2021 NFL Draft – Less than 3 weeks away!

Draft day is approaching very quickly, so much so that I can already envision the arguments about who we took, when we took them and why we didn’t take this guy or that guy. It’s coming. Chris Grier and Brian Flores and the Miami Dolphins Scouting team will be questioned, ridiculed and revered by others all after 4 days of the draft in which the Dolphins currently hold 8 selections, starting with picks 5,18 in RD 1, 36 and 50 in RD 2, 81 in RD 3, 156 in RD 4 and then a long wait until picks 231 and 258 in RD 7. As usual, you can almost certainly expect some movement by our team in the draft, we have a history of wheeling and dealing, moving up back and all around at different junctures of the draft.

I think for the most part, the majority here understand that we need to help our QB by giving him better weapons on offense, and that could mean at a variety of positions including the trenches to give him better throwing lanes as well as keeping him healthy, more talent and reliability at receiver whether that receiver is a WR or TE and a durable ballcarrier who can also be a quality receiver out of the backfield. An easy way to have the QB improve is to give him better players around, see Ryan Tannehill and the Tennessee Titans for proof of such. We also have needs on defense but we made two key moves to make us better up the middle. First move was trading for ILB Benardrick McKinney to pair him with #55 Jerome Baker. We then signed FA DT John Jenkins. We do have AVG and Vince Biegel coming back on the outside but Biegel is coming off a torn achilles. He showed some promise before the injury, but whether the Dolphins are going to count on him remains to be seen. We need to get pressure from the edge, so I’d expect us to be looking at either an OLB or OLB/DE tweener who can rush the passer both standing up and with his hand in the ground.

Who are the most likely targets? I see mocks split for pick #6 with the usual suspects, WR Ja’Marr Chase, WR, DeVonta Smith, TE Kyle Pitts and OL Penei Sewell and Rashawn Slater. Once you get past our first pick, things as expected get more muddled. #18 is all over the map, from RB Najee Harris to EDGE rushers Kwity Paye, Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, Gregory Rousseau and Jaelan Phillips. Who we take at #6 will undoubtedly affect who we take next. If we don’t take a receiver with our first pick, say we go with an OL then I’m inclined to believe our next pick will be a WR. I can’t see going forward with the WR corps we currently have without finding a dependable, reliable high talent WR in this draft. I suppose receivers like Kadarius Toney or Rashod Bateman or Terrace Marshall could be the guy but I think we go for top tier talent here and either Chase, Smith or Pitts is the first pick. I’ll get more into the rest of the draft next week, and I’m sure there will be even more speculation, rumor and innuendo to discuss next week.

  1. son of a son of a shula says:

    I could see us trading up from 18 because if we get Pitts/Chase at 6 we could go after Parsons, but if we took Parsons at 6 then we might be able to move up and get Smith or Waddle.

    • mf13ss says:

      THAT’S what I’ve been talking about, YUP! My only trouble with that? We’d better hope one of the top RBs are still on the board @ R2P4 for us.

    • Tim Knight says:

      I agree. I don’t think Parsons gets past the Pats at #15. They loaded up on offense in FA.

    • stangerx says:

      Doubting we go Parsons at #6. We could either trade down from # 6 or trade up from #18 for Parsons. We stick at #6 and has to be a pass catcher.

  2. son of a son of a shula says:

    Fields gets the Son seal of approval. I like his game stej will fuck up and take the “faggy” Wilson. Good for us. 9 ers will rock with Fields.
    I still like Mac too he’s an NFL QB his only problem is he might be 10 years too late. The ball comes out and he drives the ball downfield he throws 35-40 yard passes on a rope.

  3. son of a son of a shula says:

    I would take him at 50 and be happy despite my love for the brisket. Brissett’s biggest problems are the same as Tua. Throw the fucking ball it has to come out even if you throw it out of bounds, it’s gotta come out.

    Well you know I’ve been high on Parsons for months. I think he’s exactly what we need. I really believe he’s a guy we can move around in our multiple defense.
    YES… I know. I recall you asking me about Parsons a few months back. And it was YOU who got me thinking about the whole opt-out matters… meaning, how will scouts react to as much, without having seen one of these guys on the gridiron for over a year.

    As far as I’m concerned, you were the first on Parsons on this blog. Me? I thank you for having asked me, but I was still in ‘what does this year off mean for these players?’ mode. Honestly? I didn’t think Parsons would kill his Pro-Day… but he certainly DID!

    Props to you, Tim!

  5. son of a son of a shula says:

    Oh and BTW you argumentative fucks lol we don’t trade with San Fran unless Philly is already in place they said as much. Grier insisted with both teams to keep it quiet they said as much. We never wanted 12 but got to 6 by landing on “Free Parking”.

  6. Tim Knight says:

    I’ve said many times I would not care if we took Parsons at #6. I know it won’t be popular but I don’t care. I think he’s going to be a pro bowler and all pro. There is even more WR depth than there is edge and LB.

    • son of a son of a shula says:

      I want him too. He is so fucking fast. Question the pro day forty but his speed shows up like nobody else. Would love to have him.

      • Tim Knight says:

        He’s got that prototype size to at 6-3 245. I don’t care if his 40 was more like 4.45 than 4.39 but he looks sub 4.5 which is just fine.

  7. son of a son of a shula says:

    Piggs, I miss Landry too we should have never let him get away. I call it the Gase effect.
    What do we need more than anything right now?
    Exactly we need Jarvis.
    Flores wouldn’t have let him get away. Never misses a game and balls out every week.
    He would have become one of the greatest draft picks we ever made.

  8. son of a son of a shula says:

    Jabril Cox should become a Dolphin in a couple of weeks. That’s exciting!

    • Tim Knight says:

      I like Jamin Davis too.

      • son of a son of a shula says:

        Tryon from Washington too
        But what I like about Cox is that he’s a fast coverage LB that could stay on the field and be an in the box Safety without losing anything in coverage.

      • Tim Knight says:

        I like Tryon too. Just remember Cox is what Baker is. Baker rarely leaves the field.

  9. son of a son of a shula says:

    I got a nanny nanny boo boo in I think this argument is over lol

  10. Tim Knight says:

    Because of the draft capital we have this year at the top, I would not mind packaging picks from next year to move around and get players we really dig. We need to get that next step started this year.

    • son of a son of a shula says:

      Agreed. There is some elite speed we can capitalize on and we need to and then you gotta go. Gitterdone (boy I miss him)
      You put Parsons, Pitts/Chase and Harris/Williams on this team look out 👀

  11. Tim Knight says:

    Remember Flores is a defensive coach and Grier is on board with defense as well.

    Excuse me it should read

    No way Landry belongs on that list,
    We have a better draft pick than Landry currently playing on this team, that would be Howard,
    How bout Tim Bowens or Richmond Webb?
    Landry isn’t even close

  13. ocalarob says:

    This nagging voice keeps whispering in my ear that Miami wants Devonte Smith at #6.

    Not sure if he cks all the boxes but i think he cks their boxes, elusive playmaker who has chemistry with Tua

    • Rhino says:

      man, I really enjoyed that highlight reel!!! BBM has posted reels on Williams since mid season for college ball, but with draft a few weeks away this is starting to feel REAL. lol. He is more powerful than Etienne and faster than Harris.

    Spending the day touring Nova Southeastern U with my son in the morning with my son and hitting the Fort Lauderdale beach in the afternoon. Saw Florida Southern College up in Lakeland yesterday

    • steveccnv says:

      He’s an obvious fit, but what’s the motivation for putting it out there that Flores loves Parsons?

      Is he stating the obvious, since it seems to be a perfect fit or is it a smokescreen?

      Flores doesn’t tell everyone who they like, last year that person was Herbert

  23. steveccnv says:

    I only put PII on the internet, when I want the world to know, but since yours is already out there…

    Happy Birthday Ken

  24. bailbondmike says:

    Happy B-Day Ken!!!!!!!!

  25. steveccnv says:

    If Smith’s fragility isn’t an issue, he makes the most sense, especially if Fuller is resigned next year, because of his ability to get open and smoothness.

    WRs that are smooth play faster than they are, because they don’t give you a chance to react, once they make their move they’re gone.

    He seemed like he was toying with defenders at times last year, he’d run past, like they were standing still.

    You could make a case for all 4 of these receivers and why we moved back to 6, and might move again to 8 or 9.

    Pitts would be insurance for Gesicki, Waddle for Fuller, Chase is a little like our top 3 now, but Smith is in a class by himself.

    Not saying Smith is better, just that he’s different, so something we don’t have

    • steveccnv says:

      With that said, and if how the team feels, then maybe we don’t want QB4 taken before 6, because it may remove a trade partner.

      Best thing to happen before 6 is Sewell taken IMO

  26. steveccnv says:

    Everything keeps going back to, whatever happens at 6, we’ll still be in a good position.

