I’m just thrilled to be able to get stymie in a headline, even if we’re on the wrong side of it. It was almost destiny guys and girls, you could almost feel that Eli was supposed to get a good game in what most likely was his final game in front of his home crowd at Met Life Stadium in New Jersey. A little feel good moment for the QB is who in the process of being ousted by this year’s #6 pick, QB Daniel Jones. The future of the Giants is #8 (Daniel Jones), but for a day, all was copacetic in northern Jersey and the fans got a nice memory of Eli playing well enough to win. Let’s face it, Eli’s record with the Jints the last 3 years is 9-26. If this seems like a Giants article, my apologies. Not gonna deny the fact that this game was not about our team, and I’m not insinuating that it was fixed or preordained or anything, but it sure did follow the story line of Eli going out on top.
On our side, Ryan Fitzpatrick is such a gamer it’s impossible not to admire and respect his efforts each and every week. On a positive note, Ryan Fitzpatrick was NOT the leading rusher this week. We actually very quietly had some success rushing and Laird and Gaskin combined for 88 yards rushing, Laird had 46 yards on 12 carries and Gaskin averaged nearly five yards a pop with 43 yards on 9 carries. DeVante Parker added 2 more TD’s coming off his concussion last week and continues to be a very bright spot and a beacon of hope for the future of this team.
While I want to see Josh Rosen play, at this point I think if I were Brian Flores it would be very difficult to tell Fitzpatrick to grab some pine the way he has played. He has been literally sacrificing his body every game for real, the anti Jay Cutler if you will. Not only that, but Fitzpatrick is playing pretty well, certainly well enough for the team to win. Our defense seemed to be willing to cooperate with the happy send off this week, but I think they will be back this week. A few more of our youngins have gone on IR, DB Ken Webster and Ken Crawley. Each and every week it’s a shuffle in the defensive backfield.
It’s an odd time, you want to see the team play well but you’re also cognizant of the fact that a loss while disappointing may put us in a position to get a player we covet. In the past I would always prefer the loss to get the player I want but I think our team isn’t going to be a team of susperstars, but rather a team of guys who can certain things well and are willing to do what they need to do as well learn various things to help the team. In other words, if we can’t get Chase Young, don’t sweat it. We’re going to get selfless players here, and I think we’ll be a better team for it.
Sieler has made some plays today. I dont even know who the heck he is lol
I am getting a 92 jersey
Its going to be another guys number by next week…lol
Sieler again. The man is a beast lol
It’s hilarious to be like “who are these guys” in the last couple weeks of the season
I still don’t know who is in our secondary
Wash and NY tied up
That will fuck us
If they tie it won’t
Like the way they are contesting these plays at the end
Giants and redksins are tied
Let’s all root for the tie
Giants about to try a long fg
This game was fun to watch. Feel bad for Gaskin. Elation one moment scoring his first NFL TD and then probably done for the season the next with an injury
LOL, we don’t do anything easy
This was a good game but ….
um, huh? lol
Really ?? OT ?? Really ?? WHY ??
Chance for more injuries
I guess if we lose and the Giants win, we basically have the #2 slot now, lol.
Always look at the bright side of life
1st ad goal giants
Gesicki tanking LMAO KIDDING !!!
drake just ran 60 yards. for a td
But he has a small ass
Huge mistake by Ross
Maybe we are trying to trick the Bengals into sticking with Andy Dalton, LOL
So, what does a tie do to our draft position?
Not sure on ours , but would seal #1 for Cincy
Both teams playing for the tie
May have found a Run Sieler
We’re really close in SOS with Detroit, as of right now we stay ahead of them by a few % points.
If we tie
But based on what along says, it looks like we are going to be the 3 pick anyway
Sanders is going to miss it
How did we end up in OT
I stopped watching the game
We stopped playing defense
We win woohoo
NEVER A DOUBT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well, we certainly made that fun, lol.
ANYBODY have a wild guess where we’ll pick if we beat the Patsies?
Likely 6 or 7 depending on whether Jax wins another game or not. And 5th if Jax wins one and Det wins their last 2.
ARI matters too. If they win today and Jax wins one, the worst we can do is 5th.
So we’re in the 5 spot right now. If Detroit wins we move up to #4.
I think we remain in the 3 spot at the end of the day. No worse than 4
Best we can do today is 4th if Detroit wins. We can’t jump the Giants due to SOS.
