    Guess since in the slow zone for Dolphins news, Krabbs explored when the Phins could next go on Hard Knocks. And did learn something.

    Teams can be forced to go on the HBO show unless:
    * have a first-year head coach
    * have made the playoffs in the last two seasons
    * appeared on the show in the past 10 years.

    Unless Flores gets fired in 2022 or we make the playoffs that means earliest year we can be forced on the show is 2023. Cause in 2012 we learned how much Vontae Davis loves his grandma.

    Not even entertaining that Flores would offer us up to HBO.

    I hate working holidays. I hate when I go to get a paper clip there is like 4-5 all clipped together and drop those, pick up another to find one by itself only to find the next one and the next one after that clipped to another damn paperclip. WTF! lol

    To make me feel better, I went to the desk of the person who irritates me the most in this office and clipped all her paperclips together. Even double and triple clipped them sumbitches. When she goes to get one she is going to get fifty. LOL I must be the most immature 57y.o. I know. 🙂

    • stangerx says:

      LOL — it’s cool so long as you tell her.

      Thought a Holiday Weekend would be prime time for you, or maybe that comes later on.

    Another thing that made me feel good is that my boss is a 6’3 270 pound country boy who is tough as nails, would bite the head off a rattlesnake tough, but is scared shitless of spiders that invade his space. Freaks the fuck out.

    Every morning he comes in and within the 1st hour he empties the safe to count the money. Before doing that he opens his desk drawer to make sure his gun is in there. We are not in the best part of town. I was able to sneak over to the flea market yesterday and as I was browsing I came across this fake big hairy wolf spider. This thing is no shit real looking. You can even bend the legs a little.

    Anyway, it is hiding in his gun drawer with one leg on the pistol grip waiting for him to open the drawer. It will be looking right at him.

    I have access to our office security cameras through my cell phone where I can watch in real time. I am going to sit back and watch while I drink my coffee at home Tuesday morning. lol

    Stanger, been steady but no busier than any other weekend so far.

    • stangerx says:

      Maybe not the same customer base, but when waited tables could never figure out why our restaurant would be so dead the Sunday before a Monday holiday. Not like people had to get up for work.

    I thought you said olive oil is bad for you before?
    ____________________________________________-

    nope, Olive oil is very healthy for you unless you heat it, it then becomes rancid.
    use avocado or coconut oil to cook with.

    Title of former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s upcoming book:

    “Republican Rescue: Saving the Party from Truth Deniers, Conspiracy Theorists, and the Dangerous Policies of Joe Biden.”

  8. stangerx says:

    He now has 30 years and 8 suspensions in his history. Must be really good.

  9. sb7mvp says:

    Happy Fourth from the Nation’s capital! Biden had an ice cream truck at the national mall giving out free ice cream. Lol. You better believe I got some.

    • stangerx says:

      Sounds like the reception hall is a sky box. 🙂

      That’s really cool, but you do know your mission is to dig up dirt on Liam Eichenberg?

      • Ken says:

        There are 2 reception in the sky box area but the essentially run the length of the stadium on each side. I assume on game days they use the reception as serving stations for the sky box patrons as the sky boxes are attached to the reception halls

      • Ken says:

        Also the school must rake in tons of money from weddings. We were there Friday and Saturday. There was one wedding Friday night and 3 on Saturday. 2 of them simultaneously in the stadium and the other was in one of their banquet facilities. All the guests stayed at the hotel on campus called the Morris Inn. Literally almost ran into Jerome Bettis on the elevator

      • stangerx says:

        Guess if you went to Notre Dame having Touchdown Jesus officiate the nuptials is mandatory.

        Assuming each wedding includes on field pics of the wedding party. How else could it be?

      • Ken says:

        Actually wedding party lined and ran a few plays

      • stangerx says:

        Did the priest catch the Hail Mary? 🙂

      • Ken says:

        No but he could. He was the priest for the basketball and football teams. Looked like in his prime he could have played QB or small forward

  10. stangerx says:

    “When I was in elementary school, I feared that I was lesbian. When I was in middle school, I came out to my family and close friends as bisexual. When I was in high school, I discovered pansexuality and thought, ‘That’s the flag for me.’ I’ve recently learned more about demisexuality and have believed that that identity resonates with me most,”

    — Michaela Kennedy-Cuomo, the youngest daughter of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo
    ————————-
    Demisexual is an individual who only feels sexually attracted to someone when they have an emotional bond. A demisexual person can be gay, straight, bisexual, or pansexual, and can have any gender identity. So basically anything goes so long as not into one-night stands.

