When I first heard the news that the Dolphins waived/injured our 5th RD pick Curtis Weaver I was furious. Sometimes I can’t help myself, I think “same old Dolphins”. I thought for $670K we could have put the kid on I/R and next year we’d have ready to go and see what he can do. Take a look at the picture up above, the dude is flexing and my modest biceps are bigger than that dudes, he looks soft. Still, Weaver was productive and many draft experts gave us high marks on that pick, a great value in the 5th RD. The Browns, who claimed Weaver have put him on I/R. To be fair, I thought Flores looked especially and unusually uncomfortable when asked about Curtis Weaver. Flores is pretty quick and direct and during the interview, he labored to answer why Weaver was cut which leads me to think there’s something more than we may ever find out. In any case, Weaver is a Brown now and you know what that means to me. (I’ll spare you the expletives)
Kalen Ballage’s career as a Miami Dolphin is also over. He leaves much like one other promising RB draft pick of the past left, in disappointing fashion. Daniel Thomas never fulfilled his potential and Kalen Ballage who I once thought could be our version of David Johnson “light” yet turned out to be David Johnson 20,000,000 gallons of helium. So with the waiving of Curtis Weaver and then the release of Kalen Ballage, the Dolphins signed DB Deatrick Nichols and claimed RB Salvon Ahmed, a former Washington Husky RB. I can’t blame Kalen Ballage completely because our organization doesn’t have a ton of cred evaluating RB’s. We traded away Ajayi (Gase), we traded away Kenyan Drake (who is flourishing with the Cards) and now gave up on Kalen Ballage. If Ballage does well elsewhere, that will amp up this feeling.
The camp battles so far are encouraging. Big Robert Hunt and Solomon Kindley are making noise, winning some battles and losing others but making a splash nonetheless. I like that last years 3rd RD pick Michael Deiter is getting a lot of reps at center and is most likely being groomed as the replacement for Ted Karras who is here on a 1 YR show me contract. I can actually see light at the end of the tunnel with this O-line. Eventually, I see Jackson – Flowers – Deiter – Kindley – Hunt, or maybe Jesse Davis continues his elevated play at RT and holds off Hunt and Hunt moves inside to RG and then Kindley is a very nice depth player to have. The QB’s have all had ups and downs and rookie phenom Tua Tagovailoa is not immune to that. This is expected, anyone who thought Tua was just going to ride onto the field on a unicorn and throw rainbow TD’s every throw was due for disappointment. He’s just getting started and I’m sure there is a lot the kid is trying to absorb at this point. He’s got talent, let him get up to speed. Honestly, I expect some play from mostly everyone with the limited amount of work players and coaches are able to get in. Hopefully as the season progresses, things will look better. If that happens, that’s a good thing. I think teams that have mostly the same personnel and coaches back have a clear advantage over teams with many new p-layers, new coaches and new systems. The Dolphins check all of those boxes so keep your early expectation low.
it’s rather funny how the left scrutinize trump for every little thing they find inappropriate, if he pissed in the woods he shouldnt be president.
meanwhile you have these hard left democrats supporting riots and death, attacking federal courts, defunding police, people are fleeing from dem run cities.
and you have people that are ready to empower these lunatics.
why are they so blind to this?
Kong and blonde taking his bananas home? Makes me sad, but I get it.
Maybe ocalarob, it’s not about “seeing” especially if you’re blindly seeing only what you want to see.
Try listening to the Woodward tapes and Trump’s own voice/words. Maybe, you will “see” things clearer.
it’s very difficult to understand your point of view and get past your insults at the same time.
i think you have mental issues, so i avoid you.
maybe you should try to explain yourself face to face so when you hurl your insults i can respond appropriately. i have met you, at the time i didn’t think you were this fckn stupid.
please disregard anything i post as that’s what i do to you.
Then, they learned, adjusted, and mitigated.
Kind a like the travel ban on China letting an additional 40k in after the ban. Oh yeah, but it’s ok to let Europeans fly to NY. Fuck NY and AOC. LMFAO.
The 40K were American citizens!
He was a little slow on Europe. By a week IMHO
I’ll agree 100% with your last sentence! 😉
Those 40K from China were American citizens. Remember when Trump got sued by California for trying to keep Americans that were positive on that cruise ship in San Fran?
I wonder why crime rates in most of the nation was experiencing the lowest crime rates in 50 years in January 2017. Now they’re up.
I wonder why illegal immigration was lowest in 50 years in January 2017. Now they’re up.
I wonder why we have only about 4.5% of the world pop., but 25% of deaths. Listen to the tapes. CDC is now the arbiter of truth? The FDA, stated that if the CDC was a private business, they would have shut it down.
I wonder why racial tensions have peaked since January 2017. Then, blame 25 million protesters for the few (relative to the total) looters, arsonists that commit lawless acts and deserve to be punished. If you support lawful protesters, you’re deemed an anarchist and socialist. Our country was founded on protest. Duh?
Some here, don’t even care Trump had help from Russia in getting elected even after a Republican led Senate judiciary committee said he did and more, BUT no collusion. Hilarious.
LOL….Truth, you can’t handle the truth? I’m trying to find it. All I have to do is ask ocalarob or one of the anti-anti-Trumpists???? Oh my.
Cult-like, conspiracy theorists are in full bloom these days. Yay!
Is the country really better off with this divisive rhetoric Trump has spewed since his inauguration January 2017? Not in my opinion.
