Dolphins will hit the ground running in 2020

It’s not just the addition of Jordan Howard, the physical type of back we haven’t had here for a while. It’s the commitment to being capable of running the ball. The offensive line has been revamped and in almost every case they are big strong run blockers. Oddly enough, the exception is our second 1st RD pick, LT Austin Jackson. It’s not that Jackson isn’t a good run blocker, he is, but he’s not a road grader. Robert Hunt and Solomon Kindley are. Ereck Flowers can be. It’s painful to look back at the depth chart early on last season after trading Laremy Tunsil. Jesse Davis at LT, Michael Deiter at LG, Dan Kilgore at C, Evan Boehm at RG and Isaiah Prince at RT. I don’t know for sure what the line will look like but my guess is it will be Jackson LT, Flowers LG, Karras C, Hunt or Davis at RG and the other at RT. Michael Deiter may give a fight for a guard spot but whoever wins this year will be locked in a tough battle.

Trading for Matt Breida puts the speed back into the depth chart at RB after trading away Kenyan Drake. Breida is a similar player, he’s a HR hitter with his speed and is a good receiver out of the backfield. Having Jordan Howard wearing down opposing defenses will make Brieda even more dangerous. I can almost guarantee you we will be a better team on the ground than last year. Of course that’s not saying much considering Ryan Fitzpatrick was our leading rusher with 243 yards. We’re going to be a much more physical team. Whoever is on the O-line is going to be a punishing run blocker. No finesse offense, that’s off the table. Just think of how much more successful our offense could be with a legitimate rushing attack. With more push from the line our backs, all of our backs will look better than their 2019 counterparts.

The only damper on my enthusiasm is the lack of OTA’s and practices which potentially 6 new starters in the run game including the RB will need. What a shame. The bright side is that opposing defenses will also be missing the time they need to jell so it works both ways. I’m thinking that by the end of the season we may actually have one of the better running attacks in football. Certainly by next season we will be even better. Well OK, to be fair, it’s not just the lack of practice and workouts, there’s the possibility there may not even be s 2020 season, although I think that’s a slim chance.

I still think Ryan Fitzpatrick will be running this team, at least early on. If he plays well, there’s no reason to change that. He’ll be glad to have Jordan Howard and Matt Breida, and Myles Gaskin and Patrick Laird will all look better, even Kalen Ballage should look better with better run blocking. I’m eager to see impose our will on opposing defenses, much like we did when Jay Ajayi was a threat to do that every game. He didn’t do it every game, but the fact that he had some dominant performances kept the defense honest, even if he wasn’t successful on the ground. We need that edge back, we need teams to respect our run game in order to be an overall better team. The best teams all can run the ball, we need to be one of them.

GO DOLPHINS!!!

    Oink and first

  2. The Flying Pig says:

    I posted a long response for you Rob on the prior blog. I’m not going to post it here so we can move on with other stuff

  3. The Flying Pig says:

    Good post Mike

    If we play in 2020 I expect that we are a heavy run team
    That should be a relief to fitz

  4. Tim Knight says:

    Mike and Kong, totally agree on person to person or even on the phone as opposed to the written word. Written debates take so much more time and it’s difficult to put out fires along the way. We’ve seen that here many times.

  5. The Flying Pig says:

    Hey Tim

    Did you know that there was a Monty Python making the rounds on social media bc some one trolled Fox News?

  6. New Age says:

    Mike E,

    Good article and I agree we should be a dominant running team by season end. It would have been nice to see our guys use the heat and extra training to start the year off running (terrible pun) but I also worry that the lack of practice and time to jell will slow us down early. We won’t be the only team with those issues but with a all new OL, it will hurt us more than teams like NO and the Bills though. There should be some really sloppy ball the first month. Hopefully the back to basics standards of Flores gives us an advantage.

  7. wyoming85 says:

    Lets hope we stay away from these!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. CavalierKong says:

    I tell ya guys, I am so ready for some football.

  9. Tim Knight says:

    Mike, no doubt Flores wants to be physical in all phases of the game. This offseason proves that. Edge guys like Lawson and Ogbah are not Von Miller type pass rushers, but they do upgrade our pass rush. They both can play physical and set the edge against the run game as well – they’re not one trick ponies. The OL and Front 7 has to be physical under Flores or his concept doesn’t work.

    Howard who is a between the tackles physical runner was another example for sure. The same with players added in the secondary and on STs.

    Isn’t it typical in the Dolphins time of a new era via rebuild with a new HC, the COVID strikes? It’s unbelievable!!! What did we do that was so wrong? LOL

  10. mf13ss says:

    Thought I’d drop by to talk some Dolphins football with y’all. Caught up with the last few days here. Bad time, I see. I’ll come back at a safer time.

  11. Mike E. says:

    It’s safe to post M13, it always has been. It’s just a bunch of people sharing their opinions. Sure, there are dust ups but so what? It happens everywhere where people don’t agree. What’s the worst that can happen? You shouldn’t worry so much what someone else is thinking. Everyone has the right to post their opinion here, as long as it doesn’t get personal, and even in that regard, we’ve given a shit ton of latitude and we’ve let people settle their own incidents.

        Its just being reported, years ago more of this happened, but no one went national with it.

  12. steveccnv says:

    Watching the Chargers game. Rowe gets a penalty for lowering his head while making the tackle. The receiver lowered his head too, how the fuck is he supposed to make a tackle standing straight up?

    I’m going down to the strip now, I want to protest, we need referee reform 🙂

    Dolphins hype video, Tua really has a weenie arm. I hope his accuracy, timing, ball placement, quick release, progressions, and all the other intangibles he brings are enough to overcome it.

    • ElephantRider says:

      It is weenie…

      I hope he becomes the second coming of noodle arm.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Tua doesn’t step into his throws enough. That will change in the NFL or he’ll be out of the league. He has plenty of arm strength though. His accuracy is elite. He makes great timing and corner throws. Can he hold up?

    • New Age says:

      Unfortunately, this is the guy who’s been training Tua.