    Say we trade back to 9 or 10, since it’s now out there that Flores loves Parsons, maybe someone jumps us and takes him, leaving us another receiver.

    Dallas, Jones, seems to love Pitts, we could drop down to 10 and get some nice motivated compensation, if he’s there at 6.

    Word seems to be, if you want to move up talk to the Fins, but not you Belicheat

  27. ocalarob says:

    1a Parsons
    1b Oweh

  28. steveccnv says:

    Are you saying Parsons at 6 and Owen at 18?

    That could work, but I’d rather have O fire power

    • ocalarob says:

      Defensive coach, trade back a little pick up extra picks and get Parsons, you may be able to do the same with 18 and still get the edge guy.

      fill out your O power later on in the draft.

  29. pheloniusphish says:

    From Robert A. Heinlein’s “Friday” copyright 1982.

    What are the marks of a sick culture?
    ”It is a bad sign when the people of a country stop identifying themselves with the country and start identifying with a group. A racial group. Or a religion. Or a language. Anything, as long as it isn’t the whole population.”
    “…the population must lose faith in both the police and the courts.” “Elementary. Go on.” “Well…high taxation is important and so is inflation of the currency and the ratio of the productive to those on the public payroll. But that’s old hat; everybody knows that a country is on the skids when its income and outgo get out of balance and stay that way—even though there are always endless attempts to wish it away by legislation. But I started looking for little signs, what some call silly-season symptoms. For example, did you know that it is against the law here to be naked outside your own home? Even in your own home if anybody can see in?” “Rather difficult to enforce, I suspect. What significance do you see in it?” “… It seems to me that any law that is not enforced and can’t be enforced weakens all other laws.”
    “Sick cultures show a complex of symptoms such as you have named…but a dying culture invariably exhibits personal rudeness. Bad manners. Lack of consideration for others in minor matters. A loss of politeness, of gentle manners, is more significant than is a riot.”

  30. bailbondmike says:

    So hard for me to do a mock and not trade down from #18.

    6 Micah Parsons LB • Penn State
    18 Teven Jenkins RT • Oklahoma State
    36 Javonte Williams HB • North Carolina
    50 Jabril Cox LB • LSU
    81 Marquez Stevenson WR • Houston
    156 Michal Menet C • Penn State
    231 Tarron Jackson ED • Coastal Carolina
    258 Matt Bushman TE • BYU

    Hunt/Jenkins on the right side would be sick. Substitute Trey Hill at OC and Kindley to LG we would have one nasty/mauling OL.

    Parsons will be awesome opposite AVG! Looking at Jabril Cox, his versatility in our defense would be limitless with his coverage ability.

    First, Jabril Cox at North Dakota State:

    Then, at LSU. Did not miss a beat on the biggest stage in college football:

  31. steveccnv says:

    He’s a project, avg tackler at best, lacks instincts to be a great LB, but has some coverage skills, so there’s something to work with.

    Maybe at 81, if we didn’t have any other needs

    • steveccnv says:

      He could be a 3rd down LB his first 2 years in the NFL, but until he gets more strength and gets in the film room JAG.

      He looks more like a seam threat TE

  32. ocalarob says:

    i’d bet we trade back again, we have too much going on early and not enough in the later rnds.
    there may be a team that wants to move up in the 2nd for a 2 next year like the saints did with us

    • steveccnv says:

      I’d possibly trade down with both 1sts, depending on how the board falls, but not in the 2nd.

      Somewhere between 8 and 10 seems to be our sweet spot, then down to around 25 to get Rousseau.

      History tells me we should be able to get Williams at 36.

      Top 4 wr + Rousseau and Williams, to go along with some extra draft capital and I’d be a happy camper

  33. ocalarob says:

    two weeks to go, then we can get back to politics.

    did i mention the left sucks?

  34. steveccnv says:

    T minus 341

  35. bailbondmike says:

    Steve, my knocks on on Cox are he needs to get better at getting off blocks and better in pursuit.

    The draft is not deep at edge or LB. He was the best I saw at #50 this go around. Ossai went at #45. Only other best option I had was Carlos Basham and he is more like a 4-3 DE than an OLB/Edge type.

    You are not going to find an elite LB/Edge at #50 this draft really. I was just thinking versatility.

    • steveccnv says:

      Knock on wood?

      Rousseau after a trade back in the 1st or another Edge like Oweh or Ojulari, then RB at 36 and we won’t need any more front 7 guys, go after a C or S at 50

  36. steveccnv says:

    Assuming we get some extra picks from trading down in 1st.

    You never hit on all your draft picks in a year, so would you rather trade up after the 3rd round, so the guy taken is a better prospect or keep all the picks, with the thinking 1 of the may stick?

  37. bailbondmike says:

    Steve, my biggest fear is Harris and Williams both going between #25(Steelers) and #35(Falcons). Falcons desperately need a RB. Etienne may be more their flavor though since they like to open things up.

  38. ocalarob says:

    I doubt we do anything at #6 other than take a player whomever that may be, we gave Philly too much for that spot, if they trade back out without getting a kings ransom that wouldn’t look very good. at 18 depending on who they are targeting, unless they are targeting multiple players that shiny new toy may be hard to resist.

  39. ocalarob says:

    depending on what atlanta & cincy do that #6 pick may be worth a kings ransom, as there may be 2 out of the 5 first rnd qbs available there,

    who wants a QB?

  40. ocalarob says:

    I sure hope Philly gets our #32 pick next year, Otherwise there may be a hot seat available in Davie FL

  41. ocalarob says:

    with the 36th pick in the NFL draft the dolphins select………Trey Hill, C/G, Georgia

    and the crowd goes wild!

  42. steveccnv says:

    Checked to see who we could possibly upgrade with all these extra mid round picks people want us to get.

    On O assuming we take a WR and RB in the 1st 2 rounds, that leaves maybe 2 OL spots that might be upgraded.

    On D assuming we take an Edge/ OLB in 1st or 2nd, we could have 2 spots open on front 7 and 2 open on the backend.

    That gives us 6 possible upgrades after pick 36.

    Pick 50 and 81, will be on the team, after that, say we had in addition to our 3 current picks, 2 or 3 more picks, so 5 or 6 picks to replace Needham, Eguavon, Tom and Pankey.

    I guess we could use some upgrading, but is it going to improve the team this year?

  43. ocalarob says:

    is Safety a need? Trevon Moehrig, S, TCU

  44. ocalarob says:

    steveccnv says:
    April 15, 2021 at 12:42 pm
    You’d rather bolster the OL, then draft a lead back?
    i want a running game no doubt, but that also has to do with the OL as well, Hunt didn’t impress last year, we lost our center. and we have a good stable of RBs.
    sure it would be great to get a shiny RB and we may.
    realistically if i’m in flores & grier shoes, i do what i can to have manageable down and distance on 2nd. brown can do that for you if you have a solid OL.

  45. ocalarob says:

    how high are they on our current situation at OL. IDK that info but i would assume they have to pay attention to it in the draft. you can find Rbs anywhere, 6.0 220 lbs guys that can run are plentiful, it’s tough to find a 330LBS guy that can move so it makes sense to spend your resources there.

    • steveccnv says:

      OL is a difficult position to excel at as a rookie, even Tunsil didn’t start kicking it into gear at LT until about year 3.

      Hunt is good enough at RT, he has 2 more years to prove it, that’s when Flowers’ contract is up

  46. ocalarob says:

    Every year it’s the same, everyone wants that great RB or WR, the flashy guy over meat and potatoes, that guy can’t flash without meat and potatoes though.

  47. bailbondmike says:

    with the 36th pick in the NFL draft the dolphins select………Trey Hill, C/G, Georgia
    I am guessing that was sarcasm. Trey Hill is like rated OC5. He would be a good pickup at #156. He is a bull in the run game and is almost impossible to bull rush. He just doesn’t really have the athleticism to move over to OG. An OC is what he is.

  48. Mike E. says:

    I think Knocks on Cox was a Dr. Seuss book

  54. Tim Knight says:

    When military pilots have seen what they refer to as a tic tac shaped type of craft moving like nothing they have ever seen and hitting speeds beyond what we have that has to count for something. Obviously there are the other reports of what people have seen for years and the abductions etc.

    There is no way there is not other life in the universe other than Earth.

  55. ocalarob says:

    speaking from reality, there’s no such thing as a UFO from outer space, if you could travel 1/10th the speed of light which would be really fast, 67,000 MPH it would get you to our nearest star in 40 years, and all you would find there are scorched planets.
    the nearest confirmed goldilocks planet is in the trappest system 40 light years away.
    it would take 400 years traveling at 67,000 MPH.
    and we really don’t know if that could sustain life much less have intelligent beings.
    we’ve been sending out radio signals traveling at the speed of light for 100 years and have yet to hear any alien signal. if trappest system had intelligent life we would have heard them by now
    space is just too vast, UFO’s are fiction.