Oh, let me grab my mask, this the short list of why I don’t think we are better off.
Try listening to the Woodward tapes and Trump’s own voice/words.
wouldn’t know where to find that. and what does that have to do with running a country, is that more in the line scrutiny? if he pissed in the woods he shouldnt be president.
go away you fckn moron
I thought you listened to FOX. My mistake, try another news source.
This blog disgusts me. I thought this was a site of stand up people, yet theres a lone voice crying in the wilderness against evil that is Norway. I cant support a place without morals. How can the rest of you stay silent??????
I Stand with Norway!
This is the kind of sub-human response I expect from a Jets blog, but not here. Where is your soul?
LOL — those Norwegians are coming for us and they are trained in their evil ways young.
as for the virus, nobody could control that and no one new the level of which it has reached, pelosi and other dems were supporting running around in the streets yet dems want to point the finger at trump.
if trump downplayed the virus at the time it was a mistake. a mistake made by the dems as well.
there’s a difference between making a mistake and downright breaking the law which the dems have repeatedly done.
a viscous attempt to gain power at any means which have cost lives and businesses. the people spoke in 2016 and the dems are disregarding what the people want.
it’s like the dems are hitler! it doesn’t matter what the people want to them.
you are suppose to set aside your differences and support the POTUS.
that’s the american way.
You crack me up. 2.8 million popular vote advantage. That means people.
Finally, we can talk about electoral votes and why we still have it in this day and age.
Seems antiquated to me and not a reflection of modern times.
Ape – I don’t know why you don’t like Norway….it’s the land of 6 foot tall blonde women! Whose husbands are away on the oil rigs for 6 months at a time even! And they are VERY friendly….
Definitely like their women, Swede’s too.

LOL, I really wanted to drop my favorite line from Adventures in Babysitting right there, but I actually showed some restraint. It’s a brave new world.
I have to admit Norse mythology is pretty cool in all its forms. Although isn’t ‘Norse’ that whole region? I don’t know the answer to that. If Thor is actually a sneaky Norwegian, he does lose a little bit of his luster.
Hey, since Thor vies for the title “Strongest Avenger”, I’d think you would be on my side, Hulkster.
I name my cats after norse gods lol. I have a Thor, Loki, Freya, and Heimdall, and i had a Fenrir (Fen) but he passed unfortunately.

This is the kind of sub-human response I expect from a Jets blog, but not here. Where is your soul?
I see. It’s in the possession of Satan.
Yes, Yes it is!
You guys are dicks for posting after this picture. Now I have to scroll up to get to it🤔
Incidentally Stanger, being called a RINO is, in my opinion kind of a badge of honor. Generally the people that call you a RINO need to be more of one themselves. I am pretty much considered a RINO because my social stances aren’t hard line right. To me it says im doing something right to not be part of the far right wing group. So again, be proud of the title IMO. We need more people that neither side wants, because those are the ones that actually care about everyone.
RINOs are only good for grinding up and using in traditional Chinese medicine. I’m not attacking you, just insulting you.
It’s ok i took it as an insult…..lol
Thanks D — but way I figure it I didn’t leave the R the R left me. Just the same as when was a proud Reaganite.
I’m also not surprised by Phelon’s behavior, nor his support of the unmitigated degeneracy that are Norwegians. How dare he insert himself in the conversation of a guy inserting himself in someone else’s conversation?
I was going for fair and balanced to counter you NWO, anti-blonde fakers!
I’m NWO, but I’m the good NWO. Wolfpack 4 life.
I mean he’s just a dude playing a dude pretending to be another dude who supports Norway, and perhaps is Norwegian (didn’t delve too far into the psychology, needed to leave myself a ladder to climb back out).
Your head movies make my eyes rain.
Am I the only one that watches “Whale Wars” and roots for the Whalers?
Probably lol. I know what your saying though, sometimes the anti-whalers get on my nerves as much as the slaughter of whales. I more kinda hope they accomplish their goals but a few of the fall overboard and are eventually consumed by a whale as some sorta ironic end to their hippies lives lol.
I dont really see people here as truly entrenched in ideology of any political side, as much as i see a bunch of people completely fed up with one side or the other. Minor exceptions maybe, but in general, what ya hear comments about aren’t political positions on subjects as much as you hear talk of “Orange man bad” or “Crazy Commie Collective”. Just food for thought, but when i watch the convos, im not really seeing a lot of disagreement on the right and wrong in ethical terms, but rather one sides responses to it vs another. Perhaps in that observation is the true answer to politics, stop voting for or against a side, and start voting with your hearts and conscience and yeah maybe you wind up voting for the same dude, but for the right reasons.
I agree on some of that. It does seem like people are agreeing on things, but then they disagree in the response and carry on with some tangent that’s half disagreed on. That’s why I said we should start with what we agree on, then take it one item at a time, but that never got started.
How can you really have a constructive discussion otherwise? I don’t think you can. Even in a political debate they don’t want to do that, they just want to spew their own propaganda.
NEW BLOG UP!!!
The Newton experiment in NE seems like a last ditch effort to salvage the season amidst all they’ve endured this offseason. They’ve put all their eggs in the basket of a inaccurate running QB, coming off of an injured season. It could work, but I wouldn’t bet on it.
They do also have the belicheat factor, but how’s that going to work without a QB? Even the times Brady didn’t play, they at least had a decent backup, some receivers and a D.