      Holds not called because he played for NE, 656. lol

      • steveccnv says:

        Because they teach holding as a grey area. They cheat mostly, just enough to be affective, but not too much that it’s called a lot. Everyone does it, but they hold better😉

  21. ocalarob says:

    good post mike,
    one thing that wasn’t mentioned was chan gailey’s spread offense which spreads the D and opens up running lanes. that along with the beef up front.

    so i agree we will be a good running team for sure.

  22. steveccnv says:

    The things I liked about Mekhi, I also see in Kindley, not the greatest technique pass blocking, but get in front of them and they’ll run your ass over.

  26. stangerx says:

    Good write-up Mike E. While think we have the makings of a good run game my time-line on it is a bit less this season than you. That’s a whole new line (gonna take time to gelll) and a lot of the draftees are real young and raw. Could see us get to average though, which would be a major improvement.

  27. stangerx says:

    Like the desire , but the rehab specialist also didn’t say Tua was ready to go.
    ———————
    “He’s a little bit ahead as far as where we would like him. We’re constantly trying to slow him down just a little bit because an athlete like that is just chomping at the bit just begging to get back out there. He wants to do more and more so we have to hold him back. And really, that was from the beginning. He always wanted to do more.”

    Kevin Wilk, Tua’s rehab guy

  28. bailbondmike says:

    Tua doesn’t step into his throws enough. That will change in the NFL or he’ll be out of the league.
    ———————————————————————–
    I am not so sure Tim. Patrick Mahomes has possibly the worst footwork of all starting QB’s in the league. Something the Chief’s having him working on this off season. Mahomes is a perfect fit for their system/offense coupled with his athletic ability leads to his success. Depending how Tua fits this offense (should fit very well) and he stays healthy, he should eventually have the same kind of success. He will need to work on that though.

    • steveccnv says:

      Mahomes gets away with poor footwork, because his arm is so strong. A luxury Tua doesn’t have, so using Mahomes as an example doesn’t change what Tim said.

      Montana had a weak arm, but he was a system fit, even in the Candlestick wind. Tua should be brought along like Brady was, quick slants and short passes, timing routes.

  29. bailbondmike says:

    I am not sure we brought in all this OL beef and Howard to ground and pound it. That is not really Gailey’s offense. Howard is considered an above average pass blocker in addition to being a pounder between the tackles. I have looked Gailey up to try and get an idea of what our offense will look like. Here is a bunch of cut and paste from articles I found:

    – In his time with the Jets and Bills no team had a higher number of plays with 3 receivers or more and no team ran more plays with an empty backfield. (Think about our WR’s corps and what the Bills and Jets had back then. Not even close to what we have.)

    – At its core, it’s a spread offense. There are a lot of 11, 10, 01, and 00 personnel, which means lots of receivers. As a side note, personnel groupings are defined by the number of running backs and tight ends. One RB and one TE is 11 personnel. One RB and no TEs are 10 personnel, and no RBs and 1 TE is 01 personnel. If you subtract the sum of those two numbers from five, that’s how many wide receivers are on the field (since there are eleven spots on the field, and six are taken by the offensive line and quarterback). That means a lot of receivers on the field on any given play. It’s actually somewhat rare for there to be less than three on any given play. It also means that ground and pound is dead. This is a pass-heavy offense, as Gailey been moving to more passing sets since 1995 with the Pittsburgh Steelers. It’s a zone-based scheme (“ZBS”), and there isn’t much power running. There are very few two-back sets. As I mentioned, there’s almost always 11, 10, or 01 personnel. There’s always someone extra back there to help protect the quarterback, so you won’t see many sacks, but there’s little emphasis on a power run game.

    – Gailey’s offense rarely just lines up and runs the ball straight up the gut. There are often motions to uncover what the defense is doing, and the offensive line is constantly moving. It requires athletes on the line, because along with the ZBS, there are a lot of pulling of the guards and moving pockets. Although there isn’t much in the way of play-action, it isn’t uncommon to see the quarterback on the move.

    – In Kansas City, he ran a lot of pistol formations before it became popular to take advantage of Thigpen’s mobility. Gailey didn’t have much of an offensive line in Buffalo, so he ran an up tempo offense to have Fitzpatrick get the ball out quickly.

    – The system is designed to stretch the field, particularly horizontally. Gailey has a tendency to use the outer edge of the field, outside the hashes, for his passing plays; there aren’t a ton over the middle. This is intended to stretch the defense out, make them cover boundary-to-boundary, and strain them to the breaking point. There are a lot of short passes to get guys in space and let them do their thing. But that’s ultimately what this offense is predicated on. There’s a lot of wide receivers on the field and the goal is to get them in space.

    – What makes the offense interesting is that there really aren’t a whole lot of plays. What Gailey does instead is to change the formation and personnel, but running the same core concepts from each, to give you fifteen different looks of what is, at its most basic function, the same play.

  30. herdfan says:

    Thought you guys might appreciate this. I’m selling my vintage Volvo, I have Dolphins floor mats in it. Didn’t think anything about it but you can see them in the pictures I posted. One of the guys who contacted me about it is from Boston, a Pats fan and he noticed and mentioned it. Strike! Not selling to him! 😂

  31. bailbondmike says:

    Steve, I think Tua has above average arm strength. Equal or greater arm strength than Fitz but not stronger than Rosen. Of the QB’s this past draft, Tua ranked 6th in arm strength and there were some guys with cannon’s (Herbert, Eason, etc.). I also don’t think Mahomes arm is all that stronger. Maybe it is but Mahomes makes so many off balance throws it just looks that way to me and it is hard to tell.

    • D says:

      His arm is good. Nothing weak about it at all. His arm is better than all but one of the QB prospects this year. Its not on Mahomes level, but not many are. Relative to most QB’s in the league though, he is right there with the rest.He also generates most of his throws using arm, a lot of ones he threw on the run, so he has great arm strength and with a solid pocket and coaching, i think it might be better than most.

    • steveccnv says:

      Mahomes can throw it 80 yards, Tua about 55. For speed the top 2 were close to 60 Herbert and Love, Tua low 50s. I pointed his weenie arm out before the draft, way before any of these stats came out, based on his film.

      It shouldn’t be a problem, because I think his intangibles are more important. Think of Pennington, with a stronger arm, and better intangibles.

      Quick release more than makes up for his arm strength. His ability to move a D and his accuracy also mask arm strength.