    • stangerx says:

      Would have to be craft that defy our current knowledge of physics. Why Sci Fi films talk about hyperspace and wormholes.

      • Tim Knight says:

        ^ ORob is speaking in human technology. What if there is a species that has been evolving for a million years or so? We’ve only been flying for little over 100 years. It wasn’t that long ago where horse and buggy and wooden ships was the the main source of travel.

      • stangerx says:

        Could send out unmanned probes if willing to wait decades or even centuries for the results. Other than that have to break the laws of physics as we know them. But like you point out at one point no one thought planes were possible. Einstein is just one guy after all.

      • Tim Knight says:

        Stanger, see my post below on unmanned.

    • bookman11 says:

      Agree: UFOs are fiction

  56. ocalarob says:

    can’t wait to see what the james webb telescope has to offer, i think it’s scheduled to launch in October 2021, you can travel thru space with that and you are still looking back in the past.
    you would see the trappest system as it was 40 years ago

  57. Tim Knight says:

    Another thing is, it most likely be life piloting UFOs but computer controlled just like we do with drones and sending technology to Mars. Artificial life (robots, droids etc.) could be what they send to other worlds. They don’t need to sustain life on their ventures and it doesn’t matter if they can’t return home. You gotta think outside of the box on this.

    • Tim Knight says:

      “it most likely WOULDN’T be life”

    • stangerx says:

      Can’t count out probes being sent out. It’s the time frame that is difficult for as to why. But who knows……… might be an alien race where their folks live for many centuries.

      • Tim Knight says:

        Right! Humans are only 200K years old or so and look at how much we’ve evolved in just the last 100+ years. We’re already living longer but it’s just a blip on the screen of time. Now think about another alien race that has been technologically advanced 10,000 times longer that or more.

  58. Ken says:

    This blog is like a box of chocolates

  59. Tim Knight says:

    I forgot to say Happy Birthday Ken!

  60. Ken says:

    Is anyone here denying Wedge’s existence?

  61. CavalierKong says:

    1/10 the speed of light is 18,600 miles per second, not 67,000 MPH. Other than that, basically agree with Rob.

    Mathematically speaking, there is almost certainly life elsewhere in the universe. And almost as certain are the odds it has never been here unless it created us.

    And happy B-day, Ken.

    • Ken says:

      🎂 😃

    • Tim Knight says:

      It’s probably not life coming here but technology from an alien race just like we’re starting to do on Mars. Think about them doing that 10,000 times longer than us just to throw out a figure. Just like when we see NASA high five each other in the control room when we have a landing, they did the same thing finally making it to Earth’s atmosphere. But maybe they just say nano nano. LOL

  62. CavalierKong says:

    The odds are just astronomically against it. First, We’ve only been capable of reasoning about the existence of UFOs for what? 15,000 years?

    What are the odds we happen to get some probe, manned or unmanned in such a ridiculously small period of time in terms of scale of the time the universe? It would be like looking at a spot for a split second anticipating a lightning strike, then seeing a lightning strike in that split second you were expecting it…except infinitely more improbable, lol.

    2nd, if an alien technology had the capability of finding us during the same period of time they were also in existence (another astronomically small chance) and had the ability to get here, why would they need to send all sorts of different flying saucers or whatever over and over again? They would obviously have the capability of knowing whatever they needed to without even having to send probes into our atmosphere over and over for us to discover.

    That is just two of so many things that would have to happen for UFOs to have been/be here, that it isn’t even worth the time to bring it up all the other stuff. The only argument that changes the odds IMO is if we were created by an alien race because it takes all those things out of it other than the tech to move between the stars.

    I think there is life out there, but I think the universe has either been created, or happened to develop, in a way that keeps us separated from each other.

    Think on this- We’ve been sending out radio waves into space for 100 years (very generously) in an attempt to make contact. We have approximately 50 stars that are within 16 light years of us. Those radio waves have only traveled far enough to reach maybe 100 of the closest stars or so.

    In the words of Douglas Adams- Space is big. Really big. You just won’t believe how vastly hugely mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it’s a long way down the road to the chemist, but that’s just peanuts to space. LOL

    • Tim Knight says:

      Kong, I’ve got some stuff to do so I’ll continue with this later on. Just remember our very primitive human existence is already sending stuff to another planet in Mars. When I said 10,000 that wasn’t years, that was x 100 since we’ve been technologically advanced. That would add up to a million years. Think about the knowledge and technology compared to ours. An alien race might be so out there of what we’re capable of comprehending at this time.

      • CavalierKong says:

        Cheers, Tim. 🙂

        I can accept the possibility of tech greater than our own that we can’t conceive of. There are a lot of other highly improbable things that would have to be true as well, like the time factor I mentioned. That is a big one. Or the fact that a technology that great would have no need to send clunky things into our atmosphere.

        I think we as humans just always have a need to make ourselves more important than we are, and belief that aliens are visiting us is just one manifestation of that. And that isn’t a knock on people that believe. I feel the same way about God and religion, so….

  63. Randy says:

    I still don’t get the love for Hunt or Kindley….or even Jackson. They were rookies, so I have no problem saying they can get better and be solid players. Jackson looks like he has a higher ceiling. But, none of them graded out very good. They all looked like rookies…no issue there….but Hunt should probably be a guard and Kindley better find a way to stay in shape and improve in pass pro. When you’re the 70-80th best player at your position….that isn’t good. Again, rookies, I get it….but none of them looked irreplaceable.
    We averaged less than 4 ypc last year and ranked 29th in rushing. Terrible. Our QBs were harassed way too fast and too often. Yes, they were an improvement over the years before, but this OL was no where near good. It kinda sucked, actually.
    And Happy Birthday, Ken!

    1/10 the speed of light is 18,600 miles per second, not 67,000 MPH. Other than that, basically agree with Rob

    you’re right, i left off a couple of zeros, it’s 6,700,000 MPH
    186000 MPS x 60 x 60 = 669,600,000 mph/10

    O Rob can’t believe in Tua !! Ya think he’s gonna buy into UFOs ?? 🤡

  66. ocalarob says:

    milky way has a distance of 150 to 200 thousand light years across, if you were to send a probe at the speed of light for 500 years to a distant system, it wouldn’t amount to a gnat on the milky way and it would take a 1000 years just to get the info back.

    i would assume the best way to send life to distant worlds would be to send the seeds of life there and let robots activate them, maybe thats how we got here

    Sigh, I was about to put some ribs on, I was just waiting for the grill to get to temp. Thought I’d pop on real quick and see what was up on the blog. Then I forgot and started commenting about UFOs. I ran out there, and my charcoal was all alight and way too hot. I basically wasted a whole chimney of charcoal because of those damn aliens, lol.

    OMG, Doge coin up 109 percent, bought with BTC up 4, for a total of 113 percent,

    100 buying power margins

    i had the buying power of over 1 million doge coins today OMG< You would NOT believe this, lmao i made 3 years salary in 24 hours !

    i tried filling u guys in, and Doge isnt done yet, its designed to rise forever because of its blockchain design, and futures auto buying back in the dips

      Elon Musk is fueling the excitement over Doge, just so ya know. I may invest in it very quickly.

        i told you about it when You could buy 20 coins for a penny, not they are 26 cents each, but it will rise forever

        when it hits $1, ill cash out and be a doge coin Millionaire, lol

        i dont buy the coins, those are only 10X margins,

        i get the futures, 100 X margins!

        i use Kucoin and Coinbase, and have a blockcard Visa card to pay My daily expenses, utilites, car payment, etc

        everything gets paid with Doge gains, lol

    people used to laugh at me, why would You buy 100,000 of those sub penny coins, they wont ever go anywhere, but i did my research, and knew the future.
    i still hold the actual coins, but the real gains are in the futures i recently added in to My portfolio for the extra buying power.

    nobody is saying doge coins are for kids anymore, the former Meme coin is the fastest blockchain in the world, does transactions in less than a minute, where some coins like bitcoin take hours

  78. Tim Knight says:

    Kong, good point on aliens sending clunky things into our atmosphere. What if they weren’t clunky at all but the size of a pea or smaller that could travel long distances and gather data in ways we can’t comprehend just yet. Maybe instead of sending one, they send thousands to maximize their success rate. Maybe it takes hundreds of years to reach their destiny but being that they’ve been around for over a million years it’s not such a big deal. New generations keep it all going just like what we’re doing just far beyond where we’re at.

    Then again, maybe it’s not a solid object of any size at all, but something else that can travel far distances. You said we’ve been sending radio waves into space for 100 years. Has it even been that long? And if so, do you think that’s been good enough since 1921? We just started inventing cars and airplanes around that time. How were we reaching the far distances of space?

