woot !!!!! Wow what a great game

    Demaryius Thomas to the Cheats…..meh, not worried

  87. CavalierKong says:

    Gotta like your chances moving forward, Toba.

  88. Mike E. says:

    Thomas is coming off a torn achilles. He didn’t do too much for the Texans. They just wanted a solid option if teams tried to shut down Hopkins, and he didn’t really provide that.

  89. ocalarob says:

    Rashad Jones missed voluntary practice the NFL allows for teams with new coaches. i guess he figures he’s already been paid.

  90. steveccnv says:

    Lol at Trump saying he’s going to send the illegals to sanctuary cities. Obviously he can’t do it, he’s just playing them, he wants their reactions, so he can use it on the campaign trail. The stupid libtards have taken it hook, line and sinker.

    • D says:

      Democrats in my opinion are falling to their own tactics. Passive Aggressive is how they always brought the cold asshole persona out of the Republicans but now they are so aggressive….. I’m sorry they are choosing the term progressive….. They can’t help but show themselves to be at least equally as close minded of assholes as the Republicans always looked.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      Nyc has been a sanctuary city for decades

      The whole point of being a sanctuary city is to invite undocumented people and allow them to contribute to the city

      Trumps own lawyer, Guiliani, pushed to make nyc a sanctuary city when he was mayor

      The faux rhetoric that sanctuary cities are upset about inviting undocumented people is typical Trump bullshit

      What we don’t want is prisons for undocumented people
      In nyc we have a ton of legislation that protects undocumented people from workplace discrimination, housing discrimination and a host of other regulations

      Nyc is smart enough to understand that we thrive from it
      Unfortunately most of the country is not

      It’s not that we don’t want them there – we do
      It’s that we don’t want the facilities that detain them here

      It’s cute that you think Trump is playing people with theatrics of something he can’t legally do

      The reality is he is playing all of you if he promises something he can never do, you guys just create these ridiculous justifications like this one, that he was just trying to get a reaction out of the liberals or that its okay bc it’s furthers his agenda –

      It’s still a lie no matter what the reason is

      Anyone who thinks a liar is just lying to some people is probably just the last one to realize they have been lied to as well

      • steveccnv says:

        I love how all these dems call him a liar, yet they’re the biggest liars of them all. On the view they had Brent Baier on and the first question asked was why does Trump lie so much?

        He lies, because it’s the only way to fight the opposition lies, it’s all about perception. He at least bases his lies on truth, then exaggerates it.

        When Obama’s camp put out all the lies about Romney, before the general election, and Romney did nothing…how’d that work out?

      • steveccnv says:

        It’s all a big FN game, and lies are part of politics, so being lied to by politicians has no bearing on me at all. You on the other hand seem to promote that you haven’t been lied to by the dems.

      • The Flying Pig says:

        You just admitted he was lying when he pushed for a policy he could not do

        You admitted it a second time in your second paragraph

        You justified it a 3rd time when you mentioned Romney

        It’s not Democrats, the media or liberals erroneously calling him a liar. It’s everyone identifying him as a liar and some people being okay with it because _______

        That’s fine, I can appreciate that perspective

        But when you invite a snake into your home, don’t be surprised when you get bit

        Undocumented people are easy targets bc they have such fee rights and are so desperate

        Emotionally reactionary liberals are pretty easy targets too (I think we can admit that)

        But Policy or public statements or whatever to get reactions out of people (in this case to own the libs) is no way to run a country

        Every American should be communicating with one another. Our leader should say this is where we are going – everyone get on board. That’s how we will be the best country – not making stuff up for theatrics and reactions

        I don’t think your statements are factually wrong
        I think you are spot on on what Trumps intent is
        But I disagree with the ideology
        It’s an admission that he is a liar when you say “he said this bc ____ knowing he would not do it”

        That’s not leadership IMO

        We can be so much better than where Trump is taking is us

      • The Flying Pig says:


        I met you in person

        Not trying to bust your chops on this bc I like you

        But I always respond to these posts (as you know by now) with my perspective

        So please don’t take my tone as disrespectful – I respect you and your point of view

        But I really really disagree with you on this topic
        Particularly in undocumented people
        I have personal relationships with them
        I’ve volunteered with them going back to law school and I am pursuing pro bono work (to the extent I make time) on their behalf – so it’s obviously something I care about

        End of the day – I’m glad to see you post here, even when it’s pro-Trump

      • steveccnv says:

        You seem to believe they all dont lie, and the talk about how a president should run the country is typical. I didnt hear any of that when Obama was president. If you want to keep your doctor…

  91. D says:

    Oh and I think Thomas is just another in a long line of formerly elite platers they have rented to give them an advantage. I think he probably has a good year for them unfortunately and then gets cut and disappears, especially if they get a Superbowl out of it again.

  92. stangerx says:

    I am so against trading it away, but our 2020 first pick is one valuable trading piece. Normal rule is discount a round for the next year, but bet you our pick might bring something like #18 this year if wanted to trade it.

    • steveccnv says:

      Forget about trading away our 2020 1st, if it happens this FO is the most incompetent in the history of the league, unless they get compensation as if the pick is the first pick in the draft.

      • stangerx says:

        Just talking about what it’s value might be and pointing out that more than a normal one. But yeah if they decided to trade up that would come into play.