      He’s a QB, not a fastball pitcher. You want a fastball pitcher take Henne or Rosen.

  32. D says:

    You cant watch his videos and see weak arm, i dont know why this is blossoming up again, but it wasnt true before and its not true now.

    • steveccnv says:

      So you really can’t see a difference in a pitcher that throws 100 and one that throws 85?

      Tua’s throws are mostly touch passes, with big loops in them, but even when he puts it on a line, there’s not that much zip. His long passes clearly could use more zip.

      Elway’s rookie year, he threw it so hard, he didn’t get many ints, because it was too hot to handle.

  33. The Flying Pig says:

    I hear a lot of different takes in Tua’s arm strength

    Personally I never felt he had a weak arm when I watched his games.

    In fact I thought he appeared to have a strong arm. But it’s never been his physical traits that made him elite at the college level – it’s usually things like decision making and accuracy

    But it’s not like arm strength hasn’t been mentioned before as one of his weaknesses

  34. The Flying Pig says:

    Do you think Pats fans will notice these floor mats?

    • steveccnv says:

      Whose car is that? Looks like the back bumper was signed by Wilkins.

      • The Flying Pig says:

        It’s just a random pic online

        I bet it’s a promotional car or something like that

      • D says:

        Not sure where ya see Wilkins signature. I see dolphins scrawled on the bumper but don’t see Wilkins signature anywhere

  35. steveccnv says:

    SIs Chris Orr has a piece on every teams biggest weakness, but for the AFC we’re the only team, that has 2 listed. Pass rush and RB.

    RB as Alain Poupart points out isn’t a weakness. When talking here about weaknesses, we focused on positions and not events, pass rush wasn’t something I considered, but I kind of agree, at least until we prove it wrong.

    Alain says we didn’t bring in a big time pass rusher, so he agreed its a weakness, but the cheats never really had one guy with big numbers. I see us the same way, lots of guys will get sacks, but I don’t see anyone with 10+. Also you improve sacks numbers with coverage, scheme and by having a lead making your opponent more one dimensional. In years where we only had a few wins, we generally didn’t have ma y sacks.

    A lot of the time rushing yards and sacks go hand in hand with winning, since you can pile them up late in games.

  36. bailbondmike says:

    Of the top 5 he was bottom in arm strength. Yes, but Herbert, Eason and Love have huge cannon’s.

  37. wyoming85 says:

  38. herdfan says:

    Let’s see if this works.

  39. New Age says:

    Herd,

    That car is fantastic. Contrast to owning and now selling it.

  40. herdfan says:

    If anyone ever watched The Saint, the TV version of James Bond, this is the type of car Roger Moore was driving. Fun fact, it was actually his car, another car was supposed to be the Saint’s car, but there was an issue, rather than delay production they used Roger’s own car.

    • CavalierKong says:

      It’s crazy that something as straight forward as arm strength isn’t universally agreed on by player evaluators, both professional and ours on the board. Just goes to show how complicated this stuff can be.

      I thought I read someone post on here the other day say that Tua has a quicker release than Marino, but the article you posted has him listed as a 7 in release, and no way Marino was only a 7, lol.

  43. pheloniusphish says:

    I don’t think his arm is weak at all. He throws the ball as hard as he needs to and seems to throw an easy ball to catch. J’Marcus Russell (sp?) could throw the ball out of the stadium, but couldn’t hit a stadium wall from inside. Doesn’t matter how hard you can throw the ball if it misses the receiver.

    • steveccnv says:

      I agree with everything after the first sentence. I don’t think the strength of his arm is going to define his career though.

  44. Mike E. says:

    Herd – Don’t be offended, but this came to mind. Sweet looking ride. The car’s nice too. 😉

  45. The Flying Pig says:

    Meh…..
    I’ve seen better….

  46. CavalierKong says:

    This seems like a great piece of analysis. I haven’t looked into the guy that did it, or done any kind of credibility check, but his video analysis shows Tua having a slightly faster release than Marino, Rodgers, and Watson who are at the top of the list.

    It also outlines arm strength and Tua being ‘below average’ of the top QBs he put on the list. I don’t think this is necessarily below league average though, just not elite.

    • Phindog says:

      I’ll take accuracy over arm strength all day long.

      • CavalierKong says:

        Yep, agreed. Give me accuracy and intangibles, as long as the guy has an NFL arm, it doesn’t have to be elite. And nobody is saying Tua doesn’t have an NFL arm.

    • CavalierKong says:

      This guy has Tua having arm strength nearly identical to Deshaun Watson and Daniel Jones. I’ve never heard either of them called weak armed.

  47. Phindog says:

    Well if we can get Daniel Jones arm strength with Deshaun Watson’s accuracy then Go Tua !!

    Wtf

  58. pheloniusphish says:

    Cav – Regarding your article on release, etc. I think what set Marino above all QB is that while a Tua might be .02 seconds faster on release, Marino combined the release with decision making, arm strength, and accuracy. He was Love’s arm, Tua’s accuracy and release, and Burrow’s decision making all wrapped up in one body.

    • steveccnv says:

      Tua moves DBs and can move in the pocket, that’s his trade off for Marino’s arm.

      Bottom line is, he’s got more than enough traits to be a great NFL QB.

    Son, you present yourself with great grilling wisdom. However, I have had so much coffee my pits are sweaty. I already, weed wacked and mowed the back yard. Vacuumed the pool. Trimmed back my elephant ears and ginger plants, cleaned up the banana trees and did a little pruning on my cocktail trees. Maybe I need to put a little something extra in my coffee.

  64. steveccnv says:

    Just when I thought i had a beat on some positions like safety and WR, I read a Fansided article that changed things.

    I thought Rowe was going to be a lock at SS, but now, even though I expect him to get lots of reps there, I think Kavon Frazier might get lots too. At least he’s more of a traditional SS.

    It’s getting to the point where no one really has a position on D. 11 guys will be thrown out there and let the O figure out who is playing where. Mass confusion at its finest by design.

    In some years past I thought the cheats level of talent wasn’t very good, yet they always seemed to get it done when they had to. I think it’s easy to see why they played great in stretches, when they did have the talent. We seem to be following those trends.