    • David Collins says:

      somebody is sending something, thats for certain, i have 2 videos of UFOS and light orbs, and they fly with a technology, that we dont have in the air yet

      • David Collins says:

        i took the videos with My cell phone, one a few months back, and the other one about 14 months ago

    • CavalierKong says:

      Speculatively, if it were happening, I think it would likely be something like what you outline above- energy based or using some sort of quantum mechanic technology, not giant tic-tacs moving weirdly in the sky, lol.

      There are a lot of things that would have to happen for an alien visitation to even be possible, let alone actually happen, and while I don’t think it is impossible, I think it highly, highly unlikely. I personally think the odds of us being created by aliens a far more likely possibility, which I guess would then mean I do believe we are being visited by aliens, lol. But I think that highly unlikely as well.

      It’s all fun speculation. And who knows? Maybe next week first contact happens globally, and all of our lives change. Just keep a tinfoil hat nearby and remember…swing away. LOL

      • Tim Knight says:

        But what was that tic tac? Maybe an anomaly or a purposeful deviation? Maybe a hologram or another illusion. Do you think a superior alien species could do that to us just like we do to other less intelligent species on Earth? I mean we catch fish with colored lures that are not real food. LOL

        We tend to think we humans are at the top of it all, but maybe we’re at the level of krill in the ocean in the big scheme of things in the universe.

    • CavalierKong says:

      Tim, the 100 years thing when I said it I also said ‘very generously’, that was to indicate I was basically rounding it off to 100 years because I was too lazy to look up the exact date and I figured it was obvious. It’s probably closer to 60, but when talking about intervals this small, the difference between 60 and 100 is entirely insignificant.

  79. David Collins says:

    i have a video of a light orb over an animal hospital that kept some sick dogs there overnight

    the orb hovered silently, only 10 yards from Me, looking at Me, or so I thought, then it went over the roof of the animal hospital, and somehow the dogs sensed it and howled as loud as they could until it was about 100 yards away, then the dogs stopped, and the craft went ZOOM, full warp speed and gone, without making any noise i could hear, but the dogs heard it, must have been a very high pitch like a dog whistle, very weird

  80. David Collins says:

  81. bookman11 says:

    OR, God created the EARTH, and that s it. SMH. The more the Bible seems like a “ fairy tale” the more it is truthful.

    • David Collins says:

      he didnt create the rest of the universe? who did that for God?

    • David Collins says:

      the bible did not mention anything about the light orbs i took videos of with my phone, its a great book, but doesnt include everything about futuristic space flight in 2021, thousands of years later

    • Tim Knight says:

      Which God? Human cultures have how many… I don’t even know anymore? The one that resonates with me the most is the Sun. We surely don’t exist without the Sun.

  82. CavalierKong says:


    So alien probes is the most likely answer to the tic tac? Um no, just because we encounter a lot of phenomenon we don’t understand yet, doesn’t mean aliens is the answer.

    Using science we currently have, unexplained phenomenon are more likely to be nearly anything else other than aliens because the laws of physics as we currently know them say so.

    You can speculate and say “well what if?”, but you can do that about anything at any time. It doesn’t suddenly make it any more likely. It’s just wild theory with nothing to hang it on.

    • David Collins says:

      saying there are no alien life forms, is also a theory with nothing to hang it on

      this is a total grey area, with nothing concrete, except to say what it does that we can see

      its VERY strange, and appears and acts unworldly

    • Tim Knight says:

      “the laws of physics as we currently know”

      That’s the point I’ve been trying to make. We humans think we know how it all works. I don’t think we do. But it’s all we know and that’s cool. Just don’t think we’re even close to that. We humans still have issues with the color of our skin which is primitive. Forget the whole God thing. That to me has been bizarre for as long as I can remember.

      • CavalierKong says:

        I understand that we don’t know everything yet, so aliens might be here. That’s what the point is, some insane technology that we can’t even comprehend changes what we know about science allowing for aliens to be here. It isn’t a complicated thing to speculate wildly about what might exist.

        My point is- I may be Dorothy and you may be Toto, and all I have to do is click my heels together 3 times, and we’ll be back in Kansas.

        But just because that possibility exists in some theoretical sense, that doesn’t mean it should be the first answer we look to, because it goes completely against everything we know.

        I.e. unexplained phenomenon being attributed to aliens goes against all scientific knowledge, therefore it is highly probable that some other answer exists.

        If you believe it’s aliens, that’s cool, man. 🙂

  83. David Collins says:

    Many believe that God created the earth and the universe, and many believe that the big bang happenned

    but the idea that God created the earth, and someone else created the universe is a new one for Me, lol

    here is a hypothetical for the ones that believe God created the earth and the universe, and only created human life forms.
    who are we to identify all of the human life forms? and animals, plants, etc?

    its possible we have not seen them all yet, and when we see unexplained mysteries flying around, its because of people, life forms, and technology that we have not been exposed too?

    all i can say is there is some sort of sentient life form, that is either flying these craft, or remote controlling them

    who manufactures these things? and can we buy one? lol

    • CavalierKong says:

      Preach, brother, LOL

      You and I have always seen eye-to-eye on God and religion. What could be more arrogant than being made in God’s image? lol

      We each have our own belief and value systems, and religion can be a great vehicle for instilling those, but people will always be people. I’ve met some highly religious people that were really great people and met some that were really shitty people.

      My mother’s side is mostly Catholic, and I spent a few of my younger years going to a Presbyterian church. That was enough for me to decide on another path.

      • Tim Knight says:

        Exactly! Cheers, brother! But that kind of thinking is part of our problem as a country and society. The religious people won’t budge, and this new/old progressive left of society think they know everything while looking as stupid as one could be. It’s not any different. It’s a cult mentality no matter how you view it. My way or the highway.

    they say the universe is expanding faster than the speed of light, how do they know this?
    Hubble takes pics of galaxy’s over 13b light years away and they seem to disappear, dropping off the edge of visibility, not because they are not there anymore but because they are moving away from us faster than the speed of light.

    we are moving ourselves, this solar system moves thru space at 500,000 MPH towards something called the great attractor, we can’t see this attractor because it is on the other side of our galaxy and the dust obscures it. we will be able to see what this is in about 100,000 years give or take, that’s when we will be on the other side of the galaxy.

    • Rhino says:

      good stuff ORob. The ‘natural shape’ is “spherical”. While galaxies look ‘flat’ they are actually spherical … we just can’t ‘see’ the dark matter. Interestingly, the multiple universe ideas suggest a ‘universe’ is a sphere that has a central gravitational pull that causes galaxies to orbit it. I love this stuff. 🙂

  96. Rhino says:

    absolutely loved the Najee Harris video you posted. Watched the entire thing this morning while drinking my coffee.
    I saw his young life from the eyes of an educator … and his behavior screams “high score on ADHD inventory” lol. Even his quick flips from Alabama to Michigan and then back to Alabama is classic impulsiveness (which is the aspect of ADHD that gets kids/adults into “legal” trouble). The physical outlet is critical. Without it you get things like his destruction of the classroom. lol

    That said, the video is also a reminder that sports are a very important part of the educational system. Some may not need it, but kids like Najee are literally saved by it … and deep down that’s the purpose of ‘education’ to begin with. While the focus can certainly be “get into a good college”, the reality is the goal is to help kids get on a path where they will be able to provide for themselves and their families… and more specifically the ‘thinking skills’ to get there. That means an endless number of outcomes, not just, say, SAT score. 🙂 Obviously this also applies for girls sports (I love GSW and Draymond, but I certainly disagreed with his comments about women’s athletics lol).

    Anyway… great video. If there are more in the series please post or post link where to find them.
    His immersion into football shows the ‘upside’ to ADHD … finding something that makes you feel more in control and then making it the center of your life because you feel better. I expect Najee will continue that passion in the NFL.

  97. steveccnv says:

    Pitts/Chase at 6 or
    Trade to 8-10 for WR/Parsons
    Trade to 20s for Najee/Rousseau
    36 – take top3 RB or Rousseau, if not take in 1st.

    50 – Dickerson/Humphrey/Meinerz
    81 – OT to be used as depth to fill a roster spot, then next year used to challenge for a starting spot or groom a safety in the same way or an OLB, if both Parson/Rousseau or 2 others haven’t been drafted yet

    • Rhino says:

      trade back AND get Parsons idea … do you think he gets past Denver at #9? I don’t think he does. Seems like Carolina is now less likely to trade up.
      Grier/Flores certainly wanted to stay pretty high up for an elite talent. If we don’t take Parsons at #6, I don’t see a way for him to be a Dolphin … I think our FO has developed a “we can coach up anybody” mentality and aren’t going to lose sleep about ‘one guy we can’t live without’.
      I like the pick #50 approach. Our attempt at Wilson at least showed the Fins believe they need more OL help.

      • ocalarob says:

        Denver may want one of the remaining QBs on the board at 6, so we could very well move to 9 get parsons and additional compensation.

