Less than 2 weeks away, and the closer it gets, the crazier it becomes. I’m willing to eat some crow here if I’m wrong, but those of you fawning over Micah Parsons or any other defender for that matter, are barking up the wrong tree. I mean no disrespect, but no matter how good our defense is, if we don’t surround our QB with premium weapons, why would you expect the offense to be premium? Let’s face it, the NFL is an offensive league, and the Kansas City Chiefs have proven that to be the case by making back to Super Bowl appearances, winning last year in 2020 but losing to the offensive powerhouse Tampa Bay Buccaneers in this past Super Bowl. Did TB have the better defense? Yes, but their defense was a compliment to their own high powered offense. The TB offense put up 492 points (#3 in the NFL) and allowed 355 points (8th in the NFL). The Miami Dolphins on the other hand were #15 in the NFL on offense, and to be fair, a lot of that was a decline in the offense after Tua took over for Fitzpatrick. The Dolphins averaged 26.6 points with Fitz at the helm and only managed 24.4 with Tua, including a couple of relief appearances by Fitz which helped that average. On defense, the Dolphins were #6 for points allowed at 21.1 PPG. My point is, if you think we’re taking a LB at #6, THINK AGAIN!!!
The Dolphins have to improve this offense and that could be done a few different ways. I’ve made it clear and will continue to reiterate that our WR corps is shaky at best. The top 3 are all health question marks, Parker, Fuller and Williams. The next 3, depending on what order you believe the depth chart is would be Bowden, Hurns and Wilson. The latter 2 haven’t played in over a year and were both recovering from serious injuries, Wilson with that terrible hip injury which he seemed to have finally shaken off by his last season’s end and Hurns who suffered a gruesome ankle injury with the Cowboys in January of ’19. Add Jakeem (No Hands) Grant and Malcolm Perry, Mack Hollins and Robert Foster and I’m sorry but you just can’t expect Tua to improve with this crew. No, they need TOP SHELF talent, and being at 6, we will get it. One of the following players will be there, Chase, Pitts or Smith. I had dismissed Smith for a while because once we acquired another WR who can’t stay on the field, my thought was the last thing we need is a 170 pound WR at #6, but there is familiarity and a super high level of talent there, and in spite of his smallish stature, he knows how to stay on the field and is a superior route runner who gets separation. I still believe if Chase or Pitts is there, we will go with one of those guys but if the Falcons don’t take a QB and the Bengals don’t go OL , potentially Pitts and Chase could go respectively.
While the O-line was much improved, from terrible to average, it’s not yet become a force. I think it’s pretty clear that both Solomon Kindley and Robert Hunt are our guards for the foreseeable future, and Austin Jackson is one of the bookends, most likely our LT. Penei Sewell could be that bookend that really pulls things together. I think the way we handled the center position in FA leads me to believe we’re going to draft a center, which would mean a 2nd or 3rd RD pick, because the acquisition of former Ravens C Matt Skura was underwhelming. The Ravens are a first class organization, and when they let a guy walk, there’s a reason. Add in the fact that he’s here on a 1YR deal makes me feel like Skura is here to start unless the rookie we draft beats him out or if the rookie isn’t ready to start. Sewell would be an upgrade over swingman Jesse Davis who has been wonderful filling in anywhere and everywhere. Giving Tua more time and confidence that he has ample time makes him a better QB.
I do think one of our first 4 picks will be on a LB/EDGE player, but not at #6, we just have to give Tua a chance here, and nothing we’ve done in the offseason despite a couple of potentially good signings in Will Fuller and Malcolm Brown have really elevated the talent here. Fuller is too often injured and Brown is a committee type RB, not a bell cow back. There are LB’s and tweener LB/EDGE guys that could help at #18 like Jaelan Phillips, Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, Kwity Paye, Gregory Rousseau, Azeez Ojularia, Jayson Oweh etc. I get the Parsons love, I do, but with the state of our offense, I think that needs to be the focal point for a premier player, just the way I feel. We simply can’t wait to see who’s available at #18, unless we trade up from #18, which is possible, it’s about getting great players that impact the team, not about quantity. Quality over quantity every time, especially where we’re at in the rebuild.
Haha! Page turn. 😂
Always liked that one
Manitoba. saw Rush in concert in FL for the Tom Sawyer tour, it was the best concert i have ever seen!, and they ended it with sneak preview, of their upcoming album with Subdivisions on it
If Atl trades down, looks like it will be with Denver, would Atl then trade back up to 6?
Stay the course unless you get an offer you can’t refuse.