Does anyone know? Did we drop behind giants bc the SOS changed?
Basically when they bet the redakins got suckier
We’re not catching their SOS this week or next. They have 20% points on us.
WTF…..just saw the scroll on Dolphins. OT win?
The Jets beat Pittsburgh?
So the 5 teams currently ahead of Miami are…
IS THAT RIGHT?
THANKS, Kong, Who does Washington play next week?
Wash plays the Cowboys. Giants play the Eagles. If we end up tied with Wash, we will probably jump them due to SOS. If we end up tied with the Giants they will be ahead of us due to SOS. We basically need each of the 3 teams ahead of us to win one game and we’ll end up in the #2 slot (unless we beat the Pets).
I’m LMAO at the twitter and media outrage over our win against the worst team in the NFL. The narrative has been ruined. and the naysayers are out in force promoting…losing of course. Losers always promote losing.
LOL, to each their own, but I don’t get it. Even in OT, knowing a loss would almost certainly give us the number #2 pick, I couldn’t root for us to lose.
Anyone who had watched both teams would have thought we would win and therefore be prepared for it. Some terrible decision making in the end almost gave them what they wanted but there was a strong case for the Skins to get #2 even if we had lost. The Pats have been the winningest team in the NFL for 18 years…and still win without the #1 or #2 pick. It’s really, really stupid and a sign of their beliefs.
We weren’t going to get Burrow anyway. Whether we pick #2 or #5, we will get to chose from DE Young, OT Thomas, CB Okudah, DT Brown so I am good with who ever falls to us a #5.
I didn’t realize Tenn jumped Pitt today for a playoff spot. So all Tenn has to do is win against Houston next week and their in, and Pitt is out.
Yes! Also, if Pitt loses in Balt next week and Rams win might help. If Steelers finish 8-8 there are a couple others like Colts and Bears (need to play their ass off) who could also finish 8-8. Not sure about SOS in all that though.
The Pitt/Balt game is interesting. Balt has #1 sewn up, and I don’t recall if Harbaugh is a rest ’em or play ’em guy. But even if he does play his starters, you can bet he isn’t going to subject Jackson to a bunch of hits so it may give Pitt a chance in that game.
I agree. I knew it would be like this. And what do you think they would say if we lost to the hapless bengals
They just want to be miserable
They would have eviscerated our coaches, team, and FO for ‘lack of progress’. That’s why I hate them and don’t pay to read their schlock. Nothing is good enough, they are geniuses, lets find some drama.
Their attempts at pushing the tank narrative look foolish in a wider window especially with Tua being a real possibility for us. We have the most picks and the most money in a great draft while Brady is quickly losing his abilities. Now is the perfect time and we have a good coach. They will never admit it tho.
I’m confused how we get the 2 over the redskins with the loss
Don’t they still have the same tiebreaker they would have had entering today
Before today it was 1 bengals 2 redskins 3 us 4 giants 5 lions
Now we flipped with giants bc their SOS changed
How do you get to two with redskins losing
Going into today we had the same record an we were ahead of them on SOS by, I think, 6% points and were ahead of them in draft slot at #3. We likely would have stayed ahead of them if we had lost.
Right now they have a better SOS of by 8%. Ours would have gone up a couple of points since Cincy would have won, but it wouldn’t have gone up 8% so we’de have stayed ahead of them.
No telling how next week changes to SOS will play out, it would have been close, and still will be if they win and we lose. We would have a good chance to stay ahead of them in SOS.
My bad, we weren’t in #3 we were in #4 . We weren’t ahead of the Giants, they were ahead of us and still are.
SHIIIIT. Disregard that last post. Last week we were in #3 because we were ahead of the Redskins (#4), and behind the Giants (#2). LOL
“Before today it was 1 bengals 2 redskins 3 us 4 giants 5 lions”
You have the skins and giants backwards on this. That is what threw me off.
Also BbMike I agree
Burrow was always off the table
He’s going 1 overall and for us to get there
We needed to lose today and hope the bengals lose next week
But people on twitter are saying We lot our shot our burrow…lol
I’m pretty sure we are looking at Tua, Brown, Thomas, Simmons, Delpit and Okafor with our first picks, if they all come out
If Tua is healthy he’s my first option
And I think he’s there at 5 With Burrow and young going 1 and 2
If he’s not healthy, I’m not sure I have a preference except I would rather spend the pick on someone upfront instead of a DB
I have to think the Skins will go with Thomas considering their situation with Trent Williams. They could trade Williams for a solid pick to help improve the rest of their draft as well. Unlike the Cardinals, I’;d do it ahead of time lol.