  11. Mike E. says:

    What I can’t understand is why people with a specific deviant sexual preference feels the need to classify themselves and why anyone gives them the microphone or the ink. Who gives a fuck if you have a vacuum fetish and date a Hoover and identify as a Dyson? Keep it to yourself fuckface and enjoy it! No one else needs to know and you don’t get a special fucking flag for it or government protection or financial aid for vacuum replacement parts.

  13. CavalierKong says:

    So if you’re only into blonde women that eat from the palm of your hand -literally- does that make you apesexual?

  14. pheloniusphish says:

    Makes you lonely. Plenty of blondes out there, but finding one that will eat from the palm of your hand is tough.

  15. Mike E. says:

    Interesting, and very believable . . .

    • ocalarob says:

      she was having a private conversation and a recording device picked it up, it’s blown way out of proportion. but let’s cry racism anyway.
      unhappy that she had lost work due to ESPN being influenced by racism.
      it wasn’t about the black girl it was about ESPN, she apologized to her anyway but didn’t get a response back. classless.
      ESPN is woke, nothing to report there.

      • Mike E. says:

        I’m not crying white on black racism. I actually think there’s a good case of racism the other way here, against whites, and I think it’s happening more and more. As they keep promoting “white privilege” and “white supremacy”, the needle is going to swing the other way and people will hate whites more and more. I think it needs to stop, it’s out of control.

      • CavalierKong says:

        Unfortunately it’s a one way street.

        If their roles had been reversed, nobody would have cared that she said the other girl got the job because she was white. The only story would have been the debate over whether it was true or not.

    i was just wondering, when you go to get your driver license, what hair color do you tell them when you are as bald as a babies ass?

  17. stangerx says:

    Sorta not right to see people in America marching through the streets in identical uniform-like dress and full face ISIS-like masks. And maybe they shouldn’t have chosen Philly….. needed a police escort to get back to their vehicles.

    • steveccnv says:

      Don’t know anything about this group, but wouldn’t assume they’re white supremacists just because those on the left say they are.

      Most of these types of groups are nationalists, that’s why they use Patriot in the name

      • stangerx says:

        Whatever they are this just ain’t right….. and they chose to do it late at night.

      • steveccnv says:

        Don’t hear you complaining about blm and antifa violently marching thru the streets

      • stangerx says:

        Then you haven’t paid enough attention. Peaceful protests are one thing. But if violent locke’em up. These guys came with shields.

      • steveccnv says:

        So you denounce antifa and blm?

      • stangerx says:

        steve — I denounce antifa in total and the elements of blm that break the law. Always have.

      • steveccnv says:

        Clintonesque words on BLM, why not just denounce them?

      • stangerx says:

        steve — cause I think they have the right to say what they believe even if don’t agree with it. Lots of groups like that for me. Believe in free speech. Don’t you?

    • Tim Knight says:

      What did they expect this to accomplish? As if people are going to change their minds and say “okay, I want to join your stupid club?”

      Protests are ridiculous and don’t accomplish anything.

      • stangerx says:

        Think they expected what they did to be a power move that would hit the news, and it did. Did you know what the Patriot Front was before this? Good for recruiting like such stuff was for the Proud Boys.

      • Tim Knight says:

        Yes, I was aware of them from some documentary I saw a few years ago. They are an American white supremacist, neo-fascist, and American nationalist group which utilizes imagery of patriotism, liberty, and other widely accepted American values to promote its ideology.

        Not sure how white supremacist and neo-fascist equates with patriotism and liberty. Idiots!

  18. stangerx says:

    Interesting stat: “Last season, per Sports Info Solutions, NFL quarterbacks attempts 18.983 passes, and of those passes, 7,998 went to targets in the slot. That 42.1% slot target rate throughout the league tells you everything you need to know about how teams see the importance of the slot receiver these days.”

    Almost makes you wish we’d drafted a slot guy. 🙂

    • steveccnv says:

      We didn’t draft a slot guy, we drafted THE slot guy.

      Mostly easy passes to these receivers, that allow you to maneuver between the 20s.

      Cheats way

      • stangerx says:

        Article pulled that from was a ranking of the best slot receivers (with no draftees). Tyreek was #1. And we know who Waddle is compared to at least.