David – I am not involved in that Wounded Warrior. They are a scam. I get involved with some of the smaller groups though. My hunt club in Virginia brings in bets every year for a week of hunting free. Set them up in stands, etc. And I’m a member of the VFW, just not very active. Great song tho.
wow, glad You are aware that wounded warriors were a scam
and good to see involvement in community efforts
Very underrated band. I REALLY like them … see below for my Favourite of theirs
Always confuse the names , I was referring to Soul Asylum , sorry 🤷♂️
David ; I am selective with Rush songs… I love a few , like some and could care less about a lot lol. Above, Trees, and Working Man would be faves
Neil Peart with the particularly clever lyrics there – playing the wood blocks during the interlude was another clever bit.
I m big on lyrics … thus why I really like that song, and String of Pearls above .. love the way that song comes full circle in the end
RIP to two legends: Prince and Shock G.
Prince loved Shock’s production so much, that he personally requested Shock to make a remix of his hit, “Love Sign”.
Sorry for yer loss bud
Thank you very much, my buddy. I’m still in mourning.
Well from the sound of it ya have a lot to draw on to remember him by
Indeed, I do. I’m thankful for that.
another band that I can’t name a Bad Song by … good taste Lady
This was the unofficial debut of “Humpty Hump” (on the intro and outro, circa 1989). Shock G had sampled Prince on this one (it’s got some thrash to it), and his story-telling is excellent. Shock was also an excellent cartoonist… you’ll see his work in the video below…
This was when rap music was still FUN.
another awesome , but underrated song by Rush, Red Barchetta
Y’all remember fellow blogger Gigi, right? Man, she used to go CRAZY over this one by Shock G! I hope Gigi is doing well…
thats another one of my favorites, lol hard to go wrong with Rush
LOVE IT, David! And it was the intro to Stephen King’s “The Stand”. Great song.
that song came out when i was in high school, this dude was cranking it, never heard it while we were doing the 70s version of Laremy Tunsil, gas mask bong, lol
wow it was amazing then, and still now
Absolutely happy song! Shock G!
yowza, some hot girls in that one, lol
is it draft time yet, lol almost there
^^ Dolphins official draft song ^^^
Another HAPPY SONG by Shock G!!! No rap, just singing a duet with Smooth!!!
Is there a theme for the music posts tonight
Or are you guys just posting whatever gives you shark swimming lady boners?
That’s a no from me. 😂
My theme is scrolling through my library on my phone.
here is one You might like MF< lol
Oh yeah, that’s a good one!
Sorry to hear about Shock G. RIP
Thank you, my Brother.
I’ve no idea how many of y’all got into Nirvana and Kurt Cobain, but here’s Shock playing “Smells Like Teen Spirit”. He was a fan…
Raw rock and roll, not overly processed music.
That’s right, my man!
Hey, Tim, here’s a good one, showing but a mere example of how great Shock G was on the piano. He could freestyle in jazz mode like very few could in this day and age…
It’s no wonder Prince loved Shock G.
My daughter and I bet on the Iowa/MN college football game 2 years ago. MN was having a great year, but I wasn’t buying it. I told her Iowa was gonna kick their asses because they really weren’t that good. If I won, she would have to go to a concert of my choice with me. Well, obviously, Iowa won. I had tickets to Allison Krause…one of my favorites….great folk performer if you don’t know her. COVID hit, and the tickets are still sitting in my car. Really bummed. They said it would be rescheduled, but it hasn’t been yet. I haven’t tried to get my money back yet….I keep hoping.
Love Allison Krauss
Three more and I’m out…
1) Please listen very closely to Shock’s words… when I heard this in ’06, it changed my life. Love, live, and learn…
2) This one is deep, yet FUNNY!!!
Very George Carlin-esque!
“Half of New York lives in Florida!”… so TRUE!
3) Yes, Shock G IS Humpty Hump. Funny how they filmed this… but it was Shock G the whole time. This song (and movie) introduced Tupac Shakur to the world. And even though this clip shows some weirdo playing the organs, it was Shock G who played the organs on the track…
Forgot to mention… Dan Aykroyd and Shock G were smoking up backstage together before this scene was shot.
Here you go Randy
Damn autocorrect. Thanks! I have no idea how to post music and ain’t gonna figure it out either.
Back to foosball for me now. I hope y’all got the chance to realize how special Shock G was to millions, including myself.
There is a chance that our FO is bamboozling the entire NFL world. No, it’s not for Penei Sewell (otherwise, we wouldn’t have traded to land AFTER the Bengals draft @ R1P5), and I think that’s clear. Now if the Bengals do NOT take Penei, that’s another thing altogether.