      • steveccnv says:

        Parsons has a chance to be a Tunsil type of drop, if you believe anything the media tells you. I usually don’t, but they sure were right when Mayfield was drafted 1st…

        What these mocks tell me is teams have more than one option, other than the QB teams at the top, so I can see Parsons slipping to 10.

        5 QBs in the top 9 I think is 75% certain, at least 1 OT, that leaves the 4 receivers and Parsons, so at 10 we’ll have either Parsons or a WR undrafted

  99. bailbondmike says:

    Y’all know me and my conspiracy theories. I am not a church guy nor have I read the bible all the way through. Not even close. I believe in the bible. I believe the bible is a history book written to record stories passed down from our ancient past and also a guide to live our lives by. Though, I don’t think it is an exact history book based on all the time in history it covers.

    Bibles and ancient texts from around the world reference some of the same things like an Adam and Eve. Another common one is that we were either brought here by God or “The Gods” or that we were created in God’s or “The Gods” image. Some bibles/texts refer to “The Gods” meaning plural.

    Many ancient cultures from all around the world believe we were brought here from various star systems. Tribes in Africa, China, Siberia, South America and even North America are just several. Some think our Gods are still here monitoring us. They refer to them as “the watchers”.

    Kind of makes me wonder since there are documented reports of UFO’s over our nuke missile sites both in the US and in Russia. Activating them, shutting them down and taken completely taken off line.

    Maybe these UFO’s we see now are not from outer space but from here.

    OoooooooooWeeeeeeeeeOoooooooo, lol

    We just don’t know shit do we.

    • steveccnv says:

      Believing in God is a spiritual thing, being created in his image is a metaphor.

      I believe the point of believing in God/religion is to help people to be a better person, to help others, to be less selfish, to get along, to have morals, so you can be at peace with yourself and the world. It’s the backbone of our country and family is a part too.

      Some people don’t need religion or God to do the right thing, they just do it, for the rest…

      To change things in our country, you have to tear down that backbone, so get rid of religion and family, once you do that and the people don’t believe in anything, you can get them to believe in what you want.

      With religion and God out of public schools you start the young off on the right foot, to this path.

      We’re living in dangerous times, be careful what you wish for

  100. Mike E. says:

    I have no strong feelings either way about aliens. There have been times where I’ve thought there must really be aliens, there are so many references, in movies, print etc. that there has to be a shred of truth to their existence. There are also so many references to zombies and walking dead, and I draw the line there that it’s nonsense that such things exist. I think both are just fun things that people imaginations come up with. I’m not religious person, even when I was most involved in my religion, I never really felt as if there were a greater being out there that controlled everything, although I think I had superstitious thoughts that if I did something bad I might get punished for it by God, especially when I was younger, and still to some extent. If you’re wondering why aliens always look similar I think people just buy into what they have seen previously and run with it. Kinda like how “Point Break was remade a few years ago. It was an OK movie, but did it really cry for a remake? lol

    • steveccnv says:

      Aliens always look similar, because Hollywood has instilled that image of what an alien looks like in our brain, so that when you think of aliens that’s the picture in your mind.

      Kind of like how the breakfast industry has instilled that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, even though it was just an advertising campaign

  101. steveccnv says:

    Jim Mora Jr says Phillips isn’t an injury concern, that he’s had a couple of concussions, but that isn’t the reason he left UCLA.

    Nice endorsement, but I’m taking it with a grain of salt.

    If we went O with both in the 1st I’d consider him at 36, but not if Rousseau is there.


    • steveccnv says:

      Ajayi had injury concerns too, but was good for a few years. Phillips can be at least what Jay was.

      Maybe he plays at a high level longer, but I’m not risking a 1st to take him.

      In the 2nd you risk the talent not being there, so it offsets with the injury

  105. steveccnv says:

    Been watching Smith tape again, he’s so smooth and deceptive. His cuts and route running are right up there with the best. His hands and jumping ability allow him to win 50-50 balls. His speed, while not over the top is very good, and when added to his quickness it makes him elite.

    I think he’s been playing at his ideal weight, added muscle would take away from what he does best.

    Putting a hit on him is like trying to catch a fly with chopsticks.

    I think he’ll be the best WR in this class.

    With that said I’d take him at 6 over Chase, Waddle and P (couldn’t quite finish the sentence) 🤪

    • steveccnv says:

      He’s also very football smart, and reminds me of Warfield, so

      • steveccnv says:

        It was Smith’s route running that lead to the OT win in the championship game, that made Tua a star, one play after Tua took a long bad sack

      • David Collins says:

        we cant go wrong with any of those choices IMO

        these guys are the head of the draft class

        the Dolphins will get a top 3 talent, because of the usual QB run at the top

      • steveccnv says:

        Can’t disagree

  106. David Collins says:

    this is why i feel Grier didnt need the third pick, it was just too valuable,

    since we can get the same kind of talent at 6.

    but at 12? they would all be gone, i think Grier got the most value he could out of it

    • steveccnv says:

      We’ll see on draft day, if they don’t really love one of them over the others a trade down may happen to get even more picks.

      I’m almost hoping Pitts and Chase are gone before 6, leaving Smith for us.

      I can see Smith hitting the ground running on day 1, and never looking back

  107. steveccnv says:

    Kiper comes out with that ridiculous trade up to 4, now several others are jumping on the bandwagon.

    While the rest of the league is praising Grier and Flores Kiper is secretly mocking them, but in the end, when the trade isn’t made, we can all look back at what a maroon kiper really is

    • ocalarob says:

      it’s all speculation, i doubt they would move up unless it was a bargain and they could turn that bargain into future resources. they moved to 6 for a reason, they know at the very least they will get one of the top 3 non QB players at 6.
      i would assume that would be Chase, Sewell or Pitts.
      for some sneaky reason i feel they have smith on their mind though.

      last year we were predicted to win 6, the prediction are always negative for Miami, and the Dolphins often exceed them by several games
      with such a short season, to be off by 4-8 games means the predictions are totally worthless, and need to be ignored for the most part

      • ocalarob says:

      Maybe the change was based on how the betting money flowed. The game we added was the Giants @ The Rock — no doubt that has to be seen as a most likely win.

      • steveccnv says:

        Money talks is exactly what it’s all about, never meant to be a prediction of w/l but a prediction of where the bettors will bet, so that equal money comes out on both sides.

        The goal of sportsbook is to have exactly the same amount bet on each side, so no after what side it comes out on it’s a split. They make their money on the vig or juice

    “we’ve been sending out radio signals traveling at the speed of light for 100 years and have yet to hear any alien signal.”

    And that is one that has to be explained. Possible explanations for it:

    1 — we are the only intelligent life that has advanced to that point.
    2 — the period during which such technology is used is brief before going to something else.
    3 — once a civilization becomes that advanced it inevitably destroys itself in short fashion.

    • ocalarob says:

      one of the reasons is the milky way is very vast, if the milky way were the size of our solar system 100 light years would amount to the size of a palm tree here on earth, in reference to our solar system. it’s more than likely there are advanced civilizations out there sending signals in our own galaxy, it’s just out of the realm of possibility to receive them.

      • stangerx says:

        No expert on it, but my impression is the earth has one big electronic footprint that now expand 100 light years but will just keep growing. We should be able to detect similar from other planets even if from many thousands or tens of thousands of years ago. And scientists have been trying.

      • ocalarob says:

        if you’re questioning is there other intelligent life out there based on a lack of signal, the reason i believe there is; is because we are here. the composition of the stars made us, and with the uncountable galaxy’s out there stars and the planets that surround them i think it’s safe to say there may be billions of different types of intelligence out there.
        so long a distance the signal may dissipate.

      • stangerx says:

        I use that exact argument for why there must be life. Think finding water on other planets was the clincher on that. Just not sure how advanced it is though. And not finding signs of civilization is a reason to leave the question open.

      • stangerx says:

        Great pic…. but my point wasn’t about our electronic footprint, was about why can’t we find similar from other planets that put them out far longer ago. Wonder if anyone has calculated what our maximum detection range for such would be. Like said, know some scientists are trying.

      • ocalarob says:

        what about dust? planets? gravitational lensing, a bunch of obstacles in the way may dissipate the signal, there may be a distance that can only be reached and that distance may be very short in terms of the enormous scale of space.
        radio waves stretch the longer they travel, that stretching makes them weaker.

    Stanger, there actually was a signal received from outside our solar system, in 1977, or so they said.


    • stangerx says:

      From the article sounds like maybe, maybe not. But if that was received was from 20 thousand light years away. So least the scientists thought detection from that distance was possible.

  119. bailbondmike says:

    Many ancient cultures believe they are from a different star system. Why would they have all these stories or ancient text stating as much?

    Check out the Hopi Indians (the “People of Peace”) who believe in an alien race of Ant People who live underground within the earth. Their ancient artwork depicts as much. How advanced are they if they do exist? Could they be the ones flying these damn tic tac’s?