    On another note, never understood why anyone thought of a vacuum as an alternative option for a blow job. LOL

  21. bailbondmike says:

    Last I checked a shield is not a weapon. It’s for protection. Not like BLM and ANTIFA carrying baseball bats among other shit to bust windows and destroy tax payer paid for police cars. Not to mention the ones who took over city blocks in Portland for months wielding AK47’s and shit.

    Notice in the photo’s the groups cooperation with the police. No resisting. Haven’t heard about or seen anything in the photo’s showing any looting or buildings burning. No one running up to someone and sucker punching them just for the hell of it. No one yelling in someone’s face while they are trying to eat dinner.

    Gray Hall is just another left wing ABC news affiliate hack trying to stoke the racial fire in an attempt to blow his way up the left wing media ladder by promoting left wing agenda.

    China is on the cusp of taking over half the world and we have a WH that is totally fucking lost and an embarrassment. It is filtering down to the top brass of the military. Our oppositions have no fear of the US and see the US as a joke right now and it is. You should really be keeping an eye on China and everything they are doing around the world and not just militarily or economically. Two years from now China will be the new #1 world power.

    There will be nothing to stop it because our WH and the left wingnut democrats are stuck on continuing to divide the country so they may conquer we the people. Whether they are stopped or succeed does not matter. It is getting to the point of being to late.

    • stangerx says:

      Can’t you be against groups like the Patriot Front and Antifa? Just not a fan of extremists of any stripe. And their dress, masks , shields and late night march through the streets reminded me of the Brown Shirts in style.

      • Tim Knight says:

        Yes you can, I’m against every group that is extreme and close-minded and has no idea what the USA is supposed to stand for. They’re all misguided.

        Was he against democracy?

      • steveccnv says:

        Absolutely, he’s pushing the far left agenda, that would make him against democracy.

        You do get that a socialist form of government and a democratic one are not mutually exclusive?

        I don’t like Biden’s policies either as a Republican, but hardly see him as a Socialist (that’s Bernie). But saw the far greater threat to this country in his opponent, who is not really a Republican either….. least by the definition I grew up with.

    Stupid people read these stats and say Jones sucked last year, but that’s not all there is to grading a DB.

    Every time a pass wasn’t thrown to his cover, on a passing play, is a positive.

    Do you want the guy that gets thrown at 20 plays a game gives up 11 receptions for 110 yards or the guy that gets thrown at 5 times and gives up 3 catches for 40 yards?

    • CavalierKong says:

      LOL, Dolphins fans are representing in the comments section.

    • Tim Knight says:

      The area we struggled in pass defense was on crossing routes because of man coverage. Howard shut down receivers many times as well. Our CB tandem is arguably the best in the league. Better pass rush and slot play could make us almost impossible to throw against consistently.

    I don’t understand why “Russia, Russia, Russia” isn’t being hollered any longer with Biden in office. What’s more, it seems as though China is our close ally with Biden in office (LOL). Additionally, Biden is trying to restore 0bama’s Iran Deal, to make them nuclear proficient sooner than later — at our expense — as they threaten to kill “little Satan” (Israel) and “BIG Satan” (USA).

    https://phinphanatic.com/2021/07/07/miami-dolphins-3-bold-predictions-wide-receivers/

    Things that will make Tua better than last year, that are easily attainable or already attained:

    Playbook now designed for him, WRs now on team, full offseason in the playbook with ability to change plays, fully recovered from hip.

    For these reasons, think he’s already taken the next step.

    Compared to Herbert who think he’s as likely to regress as take the next step.

    As for these bold predictions in article, prediction 1 we don’t need Fuller to lead the team in receiving yards, we just need him to be himself as he was last year.

    Prediction 2 Parker being PB alternate, he just needs to be on the field and he’ll do what he does.

    Prediction 3 Waddle under 700 yards, agree with that, but don’t think it’s much of a bold prediction based on all the quality WRs we have, think the over would be bolder.

    My bold prediction is we average 30 pts a game and win 13 games, but that’s not the subject of the article, so as a team we’re in the top 5 in receiving yards by WRs don’t care who gets what stats,, just be great as a unit

    Ricky is in my HOF and that’s all that matters.

    I see Bowden as WR6, with Grant WR7 (Williams and Wilson are my WR4 and WR5), and both making the roster for week 1, question will be if they both are on the roster week 2, when Fuller comes off suspension.