And no, funk all that BS that we might be trying to trade back up to R1P3 or P4… LOL, you’ve got to be KIDDING ME, U75s (in Steve’s words)!
Only guy I can think of, worthy of going so early, is Micah Parsons. So if the rumors are true that we’re fielding calls to possibly trade back a few spots, while keeping said ‘target’, I think it may be Parsons. JMO, as always.
The other guy I think it may be is Jaylen Waddle. I feel it in my blood that the Eagles will take him by R1P12.
Paging Mike E, paging Mike E!
When would like to do the annual FMU Draft, bud?
I’m off until Wednesday (Shock G), and I’d love to make this happen!
Sorry about Shock G M, very talented and went to young. RIP
You did a nice tribute to him tonight
Thank you, my man. I truly appreciate that.
I too am a big Allison Krauss fan. Some of her songs bring tears to my eyes. Her singing I’d story-telling that paints a picture with an God gifted paintbrush.
Miami moves from 18 to 9, gives Denver #36, Miami gets Denvers 4th rnder??????
could take Pitts & Smith or waddle
Tim & i discussing a 3 team trade
That is funny shit.
Who’s on 1st?
Who else is taking this for our first two rounds
My only concern is Ojulari, but at 36 I’d take it, he’ll be somewhat of a project
At 36 I think that’s the kind of player that fits well – a project
If he was a finished product with his ceiling he would go top 10
Honestly looking at the edge prospects in this draft, I think a lot of them are projects
At least for us they’re projects. Ojulari might be plug and play at 4-3 DE, but in our OLB-Edge spot he needs work
Think they don’t get what would have to happen at 6 for this move to 9 to happen.
There has been some speculation on social media and in the local media that Miami may be looking to potentially move up from 18 to the number nine spot. This has been fueled by comments made by Bronco GM, George Paton who has said he has not spoken with anyone about moving up but has fielded some calls about moving down. He said he spoke with Miami GM, Chris Grier this week.
If the Dolphins are looking to potentially move down from 18, it is going to cost them at least a 2nd this year and possibly more next year. At minimum. I won’t speculate on the exact cost because I don’t put much value in the trade chart these days.
We may move from 6 to 19 or 20, then the move to 9 from 18 comes into play.
Grier is keeping his options open
From 18 to 9 should be a 2nd rounder
Yes and the comp wouldn’t mean much, because of what we got going from 6 down to 19 or 20
6: R1 P6 TE Kyle Pitts – Florida
18: R1 P18 RB Najee Harris – Alabama
36: R2 P4 EDGE Joseph Ossai – Texas
50: R2 P18 LB Jabril Cox – LSU
81: R3 P17 C Quinn Meinerz – Wisconsin-Whitewater
156: R5 P12 WR Marquez Stevenson – Houston
231: R7 P3 S Shawn Davis – Florida
258: R7 P30 DL Mustafa Johnson – Colorado
Getting Meinerz at 81 makes this mock work, because it gives us 2 Edge projects, which allows the Najee early pick not matter all followed by the top draft prospect in Pitts.
I’d probably go with different Edges, that fit us better, but I wouldn’t complain, if it fell this way
Interesting points from Crabbs
I’m cool with moving up from #18, but would prefer then that we also move down some spots from #6 to at least mostly pay for it. #9 and #10 wouldn’t be a bad place to be.
good to see justice in the George Floyd murder by the scum pig chauvin, he was found guilty of murder charges and will be sentenced
this is how we stop murder by pigs
Haven’t seen one person on the board question the verdict. So all accept as just. Keep in mind he was just one bad cop though. Lots of real good ones out there. Used to work with them.
lots of ones like chauvin too, ‘
we cant overlook the bad ones because there are some good ones, justice needs to be served up to murdering pigs
i would be in favor of the death penalty for Chauvin, its disturbing the scum pig gets to share space on this earth with regular humans, i realize he likely wont get that, but that would be justice
Who said we should overlook bad cops? Used to help get some of those fired.
I’m surprised you favor the death penalty. You normally have a liberal take on issues.
im not a liberal, im an independent, ive mentioned that dozens of times, lolol
conservatives moved the goal posts further to the right, independents have not changed,
so yes they will believe more liberal issues than conservative ones,
some on the right like the whackpot Qanan , the capitol terrorists, and other idiot groups, cant be believed on anything by anyone IMO
they are always wrong
While more distinct on the right, the Dems have moved to more liberal as well. That progressive wing is there and has influence….. dragging the party platform left. Bernie wasn’t that far off from getting the nomination.