Hard to pass on a chase a young though
So if the Redskins, giants and lions win next week and we lose, we get the 2 pick?
See my answer to you above, Piggy. If that happens we have a very good shot at #2, but it will be pretty close with the Skins due to SOS.
Lions just took the lead over Denver 17-13.
Yes! Really hope they win that game. They have no shot against the Pack next week.
Lol…piggy won’t let it go.
Picking Tua with our first pick compromises the rest of our draft. He played behind an NFL OL in college. He won’t get that in Miami as far as I can tell, and if you think he’s the next Russell Wilson or Drew Brees, fair enough. I don’t.
We need starters with this draft especially our first. It’s a team game, not a one player makes the team game.
KRISH: NOBODY I know thinks it’s a 1-player game, especially the Flying Pig. So stop with this straw-man shit.
NOWE, as for TUA, I believe he’s the BEST OPTION if he’s still there when we pick. So he DOESN’T have to be the next Wilson or Brees. And, say, didn’t we PASS on BREES when we had a chance to sign him?? Do we have to pass on ANOTHER BREES, IF TUA’s that good?
WE are NOT going to get where we want to go with Herbert – – ever!! And Burrow will be long gone when we pick. SO, to me, TUA is the logical choice. I’m with Piggy!!
IF we take TUA, we MUST get at least two solid O-Linemen by the end of round 3. And, we’ll be in a position to DO IT.
If we take Tua, OD, he may not play at all in 2020 and we may keep 3 qbs on the roster
I think we can add a lot of OL by 2021
On the other hand we can pass on QB this year. I’m fine with that too
But I don’t think we can pass revamping the whole OL within the next 2 years
And it would be great if we did that this offseason and it was our focus
Fun game! We have no idea what our lineup is week to week yet people like Omar still says the coaching is not all that. LOL
Coaching is the best thing we have now.
Nice job DeVante Parker!
I see the same thing. Omar’s brain is rotting. I think his ego is putrid and contributing to necrosis.
He’s all about the click bait
I disagree about the Lions, they always play the Packers tough, they have them at home, and the Packers have not looked good at home against the Bears and Skins. I give them a shot next week
I hope you’re right!
I also stopped watching the game. Holy crap! I flipped back on later and saw the game still on and thought it had to be some kind of mistake. Crazy!
I stress, if his health checks out, Tua might be the pick
I’ve never wanted to tank for one player
But I think really highly of Tua and I think we have a shot at him bc of his injury
If it’s Tua, we can build up front with the rest of the draft
I want to get better in a lot of places
I’ve been looking at the players available
And I think in the 20s we can get some very good players up front if we go QB with the first pick
Tua by his history is no Russell Wilson. Wilson has been an Iron Man, Tua is made of paper mache lately. His durability scares the fuck out of me. If he can’t stay healthy in college with all the talent he has at Alabama, how will he stay healthy in the NFL?
I just hope we don’t pick a QB because we have Tua.
I really don’t think he’s all that, especially when Hurts bailed Alabama out twice against the best competition in college.
Where was Tua ?
Oh yeah…good thing he was Hurts.
The SEC is the best competition in college
I don’t know which games Tua missed off hand, but Tua faced plenty of ranked teams and won
This might freak people out but I’m not sure QB will be the top pick in 2020. There are other positions we have to upgrade other than QB.
It’s very possible we don’t draft a QB
I don’t want to draft one just for the sake of drafting one
But I’m just saying the things might fall into place to draft a special one
Talk to piggy! Lol!
If we draft Tua I will just hope he can prove me wrong and stay healthy. I will be excited because he would be the most talented QB we’ve had in here in a long time. Sorry Rock, Tannehill may be something of a Rich Gannon, but I wouldn’t put him in the class as a prospect of Tua.
Except that half this blog thinks he’s 💩
I don’t think he’s shit at all. He’s probably 1A to Burrow right now, it’s just the injuries have knocked him off being #1 and Burrow either 1A or even #2. I think if he’s injured all the time he’d be worth shit for us though, that’s my concern.