    Sure would like to have Fuller week 1, but without him it gives us the option to hold another WR for 1 more week, then evaluate the team needs

    • pheloniusphish says:

      If they are going to cut them they will do it before the first week of th/e season. Otherwise their salaries are guaranteed as vested veterans.

      • steveccnv says:

        Forgot about that.

        I’d think Grant has some trade value, but maybe not too much at that salary

  39. steveccnv says:

    Good contract article. https://www.pff.com/news/nfl-salary-cap-terms-tricks-to-know-ahead-of-nfl-free-agency-2021

    A prime example of total guarantees being very misleading played out already this offseason. Miami Dolphins linebacker Kyle Van Noy signed a four-year, $51 million contract with $30 million in total guarantees in 2020, but that deal ultimately ended up as a one-year, $15 million deal. Van Noy’s entire 2021 base salary — $12.5 million — was guaranteed for injury only at signing and was set to become fully guaranteed the fifth day of the 2021 league year in March. That’s why the Dolphins moved on before that date. Van Noy will now see none of that money.

    So that “horrible” contract we gave KVN wasn’t so bad afterall

    Gives a whole new meaning to the phrase “Dirty Cop.” And man would have done the streaker thing too.
    —————————-
    A former Florida cop is gearing up to serve a decade in prison for forcing a pair of teens to strip naked and run in order to evade arrest.

    Martinez was convicted of extortion and unlawful compensation for forcing two 18-year-olds, Kyle Shoulta and Remy Riley, to strip and then run naked in order to avoid arrest. Shoulta testified that he “was given a choice of go to jail or run, so I took the choice to run naked.”

    The couple was on their way to a concert when Martinez pulled them over. Shoulta apparently had run a red light and there was marijuana and alcohol in the vehicle. Instead of arresting the couple, Martinez lured them to a remote area where he instructed them to strip and then run naked. He told them that doing this would get them out of the arrest.

    “I took my pants off. I took my shirt off,” Riley said. “I kind of looked at him like, ‘Is this enough?’ He’s like, ‘That’s it?’ I turned around from them. I turned away. I took my underwear off. I took my bra off.”

  43. Krishna says:

    I think it’s odd the NFL is now doing pain management studies with pot. So ridiculous (sarcasm intended).

    Yet, athletes were suspended for a non-performance enhancing drug (lol, I keep forgetting it’s illegal, too).

    The WADA decision on MJ is ridiculous. Seems like a good ole boy network.

    I have never understood the descrimination between it and alcohol. I’m sure there’s a reason, just wonder what it is.

  44. steveccnv says:

    Ricky will always be in my ‘Ring of Honor’ and ‘Hall of Fame’. I will never condone the use of MJ (nor condemn it), but I absolutely understand where he’s coming from. And as others have rightfully stated, MJ is not a performance-enhancing drug.

    Ricky and I still stay in contact with each other, and he really is a good dude. He’s very complicated (meaning BRIGHT), and he doesn’t have a bad bone in his entire body. Just my $.02.

    • Tim Knight says:

      I never cared that Ricky smoked weed. He made his own life choices when he did and retired. I hold no grudges with him but as good as he was, he didn’t have the stats to be HOF or the Dolphins Ring of Honor. No doubt how he went about things hurt him though.

      Was he the only player a team gave up their entire draft to take him with the first pick? Wasn’t that Ditka with the Saints? Any other time that’s happened?

      This is why the answer is no. Too many other guys in that range. You need to have special numbers.

    Really dead time of year so football related. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2021/07/06/had-nfl-been-more-accepting-of-marijuana-ricky-williams-believes-he-would-be-in-canton/

    Ricky, get over it. You don’t deserve Canton, you made your choice. Maybe he should stick to trying to promote his product…or does no one want to talk about that? It must be frustrating…
    ——————-
    I wanted to address you, man, so as to say that I ALSO understand your point of view. Ricky is certainly a polarizing figure, and I don’t mean to say that I agree with every choice he’s made.

    You bring up valid points, none of which I can disagree with. Everybody’s a little bit different, and Ricky is certainly a bird of a different feather.

  53. Krishna says:

    Again, I see the justification of “get over it”.

    He is speculating and there is no regret inin his comments. You can read between the lines whatever you want, but I don’t see it.

    In fact, he states he wouldn’t change a thing.

  54. Krishna says:

    ^I don’t see the justification……

  56. wyoming85 says:

    I see why the country is slowly circling toward the drain!