    I believe the Hopi are related to the Aztec culture, can’t remember exactly. Much like the Mayans, they believe in the cycles (or world) of time. They say we are in the 4th cycle. Each cycle (world) ended in destruction/cataclysm as will the 4th cycle we are in. The Hopi refer to themselves as the caretakers of the 4th cycle in exchange for the privilege of living on earth.

    The previous cycle (3rd cycle) the Hopi describe an advanced civilization (Atlantis myths among others come to mind) with flying shields and wars between distant cities. This correlates exactly with ancient texts from India. I am not too familiar with that but that is what I understand, flying Vimana’s with weapons as destructive as nuclear weapons. Fire and brimstone? There are some ancient sites the destruction shows stone fused together and sand turned to glass very similar to the sand turned to glass in Nevada where we were testing nuclear weapons. The third cycle the Hopi says was eventually destroyed by great floods. Now that correlates to what is talked about in the bible.

    They believe at the end of this 4th cycle of the world the star people will return to protect us from destruction as they have at the end of past cycles. The return of Christ? This gets even crazier when you read about the Hopi legend of the Blue Kachina which goes along the lines of Mayan prophecy and, wait for it, the Planet X theory.

    I think, but may be mistaken by this theory, but every time Planet X comes around it causes shifts in the poles with major floods and destruction.

    Now some theorists are relating the end of these 4 cycles, “cycle or world ending” destruction, to the poles shifting. Not slight shifts but major shifts. Ancient cultures built their monuments or whatever based on north/south and east/west. Many of these though don’t line up to current true north but do line up to a point on the globe with other ancient monuments around the world. They are realizing that many of the ancient structures and sites are vastly older than first thought. Possibly, they are remnants from previous cycles.

    An expert mapped all the alignments of all the ancient monuments, etc. and they all line up to the exact same 4 spots on the globe which are to be believed where the North Pole used to exist or exists now. North Pole locations were said to be (not in order of cycles) the Bering Sea, Hudson Bay, Siberia and the current location. So we have the Hopi’s 3 past cycles and the 4th cycle we are currently in. We have ancient structures aligning to 3 past positions of the North Pole and the 4th location of the north pole we currently have.

    The Hopi say the 4th cycle is nearing an end. Guess what, it is already documented that the North Pole is moving again toward Siberia.

    Is everything in these ancient texts and stories passed down all that mythical? Many cities referenced in these texts, once thought mythical, are being found at various depths in seas and oceans around the world; India, Scotland, Asia and now Cuba (Atlantis?). They have found a sunken city deep off the coast of Cuba with possible pyramids and buildings.

    In ancient art, ancient texts, religious texts and various bibles from around the world there are many references to flying vehicles and other worldly beings.

    Anyway, there is so much we don’t know and are just scratching the surface.

    One benefit of working from home is I just poured myself a glass of wine to finish out the day/week. Couldn’t do that in the office. Stressful week. My daughter had surgery Wednesday, 3 pins in her finger, a bad break due to a mishap with the wild pony she captured and has started training. While I’m there with her before surgery, she’s having a meltdown over the IV needle, get a text from 16 yr old son who is pulled over by police. He’s had his license for about 4 months. Not supposed to have passengers or loses license until 18. Any guesses if he had passengers? I thought this parenting thing would get easier as they got older.

    • CavalierKong says:

      Lol, yeah, that is brutal, especially if none of them are fix it tix that can be corrected and dropped. They can get damn expensive.

      Best courtroom experience I ever had was walking in on a bench warrant with about 15 unpaid traffic tickets, and the judge dropped all the duplicates, so I ended up only having to pay on three of them. Thought I was going to pay about 5 grand, ended up paying about 1,200.

      By the way, this was all when I was a lot younger and dumber, lmao.

      • stangerx says:

        15 unpaid Were you doing the Cannonball Run?….. lol.

      • CavalierKong says:

        They were almost all driving on expired license and no registration. Cops would pull me over, but no cop wants to take in a bench warrant on traffic tickets, so it never got resolved. They would just keep giving me another set of tickets. If we’re being honest, I rounded down the 15, I’m pretty sure the actual number was either 17 or 18, lol.

      • stangerx says:

        Those are traffic tickets too…. but I was thinking moving violations. Those are more “status violations” but heck yeah those can kick you the ass just as bad. Does sound like you got to know your local cops though. 🙂

    Actually I felt pretty good about this one. I have told both of them a story how I got pulled over-might have told it here before- speeding- the state trooper asks did I know how fast I was going? I told him when I saw the blue lights go on I looked and it was 83(55 zone). As he’s taking my license and registration back to his car to do whatever they do, my now ex says I can’t believe you told him 83! I’m thinking, he already knows that! So he brings my license etc back, gives me a warning and said he appreciated my honesty. Like I said, have told my kids that story, honesty is the way to go. So my son tells me he told them the truth, and got a warning. Thought that worked out well. Just wish they could have their crisis situations at different times.

    • Tim Knight says:

      I had the same thing happen many years ago. I was speeding on route 80, got pulled over and the cop asked why am I going so fast? I was doing 78 in a 55, it might be 65 now, but I said yeah I know I have a delivery to make and I’m running late (was a courier at the time). He saw that I had boxes and packages in the back of my truck, said okay slow it down and just gave me a warning. If you don’t give cops a hard time or BS them they usually work with you.

  128. Tim Knight says:


  129. CavalierKong says:


    That’s awesome for your son to get that kind of positive reinforcement on a good value (honesty). I’ve always had good experiences with cops, and I am always respectful and honest, I just never get out of the tickets, lol. But I’ve always known I’m getting tickets I deserve, so it’s easy to accept the tickets with a smile.

    As a fun counterpoint to your story, my too honest with a cop story turned out a little different, lol.

    I had another bench warrant out for a minor possession failure to appear (I was a troubled youth, what can I say? lol). The warrant had been active for a few years when I got pulled over for something I was not going to be ticketed for (that in itself is another story). The officer of course informed me I had an open bench warrant. We talked for a few minutes, and as an end of interaction statement, he reminded me to take care of that warrant.

    I of course being the honest and idiot ape I am, said yeah, thanks officer, I am just having a real hard time turning myself in for it. (My wife tells me I have an oversharing problem) The officer kind of turned to his partner, they talked for a sec, and he comes back and says he’s going to do me a favor and take me in that night, lol.

    The truth is, he meant it like he said it. We talked all the way to the station, and he said he liked me and saw I was trying to get my act together and by getting this taken care of, he really saw it as helping me out.

    So in this case I talked myself into being taken in, lol. But the truth is, he did do me a favor. It was the last thing I needed to get taken care of to get my troubled past behind me. And way down the road I ended up working with law enforcement, and I may not have had that opportunity if things had played out differently.

    No, not anytime soon, for sure. What’s more, any light (forget radio waves) we see here on Earth has been received from $#!t that happened millennia x1000 ago. It’s theorized that Betelgeuse (of the Orion constellation) may already be dead… yet we’ll continue to see it’s light for many, many millennia forward.

    THAT’S just how expansive space is… and this mere example is but a drop in the bucket of time/space.

    IMO, ORob has put out some great stuff over the last couple of days regarding expansion of the universe, and how it’s being theorized that it’s going faster than the speed of light. Not sure I believe it, though. Everything has a decay time, but for time itself… but then again, time is but a mere ‘human concept’… or so I’ve been told.

      We as humans really think we KNOW IT ALL! It’s laughable! And every generation, we learn more and more, so as dispel the last generation’s findings.

      I’m very scientific-minded. Yes, I believe somebody or something created us… it’s scientifically IMPOSSIBLE for something to come from nothing. Human religion is based on colloquialisms (race/region/power), but most agree we didn’t just ‘happen’.

      And if we came from alien life (it’s very possible)… who created the aliens? And then the aliens have to ask, who created them? And the creators of the aliens have to ask, who created them? And it goes ON and ON and ON… to infinity.

      Now go to the ‘aliens’ (microscopic) that inhabit our skin. Ever see those disgusting little F’ers? They were created, too. Put a mere cell under a microscope, blow it up x1000, and you’ll likely see microscopic life living on what WE consider to be microscopic life. Blow it up again x1000, rinse and repeat, and it goes ON and ON and ON… to infinity.

      I FIRMLY believe in God, the creator of ALL, and I choose to worship him in the most peaceful manner… I BELIEVE in Christ Jesus. Man-made wars should not be invigorated by man-made religion, and vice-versa. We human-beings are pretty foolish, petty, and arrogant. Carpe Diem, and love this life we live.

      I’ve met people of various religions from all over the world. When ya get to the nuts and bolts, we ALL believe in a Creator… humans have just formed various ways to worship (man-made religion, again, and based on colloquialisms).