That’s why we might get him at 5 Mike
The injuries are the best thing to happen to him….eh…for us
27-17 broncos over lions
With 5 mins left
And, Tua lost to LSU if you believe it’s all about the QB. Then, lost to Auburn where he couldn’t produce. When the competition is fierce, he’s not there.
I don’t put Arkansas, MSU, Mississippi, and Missouri as competitive teams against SEC quality teams to beat. He lost to the elite in the SEC west. Last year no elite in west and couldn’t finish against Georgia. Thank you Hurts.
And, he was horrible against Clemson.
Eyes wide open.
I have also never seen him make a tight window throw. He doesn’t take it. He scrambles around until he finds a wide open guy. Not going to work in the NFL.
He beat LSU and Oklahoma last year
He beat Georgia in 2017
You can’t start in the SEC and go untested
You can’t win the SEC 2 of 3 years and not play against the best competition in college
I don’t see a nobrainer QB in this draft.
I can agree with this.
We have 5 1st and 4 2nd round picks as it stands right now the next two seasons not counting FA. Having the top pick is not that important.
There never is
Maybe Andrew Luck or John Elway
But every QB is picked apart
Wait until everyone starts telling you Joe Burrow sucks by February
You can’t measure the quality of a QB unless he’s been tested. I have never seen him succeed against quality opponents, only failure.
In the NFL, he will ONLY see quality and based on what I’ve seen of him, he will fail.
Doesn’t mean he’s a a bad college QB.
LSU last year is not LSU this, false equivalence. OK, please. 2017? Oh my.
LSU finished 11 last year
Half the SEC was in the top 10 last year. Not sure what you’re point is. Inferior competition at the college level, then hello, Welcome to the NFL.
Challenging a QB is what I’m talking about and a QB handling the next level. He can’t handle the elite in college, how will he handle the average in the NFL?
Okay forget Tua
Let’s draft Herbert
(Piggy hands the blog 🍅)
Although I don’t know what that red emoji means.
I believe that’s a tomato. Or maybe you say tomato. lol
Piggy, there is no Elway or Luck this year.
And there are quite a few qb other than those guys with success in the nfl
I think Burrow is a no brainer, first or second pick depending on who is picking in this years draft. And, to be clear, Burrow was able to find success after they changed their OC last year. This year he thrived with the new OC.
You didn’t see significant improvement in Tua, only more health issues. I don’t get it.

22 Yetur Gross-Matos, EDGE Penn State
23 Alex Leatherwood, OT Alabama
35 C.J. Henderson, CB Florida

151 Ezra Cleveland, OT Boise State
162 Clyde Edwards-Helaire, RB LSU
180 Denzel Mims, WR Baylor
188 Reggie Floyd, S Virginia Tech
217 Logan Stenberg, OG Kentucky
I’m an idiot. What does handing the blog, or me, a tomato, mean. Clueless, like who will make a good QB in the NFL.
So you can throw them at me when I throw out another Qb’s name
Makes no sense in throwing a tomato at you. You are a pig. You would just eat it and say thank you. 😉
I really only see one QB I would draft. Then done until….we draft 5 other starters in first tw rounds. So silly.
Does someone get fired in Dallas tonight?
Next time I’m posting a fruit basket
Always hated the tank for Tua narrative on multiple levels….why would anyone ever tank and why for him?
If we pick him and he succeeds, awesome.
If we don’t, and he fails, awesome.
LOL. Just my opinion.
I hated that idea of tanking too
But that’s not about this players qualities
I think he is an excellent college QB on a special team that doesn’t translate to a good NFL.
…to the NFL.
Cards going to win!
Yep! That knocks one off. Worst we can end up now is 6th, and that only happens if we beat the Pets and Jax wins their last 2.
Jax *loses their last two.

Jake Hanson is actually pretty good too…I think
That Oregon line was decent, some good players on it
Late to the Tua talk but he’s talented. He did beat some top teams but he’s also had some bad games. It’s up to the individual on which they put higher and how the injury issues affect his spot. Burrow wasn’t good until he got that top OC and then he exploded. He’s my favorite QB but going to Cincy will probably lead to an unsatisfying career. Every QB has warts, even Burrow. Every player has warts somewhere.
We have a top coach but he also didn’t build Rosen into a good QB so even he has flaws. I don’t care if we get QB this year but I expect our draft spot to be much, much lower next year. Maybe we find the next Wilson? Pitt has looked excellent for a team using a 3rd rounder and an undrafted guy all year.