Bernie would have done an excellent job though, he is the only one that even seems halfway genuine to Me, he is a tireless fighter for citizens rights, and I am in favor of that
citizens includes people like You and Me, lol its all good if it benefits US< You and Me, and all the other AMerican citizens
Not good at alternative history. So don’t know if Bernie would have done a good job or not. Do know his policies were ultra liberal. Too much for me. Full circle back to you tend to support liberal policies.
i voted for Biden, and like some of the things he is proposing, but i dont support him
hes a huge upgrade over ronald mcdonald, but the only reason i really like Biden is because im profiting from him more, lol
the markets are lively, and im more into hedge funding now, i make money when the markets go up, and when they go down
covid is the real catalyst for many of the stocks, Ocugen, the biomed penny stock i talked about awhile back,
was 23 cents a share, Friday it was $11.62
3500 percent up on the last 12 months
doge coin is getting billionaire manipulated
they play the 1000 percent limit sell spike game now with it
they take the current price, and determine how many Dollars would it take to make a tiny half second spike up 1000 percent, then the execute that
because i know they do this, i set my sell limits up 1000 percent, and they execute sometimes, SMH
last saturday, coins were at a 3 month low, and at 130 am there was a freaky half second spike , that turned my $900 to $9000, then it returned back to the regular price
my buddy does the same since i told him, and he made 15K, lol
where do the billionaires get the gains from doing that? you guessed it, everyone in the market gets robbed, the whales crush them and get their positions liquidated, i lost my futures but got the 1000 gain’
gotta hedge your bets anyway possible , before the whales bankrupt You is what i figure
Baywatch Lifeguard Donna D’errico. Who would ever guess she’s 53?
she has some lovely life preservers, lol
wow thats hot
I am sure that is all natural and I am sure there is no airbrushing going on
You think for a second she wouldn’t be one bodacious 50’s woman in real life? My Mom visited the nip/tuck guys. And she was one beautiful woman into her 60’s. No airbrushing involved.
The face looks fake
Here’s a 2019 paparazzi street shot (so no photo shop)
You convinced me. Does she like pigs?
Nah — the Baywatch babe into pigs is Pamela Anderson.
The way David talks you would thing he is hanging out with Warren Buffet
That’s the buddy he was talking about. 🙂
SBJ.. Fuck man !!
Vaccine #2 is kicking my ass!
Doing the same to my better half First day after was a lost day. She’s still feeling it but better today (2nd day).
When did you get it?
Sorry to hear. You should be good in a day, bud.
Shit, I get my 2nd on may 5th. If I remember correctly Ken said to hydrate big time before and after.
stop you’re scaring me!
One more thing regarding Shock-G, and I’m going to leave it alone (I need to… I need to live again instead of wallowing around in misery). Anybody remember when Nike signed him (as Humpty Hump) in the early 90s? He did several commercials — including with Michael Jordan — with star athletes to promote their shoes.
THAT’$ how ya know you’ve become an international sensation. Here’s but one, with Sir Charles…
Would everyone be good if we did our annual FMU Draft (1st round only) on Monday night?
I don’t think if it’s Monday, Tuesday or Wens it will make a difference to me
But I might not be available to participate
I want you to participate, Pigster. You call it… I’m good for whenever, so long as it’s in the evening.
Got my second shot yesterday morning. Last night I had chills and a fever. Today I have a fever and just feel wiped out, mostly because I slept so poorly. I just took 2 Tylenol an hour ago and starting to not feel so cold and achy
Drink plenty of bourbon and have cigars. 😎👍🐕🥃🥃
you’re having an immune response
Hydration is important. I had a bottle of water after I got the shot. Didn’t drink before though
I’m already beginning to second-guess myself on Greg Rousseau @ R2P4. Somebody posted it up the board, that Brian Flores learned from the Patsie* Way, and their way is NOT with game-changing DEs (though it doesn’t hurt).
I’d prefer a pass-rushing DE over a pass-rushing OLB, but LBs are cheaper and easier to hide… THAT is the Patsie* Way. I’m back to my initial thought: NO on Rousseau.
Freudian-slip @ the 14:00 marker in the video below???
Hmmm… in this mock draft, no QB goes after R1P3… would the Broncos like to trade up with us in this scenario? Give me Jerry Jeudy and some change, and I’d gladly take Micah Parsons @ R1P9.
If Lock is not their guy, I would not be surprised to see them want to move to #6 for Fields.
#9 we get Jeudy and Parsons then Najee at #18 and maybe an extra 3rd?
Sign me up coach!
THAT’S what I’m talking about, man! That would be KILLER!!!
Jeudy catches balls like Grant.
I think SF is blowing smoke about jones. I think fields may go 3
Some are speculating might be Lance. Only thing for certain is a QB will go third.