    Ricky is a quitter!

    No sympathy at all!

    • Tim Knight says:

      Not sure I agree with that. He is who he is.

      • wyoming85 says:

        He quit the team! That is the very definition of a quitter!

      • mf13ss says:

        Wyoming, Ricky had issues. In fact, all of us have issues to some degree.
        I agree with Tim: he is who he is.

      • mf13ss says:

        So in the draft process, we attempt to identify those who may have overriding issues. Ricky got through the cracks, due to his exemplary performance on the field and in school.

        The Draft process will never be perfect, but we had one helluva RB in Ricky Williams.

  57. wyoming85 says:

    Oh I feel for Ricky and his issues.

    But that’s a different conversation than Canton, or the ring of honor!

  58. Mike E. says:

    I agree with Wyo. Quitter!

  59. Tim Knight says:

    I never said Ricky was good or bad. He is what he was and is.

  60. Krishna says:

    Yep, I”ve quit before when I realized I was the workhorse and carrying the load. It was my health and well being vs the company’s selfish interest in not hiring help.

    Ricky has social/anxiety disorder, as well. I don’t understand it, but I don’t judge it.

    Wannstedt was clueless and one of the worse coaches in Dolphin history. Ricky had the most carries of any RB in the NFL when he was with them. That’s all Wannstedt knew, run Ricky, run.

    His body after 10 seasons needed rest or relief. He didn’t see that anything was going to change, so he quit. Call it what you want. He stood up for what he thought was best for himself physically, mentally, and emotionally. He made a life decision. He never went back to football as far as I recall. Some might call that retirement….

    ____
    My HOF is the only one that matters, but it’s nice to see you move the goalposts of the discussion once you couldn’t support your original argument. The HOF will be full of Patriots with ties to cheating and there’s an entire Steelers dynasty that was rampant steroid use. But sure, demonize Ricky for using a medicinal plant because you’ve been programmed to see it as bad.

    • New Age says:

      Not programmed. You seem to be programmed to believe whatever you want to which is definitely not the role of a skeptic. I don’t think you understand my argument but I can break it down into easier chunks for you? There was no moving of goalposts but maybe I can explain that saying to you better?

      I’m not demonizing Ricky beyond the factual statement that he couldn’t follow the rules. I think it’s funny he’s still talking about what-ifs when the reality is that he’s not getting in. If it didn’t bother him, he wouldn’t bring it up a decade later. Any other confusion?

  67. Mike E. says:

    LMAO Krishna – The bourbon and weed puke was me. This was some powerful stuff. Just some background here. When I was say 16-21, I smoked at least a few times a week, some weeks every day. That weed was nothing like the weed you get today. I stopped for 35 years and when my mother in law passed away a few weeks ago, my brother in law in from Las Vegas asked if we were interested in smoking week. We got weed delivered (what a world!) and the first night we smoked I felt fine although it was somewhat hallucinogenic. We smoked again a couple of weeks later and it made me dizzy and nauseous and I threw up. I think I need either a milder strain or just to stick to bourbon.

  68. sb7mvp says:

    So none of you disparaging Ricky have left jobs that were bad working environments to put yourselves in a better place personally?

      I’ve read a couple of stories about this on MSN which I assume fits into the ‘MSM’ category. They are basically a form of sovereign citizen militia. The only real difference is while sovereign citizens are usually predominately white, this group is black. That’s probably the biggest reason it hit the news at all.

      We’ve had numerous sovereign citizen issues in the Sacramento area that are never covered by anything except local news, guys booby trapping their land when it becomes tax forfeit, etc. I used to deal with guys like this on occasion. They’re coocoo

      • steveccnv says:

        I’ve seen several videos with those claiming sovereign citizen, mostly whackjobs

  71. steveccnv says:

    Ricky chose to stop playing for many reasons, which I respected, because of that he didn’t have an HOF career, now he’s saying he did.

    How did we go from someone debating Ricky’s claim to MJ is a gateway drug to NFL rules are outdated to the rest of the MJ talk?

  72. steveccnv says:

    If someone like Waddle has huge stats this year it could mean the rest of the WRs aren’t performing up to par.

        Maybe you didn’t watch Fox News on election night, when they called AZ way too early and GA projecting to for Biden even though Trumo had a huge lead.

        Did they know something at that time, that was going to happen overnight?