  77. Tim Knight says:

    By the way I don’t think Tua has a weenie are. I’ve never heard any scout pundits call out his arm strength either. He just doesn’t have a cannon. But his drop back style is kind of unorthodox.

    • Ken says:

      He has a cannon and has been called out by scouts for that

      • Tim Knight says:

        Meaning he doesn’t have an Elway/Favre type arm. But not many QBs do. He has plenty of arm strength for the next level and his vision, timing and accuracy is what makes him special

      • Ken says:

        It may not be that but it’s not far from that

    • steveccnv says:

      I bet he’s got a more powerful right arm. Another idiot dad, that thinks he knows best.

      • Tim Knight says:

        That might be why his drop back and set-up looks awkward even thought he’s been successful with it. It’s not totally natural.

  80. Tim Knight says:

    Ken, I never questioned Tua’s arm strength. It looks plenty good to me. My concerns were his size, durability and did playing on a loaded team make him look better than he is. But as the draft drew closer and most pundits continued to say he’s the best QB in the draft sans the injury concerns I backed off on the rest. I also watched a lot of video on him before the draft and after we selected him. He makes pro throws. His timing and accuracy throwing corner of the end zone passes is very sharp. He also leads his receivers so they can run after the catch.

    I’m cool with that, man. However, you need to rescind your “as long as it doesn’t get personal” company line. Frankly, it’s most dishonest at best, and you know it.

    I’m not getting dragged into past drama, EITHER, see. And that is exactly why I don’t find it safe to post here at the moment. And once again, I’m barely seeing any football comments today.

    I’ll come back once the coast is clear. Too much drama on this blog, Bro. I need a positive distraction/outlet from what is going on in this country, and I thought I might find it here so as talk FOOTBALL! I’m not dissin’ anybody here, I just can’t deal with the drama (who can???).

    I hope you don’t find my words to be divisive, bud… I just can’t deal with the drama. Hopefully, the blog will get rejuvenated with football once camp is underway.

    Stay safe, stay sane, and be well, ALL!

    • Mike E. says:

      M – I let you guys go at it. I let Phelon and Krishna go at it. It all works itself out. If it’s not for you I respect that. No one needed to be disciplined. If you want me to retract the personal part I’ll do so gladly. We give a shit ton of leeway here. We’re all adults. Again, if it’s not your cup of tea, then I get it. I wish we had more sports to talk about but that shit is dried up. COVID-19 has destroyed sports at the moment, so all kinds of shit get discussed here now. There’s no more wrong here than there is on any other social media platform, and I’ll stand by that statement.

  91. CavalierKong says:

    Phel, I agree with everything you wrote about Marino. I’m not putting Tua in Marino’s class as a QB just yet, lol. He has the next decade+ to try and earn that comparison.

    That article was just a source to validate the assertion Tua has a slightly faster release than Marino and has an arm much closer to average than elite.

  92. Tim Knight says:

    M13, post as you will. It’s not anymore complex than that.

  93. TryPod says:

    I know some of you care about what others write, particularly when it comes to the Dolphins.. well, here’s a (mostly) positive article:

    • TryPod says:

      Personally, I don’t give a shit what others say or write or think about the Dolphins. Like them or don’t, doesn’t matter to me. I mean, Pete Prisco has never written a “positive” article about the Dolphins, and I could give a crap less. I don’t think any less or any more about him because of this. These guys are in the business to make money, and controversy, etc. make clicks which make money. No different than Rush Limbaugh, Rachel Maddow, Glenn Beck, Keith Olbermann.. they say things to get attention so they can get paid. If Alex Jones or Joy Behar’s car broke down in front of my house, I wouldn’t invite either in for coffee.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      Woop woop

      Something positive

      I keep seeing people pick the Bills to win the division
      And that just makes me think the Dolphins have a shot to win it

  94. TryPod says:

    As far as the Aunt Jemima/Uncle Ben/etc. conversation, my thought is, while everyone is hyper-sensitive and butthurt and whatever term you use to describe the social environment of today, just go ahead and rip the band-aid off. Let’s get all this shit out in the open, get rid of whatever, add whatever, and let’s move on. This tit-for-tat, petty, retribution crap is really tiresome, so let’s just do it all now and be done with it.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      Good post Trypod

      I actually do think aunt Jemima is a racist image x 10
      But I didn’t want to bog down the blog with that stuff

      It’s worth a read about the history of that image if people are up for it on your own

      • TryPod says:

        Yes Pig, it is inheritanly racist, particularly if you know the origins. I’m not into condoning it. I’m happy to see it go if it makes people feel more respected. It will not hurt me in the least.

    • Mike E. says:

      Funny Try, I woke this morning and was thinking in the long run, it’s really not a big deal in the least. If people feel better because that stuff is changed, even if it’s just a symbol of change, then I’m fine with it.

      The other conversation I had with my family is more disturbing to me. People who say things like “If you support Trump or even have friends or family that do I can’t be friends with you because he’s racist, because he repealed transgender healthcare etc etc.” If that’s the case, people will only be friends with totally like minded people and man that would be one boring ass existence. I know a lot of people that are either over the top left or over the top right. I can overlook those things in all of them and just take them for who they are. It’s just so pathetic to me the the way people behave these days, far too much sensitivity and a lack of tolerance.

      • TryPod says:

        I can’t speak to the personalities, but I dare say most of my blood relatives are definitely on one side of this argument, and probably half my friend group. I’d be real lonely if I cut everyone out of my group who do what I don’t think is right, and life would be boring. I just hate that everything is politicized right now.

      • Mike E. says:

        Well, I had this discussion with my kids last night and was very disappointed to hear their view on this. They feel it’s fine for people to just cut people out of their lives if other people they know don’t agree with an important matter they disagree on. I swear I didn’t raise them this way, I don’t know where it comes from. If they are an accurate sample of society to come it’s going to be a very sad situation.

  95. pheloniusphish says:

    I don’t know why any company would keep branding with an image that is almost 150 yeas old. I also don’t know why anyone is bothered by an image that old.

    • pheloniusphish says:

      I also don’t think the image was racist per se. It was representative of the culture of the time. By today’s standards, yes it is certainly insensitive. But racist? Not without intent.