But what we really want is for one to go at #4.
Should be 5 QBs going in the top 10 unless there’s a Brady Quinn. Makes pick #10 sound pretty good. Would be the 5th best non-QB in the draft. Sewell, Pitts and Chase probably gone…. but only one other player could be knocked off your wish list.
I’m really thinking we may be targeting Micah Parsons in this WR-rich draft.
To me at least would need the trade down for that. Which could or could not be there. Do you think they would take him over Smith or Waddle?
So long as we acquire Jerry Jeudy (reuniting him with Tua) in the trade… once again…
As our guy Phelon posted the other day (thank you, man!), Jerry Jeudy had a 67% catch-rate at Alabama with Tua.
A 67% completion-rate to any receiver is nothing to sneeze at… especially being Jeudy was Tua’s primary deep-threat at Alabama. That’s damn good!
So trading partner would have to be Denver and Jeudy would have to be part of the trade and then they’d have to take Parsons. If goes down like that will be the best pre-draft call ever! 🙂
April 24, 2021 at 5:34 pm
Drink plenty of bourbon and have cigars. 😎👍🐕🥃🥃
I’m already on track for no side effects
Did that last night. No shots but plenty of bourbon and cigars.
Not Friday, but…
April 24, 2021 at 8:24 pm
So trading partner would have to be Denver and Jeudy would have to be part of the trade and then they’d have to take Parsons. If goes down like that will be the best pre-draft call ever! 🙂
If it goes down like that… I’d love to see it happen! Who knows… ‘GM M13’ has been working at this for well over a decade, as you know.
Thank you, Stanger! If it goes down like that, I was the first to call it… we’ll see what happens in 5 more days, man! CAN’T WAIT!
And once again, most are going back to their original thoughts… the Stealers* would LOVE to nab Najee @ R1P24. We’ve got to beat them to the punch if we REALLY want him.
JUST TO BE CLEAR… no, I wasn’t the firstest (LOL) to entertain trading down to the Broncos @ R1P9 for Jerry Jeudy. But I AM the first to say we should draft Micah Parsons @ R1P9, and then to nab Najee @ R1P18.
We would be SO SET after that!
I don’t get why Jeudy is being considered in trade. He’s a 1st rd pick going into his 2nd year, and it’s not like he was a complete failure last year. Have the Broncos come out and said he’s available in trade?
And I’m not just saying that because of your last few posts, MF13. It seems like I’ve seen it discussed on the board quite a bit.
I believe it’s because Jeudy had so many drops last year… something to the tune of a 47%(?) catch-rate: it was abysmal, despite his overall stats.
For those getting your second shot hydrate before and after. I mean like really hydrate. I did and all I had the next day was a headache and a little bit of fatigue. No fever or flu like symptoms
Say no to Jeudy. Draft our WRs in a deep WR draft
I would take Najee at #18.
I don’t need Najee that bad, he may be too tall and I don’t see that many teams jumping on RB early. 36 should get us one of top 3
Doesn’t make sense on Jeudy. His catch rate was 47%, but with Tua it was much higher, therefore he works for us, but if they trade with us there will be a different QB in Denver, not the one that completed 47% to him, so why cutoff your nose to spite your face?
It wasn’t much higher – mid 60’s. I posted it a couple days ago.
FMU Consensus Mock Draft – Let’s try to set a date, not much time left. I know Piggy is not available Monday and unfortunately, I’m not available Tuesday. Does either tonight, or Wednesday work for y’all?
Steve – How’s 6’3 working out for Derrick Henry?
There’s always going to be anomalies
True, but he did the job against top competition and did it well. Nothing shows any reason why he won’t be as good as a pro RB.
I probably will just drop by the FMU draft. I am kind of busy this week so don’t plan around my schedule but I will drop in and of course add my 2 cents or is that 2 Bitcoins
I can do it any night but you guys consensus always sucks lol
Serious???? We were 10 for fucking 10 last year, until the Jets ruined it by not taking Jerry Jeudy.
After that it got very ugly
Well once you get one wrong, it starts to snowball. I’m gonna run with that excuse, see if it sticks. lol
NEW BLOG UP!!!
where is it, lol is it a secret?
Ken, lol not really, buffet doesnt like the coins, i love the cryps
i do everything buffet does not do
he says avoid the coins and penny stocks, but i slam them like a dog eating raw meat, lol
i respect buffett for what he has accomplished, but dont need him to make triple digit percent gains every month
buffet is a billionaire, while he seems like a good guy to most, it makes the news as recently as last week how he shorted a stock on inside information which is illegal and unethical
its basically theft
all billionaires are thieves IMO, all of them