        It didn’t come from nothing but wherever elements came from is what started life throughout the universe. People have a hard time rapping their head around UFOs and Aliens but some sort of God created it all, as in a some sort of heavenly father. That’s a human created vision. To me life is God, God is life. There is an unbelievable supernatural force for sure or there would be nothing. But I don’t view it in human form.

        Like you said “We as humans really think we KNOW IT ALL! It’s laughable!”

    Then you think of how can the universe ever end at some point? Or do blackholes control its expansiveness but even then where is the end, how could that work?

    All I need are some tasty waves, a cool buzz, and I’m fine. LOL

    Well my friends and I had the same problem as you, all the bands we dug were already broken up before the 80’s. We grew up on 60’s and 70’s music. So any act that had anything to do with members of all those bands, we went to see. They were our Gods of music.
    We understand one another, perfectly, man.

    • mf13ss says:

      I grew up on 70s and 80s music (half a generation after you), and I hold that music very close to my heart. It’s difficult to innovate in today’s game as an indy artist and producer, thus I see a renaissance of REAL music… or so I hope, right?

  147. bailbondmike says:

    All that talk about UFO’s and the universe made all of this political shit look so small for a minute.

  148. bailbondmike says:

    This is a very well thought out 1st round mock by Charles Davis and could very well go down close to this. Many on here don’t like Paye though. Hate to see Najee go to Steelers but really think they take him or Williams. Also would hate to see Joe Tryon added to an already good Bills defense but they also need some pass rush. If they feel Paye is Legit then I am all for it. I would just hope we would get Williams at #36.


    • ocalarob says:

      these mocks get old, maybe somewhat close but i’d bet there’s movement, does miami want paye? or would they trade back and get phillips?

      once you get out of the top 10 you’d have a better chance of predicting the lottery

  149. ocalarob says:

    you may think moving at 186000 miles per second (speed of light) is fast, it’s actually much slower than a snail when you put it in the vast universe. if you were to see something in space moving at the speed of light it would be standing still.
    you can see stars that explode and that explosion propels their matter close to the speed of light yet it looks stationary, traveling that fast it would take 200,000 years to get across just our own Galaxy. it would take 2.5 million years to get to Andromeda and you can see that galaxy with the eye.
    nothing can move faster than the speed of light in our galaxy, however the galaxy itself can move faster as it expands, or so i read.

  150. ocalarob says:

    Damn, i missed friday night rock n roll! shit!!

  151. ocalarob says:

    the later rounds will be very interesting, i believe we will not stay put after 6, we will move back as we lack 4ths thru 6ths rnd picks, i believe we will pick those up by trading back, we are good at picking players later in the draft. not so good early, and we suck picking #5 over all!

    • bailbondmike says:

      I agree. I see al kinds of movement possibilities. Would not be surprised to see us trade one or both 7ths to move up from 156. It’s all about getting who they want when it comes down to it.

      • ocalarob says:

        I think they target multiple players, they assess where they think those players will land and try to move up or back to secure one of them at that point in the draft.
        Flores certainly has been doing his home work being involved in the senior bowl

  152. Krishna says:

    While I believe there is Intelligence that animates our physical condition and somehow connects us all, I have never been sold on a mythical being or god.

    I also believe the human condition for the most part has not evolved to levels of perception where it can “see” beyond this physical dimension. Thus, there is the perception that the universe is ever so grand and expansive.

    Since we’re doing woowoo shit, I believe vibration/harmonics play a huge role in perception. The best example I have is a dog hearing at frequencies imperceptible to humans. There are many others.

    In other words, I agree with Tim Knight in that we have not evolved to the point of being able to measure what we do “know” let alone what we don’t.

    I always loved the ideas from Stark Trek about “phasing” or changing one’s vibration and transporting between dimensions and time. Lol…time is a dimension.

    I can’t imagine how many dimensions or states of vibration/perception exist. Infinite?

    Are there aliens? Depends on the dimension, maybe. Lol!

    Look at Ken. The vibration or harmonic brings him to a Hulk state. A belated happy birthday, Ken. Tax day!

  153. ocalarob says:

    another amazing thing is time, The further you get away from gravity the faster time goes, these GPS satellites have to be corrected because they are not on the same time scale as we are on earth, time moves faster for them.

    you would think a clock moves the same no matter where it is.

    • Krishna says:

      If you think of time as linear vs dimensional.

      I always thought of warp speed (Star Trek) as finding holes between dimensions not distances to traverse. An ever so slight shift in vibration that allowed a shift in time and place.

    • Krishna says:

      Using linear terms to describe dimensionality is problematic. We don’t know what we don’t know nor do we have the language for it’s expression.

  154. bailbondmike says:

    Krishna, Speaking of vibrations, another thing that interests me is acoustic levitation. Scientists are able to levitate small objects and control their movement. It can even be used in space but not sure if for propulsion. From what I understand it was successfully tested in space to hold objects steady and not float around in space.

    They have been working with acoustic levitation for well over a decade or two and have not seemed to progress much or have they?

  155. The Flying Pig says:

    When you try to catch up with the conversations on the blog the last couple of days

  156. ocalarob says:

    the thing about time is it travels on the fabric of space, matter deflects that fabric so it takes time longer to go around that deflection vs traveling in the straight fabric line of empty space.

    if you were to travel that empty space you would be propelled into the future.

    time is the 4th dimension.

  157. The Flying Pig says:


    6: R1 P6 WR Ja’Marr Chase – LSU

    231: R7 P3 S Mark Webb – Georgia
    258: R7 P30 C Drew Dalman – Stanford

  158. The Flying Pig says:

    Could be an interesting combo if you are into polar opposites

  159. ocalarob says:

    who knows what would happen if you were to pierce the fabric/dark matter of space, a black hole is simply a mass that is very heavy and dense, a teaspoon of that matter would be heavier than the earth.

    it sags the fabric of space creating a hole. light/time can’t escape it.

    i doubt it pierces that fabric though.

    if you were to get caught in a black hole you would simply become a paste on it’s surface.

    just like our sun sags that fabric, the only reason we don’t fall into the sun is our forward momentum balances both effects to make our orbit stable, same as the moon to the earth

    • Krishna says:

      The fabric you speak of is limited by the dimensions you use to describe it.

      How do you explain afterlife (most of the planet thinks it’s true), ghosts, aliens, tic tacs, etc. While they may be true, I can’t wrap my head around it as a linear phenomenon.

      Vibration and it’s infinite frequencies seem to me to be the most plausible of theories. Depending on the frequency determines the dimension of perception. Humans operate on a frequency higher than rocks, but much less than light or sound or time. We are stuck in these for now.

      • ocalarob says:

        you talk about dimensions and after life, you’re describing unrealistic speculation, i’m trying to be real with what we know.

        i think it’s all about size, what is string theory? things that are so small they can’t be seen, how about the universe, it’s so big we can’t see the end.

        we are somewhat caught somewhere in the middle of all this.

      • Krishna says:

        Speculation? Quantum physics is not speculation. Frequency or vibration is not speculation. The inability to “see” beyond a very limited frequency is the problem.

  160. Ken says:

    Where is Rod Sterling when you need him

  161. steveccnv says:

    I think this draft is going to have more busts than normal, with no combine and the odd schedules.

    BYU playing no one has propelled Wilson, others that sat out with only 1 year of production may have issues too.

    I don’t see the 40 times being a problem since each time does their own time

    • steveccnv says:

      With that said, the other side of that is more guys drafted later have a better than normal chance to be good players.

      I’m with Orob on filling in some picks in rounds 4 and 6.

      Drop from 18 back a little and take Najee or an Edge, if he’s gone, if Najee is the pick drop a little at 36

    • Ken says:

      I think the rookie wall when the rookies start fading the second half of the season will be more pronounced than normal this season

  162. The Flying Pig says:

    Pick 18 is always the hardest pick on those draft simulators

    Too soon to take a lot of players
    And just missed on a few more

    It would’ve bad to move into the 20s for an extra 3rd round pick IMO
    Unless there is a really good player on the board (parsons)

    Likewise giving up a pick to move up a few spots into the top 15 might also work

  163. ocalarob says:

    The fabric of space is like football, It seems the football season is far away from gravity as it zips by, then time slows we get closer to gravity waiting for FAcy, then we get near a black hole waiting for the draft, we are still gravitational bound heading into training camp and preseason, then all of a sudden we slip away from gravity and fasttracking thru another season!

  168. Randy says:

    I can’t remember if we’ve talked about this here, but I’ve heard it discussed on the radio. There are veteran players who are saying they want a complete virtual offseason because it makes it much more likely that vets will get jobs over rookies or first year guys. Because, coaches are much more likely to go with guys who are known quantities and guys who already know their systems and how to prepare over the unknown. That’s also why we’re seeing more 1 year contracts.
    Unfortunately, it makes for some bad football.