    • Mike E. says:

      Which one are you talking about? Aunt Jemima was updated 6 times. Call me crazy but that was a comforting image to me, a nice black woman on the front smiling. I never thought she was a slave, but she looked so friendly. Like I said a little bit ago, if people were offended by it and now they’re happy, all good with me. I’ll get over it when they slap some generic name on it w/o that friendly face.

      • pheloniusphish says:

        Yep Aunt Jemima. Never thought about it either. But obviously there are those in today’s cancel culture that are two sensitive to laugh at the absurdity of what people found effective advertising.

  96. pheloniusphish says:

    Mike – My son is the same way. He is close to learning a hard life lesson about biting the hand that feeds you.

    • Mike E. says:

      Any idea where this type of thinking originates from? Is it on some social media, or learned in school? I thought diversity is preached, yet this kind of thinking is probably just as bad as racism.

      • steveccnv says:

        It’s the narrative they get from school and MSM. My son tells me the same stuff from some people at his school. No one can tell him anything, he either researches or figures it out on his own.

        He’s more apolitical, hates both parties, but leans slightly right. He has some problems with capitalism and thinks we’ll need basic income in the future.

        He talks about a new an improved govt. He’s always got ideas as to why things can be improved.

      • pheloniusphish says:

        Our education system

  97. steveccnv says:

    Well Mike, I woke this morning thinking, we’ll know what kind of an arm Tua has week 1, if he starts it or whenever he faces the cheats. Belicheat will surely test him one way or another.

    The main reason I say his arm is weak is, because his deep passes were often behind his receivers, especially 50+ yards downfield. He hits guys in stride at 45, then things get a little iffy further than that. It wasn’t a problem at Alabama, because those receivers were 10+ yards past defenders a lot.

    Inside 45 he often threw early like Pennington, especially on outs. The biggest difference between Tua and Pennington is the scrambling ability, Tua can as Montana and Wilson did/do get out of harm’s way.

    The Ravens are the other team that could expose him.

    Other guys like Bridgewater could also move to make up for arm strength issues, but he doesn’t have the intangibles Tua has, so my Tua floor is much higher than Bridgewater’s.

    I of course exaggerated Tua’s arm, by calling it a weenie arm, just to make the point it’s not a strength of his and he’s going to have to deal with it.

    I think Tua’s passing ceiling is much higher than Wilson’s is, but I don’t think he’s as elusive, and that’s what makes Wilson great as it does for Jackson.

    I’d be shocked, if Tua, other than because of injury, isn’t a franchise QB for 10+ years.

    • Mike E. says:

      I don’t think Tua is starting week 1. That would be a huge surprise to me. I really do want to see what he can do for us though, but not that fast.

      • steveccnv says:

        I’m in the same boat, was just pointing it out, because some say he’s starting week 1.

  98. D says:

    No one should close the doors to anyone because thats how people are lost and that how neither side grows. People need to talk and have conversation about their views, and not just take a side and regurgitate a specific sides rhetoric. Be real, say what ya think and why ya think it. Admit fault, admit bias, call out bais in your direction. Not a comfortable talk but it needs to happen. Shutting people out because they buy your brand of soda doesnt fucking help. So you are right to feel concerned about your kids feeling its ok to do that Mike, because its unhealthy and it is part of the reason we are here right now.

  99. Mike E. says:

    D

    The convo began with a friend of my wife’s who has a son who is transgender. He said if anyone supports Trump you can’t be my friend. because he just repealed transgender patient protection. I suppose there are doctors that won’t treat transgender patients but would you want to go to one that wouldn’t want to treat you anyway? My wife reached out to him for some clarification, she didn’t know his son was transgender and he didn’t put in the post that he was, so he explained. My wife said my husband supports Trump and he said how could you be with someone who supports that monster. People are just totally off the rails because they’re only focusing on one thing. I can’t devote my entire thinking to a find a candidate that supports .00000000016% of the population and cut out everyone else. This world is a very strange place I tell you, and I think it’s getting worse.

    • D says:

      I dont think endorsing anything is endorsing the whole. Like i said im kinda funny about endorsing things unless im at a tipping point that i think the good outweighs the bad. I didn’t feel that way about Trump and i certainly didn’t feel that way about Hillary so i abstained from the vote, even though technically im still registered in Florida and could have made a difference with my vote. I was not happy picking either, simply because i didnt wanna feel responsible for either being our President lol.

      Your right to believe and vote for whomever tips the scales and i dont like either side drawing a line and trying to force a person to choose based upon losing them as a friend or whatever else ploy it is to sway their vote. I think thats pure ugly.
      You are right, it is getting worse, its bully tactics and this is a perfect opportunity in the world right now to bridge gaps and instead the gauntlet is being thrown down, if with us or against us. WTF, thats so ugly and divisive its not even funny. Either believe like me or be cat out, sounds like something a facist would say doesn’t it?

      Have ya heard about the “No cops allowed” area in Seattle, where a guy named Raz, i think he is a rapper, has declared himself the warlord over the area they call Chaz. He’s going around handing out AR15’s to defend against the cops and to carry out his orders. There are a bunch of disenfranchised highly influenced youths forming a militia Thats really bad.

      How about the Gundy and Sweeny thing where former players are talking about the shame they feel for playing for those guys, because of T-Shirts they decided to wear. Sweeny had a Football Matters shirt, a shirt that have been a round a while and never has been called insensitive before. Then there is Gundy who is being called a racist because he wore and OAN shirt on a private fishing trip. So now no one cane watch a news channel without declaring them a racist? WTF, is country becoming intolerant as hell, yes at lightning speed.

    Steve – my kids are so far to the left they’re almost on the right. They wanted Sanders and basically despise both parties. They would choose anyone over Trump though. I like that they want to get rid of the 2 party system, I do too but other than that we have nothing in common politically.

  104. steveccnv says:

    ESPN has an article about it being Flores 500th day as a Dolphin, and what will happen in the next 500 days, best/average/worst case scenarios.

    Best case on Oct 31st 2021, we’re 6-1 and leading the AFC East, Tua’s playing great, but the D is the main reason.

    Average, Tua has missed a couple of games, but we’re 4-3 and tied with the Bill’s, who we play in Miami week 8.