      • sb7mvp says:

        You posted something the “MSM won’t report on” then proceeded to post the largest MSM news site reporting on it.

      • stangerx says:

        “And by the way Fox is as liberal as the rest” but yet “To those of us on the right we don’t consider Fox “MSM””? So what makes Fox not MSM? It’s bigger than any of the other cable news places.

    ___________
    It doesn’t matter what you consider it. FOX is mainstream media. It’s the largest of it’s kind in America. This isn’t a debatable topic. You’re also the first person I’ve ever heard call FOX liberal.

    • stangerx says:

      Not talking steve, but from what have seen depends on what is going down. When the MSM is brought up as not telling the truth, Fox is not included cause normally puts out whatever the person is complaining about.

      But then the far right (including Trump at times) loves to bash Fox for being too liberal politically cause they try to keep a somewhat even-keeled news operation (not talking Hannity, Tucker, etc.). Complaints would include not embracing that Trump won the election.

      So it is a complicated relationship btwn Fox and the far right.

      • sb7mvp says:

        Right, but that’s based on feelings not facts, and we both know that those hard core conservatives love to quote a phrase about that.

Not hard to do at all. Lots of fun (or not), depending on one’s POV.

      • twicethethe says:

        Steve – I see what you and BBMike were getting at now (why is it still doing it to this day). Might be a technological battle, as I think there is likely ways to detect a redirect’s origins and cancel the redirect from the receiver, but there may be ways from the redirector that may circumvent those. Stanger – as far as illegality – nothing that I know of if you are the owner of the domain and approving the particular redirect from your own domain. Not sure though.

    I’d be real curious to see NFL execs rankings of these guys (as opposed to PFF). No matter how you slice it though, X is in the top echelon as those guys are probably 1a, 1b, 1c, etc.

    In Sieler’s final 8 games of 2020, he was among the most productive defensive linemen in the NFL against the run. His 9 TFL’s were tied for second in the NFL with Aaron Donald and JJ Watt-and he did it on fewer snaps than either of them.

    Sieler’s ability against the run is where he really shined, but he was also Miami’s best interior pass rusher. He led the team in sacks (3.5), sack rate (1.2%), pressures (22), and pressure rate (7.6%) from the interior.

    He accepted and chose his path. He did what he felt was best for him at the time. He retired and did something else.

    We added a key defender in all three phases in trading for McKinney, drafting Phillips and Holland in the 1st and 2nd round respectively.

Phillips on the edge, McKinney inside but will also move around, and Holland as a versatile DB with ballhawk skills. This defense has top 10 potential if these guys play up to expectations. 🙂

    Krishna, you were asking about Ricky’s retirement earlier. He left football right before camp was about to open in like ‘04 I think despite facing a lengthy suspension. So when he decided to return he had to serve the suspension then when he finally got back he got injured playing Steelers in Camoron’s illustrious stint. By the time he got back he was sharing snaps with Ronnie in Parcels regime, with may he Rest In Peace Tony Sporano , and finally retired for good in like 12 or 13. He left in his prime the first time.

    • Krishna says:

      Thanks son. I appreciate you. It was a while ago and didn’t feel like looking up all the specifics. That’s why 5 suspensions not 4. He basically said, fuck it.

    Seiler is a beast, didn’t realize he had such gaudy stats, he was always in at crunch time I remember that. I’ll bet you if you polled the team he’d be the guy no one would want to fight. Maybe besides Davis because he’s a freaking giant. He’s a mountain man who still lives in a trailer.

    I love Ricky and posted live-links here to his appearances on “The Apprentice” and more… seemed as though most were not interested.

    When looking at their stats, #39 and #34 are very close in career numbers.

    • son of a son of a shula says:

      Except for 3 straight Super Bowls and a Sea of Hands away from likely a fourth. I’m still broken hearted. But that’s the big difference to 39.

      • son of a son of a shula says:

        And yes I’m aware the Raiders game wasn’t an AFC Championship game. Still.

    • mf13ss says:

      And in short, ANYBODY who attempts to call me an anti-Ricky individual, I’ll get defensive!

      Stanger, I need to practice your lesson to me better, sir. I know who I am, but I just got challenged and in an insulting manner. I know I can do better.

    Nope you aren’t the only one Phish!

    I have to be able to pass a random drug test to work!

  103. Krishna says:

    mf13ss….you did say you supported RW and in your respone to Newage you white-washed your support of him.