  169. D says:

    I don’t think this draft is going to have busy, I think it might be a lot of delayed gratification on the picks though. Last year was same though at least they had a full CFB season Year before this past one. This crew really didn’t even get that and some opted out the full season. It’s going to be a lot of wait and see before you pass judgement.

    Jut read a good Q — should Ricky Williams be in the Ring of Honor at Hard Rock?

    Sorta seems he should….. but then there is Australia.

    • The Flying Pig says:


      • stangerx says:

        Ricky vanished right before training camp.. Turned out he was on a walkabout in Australia. Announced he was retiring and then the lawyers got involved asking for millions in pre-paid salary back.

    • mf13ss says:

      As a Ricky fan and as somebody who Ricky knows, I’d say yes… but I’m biased. Objectively speaking (as much as I can be), I still say yes, he belongs in the Ring of Honor.

      • stangerx says:

        He deserves it for what he did on the field, even if will note for not too many years. I could see a case for betray the team like that one year and a no go. Is the “Ring of Honor” and not the “Ring of Best Stats.”

      • mf13ss says:

        Agreed, Stanger.

  172. The Flying Pig says:

    It’s 12 days from the draft

    I don’t think it’s too early to start the annual “who do you want/ who do you think we draft” posts

    Here’s mine

    1a chase/pitts
    1b parsons/Harris
    2a Ossai/Ossai

    I added our first 2nd rounder bc we have 3 picks in the top 36
    And that 2nd rounder is probably going to make an impact in 2021

    Been looking at Robert Foster tape, he’s pretty good 4.41 at 6’2″

    He should at least get a shot to earn a roster spot.

    Buffalo used him mainly for deep balls

  177. mf13ss says:

    As I look over our current WR corps (that includes the return of Albert Wilson), I’m beginning to wonder if we’re pulling a huge ‘head-fake’ in this Draft.

    Tua was 50% last year, recovering from a near career-ending injury, with no off-season training and camp (COVID). Are we really to believe that our receivers suck so badly, that we need to take one early… to the tune of, “WE HAVE TO REUNITE TUA WITH HIS FORMER GUYS!”??? That would be the sign of a WEAK QB, who can’t compete at the NFL level without HIS former guys.

    Ponder that for a moment…

    • bailbondmike says:

      I was thinking the same thing after Steve posted about Robert Foster. He is no JAG nor camp fodder. He is a legit NFL receiver. We have added him and Fuller to Parker, Williams, Wilson, Grant and Bowden. Then we have guys fighting for spots in Hurns, Merritt, Perry, Hollins and Locksley.

      We have 12 (including Perry) in the WR room now and haven’t added any rookies yet.

  178. Krishna says:

    I believe our WRs are unreliable to be on the field and perform when needed.

    So, I can’t agree with the premise. It has nothing to do with chemistry.

    Other than that, I agree.

  179. David Collins says:

    very tragic and bad story about a little boy in Illinois getting shot and killed by cops

    the system is horribly broken, why are so many people dying at the hands of idiots yelling taser tasr taser, or children?
    it is NOT the suspects fault most of the time, and even if it was, a little boy is dead, what if that was YOUR son? the system is garbage and needs immediate overhaul IMO

    this has got to stop, it cant be ignored and excused away as the suspects deserve it, i dont want My son, or daughter to be next, or anyone elses either

    • The Flying Pig says:

      You are disrupting the football/alien/breakfast talk

      • David Collins says:

        the cops are ending childrens lives by shooting them

        at least aliens arent on the taxpayers dime, and arent shooting kids

    • stangerx says:

      “it is NOT the suspects fault most of the time” — kid was carrying a gun at 2AM running from the police from the site of a shooting. Could not feel more bad for him and his family, but he didn’t put himself in harm’s way one bit?

      Legit topic to talk about, but then David has his own way of talking about such. And it draws others in.

        David is the only one that cares about children? that cant be true, if it is, OMG< SMH

      • stangerx says:

        David is at least the only one who doesn’t want cops to have guns. You do get the kid had one?

  181. David Collins says:

    the best way to end it is not to defund the cops, but dearm them!

    if they cant do their job without shooting children, , they are worse than Barney Fife, who was only allowed one bullet since he was so stupid!
    we dont allow children to play with guns, cops should be treated less capable than children with guns

  182. bailbondmike says:

    Are you talking about the 13yo Joe Toledo kid in Chicago?

  183. bailbondmike says:

    “the system is horribly broken”
    Yeah, the parenting system in this country sucks. What’s their 13yo doing out at 2am with a gun and participating in a shooting.

  184. Tim Knight says:

    Piggy, I tried to play but I’m just not ready yet. The main reason is because I think the first 4 picks is key to how things will start to play out. I know that sounds like duh but you know what I mean.

  185. bookman11 says:


  186. Tim Knight says:

    Lets say the first 3 picks are QBs and pick whichever ones you want.
    ATL at #4 either goes QB or probably Pitts, or they trade out. But who trades up?
    CIN at #5 either goes Sewell, Pitts or Chase.

    • bailbondmike says:

      I know, there are quite a few things that could happen there. Besides that, I am still on that teeter totter at #6 between Pitts and Parsons.

      • Tim Knight says:

        Same here. I don’t see Parsons falling to #18 so if we don’t take him at #6 but really want him we’re going to have to trade up to get him.

    • bailbondmike says:

      When I look at our whole WR and TE rooms, Parsons seems like the logical choice at #6.

      • Tim Knight says:

        I’ve said this before too because we don’t have to take a receiver at #6. I’d prefer we take the best defensive player in the draft IMO in Parsons and we can get a WR at #18 or in the 2nd round.

  187. stangerx says:

    Yeah I want Pitts on our team. He sure did this evaluator drooling.
    Kyle Pitts is the scariest we’ve seen enter the league at the tight end position since either Vernon Davis or Tony Gonzalez….He offers an All-Pro WR ceiling as a pass-catcher alone, with the same body and ball skills as Calvin Johnson (6’5/236), and an athleticism package just south.

    At his size and speed, Pitts provides a tactical puzzle for defenders, who are always wary that Pitts is going to make them the laughing stock of Monday’s film session by singing them over the top. So when Pitts makes a 90-degree precision cut to the sideline like he’s folding origami, or slams on the breaks for a come-backer, it’s not just that most defenders can’t stay with the footwork — it’s that they can’t see it coming….

    Nobody on the college football field could compete with Pitts the air — picture the rebounding stats from a basketball game where one guy is 3-5 inches taller than everybody else, has 5-7 inches of wingspan on everyone else, is 40 pounds heavier than everyone else, has the best hands on the court, and is a box-out artist besides….It goes without saying that we don’t see catch radiuses this size.

    There are so many Kyle Pitts stats from last season that would make your eyes bug out of your head. … Of his 43 catches, all but four ended in a first down or in the end zone. Pitts’ 96.2 PFF grade not only blew out all tight end challengers, it led all receivers…..Last year, no drops — no receiver in the nation was more locked-in with the ball on its way.

    The biggest criticism of Pitts’ game has always been blocking. Last season, he made an objectively enormous leap, improving from a poor 42.6 PFF run-blocking grade in 2019 to 65.8 last fall.

    Last year, Pitts lined up inline 54.7% of his snaps, with 24.1% coming in the slot and 21.2% as an outside receiver…. Unheard of versatility.

    “You look at (Travis) Kelce and (George) Kittle, the success they’ve had, there’s no comparison as far as athletic ability to this guy. I usually don’t go for that position that high, but I would take him in the top 10.”

  188. steveccnv says:

    Did we make a trade or are guys like Brian Miller clueless?

    Wide receiver unit is the key to the Miami Dolphins 2021 draft
    by Brian Miller1 h ago
    The Miami Dolphins 2021 draft plans could be predicated on what they think of their current group of wide receivers and the key to the draft itself.

    If the Dolphins draft a receiver with the 6th overall pick, you can expect the Dolphins to make moves throughout the three-day draft moving on from players on their roster. If they don’t draft a receiver at six or at 18, moving rostered players may not be a priority.

    The Dolphins have five picks in the first three rounds with four coming in the first two. They have one day three pick in round four and then do not pick again until round 7 where they have two selections.

    What they do not have are selections in rounds 5 and 6. This is where that receiver comes into play at 6 overall.

    • Tim Knight says:

      I thought we don’t have a 4th? I keep seeing people say we do but I thought we settled that weeks ago. LOL

      • steveccnv says:

        Round 1: No. 6 (from Eagles), No. 18 overall
        Round 2: No. 36 (from Texans), No. 50
        Round 3: No. 81
        Round 4: No. 156 (from Cowboys, through Eagles)
        Round 7: No. 231 (from Texans), No. 258 (from Chiefs)

        This is how stupid people are, look at rd 4 pick 156, if you can’t tell 156 isn’t in rd 4 without using a calculator or even doing some math in your head I don’t know what to tell you.

        If you write it and don’t notice it…maroon