    Worst, Tua has only played 2 games winning both, and we’re 2-5, but he’s ruled out week 8 at game time, also Howard is still having knee problems

    I have a problem with them thinking Rosen can’t win 1 game out of 5 on a good team, so a very poorly written article.

    What they do see is Tua being what we thought he was, with his lack of success only due to injury.

    • steveccnv says:

      Also they see the rest of the team being 6-1, meaning the moves we’ve made were good, a little iffy with the running game and OL at times being what’s kept us from perfect 7-0, but good enough with Tua.

      Not sure how we’d go 6-1 with Tua and 0-7 with Rosen.

  105. TryPod says:

    And, as normal, a conversation that was apolitical has been turned…

    • D says:

      Im not sure this is a political conversation at this point. Its about rights to have opinions and not be shut out by them. I think its more of a statement about divisiveness of politics, and not a political discussion because no one is take a left/right side here. Conversations about opposing viewpoints is very healthy, its just when some start the left vs right finger pointing that it becomes political. Might be shades of it in the above conversation, but not too much.

      I did, and that’s a dangerous situation. Don’t be surprised to see more things like this happen. Police are going to revolt because in general they are being punished for a few bad apples.

    • D says:

      My belief is that In life there are cycles, and in each cycle you have a way of changing the cycle to grow how long you loop around in it. The choices are work on thing, put the effort into making shit better, therefore extending the time before the loop occurs, or 2, let it burn and the loop begins again.

      Not to sound melodramatic about things but i think we are at the crest of this loop, and im afraid we are past the point of repairing it so we can move forward, it really feels like we are about to hit that reset, which means shit is going to be very dark over the next little while.

      We are supposed to extend that loop every iteration we get, and maybe we did extend it a little while longer than expected, like Civil rights movement i think extended the loop a little, but here we are again, and this time no one wants to put int he work to get it done.Its a shitty year for sure, but its been a shitty decade or more getting to this place without stopping it before it got here.

    • steveccnv says:

      Yeah I saw it, but not sure what the cops were supposed to do. Their lives were in danger. The DA said 2 weeks ago a taser is a lethal weapon, now he’s charging this guy for murder, when it’s clearly self defense.

      • stangerx says:

        He said a Taser was a lethal weapon? It is designed to be a non-lethal weapon. I mean that someone determined it is that……. what was made to be.

      • steveccnv says:

        The same DA said that on camera 2 weeks prior. It is designed to be non lethal, when used by a trained professional, but if you hit someone in the wrong spot it can kill.

        You can’t punish the cop when a criminal acts in that manner, everything is moving so fast, that it’s really hard to make a decision in a split second, the cop acted by the book.

      • stangerx says:

        Guess self defense or not hinges on whether that Taser is a lethal weapon. If was a gun would be a no-brainer.

      • steveccnv says:

        When in doubt tie goes to the guy trying to do the right thing, not the criminal that chose to resist.

      • stangerx says:

        I’m sure the defense attorney would like you on that jury. My take is that cop is getting something though. Not sure exactly what…..but there will be a something.

  109. steveccnv says:

    Reading a couple of national articles, one from CBS and Dolphins Wire. Not sure why I even bother. Kyle Crabbs is the worst, he’s got us playing in Seattle this year. The CBS one is a depth chart, so…clueless of course.

  110. stangerx says:

    Good to see that M13 stopped bye. Obviously he can do whatever he decides is best for him. If he wants some fully moderated board though….this is not it. This board is more a communal policing thing…… and the cops take a while to respond. 🙂

  111. pheloniusphish says:

    Regarding the taser being a lethal weapon. In my opinion, if it is used on a cop it is. once a cop is incapacitated the criminal now has access to his handgun and whatever is in his car, which could be a fully automatic rifle. Plus the cop is now helpless and in the hands of a criminal that he can identify.

    • steveccnv says:

      That was the other thing they brought up in the video.

    • stangerx says:

      Couldn’t you same about a rock? And there was a 2nd cop there with a weapon ready to pull.

      • pheloniusphish says:

        You could do the same with a rock, but now there is no doubt you are attacking the cop and a rock is a straight up lethal weapon. Don’t know how the other cop being there affects it. In the split second he had to make that shoot/no shoot decision, I doubt he even remembered the other cop was there.

      • stangerx says:

        Other cop was an armed guy who had his back. Agree on the split second decision part, but that comes into play in a lot of these situations for cops. Not supposed to shoot a fleeing suspect though. What they taught cops in my county at least (and law is clear). Only difference here is the taser.

She is 56 and single. An attractive woman. Met this great guy who was head over heals for her. Really good dude/human being. After a couple weeks he made a comment about Biden not being able to think and speak off the cuff and it concerned him if he were elected. They had the political talk. She really liked him but found out he voted for Trump in 2016 and was undecided for 2020. She called off the relationship. Told him it was not going to work out.

    • stangerx says:

      And that is when it gets stupid. Kelllyanne and George Conway are still together…. even if wonder how she keeps her job. Agree to disagree is a good thing.

    • Mike E. says:

      There you have it. That’s exactly what I was talking about earlier. You can’t accept someone who has some different beliefs than you? That’s some shallow stupid shit and that woman will probably be alone for a long time until she changes that.

  115. steveccnv says:

    It says on the far left leaning wikipedia that OAN is a far right group, but OAN says they tell you the news and let you decide.

    So which is it?

    • stangerx says:

      Never thought of wikipedia as a far left place. It’s open source, which has its own problems but not a political bent. OAN is to the right of Fox News though. Think everyone agrees on that.

  116. The Flying Pig says:

    It’s always relative

    I think OAN is far right and I don’t think wiki is political
    (Isn’t everything on wiki user submitted?)

    But I’m on the left of you, so what else am I going to believe

  117. bailbondmike says:

    So OAN = CNN. Got it! I will just keep tuning in to where the real news is reported. FACEBOOK!!!! 😉

    • The Flying Pig says:

      No
      Fox = CNN
      OAN = reading a book on acid

      Lol

      Just kidding guys

      • stangerx says:

        Trump loves his OAN. Every chance he gets calls on their folks, but then he’s been mad at Fox News lately. And plus he loves his conspiracy theories.