    Balls to walls, newage was throwing shit around and you smeared in it instead of standing up for RW who is your pen pal.

    It was a weak endorsement and you did not defend him.

    I am not that kind of person. Can you umderstand me now?

  104. wyoming85 says:

    Ricky is a quitter!

  105. wyoming85 says:

    Ok I’ll give you that one Krishna!

  106. wyoming85 says:

    You can aspire to greatness!

  107. Krishna says:

    Fair enough.

    • Tim Knight says:

      How do you cover Fuller, Waddle, Parker, Gesicki and Wilson when we go empty backfield? Most teams don’t have enough coverage for that. 🙂

      Our offense has increased their speed to ludicrous level. LOL

      • Krishna says:

        Exactly, and Tua needs to see all of them and the coverage to find the 2 or 3 that will/should be open…..lol.

      • Tim Knight says:

        Yep! We’re building around him in all phases. That’s what you do with a young QB.

        If you believe what Tua’s personal trainer said guesstimating, based on last year until now, Tua was probably 65% last year physically compared to right now. That’s a big difference.

        This will not be the same team as last year. We should be much better. Lots of pieces in place.

      • Krishna says:

        I know some here think it’s all plug and play….discounting major injury, rehab, NFL, out for a year, yada, yada, let alone missing the QB seminar on throwing mechanics. Tough to pick up the ball and run with it under those circumstances….no other rookie QB did that last year.

        He may fail, but his odds of success have greatly improved.

      • Krishna says:

        That OL needs to take it up a step or two.

  109. CavalierKong says:

    I remember and am still pissed about that Ricky injury against the Steelers. One of the Steeler pricks stomped on his chest when he was down. I want to say it was a torn pectoral.

    • CavalierKong says:

      Just looked it up, he stomped on his shoulder.

    • CavalierKong says:

      What I didn’t remember is that it was Lawrence Timmons who did it, and he would later become one of the Dolphins.

      • son of a son of a shula says:

        Yeah and the molly he got from Pouncey freaked his ass out and he went AWOL right before the season was starting.

    Steveccnv. We might hit the Phins vs raiders in Vegas. You up for a West Fest ?

    I think he’s underestimating us but an ok doldrums article. I don’t understand the Wentz love, and he’s terrible at prognostications but still something to read. Training camp is less than 3 weeks so we are getting there.

    • Mike E. says:

      I think that guy sucks. Patriots over Dolphins? Uh-uh. There are others that I didn’t like but c’mon

    —————————–
    That was going to be my response. Trips to one side with Fuller, Waddle and Wilson. Parker on the other side then you have Gesicki. Safeties are going to piss themselves.

  114. Mike E. says:

    Rob – I can say the same thing with Gaskin. Maybe you got it backwards

  115. bailbondmike says:

    I don’t want t bring up the discussion of X being a bitch about his contract and whether he is worth it or not. Just going to bring up a trade possibility if it gets to that point.

    M13 had a good trade scenario. I was thinking, with his injury history and fact he is not considered the #1 CB in the NFL by many, he won’t garner a 1st round pick unless by itself.

    I read an article that brought this trade scenario up. What if we traded X to Detroit for their second round pick which could be around #34 to #39 and DE Trey Flowers? Flowers is solid in run D and pass rush which got him his huge contract in Detroit. He played in our system his entire career and knows it inside and out from playing under Flores/Patricia in NE his 1st three seasons and then Patricia in Detroit the last 2 seasons. He did get injured last season but is fine and had nothing to do with his knees or legs. Before last season, he averaged 7 sacks a season, 30 sacks and 9 FF in 67 games played.

    Some of his 2021 base salary is guaranteed, so if I am not mistaken, Detroit would be on the hook for some of his 14 mil this season. After that, he comes at a hit of 16 mil per in 2022 and 2023 but could be restructured.

    Ogbah will be a F/A next year and will demand much more money. Let him ball out this year for that last big contract and get us a nice comp pick.

    Just a thought.

    • bailbondmike says:

      More I think about it, I really like Ogbah though. Wonder how much his camp is asking for? In just one season in this defense he had more production than Flowers ever had in any season in this system. Sheesh, what to do…

    • steveccnv says:

      Detroit wouldn’t be on the hook for his 2021 contract, unless it was worked into the trade.

      In general the team trading for a player is on the hook for current year’s salary, with the guarantee only coming into the equation, if the player is cut.

      Cutting team responsible for guarantees