NO COACH ON THIS PLANET could turn Rosen into an All-Pro quarterback. Acquiring him was called a “no brainer” by some on this board. I agree. IF you have no brains then getting him is a smart move.
WELL all Kenyon Drake did today was run for 166 yards and 2 touchdowns to lead Arizona to a 27-13 upset win in Seattle, a hard place to win at. I’d agree with Drake’s Miami critics that one season does not a career make. But, THIS SEASON, Drake’s been better than any other running back on Miami’s roster. It will be interesting to see how the draft pick we got for him performs. Meanwhile, getting out of south Florida seems to suit Mr. Drake just fine.
I’ve always liked Drake but two different coaching staffs didn’t. He’s very talented and I hope him good fortune. One benefit he has today is a running QB and we’ve seen just how much Jackson has helped the running game in Baltimore. He’s probably in the best place to maximize his talent so I hope to see his name a lot the next few years.
Drake wasn’t re-signing with Miami. Ignored their overtures, was going to be a free agent. They traded him to get something that they were not going to get if he walked. We know it doesn’t fit your I-Hate-The-Front-Office-And-Steve-Ross narrative, but for fuck’s sake give it a rest.
OD with the wiseman comments and immature insults once again. I’m amazed he didn’t mention Ross once. LOL
..but no mention of how great the weather is or how non-existent the taxes are, so that’s something.
But I don’t want a shrimpy Injury prone left-handed quarterback
Another thing about Drake, did you see him slice his throat and throw out the money finger symbols when scoring? after his failure in Miami did you think we should sign him to a new heavy contract as he assumes he’s getting or get something for him in next years draft?
he didn’t have the numbers and we are not in a position to sign a RB like him to a big contract$$$.
That depends on where we draft that shrimpy left handed QB.
i think the jury is still out on Rosen, give him a running game and protection and then assess him.
It’s is certainly still out
There is no Jury. It is not a jury trial. The Judge will be judging without input from any stinkin jury!
Here comes the Judge Here comes the Judge
“Fitzpatrick had another a big game (419 yards, 4 TDs) and made some cool NFL history as he became the first QB to ever throw 4 TD in a single game for 5 different teams.”
Amazing that he’s able to accomplish this w/o Drake!

Excellent. I can see the NFL schedulers at work. Monday Night Football opener, The Bengals Joe Burrow, versus the Miami two headed QB duo known as JoshTua.
Should be exciting, don’t you think so Rock?
Miami has played 83 different players and we are still 4-4 in the last 8 games. Flores is looking for the backend 22 for next year. We have a solid WR group. Our TES are finally ok. We have some pieces on D but we need some help in the trenches. Grier said QB may not be the priority people think it is. That’s good to know after seeing the BS all year from the local garbage writers. Good article here.
I’m voting for the fest in Vegas next year
JUST SAY NO TO SHRIMPY LEFT HANDED FRAGILE QB’S!!
Ingram has a calf strain and may be ready for the playoffs.
Sucks but makes sense for them.
Hopefully the Titans can just get a win to knock ’em out.
LMAO, It is amazing how the flipping national media hates us. I just read a game by game grading and in our game the Bengals got a B+ while we got a B-
Daniel Jeremiah said on NFLN that the Dolphins were predicted to go winless and they have 4 wins finishing up with Brian Flores can coach man, he’s a good football coach, then Steve Wyche adding and they love him down there.
Damn – That makes me hate the Ravens even more. Didn’t know that was possible . . .
They are a close 2nd to me right behind the Patriots
So, NFL news today is that it looks like Lynch is going to be signed by the Seahawks by the end of the day.
They have to, they lost 3 RBs. Crazy!
Congrats to Stanger who hangs on for a 130-127 win over Bridesmaid two years running ER. Good season guys and gals
Great season everyone!
Feliz Noche Buena!
Last place 3 years in a row!
NEW BLOG UP!!
Let us all give thanks this holiday season that Adam Gase is not our HC. This guy is a 1A world class douche bag…and not a good coach.
Fuck him, asshat!
Kong – To be fair, Manish Mehta is a big time shit stirrer in the Metro area here. He seems to be hellbent on causing controversy. On the other hand, we learned first hand that Gase is a doucher, so it’s probably all true!