    • stangerx says:

      Dimitri, Igor and Leonid do a great job on the news there. 🙂

    • steveccnv says:

      Lol at the CNN reporter in Minneapolis saying the protests are mostly peaceful, while the building behind him is in full flames.

  118. Randy says:

    Here’s my thing. Will changing the shape of a bottle of syrup actually do anything? Is it going to change laws? Change how police behave? No. It won’t. All it’s gonna do is keep me from slowly and gently rubbing my thumb back and forth over those fine chocolate boobs when I pour syrup on my pancakes. But, does anybody care about my feelings? Is anybody worried about how this change will affect ME and my Sunday morning pancakes? Hell no. I’m an old white guy. My feelings don’t matter.

  119. bailbondmike says:

    MikeE., My wife’s friend lives a very lonely life. She is attractive, own’s her home. She is a GS-11 though not sure what level but she makes damn good money. If we have a get together, she wants to know who is coming. If a certain other friend of my wife (Trump lover) is coming, she will say she is coming then no shows. My wife will try to call her for a day or 2 and she will ghost my wife. Then have been best friends for 47 years.

  120. ocalarob says:

    Kayleigh McEnany is great!

    • stangerx says:

      You’d think she’d be really hot, but girl has crazy eyes. Check out on a TV interview sometime….. takes her from a 9 to a 7 .

      • pheloniusphish says:

        Nothing wrong with crazy as long as you can get out of the country quickly.

      • stangerx says:

        Think you can do without a passport….. but get what you mean. Met a few women whose ex-husbands were like “she’s all yours” and actively hoping worked out.

  121. Mike E. says:

    Stanger – Do you mean this one?

  122. Mike E. says:

    BBM – That’s part of the problem with certain people. They can’t overlook certain things in a person, which is really their own problem, not everyone else’s. I’m seeing more and more of that type of behavior and I think it’s pretty sad.

  123. D says:

    Kayleigh McEnany is pretty but i think she has a dick, she definitely holds herself like she has a set of hairy balls on her.

  124. steveccnv says:

    Do you often feel that way? What is it about hot chicks that makes you think they have dicks😉

  125. D says:

    Its funny at my job we have two breakrooms int he main building, and up at the front, closer to the executive hallway, its generally on OAN or Fox, in the back near the programming area is almost always on CNN or MSNBC. Interesting study in sociology there im sure.

    Ill watch whatever one is on, i parse out the information from the doctrine, but they have their little wars with the TV and the channels, especially in the front one. where you do have more of a mix of people there. The back break-room is generally similarly minded individuals lol. They have even resorted to some of the executives, and upper management at the front breakroom actually child locking out CNN and MSNBC on the front TV lol. Its kinda funny.

    Anyways, i am kinda in the middle of both, so i use one sometimes and the other at other times. So i have seen about every reporter each of those networks have and if you wanna talk crazy eyes, the one that takes the cake out of all the channels is OAN’s Liz Wheeler. She actually reminds me a good bit of Tanny’s wife but she has full on crazy eyes

    • Mike E. says:

      Her eyes look less scary when her mouth is closed. She looks like a predator with those big teefers. Her eyes are pretty far apart so I think that just adds to it. I think Natalie Dormer is kinda like that. She’s pretty, but she can also look like one of the mutant chicks from Total Recall on Mars. lol

  126. Mike E. says:

    Liz Wheeler

    • steveccnv says:

      The eyes are just big, and accentuated by the think makeup.

    • D says:

      I think Mike is right, its that they are out wide and her eyes are elongates so she looks like a psycho to me. i also think the big teeth are part of it too, so nailed it again Mike. She is a bit crazy looking to me, i cant stand when she is on the TV. I dont watch the news at home really, i get most my news from the Internets, but when i at work and i take a quick break to grab a snack or whatever, and she is on, it like a train wreck, i have to look at her but she is a bit unnerving to watch for me.

  127. D says:

    Was reading up on a few thoughts on different trade possibilities and there is a guy i liked when he got drafted, and he is a local hid to this area. Justin Evans. He’s a solid safety prospect and TB is pretty loaded right now at Safety. If the buying price is as low as this person was suggesting (a day 3 pick) id trade for him and add to our S room. Rowe, Jones, and Evans would be an awesome trio for us. Let McCain be a guy who plays a little bit of everything in the secondary and then X, Jones and Iggy Mahogany playing the more defined CB roles, and thats a little hornets nest of a secondary.

  128. D says:

    She on the other had i find her eye to be memorizing, even though they are a little predator-like as well.

    You lucky fucker…. And yeah thats the wierd thing about her, all celebs seem to have some sort of skeleton and are either dicks in person or they are super wierd, have odd habits etc. She i havent ever heard anything negative about.

  130. Mike E. says:

    D – She’s got some mischief in them eyes . . .

    Natalie Dormer is pretty hot
    I like her crazy look

    That’s a really bad pic of Liz Wheeler
    She’s better looking than that

    LOL Rock – I feel shame

  134. Rockphin says:

    HUH? Did I lose everyone? You all stuck watching my reply above? LOL

    • Mike E. says:

      She’s a pan sexual. I had a pan out this morning to make my sunny eggs. She probably would have been turned on.

  135. Rockphin says:

    Pan from the Greek πᾶν, pan, meaning “all”, “of everything”, or “involving all members” of a group.

    Are you saying she is in to orgies?

  136. Rockphin says:

    A little older, but no less cool, I was the electrician on site at the studio when they filmed Striptease and got to stand around and see Demi Moore naked. (and a bunch of other women)

  137. stangerx says:

    Rock — why you going with the blow up avi? We already did that right? Or is it honor of Demi? 🙂

    Ill admit to it. Ever had a person who, i mean isnt what you consider your type but you are just flat out captivated by their look. She is one of those for me. Milyana Vanytrub is as well, though her’s isnt a exotic look, hers is classic cute.

    That Adam Gase charm

    Jets All-Pro safety Jamal Adams has officially requested permission to seek a trade.

    The Jets have not yet granted him that. pic.twitter.com/7k45CG8mH8

    — Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) June 18, 2020

    ——————————————–
    I had heard they might look at trading him and there were legit reason given, like the fact that Adam Gase doesn’t know what to do with talent lol. But i mean, that team isnt close enough that a guy like Adams isnt wasting away on that team. If he wouldn’t cost us a first, i might would be in on him, but id rather try to get a trade with the Bucs for Justin Evans and it cost a 3rd day pick, than blow a first on Adams and have to turn around and pay him 15-20 per in an extension right off.

    • D says:

      There will never be a better, i dont think. Mahomes seems to me to have a chance to change that argument a little but i doubt very much he makes it that long that successful. Not to mention, the era Dan did it in was a much harder era as a passer so there will always be an asterick or some sort.

      • steveccnv says:

        Yeah, when a 300 yard game was special. Before they put in the DB cheat rule.

        Rules changed, because of the cheats. Tuck rule, enforcement of 5 yard chuck rule, hitting Brady low in the pocket, calling roughing the passer when Brady is in the pocket whether hit or not…

  144. steveccnv says:

    “Large plumes of Saharan Dust routinely track into the Atlantic Ocean from late spring into early fall,” she says. “Every so often, when the dust plume is large enough and trade winds set up just right, the dust can travel thousands of miles across the Atlantic and into the US.”

    Though the dust is a visible indication there will be little to no tropical development, it isn’t the main reason why a tropical system will not form when it is present.

    “The dust is the visible part of the reduced tropical development potential area,” explains CNN meteorologist Chad Myers. “It is the dry air and additional vertical wind shear along with the dust that are the driving factors in limiting tropical storm development.”

    Vertical wind shear is the change of wind speed and direction with height. For a hurricane to form, it needs little to no wind shear and a very moist atmosphere.

    So, for the next week, don’t expect the Atlantic to see it’s fourth named storm. Instead, by this time next week, people living and visiting the Caribbean and Gulf Coast beaches will be in for some spectacular sunrises and sunsets.

  145. D says:

    I dont have a photo bucket account or id upload the ones i took while at Cape San Blas you can see the wildly different colors you can get during different times and angles the sun is hitting those particles from.

  146. D says:

    hmm lemme see if the ones i took and uploaded to google are ones ya can get to.

  147. wyoming85 says:

    Fishing wasn’t to bad either!

  148. steveccnv says:

    Even without Brady we lose to the cheats in Tua’s debut, says EASports simulated game. Tua sacked 6 times and picked on the last play of the game.

    They’re still sucking the cheats dicks.

  149. Randy says:

    You can’t compare QBs from different eras. These whiny ass little pencil necked geeks that play now would shit themselves if they had to take the kind of hits QBs used to. They’d also whine incessantly about how their WRs are bring held constantly. It’s easy to look great when you’re just playing toss and catch. Man I hate QBs. Pretty boy prima donnas.

    I’m glad to see you have given up pork in favor of those bastards in the sea

    Keep after them and know that you have the support of porkkind behind each catch

  156. bailbondmike says:

    Speaking of, those 2 pork shoulders I smoked the other day turned out amazing!

    • son of a son of a shula says:

      Must be something in the pork lately, did one yesterday and it was the absolute best one ever.

    • bailbondmike says:

      I’ve had so much pork, I may be turning into one of piggy’s cousins. I had BBQ sandwiches with pickles and coleslaw on that night. Grits with sautéed smoked pork on top with eggs for breakfast the next day. Then had smoked pork with rice and black bean burritos with some toco bell chipotle sauce. Then made smoked pork quesadillas today at work. lol

  157. steveccnv says:

    Watched Coppa Italia yesterday, thank God, from a taped broadcast with FF.

    It was the championship game with Ronaldo’s Juventus team vs Napoli. Napoli sat back and played D the entire game. The score was 0-0 after regulation, then straight into penalty kicks, which Napoli won.

    It was the stupidest form of determining a champion I’ve ever seen. I think the NFL and other things in our lives should be careful with change. Be careful what you wish for.

  165. Phindog says:

    They both shred but there is no way a 10 year old would be able to not only feel the blues but play it amazingly as well. Fucking amazing !! Oh he can play so much more than the blues. He will be the next guitar sensation. 🎸🎼🎼

    The only guy in that band without tons of hair is the guys you can barely see!
    The rest of the band makes up for his baldness

      There’s a difference between getting it and having to go to the hospital because of it, and that’s what we haven’t heard.

      • steveccnv says:

        People without underlying issues don’t have to worry about it, especially people under 40. The older coaches should take more precautions.

  171. ocalarob says:

    Almost forgot friday night.

  172. ocalarob says:

    I had seen a press conference where dems are asking kaleigh mkany why police used tear gas on innocent protesters while they were getting bombed with bricks?

    • ocalarob says:

      She never asked this but i was wondering how do you differentiate between the peaceful protesters and the brick throwers?

      • TryPod says:

        Nuke ’em all!

      • steveccnv says:

        Before they push the crowds back they blast out warnings, if you don’t move on your own, then you are subject to some type of force.

        If you choose not to listen to the warning you are no longer a peaceful protester, you’re contributing to the violence.

  173. steveccnv says:

    We had 349 rushing attempts last year, 49ers had 498, Texans 434. I expect that will go up to over 400.

    How does anyone see the Carrie’s split up? Howard had 119 in 10 games, Breida had 123 in 13.

    Dolphins Wire has our 3 deepest units as CB, interior DL, interior OL.

    I’d say CB, WR, LB, and even QB 4th (Dolphins Wire had QB considerations too), but having controversy, when I believe the 3 I listed are legit deep strengths is a good thing. Any team can have controversy with this topic, but if you don’t really have good depth, it means nothing, like are past several years rosters.

    TE is our weakest depth position, but Gailey isn’t a big TE user. Safety is deep, but not great quality, RB has quality at the top, but no depth. OT depth is rather weak, but if Hunt starts and plays well I’ll change that.

    • Mike E. says:

      We may have depth on the interior line but we don’t know if we quality depth yet. I freaking hope we do

      “Gesicki lined up in the slot 461 times versus just 159 times in-line in 2019.”
      ——————————————————
      I didn’t realize he lined up in the slot that much. He could actually excel in this offense instead of flounder. I can see empty backfields with Parker, Williams, Wilson, Gesicki and Grant or Breida.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      Would be great if he and Parker just picked up where they left off
